Everyone lives two lives.

The one those closest to them see, and the one the rest of the World sees.

Everyone.

Queen, Genesis Michael Jackson and Van Morison are all vastly over-rated by people with no personal taste in music whatsoever. They are just popular with those who find it easier to go with the flow than to choose their own particular favourite. Or, worse, in Van Morison's case, liked by middle class, middle aged, trendy Guardian readers.

I am well over middle age.

From 5-10, anybody who thinks they are a 0-5 is dangerously unaware of their own personality.

We have been evolutionally shaped into favouring our own tribe.

I should imagine that is a very unpopular opinion.

- Adam Johnson's 15-year old victim bears part of the responsibility for what happened to her.
- 'People of colour' posting racist abuse about white people on Twitter should face the same criticism from the British press that Jo Marney received.
- Advertisers over-represent/promote interracial relationships.
- Trump > BBC/The Guardian/Sky
Totally agree on all points.

my Main gripe here is the interracial families though.
Mum is black, dad is white and the kid is Chinese or something.

WTF is that all about..what's wrong with advertising to the people who are actually watching, and not pushing some strange ideals on us.

I'd imagine Hitler was in the 0-5 crowd.

The spam we get here on PH is quite amusing and might be of use to someone.

(1) Democracy is undoubtedly the least worst system of government we've come up with, but, damn me, it's still dangerously ste because the public's judgement is generally shocking.

(2) We should be enormously grateful to anyone who is prepared to enter politics seriously. I can't think of a more thankless task.

(3) The two great Prime Ministers of the second half of the 20th century were Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair. This opinion will get you heckled by 99.5% of the British voting population. See point (1).

(4) Football is pants.

Most of the Mrs Thatcher lovers werent even born when she was in power, never lived under her rule and yet still think she was some kind of saviour.

Both of those, but more so -
ADHD is due to feckless parents deserting their child in front of a flashing flickering noisy screen rather than socialising them.
No such thing as dyslexia - you're thick and/or lazy.

Nothing wrong with most religions (that's the unpopular opinion), they are man made constructs like football or tiddlywinks misappropriated or deliberately misrepresented to justify wars that are nearly always about land or resources, occasionally political ideologies but quoted by snorting teenagers and internet dwellers as living, breathing entities of evil in themselves.

Voting, conceiving children, and freedom of speech should be means tested, knowledge based tests required before undertaking any of these inalienable rights.

Freedom of speech is over rated as is democracy.

I don't care if there are government conspiracies, there should be, the public don't need to know what's going on, they're mainly idiots.
