I regret everything. I even kind of regret that I'm posting this.
I regret what I did/said last week!
She collaborated with Vichy regime. So post-WWII, this song was her way of being chauvinist and thumbing her nose at Americans, and even moreso, the English. She was saying, "though I'm French and I did what I had to do to survive, I'm glad things turned out as they did."
Which begs the statement, well, duh, yeah, bitch, of course you are - either way the war went, you would have survived.
She was a putain
She didn't write the song, so it's not her POV. Two French guys wrote it in 1956 and brought it to her in 1960. She liked it and recorded it. Then she dedicated the song to the French Foreign Legion. which was at war with Algeria at the time.
I regret eating that whole frozen pizza last night
It's a philosophy not a lifestyle, like people who say their lives are a search for beauty.
Really? Even when you shit?
I regret my entire life up until now, including responding to the OP.
"which was at war with Algeria at the time."
Algeria is an integral part of France.
R9, haven't you heard of the Algerian War? That's how Algeria gained its independence from France.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
