Been asked on a date by a rather attractive guy and I am feeling torn between saying yes (coz he's hot and I would like to get to know him) and the more logical option of saying no because he is a vegetarian which is kinda a non starter for a majorly carnivorous male like myself.
I know I couldn't give up meat , I love it and tend to have it in every meal!
Is meat eaters dating veggies impossible?
Who believes in the death penalty?
I for one, firmly believe it should brought back in this country. Murderers should be hung, drawn & quartered.
It would save the cost of keeping them alive in a prison cell and free up the prison cells for all the other typr of criminals.

Ivan Massow, the gay rights campaigner hoping to run for mayor of London has announced that he's going to be dad with a lesbian couple he met online.
Has anyone thought about being a dad?
I've reached an age where I kind of think about it more and wonder whether I want to remain childless forever.
Not sure I fancy making a baby with a lesbian couple though.
in the space of a year i can't believe how so much has changed for me!

The WHO reported that “in 2008 1.5 billion adults, 20 and older, were overweight with a Body Mass Index over 25 and that of these 1.5 billion overweight adults, over 200 million men and nearly 300 million women were obese (BMI > 30). Overall, more than one in ten of the world’s adult population was reported to be obese. Once considered a high-income country problem, overweight and obesity are now on the rise in low- and middle- income countries, particularly in urban settings. Close to 35 million overweight children are living in developing countries and 8 million in developed countries.”
The WHO notes that “Overweight and obesity are the fifth leading risk for global deaths. At least 2.8 million adults die each year as a result of being overweight or obese. In addition, 44% of the diabetes burden, 23% of the heart disease burden and between 7% and 41% of certain cancer burdens are attributable to overweight and obesity.”
Since one of the factors that contributes to obesity is the inordinate amount of calories consumed, and given the fact that fats have more than twice as much calories (9 kcal/g) than protein and carbohydrates (4 kcal/g) on a gram basis, could introducing disincentives to fat consumption curb the obesity epidemic?
Should we implement a flat tax on food items high (in excess of 20% of the dailyrequirements) on saturated fats, salt and sugar?
Would this help reduce obesity?

Ok I know this is like a year late but a few guys on here and a few of my mates have hounded me to do it. To be fair I've made up for it as it's probably the worse time of year to do it. I was freezing my balls off.
Post yours or rip me to shreds, it's up to you haha.
Was trawling through the tv channels this morning and ended up watching some rspca show.
There was this mad woman on there who hadn't spayed her cat and was allowing it to indescriminately breed to the point where she had 74 cats!!
Most of which were flea infested, inbred, ferel and extremely undernourished.
Unsurprisingly, the rspca took the cats from her but unfortunately due to health issues, every single one had to be put to sleep. This struck me as incredibly sad.
I love animals and have pedigree cats myself. I can't imagine how anyone can be so irresponsible and stupid.
Who here is an animal lover?
Came across this quiz, I got "YOU'RE ALMOST TOO GOOD AT SEX"

My best mate is a farmers wife in Kent. She sent me this the other day and it made me smile. Liking the humourous take on a serious topic. Are there any countryside aware chaps on here who can associate with this?
Read an article today about some recently completed research into a link between circumcision and autism which I found quite interesting. Any thoughts or personal experiences lads?
I for one haven't been done and don't have ASD but my older brother was done and he does have ASD. Not that I'm suggesting that this is conclusive evidence but it's made me think after reading the article as follows:
New research has found that circumcised boys are more likely than intact boys to develop autism spectrum disorder (ASD) before the age of 10.
The risk is particularly high for infantile autism before the age of five, according to researchers in Copenhagen.
The study, carried out in Denmark, included more than 340,000 boys who were born between 1994 and 2003. The researchers, who followed the boys up to the age of nine, found that almost 5,000 cases of ASD were diagnosed.
The study’s findings showed that, regardless of cultural background, circumcised boys may run a greater risk of developing ASD. The researchers noted they also made an unexpected observation of an increased risk of hyperactivity disorder among circumcised boys in non-Muslim families.
“Our investigation was prompted by the combination of recent animal findings linking a single painful injury to lifelong deficits in stress response and a study showing a strong, positive correlation between a country’s neonatal male circumcision rate and its prevalence of ASD in boys,” noted researcher Morten Frisch, M.D., Ph.D., D.Sc.(Med), of the Statens Serum Institut in Copenhagen.
While it is unacceptable today to circumcise boys without proper pain relief, there is no way to eliminate the pain completely, the researchers said, adding that some boys will endure a lot of pain.
Painful experiences in infants have been shown in both animal and human studies to be associated with long-term alterations in pain perception, a characteristic often encountered among children with ASD, the researchers said.
“Possible mechanisms linking early life pain and stress to an increased risk of neurodevelopmental, behavioral, or psychological problems in later life remain incompletely conceptualized,” said Frisch.
“Given the widespread practice of non-therapeutic circumcision in infancy and childhood around the world, our findings should prompt other researchers to examine the possibility that circumcision trauma in infancy or early childhood might carry an increased risk of serious neurodevelopmental and psychological consequences.”
The study was published in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine.
Cowards shooting dead a policeman who lay injured.
The newspaper and TV reporters covering the atrocity - carried out apparently to avenge a long dead ‘prophet’ who has become prone to the gags of mickey-takers and critics due to the absurdities of his followers - all emphasise the point that the right to free speech is not negotiable, and is the very essence of democracy.
And they are right of course. Ridiculous people and ridiculous ideas inevitably attract ridicule. And the most absurd idea still being bandied about in the 21st century as an answer to modern day capitalism and its problems is religion. Despite the claims from its various apologists of their moral superiority, and the insistence that they should be accepted, unchallenged and unquestioned, as examples of how we are to live our lives, they are, in fact, the socially useless remnants of a long-gone world, a world of ancient social conditions and ideas, mass ignorance and superstition. And far from providing answers to today’s problems they have nothing say, other than to tell us to put our faith in the imaginary gods and their magical powers, of an ancient era.
The fact that believers in such gods obviously consider their deities to be so weak and helpless, however, as to need their critics to be silenced by Kalashnikovs says as much about the god’s impotence as does any Charlie Hebdo cartoon.
And, while it seems clear that the intention of the attackers was to silence the critics, this has backfired. Already gatherings of outraged people protesting at the barbarity are taking place all over Europe. More moderate Muslims too, this time more than ever before, are expressing their outrage.
‘Everyone should be offended three times a week’ someone once said, ‘and twice on Sundays’. And that seems about right. There’s nothing like a bit straight talking, and a bit of offence to remind us that not everyone shares the same views. And while believers in ancient myths have every right to feel offended that their ideas are sometimes ridiculed, the rest of us reserve the right to be equally offended at religious stupidity and barbarity.
