You say that as if I said "of course no Americans have ever left the country or seen a castle"... sorry if it came across that way, I simply meant that there aren't any castles in America so IF anyone who lives there has never been out of the country (which is perfectly believable, I've never been out of Europe), they wouldn't have seen a castle. Not making generalisations at all. My point was mainly that even if someone's never seen a castle they probably still know all about them.
Oh lord. I'm sorry.. I seem to be having this problem lately: not coming across very well in text. Apparently I am extremely terrible at conveying emotion, or am a bad 'writer.' Or perhaps I just don't emote hard enough? Either way.. I was being pretend-mad the entire post so that I could say 'castle' a bunch. I know you weren't implying anything.
Oh, *feels silly*... Sarcasm/joking is hard to convey in text isn't it...
It tells a tale. Where I am born you cannot travel along a major river without having a small castle in sight every 10 km. It looks like the battered lands
spilled out warlords clan leaderscreated protective landed gentry. If there's a hill you could defend against a small army there has to be built a castle on top. No, the common commoner wasn't always satisfied with this development. Democracies weren't popular back then.
Since democracies aren't popular anymore today, too, I wonder wether it will rain castles (or scythes, for that matter) soon. Maybe that'll turn into a political figure of speech.
Yes, but in the modern (highly heretical) world the castles are built on the internet. The web-services getting more and heavier fortifications, protecting the precious data stored within (not to forget colourful banners)...
 Ooooh! Pagepope! I want pictures of castles and fortifications. Beautiful, impressive, intimidating, mystical...
