BB's hobby horses, part 855471547 - 'bystander' CPR during COVID

I'll bear that one in mind.

Note to self... Move nearer to an airport

Survival rate at an airport surely improved right now, less crowded?

RIP the police office shot in Croydon

Since the death of a special branch officer many years ago ( https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_of_Stephen_Oake) I had thought standard procedure on detention was to cuff an individual until such time as they've been searched.

Await full details but it seems to be procedural failure.

Is America heading toward civil war?
at 10:20 25 Sep 2020

Make America Great Britain again.

The white supremacist types can relocate here and join the Brexiteers in a fun packed country of seething hatred, and we can all relocate to the place of our choice there.

Where would ITFC be relocated?

Thinking about it not such a good idea... San Andreas fault, forest fires, tornadoes, hurricanes, colder winters

Hazmat suits!!



https://alterthecourse.com/thwart-ebola-with-designer-hazmat-suits/#sthash.vnbko

From F&F at Tesco thru to Burberry, Acquascutum to Football Club branded.... Sell them at £150 a time and insist on them being worn in public and there's a double boost... Everyone can go out a help the economy, and insisting on "Buy British" there's another boost to the economy ( both here and? A.n.other Asian country that produces them)

At large crowd events and public transport have disinfectant sprays to wash the exterior regularly.

Ah what about eating and drinking... Everything has to be in packets like astronauts in space and sucked they a special straw. If Tim Martin is switched into this imagine Kronenbourg and Big Breakfast sucked thru a straw. Hmmmm delicious!

Naaridge version designed to hide how ugly they are

Another bittersweet racism story
at 08:48 25 Sep 2020

I used to live in Whitefield but worked Anger Hey and Gorton principally, but also radiated out from there across Levenshulme, Beswick etc.

Seem to recall Harphurey being the limit of my journeys in that direction, which boasted Bernard's club within its boundaries, so no surprise with attitudes really.

Whilst I'd specify AC/DC as one of my favourite groups and Back in Black is a fine album...

Went for Dare - Human League
As it's one of my favourite albums, whereas BiB not even my fav AC/DC album.

Four hit singles on Dare? Sound of the Crowd, Love Action, Open Your Heart and Don't You Want Me.

Would rather be able to nominate 5, but even that would be tough, and I have to say The Cult's Love should be there (my first CD) as should Kings of the Wild Frontier!!

at 08:33 25 Sep 2020

Moston is not an area I'm familiar with, so will have to take your word for it that racism is rife.

Would only add that in the big cities there are rivalries between food trucks that sometimes spill over, particularly where OCGs are involved. For reference purposes see Scotland's "Ice Cream wars", there was also documentary on TV a few years ago about Burger Vans and the fact that many seemed to catch fire or get robbed more than others.

A thread for people who don't think racism a big problem in the UK
at 10:19 24 Sep 2020

Wow, surely presence of the usher should block off these molestations?

Given the nature of a court surely some sort of system of i.d. card should be in place? I recently attended an event at New Scotland Yard where my wife, the other visitors and I were issued with visitor passed that were distinct from the staff passes.
In this case all court officials; staff, prosecution and defence should receive one i.d. and visitors another. With i.d. standardised across courts as the barrister probably visits more than one court daily.

Isn't Quaker a derogatory term? A phrase used as the preachers from Religious Society of Friends used to quake whilst delivering their sermon?

Hmm more than one reason, but still potentially a derogatory term

Given Herbie Hancock's "Rock it" had to have a video using robots with the man himself appearing via back ground TV screen



Yet Uncle Ben's is one of the best known brands / logos worldwide.

Also in this country it is not unknown for any old person to be referred to as granddad or grandma whether or not actually related to the person...

Surely the brand is a positive image making progress?

Yes read the article, and partly playing to the Pendejo name.

But sweeping them aside perpetuates the miss-use for slang of what is a warm familial term.

The comparison against Colonel Sandaers was partially 'cos he looks like Rolf Harris, and also because he looks like something from the Confederate States i.e. Slave owners.

Dr Oetker was a bit of fun.... Foot rub, plasters or medicine fine... But cake mix!

Aunt Jemima


Uncle Ben


Indicating something warm and making you feel part of the family

Or the militaristic sounding twin brother of the convicted Rolf Harris


Apparently the two being promoted by black faces are racist but the southern gentleman isn't.
