P.C. help required!

About to send an email, I called up my list of contacts, and I was annoyed to see, tacked onto the end of my list ofchosen ones, unasked for things like Sexy Chicks, Red Hot Girls, that sort of thing. I didn't ask for these, and don't have the slightest idea how they got there. (Just how secure is t...

Re: Dick Barton programme

Well, I listened to the Radio 4 programme, and it was a bit disappointing. Half an hour was too short, really. I'd have liked to hear more about the characters of Dick, Jock and Snowy; about the nature of the villains they confronted; and the plots of the series. ----------------------------- ralph:...

Dick Barton programme

Do you remember "Dick Barton, Special Agent," and Dick's two buddies, Jock and Snowy? Did you rush indoors at the first few notes of "The Devil's Gallop"?
There's a half hour programme tomorrow (Thursday 15th July) on BBC Radio 4 looking back at the series.
I'll catch it if I can.

Re: 9/11 slap in the face...

It's obvious what happened.
Lee Harvey Oswald and the FBI/Mafia/Cuban exiles/KGB blew the towers up under the direction of the leaders of lost Atlantis.

The internet is a great research and information tool, but that's all.
All this "social networking" leaves me cold.

Re: The Falklands

(1) If the Argentinians had won last time, how long before the Islanders were "disappeared"?
(2) The islanders wish to remain British. If the right to self-determination entails the right to separate from Britain, then it must entail the right to stay with Britain.

Re: Bluegrass

Steve Martin was on one those breakfast TV programmes some while back, talking about the banjo, and giving a little demonstration.

Re bluegrass generally, I like Flatt and Scruggs and the Blue Sky Boys.

What are you worried about? Anjem Choudary has special police patrols to look after, doesn't he, so everything is all right.

Re: See if you can understand this.

Why did the old term "racialist" become replaced with "racist"?

Is it because "racist" has fewer syllables, and is therefore more stacatto and easier for a crowd to chant? ("RAY-SIST!" "RAY-CIST!")
