I think Karla und Henrika are German. Their leotards say Deutschland, and their fans in red in the stands are waving German flags. I'd sure like to see the other competitors.

You're right! I just noticed that too and changed the title. I saw the big sign about the Netherlands and thought it was a Dutch event.

It's in Heerlen (Netherlands) but this was the German team, and boy are they good! I wonder what the other teams were like.

The Dutch take bicycling very seriously. It's their contribution to the one-world government conspiracy, of course.

That is beyond astonishing. I'm not sure if I can believe my eyes...How in the hell did they do that??? When I was a kid I could ride a bike with no hands, and I (in my child-like mind) thought I achieved the impossible, but this, this is like sending people to the moon complicated.

It surely helps to have her own mother in the White House too. Although I've seen speculation that it causes Barack to take more trips than he otherwise would. Joking, I'm sure.

Oops....

Oklahoma Voters May Have Accidentally Voted Against Ten Commandments, Too

As a law professor noted to CNN, however, the religious zealotry of these lawmakers may now be in serious self-conflict:

Rick Tepker, the first member of the University of Oklahoma School of Law faculty to try a case before the U.S. Supreme Court…called the passage of the measure “a mess” with implications unknown until a case that challenges it arises.

“Many of us who understand the law are scratching our heads this morning, laughing so we don’t cry,” he said. “I would like to see Oklahoma politicians explain if this means that the courts can no longer consider the Ten Commandments. Isn’t that a precept of another culture and another nation? The result of this is that judges aren’t going to know when and how they can look at sources of American law that were international law in origin.”

Hi Brookly,

We are still under the monarch, we had a referendum in 1999 with two questions.

The first question asked whether Australia should become a republic with a President appointed by Parliament, a bi-partisan appointment model which had previously been decided at a Constitutional Convention in February 1998. The second question, generally deemed to be far less important politically, asked whether Australia should alter the constitution to insert a preamble. Neither of the amendments passed.

152 Almost Killed by Space Hookers  Sat, Nov 6, 2010 6:36:54pm

Out of boredom, I took a peak at the stalkers.

Snork AKA Iapyx, AKA Earth2moonbat AKA Larry, really has a bug in his ass about me lately. They all rather do, however his so called "debunking" of the problems with Fracking is hilarious and written with the same non- level of scientific accuracy and talking point repetition you would come to expect.

As always, there is nothing to document or back up any of his false claims and what he says is ludicrous at.

He is going after the film Gasland. Here is the trailer:

Here are some fun quotes:

Junk geology. Again I welcome detail from people with knowledge, but the gas is at depths well below where the drinking water is, and the process simply doesn’t have the energy to connect the two layers. Perhaps the most egregious bit of junk science in the entire film is when he finds a home with methane in the tap water, and lights the gas on fire, when it’s well known that naturally-occurring biogenic methane in drinking water exists.

Except that you are fracturing the rock and creating fissures underground as the method of extraction. From the trailer itself, you can see the methane bubbling out from the ground. Clearly there was some "mixing of layers" whatever that might mean. The fact that people can light their tap water on fire would be another big clue!

Unfortunately for "scientists" like snork, the clear evidence of large amounts of methane in the water does not constitute large amounts of methane in the water.

Another gem:

Junk toxicology. Claims that there is some kind of witch’s brew with 596 (!) toxic components being injected into the groundwater, when these substances are either non-toxic, or in very low concentrations, and again, the gas wells aren’t hydraulically connected to the drinking water wells. The 596 figure is misleading, because in any one situation no more than 12 are used.

The movie then goes on with more junk toxicology, claiming that people who live around these wells have elevated benzene in their blood, when real science shows that 1) there’s no benzene in the drinking water, and 2) the people with elevated benzene are smokers, and smoking is known to cause elevated benzene.

The 596 number comes from the specifically tested for compounds found by independent researchers and the list of chemicals that the companies themselves have released. Of course, actual fact checking is beyond Snork, but there are real interviews in the film with real facts. There are medical professionals talking about what they found in people's bodies and what these things do to people. The bit about brain lesions and organ failures is not made up.

He harps on benzene - which is a carcinogen and toxic in its own right. Independent analysis has shown toxic levels of it in many streams - where there is quite clearly hydraulic mixing - but it is also interesting how he neglects things like found strontium and arsenic levels, which are deadly poisons themselves.

He gives no back up to his wild and false claim that only 12 compounds are used with the old and stupid canard about "small amounts." We call poisons, poisons, because it only takes a small amount to make you sick or kill you.

Let's actually fact check kids:

[Link: geology.com...]

Along with the introduced chemicals, hydrofrac water is in close contact with the rock during the course of the stimulation treatment, and when recovered may contain a variety of formation materials, including brines, heavy metals, radionuclides, and organics that can make wastewater treatment difficult and expensive. The formation brines often contain relatively high concentrations of sodium, chloride, bromide, and other inorganic constituents, such as arsenic, barium, other heavy metals, and radionuclides that significantly exceed drinkingwater standards (Harper, 2008).

As long as Tata Motors doesn't fuck with the Land Rover (or Jaguar) formula/essentials, they'll be around for a while yet.

Someone in India has been making aftermarket spares for some time. I'm about to eBay some 24v electrics from Kuala Lampur. Malta also has a good dealer.

Hi Jadespring, I didn't realize you were Australian.
I can agree with a lot of your sentiment however the left managed to get it to a referendum before.

Not forgetting that the party that introduces it may have a majority say in whatever type of constitutional changes that come along with it.

Lets make it interesting, I will bet you a beer or a dollar, your choice.

Sorry I forgot to say I was talking about Canada.

and good taste in metal!

I mean, who else on earth sounds like this, they're lime Midnight Oil and Killing Joke and Sabbath all jamming together and tearing it up in the outback

Did you know the singer from Midnight Oil was the Minister for the environment until he had a recent shift to the Education I believe.

Midnight Oil - Blue Sky Mine

Midnight Oil - Beds Are Burning

We know, we know, we know ;-)

I'm warming up to buy a "new" GTO at some point, and I think the first thing I'll do is shave the emblems off and rebadge it back as a Holden Monaro. I'm buying it because Holden knows how to make a new muscle car that isn't expensive and kicks ass, and it's sort of the best of all worlds, it's an awesome import that rocks a 400hp Vette engine and is easy to fix.

Holden got more bhp than the americans from the american engine :-p

It looks like a Beamer 3 Series.

re: #175 prairiefire

looks vastly better than the current 3series ;p

Its actually bigger than the 5 series, I'm guessing there, but I bet it is.

The Monaro is a two door version of our four door Commodore.

The Commodore has always been the family sedan for Mum, Dad and three kids.

The Monaro would not be much shorter, I would guess 8 inches.
It's defiantly by Australia's standards a large car.

I want another nice 5 series, for the luxury, probably 3.5 litre, with the leathe and timber.

Would be magic with a five speed.

At the end of the video, some guys are putting up a goal at one end of the floor. I can't imagine what was coming up after that biking exhibition.

A lady friend of mine suggested that they were the halftime entertainment at some indoor sporting event, that's why they were putting the goal back.
