Red, one thing you blokes do well is pub culture. You talk about real issues, while getting dafted and shafted. We talk about sports and our jobs. Part of the secret plan, obviously.

Well, I've a good documentary to share with everyone, courtesy of GoogleTechTalks. It is a film on the nature of interactive fiction, its History and how Text Adventure Games influenced both the industry and the players/readers:

Frank mate, we tend to talk about a lot of subjects in pubs. The most popular (certainly at the end of the night) tends to be "Toot".

Talking toot is of course a great Brittish tradition. We are good at it. You may even have noticed this from some of my posts.

Cynic it could be worse. I have just posted a video on the main Pav that waxes lyrical about the railway... Jeez I must be getting old or really maudlin.

If I am being honest though I do love Scotlands railways. And especially Glasgow Central. I just hate admitting to it. It feel to much like i am betraying my working class, union-man sensabilities.

Our recent trip exposed some serious flaws in the Italian railway system.

No, I don't believe this qualifies as "news" in any sense of the word.

:P

I made a short trip to Italy years and years ago. The last thing I read before leaving the country was "Sorry for the inconvenience". It seemed incredibly apprpriate.

Ok time for some nationalistic type humor.


What's the difference between heaven and hell?

In heaven-

The English great you at the door.

The Germans are in charge of planning.

The French are in charge of the cuisine.

The Italians are in charge of the entertainment.

In hell-

The French great you at the door.

The Italians are in charge of planning.

The English are in charge of the cuisine.

The Germans provide the entertainment.

I heard a variation of that on a post card not long ago; this version's more succinct.

Most Americans would ask Barber if he met Chef Boyardee.

Frank

Why haven't you bothered moving to an Eastern Bloc nation?

I can only speak for myself, but I'm getting really sick and tired of all this backhanded and surreptitious insulting of everyone on this board by your snarky little remarks. Remember when you mention Americans, most of the regulars on this board are.

Will you either shut the hell up, or tell us how you are actively, not passive agressively, doing something to change those things that upset you?

I encourage Frank to move South, specifically Venezuela. Go to work building the revolution!
:D Test those "pie in the sky" ideals in a practical real world circumstances.
