also, I don't think the Zulus were originally from that area anyways, so they had colonised & taken over that area themselves. am sure some saffa or history buff can explain further.

Yes. The Zulus were just as much invaders into the Cape as the Brits and Boers. But all darkies look the same to the screaming apologists so they won't notice.

I tried a normal pair of sports shorts for cycling and very very quickly moved on to lycra. It's not a fashion statement.


I dread to think what a normal pair of shorts would do to you after even a 40km ride.


Whatever you use, you’ll get a cyclers willy-bum area at first then get used to it and the problem disappears. £10 padded shorts work just as well as £200 ones, but quite often I wear neither and am fine after the getting used to it period. If I haven’t cycled for a few weeks in the winter then I will often wear a cheap pair under my regular attire for the first ride just to ease the willy-bum area back in.

More Echo's expertise but the tip was San and Khoikhoi until the invasion of Bantu speakers of which the Zulus were probably the most aggressive. The original SA peoples were forced into the margins. It remains a bitter irony today that they remain as sh*ttily treated as they were under the Bantu invaders, to be replaced by subjugation from Brits and Boers only then to be thrown back to the Bantus.

Cycle 120 kms a week and wear composite panel nylon shell cycling shorts with proper reinforcement and features to wick, soak and protect against the sun in all the right places. Current pair (Endura brand) has lasted 6 years and looks to have at least 6 more in them. You twats saying lycra is a must are wrong. It's sh#t and Hoy is right, it's never looked good.

Incidentally you can tell on this thread who's the desperate to be offended mind type - they're the ones who haven't read what Hoy said properly and are instead reactively clinging to their narrative fallacy. He actually said that lycra looks sh#t on anyone over 8 stone which captures just about any adult male, not just the fat ones. It's clearly said tongue in cheek, so obviously self-deprecating humour.

Little Mix singer being harangued for the awful crime of wearing her hair in dreadlocks. It's probably mostly 12 year olds screaming 'cultural appropriation', but before you know it some twat in The Guardian will be doing the same.

she does look a bit like a porn star in that photo tbf, never quite 'got' the fish pout vacant whore look really.

my daughters went to see a little Mix concert, or so they thought - in reality it was a tribute band of students doing their A level Dance project in Epsom playhouse for a tenner entrance fee for the whole family. My girls loved it, and I went to the pub for two hours.
"Daddy why do they look different ?"
"don't worry - Lets get an ice cream !"

Argentine Politician Forced to Apologize for Eating Piece of Bloody, Jesus-Shaped Cake

“Please, if you have any dignity left, quit, go away with the scourge that accompanies you,” one comment on Avogadro’s Facebook page reads. “You have hurt the deeply religious, and the Christian and Catholic faith. You do not deserve [your role] in a nation that was born under the Cross and the sword.”

Cardinal Mario Poli, the Archbishop of Buenos Aires, sent a letter to Rodríguez Larreta Schedule, the chief of the city’s government, calling Avogadro’s behavior “a grievance to the religious spirit.” There’s also a Change.org petition calling for his dismissal.

Some food bloke I've never heard of gets taken down by the noble Twitter mob.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-46042314

Quote:
The editor of Waitrose Food magazine, William Sitwell, is standing down with immediate effect after suggesting a series on "killing vegans, one by one".

He was responding to an email pitch from freelance journalist Selene Nelson who had suggested features on plant-based recipes.

Sitwell, also a critic on Masterchef, apologised for any offence caused.

Waitrose said: "William's email absolutely doesn't represent our views about vegans and vegan food."

He's had support from fellow journalists, including Times restaurant critic Giles Coren, who said: "I have great sympathy for William Sitwell.

"It was a stupid email but should not be a career-ender. Vegans are not a race or a gender or a sexual orientation or a differently-abled group. They just choose to eat plants."

Sitwell apologised again after the news of his resignation broke, saying it had been an "ill-judged joke". He highlighted a Waitrose Food issue that focused on vegetables, which refused to advertise meat-based products.

The Spectator's Peter Oborne added that it was "a dark day for free expression" and that Sitwell had been "driven from his job by relentless Twitter trolls".

In a statement, Waitrose said it was the "right and proper move" for Sitwell to leave and that they would be working with John Brown Media, which produces the food magazine, to appoint a new editor.

"We have had a relationship with William for almost 20 years and we are grateful for his contribution to our business over that time," the chain said.
'Incredibly ignorant'

Nelson, who writes about food and travel, had suggested ideas on "healthy, eco-friendly meals" as "popularity of the movement is likely to continue to skyrocket".

Sitwell had emailed back 10 minutes later, saying: "Thanks for this. How about a series on killing vegans, one by one. Ways to trap them? How to interrogate them properly? Expose their hypocrisy? Force-feed them meat?"

He also suggested making them eat steak and drink red wine, with Nelson responding: "I'm certainly interested in exploring why just the mention of veganism seems to make some people so hostile".

She added she had drunk some "delicious (vegan) red wine last night so I'm sure a feature on that would appeal".

His comments - originally reported by BuzzFeed News - were met with fury from vegans, with one saying his comments had been "incredibly ignorant".

The Humane Society had also called for him to be sacked. :lol:

But it was pointed out that Sitwell was "obviously joking", with another twitter user saying the magazine publishers had overreacted.

Waitrose said at the time that even though it was a private email, "William's gone too far" and that his words were "extremely inappropriate".

Sitwell, who's also a radio host, said in his own apology: "I love and respect people of all appetites, be they vegan, vegetarian or meat eaters - which I show week in week out through my writing, editing and broadcasting.

"I apologise profusely to anyone who has been offended or upset by this."

I was trying to find this thread yesterday to post about this, quite mad.

At least the fellow journo that shopped him has it in perspective

Quote:
Nelson did not see the funny side. “I’ve never seen anything like it,” she told Buzzfeed News. “I’ve written about many divisive topics like capital punishment and murder cases and domestic violence and I’ve never had a response like that to any of my articles or pitches. And he’s the editor. He’s representing Waitrose and he’s talking about ‘killing vegans, one by one’?


f**king idiots.

Yeah, sorry. Noted. It’s kind of complex and I don’t expect many people to care given it’s YA authors and the fight is being carried out on twitter. But I still think it’s representative of what’s happening with the culture and wouldn’t be surprised to see this sort of behaviour spreading.


No, your post was fine, I was talking about the article. Although I do appreciate that it's perfect for this thread.

Cannibalising each other over who's woke enough (with added petty personal issues). That'll deliver the inclusive utopia they claim to want :roll:

Given that actors can no longer portray people out of their own race/ability/gender/sexuality it was never going to be long before authors were subject to the same woke lunacy.

There was a article a few years back in the Guardian complaining about why a disabled actor was not considered for the role of Stephen Hawking in 'A theory of everything'. The fact that they needed an actor to portray Professor Hawking before the effects of motor neurone disease took hold seemed to pass them by.

Given that actors can no longer portray people out of their own race/ability/gender/sexuality it was never going to be long before authors were subject to the same woke lunacy.


There was a article a few years back in the Guardian complaining about why a disabled actor was not considered for the role of Stephen Hawking in 'A theory of everything'. The fact that they needed an actor to portray Professor Hawking before the effects of motor neurone disease took hold seemed to pass them by.


I have some sympathy with the race one.. I mean Emma Stone playing a supposedly half Asian was just silly. I also have some sympathy for disabled actors who have a limited choice of roles having a bit of a moan.. people with dwarfism are gonna get stuck playing Panto.. that’s just the way it is. But how one can say a straight man shouldn’t play a gay man and vice versa.. WTF
