Talking Thought you might enjoy this....

Marine Corps General Reinwald was interviewed on the radio the other day and you have to read his reply to the lady who interviewed him concerning guns and children. Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you gotta love this!!! This is one of the best comeback lines of all time. It is a portion of National Public Radio (NPR) interview between a female broadcaster and US Marine Corps General Reinwald who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military installation.


FEMALE INTERVIEWER: So, General Reinwald, what things are you going

to teach these young boys when they visit your base?


GENERAL REINWALD: We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery, and shooting.


FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?



GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle range.


FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?


GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.


FEMALE INTERVIEWER: But you're equipping them to become violent killers.


GENERAL REINWALD: Well, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?


The radio went silent and the interview ended.

This is based on an actual radio conversation between a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier (U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln) and Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October, 1995. (The radio conversation was released by the Chief of Naval Operations on 10/10/95 authorized by the Freedom of Information Act.)

Canadians: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the South to
avoid collision.

Americans: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the
North to avoid a collision.

Canadians: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15
degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

Americans: This is the Captain of a US Navy ship. I say again,
divert YOUR course.

Canadians: No, I say again, you divert YOUR course.

Americans: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS LINCOLN, THE SECOND
LARGEST SHIP IN THE UNITED STATES' ATLANTIC FLEET. WE ARE
ACCOMPANIED BY THREE DESTROYERS, THREE CRUISERS AND NUMEROUS
SUPPORT VESSELS. I DEMAND THAT YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES
NORTH--I SAY AGAIN, THAT'S ONE FIVE DEGREES NORTH--OR
COUNTER-MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.

Canadians: This is a lighthouse. Your call.

If you could find signs translated from dutch to english, those can be the strangest. Translated japanese signs are pretty fun.

Hey, Amanda. I think I can take you. Since the 1997 handover, English in Hong Kong has gone downhill. There's a "hair saloon" on my campus.

I think we should do this contest, because I'm willing to take you on, saskuoch.

Categories, anyone?

There is a sign down the street from me that says "Deaf Child Near" I always thought it was odd since I have never seen a single child on that street...I will have to take a pic of it one of these days... I was also down in mexico not to long ago and saw a street sign, your basic yellow diamond shaped one and it just had a huge question mark in the middle of it, and that's it, I never did figure that one out....
