bow tie ?...
You're right, it would fit the context much better than the yellow star. The latter is by far the most known, though.
The fact is that I didn't know about the other signs; or I didn't remembered. Anyway, shame on me, a French should know that. That's frightening me : losing memories like this one. I didn't know war. I barely spoke of it with my grand parents before they die. And I see the world committing the same mistakes than 50 or 100 years ago.
Oh, sorry, I forgot the [CheapPhilosophy] tags
The word "terrorism" seems to me more and more like the yellow star of WWII.
OK, France is not perfect. I can tell, I'm French.
But this problem is not a French only problem. It's a problem of tax avoidance.
Few years ago, Sarkozy said "Tax heavens don't exist anymore". Seriously !?!?
So, why are Google, Amazon, etc, paying so little taxes ? In France only ?
Do you think they are paying these taxes in your magnificent United States of America ?
No, they're just paying a little as they can _everywhere_.
I think we must adapt our calendars to make it arrive on 2012/12/21, don't you think ?
Here, in France (and probably in some other countries), we can get money back for OS and crapware. OK, I'm talking about the whole set of crapware, Redmond one included.
It's difficult, it's long, you have to go before a judge (or somebody close to). But you can get your money back. Several computer manufacturers have lost in court.
M$ gives tools and procedures to OEM and manufacturers to add it. And now they want us to pay for it's removal ? "Vindju" comme on dit !
I'm not a expert in foreign languages nor in English in particular (I'm French, you see what I mean !), but I'm fed up with upper case letters at the beginning of every word of the Internet !!!
Perhaps German needs some, but English ??? Why ??? Where does this curious habit come from ?"
