Sunday session at eyemouth Given that the conditions were really tame compared to the last clip I posted, we suffered a snapped paddle, a broken skeg (tail fin) and Kev tore pretty much all his fingers open when he surfed over a rock upside down.

Last time I go out in small conditions - shit is fucking dangerous! 8 foot of swell coming in this weekend. Nice and safe

I fucking love christmas! There I said it. I love the two weeks off work and the giving/getting presents to/from people and the huge fucking banquet and the gallons of booze and the mountains of reefer and Kirsty MacColl and the Pogues.

I don't care who started it. Some prehistoric dickhead getting caught by the filth and literally banged up cos living gods can't crime worth a fuck or a bunch of other prehistoric wankers sacrificing virgins to the spirit of the harvest. Seriously - couldn't give a fuck and will happily reduce to a quivering vegetable anyone who can (another thing to love about christmas)

Christmas is Saturday Night2 and I'll puke neat Tequilla in the face of anyone who refuses to party.  :argh!:

This holiday you speak of is completely foreign to me. In the U.S. we have this frenzied, month-long consumer blood sport typically starting on the last Friday in November and running right up until the last possible second on December 24th. Not a whole lot of two weeks off work around these parts, and even if there were it would be spent in an insurmountable cross-town commute through suddenly feral packs of disposable battery and gift-card hoarders wearing santa caps and bleeding peppermint flavored jolly from their tear ducts. The only party is in the media room where they get to report on shoppers getting trampled and do a weekly round-up of the banned nativity scene inspired butt-hurt. If you're lucky enough here to get to have a nice meal and spend time with family and friends, that merely means that there's some upside to the Ho-Ho-Hell. But even that is by no means a given, because we still need employees out there cleaning up the small asteroid worth of garbage that is generated, scrubbing the blood and regret from the retail shelves in preparation for the smaller after Christmas aftershock, and manning the suicide hotlines.

This.

If you love Christmas, you haven't tried American Christmas.

I just hide in my house for that last week, until the worst of it is over.

LOL, yeah, once again I failed to account for the murrica-factor. We get a month of annoying radio jingles and tv full of "buy this plastic crap or your kids'll hate you" propaganda (if you're still into that old 20th century watching teevee with ads thing) but on the whole, in scotland, it's fucktons of booze and food and beating the shit out of tourists just coz. To be honest it could be any other scottish holiday, or weekend, or weekday but with loads of trippy lights in the shape of reindeer everywhere.

Best advice I have:

Set your sights on someone you want to be. Not what you look like, you can't be the same person you are and look different because it's who you are and how you live that determines your physical condition more than anything else. Maybe you want to be a football player or a mountaineer or a skateboarder or a cyclist or whatever. The mind and body are interlinked in a lot of respects. You can change one without changing the other but it's not generally sustainable.

Bad news - you want to be a thin, athletic person with killer abs who lounges about the sofa all day watching teevee and eating cheetos? Not going to happen.

Hitting the gym, changing your eating habits, playing ingress... these are all good things and will help short term. All I'm saying is that if you don't have a long term goal, like "I want to spend my life hiking around the wilderness or surfing or something, rather than doing whatever the fuck it was that got me into this predicament in the first place", you're likely to experience short term results.

I spent all week on a costume for the contest at the pub down the street and they turned me away at the door because my ID is expired. 31 this week. Fuck all the things.

What am I going to do with a prosthetic tentacleface now?

I'm disappointed you are even able to express that as a question  :argh!:

This one's sneaking by nicely:

Quote
There are rising concerns in Europe over negotiations to liberalise trade with the United States.

The project, the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or TTIP, aims to remove a wide range of barriers to bilateral commerce.

Quote
In the EU, campaigners say that consumers could be faced with more genetically modified food, hormone treated beef and chicken meat that has been rinsed with chlorine.

Another major concern is the provisions under discussion to enable foreign investors - for example American firms investing in the EU - to sue a host government in some circumstances if they are hit by a change in policy.

The bold is nicely worded. A "hit" from a change in policy could be literally anything. From new minimum wage requirements to regulation changes to taxation to roadworks near the office to whatever. Governments change policies more often that I can count. Any time a new body occupies a post there's policy changes.

Take Education in the UK for example. A large sector that suffers policy changes literally annually if not more frequently. Now consider the potential range of suppliers to the sector. It's extensive. Now consider how many lawsuits you could be looking at from even basic changes. Menu change? Caters sue. Textbook change? Publishers sue. Uniform change? Suppliers sue. Basically everyone will sue everyone sooner or later and they won't have to demonstrate a lot to be able to win.

Yet I'll bet big money on all political parties being for this. I wonder why?

Answer your own questions much? Best democracy money can buy.  :lulz:

I stand here disconnected
and the visions fall like rain
there's a quiet desperation
flicker knives on feet of shame

You twist my head rejected
whisper solitude insane
I join the revolution
and I ride the crazy train

And the devils bring tomorrow
as the gods steal yesterday
This is not the world we dreamed of
It's the reason humans pray

Your touch ignites my terror
self loathing rears it's head
Fragile silken barbs of will
twist and tear the words you said

See the fool who stands before you
spend your pity on his lies
Drifting consequence of knowledge
as we spit our last goodbyes

And the devils give us feelings
as the gods build fires of hate
We are slaves to our emotions
this is every human's fate
