I still don't get how every discussion about the U.K. on Slashdot gets dragged off topic into a discussion about the U.S. or comparing the U.K. to the U.S.

I don't think it's just a U.K. thing. It's not unheard of in the U.S. for folks on the political Left to compare the U.S. to European countries in general, in making the suggestion that the U.S. is "behind the times" on things.

I'm not going to watch the retarded shit anyway. I do think that video gaming nowadays should be lumped into regular sport, because it's the same kind of people who play the button mashing games anyway.

A game that required actual intelligence can hardly be found, never mind made into an Olympic sport.

Maybe call the timelines with names appropriate for them, or at least non-racist terms. I'd hate for them to settle on something as stupid as "Star Trek White" and "Star Trek Black".

Wait, are you asking for a grim and gritty reboot of "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield"?
