    I only "got it" in the sense that I was able to enjoy and appreciate it. Saying it went over someone's head doesn't necessarily imply a lack of intelligence. It mostly implies a lack of ability to...

    The US won't send a single troop into Syria, I can guarantee you that. The UK and France may differ, but nobody here is going to Syria, that's a fact. At most, there'll be a few missile strikes and...
