    I am going to curse drunken men forever more. And I have a valid reason to curse them. I wish them all die slow and painful death in the hand of a toturer!:mad:

    i hate drunken men too. why is it that drunken guys think that simply because you're female it gives them a right to touch you?? and what's with all the 15 year olds out in town trying to pull me and my friends? bleuh.
    15? Check that post number of yours. You got a thing with 1 and 5.

    Drunken people pass my window on pembroke street at least twice awake singing loudly at 2 in the morning, or something like that. For that reason alone, they should all be castrated. I have decided to adopt castration as the new capital punishment in replacement of death.

    tis the price you pay for being closest to a major uni lecturing site....for us who have to live far away we at least possibly get a good nights sleep. I'm sure you'll be luckier next year though!

    Think of the Pearl Harbour film! The whole thing about "We have no choice, we must bomb Pearl Harbour" was a load of rubbish concocted so the film wouldn't be shunned by Japanese audiences. I'm sure there are other countries who are guilty of refusing to face up to their past too though.

    I don't know what the Japanese are thinking. Maybe history lessons would be "easier" if they don't teach that stuff? It's not just China going against them on this issue. Oh well.

    As far as I'm concerned, if they're going to treat history so, they should just go all out and have book burning.

    that's kind of extreme, but I like it.

    lol yes it is, but if you're not going to treat history as precious, and learn from it, what's the point, it's worthless...It's not meant to be a public relations exercise.

    Rant over :rolleyes:

    that's ridiculous...as if a county can hide its past. i feel sorry for the kids who are going to get taught the wrong stuff.
    From the article: "Only about 18 schools will be using the textbooks". Thats probably fewer than the number of schools in America which don't teach evolution. Its not like other countries don't selectively teach history, either. How much is there about British colonialism is there in the English curriculum?And I do find it ironic that China of all places be complaining about anyone hiding the past. :rolleyes:

    The whole thing surrending the war time history in Eastern Asia is slightly different from the Colonialism. The whole argument about text book changes has been going on since the mid 90's at least. On the other hand, what the article doesn't say, it's not just China who's against it. Pretty much everyone who got invaded by the Japanese is against it. Japan is trying to wipe clean what it did wrong in the past, so the future generation wouldn't know about it. They can live on as if nothing has happened. That notion is simply wrong.

    It's offered as part of the GCSE, AS- and A-level history syllabuses, and no (before you ask), our textbooks don't go on about how much the colonies needed us and if they weren't going to make the most of what was theirs then we had a right to do what the hell we liked with it...

    I know what you're getting at, but it's not quite the same thing.
