@izzythepush,
I'm an American. I assume this site is an American-created one, despite the fact there are people outside the U.S. using it.

Don't use terms like foreigner in a pejorative manner. You could have said, non American, but you didn't.

Why do you have such a problem with those of us from outside the US?

Actually, it's not. The owner of this site has lived in several countries. He's currently in Latin America.

@izzythepush,
No Izzy. I've done research on culture outside of the U.S. a couple of years ago. I haven't really kept up with it.

There's a chat site I frequent that's populated with non-Americans. I am friends with some non-Americans.

Well, he certainly is stranger than most.

Obviously a porno book, because, you know, female skin on cover. Don't worry about the mans skin, that is totally normal.

Nobody else has called me a foreigner, only you, and you say it with apparent distaste.

@izzythepush,
To me you're a foreigner. I am an American. I am not using the term "foreigner" like it's some kind of put-down.

@chai2,
I have read that book, it's about a boy brought up on Mars returning to Earth when he's still quite alien.

Heinlein has a strong following amongst some people, but I never really liked him.

You are, you may not realise it, or be doing it deliberately, but you are.

Yes I figure you read the book. Most people have.

Play on words of Stranger, Stange, Foreigner, Stange Land, etc.

Moving along....

@JGoldman10,
It appears I've missed St Crispins eve (last year) as well. Right now I'm working on missing Halloween, National Hot Dog Day, Thanksgiving day and your next post.

I have ambitions.

I'm an American. What the heck is St. Crispins and why should I care?

You utter bastard.

This day is called the feast of Crispian:
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when the day is named,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say 'To-morrow is Saint Crispian:'
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars.
And say 'These wounds I had on Crispin's day.'
Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember with advantages
What feats he did that day: then shall our names.
Familiar in his mouth as household words
Harry the king, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,
Be in their flowing cups freshly remember'd.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember'd;


Over here Swithun is our local saint. He's buried in Winchester cathedral and legend is that if it rains on St Swithun's Day (15th July) it will rain for 40 days and nights, bit of a safe bet for Hampshire.

@JGoldman10,
Because you also watch Shakespeare in America.

Only an idiot is so dismissive of knowledge.

@JGoldman10,
In response to your deleted post.

I'm not interested in your bottom, please keep it away from me.

If anyone disagrees with you, you start screaming troll. Bob said something, which directly related to Henry V. You really should take a greater interest in literature, you might get some ideas.

I thought you were a Christian, does being American take priority over your religion? Saints are from Christianity, not any other religion.

That's why you are always talking about men's bottoms, right, izzy.

@izzythepush,
I'm an "idiot" because I don't know what Saint Crispin's Day is?

That's NOT an American holiday you kook.

We Americans read Chaucer, Spencer and Shakespeare, and watch plays by British playwrights. What does that have to do with what I asked?

Only British holidays we Americans celebrate is St. Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day.

@JGoldman10,
No, you're an idiot because you don't see the value in knowing anything about Saint Crispin's Day. You don't appreciate the well known Shakespeare verse about the day.

You're also a Christian. Aren't you at all interested in the lives of saints? Christians who lived a life so exemplary that had miracles attributed to them after they'd died, aren't you interested in learning about them?

You've spent a lot of time asking for help/resources with all sorts of aspects of animation/cartooning. You seem to be asking how to get an original idea, and there's only one way to do it, live it. Keep a notebook handy and jot down events that happen that may be used in other contexts. And broaden your horizons, there are no original ideas, everything is copied off everything else. Read books, watch films, go to the theatre, get some ideas and then put your own take on it.
