    Football World Cup 2006 in Germany

    Well done to Italy, they really rose to the occassion (bad luck to the Germans, i was actually expecting them to win the world cup after Brazil went out). An exciting semi final (despite the lack of goals until the last few minutes) Commiserations Germany, France-Italy final i think.

    Football World Cup 2006 in Germany

    Full marks to the USA for hanging in there even a man down, i only really saw the second half, which got pretty tense as i was cheering for the USA. The Italians were weak. What the hell happened in the first half? [goes off to read about it]

    Football World Cup 2006 in Germany

    The traditional bell humping should be outlawed as a matter of urgency . Congratulations to Germany, for a minute i actually thought Costa Rica might pull something amazing off after they scored their second goal but Germany had done enough (despite flawed defending). Im sort of hoping for an England vs Germany final (devoid of hooliganism), it would certainly be tense and interesting 40 years after Englands last victory at home in the finals against Germany.

    USA Politics Thread - *No gun debate*

    *B-ding* We have a winner. Sputnik Monroe- The confusion you are experiencing is due to the deliberately vague and fuzzy situation that the bush administration has allowed to exist (and furthermore created). They are not POWS (entailing adherence to Geneva convention etc) but IIRC 'Enemy Combatants'. In other words 'They're not prisoners of war! They're smizzoners of warr!" There are Uighurs imprisoned who arent guilty of anything, a US court has cleared them and branded their imprisonment unlawful and yet they have not been released. China views them as dangerous seperatists and would probably treat them even worse, but the US doesnt seem to want to grant them asylum as that would sour relations with China- So they're still chained up in Guantanamo, even though the US government accepts they were mistakenly detained! Thats just the most glaring example of what a total cock up Guantanamo is. --- Washington Post Uighur Human Rights Project Australian Broadcasting Corporation From the ABC article Some of them fled from bombing and were captured and sold by bounty hunters. One of them was a prisoner of the Taliban. POWS. Its absurd.

    The Middle East part 2

    'Free speech!' now 'shut up'! Interesting. Denoir- Hahah. Supah- Uh.. right. Well thank you for telling me what i want or need and thus encapsulating the idiocy (of some of the arguments) of this cartoon war. I suppose ill send those ME foodstuffs i just bought back. Wait i have some CDs of Middle eastern music too. Luckily i have learned i do not need these. Much better to be rid of that nasty foreign stuff. Let us build a wall made of 'mohammed bricks' to keep the nasty muslims, sorry, 'Islamists' out. Im so happy to see that everyone is coming to their senses. Buy ammunition. War is inevitable. Lets go for it!

    European Politics Thread.

    Hah, no its more like because we have had decent governments for more than a hundred years that people are very complacent about civil liberty issues. Instead of saying 'My god, think where this could lead' or similar, people say 'My, my, technology today eh? Cup of tea anyone?' Like that. For 'decent' read 'not openly fascist, communist, genocidal or highly repressive of its own people'. Besides which id hardly call the late victorians more 'decent' (well ok, not the racist, white supremacist, war mongerers among them or those who allowed the poor to starve in the gutters anyhow).

    Laptop + Flashpoint = good stuff?

    I use my (now old) laptop for OFP probably more than my main computer. It works fine, except for the lack of buttons on the keyboard. Having only five buttons right of 'enter' is a pain for a game like this and in fact i find it impossible to zoom in and out on a map(not really a problem except in mission making, but i dont do that anymore..). Actually if anyone has any idea how to rebind the zoom in/out keys for the map/editor id appreciate it.

    Explosion in UK

    Thats a magic car that is. The numberplate even melted though Superficially it seems pretty odd that the windows, at least, arent broken (the small surface area involved maybe?), what is it, a Hyundai or something? They should use it for an advert. Although it does look like that building behind was made of pretty flimsy stuff.

    Racial Violence Continues in Australia

    Major Fubar- Yet surely, in any absolute (typa existential) sense, someone does have the freedom to do the things you have mentioned. A person can usually rape or kill a person. Its physically possible and therefore in a sense they possess the freedom, and even 'right' (i notice a substitution of these words) , in a sort of nietzschean way, to do it. Whether what a person does is considered morally right or wrong is a seperate, subjective value judgement. The 'rights' that a given society allow us to exercise with relative impunity are not in any way identical to the freedoms we are endowed with at birth. And with this said i personally prefer a world in which we are at least not forced to internalise the necessary constraints imposed on us by society. No thought police. For me it is enough that someone should know that something is considered wrong and they should under no circumstances do it. A world in which they believed they did not have the freedom to do it would appear slightly scary to me. [edit- bloody nietzsche]

    Racial Violence Continues in Australia

    Naturally, i would just like to point out here that although i was quoting Bordoy at the time, the comments quoted by the esteemed Major Fubar were directed at no member in particular and were simply a general statement of my revulsion towards racism as such. I would apologise if i thought the language used would create undue offence, but i take the view that we are all insightful and intelligent individuals here and so it seems apparent to me that no such apology will prove necessary. do i win a sucking up medal?

    Racial Violence Continues in Australia

    Bordoy- Lazy regarding matters of race and stereotyping/ taking the easy way out. If it comes to that, i used to have a 'racist friend' until he joined the USMC and we lost contact. He was quite intelligent, until it came to matters of ethnicity when a noticable fuzziness and jokey immaturity became apparent. A racist is a fucking dick. Even if theyre an otherwise nice person, theyre a fucking dick. If you cant see this you're a fucking dick and you need to listen to more world music, or have sex with an immigrant girl or something. I mean we're all human, life is too short. Grow up. Any children reading will be sure to excuse my dirty foreign germanic profanities due my naturally likeable character. shinRaiden Objection your honour, i totally object to this absurd allamagation. Plus im listening to 'Suzanne' by Leonard Cohen which is one of the 17 coolest songs in the human world. Maybe. Oh god, why do we act so inhumanly towards each other. The humanity, the humanity! (+the Chelsea Hotel too)

    Damn. It might have given a few kids asthma, but i was hoping to see it before it went out, it looked so impressive. Oh well, you cant have everything. It was truly a miracle noone was killed though, we usually seem to blessed with a lack of majorly fatal natural or accidental deaths, so we get a chance to kill, riot, and rob (and suicide bomb) each other to our hearts content in this country. Yes, im in that cheery christmas mood
