Who wants to come and have a bbq?
I logged on with an intention and when I forgot I just posted this.
The question I wanted to ask was:
Was that really the last zonino? and if so can Bamos ust actually not be wet and put another one on. thanks.
quintessentially British, this weather is killing me.
To be fair it's just so suffocating in my lounge. The reason being our houses are built more for cold weather and don't accomodate a free flow of air as much as houses in warmer climates. I went to Sainsbury's today, it was a refreshing treat.
my flat seems to have been built for the Mediterranean, so that it's pleasantly cool in this kind of weather and utterly freezing from October to March.
Also, everyone that can't take a day or two of 30C weather needs to MTFU massively, or move to Scotland or something.
today has been great!
were the victims in on the joke?
the population density would be very unreasonable.
the are plenty of witnesses, me being one of them.
go back to brighton matt if you're not already there. twat.
it was upsetting and i believe it to be cyber bullying.
I was very very drunk, I think that's the night I fell asleep on tinychat for hours.
If I was mistaken and he wasn't then it was a mistake and very silly, but if he was then well - i don't care much....the guy was a knob.
nobody mentioned nigeria. you're a racist.
completely side stepping the facts. This is actually a very serious thing you're pinning on me and I'm not happy to sit back and watch you turn me into someone I'm not.
You're a malicious wanker who needs to pipe down and stop being an utter cunt to me every time I speak. Grow a spine and do something with your evening (and probably your life) rather than getting other people down.
your guard was down, you revealed too much. however, proceeding to lie about the event is pretty sickening. if you feel bad then it's your own fault.
Chris is a pretty decent bloke.
a lot of people on here find it their sole aim to persecute me at every angle. I mean, this is a thread about a BBQ for crying out loud. I'm not trying to hurt anyone or say anything bad and then all of a sudden this all happens.
I may have been a naive child on here 5 or 6 years ago, but bloody hell give me a break for once.
Maybe it's because they know they can get away with digs like this on the internet, their natural domain, wheras in the real world they wouldn't stand a chance because really they're weak and pathetic people. Fair enough to them though, they want to try and get some kind of satisfaction in life and 'achieve' something but this is just a poor attempt at being the bigger person.
Go save some wildlife or a community much worse off than you or something.
this happened less then a year ago
having a go at people for being racist. what would you do in real life? would you beat me up? like a tough guy.
and as yesiamaduck mentioned, this was a recent event, certainly not '5 or 6 years ago', as if that would matter anyway. you've repeatedly demonstrated a willingness to lie in order to worm your way out of this. disgusting.
I was very drunk....very very drunk so memory isn't a great thing.....but what I remember is the guy saying something about him being from Nigeria. I also remember him being an annoying knob. I remember telling him to 'go back to Nigeria' because I genuinely thought that's where he was from, because that's what I thought he said.
If he wasn't then as I said above, it was a very 'very silly' mistake and could have offended some people, for which I'm extrememly sorry. I am sorry if that was the case, please understand that I'm not actually a racist and would not knowingly want to upset anyone through any racist comments.
If I was in-fact wrong, please forgive me.
I have to make it clear
I was once accidently racist too, in a Greggs Bakery. I sucked it up, apologised publicly, and entered re-hab. I recommend the same for you.
'black being quiet'.
you think might be fun. Now run along and shit your pants over something worthwhile.
which confused me at first because in england when you fire up the bbq it's like a fucking ceremony. seeing people fire theirs up at 6pm on a regular monday to grill a few sausages was like buying yourself a birthday cake for a snack.
but i'm in favour of it. bbqed meat tastes incredible.
my yank family in so cali have a bar with a fridge full of glass bottles of root beer and FRUIT cream sodas with a giant BBQ in-built to the bar and they did these huge steaks on it.
america is better in every way.
but then I hear you are a racist now, should we all be racist now?
wtf is all this about? I didn't know you were that way inclined, or was it all just a misunderstanding/mistake?
I'm not a racist
By all accounts I was not there.
But I know Chris and he can be, by all accounts a bit clumsy when it comes to lashing out when angry/pissed and a bit of an idiot (as we can all be guilty for when it comes to the internet).
I really do think this has been blown out of proportion though, and if there was other evidence to back up these allegations then I wouldn't be inclined to stick up for someone with racist principles.
In other news halloumi cheese is amazing done on the BBQ. Mmmmmmm, halloumi.
Just like I was a bit clumsy when I stabbed someone 22 times, partially cremated them and buried them in the garden.
that's a horrible thing even if you did make that up. You really have just said the wrong thing to the wrong person. wanker.
this is pretty dumb, even for you
but joke or not, still not funny
if embrassing myself is the cost of this thread, then so be it.
now that's embarrassing.
this thread is embarrassing. On so many levels.
no but seriously, i have literally no idea how a person can say something like that without some kind of underlying prejudice. at best he was choosing to use racism as a means to hurt the poor kid.
it wasn't exactly an isolated comment either, but it was the strongest thing that he said. there was a certain level of bigotry running throughout the conversation. and i will never see drunkenness as an excuse.
but is that a smart way to deal with racism? dismiss it as an 'off day'? i would argue that most people never do anything as nasty as that, although it seems to me that i see this as a more serious issue than others.
there were several others present, and many of them have come out on my side of the argument in the past.
racism is far, far more serious than calling someone fat/ugly fuck
context is very important. in this case: history.
so will just ask you to take the time to examine some of history's atrocities, and see if flab was the driving force behind them, or race.
as long as this isn't some "bring your own food" bullshit.
