the whole world is, assuming "'woohoo'ing" means cheering.

deep thought: Cedric should empty his inbox if he wants people to reply to his PMs.

My town hasn't rained for three weeks although the wind's blowing like a don't-know-what.

In the Netherlands we've just gotten out of a 2 week frost. I think avarage day temperatures were around -5 degrees Celsius and at night about -10 to -15 degrees Celsius. I went skating on natural ice on 31 December.

Celsius isn't metric. Kelvin is the official metric unit for temperature. Granted, it has the exact same scale as Celsius, only with 0 Kelvin being -278 degrees Celsius.
I would also like to note that it is illegal to use non-metric units in science or for commercial purposes. There are some exceptions, like Celsius or lightyears, but Fahrenheit, yards or pounds are all illegal to use.

And supposedly, when Congress estimated that it would take some millions of dollars to do it, they rejected the idea. but then they ended up giving billions to the banks as a bailout. It really makes you think who's more important to Congress. the banks or the people?


The banks are more important. If the banks all went bankrupt, pretty much all the money the US had would dissapear which in turn would cause the US to go bankrupt and half the planet to go bankrupt. If the US wouldn't have given billions to the banks, there wouldn't have been any money left to go to social care.
Not to mention that a government giving money to public domain, such as banks, is pretty damned socialistic. It is bordering communist. And didn't the US also buy a part of the banks? This action is more communist than kapitalist.

Here in the Netherlands we have more political parties than you can count.
We have:
CDA, a mild Christian party which got formed from three smaller Christian parties back in the eighties. They aren't socialist, they aren't kapitalist, they aren't conversative, the aren't progressive, they are barely Christian anymore. They are balanced in every political sense.
PvdA, a mild socialist party. They are left but only slightly.
SP, the most socialist and progressive large party in the Netherlands.
GL, a green socialist party which mainly propagandises a healthy nature.
CU, a conversative Christian party who want to lead the country according to the bible.
D'66, the largest conservative party. Althought the D stands for Democrats, compared to the other Dutch parties they are more like the Republics. Even though they are still more progressive than the American Democrats, but that is just because politics in the US has never gotten out of the 17th century.
LPF, the party founded by Pim Fortuyn. Fortuyn was a member of D'66 whos propaganda was based around stronger immigration laws and getting all immigrants out of the Netherlands. He didn't get the support he wanted in D'66 and founded his own party. He was killed by an animal rights activist back in 2004 I think.
PVV, the party founded by Geert Wilders, who directed Fitna. He was a member of D'66 just like Fortuyn and also didn't get the support he wanted. He also wanted better immigration laws, although his campaign was directed against Muslims.
PvdD, a party whose only concern is animal rights. They are surprisingly big.

We also have many small parties, like the Communist party or the Muslim party, but they are too small to ever hold a position in the government.

During the late nineteenth century, Sweden was a very poor country. Loads of people went to the big land in the West, in search of freedom, but mostly money. People reported about things unknown to mankind (mankind in Sweden, that is ).

Nowadays, US gets loads of attention in the news. Every new invention comes from either Sweden (because the Swedish media of course hypes everything Swedish) or USA, sometimes Japan. All brand-new technology is developed and released in the USA, often never even crossing the ocean to be released in Europe.

Everyone in Sweden, except for some of the ones who has been there and the communists, thinks that USA is fabulous. This is all medias fault.

It turns out I made one mistake in my description of the Dutch political parties. I got D'66 and VVD mixed up. Pretty much everything I said about D'66 applies to VVD and both Fortuyn and Wilders used to be members of the VVD. But the two are somewhat similar. VVD is somewhat more conservative than D'66 and is more concerned about immigration, but other than that they are pretty similar.

I was on vacation in the US during 'Fall Break'. We flied to NJ and stayed there for 4 days, but we spent most of the time in southern Manhattan. Then, we drove down to Wisconsin in Delaware and stayed there for two nights. Me and my dad went on a one-day trip to Washington DC during that stay.

After that we drove back to NJ and Newark, and flied down to S:t Petersburg, close to Tampa, in Florida, and stayed there for 4 days before going to Orlando and staying there for yet another three days.

We visited a total of 7 states, and saw cars from 37 different states, not including the cars from Ontario

But also:

Do not watch videos made by Livio because they are videos of the inside of a closed box.

Deep thoughts?

Have you guys ever considered that you're just one spec of dust in the ocean of history of this world? You're not that important.

I told you that, and nobody believed me until you checked all of your IP bans...you said you removed all of them but shos still couldn't get online! So I told you he was still IP banned and you laugh a little at me for being silly, then it turns out that Livio left one IP banned...the one shos used, and uses.
