@ Sandy Cowell - The thought of a bell letting rip really is funny, isn't it? ๐Ÿ””๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ—ฃ "Can someone get mi mi earplugs?"! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜!

Whatever next? ๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿ’จ! ๐Ÿ’ผ๐Ÿ’จ! ๐ŸšŒ๐Ÿ’จ! โ˜Ž๏ธ๐Ÿ’จ!

Wolves certainly do let rip, and how!!!! I bet their farts really pen "n" ink (good one!) and they will probably be as loud as a bell too! I would rather hear a bell though! Wolves have a meat-rich diet, rather like ๐Ÿฉ!

Oh no, Wolves won't use their heads to let rip nor will they fart out of the hair on the back of their necks!

@ Nik - In some parts of the civilised World, certain countries maintained strict Puritanical*-style beliefs for longer than others. To take them out on young girls was the pits, and the nuns responsible, if you should ever see that film, were guilty of many of the sins that they are supposed to have been so against. Where was their humility? I didn't notice any self-denial amongst them either. That was inflicted onto the girls.

* The Puritans, of course, were not Catholic, but an extreme form of Protestantism, which involved the burning of Catholics, just one example of zero tolerance for those who didn't agree with their beliefs. Puritans were all for self-denial, however, (as were practising Catholics of centuries ago), and the nuns didn't conform to any of this, other than for looking bland and unadorned! There's a scene from the film wherein they line the girls up when they're naked after showering and say the most humiliating things about their bodies. At their young ages, that sort of thing would really do damage; one girl ended up anorexic and in a psychiatric hospital.

Acceptance and tolerance in every aspect of life, and that includes height of course, is the key to a harmonious World.

Wolves don't use their heads to let off, just in case this causes any unnecessary confusion.

@ Sandy Cowell - You have made a number of very good points, violence and cruelty are not preached by any religious figure, and no individual person should be violent or cruel for that matter. The whole idea of being religious is to be kind with people and reasonable with people at all times, all religions preach that people communicate with others in a respectful way, and never resort to persecuting anyone for anything. People should reason with others and if someone is to be punished they should be punished in a non barbaric way and in a way that is not excessive, the young girls in the Magdalene Laundries shouldn't have been punished in ANY way and I know that you think this too. Ultimately religious groups have always rightfully preached forgiveness too, like you said.
Any nun who is unforgiving or cruel with others shouldn't be in the job, the nuns in the Magdalene Laundries went against all the values we have mentioned, ones which all religions truly value. The world would be better if we were all reasonable, non violent to others at all times, and forgiving of people if we think they have done something wrong.

@ Nik and Bobby - It's worth adding that many of these poor girls would grow old in those dreadful places. They were called the 'Magdalene' laundries after the Biblical prostitute Mary Magdalene, whom Jesus Christ himself forgave, saying to the masses, "He who is without sin, cast the first stone." (Those days prostitutes were stoned to death.)

Mary was weeping with Jesus's mother, Mary, at the crucifixion. If nuns from the 20th Century couldn't find it in their hearts to forgive, they are in the wrong 'profession' - and I say that in the loosest possible terms. They were *ucking sadists - the lot of them. In fact, The Marquis de Sade had a better heart than they did, it would appear!

So there you go, there is good and bad in this World and neither Jesus, nor any other religious figure ever, ever intended for religion to cause violence and persecution in any form whatsoever.

โญ๏ธ The Marquis de Sade is the person from whom the word 'Sadist' originated.

@ Nik - Well, happen it did, and the abuse was at the hands of nuns. The film I finished today is also about abuse of a different variety, and the snowballing effect it has. A woman who grew up with it and went on to put up with violence in her own relationships, witnessed by her kids, had zero sympathy from the authorities, and even when she enters into a relationship with a decent guy, the first two kids are taken from her.

It ends on a good note, in that we learn at the end that she had three more children with him, and got to keep them. ('Ladybird Ladybird', which is based on a true story).

Cheers Nik!

@ Sandy Cowell - It is disgraceful that young girls/ women were so cruelly treat in the modern world and it is unbelievable that it was allowed to happen, surely the relevant authorities and people should have had enough about them to prevent these institutions from ever existing, or at least something should have been done to stop these evil practises once they had started. I don't know how anyone could be horrible enough to have put the girls through the things they had to endure in the Magdalene laundries, those who bullied the girls must have been very cold and it is hard to imagine how they could have any love in their hearts for anyone. The girls needed understanding and respect, not being sent away to some evil place to have their lives destroyed. What happened is unthinkable, these girls had never ever hurt anyone. Treating people cruelly is never a solution to anything and should never happen in our world, it only makes the lives of human beings worse and it doesn't change anything either.

It's interesting to hear that your cats growl, I would love to hear a cat growl, miaow, or purr!

Cheers Sandy!

@ Bobby - It's good to come across such a sensitively natured fellow like yourself and I must say that I have immense respect for you for adding that you wish you'd never seen it. Films based on goings-on from the Sixties count as present day history, and treatment like that towards innocent girls, one of whom was in there because she got pregnant after being raped, are hard to swallow and accept. All they were doing was growing up, and as my Mum used to tell me, it was generally just the inexperienced ones who got pregnant after a one-off.

This world can be very evil, and it's particularly unforgivable when those in charge are feigning being good, God-fearing people. They used and abused their positions, and I have never met a person for whom 'The Magdalene Sisters' hasn't had some kind of profound effect. (It's based on a true story).

All the Best to you Bobby,

The Magdeline Sisters was really depressing. I regret ever seeing it. Those damn Magdeline asylums and their subliminal brainwashing on individuals. One of the girls was actually being raped by one of the pastors there, and she ended up dying alone in some lunatic asylum because she wasn't right in the head, unfortunately. It's very sad material. Only like three of the girls made it out of there. One of them went on to become a hairdresser.
Sandy Cowell said on 10/Jan/19
The film 'The Magdalene Sisters' is not an easy watch. Based in the 60's, it tells the stories of girls who are sent away in Ireland for getting pregnant. The nuns treated them disgustingly, humiliated them and often made them mentally ill. They got a solitary orange for Christmas out of meanness. It's hard to comprehend that so relatively recently, girls were treated like that.

