edit An intellectually stimulating conversation

My apology over the contest stuff, but I have no computer access again for over a week with no end in sight. I'm at a public computer for a couple of hours. So the Poo Lit Surprise and me seem to have parted ways mechanically and cyberspacily. Your kind mention above of breaking a collab in order to do the collab with me now lays in ruins, with hurt feelings and cries of despair, and my shame is unending (at least until I eat some popcorn). I hope to be back soon but no idea when right now. Could you work with Puppy on the warning label thing, and very good luck with your exams and your writing. Back when I can (and when I logged on I saw the Moon page was featured - thanks! Lots of people helped with that, and I'm going to have to write up a talk page thank you on the article's talk page itself). Aleister 14:51 18-6-'13

After just walking out of an extremely agrivating debate with someone about the nature of atheism this is exactly what I needed to relax me and cheer me up, thank you so much for those heart warming comments. Don't despair, User:Sinner George is requesting a collab with anyone if you do get back on. I will mention the content warning to Puppy, I have to say there hasn't been talk of it for weeks and I can't talk to Spike about it as he dismisses it and won't respond as he says that he has expressed his views, which, rightfully, he has so I'm not sure where to pursue and keep our argument going. Thanks. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 16:49, June 18, 2013 (UTC)
Where are my manners? Well done on your feature, Al, it definitely deserved it. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 16:53, June 18, 2013 (UTC)
Your manners were left on the floor after your debate on the nature of atheism. Thanks for the kind words. I had asked Puppy to prepare the content warning page, and when it is ready and many people like it I would think it would become the "new" warning (it seems to have won the vote handily, with some good users chirping in). I wish you luck and goodwill in the contest, and it doesn't look like I will be joining. Funnybony added lots of content to the preface of the Moon page which has ended up on the front page, even though it was "agghhhhhhhh" and I reverted much of it (a few good words still used though). He may not have wrapped his head around the whole page, and see who wrote the original 2038 book (it was the French ambassador, see near the end of the article for authorship credit to Mr. LsTree). I'll check in when I can next check in! Keep on acing those exams and sending all the atheists to hell. Aleister 17:25 18-6-'13
Thanks once again. Exams finish tomorrow so the hell has been accomplished. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:29, June 18, 2013 (UTC)
Finally finished!!! Soon you can party like it's 1999! We will have to argue atheism and its nature when I officially return. I'm not an atheist but a half-ist. I like Robert Anton Wilson's description of himself, an "agnostic mystic". I'm at a library and the guy across from me is all agitated because a nice looking girl sat at the next table, he keeps swinging his head over to look at her and then back to his computer screen again, real quick (with an off look on his face). Creepoid kind of guy. She'd better run and not stop running until the creep and I run out of breath chasing her. Run Pretty Girl, Run!!! Aleister 17:37 18-6-'13
Yes well the actual argument was that empericist atheism (my belief) is actually a form of agnosticism as atheism is the denial of belief in God and not of God itself. There is no empirical proof to say that a being exists outside of the universe as it is impossible to measure however there is proof he has never interacted with the universe (apart from the possibility of creating it) and therefore I am atheist or anti-religionist. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 18:28, June 18, 2013 (UTC)
Be careful ScottPat, an absence of proof of divine interaction is not proof of absence of divine interaction (non existance of proof does not prove something does not exist or occur). I agree with Empirical Agnostic Scepticism. Claiming we can know for certain that something doesn`t exist or happen is not any part of Empiricism nor Scepticism nor Agnosticism...as far as I know them. The rules of physics may seem absolute but one single exception in the non observable past or the unpredictable future or even what we are incapable of experiencing now would shatter such `absolute` laws and our certainty of them or lack of them. --ShabiDOO 13:06, June 19, 2013 (UTC)
Quite. Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 19:36, June 19, 2013 (UTC)
The future is theoretically predictable (and so is the unobserved past). As long as you know the exact direction and speed of the particles that first came out of the Big Bang then any event in the history of the Universe can be predicted. However the calculations involved in taking into account every single particle (of energy or matter) and every single reaction that ever occured and all that would probably take more power in energy and matter than exists in the current universe. However it is still theoretically possible and therefore any interaction with particles of energy and matter in the Universe that was not made with another particle of energy or matter (i.e. God) after the Big Bang could be empirically proven. Empirical laws have solved so much in the Universe, I have no doubt they will answer so many more limitless questions as long as we have the will to stick with and support our industry and scientific research. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 20:31, June 20, 2013 (UTC)
Quantum physics blows a (currently) insurmountable hole in the idea of predicting the future based on "knowing" where all particles are and their trajectory/velocity. And so would an interfering god blow a big hole in any theory ... which there almost certainly isn't ... but still being a 0.000000000000001% possibility. Empirical study is the the pinnical of the development of western civilization ... the greatest achievement ever in the history of humanity ... however no amount of empirical study will ever give you 100% certainty of anything ... nor 100% certainty that something doesn't exist/occur. --ShabiDOO 21:06, June 20, 2013 (UTC)
Fair enough quatum physics does currently disprove that theory however I think quatum physics still requires more development and evidence for the newest theories to be excepted which no doubt one day will happen as long as we don't squander our scientific research in the upcoming years so my theory could be wrong but it is not certain quite yet.
Anyway for me believing in God is a traitorous move towards the human race. It is lack of self-confidence in ourselves not only in how we run our lives but in the ability of our understanding. If you believe in him in a religious sense then it is subduing to a totalitarian dictator and accepting you are a serf instead of rising up against him. One of the reasons I'm a monarchist is that I have an urge in life to rank myself in society and feel that I have someone superior to me (as I believe many religious people do) however I would rather choose my superior to be someone who benefits me more and who upholds the values of science which were the basis of the enlightenment (which still continues to this day and as you said is the greatest human achievement of this world) instead of someone who may or may not exist and never bothers to let me know.
I'm also a bit fed up of philosophy in general and this whole saga has reminded me why I gave it up a while ago. Life is more enjoyable if you attempt a challenge and whether you succeed or fail you enjoy the process of doing that challenge. Philosophy seems to me to be a thing where whoever points out we don't know everything, is correct. Say some clever sounding words, translate them into Latin and sit in an isolated area hidden from life to think for ages. How boring can people get? Just jump into life and work out some more answers to questions don't bother trying to satisfy yourself with a definitive answer to everything now otherwise you will be very bored. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 07:33, June 21, 2013 (UTC)

