<< Oh dear Texmaster, I thought you were an OK kinda guy until now. Clearly we all make mistakes
If thats an apology its a pretty pathetic one. I can only chalk it up to your "social superiority".
I had to apologize today to Nemesis77:
You are abolutely right I did agree with him
Thats how you apologize my socially inept little friend.
<< You're being logically inconsistent. Provide a direct quotation and identify its juvenile elements.
You want quotes? No problem!
European social conditions and public services make the US look backward at the moment anyway
Childish and ignorant doesn't even Begin to explain this one. How about another?
As for your sadly typically blinkered American views on culture and intelligence, you clearly haven't appreciated the delights of Paris, London, Rome, Cologne, Oxford, or Venice.
This one is just childish arrogance. And another?
Learn this, and stop being so damn parochial. Look this word up in the Oxford English Dictionary online if your cultural superiority doesn't extend to include polysyllabic words.
Your liberal arrogance is once again on display for all to see. What's sad is you probably are only barely aware of it. Its a pathetic display of arrogance coupled with childish snobbery that makes you look not only intellectually inferior but socially inferior.
<< By implication, you're suggesting your seniority means your opinions are necessarily more worthwhile than mine.
No, what I'm saying is that you don't have a clue how to treat people. Arrogant and ignorant displays of superiority dont cut it in the real world. Only experience will help you understand this.
<< Fine, OK, whatever makes you happy; quality of argument and substance are far more important IMHO. You're yet to pass an erudite comment.
Well lets see, you ran away from my comments about the true state of Europe's population, you ran away from my analysis of Europe's governements and how your idea of Europe regaining military dominance in the world with the current governments is ludicrus.
Its hard to debate with you if you aviod my arguements
And my arguements are so simple even you can understand. The arrogance you display here (well documented) is embarassing to say the least. Only time in the real world will humble you enough to realize this.
<< I was responding to jingoistic comments made earlier.
LOL Oh the "he started it" defense. How old are you?
<< I'm sorry for being a 'moron', albeit one studying Classics at Oxford University with 5 straight-A A-levels (harder than SATs) and an S-level (much harder than an SAT).
ROFLOL!!!! Oh my what an elitest SNOB! LOL
<< I'll give you my IP for a IM if you want proof of Oxford. I think if we read our respective posts it's pretty clear by my language there's at least a small element of education here. From yours however, intellectual development seems to have stopped rather early in life. Convince me I'm wrong, go on.
See thats the difference between being smart and being idiotic. I have nothing to prove to you. You would be very hard pressed to match my master degrees in Commmunication and Body Language. And my salery with my toys reflects that very well.
That tonka toy computer of yours is a glorious symbolic statement to your ignorance and superiority complex.
<< I believe you have a term something along the lines of intellectually-limited 'redneck'.
More like intellectually and socially challenged Snobs in Europe
LOL I can just hear your nose getting higher in the air.
<< We have a potentially interesting study in its demonstration here. We ignore the lessons of history at our peril. Then again, maybe Henry Ford was simply promulgating an ingrained American view when he said 'History is more or less bunk'
And how does America fit the Roman Empire thesis of yours? The Roman Empire was ruled by an Emperor (with the Senate playing a very small role), conquered lands and mixed with the local conquered peoples to keep desention at a minumum. Romans burned Greek Libraries, treated women as property, and bought and sold slaves. Now please use that intellectual noggin and explain your comparison. I can't wait to hear this.
<< Texmaster, you really are demonstrably a f***ing idiot. I don't really care if I get banned for writing this. This conversation with you is utterly unfulfilling. I have better things to do.
Whats this? The snob stoops to this "redneck's" humble level? LOL!!! Your attitude here is priceless. You are a shining example of European arrogance and childish ignorance.
<< Dear other people: going on this thread's evidence, I apologise for my strident and seemingly bigoted views. Refer to my other posts to see I'm usually quite calm. However, indefensible ignorant nationalism really, really irritates me, and unfortunately we seem to be witnessing a few examples. Yes, I can be accused of this too, but they are in response to what I see as intolerable mistruths and blatant tub-thumping. That is inarguable from the evidence.
Don't worry, no one is prepared to elect you to any office here! LOL
Learn this: Booksmarts are not enough in the real world. Social graces, manners, and diplomacy will get you farther ahead than 10 years at Oxford.
