    Does GB need nuclear weapons?

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b07knlf4www.bbc.com/news/uk-36822460 I don't think so but then I'm a unilateralist. Even if I wasn't,I'd still think they were a waste of money. Over to you.

    456 British soldiers killed in action for what exactly ! The Taliban now control 65% of the province,whilst Afghan commanders flog their weapons leaving their troops high and dry,drug cartels controlled by the Taliban all fight over the £2 billion pound a year opium industry,the generals now...

    Being 65 is cool!

    I was sent this today by another oldie mate from the Colonies. I thought it worth sharing. I am over 65 and the Armed Forces thinks I'm too old to track down terrorists. You can't be older than 42 to join the military. They've got the whole thing ***-backwards. Instead of sending 18-year olds...

    Institutional racism and militarialistic policing taking place in the good old USA. That's some high-grade weaponry. http://www.thewire.com/national/2014/08/the-pentagon-gave-the-ferguson-police-department-military-grade-weapons/376033/

    Places of local interest

    I visited the Bay Museum at Thorney Bay, Canvey. I wasn't quite sure what expect but the places is stuffed with WWI and WWII memorabelia and well worth a visit if you are into that sort of thing. I suspect it is probably one of the largest collections of assault weapons on the island. The...

    Darwin Awards 2012 Eighth Place In Detroit, a 41-year-old man got stuck and drowned in two feet of water after squeezing head first through an 18-inch-wide sewer grate to retrieve his car keys. Seventh Place A 49-year-old San Francisco stockbroker, who "totally zoned when he ran"...

    How our Parents/Grandparents coped with the War.

    Here we are it’s DoDtS’s summer saga. Totally non football related, but my attempt to understand how and what our forebears had to endure through the war in a series of extracts from the Southend Standards of the times. Not everybody’s cup of tea but if your not interested then don’t read it...

    SCHOOL -- 1970 vs. 2010 Scenario: Johnny and Mark get into a fistfight after school. 1970 - Crowd gathers. Johnny wins. Johnny and Mark shake hands and end up best mates for life. 2010 - Police called, arrests Johnny and Mark.. Charge them with assault, both expelled even though Mark...

    Plodding Snore-fest Is No Reason For Complacency

    Algeria 0-1 Slovenia ENGLAND SHOULDN’T TAKE THESE TWO TEAMS FOR GRANTED An awful game, bereft of class and style, but if England fans think that they can relax, they should think again. There was just enough in this strangely compelling display of mutual ineptitude to concern Fabio...
  10. Why I Own A Green And Gold Scarf...

    I’m not a Manchester United fan. When Freddy Eastwood dispatched a venomous 25-yard free kick past Tomasz Kuszczack in the Carling Cup, I was as ecstatic as every other Southend supporter crammed into Roots Hall. I do, however, own a green and gold scarf. Supporters are funny groups of people...

    Only a man would attempt this!

    Pocket Tazer Stun Gun, a great gift for the wife... A guy who purchased his lovely wife a pocket Tazer for their anniversary submitted this to a forum: Last weekend I saw something at Larry's Pistol & Pawn Shop that sparked my interest... The occasion was our 15th anniversary and I was...
  12. The Man from Uefa. He say Okay.

    Strikers around the world rejoice! You can indeed feign a collision with a goalkeeper, be awarded a penalty, and even escape punishment when replays show you for the cheat you are. UEFA bowed to Arsenal's appeal and today retracted Eduardo's two-game ban levied at him in the wake of his antics...

    Question County Fare

    Anyone go to the "Robin Hood" County Show that was at Garons? I did, don't quite see where the link to Robin Hood was apart from a couple of people dressed up in 13th century attire and scaring kids with big sticks, weapons, not part of their anatomy, eh Tarquin. Saw some Feret racing which was...

    How to keep the Leicester fans at bay.

    Following on the from events of last Saturday and the repeated inability of the Leicester fans to behave themselves I really feel its time the club started taking our safety first. I really feel the club should now draw up some inspiration from the Stallone Movie classic "Escape to Victory". I...

    Tens of thousands of police officers across England and Wales are to be allowed to use high-voltage Taser stun guns. Funding will be provided for police chiefs to buy an extra 10,000 of the weapons (at a cost of £8M) which are designed to temporarily disable a suspect after a year-long...

    The 'Stan

    First of all, I'm writing this from my perspective of the last six months, I'm no hero, but plenty of my collegues are. Hopefully no one will think I'm writing this is order to show off, or to earn rep. Indeed, please don't rep me for this at all. I realise I'm probably not the only serviceman...

    If The World Was A Village Of A 1000 People

    If we could reduce the world’s population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all existing human ratios remaining the same, the demographics would look something like this: The village would have 60 Asians, 14 Africans, 12 Europeans, 8 Latin Americans, 5 from the USA and Canada...
