Wasn't Helen Keller the chick in "The Matrix" that told Neo sometimes there is no bent spoon?


No, she was that chick with the big forehead from 'As Good As It Gets'.  Loved her in Quarterback Princess.

Chakro: 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.


I knew that - it was my attempt at a joke.

Anne Frank wasn't deaf, blind, or dumb. (Also the correct term is mute not dumb)
You might be confusing her with Helen Keller (who was just deaf and blind).
Unless of course, I'm missing a joke. If I am can someone tell me?

Hrm, we have Japan, the most infamously racist country in the world with a severe combination of unsupportable macho fantasies and general worldwide loss of influence in recent years.

We have books by a helpless little Jewish girl.

Yup, pretty inevitable.

I'm afraid you're mistaken. We are all correct. It is you who is woefully ignorant of the great historical figures and the intellectual debates we have about them and their accomplishments. I still recall the time we talked about Orville and Wilbur inventing the turn signal. Or the amazing moment when Lance Armstrong walked on the moon.

I don't know if you all heard, and this is recent news, Ann Frank was found on a small desert island. She was convinced WW 2 was still going on, and refused too believe peace had come after 40 years of war. General Fransisco Franco was called in, her former commanding officer, to convince her it was over and to return to her homeland of Canadia.

Oh bullshiat.

First I'll think you'll find that America is the most "infamously racist" country in the world.

The Japanese did absolutely horrific things to people during war; acts that were enabled, but not caused, by their contempt for non-Japanese.  Today, they're mainly the kind of racist that's bred out of isolation and ignorance, not out of hate.


Also, just because Americans are obsessed with Jews, don't assume the rest of the world is.  In Asia they couldn't be of less consequence.  There is literally not a single reason for an Asian (even the Muslim ones) to give a shiat about Jews either way.  Even the most xenophobic Japanese person would give Jews 0 seconds of thought per year.  Japanese racists mainly hate other Asians.

This sounds like the work of someone with a form of obsessive psychosis.  Which the morally superior America has none of, of course.

Especially since they were always goose-stepping and singing everywhere they went.  And since she was blind, she didn't see all the torches.

Why she didn't take Marie Curie's offer to fly her to safety is one of history's greatest unanswered questions.
