davknight comments on May 30, 2019:
I once spent a few months observing the goings-on in a Pentacostal church, in a small Alabama town. Amongst the first things I noticed were where people sat. The rich folks always occupied the pews in the left front, where they could be observed picking their noses, balling up their boogers, and flicking them. (Something that reminded me of eighteenth-century English magistrates,who would flick their boogers at criminal defendents). Another oddity was that the teenagers clustered in the back pews, where they could try their luck at flirting with one another. The pews in front of them were occupied by the single adults, looking to hook up. In the right front pews were the residents of local homeless shelters, where the entire congregation could observe, and self-righteously 'fawn' over them. Just behind them sat the holy-roller performer types, who would periodically jump out in the aisles, and begin babbling in 'tongues', or fall to the floor in faux epileptic 'fits'.

Pelosi wants to impeach Trump's ass as badly as most Democrats do. But she is apparently waiting until they have a preponderance of evidence against him, and the majority of the Senate on their side. With Trump's propensity for sticking his feet in his mouth, that shouldn't take long!

Out of one human pairing, you get an average of 2,000 offspring, over 12 generations (240 years). A hundred humans equals fifty human pairings. So, multiply fifty by 2,000. It wouldn't take long in historic time, for them to bring us back up to current levels of over-population!

davknight comments on May 30, 2019:
Once upon a time, an anthropologist was visiting a tribe of New Guineans, and got to observe a 'witch-doctor' treating his patients. The patient would lay down on a straw mat, and the shaman would dance around them, chanting incantations, and shaking his skull rattles. Afterwards, the anthropologist asked the shaman if he thought his treatment actually worked. No, the shaman replied. But so long as the patient BELIEVED it had done him some good, that was all that mattered.
What is your perception of Memorial Day in the USA?
davknight comments on May 30, 2019:
It was Abraham Lincoln who created this 'holiday'. He did so partly to honor the nation's military dead. And partly to appease 'God', and give 'God's' sanction to the bloody civil war then in progress. Like most people of his day, Lincoln was a very superstitious/religious man. And he believed that the reason the war was dragging on was because 'God' was angry at the country's 'sinfullness'. This is why he also made 'Thanksgiving' a national 'holiday'. Though he thought of it more as a 'national day of prayer' (thinking that if everybody prayed hard, 'God' would make the war end). Neither day was intended as an excuse for people to engage in drunkeness , and gluttony.

In that way, you will develop a more holistic view of this round, round World you live in!

davknight comments on May 28, 2019:
I once drove through the immediate aftermath of a tornado. On one side of the road, every single telephone pole had been snapped off at the base, and were laying on their sides, in a nice, neat row, for the space of about a mile. On the opposite side of the road, was a 70-car freight train, laying on its side, with every car in perfect alignment. It looked like a little kid had got bored with his toy train set, and kicked it over!

In 1702, a Virginian was visiting a London shop. The shopkeeper said to him "By your accent, I can tell you come from one of the colonies!". The Virginian nodded, and told the shopkeeper where he was from. I found this interesting because this was less than five generations after the founding of Jamestown. And already, a peculiarly colonial accent had emerged. It got me wondering how, supposing the Chinese are the first to establish a Martian colony, how long it would take for a peculiarly 'Martian'-sounding dialect of Mandarin Chinese to evolve?

davknight comments on May 21, 2019:

davknight comments on May 20, 2019:
'Liberty' was the most common image on U.S. coins, from the 1790s, through the nineteenth-century. The French painter, Eugene Delacroix, used her as his inspiration for "Liberty Leading the People". Another Frenchman felt inspired to feature her in his famous "Statue of Liberty". It's only when we hit the twentieth-century, that the U.S. Mint began replacing her image with that of dead Presidents! Also, the 'Indian Cent' featured 'Liberty' (in an eagle-feather headdress).

davknight comments on May 18, 2019:
Back in the 1980's, the (then) leader of the CPUSA was a guy named Gus Hall. He decided it was a waste of time, to run candidates on a Communist Party ticket, and that the thing to do was to infiltrate the Democratic Party.Which they have been busy at ever since. Meanwhile, the 'Righties' have decided on the same idea. Only they have been infiltrating the Republican Party. So now, we have a Party of the Pretty Stupid, infiltrated by 'Lefties', and a Party of the Extremely Stupid, infiltrated by 'Righties'. So, for the average American blue-collar jamoke, the choice boils down to the candidates of the Pretty Stupid, or the candidates of the Extremely Stupid. (Some choice, huh?). Now, we are engaged in a great civil war, between the Party of the Pretty Stupid Rich, vs. the Party of the Extremely Stupid Rich. Third parties don't stand a rat's chance here. You are right about American Lefties being wussies. They are mostly from bourgeois, or petit-bourgeois class background. So, they tend to be very much like their rich parents. Lenin might have called them "useful idiots". But I consider them "useless idiots"! Also bear in mind that what are called "leftists" here, are really just spoiled hipster-liberals. And, as Bill Heywood once pointed out: "A liberal is a man who leaves the room when the fight starts".The American working class has no party of its own. And very little in the way of class-consciousness. Even if they did, the 'Lefties' are bound and determined to take away their firearms. Which may be why so many of them are under the spell of the Party of the Extremely Stupid!

And yep. Southern English is one of the four main dialects of American English. The others are, General American, New England (" Bahston"), and Northeastern (" I gotta walk my doag"). Believe it or not, there are eleven sub-dialects of Southern English.
