    If you don’t mind me saying so, you seem a bit conflicted.

    You say “Of course there is a line which shouldn’t be crossed” and “the question of where we set the line”. This seems to presuppose that there is “a” (singular) line and a “we” that provide a consensus about where it is. It seems clear to me that a diverse society is going to have many lines and many overlapping groups that define them. There is no “a line” and there is no “we”.

    It seems like you recognize this when you also say “it appears that the threshold at which the line is crossed is becoming harder to determine and more fudged” and “I accept that is subjective”. Which suggests to me that you might be looking for certainty in an environment that just isn’t going to provide it. I don’t think there has ever…[Read more]

    If, as a member of a minority religious or ethnic group, you’d spend a large part of your life enduring ignorance, discrimination, or downright hatred, how willing would you be to put up with other people claiming you were taking yourself “too seriously” because its just “good old fashioned banter and name calling”?

    Yeah obviously the tax thing is an issue…

    But I cant imagine many of those who do things like sell beauty stuff like Avon necessarily are registered. You need to watch Ebay as at a certain point they will demand to see that you’re a proper business if you sell a certain amount of stuff or its obvious you’re selling stuff purely to make money out of it. We sell stuff on Ebay (as a reg business) and we had to jump through hoops to prove to them we were a legitimate business. I would start though with selling stuff that you simply dont need though thats hanging about the house.

    Whats the best thing to use to clean and disinfect a keyboard and mouse? My boss will insist on using mine when Im out of the office, so every afternoon, and he has some very unpleasant habits (which I wont relate for you). Before I start work in the morning I normally wipe everything over with a baby wipe but would like to disinfect it if possible to reduce my chances of catching his children’s various bugs, which he seems to think is his duty to pass on to me. Telling him not to use it is not an option so what can I use on it, daily, to help with cleanliness?
