Do you see the person standing in the open door of the
yellow car (Soo line?) in the middle of the train?



I don't think it is. The door slides open, so if it were open it would be to the right of center.

Pixels, Scotty more pixels!

I am left with the decision to stop posting here until further notice.

ALL, including Roman Catholic's, in a Free Country, have the 'Right' to be heard, and attempt to influence events.

Correct?
Incorrect. Falun Gong have no right to be heard. ISIL has no right to be heard. Roman Catholic's in Church of England times. Christians in Rome. Jews in Saudia Arabia. Why there is no such thing as a free country. Because for so long in our history, country meant religion.

Even in the USA, there are far to many who scream it is a Christian country; only tolerating a smattering of other religions, then only if they don't get uppity!

When register to vote in the US you have to state your race.
Why?
One for instance with Scandinavian heritage and is race number 5.
Can anybody explain US catagories of human race?

You must be mistaken, it is not a REQUIREMENT to state your race. Decline to state is an acceptable answer.

Don't Think so.

Think again

What we did to the Nazis, their Families, and their Children, during that war:

WILL be done to Them in this war.

Always has been. Always will be.

The problem is there is no war.

Dull if you don't get over it you will be doomed to remain a worm.

No, I suspect a worm will be to high a life form; he will reincarnate as a dung beetle. ;-)

Only the highest moral authority
http://www.foxnews.com/world/2015/07/01/isis-executioners-spare-no-one-killing-74-children-for-crimes-including-not/
Just this week, two children whose ages were not known were crucified in the Mayadin, Deir Ezzor province in eastern Syria after ISIS accused them of not properly fasting during Ramadan. The children’s bodies, put on public display on crossbars, each bore a sign explaining their violation during the holy month for Muslims that runs June 17 to July 17. With each execution justified by ISIS' medieval interpretation of the Koran, the group is attempting to portray itself as the true practitioners of Islam, say experts.

Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!

EU upsets professional photographers

The paragraph that's causing the upset...

"On the “freedom of panorama” principle, such as the right to create and share images and photographs of public buildings, the text cautions that the commercial use of such reproductions should require authorization from the rightholder."

...so all those holiday snaps you took, sell some of them, have you obtained the authorisation from the building owner?

May or may not be the building owner who can grant it. The architect may be the person who ultimately owns the copyright. He may or may not have done the work "for hire."

Rights clearance is a very littered minefield.

Oh, and over on this side of the pond, better never take a real camera out inside a mall to take a snap. Mall security will throw you out so fast you will break the speed of sound. Copyright.

A different kind of hacking
http://www.sacbee.com/news/local/article25839070.html
In a news release issued late Tuesday afternoon, officials with the FBI’s Sacramento field office said that although customers in a variety of Northern California service areas were affected by the outage, the vandalism that resulted in the outages was confined to “a single geographic location in the San Francisco Bay Area.”

Back in 2000:

Jeb was supposed to be the Presidential Candidate, not "W". Long story.

He would have made a better President, than his brother.

Yes he would have but then again that's a pretty low bar to get over.

Don't you need a pretty deep pit mine to find the bar?

The Chinese Rent/Lease much of 'The Donalds' Prime, and Expensive, Real Estate Holdings.

Those must be the poor ones that have to lease. On this coast they own the real estate and lease it to the duck!

My local elementary school just became a ESL (English as a Second Language) school with Mandarin as the primary language.

Didn't know "the duck" was into manufactured goods, thought it was mostly payday loans and real estate.
