If my wife were on the rag for 22 years I might just lose it myself.

22 year period. That maxi pad must be rank!

A 22 year.... oh, nevermind

Anyone else think he's got kind of a Viggo Mortensen thing going on?

Lord British, I am disappointed in you!

If it took him 22 years, you'd think she would have had time to get out of the way.

Better headline: British Lord beats his wife for 22 years.

And a subtext: Also, he used some drugs and alcohol, like everyone else on the planet. Don't know we are even mentioning it, it's not like excuses or explains his behavior in any way. He's just a arsehole, regardless what his other hobbies are.


Oh, and props to the wife for staying with this douchebag for 22 years. Seriously, it's awesome that she chose to take that crap from him for 22 years, saving any future people he might meet from getting a relationship with him and getting abused. Pretty selfless act. Weaker people would just go to the police, but this lady is *hardcore* and takes matters into her own hands.

22 years?  she probably should have gone to the doctor after a couple of weeks.

Oh I know but he kind of looks like him too, yeah?  All gaunt and angular and full of malice.

Explain to me: if you're a British lord, do you work? Or do you live on old money?

22 years? That's a long period.

Depends on how smart your ancestors where. If they diversified their income you might begolden, if they just continued to live based on their rents paid you're farked.

Good question. I wanna know, too.

Also, how did the prison guard speak to him? Was it like, "Good morning, you lordship, will you be swamping out the bog today or will your valet be doing that for you?" And maybe throwing in a 'Guv'nor' every now and again.

Maybe it was more, "Prisoner 77432 Lord Somerset, please report for your daily session with Impious Bumsplatter in the snogging room."

Lords are lords for life, right?
 
2014-02-06 06:54:31 PM
Wow, things really went down hill for him after EA farked over Ultima.

One hundred years ago this would have qualified him as a party whip in the House of Lords.

Depends. Thatcher took out a lot of the landed wealth (98% estate tax on land, IIRC), so for many these days, it's just prestige. But if your ancestors were smart enough to move money out of land, you're probably doing alright.

Ain't that the truth. Society has changed a bit, thankfully.

Don't they get some small income from serving in Parliament?
 
2014-02-06 08:10:02 PM
 Damn it all. I came here to make snarky comment about this explaining Ultima 7, but never mind, few people already beat me to the Lord British jokes.

U7 still sucked.

From my understanding, they're probably loaded unless their ancestors spent it all on blow, they get to be known legally as Lord Soandso, and get to vote and run for positions in the House of Lords, because for some unfathomable reason Britain in the year of our lord 2014, still gives special political rights to hereditary nobility.

Who form only a small part of the House of Lords, if memory serves (and actually were elected). But it's a pretty complicated affair, with a few reforms still ongoing. I think they'll keep the bishops, though.
