  1. And did these plotters back the Nazi regime for at least 10 years prior to the bomb plot?
  2. If the world's first clean coal plant in Germany, which is built by a Swedish company, succeeds, then the coal lobby in the U.S. will rejoice, as the U.S. will be the king of coal for centuries to come.
  3. I tried to make Pad Thai sauce using the following recipe: Sauce * 2 T almond butter * 1/3 cup coconut oil * 1 T nama shoyu or Braggs * 1 teaspoon coriander powder * 1/2 jalapeno pepper, deseeded * 2 teaspoon lemon juice * 1/3 cup filtered water It tasted horrible, and I had to throw it out. How does one make a good Pad Thai sauce? And how edible would it be if I left the seeds in the jalapeno peppers?
  4. I heard that Cruise doesn't have an accent in the movie. And why in the hell didn't the Germans make the Valkyrie movie? Bah!
  5. Aren't the big 3 hourly wages the same as the "transplants"(Honda, Toyota, BMW), which is around 25-28 dollars per hour? So the difference then is the pension and health care benefits, right? If so, then obviously the big three are going to have problems because of the the big 3 having a larger pool of retirees. Some questions: In regards to the pension, does the big three belong to a multi-employer plan like the Teamsters central and western states? Isn't relying on one company dangerous? And recent news just confirmed that 401Ks are a failed experiment. Is the multi-employer plan the only way to go? How is the corporate pension(detroit's) plan different from the multi-employer plan?
  6. JonS, what does "I'm beached as mean?" The whale video in your sig is very interesting. What role does "as" play?
  7. Isn't it impossible to succeed in these LDCs(Less developed countries) that are still stuck in stage 2 of the demographic transition? Why would these improvised people lay down their arms to take up pauperism, which is what all the do-gooders want? If they are going to live hellish lives no matter what, why exactly should they be nice to foreigners? Unhappy people will do unhappy things; this is obvious. There is no solution to Afghanistan, and people need to get over it stat.
  8. In the unedited version there is more to the IV line, but yeah there isn't enough info besides the fact that there was a severed limb.
  9. No, no. I'm asking how the paramedic would've responded in comparison to the combat medic.
  10. Not sure how salon.com was able to get helmet-cam footage of a dying soldier, but here it is: http://www.salon.com/news/feature/2008/10/14/friendlyfirevideo/ The leg was blurred on the family request by the way. On the afternoon of Dec. 4, 2006, Pfc. Albert Nelson was wounded and Pfc. Roger Suarez-Gonzalez was killed during an exchange of fire in "building #2" close to the south bank of the Euphrates River in Ramadi, Anbar province, Iraq. This video, which was recorded from the point of view of the men in building #2 that day, appears to show an American tank firing on them, followed by an attempt to assign official blame for the death of Suarez and the injuries to Nelson to Iraqi insurgents firing mortars. Nelson later died of his wounds Can anyone comment on how it would be different if a civilian paramedic responded to, say, a car crash where there was victim with a severed limb? I'm not suggesting anything about the nature of the care in the video above; I'm just curious as to how it would differ.
  11. So the UK still has pre-paid water meters, but it's illegal to shut off the water? I was under the impression that Water Act 98 made it illegal. Am I wrong?
  12. Do you people in Europe have to use cards to access water at home? I read that it was banned in some countries, yet I continue to hear about talk about meters in the news in regards to droughts.
  13. I just found out that my prepaid card is depleted after I put in my detergent and clothes into the machine. Why can't we have coin operated machines? What other areas of life will force us to use the pre-paid cards? Will I have to insert a card into the toilet whenever I go poo in the near future?
  14. But aren't VWs and Nissans made in Mexico if you buy in the U.S.? The $50,000 plus cars are probably made in their native countries. How many of the parts for Japanese made cars are made in China or Taiwan? Are BMWs and Mercedes the only pure German cars? Do they also have global connections in production? I think the only sensible way to keep car manufacturing in the U.S. is to nationalize the automotive industry. It can be made self-sufficient just like how Nixon mandated the USPS to be self-sufficient. If the big 3 are gone, then doesn't that mean 1 out of 12 or so will lose their jobs in the U.S.?
  15. I think it's safe to say that they won't get their bailouts, so what's in store for the big 3? Anyone here directly affected by this?
