Shoot The ****

(That'll teach it).

According to Urban Dictionary, Shoot The **** is a phrase which means...

"To chat idly about things that neither person involved in the conversation will be likely to remember."

Sounds like a good topic of discussion for the Internet for me!

To start things off: sentences that run off for so long that they stop making sense, like the above sentence I used before, and also this one now that I stop to think about it for a cotton picking minute (what was I talking about again?)

Edit: The LucasForums Police Force have slammed down on my rude word -- but we all know the one I mean!

"Take a **** 'n' shoot it, Baby"

Sounds like something that needs to be in the new Duke Nukem game whenever the hell it comes out.

In my mind it conjures images of tweed clad gentlemen in the English countryside useing excrement as a substitute for clay pigeons.

Is that too memorable?

Haha that's wondeful. "I say, jeeves, I feel like shooting **** today instead of pigeons or poor people! Be a good chap and **** out some **** for me, then throw the **** into the air so that I can shoot it. Be sure to throw it high though, or I'll shoot your bottom, and I know you don't want to happen again!"

Was that cruel to tweed clad English gentelmen? Are there any that look at this site?

So does Jeeves have to provide his own propulsion, so to speak, or is he allowed to use a catapult or something?

Indeed are the ****ting and launching of the **** to be two separate tasks? I don't think we should let Jeeves cheat now.

I'm English but I'm certainly not tweed clad or a gentleman.

I'm a Scout though, does that count?

Heh when I read your post I was like "what's a Scout? Is that a like a Scot or something?" and I even Googled it until I realised how forgetful I've been... it's one of those days!

Apart Jeeves: perhaps he would be forced to swallow the lethal concoction of chicken vindaloo with, I dunno, baking soda and fizzy water. Like a paper mache volcano, only messier.

I was a Scout trainee for a while, but left before I swore my oath of allegiance to the Queen. I was one of the Woodcraft folk for a while, though... they're like the Scouts, but more hippyish.

My father was a Queen Scout. Apparently that was something to be proud of.

"Swearing allegience to the Queen".

I called that a white lie

The Queen Scout award is the highest possible reward, before the Silver Wolf. It's definitely something to be proud of.

Would it be frowned upon if I made a joke about how that sounds pretty gay? Or maybe some comment gay pride being so big now there's a scout badge for it? How about if I use the old "no offense" caveat?

Really? Because I thought it was pretty funny

No, I remember having to swear allegiance to the Queen just to become a Scout. So I never became a Scout. If it wasn't to the Queen then it was to the flag or something.

And Queen Scout? Reminds me a little of this: http://www.pbfcomics.com/archive_b/P...Boy_Scouts.gif

You swear alliegence to yourself and make a promise to yourself on your monarch's name and your "god's" name. I skip the "god" part.

What I had to swear was "To do my duty to God and to the Queen".

My view was that I had no particular obligations to the Queen and God doesn't exist so there were no actual duties to perform. That meant I could quite happily swear to do my duty all day long because it didn't mean anything.

Plus I was 12 and we played with fire, so I would probably have rationalised stomping kittens to death if that's what it took to join in.

Good grief why? I mean the royal family are occasionally entertaining (I love the Duke of Edinburgh, he's hilarious) but mostly they're just a pointless relic.

Yeah, I agree. I wasn't very serious about that one. Although I'm sure it would be (as you say) occasionally entertaining.
But on the other side, isn't it odd to not have a president? (even if is just the same thing with a different title). Pointless topic really, but it's **** to shoot at.

By the way: **** stands for Grog right? Shoot the Grog? no? what about shoot the mojo? ok-ok, I'm leaving.

I thought I'd share a link to some of Prince Philip's famous quotes.

Quote:
When visiting China in 1986, he told a group of British students, "If you stay here much longer, you'll all be slitty-eyed"
This man goes on official state visits representing my nation. Makes me ... proud?

When a page is censored in the UK, the entire domain is routed through a proxy server so all visitors from the UK will appear as the same visitor to the servers of Wikipedia. The consequence is that the entire country is blocked because it becomes an excellent way of doing vandalism.

This is a sticky problem. Whilst this is clearly very uncool and I am completely opposed to any censorship of the net, I don't think ISPs should be forced not to do so.

The real question is is there enough competition in the ISP market? People should be able to easily move to the 5% of ISPs that do not enforce the blacklist if they want to, can they do so? How easy is it to identify ISPs that have opted out, or indeed opted in? Are ISPs that offer uncensored access available in the same geographical locations as other ISPs?

Personally I think the big ISPs should be broken up and advertising should be clearer on these points.

Hmm. I could get through to it, but I wish now that I hadn't been able to.

I think that Wikipedia should censor the image with a wee black strip or something. But I probably don't think it should be banned by ISPs.

I've just done a quick google image search and really, I don't know what al the fuss is about. This is no more offensive or "potentially illegal" than, say, the work of Edward Weston.

I really disapprove of this knee jerk think-of-the-children mentality which seems so prevalent these days.

The idea is that countries which censor information like this tend not to be the freest of nations. Especially the criteria for what is censored appears to "potentially illegal" (which can be applied to literally anything) rather than actually illegal.

On a related note, I just saw this which is equally retarded. How can anyone possibly argue that this is right?

EDIT: I had written this whole meandering rant about the article linked to above but ended up deleting it because it was a meandering rant. I left the two sentences above intact because I thought they were related enough to the conversation to still warrant inclusion. Unfortunately I hadn't realised that, if you don't notice the link, it looks like I'm refering to the quote from Gabez below. Gabez is not retarded - I love him.

I could not disagree more (although I agree they have every right to choose to do so). Your objection is purely based on what you find offensive to your culture not objective assessment. If you think that Wikipedia should censor content to be sensitive to someone's culture then you must surely agree that cartoons featuring the prophet Mohammed must be censored. Indeed if I say I am offended by images of fruit then Wikipedia should also take my views into account and remove or censor any bananas, apples or strawberries.

Ignoring this for a moment though let's assume that the image is pornographic in nature, how does putting a black strip over it make it OK? If I were to sell a book filled with nothing but child pornography that had been censored with black bars I would still be profiting from child abuse but, according to your logic, that's fine because you can't see anything naughty.

I think you might have responded to my point differently if you had heard me say it aloud: I meant "they should censor it," as in "they should be ashamed of themselves!!" not "they should censor it" as in "ban this sick filth now."

Likewise, I think Wikipedia "should" censor swear words, not because putting asterixes in them changes them into other words, but because if I were Wikipedia, I should like to censor my swear words.

Does that make sense?

Also, when I support pirates, I'm such a terrorist lover; but when it comes to censoring child porn, suddenly I'm a Nazi! */Not serious*
