I didn't fully get the details of the dispute, and it seemed both sides were rather unwilling to compromise on the matter. But the end result was just that the Welsh got themselves totally fucked over. They played their cards in absolutely the wrong way and nothing they could do on-field was going to fix it.

Also, I love how at home games, Australia's been trying to create some sort of Haka response by getting some musician to lead the crowd in a Waltzing Matilda sing-along. That makes me laugh. It deserves a poster:

HAKA RESPONSE
You're doing it wrong.

Doing martial arts doesn't psych you up enough on its own, maj.?


Also, should not have had coke with dinner. Not at all tired and it's nearly bed time.

Yeah, there were a few non-independent entities who did it first. Though was the Manx one limited to property-holding women? I know some were, but I can't remember which.

Also, that's pretty fucking cool that you're of Manx descent. In about 2003 or so, I tried to teach myself some of the Manx language as it looks really fascinating, but it was hard to do it as a bit of a lone wolf, and I completely sucked at the pronunciation.

The only way to respond to the haka, I've concluded, is to either look like you don't give a damn or to pull out some equally awesome war-dance.

Pity the Aussies can't really do it though, unless they pull out an Aboriginal war dance (if such things exist? I'm sure they do).

I didn't notice that. I as a rule ignore YouTube comments. They seem to be made by the stupidest people on the planet most of the time.

Nah, the haka is much more primitive and brutal. Chinese martial arts are too pretty and flowery most of the time, and when you do a brutal, primitive performance, you just end up tired because odds are you've been doing flying kicks all around the place.

Oh, I don't doubt there's a fucking sweet Aboriginal response they could do. But considering that getting to the National Apology was like pulling teeth, and Aboriginal culture might as well not exist in the public consciousness, I don't see it happening for a while.

Another problem, of course, is the fact Aboriginal players are fairly rare on the Wallabies. The All Blacks always has its fair share of Maoris and Pacific Islanders, or people with at least some Maori blood in them.

They are. Sometimes there are interesting bits of trivia (usually by interferencers), but usually it's utter drivel, or a flame war.

I just notice stupid little things like that.

I can at least teach you the correct pronunciation of the words!

Youtube comments are usually awful, but sometimes they're so bad they're worth reading just to make you laugh.

I believe so. But I didn't know anything about Manx history until last year in which my grandpa discovered that our heritage is very Manx, rather than British as we had suspected. I may have to learn some of our Gaelic sometime, because as we're fairly small in number I think it's worth preserving the heritage!

Yeah, that's the great thing about the Haka, it's straight to the point: "You're about to die at my hands. Get ready, bitch."

The problem with the Chinese is that when it comes to fighting, they're either very subtle, or not at all.

They follow the traditions and rituals of offering opportunities to the other party to surrender, and meeting their leaders and so on and so forth, then they all line up, some guy yells "KILL!" and twenty thousand Asian guys in armour run forward screaming.

So, not much opportunity there for war dancing.

Yeah, sometimes the idiocy brings the lulz, but like Ali said, too often it's just complete drivel or a flame war. Nobody needs to read a "ur gay" "ur a n00b" "f&ck off" argument.

I also don't get a lot of the very rude and insulting comments. I have a hard time believing that many people watch shit they know they won't like and/or go around insulting videos because they have nothing better to do.

Ahh, cool. Yeah, I started learning the Manx language when I read about how it had almost died and efforts were being made to revive it. It seems really awesome. I also tried Cornish for the same reason - plus I have a small bit of Cornish heritage somewhere along the way.

The Maori sure as hell didn't fart-arse around with traditional ritual niceties like that. As evidenced by the fact some Taranaki Maori wiped out the Moriori tribe on the Chatman Islands so thoroughly that no full-blooded Moriori are left ...
