I used to be somewhat intolerant I'll be the first to admit that. However when I realised I was I went out of my way to correct it. I had always thought I was pretty tolerant I now have overcome my inherent prejudices. You never realise just how much of an impact growing up within a certain atmosphere can have on you culturally.

I hate getting branded racist just because you don't like someone:
"Got something against (insert race/colour/creed) people do you?"
NO! I have something against YOU personally! I don't care that you're (insert race/colour/creed), just that you're a  :swear: -ing  :swear: -hole! Every other (insert race/colour/creed) I've met is a perfectly reasonable human being.

people who use the phrase "i'm not racist but..."

Then they'll top it off with the "...I have lots of black/asian friends so how can I be racist!". There was a real classic, I can't remember where I saw it, where the poster proudly said he even lets them use his bathroom!  :roll:

Generally if a post starts with "I'm not [insert random negative attribute] but..." I generally stop reading.


Or the phrase "Hell I'm a foreigner, how can I be racist!?" That's commonly used to, heard it from quite a few turkish, polish and finnish racists resident in Sweden.

On a similar vein; those who say I have no idea how it is to have it rough; since I'm white.....

I'm sorry, I didn't know that its easier to be out of money when you're white.  For the life of me; I never get a free meal just by showing up and being white at a resturant.....

Faulty diagnosises when you DO get to a hospital.
I went a good many years ago in Shotts (small town between Glasgow and Edinburgh) because I had taken a fall from the fourth floor. I crawled in, they checked briefly said "sprained ankle" and gave me crutches. Two weeks later I had to get back to Sweden (still couldn't walk) because my interrail card was expiring. I had to crawl unto  EVERY train between Shotts and Stockholm and in the hospital there it turned out both heels had multiple fractures and had healed pretty badly. What can I say, I'll never be a long distance runner (still can walk far without problems though) and the knees have taken damage because of it...

Well that doesn't really work the same as it's kind of the opposite in that it implies your about to make a positive statement regarding those subjects.  :wry:

Though come to think of I see what you did there...

I think what Brandlin meant to say was:  "I don't have anything against flyers but they really only serve the purpose of providing a very cool subject for a diorama.  Otherwise they do nothing for me."



I love mine, personally.  I think I have finally dedcided how I'll deal with the landing gear.  Photos in a year, but don't push me on that.

Getting a fine for speeding on my way to a doctor's appointment for an examination the doc thinks may be pancreatic cancer.  I can't even pay $15/month to have fun as it is.  How am I going to pay for a fine? (or health care, if need be?)  Naff!

I'm hoping for results today after another examination.  Meanwhile, I've found this from a respectable clinic here:

Quote
Pancreatic cancer often has a poor prognosis, even when diagnosed early. Pancreatic cancer typically spreads rapidly and is seldom detected in its early stages, which is a major reason why it's a leading cause of cancer death. Signs and symptoms may not appear until pancreatic cancer is quite advanced and surgical removal isn't possible.
  I could really do with it being a different diagnosis.

I hope for your sake, that it is a different diagnosis!  That is one tough break...I hope things turn out for the better, I really do.

A quick look at results: it appears normal, thoug we don't have an explanation for what's going on.
