This is a spoof? April 1st? No?

I know what stareing means, and starring, but what is this staring? An Americanism?

If staring means what I suppose it means, how can I do it with a sexual nature? I do remember hot pants and enjoyed stareing at the backside view.

The bottom {!} line is that I am not to make eye contact with anyone, be it female , male or indeed any of the myriad self-identifications.

This confirms my suspicion: the lunatics are fully in charge, and I and a few circles of friends and acquaintances are the last sane survivors of the human race.

beam me up/ stop the world I want to get off.

In the brilliant, hilarious, (IMHO) series "Succession", which depicts the disfunctional family empire of a right wing global media tycoon (think Murdoch) there is a brief shot, during the lead-in, of the parent news station "ATN" showing a newscaster over a banner headline which reads:
"I smiled at her by the photo copier and now I'm facing chemical castration"

Throwing up farcical headlines doesn’t excuse the problem - but probably explains why investigation and sentencing is being taken out of the hands of the military….

Agree, that seems a little over the top. Actually, a lot over the top.

​​​​​​? Stareing? Never heard of it, never seen it written, until now.

I was taught that it is rude to stare and find being stared at offensive and intimidating. Old school I suppose, but am glad that those not as well brought up are being educated how to comport themselves in public.

Probably a relic of my long ago deep Sussex grammar school ........ I shall fall in line and write staring 100 times.

I promise that I will never say "different to" as opposed to "different from".

No fule like an old fule.
