Wow, I've never seen Judy Babes so placid, do you think she's a Pistol's fan? maybe she was a punk in her youth... wooh! there's a thought!

But isn't that English butter?

Can one insult a concept?

As ever, just a thought that leaked out loud.

Aesthetics is not a concept but an understanding of life and being, part of your way of life.

Umm ok, It's British butter, my mistake. I've tasted it, it tastes pretty good.
I've tasted Irish butter and that tastes pretty good also.

Lydon was born to Irish immigrants btw, so is he even a valid spokesman for
British butter?

Hope I don't make that mistake when I move to England and ask for Irish Country Life butter, wouldn't want to get spit on my face, I won't mention my Irish ancestors either.

I think WeeJeem was just being funny and don't worry about your Irish ancesters, everyone has some .

Remember, if you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough

Inappropriate, and insulting comes to mind rather than funny.

I am talking about young people (I didn't mean "kids", as in teenagers) who spend all day hanging out on the streets drinking and taking drugs. I think that if they were happy, fulfilled people with a sense of self-worth, they wouldn't be there. A person from a happy, loving home doesn't behave like that. And by happy and loving home I don't mean wealthy and "respectable".

Best,

Mrs. T
Ah, it was the word 'kids' that threw me. I kind of agree, but also wouldn't want to question someone else's lifestyle too much. I don't necessarily think it's very much more fulfilling sitting in an office and saving your drinking for the weekend.

Yes, sorry about that, kids wasn't the best choice of words.

I find what you just said interesting, about not questioning someone else's lifestyle.

Do you mean questioning as in judging? if you do, then I'd agree with you, walk a mile in another man's shoes, and all that, but question? I like to question things, this kind of behaviour is marginal and I'm curious to know how people end up living like that.

Re: Dear Swiss "Punk"...

Hahaha, you must be joking. Seriously, I can assure you that many of those young people will grow up to be very happy, very fulfilled people and I can also assure you that many, many of them come from happy and loving and above all _tolerant_ and _respectful_ families.

Hi Tilia, that's quite an affirmation, you sound like you have personal experience with this, I'd like to hear more, can you elaborate?

I haven't seen that remake.

All about the bourgeois inability to understand someone who would reject its values, including that of gratitude.

In some ways it would be more puzzling if everyone conformed.