If you are passionately arguing with a friend that you can prove that god doesn't exist, then you are clearly still interested in metaphysical problems. But metaphysics is just one tiresome subject of many in philosophy. Applied philosophy offers lots of challenges which have little to do with games on words. Its problem based: Explaining conciousness and its implications on artificial inteligence, personal identity and autonomy and how much of it we can independantly control. Can scientism lead to public ethics or should it remain cultural? Should religiously fenatic parent be allowed to refuse them medical treatment. Is it abusive to instil fear in your children regarding hell or metaphysical punishment?. Is our view of beauty based on evolutionary qualities...how much is culturally based? Is a mixed capitalist/socialist state the end of idealism and if not is further progress possible? Should absolute libertarianism be embraced? Quantum logic problems. How can we regulate cloning and dna information discimination ( think of the movie gattica)? Does infinate regress explain complex systems or emergent phenomenon? Is there a difference between tribal and professional art? Should government funded art galleries pay 10 million dollars for a white canvass with a black dot on it? How can system theory adapt to the increasingly complex and to four dimentional theory? Is it possible to merge rationalised thought with traditional wisdom or should only ratioalised thought be embraced? The response delay problem. Is post modernism useless and dying...should it be? How much of personal taste is just mimickery? Literary darwinism. Trinary code. Is schroedingers cat a meaningful problem? How should human colonization be managed/governed? The ethics of time travel. What role does humour play in sober discussion? To quote only some examples. --ShabiDOO 11:50, June 21, 2013 (UTC)

