Re: President Donald J. Trump

Many people have said he's completely different when the lights are off and the cameras aren't running. I don't know. All I see is a moron. I've heard he's a total suck-up in person. Wouldn't know, I've never met him. I've never met any US president. I am told that as a very young child, I met some...

Re: President Donald J. Trump

If you watch recordings of Trump 20 years ago, there’s quite a difference in the way he speaks relative to today.

Well I was thinking "ally" (green), "enemy" (red), and somewhere in between (yellow).

I was thinking of how well the countries get on with each other.

US and Russia do have diplomatic representation, so it can't be that.

Re: Guess what the Graph Shows!

Well it has to be more about foreign policy/diplomacy than about economic ties, because there's quite a lot of trade between the US and China.

Re: What sports teams do you support?

Actually, I think there is a scenario in which Argentina can lose the match that begins in a few minute, and still stay alive, but it requires them to lose by seven or less, and also to score three tries (or more) more than Australia. This is a theoretical possibility, because Australia could get a ...

Re: What sports teams do you support?

Well that game isn’t going the way many expected. Not the way I expected! New Zealand 34 - 36 South Africa. New Zealand win a bonus point, South Africa do not. New Zealand could have won the tournament in this match, but instead, all four teams still have a chance. Australia v Argentina coming up. ...

New Zealand 17 - 24 South Africa at the half. If New Zealand win and get the bonus point, they have clinched the tournament, even though this is only the seventh match in a twelve-match tournament. If New Zealand win and do not get the bonus point, South Africa and Australia are out, but there is a ...

Re: What sports teams do you support?

Anywhere exciting? What do you find exciting? I may have commented on it elsewhere. I'm guessing the All Blacks will run away with it again? So far, the results are very much consistent with that outcome. South Africa doesn’t seem to be what it once was, and Australia may even be eliminated after j...

Lenin receives two gunshot wounds to the hip and shoulder at the hands of Dora Kaplan, who definitely knew better, but was still executed two days later. He was never the same after that.

Re: Buttons

I know logic systems and relay systems, so I am aware that pushing the button repeatedly does not bring it sooner I’m not sure that that’s always true anymore.

There’s always someone like Trump. Used to be, hardly anyone voted for them. Now they do.

When Trump fails to bring back the good jobs at the saw mill, which way will it go? Intensification, or the pendulum swinging the other way.

Re: Brit-in

I would be surprised if, once Brexit takes place, the UK (with or without Scotland, as the case may turn out to be) would be readmitted on anything like the same terms it has now. Euro will be required, etc.

At least, that's my guess.

Re: Rest in Peace: Senator John McCain

The thinking was that he was perceived as a liberal and that Palin would bring the conservatives in. As Heid says, not the best judgment call. But still all in all a good man. I think that election was where it all started to go wrong for people who might have liked him before. The Republican party...

Re: President Donald J. Trump

I've never understood why this giant-sized twat wanted to be president in the first place. His life must have been pretty good. Enough money to do just about whatever he likes, he could be enjoying retirement if he likes, or continuing in his business ventures if that's his preference. Either one of...
