yeah, the asses are good and all, and maybe the chaps help focus your attention there. however... the chaps are not sexy. check out those legs! oh wait, you can't because they're covered like these chicks work the carcass pile at a taxidermy shop. this looks like butcher erotica. very rural and kinda disturbing. too yeehaw for my taste. not even recreational yeehaw; the scary kind of yeehaw.

form-fitting chaps, maybe.
these chaps.... please, everyone understand, not all Texans and/or Americans are like Brad.

They're wearing chaps? Didn't notice.

Bah, I delved into something I would rather have not of gotten into.


Can we please have more pics of those wonderful cheerleaders? It's the only chance this thread has of being saved.

I don't think I've ever seen a politics topic that hasn't turned into this. I'm sure the UN will step in and nuke this thread eventually.

What does concern me is the implication that someone who chooses - not someone who is unable (there is a difference) - to muddle through your extremely verbose posts must be suffering from some type of disorder. This is simply untrue, and that is where you paint with broad brush strokes. As per your suggestion, I usually do choose not to read your posts until something sticks out at me such as your accusation.

If you'd like to engage me in my lack of knowledge, please feel free to do so; however your current discussion does not hold my interest (usually politics do not) so I will not participate in it. Also, my lack of choosing to participate does not indicate a lack of knowledge or agreement with the person you are arguing against. It simply demonstrates that I have no wish to engage in the conversation.

If you'd like to discuss other issues such as education, I'm open for debate.

I respect your opinions on the intricacy of disc golf, and I'm similarly impressed by the obvious command you and your countrymen have of the English language (assuming you were taught it as a second language), but again, let's not accuse others of having disorders simply because we do not share your love of the written word.


It's all good!

I do agree with you that education is something best gotten and with quality so it the conclusion that it should be discussed is something we share.

I think you misunderstood my meaning with the list :-) I didn't mean that people automatically have a disorder or don't give a toss. I just wanted to point out that that kind of outlook can occur since all of the things I mentioned are known to science. And aren't rare IRL.

I know a lot about information overflow. I'm just writing to a public interested in things so that they hopefully have the motivation to sift through a little more detail than you get from mostly uninformed journalists I don't see me as some kind of messiah whose every word should be read religiously :-) Definitely choosing not being unable to write complicatedly and wordey. It's a nice joking subject though. I wrote to Zamson in another thread something like: Wow you got wordy on me :-)

Where's the similar response from Americans to the continued expose of Bradley about his lack of knowledge of history? And being long winded about it?


Attack the man.
Repeat the mantra.

What started my posting was that I responded to comments attacking US efforts in Iraq. In these comments the US efforts were made to be no better than Saddam Hussein (I found the comments offensive in the extreme). I then showed these comments to be exaggerated in the extreme to the point of being ridiculous.

Then I made the point that the US efforts in Iraq are not that dissimilar from the efforts that the US made in Europe following WW2 and all during the period of the Cold War. As a result, countries like Finland have DIRECTLY benefited from the toil of the US taxpayer and our flawed capitalist system.

If you want to use my lack of Finnish history (I would hope you know more Finnish history than I do) as a distractive tactic to avoid admitting the fact that your entire continent has basked in the sun provided by the US military for decades (paid for by the capitalist US taxpayer), go ahead...

I think I made my point.


I had hoped for Bradley to get it but he seems to require a wake up call about his thought processes and the ways he adopts ideas. I had hoped I wouldn't have to return to history so this really is my last charge at trying to make him not look bad in the future. Sorry about the return to history everyone else :-( Argh! This ain't fun!

Bradley your points were made and not supported by reality :-( That's why there's been so much posting against your points. In short people have been telling you that you've been duped.

With what I know about war it seems to me that you're defending bad apples with bad apples. Us in Iraq. You're free to do so and think so. Don't wonder if you're met with differing opinions. Even more so with the incompetence of Europe. In many areas. Like defending itself from the SU. I think that you've adopted a lot of propaganda as the truth.

Now who said flawed capital system? Who named all Europeans as socialists? Can't you defend your position without resorting to name calling?

The US doesn't have a capitalist system FYI. Market economy and quartal economy are the terms used by scientists but isn't mafia governments more appropriate all over the world? Haven't checked but most of western Europe has right wing governments. Finland does.

In your mind the SU was a juggernaut. I say it was a giant with wooden legs. Especially after WW2 before the next generation was born since their people would've revolted if war against the west would've happened. The Soviets were spent psychologically after WW2. Stalin knew that. He wasn't happy about it because he wanted world domination and even he understood that the Soviets had shot their load. It's not the weapons that do all of the fighting. You need the trigger man and Stalin knew well what happened in 1917. Being a part of the revolution. The people in the SU knew exactly what war is after WW2 when every family had lost members. The soldiers were so sickened that they'd not been able to fight. According to official Soviet studies.

Hungary... :-) You go ask them. Do you really think western European countries are so silly to help a communist country in their revolt (led by communists minded nationalists) and challenging nuclear armed SU? The US didn't despite your president promising support. Cough cough. Do you think western European countries wouldn't rally together in case of Soviet invasion to the west since no government here is that naive over Soviets that they wouldn't know that if one is attacked every other country will be too? Knowing how Stalin thinks and has acted. Finland probably wasn't considered important enough to go to war for though. Occupation was a threat but it wouldn't have been a cake walk like never before. Finland has stood toe to toe against Russians/Soviets without outside influence militarily before. With Sweden occupied a lot of western areas of SU before SU to Ukraine for a while...

