Comment My Twitter acc (Score 0) 80

I've had twitter for about 6 years now and I still don't know how to use it.
Occasionally I get an email from them that Thomas Lennon posted something. When I open it, there is a single post by him which I don't really understand, followed by a bunch of other posts by randoms that don't make sense.
Is that's what twitter is about?

Fuck the Benelux bankers. Hungary tossed out the IMF and paid off all debts. They have their own currency. German auto makers have invested heavily into new factories to take advantage of the cheaper labour. Same with Slovakia who build the VW based Skoda.
Germany has never been a welcome ally. They stuffed up Hungary over the last 500 years and left it in ruins.

Germany never surrendered to Greece. They surrendered to the Allies. That's what Greece won't accept. IF Greece wants repatriation, they should look towards those Western, Central and Eastern countries that happily switched sides when they realised the Axis powers couldn't win.

Comment Stupid (Score 1) 17

So fucking stupid, pointless and dumb movies with bad scripts, blue filters and moronic, plagiaristic morals being a total waste of resources, time, effort and the rest of the shit I can't think of at the moment. That sub-genre is dead and they're still pushing it. Fuck off.

Comment Original Dune (Score 1) 234

I read the original Dune book quite fast as soon as I discovered that reading every 2nd chapter (the sci-fi parts) were a lot more interesting than the arab based filler.
I never really paid that much attention to it until I saw the movie many years later.
