The Leo Dickinson post was awesome. I can see both sides, and who is to say who is right and who is wrong.

Alright, I admit...I'm confused.

I think it's insanely cool that Italians are posting...in Italian!

But I don't get it. How do they know what to post unless they speak English and can understand the previous posts written in English?

And if they understand English, why are they posting in Italian on an Engish website where almost no one will understand what they have written?

Hummerchine, it's entirely possible to be able to read a language and not be able to write or speak it worth a damn.

But this still leaves unanswered the question as to why they continue to post in Italian when few here understand it.

I'd be able to help if they wrote in French or German, even Chinese. But I can't help much with the Italian.

Even common, right? This was my own experience with Spanish.

But this still leaves unanswered the question as to why they continue to post in Italian when few here understand it.

Perhaps because they want to argue their point for the record, and don't have more language skills?

It seems strange to me that the pictures of the bolt lines and clusters wouldn't immediately make the whole affair crystal clear to anyone who even glances at them, but if you're still confused after Leo's post, then you probably aren't going to 'get it' no matter how many posts this stretches out to.

Sometimes you're just cold stone.

Maestri's epics on the Torre represents a mad passion, an insanity, an intense romantic affair, it's a huge part of "LIFE"
played out on the grand scale, that's bigger than him, that's not stale, bland, and boiled down to just mere hardware.

Right or wrong in the eyes of us mere mortals we miss this so many times .....

James,

That vid was a record of a crime.

A real crime and hopefully not what this bullshit wank off about little bits of metal left in a rock leads to.

It seems Fondlehisballs makes the case for righteous indignation not being exclusive to any one area of geography.

Congratulations for achieving international d#@&%e bag status !
