To be fair, while at secondary school in the UK (11-16) I could have said the same about the teachers I had. I had a maths teacher get arrested for assault, one who thought was reasonable to change schools half way through the final year and leave a fellow student as the de facto teacher, and a bunch of teachers who would just disappear randomly and never be seen again.

Yeah I had one leave mid way through a year causing everyone to fail (it was only RE though so who cares) and a year after I left one got the sack for having an affair with a pupil.

With merely the cards I'd accumulated from playing video games I got 4 pretty shit looking games. Shit looking games are my favourite.

@alexw00d: @bisonhero: What about the constitution are you guys suggesting should be changed? The first amendment? You're both suggesting that we take freedom of speech too seriously in the US? No...I think that one is fine and 1000% necessary. I'll fight to my dying breath to protect that aspect of my freedom.

What does the first amendment have to do with anything?

Ask Alexw00d and bisonhero. They're the ones that were trashing it.

Lol this is hilarious. I didn't say you were a conspiracy theorist for a start, I said you sound like one. The way you write things, the aggressive everyone is wrong but me tone you use. And seriously dude, please read things properly, nowhere did I say you should change the fucking US constitution, or anything to that degree. I said people who rampantly defend it on Facebook sound hilarious. I mean, I clearly should just ignore you 'cause you seem to be one of those people, but jeeez dude read stuff properly.

No, I don't give 2 fucks about what it is, I just find it hilarious when people say shit like you just said. You sound like a conspiracy theorist or something, it's great.

E: Also seeing dudes on Facebook saying ridiculous shit like 'OMG NOW THE KOREANS CONTROL THE FIRST AMENDMENT' is hilarious. Some people are really weirdly defensive of a fucking 200+ year old document.

The reason for that is because of how important the Constitution is in this country. Literally our entire system of law and the culture in general were founded upon that document. Without that, the United States isn't the United States. It's what separates us from every other country in the world, in particular the UK, because the founding fathers basically said "let's do the opposite of what England does". That's the whole fucking point of the US to begin with!

Plenty of countries have constitutions though dude - the UK included - but they usually just update their rules as time goes on, modernising that stuff. But that's not even the point I make, it's how damn ridiculous it sounds when I see people say it. It's like me screaming about the Data Protection Act 1998 every time a company gives my data to the US government. I'd sound like an idiot.

This is literally the first I've heard of the film, and from the little bit I saw on Facebook it doesn't look very good, so I doubt I would have ever watched it anyway. I think I grew out of silly offensive movies when I was a teenager.

Until we know why Sony pulled it we can't honestly give any real opinion on it either.

I wear blue jeans unless I can't. I do not like wearing any other kind of pants. Speaking of pants, are blue jeans a form of trousers for Europeans? Unless I'm mistaken, "pants" means underwear over there.

By Europe you mean the rest of the English speaking world right? They don't call anything 'pants' in France or Germany etc. Jeans are jeans here, nothing more nothing less.

For dressing what? If I'm dressing a piece of duck I'd want something plum coloured possibly.
