  1. And their getting their evidence from made up myths. The rule of thumb was not based on a law. Even Wikipedia says the law didn’t exist.

  2. “Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it.”

    I didn’t know that about picnics, you live and learn. I suppose that means Teddy Bear should now have trigger warnings because of their propensity to have picnics.

    Oops, I should have included a warning at the start of that second sentence.

    Can I use sentence? People are sentenced to death and more black people are sentenced to death ….

    “Bloke” has very…er…blokey connotations so is a bit too macho. North could easily be associated with the North v South divide, not to mention the American Civil war and probably something bad happened to someone from an Ethic minority in Dorset (which is a very white county).

    Could you change your name on here to “in”?

  5. Words fail me ………….. if I’m allowed to say that given that “fail” may be seen to have negative connotations?

    Even Wiki gets it arse about face. Rule is in the sense of measure & the imperial inch is an approximation of the the width of the thumb. Yes. That way round.
    You have to think about the way people made things before standardisation. Each craftman’s measures were his own. The width of his thumb was an available & useful small interval of length. That the width of his thumb differed from that of another craftman’s was irrelevant. As long as his measures were internally consistent he could design & make something. If it was necessary to interface with another’s measures – make a door to fit a frame – he measured the frame with his measures & made the door & it fit.

  7. the imperial inch is an approximation of the the width of the thumb.

    I thought the inch was the length of the thumb from knuckle to tip

    Always been true, though, hasn’t it? All the things that are really necessary to life get done by the non-college educated. They stop doing what they’re doing & you starve in a pool of your own shit. And it’s getting to a point where a lot of them are considering their options.

  9. Isn’t the thumb/stick rule from the Middle East, so to speak? Of course ‘British’ men may well use it.

  10. All the things that are really necessary to life get done by the non-college educated.

    Indeed, who else are we going to call on to pull the liberal universities down and sow the ground with salt?

  11. How nice. Someone has compiled a list of phrases to use to deter time-wasters and morons. Many thanks.

    Winnie the Pooh is already forbidden. Some similarity to a short chubby head-wallah in China, I believe!
    So Tigger-Trigger Warning squared. …are we allowed to refer to white-supremacist maths?

  13. And of course, picnic comes from the French phrase ‘pique nique’ so the Teddy Bears should probably get away with it.

  14. I’m sure they’ll throw Theodore Roosevelt under the bus soon, so Teddy Bears are on notice!

  15. @TG I should think the leader of the Rough Rider’s of San Juan hill has been on the woke shitlist for quite a time. He stood for everything they hate. America for a start.

  16. “In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it.”

    What about real crime, if we eliminate the word stab from the vocabulary will the imported Londoners stop doing it due to not knowing what to call it?
