I plenty acknowledged that there exists the possibility of my ancestors having an effect on the current situation in Rhodesia, sure, but to criticize me, a person born outside of UDI apartheid for simply being born white and inheriting a shitload of land that is stained with the blood of generations of native Africans, and getting upset that I can't sell this unjustly owned land in order to afford my fancy American law degree, doesn't make a lot of sense.


fixed for you :)


Actually I was thinking of using some of the money to put down on a nice piece of land stained with the blood of some Cherokee, maybe even some old Hopi, I hear their land is dirt cheap these days. :roll:

It's funny you mention that, because the gigantic tract of land that I inherited from my grandpappy has some dirty, gross Cherokees squatting on it, and now I can't cash out my chips. Maybe I should hire some people with guns?

Word. I thought that it's been Zimbabwe for some time now.

If this is a flame, I think it's one of my favorites. Definitely up there with the Scholarly Revolution troll who was going to bring the Scholarly Spirit back to law.

In the odd event that this is legit, I'd say GTFO of Zimbabwe. It has lowest Property Rights Index score of the entire continent: http://www.globalpropertyguide.com/Afri ... ghts-index

We are conquering threads just like the Brits conquered the Zulus.

The last few posts are sort of an inside joke among a certain group of regular TLS posters.

i do kind of like the idea of norb being a traveling shitshow....ie, latching on to every over the top ridic thread that is posted. and you can't tell me a thread that says "rhodesia isn't what it used to be" doesn't qualify.

Do the natives of Rhodesia suffer from Kwashiorkor? That's gotta lower property values.

Rhodesia used to grow and export a ton of food, but now a third of the county is on outside food aid. Mugabe FTW.
