Well, I guess we're not as much better than America as I'd thought. Not even a week after the fact and my grandfather(normally noted for his moderate political views) is calling for a dictatorship. In the States, it took 3,000 deaths and two months for people to brush uncomfortably close to that conclusion, but I guess for some Canadians a single death and a couple of days are good enough.

Humans are stupid.  It doesn't matter where they're from.

Humans are also geniuses.  It doesn't matter where they're from.

Yeah. I guess Canada has a stronger exceptionalist streak than America ever did, and I bought into it as hard as anyone else. I know better now.

It's easy to feel superior living next to the United States.

At least until you start reading the Canadian history they didn't bother teaching anyone in high school.

They covered residential schools. Can you give me some other examples? I think I should look into this.

I dunno, that ebony boobplate looks pretty impractical to me. Though at least it does cover the whole body.

I am angry. ANGRY ABOUT ELVES.

That game above, the one that is apparently set in England, that looks AMAZING awesome!

Yeah, Dishonored is pretty great. It's one of the few steampunk things I like, if only because it doesn't gloss over the bleakness that comes with an industrial revolution.

Little Susie thinks the vomit-yellow and grave-mold-green particles floating amidst the deluge look almost magical in the dim light, against a backdrop of hissing downpour. She presses her little face to the window and stares intently at the mysterious motes dancing about, turning the rain to sloppy sludge as the specks infiltrated each drop. She stares until she perceives, in the lizard portion of her brain, a malevolent sentience in each tiny fleck. Until she can not turn away. Until she can no longer resist their piercing siren wail beyond the glass.

Little Susie flings open the window, letting in the rain. And the spores. Almost instantly she becomes coated in slime. And the spores waste no time getting to know their new food source. Seeping into her skin, the spores burrow. Deeper in, down into the meat and marrow of Little Susie. Burrow until they reached Little Susie's heart.

Now her pulse is in perfect sync with Tucson's. Now Little Susie is a part of something bigger. Older.

Little Susie smiles in the mirror. She smiles with her vomit-yellow lips until her grave-mold-green eyes spark with mirth.

Then she skips off to ask Mommy for permission to go play at a friend's house. Mommy will say yes.

Mommy will do anything Little Susie asks.

Or else.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEE!   :eek:

Nothing good ever happens in this thread...

On the plus side, this depressing truth is making us smarter.

Apparently not. We're still posting in it.

Dare I ask what a skeleton war is?

It is not A skeleton war, its THE skeleton war. :evilmad:

This statement clarifies nothing.

It's fucking metal, is what it is.

Is it NWOBHM, or is it like Death MEtal?

That depends on which side you're on.

Sorry, I had to record Cop Rock.

I think mine's leaking. There's sort of a fetid pus oozing out around the edges.

Goddammit, I just popped in for the sole purpose of being the first person to post a thread about this.

Suu, this whole "we actually live really really close to each other" thing isn't going to go peacefully for long if you keep STEALING MY BRAINWAVES.

Clearly, witchcraft is to blame.

WaffleGF is at the hospital with her father, who is in the final stages of bladder cancer.
I'm at home, with the dog, the rats and the rabbits. Feeling awfully helpless and lonesome.

That's too bad.

Living with my grandparents has brought all kinds of interesting surprises. For example, my grandparents are islamophobes. They aren't too fond of Sikhs in the RCMP either; apparently, mounties with turbans are a violation of Canadian identity. Whatever that is. They kept talking about it as "giving in" or "surrendering"; I wasn't aware that Canada was engaged in a holy war with Sikhs. Needless to say, I'm disappointed in them. They're usually intelligent, lucid, kind people, and my grandfather in particular is a retired history teacher who was alive during World War II. They should really know better.
