1  Forum / General Discussion / Re: I'm visiting America in August! Let's fest! (DUMBFEST US '14) on: November 19, 2014, 12:21 pm
I will be around in America from like 6-15 dec, I will be coming into the city proper like the seventh on the evening I think and staying in Manhattan.

I have tapped up the PWOT NY crew (your Tangas and bettycams) who will be representing and I have some other friends out there I will be seeing but I am up for hanging with anyone whos free at anywhere they suggest is cool.

My main plans so far are museums and problem drinking, the two main hobbies of an Englishman.

I'm (probably) going to be in NY the second week of December as I have some annual leave to burn and that seems a fancy enough place for me to visit now I am an important businessman and know one or two folks out there to press gang into tour guiding.

I dont know if any DMers are close enough to fest, or just have some advice about stuff to do/visit. My plans so far are just "burn America" and "find that King Kong shackled up show from the movie, looked pretty great".

I know America is some horrible poverty wasteland where tipping isnt a "good job, have some money" thing but a "they dont have workers rights here, this is essentially mandatory" thing, but I doubt most visiting people would. Maybe you should put it on the little immigration form, where we have to tick we arent a nazi war criminal.

To be fair to the world we live in, that movie looks awful.

I was legitimately concerned it would never end, come on Boro, I need to sleep.

Pretty good vote anyway, right answer, lots of engagement and hopefully the lesson is a step towards more regionalism concerns and voting system reforms.

Happy with that, especially specifically enslaving Sanchez to our imperial English wiles.

I thank the Scottish people for fighting for my freedom to have my own fancy office, this result means a lot to me.

I just found out in a meeting today if they vote yes my company is pulling all its offices from Scotland and the staff will be moved down to us, which means I will lose my fancy office probably and have to sit in the "open floor" seating like a junior manager animal.

This vote just got REAL.

Dont split on us, bro.

Also we should immediately make The Doctor switch to an English accent if it passes.

18 months to sort out "what you voted for exactly" is my problem, failing to provide some sort of definitive mandate is dodgy as hell. Largely debunked economic dangers is not a statement that can be true as obviously we are dealing with a lot of predictive elements when we still dont know what the plans for independence are economically or what the split of debt/resources would be, its a long term problem, I hope England would be savvy enough to realise while a lot of concessions economically to a new independent Scotland wont exactly be "fair" but will be in our long term interest not to have a bankrupt state by us ... ditto for doing what we can to get you into EU.

We dont really know if you can readily rejoin the EU as a straight transfer and under what conditions if so (like taking the Euro). I guess you could apply for some sort of exception for the Euro and be shoehorned in, it would seem logical but I assume states like Spain would fight the hell out of it for obvious reasons.

I would also like Scotland to take the Euro if it went independent, not for any economic reasons, it will just be so much easier to get rid of than Scottish notes.

While I still dont think its probable, I would like independence so I can have a dual citizenship to an EU country (if they get membership anyway) in case we ever leave in some fit of pandering right wing nonsense one day.

The downsides like how its a bad idea to be having a vote of independence without any sort of forcing of a plan or mandate from the independence side, the gross economic dangers for Scotland, the no doubt skyrocketing of shortbread prices well... I dont care about any of that. Fuck Scotland.

I do care it will just be another left wing region of the UK leaving to bolster tory potential of future majority governments for the rest of us (till that promised UKIP split kicks in one day, hopefully).

I do however propose we change the name of the country if they leave to "England and friends".

I also think that the charge is sound and the sentence seems harsh. But I dont know Canadian system, so maybe big possible sentences are thrown up at first but really something much more sensible comes out in sentencing, in which case I think its all sound.

You have a split of responsibility for what she did, manslaughter laws are pretty clear on this being sufficient here, and usually sentencing reflects culpability.

I wasnt sure if they were playing that for laughs, but Jojo Frog Boy getting stabbed was comedy gold.

Also I liked all the additions and changes from the books (all great) and I hope to expand the show out for next season we just get a whole Run of Arya's foreign adventures.
