Yes unfortunately your mum isn't a qualified driving instructor. You might do well to warn her that if she doesn't calm down she might make you have an accident. My parents used to have nasty disagreements even while driving, and they had a bad accident largely because of that. They were lucky they ...

I suppose I'm somewhere in the middle - perfectly capable of living independently by any generally-accepted standard, and it's only old age that will likely rob me of that one day, ASD never did. But I wouldn't fancy my chances of doing it again now that the world has drifted rather more to the righ...

When I read it now: "Wrong Planet" is the leading community forum and resource supporting people with autism, Asperger's Syndrome and other neurological conditions. the phrase doesn't seem to have the same contrived, clumsy unnatural feel to it as it does in most of the sentences I've seen...

This one's fairly pure British:

As it's a 1920s style you have to wait quite a while before anybody starts singing.

Once or twice I toyed with the idea of leaving Facebook (because of how crap it is) and using Twitter instead, but it didn't look any better so I didn't bother. When I heard what the new owner was doing to staff contracts recently, My best guess is that he wanted to remove the hard-left culture of ...

Netflix doesn't let me download their videos, which I prefer to do in case they remove them from the service. And when I was watching their videos with my partner who lived on the other side of the Atlantic, it was annoyingly hard to find anything good that existed on both sides of the pond. We've s...

Don't know, I'm poor at creating overviews. With the only book I ever tried to write, I just started at the beginning and kept writing in detail. I had very little idea about the plot till I got there and had to think of something. I made a "concept album" of music where I had more idea of...

You're doing a lot better than me when I was at a similar stage with my songwriting.

Most stations in the UK are unstaffed and one buys the ticket from the conductor on the train. Only in populated places like cities do they have means to buy tickets when at the station. Ah, that explains it, I'm a townie. It's been decades since I saw a rural station. In those days they sold ticke...

The meter problem is fixable, or you could always claim it was a freeform limerick. I'm never sure when I see irregular meter whether the poet meant it that way or not. My problem is the opposite when I write songs. I'm too rigid with meter and rhyme.

Atleast she didnt suffer Charlie's fate! :lol: https://youtu.be/Dh994JcEfkI https://youtu.be/Dh994JcEfkI It's generally done by ticket in the UK, rather than paying on the train. Apparently the fines for being on a train without a ticket are rather steep: https://www.independent.co.uk/travel/news-a...

The Brits love to put trains into their murder mystery books, and movies. But they never SING about trains the way North Americans do. The British do sing about trains, but you're right that we don't do it in the same way: https://invidious.slipfox.xyz/watch?v=zfHkZDrxkbc https://www.youtube.com/wa...

I don't know if I'm "intense" or not. There seem to be quite a few different definitions out there. I'm not pushy. Physically I'm not particularly active, I just move quickly when I want to, e.g. when I'm doing routine stuff and when I see a need to rush. Mentally I'm very active, though a...