Yes hence my love of politics which I deem to be applied philosophy. I think that it is good to judge philosophy on where your loyalties lie. Mine are with Queen, Country and human race. I believe that the best possible world is one that is always changing and progressing and one that people take enjoyment in the proccess of doing challenges not enjoyment from completion of those challenges. Ultimately in a sort of utilitarian way I believe everyone should be allowed to have fun and enjoy life as that is what is most important. By using this as a rule I can then answer these applied philosophical questions through politics. However questions like "Who am I?" "Where am I from" seem to be simply answered scientifically and then job done. Short answer instead of wasting human intelligence sitting talking about it for ages.
It is not right for me to say there should be no philosophers however I do not see too much point to them and see any relevant philosophical questions being answered either by directly by science or indirectly by science through the application of scientific means to politics. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 14:21, June 21, 2013 (UTC)
Science will decide what is moral, the law and what is good art? --ShabiDOO 15:32, June 21, 2013 (UTC)
Yes of course. Science influences our reasoning as why we see things as moral or beautiful in the case of art. Seeing as the only influence in the World is science then there can be no other reason for deciding what is moral and beautiful. Before the enlightenment law was highly unscientific and illogical with witches being determined by odd methods. Now we live in an age in which everyone uses scientific methods whether it be in science, humanities or art. What some people especially theists seem to get wrong is that science isn't just one part of the Universe and that things such as humanities lie outside of science. Science is the Universe. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 15:47, June 21, 2013 (UTC)
Ahhhh sweet fundamentalism. --ShabiDOO 16:49, June 21, 2013 (UTC)
I use the term strong atheist/empirical atheist. Fundamentalist is a term usually used to refer to extreme religious people and extreme right-wing people. Seeing as I am neither I prefer the description liberal, socialist (or left-wing), strong atheist. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 16:59, June 21, 2013 (UTC)
A fundamentalist is someone who has absolute conviction in their ideology, leaves no room for doubt or alternative theories and who is convinced that their philosophy is the future, the only future, it will solve everything and that everyone else should realise it. Its not necesarily a bad thing...just depends on what the subject is and to how aggresive they are in propogating it. There are fundamentalists who are monsters and others who are delightful. Even some of the most amazing minds today have absolute convictions. But yeah...its still fundamentalism. --ShabiDOO 20:25, June 21, 2013 (UTC)
I never disagreed that I was not a fundamentalist (at least in philosophy, in politics I would consider my views liberal) however I simply prefer to call myself a strong atheist, it sounds cooler and in modern slang (at least where I come from) we associate fundamentalism with right-wing religious belivers even though those of us who are strong atheists are fundamentalists ourselves. However I live on one of the most liberal and atheistic places in the World and that might suggest why fundamentalism where I come from is associated with religion. In fact my class is noticed quite well for being socialist, liberal-thinking and athesitic but then that is a huge generalisation. To provide any more help to show where my views lie, I agree very much with Dawkins and Hitchens and they are great heroes of mine. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 20:39, June 21, 2013 (UTC)
PS - I do not agree that I leave no room for doubt as one of the empirical rules is to question your findings and make sure it fits all tests and I have also changed political ideology a few times so as a liberal I accept change. The developed world is very right-wing at the moment, even the Labour Party, we can't let ourselves keep swinging back and forth on a pendulum from one extreme to another. A centre-liberal country is the way forward. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 20:44, June 21, 2013 (UTC)

Why do you want this article deleted from userspace? If you have copied it to mainspace, you should instead move this one so that your prior versions and change history will be preserved in case you want to reinsert deleted material. Spıke ¬ 06:44 19-Jun-13

I have never copied this article to mainspace. The current mainspace article is not mine but I think it is an awful article. I attempted to re-write it with this however can never make myself get round to it so I'd like it deleted please.