The film is one that I recommend as it gives it to you straight. There are some humourous moments and the film boasts an excellent cast, including Peter Mullan himself, playing an irate and violent father. The punishing regimes took place in what were known as the Magdalene laundries. I found it hard to believe that any of the nuns had any faith or humanity in them whatsoever. The girls were fed an atrocious diet, and saved the best food for themselves. It must have half choked them to spare an orange each for the girls at Christmas!

Cheers Nik! I have to go and investigate some growling cats right now! ๐Ÿ˜พ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜พ
Nik said on 10/Jan/19
@ Sandy Cowell - The film "The Magdalene Sisters" sounds very interesting indeed, how many girls were given oranges? An orange is a great present to find in a Christmas hamper, it would be nice to see it become a fashionable and popular gift at Christmas time (Yuletide!)! The thing is it is often the expensive gifts which attract the most interest, however it is the thought that counts at Christmas time plus oranges are an healthy option, so on those grounds I would hope that they would become more popular at Christmas time as there is no better route to go down in life than the healthy route! It's good to be mindful of our health at Christmas time and it is very pleasing to know that we can make healthy choices at this time of year because our health is a very important part of our lives, I am not saying that people should stop treating others and themselves during the festive period but it is better to try and make many more healthy choices than unhealthy ones throughout the rest of the year (Or as many more as possible!)! In society various different things go in and out of fashion and once something goes into fashion there will be growing interest in it, then hopefully it will stay in fashion if it adds a lot to our lives! Hopefully there will be a new fashion and that is for people to give each other oranges for Christmas! Furthermore I hope that there will be a long and lasting trend set in the future and this is people consuming plenty of fruit and veg at all times of the year! It can sometimes just require one person (or a small number of people!) to spread the word and start a trend and the knock on effects of others doing the same can be devastatingly good! Rather like this: ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ”œ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ”œ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚! Etc, etc!

Jaffa would be very happy indeedy if oranges suddenly became all the rage!

@ Nik - I remember a film in which all the girls got a mere orange for Christmas. It was called 'The Magdalene Sisters' and it was a Peter Mullan production, in which he starred. I have a copy of this film and I showed it to my hyper-intelligent boyfriend. I felt they were giving out these oranges not to make them aware of nutrition, but to save money. It's an adult-rated film and so it should be - based on fact. There are a great many stars in it as well.

@ Sandy Cowell - It is great that you are able to comment again on celebheights!

Nik said on 6/Jan/19
@ Sandy Cowell - That's so very true, it is a very good idea to limit our intake of sweets and chocolates to special occasions or at least to only have them on a small number of occasions per week or per month! You made some very good points in your last comment, we appreciate treats more if we only have them on special occasions or on limited occasions, plus it is better for our health too! Overall having this attitude is a good policy as the more we have of something the less we appreciate it, having things like sweets and chocolate on limited occasions gives us something to look forward to and to get excited about until the next time we indulge! I remember different people saying about getting presents like apples and oranges for Christmas, they are presents that were appreciated a lot and they were rightfully received with a lot of gratitude! They are very good presents to have because they are good for your health and they get people on the right road in terms of appreciating things for the right reasons, that is appreciating the thought and time given by the person who has bought them a present, and appreciating the value of that present in terms of the benefits it brings.
It's important that a person gives and receives presents that are appreciated for the right reasons by themselves and others, people should also give and receive presents that are appreciated for being sensible, affordable, value for money, and it is so important that presents are given by a kind and thoughtful person! It is also so important that a person is given presents that are not addictive, and that the presents are OK or good for us in terms of our health and wellbeing!
We could all play our own part (autocorrect tried to change it to paarl) in rationing our consumption of the less healthy products by buying recommended amounts of these products, nobody has to purchase something just because it is on display in a shop or just because we have seen it advertised somewhere, we can all exercise self control! Remember, we can only consume what we have available in our homes!
Yes, nature is very clever, and it would be interesting to find out about the science of nature, are there special forces out there which make certain things work out as it would seem nature intends them to? Like you said, it is so important for animals not to wear coats unless they have to but isn't it nice to see animals with a bed, or a necessary item of clothing, which has an interesting design?

Cheers Sandy!

@ Nik - Oh, I see what you mean with the chocolate eggs! It's worth jogging my memory back to my childhood, when my Mum told me that children only had sweets and chocolates on their birthdays and at Christmas and Easter. They were far more appreciated when they were severely rationed, and I'm talking about before the War, when the average family didn't have the money to buy sweets willy-nilly, not to mention, good sense played a big part as well. They sometimes had cakes, biscuits and sweets on Sundays, and casting my mind back, we used to have sweets on Sundays, after Sunday school, and rarely at any other times.

A little of what you fancy does do you good, of course! When taken to access, no food is enjoyable, especially carbohydrates, which play havoc with your blood sugar levels anyway! ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ˜

Nature is very clever, and clothes animals in exactly what they need. Thus they grow thicker coats for the Winter months and shed fur to have cooler coats for the Summer, keeping our hoovers as busy as these fellas: ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ

Clothes for animals to feed our funny bones is all very well, but unless an animal has been unfortunate enough to lose his/her fur, in which case they are essential, coats for our furry friends aren't really top on their priority lists!

@ Sandy Cowell - That's true, although it is great to see animals wearing nice coats or hats it is nice to remove those things from an animal after they have been wearing them for so long, animals do like to have freedom and to be able to lead their lives in the happiest way possible!

