for the reasons Dem mentioned above, my last comment on Macedonia was already said in my previous posts. as for: I guess you also believe Voltaire was talking nonsense when he said "I do not agree with what you say but I will defend your right to say it with my life". I expected more from Cohen's fa...

nobody can be blamed for what happened before his/her birth. that much is obvious. are Germans going to prisons because their grandfathers killed 6 million Jews? do Americans go to prison for killing (how many were there killed? 40 million or so? i don't realy remember.) Indians?

hmmm... i strongly disagree with you, Dem, on Macedonia (for the reasons obvious from the posts above + the fact that Macedonia was named that even whilst a part of Yugoslavia, and nobody seemed to care much for that bask then). btw. Macedonians do not claim that they are the decendants of Alexandar...

i can't seem to understand (must be a cultural difference) what is it with looting that makes you so upset? the whole cities were run down, and you bother so much with a few TV sets and DVD players that some evil people will steal. again, it may be a misconception i got from poor journalism, but it ...

just for the record (not to go back to the argument): there's a city called Alexandria in Virginia. that's what i meant. but just forget it.

the truth from the news is very strange. it can take different forms and tastes. i'm not going to take sides here, but i'll try to describe the picture WE get here on our TV: - there was a BLACK girl in epileptic shock because she was hungry (that's what we were told, anyway) screaming: 'i don't wan...

It is to say that there is a Macedonia in northern Greece and we don't want the historical region that gave birth to Alexander the Great (although I'm not a fan of the guy) to be confused with another country... yeah, right! is it OK for ancient Egyptian city of Alexandria to borrow that name from ...

hmmm... cold war can exist only if there are at least two interest sides that can destroy each other (they must be at least of similar strength). Sartre did call terrorism 'atom bomb of the underdog', but as long as the US CAN actualy bomb whoever they want and suffer far less damage (millions kille...

i don't know. we may be disappointed in how little of the world we cover. i have two friends who trave REALY a lot, so they did the same thing. on a big map of the world they put red dots where they've been. well, Europe was all red. USA&Canada looked OK. there was a dot here and there on both costs...

Tom, nothing is happening that has never happened before. the world is in crisis because some have 'more than any man needs, and some don't have anything at all' (Reed). 1951. was just after the WWII which happened for more or less the same reasons - if a country wants to be rich, because of binary ...

thank you God that someone noticed! they both are influenced to a great deal in their sound by the second person. both are a collaboration rather than solo effort. both are overproduced. both are 'trendy' (DOALM in its own time). and what's the most important - both feature some great lyrics and tun...

To stop reading of daily newspapers is first on my list, lizzytysh. 2) Watch only the stuff I really like on TV!... Like Star Trek: Enterprise every day at 19:15 hours. 8) Unfortunately, here we have total spreading of sensational journalism thru all the TV stations and press, and also total big-br...

i also thought Because Of was a bad choice before i saw it, but in the end - it did look as something that may interest some kids who'll see it on TV and have never heard of the man.

this is what my dictionary says: geodesy (Noun) 1. The branch of geology that studies the shape of the earth and the determination of the exact position of geographical points ...it's not realy a part of geology, but the rest is OK. geodets are in the US often refered to as surveyors, but that's onl...
