Prince Andrew Can't Sweat

Doing wrong is not black and white even in law.

My own father who of course had never heard of Prince Andrew, could not sweat. My mother , who had never heard of Prince Andrew, told me this when I was was girl . My mother did not explain about the adrenaline thing as she had no medical knowledge, but after Andrew's admission about not sweating . I can understand how hormones are affected by some severe life events. My father was at the Eastern Front during the Great War.

Also in support of Prince Andrew, he probably did not even know that it was illegal or even immoral to shag an unknown and poor seventeen year old girl. Very rich people have odd childhoods, and it takes special efforts by parents and teachers to teach them what real life is.

I bet he's sweating now!

Chew, rich people need understanding . Poor people need to understand rich people.

JaneJudge Sun 02-Jan-22 11:36:21

but do poor people sweat?

A very fair post Caleo , and sex with a 17 year old is not illegal in this county.

If these rich people have such a hard time they can give me their wealth and I will happily take on the burden for them. I can think of several good uses for all that money.

I don't know if this is my issue or a societal issue but I am finding more often that I cant tell if something is being said with irony or not grin

Not all of them😬 I don’t, because of a medical condition.

It’s quite debilitating when the temperature rises, I just cease to function as my core temperature rises.

It can be quite dangerous 🙁

No one here had sex at 17 ?

Love it! Caleo

Why not ? We certainly criticise them.

You see what I mean chewbacca.

Same here Galaxy, but I'm really hoping this is an ironic post.

Caleo Sun 02-Jan-22 11:42:54

Blaming people is useless . There are always reasons each person does what he or she does, and it matters that we understand the reasons. If we don't understand the reasons why people act as they do then we never learn anything from experience.

The revolution will result in same old same old unless us hoi polloi understand how very wealthy people think.

It may not be illegal to have sex at 17 here BUT it certainly is ILLEGAL to traffic people for sex regardless of their age.I wonder where he thought these young Americans were appearing from at his bedroom door ....
Of course his type expect everything on tap so women would be no dfferent even very young women.Please stop defending this excuse for a man.I doubt any of you would be pleased if your husbnds behaved this way or your daughters used this way .

Or is it maybe shame?

Galaxy Sun 02-Jan-22 11:54:59

That could be our signal for the clique, head bowed in greeting.

There are always reasons each person does what he or she does, and it matters that we understand the reasons.

Of course there were reasons that Andy did what he did and we do understand the reasons why the poor lamb did them: he's an arrogant, rude, self important little man who has a history of philandering and throwing his not inconsiderable weight around to get what he wants. He uses his wealth and heritage to avoid facing any of the consequences for the shit show that is his over privileged life. He's now revealed that he's also a coward and rather than face up to what he's been embroiled in, he hides behind his privileged position and his mummy's skirt.

What's not to like?

Anniebach Sun 02-Jan-22 11:56:10

How many girls paddyann ? One is suing , did she say she visited his home ?

Anniebach Sun 02-Jan-22 11:57:52

Chewie are you claiming the Queen is involved in this ?
