I mostly knew Cold Sweat from Helloween's cover. Must have listened to that to death but same goes for everything else they've done.

I prefer Cold Sweat, or Out in the Fields, but that is one of their best.

Thin Lizzy - Thunder & Lightning
There is a very distinctive sound for the pieces by Thin Lizzy, but the same can be said for bands like Status Quo, AC/DC and so forth. I'm not sure it hurts them, though.
Also, what do you make of Muse saying that Dubstep is the new Metal? I couldn't resist giving this hornet's nest a kick!
Eh, quality over quantity.
I may be a BBS mod as well as user of the year but that doesn't give me enough comments on my posts.No, I meant that you post more News Posts than I do.
My news posts of late have hardly been of quality - I just write a lot of words, that make vague sense.

I think, the brainwashing just works better in North Korea.

Close parallels, but I think that the North Koreans have been oppressed for longer and more harshly than East Germany was. They both existed before the partition of Germany and still exist today, while Germany was reunited in emotional scenes in the aftermath of November 9th, 1989.

Yeah, I guess they where still fed up with all those pictures of Adolf, that where about everywhere, so it wouldn't have been a smart move to tell people to put up pictures of the socialist party. But I'm pretty sure that pictures of Ulbricht and Honecker where on display in public buildings.

Even more harsh? I can't imagine how this should be possible. As far as I know, there was only one brand for each product in the GDR, and commercials wheren't allowed.I don't recall people having to show massive outpourings of public grief, when the leader of the GDR passed away, or that everyone had to display a picture of their Eternal Leader, or Beloved Leader in their homes. Still, I've lived in neither, so would only know from what i have seen from biased news reports.
I once read that people bought many many tooh brushes, when there where rumours that the only factory that produced them was about to be closed down.
"Thank you. It was cold down there on the floor..."
The people of East Germany needed about 40 years to finally stand up and protest against their government, which is quite a long time. But we don't know too much about the situation in North Korea... maybe people there are happy there? Who knows.
I doubt that they are happier - the country isn't prosperous and the people have suffered for years, due to the meddling of the international community, much as the situation with East / West Germany and the Middle East has.
I'm about 90kg, the girls should have a few more problems with that weight. :P
58kg... that's just a shade over 9 stone. I am 10.5 stone (66.8kg) and struggle to press that weight above my head. These girls can do that with ease. Hell, they probably press more as a warm up.
I'm looking forward to the ladies' hammer throw, as the British entrant is a former ballerina and she actually looks quite attractive... for a hammer throwing woman.I was watching women's weight lifting (because gymnastics where on at th eother TV station). Weight category: 58kg. Those women looked very petite, but I don't think I could lift as much weight as they did. :o
Anyway, Team Germany now has 10 Gold medals and is 6th in the medal count. Not too bad. "Only" 2 more gold and they can pass South Korea!
Well, at getting on for 4pm, it's looking difficult for you now. We've just won gold number 29 and we might have a shot at number 30 in the Modern Pentathlon later on.

Still, good to get back to winning ways. Now to report it on the official channels.Busy day for you, yes? I always like it when my day has a full schedule ahead. Just means there's a lot of stuff to do.
Well, I've got so much writing to do that I'm not even considering Lord of the Rings Online, or Borderlands... yet.
