Other than some of the pap we post on here, what other 'sweeping generalisations' are you inclined to make?

Lager drinkers and KFC eaters are far more likely to be litter louts than beer and wine drinkers.

Audi drivers are all trying to kill me. Whether I'm driving or cycling they will stop at nothing to see me killed in a road 'accident'. Their latest tactic is to spring their door open after a good hard look in the wing mirror to time their attack. Makes a change from the classic 2cm overtake though.

Stop defaming larger drinkers.... the the sh*t that's sold as larger in the UK is nothing of the sort.

I've often said that too. It's similar to a document being described as a toolkit. Eurgh!

On the subject of yoga, it does amuse me that yoga teachers, all about the spirituality, all seem to be very commercially aware. I'm not sure I can square that circle.

I thought that, in cycling, it is *upwind* both ways. ;)

On topic: Any forum post that ends with, "... and yet here you are..." is drivel.

I know - go to the US and see the size of their drinkers.

It says 'Lager' on the tins in the hedgerow therefore my sweeping generalisations are valid. Feel free to class 'real' lager drinkers under the beer drinker category, though.

It is more effective to sweep towards yourself, across the front of your body, rather than push away.

In my experience of litter picking, McDonalds eaters, cigarette smokers and energy drink drinkers (Red Bull, Monster etc) are the most likely.

Yeah ! them too. The more sweeping the generalisation the better.

People who believe in God are mental.

A person who does not drink alcohol is an alcoholic or mental.

Drivers who wear hats (young or old) are twa*#s.

Any sentence containing words 'Nigeria' and 'investment' is a fraud.
