Very, very, but VERY cool. Marvelous, I daresay. I do appreciate it.

There. I hope this makes up for the lack of interest of this forum.
Which, BTW, of course perfectly illustrates their "intellectual maturity" and also their self-aggrandizement.

But what wouldn't one do in order to feel - rightly so or not - they are part of an elite ?

Once more this person praises with faint damns.  It is becoming so tedious.

Thanks for that. I am part of the elite, and we do appreciate the finer things in life. Now Jolly Green, be a dear and get me another cocktail, won't you? (http:///forums/richedit/smileys/Happy/19.gif)

Haven't checked it out yet but I do like cbc.ca's archives section.  Its where I get all my history of Canada from.

You are correct. I wouldn't.

You are certainly taking great pains to appear "not-generalizing".
I am perfectly aware of what you are trying to do, and once more a stupid comment was delivered.

My post was not without sense, but it has been lost on you.

"Mutilated Mind" is the way it should have been.

  If it's mutilated then all the more reason that it should be spelled incorrectly.

Besides, kitten, nobody - at all - was interested in this thread before I commented, which proves the point I was trying to make.

very cool archive.

BTW, the French have something similar. It's a huge archive starting I think in the fourties, of filmed documents of all kinds.

Great if you want to study or improve your French and are interested in the French culture.
