    I like to think of the US, UK, and France as siblings. Constantly picking on each other, but if an external entity picks on any of them, God help 'em.

    Germany, UK and France are siblings. U.S. is UK's child who moved with his uncle for a while after he had a fight with his father but now that he is settled on his own he has made up with his old man.

    Well, by that analogy the UK was just way too promiscuous.

    Hey here's a question for everybody.

    I recently finished the final revisions (more or less) of my novel. Who wants to read it beginning to end as a beta-reader? You'll get listed in the credits and get a free e-book copy

    What will that involve?

    Essentially, how long is it, can I do it without giving out personal information like e-mail, and will you list "Gaius Hermicus" in your credits?

    If yes, then I'd love to check it out! Best of luck to you.


    Re: Countries

    Most of the Nordic countries have a bit of a reputation around here as being quasi-socialist, Denmark and Sweden primarily. I've been to Norway (loved it, except for the food) and Iceland (honestly not that much to do there).

    Great Britain technically could be described as America's father. In which case, America ran away from home, we were estranged for a hundred years or so, during which we stole Britain's industrialism and made it better, then we became friends because of that damn Mexican-German-Japanese conspiracy.

    France is somewhere in there, I guess.

    LaZodiac, I am sorry I didn't provide feedback on the previous manuscripts you sent me. I will do so for this one.

    Also, the AP Physics 1 test was today, and was surprisingly easy. (Of course now I am worried that they will curve it severely and actually I misunderstood everything and got a 1/5.)

    Nah. AP Physics 1 is just an easy class if you've got the math background.
    I would really like to see a game made by Obryn, Kurald Galain, and Knaight from these forums.

    I'm not joking one bit. I would buy the hell out of that.

    Yes. Which is why I thought it an excellent idea to start learning the material 2⅟2 weeks ago, rather than sleep through take the class. In the midst of concerts, and other upcoming deadlines. I have to say, I am not sure how they spread that little stuff into a full year course.

    It's 71 000ish words, would require having your email, and your choice as to what you're listed as.

    I don't know why you said that given we're both well aware of this, but I just wanted to let you know (again) that that's okay, I don't mind. Life is complicated and sometimes you don't have time to read a book by some rando, no harm done if you feel bad about it

    I'm in a transition state in terms of life schedules, but will likely be looking for some reading for commute. If you are still looking for readers in two weeks (and I haven't said anything), feel free to PM me a reminder.

    I want to go into detail on my views here, but that would be breaking board rules.

    So instead, over the course of my childhood and adult life I've had experience of American, French, and German cultures, and the UK is far more like the latter two even if people don't want to admit it. I go to Germany and, despite barely speaking the language anymore, I understand a lot of things and find a lot of things to relate to (the same can be said of France). The times I've been to the US quite a bit of the culture has confused me, and I don't integrate quite as well.

    Also somewhat less prudish than the US are, despite stereotypes. From what I understand it has to do with a mixture of changing culture and being close with Europe (who tend to be less reserved that we are).

    Twice today I've gotten on an elevator only to immediately duck right back out because the people getting off it hit half the damn buttons in that car. Imean, even in a normal elevator setting that's a ridiculously childish thing to do, but who the hell does that in a hospital elevator? I swear, some people can be just so damn trashy.

    I'd be happy to - although, at the risk of sounding like one of those much-reviled prudes, I'd like some assurance that there's nothing of an explicit nature in there.
