    I'm not annoyed with the term or with El Kanone for complaining about it. I'm annoyed that I'm so out of touch with modern life. I'm pretty sure I don't own any products with a colorway.

    Picking sides in the war between Shiites and Sunnis is a tremendously bad idea. Better to stick with something simply like Israelis vs Palestinians or RC's vs Protestants in Ireland.
