Re: Yes it really happened

Just think a bit of common sense if England had annexed 20% of their country and given it to the Jews then Palestine could have got their land back and bobs your uncle. But the British colonialists would never give their own land. I have read that China has the biggest farm. Maybe not cattle and she...

Re: Dreams and Ancient Beliefs

We relocated the resident ghost on our land prior to commencing building. He was in a tree which was to be dug up and removed, it had a reasonable sized termite mound at the base. Was a reasonable ceremony from the local specialists to achieve this move and far as I know he is now happy in the front...

Re: Chinese Communist Economy and Society

Maybe the Chinese are reading this UM thread and not appreciating what they read and now voting with their feet, or lack of feet on the ground in Thailand. I was in Beijing airport waiting for my usual crowded 7.30pm flight to bkk. Reading this thread while Sitting in the quiet of the Air china loun...

Re: Great Old Movies on YouTube

Not sure how far back the actual start year would apply, but around '74 there was a movie called "Alvin Purple" and "Alvin Rides Again". Shows the true culture of Australia at the time.

Re: Ceiling - gypsum sheet thickness

Now that's a very comprehensive report from laksnrub, all good info by the way. My personal experience when building was, as mentioned by laksnrub, to use a good experienced installer. Levels, cracking etc will create unwanted problems down the track. We have gyproc walls and ceilings throughout the...

Re: ClimateGate busts things wide open

Have any of scientific brainiac's performed a calculation of how much the sea floor is being filled in by the unseen undersea volcanic activity? Perhaps this lava outpouring, if any, is causing displacement and flooding the shore lines, and not the melting ice sheets. Just coming from another persp...

Re: Chinese Communist Economy and Society

Maybe the Chinese didn’t build that rail line into Tibet just for tourists?
Imagine how fast they can mobilise troops with all their high speed trains into other countries. Straight to Singapore with a quick toilet break in bangkok. Nah couldn’t happen.

Very quickly as usual for a topic to head off in another direction.
Unless the new eatery of the topic heading is in the Tops miss mash of aisles?
