I like how Thresher01 makes the comparison to the ‘D-Day Generation’. In June 1944 the USA also executed a 14 year old boy after a one-day trial with an incompetent defence attorney and police ‘evidence’ that did not warrant the term.

People like Thresher always think things used to be better. Well, back in the 40’s and 50’s America was an institutionally racist and homophobic nation for starters (as was mine, to be fair), and that just scratches the surfaces of the problems in society back then. It wasn’t all milk and honey and white picket fences. Yeah, people ‘respected their elders’, and sometimes those ‘elders’ would abuse that position because it was assumed they were always right. At the same time women weren’t supposed to have ‘proper’ jobs and sex was a taboo subject. Yeah, what a lovely society it must have been...

Hang on, actually, I can see why ‘back in the day’ really appeals to most of TNP...


Cancer, diabetes and heart disease would have finished off most of the TMPers back then, so that's another plus!

Otto was a twat, but we are all wargamers, gloating at a fat old bloke dropping dead seems a bit...unwise.

Nah they didn't no more than previous and no more than today ....
ie
In his 1624 book The Wise-Man's Forecast against the Evill Time, Thomas Barnes, the minister of St. Margaret's Church on New Fish Street in London, bemoaned:
Youth were never more sawcie, yea never more savagely saucie . . . the ancient are scorned, the honourable are contemned, the magistrate is not dreaded.

In Book III of Odes, circa 20 BC, Horace observed:
Our sires' age was worse than our grandsires'. We, their sons, are more worthless than they; so in our turn we shall give the world a progeny yet more
corrupt.

Would have like this to be true but it seems to be spurious.
Socrates (469–399 B.C.)
The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.

So harking back to the good old days is old men being conservative because their memory is shit basically.

That's a lie. everything was better in the old days. Long school holidays... The Goodies on TV... No foreigners anywhere, penis still working, able to walk 30 feet without panting and sweating, Women in attractive mini-skirts, Pop Music actually good - proper music like The Clash, the Stranglers, Stiff Little Fingers - not like music today, which isn't music at all, just screaming I call it.

Life today is shit. But not as Shit as it is for poor, dear Otto.

I mean, as long as we are talking about those ruff, tuff, snowflake hatin’, greatest generation worshippin’, non-nonsense TNPers, you’d think they’d be able to handle the simple word “dead” without going into a flutter.

Maybe the picture of kicking it alone in a toy-filled basement due to a cardiac blowout is a bit too... er, real for most of them. But surely the gentlemen who routinely talk about setting up convention games based on school shootings are stoic enough to simply say “Otto has died”?

It's almost certainly because, in a country living in a land of make-believe, 'died' might ruffle the feathers of those who believe no-one ever dies... after all, the Lard Jaysas has promised them precisely that.

was Otto pro-gun? I sort of assume so, as he was an arse - but he also had some sensible opinions shining through the stupid mass, like when my mum's dog ate her wedding ring.

If so, let's go full 'American Dream', and take it as read that Otto died in the arms of the Heroine, after blowing away 30 terrorists who were shooting blonde kids on a school-bus in a Nebraska Cornfield to the sound of steel guitar. That sounds much better.

Americans can't handle the 'D' word. It's all cosy euphemisms when someone dies in the USA.

The best one I've seen lately is 'gone to glory' FFS. :roll:

“Passed” is still my favorite. As if life were a pop quiz or a bowel movement.
