It was the name of one of my maternal (edit) great (oops!) grandfathers (so yes) but it kind of ruins the effect when you explain that to people, so keep it to yourself.

I wonder if you could clarify the meaning the above canon fodder/warriors you describe? 

Mmm, would there was a difference between the two distinctions, from feeding the poppies of Flanders fields, to patrolling those of Helmands, they fulfill both.

And in this I mean no disrespect, it has always been so.

When I finally go postal, (I am building a repeating ballista to be mounted on a google AI driven flatbed), at least one of my intended victims will be someone who made a career out of cramming his hand up some cute puppets arse and mewling cloying mawkish inanities designed to pull at the heartstrings of sickly children, thereby spreading corruptive sentimentality, calculated to undermine the spirit of England’s future warriors/canon-fodder.
You sir, by bringing to my notice this particular example of the wretched breed, may well have hastened his demise.

Welcome, you may find in the early stages of integration a feeling of nausea and disorientation, breathe deeply and remain calm.
Do not try to make friends or curry favour, three out of four murders are committed by people known to the victim.
Be yourself, is the worst advice.
Remember that whether the boundaries of the earth are spherical or flat, human stupidity is limitless.
Maintain your sense of humour.

Is it a thing? Are we different from the rest of the world? Do we still have anything to offer now we have misplaced our empire?

In this increasingly homogenised world, national identity has become subservient to corporate hegemony. (I have just read that back to myself and I apologise for the pretentiousness, but I’m English and I love the language). The above poncey line has a kernel of truth, but that way of thinking leads to (amongst others) the nationalistic “golden-age” crap I have no time for, Brexit,  and our English equivalents of Trump; Boris Johnson (the first human/teddy-bear/psychopath hybrid to go to Eton) and Jacob Rees-mogg (the first Stepford-husband assimilated by the Borg to go to Eton). And to be honest if you let it be so, then you are a chinless swamp donkey.

As well as the Eton types* who seem to run the country, there is a myriad of kinds of English. We and most of the world are surrounded by our antiquity; dolmens, menhirs, burial mounds, castles, dykes and ruins of all ages, able to plug us in to the centuries past for a sense of perspective. That surprisingly few do this and instead follow the shallow footsteps of America, is a worry.

It is small wonder the US is the home of most of the worlds proponents of a 6,000 old Earth as when you had finished the genocide of the indigenous peoples, that, became your year zero. The remaining pueblos and spear heads are not yours, but a symbol of your shame and you suffer from history disconnect as a result, hence marvel, Christian science and your attempt to fill the resultant void with calories, to the extent when I visited 10 or so years ago I spent a good proportion of my time exclaiming “Jesus creeping shit look at the size of that!”  That you then exported obesity to the parts of the world that could afford it (do you want fries with that?), means now that it isn’t funny any longer, as rising sea levels in England (in part) from the number of homegrown fatties threatens to flood Norfolk, thereby drowning a good sum of said chunkiness. Locking us into a sequence of bobbing up and down in the North Sea until sense prevails.

Having failed to answer any of the three proposed questions I will have to return later, as I am supposed to be working (very British).

 * (and here we see the self-perpetuating problem with the UK “Public” school system. That is, if you take children (particularly boys) away from their parents, and hand them over to sadistic pederasts for their formative years/education, you get a stratum of society who are devoid of normal human warmth, and consequently have the singularity of mind to want to rise in power, as hierarchy is an exaggerated and pervasive portion of their lives, then when they decide to have offspring, armed with that lack of humanity, they see no problem in subjecting their issue to the same, as, (to them) it did them no harm!)

I just wondered now the millionaire Harvey Weinstein has been outed as a misogynistic creepy pervert, does that make him (as he backed Hilary) the front runner for the democrat presidential candidate.

Has anybody checked that Boo isn’t a bot?

He/it can’t read or respond to more than 1 line of text, his retorts when they come are trite clichés and they all have links to “dead religions are us” southern style!

Not changing the fundamental rights of a population (to kill each other) based on the needs of gun manufacturers profit margins and good old boy sentiments, despite the mounting tragedies, typically are the best kind of (non)changes.

Fixed that!

Gun manufacturers profit margins wouldn't be terribly affected by a consumer gun ban, since their biggest customer has been is will always be governments around the world. Many European countries might have distaste for our gun policy, but that distaste disappears when they order our weapons en masse for their own purposes.

