    Re: American has lost the plot

    More to the point: How many of any kind of shootings have we had in the past 50 years or so?

    Re: American has lost the plot

    A very good idea which, in America, hasn't a hope in hell of working because of the powerful gun lobby who, as I understand it, have the voting power in the US Senate and will block any attempt at...

    Re: Why is it called "The Boneyard"?

    That just shows your lack of intelligence when you have to sink to that low an insult. It's plain to see that you don't have the mental capacity to come up with something original.

    You are...

    Re: Why is it called "The Boneyard"?

    Thank you Ken. I did not know that, but then I do not have the slightest interest in Yank history. I have much more interest in NZ history which, so far as I am concerned, has much more relevance to...

    Re: Why is it called "The Boneyard"?

    I don't watch westerns - I have very little time for Yank films.:rolleyes: I'm a fan of British films and television. So that seems to be why I have not heard of it.:(

    Re: They are becoming ridiculous!

    I'm with you, Clive. Why do they have to parade around making so much noise? As has been said previously in this thread, I'm not against them doing what they want in the privacy of their own homes,...

    Re: Why is it called "The Boneyard"?

    Thank you, Piroska. I had not heard that term before. I would have called it a scrap yard, particularly if it was for cars.

    Why is it called "The Boneyard"?

    There is a story in the news lately of the first Qantas aircraft to leave the Alice Springs Boneyard.

    But why do they call it a Boneyard? I have seen an aerial shot of the area and there are many...

    It may be natural in the animal world but society has said for millennia that poufters are unnatural and I don't think that there are too many people who would describe them as natural just because...

    Re: Indigenous?

    I wonder who you refer to as "everybody"? The only ones I can think of who claim to be indigenous is the maoris and they are never too far away if there is a few million to be had.

    But I can't...

    Re: They are becoming ridiculous!

    Yes, I don't understand that either. In any case, what's wrong with using the word "poufter"? Because that's what they are - queer. It's not natural at all.:waughh:

    Re: I have no use for a cave man language

    Very well said. I quite agree. I'm certain you are correct. It is only the very few - usually the ones that make the most noise - that are proficient in maori, but the majority are not. And you may...

    Re: What has happened to You Tube?

    Thank you for that, 1101. I have been using Chrome so I tried IE instead and it seems to work alright there.

    The other option is the dongle I have been given by a m8 which plays through the TV - I...

    Re: What has happened to You Tube?

    Thank you 1101. When I click on that it gives me about 20 videos all down the left side with very small text that I cannot read. It also goes to m.youtube.com so I'm not quite certain what to do.

    What has happened to You Tube?

    I have typed in www.youtube.com and it changes to www.m.youtube.com which is different.

    In the old version it would bring up videos listed in their types, such as documentaries, comedy, music,...

    Re: I have no use for a cave man language

    I quite agree, BM. And it has been going on for years. One example is maori going to university. Europeans have to pay to go to university but not maori. You would have thought that that would...

    It might belong to you but it certainly does not belong to me. It might be unique but I don't have or want any part in keeping it alive. It should be the maoris who want to keep it alive - not me....

    I was not talking about maori names (as in towns or suburbs) I was talking about using maori words instead of English words, which many people do not understand. If you read my post fully, you would...
