I dislike Richard Dawkins
I've never noticed the undercurrent of anti-Americanism that runs through GTU before. either I wasn't paying attention or it wasn't as overt as it is now.
The problem isn't that the issues aren't valid, they are. Idiots comprise a large section of our govt and population. The problem is that the Americans on GTU aren't those idiots. But we get pushed into defensive positions for being American. Just now for instance this was almost an entirely different post. I wanted to tell Six and Burton to fuck off. Six, partially because he crawled up his own ass awhile back and, deciding that he liked the smell, opted to never climb back out.
I'll take it, honestly. Five years of working in the non-profit world has given me some interesting insight into why the world is broken. It's my experience not yours admittedly. You claim not to be one of "those" Americans yet what have you done to change your country's policies? You're probably in a hurry (to go the gym) or need to talk to your wife (about funding doctors in the DRC) or want to look at the website (of supplying oral rehydration packets to children who are dying at a rate so high that by the time you go home and look at the website another 2,000 will have died of dehydration). It's cool, man. Lotsa talking about how everything is cool actually makes the world cooler. There's nothing wrong with the US allowing their citizens to murder each other wholesale with weapons produced cheaply and then sold on the black market so Sudanese rebels can kill childen. It's actually fine that US schools teach children that there's validity to creationism and export these ideas to Uganda so that gay men can be decapitated. I see no problem in waving little flags with stars and stripes (or maple leaves) all over them to remind my children that when bombs start falling on other humans that they wave a different flag.
You aren't those Americans? You are just as much as I am one of those Canadians. We're all the problem, Americans just happen to be more of the problem.
Sixy, this is the height of arrogance to presume absolutely anything about my life as an American. You actually managed Smashy levels of idiocy several times. You can't possibly think that your work in the non-profit sector for a whopping 5 years in any way qualifies you as an expert in anything, can you? "Why the world is broken?" are you serious? do you really think you have the slightest idea as to why the world is what it is? What have you done to make the world a better place? Is this the extent of James Booker? self righteous pedantry? Your attitude solves nothing. makes nothing better. saves exactly zero lives and yet you come on a forum of people who considered you a friend and have the audacity to make assumptions about their world view. It takes a lot to offend me but your faux moral outrage and unwarranted condescension has managed. Confuckingrats you absolute prat.
Come back and talk to us when you've actually spent 5 years in Uganda doing absolutely anything for anyone.

Im still with Will on this.
But ultimately it depends on what you want out of it.
What i will say is as follows........... If blues doesnt fancy the girl at all..........which seemed to be the main criticsim of my earlier observation..... Then how the fuck did this get to 3 dates? That completely changes the equation. Thats blues just being an inconsiderate cunt. You just dont do THREE DATES if you arnt attracted to the girl. Irrespective of your indecision she has turned up for 3 dates............she doesnt do that with zero expectation. She doesnt do that out of the goodness of her heart......she hopes for something out of that. To say......."you dont fancy her".........
To my mind thats worse than just turning up fucking her and never calling
