It seems I have taken over the Forums this afternoon...this is for the following reason:-
Posted in General Discussion.
LOL quiet then !!!
We're all far too busy to be responding to threads like this.
I have just took on a night run it depressed me knowing that I would have to do a 500 miler in the week thoughout the night but then it appeared that I would not get back for a daily 10 miler that we always do ......So sadly my lad is going to have to do it ..ha ha !!!!
Apart from that it is quite !!
Barnsley Shipping, if you a wee bit quiet then what about delivering a few Pizzas & some rogan joshs?
The Kabab and Pizza houses around here do a really good job on their own they dont need me !! There might be some work in Hull though
its the pretend olympics, thats why its gone quiet again, people in london love it as it gives them perfect excuse not to go to work, again.
What do you mean by the pretend Olympics?
The people participating in the pretend Olympics have more guts than anybody on here, it takes somebody without guts to make such a stupid and pathetic comment.
I must be a pretend courier then?
i call it the pretend Olympics as most things in it are not Olympic sports anymore, i call all Olympics pretend Olympics, pro athletes taking part in whats meant to be amateur games.
Missing hand? I call that pretty essential when you rely on your hands and arms to support your weight on a bike. They are in categories of impairment to try and even things out so in my book she did good.
3T your like most people in this industry no guts and no glory (Oh yeh most have guts fat guts !!)
What you have said about the bravest sportspeople in our country tells us more about you than it does anybody else ...
Paralympics are nearer to what the original format was all about, it is a shame the corporate and marketing men have encroached, and pro's are allowed to participate in both Olympics and Paralympics. Sad to day tho but without money no one would be there.
My lad was watching one of the ladies sprint events on television this morning and he says to me ... "what's wrong with any of them then" ... referring to the fact that none of the competitors appeared to have any obvious disability. I must admit that I struggled to try and explain to him about 'hidden' disabilities in a sporting context.
"but come on if you watch it most athletes are not really disabled, one wheelchair basket ball team has 3 players that can walk they just play well in the chairs, yep its the british team"
If by being able to walk you think they're able bodied.....look again...i think you'll find they're wearing prosthetics when not in the chair!!!!...
sorry if i offended some of you but i stand by my comment that some of the athletes should not be there, did anyone else see the brit 16 year old girl swimmer from norwich, she won gold and she has learning difficulties, in her tv interview afterwards she was maybe a little slow maybe nervous but she was able bodied, in the same race as a girl with one hand missing, how is that fair.
Never judge a person until you've walked a mile in their shoes.
dont get me wrong my friends dad has had his legs amputated due to diabetes and watching it he claims too many athletes do not deserve to be there, i have been impressed with the cerabl palsey ones, must be hardest thing when you cant really control your muscles, and clearly the amputees are great but i stick by the fact a midget should not be there, it makes him mad when you bring her up, he goes right into one about how she has 2 arms, 2 legs, full use of all her body yet coz she is short she earns 25k per year funding and has an easy life, he on the other hand has no legs but lives on 200 pound a week which he needs to spend each week for a carer so he can bath himself.
all i said was it was quiet....lol
