plus since I have 3 titanium screws in My left leg, cremation might be a problem...

No issue at all; pacemakers, radiation producing implants, silicone* implants, those are issues.

*saline is fine.

It is a generational problem more than anything else, but when it is pointed out we get the BHL brigade complaining that we are denigrating the younger generation!
hate hate hate, is that all you have anymore?

And it isn't a generational problem. It is an issue between those who have lives and those who have no life. If you don't have a life then you don't have to be on a computer, er smart phone checking out your life 24/7/365.

Big difference and easy to recognize.

Sauwastika

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sauwastika

The term sauwastika (or sauvastika[1][2]) (as a character: 卍) is sometimes used to distinguish the left-facing from the right-facing swastika symbol, a meaning which developed in 19th century scholarship.[3]

The left-facing variant is favoured in Bön and Gurung Dharma; it is called yungdrung in Bon and Gurung Yantra in Gurung Dharma. Both the right-facing and left-facing variants are employed in Hinduism and Buddhism; however, the left-facing is more commonly used in Buddhism than Hinduism and the right-facing is more commonly used in Hinduism than Buddhism.[4]

In Buddhism the left-facing sauwastika imprinted on the chest, feet, palms of Buddha and also the first of the 65 auspicious symbols on the footprint of the Buddha.[5][6] In Hinduism the left-facing sauwastika is associated with esoteric tantric practices and often stands for Goddess Kali


The right facing diagonal swastika is the offensive one.

Tis all after the fact BS anyway, because if you look at the symbol from the other side, guess what ... so any 3D version is both!

As to avatars, a few of us go back a while and remember the photo of the undressed gentleman sitting on the pot IIRC with a keyboard that a former MOD liked to post all over the boards. I also remember that at one point the photo had to be cropped a bit to make the powers that be happy. Eventually the photo was deleted and the links to it went poof.

I know in Germany that the photo of Adolph would be officially censored, as would those of swastikas. However the server these boards are on is in California USA. I doubt that hosting the avatar would cause issues for professors and students traveling to Germany, but if it does then officially they will be removed. Otherwise unless there are copyright issues or the intent is clearly to annoy, antagonize, be hostile or threatening I doubt there is a reason for action*. I mean, there is a person using tRump as an avatar**, I can't think of a more despicable avatar to post today, but he is free to show his deplorable ignorance to the world.

Now if someone still has a copy of the gentleman on the pot, photoshop on an orange rug and we will have a great Rump avatar!


*personal opinion, I'm not a mod in case there is any question.
**that photo is very likely copyrighted to some wire service. If I knew which I would encourage them to file a DMCA notice with the Regents.

You'd have better luck on the lottery :-)

Or get a better more coherent answer by asking "Watson". ;-)

Cheers.

Seems so. CLYDE asks for questions to be reposted, which was duly done, and they remain unanswered. Looks like other threads have caught CLYDE's attention. Oh well.

A horde of threads have caught his attention. A horde of posts will surly follow.

Continue to 'Instruct' the Waning Empire. Forgetting who will be the great future influence (possibly control) of Asia and Europe.

Unfortunately. These two Expanding Empires. Have no Foundation of Law.

Neither Europe nor Asia are empires, they are continents, comprised of many nations. What are the nations you believe to have expanding empires?

Please bobby, stop playing the bot's game. Eliza is more interesting.

It does read as if the bureaucrat in the EU whose job it was to display the US flag made a mistake. Bureaucratic errors... par for the course. Nothing to see here.

Your'e right Guy there are differences and the results speak for themself. Of course you have nothing to complain about because your military career included single payer health care.


No it did not.
It sure did. Absolutely. Every second while you were on active duty is was single payer. Cant believe these trumpettes falsehoods! [both puns intended]

Missed that by about 7 months. VETERANS in my age group are covered by a contract with HUMANA. My deductible is in the THOUSANDS of dollars per year. I get a bill every visit. I started paying more and more over the last 8 year.
Group 8, makes too much $$. boo hoo hoo

Tell me how the price of healthcare came down under obama.
sorry Clinton reform, blame the right democrat, but Bush signed off on it.

And when all veterans alive today reach 65, we all join the medicare system.
Post truth. Also known as: Or, why is my good friend getting VA care? Of course he is in group 1, perhaps that's the difference, but the word "ALL" is still post truth. Yes, he had the option to receive medicare, but citizens have that right.

@WK, guy invents meanings of words so they fit his preconceived fantasy notions.

to him a republican is not a conservative. they are Marxists and have no discernible difference from a democrat. only the most extreme tea party is conservative.

So like most of the other subjects he possibly attended, he failed "Politics 101" then.

Can't say that, he might have been on meds then.