Well, Jim wished you a "Happy New Year" and a "Happy Easter" in the same sentence, this was funny and good to see! I like Easter and Christmas but this is generally for the occasion, I am not that bothered about acquiring material possessions, in any case I don't like it that companies often try to get too much money out of people as this can lead to people getting into debt. Also I think that every company should be responsible for limiting its supply of products which are damaging to our health.
Sandy Cowell said on 3/Jan/19
@ Nik - Not so much fun for the animals though, who always feel at their happiest running around as nature intended!

Yes, to be wished Happy Easter was very funny, but it didn't half remind me that as soon as the shops re-open in January, they'll already be selling Easter eggs. ๐Ÿ˜• I like to be filled with the Christmas spirit for as long as possible, and I'm not talking about the liquid variety!

I hope you have the opportunity of visiting some parks next year, it would be a great day out and as well as seeing lots of different animals you would be able to take in the amazing scenery, on top of that you would also benefit from walking around! It must be relaxing to be around water too and it will be great when birds, swans, and ducks, swim across a pond or a lake in order to get some food from you!

@ Nik - The beauty of animals is that they are never dangerous as long as their needs are catered for. They don't maliciously bite - accept if they're frightened or if they are doing it playfully, as with nearly all young animals. Even babies put things in their mouths; it's all part of exploration, and as they have little hands, they don't need to bite!

Whenever I've been in parks, I have always enjoyed feeding animals and birds. The squirrels in my nearest park are so tame that they climb right up you and look you in the face, cheekily! It's advisable to bring along some nuts to that park for them, along with the bread, which the park keepers stipulate MUST be the brown, wholemeal variety! When I read that, I was more than a little amused, and so was Jim. We'd bought white that day for the many, many ducks, swans and other birds, but after that day, it has only ever been brown. It's so enjoyable to watch them all swimming towards you, leaving little water trails behind them! They are ever so noisy, and their joyous quacking obviously attracts other birds from the other side of the pond, and pigeons too, of course!

It really is a great day out, and I look forward to next Springtime. The year just gone excluded these trips for me because of my hip operation, which has a long recovery period, but next year I look forward to seeing nature in all its glory again!

Here's to a Happy New Year and enjoying the wildlife that nature has given to us for our adoration and appreciation!

Cheers to you and your Mum, not to mention every nature lover who decides to read this!

Yes, Rob, the parties in Heaven will offer the pussies anything and everything they have ever enjoyed during their time with their humans!

I used to throw parties for my 'husband cat' Pixie, the Big Black one! (I had a ring with his name on it!)

One year on his party evening, he raided my valerian, which as you probably know, is a pungent natural tranquilliser! He pinched and chewed on the sponge when I was out the following day, and threw up all over the place! I phoned my vet, worried, and he said, "Cats know when to stop!"

In future, I kept Big Black Pixie AWAY from the valerian!!!!! I mean, catnip was NEVER in short supply!

๐ŸŒป @ Nik - I was once in the wildlife section of a big family park when I heard a Dad say to his kids, "Watch this!"

He then proceeded to feed a goat some silver paper balls and other things, including the ring-pull of a can. I thought it was an unnecessarily mean thing to do just to amuse his youngsters, so I gave them a banana to feed the goats instead. Goats do have a very tough constitution, but enough is enough!

@ Sandy Cowell - I didn't know that horses rarely do silent farts, their farts must be noisy and smelly then! It's interesting that they look round when they have let rip, if they have a grin on their faces it is possible that they feel smug and cocky because of their feat, and if there is someone close by the grin could be the horses way of saying "Look what I am capable of you whoman!"!

I find it really amusing that Dennis Waterman's character on "Minder" once said "I'm NOT spending another night with that horse; IT FARTS!"! He must surely have had a hunch that it sometimes actually farts but I bet it was a farting machine on the night he stayed with it! This was at night too, goodness knows what it would have been like in the morning after breakfast, or in the afternoon after its dinner! Nevertheless we can't all be perfect, as George quite rightly said! Ha ha!

One thing I do know, Nik, is that horses don't often do silent farts, and they often react to the noise by looking round! Perhaps it's they're way of grinning at us, who knows? I remember one hilarious episode of 'Minder' from the 80's, wherein Dennis Waterman's minder character had to guard a stable, owned by Liza Goddard, overnight, because there had been acts of theft going on. Of course, poor Terry, his character's name, has to bed down with a horse, a very flatulent one at that!

He tells his boss the following day, played by the late George Cole, on hearing that his guardly duties hadn't finished, "I'm NOT spending another night with that horse; IT FARTS!"

George's reply, "Well, we can't all be perfect, can we Terence?" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

@ Sandy Cowell - To be quite honest I wouldn't like to smell the fart of either a fat pig or an horse ('oss!)! Maybe you are right in saying that a horse has a smellier fart than a pig, I wonder if any animal can match an 'ole gee-gee in the farting stakes?

๐ŸŽ ๐Ÿ’จ- Him with the swinging legs is the smelliest welly **********!

It's very interesting that your Mum used to spend Summers on her Uncle's animal farm, she will have had the pleasure of seeing many different types of animal (autocorrect put animalฤ“!) and I like it that her nickname was "Katze Loli"!

@ Nik - Telling the Police to go back to the toilet from whence they came was his own way of telling them to Bog Off!

He'd laugh at the thought of being sued by me, 'cos I've provided him with any money he's ever had!

When he played the toilet sounds in the courtroom, which were still going on as he was being escorted out, I acted as though they were nothing to do with me. Who wouldn't? But the sound effects were interrupted with cats miaowing and my very distinctive voice talking back to them, so therefore I was well and truly stitched up! ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ‘Ž
Nik said on 15/Dec/18
@ Sandy Cowell - I don't know what I would have done if he had played a recording of me on the toilet, I would have probably tried to sue him for every penny on his balance! He just thinks he can get away with insulting people and being grossly rude, well if what you do wrong is bad enough then it will become a Police matter and you will be punished! It's a wonder he didn't tell the Police to "bog off!"
Nik said on 15/Dec/18
@ Sandy Cowell - I couldn't give a flying toss about what people may think about my Mum and myself using silly words to each other in public, none of these words could be deemed to be offensive so all's (autocorrect tried to change it to allsopp or alsopp,*I can't remember which!) good! I told you several days ago that I referred to bananas as nanas in Marks & Spencer in Pontefract, I still find this amusing!

