Well this is interesting. You can't take it with you they say. I bet the Australians from Greece thank their lucky stars today. 
Greeks have overwhelmingly voted 'no' to the terms of a European bailout, risking financial ruin in a show of defiance that could splinter Europe. Official results from the ministry of interior showed 'no' ahead with 61.5 per cent compared to 38.5 per cent for the 'yes' vote with nearly 85 per ...

Never mind gay rights here is a bigger debate. Australia has 2 maps an Aboriginal map and an European version. The Aboriginal map looks like a European map based on languages and traditions. Contradictory to say the least. At present the country is run by 7 parliaments and it's members must hold office for 6 years to qualify for the pensioners scheme. Qualifications? You must be an Australian mmm Tony Abbot dual citizens no problem? Apart from that primary school is all what is required. After all a land of opportunity. Oh yes the pension scheme is rather generous more what ordinary people make in a year.

Perth CBD, CBD stands for Central Business District. This scenery will be history pretty soon. The megalomaniacs have to change the area. The new development is called Elizabeth Quays . Can't give it a local name needs to be British. Mmm when do we get our 4th of July.

No, no, this is simply a swan practicing the martial arts Snake Pose that they use when about to grab the nose of a curious dog that doesn't know any better.

What a story, infantry once dug in are still the best means to hold a position. Heroes are at their best when the enemy is doing it's worst. 
During a six-night battle in November and December 1950, at temperatures of minus 30, William Barber's company of a little more than 240 Marines held off more than 1,400 Chinese soldiers at Toktong Pass.

This is typical of Malaysian politics. The men couldn't get a root in a womens prison with a fist full of pardons. Malays are lazy corrupt and come out with shit like this all the time to cover up the fact they are worse than useless. You will find the herd will follow because if one stands out they will find themselves in trouble. Nothing is going to change in Malaysia. Nothing.

Seen Quo Vadis? all those Christians eaten by the lions? Seems to be another myth. There is no evidence it ever occurred.

+Paulina Friedman the Romans have always been portrayed as throwing Christians in front of the lions. There is no evidence this ever occurred. Quo Vadis is just an example how this myth was perpetuated. The Romans presumed innocent till proven guilty.

The difference between Israel and Islam. One shows appreciation the other just shrugs it off as a gift from allah.
