And you wanted to give you the link after you posted the link, SuperFAG?
You are ridiculous SuperFAG, you know that?
Pretty desperate stuff to distort what I asked for, Barefoot.

You, based on nothing but the fact that your claim was supported by only one online resource, subsequently demand that I must tell you the author of the Wikipedia articles that I have used previously. Yet, not once have you ever named the author of yours.

Double standards anyone? I think so. If my argument was outdated, like yours, and dishonest, like yours, then I would rather stay quiet instead of make a fool of myself like you do on a daily basis.

Fess up, Barefoot. You got owned with that source and have been trying to run away from it ever since.

Tell us again about why we should care about a monarch who pets corgis all day.

But, but Mikko... the DICTIONARY says that monarchies rule Sweden, so why should we care about how the county actually functions?

Can you imagine how simpler academic life would be if we just relied on the dictionary? No need to write dissertations and theses - just quote one or two definitions from the dictionary, job done.

Not true, SuperFAG.

There is that LONG quote- which was marked as a quote- it doesn't mean (by a long shot) that it was the only source.

And it negates not at all global criticism of using Wiki as a primary source, especially the sources are anonymous.

Anything else, Shug?

Is the United King_dom a monarchy, yes or no?

Official name of that country is: KINGDOM of Sweden.

A country, state, or territory ruled by a king or queen.

A realm associated with or regarded as being under the control of a particular person or thing.

Does Barefoot think that dictionaries define reality? Yes or no?

If I write a definition for "Barefoot" as "a manchild who lives his life on Topix", does that make it reality? It would be a near-accurate definition, but does it encapsulate everything about Barefoot?

I think is is funny that someone who posts hundreds of comments directly at me can accuse anyone else of living his life on Topix.

You can't have me, SuperFAG, I don't row that way, but I hear Skanque is looking for someone and you two share that tonsil massage thing, maybe that will work out for you.

I am simply responding to what you type. All you could say in response to my point that you are only crying about Wikipedia because I exposed your source as unsupported and unauthoritative was that I was telling fairytales.

Thus, you were saying that the website you pasted from is a fairytale.

Here's a tip, manchild: read before you post instead of typing the first childish rant that comes to mind.

Royal Assent has not been refused in over 300 years. Three hundred. Three, zero, zero.

What does that say about our monarchy?

You are an expert at receiving tips, SuperFAG.

However, to give them you have to establish you know something someone else doesn't know.
