Overheard at the Bar

"You know what the One Ring did to Gollum? That's what the State of Israel has done to the Jewish people"
If that's true, then Taiwan Independence is Helm's Deep, and China is Saruman. And I'm Tom Bombadil... no wait, I'm Faramir. And my wife is the Witch King of Angmar. No, that doesn't make any sense. Fuck, this is hard.

If you can infer that sentiment from the post above, you are either drunk or being willfully obtuse.

They were non-expansionist and non-jingoistic hobbits before.

Hell, maybe someday Taiwan will achieve de jure independence, resulting in a twisting and poisoning of what is otherwise a pretty enviable culture here. I don't know.
