Stephenson Billings Offers 12 Reasons to Boycott A Game of Thrones", presumably in an effort to further American conservative christianity's crusade to become a laughingstock. Apparently Peter Dinklage is a gay icon, R'hllor the Red God is an avatar of socialism and it's all too hard to understand.

ChristWire is known to be a parody site, so "laughingstock" is probably quite an accurate description of their goals. Of course, due to Poe's law and unfamiliarity with the site in question, I think you're at least the third person I've seen this week posting it as though it's "real".

Well, goddamn it.

Oh well, I'm a horrible, credulous idiot. In a dumb way it still work out the way I thought, because I can't really tell when Christian conservatives are being dumb or when people are pretending to to be Christian Conservatives being dumb. I'm pretty sure that, "abolish parody," is a one of the planks of Rick Santorum's platform, even when it's this outrageous, although I suppose, "The show is incredibly difficult for adults to understand," should've been a warning sign. I don't suppose that Conservapedia is long-form satire? Especially the fellow who's dedicated so much effort to demonstrating the link between atheism and obestity, and who has presumably never been to Mississippi.

Best to silence yourself and be thought of as a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

I was taught that by a very intelligent "religionist"...

Don't kick yourself too hard!! As I say, Poe's law, which essentially stipulates that you've no way of knowing whether it's a parody unless you're told. I should maybe have made that clearer: I wasn't trying to call you an idiot. :) Just doing a public service...

As for Conservapedia, the jury's still out, perhaps, although I believe that it is headed by a serious fanatic and populated at least in part by infiltrators. Because you can get away with writing outrageous stuff on there, some of these infiltrators have no doubt managed to get under their radar, but if they catch a whiff that you might not be "one of them", they're quite trigger-happy with blocking IPs. Sometimes they even block IPs from getting on the site itself.

Yeah IIRC they block everyone from editting while it's nighttime for Americans as well because most people outside the US on there are playing Conservatroll.

I'm sure it's not. It's mostly standard English and inaccuracies seem odd. Practically the only things she does different is the lack of 3rd person singular marking on verbs and the lack of genitive marking. Like so:

"Dear Leader never do that. Dear Leader make the handicap walk and the blind see. Dear Leader is always full of loving care for the people."

And I doubt "downtrodden" is one of the first things people learn in English either.

Also the use of a noisy animated gif tthingie as proof of America's Nazi-ness can only be a joke.

Could anybody who is well acquainted with Chinese evaluate how well John Huntsman speaks it?

I know very little of Sinitic languages generally, so can't really assess it, but even so, he sounds very conspicuously like a second-language speaker.

It bothers me because I'm usually careful and skeptical enough to do 'due dilligence' to avoid being caught on things like this.

Del:

John said during the sit-down video: "Right now theres only one Governor in the United States who speaks Chinese, and that's me.
I was constantly studying when i was in Taiwan, every morning I'd get up really early to study Chinese. After two years my Chinese was pretty decent. I came to mainland China in 1984, twenty years ago, back then i was working in the white house with President Reagan. We went to China and met with Deng Xiao Ping, Hu Yao Bang and Li Xian Yan."

I'm not fluent in Mandarin but I could follow along, and it seems he was pretty fluent himself. Kind of a bland pronunciation though. :P

What, doesn't Huntsman know that he's automatically disqualified from participating in the Republican primaries this year for speaking a furreigner language?

I heard Romney "speaking French", and he was so terrible at it... I hardly say that his "ability" would disqualify him. :roll:

You know, Huntsman isn't a terrible candidate. He speaks a foreign language which is quite unique. He doesn't support gay marriage but nether does Obama, at least he supports civil unions, and in Utah! Too bad he'll never make it.

No, that's still terrible. A Republican *and* the president can [and will] both be terrible.

What happened to the beauty and the grace of cruise ships, of liners? The Queen Mary 2 was the last of its kind, the last of an era where beauty and appointments measured above capacity and how many amusement parks one can fit on a ship. I feel like I've almost lost faith entirely in the sport of cruising, for these companies, Royal Carribean, Norwegian Cruises, Cunard (and sad to say it), Carnival, Disney, etc have destroyed what we once thought of as deserving to be called a "cruise ship", a "liner."
