"...some of the Americans don't believe there is intelligent life outside of the USA."
BP. A good number of us are convinced there is NO intelligent life INSIDE of the USA these days. We'll see if my concern is correct this November.
Hoping for intelligence, USA
I think we've all got a vested interest in that outcome John Son of Peter.
My suspicions lean towards a further term if only because of his record regarding employment at home, and his bullish behaviour regarding miscreants and ne'er do wells who threaten the perceived social norm.
My comment about life outside of USA stemmed from a post originating from someone on FB that went along the lines of "Any Trade Stims going in Boston" Ignoring the grammar or lack of punctuation, I responded truthfully.
"I have three or four, I hadn't thought of selling but I don't play with them any more" and I sent him photos.
"Where U" was the reply.
"I'm in Lincoln" I said "Just under an hour from Boston" Now of course I had checked his location through his I.D. and saw they had tried to educate him in NY State.
The interesting response was " Well if you think can do Lincoln to here in hour, you bring them over, I often go New York and its four an a half hours by plane!"
To which I honestly replied "New York is even closer to Lincoln than Boston, but there's no flights" and to prove my point I sent him this map.
Interestingly he outright denied the veracity of my evidence and claimed my map showed the wrong Boston.
I suggested mine was the right one as it's the one the other 36 in the world are named after including the one he was in. Plus the same applied to the 42 places named Lincoln (according to my History teacher in 1966 and that nice Mr. Google 3 minutes ago)
I then (quite reasonably I thought) enquired if this meant he was not interested in my Trade Stimulators.
He quickly told me to attempt a manoeuvre which to this day I consider anatomically impossible, however I should have at least died in my own arms.
I offered to post him a fridge magnet from The Boston that The Founding Fathers started out from on their arduous tour via Holland and Plymouth. However a lack of further reaction from him suggested to me he was now comfortable with his level of education for now.
Was I norty? Had I been rooood? I believe all that happened was I responded to his opening post with the same arrogant assumptions he'd employed.
