ya, slovak, well.. certainly when it started it would have been czech, no? but thanks for the.. clarity. potato, potàto. i thought the stained glass was pretty cool...
ok. perhaps you're czech, or slovak, or personally connected somehow, i'm not, just know what people here tell me... certainly don't mean to start a whole thread and argue it all... and obviously its history is a bit complex, but...
huh. i think your analogy is really bad: your montana statement would be just plain wrong; whereas my statement, even if you get really pedantic, as you are, it still doesn't seem wrong, maybe just a bit imprecise, if you get oddly anal about it, which you are.
when i originally said "czech" company, i meant czechoslovakian, as in the state of czechoslovakia, as it was then. not czech as in czech republic, but czech in the original use of it cause that's the time period that was being referenced. your 'correction' of that just confused me and frankly i don't understand why you're splitting that hair. i do know the difference between czech and slovak, but didn't think it was necessary to be so.. pedantic. i didn't realize i was defending a dissertation on it. so. now that the original vibe of the post is totally ruined, thanks for that, moving on.
and before i'm thrown out of the schoolyard, mods, i'm done! thanks for indulging...
[i'm unclear what there was to clear up, but i'm glad it's now clear.]
yeah, that was the original point.. not a geo-political diatribe... apologies.
I suspect Slovak's being referred to as Czech's is one of the reasons we now HAVE a Czech Republic and a Slovak Republic...
they could have called it slovaczechlakia. but, yes, i think you're right. there's a lot of opinion on it over here, but mostly seems on the side of 'maybe it wasn't such a great idea to split'. at any rate, live and learn.
Where are you from? Vermont. That's in New Hampshire, right?
OK, I'll withdraw my comments, and move on.
thx steve, i repped you for that classy response.
@medved, i pm'd you but didn't seem to go through:
