    People who hang flags in the house.

    What do you think of people who have flags on the wall? Does it matter which flag it is? What if the room is themed around the country? What if they have multiple flags?

    I just hung up a flag in my new living room and its the most American room I've ever seen.

    They're meant to evoke a feeling of superiority, aren't they? I don't see any reason why a person of intellect would tolerate one in his house. I suppose they're the poor man's substitute for art.

    I have no idea but the poor thing fits. I had nothing to put on that wall and had a big flag so figured why not.

    Person of intellect
    You have not seen many of my posts have you?

    At some point my roommate found the old tattered Jolly Roger from my preteen years. I explained it away saying that I still had it because one never knew when they would need to raise the flag and should always be prepared for that possibility. He liked that enough that when I was out of the house he hung it over the kitchen table. It takes up like a third of the wall.


    It might just be the tackiest thing in my whole house.
    Oh fuck it, Its the 90's.

    I have a ton of art on my walls and a Washington DC flag too because I am from that area but live far away now.

    And you wish to remind yourself that Washington DC is the best state? A blank wall would be a more profound statement and it would be more aesthetically pleasing.

    Tangential: don't ever call Washington DC a state.

    First of all DC is not a state. Second of all, no. Its a reminder of home.

    How would a blank wall be a more profound statement? Are you saying this as an objective truth, or a subjective opinion? Because I mean, considering that you live in my house, I do value your opinion and all.
