Comment Moon Treaty (Score 1) 144

Article 11, paragraph 2 of the Moon Treaty states:
"The moon is not subject to national appropriation by any claim of sovereignty, by means of use or occupation, or by any other means."
Of course, England hasn't signed or ratified the Moon Treaty, so it all kinda depends on the international reaction whether or not his claim is valid.

A lot of todays "young people" somehow find classical music boring. This, I do not understand. Boring is listening to the exact same riff or chord over and over and over throughout an entire song without any variation. Classical music might do the same theme many times throughout a piece, but it's usually varied every time. Bach, for example, would take one theme and vary it a step at a time until it turned into a completely different theme.