@ Nik

Re: The rather serious matter of ๐Ÿ“ฑ's recent incarceration.

The reasons he is in prison are as follows:

He was caught showing lewd comedy down the High Street and when he was approached by the Police, he presented them with detailed pictures of men's private parts. He also swore at them and told them that they should go back to the toilet from whence they came.

Furthermore, he played a long recording in court of someone on the toilet having a number two to the Judge. I would have found it rather amusing myself, if that someone hadn't been me. Talk about not being able to take someone anywhere, I think that this has put paid to my ever taking him for an outing again. I was not in any way amused.

@ Nik - I can honestly say that a horse is quite capable of out-farting a pig! My Mum used to stay at her Uncle's animal farm in Germany in the Summer when she was a kid. She was very fond of the pigs, who showed great intelligence, but normally she's be spending time with the farm cats, who were nearly always kittening! Her nickname was 'Katze Loli", the second name of which was a shortened version of her very long German first name!

Hey Rob, today again a similar situation happened to me, the one I described to you recently, I can not believe it๐Ÿ˜‚! Today, waiting for my train to the city I met a man who asked me to help him order a Cappuccino in the machine, he told me that he is from Brazil and came to Poland for vacation, like in that previous situation I had to help him find the train to which he wanted to. Rob, has anything like it happened in your life several times and just like me you were so surprised?
Editor Rob
Yes, I have tried to help people out if they need it...sometimes though, it can be situations which you are just glad you were there to help...
For instance the other week I was walking with Jenny through the underpass (tunnels) leading out of our town centre and in front of us a woman came up very panicky and distressed asking me to help her as there was a man behind and she thought he was going to attack her (he literally was a few steps behind at this point).

We helped her and spent about 10 minutes just talking and calming her down, getting her newspapers and then going to the bus and making sure she got on safely.
Sandy Cowell said on 7/Dec/18
@ Nik - I also like the word 'tail'! I used to wind my Mum up by saying in as cat-like voice as I could muster, "Give it BACK! It's MY tail! Give it BACK! You've nicked my tayall and YOU don't need it - I do!" (I was pretending to be Pixie!)

It wound her up every time, but everyone else was laughing! ๐Ÿฑ

Rob, thank you for your previous answer regarding Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, Famke Janssen, Stan Lee and Christopher Lee. I saw that in another comment you also referred to your meetings with Jared Padalecki and Rick Fox. But what about Patrick Stewart, Elijah Wood and Leslie Phillips? You have already met them. Why have you never done a photo with the three of them?
Editor Rob
The photographer had them seated, so I might have a photo but it isn't of use for this site. I know some folk have no qualms about asking during the shoot 'I'd love if we could stand and shake hands for this photo'...but it's awkward (and one of the organisers asked me not to after the last time I did it many years ago).

They try to get as many people through as possible. It would put the celeb in a position of being seen as favouring one attendee and the crew get a little upset as if they do it for one, others *will* ask too, and it then slows things down.

@ Sandy Cowell - I think it's a good idea that Jaffa and Twitty were bathed in a washing-bowl, more than likely in the sink! I used to be bathed in a sink when I was a child and I still have memories of this!

Yes, Twitty was a yellow bird before she had her feathers dyed blue, remember the song "Yellow Bird"? Rob and I most certainly will! ๐ŸŽผ! ๐Ÿค! ๐ŸŒ! It's a shame that she was not happy with the way nature made her, we should all strive to create a society where we all accept and celebrate ourselves and all other people for the way we/they are. I am glad that Twitty is now happy though!

Oh yes, Jaffa is most certainly an expert in 20th century history, in fact he ought to appear on the "Mastermind" chair answering questions on this subject! Well, bumble bees can be female too and they pack just as much sting as the males! Also not all males are bigger and taller than females, this is just a fallacy! Anyway Jaffa is surely smaller than Twitty!

I appreciate the best wishes given to me by Jaffa and Twitty, I want to give my best to them 2!

I'm not as cut as Manganiello, but I'd say I have less BF than the average guy. Mine's around 15% or so.
Sandy Cowell said on 23/Nov/18
@ Nik - Oh, Jaffa and Twitty do live a luxurious life, but their baths aren't expensive at all. They bath in a washing-up bowl, or I'd fear they'd drown!

Jaffa the Bumble Bee is extremely proud of his beautiful blue canary girlfriend. She started life, of course, as a yellow bird, like any canary, but wasn't content with what nature gave her, like so many humans. Consequently, Jaffa saved up for her to have her feathers dyed blue and she's much happier now.

Jaffa, too, doesn't quite go along with how nature made him, but this is through ignorance rather than choice. Being a big bumble bee, his knowledge of bee anatomy is limited, unlike his knowledge of 20th century history. He spends a good deal of time in human company and observes that the males are bigger and taller than the females. He therefore thinks that bumbles are boys, and as for his sting, he believes it to be a symbol of his masculinity, if you catch my drift!

He appreciates your interest in him and his bird and they both send you their very best wishes! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘

The BMI system is most certainly crap. I'm considered "overweight" at 220-225lbs, despite looking a bit on the slimmer side.

Are you pure muscle with very low body fat? If so your not overweight at all. In fact if your all muscle iโ€™d say your weight range is perfect just look at Joe Manganeillo who is a similar weight range too you.

I myself currently weigh first thing in the morning 162-163 pounds at 5ft7.75 without clothes on

@ Sandy Cowell - He's not the only one! Plenty of people will do that too, he might as well make the most of it because hot water is expensive these days! There will be plenty of room for Jaffa and Twitty and I bet they will both relax, in a lovely warm bubble bath!

