    The Internet is in itself, driven by a conspiracy-engine which seemingly converts every search for factual data to a set of phrases which only supplies the questioner with reams of misinformation or in most cases….porn…

  2. Laripu says:

    M27Holts, not necessarily porn… sometimes it’s just lingerie ads. 😉 😀

  3. arbeyu says:

    Heh heh heh! Nice one!

  4. Patrick says:

    I’m thinking of using “Random Oldie” as my Twitter bio.

  5. M27Holts says:

    When I was a lad, before the internet. My mother was always perplexed when her mail order catalogue’s would mysteriously flop open on the ladies lingerie and bra’s and knickers section….

  6. Oozoid says:

    An interesting Twitter thread! There’s a first time for everything.

  7. Ooxoid says:

    M27… One day when I was a youngster my mother – enraged by something I had or had not done – said she knew all about my stash of ‘filth’ and that I was destined for Hell. In those days kids were trained to ‘respect thy mother and thy father’ (no matter how they might abuse you) so I did not question her judgement. But I was baffled. Around that time I had taken to transcribing the lyrics to songs I enjoyed. The only potentially offensive part of my collection were the lyrics to ‘The Boxer’. (But, in hindsight, my mother was right about me and where I would wind up.)

  8. That guy over there says:

    M27Holts Glad to see that rule 34 is still in operation. Otherwise I’d have to check the weather forecast for Hell for unexpected frost… 😀

  9. Laripu says:

    Ooxoid, my mother also found lyrics I had written, a payday version of Blowing in the Wind. I was 11, and the new lyrics were sightly obscene in an 11-year-old way. She wasn’t happy, but I wasn’t threatened with hell, because Jews don’t talk that way. She should have encouraged me: Weird Al Yankovic did very well screwing with other people’s songs.

    One I like by him:

    I think I prefer the original.

    In my post above that should have been “parody” not “payday”. I really hate autocorrect.

  12. Laripu says:

    And that was me, not anonymous.

  13. M27Holts says:

    By the time I reached 14/15 I had aquired a VHS video machine and the glaswegian geezer who ran the local off licence had a VHS rental sideline and he supplied us with the proper porn and video nasties (from under the counter) plus beer & cider….he had a lot of dodgy contacts from his home city…never did me any harm…

    Fellow GentleBeings
    It is as always a ray of rainbow sherbet to read the comments after a few days absence. However I may (for once) have a contribution to make on the subject at hand.
    About six months ago I was introduced to a source of modern “underwear catalogues”. The website is the “feral irishman” and the highlights are the regular “Friday night femme fatales”.
    Nothing but good old fashioned young Ladies, apologies that I am unaware of female friendly version yet.

    jb: Thanks for your link to “the original”, but when I clicked on it, I was instructed to verify my age (I am over 80, btw!) by a fairly cumbersome process. But, when I went directly to YouTube, I found several versions of the song (“Blurred Lines”), some showing the lyrics clearly on screen, without any age challenge!

    Disclaimer: I have carefully proofread the above and found no annoying spellcheck or autocorrect alterations. I hope it stays that way after submission.

  16. M27Holts says:

    I suspect that you found thst site whilst looking for “Large Jugs” or perhaps “Impressive Knockers” if you needed some new door furniture?

  17. jb says:

    Um, there’s a reason for the age challenge…

  18. Deimos says:

    Not sure if any comments are aimed at me but I discovered feral irishman site when
    Looking into the wonderful world of trumpian conspiracy theories.
    A good place to start if you want an overview of American right wing lite on the net is the bayou renaissance man. It helps fairly normal brits to understand what happens on the right hand side of the of the current American civil war lite situation. The other side of coin was easier to research ( the sinister side) but harder to understand as they use WAY too many acronyms.
    As an outsider I love researching American current politics, especially trying to find a corresponding situation in history to run a comparison. My only current model involves the second English civil war (the Charles I VS Cromwell war).

  19. M27Holts says:

    Like I have said before my experience of american culture was betwixt 1998-1999 when I was working as an IT consultant in the northern states. But on my tour of the south the ignorance of the average was eye-opening…
