|My pleasure, IR2. You know, the biggest problem with Shadows of Mindor, I think, is the insertion of the Stover's pet characters seems a quite forced. It doesn't seem quite natural to me.

Let me guess. That's what we call "gabachos" (said with due respect, I don't want to insult anyone here), right? But our expression is a bit older. Well, in fact, it's much more older than from 1995. But, hey, they are our neighbors, after all.
"Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys" is how Groundskeeper Willie referred to the French. Due to budget cut-backs, Willie had to teach the French class.
Below is as obscure a reference as I could think of. It combines many things that nerds love, and many will still require a Google search to get it, regardless of nerdity.
"When the ones who run the firehouse are the ones who start the fire
And the lawless make the laws, and every preacher is a liar
And the ones that damn the innocent, well they own the nightly news
And the front page.
An old man said to me: it's not who, but what you know
And knowledge isn't wisdom without control
Better still to be the changes that you want to see
But they come slow, I know.
And you said RISE ABOVE
Open your eyes up
And you said Rise Above
But I can't, I can't."
"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