It sounds like Jaffa has a life of Riley, and so will his honey!

Rob, how many celebrities have you met personally with whom you do not have a photo? I remember that you said that you met, for example, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, Famke Janssen, Christopher Lee, Stan Lee, Patrick Stewart and probably many more people. How is it possible that you do not have photos with them?
Editor Rob
Well in those cases.
Peter didn't want to take any photo standing.
Anthony Daniels? We were in his auto queue and he went along the line and said hi to us all and when he reached us, he was standing beside Jenny, so I knew he was shorter than her that moment. I left the queue after that, as he would only take a photo if you got his auto. It was taking too long.
Famke actually was standing on her phone but didn't want to stand for the actual photo op so came over and sat on her chair.
Christopher Lee was promoting one of his Audio CD's (singing), not there to take photos unfortunately. At least I saw him up close.
Stan Lee - I was waiting around and Stan was on his way to his own photo op, he was with the organiser (Jason Joiner) and so I got to see the man up close, but it would be rude to interrupt him and annoy the organiser (I try to be on good terms with them).

Rob do you think BMI is useless for young people who can build muscle easily? I am think bmi is more for people who are very old or hard gainers who struggle too put on muscle mass ๐Ÿ’ช
Editor Rob
I have barely paid attention to BMI over the years. I think looking in a mirror is a good judge of whether you feel you are happy with your body. I mean when I gaze at myself in a full length mirror for 30 minutes, I am reasonably happy with what I see ๐Ÿ˜...I can't speak for Jenny though! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

If you had to take a guess. Out of interest, The "worst" comments made are a very small percentage of what you moderate every day. Possibly 5%?
Editor Rob
Yes, we are talking a smaller figure like that per day.

Luckily I don't have to deal with as much bots or spam because there are filters which catch the vast majority out. Sometimes, though, traps do catch legit comments now and again.

Nowadays you do have to be careful about what you type online. Always best having a read through of what you say on any platform or forum, before hitting that submit.

Hi Rob! I experienced something crazy today and thought I would tell you about it. I waited in line for a train ticket, and suddenly a stranger man spoke to me and told me he was from the USA! I really had to talk to him in English then, he and I were even joking that Poland and America were two different worlds and we were talking about Donald Trump๐Ÿ˜‚. I then escorted him to the railway station and helped him find his train. For the first time in my life, I spoke face-to-face with a man from America and I will never forget this funny situation๐Ÿคฃ. Rob, what do you think about this type of accidental situations on a daily basis?
Editor Rob
Well it was a useful experience being able to converse in English with somebody and help them out. I have long forgotten any language learnt in High School! I remember for the first 2 yeas of our High School we actually had classes in Latin...

Jaffa is rather concerned that the geezer next to him is covering his mouth and nose, and would be exceptionally offended if it's because he thinks he smells. Jaffa is a very clean bee and spends a large percentage of his pocket money on aftershave and expensive soaps. Please reassure him by telling him that it is because the red horned emoji stinks to high Heaven that is causing the yellowy geezer to protect his nose and mouth. Jaffa is so upset that he can't eat his honey pops!

@ Ben - Now that IS a fascinating fact! I never knew that Dick Halloran pops up in 'It'! Thanks for that! Maybe they've included him in the remake, which I haven't seen yet! Cheers for that! ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ‘
Sandy Cowell said on 4/Nov/18
@ Nik - When we were as young as 12/13, we had a literature and English teacher who actually allowed us to read crime thrillers and horror books in class in her lessons! I'm sure that did not agree with the headmaster, as we were meant to study the classics, which to this day, I can understand. They are full of interesting historical facts, certainly in the case of Charles Dickens, and cover the lives of the common people, showing how hard their lives were.

She also had a fascination for ghosts, telling us all sorts of weird stories that had happened to her. Personally, I think it was wrong to tell such young kids things like that. That age group is FAR too vulnerable! Stephen King wasn't even around those days, and if he had been, she would highly likely have suggested we read him. A couple of years later, Stephen King WAS on the scene, with his first book 'Carrie', which was loosely based on two girls he knew as a boy, who didn't fair well at all. The kids in my class read the book anyway! It was a kind of light relief for us after we'd finished our mock 'O' Levels!

As for the English/Literature teacher, she got the sack!

Have a perfect week, Nik! Cheers! Sandy ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜†
Sandy Cowell said on 4/Nov/18
@ Rob - Well, at least I'm not the only adult around who fools around with toys!

The film 'Demonic' stars Maria Bello, who is in 'Lights Out' as well. Neither film is as good as the Conjuring movies, but they are worth seeing, as you said was the case with 'Lights Out'. I thought the daughter, played by Teresa Palmer, was a lovely supportive daughter and sister, so that gave the film the feel-good factor. I WILL be seeing it again one day, after I've finished my long waiting list of films!

Have a great week Rob - and Jenny too.
Ben said on 4/Nov/18
@Sandy - Oh The Exorcist sound really promising! I will definitely check it out!
Ben said on 4/Nov/18
@Sandy - Yes, Stephen King is, in my opinion, the greatest author if all time. I have heard his disappointment with The Shining becuase Stanley left out a lot of details. I'm currently reading the book. The ending to the movie is genius and it messes with your head, what's your take on the photograph? Fun fact: Dick Halloran made an appearance in IT (the book). Halloran is such great character!
Sandy Cowell said on 4/Nov/18
@ Ben - I agree that in comparison to films like 'The Conjuring 2', 'Lights Out' was fairly mediocre, but I wasn't expecting it to be as fantastic as all that because I bought a brand new copy and for such a recent film, it cost peanuts! That's always a giveaway!

I, too, like 'The Shining' and I saw it three times in one week at the cinema. The usherette even said to me, "You like this film, don't you?"

