A British Gentleman


I am a fan of many things, particularly the fine works of Sir Terry Pratchett (may he rest in peace). After spending a long time lurking, I have elected to create an account.

[Non Pony] Purest Snake Oil · 11:26pm January 8th

Good evening, my good ladies and gentlemen. I hope to find you alive, well and, preferably, tipsy.

A video recently dropped on YouTube, concerning the vexing topic of Anti-Vaxxers. Some of it, however, featured a firm called Coseva. A seller of outrageously overpriced snake oil, it's claims about its products are mindbogglingly stupid and wrong.

Which brings us to the Detox industry, one of the biggest scams in the world today.

Hey, are you okay? Haven't seen any stuff from you for a while.

I like Black Adder. Though I do think its had quite a negative cultural impact in regards to WW1 history. It really has done damage in that area. The fact that the creators double down on how behind the comedy Blackadder gets what the war was really like is really annoying.

Should this highly successful television series [...] be taken seriously by cultural and military historians? [...] As early as 1994, at an international conference in Leeds, the Blackadder series was cited as serving to 'perpetuate myths which persist in the face of strong contrary evidence'. As already mentioned, it was employed as an introduction for the television programme on Haig in 1996 [Timewatch's "Haig: The Unknown Soldier", first aired July 1st, 1996 -- NMW] and, the ultimate accolade, in 2000 it was popularly voted number nine in 100 Great Television Moments for the most memorable television events of the century (only one other fictional episode made it into the top ten). Some schools are now using Blackadder Goes Forth as the main text for study of the First World War at General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) level.

True that, one of my favorite moments has to be where every time Black Adder said Macbeth, the two actors end up tweaking each other's noses,XD
