  1. My Face Book page has suddenly decided it should appear in Japanese. And no, I wasn't looking at Japanese porn either (this time). There must be a way to set the language, but since everything is in Japanese, I can't read the damned thing to find it!

     

    Effing samurais. :(

    This is not only a facebook problem. When I*m in Thailand I'm often redirected to pages in Thai which I don't understand. This aparently is due to the fact that th ip adress shows where you are. How you could be resirected to a Japanese I don't understand.


  2. some people need a real hobby !

     

    Absolutely and in Finland they could choose the fine sport of hurling rubber boots. This is a big sport in Finland and they have the world record which is 291,16 m. The record is the total length by a team of six and was noted in 2014.

    Aparently this is a rather dangerous sport where people have broken their necks.

  3. Keith Eemerson, 71. BBC saying looks like suicide.

     

    Welcome to the show that never ends.

     

    "Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends."

    The qoute is from "Brain salad surgery" one of my favourites, Another favourite is "Pictures at an exhibition". Modest wrote the music and ELP does a great version. I have it both on video and vinyl.


  4. The worlds expanding poulation, will have to look for alternative forms of protein, and this will come from the limitless supply of insects. I myself have never tried and would never want too, but protein from insects will be the food in generations to come ...

     

    Maybe the real problem is the "The worlds expanding poulation", the worlds resources aren't limitless, also including insects. When I was young many people saw the fish in the see as a limitless resource. Today we know that this was wrong.

    Perhaps one should start looking at the very powerful forces that oppose family planning and the impact on the environment by their agenda.


  5. Swedish author Henning Mankell dies at the age of 67. He wrote mainly crime stories and his books were translated to 40 different languages, among them were German and English. TV series about his best known character , the small town police chief Kurt Wallander, were made several times. One of them was Brittish.


  6. Luckily Syria's population only stands at 17 million and I feel that even if all 17 mill would come to Europe we would be able to absorb all of them.

     

    I don't think so..

     

    It might be possible if they were evenly distributed over Europe in enirety. As of now Germany and Sweden take the major part of te load. Germany takes musch more than Sweden but is also nearly ten times bigger(populationwise).


  7. Currently, over half the Airbus fleet in service worldwide has parts produced by Chinese companies with whom Airbus already enjoys strong relations.

     

    That's how the international aircraft manufacturers work. The Swedish manufaturer SAAB makes parts for both Boeing and Airbus. I'm sure that the same goes for Spanish Casa and many other smaller aircraft companies.
