I sent you an e-mail, hope it has arrived. Great to see you back on this site !
Getting down to the nitty gritty: Ant's, yes I can see and understand your logic. Yes you lucky b......'s who got out to HK, whilst some of us had to hold back a hoard of Jock's in Tidworth, don't remember having any problems with sunburn there. That, HK, was the only posting that I was ever envious of
Ants are brilliant, as are termites. The underground city in Turkey resembles a termites mound, with the exception that it's underground as opposed to the mound being largely above ground. Termites use the wind in the same way that the underground city used the water, to cause suction, to ventilate and so make life possible deep inside the building-complex. By constantly raising and lowering their chimney-stacks termites adjust the airflow and so acclimatize, very accurately, the temperatures and air content, using the specific weight of certain gasses and over-flows, like a dam, to achieve the required gas concentrations. (They don't just use air in the simple way that we do). Bees do much the same inside their hives (if the bee-keeper allows them to that is). One should not underestimate the collective genius of the little people, ants, termites, bees or the Chinese !
While America and Europe have been trying to bomb the world into submission the Chinese have been giving financial support to many countries, especially in Africa, and elsewhere just buying up great swathes of ultra valuable properties world wide. Were they to suddenly sell their properties they could cause the total collapse of the western financial system and we would be fucked, no need for endless wars ! Like ants, termites and bees, the Chinese function 'for the benefit of the whole' and accept personal losses as their fate, something that we in the western world seem unable to accept.
Merkel, Europe, is disgusted that Turkey wants to reintroduce the death sentence and with her other ultra European fanatics
want to try to give Turkey a hard time because of it. Now let's take a case in point: The guy, in the USA, that recently posted on facebook his execution of an entirely innocent old man who was just walking down the street and also claimed to have killed many others. Had he not later killed himself, had he been caught the USA, Europe, the western world would have spent many millions of dollars, euro's pounds, catching and prosecuting him, and he would have got a life sentence, and he would appeal, and he would be psychologically studied by a dozen idiot doctors, and he could have lived to become 80++ and then get released, because he would, presumably, no longer be a danger to the public and he would get a free flat and a social worker to feed him and wipe his arse etc. etc. etc.. In China they would have had a five minute process and spent 5 x 30 pence on bullets and ended the saga there and then.
To free the world of dangerous scum, for the benefit of all (financial savings, safety for the public and the police, leaving doctors and social workers free to help the public instead of helping evil-nut-cases) is much cleverer !
My God, in America they have just spent millions trying to stop the authorities from using an 'almost out of date drug' to execute several EVIL prisoners, who have been on 'death row' for decades, it's an utterly perverted logic !
Would the out of date drugs have made the dead man poorly ? Who needs drugs anyway ? Just pump 2 liters of air into his veins and he's dead in seconds, cost 1 used needle and a reusable bicycle pump
My point is, everyone is moaning that we need more money for education, the NHS, pensioners, the police, the army, road repairs etc. etc. but we have to respect the so called 'human rights' of murdering scum and perverts. Well children you will just have to make up your minds, execute the baddies or have ever longer waiting lists for everyone and everything. And while we struggle with our consciences the Chinese are racing ahead
