Can I Sue?

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 15 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 15 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and wrote about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

So, given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views may well have changed in the last 15 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find utterly cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

As everybody knows (don’t you?), David Sneddon was the winner of last year’s Fame Academy. So, when it was mentioned on Celebdaq last night that you would be surprised at what you’d find on www.davidsneddon.com, I was obivously curious and decided to have a look.

Admittedly, I was surprised, but the guest on the show was Joe Mace, children’s TV presenter. Therefore, the content I discovered was, well, not what you’d expect to be mentioned on BBC Three. Can I now sue them for destroying my mind? I suspect not.

Because I never read dialog boxes and always just click OK, I’ve managed to install some of my laptop software in Portuguese. Oops. So I’ve just typed into Google Translation the default power management option, to see if I can work out how it is setup. Apparently, I’m currently on “Maximum performance with piles”. I suspect a little has been lost in the translation.

Anyway, as no-one else want to post here right now, that’s your lot for the mo. Come back soon for much more from the world of…well…me. Or add another hit to the 12000+ already accumulated at www.sjhoward.co.uk. In the mean time, be good…or at least get good at being baaad (oo-er)! Bye!
