Happy Guy Fawkes day!

Is that something you tack “Happy” on to? O.o

Anyhow, I figured the other thread was getting a bit stale, so it was time for a new one. How’s everyone doing? I’m getting frustrated at the lack of paying editing work, since the magazine I work for pays less than $100 a month. Not that I’ll quit working for them, because I really enjoy it, but it certainly doesn’t pay all my bills! Other than that, though, things are going okay around here. smile

As far as Guy Fawkes goes… I find it very amusing that, after the movie V for Vendetta, so many ‘anarchist’ groups (Anonymous in particular) have adopted the Guy Fawkes mask as their emblem. In reality, the guy was trying to blow up Parliment so the Church could take over. I’ve even had folks argue that Guy Fawkes was trying to start an anarchist revolution, blah blah… “No, he was trying to put the Church in charge.” “What?” “Yep. You’re praising a religious conservative.”

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

Yeah, it does seem a bit odd that Guy Fawkes Day is a thing.  Although “Happy We Tried to Blow Up Parliament and Failed Day” doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.

Happy Terrorist Day!!!!

Or is it the day they foiled the terrorists?

Still, it was a cool, if slightly ridiculous movie.  I mean, who could possibly believe Guy Fawkes was still alive after all those centuries?

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

Like everything else that has changed over the years it sounds like a huge party.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

Even Facebook’s a bit quiet these days.  I seem to be getting more fan pages in my news feed than friends.

The world is slowing down and our lives are catching up with us.  Must be old age setting in or something.  At least it probably is in my case.  Not sure about all you young folks around here.  wink
