Like a Dacian  

Thrown (Ţâpat) in , , ,

As I’ve been getting closer to a long-planned trip to Europe, I had to face the prospect of more hostility and less-than-enlightened assumptions related to my ancestry. I am quite tired of going through that and have been preparing to start answering the question “where are you from” with “Dacia” – and will be doing so starting tomorrow. With this article, I will answer the follow-up “isn’t Dacia a car?” or “what is that?” or “where is that?” with “look it up!”

LikeADacianI have been explaining many of these things for a rather long time and unfortunately, I no longer have the ability to do so pro bono. But I would still like to help those in need on the road to cognition.

These facts about me may help you in deciding how I can best help you. I am / was / have:

Perhaps the best reason to hire me to help you sort out various misunderstandings is my unparalleled ability to provide a balanced opinion on any issue or argue persuasively, without neglecting logical consistency or the importance of emotion, for either side of an argument.

To quote Sheryl Crow:

What I can do for you
There's no one else
On God's green earth can do
What I can do for you
There's no one else
On God's green earth can do

Just ask anybody
They'll tell you that it's true
There's no one else on earth
Can do the things that I can do for you

You're never gonna make it
All by yourself
You're gonna need a friend
You're gonna need my help

Obviously, being your friend is not part of the deal and neither are some other things suggested in the song, but I can definitely help you.

We can spend some time discussing your chosen topic on Twitter. You may find me at @zamoca.

Tumblr 1 reply

I could answer your question on Tumblr – find me at Tumblr allows for longer replies than Twitter (replies may actually be as long as one wants them to be) but general practice on this platform is to keep text short and visually rich.

Debating implies following some formal rules. Luckily, a number of websites have made this easier (,,,, I used to offer this and to judge debates on this blog but I am no longer in a position to do so at no cost.
