excellence would have been pralines, not pretzels. Strange since good pretzels from the US are no where to easily found. German pretzels….yuck
Wont try them anyway

"By making music together, that allows us to feel better together as a group, and then we function better as a group, and we can be more efficient, and we can have more peace."
Yeah, until some idiots install bass speakers in their cars and drive around disturbing the "peace".

I'm not buying this UN load of sour grapes. This is what the lowest common denominator sounds like.
Let's take this Amélie BOTTOLLIER-DEPOIS beauty by the AFP writer:
"If everyone on the planet lived like a citizen of India, we would only need the capacity of 0.8 Earths a year, according to the Global Footprint Network and WWF. "
Yeah right, India, that has on average 3 to 4 kids per family. Great if you're on a farm, terrible if you're living in in overcrowded squalor already.

Japanese music stars form band 'to make the world rock'
No need to form a new band, just put The Yellow Monkey on a world tour. Far far better "rock" band than the these pop and metal bands.

Finished a month long stretch of watching The Expanse. Started it a few years ago but never got to season 3 cuz I dropped Prime. The story is a very good guess at our expansion into the solar system and human nature. The Mars colony goes all Sparta and declares independence, while the folks living in the Asteroid belt “belters” they call themselves or “skinny’s” the slur used to call them, are basically slaves to the inner solar system “inners” and resort to pirating and terrorism. It’s too bad they went cheap on the writing in Seasons 4-6, Season 5 and 6 was half unwatchable due to BS talking and required a lot of fast-forwarding.

I noticed this Tuesday night. Of course, out in the country now for the last 3 months, I'm always looking up at the night sky. Saw a shooting star last week. Planets are easily spotted. Makes me wonder what the average folk wondered for the last 20,000 years before "we knew". We've come so far with the scientific revolution and yet we still love hating and killing each other. What was it Viggo Mortensen said in "The Prophecy" (1995) playing Lucifer: "Humans... and how I love you talking monkeys for this... know more about war and treachery of the spirit than any angel".
Great flick. Walken is classic as well as Gabriel.

The next time you’re watching a movie, or even a favorite TV show, pay attention to the way a scene makes you feel – and then listen for its music.
Until it’s used too much. Ron “crescendo happy” Howard goes way too far. And too many movies these days use it as a filler or selling an album. If I hear more than three different pop/rap/whatever bad songs in the first 5 minutes it’s gone.

Not so much losing a capability as a recognition that a B-52 is never going to get close enough to a target in any kind of contested airspace to successfully drop a gravity bomb. It is however a very capable cruise missile launch platform with an hourly cost less than the B-1 or B-2, and actually only very slightly more expensive to fly per hour than an F-22 (which is why the F-22 program was cancelled at 180 aircraft). Those AGM-86s have a range supposedly in excess of 2400 kilometers if open sources are to be believed. A BUFF can remain well outside Chinese or Russian air defenses and launch waves of these or other stealthy cruise missiles like JASSM-ER and JASSM-XR at targets inside Russia or China.
Where does your knowledge of B-52's and F-22's come from?

Ukraine had been bombing and attacking their own citizens since 2014, Russia had to do something. It's only logical. The UK's Johnson traveled to Ukraine to tell Zelensky to "keep fighting". Just a war pig escalation at this point.

That was funny.
I imported 13R and 19R pink insulation from the US. I don't understand the government/corporate Brown bag policies here on home construction. It's like they want things to fail to keep a work force, which is not a bad idea in the long run, but sure gives us western folks a lot to complain about.

So glad I bought a wood stove
Been searching for months for a cheap one I can restore. Unfortunately, they're not abundant, so most are asking more than half price for a rusty used one.
As far as the government/corporation request, we will always be slipping closer and closer to poverty class as long as the we(NATO)st can't get along.

Rightly so, the world cup should be for decent countries that respect human rights and don't make wars on innocent nations or murder its own people.
You do realize that Ukraine had been murdering their own citizens since 2014 right?

When you have the most heavily armed (by far) country surrounding your country with weapons and military bases. And that country has a long history of making up excuses to attack and destroy other countries, how do you expect China to react?
And your description of the US is a biased incorrect anti US comment not based on truth.
Someone doesn’t take war seriously. Is defending the MIC your job?

I remember when MTV was created and you couldn't find a black or Hispanic person.
This is rather comical. If you remember then you should also remember that hardly no one had cable TV back then and that’s the only way you could watch it. We had to go to the local community college just to see the new show.
Anyway, why would a brand new business trying to stay alive market to an audience that can’t watch it?
Also, only rich/successful bands were making videos back then, including Michael Jackson.

I’d like to apologize for the downvotes from other posters on here. The groupthink on here is so thick, and your questions were valid for someone who doesn’t know. At least Trevor took the time to explain. I’ve been there a couple of times it’s just not my thing, I prefer the mountains and rivers kind of stuff.

Perhaps you should familiarize yourself with the Sovereign Citizens movement...
Perhaps you should stop copy and pasting the daily diversion tactics you read on other sites.
This guy only started claiming Sovereign Citizens on Sept 27, 2022, AND as a defense tactic, not a member. So he's been a Sovereign Citizen for a whole, wait, not even a month. Very silly diversion comment.
However, there is a LOT of evidence that this guy belonged to or supported the ant-white and anti-jewish The Five Percent Nation, "otherwise known as the Nation of Gods and Earths (NGE or NOGE), a sub-sect of Nation of Islam (NOI)"

One part of this is called "The Villages" north of Orlando. I spent my first week there back in 2004 with my Snowbird retired folks. It's so cool. Many many small city centers right out of small-town USA with bars, shops, and restaurants, bowling alleys, dance halls, movie theaters, hospitals, clinics, churches, live music and dance shows in the square, something for everyone. All open to the public as well, just not the residential areas. Go anywhere on a golf cart. The place is growing and growing. Oh and did I mention golf, golf, and more golf?
It's a great place if you can afford it. My folks spent 20 there after retirement, 2 different houses, sold both for a profit, now back up north for their final days.

I think the UK government needs to impose a Tea tax. Seeing how it worked so well the last time, maybe the Brits will rise up and sweep these crime gangs in suits out. After all the privatizing in the UK and my country the US, the logical next step is breaking up the large corporations that dominate and feed their elected stooges. #1 on the list should be the central bankers. They feed on growth through turmoil low wages and war. Larger metropolises are not the answer for the climate change crowd IMO. Back to basics. 1st world nations don’t need much growth but the do need good paying manufacturing middle class jobs.
