War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

War = Life

Bit of a fact for you:

1 in 5 treatments that the NHS had to do last year was due to smoking.


Now with that fact, why are fag still legal? Weed isn’t good for you so you can’t buy it, but yet you can still buy fags.

That’s the money greasing the wheels isn’t it.

:D I love the diversity of language among humans. Us Americans got it all wrong. :D

Anyways. As far as pot here in the states is still illegal because it's too easy to grow that anyone can do it. The government isn't going tax something unless it's to their own benefit. And that's why they allow cigarettes and other tabacco products to be legal and not pot. At least here in states.

Thankfully that tax is just on cigarettes and not on smokeless tabacco. Which reminds me that I lost my snuff last night. :x I hate when I loose something.

An intelligent AND respectful American who knows to leave my little one alone. My god. I never thought I’d see one of them. :lol: :lol: :lol:

But I do agree with you. When did Fag start to mean queer in the US then? :?

And I never thought I'd see a Brit that laughs so much. ;)

I dunno but according to the wikipedia article all the original meanings for fag or faggot are British. It was the Americans that used it as a slang term to spread hate and prejudice.

Mark my words Lashmar the US is heading for socalism and it is going to be one helluva ride.

told you why I do though. ;) :)


I don’t know how you’ve done it but you’ve destroyed a perfectly good language.

Faggot is food. Welsh I think. :?

Edit: there you go:

Is that the correct term, British, for those that reside in the UK?

I know, I was just joking on the stereotype that all British people are stuck up. :D

I wanna try some haggis.

If I go into the details it’s going to be a really long answer (of biblical proportions almost).

Yes.

The UK is England (where I am), Scotland (money thieving bastards), Wales (should have paced themselves better on that Cole shouldn’t they) and Northern Ireland.

There are all pissed off that we beat them. Don’t really know why though. :? :lol: :lol:

If I ever go to a Celtic country (not (F-ing) likely :lol: :lol: ) I’m going to greet them like this just to see what they say:

`Good day sir, and of witch vanquished nation do you hail from?`

Just to see the look on there face. That would be worth it, clueless bastards at the best of times. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I have to say 2 terms are even before my time. Being Gay used to mean happy and having a good time, and a Fag was just a cigarette. WW2 lingo I think!

Believe me. if you go into just about any store in San Francisco and say "I'm in desparate need of a fag", you will get all the cigarettes you need. :lol:

Fag came just after the Great War. The officers used to call them coffin nails understandably so as well.
