I was just in Germany. People looked happy, except man, those f*ckers do smoke a lot.

oops, this is what i was trying to paraphrase/steal:

Heaven: where the police are British, the cooks French, the mechanics German, the lovers Italian, and it is all organized and run by the Swiss.

Hell: where the police are German, the cooks British, the mechanics

I read a history of the EU, and I thought it was interesting that they let the Germans take over the planning for the launch of the Euro...and that the switching of currency of over a dozen nations went off without many problems, if any.

Garaba: Dont forget the Paid Maternity Leave.


Maternity AND paternity leave, I hope. Just talking with a coworker this morning whose wife is due in three weeks, and he lives about an hour away from the office. He's planning on taking just two weeks off, which means that if the wife gives birth in the next week, he's going to have to really rush to get home.

Here's the thing about American exceptionalism: if America were truly exceptional, we probably wouldn't feel compelled to mention at every possible juncture just how exceptional we are.

Subby's a bad man, getting my hopes up and all.

There's cheese that will rival French cheeses here in America. They just typically can't cross state lines if they aren't aged the right number of days or made with unpasteurized milk...

//Then there is Rogue River Blue Cheese.... nomnomnom.

Nah. There would still be creationist school boards -- but since all the creationists would be Muslim, opposing creationism would be decried as racist.

In keeping with tradition (HA!), the Bible-fetishists don't remember the timeline of the book.

When Josh brought the people over the Jordan and into Israel, it was ~400 years before Dave built them a Temple, which stood for another ~400. It's kind of a strange claim that "Israelites crossed the Jordan river...and what did we find? They weren't reminded, the next generation, they lost it in one generation", considering that the traditions that led to building the Temple (~400 years later, remember) were passed on through Joshua.

Ham: Evolution, millions of years, he naturalistic philosophy that permeates our education system, that's really the religion of this age to explain life without God. And much of our church, our church leaders, have adopted that religion, sadly, and compromised it with God's word words written by men with 2,000 years less human knowledge which was later edited by the Romans to assist in assimilated other cultures.

I know plenty of military and ex-military who have been stationed in Europe, and b*tch because in Europe, you can't tote guns anywhere you want. They like everything else though, mostly. Especially the beer, food and women.
 
2012-12-13 11:47:35 AM  
It is, it's an extremely important battle. Because, you know what, it only takes one generation to lose a culture. That's all it takes. And if you can capture one generation, you'll have the culture.

Speaks volumes, doesn't it?

Actually, it was Solly that built them the Temple. Dave wanted to, but Yah said no cuz Dave′s hands were too bloody from doing Yah′s dirty work.

Yeah, but in between that was the circling-the-drain cycle of the Judges.
"Fark off and leave us alone, God!"
"Okay."
"Waaah! Everything sucks! Save us, God, we're really sorry!"
"Okay."
"Great, thanks. Now fark off and leave us alone, God!"
"Okay."

Brussels was lovely when I was there a few years ago. And my cab driver to the hotel biatched about the Belgian government (or lack of it) during the entire ride, but at least he was entertaining.

I lived there in and out of the military. The ones that had the most problems were the "real 'murican" types that missed their guns and churches. They tended to view their host country as inferior. They also tended to go home in handcuffs.

You can get beer just as good, and food just as good, here. Just not at the Piggly-Wiggly. You have to actually *LOOK* for it, but you can find it easy enough.

Women? Well, a wise man once told me "It's all pink on the inside".

Elfich: Italian Food


The wife and I honeymooned in Venice and we were both underwhelmed by the food. I'm sure it's delicious in other areas but Venice? Forget about it. It's nothing but overpriced snack bars and shiatty service. We did our research and ate at a restaurant favored by locals and it was better, but still far from amazing. We eventually gave up on dining out and started grocery shopping and did much better. Particularly the seafood salads they sold at the local markets. It was fresh and delicious.
