Unfeminine? Does that mean what I think it means, that only guys are allowed to have these ugly repulsive tatts? Times change grandad. BTW, what is the translation of the tatt in question, anybody?

Assume nothing is safe, not even for 5 seconds. Loc...

Siem Reap destroyed

I first traveled to Siem Reap in 2013, I thought it was a pleasant little town.

Re: Prince Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth, has died

Yawn. Another 'inherited wealth and privelege' parasite gone. One down, so many more to go. The poms whinge about it, but they love having a foot on their necks. There’s always one. Pray tell, who exactly has a foot on their neck, and who’s foot is it? I didnt know him personally, so no bad feeling...
