    So much for repairing our image in the world - President Obama has already hacked off everyone in the United Kingdom by sending back a famous Winston Churchill bust that was given as a gift after 9-11. Then he made matters worse by insulting Prime Minister Brown in a gift exchange. Brown gave President Obama a pen holder carved from the timbers of H.M.S. Resolute, and a first edition of a 7 volume biography of Winston Churchill - but Obama gives Brown the equivalent of a pair of socks. The phony gifts of 25 DVDíS included Raging Bull, Casablanca, Psycho, The Graduate...Wasn't he trying to repair our image in the world? How could he be so stupid?
    Why no one points out that their gift was just as shitty. Come on, a pen holder?!
    "So, what does this thing do then?"
    "It holds pens."
    "And...?"
    "That's it."

    It's an age of digital revolution in which we use computers to write, not pens.

    And a seven volume biography? It's gotta be super boring, since no person can be interesting enough to be written seven volumes of biographies about.

    I'd rather take the DVDs and watch them on my region-free DVD player.

    Ns are always looking for hidden motives... such paranoid folks you are.

    EDIT: This post has been sarcastified, and may not represent my actual opinion.

    Look mate, normally I accuse others of being cheap, so I try to be sterling myself. However at the bottom of the ragbag of my heart I am constantly resisting my own sarcastic comments. But occasionally the cheapie does get through to the keeper.

    And although my conscience tells me that I am being cheap and nasty, my animal instincts do a little jig.

    So my life is a constant battle between my conscience and my animal instincts and sometimes my feet do a little jig all by themselves.

    So I am grateful to you, Wildcat, for pointing it out to me.

    Yes.
    The feet do a little jig from time to time.

    It happened to Jesus three times.
    And to Gandhi two times.
    To Krishnamurti one time.

    Only our Lord is perfect.

    Can someone tell me why Obama and anyone he could've possibly asked in his administration decided it was cool to give Queen Elizabeth an ipod as a presidential gift? I don't understand why...

    Actually I think that's kinda cool.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.
    Real life awaits and she is a demanding mistress.

    Maybe he notices his base is slowly diminishing to a younger audience. That and all the other decent gifts laying around the whitehouse were kyped by the clintons some 9 years ago apon leaving. I suppose he could have gave her bernie madoffs house in Florida.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    Queen Elizabeth II is our longest reigning Sovereign, and perhaps the most loved.

    Her Majesty is way above cool.
