  1. You could bounce billiard balls off of that comb-over.
  2. Of course it isn't. What is difficult is to change (not buy) a philosophy, a mindset, an attitude..... a whole different way of "being". Good luck with that one.
  3. The other inmates will be Spanish, so they will not give a ****: 10 Animal Cruelty Traditions in Spain - Global Animal Welfare
  4. Hitting a 1.2 kg object while travelling at 462kmh/287mph (max climb speed of Airbus A320) is not "bumping into it". (Less than 1mm aluminium alloy skin thickness on many airliners in service)
  5. See the megalomania actually growing rather than being assuaged: Dakota Pipeline: And now:
  6. Never trust a man whose signature is bigger than his hands.
  7. Never mind the houses, they will still be there when the waters drop. What's it doing to the crops? That's what peoples lives depend upon.
  8. www.abc.net.au/news/2017-10-11/cronulla-real...port-jackson-shark... 'The Port Jackson shark is a bottom-dweller with a distinctive blunt-shaped head and harness-like markings. It can grow up to 1.65 metres long and is considered harmless to people.' "I wasn't really scared but I wouldn't have done it with a great white [shark]. "Surfing over the years, you know you see them all the time. They're probably underneath you all the time."
  9. ‘Torpedo’ turns out to be harmless float

    A "Paravane". Their initial comments indicated that they probably thought they had got themselves a Howell or Whitehead torpedo from the late 19th/early 20th century: Whitehead Mk1 I suppose the paravane had filled with sand and water, giving the impression of the solidity of a torpedo.
  10. No, this is Formula 1 air racing with a "grid" of aircraft (competing simultaneously) not the timed individual aerobatics/slalom that Red Bull sponsors. http://airrace1.com/chang-confirmed-as-presenting-partner-of-air-race-1-world-cup/
  11. Unregistered drones BANNED in Thailand

    This is why they need to be regulated......as rigorously as piloted, full size aircraft: Plane in UK's first double-drone near-miss case - BBC News UK reports 70 drone near-misses at Heathrow in 2016 - Engadget Near misses between drones and airplanes on the rise in US, says FAA As always, too many of the "wrong sort" have got hold of them, just as too many of the wrong sort have got hold of guns........and just as too many of the wrong sort get to travel. .
  12. Chinese tanks arrive ahead of schedule

    Are you sure they were Chinese tanks?: "The Stingray suffered its own complications. After roughly five years of service, around half of the Stingrays had turret and hull armor cracks. These issues led to accusations of the military purchasing "untested prototypes" and the corruption that allowed such a trade. Cadillac Gage sent a team to Thailand to investigate. The results were unexpected. The reason for the cracks was that the army had been running illegal "races" with the vehicles with each crew competing for the highest jump they could achieve. The highest jump was discovered to be over two meters! The investigators directly linked the cracks to this "performance", but in the end Cadillac Gage offered to repair all the vehicles for free, a deal which the Thai military gleefully accepted." Thailand bought some Chinese tanks, but not because they thought they were any good: "Thailand did buy other armored vehicles as well, most notably approximately 100 Chinese Type 69 MBTs. However, they were not bought for their qualities (the tank was obsolete by 1987), but for political reasons - in exchange for a cessation of Chinese support for Thai Maoist rebels. The price agreed for the Chinese tanks was very low, but, unfortunately, so was their quality and not a single Chinese vehicle was in running condition by 1997, making the Thai press question any further arms deals with China." https://aw.my.com/us/news/general/temple-guardian
  13. There is no "Thailands Car Industry". There is a Japanese Car industry, which locates some of its factories in Thailand With what will the UK pay for its imports? The redundancy payments of the workers from the car factories that will disappear from the UK upon "Brexit"? The unemployment benefit from the Bombardier employees who are set to lose their jobs as a result of the US trade penalties being imposed on their parent Canadian company? The paltry, part-time wages from "Macjobs"? The peanuts earned by the once vanished (but now ever-growing) army of those "in service" (cleaners, child minders and arse-wiping "carers")? Have a look at where the money came from in those "hundreds of years before the EU" and ask yourself "what is there that can replicate Britains power, the Imperial trade dominance and the scientific/industrial lead that enabled that concentration of wealth?". It's all gone, or been equalled or surpassed by the new world leaders. It was "a passing thing". And now the UK has a population of 66 million. But you people just don't get it do you? You and the Eton boys, still fantasising about the lost glory of the ******* "Empire".
  14. King Canute and the waves - Wikipedia "In the story, Canute demonstrates to his flattering courtiers that he has no control over the elements (the incoming tide), explaining that secular power is vain compared to the supreme power of God. The episode is frequently alluded to in contexts where the futility of "trying to stop the tide" of an inexorable event is pointed out, but usually misrepresenting Canute as believing he had supernatural powers, when Huntingdon's story in fact relates the opposite."
