Yes, Jedi don't exist, they're a (universal) myth, everybody on Earth has seen Star Wars.
Clearly I haven't been paying attention...I didn't even know the plural of Jedi!

If you want to understand someone's present and future, study his/her past - this applies equally to individuals and nations. That certainly helps! But in a large part because that gives you insight into their mind! But I can make babies without studying biology. And I don't need history lessons to...

Re: Russia земля борца самбо

I am sorry you had bad marks in school but ignorance is no argument. I'm not! I also got bad marks in English Language and Literature. This is odd, since people say they like the way I write. Even with bad grades in English I'm still far too overqualified for, say, writing TV and movie subtitles, o...

A Marxist with a Scouse accent? I thought that Chico Marx had an Italian accent. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FNgIIHIXEAQzkaP?format=jpg&name=900x900 My parents sent me for elocution lessons when I was 13. They didn't want to see their children following the tribal tradition of making a living b...

Re: Stupid question of the day

A 21st Century Conundrum: Russians don’t seem to be too keen on homosexuality. Putin could easily be gay. Should western propaganda mention this in order to turn Russians against their leader? Or would this lead to blowback with western elites and academics? They are probably already throbbing to si...

Re: Russia земля борца самбо

These history lessons are irrelevant. To understand the leaders it’s all about mental health and ego. For the rest, it’s all about which “tribe” you are a member of (or want to be a member of).

Re: Russia земля борца самбо

Do all Russian men wax? Kat, Gamal? If I were putting together an army there are many categories of people I would not conscript. Top of the list would obvs be Guardian readers, but metrosexuals would be second.

Re: Russia земля борца самбо

You guys know soooooo much. History and geography were my worst subjects at school. That's probably why I'm nice to people of all nations, races and religions.

Re: Russia земля борца самбо

You're always wanting people assassinated! Anyone Left, Right or Centre. Referees, writers of catchy tunes, and I wouldn't want to be a judge on America's Got Talent.
