  1. A haven for furries and pedo..ageplayers. Lovely.

    Somethingawful.com has explored this matter in a quite interesting manner already:

    (yeah, most of those are definetly not worksafe)

  2. In other news.. the US attourney general (or whatever he is called) thinks right to habeas corpus does not exist in the US constitution. Whaddayaknow. yay.gif

    huh... well by technicality he's right. but there is a whole article on amending the constitution. So, he may be saying "hint: fix it."

    Alberto Gonzales; the great civil rights campaginer. rofl.gif

    Gonzales Questions Habeas Corpus


    In one of the most chilling public statements ever made by a U.S. Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales questioned whether the U.S. Constitution grants habeas corpus rights of a fair trial to every American.

    Responding to questions from Sen. Arlen Specter at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Jan. 18, Gonzales argued that the Constitution doesn’t explicitly bestow habeas corpus rights; it merely says when the so-called Great Writ can be suspended.

    “There is no expressed grant of habeas in the Constitution; there’s a prohibition against taking it away,†Gonzales said.

    Gonzales’s remark left Specter, the committee’s ranking Republican, stammering.

    “Wait a minute,†Specter interjected. “The Constitution says you can’t take it away except in case of rebellion or invasion. Doesn’t that mean you have the right of habeas corpus unless there’s a rebellion or invasion?â€

    Gonzales continued, “The Constitution doesn’t say every individual in the United States or citizen is hereby granted or assured the right of habeas corpus. It doesn’t say that. It simply says the right shall not be suspended†except in cases of rebellion or invasion.â€

    “You may be treading on your interdiction of violating common sense,†Specter said.

  4. ask a chinease citizen what they think, the Chinease have no intention of conflict with the USA now or in the near future.

    I bet you would'nt have gotten too many "yeah, let's invade iraq"-answers out of americans before their administration started beating the war drum. Do not underestimate any goverment's ability to create motivation for a war if needed. Especially a goverment like the one in PRC.

  5. BUZZARD @ Jan. 19 2007,18:45)]if China ever wanted to strike at Taiwan and get away with it, there could soon not be a better timing...  crazy_o.gif

    not really, as there is a pernament US naval force stationed in the area to prevent such a thing (or at least i recall there was)

    And that little detail known as the Republic of China and it's fairly capable military. wink_o.gif

  6. What kind of ballistic missiles? I seriously doubt they managed to effectively prevent MIRV'd ICBMs.

    The Hetz system is currently designated to deal with a the threat of Scud missiles and Sheehab 3 missiles. Although it is designated to destroy the attacking missile in the Stratosphere, I dont think it can handle MIRV systems. As far as I know, even the USSR at the time found it difficult to built MIRV systems, so currently the US, which is not a threat to Israel,  is the only nation to have this kind of missiles.

    Actually, they did manage to develop MIRV missiles and before that they simply compensated with a slightly dumber way.. they made insane amounts of single-warhead missiles. tounge2.gif

    Even the british Tridents use MIRVs.

    According to Wikipedia, ICBM's can be intercepted. The fun part about this game is that if you orchestrate an organised strike, no amount of AA will save the enemy. Give it a go

    The current ABM systems are far from working, they have been able to take out some test targets with variable success and those have been carefully controlled tests with things like radio beacons attached to the target and no countercountermeasures. crazy_o.gif

    Not true. Israel has developed an Anti Balistic Missile System named "Hetz" (Arrow). This system reached operational status last year. It succesfuly destroyed dummy missiles that recreated the true course of a balistic missilie (They had to specially built a new kind of missile for that purpose).

    By the way, the first agreement between the USSR and the USA limited the number of ABM batteries to 2 around each capital, thus, ABM systems are not a new invention."Hetz" Missile

    What kind of ballistic missiles? I seriously doubt they managed to effectively prevent MIRV'd ICBMs.

  8. Well guys, I dont know wether to laugh or cry...

    I've just taken delivery of my new PC which I ordered a week before christmas, on the website I ordered it from, it guaranteed delivery before crimbo day, delivery was held up by the Asus striker extreme mobo being out of stock. So why present it as a sale item, part of a pre-christmas delivery guarantee?

    So here I am nearly a month later, what do I find when I take the tower out of the packaging?... it looks like somebody has taken a baseball bat to the back of the case!

    I'm not going to name the website but it begins with cyber and ends with system...

    .. and this is why we build our own. wink_o.gif

  9. Hey, thanks for that recommendation Eizei, "Threads" sounds very interesting indeed!

    Oh it is. There are no heroes, silver linings, last minute redemptions or any kind of banding together in face of adversity. Contrast this with the american idea of a nuclear holocaust seen in Jericho, for example. crazy_o.gif

    And by the way.. it's on Google Video for free. yay.gif

  10. I can't beleive this debate has been on going since 2003. This seriously has to be the longest internet debate ever. Someone should call guiness.

    4 years is nothing, have you any idea how long evolution debates have gone on the internet? tounge2.gif

  11. and, most importantly of all, there is only enough fissile material left in the world for one more generation of reactors.

    Nuclear can only be a stop-gap, another solution will have to be found within the next 25 years

    Not if you start reprocessing the waste.

    and we are at least 50 years away from fusion.

    Would'nt count on it. tounge2.gif

  12. Anyway, Stalin and his communist buddies knew that America would intervene if a Korean War happened and hoped North Korea would roll over South Korea before America came to South Korea's assistance. Remember, Kim Il Sung had to gain the support of Mao and Stalin for the invasion of the South.

    If I am not mistaken, their primary objective was to tie down americans in Korea and grind them down with their superior numbers.

    What? According to James Matray, professor of history at New Mexico State University, and me, Il Sung was able to gain the support of major Communist powers because he assured them that the North Koreans would take over South Korea before American forces could join the fight. Il Sung, like Rhee, wanted to unite Korea but under his system of rule. In fact, the United States hindered Rhee from invading the North by making the South Korea military a defensive one.

    Well, my information is based on that recent Mao biography that I read. It's not excatly academic so.. tounge2.gif
