    It's like we've become a nation of Scousers with the public outpouring of grief and the endless laying of Flowers. It didn't kend me to my very core.

    Exactly the same for me (the bolded bit). However, I was still furious that we had failed to beat the goons at the library that afternoon, and I think my response was something along those lines. That's where our stories differ...

    Sad thing is she is probably loaded thanks to being an instagramer who shamelessly posts pictures of her ass all day.

    There are plenty of far less honest ways to make money

    Is it bad I shamelessly want to see those pictures of her ass?

    A fair point, Im just endlessly baffled by the reward people get for having no talent.

    Used to be a particular skill, talent or ability was what earned you celebrity (if you wanted it) and a good earning/lifestyle.

    These days that almost seems frowned upon, while the quick easy buck is preferred.

    Of course not, its what the internet was made for :D

    I am baffled by..... Vaping.

    As a smoker of over 20 years, when it came to quitting, I quit. Wasnt necessarily easy, but I did it - and stayed off the cancer sticks for 4 years now.

    At no point did I look at people vaping and think "Ill switch to that". Not once.

    Even as a smoker, battling the breaking of that habit, I looked at people vaping and thought they looked like tacos.

    Ridiculous clouds of fog billowing out of their faces and going all over people/in peoples way. And then, not only do you look fudging ridiculous sucking off C3P0, it turns out your potion of choice is sickly strawberry candy floss.

    Genuinely, Id rather the stink of tobacco from a cigarette, never has it made me gag and want to vomit like vapes have.

    And, of course, to over hear a conversation about "the set up", battery, capacity, "I make my own liquids"... Its just embarrassing.

    Im surprised its taken so long, but Im not surprised to be seeing these kind of headlines appearing:

    First death linked to vaping reported in Illinois
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/world-us-canada-49452256

    Teenager Starts Anti-Vape Campaign From Hospital Bed After Lungs Fail
    http://www.ladbible.com/news/news-teenager-starts-anti-vape-campaign-from-hospital-bed-after-lungs-fail-20190906

    How people could merrily take these untested and unregulated devices and just start consuming them, putting that brick in their bodies is beyond me.

    Id ban the lot of them. And if I were an employer "Do you vape?" would be one of my screening questions.

    Being attractive has always paid very well, it's just never been so open.

    What's the country gonna be like when all the young wanna be famous but dont want a real job people are grown up in 10+ years?

    Do you think this generation will still be all over social media when they are older or will they trail off like most of us did who were around at the start of FB?

    I think they have grown up with it, and wont be able to put it down.

    I didnt get a mobile until I was 17, Facebook at 22 (I think?!) and so I managed to live a life without any of its influence.

    Kids theses days barely distinguish between virtual and actual, they are onto these things from such a young age.

    That in itself I dont mind, its more the aspiration of "I want to be a celebrity" without any semblance of the work ethic or talent required in years past. Now its a simple as "get on a 'reality' show and get your tits out" and thats it. Culture around these things is extremely damaging IMHO.

    Have you spent the last two hours tracking her down!? :confused::eek::D

    Her page is exactly what I expected.

    And shes not even anything special.

    I wonder if she will ever evaluate herself and think about getting a real job at some point?

    Well, that might be, but let me say it like this: I have far more respect for someone earning a living as a prostitute, than the self obsessed, wannabes, that are called "influencers".

    I don't think she wants to influence people, I think she wants people to pay her money to look at her arse.

    I just spent an hour doing it for free.

    Think I’ve spotted a hole in her business plan.

    Come to think of it, that wasn’t the only place where I.....
