Helsinki Summit

Jul 15, 2018 - 1:49 PM - by Clodhopper
Too important not to have a thread of its own.

Now my understanding is that not only are 12 Russians indicted but US intelligence services are currently warning that the Russians intend to interfere in the mid terms.

If Trump goes in and complains seriously about these matters and the Novichok use and the Crimea and Ukraine I'll be reassured. If he disappears off and has a buddy chat he's at best a fool and at worst a traitor.

The only question in my mind... [Read More]

World Cup 2018 Russia

Jul 14, 2018 - 6:24 AM - by Clodhopper
I had a visit from my somewhat Russian friend. He told me two little stories relating to the world cup that might be of amusement:

1) The bids for this world cup went in 5 years ago. Putin started building the stadia 6 years ago...(they needed new stadia - the Russian football federation did not have ones that were up to standard and no way would Putin have spent the money unless he KNEW they would be needed)

2) Why has this World Cup been so lacking in trouble?... [Read More]

Riots in N Ireland

Jul 14, 2018 - 4:47 AM - by Clodhopper
I hope this is an unnecessary thread that slides swiftly down the list and off the actives.

Unfortunately there has been a week of youths throwing petrol bombs at night in Republican areas. It is undoubtedly being driven by extremists and even someone like Gerry Adams has been targeted (he now counts as a moderate/traitor in the extremists' eyes).

The extremists are being attacked by Sinn Fein for using children as soldiers and hopefully the community can... [Read More]

Jul 05, 2018 - 3:46 PM - by Clodhopper
This is not a joke, this is real, as far as I'm aware:

Now, it still has to be passed to fly by the Met Police and the local flying control, neither of which are noted for their sense of humour so there's a good chance that it won't get more than a few feet off the ground.

It's already been described as the... [Read More]

2 new Novichok poisonings

Jul 05, 2018 - 3:20 PM - by Clodhopper
Currently the working hypothesis is that it is connected to the attack on the Skripals - left over product dumped perhaps since Novichok is not common - but they have an open mind. That's according to the Chief Constable of Wiltshire.

I don't think this was a deliberate attack by the Russians. But I hope it has opened up new avenues of enquiries for the Police - Amesbury is near Salisbury but had not previously been connected with the Skripal attack that I'm aware of. Also, the... [Read More]

Political Satire: The Old Man of the Mountain (30)

Jul 03, 2018 - 4:02 AM - by reedak
Narrator: The priest was riding a white horse like the wind towards the old man's mountain fortress which was a magnificent castle built on top of a high rock reaching 2000 m above sea level.

On the way, he found an old man sitting on a high wall of a large building.

Priest: Hi, Old Man of the Mountain!

Old man: No, I am not the Old Man of the Mountain. I am his twin brother.

Priest: Don't pull my leg. You really resemble the Old Man... [Read More]

Political Satire: The Old Man of the Mountain (16)

Jul 03, 2018 - 3:49 AM - by reedak
Narrator: After walking many miles along a coastal area, the priest found a middle-aged man lying on a sandy beach. He seemed to be unconscious and his clothes were heavily clogged with water. The priest squatted down and patted him gently on the shoulder. After a while, the man slowly opened his eyes.

Priest: Dude, why are you lying here?

Middle-aged man: I have been drifting in the sea, I suppose, for several days.

Priest: Please elaborate on how... [Read More]

Political Satire: The Old Man of the Mountain (22)

Jul 03, 2018 - 3:41 AM - by reedak
Narrator: After travelling many miles in the daytime and sleeping on a tree at night, the priest arrived at a small town of a tiny landlocked principality in the evening. Feeling hungry, he went into a restaurant for dinner. Some distance away from his table, two men, one in his forties and the other seventies, were drinking heavily. Halfway in their drinking bout, the older man staggered onto a stage with a bottle in his left hand, took a drink and spoke to the diners.

New variant of musical chairs called "You’re fired"

Jul 03, 2018 - 3:28 AM - by reedak
A police officer was sent to a noisy party scene to give the homeowner a “first warning" after receiving a complaint from a grumpy neighbour. When he arrived at the scene, he found more than a dozen masked men being carried away to be dumped unceremoniously outside the house. The masks looked familiar to him as they were replicas of faces he had seen in various media outlets.

One of the participants of the party explained in response to his query: "Someone suggested... [Read More]

Political Satire: The Old Man of the Mountain (10)

Jun 27, 2018 - 2:22 AM - by reedak
Narrator: When the priest almost reached the peak, he found a half-naked old man, dressed only in a loin cloth, meditating beside a large box at the entrance of a cave. With a long white beard and stringy locks of hair that resembled dreadlocks, the old man looked like a sadhu, ascetic or holy man.

What caught the priest’s attention was not the ascetic but the box. He walked towards the cave for a closer look at the box. He found that the box, including the cover, was made of... [Read More]

Narrator: After a while, the priest arrived at a tribal village near a beach. He found a large crowd hurling mirrors against a huge rock. The priest asked one of the onlookers about the commotion.

Priest: Hey, what's going on here?

Politics and religion - two subjects to avoid in conversation

Jun 26, 2018 - 7:38 AM - by G#Gill

I was told some long time ago that one should avoid at all costs, the subjects of politics and religion on an open forum. To discuss such subjects just encourages fall outs and arguments, which can develop into out and out feuds !

I'm just an ordinary person who uses the internet to gain information about all sorts of things and to patronise certain forums to have conversations with people who may be of like mind. This can sometimes encourage a 'cyber friendship' which can... [Read More]

Political Satire: The Old Man of the Mountain (17)

Narrator: After many days of travelling, the priest arrived at an open space in a tribal region. There he found a huge crowd gathering around a raised platform, 24 feet by 24 feet and 4 feet high, without railings.

He spotted among the spectators an old friend who told him the tribal chief's eldest son would be defending his championship title in 10 consecutive years. The 10th annual mixed martial arts "lei tai" championship was a full-contact tournament with no... [Read More]
