    I GOT CABLE ONE DAY AND I WAS TRYING TO FIND SOMETHING TO WATCH AND I
    WATCHED MTV FOR ABOUT 2 HOURS THEN I GOT A BOWLING BALL AND THREW IT
    THROUGH THE SCREEN AND TOOK THE BOWLING BALL AND BROKE THE CIRCUIT
    BOARD AND BROKE THE CABINET. I CALLED MY CABLE COMPANY AND TOLD THEM
    THAT I AM CANCELING SERVICE AND THEY ASKED ME WHY I AM CANCELLING AND
    I TOLD THEM THAT I HAD BETTER NOT RECEIVE ANOTHER BILL FROM THEM. I
    FILLED UP THE SPACE WHERE MY TV ONCE UP WITH OREOS AND TWINKIES.

    THEN ONE DAY I WAS RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF A GALLON OF VANILLA ICE
    CREAM AND I GOT A KNOCK ON THE DOOR. I OPENED IT AND IT WAS A BUNCH OF
    TEENAGERS. I THOUGHT THAT THEY WERE MORMONS BUT THEY SAID THAT THEY
    WERE FROM DISH NETWORK AND THEY WANTED TO OFFER ME SATELLITE TV.

    I TOLD THEM TO HOLD ON A MINUTE WHILE I GET MY CHECKBOOK. I SHUT THE
    DOOR AND TOOK A SHIT IN MY LEFT HAND AND I OPENED THE DOOR AND
    PROPELLED A LOG OF DOOK IN ONE OF THE SALESMAN'S FACES AND I TOLD THEM
    THAT IF THEY CAME BACK I WAS GOING TO KICK THEIR ASSES.

    (sigh) sounds like the american way - use of gratuitous force and
    violence. And spam.

    Don't blame America. His own email address describes him as a yahoo.

    So much for it being the American way?

    Gotta love that German potato salad...

  9. Not me. Any type of potato salad induces projectile vomiting.

    (sigh ...again)...Read it properly. it says ' SOUNDS LIKE the
    american way ', not IS the american way! .
     

  12. SIGH! Read it for yourself (even though you wrote it). It is just
    another backhanded slur from Spain, against the US.

    That "I destroyed my television set" thing keeps appearing in
    different places on the Net. It's like "All your bases are belong to
    us". Each person who posts it, thinks they just discovered it and that
    nobody else ever heard it.

    please explain. what are the others, if this is 'another' and
    'backhanded'?? how?
     

  16. Read usenet for a while. There are a number of Europeans and a couple
    Canadians who Damn the US at every chance, even if they have to make up
    the whole story, rather than just twist a few facts. Its quite common on
    the sci.electronics.* hierarchy.

    Backhanded as in, they don't come right out and say what they mean.
    Instead they try to turn it into a sick little joke so they can claim
    innocence when called on their comments.


    Names like Eeyore, Homer J Simpson, Bill Sloman top the list, but
    there are dozens of others. Do a little digging and you'll see what I
    mean.

    why would anyone want to criticize the US?
     

  18. Jealousy, or ignorance, is my guess. Either that, or they just love
    telling lies.

    what lies etc. have you encountered? I'm intrigued. Can't say I've
    noticed a great deal on this NG, perhaps you could point me in the
    direction of the relevant threads.
     


  20. A lot of it is on which isn't archived.
    Look for the names I mentioned in the Google groups archives, in the
    sci.electronics and alt.electronics groups. For instance, Bill Sloman
    made a claim that the US kept changing their food safety standards so
    his relatives couldn't export beef to the US. Others rant about nuclear
    power, the vehicles we drive, health care, food safety and any other
    garbage you can come up with. It would be easier for you to take a look
    at the archives with the names I gave, than for me to post pages of
    links. Add US or United States to your search to help filter out other
    posts.
