    I just popped into town to get my hair cut and buy some new trainers. Came out of the barbers and spotted my wife chatting with one of her friends - someone I have met, but don't know very well at all, I'd walk past her in the street without recognising her if she hadn't been stood with my wife. As I said 'hello' to my wife, my wife ran her hands through my hair and took the mickey about my hair being short. Fine, no drama with that. Her friend then ran *her* hands through my hair. Which was *not* fine.

    Yes I know I'm a bit weird, but I *hate* people touching me. I just find it massively over familiar. I've had to stop people doing it before (one of the ladies at work has a habit of touching people on the arm when she's talking to them). It strikes me as being exceptionally rude. And frankly if I ran my hands through a (relatively unknown) ladies' hair I'd expect to be called some kind of creep. Who the fuck thinks it's acceptable to touch people's hair in the street?

    The fucking fuck I've got a tax liability. I've paid all of my payroll taxes, estimated income taxes, property taxes, business property taxes, sales taxes, and final annual income taxes in advance every fucking year since I've been open. That would be 19fucking93. Before that all of my personal taxes were paid well before deadlines dating back to 197fucking7. I know the third quarter taxes were paid as my cheques have all cleared the bank. Fucking arseholes.

    I can probably straighten this out with a phone call, but this shit is annoying.
    Make sure it's real, scammers are getting better.

    It's when they start with the Mr Sheen and a polishing cloth that bugs me the most.


    I also dislike being touched, I've upset many an in-law and acquaintance by refusing. Their right to hug me trumps my right to left untouched. I'll shake hands if I must.

    It probably is real. It came in response to submitting the yearly certificate forms for my x-ray equipment. They won't renew as the state shows I've got some outstanding tax liability. It's probably down to some dickhead in an office somewhere not knowing his dick from his nose and fucking up my paperwork.

    Not really BMP but wanted to share and this seemed like a suitable outlet.

    Trying to have a discussion with a brain washed vegan.

    Vegan- When you see a goat, does it make you feel hungry.

    Jody- No, when you see w wheat field, do you feel hungry.

    Vegan- Don't be silly, that's not the same thing.

    Jody- How come you guys are happy killing plants, but not animals.

    Vegan- Plants don't feel pain.

    Jody- You don't KNOW that

    Vegan- a calf would live for 20 years, but they get killed after 4

    Jody- Wheat gets harvested after about 6 months. Is that 'cutting it down in it's prime', ending it's life before nature decides it's time for it to die?

    Vegan- We feel the way we do and we say what we say, because we have science and studies to back it up

    Jody- Do meat eaters not have any science or studies

    Vegan- Yeah, but all their studies are biased and untrue, they are paid for by EG the meat marketing board

    Jody- How do you know 'your' studies are true.

    Vegan- I know they are, Vegans don't lie, vegans tell the truth.

    Jody- Are you seriously trying to tell me that no vegan has ever lied or been wrong, ever. Not one vegan on the whole planet ? Who pays for 'your' studies

    Vegan- I don't know, I could look it up

    Jody- Ohh OK its just that 45 seconds ago you said meat eaters studies where all false because of who paid for them. You also said you 'know' you can trust vegan studies but you don't know who paid for your studies. If your using 'who paid for it' as an argument against one side, you really need to know who paid for the other sides studies.

    Vegan- Fruit and veg is much better for the environment.

    Jody- Is it though, is a mango shipped from India or sweet potato shipped from India, is that actually better for the environment than a lamb that grows in the field next door. I think if you took the time to look at the whole process, you'll find your 'study' is biased and missing out essential information

    Vegan- No, no , no it's not. All the Vegan studies are 100% true.

    Jody- But the meat eaters studies can't be trusted?

    Vegan- Yep, that's right.

    Jody- OK buddy, no worries


    Footnote. I have no issue what so ever with people choosing to be vegan or veggie or whatever the hell they like. But like religion I don't like it when 'believers' try to convince you that you are wrong when they don't have most the information. It was the vegan that started the conversation!

    That would annoy me too, and I have been Vegetarian (well, Piscatarian) for 35 years.
    Trees (f'rinstance) may be able to feel "pain", they certainly communicate according to recent studies.
    In fact, up here you can see them shivering when I start the new 60cc Husky....

    Don't they always?

    It's like the old joke.

    How do you spot a Vegan at a party?

    Don't worry, they'll let you know.

    Here's a thought. Could a vegan biker be allowed to wear leather protective riding gear?

    snipped for brevity!
    I believe in evolution. I've evolved as an omnivore. The evidence is in my dentition and my GI tract. I have biology on my side.

    Much shorter argument.

    There's always textile gear. However, if on the track I'd want leathers.

    Most wouldn't. I've talked to a couple who want to do trackdays but won't wear leather, so they don't. They wear textiles on the road.



    But then, there are always some who extol the virtues of their beliefs and bend all ears near them - only to do something different when it suits them!!

    Like veggies who demand bacon for breakfast on holiday

    Well, like an awful lot of humans really
