But seriously - I believe a universal student allowance is a bad thing. Do you have a universal student allowance in the UK? We don't here, and the amount of 'student representatives' who call for it when it's absolutely not the best thing they could call for (more funding for universities and higher student allowance thresholds, sure, but not a universal student allowance).



Thats a good one pigeon, in scotland every student has their fees paid for them... rich folk dont need there fees paid - give the money to the poor folk who cant afford to go to uni without killing themselves working all hours!



And while we're at it, lets make rich pensioners pay for their prescriptions.  2 tier systems-Fun for all the classes!

It's a very simple system: Either everyone should have it or no-one should.


Cant say I agree with that.  Yes to a certain extent there should a minimum that everyone is entitled to, but theres nothing wrong with a two-tier system if it narrows the wealth gap.

And no, I dont think rich pensioners should have their prescriptions paid for them... but then that may be my unpopular opinion



It levels the playing field in terms of quality of education too; hypothetically, if there was a wealth threshold on fees, rich folks could afford to pack off their kids to a privately funded university which may charge higher rates.  That could lead to a brain drain from the other universities when top lecturers see they could be earning more.  Having tuition paid for eliminates that option, as people will think "why pay when the government does"?

And the pensioners thing is in retrospect a bad example.  But kudos for sticking to your guns.

Gay pride parades make gay people in general look like perverts and that they're obsessed with sex.

I'm not gay and I'm not homophobic, in case anyone is wondering.



You kind of are homophobic if that's what you think. Also, explain how it makes them look like 'perverts'?


By calling it a "gay pride parade", it gives the uninformed (and potential homophobics) the impression that all gays are into kinky sex, and always wear black leather and those weird belt things, and have sex all the time with no time for anything else, and go around the streets fucking and sucking anyone and everyone. This is clearly not the case, but this is the message these kinds of exhibitions convey.

If only it wasn't called "gay pride", then it could just be an outlet for people of whichever sexual preference who have an interest in all things kinky and perverted. "We're kinky and we're proud."

Is there a Sodomy Pride parade?

#

You've never actually seen a gay pride parade have you? its nothing like you described, there was on in my town during the summer and it went right through the street that my flat overlooks, it looked like great fun and a few of my friends marched in it.

Heres a crazy idea, not every gay person is a cock obsessed screaming queen, there are plenty of gay people who are happy to have a normal relationship with someone else and dont spend all their time cuddling up with big guys named Ivan in club toilets at the weekend

I really wish you'd stay around this thread because your views on movies and video games are mental enough to make me chuckle (crash bandicoot is the best game character ever? fuck right off!) so christ knows what gems of opinions you'll unleash in here

On the subject of gay, it annoys me that most gay comedians (Graham Norton, Alan Carr etc) seem to base their entire act on just how gay they are, straight comedians have plenty more material than about how they love women but Norton and Carr need to ram it down our throats (oooooh matron!) about just how screaming they can be, they can be both very funny but the cheeky self deprecating humour about being gay can weaken their acts not strenghten it, not a problem to work it into the act a bit but it gets tiresome with every sentence being a double entrendre or dig at their own sexuality

It's a comic tradition though, stemming from the fact that in the days when you couldn't say openly you were gay, you acted camply and hinted at it because it made it more palatable, alot of comedians did it and it was successful. So they are just followers of that comic tradition.

True, its ironic that a lot of comedians or comic actors from say the 70s like the carry on crew or Mr Humphries from Are you being served? (forget the actors name) were more "acceptable" as they were the non threatening "oooh matron!" campy gay even though the audience at the time was probably a lot less accepting of actual gay culture

And on the subject of comedians, I've never found any female comedians (comediennes?) that funny, can be good comic actors but the standup routines are nearly all the same material , its hard to name one female comedian whose routine doesnt consist of jokes about periods,babies,how useless their current/ex husband is or just how crap men in general are

I half agree - sprouts do indeed rock, but there are better vegetables. Like the parsnip.

Parsnips are grown from the devil's anus, which is why they taste so fucking horrible. Sprouts rule.

Sprouts and parsnips are blood brothers. They deserve to share equal space on the festive plate. Parsnips have to roasted in the same tray as the bird you're cooking though, along with the roast potatoes.

Apart from Frank Skinner and David Baddiel.

I don't find Sarah Silverman's stand up funny, but I recently watched 'I'm fucking Matt Damon'
on youtube and it's hilarious! And really catchy - couldn't get it out of my head for days.

To be honest I don't think there are many really funny stand-ups around at the moment - it seems to be in a bit of a lull as a genre. We need some fresh blood on the scene.
