And there should be a beauty contest for "Miss Subtext". It will be won by a transgender goth person studying semiotics...
Give yourself a week's suspension on grounds of unacceptably insulting subtext, Jocka.
Don't tell me, you're considering the op, have died your hair black and have started an on-line course on semiotics from the University of Wollongong...
Make that two weeks' worth! :lay:
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

I can see a Subtext between Jim and Hermit. Definite sexual tension. :coffee:

No way. I refuse to step in Scott Dutchy's shit.

Besides, trailerboy has enough problems, now that he has bought a car that keeps needing repairs on a daily basis.

The Dark Knight: only good capitalism can defeat bad capitalism.
Joker: capitalism can only be defeated by anarchism but, alas, anarchism is a fantasy.
