Foe's girlfriend is always looking at this site. Basically it's a shopping mall here in Ontario, and there is a peregrine falcon nest on a ledge of the mall wall.

They have set up a webcam and transmit the birds' lives every few seconds. Very interesting! Mommy and daddy falcons keep bringing pigeons to the babies. 3 female and 1 male chick.

Check it out!

Quite big rockets? They want to shoot a man to space (100 km up iirc) because they were bored after building their own U-Boot last year. They start a dummy in a few days. They built a swimming ponton start base and tow it to international waters - with their own U-Boot. I have no idea what permissions they need, but obviously they managed to get them.

Remember the North Korean national football team from the recent world cup ?


Well, a lot of things have happened, the trainer is in a labor camp now, the players had to explain their failure to the public by blaming everything on their trainer with the help of pre-written statements in a two hour long "grand debate".

Afterwards , things became quiet around the mysterious eleven koreans about which little is known as they were not allowed to talk to journalists during their world cup participation in South Africa .... until now !

Remember him ? The patriotic player who was moved to tears by the North Korean national anthem ?

This is Chong Tese who now plays for the german second national league team VFL Bochum. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif


Comerade Chong is one of the most exotic purchases ever made by a german football club but he is also a very good football player and made his first two goals right away in his very first match.

He is a red one, he adores the dear leader as being the great and just genius of the people, loves the motherland of his father North Korea and maybe he even is a mole bent on introducing communist ideology and doctrine to german football, but he is also a mean, lean disciplined football machine ....and thats good enough for us. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Comerade Chong, who was born in Japan to a South Korean mother , learned german in just a few weeks thus integrating himself into his new team in no time.

Asked by journalists how he did this, the thoroughly fit and humourus player revealed his secret motto to them : "Learning instead of sleeping" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Hi Celeon - just being curious - would you mind to prove the 'trainer is in labour camp' statement?

Would there have been a press conference in Germany if 'The Mannschaft' would have failed to win in the first round? Would they have had to explain what happened and why? Would we have a discussion about sacking Loew and Bierhoff?

As far as I know the FIFA was satisfied by some statement of North Korea telling the trainer and the team are doing fine and are in preparation for the Asian Games.

As a columnist for Choson Sinbo and golf partner of the dear leader, Celeon took over the task to personally answer all of Sepp Blatter's question in a single comprehensive letter as Mr Kim Jong Hun was not available for a telephone conversation at the moment, or next week .... or ever. I made that clear in my letter and Mr. Blatter seems to have no more questions. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Of course we would have a press conference here if die Mannschaft would fail similarily miserable. In the DPRK , there wasnt one as the dear leader did not asked for one being made. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Instead the more efficient grand debates are usually being held in which the supreme people's assembly takes over the task of questioning the players on behalf of the people and the press so that they can make the respective conclusions and decide what was done wrong.

Afterwards the people's assembly informes the press about its findings and they inform the people. So yes, its kind of a press conference somehow but not really.

I agree that we would talk about sacking Löw but luckily Mr. Hun is in no danger of recieving a similar unfair treatment.

He is the national trainer and just because he makes some mistakes he does not loose his job over that like in the capitalistic world where his value to the country would be solely measured by his success in relation to the money spent on him.

Instead he recieves advice and help to make him understand that he did something wrong and what it was, so that he can change and do it better next time. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Thats exactly the same method we utilized in the GDR although, in a slightly less thorough form http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Ah I see - we don't know anything and compare to things we know. Assuming there must have been some kind of punishment for the trainer - it's a bad communist system at least.

By the way - did someone follow the Russian Cheonan sinking investigations? Well - they didn't release a public statement (why?), but funnily the UN decided not to harm North Korea for the disaster after checking these papers.

How comes? What happened to the international neutral investigation team's overwhelming evidence for a North Korean attack?
Did they omit a possibility to rubbish the commies?

Oh - no! - they did it already and every western patriot remembers that sly and wicked North Korean crime. Who cares for later UN statements.

Here's an interesting thing... Why Ontario, Canada, seems to be in constant debt.

"Premier of Ontario is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out, attacks and kills a dog.

* #1. The Premier starts to intervene, reflects upon the movie "Bambi" and then realizes he should stop; the coyote is only doing what is natural.
* #2. He calls animal control. Animal control captures coyote and spends $200 testing it for diseases and $500 to relocate it.
* #3. He calls veterinarian. Vet collects dead dog and spends $200 testing it for diseases.
* #4. Premier goes to hospital and spends $3,500 getting checked for diseases from the coyote and on getting bite wound bandaged.
* #5. Running trail gets shut down for 6 months while wildlife services conduct a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is clear of dangerous animals.
* #6. Premier spends $50,000 of Provincial funds implementing a "coyote awareness" program for residents of the area.
* #7. Ontario legislature spends $2 million investigating how to better handle rabies and how to possibly eradicate the disease.
* #8. Premier's security agent is fired for not stopping the attack and for letting the Premier intervene.
* #9. Cost: $75,000 to train new security agent.
* #10. PETA protests the coyote relocation and files suit against the Province.

Premier of Alberta is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks dog.

* #1. Premier shoots coyote and keeps jogging. Premier has spent $0.50 on a bullet.
* #2. Buzzards eat dead coyote.

Any wonder why Ontario is broke??? "

Eight warheads ! Or better said : Concrete dummies.

So it must have been at least three Minuteman III missiles or a single submarine launched Trident-II on that test.

At the moment they all carry just one single warhead as per disarmament agreement with Russia.

Actually the entire Marshall Islands including the Kwajalein Atoll once belonged to us.

They were part of the colony German New Guinea since 1886 until Kwajalein was captured by the japanese in 1914.

Today Roi Namur is home to the Ronald Reagan Ballistic Missile Defence Test Site and around 100 people working there.

Not that we would want the Marshall Islands back.

Living there is considered unhealthy because of lots of radioactive contamination in the soil of most atolls from the big hydrogen bomb tests of the 1950's.

The real big ones

Foe has an assignment due soon. Needs to rant. When girlfriend asked how was it going, I replied, "my dislike of the prof is a function of time passed squared, and willingness to continue is a square root of passed time".

As a background, I disagree with a LOT of what Al Gore says in his Inconvenient Truth. Here's an assignment that is the very definition of thinking for ourselves.
Tell me if this is not forcing me to think like a prof or else...


"Choose two pieces of scientific evidence that Al Gore presented in the documentary to support his thesis. For each piece of evidence, (1) discuss its nature and its relevance in the context of the documentary film and (2) examine whether or not scientific studies actually support the two pieces of scientific evidence that you chose. This examination should be carried out using scholarly sources, such as, scientific journals, text books, or articles from respectable scientific organizations (e.g., NOAA). <span class="ev_code_RED"> Finally, (3) critically review existing criticisms and opinions that say that anthropogenic global warming is scientifically unproven.</span>"

Say, what???

Has anyone read "Ringworld"? Aside of me thinking that Halo games stole the theory of a ringworld from there, there's another quote that I thought of, in relation to this laser.

A guy remembers a chapter from an army training manual.

"Your laser weapon will be ineffective when striking the surface of the same color as the beam"

"Never shoot at reflecting armor!!!"

Indeed. What if the terrorists paint their boats in a shiny silver color? Obviously, it will not reflect back to the ship, but wouldn't it reflect much of the energy away, and US would have wasted many millions?

Sort of like an old joke.

USA told Russia that they would launch space weapons into orbit that can strike anywhere in Russia.
The Russians replied, if you do that, we will send two truckloads of nails into orbit, and all of your billion dollar weapons will turn into sieves http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
