I see where you're coming from, and while you are on the right track, I do feel the need to defend myself in some areas.
I find it sad and pitiful to think that you can laugh and jeer at a child who wound up in such a terrible situation.
When I read this, it makes me think you're comparing me to the village idiot laughing because someone tripped. I am not meaning to personally mock Tutankhaten or his reign. I am merely tired of seeing 'Tut this' and 'Tut that'. I really don't see what the big deal is. Some guy's parents died when he was young. It's sad, but it happens all the time. It is still
happening. Now, do not go off assuming that I should be off to mock orphans or children with only one parent. I was lucky enough to have a strong enough mother who would keep me after my father died, and really I just find this a little insulting.
As per the Egyptomania - I know .. I know.. It was a joke..! Forgive me for having a sense of humor. But.. for your sake, if reincarnation does indeed exist, I will ask to not be put back on this Earth so you don't have to deal with it. Again.. a joke. I'd go just to spite you
! ANYHOO... while Tutankhaten's burial chamber was not the single reason of mass Egyptomania, you do have to admit, it did add one hell of a boost.
Again with the Aswan Dam and Egyptology (I referenced it to Egypomaniacs after hearing about Tutankhaten), it was a joke. Forgive me if I said something slightly untrue about your homeland. I respect and envy you so much that you are able to have something like what you do. It's not that I hate America, far from it. I just hate Reagan.
A brief summary on why I hate Reagan:
[*]After Vietnam, the country was in debt.
[*]Reagan wins elections, saying he can "eliminate debt"
[*]...nothing really happens...
[*]Reagan creates his 'Seven Year Plan'. LIE
[*]Years later, we're screwed.
Ronald's Seven Year Plan was to buy off other countries' debt, and settle it for lower cost. This didn't work because the idiots took in too much, didn't finance their money properly, procured even more
debt of their own, and let it get out of control. And now, everyday people except the elitist fucks in the top 1% have to work to pay it off. ARGH!
