I received a death threat today... by raistlin

... and it wasn't from any forum, motoring or otherwise ;)

We had no choice but to remand a rather small 11 year old boy into the care of the local authority today.

As I made the pronouncement, he raised himself to his full 3ft nowt, brought his right hand above his head in standard "gangsta" allusion to a gun, pointed at the Bench, and said, in a small, waif-like voice, "You is all dead... innit"

Closely followed by a surprised yelp, as the unimpressed dock officer grabbed his arm and frog marched him out of the dock :lol:

Even his mother's otherwise stony face creased into a smile.

Thing is, not sure I would see the funny side....because if this is how he is now...just give him five years and you are in danger of finding his early efforts are simply shades of things to come... sadly. :(

I hope "it" gets some sort of psychological help, perhaps a frontal lobotomy at age 11 yrs 6 months, no, couldn't be that wicked. I hope he gets the help he so obviously needs.

In my experience, 90% + grow out of it Mick. This particular lad, when stripped of his "attitude" is one screwed up, vulnerable, frightened kiddy and it's to be hoped that a stable regime in local authority care, followed by a good set of foster parents will start the process of helping him cope with a role in society.

I know what you mean Carl but it really was so funny to see, even when you consider that his behaviour at the moment could reasonably be compared to that of an unsocialized puppy.

Strange, I seem to remember saying a similar thing myself some time ago only to be berated by your good self for thinking that way. . .

Think you imagined that Basil...I don't berate peeps on this forum..:) my point is NOT that he will, inevitably, turn out to be a bad'un but that the temptation is to be indulgent and say, aw isn't he cute etc...because at his age and size, yes, it is funny and a ridiculous sight...but it won't be when he is twenty. Kids need to learn what is appropriate when they are kids, rather than later through the penal system.:)Which has been a pretty consistent point of view I have held ever since I went into teaching. Anyway, it sounds like this little chappie might just have a chance now to do that kind of learning thanks to Paul..:)

Don't think so - I have taken all my medication ;) It was on a certain other 75 site or possibly on the Rover site that Paul used to run (whatever happened to that - did it die a death of apathy?). Believe at the time you had left teaching and were working as some kind of mentor to 'troubled youngsters' ???

Thank God that in our PC, laissez faire, health & safety vectored UK, such unconstructive remarks as, 'shoot em, in front of their cro-magnon parents', are frowned upon. Also rest in mind that freedom of expression and unbounded liberalisation permits retorts such as 'You is all dead innit', accompanied with the gentle art of mime.

So in place of strife, lets give these hapless adolescents a 36 month incentivised course in citizenship. By repatriating the population of the 'Isle of Wight' to 200 Persimmon estates outside Burnley, we could utilise the noble seat of Lord Tennyson as an exclusive 36" and under 'centre de rapatriement de blouson noir'.

Bury a million Euros in Blackgang Chine, and 500 AK47's (complete with 2 million rounds) somewhere off Newport. Issue everyone with a 'Blackberry' and limitless texts. Funtime Playstation Cafes could provide subliminal encouragement via games such as 'Manhunt', 'Resident Evil 5', and 'Grand Theft Auto'.

After a year an unarmed, unescorted Committee, comprising Diane Abbott, Harriet Harman. Tessa Jowel, Caroline Flint and led by Lord Oakshott visit to review progress.

Seminars they arrange will include Morris dancing, basket weaving, needlework, and what do with a million Euro's in 2015.

To ensure immediate success at meetings, our new friend's, Nicky Teacosy and Gruppenmutter Merkel are retained as consultants.

Sponsors include 'Mothercare' (or similar to that spelling), RBS, Lloyds TSB and Wonga.com ...

(extra ammunition, if needed kindly donated by J. Clarkson esq)

(Sorry I'm just sick and tired of these sprogling gits and the 'gently, gently' brigade et al - remember the summer - and how dare they threaten the Wizard of Fordhouse ?)

Planet's overpopulated - shoot the little blighter

Overpopulation is rapidly becoming a concern. A return to trench warfare is sure to be in discussion somewhere. Perhaps someone is already working on bigger dinner trees.
|Up to 1200AD less than 0.5 billion humans..for centuries on end..
1800 population 1 billion.
1927 population 2 billion
1960 population 3 billion
1974 population 4 billion
1987 population 5 billion
1999 population 6 billion
present day = 7 billion
2050 = 9 billion. Food supply capability maxed out.

The little chap is lucky to receive help. In 2050 he'll go for processing as pie filling (probably for pies on sale at the Coliseum/Colloseum).

Birth control in the water supply, means tested relief for conscriptive parenting? Sounds Orwellian, yes probably, but in my lifetime the world population has risen by 300%. Finite resources, will inevitably sound the curfew for direct action. Problem is no-one is strong enough to even admit it's a problem, although they clamour for climate control. Add robotic engineering technology, improved health regimes etc and in a politically correct but overtly congested world, the future seems mathematically unviable.

And I thought I was alone on this perception of the world today?
The simple (but complex) answer to global warming etc.: Stop breeding!

That and the more shiversome concept of removing aids to longevity... expect government sponsored fag adverts anytime, a complete u-turn on health and safety and pie fillings containing naughty children.

Mathematically unviable indeed. We probably need to start watching our backs. Expect the knock on the door from the Euthanasia Enforcement Team.

I sometimes have dark thoughts these days over the beginning of a 'Logan's Run' paradigm, as resentment creates rifts between the generations.

The school leavers of today and the next decade of successors will I fear translate, the disposition of their atrophy in revenge upon the perceived wealth and ease of my generations possessions and comfort.

I have no children, it was a deliberate act. I didn't feel I wanted to commit to the cost on one hand, whilst increasing the world's consumptive problems on another.

Watch for even more legislative changes as a corollary to one end of the curve rising, as the other diminishes; who's going to be working to pay the pensions of those queuing up to get them? Two and two will be politically expressed as equalling three.

I've always thought we had the equation the wrong way round. The population should have been reduced by incentivising the childless to increase, instead of state sponsored propogation through 'child benefit payments'.

Throughout an academically expansive life I've taken considerable criticism on this subject. I now live to find my conclusions reinforced, manifest everywhere in the sad decline the UK's exponentially inflicted inhabitants have imposed.

Will admit Paul my first thought was that in later years he would end up being a drain on Society.

Perhaps it was the parents (or should that be singular) who should be in the dock.

China was criticised when they made the law of 'only one child' yet in most other countries people can breed as they want.

In this country each one that pops out gets benefits and some use children as a means of 'getting a place' and then as cash cows to support them not working.

There are families where three generations have not worked. This must affect their behaviour.

I hope that your actions do mean that this kid will become a beneficial member of society.
