From an Anthropological standpoint it is extremely beneficial to understand the viewpoint and background of the person who is attempting to describing something to you.
So.
Here are the thoughts of An American living in Japan.

Im here in Tokyo, Japan for a while making a cultural documentary for children back in the states and I want to share some of my cultural findings with you, Funnyjunk.. findings that I might not be able to share with the youngins.

Supposedly that outro/goodbye was written by him too shortly before he passed away and was put on his twitter by his daughter.

Or it was written by his daughter who helped him write the last few books and will hopefully continue the discworld series.
User avatar #118 - angelious (03/13/2015) [-]
his daughter already has said she wont continue discworld as it is her fathers work.not hers. or something like that.

why would you want her to continue it? Its terry pratchetts special sense of humor that makes the books so amazing. you cant just imitate that and play like nothing happened.

But the Muslims actually have laws telling them to murder people.. just google "convert pay tax or die"

It isn't that "muslim" these have laws, you must understand. It's more that "islamic States" have these law. There is a very important difference.
It's very nice to use a holy book for one's political gain.

And, again, it was no too long ago that we in the untied states used our Holy book to site passages to excuse treating other humans like lesser beings. (and we even have laws that we separate church and state!!!)

[url deleted] :
“Please stop calling them the ‘Islamic State,’ because they are not a state and they are not a religion,” said Ahmed Bedier, a Muslim and the president of United Voices of America, a nonprofit that encourages minority groups to engage in civic life."
(above I linked you a site where muslim leaders are fighting against Islamic States, because they don't believe they are true muslims. They point out where in their holy book it says that they must be kind and forgiving and modest. )

And again, that's my point. Don't get into the lazy mistake of grouping people all together. We are all individuals and can interpret texts or even a gay sunrise differently.

I personally don't think we should "go against" a large group of people based upon one perceived likeness that we learned about through word of mouth- but instead "go against" and blame the ones that make the rules.
And a book is an inanimate object.

User avatar #2 to #1 - livefromtokyo (01/15/2015) [-]

User avatar #3 to #2 - garymuthafuknoak ONLINE (01/15/2015) [-]
I want to teach in Hokkaido, mostly because it has somewhat of a real winter. I am canadian, and the heat I experienced was unfathomable in august. I need some kind of winter to enjoy, plus I heard there are lots of ice festivals It was my first time ever leaving the country. so I never felt heat like that. while I was there I was with an elderly couple that are friends with my family and I was in Ibaraki while I was there.
