Re: Canadian 80s TV show with a paedophile host

What I want to know is why has paedophilia only recently been recognised?

Its scary to think of a society where it's not frowned upon... :?

REALLY scary!

Re: Canadian 80s TV show with a paedophile host

Apparently child porn was legal until the 80s! :| Which is somewhat concerning... So it was probably looked at as "weird" but never as "omg pedo!"

Just... how was something like that acceptable in society?

Re: Canadian 80s TV show with a paedophile host

I'm not sure what's more disturbing...

The fact that this man is allowed to do this, or the fact that no one on the show is stopping him... They're just lightly laughing about it!

I hate it when he "misses" after diving in to kiss the girl who refused to kiss him.

Its wrong. :evil:

Canadian 80s TV show with a paedophile host

I posted this video on Facebook earlier and I just felt it deserved a topic on here as I can see a very good discussion coming from it! It is, without a doubt, one of the weirdest videos I think I've ever come across! Obviously it's nothing too bad the video, but seriously give it a watch! Weird vid...

Re: Water Park: What's going on?!

When I heard the opening hours it baffled me! I heard they're doing it to save money, but surely they'd make more money keeping it open later and perhaps closing it at quieter times during the day? Or maybe even opening a few hours later. Surely most of their guest turn up after a day at the park, i...

Re: Very Old On-Ride Photos

I've got a few from the nineties. Got a classic one of me on the Log Flume in 1999. Will have to upload it! One thing I've noticed though, is how big the photo folders have got recently! Back in the day they were like A5. Now its like an A5 sized photo in an A4 Folder! Which is annoying cuz the stup...

Re: Disabilities?

The thing is, the disabled access is for ease of access, it's there to help the ride along and allow disabled users to safely ride the ride. Unless you're physically disabled or rather severely mentally handicapped, I don't reckon you should be allowed on through the disabled entrance. Dyslexia is a...

Re: Sleep Paralysis

I used to have these things where I'd wake up and the room would look twice the size it actually was, that messed me up big time. :? The other one was when I was a kid, if I had a temperature and a migrane, I'd wake up in the middle of the night screaming, running around the room terrified perfectly...

Re: Alton Towers next thrill ride

If we do see it getting replaced in such ways, I cant see anything going in there until 2012 at the earliest.

Seven years is a very long time for a ride to be SNBO! :( the current five years is enough as it is!

Re: Alton Towers next thrill ride

I've said it about 5 million times, and I'll say it again. Alton NEED a heavily themed dark coaster to replace Black Hole. Even if its quite a bog standard and forceless coaster it would still be a lovely addition. You could easily fit a Mack Young Star in its place, or even just a standard Mack Sit...

Re: Th13teen

A good ride, not an amazing ride, but a GOOD ride. I loved it personally, especially on the back row! Loads of airtime in the coaster section, a good look at the secret section etc. and Theming wise it's incredible, it shows that merlin mean business! I just cant wait for the park's next instalment!...

Re: THORPE PARK 2010

But in all seriousness, I knew I'd be shot for what I said. But Thorpe just seems to be swinging that way so so much with their new identity and branding. It makes sense to go forward with this view. Thorpe's target audience are young teenagers. Every time I'm in Colossus' queueline some teenager m...

After doing all the scare mazes at Thorpe's Fright Nights last year, I like scare mazes, but I won't be going in Saw Alive. The whole principle of the Saw films is just too sick for me, as Diogoj42 described it... it's just "torture porn". I know that the target audience for the films is ...

For me Achievements make me happy. I love to socialise, but I like to occasionally cut myself out of life to spend time on something like a project. I am a very sociable person, but the second things get tough, I just shut myself out. Quite bad really. If I had "Logic Pro", I know I'd spen...

The irony of it all is the fact that that man himself is quite obviously racist. I don't care what people say, but to instantly assume that an innocent act is a form of racism instantly says to me that you are a racist person and you're just looking to start a racist argument, if that makes sense.
