>Diane Abbott has accused BBC Question Time of legitimising racist abuse after claims that the shadow home secretary was singled out before and during Thursday night’s episode of the political discussion programme.

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/jan/18/diane-abbott-accuses-bbc-question-time-of-legitimising-dolphin rape

Does Diane Abbott receive a lot of flak because she's black or because she's a pompous and incompetent hypocrite?

Diane Abbott has genuinely challenged my lefty-liberal prejudices. I'd honestly never seen someone play the race card before. I thought it was one of those Daily Mail myths, like asylum seekers getting free cars or Birmingham adopting Sharia law. She clearly gets a lot of racist abuse online, but she has conflated "people being racist against me" and "people pointing out that I'm a fucking idiot" to an extraordinary degree.

Boy who cried wolf, innit. If you constantly accuse people of being racist when they're merely pointing out you're fucking clueless then people are less likely to believe you when people attack you because they're actually being racist.

Many of the lads I work out with are beasts and look great, but have not spent a single second working on their flexibility. I have no idea how they even shower properly, and you see some lads who can't even stand up straight because they've over-worked either their shoulders or back, and so are sort of permanently curled in on themselves. Knowledge on what to do and how to build muscle seems better than ever now, but some lads are still wandering around with serious issues because they've never bothered to listen or think about what they're doing.

Well, I'm no the OP. I actually hate when people post a video without any comment, even on /iq/ it's annoying. People at the extreme end of powerlifting are, I agree, pretty daft. But they've settled on a passion in life and are happy to pursue it with the sort of dedication i struggle to muster so I have some respect for them.

Major injuries are somewhat rare, but the nature of moving around several hundred kilograms of muscle mean they're pretty dramatic when they happen. I think most of us weightlifters view these people at the extreme end of powerlifting like ordinary mountaineering folk view free-climbers. It's a devotion with such a small margin of error that you have to be a few sandwiches short of a picnic to even consider trying what you do. But it's a more exciting world to have them around.

>like ordinary mountaineering folk view free-climbers.

Rock climbing and mountaineering are very different beasts I realise from the outside they look like the same cultures, I assure you they are not. Your stereotypical free climber a 20 something bum with lots of spare time to fuck up their hands at the boldering wall, where as your stereotypical mountaineer looks middle aged and has a professional qualification.

High end Mountaineering is all about the will to just carry on going and money, you could climb Everest tomorrow if you have the will to just walk nonstop for over 24 hours, you don't mind the cold and being constantly short of breath and getting up half an hour before you went to bed and the tens of thousands for a permit. It is a lot of the time not 'exciting' just many many hours walking. Your adrenaline junkie rock climber sort would hate it, I mean it is basically rambling. And Rock climbing is just a means to an end with a mountaineer under a large range of other skills.

I think what drives a stalker is typically their belief that they could have, or already do have, a personal or intimate relationship with the person they're stalking, so them actively deciding to pretend to be a pap would be like them admitting that the celeb isn't actually going to be their girlfriend.

Having said that I'm sure I read of some stalker pretending to be the celeb victims maid or housekeeper or whatever to get inside the house, so maybe more stalkers should be considering devious plans.

>The actor states in a motion obtained by DailyMail.com that the teenager 'claimed he was a 23-year-old student studying business at Wake Forest University' after he 'sought out a friend for the specific purpose of introducing him to [Spacey].'

>It goes on to state that the teen 'welcomed drinks from [Spacey], let [Spacey] put his arm around him near the piano while they did sing-a-longs and even left the bar to smoke with [Spacey].' That behavior, combined with the fact that the teen gave Spacey his number, suggests 'mutual and consensual flirting' states the motion.

>At no point does Spacey deny groping the young man.

>The motion states that once Spacey began to grope his accuser the teen 'did not object to the alleged touching, he did not ask [Spacey] to stop and he did not remove himself from the situation.' In the initial filing the accuser said that this was because he froze, and suggested his lack of an erection as proof he was not enjoying the sex act.


Is an erection proof one way or another whether an assault occurred?

RYANAIR own a lot of them - you're quite right on that point. They have recently started to lease/rent them though. Their model is slightly different in that they buy hundreds of exactly the same plane type at a big discount and then kit out their maintenance and hangars to support only that type (Boeing 737/Airbus A320). Most airlines don't do this and the lease/rent market is growing rapidly - over 60% of the planes run by airlines are leased/rented.

Shipping is a different market - hardly anyone owns their own ships. The Baltic Dry Index is really the leading indicator of shipping costs and is a fascinating place to start a late-night wikiwalk. Everyone rents.

I don't doubt that Seaborne Freight are utter cunts, given their piss-poor attempt at putting together a basic website and the background of the principals and company; but lets crucify them on that, or the government handing them the contract - not on basic semantics of the market they work in and the finance models of the assets they use. It's actually a good thing that they don't own any ships, when you think about it.

No, you misunderstand. A tenant might not own their home, but they do undoubtedly have a home. Seaborne does not own any ships. They do not control any ships. They do not have any ships on lease. They do not have rights to any ships. They do not have options on any ships. They do not have access to any ships. They do not possess anything remotely resembling the capability to move anything across water.
