There are no words for this.


Erm...

No-one is forcing girls to take part. Also, the only people allowed to post are 18+

I'm not really seeing the issue with this, it's not like they're gone "Tits or GTFO!" or insisted that you must be topless (in fact, they've said you HAVE to be clothed)

It's a bit on the tacky side, true, buuuuuut... eh. No-one is being forced to participate.

Eh, sorry but I have to agree with Nixie on this one. If girls want to show their cleavages then I'm all for it, to be perfectly honest.

But yeah if it was proper nudes or kids or whatever then I'd definitely think it was wrong!

ergh getting sick of being called a "boring bitch" or something similar. I have naut against people who drink and drunk (facebook has pictorial evidence of my own drunken antics), hell I quite happily sit in the bar at anime cons sipping my carbonated caffeinated drink of choice while others drink themselves merry. However I can't drink at all atm due to medical reasons and I personally don't like night clubs, I just don't like the environment. So freshers week, first night I get called a "boring bitch" by one of the fresher reps of all people when i turn down (politely I might add) a night out and every night if I was in this has been a repeat occurance. Now I have not been completely anti social, been to events like quizes and BBQs, plus some lazer quest and anime film night. However for the last couple of days I have been quite ill and I am still sore (all my joints ache) so today was meant to be this big competition day between the different halls, kind of like sports day with stuff like 5 a side, inflatable stuff, egg and spoon race and random fun stuff like that. However being still in a delicate state and my classes starting next week I decided not to go ( I hadn't signed up for anything, I was just gunna go, cheer, meet people, go on inflatable stuff that didn't require signing up). I was told that yet again I was being boring and that I was "letting the side down". Just getting bored of being called boring

You'll always get idiots - They're basing things off you after knowing you for 5 minutes, don't let it bother you. Either they'll change their mind when they get to know/understand you or, if they still do it, then they don't really want to get to know you. So yea, just don't let it bother you - first weeks are always bad.

You are better than they are, at somepoint idiots like that will realise that they;ve wasted their time. Seriously, drinking isn't everthing, I have one every now and then (at cons mainly) but it's not everything. It's very annoying when people think that drinking is so important, you know how to have fun, if these people are treating you like that, then you're better without them.

Hate hearing that people are treating you like this.

I just wanted to say thank to those who posted messages of support for me this week.

You are amazing people

Oh my god, I feel for you so bad. The amount of people I know and all they want to do is go to clubs and get drunk, I just don't get it at all... Although people more often say to me something like "You don't know what you're missing." Actually, I do. It got boring after the umpteenth time, and costs way more than it should.

Anyway, you're so better off without people like that. Do the things that you like, and if people have a problem with it then tough!

The other night some guy grabbed me and grinded against me in a club (at freshers) and I was slightly drunk and grinded against him until I managed to get rid of him. I was scared and confused and didn't know how to get him off so I went along with it, but I've never felt more guilty about something, although my boyfriend says it's okay and he forgives me. My flatmates won't stop teasing me about it but I feel completely awful about it.


30 Sep 2012 - 03:0691897
On a slight related topic of drinking I've been at my dads and step mums house; as often as its usually a pretty fun place to be for me, I generally dislike it when my dad drinks. He has at times scared me, but this time he was just loud and obnoxious. To be constantly told my music is crap by not only my dad but my step mum and step brother too, and not to be able to get a word in because everyone is talking so loudly to the point of yelling.

/rant over.

I think you underestimate the age demographic of AL.

The fact it's there, advertised alone promotes the behaviour. But as you say, no-one is forcing anyone else to do it.. other than unspoken peer pressure, as it is a popularity contest in a place where individuals are so broken down with self esteem they'll do anything for a few brownie points. Giving the option is almost as bad as forcing someone to do it.

They should know better, But if you're okay with not knowing and dismissing it as just a bit of fun, you're just as guilty as the guy who ends up with 14 year old girls sending him pictures of their cleavages. Because let's face it; the chance of that happening is there and because it's there it is immoral.



In other news my garden has been the subject of an arson attack. Very much of it and next door's garden has been destroyed and we've lost in the region of £2000-3000 in equipment, materials, land damage, smoke damage etc etc. Lucky no-one was hurt, but it was adolescent children who didn't know any better.

And not knowing any better can get someone hurt.

Isn't that right, everyone?

Maybe, but it's still their choice. If you ask me, if you start smoking because all of your friends are doing it, you've still only got yourself to blame when you get lung cancer. Same for anything, saying "Someone else forced me into it." doesn't mean anything when you actually had every right and opportunity to say no.

And as for me, I have my standards and boundaries. Ok yes, minors voluntarily joining in on this kinda stuff did slip my mind, but then that would be where I draw the line personally. When you say "If there's a chance it could happen", wouldn't that make a lot of things immoral? Would it be immoral if I organised a game of football with my friends because there's a fair chance Jimmy will flip out and there will be an argument or a fight? It could happen, but it doesn't make it immoral.

