Dima's EE Dads: Part Dva

Apologies, Dima, but I couldn't find your OG EE dad thread.

My own father has low-grade dementia, and is hard of hearing. After a recent footie conversation with him, I thought it would be fun to revive this thread.

///

(All conversations semi-translated from the Serbian)

[Scenario: my father and I speaking about old ex-Yugo stadiums]

Me: "The last time I was as that shithouse of a Partizan stadium was for an AC/DC concert".

Father: **** Edison. And your school books.

Me: "No, no. I'm talking about the Australian rock band, AC/DC".

Father: Australian? All criminals just like Edison.

Serbs are bitterly anti-Edison I've noticed.

I wonder if it has anything to do with TESLA?

Paraphrasing a fb friend (but using my team):

"Am I religious? No, but I'm a supporter of [the Romanian NT], so I'm delusional enough already"

Almost always.

Tesla seems to somehow legitimize Serb existence . Edison is also viewed as contra to traditional Serb practice -- where everything is shared, part of tradition/culture/history...so, to monetize it feels very wrong/Western.

Me: "Tata, what about when you were a fence jumper at Poljud? What was the "atmosphere" like then?

Father: That was before Tito built that huge vagina, you idiot! The ujos tossed cars into the sea, we burned the rest.

Many people seek after what they do not possess and are thus enslaved by the very things they want to acquire...because "precondition of that subjunctive".

I'm hoping these conversations help my father. He's a strangely liberal-conservative-dictator type.

My dad is staunchly democrat but at the same time very carefree with the racial slurs.
