How the EU elite see us & how we see them
So you're not l337? I'm l337. It's in our Constitution that we are all l337.

As this is not a text restricted mobile phone, I much prefer "proper" English. :-)

I had a hot link. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leet

I was commenting on how your commonwealth has peers and commoners, the "elite" as they were called in the post. I said in the US we are all elite or l337 in l337 speak.

It was an attempt at humor but if it has to be explained it is no longer funny.

The torch has definitely been lit & the flames look like getting larger...

MH17: Game -changer in Ukrainian crisis?

"In response, the United States has strengthened its economic sanctions against Moscow - it is threatening even stronger action - though the European Union has so far failed to follow Washington's lead.

But if Russia in any way had a hand in this tragedy then the pressure - especially on the Europeans - for much tougher sanctions will only grow.

I still say that give it time & there'll no longer be need for a separate thread...

...here's hoping that sense prevails before that happens!

5cum 5p33k i5 gr8 2 :) (took me awhile to work out LOL didn't mean lots of love though... um... LOL... just thought everyone was being very affectionate all of a sudden) Of course, the insurrection against our L3337 started when we first used our calculators upside down to work out what 8 X 664751 was...

(edit: oops - thought I was replying to a previous post, but I wasn't - I was posting to thread instead - apologies Sirius :/

Not dumb Sirius :) maybe sheltered? :)

If you mean "5cum 5p33k i5 gr8 2"? then... Scum speak is great too! (I'm much better at it than elite-speak :)) If you're not familiar with 8 X 664751 = 5318008 then... well... good :)

MH17 defining moment for Russia

All eyes are on Putin atm, however...

"Harriet Harman, Labour's deputy leader, said: "The evidence is growing that this was not simply a tragedy but a terrible crime."
Calling it a "moment of reckoning for Europe", she added: "Europe must show its sorrow but it must also show its strength.""

...all eyes should also be on Europe!

Tepid Sanctions

$$$$$ wins in the end!

Billionaires "Horrified"

Hmmn, "them thar Yankees & their love for guns...

Sales of Kalashnikov automatic rifles have rocketed in the U.S. after an import ban was slapped on the company as part of sanctions against Russia's involvement in Ukraine

"Gun retailers said that since the ban came into effect last week there has been a sharp rise in demand as buyers raced to snap up remaining stocks.

The US Department of The Treasury posted a statement on its website saying US citizens are allowed to buy, own, and use Kalashnikovs providing they were imported prior to when the sanctions came into force.

Robert Keller, manager of K-Var Corp., a Las Vegas-based online gun distributor, told CNN: 'We sell some of the Kalashnikov Concern stuff and that has been selling fast."

...$$$$$ & guns, what a "nice" combination.

If 142 Israelis and 154 Arabs are fighting over 69 acres of land for 5 days, who won? To get the answer, you multiply 14215469 by 5, turn the calculator upside down.


Yep!! Nothing changes does it...

Point of order: Automatic rifles cannot be sold in the US of A without a special federal machine gun permit. Is it typical of the UK press to "report" lies?

It seems the European Commission does not like being attacked...

Neuroscientists attack "off course" project

Stand-off in brain debate

EC confident in brain project

What a waste of €1,000,000.

I was waiting for this to make headlines...

EU finally wakes up

"The meeting was a response to those who said the EU had been on the sidelines of the crisis."

But, that was not what I was waiting for, this was: -

"Germany is legally prevented from arming countries involved in conflict, but German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said he would go to the limit of "what is legally and politically possible" to help the Kurds, and he will travel to Iraq shortly."

So either change your laws or step down as controller of the EU! You can't have your bread buttered on both sides.
