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 😁
Looks like Christmas came too early (as Bond might have said 😏)
Fantastic cars with a very special engine, the busso V6 as an Alfista I'm very happy youve noticed this car 😁
That must be an English reindeer: in a tropical country and badly sun-burned.
Rudolph the red-pelt reindeer?
...had a very sun-burned nose,
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!
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.
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.
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!
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?
Oh, hardly! 😁 It's not that kind of song!
Cinema’s still closed here 🙁
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!! 😂
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.
In your defence the audience in the cinema reportedly liked your singing better than Brosnan's. 😁
That's not a huge compliment, though.
