Blood sport, I agree with ban.
I do not agree with ban (for whatever reason)

I've never hunted but have no desire to stop it. Far more animal suffering happens in getting bargain priced meat and eggs onto the supermarket shelves each day than in hunting in a year.
And if hunting goes which is next, no more lamping or snaring rabbits for the pot? or catching fish or stalking deer?
Lots more unpleasant minorities are in politics but we don't ban them!
If it got ridiculous i'd just leave the country.
... getting involved again ...
just wait until the new compulsory ID cards are introduced
not to mention the sea angling permit
by the way does anyone remember the dog license ?
it proved so ineffective that it was scrapped but now they want to ban dogs from doing ....well..... Doggy things
The world is slowly going mad IMHO
would a government ban on foxes raiding chicken coops be a potential solution??
If I want something blunt I use a spoon
I dont think i would need a great excuse to move to South Africa, its a second home to me afterall. Perhaps i should go on "holiday" and never return. Like hell anyone could find someone weho doesnt want to be found in Neiwoudtville (its in the middle of no-where BTW, but absolutely stunning nonetheless)

Well, every bit of plastic in my wallet currently has an edge quite good enough for things other than the intended purpose! They conifiscate your nail scisors at the airport but leave your credit cards and keys :?:Originally Posted by MagiKelly

How to explain how wrong you are, without writing an essay :rolmao:Originally Posted by Jake Rollnick
We are genetically programmed with fear as a large part of our make up ... it's an evolutionary inheritance and was once, as you put it a major role player ... infact THE major role player as it took the lions share of our awareness... that genetic structure for fear is still there ... and so is the fear ... just because it doesn't take a frontal position in our awareness .. doesn't mean it isn't there.
We have cunningly renamed it neurosis, stress, anxiety ...... We don't need the fear quite as much yet it still exists and yet we make a lot of effort to deny our fears to ourselves ... yet within our society we feed off fear, we have created a society with fear, all be it under it's new titles, it still has the same physiological effect of stimulating our bodies with epinephrines ... we create things to fear ... that is why we make and watch scary movies .. and why some people read the Daily Mail (as a prime example), and other newspapers, or at least the tabloids, because they sell, primarily, by feeding the public their fears, fears that are hungry for stimulus. I'm not to sure whether the need for fear is physiological or psychological... but it definitely affects both aspects of us ... perhaps it's both
Modern society isn't exactly driven by fear, but rather the need to distract ourselves from our fears ... so that we don't spend too much time contemplating the conflict in us, most notably the Primary Neurosis. Yet the fears still exist under the new names of stress and anxiety .. and we have created our modern world to contain lots of stress and anxiety, we have, to all intents and purpose, built our modern society to contain stress and anxiety, it was a subconscious choice.
we feed our fears within our subconscious at the same time as trying to deny them from our consciousness
go figure :?:
