Re: Thailand

In what must be a PR disaster of epic proportions Elon Musk has just baselessly branded the UK cave dive expert instrumental in the rescue a paedophile.

I didn’t commit it to memory as I *thought* I had a pic. It was something like Fifers Against Narcististic something something. Basically it spelled out FANNY :-D

Re: UK - United Kingdom - England, Wales, Scotland, N. Ireland

There were some great ones there. Val McDerMid, the author, had a good Fife one, but the pic I thought I’d taken isn’t there!

I was most delighted with the Down’s young man. He was a cheery soul who definitely knows his own mind.

Re: Michael Cohen

I'm curious how it could jeopardize the investigation? From everything you've said previously, Mueller dots his Is and crosses his Ts too well to be caught off guard by anything Avenatti might do. And if Avenatti is getting the info now, wouldn't that mean that Mueller already has it and has it loc...

I enjoyed "Silk," for the one season that was available to us. (I think it was on PBS.) It never returned.

Re: Julian Assange loses extradition appeal at Supreme Court

The UN Panel has zero legal authority. Assange's tweet asserting willingness to abide by the Panel's determination would have had more credibility had it had been made before he knew the results. UK and Sweden were informed 22.1.16, though the official announcement is not until tomorrow. Assange is ...

Re: LIBERI, et al. v TAITZ, et al. (C.D. CA)

Judge Pregerson should retire. He heard "Taitz" mentioned twice when she and her lawyer were hanging out together at the lectern and he jumped to a conclusion that he shouldn't have. He also complimented counsel for a well argued case. Came across as Grade A Trolling to me. :mrgreen: Comedy Gold.
