Re: A380 emergency landing in Singapore after engine failure

I don't get Fox -- haven't watched it in four years. And I realize BBC is nothing more than condescending garbage packaged for thin-skinned, easily hurt Brittles. I don't watch it either. Don't watch much news on television. I can do without the poorly concealed biases. Your trusty, tired, old clich...

Re: A380 emergency landing in Singapore after engine failure

Hi, Maybe Tex., with your superior knowledge, could tell us why it happened. Inferior, shabbily produced product. Could you help BA out with this or are you just bullsh*ting. LOLZ...

Re: A380 emergency landing in Singapore after engine failure

The Airbus was only half full. Wouldn't two engines suffice? A spokesman for Rolls-Royce, the British firm which made the engines, told Dow Jones Newswires that it would "work with Qantas to identify what the problem is". I think I can help them out: "One of the engines exploded and rained down over...

Government in action. America has realized the massive mistake they made in 2008. Buyer's remorse has hit home. Meanwhile Bobo continues to blame Bush while doing many of the same things Bush did (two years on). He's so convinced of his superior intellect, he doesn't realize his shameless hypocrisy ...

Re: America rejects Democratic/Obama direction

Republicans would lose because of their ridiculous idea to concentrate on 'personal issues.'
Democrats fell in love with a first term community organizer with zero experience, who never ran a business or held a real job. And only now are beginning to realize their mistake.

Dance, monkey.

Re: America rejects Democratic/Obama direction

America rejects Democratic/Obama direction

President Obama acts a lot like Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Obama is inventing program after program in a head long rush to direct economic growth through centralized government planning and to pump tax dollars and beyond into favored industries, all in an effort doomed to fail.

Re: Visa advice please

Do us a favour, go there, apply for double entry and let us know what they did. That way we all can have the advantage of factual reports, "have been told", "I heard" and "a friend of mine" are bs, facts is what counts, at least on the day.

Re: Child of FOUR years old , can be sued !

The presence or absence of parents means nothing in an accident. Why should their presence implicate them in an accident? This isn't a case of proving innocence or guilt. There is a big difference between a civil case and a criminal case. In a civil case under tort law, there is a possibility of pun...

Re: Child of FOUR years old , can be sued !

The four-year-old ran into the old lady, presumably knocking her down and killing her. The child is at fault for the geezer's death. Period. If the child was horsing around in the house and knocked the old lady down and she cracked her head on a table corner, the circumstances aren't really any diff...
