brantgoose: Doesn't anybody proof read any more instead of just letting Spell Checker do its stuff willy-nilly, any old whey?


I've read a distressing number of arguments for dialing back spelling and grammar training in education, because "spelling / grammar check will take care of it anyway."

The rate at which we're becoming Wall-E is alarming.

vernonFL: 'Jihad' is a relatively common name, but for anyone to wear a shirt like that is stupid AW trolling.


Seriously?  No, seriously, seriously?  Does it have another "meaning" as a name, or are they essentially named "Holy War".

Completely serious - never heard that it was ever used as a name.

Jihad doesn't necessarily mean war or violence. Overcoming alcoholism could be considered jihad. I think it just means "struggle".

Obviously this nutjob means violence, though.

Probably left over from the French Revolution calendar.  You know: Messidor, Thermidor, Fructidor, Humidor, Slamthedor, Spertember, Squishtember, Splashtember, Nivose, Pluvoiose, Ventos, Mentos, Gotchernose.

Nice. J'ai ri.

That was Osama's biggest victory!

He planted hundreds demolition bombs in Towers 1, 2 and 7, and Bush was so embarrassed that he could never admit it.

muck4doo: Where are the usual idiots who derp that we need to be more like Europe?


How about this? The French wisely ban giving children offensive names. In the US you can name a boy "Susan" if you like and he'll be tragically ruined for life as the boy named Sue. Untold numbers of children have ridiculous names or common names that are spelled in some far-fetched way because their stupid parents wanted to be "original" or fashionable. You even let people name their children after idiot celebrities such as Britney Spears. If you name a child "Cindi", she will spell her name with a heart instead of a dot over the "i" and thus become a stripper with a heart of gold. It's cruel and unusual punishment to name a child with the wrong name. Read Tristram Shandy.

Names influence your life chances. If I lived in the UK, I might be named Alf or something equally stupid and what chance would I have? Might as well become a TF from the get-go.

There are stupid individuals in Europe, even stupid laws and customs, political parties, religions, etc., but Europe is not inherently stupid per se. The French, in particular, tend to think things through. In the USA, there are plenty of smart, good and wise people, but you have a "Florida" tag and could just as easily have one for each state and territory, including "Puerto Rico" on account of mass or official stupidity. The same is true of Canada. We could easily have an Alberta tag or a Quebec tag.

Poor little Jihad is going to have problems when he goes to school. He'd be better off named Jim or Bambi but I assume those names are both illegal in France and a good thing too.

You should hear how the French pronounce some English names.

If the kid was named Jim it would be pronounced the way it is pronounced by the cast of the British radio  Goon Show of the 1950s. Jeeeeem!

Let me rephrase... I think they need a stronger version of the first amendment. What speech my British husband calls 'inciting racial hatred' I call 'skinnyhead'.

French laws are not American laws. French courts are not American courts.


I'm just trying to wrap my head around a justice system where you can be acquitted, and then the state can say 'no wait, we take that back.  guilty'.

That seems...rather stupid.

This doesn't have anything to do with the 1st ammendment anyway.  Perhaps even less so, as it happened in France.

Still, in this day and age, people assume that they are protected across the board from anything they say because of the 1st ammendment.  That's simply not true.  It may protect you from being locked up for shooting your mouth off about the President being a jerk.  But it won't protect you from threatening to shoot the President.
In any case, you are allowed to give your kid a stupid name.  Whatever...  It's your kid.  But dressing the kid in purposely offensive garb and sending him to school is not protected by any law.  That's damned close to child abuse!

It is illegal to be an a-hole in France? The good news is that the U.S. is likely to lose its title as the country with the highest percentage of its population in prison.

The only crime she should be charged with is reckless endangerment of a minor. People whose lives were personally affected by the terrorist attacks might not be able to control their emotions when encountered with that even on a kid

At any rate if someone slugged her in the face for doing that with her son I don't think any court would convict them. There's trolling and then there's provoking potential violence

Some of the bombs even bounced from the twins into #7.

I'm always confused by the goodies who think violence is acceptable when THEY are offended, but fark everyone else. For all we know, this woman had a husband/brother/son/cousin killed some time during the last decade while our troops were blowing up the Middle East. She has to have some pretty strong anti-US feelings to put that kind of shirt on a kid. But naw, I'm sure it has nothing to do with the US demonization of Muslims since 9/11. She just had that shirt made because she's a freedom-hating troll. Keeing things really simple like this makes it easy for me.

Lots of English names mean something similar.  Duncan, Earl, Edith (the Old English Eadgyð literally translates as "blessed war"), Humbert, Humphrey, Ivor, Kemp, and Ryder all refer to war or warriors.

(Oddly enough, the name Warwick has nothing to do with either wars or wicks.  It means "dam farm.")
