Comments on Monday 15 July 2002:
A rather excellent un-American article from England, where they are allowed to say such things. You really shouldn't read it, it's pure nonsense - America is the best nation in all the world, and everyone knows it and they're all just jealous. [03:00]

I've been meaning to ask you Raven.... how as the propaganda macine that rules here in America affected your life recently?

Tyrethali
As the elite Officer of Conversion in charge of Mr. Black's case, I can say he's proving remarkably resistant. And how did you find out about our operations, anyway?

RavenBlack
Apparently, around 1937, Germany was condemning people for anti-German attitudes. Ah, the cycle of history.

World War 2, remade and digitally remastered! Starring America as Germany, Canada as France, England as Japan and Australia as Italy. Introducing George W. Bush as Adolf Hitler, and Dick Cheney as Goebels.

RavenBlack
Also featuring Hackers, Arabs and West-Indians as "Jews".

Digi
Oops the director forgot to cast the roles of the the Allies.

I've read the script and so know evetyones lines, can I be the allies?

Speaking of digital remastery, played warcraft 3 yet?

I was watching Seven the other night. They resort to paying someone to covertly find out suspicious reading material taken out from the city libraries, in the attempt to try and find their adversary.

They shouldn't be doing it, it's illegal, and when they find the right house they can't go in and look around, despite being fired upon, because they have no lawful reason to be there.

Good thing that the Patriot Act now means that the FBI can do just that, eh?

Life imitating movies...
the best movies are the ones that mock life.

Digi
No, the best movies movies are those that movk life and hace kung-fu.

Digi
The thought of such a movie messes my spelling up completely.

Kevan
If pre-war Germany condemning the un-German is amazing "apparent" news to you, you should read up on the burning of the Reichstag.

Tom
Apparently, around 1937, the USA was condemning people for anti-American attitudes with the establishment of the House of Un-American Activities Committee. Not so much a cycle as a bent pogo stick with rusted springs.

Ole
Oh. I thought that HUAC was a fifties thing, but apparently it isn't: http://www.infoplease.com/ce6/history/A0824313.html says 1938-75.
Learn something old every day.

That must be one of the most single-minded things I've ever read. Don't you realise that there's actually a world outside of America? I think the "jealous" conclusion you came to has been evoked by the fact that we're pissed off because everytime you see something different...it's not DIFFERENT, it's wrong, beacuse according to you, the only way is the AMERICAN way...

Tyrethali
Well, of course there's a world outside America. Where do you think the terrorists live?

Nik
GeneralHavok: You are a fool, and I hope I'm never within earshot of you.

RavenBlack
I think GeneralHavok probably meant "small-minded" rather than "single-minded". Though that would have just increased the irony.

GeneralHavok
I'm no fool...and nothing's perfect, and I'm sorry to be the one breaking the news, but...that includes America. I'm not anti-america, I'm not anti-anything, it's just the american ego can get tiring. It's one thing to be patriotic...it's another to be down right ignorant.

Tyrethali
Admit it, Tiddles, you just wish you lived in the land of the free and the home of the brave, too.

Nik
See, when I'm accused of being a fool over something I do or say, I ask why that is. This is the non-fool response. I don't blindly repeat myself, /especially/ when I've got a less-than-solid grasp on the facts.

GeneralHavok
Yes, and the reason I repeat myself is because obviously, you cannot accept that what I'm saying is just my opinion, and may even be partly true... instead, you just call me a fool, if you object to what I am saying, then tell me why you object and not just tell me I'm wrong *refer to my first post...I think I've proved my point*.

Nik
Okay. Your opinion is based on a complete lack of knowledge or understanding. Your opinion contains no truth whatsoever, which you would know if you'd done any research at all, instead of just opening your mouth. Not only that, but you missed clear purpose and sarcasm in the post, and ended up with some weird inverted version in your brain. My own opinion was that you are a fool. You've only reinforced my theory, and it therefore stands.

RavenBlack
Mr Havok - read the blog entries from July 15th to July 19th (http://blog.ravenblack.net/archive200207.html) and with any luck you might understand why people have been playing with you. Though I wouldn't bet on it unless I were offered extremely favourable odds.

eperdu
Can I make a side-bet with an accumulator, on this, please?