I'll bring me and a bottle of wine. This is YOUR BBQ.
totally misread thread. what's going on up there /\
COVER YOUR EYES.
but now I can't see where I'm urinating.
Shall I call it zoninQ
no... hang on.
That's great.......I'll genuinely throw a DiS BBQ, in August when I move into my new house. The garden is bigger than the windmill and it's beer garden soo
I make a lovely potato salad
Halloumi on a BBQ FTW
I prefer the ones with mashed up veg in a breadcrumb coating, but I guess that they don't really hot together well on the grill.
You're not invited. Sorry.
Every barbecue needs a lovely potato salad and some halloumi.
Yeah a bit of potato salad. I'm just a bit nervous about someone getting too excited about potato salad and describing it as "lovely". Know what I mean.
If she'd said "adequate" or "perfunctory" or something I would have been "ok that's cool, see you there." but she went with "lovely" and alarm bells went off.
But I guess it's not my BBQ .
Seriously, its the best. No offence marilyn, I'm sure that yours is good.
But would you mind finding something else to do that day? I think marilyninthesky is free. Maybe you could hook up? I hear she makes a lovely potato salad.
A BBQ is an event, it isn't all just about the meat. Its about a man sweating and cursing as the thing doesn't light. Its about rain just as the food is ready, AND ITS ABOUT MY MARILYN AND MY MUM'S POTATO SALAD. You don't have to have any, thats fine, but don't tell me what I can or can't eat whilst I'm there. I'm probs going to have some lettuce on my burger as well. OM NOM NOM
Just turn up, give her your internet name, she'll know what to do.
sorry we won't see you at the bbq :(
i've experienced racism before (nothing too extreme, thankfully). this sort of thing needs to be called out at the earliest possible moment. acceptance is really just as bad.
having said that, i would have dropped this ages ago if chris hadn't been so unrepentant.
No one cares other than you and yesiamaduck who has proven to be a bit of a chris_is_cool hater.
How do you even know this happened? Were you there? If so, call him out at the time, if you feel the need, and don't bring it up months later. Its got fuck all to do with this thread and is just about you being a fucking child.
i dunno, i guess i find it weird to even converse with people like that, and have others on here be willing to ignore it.
although as i mentioned up there^, i think i'm more disgusted by this than many people in this thread, so perhaps it's my own problem.
Because "disgusted" seems a bit strong.
You're distracting me from thoughts of meat, halloumi and lovely potato salad.
but regularly bringing it up in threads months/years later when you know exactly what chris's reaction will be (to repeat that he was drunk, and use that as reason to not be able to apologise/admit it happened) is pointless, and just makes you look like a bit of a whiney bully.
basically, UR BOATH IN DA WRONG.
I do, however, think that it sounds like you said something MASSIVELY idiotic.
although it sounds like you were probably drunk at the time, that really doesn't excuse your behaviour. so, it would be good if you apologised for it.
but then again, who do you apologise to? the guy was some tinychat troll, so you're never gonna find him again, and people repeatedly bringing it up on here when they've been through it with you before is really pointless.
best thing to do would be to prove to tha haterz that you've learned from this and want to move on.
if it takes an apology to achieve that, then a sincere apology to the people who were upset by your comment would perhaps be a good idea.
and if it makes you feel any better my girlfriend is Irish, one of my closes mates at uni (who I'm moving in with in 5 weeks) is Ugandan and my favourite customer to speak to at work is a little Indian fellow from Gujarat.
However I would like to register my amusement at .'little Indian fellow'.
but I'm loving the "my best mate is black" argument.
How's army life treating you BTW, where are you up to with that?
good friends from different backgrounds.
Army is great thanks. Just on a bursary at uni now, I join Snadhurst September next year
I've been watching that series about Afgan on BBC 3. All of the officers seem so young!
I have passed the AOSB (Army Officer Selection Board) which is a pretty rigorous selection process and upon passing that you are offered a job in the army and as I'm at uni it's effectively 'deferred' until I finish.
the bnp like to wheel out their 'little indian fellow' too.
i'd drop this if you would just apologise properly for what you said, rather than trying to blame it on being drunk or apparently thinking that he said he was nigerian, because i've brought this issue up on a few occasions now, and not once before have you said that you thought he was nigerian.
There's like ponds to swim in and trees
Potato salad on Hampstead Heath!
Now the BBQ....
I was with you on the PS, but I can't advocate tree climbing at a BBQ. What if you fall on the coals?
amazing stuff. AMAZING.
(as long as it was made by my mum. And yes, before you ask, I'm still talking about potato salad)
i did it once, during england's 2006 world cup match. fell, ripped my trousers and had to go home in an england flag. thank god that match was on, otherwise i'd have looked even stupider than i did
rather than the potato salad bit, right?
Only I had sex quite recently.
As long as she was really, really fit.
bigotry on this occasion on account of your massive knockers, I bid you goodday ma'am".
