I only raised an eyebrow recently wandering around Rhyl. Seemed like everyone was disheveled and off their conkers. Seriously though who can blame them? The whole town is shut and destitute, most people I saw looked genuinely ill.
Doesn't make them all scumbags, the poor sods would have to endure a pitiful existence whether they were compos mentis or non. Never seen a town die like it.

You know - almost everyone uses escapism to some point. If not drugs and alcohol, then technology, Facebook, games, TV, etc, etc. Almost everyone has an addiction. Not just drugs or alcohol. Foods, soda, sex, etc etc.

If you truly have no escape mechanism and not a single addiction or vice, good for you. I doubt that is the case though.

It would surprise you if you knew how many people did things that apparently make them 'scumbags' and 'weak.'

I do things I am sure you would frown upon. And in the past you might even catch me on the street in an 'altered' state wandering around and exploring. I am far from a weak person. And like others have pointed out, look at your successful people you mentioned as people you look up to and their experiences. Are they any less successful because of their experiences with alcohol or drugs?

Compassion can go a long way.

According to whom? You? You haven't proven to be the smartest of chaps so far so I'm not sure why we should be taking your opinion of this topic as anything more than a grain of salt?

Also, Tom Hardy, a talented actor, is according to you, a SCUMBAG.

Huff Post




On being addicted to drugs and booze: "I thought I'd have a little bit of a party, and I'd end up high and frightened, in places that scared me. In a blackout I could end up anywhere. I might wake up somewhere the other side of London, or in another country. Or in bed with someone I didn't know, not knowing how I got there. Bleeding. This was on a daily basis. And I was going to work. I didn't want to appear rock 'n' roll. I didn't want anyone to know I was out of control, but I couldn't hide it. Eventually, the body gives up. My body told me. I was completely kaput. I was lucky I didn't get hepatitis or AIDS."

HAHAHA 'the PC bandwagon'?!?!? Seriously, is that all you have to say to me?

Continue with your nonsense mate, it's giving me a great laugh now that I figured out you're nothing more than a troll.

lol ohhh yeah your so right i did see Tom Hardy the other day in the paper for robbing a teenagers phone o he could see it for drugs....yeah hes a scum bag too .....cheers for pointing that out!...

Your little argument that because i like actors and singers/bands that may take or advocate drug use is daft, there a world away from the robbing scum on the street...and if they did get to that level then yes they would to be scum in my book!

Move where? To other small towns in Wales that are equally dying on their arse or do you want them all in YOUR town? The towns are dying for a reason, the people are the symptom not the cause.

What they are? What are they precisely hmm? Given what we know about addiction, it's causes and it's effects. I am fascinated to hear what your supposedly 'expert' opinion can butcher this time?


i'm glad im entertaining you fella.....off for something to eat soon though so get what you can while im here.


You're addicted to food!! You fat slob! Get up off the couch and WALK SOMEWHERE. You lazy, no good, dirty scumbag.

The shoes on the other foot now.

Stand up for what you think is right even if your the only person willing to stand up!!

Psychopaths don't usually feel empathy, nor do they admit that they are wrong.

That works for subjects where a stand needs to be taken, not where the subject involves denigrating and humiliating a group of people who actually need help and support.

I think your totally trying to put words in my mouth there fella, i like these people i never called them LEGENDS and just cus i like Chris Martin doesn't mean ill agree with his every word.

i like tons of people that may have done drugs etc ....there a world away from the crackheads that rape and rob old women in there beds....

E



No where am I putting words in your mouth. I never said you called anyone a legend. What I said is that SOME PEOPLE consider the people you listen to/look up to as legends.

Again, no where am I putting words in your mouth. I asked you to tell me about yourself. Who you look up to, and listen to and such (this after you already told us your position on druggies/boozers aka SCUM BAGS)

You responded to me that you are interested in Malcolm X, MLK, Tom Hardy, Johnny Cash & Chris Martin.

I then gave you factual proof (often quotes from the people themselves) that the people you look up to are the same as the people you bashed in your Original Post.




I like tons of people that may have done drugs etc ....there a world away from the crackheads that rape and rob old women in there beds...


Isn't this a wee bit hypocritical? You say you hate boozers and druggies of all kinds and that they = scum bags.

But now you state that it's okay if you use a little bit, only if it's not crack and you don't rape or rob old women in THEIR beds.

So apparently now weed & alcohol aren't that bad after all, it's only crack and rapists/robbers that are scum bags.

6 Most addictive substances on earth
more info....

6. Marijuana
5. Alcohol
4. Cocaine
3. Heroine
2. Caffine
1. Nicotine

So if we're talking about addictions and addictive substances.
All people that smoke cigarettes are scum bags (chances are a family member of yours has been a smoker.)
Anyone who drinks caffine products (coffee, sodas) are scum bags. I'd bet on it you drink sodas or coffee.

Many nutritionists and specialists have stated that if caffine were to just be discovered today, it would absolutely be labeled illegal.

Get off your high horse kid. You're not any more special than an addict, let alone a casual user.
Actually I'd call you a lot less classy.

If you're honestly concerned about changing these people's lives and getting them on the right track, why not donate your time at a substance abuse clinic?
Maybe talking to these people and learning more about why they do what they do can help you understand how they got to where they are. Everyone has a story. I'll talk to anyone and I enjoy hearing their stories. Even if I don't agree with how someone wants to live their lives, it's interesting to learn how they chose the road they did and why they're continuing down it or why they've decided to make a change for the better. Everyone, no matter who you are, needs someone to talk to.

Some people just don't get the idea of having any mercy and compassion until you make them scream for it themselves.


Well that's my happy thought for the day.

Have the OP washed and sent to my shed.

That's right everyone, stand up and bash people that are living a tough life (whether it's deserved or not)!!!
So everyone stand up, trash, belittle, and judge all those that are not worthy in your own mind/eyes!!!!

So stand up and be an ***hole??!?!
Now I Gotcha.