edit Isle of Man

You were justified in deleting two initial quotations from this article, as they are vanilla Gay jokes that have nothing to do with the Isle of Man, although one of them has somewhat to do with islands. However, I thought they were cuter than the average Wildeisms. Perhaps you can find them a home somewhere else. Spıke ¬ 04:10 26-Jun-13

OK. Haven't a clue where to dump them though. The Virgin Isles (not islands) are not part of the Isle of Man and the Isle of Lesbos is obviously made up. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 05:25, June 26, 2013 (UTC)
Sorry not to post at the bottom, but just had to interrupt. The Isle of Lesbos is very much a real place (in Greece, I believe), and is where lesbians take their name. Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 00:32, June 28, 2013 (UTC)

edit UnSignpost

Hello again! You said that you would not be there during this and the following week, so I had to create the UnSignpost. But I can see that you are. So, should I still do it? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:14, June 26, 2013 (UTC)

Ok, I should have been more clear. I'm not going to go inro great detail but I'm doing something some work this week that means that I am out all day and only am here in evenings and early mornings. I therefore do not have time to write articles so please write this week's UnSignpost, thanks. Next week I am actually away and will put the sign up on my userpage. Thanks.Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:55, June 26, 2013 (UTC)

Ok. I am also present here in the evening only but I will find some time. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 18:02, June 26, 2013 (UTC)

Could you, please, tell me how you do to find an article for "Newsroom ... of the week"? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 19:07, June 27, 2013 (UTC)

Just choose a random news/poetia/scipts/howto/why article you like and bung it in. Thanks. What is with "Corporal" in the name by the way? Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 19:12, June 27, 2013 (UTC)
My guess is that he weighs in at 150 kg and meant to write corporeal. Spıke ¬ 19:25 27-Jun-13
I am afraid I don't have the knowledge behind the terminology to understand the joke although considering corporal means "to do with the body" I guess it is another way of saying overweight. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 19:30, June 27, 2013 (UTC)
You sometimes need to have a bit of military education in order to defend your virtual country. And it also sounds better (or seems better). Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 20:05, June 27, 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for the information about the Un... of the week, I will incorporate it in the next issue. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 20:06, June 27, 2013 (UTC)
So true about the military education. Spoken like a true Russian there. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 20:19, June 27, 2013 (UTC)
When you let a Russian into the coalition, he takes care to choose the ministry involving firearms. (And printing presses.) Spıke ¬ 20:32 27-Jun-13
Hahaha! Yep. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 20:38, June 27, 2013 (UTC)
Well, as you did not really understand what the word Corporal meant, I will have to change it and give myself a higher army rank. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:59, June 28, 2013 (UTC)
I did understand what a corporal was however I did not realise you actually meant army corporal. Be careful as there are actually ranks for Uncyclopedia so you can't just say you are a lieutenant as people work hard to earn them. Major Spike can tell you whether they are still in use or not though. If they weren't then trust me I would have stuck a rank in front of my name by now. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 20:03, June 28, 2013 (UTC)
It's at Uncyclopedia:Order_of_Uncyclopedia. And there's more, at Uncyclopedia:Awards, Decorations and Honours. Spıke ¬ 20:31 28-Jun-13
Well then correct me if I'm wrong and I don't mean to be harsh but I don't think Anton is allowed to sport that rank (unless he has been promoted without my knowledge). Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 20:35, June 28, 2013 (UTC)

On the contrary, I have spent ten minutes studying these pages and found out that there is nothing such as "Lieutenant" or "Corporal". There is the First Lieutenant but it is different. So I am afraid I will keep this rank. If I have made a mistake, you can tell me. And by the way I did not understand how you getball these unmilitary ranks... And I was also wondering if I am the Commander of the Order, as it is written "or the Writer of Featured Articles". Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 20:20, June 29, 2013 (UTC)

Perhaps it is different in the British Army to the ranks on Uncyc but in the British army it goes, Junior Under Officer, Second Lieutenant, Lieutenant, Captain, Major. First Lieutenant is only a rank in the British Navy. Yes you are a Commander. Thanks. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:58, July 6, 2013 (UTC)

  • So, there is a vandal Brit Slayer who changes his IP adresses and usernames (he was Reverend P. Pussyfeather and Reverend P.

