Senle ilgili bir şey söylemedim, be yavru kuş. Espri kelimesinin İngilizcede karşılığı yok, zaten Türkçede de Fransızca bir kavram diyorum. Yani olan her şey kötü bir espri gibi, siktiret demek istedim. Benim yaptığım da espriydi.
Öyleyse tamam : )

Espri kelimesi Türkçede hemen daima şaka, komiklik vs. olarak algılanıyor ama aslında detay bir nüansı var; ince bir noktaya gönderme yapmak gibisinden. Zaten yazdığın iletide de bu var. İnce görmüşsün hanım ablacım : )

I'm serious. Politically the farthest point of everything Western Civilisation created and deemed as progressive is pointing to 'me' in the common fantasy. Well, of course not me, as in me. Doesn't matter what it is, it's always been just bullshit anyway and everyone knows it. I am just bored.     

Don't be bored.  If you are bored, you will sit down.  If you sit down the Langoliers will catch up to you!

There is no common English equivalent of what we call 'espri' in Turkish, which is French, SF, but there are in many other languages. :)

Correct.  "Elan" in French.  It is part of the myth of French knighthood that should have died at Agincourt, but continued on into WW I, causing the death of 1,385,300 Frenchmen.  Basically assaulting machine gun nests without any real strategy other than attrition.  This failed previously during the Franco-Prussian war where the German "needle" gun (rifle) was very effective in creating kill zones.  By 1940 the French were all out of Elan.  President Macron is now the only Frenchman "ave des balles".  Not claiming much, he only took over after Frau Merkel finally lost "ihre Eier".

Yes, humor is very hard to translate, it is cultural and time specific.

Part of the "Nine Billion Names Of God" ... Arthur C Clarke.  Once I have posted enough to this forum, then by gematria, the last name of G-d will be reached, and then existence blinks out.  Ah ...

Read it.  Can't discuss it though...
