Depending upon how lazy you are, here are some explanations as to what the fuck is going on in Kiey lately. Here is the Ukraine crisis explained in 90 seconds. The Ukraine protest explained in 3 Minutes. And the Ukraine's protests explained by a Canadian.
Ukraine is balanced precariously between remaining a close partner of Russia, or joining the EU. The government want to remain friends with Russia. Russia wants another ally, and the Ukrainian government are being given deals like this as what's commonly seen as a "reward" for staying loyal to Putin. It helps since the country is in financial difficulty and close to defaulting. A significant number of people in Ukraine, however, don't care about that and want to move towards the EU, in the hopes of having higher standards of living and better trade with, and access to, the western world. The government is completely shutting out public opinion on this matter. The conflict has been escalating until a few days ago, when the government decided to say fuck it to civil liberties and put in place some rather heavy-handed laws, making it jailable offences to blockade public buildings, wear masks or helmets at demonstrations, erect unauthorised tents in public areas, and even made it arrestable to "slander a government official." So now people are going crazy with riots over being ignored by an elected government, and violently repressed by their rushed new laws. [source]
Meanwhile in Detroit -- which coincidently looks a lot like the Ukraine as of late -- a mother opened fire Monday night when three suspects broke into her home. When she heard the door to her home being kicked in, she immediately warned the three teenage intruders and then opened fire, sending the intruders scattering. One of the teens dropped a handgun on his way out the door. He then tried to get back inside the house a second time, but was again met with gunfire. Once again, he took off and all three were arrested shortly after the incident by Detroit Police. Surveillance cameras caught it all; my personal favorite was at the 0:50 mark where the cop proceeded to point the Hi-Point carbine -- which can be had for under $300 -- at his own balls.
It's so incredibly complicated, you have Western Ukraine that leans to Poland and speaks a hybrid of Polish/Ukrainian/Russian and is a little more European, A little, then the Eastern Ukraine, more Russian, Russian speaking, closer to Mother Russia. Toss in EVERY government has corruption, they all do, then a bunch of idealistic kids that want change but by their own admission don't want to even stay in the country after they get the change they seek, the others that want to stay are pissed at the ones messing everything up....... all this is messing up international humanitarian aid and work folks like me have been bridging, which let me tell you, it has been an uphill battle and this only doubles the work. - Elizabeth
If you study history and the Ukraine its not hard to see why there is such a division between the East and West Ukraine. Following World War II many Ukrainians disappeared and their homes resettled by Russians. It was in part punishment for many Ukrainians greeting the invading Germans as liberators and the Ukrainian's who fought for Germany. There was even a Ukrainian SS Divison (1st Ukrainian) 14th Waffen SS Grenadier Division "Galician". So, two generations later you have "Russian-Ukrainians" calling the Ukrain home and in conflict with those who call themselves native Ukrainian. Mike

An LED rope light is primarily used as a decorative lighting fixture, featuring small Light-emitting diode (LED) light bulbs linked together and encased in a PVC jacket to create a string of lights. LED lights are used for both decorative and practical lighting purposes. Some common indoor uses including outlining the edge of a kitchen counter or bar, comprehensive ceiling lighting and under-lighting the baseboards in a movie theatre. Rope lights are also ideal for room with no permanent layout like a garage, attic or bedrooms, where it can provide comprehensive lighting throughout the entire room regardless of how things are arranged.
A little late but if any of you are looking for any last-minute gift ideas for me, I have one. I'd like Frank Shirley, my boss, right here tonight. I want him brought from his happy holiday slumber over there on Melody Lane with all the other rich people and I want him brought right here, with a big ribbon on his head, and I want to look him straight in the eye and I want to tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shit he is! Hallelujah! Holy shit! Where's the Tylenol?
Many of us use Google services each day but very few of us ask the question, "How BIG is Google?" Obviously this question cannot be answered directly, however, the sheer size of Google can be realised by the hard facts and figures shown in this short film.

Hello Ernie! Great website, keep up the excellent stuff, blah, blah. Jamie Curtis allegedly suffers from a condition called Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome (previously called Testicular Feminization). She was reportedly born with since surgically removed testes and has a "blind pouch" meaning a short vagina, and lacks female reproductive organs. One of the unique side effects of this condition are fairly large, perfectly symmetrical breasts. I am a retired licensed medical professional but I never encountered this syndrome in practice. Older medical textbooks had photos of people with this condition, but current sensitivities have forced their removal from all but specialist genetic journals. Regards, Peter
