Quote from: Jacob on September 08, 2022, 06:34:27 PMSame with Denmark & Sweden. Apparently ~30 wars and we're definitely "sibling nations".
Yeah - while I'm pleased at everyone's friendly relations with their family, being mates isn't quite what a sibling is in my mind. It's more there's a lot of shared history, a fair bit of competitiveness but, as Jos says, having their back when it comes down to it - but that may also be projection on my part  :ph34r:
Let's bomb Russia!

Quote from: Sheilbh on September 08, 2022, 04:51:39 PMAlso reading Macron's statement can't help but shake the feeling he'd quite like to be a monarch - or remember his analysis about the "figure of the king" being the great "absentee" in French politics. There was a Le Monde column - perhaps on that sibling/neighbourly contrast - of Macron attempting to fill the royal void in France, while the Queen helped make Britain forget the anachronism of monarchy.

To be fair, as French President Macron is the Co-Prince of Andorra.

"Woke" is now almost exclusively used by those who seek to deride it, those who chafe at the activism from which it sprang. Opponents to the idea are seeking to render it toxic. They use it to stand in for change itself, for evolution, for an accurate assessment of history and society that makes them uncomfortable and deflates their hagiographic view of American history.

Dairy Queen should change their name to capitalize on the free press
Being lazy is bad; unless you still get what you want, then it's called "patience".
Hubris must be punished. Severely.

Quote from: Barrister on September 08, 2022, 12:57:57 PMYou know what - with Ukraine making advances in the war, and with Her Majesty passing away, I think today is the day to take down the Ukrainian flag and put up the Canadian one again (at half mast of course).
Keep the Ukrainian flag up, they need the spirit more than the Royals.

But that's just it - I don't think they do right now.  They're kicking Russian ass right now.
Lot's of them are getting hurt and maimed by Russian artillery.  That's a real plight.  Meanwhile, Charles III has 500 millions in his bank account.
I don't do meditation.  I drink alcohol to relax, like normal people.

Glad you are back with us.  But you do not have to wait for such extraordinary events to come back around, you know? ;)

Haendel is nice, btw. :)

In clownworld they can even be pregnant

That said: never thought it would happen, Charles becoming king that is. It was as if the queen would be here forever.
