    Yeah but in a few billion years the sun will expand, and then collapse so really it is all about timing...:)

    @Farley2k True! I find it quite liberating to think that when that time comes, all those molecules that made up you, me and the entirety of every last thing that has ever existed on Earth, will be scattered randomly into the void of space. We'll all be stardust.

    Well I started reading up on ww2 simply via wikipedia to start with, but I had gaps in my knowledge that was doing my head in, so I went back to read up on how ww1 started and ended and then that led to ww2. But then I started reading up on the nazi party during the early 1930's started. It was such a huge subject with tons of info, which branched out into Fascism, Marxism and Communism which took fucking ages! So I thought I'd start watching it as well. A friend of mine of German descent lent me the Nazis: A warning from history dvd which was truly fascinating and extremely upsetting at the same time. From that, I bought the Shoah box set by Linzemann (haven't got round to that yet - there is over 1000 minutes worth in that lot), the Auschwitz Final Solution DVD and book, the doctors eyewitness account of Auschwitz by Miklos Nyiszli (Dr Mengele's assistant), and 5 Chimneys (Olga Lengyel's surviving account).

    As you can see, I'm mainly focused on Auschwitz itself from initially visiting the place, but to fully understand it all, I had to go right back to pre WW1 to get all the information in my head in the right order, and understand it along the way. Once I have got through it all, I'm planning another visit to Krakow again I think, as I didn't really comprehend the first time round all the factors. (which is one of the reasons I've been meaning to research it more)

    I'm rusty with general politics at the best of times, but this really made me sit down and just re-learn the whole she-bang. I have to be careful though - as because I'm constantly reading this type of stuff - I have to make sure my comments aren't swung because of what I'm researching. Sometimes difficult to resist to want to kill the horrible cunt that Trump is/is becoming :)
    I recommend you read the Road to Surfdom written in 1943 which basically warns fascism and socialism lead to totalitarianism. You could argue that popularism is the new fascism with leaders like Trump, Rodrigo Duterte, Putin. On the flip side kim jong un Nicolás Maduro and Xi Jinping are the new socialist side. Everyone is in their camps these days more partisan and entrenched.

    @melonfarmer Interesting, where did you copy and paste that from?

    I don't think you've read that book. In fact, I don't think you've read any book.

    He puts his *country* and his family first. Cohen also claims that the Mueller investigation should not be called a witch hunt, that Russia's meddling in the election was bad and that Putin's denial can't be taken at face value.

    Either he's bitter, angry and will say anything to lash out at his former employer, or this has the potential to be even more delicious than that.


    If Mueller could tear Trump down before he can nominate a new Supreme Court justice, than that would be lovely.
    Illegitimate presidents shouldn't be able to pick the jury when they stand trial for high treason.

    Well, at the very least he negotiated peace in East Asi- wait, what? He's already moved onto the next thing, and the North Koreans are ramping up nuclear fuel production?

    Well... uh, at least he's not threatening them over Twitter anymore? Right now?

    Now that Harley-Davidson is moving part of its operation out of the U.S., my Administration is working with other Motor Cycle companies who want to move into the U.S. Harley customers are not happy with their move - sales are down 7% in 2017. The U.S. is where the Action is!
    People don't like HD's decision, so they buy fewer Harleys in 2017 now? Right...

    Some Classic Trump from 2016 for you to chill out to.

    I saw it on reddit yesterday but I still can't quite believe that it's a real thing that the PotUSA has actually said. It's mind melting.

    The Trump balloon gets the go ahead:

    'Campaign groups and trade unions have organised a schedule of protests to follow Donald Trump on his visit to the UK next week, including a six metre angry baby balloon that will fly over Westminster from Parliament Square.'

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/jul/05/donald-trump-to-be-met-by-protests-at-each-stage-of-uk-visit

    there's various protest marches too.

    Watch the video to see the balloon in all of its nappy-wearing glory. :)

    Pruitt resigned. Here is some of his resignation letter:

    My desire in service to you has always been to bless you as you make important decisions for the American people. I believe you are serving as President today because of God’s providence. I believe that same providence brought me into your service. I pray as I have served you that I have blessed you and enabled you to effectively lead the American people. Thank you again Mr. President for the honor of serving you and I wish you Godspeed in all that you put your hand to.


    evangelicals are weird.

    Apparently his replacement is just as big a cunt, only apparently even more devious.

    What's the point in pissing him off though?

    I like it, it makes me feel warm and fuzzy in the same way that that guy flying a sandwich up to David Blaine did.

    Someone followed Trump around playing a tuba the last time he was here. It was good.

    Trump sending Kim a copy of Rocketman on CD is tragically small time trolling and his fans are going to absolutely love him for it.

    Also Trump reportedly signing it himself because he's Biff Tannen levels of pathetic.