You can ask Reverend for more details, as the vandla tried to damage his talk page after seeing that he reverted him.
  • The Jacobite Rebellion got deleted and you can create a redirect to the Last King of Scotland now.
  • I have written a Review of your Schlieffen Pan and posted it the talk page of the article.

Concerning me, I have created a forum "All the uncycs" about reuniting, created an account at the fork and began editing there as well under the same username. I caused a lot of people talking about our reuniting but it is obvious that if it does happen, it is not close yet.

  • I did not change my signature, for the reasons mentioned at the end of our talk about it above.

edit United Kingdom? Page

Being a big geography buff, I was navigating the Uncyclopedia pages of the world's 197 countries and happened to notice that there was no United Kingdom, so I searched it and was redirected to the page of Great Britain, the primary island that makes up the country. I continued reading the article and noticed that it is mainly written about the UK, without the title. Great Britain doesn't have a prime minister, president, etc. because it is just an island of the country (Northern Ireland makes up the rest). I heard the you are a knowledgeable person on British trivia, so I'd like to know your opinion. Thanks.--Chocolin (talk) 06:00, July 30, 2013 (UTC)

edit Congrats, and a huh?, and two questions for you or helpful lurkers

Congrats on WotM, richly deserved. Nice. I'm still at a public computer, so no online access at home yet. (as for the Writer of the Year award on your user page, ah, ahem, ah, you may want to....ah, huh?).

A question about something I missed. How did youtube videos get "filed" and not coded as we've had them? Is this a wikia policy I missed? Some of my pages actually have vids that can be played as the reader reads the story (Iron Butterfly for example), so this is weird. On the other hand, did we finally ditch the warning label page????? I hope so. Anyway, congrats again!! Aleister 16:29 6-8-'13

Al, You missed my awarding ScottPat 'Writer of the Year' in 2011 whilst looking for the right template. A touch premature but who knows by December? --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 18:23, August 6, 2013 (UTC)
Not saying he shouldn't have won writer of the year in 2011, but Sog and Black Flamingo would have had to agree to share their templates (neither would have minded if asked nicely). I still think that End of Year Awards should be listed as winners on both sites, although Froggy would have to be listed here and things could go south from there. Aleister 18:32 6-8-'13
I haven't thought that far ahead. Some writers (like you) spill their creative seed on both sites but others prefer one or other now. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 18:42, August 6, 2013 (UTC)
Wait...maybe I don't understand something but was Scott here in 2011? And also why did you delete the template that tells he is on vacation? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 09:56, August 7, 2013 (UTC)
I'm afraid you are again making the mistake of ascribing meaning to the words of Aleister, as when you concluded that he is a female resident of Antarctica. Spıke ¬ 12:33 7-Aug-13

Takes up a lot of the page in my view. Keep the typeface but I preferred the other format when it came to reading it. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 20:57, August 10, 2013 (UTC)

Well, I know it does but in order for it to get the ability to fold itself the format should be changed again and very significantly. Maybe it would be simpler just to warn users about this and ask then to create a subpage for the USPs only? Or should I keep on changing it?

edit Are you still claiming...

