    Hehe, well there you go. Showing YOUR age. The movie is based on a novel. (Do kids still read these things?) :P

    In Flowers for Algernon, didn't the guy eventually get dumber than he was to start with?

    Fine, I haven't READ it either. I don't read boring stuff like that(now tell me it isn't boring and you'd be happy to reread it :roll: ).

    You really are oblivious to what connotations "kibbutznik" has here among alot of people(like, everyone who isn't one), aren't ya? :?

    Also, there aren't many of them left, you know, it's more something that was wide-spread 40-50 years ago.

    [political rant]
    The kibutzim, or communal rural settlements, as they at least started out, are a stronghold of the left wing parties, in particular the big mainstream one(Avoda, litterally Labor).
    While claiming all the budget goes to religeous institutions, corrupt right wing party activists etc and heiling the Palestinian(there's no such thing though, Arab is the word for it, Palestinian is a recent invention in an effort to distinguish themselves from the rest of the terrorists and claim ownership of Israel, or Palestine as it was called by many) effort to kill, maim and destroy the very country their fathers helped make, they seem to not notice the fact they're being subsidized by the state because of their failing economic model and that the very lands alot of them sit on have been seized from fleeing Arab peasants after their failure to kill us all back in 1948, yet they have the audacity to call for giving away half the country for so-called peace, which every sane man can see means shit with such nice neighboring countries that make children shows showing Jews murdering Christians and Muslims for use of their blood or distributing booby-trapped dolls to Arab kids.

    [/political rant]

    So you see, I don't hold the kibutzim any dearer than I hold P&B.

    P.S I also leave in the middle of a city, it's like I'd call all Americans farmboys and hicks just because Mandy here does live in the countryside. And is a hick. :wink:
