The Reasons why Scotland Should be Independent Thread

FFS OMG and numerous other wotsits.

Only Abdul could find these Celtic tosspots and their "music" attractive.

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Honestly, some of those guys are definitely my type even if not my "type".

If only they could incorporate a few German style ass-slapping move into their routine. :lmao:

Not unlike the street music in Chicago, except there are bagpipes as well as drums, and they are using proper drums not scavenged plastic 5-gallon pails. :)

Proper drums?

Here's Mrs. Camel playing proper drums.

With a belly dancer.

I refused to take part for fear of appearing ridiculous.

I see drum properness is a spectrum.


In front of the Art Institute, where I frequently pass by.

In the video it really doesn't sound bad, but it's still plastic pails not proper drums.
From inside a city bus, it's just another street noise.

The Great British Scone Pronunciation Debate.
The pronunciation of the word within the English-speaking world varies. According to one academic study, two-thirds of the British population pronounce it scone (rhymes with gone) with the preference rising to 99% in the Scottish population.[2] According to another survey, 51% of the British people pronounce it /skɒn/, while 41% pronounce it scone (rhymes with tone).[3] The difference in pronunciation is largely regional in Britain, with those who rhyme it with "gone" predominating in Scotland, Northern Ireland and the north of England, and those who rhyme it with "cone" dominating in southern England and the Midlands.[4][5] The /skɒn/ pronunciation is also favoured among Australians and Canadians.[citation needed] Natives of the Republic of Ireland and the United States mainly use the /skoʊn/ pronunciation.[6] British dictionaries usually show the /ˈskɒn/ form as the preferred pronunciation, while recognising the /ˈskoʊn/ form.[2]
