    SYKES TAKE ON - PRETENTIOUSNESS

    Post  Sykes on Sat Aug 10, 2013 12:57 pm

    "We admire the heroism of men like Socrates who try and stand up refusing any form of illusion. But living implies some sort of mise en scène of our fate in order to find in ourselves the character capable to assume the complexity of the real."

    The above appeared on a certain forum right in the middle of a discussion re hiding a crime for 6 years.  The poster, who claims she is a translator, has a tendency to scatter her posts with the odd French word or phrase.  I do not know whether she does this for effect, or because her English is not as good as she claims and she can't find her French/English dictionary.  I would suspect the latter, especially as she has in the past been less than polite about the UK.  Unlike her and her ilk, Brits do not have an ostentatious attitude to life, they just get on with things without trying to show their obvious superiority.   Maybe the Brits are not so hot on languages, but they sure have, over the years, beaten the hell out of a lot of countries who seem to have a superiority complex, one of which, not too far from UK shores, has been clobbered 3 times - or maybe more.  Let me see, where does the train to Woking go from?  Ah, yes, Waterloo.
