why is keeping the grass short so pricey,american clubs pay their grass staff no better than the ones in europe. one of the reasons,even though i have been begged to,that i refuse to work on golf clubs is that although they take it vast amounts of cash from usless thieving members,very little of it ever seems to trickle down to the poor sods who make the stupid game possible in the first place,and they are such a bunch of whingeing gits golf players,that i would probably be sacked very quickly for pointing out a few "personality" problems to members....

i am afraid i would not believe anything ever said by any russian ever. you ask the question of. who else benefits. MOSSAD and ISRAEL. who are the the most needful of the worlds attention being pulled/pushed elsewhere ? the jews always like another big world story to pull trouble of them,go back through recent history and most times,when the jews are busy caysing attrocities in others countries,again,you will very often find something else soon pulls the world and especialy,american eyes and ears to somewhere else. is built in survival technique for jews,genetic liars,proven many many times,often with american help,to have been behind some strange/strangely timed events,years later,we get cinfirmation

typical greedy,fat,stupid,short-term,yankee morons,showing once again the wonderful thinking that allows the rest of the world to shit on america and americans because they deserve no better treatment. i bet i can guess very accurately exactly what the use of "sonic cannons" will be,the same as we can "guess" exactly what would have happened if a yankee moron had managed to "accidently" release live smallpox into a population. i dont know what tbe precise term would be,but the rest of us need an americademic event that wipes them off the face of the planet to a person,the rest of the world would be in such a far,far safer/better position without one live yankee on the planet. hitch hikers guide to galaxy got it wrong with the A - B -C class of ark's,D would have been needed for the yankee portion of the population. when everything is dead and gone,then the idiot yanks will possibly think that their "way" may not have been the best to live by. fingers crossed,the next f... up at somewhere like cdc atlanta is discoveted too late to save america,but gives the rest of time to lock them all in america and we can watch them die and tear each other to bits. they would not be missed,short or long term and planet earth might just keep us alive for a few more generations if the rest of work hard at correcting everything the yanks have been so keen at telling us they are doing and seem so proud of. but then if your only going to see what you wish to,everything looks briliant,no matter that you ate to die in five minutes time

too late, the bbc in the uk already do. thats why they rarely allow comment on their own sites, and force folk to comment through, bbc can then claim that their not responsible for comments then,and if they do allow comments on a bbc page, they run such a harsh censorship system that you cannot say anything a bit iffy without said comment being quickly removed.... mealy mouthed bunch of bastards at the bbc....

ha ha ha. cos of course all you smart arse i.t ers maybe smart in some ways, but in others you are as thick as s..t, you had all the evidence/clues in front of you, yet you blundered on regardless, spouting crap to clients and the public, who unfortuanely believed you, there is no such thing as secure computing or communication, what one group of people can engineer/design/build another group can find away through/round. some of us never believed the hype, so are totaly unsuprised that so called security has collapsed around yer ears. i take absolute minimum precautions for security,and have the added bonus of being so poor that i have nothing anywhere to be stolen, and have had spooks keeping an eye on me on and off for most of my life, i have very little idea why folk would bother with such a waste of time and money, you would have to ask the british government, i have a few ideas, but most folk would tell me that i am paranoid or mad, but if you know you are being watched, then off course you will sound paranoid, but like a y organisation/individual, they make mistakes, some times huge great howlers that confirm to yourself and others that something is obviously not right, look at how the fbi just caught the idiot running silk road, using his real name and leaving tracks that a blind man could follow... in the land of the watched, everyone should be paranoid, or just get used to it, which is whats going to happen, folk will just learn to live with being under consta t watch, unless there is going to be a huge uprising in the western world and governments are done away with, which is not going to happen in my life time.... look behind you.....

and exactly what did bb think they could do for operators that they would help/allow bb to cut into the cash cow that was/is sms ? bbm is now being allowed to be rolled out on mobiles because so few folk use it, the figures folk quote for the numbers of bbm users are about as believable as samsung claiming 100 million users of its message system, ask all your friends and see if you can find one user, i cant find one nor can my young daughter find one of her mates who use either samsung or bbm still.

well said. very soon it will be a hanging offence in the western world if you dare to hint at the fact that your not pro gay. i want to know who the group of powerful folk are that are pushing gay rights so hard ? there has been a huge turn around in the law and supposedly in public opinion in the last 3-4 years, someone very powerful is using their influence. fingers crossed another gay killer discease comes along soon or a revolution/civil war, then we may see how many members of the public realy agree that gays are ok or they may just be some of the first victims, but you can guarentee they will all be hiding behind locked doors in their homes.

but of course the bbc will kill it off, no matter what the publc say. the bbc have taken off air every program, documentary, discussion, anything that needs an iq larger than folks shoe size. name me one documentary left on the bbc, and if you can, i bet its been dumbed down to the point of not being worth viewing. they are meant to broadcast educational programs as part of their charter, same charter also says they are not meant to be involved in ratings battles. but since when has the bbc been interested in following its charter. and can we guess what load of old crud will be put on instead ?.

because they dont know what else to do. the new one's will do as well as the first. the rt because its a stupid idea, badly carried out and the pro's are just too pricey, their not far of apple prices, and for the same kind of price you can buy very good laptops or netbooks. ms still have'nt a clue outside of x-box, 8/8.1 are turning into a bit of a disaster, most folk i know are retro gradeing to win 7. i still say that if ms want to win some customers and possibly some friends, extend / bring back support for xp for another year and do a proper cheap deal for those moving on from xp, how about win 7 for £50 if you prove your xp is legal, or win 7 pro/ultimate for £75.
