When you start doing family trees, you find tons of this kind of stuff going back years. I don't know any family who hasn't got stories like this, somewhere.

When my great-grandfather was making his way back across Europe after IIWW ended he stopped off in France to father a couple of bastards, before finally returning to Liverpool to father some not-bastards. I think I've posted about this before, but whatever. This thread's leading me to have serious doubts about the old adage "distance makes the heart grow fonder", as it usually seems to wind up producing lots of extra-marital shagging instead.

French women really seemed to be up for it in those days. I saw a documentary once about that. A lot of them were easy to win over if you were a dashing Wehrmacht uniformlad. So you didn't even have to be on our side to
pull French birds get them in the sack.
However, this was not something that the French as a whole took kindly to. There were accounts that in some villages, those women were seized by angry mobs, their heads were shaved, and they were paraded around the village with a sign around their neck that read "I slept with a German pig".

>Mental health research indicates that major, unexpected shocks have the potential to cause much emotional upheaval.
Not entirely related, but one of my exes once found out while doing some ancestry research that one of her direct ancestors during Edwardian times was a murderer, and convicted and sentenced to death for killing several women after raping them. Nobody in her family talked much about him, and because he and his wife divorced after a few years, nobody in my ex's family actually knew much about what happened to him later in his life. My ex was really pretty shocked and it took her some time to come to grips with it.

I've seen interviews with British women who thought that the Second World War was great and they didn't want it to end because they were having so much sex.
I suppose the thought that the Luftwaffe could drop a bomb and kill you at any moment would be enough to loosen your inhibitions somewhat.

Great. So they were basically being slags on the home front while their men were risking their arses in the trenches of Normandy.

The Netherlands' leading supermarket chain has abandoned a request for staff to upload semi-naked photographs of themselves to an app so it could work out sizes for a new uniform.
Albert Heijn had called on staff at a branch in the eastern city of Nijmegen to upload photos of themselves in their underwear or tight-fitting sports gear.

The trope of a soldier's wife sleeping with other men while he's away fighting dates back centuries. In fact, I think there's even references to it in texts from antiquity or further back. Sex and violence. We're a pretty grim species, at times.

Cafe's naughty-sounding name shows up on bank statements - but wives are seeing the funny side
A cafe owner says its naughty-sounding name has led to an unexpected rise in business.
The Tea's Me Cafe in Lockwood has seen an increase in couples calling in on Saturdays and, according to its owner, it's all down to the cafe's name showing up on male customers' bank statements. A spokesman for the Albert Street cafe said 'banter levels' had gone through the roof.
"Our name comes up as Teas Me on debit cards, so men have had to bring in their partners to prove to them we are a cafe. We came up with the name after sitting down and having a think. We were going to go for 'Baps to the Future'. We've had a few people in who said their partner thought they had been on a dodgy website or something. The men have been bringing in their partners on a Saturday morning to see it's just a cafe. We've had a lot of good banter."
Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter. Banter.

Lads, I don't know quite what direction this thread has taken 1300 posts after discussing those shutters, but I've just had a potentially amazing idea.
Traffic lights, right? How often are you driving and you get stopped when the person already crossed? Or how often do you feel a twinge of guilt for pressing the button before realising you can just go now?
How much time do you think would be saved if the traffic button needed to be pressed twice - once to queue a request, and once to activate it? So if there's no one there to press the button a second time, when it's flashing or making a unique beep, then the lights won't change.
I'm not sure what to call it. Possibly 'retarded', but it could surely be a newsworthy idea.

>So if there's no one there to press the button a second time, when it's flashing or making a unique beep, then the lights won't change.
So you're saying that we should keep the signals indicating that you should cross now, including the beeping for blind people, but just don't stop the cars?

>So you're saying that we should keep the signals indicating that you should cross now, including the beeping for blind people, but just don't stop the cars?
Is that what I said? Fuck. I meant a different toned beep so blind people don't just walk in the road. The lights wouldn't change, neither traffic nor pedestrian, unless there's someone still waiting to cross after the initial press, since there's generally a delay.
|>>|| No. 20887
I get what he's saying, after the first press, at the time the lights would have changed instead a calming woman voice would say "Are you still here? Press again to confirm" and if it was pressed again the lights would change. It's a perfect system.
From the perspective of a motorist, though, watching the lights change as a direct reaction to some cunt stood there pressing the button would probably annoy me far more than them changing themselves while unoccupied by pedestrians.
As I type this though, I realise that I'm pretty sure many crossings already have pedestrian sensing cameras on them, so I'd be pretty fucking surprised if they didn't already simply not change if the crossing no longer has people stood at it.

Thanks for being my wordsmith mate.
>watching the lights change as a direct reaction to some cunt stood there pressing the button would probably annoy me far more than them changing themselves while unoccupied by pedestrians.
Fuck, really? I've not driven in 10 years so I don't really know, I assumed it'd be more annoying to have them arbitrarily stop you with nary a punter in sight.
>As I type this though, I realise that I'm pretty sure many crossings already have pedestrian sensing cameras on them, so I'd be pretty fucking surprised if they didn't already simply not change if the crossing no longer has people stood at it.
Good point, though presumably this isn't super widespread, but still somewhat prevalent. Do you know that they would prevent a change occurring if detecting no pedestrian at the lights, or is that a guess? Seems like something that could produce false positives depending on the method, do you know if that system is widespread?

>Do you know that they would prevent a change occurring if detecting no pedestrian at the lights, or is that a guess?
It's just a guess, possibly based on fuzzy memories of observing them, but I feel like I haven't been stuck waiting at an empty crossing in a good long while.
Couldn't really tell you an more, but I notice just about every crossing in my particular town has camera/sensor things pointed at the pedestrians.

I see years of gay conversion therapy ahead for this poor lad.
The scary thing is, from my experience of spending plenty of time stateside and knowing a few people in the Bible Belt, there are literally MILLIONS of people like that. This is not some sort of satire.

It's some artist circle jerking about how they value the current flavour of the week. It's clearly not a community project and the cunt probably got more of the attention they were seeking by having their mate steal it than they would have for the GCSE level art project.

I vaguely remember us doing human heads with wire and paper mache in art class in school, around year 10 or something. Absolutely dreadful. Mine sort of looked like Boy George on a bad acid trip.

A couple of highlights from the Hull Daily Mail.
>"There have been plastic bags with not just dog waste - it is human waste. It is too big for a dog. It's horrendous."
>A man who forced a parking ticket into a wardens' mouth and made him eat it after he was given a fine has been jailed.
>In a bizarre set of crimes that took place over two months, Alex Owers, 40, of Kingston Road in Willerby, also drove to a petrol station, licked a protective screen separating him from cashiers, downed a miniature bottle of wine and coughed in a police officer's face.
>On March 29, during the coronavirus lockdown, Owers made his way to a petrol station on Kingston Road in Willerby after he had been drinking. Miss Evans told the court that despite being told several times by staff members that he would not be served after pressing his face against a protective plastic screen, Owers continued to do so and even licked it.
>The prosecutor told the court: "He told them to 'f*** off' and that there were no signs not to touch, but they pointed them out. He started eating a sandwich and drank a bottle of miniature wine. When he was arrested he agreed to pay for those items."

You're right. McDonald's daytime menu is notoriously unpopular.

It's a rhetorical question and obviously is used to convey the fact that I personally strongly dislike it, but I suspect you knew that already.

I've quite enjoyed reinterpreting the McDonalds breafast menu myself, with proper muffins, nice cheese and an egg that hasn't spent 30 minutes baking in a holding tray.
