Yet within the last week you said:

"The entire world of computers revolves around boolean logic: is or is not, 0 or 1, yes or no.

The follow is an example: the United Kingdom is a monarchy.

Yes.

Not maybe.

Not it depends.

Not compared to...

It is."

Which must also mean that the USA either is or is not a republic.

So: where you wrong "a long time ago", or were you wrong within the last week?

I do not negotiate with manchild internet tough guys; you either back up your claim, or keep showing that you are lying. Either way you are too much fun to whack so I am not going anywhere.

You can stop pretending. I know you got the quote from Wikipedia, you know you got the quote from Wikipedia, so who are you trying to fool?

What time of yours do I possibly have to waste when you devote 80 plus posts a day to this forum?

Put up little boy: show me where you got the Macmillan quote from.

Define democracy.

Explain why you get to break your own rules and be right, but why everybody else is wrong whether they play by your rules or not.

Come on, manchild. My mallet needs to whack you some more.

Maybe you have got confused:

You - yes, you - made the claim.

Adults are expected to back up their claims.

You, my manchild friend, have to take something called -responsibility- for your claim and back it up, so show me where you got the Macmillan quote from. Mommy and Daddy cannot help you; you need to do this by yourself like a big boy.

For all your talk of British people being cowards it sure is ironic how you run away from your responsibilities. Is that what you think being big and manly is about? Acting like a child? Crying and begging other people to leave you alone when cornered? It sure seems that way.

STOCKHOLM—The Swedish royal family is gearing up for the lavish wedding of its crown princess Saturday, even as more citizens are saying the country should divorce itself from the monarchy.

Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling were presented with china at the Royal Palace in Stockholm on June 3.

The royal family is something of an anachronism in a country that prides itself on being one of the most equal in the world. For decades, a majority of Swedish lawmakers have been in favor of abolishing the monarchy, but no political party has had the stomach to pursue it.

Royalists and republicans struck a deal in 1974 that allowed the king to remain head of state, but without any executive powers. Ever since, Sweden has been, in the words of then-Prime Minister Olof Palme, a "pen stroke from a republic."

Almost 40 years since the compromise was struck, more than 200,000 people are expected to line the streets of Stockholm to see Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling, her former personal trainer, take a lap of honor in their horse-drawn carriage from the royal castle through central Stockholm and back again. To further underscore that this isn't an average wedding, 18 fighter jets and 5,000 troops have been called out to pay tribute to the couple.

But it is far from certain that Victoria, 32 years old, will inherit the crown from her father, 64-year-old King Carl XVI Gustaf. Popular support is on a gentle, but steady, downward slide. According to an April poll by Gothenburg University's SOM-Institute, the proportion of Swedes in favor of the monarchy has slid to 56%, from 62% six years ago, and is the slimmest majority since the institute started polling. Attempts to reach the royal family were unsuccessful.

Some say the weakening support of late is due to Victoria's choice of husband—a regular, middle-class guy from the rural town of Ockelbo in central Sweden.

Others cite public discontent at having to foot the bill for the wedding. Taxpayers are coughing up 10 million kronor ($1.3 million) for the wedding alone, before factoring in the cost of restoring the church, new uniforms for police officers, cleaning and other necessities. The city of Stockholm is also splashing out eight million kronor on a two-week-long festival tied to the wedding called "Love Stockholm 2010." And critics are unlikely to be mollified by the prospect of free subway rides on Saturday, courtesy of Stockholm's taxpayer-funded transportation authority.

"For all of us who weren't too fond of the whole monarchy deal, this has really triggered us to do something," says Vilma Seth, organizer of "Real Love Stockholm," one of the many antiroyalist parties taking place in the capital this weekend.

"I don't understand why politicians refuse to do something about the monarchy," Ms. Seth says. "I think the way a country is run should reflect its values."

Those who favor hanging onto the monarchy often mention the king's role as a representative of the country and his work supporting Swedish companies abroad. Whether that work justifies the 110 million kronor the government pays him every year is a matter of hot debate.

And while the national retail organization is forecasting 2.5 billion kronor in domestic sales of official wedding merchandise, Swedes may be overestimating the allure of their monarchy to foreigners.

Nice try at trying to change the claim.

I have already backed my claim that you took your quote about Macmillan from Wikipedia by, surprise surprise, showing the exact same quote from Wikipedia.

You claimed you got it from somewhere

The onus is on -you- to show me where you "really" got the quote from.

Put up, manchild. I am sure you have managed to shift responsibility to other people throughout your sordid life, but I am not going to wipe your backside for you.

Time to be a grown-up and admit you lied.

Actually, you didn't.

And we started with you saying I never cite sources.
