[Error: unknown template qotd]I used to play double bass and keyboard, but I don't play either now.

I did take up guitar last year, but despite buying a kids sized one, I still can't reach all the finger positions because I have itty bitty hands...

...So I stopped playing :(

BTW - The reason I've not been posting is because every time I log in there's some maintenance thing happening :(

[Error: unknown template qotd]I would have been in my physics class at the time it happened.

But since technology was somewhat different back then, I didn't find out until I was home from school.

No-one had a phone capable of checking the news, and if the teachers knew something was happening, they didn't let us know about it.

I got in from school as usual, and flung off my backpack...Both my parents were out, and I did my usual - sit down and catch up on the news.

I thought it was a film at first...some sort of disaster movie, and then I realised it had really happened. I think I sat there for hours because I just couldn't believe what I was seeing. I was still sitting with my coat on when my parents came in several hours later - they would have been home sooner, but they were watching what was happening too.

I had friends on holiday in New York at the time, and thankfully they'd chosen to visit the towers the day before.

I didn't personally know anyone that died that day,  but I know at least one person that's probably dead due to the 'war on terror' that's followed.

I studied Social Sciences, concentrating more on Politics and History.

Loved the course, but it's probably about the worst one for getting you a job these days.

Currently unemployed.

I have no career.

I haven't really found "too cold" yet...lowest I've felt is about -18C, and I didn't honestly find it any colder than -7 or -8

Hmm...at home nowhere beats Glasgow...it just rocks!!  It has the best shops and fantastic restaurants, tons of museums and sports places loads of history and a million quirks and I just love it to pieces. Sure it isn't as pretty as Edinburgh, but Glasgow Smiles Better :D

As for abroad, My fave places have been Barcelona and Salzburg which are both amazing, but totally different from each other. Salzburg is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. It's more like a town than a city, with great shops, great food and the view from that Fortress, I don't think that can be beat.

Barcelona on the otherhand is huge. It's busy, it's noisy, it's so easy to get lost in, and I love it for that...you never know what you're going to find. The Ramblas is just fantastic to walk down, and I love Park Guell, and anything Gaudi really. Most amazing thing was this waiter at Cafe Italianos on the Ramblas...We went there for one drink only, the second time we visited Barcelona, and returned a year and a half later as the service was great, and the waiter actually remembered our drinks order, which is amazing!!! He came out, looked at us in turn and told us what he knew we'd order!!!

In one word: Yes!

This world can only support us for so long, and if we're lucky enough to be here in the distant future, we'll need to up sticks and leave, lol!

Big, minimalist and modern, but out in the countryside, and with one really cluttered room just because XD

In short? Nope.

For one, we're not causing global warming, only accelerating it.

And for as long as we continue to have big polluting factories belching out all kinds of nasty stuff, and for as long we allow nuclear power plants to expel radioactive coolants into our rivers and oceans...I don't think it'll matter how many plastic bags or loafs of bread we waste.

I have boycotted foie gras because it don't want to think about a poor animal getting a pneumatic drill of sorts getting stuck into and switched on while the bird it still alive

I have also in the past boycotted chocolate bars and other junk foods because of their advertising campaigns.

I think it depends...if they're under the age of legal consent, then yes, the parents should know. But then they might go off and have unprotected sex.

And f the teen is over the age of consent then the parents should not be informed.

Personally I don't think young teens should ever be given birth control pills...they're still going through puberty, and those pills really muck up hormone levels.

I support Capital punishment, but only for the likes of serial killers whose guilt is 100% certain as mistakes have been made in the past. However I would not proscribe the death penalty for certain terrorists as it would make them martyrs to their cause.

Why do I believe some killers should be put to death? Well, why should we have to pay for them to live in a cushy cell with X-Boxes and free meals for life? The money would be put to far better use being given  to charity, or being cut off taxes that us law abiding citizens have to pay.

I'm not that concerned as i have a theory...

I believe all we're doing is marginally increasing the warming of the planet...enough so that we've noticed we're causing part of it, but that most of it is occurring naturally.

This warming is leading to a lot of ice at both poles melting, and I think eventually this level of cold water constantly flowing into the North Atlantic will stop the Gulf Stream.

Once the Gulf stream stops, this will send Northern Europe and part of North America into a new glacial stadial.

We already know we're living in an inter-glacial period of a massive ice age - if it weren't an ice age, there would be no ice at the poles and there'd be more water and less land.

At the end of the day, while what will happen will be bad, it would be unavoidable anyway, so it's best to just get one with life and deal with it if and when it happens

Living on the very edge of a big conurbation, I currently live in neither.

We actually looked at google maps, and realised that for 50 miles south of our house, there was literally nothing but towns...no gaps other than for rivers...And in the other direction, there is not a house between here and Russia...

Civilisation literally stops 60 yards away where there is a farm, and from then on all the way up through Scotland, over the north sea and the north pole to Russia, there is nothing but the odd farm house, lol!

Personally I hate living between the two...it's awful...It's like the worst of both - no services, but you get heavy traffic and the noise and air pollution, and also small-minded locals that can't see beyond two miles in any direction. We also get suburban levels of crime, and inflated tourist prices (which locals also pay contrary to what some may think) but don't get any real perks ourselves.

Those that live in towns and cities have all the negatives, but have the plusses of jobs, infrastructure, services, shops etc.
Those that live in the countryside also have negatives, but have a close-knit community and all the advantages of that, plus their village's identity is secure. They have low crime, no pollution etc.

Personally, I'm at my happiest when either right in the countryside visiting a small village, out for a sail or a walk, or at the other end of the spectrum somewhere in Glasgow city centre.

They can take suburbia and shove it where the sun don't shine if you ask me.

Everyone who ever bullied me at school...they badly damaged me socially, and that's why I don't go out now and why I trust no-one. I can't stand to be in a crowd because I'm always paranoid, expecting someone to have a go at me for no reason. And every time I opened my mouth at school the bullies told me to 'shut it', so now if I'm in unfamiliar company, I'm virtually mute.
