Re: I like this forum

This is a grace. Every forum changes it's face every now and then, depending on the style and attitude of the peop...

Re: Whaaaaats Going On..?

Yes, my brother who lives in Stockholm reports that the winters became much warmer there. There's no really cold and long winter anymore. In my area (Northern Germany) the summers are wetter or way hotter (depends) and the winters are colder. Maybe this is connected to the sea somehow that brings ou...

Re: When you first started... (lightweight question)

Drinks hotter than 70°C can cause cancer, some sientists found out. This is the point of temperature when the bubbling has stopped fully. But in a lower temperature than "boiling", hot water is very healthy. It serves as an internal shower and cleanses the digestive system. It sounds strange that s...

Re: Giving Up Sugar and Junk Food

Sugar is a bit like a drug. So, the good news is: the less you eat it the smaller becomes the appetite for sugar. If you eat none, then there is no desire also. But how to get there is another question. Everybody is his own child. One can find out the best ploys that work for oneself by oneself. :sm...

Re: sexual harrassment & sexual assault in the US

... Europe doesn't seem to have this problem. Maybe the puritan backround isn't that strong in Europe but it exists. And for sure we have sexual harrassment in all those forms. In my view, the me-too-campaign is a sign of progress in the USA while in Europe (most parts) we're still waiting for some...

Re: The Only Capitol of Israel

I'm not following this story in the news, so I have no sage comments to offer, only a question - Why does Trump get to tell another country where their capital should be? I really don't get this. There's obviously a long game here - what is it? Well, the "advantage" is that there will be war immedi...

Re: sexual harrassment & sexual assault in the US

Theres two types of people in the world, perverts and perverts that get caught out. Sorry it's just a condition of being human. Everyone has there little secrets and if you don't I would say your a liar. I think, I like better the "perverts that don't get caught", because most probably they have le...
