Re: Right now I'm reading

Shoe Dog by Phil Knight the dude who created Nike.

Everyone I know who has read it agrees it's a page-turner. He's a great writer and a very solid story. One of the most interesting, well-written biographies I can remember reading.

Re: Biden's America: Russian Military Buildup on Ukrainian Border

If things kicked off with Russia, then presumably China would jump in for them and vice versa? The West factors India into their plans, so that weapons agreement could be pretty inconvenient.

Re: Crypto

Wow - sorry been away from the forums for a bit: I find Australia's preoccupation with property and house ownership annoying. It was noted at a work seminar with international people how much of an obsession we have with house prices vs. the rest of the world. My attitude I think is fuelled by: - A ...

Anyone here onboard? I get a lot of pro-crypto stuff on my Twitter timeline everyday, but don't often hear dissenting voices. Aside from the one in my head exclaiming nothing's real.

Bugger.

Are the people being looked after or do you think it will get ugly? I think about some of those suburbs in the outlying areas of Waikiki.

Re: Presidential Debates

All I caught was Trump lashing Biden for not mentioning cops in Portland because his radical left support would dissipate. I thought it was pretty spot on.

Overall, hasn't made me more relaxed about the future though.

In 2010, someone told me verbally, in person a relative was doing Krav Maga. Within 10 minutes I got a target ad for a local Krav school. I had never searched for it, or even had an interest.

I spoke to my doctor this week. He's Chinese so I asked for his take on what's happening. I didn't know that he was practising over there in emergency units during SARS. He said COVID is definitely not as deadly, but with SARS, it never escaped because people died so quickly. He told me he'd show up...

Yep, from cluster fitness NZ. Took 14 weeks to arrive as they order a container once a month from China. There’s a few options for buffalo style bars in Aus, the Goliath one is really good If they get back in stock. The cluster I think is a the same as Titan Yukon, knurling is pretty soft, and ring...
