Posted:Why do old ladies put fluffy covers on the toilet seat covers - is it to keep them warm, or to be cushiony if they need to sit on them?

Why do they also put specially shaped bits of carpetty-stuff on the floor around the base of the toilet? Is it in case the boys miss? Isn't it just a bit weird?

Why did Tyrannosaurus Rex's have little front paws. Is that why they were so angry all the time? Surely it would have been a better design to have long, scary looking paws? eek

Why, when my computer tells me that it's closing down cos I've performed an "illegal operation" doesit only give me the choice to click a box saying "ok".
No.
It is not.
OK.

Finally. Why, when I need to scream - like if someone jumps out at me in an "oh so funny" way, do I just make an odd "oooaaauuurgghhh" noise? Isn't it meant to scare away predators, screaming? What kind of predator would be scared away by that? It's not even that loud.

Come on, join me in my confused about stuff rant. confused

Thats why they have the carpet round the bottom! To soak it up when your distracted as the seat drops half way through.

But why do they put frilly dressed dolls over toilet rolls?

I totally agree - what, is it embarrassing to have spare toilet roll, but less embarrassing to have a barbie doll wearing a knited dress stuffed with a toilet roll?!?
That is very odd. confused

Why don't mobie phones come with torches as an extra feature? How many times have you seen someone using their / you yourself used your mobile as as way to light your path in the dark? Come on Nokia, just build a phone with a torch in the top!

Yeah - why can't Nokia make my mobile into....a fire poi!!!! devil
Maybe not. (I still can't spin unlight poi).

I had no idea Nokia made torch/flashlight phones. That would have been really handy for me when I was lost on Bodmin moor in the middle of the night for four hours.....

Grrrrr. Why does it always seen to rain more on Sundays?

i use mine every night to find my bed! biggrin i don't know if there is some other nokia that is specifically designed to be a torch, but mine works pretty damn well except you have to keep pressing the button to relight it... and it does the trick for midnight walking in rural areas too, i noticed that, would have been useful to ward off the beast.... it works to surprise cats at least...

i had a confused rant to contribute to this thread but i got so confused by it that i felt it best to block it out of my mind and have consequently forgotten what it was.... shrug

WHY IS LIFE SO COMPLICATED AND SLOW?? I have lots of plans and aspirations, but it feels like nothing is actually happening.

(Lizzybeth, your man probably doesn't even realise it's bugging you... if he does, just start up some happy conversation about one of your favorite exes in retaliation! He'll soon get the point. hug

Posted:Why is it that all women are ALL about retaliation? EVERY time any man does something wrong to a woman you have to deal with the retaliation of her. Many times its completly accidental when we do things like what liz's boy did but instead of retaliating why not just tell him it bothers you? does it bother you he still has all these things or that he was going thru them? Why cant we keep memories of times past? hes with you now and not her for a reason i dont understand why it should bother you.

and ms. fairy, there is nothing wrong with remembering and sharing times of old. Ive come to realize in recent relationships that if you arnt comfortable talking to yer significant other, even about yer past relationships, how far do you really think yer going to get with them?

Posted:That's the thing... we know sometimes it's accidental and means no harm, we know we shouldn't feel intimidated by it or bad about it, but, well, sometimes we do! A lot of the time the retaliation is our way of saying 'this bothers me!' indirectly, because we know deep down that we have no real right to really be bothered about it! Like when your boyfriend starts looking at another girl's boobs, we know guys can't help doing this, it's just biology and nature and does not mean he will leave you, but most girls still feel a little bad about it or intimidated by it. All humans have their little insecurities after all!

Please note, I only suggested the retaliation if her guy KNOWS that what he's doing is getting on her nerves but he does it anyway. In which case I think she's entitled to give him a taste of it too... if he's happy sharing memories about past partners it wouldn't bother him anyway, would it?

(I do agree with you on this point, I think partners should be able to share past memories of times when they weren't together... but some people find this more difficult than others depending on what their relationships and circumstances are like. Just because some people find this more difficult than others doesn't necessarily doom their relationships though!). hug

Posted:ah well. he knows what he is doing. she has been a major problem to us, being a psycho stalker and a rather nasty piece of work. and things arnt good with us atm, so it was a bad move on his part. im a peacful creature in relationships, but he has driven me mad. im thinking no retaliation. might just leave him. im not one for retaliation, however i have never before had a guy treat me so shoddily. i think generally its the wrong course as your all right - mostly men dont know when they have done stuff wrong. but this one does. anyhow. gotta go load more stuff into the car. i move into my first ever house *without family* tomorow morning and i have so much stuff to do...i have so much stuff! if i was brave enough id throw it all away. cheers for the support hug
