  1. They live in a flat. I used to live in a flat in the city and we could hear everything. I could hear the guy above me urinate every morning. You don't have to be that loud to be heard by neighbours in a flat.
  2. You think recording people in their home is public spirited? Forget that Boris Johnson is a dirt bag and concentrate on the fact that two scumbags (who brag on Twitter about sticking their finger up at Boris) recorded a private discussion and released it to the media. Lower than a rat.
  3. I don't think I do. If you would like to explain why feel free
  4. So people who arrange publicity photos should not complain when a scumbag neighbour records a row and gives it to the press?
  5. I would argue that all of those cities are more famous world wide than Sheffield. Frankfurt is considerably more famous as it is a financial hub. Nice is also more famous being a huge tourist destination (possibly the biggestin France after Paris). It's geographical position is the reason for this. Palermo is debatable but is again a tourist area and has a larger historical significance than Sheffield. Bilbao has its football team. The things about Sheffield is that there isn't much here. When I have visitors from outside the city they are inevitably disappointed by the city. It has next to no architecture or buildings of interest (when compared to say Manchester and Liverpool). I like living here, but we aren't a particularly important city. Even during the war it wasn't really bombed becausbit wasn't really important.
  6. I disagree. I am a very experienced cyclist and I feel uncomfortable sharing pedestrian space with cyclists. Judging you based on your profile pic (the best way to judge people!), you are probably a fairly decent cyclist and one that is aware of the needs of pedestrians. A great number are not. They will ride at speed, no handed, on their phones or doing wheelies. The better riders tend to ride on the road. The Moor is a pedestrian area and not for bikes (as far as I am aware). However I am using the Moor to represent all pedestrian areas, could just as well be the pavement on eccy road.
  7. It isn't an either or situation as far as Ibak concerned. Uninsured drivers, as well as those driving without a licence should be severely dealt with in my opinion. Multiple thousand pound fine confiscated from house value or wages/benefits. Whilst the capacity for damage is fairly low, I meant more the financial side of things. Riding down the Moor on a bike makes pedestrians feel uncomfortable. A hefty fine would help fill the coffers of the police whilst making the area more pleasant for those who want to use the area.
  8. I agree with cyclists on the pavement being annoying and dangerous. I used to cycle frequently (perhaps 80 miles a week, mostly on roads) so I am fairly experienced. Anyone over the age of 14 should be on the roads, with an exception made for adults accompanying children under that age. SYP should start pulling over and fining people who ignore this, it will help with funding whilst getting the message across that pavement cycling by adults is not acceptable. With regards to mandatory insurance, I don't think it is feasible and not really necessary. The capacity for damage (and financial cost) is fairly low on a bike.
  9. I suppose you are right. Evidence should always come after personal opinion If it doesn't matter whether the offended people are in the minority, does that mean that Christians should stop practicing their beliefs because some people are offended by them? What about women voting? That will offend some people, how dare they chose to act in a way that may cause others offense? The thing with offense is that someone is going to be offended by pretty much everything we do. As individuals we are to make our decision regarding out freedom to act vs our potential to offend. We all draw a personal line somewhere. I do not find it acceptable for instance to worship a god that slaughtered children. I do find it acceptable to say a naughty word in a licenced establishment. Your line is different. My original comment, that most people find swearing in public acceptable has accurate. You are in the minority, which doesn't make you wrong by the way. But you are wrong when you say most people agree with you.
  10. Because offense is taken not given. We all have to live out lives how we see fit and decide the levels to which we are willing to offend. I find it offensive that Christians and Muslims praise such a murderous god. I find it offensive that people like the guy I quoted earlier think that women are some delicate flower that need protecting from naughty language. Should Christians stop praising their god because of me? Absolutely not. In terms of "good" use of the English language, that is awfully subjective. Many studies show that people who swear frequently have larger vocabularies; https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.sciencealert.com/people-who-swearing-cursing-rude-words-better-vocabulary-science/amp There are also studies that show people who swear are more honest. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.independent.co.uk/life-style/swear-wearing-honesty-lie-more-honest-facebook-psychology-cambride-university-maastricht-hong-kong-a7512601.html%3famp As evidenced by the study I posted last night, most people now think swearing is ok.
  11. He was odd because he believes females need protecting from naughty words (like they are innocent and weak) and because he straw manned me by saying swearing was necessary. Not because we have a different opinion on whether swearing in public is acceptable or not. I feel that most people think swearing in public, especially in a licenced establishment, is acceptable. I feel that because it happens all the time. Swearing is even acceptable in peak TV time. It wasn't so long ago that a four letter word on TV would be national news. Now it is a daily occurrence. I would laugh at you and tell you to go away if you asked me not to swear in a licenced establishment. It would be different if I was on a bus. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/swearing-front-kids-deemed-acceptable-13063324.amp 52 percent of parents think it is acceptable to swear in front of kids (not just in public, in a place serving alcohol, but just generally in front of kids) So my claim, that most people find swearing acceptable, has more merit than yours. I won't expect an apology, though one would be nice.
  12. So major incidents, but not goals? Define "daylight".
