Electro-shocked by your cellphone

Some people think it’s a stupid idea to have your phone shock you instead of just vibrate or ring when you have an incoming call. Well, not if you are my father. He can’t hear well (so usually he can’t hear the ringing), and when he is arguing about politics in my village’s cafeterias (a very common and agressive… hobby in rural Greece), all of his mind is set on arguing against the socialists or communists.

I guess, a bit of electroshock will do him good. Maybe even, very good.

“Arguing with the socialists and communists”

Hurray for your father, Eugenia. Whatever the state of his hearing,
he has his head screwed on tight.

He has his head screwed on right.

The perfect government is a balance between left and right. Right sucks. Left sucks. It’s the combination that makes for a perfect government.

Speaking from a Dutch perspective, of course, not from a US one, as in the US it’s just evil or evil, and evil and evil is even worse than just evil. Rewind that back if that sounded fast.

I place my couple of denars with Thom.
Gosh how it bugs me that everybody just flat out screens socialism or communism as if completely evil. Bush has brought out the 1950s inside many of you out there.
Let’s see some synonyms: communism, socialism, muslims, hitler, satan, microsoft…
well i made my point.