I strongly recommend Stephen King's own elongated version of 'The Shining', starring Rebecca de Mornay and Steven Weber. Stephen King was disappointed with Stanley Kubrick's own take on his film, and should you have read the book, or seen the remake, you'll be aware that a great deal was left out of Kubrick's version, but it was an excellent film in its own right, regardless.

I don't think you'll be at all disappointed with 'The Exorcist'. It is still as scary as hell to this day! Try to get your hands on the fully uncut version, as it's much better; once you've seen that one, the other one seems to be lacking something. The full, uncut 'Exorcist' has a demon that is left out of the other one, and you get flashes of it throughout the film. Then there is the famous 'spider walk', in which Linda Blair walks down the stairs in what gymnasts call a crab position and it's a lot scarier than it sounds!

There are LOADS of tales attached to the film, including a woman suffering PTSD for years after seeing it and a cinema in the north of England experiencing Poltergeist activity while showing it. Only one boy in my class managed to see it, and he was a year older than the rest of us anyway! He saw it at 15, but was above average in the height department. The cinemas were massively strict with that one film. As a matter of interest, demand to see it was rife for years after its release in 1973, and there were special showings of it for years afterwards in cinemas, especially the ones that specialised in horror films.

Cheers Ben and keep yourself healthy and happy! Have a grand week, all the very best, Sandy. ๐Ÿ‘
Ben said on 3/Nov/18
I've seen 'Lights Out' and I didn't like it, I found it rather goofy and lame. My favorite movie of all time is 'The Shining', pure masterpiece. I assume you've already seen it though.. hmm, horror movies...let's see... I think The Conjuring 2 is great! The Ring is also really good! I'm planning seeing The Excorist (I haven't seen it but I really want to) but I'm worried I might find it lame even thlugh it's rating is high. IT 2017 is also a great flick!

@ Rob - You'd never guess what? I discovered a James Wan film that I actually didn't have the other day, when I was checking out the cast of 'Demonic' online, which was being shown on the 'Horror Channel'! It is called 'Lights Out'!

Now what's the name of that film you were watching with Jenny the other night? What an amazing coincidence! ๐Ÿคฃ

Well it's not as good as some of the other Wan films.

๐Ÿ˜Ž Correction Time! ๐Ÿค“

I spelt Lin Shaye's name incorrectly. It is simply L-I-N. Couldn't be easier!

@ Rob - I haven't heard of a film called 'Lights Out'! I have to check that one out; I tend to try to familiarise myself with most horrors, especially if they have a good plot!

I used to persuade my Mum to watch horror films with me. She'd hide her face away, just like Jenny! I think I must get my penchant for these films from my German Grandmother. My Mum told me she used to sit watching them with the lights out and biting away at her fingernails!

However, she was a few steps ahead of me though in that she used to hold seances. My Mum, at the age of 8, hid behind a chair and watched one. The table started rocking towards the door (it was the spirit of her late husband, my Mum's Dad), and his son, his pride and joy, was trying to snoop outside the door! When asked about the future of my Mum, the letters C-O-W were spelt out. That sequence of letters doesn't exist in Germany, as everything begins with a 'K' where we British use a 'C'. Years later during a seance, my Mum witnessed a ring being pulled off her Mother's finger by an invisible force and thrown onto the table. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ She'd remarried, but still got in contact with her former husband, the first love of her life. You could say that he was raging with jealousy! ๐Ÿคข

I might watch scary films, but that sort of thing? No thank you! I am a complete scaredy cat at heart!

Sandy Cowell said on 31/Oct/18
@ Nik and everybody else who likes ghost films:- Yes, ghosts are very busy on the 'Horror Channel' right now! ๐Ÿ‘ป They are doing a 'Haunted Halloween Season' at 9 o'clock on all the nights leading up to the big night (tonight!๐ŸŽƒ), culminating in the film 'Insidious', which was written by and stars the fantastically talented Leigh Whannell, whom you have requested before. I only found out recently that Leigh starred in the ghost-free but truly grisly film 'Saw', which I also have in my DVD collection!

Both films are excellent, but as a film franchise, I would plump for the 'Insidious' Quadrilogy every time. There are some other massive stars in them too: the delightful Lynn Shaye, the gorgeous Rose Byrne, the interesting, near-to-6ft Patrick Wilson and the hauntingly beautiful Barbara Hershey, whose career I have followed since I first saw her in 'The Entity', in the Spring of 1983, round my friend Sue's house.

I wish you a very Happy Halloween and everybody else as well!

I like it that you said about a kitten being an unknown quantity and about it being up to humans to shape the little bundle into as pleasant a cat as possible, it's your way with words that I like as well as the meaning behind your words!
Of course all kittens have their own ways though and this is influence a lot by their genes, as you quite rightly said! It is good to be able to bring a kitten up to be a very nice and well behaved cat, however us humans can't control everything about how a cat behaves during it's lifetime. Like humans. all cats, and animals in general, are all very much individuals!
Zampo said on 23/Oct/18

I do understand the overall point you are making. I think it's a tricky line. My belief is that people should be free to express their views as long as one is not "inciting hatred". The problem is people naturally have different levels of sensitivity so what constitutes as "inciting hatred" will differ from person to person. Thus far I have yet to read anything from yourself that is close to this. You've clearly explained the reasoning behind your views so I don't have a problem. I'm not the type of person to jump on a bandwagon. I'm thankfully exposed enough to have experienced different cultures/lifestyles to understand there is not one set way to achieve happiness in life. If you raise a happy, healthy and law-abiding family one day based on "patriarchal values", who is one to question those values/thinking?
Sakz said on 23/Oct/18
@Bobby I agree with you in terms of people not thinking outside the box or exploring different possibilities because a lot of the time they fear they'll be ostracized. I say this because people brought up in a certain religion or culture for example don't seem to be open minded or want to act differently (even if they want to), due to fear of being excluded from their society. A lot of people seem to be content to just follow the herd if you will to avoid standing out or being questioned by others. As individuals we have the freedom to do or think what we want, therefore I feel we should be more willing to exercise it.
Sandy Cowell said on 23/Oct/18
@ Bobby - You explained that subject, that of the Old Testament and people living for centuries, exceptionally well. Theology is a very interesting part of history; I've heard many opinions on the matter, but I must say, I like yours one of the best, and I don't say that lightly.
Bobby 5'10 said on 22/Oct/18
@Sansy Cowell

