And I am sad to say a lot of people misunderstand the meaning of this quote. No one realizes how true it is, and how powerful these words are. Sad really. :/

anybody who's seen the Spiderman movie (like me Very Happy) or read the comics know this one well mereel

and admins (or future admins) should take this one well >Smile in mind Very Happy

"Isaac unleashes Mold!
Doom dragon, stop hitting yourself!" -golden sun: the lost age

The game, like any rpg will explain everything that happens in battle.

When you unleash the Djinni mold, he causes the enemy to hit themself. This is hilarious when used on the final boss. Very Happy

"Innkeeper: What? You want to sleep at my place?
Isaac: Yes.
Innkeeper: You got to be kidding me. Go sleep in your own home!!"

Another good bit of Dialog from golden sun.

Mereel we just left that quote for you to say. xD But it's not that we don't understand it, I certainly agree with all I'm reading nowadays with corrupt leaders in Classical Europe and so on.

The Classical Era include around 1750-1820, which actually made my earlier statement a bit inaccurate.

ok Smile
yes we call that period "classic" as well. but its no historical term, only an art-epochal term. but we have a very close view on it, because it is the msot important age of arts in german culture.
and we use it as a german term only.
because the classic age of literature is called weimar classic. because the only classic writers are goethe, schiller, herder, wieland and they all lived in or near weimar.
the classical age of music is called wien classic, because wien was the center of music in that age, and again its a german foucessed term, because the musicians are mostly german, or at least german speaking, or german self-estimating: haydn, mozart and beethoven.
maybe the wiener classic has a european character, but its german focussed, and the literature is even more.

rest europe is different. and isnt called classic. a political and philosphical oriented age is called enlightenment, which itself lasts until the french revolution, but its direct heritage is obvious until 1848/49. but enlightenment is a far bigger period then (starting early as well)
another term, fitting for whole europe and the time you said is classicism (so: calassicistic and not classical but my dictionary says it should be neo-classical, but we never say neo classical, to describe the age of classicism)
its a term describing the rediscovery of ancient times. just like renaissance did as well. though classicism is a quite architecture-focussed term, it suits what you said most.

european classical ages was confusing me for another several reasons as well, besides that the age you mean is quite german focused to me.
there are 100 classical ages xD and they are all more european. for example the acnient times (greece and rome) are called classical age. but to not get confused we call it mostly antiquity
and every other age has a classic part. even literature of the medieval is called classic.

well... i am babbling...^^

good... actually that post was just for myself ^^ i miss actually TALKING about history. at university you only 1. listen or 2. write or 3. hold a speech. but there is no free talking... discussing about something...
there are only few possibilities to discuss... but its only 1 curse per semester... so only 1 theme... its just not enough xD
