2007-08-22 [Mortified Penguin]: *smacks head*... the weirdos who need "Southern subtitles"...
2007-08-22 [Duke Devlin]: Oh I see XD
2007-08-22 [Mortified Penguin]: Yes, but do you have 20/20 vision?
2007-08-22 [Duke Devlin]: Yes I do =P Ha
2007-08-22 [Mortified Penguin]: Oh yeah?! ...I have 20/15!
2007-08-22 [Duke Devlin]: Well good for you XD
2008-02-04 [Lady Arrianya]: People! I am American, and have talked with Canadian people who argue less.... However, I must agree, we as Americans have, for the most part, forgotten the whole meanings that we hereby set for ourselves, under the flag of Patriotism. We do need a president who can keep their head out of their rears long enough to run this country, and we do need better standards. However, baseball is also played in Japan, therefore should be removed from the above list (this is just my personal opinion, however football as America knows it should be discarded.) Furthermore, accents can be worked through and if one doesn't like another accent, then one should stay at home with the crybabies. I am not afraid to speak my mind, and others should not be either for criticism is a part of life and people should deal with it as such.
2008-02-04 [Duke Devlin]: Wow you took that a bit seriously. oO
2008-02-04 [Lady Arrianya]: one must as a debater...howe
2008-02-04 [SilverFire]: One must, as a debater, know when to be serious, and when to acknowledge that something is a joke, not to be taken seriously, not worth stirring anything up about because, at the end of the day, what you say is not going to change anything. Deus didn't write this, if you're offended you should think why, and remember that anything worth taking seriously is worth laughing about. What you're complaining about here is political incorrectness. British people love politically incorrect humour, so I think you're just going to have to respect our culture here, and deal with it. But if you really need to console yourself, you can always go to For the UK.
TO summarise: Lighten up, not everything needs debating, you'll ruin a good piece of humour if you get sulky about it, and well; if you don't like it, don't look. ;)
2008-02-04 [Duke Devlin]: I don't even remember the entire context of what we were talking about, and it was all in fun anyway, as I'm sure all will agree. :) .. Except Mort.. He'll contest that all the way. But that's just the way he is.
2008-02-04 [Lady Arrianya]: I know how that goes. Probably too well somedays.
2008-02-04 [SilverFire]: Sure you do, but everyone needs reminded every now and then.
2008-02-04 [Lady Arrianya]: True
2008-02-04 [SilverFire]: I don't make a habit of stating things I believe are falsities. ;)
2008-02-04 [Lady Arrianya]: Don't get me wrong, I see the humor of this as well, but there are some who won't see that humor. And the reference to Deus was due to my finding a link to this on her house.
2008-02-04 [SilverFire]: I figured, I was just correcting you. And you don't need to worry about other people getting offended, nor pre-empt their lack of humour. They may never see this, and then you'd have brought it up for nothing. If they do, they can be dealt with then. Cross bridges when you come to them, not beforehand. ;)
2008-02-04 [Lady Arrianya]: I'm afraid I must learn that sometime.
2008-02-04 [SilverFire]: Now is as good a time as ever. :)
2008-02-04 [Lady Arrianya]: Probably, if one is willing to learn :P. Then again, I generally am.
2008-02-04 [deus-ex-machina]: Indeed, I put these down on ET years ago after reading them elsewhere. I can see why some people might get offended, but sometimes I think people look for reasons to be offended so they can be offensive themselves. Xenophobic zealots come to mind. But no, this was never meant to offend. Well, to a degree of course it is... but it's one of those politically incorrect things that should cause a chuckle rather than a frown. And if people complain, those people can suck a nut. :)
