If you're upset, excited or worries about something and there's no one around to chat to, what do you do?
Well, they say a problem shared is a problem halved, and when there's something on your mind it's normally friends and family who are called on first to lend a sympathetic ear.

However, it would seem that for over five million (59 per cent) people in the UK today1, cats and dogs are their very first confidant.

Although their trusty companions may not understand a single word, new research conducted by MORE TH>N Pet Insurance2 has discovered that 87 per cent (9.1 million) of all cat and dog owners will talk at length to their pets when no one else is around. And surprisingly, one in four admit they even spend more time talking to their pets than they do their partners.

Perhaps because they can't argue back, or maybe because their partners are often the topic of conversation! In fact, relationships, work, relatives and money matters make up the top topics of deep and meaningful conversations people feel they can only share with their pets.

It makes more sense than trying to debate the anti China posters in this forum although, in real terms,
the results are the same.. the replies are nothing but gibberish and nonsense.
Parroting the same old propaganda saws.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
