Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II Turns 93

Postby Lanorth » Sat Apr 20, 2019 10:03 pm

The title explains it all, really. Today, on Sunday the twenty-first of April, 2019, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and The Commonwealth Realms has turned 93 years old, further extending her reign as the longest serving British monarch in history. What do you think of this event?

Congrats to the Queen. May her continued rule over the occupied territories be short. (This is a vote to leave, not a Queen die post)

Even the apologists of industrialism have been obliged to admit that some economic evils follow in the wake of the machines. These are such as overproduction, unemployment, and a growing inequality in the distribution of wealth. But the remedies proposed by the apologists are always homeopathic. They expect the evils to disappear when we have bigger and better machines, and more of them. Their remedial programs, therefore, look forward to more industrialism.

Sorry about the mistake. I have just stayed up twenty-four hours. Trust me. I am tired. Edited. :)

Her mother lived to be one-hundred-and-one, so there is a chance. Her father on the other hand, His Majesty King George VI, lived to be fifty-six.

Although North Korea only has to survive for another 2 years before Kim Il-sung surpasses him as longest ruling head of state.

Sure he is -technically- dead, but he's still the president.

I'd like to wish Her Majesty a happy birthday, even though it technically won't be her birthday in my time zone* for another two hours. Though I don't live in a Commonwealth country, I do work in one, and I still consider her my Queen no matter what my neighbors south of the border think.

*Where and when I am now, it's technically Hitler's birthday, the 20th anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre, the 9th anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon oil disaster, and a holiday for marijuana smokers. Not really a day I want to celebrate. I'll try and post again here tomorrow morning when it's actually her birthday in Washington state and British Columbia.

True. Kim Il-Sung the eternal leader? The 'Eternal President', as he is known as? This is mad.

God save the Queen, etc etc, fuck I don't know. I mean, she's probably a fine gal, probably sweet as can be, I just don't see the purpose in the royal family.

They give England a certain flare I guess. Makes them look special and all that. Plus I imagine they are a good draw for tourists and such. And a source of scandal from time to time I would imagine. And should one day the British people realize democracy is a failed experiment they have something to fall back on. So that's a bonus.
Purpelia does not reflect my actual world views. In fact, the vast majority of Purpelian cannon is meant to shock and thus deliberately insane. I just like playing with the idea of a country of madmen utterly convinced that everyone else are the barbarians. So play along or not but don't ever think it's for real.



The above post contains hyperbole, metaphoric language, embellishment and exaggeration. It may also include badly translated figures of speech and misused idioms. Analyze accordingly.

Democracy is great, I mean, c'mon. Has a fair share of intrinsic issues, but we should fight to preserve democracy as hard as we can. Figured I'd address that little addendum you added to your post there.

As for the "flare," s'pose I agree. I mean, it's pointless, yeah? Not harmful, not a huge issue, but nothing of substance either. The UK could likely do fine with or without the Queen and the entirety of the Royal Family, really they're a relic, and if the UK feels that relic is worth maintaining, then that's just fine, I couldn't care less. As a Yank, I quite clearly have more pressing issues to stress over.