Setting Tumpsi straight with facts in the name of fairness and truth: Finland won at most a hollow victory in WW2. Militarily Finland didn't win at all. Surviving is a victory despite losing the war but on the battlefields despite stopping Soviet advances Finland was forced to sue for peace. Eventually line swould've broken and the army beaten. Guerilla war would've been the only option but maybe not that effective to drive the Soviets out. Look at 1905 Bobrikov's assasination didn't make the Russians go away. Stopping Soviets militarily in 44 was temporary had the soviets decided to commit to occupation. Luckily the price for attempting got too high and time ran out. Finnish economy didn't survive and there was famine so Finland sued for peace. Timing mattered because 44 results were due to German food and weapons supplies that wouldn't have existed in 45 so the only time to avoid risking another Soviet attack for which Finns weren't equipped and fed was to get out ASAP. If the Soviets didn't have to rush to Berlin but could've kept the pressure Finland would've lost on the battlefields eventually and nobody knows how that would've ended but occupation is very likely. Finnish lines broke a couple of times but the Soviets didn't realize it or capitalize it.

Just like in Winter War Finnish lines were broken and no reserves left in the Karelian isthmus on the day of the armistice. A regiment of Finns was surrounded basically without ammo on ice in the Gulf of Finland most guys wet from falling through the ice thanks to Soviet arty. Cracked ice. Cold winter day so most guys would've died of frost bites or pneumonia even without artillery or Soviet attacks. The place of the breach was such that the Soviets would've only needed to march forward to surround the Finns at the isthmus and game over. Don't fall victim to propaganda.

Hmm....

Okay, time to have some fun here, and seeing as how there are some Finns on this board (I'm 1/2 Finnish, my mom is full, her grandparents emigrated from Finland).

Do you guys actually eat Lutefisk? I've had it at my grandparent's house a few times and I can barely get down a few bites before I start gagging!

Although, I cannot get enough of my Grandma's Pulla bread!! Mmm, its so good when its straight from the oven and onto my plate. Then followed up by a sauna trip in the day.... I miss saunas, there are not many in California....

Let's get ready to rumble.

There should be more saunas in California? HELL YES!

People should realize that every country writes their history books differently? Hell, even the different branches of the US Armed Forces write their accounts of history differently, why shouldn't different countries write their histories differently?

PCs are better than Macs? Hmm, I am really liking my Toshapple at the moment (my Toshiba laptop that has an apple sticker over the "Toshiba")

Brand loyalty (to disc companies) is silly? Hell yes, throw what works, be it Innova, Discraft, Gateway, Millennium...etc. As Feynman said "What do you Care What Other People Think?"

James Gleick wrote:A few days later he [Feynman] was eating in the student cafeteria when someone tossed a dinner plate into the air—a Cornell cafeteria plate with the university seal imprinted on one rim—and in the instant of its flight he experienced what he long afterward considered an epiphany. As the plate spun, it wobbled. Because of the insignia he could see that the spin and the wobble were not quite in synchrony. Yet just in that instant it seemed to him—or was it his physicist's intuition?—that the two rotations were related. He had told himself he was going to play, so he tried to work the problem out on paper. It was surprisingly complicated, but he used a Lagrangian, least-action approach and found a two-to-one ratio in the relationship of wobble and spin. That was satisfyingly neat. Still, he wanted to understand the Newtonian forces directly, just as he had when he was a sophomore taking his first theory course and he provocatively refused to use the Lagrangian approach. He showed Bethe what he had discovered.
But what's the importance of that? Bethe asked.
It doesn't have any importance, he said. I don't care whether a thing has importance. Isn't it fun?
It's fun, Bethe agreed. Feynman told him that was all he was going to do from now on—have fun.


We should all thank Feynman.

For those that missed it, a disc, like a dinner plate, will wobble in a 2:1 ratio with the spin of the disc :) Of course, our wobbles are all really small cause we don't dig OAT!!!!! :lol:

Terve! I've heard enough of lutefisk from my mom and others that I'll never try it :-) There's little that compares to fresh pulla but it ain't bread. Pulla means bun. Not the back cheek :-)

But there are even more suspicious foodstuffs here than fish. Mämmi and blood pancake. I'm not a mämmi fan but with enough sugar and milk I can tolerate it. Blood pancakes are yummy just like blood sausage. A specialty in Tumpsi's home town. Tapola rules as a manufacturer of blood sausage. Lingonberry with blood sausages and pancakes make them even better.

Non suspect foods are Karelian pirogs and bread cheese. Bread chees with cloudberry or cranberry jam... Drool. Cranberry jam is good too. All of these jams plus strawberry jam with ice cream... Lettu or flat pancake with jams(strawberry preference) and maybe ice cream too... My waist is widening thinking of these :-)

Sauna to frozen lake with a hole cut in it and sauna again=fun! Lacking a lake rolling in the snow.
