    There are boards all over the place in other languages. This one is English. Seems a simple enough rule.

    Besides, it's been my experience people always have a problem with languages they don't know, whether they speak one or many. I got a friend that speaks English, Spanish and French that acts like an activist for his "languages" and his "rights", always berating people that don't speak them and trying to get me to watch foreign films in those languages. But when I suggest a Japanese or German film, guess where his fashionable liberalism can be found: nowhere! :)

    Funny thing is that I kept on hearing people tell me to watch this hilarious film Airplane and had never heard of it. Little did I know that the Australian title is Flying High and it was one of my favourite-est movies already!

    (I noticed that alternative title in the list. Any idea why they changed it? It's not common to change titles down there, is it?)

    I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

    Nope, it's almost always the same as everywhere else. Very odd.

    They're always mangling the titles up here, so I'm used to it.

    Btw, re Airplane, have you ever "experienced the literary version"?

    I almost expect this to end with "well no, there isn't anything you missed, I just wanted it to sound like there was some weird innuendo I was using, haha!".

    But I'll bite.

    :roll:

    I was alluding to a statement made on another board where someone (whom I suspect of having a kielbasa up their bum) told you they had seen a certain movie but hadn't read the book it was based on, phrasing the latter in the above, decidedly odd, way.

    Get it now?

    Or should I spell it out for you with ... a nice chianti ... and some fava beans? Thphlpththtphthththtph! :P

    Took me a while :) I'd forgotten about that.


    (and personally, I think the person with the kielbasa up their bum was the one telling me that I was wrong to prefer the movie)

    I didn't notice that bit.

    I can't remember if I've read Red Dragon, but I've read the others and seen all the movies. (Except the latest, "Young Lector" one. Pass. :roll: ) I liked the Hannibal book much better than the movie, and much better than the Silence book. LOVE the Silence movie; never pass up a chance to watch it, and have no idea how many times I've seen it (in full or from partway through)...more than thirty at least. :P

    Well, i am about to start yet another topic in the Golden Path forum, so, for all of you who call me a troll and an attention whore, i offer:

    faq.php#f6r0 (FAQ: Friends and Foes)

    And i guess the link to make ME a foe is:

    ucp.php?i=zebra&mode=foes&add=mrpsbrk

    (but no guarantees on this one, please do it as the FAQ says...)

    So you can stop pretending there is anyone that actually forces you to read what i write.

    I was looking at it to see if there was any rule against making a thread to attract attention, as that guy accused me of, and found none -- so i keep with my naive intention of splitting threads whenever i think that the topic in discussion could be better organized with a thread of itself. Sorry if this is considered trolling, i don't want to spoil anyone's forum, if i am doing it i apologize. I don't mind people disagreeing with me... But those people act like i am trying to conquer the forum or something.

    that's because shame would stop most people considering doing what you do, so no one thought there was a need for a rule...

    I accused you of nothing, genius.

    What I did do was imply that you are an attention-seeking poseur.

    Start 10,000 threads for all I care; in about 30 seconds, you'll be on my Foe List until the end of time.

    Have a super life. One last piece of advice: try just reading the words that are there on the paper.

    Don't get snarky. The reason people are getting a bit fed up is that you're raising ideas that are either flatly contradicted by the books, or, at best, not at all supported by them and therefore wildly speculative.

    When people reply to your posts saying that, your tendency has been to change what you're saying in a way that makes it more difficult to understand what your point is, or to maintain that the way you see things must be true anyway. We want to discuss Dune here, but most people lose patience when the discussion goes nowhere fast, or goes round in circles.
