Was thinking bout this the last day. Adam Sandler was on the Graham Norton with three other actresses. Every time he was talking to either one beside him, he'd touch their knee or their arm, it was a millisecond, but I know its the action, nothing to do with the length of time of touch. I don't think there was anything malicious or flirty, I don't think he actually knew he was doing it. In this day and age I wonder will he get a gentle indication he's doing it or someday will some woman get angry at him. It seemed like the kind of thing he'd do if he had three actors beside him instead of actresses.

There's a guy at work who does it every time he walks past me, just on the shoulders and shit. I fucking hate it, but hopefully he'll be sacked by the time I go back to work.

Tomorrow’s headline:

“Adam Sandler Kills Himself Over Allegations”

I think things have gone too far.
Look at chimps. They do ‘social’ touching without getting angry.
There’s surely a difference between a momentary touch anywhere on the body as part of normal social discourse, and groping.
Isn’t there??
Next, making eye contact will be outlawed, because it ‘triggers’ some unfortunate group of inadequate.
Heyyyy!

It’s a cultural thing. The Spanish, the Italians, they think you’re some kind of antisocial weirdo if you aren’t fondling your interlocutor.

I suppose they’d stop short of grabbing your crotch, though.

Some studies show that we (the English) are more tactile than we ever were. Hugging friends, kissing the air by the sides of someone's face...

Looks like people are offended or giving out about it. Google adam sandler graham Norton. If she didn't like it, she didn't like it. That ends that.

Sex will be outlawed in 2018.

Offspring only via artifical insemination.

And wanking will be the new hip.
The invisible and the non-existing very much look alike.

Apparently she wasn’t offended.

But she damn well should have been!
