Gah, I meant the SENTENCE starting with "In South Africa", the paragraph does not start with those words. Irrelevant but annoying.

FT: I watched Coraline, thinking I'll give Burton another go. And, you know, with that open-minded outlook, I actually enjoyed the film quite a bit, and it made me realize that Burton does have a knack for delicate fantastical story-telling, even though it hasn't really shown in his last dozen-or-so works.

Then I looked it up and Coraline had nothing to do with Burton at all. The giant hack.

Surely the important thing is that you enjoyed the film? I tend to decide whether to see a film based on its critical reception and what I can discern of the plot and execution, not the director.

Same here, except for Quentin Tarantino's films, because they're so self-similar I can usually judge what I'll get just based on his name being there. I don't have such strong feelings about any other director, I don't think.

Well, yeah, sort of. See, I wanted to see the film from the trailers. It looked cool. But I assumed it was by Burton, which was why I avoided it. This is also why I haven't seen the latest Alice in Wonderland, or Corpse Bride, or Sweeny Todd. I'm still trying to forgive him over Planet of the Apes, Sleepy Hollow, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Mostly the latter: Willy Wonka was brilliance. It was happy and dark at the same time, and it drew you in so much. The remake was meant to be grittier, but it was just shit. I mean, I know I'm not going to enjoy anything Burton serves me. I thought Coraline would be an exception, and it turns out it was, but just not for the reasons I expected.

It's also, like, why I'm never seeing a Lucas film again. Too much betrayal, man, way too much betrayal.

EDIT: and, yeah, like Briareos implies, there are some directors who impress a lot of their style onto their films. Wes Anderson does it, Tarantino does it, Kubrick used to do it, and Burton certainly does it too (except in a shit way).

Same. If it's a Tarantino film I'll see it. I'm a bit of a fanboy, I think.

Scientific advancement is hard to quantify what would or would not have happened had certain people not been in certain places. No tomato, potato, chili pepper or corn products is the main definite I can come up with.

Really, all of the scenarios I can come up with don't rely on if contact with the New World happened, but When it happened. Unless we're talking about a strange future that has Europeans, Africans and Asians using GPS devices while the natives of the Great Plains still hunt buffalo on foot and the Aztecs being the primary power in the New World.

We could be. But that is dependent on the aliens having a pre-existing reason to think we may be assholes. There are many earth examples of cultures accepting unintentional insults in the aim of avoiding unpleasantness. "Of course the mzungu wouldn't know that, it's a mzungu." Look at Borat.

I'm trying to remember any wars that were actually caused by diplomatic faux pas. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_of_the_Golden_Stool comes to mind.

However, the faux pas here was the result of something that most definitely did matter in a material sense. Quick rundown: the demand for the Ashanti to allow the Queen to sit on their throne was something that was considered more important by the Ashanti than the British, but it was important on both sides; by mutual communication the symbol of a throne was understood at a basic level by both parties. And the demand was basically for the Ashanti to be subsumed into the Empire. Which is a perfectly good causus belli.

But I'd be interested in any other examples.

In Asdas or Tescoes, between £7 and £15 would be my expected amount, for a shirt. If you were going to a place like Topshop or River Island, I would say around £25 is what you'd be looking at. H&M is often cheaper than the other brand stores, I have found - usually in the upper range of Asda/Tesco prices.These are rough guesstimates, I don't often buy clothing.

Now it's reached me as well. Don't quite know what to think. I kinda dislike how certain important UI elements pop in when you hover them.
I edit my posts a lot and sometimes the words wrong order words appear in sentences get messed up.

Yeah, this is an option I should consider. There isn't a Primark in this town, so no cheap-tits clothing sadly (mainly I'd just like a few more t-shirts at the mo).

ALSO: I buy my summer clothes. The forecast until monday is rain or cloud.

I hate school. I hate how it turns kids off education. I hate what it does to kids. It's idiotic, at best.
