Censorship by glut rather than retraction.

Is it really different anywhere else? People only give a shit about our politics because our politics tend to have impacts on the rest of the world. I don't think anybody who didn't have a stake in the India-Pakistan war cared much. I have to admit, most of what I know about the war I learned from watching "Gandhi" Shy .

Why am I not surprised that most of what you know about history comes from movies?

Yes, because not being intimately informed about a war between India and Pakistan that happened more than 30 years ago means he has no knowledge of any history ever.

Pretty flaccid attempt at a completely unwarranted and inappropriate insult. Seeing as how I am not 17, not an idiot, and do have a formal education, I am pretty comfortable admitting my shortcomings.

oh wait, feminist immigrant nazi rape conspiracy. How silly of me.