...that you deservedly won Writer of the Month, let alone Noob of the Month which you should be still working towards. And let me guess, when you win Writer of the Year you will claim that you deserved it! Ha! Like me, you will have to pay off the voters, promise sex but not always deliver, and slip lots of folding cash into personal bank accounts. But do me a favor and not tell anybody that I told you my secrets of winning Writer of the Year, which you might do without having to go to all that trouble, damn the voter's eyes. And......the warning label is gone! I didn't know, and the past couple of months I've rarely been on the site but had noticed that the label wasn't appearing for a few weeks in a row, and Romartus confirmed it. It's gone! Congrats on standing up on arguing for that editorially basic and common sense route. Aleister 18:06 31-8-'13

If you read the discussion of your discovery that said warning label was missing then you will find out I have congratulated you and there is no need to congratulate me as I played too small a part. I was thinking of doing a spoof warning label for the next UnSignpost as a mark of celebration. Thanks for the tips Al, as always "live long and Oscar gloucester ah...custarder!" Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 18:25, August 31, 2013 (UTC)
Bullcow! You played a very big part in coming up and pushing for a reasonable warning label, and once a reasonable warning label had been voted on and won maybe that made them say "ta hell with it" and join the freedom fighters. Just guessing there, I have no idea how it occurred. I'm just now looking at forums and older forums, haven't done that too much the last few months, so I missed lots of what happened with the label. Live Long and lobster. Aleister minutes later

edit Wallet on VFD

Although VFD is not strictly down-to-business, the current discussion of the basis for one joke in the Intro of the nominated article is going too far afield for VFD's historical norms. I have moved it here. Spıke ¬ 15:04 2-Sep-13

Fair enough. It was too interesting to leave without a proper ending! Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 16:32, September 2, 2013 (UTC)

  • The Intro is promising. (Wallets could not have swept up the banks! they're not Jewish!) Then Section 1 drops me with a thud. "It is guessed that" author had nothing more he wanted to say.

  • Jews have always been asscoiated with money/banks/fortune, etc. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 12:50, September 1, 2013 (UTC)
  • Perhaps in Nazi Germany and Modern America but most of the rest of the World barely make jokes about Jews because Jews are so integrated into our societies. In countries where societies are segregated based on religion, I am not surprised that Jews get a lot of stick. Jews have been in English society for so many hundreds of years to tell the truth, so Americans and English people probably have a bit of Jew in all of them. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 19:15, September 1, 2013 (UTC)
  • Although we did expel all of them from 1290 until the 1660s, and then have anti-Jewish marches through the east-end in the late 1930s. Other than that I'm sure we were welcoming hosts - other then the York pogrom. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Sog1970 (talk • contribs)
  • However despite the fact we "expelled" them, most did not go as they were usually in valuable role in society such as economic roles. Barely any support for facists was given or has been given ever in this country. Oswald Mosley's version of the Munich Putsch was broken up by East Londoners themselves before the police even arrived! Considering how big a shop Marks and Spencers is, it would be wrong to say that Jews have been oppressed in our society. The Catholics have probably had it worse.

edit British owning everything!

A team of researchers take a Russian, an Englishman, a Frenchman and a Jew, and show everyone the same movie: a man and a woman are walking in the desert, it is extremely hot and both of them are thirsty and hungry, but the man takes out an orange and gives it to the woman. Then the research team asked everyone the same question: "What is the man's nationality?"

Frenchman: Of course, he is French! He is so gallant and polite with a woman!

Englishman: This is definitely an Englishman! Look at his endurance and self-control!

Russian: He is just stupid. He should have eaten it himself.

Jew: There is no doubt; the man is Jewish. How else would he be able to find an orange in the desert?! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:27, September 2, 2013 (UTC)

You see an Englishman would always bring the most exotic of fruits into the most harsh environments. Why? Just to see what it feels like. After all, not only does he own the country with the desert that he is walking in, he also owns the country where they made the orange. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:33, September 2, 2013 (UTC)

Chad? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:59, September 3, 2013 (UTC)
Part of France, so you can have it two ways. Either we beat France many times (Waterloo and Agincourt) and therefore we owned Chad or if you think that it doesn't count because Chad was ruled by French after 1900 then it became part of Vichy France which we owned in the North African War. Do you really wish to continue or excpet the fact we owned every country. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:11, September 4, 2013 (UTC)
You beat me! But Russia is not a country. It is a continent. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 18:31, September 4, 2013 (UTC)
I'm surprised that you did not point out that we neither owned Ukraine nor Chad but we "owned dem" (South London slang for "beat them!"). My point still stands though.

