Phony_Soldier: I have to stop reading fark. One day I'm going to get Anne Frank and Anne Sullivan confused.


Anne Sullivan was a teacher and friend of Laura Ingles Wilder who wrote a book called "The Miracle Worker" about how she taught Laura's sister Mary to read braille. Mary was blind like Anne Frank but could hear. It can get a bit confusing.

Rev. Skarekroe: I wouldn't worry about it.  The Japanese don't have a history of associating with Nazis.


Well, to be fair, the Japs were allied with the Germans during the war, and that girl was clearly an enemy of their friend.

/moral relativism or something

She was the author of a syndicated advice column.  I am not sure where you get your BS information.

Seems there is a lot of confusion here about who Anne Frank was. She surely wasn't deaf, dumb or blind.
Maybe a little "dumb ugly" looking.

What a way to go.

You escape the Nazis in a plane and then crash the plane because you are deaf & blind.

Tragic, really.

That's kind of what you get when you power your plane with the Radium you discovered.

Instead of vandalizing them should have just hid them in the wall.

I hate Anne Frank and her stupid Atlas Shrugged book...

You are confused.  It was Interview with a Vampire that she wrote.

Which was impressive that she had time to do that, and take cute pictures of babies dressed up as plants.

She flies by sense of smell, obviously.

I dont understand the obsession with her diarrhea, though.

So what if someone burned a bunch of hot pink and rainbow notebooks and binders that were popular in the nineties.  Those things were garish and no one will miss them.

I thought that was Rand Paul. And it still just amazes me that Anne's nephew Barney got elected to Congress.

Well, her dog did. Course correction for the local biatch in heat may have caused navigation errors.

Harry Freakstorm: Sorry, but as a veteran of Battlefield 1942, I can tell you that the Nazis gave every almost every Japanese soldier a Panzerschreck.



Is that German for wedgie?

Chakro: She was only deaf and blind. She could speak but was hard to understand.


In this case, they actuall could have.used her around.  Water was the first word she learned, right?
 
2014-02-21 03:15:40 PM  
Well, she would never have gone blind if she hadn't messed with all that radioactive crap.
 
2014-02-21 03:18:00 PM  
Very strange at one point ( to the best of my knowledge) the book was very popular in Japan  at one time.  If  i had to guess this was done by one of those in Japan who refuse to acknowledge the reality of the atrocities there forebears committed in world war II.

Mind why they chose a book tat has nothing to do with Japan in world II I have no clue, the one thing i can see is this particular book would get the act noticed and the media would pick it up.

And she doesn't talk much about her singing career -- only when she is in her home country -- Canada. She feels more free to write there too.
 
2014-02-21 03:42:16 PM  
I don't understand how she had time to write a book with all the pitchers of water she was delivering to the cannon crews and the wounded and dying.
 
2014-02-21 03:50:40 PM  
Apparently the Japanese think that she should have sat in the back of the bus.

Everyone does understand that Anne Frank was a Jew that died in the holocaust and not Helen Keller?
