Topic: Superiority Complex.
Posted: Saturday, March 10, 2018 12:35:30 PM
In an ideal world, the topic of superiority complex
should be dealt with in a layman school on the first day.
Displaying to all and sundry that one is an overling
among underlings in a certain community is meaningless
to the rest of the world and simply laughable.

A Foreign to English dictionary
gives the equivalent of the game
as /play "who will laugh first"/.

process A FEW THOUSAND, if not MILLIONS of years.

Of course beau isn't an expression widely used these days
(definitely not by teenagers, yet occasionally,mostly jokingly
by older people who remember) but a few decades ago
it was still in use (as in the novel) in the sense of

Ms. mmm

Your billboard is about President Truman, while LOSERS. SAD! was referring to
The Abominable Tweeter with the Youthful Orange Complexion. And by extension to his idolizers.

It struck me that as if in response to the Florida shooting (God didn't grace the victims with that day!) you hastily pulled out from somewhere
a feel-good "Bucket-and-shrimp" old miracle story.

As there has been another shooting (I admit less tragic, but God again didn't grace the victims with that day), you owe us another miracle story.

Survivors at sea are called true heroes.
The corpses rotting underwater are LOSERS. SAD!
