    Does that apply to people born in Leap Years?

    A few days ago the Taliban found the time to invade the Norwegian embassy in Kabul. There they found the DVD of the animated childrens movie "Kurt becomes cruel". I haven't seen it myself, but the Taliban absolutely HATED it! 🤬


    They also found a pair of skis and they were facinated. Was it beccause the skis had bindings of the Kandahar type, named after a Afghan city? Are they planning to field ski troops or maybe start a ski resort to attract tourists?

    Indeed. Amazing how we all survive really. 😉

    You have scientific mind. You may have found may the exception that proves the rule (that's how scientific science works) .

    Or I could just be a trouble maker!

    You have a trouble-making scientific mind! 🤣

    I'm not going to bore you with politics, but it's midnight on election day an the new PM just did the traditional walk from party HQ to the parliament. The only security I saw was one parked police car and a single bodyguard. Makes me proud! 🇧🇻

    Boring you with politics, I've been watching a German news channel. My German isn't perfect (Higgins will laugh hard at that one) but I think Norway has elected a left-leaning government, subject to coalition, and will have for the first time about 50/50 woman/men in the parliament. Is that about right, N24?

    That's about right, yes. 47% of the new MPs are women, up from 41% in the previous four years. It's also been a tradition since the 80's to fill half the cabinet with women. We don't know yet how many parties will be in the cabinet, but it will be a socialist/agrarian center government. I don't know of any other countries where the agrarian party is leaning to the left. Oher fun facts: the next Labour Prime Minister is the second richest MP in parliament with a mostly inherited fortune of about 6 million dollars. The conservative PM for the last eight years has a much smaller fortune of about 500 000 dollars.

    They’ve just started to build the Christmas displays at Seaside Mall. It will take until the end of the month to complete. Christmas comes early in the Philippines 😁


    Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.
  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 18,127MI6 Agent

    Looks like Christmas came too early (as Bond might have said 😏)

    That must be an English reindeer: in a tropical country and badly sun-burned.

    🤣🤣

    Tomorrow I'm going to watch a movie at the cinema. I'm watching "Dune" with a friend and it's my first cinema visit since "Once upon a time in Hollywood". It'll be great!

  • The Domino EffectThe Domino Effect Posts: 3,215MI6 Agent

    That's the last film I saw in a cinema too! I'm going to hold out for NTTD which I believe will open some time in 2026.

  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 18,127MI6 Agent

    I too intended NTTD to be my first visit to the cinema after the major Covid restrictions, but I've read the first Dune novel and the director is very good so I feel I had to go see it.

  • The Domino EffectThe Domino Effect Posts: 3,215MI6 Agent

    I just bought my NTTD tickets! October 7, 6:30pm, big comfy-seats in a VIP cinema. I may even arrive early enough to avail myself of the in-seat service for a martini, a Heineken, or perhaps a Blackwell rum and soda. Hmmmm....counting down the sleeps!

  • BarbelBarbel ScotlandPosts: 31,542Chief of Staff

    Just bought mine. September 30th. 😁

    Congratulations, Barbel. Is it true that you'll be singing along, out loud, at the top of your voice, to Billie Eilish?

  • BarbelBarbel ScotlandPosts: 31,542Chief of Staff

    Oh, hardly! 😁 It's not that kind of song!

  • CoolHandBondCoolHandBond Mactan IslandPosts: 4,041MI6 Agent

    Cinema’s still closed here 🙁

    Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.
  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 18,127MI6 Agent

    Of course not. But we've all heard the stories about you and "Who wants to live forever" at the local cinema when they showed Highlander. 😁

    Not to mention Mamma Mia!! 😂

  • BarbelBarbel ScotlandPosts: 31,542Chief of Staff

    Oh damn, I thought I'd managed to hush them up. 😖 TP promised not to tell anyone, but I bet if he was here now he'd deny it was him.

  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 18,127MI6 Agent

    In your defence the audience in the cinema reportedly liked your singing better than Brosnan's. 😁

  • BarbelBarbel ScotlandPosts: 31,542Chief of Staff

    That's not a huge compliment, though.
