    The X-axis ain't linear ... or logarithmic ... LOL

    Still like it though. It still conveys meaning.

    I would say, never trust a graph which suggests that WW1 was the pinnacle of British achievement. ^_^

    I would think that the y-axis is overall "power" or maybe landownership, since it did make some gains after WW1.

    I very humbly request your majesty's pardon. I meant no offense. In any case, I am quite sympathetic to the profound losses the British Empire suffered during its decline.

    Should you need your former colony's help yet again in another future war with the continent, please be sure to call upon us, yet again.

    This thread underwent a rather large clean up.

    The topic is not fruitcakes or Britain or Thatcher or Churchill.

    Stay on topic please.

    Do you often make things up?

    The only article I was able to find about it was that one church in Georgia canceled Sunday services because they had already held four services on Christmas, the day before. The article said that it takes about 2000 volunteers to pull off a Sunday service because the crowds are so large - 23,000 over 3 campuses.

    Let's recap: Christmas did not fall on a Sunday. Christmas services were not canceled. Sunday services were canceled because there had already been four services the day before. The Sunday service was canceled so 2000 volunteers could be with their families, not so the parishioners could be with theirs.

    That wasn't even a good try.

    When Christmas Falls on Sunday, Megachurches Take the Day Off - New York Times

    Ah, the NY Times, that bastion of fairness and accuracy. If I could post links I would post a link to my story, which was in the Christian Post, on the same subject, and it explains WHY the decisions were made.

    As usual, the only people who care about this are people who don't go to church anyway.

    And, as even the NY Times pointed out, if you can't get into your megachurch you can always attend one of the liturgical churches.

    Don't whine about a source without providing a solid example why the source cannot be trusted.

    Don't falsely accuse posters of making things up unless you can prove it is true.

    If your false accusation is proven false, apologize to the poster.

    Here is the link to your story.

    Http://www.christianpost.com/news/megachurches-cancel-sunday-services-after-christmas-48196/

    It isnt even the same year that was being referenced when several churches cancelled Sunday services.

    Basically, megachurches suck because they Walmarticize Christ.

    You Brits certainly do take offense easily, it seems.

    Even my humble apology is rebuffed ...



    Oh well ... in the spirit of goodwill, the offer still stands ... ;)

    You gotta love the Brits. Just like the French, they're always there when they need us :D:D

    Either you have a non standard semantic construct for 'humble' and 'apology' or else US Standard English is even further from British Standard English than I imagined.

    It's a wonder any communication is possible.

    Tell me, what do you think any German person here would say if I made a snide comment referring to WWI and WWII to them? Do you think that would be conducive to good relations?

    Just what the world needs; more racism.

    :doh:

    If this is how you speak of your allies, Lord help those you don't like.

    Can I remind everyone that the subject of this thread is those who want to wage war on Christmas. It is NOT Brit OR French bashing.

    Oh come on now. If we went with that there'd be no topic at all! Hard to keep up a discussion on the non-existent. ;)

    Yes, I've heard it said that the US and Britain are two countries divided by a common language.

    Interesting point, Catherineanne. I would hope that honest discussion was possilbe, at least. Humor is often a problem when different languages are spoken. I suppose it's easy to forget that American and Brits have quite different outlooks.

    Have a nice day, Catherineanne. :wave:
