jimmy carr did something like that. he texted all of his friends saying, "i found out, cant talk now. text me." all of his friends got really confused except one, who send a one word reply. "how?"

"I once sent a dozen of my friends a telegram saying 'flee at once, all is discovered' They all left town immediatly." WITH THAT KNOWLEDGE WE CAN BUILD CRISTO REDENTOR

Combined with the 2 expansion packs it gains the substance it needs as a sequel.

So yes, but hell, I pirate.

User avatar #141 to #137 - infinitereaper (07/21/2013) [-]
No (there might be a way if I recall, but unless your tech savy I wouldn't count on it) but honestly,

who has that kind of time?

I play on Emperor mode so I have no regrets, its challenging and fun as hell.

It's kinda the same as yelling "Hey, that's my bike!" in a crowded place in a city that has mainly students (or 			*******		). 75 % of people on bikes will start cycling away really fast.

*SIR Authur Conan Doyle

Gods damn it, have some respect
#5 to #3 - johrai (07/21/2013) [-]
Here in 'MURICA we had us a fancy war to get rid of the Monarchy and all their damn classy titles. So, he's just MR. Authur Conan Doyle.
#6 to #5 - JNS ONLINE (07/21/2013) [-]
Just because we don't have a monarchy doesn't me we cannot honor other peoples titles ... or have knights ourselves -- i'm an american too and I was knighted
#8 to #6 - johrai (07/21/2013) [-]
Sure, if you want, go ahead. My point is we fought against the Monarchy for a reason. Additionally, it is illegal in the US for any titles, such as Knight, be recognized in court or any other legal mater.

Also no, you were not Knighted, the KKK doesn't count.
User avatar #9 to #8 - JNS ONLINE (07/21/2013) [-]
the KKK doesn't have anything to do with knights ... I'm pretty sure their leader is the Grand Wizard.
I am a brother of the Knights of Columbus
#17 to #9 - anon (07/21/2013) [-]
HAHAHAHA, congrats you were "knighted" by a pseudo-catholic cult. Also kind of funny how you deny the links between the KoC and the KKK.
User avatar #157 to #17 - JNS ONLINE (07/22/2013) [-]
I've heard people call the KoC a cult before but I've never heard it compared to the KKK ... I'd love to hear your thoughts on the matter
User avatar #13 to #8 - imthecook (07/21/2013) [-]
so? you can still demand to be called Sir JNS by your friends.

also, im pretty sure british government would be better atm.

Knighted for what? And was it by Her Majesty?
User avatar #51 to #28 - captainfuckitall (07/21/2013) [-]
In a comment below, he has a brother in the Order of the Knights of Columbus. I suppose that would make him an honorary member (unless he actually does do work for them. In that case, good for him)
User avatar #156 to #51 - JNS ONLINE (07/22/2013) [-]
I don't have a brother in it, I am a brother in it.
the Knights of Columbus is technically a religious fraternity so it's members are brothers as well as knights

So? Wouldn't you be upset if someone didn't honour your proper title, even if it wasn't a part of their culture (seeing as you earned it)
User avatar #82 to #3 - lordmoldywart (07/21/2013) [-]
Nobility is ******** , nobody should be considered superior to others
User avatar #151 to #82 - captainfuckitall (07/21/2013) [-]
He's not considered superior, but he was knighted as a sign of grand duty and character, we should respect that
User avatar #152 to #151 - lordmoldywart (07/21/2013) [-]
Any respectable person wouldn't want others to call them by their title, it shows they don't have an ego. I sincerely hope Arthur Conan Doyle didn't require others to call him by his title, if he did he has no respect from me. If he didn't require others to call him by his title, he has my respect, and that also means you shouldn't require others to call him by his title
User avatar #153 to #152 - captainfuckitall (07/21/2013) [-]
Despite the fact I don't subscribe to the christian or catholic faith, I still call priests "Father", because that's their title and they spent years working diligently to earn it and deserve the respect that comes with it

He DESERVES to have an ego, whether he has one or not. I'm sure the title wasn't given to him because it was 'Knighting Day', he probably had to do very hard and important tasks in order to get it. Whether he asks you to call him by his title or not, you SHOULD, because he worked incredibly hard to have it. You would never in a million years call a doctor or a judge "dude", because that's stupid and disrespectful. You'd call them "doctor" and "your honour", because that's their position that they worked to achieve. Paying homage to titles just means YOU respect their diligence and efforts
User avatar #154 to #153 - lordmoldywart (07/21/2013) [-]
By title you know that I meant noble titles, don't spin this off on a tangent

Sure people who work hard to deserve to be respected, but my beef with noble titles is that there are/were many normal, working-class people who work/worked a lot harder and get/got no respect or recognition whatsoever. For Doyle to be respected and recognised and for much harder-working people not to be, is ludicrous in my opinion and is why I don't think he deserves the be called sir
User avatar #155 to #154 - captainfuckitall (07/22/2013) [-]
And do you know him personally, or his efforts, or history? He didn't live in royal times, he wasn't BORN a noble, he was knighted by the Queen for some great task or another (as most modern knights often are)
User avatar #159 to #155 - lordmoldywart (07/22/2013) [-]
No I don't know him personally, but I don't need to for me to make a comment like that.

I know why he was knighted and why people today are, but you're missing my point, NO respectable or honourable person would force others to call them by their title. So YOU shouldn't try forcing others to call him by his title, if he was a respectable or honourable person, he wouldn't want you to.
User avatar #160 to #159 - captainfuckitall (07/22/2013) [-]
But you still should. Kinda like if you're eating a cake in front of someone, it's common courtesy to offer them a piece even if they didn't buy it. I'm not trying to force anyone to call him by his title, nor is he (he's kinda dead), but you SHOULD include his title when addressing him for the sake of respect

How do you have such a hard time with this concept?
User avatar #161 to #160 - lordmoldywart (07/22/2013) [-]
I don't like the snobbery that is involved with noble titles, that's what I have a hard time with
User avatar #162 to #161 - captainfuckitall (07/22/2013) [-]
Good gods man, it's not snobbery if it's earned. Relax
User avatar #163 to #162 - lordmoldywart (07/22/2013) [-]
It's not necessarily snobbery when you're given it, but forcing people to call you it would be snobbery, like you're encouraging people to do
#25 to #3 - anon (07/21/2013) [-]
He wasn't a knight at the time.
User avatar #32 to #25 - captainfuckitall (07/21/2013) [-]
He died LONG before this was posted, however
#42 to #3 - anon (07/21/2013) [-]
And BTW, it would only be "Sir Arthur" then. Would also be a sign of respect to actually know that.
User avatar #50 to #42 - captainfuckitall (07/21/2013) [-]
Good that you caught that, but the principle is still the same.

Protip: No it wouldn't. Otherwise they would only introduce him as "Sir Arthur", rather than "Sir Arthur Conan Doyle", as they do in all of his writings. Just because you caught a spelling mistake doesn't make me any less correct
#40 to #3 - anon (07/21/2013) [-]
Yes, spelling his name wrong sure was a sign of respect.

I only somewhat know about this quote because there's a quote very similar to it when you discover the Telegraph in Civilization V
“I once sent a dozen of my friends a telegram saying ‘flee at once – all is discovered.’ They all left town immediately.”
– Mark Twain
