(The Scottish Government)   Scotland to legalize same-sex marriage, which just makes sense since the men there all wear fetching skirts and knee-high stockings and handling long thick poles is the national sport   (scotland.gov.uk) divider line 120

So you don't find Scottish men attractive then, do ye?

Can Scotland legally do this?

I know they are an autonomous state within the UK, but considering that the Monarch is also the head of church I would assume that only the monarch could issue such writs. Its a shame, really, that religious institutions would have so much influence on civil law.

/I hate the fact that the church and state are intertwined on marriage.

UK law is confusing. It has a constitution not made from one document, but from hundreds. I really do not know how much power the monarchy still has.

Anyways, I do hope that Scotland passes this thing immediately. Worry about potential legal issues later.

I think the EU commission rules on human rights may hold sway in this case. The UK is autonomous in currency and other areas, but at a commerce and immigration and human rights level they're firmly within the EU boundary.

When I think of all my Scot friends, brawling is third or fourth on the list of outstanding attributes. But they will not hesitate to become.... excited in some circumstances. Hey, it can happen to the best of us.

No true Scotsman would ever be gay.

Or, maybe that was drink a blended.

I thought for a moment that the headline said "felching skirts".

That would be a logical idea.

Not gay. Just .... European
 
2012-07-25 09:48:36 PM
went to a wedding (hetero) in Ediburgh a few years back. Around Christmastime, they had a very rare significant snow storm - all the Christmas lights and ancient streets and snow falling and mulled wine and scotch. Farking magical, I tells ya. Rented a kilt for the wedding - one of the most freeing experiences of my life. Highly recommend any man who has the opportunity to attend an event where a kilt would be appropriate to absolutely consider it

You see if you ask me we're heterosexual by default, not by decision. It's just a question of who you fancy. It's all about aesthetics and it's fark all to do with morality.

But you try telling Begbie that.

Vaseline.
I forgot to bring some and was having a hard time finding it at our hotel until I found out a friend of ours staying down the hall had some. I wasn't gonna be able to pull it off without it, I tried and was already feeling it after 5 mins or walking around the room getting ready

In Montana, transporting a sheep without a chaperon in the vehicle itself is still against the law. There's good reason for that.

You do realize that an Anglican church is not a requirement to get married, right?

cman: UK law is confusing. It has a constitution not made from one document, but from hundreds. I really do not know how much power the monarchy still has.


"None" would be your answer there, or at least, no formal power. The queen reads state papers daily, and is briefed on even the most sensitive stuff. She also has a private conversation with the PM every week, which various former PMs have described as the only place where they can talk completely freely about their work, and get serious, unvarnished advice from someone with no agenda. Institutional memory, really. The Queen knows everything going on with her government and can offer and advice with a perspective going back to Winston Churchill.

That, and she takes care of all the Ceremonial Head of State bits, which a lot of countries find quite useful to separate out- you'll find a lot of modern democracies have a President and a PM, with the President handling the role a monarch would, for example, which leaves the Head of Government to be as basely political as he or she likes. And, since the Royal Family is big, you can send members to a lot of rather small events, which really instills a kind of national identity the US doesn't have. That Head of State role can be powerful in other ways too- see the recent couple visits to Ireland, which were apparently the Queen's idea. The state visit to the Republic of Ireland was a gigantic step in mending the relationship between the two, and the handshake with the former head of the IRA just last month was a really farking big moment.

So yeah- inspirational leader role, but an apolitical one.

Now, as to the real point of this thread, I'm a fan of islays. If it's not loaded with peat and smoke, it doesn't deserve to be called scotch. My current nice scotch is this. It was a gift, and I love it. Tad pricy for regular consumption, however:

The only way Laphroaig bottles anything that's not peaty and smoky is the day the hell... Well, if it burned over the whiskey would absorb the smoke, wouldn't it?
