How do I not know these things? I'm not sure that it quite makes sense to me how my head is full of so much useless knowledge but I don't even know these facts about my own country. :P

I thought it was the other way around, but then I'm judging by an old Doctor Who episode.

I'm sure it's flag on land, jack at sea, or at least that's what my cousin (who's in the navy) told me... But I'm very gullible...

:lol: Isn't it just typical how you know stuff that will come to no use in life but you don't know important stuff... (been there almost every day...)

How people give as much of a fuck if Ireland and the UK are the same island and all that stuff. I tried to read some of the posts, it didn't make sense. I don't get offended if someone call's Norway for Scandinavia..

It's not about being offended, somebody asked the question so we elaborated on it

Yes that is fascinating isn't it. Though really, it kind of raises the point of why anyone buys a Mac ever. PC's are far more apt for gaming, they are compatible with most programs in general, they come in every possible variety. And the worst thing they push on you is Internet Explorer and Norton.

The only excuse I ever heard from Mac users is "Well Macs don't get viruses." To which I have two things to say to them:
- Wait a few years, the more and more people who use Macs, the more incentive there will be to create viruses designed specifically for Macs.
- Rather than pay at least a thousand dollars more to avoid viruses (as $1000 will get you a premium PC and $2000 will get you an average Mac), why not just pay $50 a year for an elite anti-virus program like Kaspersky? If you have the money, you can equally put it to that use.

Apple products are brilliantly designed to promote the purchase of other Apple products, and excludes much choice in the matter. Android Phones FTW, PC's FTW. If consumers actually looked past brand they'd find Apple is pretty shit and is basically an extortion racket that tries to squeeze as much money out of you as possible.


Exactly. I really can't stand iSnobs who try to rationalize like that. Like, Or you can just, NOT be an idiot about what you download? yeah, that works for me. The only problem I've ever had with my PCs is when my mom downloads attachments from chain emails :dry: but .. We've set ground rules for when she uses my computer. lol. And it's easy as shit to clean it up when you do get a virus.... if you've got have a brain for technology that is. And they're compatible with every other damn piece of technology you want to connect to it. Cameras, phones, projectors... ever tried to connect a mac to a projector? too many hoops to step through. PC, plug it in on both sides. Done.

The ONLY excuse for buying a mac is media production. It is better, not by a ton, but you really can't deny it... Mostly because Photoshop and movie editing software is catered to it.

Maybe it is, in some weird keyboard shortcut, but I have no idea. And I'm sure he doesn't mind that much.

That's because his name is Tre, not Tré.

"they also let slide another Wikipedia-perpetrated error, the misspelling of Tre Cool's name as Tré", about half way down.

Nope, but it's a group of countries, just like Britain.

Ireland isn't on the same island as Britain though, it's totally separate. :P No one gets offended by that, it's more the fact that people think Ireland is a part of the UK. I can see why people get offended, a lot of people died in the fight for independence for our country, and there's still a sour taste in a lot of people's mouths against the English because of that. I could care less though, t'is in the past. I find it weird that people here still have this animosity towards the English when 90% of them weren't even alive back when it happened.

But so many people see Britain as a country, instead of a group of countries...

Maybe it just annoys me because of how long the Scottish Wars of Independence went on for, and they got fuck all out of it. Except hours of History learning about the battles etc.

Then I guess it doesn't matter at all whether you write it with or without an acute accent. I still prefer Tre though :P

This! Quite a few people here still have this (mock-) hostility towards Germans. When it's old people who lived during the war, I completely understand, but for example my sister does it too.
It annoys me, even when it's just as a joke.

though I guess that belongs more in the pet peeves thread than here.
