There's so many factors, it's mind boggling. All I know (and firmly still believe) is that any time a woman reports that's she's been sexually assaulted or raped, she has to be taken seriously and her allegation has to be investigated. I was accused of rape once, and arrested for it .. worst day of my life and I still haven't recovered from it even though I wasn't charged. One thing I was determined not to become after that was a woman hater. I remember phoning my Dad, scared shitless and he told me after a deep sigh "She's probably accused men before .. " .. he was uncannily correct, I later found out I was number 2 of 3 .. "Now I need you to listen to me, you're scared so naturally you're going to want to tell everybody you know what's just happened to you but don't and I can't stress that enough. I'll put you onto your Mother." ..
Being put in authority in my experience is more often a case of 'less is more' .. the mods here will probably consent to that angle unless they have no choice .. giving someone high authority who isn't ready for it is like putting a teenager on a high powered motorbike, it's not going to end well without maturity.I believe having power over another person (or any living thing for that matter) can be intoxicating and addictive, whether it comes from a president of a country or a teenage babysitter.
Getting someone to do as you say, especially when they don't want to, has an immense effect on the one giving the orders.
When your Granny said "Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely" she wasn't wrong.
A male nurse has been arrested on suspicion of rape after a woman who has been in a coma for 14 years gave birth last month.
Phoenix Police announced that Nathan Sutherland, 36, who was employed at the Hacienda HealthCare centre in Phoenix, Arizona, was arrested today after his DNA "matched the baby".
Chief Jeri Williams said the hospital worker was responsible for caring for the patient during the time she was sexually assaulted.
Police said Sutherland was a licensed practical nurse and had worked at the facility since 2011.
You can draw straight line between ethics and seniority in almost every enterprise 'on average'.I agree with every word and will add that it's about power.
Even a small amount of power, such as being the one who decides whether the new secretary is suitable, can go to some men's heads and make them think they have Droit de Seigneur or whatever it is.
I was personally subjected to this type of harassment at work and elsewhere along with most of my friends and colleagues for years.
We learned to spot the dirty bastards from afar. They were usually the jovial family men whom nobody would suspect of sleaziness. It's all an act. Politicians' second nature.
That’s The Second Coming with an immaculate conception ruled out in this case then. I reckon it took about half an hour to solve this case at the end but the gestation period is nine months. The really weird thing is nobody noticed this timelapse taking place.
Off the scale when it comes down to questions of betrayal of trust .. this man needs the heaviest penalty possible for what he's done if he's proven guilty .. and it sounds like he is .. the sick ****. KILL BILL but for real this time.
Andy, I have taken endeavours to a 'Scots Language' forum - surely an explanation therein?Yep, I've looked at the fan forums and found no answers either, but I did see that post with the Grandmother claim!
cf. that weird phase in Ever Decreasing Circles where Ann keeps saying things three times. Is she supposed to be having some sort of breakdown? Is there a hidden occult significance to this? Is it an in-joke amongst the writers?
Nobody knows ...
Not available in Europe. Bah! I could get all high-techy and pretend to be from somewhere else. Actually, I probably couldn't!Michigan couple and their 19-month-old daughter were removed from an American Airlines flight after the airline told them that other passengers and crew members had complained about their body odor.

In the absence of further evidence to the contrary... and given no trace of any such song (even though, as mentioned, someone recalls her Granny singing it...), I believe you may be shockingly close to the truth here.... I suspect Jack's little ditty may be one of those comedy mysteries that was created to be deliberately unsolvable, along with whatever's in Alan's drawer at the Travel Tavern.
Please may I point out AGAIN that the doctrine of Immaculate Conception has no relation to the conception and birth of Christ. It is His mother, Mary whose conception was considered "immaculate" (only from the 19th century onwards, due to the visions of St Bernadette Soubirous)). Mary's conception to Elizabeth was immaculate as she was conceived without the taint of original sin (not without sexual intercourse) in order to be a suitable vessel for Christ. Jesus is both wholly human and wholly divine in one person, conceived by the action of the Holy Spirit on His mother.That’s The Second Coming with an immaculate conception ruled out in this case then. I reckon it took about half an hour to solve this case at the end but the gestation period is nine months. The really weird thing is nobody noticed this timelapse taking place.
How does this not involve Jesus?In Christian theology, the Immaculate Conception is the conception of the Virgin Mary free from original sin by virtue of the merits of her son Jesus. The Catholic Church teaches that God acted upon Mary in the first moment of her conception, keeping her "immaculate".

One response to my inherent query to the Scots Language forum - they have close to 5,000 subscribers, so if they've all never come across a related song, seems the following conclusion is reasonable:
"I think it's mibbes jist a bit of nonsense. Nae meaning ataw. But it gets folk wunnering!".
Well done, sir.

I so hate shit like that. :O Worst thing about a thief is every bugger ends up being a suspect.Fucking great ..
Three bottles of vodka have gone missing within the last three days from the Mrs's work place, her boss has just sent her a pm asking if she has any ideas where they could be. I don't think he's accusing her or anything, the place has been back open to the public for the last three days so other staff have been there .. the only thing is, she phoned me last night because the place was dead so I popped down to see her for about 20 minutes. Unless these bottles have been put somewhere else, I've got a couple of gut instinct ideas about who could have nicked them. Her boss doesn't know I popped in last night, I've told the Mrs that if he asks she's to tell him I did. I'm paranoid now they might think it was me even though it wasn't
I didn't say it didn't involve Jesus. Jesus was conceived by Mary via the Holy Spirit while she remained virgin. BUT Jesus' conception is NOT The Immaculate Conception - it was a conception by the Holy Spirit upon a human woman. The doctrine of the Immaculate Conception is the belief that Mary herself was conceived "immaculate" to her parents Joachim and Anne, i.e. without the stain of human sin and is the only human being to have been so conceived. So Mary may be referred to as "Immacuate Conception" as one of her titles; Bernadette Soubirous, later St Bernadette of Lourdes, told her interrogators that her vision of Mary told her this, saying, "I am the Immaculate Conception". The phrase does not refer to Jesus' own conception, although people often assume it does.You may point it out but according to wiki...
How does this not involve Jesus?
Yep .. I used to work for my Dad as an accounts clerk in the early 90's, everyone was on edge when we were told money was missing from the safe including me because I knew the safe code. They caught the culprit in the end but I can still remember getting back home one day and saying to my Dad "I've no idea who's robbing from your safe but I promise you that when you find out, it isn't going to be me." .. it's a horrible atmosphere to work in.I so hate shit like that. :O Worst thing about a thief is every bugger ends up being a suspect.

While you might think that a used tissue would be cheap, it’s actually the complete opposite.
Vaev charges a staggering $80 for them - and they’re currently sold out
Had it happen as a teenager when I had a bar job, barmaid's partner was a taxi driver and he'd stashed his takings in our back room one night when they went missing, I didn't know until the next night and just happened to have bought some new trainers and a jacket that day... might as well have just shot myself in the face and been done with it. She made life shit as hell for me after that.Yep ..

Reminds me of the same thinking behind Mothers throwing chicken pox and Measles parties: one infected kid infects the others so they don't get the illness when they're older and it's a more serious problem then.Danish company is selling 'used' tissues which "allow people to get sick on their terms."
