    A TRUCE!

    Let us propose a "truce" in this "fuzzy" war we are at. I call it fuzzy cause no one knows when it started, or who the enemy is, or where the battle lines are, or whether we are really even at war, or what this war is about alla = "fuzzy war".

    A truce then. Seize the day. Cease hostilities, end the fuzzy war.

    sir

    I think perhaps you need to flesh out your proposal a little...

    I think it's not called a 'fuzzy war' but 'a complete balls-up'.

    Either way I'm for it. Carry on.

    The truce rather than the war, I take it.

    So exactly how does one call a truce when one is unaware of one's enemies? Put down the gun and sit on the floor?

    Well thankyou MJ but I must admit the single funniest thing at MacRumors
    has got to be the Monty Python thread...

    sublime
    most sublime

    but alas we're off topic...

    Zimbabwe... perhaps you could elaborate...
    got any pics, plans, blueprints....
    are we talkin just trees and deserts and wildlife
    and huts...
    was there once a great city there?

    you have lost me in the morning fog...

    well at least I got a coffee...


    sir

    I'd stop at the chocolate and beer. You'll probably start another war based on what to rebuild.

    I think I'll hold off on the truce for now... I like a little violence in my diet.

    Ubuntu

    Wow....
    Thankyou for the Zimbabwe info...
    Ubuntu = "humanity to others"
    a most ancient africian concept akin to the Golden Rule...

    most most intriguing
    and an excellant clue...

    I'm ok with rebuilding an ancient greek civilization, but let's keep Socrates out of it. He's a buttmunch.

    The ancient Greeks, for all their fine philosophising, were pretty primitive on the subjects of women's rights and slavery. Rather like the ancient Americans who drafted your hallowed Constitution.

    He liked nothing better than to sit in the Gymnasium (literally: place where you take your kit off) and watch the boys wrestling. Bent as a nine pound note, he was. :)

    Ah yes but few if any are perfect...
    They did mind you concieve of "democracy" around 600 BC? or so
    which is a bad system perhaps but the best one we've got at present.
    It did fail mind you but rise up again around the time of the reformation
    1500 AD.

    It certainly didn't get practised anywhere in Europe for a long time after that.
