>Group hug perhaps?


W.W.S. responded...No way. Its Friday afternoon. The weather has been bad.
I want to see some hate.

I have just finished reading that thread and perhaps WWS now that your request has been granted dont you wish you should have asked for a new drill or a trip to Thailand instead perhaps?? He,he.
Yes I am bored and yes I should be doing some constructive work but I am the boss so I dont care. ( At least my wife said I could be the boss today)

I for one was disappointed to see that thread locked. There was some terrific invective coming through. Think of the separation of the internet as a help rather than hinderance. It has allowed everyone involved to show their true colours, and the air is now truly clear.

Ha ha!

I wandered off last friday in a foul mood. I should of pleaded for good weather as my wish was answered. Come monday I read a bad M*A*S*H episode and at least started the week with a giggle.

Anyway I experienced some people way more dissatisfied than me, got good weather, went to an awesome crag last weekened and didn't have to go to bloody thailand. (you can get the runs in redfern too you know)

There is no such thing as a "bad" MASH episode.

I know.
I always run when I'm in Redfern. It's the only way to get away from the angry mobs.

That thread lasted a week so the bitch-slapping was lightweight compared to some threads I have seen run off the rails in the past within hours rather than days.
I doubt the air is clear, as attitudes don't change that quickly!

>separation of the internet
Six degrees of separation?
From animals??

NO flaming on this thread I'm so sick of angry people. I just started this thread to stir up WWS because he's so good at stirring himself and can always see the funny side of things. I thought ....... uummmm maybe I didn't think????

Did you leave it behind on the North Wall or the South? Man the Offwidths must be big at Buffalo.

ohmygod!!!

I kept seeing that thread pop up at the top, but thought it would be too boring to read. That was like watching a car crash. The things that people say!

At least you cant swing mallets over an internet connection, Though Im sure there are a lot of people that wish they could now

Cool! That is my idea of reasonable workplace bargaining. Hope the staff don't get done

I wish I had of taken that style of response when I was working as a mechanic.
I asked the boss for a small pay rise for him to reply that he was a bit tight for money and couldn't really afford it.
2 weeks later he bought an 80 series toyota landcruiser so he could take his son and friends to private school sport on Saturdays. ( the statesman must have been a bit small) 3 months later he then took his family to Europe on holidays for 3 weeks.
I could have quite happily pushed that Landcruiser off a cliff somewhere.
