Sitting here watching people who think they can call the Scotland vote based on results from three electorates. Guys. That’d be like the US calling an election based on the results from Rhode Island, and only Rhode Island.
You all just started counting.
Great answer to those wondering if the Scottish Independence movement has a chance!
I have this weird feeling that I’m about to witness something I’ve only seen in SciFi films & shows…
"Russia will counter military moves by the U.S. At the same time, he emphasized that Russia will not enter a new arms race and will tightly control its military budget to avoid overburdening the economy. Putin’s emphasis on high-precision conventional weapons reflected government concerns about the U.S."
So basically Russian nukes are a 100 times more powerful than the ones the US dropped upon Japan in World War 2.
I suspect America has similar weapons, although the last thing we need is for Russia & America to test nuclear devastation against each other.
"Russia carried out a successful test of its new Bulava intercontinental nuclear missile on Wednesday and will perform two more test launches in October and November, the head of its naval forces said."
All day I’ve looked forward to watching the Apple Event live stream while sipping a nice Scotch. At least I’ve been able to enjoy the Scotch. I also may be learning a bit of Mandarin when the stream connects for a second.
Described my day perfectly (minus the scotch!).
Fortunately enough geeks tweeted/live blogged the event to make it awesome for me!
Tom Brady has a new injury‽ I guess he will not be moving out of his pocket anytime soon!
"Out of nowhere Thursday, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady showed up on the team’s injury report with some kind of calf injury. It’s the sort of thing to anyone rooting for the Pats or just Brady into a weird, mental place. Fret not — Brady says he’ll "be ready to go Sunday.""
“And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hands.”—David (as a youth) speaking to Goliath of Gath (1 Samuel 17:47)
So I guess we all know what nations Russia will soon test next…
"President Barack Obama’s message to Russian President Vladimir Putin when traveling to Europe next week is to not "even think about messing around" with the Baltic states, the White House said Friday. Obama is traveling to Europe next week for a meeting in Wales with other NATO leaders."
Suing is a bit extreme for me but I should consider this next time a random loan shark calls demanding money I never borrowed in the first place! (as there are apparently many people with my name sadly)
"Kevin Jones just did what he felt was right, but you might think of him as a hero once you hear his story. When Jones was hassled by debt collectors to pay a bill he didn’t owe, he did more than tell them to get lost. Paperwork is also critical for consumers who send payments to debt collection companies."
