That's a bold comparison! I will surely listen to Delius, Elgar,
Vaughn Williams asap. Accepting your drink wager, since I primarily
prefer Whiskey, I would have to mention that Hindi Music is like
Scotch, per your analogy.

One simple question, why allow me to think that Pink Floyd is
"whatever you are talking about" as if you are unfamiliar with them?
Why mislead me so? Obviously you know of them. Was my capitalization
off or some such?
As an erstwhile parent of teenagers I once reluctantly permitted a recording
of some crashing and bashing to be played on my stereo during a party many
years ago. That unpleasant experience is the sum total of my knowledge of
said Pink Rock, and best forgotten.

Why ever get mad at me?! There's no reason to do that. I rather enjoy
discussing the Universe with you John. Play nice.
I don't get mad, I walk away. I appreciate sarcasm but only if I know it.
And do not presume me to be nice, I have never claimed to be.

Nice looking rock candy. Impressive extruded "MARGATE ROCK" writing.
Why can't it be Green though?
Giuseppe Verde wasn't into rock, he preferred Oprah.

> You are forever an Asian Yankee.

For the sake of discussion, if I migrate out of USA tomorrow, a strong
possibility given the recent wave of reverse migrations across Earth,
will I still be this Asian Yankee, because of History? If I just move
South, like to Florida, since I like warmer weather, will I then be a
Asian Confederate?

I am forever sure I am not fond of being labeled in any way at all.
Can't be helped. I'm labelled a Limey because British sailors ate limes
to avoid vitamin C deficiency and scurvy.
Go to Texas instead, they are more likely to secede from the union than
any other state. Florida is made of retirees, no industry there except golf.

That's funny. Give me back the tea! I want to take home my colonies
AFAIK it's still at the bottom of Boston harbour. Perhaps it was Japanese

Siobhan is a beautiful name, meaning God's grace. I did look it up but
also had met a nice young waitress who has that name and she shared
its origins. At the same bar from where the blimey Police entrapped me
for my pending DUI charge. Good news, I have got my driving privileges
restored. If I drank only tea, I would not be in this legal mess.
What's funny is, of the strange country this, is they keep drilling
into my head that it's the "Land of the Free" and yet it does not feel
like it. Is that blatant DoubleSpeak or what?! Feels more like a Human
Farm. Always forced to contemplate, what means this Free?

Freedom of speech is guaranteed in the bill of rights. All men are born
free and equal except African slaves. All women are equal but Hillary
Clinton is more equal than others.
Yankee squaw speak with forked tongue.
