My friend in Tokyo just told me believes one or two of her friends in Sendai have died.

Just got through to a friend in Tokyo, she's fine, but very scared.

The city is in a controlled state of panic, but she's having trouble getting in contact with friends who are in the North.

Watching it now... the water is still rampaging through some small coastal cities.

I'm actually a really big fan of William IV - had he lived longer the British monarchy would probably more resemble the Northern European monarchies in The Netherlands or Scandinavia.

Eliminate
2 - Anne
1 - John
1- Edward II

Keep
1- Elizabeth II (you keep trying to get rid of her... I'll keep voting to save her Tongue)

While I am aware I may be branded a turncoat in my party, I believe you should return to the Senate to do the great job you were doing previously, you also have my first preference and endorsement.

Calm down. I don't lament the loss of my foreskin.

No. I can't imagine what use I would have for a foreskin.

I'm not responding... but if you had one... you'd know lol

I don't like it - would never ever, ever consider doing it to my son, if I have one.

But I think those that are obsessed with it either way have some other issues to address.

Don't have much time for him, but wouldn't call him a HP per se. Neutral, I guess.

I agree that his fans are generally terrible.

I'm just entertaining the thought.  I'm not sure I would even do it.  I do like the fact of having two close friends working right along side me.  Plus, I wasn't fired from Convergys because of my calls.  In fact, my supervisor said if it were based solely on my calls, I would be getting a raise.  I was one of their best agents just coming out of training.  The company was just trying to downsize, and they were looking for anything to get rid of me.  These two ladies have been at CH Robinson since September.  They can give me encouragement and it will give us something more to talk about together.  I'm not worried at all.  I'm not going to entertain other call centers, but this one is mild enough.  I'll be just fine.

I have thought about temp agencies, and I did actually go to one today, right before coming home.

I was talking to my parents this evening over a roast and potatoes dinner and they would really like me to get the Order Puller job that pays $12.97 an hour.  They said it will be manual labor, but I've done the exact same thing when I was working at Wal-Mart during my last year of college.  I would just have to invest in a back brace and I'll be fine.  I don't want to give up my Sundays, because I love going to church, but $12.97 is impossible to pass up.  That would be roughly $27,000 a year (officially $26,920).


Gahhhhhh!!!!!

This kind of the problem with Atlasia... we need people who want to actually govern, rather than just campaign... Tongue

I'm very willing to Govern! But when it comes to this race, I realize I have no shot at winning. Actually, I'm kind of entering because I'm scared of Jasengle winning. But if I do (by some miracle) win, I'd take my duties seriously.

Well Jasengle is a formidable political machine...

It also forms part of the Ataturk memorial at the top of Anzac Parade in Canberra.
8274  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk? on: March 07, 2011, 06:57:55 pm
Probably one of the best dictators in the 20th century...his politics were actually progressive, instead of simply being less of a dangerous retard than the next man.

Actually I think there's evidence that personally he was far classier than most leaders of the 20th century, dictator or not. Consider the fact that he renamed one of the sites on the Gallipoli peninsula "ANZAC Cove" in honor of the dead Australian and New Zealand soldiers who were defeated by his forces in WWI there, and that part of his speech on the battle ended up on the AUSTRALIAN monument to the dead.

My understanding is that he was always deeply respectful of the Australian and New Zealand soldiers who fought there.

Between that, plus his liberalisation/secularisation of what had been a theocratic regime, I think overall FF. I'm sure he has plenty of negatives, and perhaps I haven't researched him enough to have a most-informed opinion, but I have favourable opinion of him.

That's my view also, and here is the speech.

Quote
"Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives...you are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us, where they lie, side by side here in this country of ours. You, the mothers who sent their sons from faraway countries wipe away your tears. Your sons are now lying in our bosum and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land, they have become our sons as well."

"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result."



I'd be lying if that thought hadn't entered my head several times in this thread.
