The gay adoption thing, I guess I think a child should have both a mother and a father.


So you'd rather no parents over two dads/mums?

Starfruit. It's like an apple had a bit of 'ow's yer father with a grape and resulting stress from the shame gave birth to a deformity. Tasty deformity though.

I don't really understand this. The population of humans isn't really a cumulative concept when it comes to fertility treatment - if Ms Jones down the road has popped eight kids out of her fertile uterus, does that mean Mr and Mrs Smith, who have been trying to conceive a child for six years don't deserve the chance to have a longed-for child of their own, simply because there's 'too many humans' on their street already?



Yeah, I think if we're going to have policy in relation to population control it should be more towards encouraging people to have no more than 2 children, perhaps with financial incentives or something, or if it became completely necessary then *perhaps* a 2 child limit, depending on the situation. Helping a couple to have their first child however, is a positive thing IMO anyway.

I think adoption should be more encouraged.

Nope, I tell you what's really freaking me out. The big tree in the back garden obscuring us from part of the field has been cut, meaning people can see right into my room :|

If you click on the first non-italics/non-bracketed link on any wikipedia page and then on any successive pages, you eventually get to Philosophy. Tried it 3 times and each time I felt genuinely scared. :lol: Apparently it works for like 94% of pages as well.

I drove to work yesterday. After work I drove home, parked the car in a side street as I have to. Checked my mirror before opening the door, there was a car coming so I waited. Across the road to the front a man started crossing diagonally towards the car and I expected him to pass in front to the pavement. But he was taking some seriously long strides straight towards me and got right up to my door before turning to walk behind the car as I panicked and grabbed for the lock.

I'm sure the twat did that on purpose. It took me a moment just sitting there wondering what had happened before I could get out.

Getting really nervous about something I have to do on Saturday. Haven't felt like this probably since the first time I ever played live :lol:

:lol:

I did an open mic on my own about four weeks ago, nervous as hell. Performance was close enough. Did the same open mic two weeks later, no nerves. Too cocky, song was too ambitious, died a death.

Nerves are a wonderful thing.

I think being one and a half pints drunk is best. Takes the edge off if you need to, but you're still in control!

I always have four pints before a gig. Kinda sucks when you're headlining though, you really have to space them out :lol: Unfortunately, Saturday is like a sporting activity rather than anything musical, so I don't think beer would help much.

Big 30th birthday bash for my hospital tonight. Black tie. I've heard rumours that we'll all have our pictures taken etc; guest speakers etc. Shit.

My colleagues (all female) are still trying to work out what to wear :lol: and moaning that I'll be alright with just a tux.

Still don't know what to do with the attempts at growing a beard. My mates all reckon to leave the goatee and say it'll be fine (sides/neck is quite thin like a pubescent 14 year old but the goatee/moustace are of decent thickness, fnah fnah).

I like to think my mate, who some of you met at BOA this year, wouldn't encourage it if it would look daft but we're both blokes and there's that nagging doubt.
