    The Nobel Peace Prize 2012
    We were talking about his Alfred Nobels will, not what the asshole Jagland decided to redefine the prize to become.

    I said that Norwegian politicians who hand out the prize should stop try to redefine the prize and listen more to the original intent of the prize. The prize should at least be given to someone who have done recent achievements to peace. Problem is, recently EU has done the exact opposite.

    Very, very few Nobels are awarded for the work of just the preceding 12 months, not in Peace, Chemistry, Physics, Medicine or Literature. Crick and Watson did not discover the helical structure of DNA in just a year.

    You can't possibly complete a peace work overnight in a year.

    That is why I said it should be recent and not redefined to anytime. He wrote it for a reason. Just because you think the requirement is too tough, does not mean we should discard what he said and make up our own rules. No what you do is to redefine it so it still remains the same intent.

    Also, he never said all the work had to be done last year. That is bad straw man. He talked about the people who have done the most last year.

    I don't know if this has been mentioned, but there are some who think that NATO, rather than the EU, should've gotten the Nobel Peace Prize. Talk about irony!

    Pretty sure the Nobel became a joke long before this.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    You know what? **** it, everybody gets a Nobel peace prize. Ricky, Joe, that homeless guy ****ting on the wall of the courthouse, and that stray cat over there, give that little bastard a peace prize too. Everybody wins, just for showing up and doing what they do every day.

    I expect if that happens Oprah will make the announcement.

    That's funny. I wish I thought of that one. I'd have smacked those Euros with it.

    He may have worked on it for many years but proving to the world that he was right happened only once.
