Re: Hong Kong: Protestors fire arrows

News coverage I saw, the arrows were target points. Wonder if that was a choice, or if that's all they have access to?

Re: Nov 14th - "AndyC" a US Citizen

My 10th grade history teacher had an analogy that went something like; A monarchy is like a ship of the line that sails majestically on until it strikes a reef and goes down with all hands. A democracy is like a raft. You never sink, but your feet are always wet. Wecome to the raft, mate! Hope you b...

Re: Global Warming/Global Cooling/Climate Change

There was a story related to me in Medieval History class in, I think, junior high.
