At you, eh? How rude you are again, kwistenbiebel.
You're trying to annoy me with the Asterix stuff? Cute, but it doesn't work. I like Asterix & Obelix a lot.
You've been reading Asterix in Belgium, though?
You know what Julius Ceasar said about the Belgians?
"Of all the Gauls, the Belgae are the bravest." ("...Horum omnium fortissimi sunt Belgae...")
Ceasar encountered the most fierce resistance against his army in Belgium, much more so than in Asterix' corner of Gaul.
The leader of the Belgian Gauls, Ambiorix, has a statue in Tongeren, Flanders.
I do like Asterix a lot
but I think it's more repetitive than Tintin + only the scripts of René Goscinny work well. Once he died, the series should have stopped. The Tintin stories are richer + Tintin doesns't need magic to be brave. He's Belgian, not French.
Right, I'll get my coat.
sorry ild, i expressed myself badly cos i was typing in a hurry. what i meant was that i was cracking up reading the book because besides the jokes i was also laughing at their portrayal of the belgians because i was imagining your indignation.
fantastic book. my fave bit was how at home obelix was at the idea of the breakfast followed by lunch.
i read about the bravest warriors thing
that's the whole premise of asterix in belgium
chief vitalstatix gets super annoyed by caesar's declaration and so he sets off for belgium accompanied by asterix and obelix. then they have a wager and old julius comes to preside and his troops get beaten up. just brilliant
Was kind of a tough one. Cold weather, "fake" grass, and Benzema got injured after a few minutes. Cronaldo was good, Higuain not so much. Moscou scored the 1-1 at the last second of the extra time. We should be safe at home though
danke for the summary
i'll take a draw w/away goal but we better win at home.
What JM said above, should be safe at home.
I always liked Asterix more than Tintin. Just shows you needed time to come to my level of maturity
made dosakai today
You either have the ego the size of Russia or you have the ego the size of the Vatican city trying to blow it up to the size of Russia.
I'm not sure which it is yet but I have my theories.