Liechtenstein remains unbeaten, I believe (except that accidental Swiss invasion a few years back). Do I detect a hint of patriotism in Scott's writing? Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 17:20, September 5, 2013 (UTC)
I am quite a patriotic person. My country makes me feel part of a group of people with a common cause. It provides me with freedom, healthcare, protection etc. Of course I question my country's actions constantly but overall I love my country and of course my Queen.
Liechenstein. OK so it was part of Holy Roman Empire until France took control of Holy Roman Empire in 1806 and was then a member of the Confederation of the Rhine promoting the Principality of Liechenstein to being an ally of the French Empire. The French and her allies were then defeated by the coalition forces including Britain, final defeat administered by Britain, Prussia, Hannover, Dutch States at Battle of Waterloo. Furthermore it was an ally of Austro-Hungary in WW1 and thus defeated by the Brits and allies.

Quote: "There isn't a country on Earth that the British haven't owned." Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:51, September 5, 2013 (UTC)
OK, OK, God, Harry, and St. George &c. &c., but I don't think you can really argue that we have much of a common cause. The recent shambles over Syria in Parliament recently shows that nicely. To think that we were 7 votes away from war, and no-one even cares! I don't think you can claim to "own" countries by proxy. Liechtenstein, with its non-existent army, remains yet unbeaten. The only desert on that list I'd agree with is Australia: the Sahara was almost entirely French; Antarctica officially unclaimed but really Norwegian/American; and the Arab desert largely independent/uninhabited. The honest truth is, I'm afraid, that England has seen a significant decline in her fortunes over the past 50 years, and that trend will only continue. Not to be in any way pessimistic, but we, along the with the rest of the Old Order and the West, are dying out. In another fifty years we'll be an impoverished, subjugated protectorate of one of the two or three true countries left (most likely China). Unless, of course, the worst really does happen, and the EU finally finish what they were set up for. Who knows? Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 22:21, September 6, 2013 (UTC)
Perhaps take time to read the discussion your Reverend. I meant both definitions of "owned" including the slang definition "to beat someone."
It's is a good thing that we did not go to war against Syria as it would prolong a conflict that is unnecesary. The only way a country can democratise and liberate itself is an internal change, a process that lasts a few hundred years but produces good results. Results that could never be achieved by foreign intervention. However thanks to our close ties to the Us I can see us going to war shortly, which will be sad that we put so much faith in another country's decision when we have made ours.
As for the deserts. The French owned a large part of the Sahara but so did the British especially when we defeated the Vichy French and Italians in North Africa. Most of the Antarctic is not administered by any government apart from one small bit called "The British Antarctic Territory" which is an overseas territory part of the UK. As far as I am aware we are the only nation to govern over a bit of Antarctica and before that territory had been a lot bigger so we ruled over part of that desert. The desert near Saudi Arabia despite a low population was still mostly owned by the British leading the extremely heroic and famous "Lawrence of Arabia" (Can never remember whether it was T.E Lawrance or T.H Lawrence. One's an author, one's a soldier!) to help the Arabs get their land back from both Turks and British. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 08:22, September 7, 2013 (UTC)

Even though Britain can own a part of Antarctica officially, this is not so in reality, as because of the climate there, nobody can live in Antarctica for more than five years (or even less, I don't remember well). Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 19:25, September 7, 2013 (UTC)

