If it isn’t, you’ve got competition for the Pedantic Bore of the Century Prize! It’s about “mass graves” and everything. Better watch your grey-haired back!
No, wait, do you understand how creepy it sounds when a woman is recounting with perfect clarity and accuracy the forcible removal of her family from their ancestral home “near the eastern border with Russia” in the 1930s and for you to respond by arguing either about where the border is today or about the use of “Russia” as a synonynm for “Soviet Union”? “Oh, sure, this woman says her family were killed in 1832 at a small town near the Canadian border. Doesn’t she know that the Dominion of Canada was not legally constituted until 1867?” (…)
There is a huge mound of corpses in your backyard, and you want to argue about the location of the barn and whether the adjective “Russian” applies to the Soviet Union, and in the process dismiss as a “schmuck” a woman mourning her murdered family.
Look in the mirror and ask yourself whether this is really who you want to be in the year 2010.
