Over the next three months, I will be in the unenviable position of having to sit around my house for hours getting stoned, walking my dog through glorious countryside, learning how to garden, cook delicious vegan dishes and doing as many press ups as I want, whenever I choose. All this without having to go to work for the man:(
This means that I’ll probably end up being a pretty regular poster in these halls which means there will be pointless threads aplenty.
To get the ball rolling, I have decided to create an apathy list. It’s all fair and good ranting about ranting about people we hate (Adolf Hitler, Robert Kilroy Silk, Robert Mugabe, George Bush) and adoring those we love (Nelson Mandela, Ghandi, Mother Teresa, Ian Davies) but what of those that nobody cares less about either way? They need attention too!
So I’m going to start and sometimes add to a list of people who I don’t have an opinion on. To give it a TRF twist, if anybody gets put onto the apathy list that shouldn’t be there then us good users get to hyperanalyse these people and try to convince one another that the person in question should be loved or hated.

Sorry for not using you on my love list examples – honestly, it just slipped my mind.
I sometimes wish that I wouldn’t let myself post threads after smoking happy herbs but I guess I’ve made my bed and I have to sleep in it.

Should have called it the irony list then.
Surely Ian, what part of that sentance did you have to edit? I’m sure this edit thingy is just a cute gimmick

People from history that I don’t give a monkey’s about, either way,
Adolf Hitler<br>Joe Stalin<br>The Black Prince<br>Oliver Cromwell<br>Victoria and Albert<br>Ghengis Khan<br>Julius Ceasar<br>Rommel<br>Montgomery<br>Henry VIII<br>The Late Queen Mother<br>William of Orange<br>Ivan IV (the terrible)<br>All of the American Presidents<br>William the Conquerer<br>Napoleon Bonapart<br>Vivaldi
I’m sure they are all indifferent towards me also ..
People who I am indifferent to who may be alive ..
Everyone who I haven’t spoken to in real life or on the net.
I can only think of 3 people who I dislike and no-one that I hate. I personally like most folk, but like to keep a respectful distance, in case they get to know me, well. Because I wouldn’t be able to cope with the rejection.May 23, 2005 at 21:36 #91650graysonscolumnParticipant

"Ten items or less"
"Can you be more pacific?"
"United are the winners"
"To boldly go where no man has gone before"
"I was sat reading the paper earlier"

Alternatively though Ian you could end up doing the Classic 60’s adds which appear all over the place with that bloke from Manfred Mann going "ooo that takes me back" :(May 24, 2005 at 13:39 #91655
