in reply to I'm not going to [http://braga.yapceurope.org/|YAPC Europe: Braga, Portugal], because

I refuse to go because a friend of mine was stung by a Portuguese man-o-war in Florida. Why doesn't the UN do something about this?!?!

    Hmm... sounds like U.S.S. Maine and the start of the Spanish-American war? You'll soon visit for another reason? :-)

    (Hope the joke isn't too tasteless, this year. For the record, an invasion to implement an arab democracy is IMHO a potentially good thing. If done well.)

      Why would you want an arab democracy in Portugal?

      "If God had meant for us to think for ourselves he would have given us brains. Oh, wait..."

        The Arabs lost control of Portugal quite a few hundreds year ago. :-)

        I'll explain, even tough you probably understood the joke and tried to be funny, too. :-)

        US declared war against Spain using as excuse that a ship exploded in a harbor (in Cuba, I think). Noone still knows why the ship exploded.

        Considering WMDs etc, I joked that a Portugese man-o-war burning a US citizen would result in Portugal being bombed.

        I had the disclaimer, because I consider Chomsky as reliable as Fox News; as much religion as Vi-believers (Emacs lovers are of course just using reason). But this is totally off topic.
