    What does saluting the flag represent?
    I don't know. I'm a NZer in Japan.

    Well the manner in which the flag is saluted was changed after WWII for obvious reasons. Now you just place your hand over your heart, that is if you're a civilian.

    I don't know how those Nazis did it, holding your arm like that looks so tiring.

    Everybody gets called a gaywad for some reason or another in K-12 these days. I was called that several times too - yet I'm not claiming martyr status here.

    Well originally the Nazis would just wave their right arm at each other, but later did it become what we know today - although they largely adopted it from the Romans.

    What initiated the namecalling? Your sunny disposition or your sunnier mouth position?

    We can often arrive at the same point, but through very different means. The journey speaks of the adventure, not the destination.

    I didn't get the impression he was claiming martyr status either.
