I thought I'd follow up a bit on a thread that was happening in the funny things thread: Sharp_One posted an image of terrorist attacks in Europe. I noticed an island of the coast of Italy that was covered in red spots, and that sparked my interest. I couldn't figure out if it was Sardinia or Corsica, so I looked on google maps. Once I knew it was Corsica, I typed in Corsican Terrorism and learned a little bit about something called the National Liberation Front as well as some stories about Muslims in Corsica. I did this while helping my daughter with her homework and playing Elder Scrolls Online and reading over stuff on my phone (and at one point making sure my son pooped. It's a long story, but it ends with him not completing that quest.) Yay for multi-tasking! But really, skimming over a few pieces of information on the internet did not make me feel well-versed on the situation in Corsica, so I posed this question to the forum: It was a bit tongue in cheek, since everyone else was poking fun at the map and I wanted to get in on that. But it was also a legitimate query because we have a number of European posters here and the odds are they will have a better grasp of the situation then I can be expected to get from a wikipedia article. That's actually one of the beautiful things here, we tend to have people from all over the world that can answer rather obscure questions about all sorts of things. Anyways, I was fairly certain that someone would rise to the occasion and fill me in on the situation, and Amentep did not let me down with his clip from the Corsican brothers. Well played sir! I am not sure why I felt the need to write this up, but I figured I'd journal the thought process that goes on sometimes when I post. Right now I'm finishing my breakfast and have put myself about 10 minutes late to get out the door for work. Yikes!
