Numbers are representative of western imperialism.colonialism



Brings back not-so-happy memories.

Decades ago, when my marriage was quasi officially failed but the divorce hadn't been finalized yet, my soon-to-be ex and her toy boy went on a spiritual pilgrimage to India, to spend time with some self-styled guru who was apparently well-known at the time. When she came back, somebody was asking her about her impressions of India. One of the threads that seemed to be running through her comments as an undercurrent was that any information they received from the locals seemed to be (shall we say), ah, "less than reliable."

Someone said, "So they lie a lot." My soon-to-be ex's response was, "No, they don't lie. They just have a different understanding of what truth is than we do."

Oooooookay, then ...

I think we should just go to numbers for everything so as not to offend anyone.

ôWelcome to Publicly Owned Wildlife Area #27ö

ôGo Team #33!ö

ôEntering Urban Area #113 of State #9ö

Of course we would have to skip 88 since it is code for Heil Hitler.


And 45 is right out!

Have you heard about 14!!??

Talking about that number is grounds for summary execution,  if even hinted at with 44x2 equation!


No,  I have no use for 88.

I would LOVE to give her change in a store...

Hey, you shorted me $20 on my change!

No I didn't.

Yes you did! I should get $27.50 back in change!

No, you shouldn't because I have a different cultural approach to change. I'm correct because my cultural background says that I'm correct and you're a hater if you don't agree with that.

The lead line held by the sailor on the seal of New York is now a noose. Also problematic is the Indian in attire actually worn at the time*. Should he be in a Pilgrim outfit instead?

*I recognize all Indians didn't walk around in loincloths all the time, but it was certainly worn. Just like some people now sometimes wear long pants and sometimes wear shorts.

If that's a noose, from its size he must be planning to hang a small doll.

And shouldn't the date on the seal be 1619 rather than 1625?    Evil

Only ever used for lynching blacks in much the same way as cops only kill blacks and only blacks were ever enslaved

Friend of mine and I were talking some weeks ago, and we have a tendency to occasionally come up with puns on the fly.

So, he comes up with one and was evidently proud enough of it that he decided to take a picture of it for Faceplace...

He made a couple of loops with a rope and laid them over a low branch of a paper birch or shag bark hickory or some other tree that has really shaggy bark that peels off in strips, and captioned it "The bark is worse than the bight..."

Uhm... are you really going to post that on FB?

Sure, why?

You're going to post a picture of a rope in a tree in this political environment? The look on his face when he realized what I was asking was a combination of shock, disgust, horror, and relief...

Yeah, it's a harmless pun... except it's a rope in a tree...

Absolutely no indication of a noose. No indication of racial overtones. No threat. No nothing other than a pun. But it's a rope in a tree.

And it can't be posted because of the current environment and the mad rush to find offense.

I've got a smaller Norwegian flag I traded for with a Norwegian submarine sailor while on a port visit in Den Helder many yeas ago.
I need to dig it out and start flying it.
