Re: Favourite movie scenes

utterly off topic, but may apply, per "computer games" the last 20 yrs. prior - when pc-ers were of the "elite" we had a few games with heart, like Homeworld(and its related Cataclyism, HW2) - prior to congloberation (via the demographic change of who have PCs? eveyone now - so must dumbdown) today ...

Re: Favourite movie scenes

True. If anyone wants to see really great acting go for anything that isn't American (and usually with subtitles). Americans are unconvincing hams when it comes to acting (and existing). Those weaned on a diet of film acting may not understand that real acting is stage acting, as in the above scene...

Re: British Colonialism better than French/German etc......

i was obviously very wrong in thinking that this was already KNOWN and really did NOT need spelling out so much. (More examples of WHY it is better to NEVER assume any thing at all). I'm really a dumbshit. welcome clear small words. you saying English rule over colonies offered a reversal of libert...

Re: British Colonialism better than French/German etc......

If you are still unaware WHY, then another suggestion I put forward is; Could it be because you were brought up in and by a former british colony country and so you...

Re: British Colonialism better than French/German etc......

note, historically though the Spanish had steel armor, guns, and horses, they would have not conquered the Aztecs without the Aztec neighbors that allied with them (i.e. Aztecs were assholes) - had the aztec not been dicks the Spanish in the first epedition would have all died out. noting the above ...

Re: British Colonialism better than French/German etc......

I reject the mentality of the "noble savage" (meaning "white man bad") life is hard, savages come in all colors. equal good and bad from white man, brown man, black man, yellow man) as do of good character. history IS - had we had a offered redo, the American Indians could have "disscovered Europe" ...

Re: British Colonialism better than French/German etc......

I am not sure of the dates of when these countries were colonized/invaded but could the so called "higher standard of living" have something to do with being invaded later on historically? no, there is no historical evidence of promoting liberty via colonialization (outside of the USA - the outlier...
