Le système bancaire actuel fonctionne sur le principe des "réserves fractionnaires". 
Le système des réserves fractionnaires autorise les banques à "prêter" de l'argent créé de toutes pièces en prenant seulement en garantie leurs "réserves" à la Banque Centrale. 
Ce système permet aux banques de toucher des intérêts sur de l'argent qu'elles ont elles-mêmes créé. 
Cet argent devient, quand il est dépensé, notre monnaie commune, et doit être remboursé. 
95% du total de la monnaie en circulation vient de là.

Statistiquement, il y aura forcément des emprunteurs qui ne pourront pas rembourser, or le système bancaire nous laisse croire que notre argent est garanti à 100%. Mais c'est une promesse impossible à tenir.
Si la monnaie ne revient pas à au système, par exemple parce que beaucoup d'emprunteurs font défaut, les banques menacent de faire faillite et d'enclencher le "risque systémique" que la monnaie disparaisse entièrement. 
Les gouvernements sont victimes de ce chantage, et sont donc forcés de garantir la monnaie en dernier ressort, et de renflouer les banques en cas de crise. 
Conclusion : le système bancaire actuel est, soit une escroquerie, soit un chantage.

The launch was around that time but ascent was slow. The actual jump took place when I posted this message. Here's a video.

Operation White Widow is a short 3D animation made by a certain Jacek Mazur. The high quality visuals introduce the spectator to a suspense which unravels in the last seconds of the video.

Pacific Rim is a sci-fi film where monstrous creatures come out of the depth of the seas to destroy everything in their path. Being impervious to conventional weaponry, giant robots are made to engage in a struggle where victory is uncertain.

Does anyone recognize the location on this picture ? It's taken from a screensaver (Blue Moon from screensavergift.com to be more precise) but there's a chance that the mountains and lake actually exist. Any ideas ?

Introduction
I decided to cut this introduction text to go straight to the point.

To get an idea of an interests have a skim through the latest posts on my stream. If you feel like connecting up then do so. It isn't an obligation but please post a comment or leave a simple hi if you can. Circle count aside, I think it's important that people interact in order to give some real value to social networks.