I have a pretty robust constitution, so not much really phases me. People have done crazier things in the name of deities, and other such things such as Liberty. Also, people were originally made perfect, so they had an unending life, but weren't immortal, but rather eternal. At least, that's the way that God intended things if you read the Old Testament. So, after the whole sin debacle with Satan, people were WAY closer to perfection than we are now, so they had longer lifespans. The longest lived man as recorded from the Bible was Methuselah who lived nearly a millennium or 1,000 years. I think he was around 937 years old when he died. I get that most find that far-fetched but that's the tragedy with modern thinking, no one opens themselves up to possibilities anymore which I think is BORING.

Bobby 5'10 said on 22/Oct/18

I typically always have a logic to my views, and I don't see my views as being negative, but that's something that others attribute to it. I don't believe in conformity because that removes personal autonomy or individuality. Here's the head scratcher, people like to harp on about being different and being individuals but most of them conform to society's standards or notions of thinking to avoid ostracism.

How does that make one unique, much less an individual? It simply makes them a hypocrite, and a conformist. Here, I am making generic statements, and not singling anyone out. Also, telling someone to just accept or tolerate something that they don't personally agree with is entrapping on the insividual's right to think whatever they want. I don't believe in bad things; I believe in good things but I portray them, perhaps in an opinionated or even condescending manner, but I guess that's my tone. It's not my personality.

For sample, I am heteronormative but that doesn't mean I believe in homophobia, in fact, my best friend in high school was a homosexual. So long as you're a good person, I honestly don't care where you come from, and what you identify as. I just don't like hypocrisy and conformity, namely in hypocrisy, we have free speech but we censor language to avoid triggering people, isn't that hypocritical of free speech itself? Onwards to the point of conformity, and this relates to my answer to Matt99, who can't seem to help himself from reading my tweets for some reason, is that people like to be seen as individuals which is good because that's a humanistic approach, but they conform to groupthink as a means of fitting in, and avoiding ostracism. Which is very ironic because people like to be different but don't want to standout for being different. I also believe in patriarchy but that doesn't mean I'm going to rule over women with an iron fist, it simply means that I believe men should be in charge as getting the final say but in FAMILY matters, that doesn't exclude the woman's authority, I would see my wife's authority as second to my own, if I am the captain of the ship then she is my quartermaster, and our children are the crew members. It's a very crude analogy but it is m hope that you can understand my reasoning on this. The children aren't slaves but it's their job to obey my authority and my wife's authority, in order to be successful and so this ship can get to its destination.

I could write enough to fill a tome, but I won't continue on. Although I hope you understand my way of thinking a little better now. I've got nothing to hide.
Bobby 5'10 said on 22/Oct/18

I'm an old soul, that's why. There's nothing wrong about it, and like I said, I've got an unpopular way of thinking. I didn't say that a man should become a tyrant, I never said that. i also specified this insomuch as the family arrangement, and if you don't like the way that I think, that's fine, you can step in line amongst the other people who all strive to be individuals but comform to avoid ostracism.

This isn't an attack on you by the way, even if you read it as such. I am making a generic statement about human beings, and what I have learned over the years. People strive to be seen as individuals but you give them the freedom, and they don't know what to do with it, and furthermore, even with the freedom of speech, everything is being censored nowadays. I believe a person ought to speak what is on his or her mind without ostracism or being politically corrected. No, I'm not saying we should regress old ways of thinking, but let's not destroy ourselves in the name of Liberty either.

Now that people have these liberties, and human rights; they abuse it. It's not only that too, but telling me or anyone else to get with the times is a restriction on my way of thinking. How can people claim to respect being unique if everybody wants to be politically correct to avoid offending everyone else? There's a certain give or take here, and all I'm saying is that I believe in heteronormativity and patriarchy, and the latter insofar as the family arrangement is concerned, if this makes me condescending, then that's your opinion.

@Bobby you believe men should make the ultimate decisions and also claim that youโ€™re not a sexist is that logical? Yes I saw your Twitter again lol but it shows you have quite condescending or as you like to call it โ€˜patriarchalโ€™ morals outside celebheights. Itโ€™s 2018 dude, patriarchy is an old relic.

@Bobby: Far from it. I don't consider one being opinionated a bad thing. Personally, I like look at things from a neutral perspective, whether one has a left-wing liberal agenda or far-right conservative beliefs, as long there is logic (as a starting point) in their argument, I am open ears. Again, to me your post didn't come across in such a way but I do see how some may view it in a "condescending" tone by some but that may be more of an issue with the platform (internet) used in discussion. As long as one is being respectful then you should continue to stand by your convictions.

I've not been on holiday for years, the last one was back when we went to America and that was 9 years ago. I don't travel well as it is, so I'm not sure when I'll manage another long trip.

@ Nik - Yes, cats are as much individuals as we are, only perhaps, not quite so complicated! When you buy a kitten, you get an unknown quantity, and it's up to you to shape the little bundle in as pleasant a cat as is possible, but its genes will always play a huge part! ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜Š

@ Bobby - Sorry about the late reply.

I do believe in God the Creator, but there is evidence of Caveman too. Have you seen the film 'Stigmata'? In it, Gabriel Byrne plays a scientist turned priest, who is employed by the Church to check out miracles, and disprove them when necessary. You'll like his way of thinking, Bobby. He then meets a young girl, played by Patricia Arquette, who is experiencing the Stigmata, as did St Francis of Assisi, who used to be a rebel and a thug. It is a wonderful film for anyone who has any doubt about God creating us. I have never had any doubt in that, but somewhere along the line, science (evolution) comes into it too.

