tyrant, bush

(no subject)

Since there's nothing like going directly to the source, here are some important quotations from the Geneva Conventions (there are four of them). In order to avoid the appearance of cherry-picking quotations out of context to back up my points, I tried to keep as much context as I could without diluting the crucial points.

Currently, over 190 countries have ratified the Geneva Conventions, which is about as close to world-wide acceptance as the planet can get. These conventions should not be taken lightly.

I leave the text to speak for itself; I'll add my own comments as a reply.

-sigh- I guess these silly quizzes have to hit a bit too close to home once in a while; even a stopped clock is right twice a day. (Once a day if you're on military time or are in a country that uses a 24-hour clock.)

I am a d6

Take the quiz at

You are a good old-fashioned six-sided cube, otherwise known as a d6. Others know you to be plain, predictable, conservative, average, ordinary, and downright boring. You prefer to describe yourself as dependable, honest, practical and trustworthy. People usually know what to expect from you, since you rarely hold any surprises. You hate to make decisions, and if forced to decide, you'll always fall back on how it was done in the past. You always order the same thing at your favorite restaurant, and your jokes, while funny, are never too offensive. It seems that you are well liked, but maybe that's simply because there's nothing to hate.

This survey is completely scientific. Despite the mind-boggling complexity of mankind, the billions of distinctly different personalities found on Earth can easily be divided into seven simple categories that correspond to the five Platonic solids, a pseudo polyhedron, and whatever the hell a d100 is. The results of this quiz should be considered not only meaningful but also infallible, and pertinent to your success as a fully realized individual. If you feel the results of this examination do not match your perceived personality, you should take whatever drastic measures are needed to cram your superego back into proper alignment, as described by the quiz results.

And if you believe that, we have some really great critical-hit insurance to sell you.
