  1. *groan* This world really sinks to lower and lower depths. Only Jehovah can save us.
  2. I might go the Kevin Bacon, with chicken salt! (Chicken salt is sort of the same flavour as your packet chips/crisps that are chicken flavoured).
  3. GOOD NEWS!!!! http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-06-29/cadburys-tasmanian-factory-returns-to-normal-after-cyber-attack/8663234 Full chocolate production could be restored at Hobart's Cadbury factory by Friday afternoon, following a cyber attack which halted production on Tuesday night.
  4. "I'm innocent of these charges". Transcript of his short media conference: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-06-29/george-pell-media-conference/8663432 Cardinal Pell has taken leave from his position in the vatican to prepare for his legal fight when he returns to Australia. Good thing he is returning on his own accord.
  5. Can't say I'm surprised. Cardinal Pell was "mentioned in dispatches" in many cases brought up at the RC, as covering over other priests who were pedophiles. It is certainly coming home to roost for him. He tried to hide away in the Vatican in a very high position. Don't know how they "make" him come back and face the music.
  6. We will really be noticing it when infrastructure and banks are hit. Imagine if they can get into the water supply system, for instance? Or ATMs went offline? Or traffic signals? I know this affected Chernobyl yesterday, and they had to monitor manually.
  7. Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! (I wannacry, even though chocolate is forbidden for a diabetic with no self-control like me)
  8. So, the story is true, but it's just the video shows the Kiev 2017 assembly?
  9. So, what is this? I can't remember that far back from my school days, so a quick search shows: Habeas corpus (/ˈheɪbiəs ˈkɔːrpəs/; Medieval Latin meaning literally "that you have the body"[1]) is a recourse in law through which a person can report an unlawful detention or imprisonment to a court and request that the court order the custodian of the person, usually a prison official, to bring the prisoner to court to determine if the detention is lawful.[2] Article 3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights provides that "everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person". Article 5 of the European Convention on Human Rights goes further and calls for persons detained to have the right to challenge their detention, providing at article 5.4: "Everyone who is deprived of his liberty by arrest or detention shall be entitled to take proceedings by which the lawfulness of his detention shall be decided speedily by a court and his release ordered if the detention is not lawful." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Habeas_corpus Habeas Corpus rights in Russia - https://www.loc.gov/law/help/habeas-corpus/russia.php
  10. Moderator has sampled Josh Garrels' song, and he is a singer/songwriter on Christian themes, with an interest in charity work rather than full-blown gospel-thumping music. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josh_Garrels
  11. For my love of cats and Eurovision, I present to you Amar Pelos Dois - cat singing style~ http://esctoday.com/148671/cats-singing-salvador-sobrals-amar-pelos-dois-best-way-start-weekend/
  12. Lovely to read your update, Christopher. Who ever heard of a tornado in Hamburg??!
  13. A very descriptive piece - I've imagined myself back up on those beaches you've mentioned. As a tourist, I found all those Gold Coast beaches beautiful. But I bet you know some special ones away from the madding crowds.
  14. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-06-24/camden-residents-evacuated-amid-concerns-over-apartment-cladding/8648692 Rightly, local councils are checking to see if other apartments were also clad with the same "environmentally-friendly" material. So far, 14 have come back as being combustible, and more will obviously fail the test as well. What we have, though, is our cities having to check all buildings, not just apartments. Hotel chains are also needing to reassure that their buildings are safe. At least one chain, "Premier Inn said Friday it had "concerns" about the material used on some of its buildings, though it is different from the type used at Grenfell Tower." Multiply this out to all buildings in all cities - how reprehensible will this act of greediness turn out to be? Yes, Jerry, you're right. How could
