The Paralympics are giving a tremendous boost to both the confidence of people with disabilities and their acceptance in society. It represents the Olympic spirit as well if not even better than the Olympics themselves

Come to London and see for yourself

The one thing that I do not understand is the ever returning argument that un-trained people with guns are supposed to be able to stop determined shooters in a situation of stress and/or limited vision (such as a dark movie theatre) rather than shooting bystanders.

Anybody who has done military service and learned how to handle different types of weapons can confirm that it is not that easy...

Do Romney supporters think the right thing to do is putting a rape victim in jail after an abortion ?

haven't they suffered enough by being raped ?

WTF?  I'm looking to buy an apt in Europe. Maybe I can spread sum democracy.

Or learn about democracy, if you go to the right place, like Switzerland.

Hello,

Can anybody recommend a good gym in Capetown that does weekly (or day) passes for visitors ?

I will be in the Waterfront district, so ideally around there or easy to get to from there. I don't plan to rent a car, so walking or public transport.

Thanks a lot

try to get tickets for the 2012 Olympics and you get an idea how many people care.

never seen those machines - I wonder whether there is any benefit over the normal ones.

What do the experts here think ?

Smuggle drugs into switzerland

In swiss prison you'll quickly pick up german, italian and brush up on your french

Plus with the swiss humanitarian rights and laws, its virtually a resort

you need to be fast though, as they keep on relaxing the drug laws in Switzerland. You might end up with a punchy fine instead of prison.

One of the best ways to learning languages is learning them like kids who expand the numbers of words they know with age.

http://www.kikaplus.net/clients/kika/kikaplus/

has programs in German for 3 year, 6 year and 10 year olds,

http://www.junior.rai.it/dl/junior/junior.htm

is the equivalent in Italian.

 - but be warned they teach things like science, respect for different cultures and the virtues of helping the weaker and less fortunate - not exactly the Republican agenda...

Some marketing/branding genius found a way to make a lot of money by creating a brand and cashing in on franchise fees.

But as these schemes tend to work and people are gullible, gyms and trainers have to ask themselves whether they should offer it or not - as a growing number of members ask for it....

That type of exercises and the intensity is suitable for athletes (sprinters, hurdlers, long jumpers etc have always trained that way), but could be dangerous for a person who has never done any sports or workout.

A novice to training who wants to get fit is much better served by starting with a circuit of good old favorites, like rope skipping, high knee running on the spot, push-ups, chins, lunges, bodyweight squats etc - but there is little money to be made there...

A good example are classes that some London based Olympic athletes are giving in schools and community centers:

Wait until you meet the 10 Dollar coffee at Starbucks in Zurich
16  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Cost of living in the world's major cities on: February 21, 2012, 01:40:14 AM
it's from june 2001...price in paris of house up to 150% since, gasoil up to 70 %...

The June figures are there as a reference. The figures are as of December or January. And your observation is to the point if you look at Paris' June figure and compare it to the bar
17  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Cost of living in the world's major cities on: February 21, 2012, 12:52:35 AM
i think a better gauge would be the price of housing per sq. ft

Housing is included in the index.

Interesting table - if you thought gas was expensive in the US, think twice...

One Gallon (3.8 litres) now costs 8.55 Dollars in Switzerland, 8.13 Dollars in England, 7.20 in Japan....

20  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Your thoughts on this? on: January 23, 2012, 12:46:21 AM
shows how politicians and media in the US are good at turning marginal topics (gay marriage, abortion, debt ceiling, what people do in private), that would be insignificant in any other country into "important" topics while ignoring anything important.

Accra? Interesting.  Why?


a) Dynamic, you can feel the buzz in the air
b) Friendliest people on Earth
c) Weather
23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Your City/Town of Preference? on: January 19, 2012, 01:39:08 PM
West Linn, Oregon

The racial makeup of the city was 93.32% White, 2.91% Asian, 0.54% African American, 0.35% Native American, 0.08% Pacific Islander, 0.74% from other races, and 2.06% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 2.87% of the population.

The median income for a household in the city was $72,010, and the median income for a family was $83,252 (These figures had risen to $94,844 and $108,821 respectively as of a 2007 estimate.

If that ain't gangsta I don't know what is.  Grin

That sounds proper dull and boring.
There are loads of great cities.

In no particular order I love and could live in all of these: London, New York, Paris, San Francisco, Atlanta, Christchurch (New Zealand), Hong Kong, Accra (Ghana), Berlin, Rio de Janeiro, Miami, Brussels plus there are probably a handful more that did not spontaneously come to mind.

Heard that Capetown is superb as well, but haven't had the opportunity to visit.

what's the point about warming this topic up again? I'm sure all people involved feel most miserable and want to and need to move on.

A little surprised though that there are laws that cover drunk driving but not drunk handling of loaded fire arms.

Better than the Paris subway where Gipsies walk through the carriages playing their awful accordions in your face and only move on and leave you in peace once you give them money.
