Actually, just read some other threads and I take it back - seems the solipsism is only really strong in this thread.

I would be offended by this. But you all are inexistent, so I don't care

You're the one to talk, I'm the only existing mind here.

Well sorry but I don't care about posting which three gaming heroes I'd take to a tropical island, so I'd rather try to change the topic or post my thoughts anyhow as someone might have something to say, which usually is the case.

In fact you are quite the opposite of that solipsism you describe as you still seem to be obsessed with me as every post of yours seems to be about me.

Anyone knows why TotalBiscuit is arguing with "GW's fabois"?. I don't feel like reading 1000000000 tweets to find out

While we're on the topic of solipsism.
What is a Tweet?
And do people really do that?
Or is it media hype?

People, apparently, do read them. It seems to be especially popular with inveterate texters and media 'savvy' types.

Congratulations to France for electing a socialist president.
Good on you, and about bloody time.

And my condolences to the Greeks...

Well, having a socialist government the last decades (with a few breaks) didn't help Greece that much. It is interesting to see how a government with so many left MPs will fare, especially since the troika is having a meeting with the new government later this week.


I wouldn't worry about Greece turning into North Korea though, I doubt even a fully left government would manage to stay uninfluenced(= uncorrupted) by the EU and the IMF. Not to mention that in 4 years or less there will be new elections where people will probably go back to "safer" and more cooperative parties, unless there is a drastic change for the best (which is highly unlikely since the meters proposed by left parties require a few bad years before getting back on their feet).

I think he's the first French president to be tall enough to ride on carnival rides too...

I'm pleased that that Sarkosy is out,
the guy just divided the population in every way possible, young old, black white, those with work, those without.
Maybe there is a little hope now for the youth.

We are all victims of the "monetary crisis" that does not give reason to divide the people in the way that his idea of French politics have done over the last few years.

The socialist victory has probably stopped another revolution, which the French are perfectly capable of, as history has shown.

Ooh, I sometime surprise myself, religion and politics are a no no, for me!

Cheers.

Merkel + Sarkozy = Merkozy

Merkel + Hollande = Merde?

I'm interested to see what direction France will head in now, as Hollande seems to be a very different man than Sarkozy. The Euro dropped a little bit as a result of that and Greece. What is Hollande's position on Greek austerity measures?

Come on guys.



I am very tempted to give my opinions too but rules are rules.

Please stop talking politics in "the anything thread" (as funny as that sounds) and also please stop bringing it up in the Picture and Gif thread.

I am going to have to start giving infractions if it keeps going on.
