.....that my wife and I are expecting our first child. We are over the moon!

Who upset the honkey? 

So does James Hetfield.

Cheers guys. No wonder the left never win an election here. Any views outside of the echo chamber and you're a dunce or a racist monster or both. It's an exhausting subject and I apologised for getting involved. That should be that. But I'm sure it won't be.

Sorry you feel like this. I'm as left as they come. All skeletons are the same colour. But put the boot in if it makes you feel good, by all means. The 87 final will still be one of my favourites. Cheers.

This kerfuffle is a decent example of what you say, though. Person A states something as fact, person B (and CDEFG) ask for an example of it, just one example, person A doesn’t or can’t give one and acts hard done by.

TIL that the last people executed in Britain, 'legally', was in 1964.

I think I already knew this (Today I Relearned?), but this has sort of shocked me a bit. That's not that long ago is it?

Further to this, while that was the last execution for Murder, the death penalty wasn’t officially abolished until 1969. However, the death penalty remained in law (although wasn’t used, obviously) for crimes such as Treason until 1998 when it was withdrawn under the Crime & Disorder Act.

The left?

Echo Chamber?

Dunce?

Monster?

 Apparently that makes you 'exhausted'? and we're the baddies.

If you want to talk talk, dont presume, as said before. 

Also if you think something is potentially offensive before saying it, then do not say it because it's probably offensive..  Tada!

The last person sentenced to death in the British Isles was on the Isle of Man in 1992.

Mind you they were still birching you for being drunk until fairly recently.

There’s that one as well about how the last legal  execution in France by guillotine happened after Star Wars A New Hope came out. (It wasn’t Lucas)

In Paris, there are five stone slabs set into the pavement of Rue de la Roquette. These were the foundations for the guillotine.

The pile-on feels massively unfair to be honest. It's pretty obvious that AshC hasn't tried to offend there. I've seen a similarly unnecessary pile-on in the Covid thread today too. It's not a good look, this place is better than that.
