• My father: “Women like you and your mother scare the **** out of men.”

    Scary and proud

    He is married to a woman who likes to have a nice clean, tidy house full of wee ornaments. And they are very happy.

  • The Presidents club was for the “masters of the universe” the “Alpha males” the “men of influence” or whatever phish they believed in to maintain their sense of entitlement.

    Surely you can see that power gradient plays a part in how it is perceived and the reaction to it middle aged men of a certain place in the social ladder have a real blind…[Read more]

  • It has been revealed that new England women’s head coach Phil Neville apparently made sexist remarks on social media a couple years ago and now they are coming back to haunt him.

    In tweets made on twitter he said that women would be too “busy making breakfast/getting kids ready”

    and joked he had “just battered the wife”.

    Is Phil Neville sexist?…[Read more]

  • SoccerGal replied to the topic Milk causing early puberty? in the forum Health 4 months ago

    Couldn’t open the link but is it based on American systems? They farm dairy very differently to the UK (and europe) and use hormones to produce milk rather than the cow having a calf. Their way is illegal here so no hormones in British (and European) dairy products.

    Our milk is sampled daily, if there is anything in there that shouldn’t be it all…

    Maybe not….

    More research is needed. I have long wondered if there is a link between formula and early puberty but it does not seem the case, through the effect on childhood obesity is there and that in itself can affect puberty…. Anyway more research is needed.

  • Very funny. Although I have to say I’d take winning a cup plus relegation any day of the week.

  • For those who like a superstitious punt, 5 years ago Wigan Athletic beat Bournemouth after a replay in the third round. We then went on to beat Man City and win it. Last night, did the same again against Bournemouth (third round after a replay), but even more convincingly. So, place your bets.

    Hammers fans – be worried, very worried.

  • I woke up this morning with really bad ball of foot pain

    I have had this twice in my life here is my story…

    First time was caused by walking around for ages in winter at night on ice in cheap ordinary shoes. The BAD pain lasted 2-3 months then gradually went away

    Second time was caused by wearing cheap shoes which had metal studs coming…[Read more]

  • I get numbness in some standard trainers, running and cross training etc, if I then do a quad stretch holding my foot a satisfying crunch occurs things settle down. I don’t think my feet like the fixed position/forced break over of that sort of trainer and found I am much better with something more minimalist (I use merell bare access), I have…[Read more]

  • SoccerGal changed their profile picture 4 months, 1 week ago

  • Did you not try taking them back to the place you got them from (and which you say asked for them back)?

    @sista When I got injured, I took a cab to a Minor Injuries Unit, which was closed temporarily. The driver took me to the hospital with A&E instead. I drove today to a hospital nearby just to find ruins – it was demolished, apparently! So I…[Read more]

  • @kelly Nah, they seemed pretty standard. I was asked to return them regardless as it made sense to me. I really don’t have a use for them. Well, apart from the fact that the scan last month revealed that I have broken my ankle before (fully healed up by now, but there’s a chip floating around) and I am still not sure how that happened.

    There’s…[Read more]

  • I was given a pair of crutches a wee while ago when I sprained my both ankles. They weren’t brand new, but in more than decent nick. Needless to say, they were super handy since I didn’t leave home for a week and was getting a cabin fever.

    I was asked to return them as they cost a fair bit. It all makes sense – I am not going to use them anyway…[Read more]