I have to agree with Ben that the early Bible does contain things that are hard to take with more than just a pinch of salt. It is hard to comprehend how men could have lived for hundreds and hundreds of years, for instance, but I do believe in the plague of the locusts and other such things. I also believe in the New Testament and Jesus and his miracles. The Old Testament, being far, far older, does write about things that, for us, are hard to comprehend. Things get distorted over the years and everything is open to interpretation.

I don't reckon you have an 'unpopular' way of thinking AT ALL. It is the way I think myself, and I'm not afraid to say so. Cheers Bobby! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

I refer to it as unpopular because people don't seem to like what I have to say on matters because I'm not a mainstream thinker. If you're going left, I'll go right. If you're going right, I'll be going left. If you're going north, I'll go south, and so on and so forth. I certainly hope there's a logic to my views because I'm into philosophy, and I try to use natural reason to justify my views and my beliefs rather than pulling nonsense out of thin air.

So, I appreciate that you can see where I am coming from, and if I do sound opinionated, it's not for any negative reasons, and I am far from a condescending person outside of CelebHeights or the internet for that matter. I am just confident in what I believe in, so I guess it comes across as being a certain way to others.
Zampo said on 18/Oct/18
@Bobby: Whilst opinionated, there is logic to your views. I wouldn't say you have an unpopular way of thinking, maybe unconventional? However I think that this is a good thing. Naturally, one's life experiences (culture, lifestyle etc) will form the basis of one's mindset/thinking. There is not necessarily a wrong or right.

Well, I don't think my response was immature, but I have an unpopular way of thinking. Still, I don't like to promote a sense of complacency in individuals, and whatever you choose to believe in, believe it well. Don't believe it because of indoctrination but put it to the test.

Jakob said on 17/Oct/18
Rob, have you seen any good recent movies that you liked? I haven't really seen many in 2018, though most years I enjoy going to the cinema. I get tired of the marvel/superhero films after a while, and I'm not much of one for binging on TV shows,although I am a big fan of The Last Kingdom and some documentaries. I do think that the escapism of going to the theatre to see a good science fiction/fantasy/period piece is hard to replace even as technology means you can have so much at your fingertips in your home. I just wish people would not have their phone screens on inside the theatre, it drives me crazy!
Editor Rob
I'm behind on movies. I do think it's useful switching between genres and the more fantastical a movie, the easier I find it to suspend disbelief.
Bobby 5'10 said on 17/Oct/18

I respectfully disagree with you. A world without God is paradoxical. A creation has a creator. Take Alien Covenant for example, what would you say to David if he asked you after affirming that you are his creator, about where yours is?

@ Sandy Cowell - All cats have their own individual ways and they each have their own different characteristics, that's why they are so fun and loveable!
Nik said on 17/Oct/18
@ Bobby - Thanks for that! We can all control our own actions, every one of us should make decisions and actions which ensure that everyone in society is treat equally and fairly, the welfare of every person should be put first and there should be zero prejudice, we as humans should and can make these things happen and on an individual level. No body makes us elect hypocrites into office either.

Yeah, it can happen at times, although obviously not as often as girls turning down short guys.

@Bobby - Almost everything written in the bible has been proven as nonsense by proper science. Of course science has been wrong before and could be wrong again. For example, we weigh less the moment we die, could that be our spirit? I believe there's a chance for after life, however, it is more likely that we die and that's it, and we'll be reused by nature as food and fuel. I don't know how tired I will be of life when I'm old (If I ever get old that is) so I don't know what outcome I prefer. Death is like a long waited rest, a permanent solution to your permanent problems. It is calm and quiet.

I sincerely hope no one will kill themselfes now, you still have yet experience true love, being a parent, watching your kids grow up, travel the world, growing old with your love. I'd say enjoy life. If anyone here feel suicidal, remember all the good things yet to come and seek help. It's always a huge relief to talk to someone about your problems.
Bobby 5'10 said on 16/Oct/18

It's a noble thought but I think it's unrealistic. So long as we continue to elect hypocrites into office, we will continue to live in an unjust world.

Hey Rob, I was thinking just now, but how does CelebHeights function in order to provide a means of employment for you? Do the comments or views add up to some numerical value, or is it the ad placement?
Editor Rob
A site like this relies on advertising, so you really need a decent amount of visitors to earn enough.
On a daily basis something like 99% of visitors won't help directly, but they can still help in indirect means. The mere act of visiting pages counts towards other metrics that search engines take into account...similarly comments/guesses also contribute indirectly.

If you have less visitors you might end up putting sticky ads at top/bottom like many sites will do, or throw up extra ads. I've avoided that so far!
Bobby said on 15/Oct/18
@Sandy Cowell

Ah, well, I personally don't believe in all that caveman nonsense. That is to say, I don't think the human race has been around on this earth, for that long. I believe the earth is billions of years old, but humanity? We don't touch a fraction of that. Of course, I am a religious man, and I have my own beliefs and views as tempered by the Bible, and additionally, through philosophical inquiry of the world.

So, I don't think let alone believe that it's due to anything of that nature, namely, survival of the fittest. I do believe that tallness is associated with masculinity but not for those reasons. Women perceive a taller man as being more able to protect her from harm, and the man's own size would make her feel protected, and feminine. Of course, whether you personally think this way, is something I cannot say, but I have read surveys where this is largely the case.

Also, I think it's just expected for men to be taller/bigger than women because it's always been that way. If the average man were 5ft tall, the average woman would should be 4'5-4'6.

Heights are barefeet estimates, derived from quotations, official websites, agency resumes, in person encounters with actors at conventions and pictures/films.

Other vital statistics like weight, shoe or bra size measurements have been sourced from newspapers, books, resumes or social media.
