Eh, stringjack, what is the point in putting this into "chat"?

The public can't see "chat".

You're so right though SIL, the place is mind-blowingly boring and you've put your finger on the very reasons.

If it's mind blowingly boring given the year that has been 2016... then there's no hope for the place...

I think the lines between the 'real world' and 'stupidity/lunacy' have become so blurred this year that there's no room left for any meaningful debate... there's no room for anything in a 'post truth' world...

Reality is getting close to beyond parody... that's how ridiculous reality has become...

And yet it's understandable too... the sheer frustration with the kind of slick vacuous spin career politics that became the norm in the 1990s...

The result... Brexit and Trump have seen the triumph of moronic simplicity - much of it fuelled by blatant lies that everyone knows are blatant lies, and yet the blatant lies are no longer a deterrent to voting for the blatant liars...

It's a sad place we've gotten to... in the gutter.

And 2017 doesn't look like it's going to get any better...

I was bored sh!tless with Trump during the last 18 months and now we've got at least 4 more f***ing years of him and his bullsh!t... January 20th is going to be one sad day.

And of course Brexit is going to just go on and on and on and on and on.... :roll:

Have a Quakertastic Christmas!
Now you're trying to bring out Ratio, the Ghost of Christmas Past (or perhaps Christmas on Another Planet), by invoking Quakerism!

Ye scoundrel.

Most people who are mad.....(actually clinically mad) think that they are totally sane and that everyone else is mad.
Ring any bells?
Oh and Happy Christmas or something.
