    I might add that Assange was, one of the founders, and the one, who jumped up in front of the cameras at every opportunity, he is not the founder, just the attention whore who takes credit for everything and then some. There are more founders on this list - Sarah Harrison, Kristinn Hrafnsson, Joseph Farrell , Ingi Ragnar Ingason , Gavin MacFadyen.

    and though this following pic, isn't video, it is also a Pure Schaudenfreude Moment - what happens, when you buy a McLaren and learn about steep inclines, in China.

    That joke would work better if it said 1023 Megabytes since 1 Gigabyte is 1024 Megabytes

    Why don't you just take it to MBK? I'm a technical person myself, but you can spend endless wasted hours on this type of thing. Pay a small fee and let those guys handle it. Saves you a headache, also it will probably be the price of one or two pints at the Morning Star; and you get a nice feeling of helping the economy. A true win win situation. P.S.: My father worked on the team that developed the mobile at Motorola. He was a pioneering electrical engineer, and I still mind of him ranting about this conference where the marketeers where describing them as credit cards with antennas. I buy the cheap 'dumb' phones because the battery lasts at least a week. We're back pacing without even knowing it.

    Perhaps that is the case. But millions of children seem to manage it. Talking Thai or Isaan or Khmer is not that difficult. All these languages are just different ways of expressing the same things. They aren't really that much different from us (Western culture), it's just they found their own way. I found that fascinating, and in the interest it made me really listen to them. If you really want to speak a foreign language, then learn to listen first, and be fascinated by their culture. If not, well your welcome to your bubble.

    What a Stupid Woman Get off has so many meanings such as Have a Holiday, Avoid Punishment, Go to Sleep etc as well as could be about sex. Also when Get Off is used to describe Sex it is between 2 consenting adults and nothing to do with abusing children Talk about adding 2+2 and coming to 1,000,000,000,000

    New Zealand is by definition a land of immigrants other than the aboriginal peoples. Just depends on when you came. The shooter was part of the community. I recall after 9/11 I felt as American as I ever did. In that tragedy, I recall vividly while driving in LA the next day, it was the most polite Los Angelenos were ever to each other. You felt a strong bond to everyone. For a brief time, black, white, latino, Jew, Christian, atheist, men, women, we were all one. The sad part is it took a tragedy to make us see that. Eventually the shock of it wore off and we went back to our corners and came out fighting. But for a brief time, there was unity. My parents said they experienced with the JFK assassination, the landing on the moon as well. New Zealand is experiencing that now. This type of thing, in the last place one would expect it bonds you like no other. I'm guessing no one is a stranger to another there now because everyone has the same point of reference of sadness and shock. It bonds and binds you. If you have children you think of the world they may have to live in. After 9/11 I felt sorry for my nephews if this was going to be their 'normal'. I have no doubt whatsoever, New Zealand will emerge better, stronger and more determined not to have something like this happen. As I said, the coolest people, bar none, I've come across. Quick story. I was sitting on a plane as we were boarding and a guy came over to my seat and started rubbing my shoulder. He was smiling. Of course I am thinking what the fuck is going on. Some gay dude making a public move on me. He looks over several seats up and this girl is smiling and giggling They were both in their early 20s. I was wearing a t shirt that said "rub me for good look' with a clover leaf over it. He said 'Just doing what the shirt said and my girlfriend is scared of flying' and I just laughed and laughed. They were from Auckland. That is one of many cool experiences I've had. We had a great time chatting on that flight and like almost all the other Kiwis I've had the pleasure of meeting face to face, it ended with an open invitation to visit anytime if I found myself in their part of NZ. There are other stories over the years with different ones and Coss epitomizes that same experience. Great heart and a fairness that comes across online naturally.

    I had to rewatch the original Papillon (1973) A man befriends a fellow criminal as the two of them begin serving their sentence on a dreadful prison island, which inspires the man to plot his escape. Stars:Steve McQueen, Dustin Hoffman, Victor Jory Classic movie. Steve McQueen nails it! Dustin Hoffman is a great supporting actor!! **** 1/2

    I had dinner with some people who hail from middle eastern parts yesterday, and they were as shocked as the rest of us are. These folk are such kind people, that they volunteer at the local community centre, to help in any way that they can. The father is taking weekly bible classes, because his intellectual curiosity is piqued and he wants to learn about Christianity so that he understands it better. They describe themselves as modern Muslims, their daughter is a doctor and a friend.

    Remembering in this instance, that the Haka is a sign of respect, and solidarity, for the victims, and their families.

    Project Blue Book The story of the real-life, U.S. Air Force-sponsored investigations into UFO-related phenomena from 1947-70. Stars: Aidan Gillen, Michael Malarkey, Laura Mennell Looks to be a gripping thriller. How can it not be with Littlefinger in the cast. ****
