    Default Will Nathan make an ink for Ukraine?

    Three weeks into the invasion, and I've yet to hear of the inarguably most politically outspoken member of the FP community producing a pro-Ukraine/anti-Putin ink. Should there be a pool to guess when he releases one? I'd support it.

    M: I came here for a good argument.
    A: No you didn't; no, you came here for an argument.
    M: An argument isn't just contradiction.
    A: It can be.
    M: No it can't. An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.
    A: No it isn't.
    M: Yes it is! It's not just contradiction.
    A: Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.
    M: Yes, but that's not just saying 'No it isn't.'
    A: Yes it is!
    M: No it isn't!

    He's a Libertarian. He likely doesn't give a rat’s ass. If he does, though, and the profits go to Ukraine instead of Russia, I'll buy a bottle or two.

    In all seriousness, every green -- composed of equal portions of blue and yellow -- is Ukraine's colours.

    I don't know. Here in Massachusetts, most St. Valentines Day revelers were more interested in the quantity of green beer, not in the fact that green beer can turn their pee into the Ukrainian colors.

    He may have a nuanced opinion, in which case he's probably wise enough to keep it to himself.

    I have a non-nuanced opinion and I lack the wisdom of reticence. No wonder I just spent a week arguing with relatives.

    He might do something from the family of General of the Armies/ Rome is Burning/ House divided family. A yellow that washes into blue. Or a blue that fade into yellow. Ironic that he celebrated Russian series, where he celebrated Russian intelligentsia...

    it seems to me that they are definitely not up to it now ...... when you have such problems, you will not even think about it, but the idea is good, I would also support and buy a couple of bottles

    Definitely he should make two...

    I'm not sure if this is new one, but Noodler's but Censor's Red seems like one in the right direction:

    That guy is such an asshole. It's nauseating.

    Jon, I believe this and the 1984 were limited series and now are part of the official line up. I doubt if they have anything to do with Ukraine per se, but mostly against institutionalized communism...

    Oh, I get that. There was a very, very lengthy discussion of this ink on another pen discussion place a couple of weeks ago. My opinion of NT can't sink much further and I needn't belabor the point and just annoy everyone!
