    I am with you Viper in that there are some boring threads on NSC. The difference is I don't go on them.....because they are boring.

    The Word Association Game thread is terribly tedious, so I give it a swerve. I have never posted on it. Maybe I should keep posting on it to say how much I find it boring?
    I have the viper (God, what a self-aggrandizing prick of a user name) on ignore. Just thought I mention that.

      I am pleased you did. As if you hadn't I wouldn't have googled self-aggrandizing.

      What a great term. In my vault for future reference.

      This has probably already been mentioned on this Trump thread (it is rather a long thread, and rightfully so)

      I have to agree with Nate White on why the British don't like Trump.

      https://bergensia.com/someone-asked-...-donald-trump/

      Copied below.

      Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem.

      For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility, no honour and no grace Ė all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed.

      So for us, the stark contrast does rather throw Trumpís limitations into embarrassingly sharp relief.

      Plus, we like a laugh. And while Trump may be laughable, he has never once said anything wry, witty or even faintly amusing Ė not once, ever.

      I donít say that rhetorically, I mean it quite literally: not once, not ever. And that fact is particularly disturbing to the British sensibility Ė for us, to lack humour is almost inhuman.

      But with Trump, itís a fact. He doesnít even seem to understand what a joke is Ė his idea of a joke is a crass comment, an illiterate insult, a casual act of cruelty.

      Trump is a troll. And like all trolls, he is never funny and he never laughs; he only crows or jeers.

      And scarily, he doesnít just talk in crude, witless insults Ė he actually thinks in them. His mind is a simple bot-like algorithm of petty prejudices and knee-jerk nastiness.

      There is never any under-layer of irony, complexity, nuance or depth. Itís all surface.

      Some Americans might see this as refreshingly upfront.

      Well, we donít. We see it as having no inner world, no soul.

      And in Britain, we traditionally side with David, not Goliath. All our heroes are plucky underdogs: Robin Hood, Dick Whittington, Oliver Twist.

      Trump is neither plucky nor an underdog. He is the exact opposite of that.

      Heís not even a spoiled rich-boy or a greedy fat-cat.

      Heís more a fat white slug. A Jabba the Hutt of privilege.

      And worse, he is that most unforgivable of all things to the British: a bully.

      That is, except when he is among bullies; then he suddenly transforms into a sniveling sidekick instead.



      It's true. When has he ever said something genuinely humorous? When has he ever admitted making an error or even misunderstanding something?

      Cheers mate. We're still on lockdown until June 15 but NYC is slowly returning to normal - whatever that is these days. What's it like out West ? I'm wondering how long it'll be before they resume flights to the UK, I'm guessing it'll be a while
      Beaches opened over the last few days but masks still everywhere. There is new dilemma of a huge surge of people hitting every store, public walkway, gas station or anything that would have not even raised an eyebrow of interest in the past. Regarding the flights home, we (family) are fast approaching our second round of long time scheduled trips home being canceled. First ones were in March, next ones were when school gets out here in 3 weeks, Ce La Vie. Time to see some of the checklist states via a road trip I guess.

      Bit rich all that considering our current government and the shit show we've been through the last few years. And Im pretty sure it's not just the British who don't have time for Trump. How high is his pedestal? I wonder what European folk living in holiday destinations frequented by cheap British holidaymakers would have to say about the opening line and paragraph