You underestimate your addiction!

Number of firearms manufactured in the US in 2013 (for instance), 10,847,792. Number of those guns that stayed in the domestic market (US), 10,413,880, only about 4% exported. Of all the small arms the UK armed forces have, most are made either in the UK, Europe or in Canada the only US ones are sniper rifles.
The NSSF reports that the domestic firearms industry (US) is worth $42.9 billion, however the cost of fatal and non-fatal gun violence to the U.S, is estimated at $229 billion due to your retarded health system.

That is why serious gun control will never happen, not only will it cost the gun makers but all the attendants to its effects would suffer too. Quite a little industry, sell killing and maiming machines to the masses and call it freedom, and then build another billion-dollar industry to benefit from the carnage.

Edit; 2013 US exported small arms = $1.1 billion, Imports $2.5 billion, what Rushy not checking his figures again, surely not.

So that's it then? You ask a morally loaded question, someone (Rama) tries to give you a nuanced thoughtful answer and all you have got, is a link?

Do you actually have a position of your own on anything, or do you just log onto dadsbollocks and go "yeah that"?

I suppose life is easier if you just relinquish all decision making over to a higher authority, one of the siren songs of religion, don't worry about thinking, we've got it covered.

Now you're getting it.

However I won't be smashing children on the rocks as that I find objectionable.

Personally I don't think it should be a method of birth control but there are situations (rape) where there should be the option.

Now please don't get sanctimonious from the “good” book on me as there are many samples of god and his minions being more than happy to slaughter children (see above) and;

Happy those who seize your children and smash them against a rock. (Psalms 137:9 NAB)

PS: the scripture you quote is not Christian instruction .... a little out of dispensation and context

Well forgive me, as I don’t much care but when I read “you must” and “as the Lord your God has commanded you”, I hear instructions, but you carry on cherry picking what suits your agenda and I will continue believing it’s all outdated bronze age nonsense that in parts incites genocide, rape and incest amongst other things, and as you want to get into a baby killing debate, how about;

“Anyone who is captured will be run through with a sword.  Their little children will be dashed to death right before their eyes.  Their homes will be sacked and their wives raped by the attacking hordes.  For I will stir up the Medes against Babylon, and no amount of silver or gold will buy them off.  The attacking armies will shoot down the young people with arrows.  They will have no mercy on helpless babies and will show no compassion for the children. (Isaiah 13:15-18 NLT)”

God is love?

while we are quoting;

Deuteronomy 7:1-2    When the Lord your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations . . . then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy.
20:10-17    When you march up to attack a city, make its people an offer of peace. If they accept and open their gates, all the people in it shall be subject to forced labor and shall work for you. If they refuse to make peace and they engage you in battle, lay siege to that city. When the Lord your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the men in it. As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves. . . . This is how you are to treat all the cities that are at a distance from you and do not belong to the nations nearby.
     However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. Completely destroy them—the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites—as the Lord your God has commanded you.


Except for the flying bit!

Hmm, take Doug up on his offer, it’s time you got out more. He’s right about the bird flight too, I’m hoping you live in the city, otherwise your disbelief of the most rudimentary of bird behaviour is inexplicable.

It is a hunting bird’s adaptation, by facing into the wind and adjusting the wings and tail, the bird remains stationary to the ground, with very little expenditure of energy. The European Kestrel (named in the vid’), is a master (it’s called the windhover in parts of Britain), they only need the slightest of breezes to hang almost motionless as they look for prey (small mammals and large insects), sea birds and especially Terns have the same high aspect ratio wing design that allows slow flight so they can scan for food. Apart from taking little energy it allows the bird to not only keep an eye on an area that is liable to contain prey, but its relative motionlessness renders it less visible, as it is movement that alerts prey.

Terns & Kestrels are not alone, I have watched Raven’s on the North Devon coast hanging on the breeze pushed up by cliffs, and in the right conditions, crows seem to enjoy riding a storm wind and competing to stay the stillest on the gusts.

We did this some time ago here

I also did a simple perspective drawing of how parallel lines can look like that from 4 different views

The pink bits were going to be clouds but I never got round to finishing it (it's at work) but you can seehow it works. The yellow cylinder in the top right view is just visible in the bottom left.
