Things that make no sense

Anything goes in The Snug, the GD's rebellious little brother. An off-topic den of iniquity for non-football/news related musings.

The referee's performance in last nights Speedway final (1st leg) between Poole and Kings Lynn. Absolutely shocking!

Must have had that half a dozen times online from Facebook and Twitter through to forums!

I was originally booked to stay in wonderful wonderful Copenhagen but they moved the match. Thankfully hadn't booked flights.

The sad reality with twitter is, the vast majority of people don't give two flying ones about that picture, or what it might "represent", but twitter gives a loud voice to a very vocal minority of people.

Is it subconsciously sexist? Quite possibly. Is it a big deal? Not even remotely.

We need a war, don't we?

Sexist against who though?

Perhaps the male who is stereotyped as a 'provider' because of his preoccupation with finance and business, even while enjoying a luxury break.

Ridiculously sexist. Portraying men as boring, overly serious, and no idea how to eat healthily. The woman on the other hand clearly knows how to look after herself, and has the ability to chill out and switch off whilst staying in a nice hotel.

I know the article is a few years ago but this has me baffled. :eh:

A Canadian man who was married, with seven kids, has left his family in order to fulfill his true identity - as a six-year-old girl. She now resides with an adoptive 'mommy and daddy' and spends her time playing with dolls and the couple's young grandchildren

That even in 2018, Prince Andrew still doesn't understand why the world thinks so little of him. Same goes for his big brother, now I think about it.

Having spent hours and hours in the last year dealing with these numpties and their IT which seems to run off an old Windows 95 PC I totally agree.
