PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

5. "RE: Historical Mistake"
Mr.Fleas watched for the first time last night. He asked if I was getting online after Survivor and I explained I had a new vice, MMH and needed to watch that first. I explained the premise and he said he'd give it a whirl. After the previews and the first segment, he just looked at me, laughed and said "Damn, I love America!". "This is stupid, inane, ridiculous, wierd and just plain dumb...I love it!" The trial came up and after the first hanging he again looked at me and said..."That's it? That's the hanging? Pfft...not interested anymore."

I think it was the "drama" that Fiona tried to put into it and failed at doing. Also, while it was cool the way they did it, there really wasn't any "fear" that would be involved, other than losing privileges. They knew they weren't going to be hurt so the "hanging" was kind of lame, IMO.

As far as the historical significance, I'd have rather Fiona chose something other than Salem. The Salem witch trials were towards the end of the burning times. Men (though only about 25% were men), women and children were executed starting as early as the 12th century all over Eurpoe. There were relatively few executions or accusations for that matter here in the colonies. Besides, the people hung in Salem were most likely NOT witches anyway. Give a Puritan a cow that dies and someone, somewhere is gonna cry witch!
(and actually Gaelraven, Fiona was correct, 19 were hung. 1 was pressed to death, quite a few more died in prison. Source: List of names), as well as from the link you used in your post #2 Salem Witch Trials. Not that I believe anything that Fiona says cuz frankly she's about as intuitive as a rock, but gotta give the research team credit for at least giving her the right information.

Also, what the heck is up with Ta'Shai NOT asking people about the mindset before just jumping to conclusions. Jamie is helping clean the bathroom because she thought Ta'Shai looked tired and needed rest so didn't want to disturb her. So, as opposed to just asking Jamie why she didn't join her in the bedroom, Ta'Shai just "assumes" it's because Jamie doesn't want to get to know her and gives her a necklace. Sorry but that didn't make me feel good about Ta'Shai. Especially in light of her not talking to Noel about stuff either. I gave her Noel, but the Jamie thing, that showed that she's more willing to listen to her own counsel than give people a chance to explain. Not too enlightened in my book.


--won't even mention Fiona and the flower/note fiasco