However the territory is permanently inhabited (excluding 6 months of winter each year) as only scientists live there who rotate around every year. Still inhabited and still protected by the Crown and everything at the Crown's disposal. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 19:34, September 7, 2013 (UTC)
Oh, ok. Well then, I don't want to debate on it. Britain owns everything except for anything that belongs to Russia. Everything else is French. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 20:15, September 7, 2013 (UTC)
Using my two definition of "owned" rule: Britain beat France millions of times (Napoleonic Wars for instance) and Russia in Crimean War. So we owned them too. You know I'm taking this jokily! Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 20:26, September 7, 2013 (UTC)
Whichever definition you use, my point is that you can't "own" things by proxy, ie. if X "owns" Y, and Y "owns" Z, X doesn't necessarily "own" Z. The contest has yet to be decided. All territorial claims to Antarctica have been (voluntarily) surrendered in an international treaty, and are illegal. Countries, including the UK, maintain "zones of interest", but the UK is not alone in doing this, or in inhabiting the continent. Numerous stations, run by a large number of countries, inhabit Antarctica year round, but no military presence is allowed, due to the international nature of the territory. The strongest claim to the territory is Norwegian, based on the age-old custom of finders-keepers.
Syria would indeed have been bad. The important thing to remember is that there are no good guys: both sides are utter bastards.
TE Lawrence is the one you're thinking of (DH Lawrence was a smutty author with no real merit in the 60s). He (a Briton) led a revolt against the Turks, promising independence, and then was forced by his superiors to betray the Arabs after the War, forming a very brief British protectorate (not real ownership, and not over the actual desert). This resulted in various uprisings and much violence, and is the generally accepted reason for much of the instability in the region today. Remember, the whole mess with Israel is almost entirely our fault. Patriotism is OK to a limit, but don't forget that we've been pretty bad at stuff too. Learn a lesson from Lichtenstein! Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 20:56, September 7, 2013 (UTC)
Not sure where this "proxy" rule is coming from. When I said "owned" I meant either the South London slang "to beat" or the formal English spelling. Therefore when y is fighting x and z and y defeats both x and z, it owns them. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 05:35, September 8, 2013 (UTC)
PS - As for British Antarctic Territory, in British eyes it is a territory, it was most certainly before the treaty came in place (therefore we did own part of the desert) and we are still naming regions there even today showing that we care about it. Seeing as no one's going to make threats to us for the territory, legal or not legal in reality we own it.

I would undo you except that the gigantic federal data-mining operation would send agents to my home; I will probably get a tax audit just for forming the URL with which to look at your changes. In view of our notions of extraterritoriality, you aren't completely safe either. I would have this page voted for deletion, as it combines its title theme with serious rants against specific individuals, including one current one with effectively unlimited power and no persuasive opposition, but Puppy and Simsie won't delete any FA.

My reason for this action was I saw a featured article without a picture and thought that it needed an image so I found one suitable. I am struggling to understand what you are saying. Are you implying that the FBI will track me down for it (and you if you edited)?
I agree it would be a VFD candidate and am suprised to see it featured. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 15:40, September 7, 2013 (UTC)

edit Bro Rape

Proceedings can commence once you do the author the service of tagging his article with the {{VFD}} notification. Real bastards of our past have invalidated nominations for this violation, which would make you wait one month before re-applying. Spıke ¬ 19:05 9-Sep-13

God I don't know what you see in me Spike but I have a reputation to keep (never getting banned) so I shall comply immediatly. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 19:42, September 9, 2013 (UTC)

You should know better than to admit to an Admin that you are a ban virgin! Please accept your token ban with my compliments. Now I will see if I can reduce it below the 2 hours which is the softest amount shown on my pulldown menu so you can get some edits in this evening. Spıke ¬ 20:15 9-Sep-13

What's wrong with us? I thought it was only on the fork that admins would give joke-bans to anyone! And if it isn't a joke-ban, I don't understand what was wrong with Scott's actions (he just forgot a VFD tag). Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 08:29, September 10, 2013 (UTC)
Oh don't fret Anton! Spike's got a good sense of humour. Precisely what I would have done. Thanks for the compliments as well, Spike. (Did I mention Anton's never been banned!)Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 16:23, September 10, 2013 (UTC)
Joke bans were on this wiki before the fork and if they were from Admins to users...it was often funny. Admins banning each other was different. I and other users found it pretty unfunny after the 1000th time and even more unfunny when the best of the best was selected for unsignpost. But I know that some users found it extremely helarious.
