The smart people on this website will understand the joke and point of this thread but I suppose I'll have to explain it for the rest of you.

Post extreme example of bad British dental hygiene.
Ignore good examples.
Post extreme example of bad British dental hygiene.
Ignore good examples.

I don't have the patience to go through and fully construct a satirical thread on what we see every time an event like this one happens but I'll make my point clear.

Using singular outliers (and tragedies at that) in order to push an agenda that, historically doesn't work makes you a terrible person. On a website like this one, who so touts intelligence and denial of ignorance we should be able to see how fallacious argumentation and reasoning and emotional appeal only hurt our advancement.

I do apologize to any Brits who may have been offended by the title, this was the quickest analogy I could come up with

Obviously the fact that no one has ever killed a person using tea as the actual device may cause a few problems but hey what has any facts got to do with a good witch hunt?

There's nothing you can give up that will keep crazy people from being crazy.



edit: good to see people only see the content and not the purpose.
This thread is about using tragedy to promote agenda.

They might as well give up their tea. They already gave up their weapon rights and are in the process of accepting sharia law. Whatever happened to the English anyway?

This tread is just stupid, sorry but really “tea”, don’t think anyone has ever killed 20 kids with a cup of Tetley

I cant remember the last time I actually had a cup of earl grey

Now if you were to say would you relinquish your Whisky that would be a different matter.

The English…. I think you mean the British and we are not subject to Sharia law nor do we want to live in a society where everyone owns a Gun.

Please that is just BS, the amount of Muslims in the UK is about 5% of the population and how many of them want sharia law?
We gave up our rights to hand guns because of the Dunblane massacre where someone killed 17 people including many many kids.
en.wikipedia.org...

The public was outraged and a petition was made to ban handguns. We the public wanted handguns banned they were not taken away, we did not want them anymore.

I think we should all give up our cars,since some will inevitably kill some people. and obviously we need to get rid of alcohol because some will drive drunk so, no alcohol and no cars because of the alcoholics. And get rid of all cell phones, because all those damn texting people also cause accidents.

And we should just get rid of personal computers, because they have distracted us from life, and made us all depressed which has lead to lots of unhappy families, which has lead to violence of course.

We should also pay more taxes, lots more, because the govt can not manage our every detail in life with the meager amount we pay them now.

I think it would be best just give up all our possessions and let the govt decide what we get day by day. I am not capable of rational decisions that if made wrong might hurt me or those around me. But the govt is, they alway know what's right and will take care of me.

You are right, any thread that insists people give something up because of a few bad examples of what happens with said item is a stupid thread.

London has become the first region where white British people have become a minority.

Some 45% (3.7 million) of people in the capital described themselves as white British, down from 58% (4.3 million) in 2001.

THIS is what has happened to the British!

You clearly didn't read the thread as I made reference to the (stereotypically) well-known dental hygiene of the British isles. That is why tea needs to be given up, because it causes bad teeth.

We have always accepted people from other cultures for over a thousand years, we are proud of that. We are a mongrel nation and that's what puts the GREAT in Great Briton.
Some of us do not see colour, some of us just see human beings.

Some dental decay cause by tea verses almost 30 people left dead in a elementary school caused by a gun.

I think I know who needs to relinquish what.

I will give you a hint, its not the tea.

Some? Dental decay?

Bad dentistry wouldn't be a stereotype if it wasn't at one point a rampant problem. Just like "stereotypical" Americans are fat.

Tea has been destroying enamel for far longer than guns have been killing people.

Ban the leaf!

Tea started a revolution where many people died for the rights and freedoms that are being stripped daily.

Know your history!
