    More people should read news rather than watching it

    what alot of the mass public don't seem to understand is the news - both tv and newspaper - is owned by a very rich and influential somebody who exerts alot of bias over what is reported based on their own political and financial agenda. which is why you have to look at as many sources as possible, from all over the world, and try and construct your own truth from the coinciding pieces of information.. and i think the absolute most intelligent thing a person can do in this case, is to remain skeptical and never outright believe everything you hear.

    That frustrates me, just about every music store has it listed as Dream Theatre, and it's just not right... :mad:

    However, had they been an Australian band, you can rest assured that would have been how it was spelt... :D

    i didnt say all of you... however...

    anyway, case in point... its pretty bloody sad when a newpaper editor in new york (9am) calls a newspaper editor in alaska (4am) and wonders why alaskan newspaper editor isnt in his office.... can we all say stupid!!! and the number of calls i got at the paper from people in the lower 48 asking questions about alaska, and invariably they all asked the time...

    and then when they worked out that i'm australian, not english, wanted to know do we all keep kangaroos in our backyards as pets... yeah, just like alaskans keep moose...

    West Virginians have sex with their sisters. You know, some of these vast generalizations are not made up.

    That's actually WHY I watch the Daily Show and Colbert Report instead of on eof the real stations.. I get the exact same amount of information, maybe a slight bit less from an hour of fake news, than I do from 24 hours of CNN

    I didn't mean anything by it. That topic just happened to make its way into a show I was watching earlier.

    Woah, lucky for us Australians, the only people like that are separated from us by the Bass Strait... :lol:

    Actually, Tasmanians aren't that bad, we just enjoy poking fun... :p

    Now, everyone knows that i'm the last person to take TEH INTARNETZ!!!1! seriously, but some of these comments are getting a little out of hand *cough crapola cough*.

    I can appreciate a humerous letter from John Cleese because that made my balls fall off from laughing so hard.

    However, some of these comments you're making based on a few people that you've had some experiance with... well, that's just dumb. First of all, i think most people have a concept of "time zones". I may not know the difference from here to Libya without looking it up, but that doesn't make me a fookin' retard here. And by the way... and i'm just throwing it out there for you... WHO was the one that married into the incest family??? *looks around* I'm pretty sure it wasn't any of us at this forum... wait... hold on, i do vaguely recall someone saying their... yes! It was YOU crapola. so... whooooo's the smart one?

    Admittedly, that list was pretty funny, and I'm the last person to take the Internet seriously (second to last next to Zach I guess), but I'm getting pretty tired of the whole "stupid American" stereotype, especially coming from people I respect. Reading "ALL AMERICANS ARE DUMB HURRRR" is a bit disheartening. I know (I hope) you don't have me or any of the other Americans here in mind when you take jabs, but still... we are American. Don't say that I can't take a joke either, because I've said nothing in defense the countless other times those stereotypes have come up. I speak English, not American. I don't bleed red, white, and blue, and I don't want Freedom Fries with that. My parents came here seeing it as the land of opportunity and they've done well. I'm proud of being from here.
