  4. Breakofdawning-I've heard its a great movie and I'll definitely go and see it. I saw "Up" in 3D recently and it was great so i'll be trying it in that - but I don't agree with all of your comments on war. yes there have been a lot of colonising wars and greed, but I think we have moved on (largely) since 1945. I served in Iraq a few times and I can honestly say people there were not being killed. The War started for the safety of the way of life of the majority of the world. These counries (Iraq&Afghanistan) were sponsoring terrorism around the world which was killing innocent people or making them nervous in their daily lives. There were not many innocent people killed in either country, as far as I'm aware. There were many, many people killed there by the insurgents we were fighting, but that's the inherant problem with those cultures. The dysfunctional politics there result in groups "cleansing" or murdering to strengthen their own position through fear. Our involvment on both countries has done nothing more than expose the problems that are already there. Ask an Afghan girl who now has the opportunity to go to school or women who now have the right to an opinion whether they are better or worse off under the, admittedly instable, regime now in place after our intervention. The murders in Iraq cae because we could not enforce a viable and coherent security infranstructure in Iraq....but that was largely because the Iraqi Police and Army are so openly corrupt and not only turn a blind eye to the atrocities, but actively engage in them themselves. Barrack Obama did not start either conflict and stated his intention to end them both upon his appointment. The reality is we're trapped into trying to help these people now. if we leave there will be civil war. Our presence reinforces a fragile and often broken peace. But it is better than the oppressive, violent and brutish regime that was there before we went in. Sorry if that seems like a rant - it's not meant to be. But I believe absolutely that we did the right thing in intervening. The only injustice or morally wrong aspect is that the politicans ignore some problems and intervene in others, for example if oil is involved. but we can't fight all of the world's probles for it. There are plenty of countries who did nothing and a lot of other countries are not able to help, or indeed need help, because of greed within their own society - which leaves them weak and unstable. The political system in the west may not be perfect, but it's better than the corrupt political systems of the Arab world and any parts of South America and Asia. I'm in the Army - but that doesnt mean I believe in War. I'd ha;ppily get another job if there was no war....but we are fighting against aggressors with weapons or force who are oppressing the weak. I heard a great quote once which I think applies here, from george Orwell: "We sleep safely at night because rough men stand ready to visit violence on those who would harm us"
  5. Q: Why did God give women orgasms? A: So that even when they're happy they can keep on moaning!
  6. I once read that when you open a bottle of champagne correctly it should sound like the sigh a woman makes when she orgasms. I wouldn't know......I've never heard it!
  7. I used my ex gf's iPhone once and forgot to log out. Later when I was playing games on it I clicked an icon I didnt recognise to see what it was - it was the note taking page....and there were passwords for my email accounts and things. I later found out tat instead of logging out when she saw I was still on hotmail she went through all my emails and got my passwords to spy on me. When I said "OK....you read mine....can I read yours?" she said no. So I asked...."look, I dont speak Thai.....let me just read emails from farang guys in your inbox". "No" she replied. She didnt last much after that. I didnt really want to read her account.....and tbh I didnt think she was cheating on me. But what annoyed me was that she did something to me that she would not tolerate herself. For me you need to have privacy....but privacy does not mean you are doing anything wrong (she obviously didnt find anything wrong in my emails). If u want to spy and cant trust him then he is a brave man who lets you invade in his life like that. And if he does show you....can he read yours too?
