HeadLever: FTDA: Google Patrick F. McManus, his stories and books are hilarious!

Growing up in rural Idaho, he was one of my heroes.  Though I am pretty surprised that there are a number of Farkers that actually have read anything PFM or Field and Stream.


I couldn't wait for each issue of Field and Stream to come out, and read all his books.  The night the bear ate Goombaw.  They shoot canoes don't they?  Rubber legs and white tail hairs.  All of his stories brought many a smile to my face!

I thought the article said the police checked them for LESBOS.

Not sure how I got that out of ASBOS, but I did, and was really excited for a few seconds

 They call that a fort? When I was a kid I was building the below picture type stuctures out in the woods at the off the deadend street near my friend's house. He lived right at the edge of town with nothing but woods and farm land beyond. We started building about a half mile into the woods though ours was not as elaborate it did have a kitchen and sleeping areas. It took us most of the summer to build as we kept adding on to it and we were 13 at the start of it. We built it well and it was even there after the winter so the next year we built it up more. We stopped around the summer of our 15th years, but checked back on it when I came back on leave from the service in my 20s and it was still there.

ds615: I don't really care what the kids were doing, or where.
I'm pretty concerned that engaging in "anti-social behavior" is all you need to get a visit from police.
And they take it seriously.

That's farked up.


And if you read the list linked earlier in the thread, "being rude" counts.

Politeness Is Mandatory!!

Ah, good to see that I'm not the only one who finds "Anti-Social" laws to be distressingly Orwellian.

1984 wasn't an instruction manual, you farkers.

you've no idea the types of cretin that make up the body of those who get them. Antisocial behavior is a real issue there, I promise you this.

Man. Go live over there for a year or two. Live just outside the city. Try Manchester, or Glasgow, or Birmingham, shiat, any big one outside London, and come back and tell us all about how orwellian it really is over there. We'll all listen as you tell us how you're glad of the CCTV, as it actually saved your life that night you got your head smashed in for just being there, cos there's an ambulance by your side pronto, and the cops manage to catch the 16yo who was 'making a name' for himself infront of his mates by sneaking up behind you and caving your skull in with a ballpane hammer.

It's really like that, I'm not making it up.

I spent about 5 weeks in the Salford side of Manchester several years ago, and we were warned where to go and where not to go. It was very interesting. Active, in-use, apartment buildings with razor wire fences.

Vitamin Pb: iron de havilland: Jim_Callahan: dfenstrate: Since the event occurred in England, can you tell us how much you hate Brits?

Well, they actually think that soccer is somewhat entertaining on average, it seems like a safe bet to assume that they're automatically wrong about literally everything at all times.

American football might become popular outside the US if it didn't take 3 farking hours for 1 hour of play.

Plus, the leggings, shoulder pads and make up are kind of ghey.

The pants are for 2 purposes. 1) to protect the skin from direct contact. 2) to hold protective pads to protect the players. That way when somebody runs near them they don't have to fall on the ground and clutch their leg in agony.

The shoulder pads protect the chest and upper body. That way when somebody runs hear them they don't have to fall on the ground and cry like a little girl who just lost her dolly.

The make up. Yeah totally ghey. Just like the battle paint worn by Celts and Vikings.

Now I'm going to look at you funny, so I suggest you fall on the ground, and pretend I broke your leg and try to get me a red card. Cause you're so manly.


Still basically rugby for pussies isn't it?

Rugby players have funny shaped balls too, but they don't need helmets, shoulder pads and tights. And stoppages that drag 60 minutes of play out to 3 hours.

And I certainly agree with certain aspects of your argument. Suarez is a diving coont.

They display it publicly.

It's quite unnerving.

That thing they built looks almost exactly like the thing Les Stroud claimed was made by Bigfoot in a recent Survivorman.

Dirty J1: Only in America....can playing OUTSIDE with FRIENDS be considered antisocial, while acceptable "social behavior" is pretty much limited to Xbox live and world of Warcraft. Reason 6,984,727 to hate America.


Reason 6,984,728: Americans can't read.  Or comprehend geography.

(Rik01: ASBO means Antisocial Behavior Order, something we don't have over here. Apparently over there it's like a visit from DCF, a warning from the cops or a restraining order. They usually give them out to adults who are being a PIA to their neighbors.)

To clarify further: The PIA that you're referring to is usually downright Thuggery. It's an ever-growing culture over there, and a GENUINE problem of lower-class areas.

I've no idea if you know what hooliganism is, but you should see rival gangs attack each other over there - it's brick-shyte-in-your-pants crazy to witness. These are human beings who have had it instilled in them to be nothing other than aggressive towards others, who will take great revelry in farking your face in with a wine bottle until your own mother wouldn't recognize your corpse, and then bragging about it to their mates. At the age of 14.

I've lived in such an area (The 'Jungle', Burnbank, Scotland), and I've witnessed more violence and bloodshed on the streets there, in 3 years, than my home city, here, sees in 5 years. No joke.


I've read and heard about that. I've seen incidents on video and find it kind of hard to believe that people accept such behavior there. I mean, they'll flat walk up to someone minding their own business and start a fight.

No guns allowed in the UK, aside from shotguns, but I noticed with these guys there's no shortage of knives. I decided that the typical Hispanic or Black American 'gangsta' wouldn't make it too well over there. Kind of like how hard core Russian criminals aren't afraid of our police since the Russian one's don't worry about little things like police brutality, reading them their rights or tossing them in a jail that resembles a zoo.

Our cops and prisons, to them, are like a vacation.

Then I heard about the soccer hooligans -- and the decision in one country to ban from attending games, anyone from the UK who even looked like one.

We thought it was bad when baseball fans threw batteries and bottles at players on the field. I figured that their culture not only raised them to fight and be overly aggressive, but many probably enjoyed it. Kind of like professional fighters here, who usually get a real high and feel alive when in the ring beating the shiat out of someone.

The UK prisons, from what I learned, aren't exactly as friendly as US ones either. Not as bad as the Russian ones, but certainly some place you'd not want to go. Over here, among certain groups, jail time is a status symbol. They might change their minds after being locked up in a UK prison for a year or so.

No Sir, I understand hooliganism.

Might be best just to start taking them out in the woods and shoot them. I'm aware of some cops here, who when they caught a real PIA, had no problem in taking him out in the scrubs, beating him half to death and when he hauled him into jail, told his superiors that the guy resisted arrest. The majority of them agreed, even though they knew better.

Aw, man, if only! ;-)

Thing is that the vast majority of Brits are just awesome, but the lowest end of the scum classes (the term workingclass is devoid of any meaning here, and is way above these people), yeah, that's what I'm on about - they're the reason, not the excuse, for these 'Orwellian' laws and punishments.

CCTV and ASBO's are actually helping somewhat, but the mentality they're dealing with is also the mentality that breeds young, and often, then 'teaches' their kids to do the same, thus making more of them - there are hoplessly unemployable grandfathers over there who are the same age as me (35)

Meanwhile, here in Soviet Sweden, I'm having trouble deciding if I can morally bring another mouth into the world using my own DNA, when there's an adoption/fostering crisis coming in from war torn countries.


Ugggh - off to take a handfull of betablockers n valium, it noises me up that much!

/thanks for the reply - many folks outside the UK just have NO clue how it is there.

1) It's BALL-PEEN hammer. Sheesh.

2) How about less cameras, and more cops on patrol. You know, stop the crimes from happening in the first place, rather then just have evidence they happened afterwords.