I am sorry to hear about your garden, by the way. Some people just really have no respect, I think! Although like you said, at least nobody was hurt.

Your simile is valid, and we could compare the AL post to an older child smoking or an advert (now banned) encouraging smoking. Though we can only hope that AL take the same course of action as the advertising authorities had taken and banned such adverts.

As for the football one, there's always a chance some douchebag will get his panties in a twist, but years of sportsmanship ethos and everyone getting used to football being a pansy sport nullify any surprise on that end. AL is known for really bad shit, given past happenings and the thinking processes it's a unique situation... which is something I should have made clear. If it was posted on CI, we'd all go "well, up to you, do what you want". When it's on AL, it's more "Oh not this shit again..Call the police"


Tbh I hated that shed so they did me a favour, though next door's is a different story and I'm a bit sad they lost out much more than me. Ah well, it's why we've got home insurance.

Going on the cleavage thing; I have no idea what "AL" is like (is this Alcon btw?) so I don't know if this is a regular occurrence. However, I still feel it's down to the individual to decide if they want to take a snapshot of there cleavage. And it's different to combing 14 year olds for the same; at the age of 18, you should have the rationale to go "do I really want to post a shot of my breasts online for strangers to see?" and not feel forced because some person suggested it.

By that age, you should be past the "oh, I have to do this to be cool!" thing.

Same goes with smoking, on that. I can understand a 14 year old succumbing to peer pressure and picking up a cigarette, maybe so people would stop bullying them, but you should really be able to think for yourself at the age of 16/17/18. The "but everyone else was doing it!" isn't the best excuse in the book.

Regarding the arson; that is pretty shitty, really. I know you have insurance but still, WTF do people cause such random destruction?

But good thing no-one was hurt - does anyone know who may have done it, or is it just "random youth/youth group number 24"?

There had been youths using firelighters on the other side of the estate in bins, electricity boxes etc. It was as you say, random youths.

What infruriates me is what the policeman said; "We as homeowners have a duty of care to not intentionally harm tresspassers or criminals because they too are human beings. Intentionally harming someone by putting broken glass on the top of walls or striking them down if they are there can put you at risk of being liable for prosecution."

I know, it's enough to make you vomit.

He did however tell me ways to get around that legal bullshit, which is something I shall be doing in overkill. If you look at the way he worded it, it should be enough to explain what he means.

I've uploaded a picture of the damage, click here; http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v57/Jaegor/IMG_20120929_140324.jpg

You can see next door's too. The area at the back, between the waist high iron fence and the mesh fencing is wasteground that has been used as unnofficial access to the field behind the house. That's how they got behind the shed and set it on fire.

Is it the "intentional" part? As I'd take that as a "well, I didn't intentionally hurt anyone. That barb wire/spikes/whatever is purely to stop pigeons from sitting on my fence."

Anyway, I thought all that was an omega grey area anyway? That farmer who was arrested for shooting those two burglars, he ended up winning is case, right? Although, he did have EVERYONE on his side, I believe.

Wow... that's a lot of damage...

On the plus side, ash makes for pretty good fertiliser, believe it or not.

It's quite black and white, if you know where to look.

That farmer had the prosecution on him and it was a battle, the fact it was taken to court alone shows how twisted the law is. The criminal got what he deserved, it's all well and good saying "he's human too" but someone breaking into your house is terrifying. A stranger in your safe place, yet they have the law on their side.

What I will do is invest in pest control. It's very legal and encouraged to hinder birds and vermin from climbing walls and such.

Having some really problems with my PC and I don't know why. Seems to lock up and all I can do to sort it is unplug at the mains (which can't be any good for it). All I can think of was that I upgrade AVG and it doesn't like it.

All of a sudden today my right speaker just decided not to work any more. I really can't figure out what's happened to it, I never listen to my music uber loud, so I can't imagine I've busted it.

Man, driving without music makes me crazy! D:

Could you not buy a pink dress and alter it? As long as there is not a lot of sewing, you could hand stitch parts of it (to be fair, with the veil thing you'd need to do that anyway).

Also, nowadays there are a lot of ways of doing stuff without using thread - hemming tape, for example, where you just iron it up like that.

Looking at your design; something like this with then chiffon attached to that ruffle.

Look, you can even buy the chiffon skirt, just put it on under that ruffle and cut off everything you don't want to be seen :3

No buddy, NOBODY sings louder than me in the shower. It's the one (of many) places I am completely shameless. I can't sing and constantly remind my family of this fact. XD

But anyway, as I've noticed my tasks seem to have been piling up lately because I haven't really had time, and Resident Evil 6 came out, I made a list of all the little and big tasks I keep meaning to do and looking at it I suddenly realised I actually have more than I thought to do. SO this weekend shall be a delightful cocktail of work, sorting out my speakers, tidying my car, kung fu, more work, tidying my room, cosplay work then probably a little bit of revision for my instructor's meeting on Wednesday.

Goddamn I can't wait for MCM!
