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.

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 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.
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.
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.
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.

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

It'll even out - as we go, the teams with relatively few medals will clump together at the base of the table, while nations like the US, China, GB Germany, France, Australia and South Korea will make their moves toward the top.
I don't see any events coming up where team germany really has a chance to grab the gold medal. Silver for Lilli Schwarzkopf was a huge surprise in Heptathlon. I was hoping for a gold medal in discus, but the best german lady only ranked 5th. Now let's hope for hammer throw and men's discus throw...
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
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 about 90kg, the girls should have a few more problems with that weight. :P
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!

Five? That's more than I've done since the start of the decade. :P

Maybe you should just start reviewing again? :P

I'm... not so sure myself. I'll have to see what Luis says at the end of the month. I expect to hear something by then.
Well, I first have to finish my studies, then I have to find a job. Once I got my first paycheck, it should be enough for a short trip to London, though.
So not anytime soon then.

I don't think so. :(

And we seem to have a sunny week. I dreamt last night that it was snowing in August. I'm sure it will happen eventually. :P
Snow in August? Yeah, if you are in the southern hemisphere, this should be quite comon. :P

I really don't know what to think of "global warming". I mean, it sure has been warmer at some time, since the vikings discovered "Greenland" at some point, which now is largely covered with ice.

Both teams registered wins today and I think that we just took massive steps toward promotion. My liver is not is bad shape, since I had to drive when we got back, which I wasn't happy about.

Still, good to get back to winning ways. Now to report it on the official channels.

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.

The human brain is good in denying unpleasant things.

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.

As far as I know, they get told every time that they can be happy to live there and that the rest of the world is a hell hole. I don't know, but I think if I was told the same thing over and over again, I just might start to believe it.

11 gold (thanks to Field Hockey) to 13 south korean gold. Close, but not good enough.
However, 44 medals in total is NOT even close to what was expected from official side: 80 medals+. LOL!

Coop gets back to work in a very untidy office. Congratulations to:

I wouldn't call it a flute - they have the capability of playing more than one note, after all.

I think, the brainwashing just works better in North Korea.
"Thank you. It was cold down there on the floor..."
The human brain is good in denying unpleasant things.

Or things that just can't be believeable

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.
As far as I know, they get told every time that they can be happy to live there and that the rest of the world is a hell hole. I don't know, but I think if I was told the same thing over and over again, I just might start to believe it.

Tell yourself a lie often enough and you'll believe it to be true.

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!

I was thoroughly impressed with team GB's performance in the Olympics, from the athletes themselves, to the behind the scenes crew, which made this a very successful and enjoyable games.

Are the Olympics over and done with already? If so, good! I'm glad the burden is put behind us all now.

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.

Can't say I like Status Quo all that much. They only have a few standout songs and the rest is highly forgettable and even now they're still recording new albums. AC/DC may fall to repetition but they at least were able to write a fair amount of good tunes.

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!

I even listened to the new Muse song. I guess I'll have to write them off now as they couldn't hold out much with The Resistance and it doesn't look like they'll do well here either. I really hate the popularity of dubstep. It's a genre with very little innovation that was blown out of proportion. This genre is certainly nothing like prog rock that still lives today in various forms.

Eh, quality over quantity.
My news posts of late have hardly been of quality - I just write a lot of words, that make vague sense.

I have an idea for another post later on so stay tuned.

I've been there myself. Not reviewing anything because I didn't feel like it. At the same time I was telling myself that, I "didn't have the time", when in reality, all I did was sitting in front of the PC, not doing anything. >_>

I have loads of free time but I spend it all just lazing around on the laptop. I should earn medals on here, I should make more icons but nope, all I'm doing is being a lazy fuck. I suppose video games and TV are great ways to make yourself lazy.

You can go ahead and piss whoever off, I have other things to worry about.
On the other hand, it may not be a smart move to piss of a dragon.

No fucking shit, Sherlock!

It was one of the few things that I disliked about the Olympics. Their song "Now you're a winner", or whatever bollocks it was called kept getting played, despite the fact that it's the same as most of their other works and therefore as deserving of airtime, i.e. as little as possible.

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!

They're certainly an alternative band, but even I don't agree with their ideas about Dubstep and Metal.

Ok, I don't, so there's little point in reading mine...

I must have played for all of an hour on Sunday, when usually, if there is no cricket, I'll play for 5-6 hours.
