I'd love to be able to say sex. But with my looks, it's got to be tobacco.

Yeah, sex would be a great vice by georgeha (4.00 / 1) #2 Fri Nov 14, 2008 at 05:31:46 AM EST
from my memories of it. I'll go with coffee or beer.

Looks have little if anything to do with it. by dmg (2.00 / 0) #10 Fri Nov 14, 2008 at 01:20:08 PM EST
If you seriously want more sex, there are ways and means, and they don't involve looking good.

I don't mind Jarmusch but that one was too much.

It's slow like Broken Flowers, but pretty good. Definitely worth seeing once, anyway.

Amazon/Ebay by miker2 (2.00 / 0) #8 Fri Nov 14, 2008 at 06:28:16 AM EST
I've been house-purging with a cross-country move in mind.  Ebay has this thing where the payment is instant through paypal but it's held for 21 days unless the buyer releases it.  I have ~$200 just sitting in paypal because folks can't be bothered to release the money or give feedback.  I don't *need* the money, but I'd rather it earn me interest instead of paypal.  Bunch. Of. Cunts.

Amazon's not much better.  Just sold a book for $10 (priced to move), amazon gave me a 3.99 shipping credit, then took 3.84 out for a commission.  Since when is 38% a reasonable commission?  Bunch. Of. Cunts.

The first four are my favorite one, depending on the situation.

Why WW2 bombing is more contentious by jump the ladder (4.00 / 2) #12 Sun Nov 16, 2008 at 01:53:05 AM EST
In the UK is that RAF Bomber Command's official doctrine was to bomb the bejesus out of the German civilian population as until from 1944 onwards, the RAF night bombers couldn't hit accurately any tagets smaller than a city. The USAAF doctrine was officially targetting of German war industry although with the innacuracy of the bombers plenty of civilians got killed.
 
Also plenty of British towns and cities got bombed unlike the US so there's memory of how awful it is to be at the receiving end. And us Brits tend to be more self critical regards our past anyway than the rather selfserving and  mythologised view that the US has of itself. On the whole we had a good WW2 but along with the Battle Of Britain and breaking of the Enigma, you have the ignomious surrender of Singapore and plenty of other examples of incompetence.

Hamburg is less controversial than Dresden as it was a major port and industrial centre, the Germans were still very much in the war and at the time Bomber Command really couldn't hit anything smaller. By the time Dresden happenned Bomber Command had good navigation
and sights so could have focused on non-civilan targets, the Germans were beaten and Dresden didn't have many war industries.
