Funny? Yes. But not nice.
I just really like it when my posts write themselves. I'm lazy like that.

Edit: Turns out this went to a new page.

Kevin, the problem is you often spreads lies, mistruths, and fiction because that's ultimately what you're all about, and I've literally wasted hours of my life arguing with someone who believes in fairytales. No longer. Your religion lacks credibility, and so do your posts, as well as your intentions.

I have decided this is my official response to Zimphire I MEAN KEVIN from now on:

In other words, Rob couldn't refute what I said, so instead made a personal attack on me.

There was nothing I said that was a lie. If what you did in the past is that embarrassing, I'd watch what you do in the future.

PS: Kevin used to IM me all the time saying he was having trouble that his religion was manmade bullshit, and full of child molesters and people who act like bad people most the time, but go to church to even things out. He still does this occasionally. Also, he can't refute what I said, because if I post he did this, then he must have done so, and there is no way I could be making things up about him. >rolls eyes<

In the German synchronisation, it suffers from the same problem as the Simpsons, which is that a good half of the jokes simply aren't *understood* by the translators and hence either ignored or translated word-for-word into something completely nonsensical, but even so, it's probably among the best TV you'll ever get to watch.

They're Matt Groening's creation after he left the Simpsons.

(And South Park is great in English, but I really can NOT stand the German synchronisation.)

Seems to me, this public fight is all about power. You are the one who is speading lies. No, you are the one spreading lies. You were the guy who started it. No, darnit, you are the guy who can't admit to being wrong. No, that was you, remember? Oh right. Blame others. You are the one blaming. No, I am not blaming anyone. Just proving you're wrong. And lying. Heh, I thought it was you who spread false arguments all over the place. No, don't mistake me for you, fellow.
Stop crapping into my threads. Hah! Says you who urinated into MY THREAD. And you thought I didn't get the catch. Bullshit. I am not the one who started it. Right. I was. It's the easy way out. Hey, you stupid newbie you, you have absolutely no idea what's going on so shut the f... up. Now! Okay, I'll shut up.

Men.

Sheesh.

By the way, there are two of those smileys in my smiley box in one pane! That cannot be coincidence.

Yeah, but here's the thing: I don't claim to follow someone long dead guy who's credo is 'turn the other cheek', so it's okay for me to argue with people whenever I want. Also, most of Kevin's complaints are about 5 years out of date, but he still says he hasn't seen any 'change' in me.

No need to explain anything to me. I do not know anyone around here and I have - in fact - no idea what's going on. I just see the bickering around here and think it's quite heavy tobacco to be doing publicly. None of my business though. I know I'll never start an argument in the political forums as I see many political analogies in this thread, so I can only assume how nasty it can get around here, especially when it comes to politics or religion. Since I am not religious and a leftie on top, it seems like a wise idea.

I wasn't. I was saying Kevin claims to be Christian, and a big part of Christianity is supposedly 'turning the other cheek' to arguments and fights. Kevin does pretty much the opposite of that. I guess he's going to hell then. >shrug<

To be fair, thats between him and God not between us and him.

Being a dick is still being a dick. Rob a good portion of your posts here have been decidedly dickish (including in this very thread).

Of course you both spend more time throwing feces than making any real points ("projecting").
-"I don't believe in God. "
"That doesn't matter. He believes in you."

-"I'm not agnostic. Just nonpartisan. Theological Switzerland, that's me."

Ah, good to know. I think I'll check it out then.
I know what you mean about translations. For the most part, I try to get anything I like in its original language as I'm not a fan of synchronized movies and - as you say - much of the origniality of speech gets lost down the road.


Is Futurama better than "A bit of Fry and Laurie"?

Hrm. I have a little homework for you to do. Start at the beginning of the thread, where I am not being 'dickish'. Then progress through it, notice the first time I am being dickish, and then figure out what I'm reacting to. My guess is someone else was probably being dickish first.

Why on earth would any sane person want to do that?

Because if I go back and point out all the times people are hassling me or being dicks, I'm accused of 'whining', yet when people accuse ME of being a dick, they aren't whining, they're complaining. It's a double standard. If you go look yourself, then you'll draw your own conclusions. I'm sick of defending myself, since some of you keep claiming I just keep coming up with excuses.
