he thinks every other website and every english dictionary must be wrong.
he doesn't like to be remind that the official name of the swedish state is:
Kingdom of Sweden
he keeps forgetting I've already quoted this:
"The Swedish monarchy
Sweden is a constitutional monarchy. The Swedish head of state since 1973, King Carl XVI Gustaf, exercises no political power and does not participate in political life. He is the representative of the country as a whole, and in that capacity performs mainly ceremonial duties and functions. Among his duties the monarch chairs meetings of the Advisory Council on Foreign Affairs. The king is supported in his duties by Queen Silvia and their three children, Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Madeleine. Queen Silvia was born in Germany to the German-Brazilian Sommerlath family. "
he doesn't like to be reminded it comes from:
http://www.sweden.se/eng/Home/Society/Monarch...
Sweden is a parliamentary democracy, which means that all public power proceeds from the people. At the national level, the people are represented by the Riksdag (Swedish parliament) which has legislative power. The Government implements the Riksdag's decisions and draws up proposals for new laws or law amendments.

Sweden has been a hereditary kingdom since 1544 in the days of Gustav Vasa and the current successor to the throne is Crown Princess Victoria. In 1980, three years after her birth, the Act of Succession became gender-neutral to allow the throne to be passed to the first-born child, male or female.

so if a name decides the type of government a country has, does that mean
The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea) is a democratic republic?

After you die, you think you're going to some magical land where everything is perfect ... and you're going to waste your time sitting behind the big guy just to laugh at people? Your heaven sounds like a place made for idiots.

Oh, the life of the NotBot is ever so much more fulfilling: laughing at the mythology of others why hanging on to dear life to theirs.

NO sense wasting time in the afterlife where there no shortage of time when you can waste it here...

It's a good way to kill a few hours a day, so meh. Laughter is great medicine ... when you're alive and actually have to worry about such things.

Bruised & beaten to a whimper from all sides by his illogical assumptions and false fact finding, the lumbering, ageing troll tries one last attempt to poke the atheist. But alas the armchair religiotard still has no proof of god yet opens his stupid fat mouth.

The only one bruised and beaten here is you, Septic: your boyfriend got a little enthusiastic with your adventure in the bubble bath and you slipped and you ended up banging your head on the bath tub spigot.

I'm sure the bed rest will do you good... as long as you put him down on the couch.
