Oooh, two for one, that's so green man. Before long you'll be recycling old threads to avoid creating new ones. It reminds me of the nameless one. Instead of forcing the player to start a new game, they just recycle the character and continue the story from the mortuary.

Haven't seen anything related to warning signs of biohazards or viral alerts or whatever, but there was a short story about a possible waste as the vaccine for H1N1 apparently has to be spend within 24hours or so after it has been prepared or mixed, which could be a bit of a problem as local medics are already pretty stressed out by the daily load of common sickness and trivial diseases. When I go to the doctor I sometimes have 2-3 points of interest, but there's rarely time for more than one.

Even though Obama backs away from the missile shield I don't think the russian interest in South America is going to change.

With the swine full, and the UN and WHO constantly changing their predictions, I'm inclined to think it's largely media hype.

Mind you, we've had some serious global epidemics that killed a lot of people. The Spanish flu in 1918 is estimated to have killed 20-100 million globally. The Asian outbreaks in the late 50s and again in the late 60s didn't reach the same levels.

Time alone will tell what happens with this one.

As for the US and Russia, the sooner they make nice, the sooner they can focus on a joint space program. :wink:

Dangerous stuff that, very dangerous.

I think paedophilia is a cruel crime, but criminalising people expressing their view on the subject (if it's a positive view) is in a way even more disturbing.
No freedom of speech there, no.

This could just as well have been a law saying that if I speak positively about abortion (in a land where it's illegal), I'm up for jail-time. Or hey, why not castrate me so that I can't get pregnant and abort it? Or why not illegalize speaking positively of drugs, they're illegal too...

Just because it's a crime that offends many doesn't mean it's OK to take away the base of democracy - freedom of speech.

Brilliant, bloody brilliant...

And what if a 14 year old pretends to be older online, lets say 20? You'll still get thrown in jail then?
I really hope they have accounted for this in the legislation. But my hopes aren't high...

Freedom of speech only goes so far.

Most countries (justifiably so) have laws criminalising hate speech directed towards race, religion or sexual orientation. How is criminalising public pro-child molestation speech a bad thing? It's certainly not something I want to hear or read about in a positive light.

***

And on a different note:

Really interesting to see Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the US all agreeing on something.

http://www.cbc.ca/world/story/2009/09/2 ... -iran.html

It's rare indeed for Russia and China to agree with the West. They usually oppose just out of habit, if not principle.

Iran is a country I hope have to swollow their own ego's, Aka a nuclear melt down. Teach em not to mess around getting nukes. I am happy to the worlds big nations agree on something.

And I do not see how someone can think positive of child molester. They be safer in jail then outside if they are open with that. Freedom of speech or not, they be beaten up Firstborn.

Like Josan says, then perhaps we should remove the hate crime towards race, sex, religion and sexual orientation aswell?

EDIT: People should have understood the power of the nuke after WWII. We could forbid mustard gas but nuclear weapons, are they even forbidden? Guess not since they are in the arsenal of a lot of nations.

Sweden cancelled their project long ago, but It would not suprise me if a halfly made bomb or similar lays well hidden deep down in the vaults of Swedish secrets.
