Horizon: Lady J: The Envoy: Summoner101: Lady J: dyhchong: Lady J: There was a fight outside my house last night. We heard a smash of breaking glass (thrown bottle, it turns out), and then a lot of shouting and scuffling. Lord J went outside and there was a dude with a baseball bat kicking off at the little scallies who hang around the basketball court and shot w33d. Big brother of head scally came 'steaming' up the road on his electric scooter and calmly tried to defuse the siuation. I was actually really impressed. Someone must have called the cops though cos a whole bunch showed up really quickly (donut shop obvs sold out).

let me help you out...

scally - tracksuit-sporting young man frequently in trouble with the boys in blue for petty offences
shotting weed - selling cannabis
steaming - emitting visible water vapour / very drunk / wading into a situation with enthusiasm

Were there dustbins or hooligans involved?

Scallies are hooligans, just with more man-made fibre apparel.

The bottle may have come out of a dustbin prior to its launch, but whether that bin was a wheelie bin or a fixed receptacle is currently unknown.

Ex council estate so we're not kerbside property. Hence no dustbins or wheelie bins, just those big communal bins.

I'm not sure scally and hooligan are that interchangeable... a hooligan is a yob, loud and probably violent, or at least physical.

Scallies can be a biatcheeky, even endearing. When I hear scally I always envisage a little skinny, chalkwhite yout, wearing a grey tracksuit. Head w33d shotter (see above) fits this description perfectly.

/I like words

Okay this weed shiatting think is just making me laugh. What happened to Becky? She decided to shoot up, injected a marijuana and died on the spot.

You can 'shot' anything, it just means selling. Shotting weed... shotting brown (h).. shotting moody Sky boxes.

PunGent: Lady J: a hooligan is a yob, loud and probably violent, or at least physical.

How would that compare to "wide boy"?  is that still slang there?

/have cousins in London, one apparently went that route


Wide means streetwise, you've seen some things, you know some people... you could be dodgy given the opportunity. You can be wide without being criminal, or yobbish. That said, some people who are wide are sketchy af.

I know a lot of wide boys... they're mostly harmless.
 
2017-10-06 08:04:31 AM  
Oops, moody in that context means fake or dodgy (stolen)... a moody tenner is a counterfeit ten pound note.

TFA shows why safety training should be mandatory for firearm ownership, certificate signed before delivery of the firearm.  Gun safes or at least trigger locks should be mandatory when minors are in the house.  Or people that haven't had gun safety training.

One of my favourite episodes of Family Guy is the one where both Lois and Peter end up having sex with Bill Clinton. Cos he's just so charming, and [Lois] I mean, Peter, the man presided over the longest economic expansion in U.S. History and...he reduced the percentage of Americans on welfare to its lowest level in 33 years!

Look, I'm a firearm owner and I havea few but I'm not protecting the farkheads. I hope they do some time and use it to reflect on some life changes. Responsible gun owners know what last resort means and they are not drivin by fear and stupidiity. Some asshats think they live in the wild west or something. They are the ones that make me nervous and on the fence about the capacity for mainstream America to own firearms. Some people literally need their firearms taken away. But again, some dont.

Depends on the lawn really. You have to get through a lot of 40+ foot trees and a handful of boulders to get on my lawn. If something was able to pull that off I'd definitely be scared for my life, moreso if they survived it.

doglover: This is why you put rocks strategically at the edge of your property.  No truck on your lawn, no need to consider violence to remedy lawn truck situation.


I am a big fan of painted 4x4 concrete with reinforced cores instead of traditional wood posts.  They look like sturdy wood but are actually impromptu tank traps.
Though a well placed decorative boulder is always good.

dyhchong: Lady J: There was a fight outside my house last night. We heard a smash of breaking glass (thrown bottle, it turns out), and then a lot of shouting and scuffling. Lord J went outside and there was a dude with a baseball bat kicking off at the little scallies who hang around the basketball court and shot w33d. Big brother of head scally came 'steaming' up the road on his electric scooter and calmly tried to defuse the siuation. I was actually really impressed. Someone must have called the cops though cos a whole bunch showed up really quickly (donut shop obvs sold out).

No real harm done in the end, thankfully, except for some glass to sweep up.

Diego Dominguez: I don't understand this, FTFA:
"..on suspicion of attempted assault and unlawful use of a weapon"
how is this not attempted murder?
They shot at him with guns. Not their tiny peni or confetti.

Shooting your conefetti at someone without their consent is assault. They grazed his head with a bullet. Not confetti.

This is absurd.


Maybe they we're aiming for the tires. That is what their lawyers will claim.

Diego Dominguez: I don't understand this, FTFA:
"..on suspicion of attempted assault and unlawful use of a weapon"
how is this not attempted murder?
They shot at him with guns. Not their tiny peni or confetti.

Shooting your conefetti at someone without their consent is assault. They grazed his head with a bullet. Not confetti.

This is absurd.


The father seems to at least have a reasonable defense - he was trying to disable the vehicle, which at that point he could have considered a deadly weapon. 

The son was apparently trying to cause harm, but in neither case does it appear to be pre-meditated, which means that murder charges are out.  'Attempted manslaughter' isn't a crime, as manslaughter is not an intended consequence of one's actions, so that drops it down to attempted assault: they both showed a level of intent to cause significant bodily injury.

No, he doesn't.

Again, you're wrong.  Look up Second-degree murder
