This is about as close as I would
want to get to Damascus.

A humorous comment by one Opera member on one of Darko's recent posts
about being (supposedly) banned from entering a number of countries got
me to thinking. And you know what happens when I start thinking —
usually another Republic of Bullshit post.

So. What countries would I like to be banned from?

I would say Syria, for one. For a lot of reasons that I won't go into
here, Syria can just go to hell as far as I'm concerned. I'm not talking
about the people of Syria, of course; many of whom I'm sure are fine

I also think it would be cool to have my blog banned in some country or
another. I think there are a good number of countries that more or less
restrict outside internet access. But what I'm talking about here is
having my blog banned specifically.

For example, I think it would be cool to be able to put


at the top of my blog. Just to leave people wondering what the f*** that
one was all about. In truth, I have nothing against Madagascar, and I
love lemurs. But that's the first country that came into my head. So I'm
running with it.

Well, I think I'll have to give it more thought. Stay posted.
