Notre Prochaine Destination! :-D

On va bien s'amuser! :-D

It's a most welcome change. Despite the pressure on the newest president of the most powerful (or at least the "loudest") nation in the world, I frankly believe that few people would do a worst job than GWB. Whatever Barack Obama does is better for sure!

I wonder if Americans are getting less stupid. The world paid an horrible price for their stupidity for the last 8 years.

It's not fresh news that China is:
  • a) a dictatorship
  • b) there is no freedom of press
  • c) there's no freedom of information
  • d) there have always been attempts on human rights (if nothing else, the notorious questions with girls orphanages)
  • e) also the Dalai Lama is out of Tibet for "some reason", right?
Having all that said, China was awarded the event nonetheless. For nothing else, at least because of the symbolism of the Truce. Athenas and Sparta were constantly at war but all retaliations stopped during the games. Under Hitler's rule nations went with their athletes.
Now Tibet is in uproar. UN won't go there because it's Mighty China. No-one will go there.
But imagine you are a high competition athlete. You may not agree with it. But your goals have been set to "that country". What are you to do? Throw your last 4, 6, 8 years or more of preparation out the window?
It's up to the Government to take diplomatic action. Boycott the ceremonies? Why not? Because of Tibet at least. Everyone saw the Journalists at the Lighting of the Olympic flame but not the Chinese. Maybe they'll see it here.

Repent from riches or Hell awaits!

Last week, during a seminar for priest, to update on the new trends of church, new Mortal Sins were added to the list.
As stated in Wikipedia:

Twenty-first century sins

In March of 2008, Archbishop Gianfranco Girotti listed seven new mortal sins:[

  • Environmental pollution
  • Genetic manipulation
  • Accumulating excessive wealth
  • Inflicting poverty
  • Drug trafficking and consumption
  • Morally debatable experiments
  • Violation of fundamental rights of human nature

Accumulating excessive wealth....
Will the Vaticam "repent"?

By the way, the last one, as stated by Archbishop Gianfranco Girotti, include rape and paedophilia.

PS - for you unbelivers that don't know or don't remember (or haven't seen the Magnum icecream campaign of 2006), the "old" and still rulling sins are:

Oh, they do that in Europe, do they?

True story, a few days ago:

Where: NatWest (it's a bank) in New Bridge Street (in the CITY, of all places), London, UK:

"So, is it true that it is not possible to transfer money online to other countries?
Yes, I'm afraid it is, for international transfers you need to come to the branch (Monday to Friday, 9 am to 5 pm) and fill in a paper form. Alternatively, you can call your Private Banking team (side comment: slightly better timings, I found out: Monday to Friday from 8am to 6 pm... - does that sound like working and commuting time to you? To me it does...)

What about SEPA?

The European Payment System?....
Not sure what that is...


But why can't it be done online, it is possible in Switzerland, Netherlands, Portugal, in any simple bank account?
Oh, they do that in Europe, do they?

50 to 100:You're in the ranks of Sir Mix-a-Lot. But since we've been forced to lower our standards, you'll probably do okay.

Less than 50:Dick.
