Jesus Struck by Lightning .... Twice

<t>Quote The guy unfavored by God was a forest ranger who (I'm not making this up) committed suicide. He probably thought he was immortal. That reminds of the German young woman who was in the middle of the night club in Bali that was bombed by extremists about a year ago. 100's of people died or we...

Question to Paul-Is Nazilike propaganda allowed in your forum??

<t>I was in the US at the time of Sabra and Shatilla. All my information came from US media, or the BBC. I read the NY Times religiously those days. Sharon was definitely involved. He was present at the scene. I know that, because I clearly recall conversations that I had with Americans (many Jewish...

Question to Paul-Is Nazilike propaganda allowed in your forum??

<t>It's no big deal, zerdna. I just wished to point out the silliness of your retort that whenever someone is critical of Israeli policy, then one must actually have something in mind "about the Jews", or that one is not thinking. Something that I've read repeatedly on this forum, and elsewhere. My ...

<t>Please don't patronize me. Go and read what you wrote again. Here it isQuote I just don't believe you guys give so much more crap about palestinians than about congolese, sudanese, iraqi, iranians, afgani, syrians, and the rest. The only conclusion i could make it is not about Palestinians. It mu...

Question to Paul-Is Nazilike propaganda allowed in your forum??

<t>The comparison was meant only in so far that in both cases an assumption was made that a small nation could be made to disappear. Your last statement to the effect that I'm anti-semitic is stupid. You are being absolutely stupid to label anyone critical of Zionist policy as anti-semitic. I have a...

London attractions

<r>QuoteGet out of Waterloo station via the main exit down the steps (Eurostar side, not the Shell exit). Go through the underpass to exit on Stamford Street (runs parallel with Embankment, heading east). Half way along is the Stamford Arms, order a Ploughmans with Stilton. Okay, I'll do that QuoteV...

London attractions

<t>When I'm in London, I spend the whole day walking from bookshop to bookshop in the West End. Foyle's requires many, many visits. Then I spend the night hopping from pub to pub, eating and drinking: too many really interesting ones to list. I also like to walk up and down the East End: I was an am...

An Annecdotal Summary of the Occupation of Iraq

<t>I think, if one wishes to identify one single burning issue in the Arab/Israeli conflict, then that would be the settlements. This is a very difficult issue for the Israelis themselves, and my Israeli friends on this forum, may correct me if I'm wrong. The settlers are people who typically choose...

Alternating-sign matrix conjecture

<t>QuoteCan anyone explain this physics/math area and its applications to finance? James,What makes you think ASM's have anything to do with finance? PS The ASM conjecture was proven in 1992 by Zeliberger, then there came a 2nd, simpler proof by Kuperberg a few years later. The relationship to paths...

An Annecdotal Summary of the Occupation of Iraq

Quote Yesterday Israel started to bring in laws to stop mixed marriages. Are you serious? Where did you read that?Incidentally, I personally believe that mixed marriages are probably the only glimmer of hope in the Arab/Israeli mess.

Woland, Behemoth, et al....

<t>Quote Another odd thing I've heard was that Dostoevsky is very different in English. That's not odd at all -- I have no idea how Russian literature can ever be captured in English. Another *really* odd thing that I've heard is that Scott Moncrief's translation of Proust's "In search of lost time"...
