    Well if a teacher can start fascist movement as an experiment and watch it quickly escalate, a communism experiment doesn't sound so far fetched. The last few lines a up for debate sure. ,

    Time someone does capitalism. Pay for your grades with a special school-only currency you need to earn by reading in the library for younger kids or homework help or whatever, then watch the various strategies play out.

    I expect the same person warped the following 'joke'

    A CHRISTIAN DEMOCRAT: You have two cows. You keep one and give one to your neighbor.

    A SOCIALIST: You have two cows. The government takes one and gives it to your neighbor.

    AN AMERICAN REPUBLICAN: You have two cows. Your neighbor has none. So what?

    AN AMERICAN DEMOCRAT: You have two cows. Your neighbor has none. You feel guilty for being successful. You vote people into office who tax your cows, forcing you to sell one to raise money to pay the tax. The people you voted for then take the tax money and buy a cow and give it to your neighbor. You feel righteous.

    A COMMUNIST: You have two cows. The government seizes both and provides you with milk.

    A FASCIST: You have two cows. The government seizes both and sells you the milk. You join the underground and start a campaign of sabotage.

    DEMOCRACY, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two cows. The government taxes you to the point you have to sell both to support a man in a foreign country who has only one cow, which was a gift from your government.

    CAPITALISM, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two cows. You sell one, buy a bull, and build a herd of cows.

    BUREAUCRACY, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two cows. The government takes them both, shoots one, milks the other, pays you for the milk, then pours the milk down the drain.

    AN AMERICAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows. You are surprised when the cow drops dead.

    A FRENCH CORPORATION: You have two cows. You go on strike because you want three cows.

    A JAPANESE CORPORATION: You have two cows. You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk. You then create clever cow cartoon images called Cowkimon and market them World-Wide.

    A GERMAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You reengineer them so they live for 100 years, eat once a month, and milk themselves.

    A BRITISH CORPORATION: You have two cows. They are mad. They die. Pass the shepherd's pie, please.

    AN ITALIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows, but you don't know where they are. You break for lunch.

    A RUSSIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You count them and learn you have five cows. You count them again and learn you have 42 cows. You count them again and learn you have 12 cows. You stop counting cows and open another bottle of vodka.

    A SWISS CORPORATION: You have 5000 cows, none of which belong to you. You charge others for storing them.

    A BRAZILIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You enter into a partnership with an American corporation. Soon you have 1000 cows and the American corporation declares bankruptcy.

    AN INDIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You worship both of them.

    A CHINESE CORPORATION: You have two cows. You have 300 people milking them. You claim full employment, high bovine productivity, and arrest the newsman who reported on them.

    AN ISRAELI CORPORATION: There are these two Jewish cows, right? They open a milk factory, an ice cream store, and then sell the movie rights. They send their calves to Harvard to become doctors. So, who needs people?

    AN ARKANSAS CORPORATION: You have two cows. That one on the left is kinda cute.
    Arkansas eh?! Ah ha ha ha.

    Or say you know someone that said that they did it, and they say it didn't work.

    In that 'classroom communism' test, the capitalist version might be to give 35% of the total marks to the top 1% of the class and 0.2% of the total marks to the bottom 40% of the class, and see how that goes down...

    EDIT: usual link troubles!

    Grrr. It's 00:30 and I'm already running out of grapes. Going to be a long shift.

    Piss off with your "jus" or your "reduction of" or a "what ever the fuck foam". Say SAUCE dammit, it's a bloody SAUCE.

    "Smothered with a red wine, mushroom & tarragon jus", NO! It's COVERED in a red wine, mushroom and tarragon SAUCE, you prick!

    That's been building up for a while...

    When I tire of colouring my hair unnatural shades I get told how old I look by some people - there's a fair streak of white in it these days.

    I find the silver acts as instant highlights :D I've been dyeing my hair so long I've forgotten what my natural colour is.
    It does! I have dark auburn henna in most of it and a shock of bright copper in the fringe =D
    My natural colour is the dullest brown possible, so when it all goes white it will be an improvement.

    Orange flavoured biscuits are truly the red sock of the biscuit tin. One orange flavoured biscuit will infect all the other biscuits with its vile orangeyness

    I agree completely, it's almost as annoying as a clothes shop calling itself a boutique

    If someone sparks up a work Conversation and then starts doing stretch exercises midway through while continuing to chat is that classed as normal behaviour?

    Yep, toe touching, putting his hands on a table and thrusting at it and squats. Glad I'm not the only one to think it a bit weird.

    Whenever a man over a certain age (let's say mid 30s) tells me he's going on holiday to Thailand I assume he's a sex tourst and probably a pederast.

    What's even weirder is you asking if it's weird.

    Weirdo.
