Quote from: scarface on September 11, 2022, 10:47 PM90 kg is good, even if for 1.83 meters, the subject can be described as slightly overweight.
I was afraid you might be eating too many mcdonalds. Actually, the TV documentary says that the average weight for a man in the US is 200 pounds (or 90 kg) but the average size is 1.70m.
I'm the same size as you (1.83m), but I weigh between 80 and 84 kg.

You also have to factor into the equation that chronologically I'm a little older than you. I use the term "chronologically" because mentally I'm as young as Shadow.97 or Vasudev. ;)

And no, I stay away from all the junk food places. I try to keep myself in reasonable shape by walking some 3½ to 4 km every morning. In fact, I start feeling bad if I don't.

Dragon ball z - The awakening of Porunga. In the late 1980's I was a fan of dbz. I assume humbert, shadow.97, iih and Vasudev know this anime tv series.

Alicante City Guide | Spain |
I visited this town during summer 2002 and for me it is undoubtedly the most beautiful town in Spain. I remember that I read the book "le rouge et le noir" written by Stendhal, during the hot Spanish afternoons.

Quote from: scarface on September 06, 2022, 08:34 PMIn Iran it's allowed for non-Muslims. But you forgot Afghanistan, Somalia and Yemen. And in Pakistan it's also forbidden for Muslims I think.

It's not so much that I forgot. It's that the 3 countries you mentioned are very unstable and, to some degree, don't even have a legitimate government.

With respect to Iran I think you refer to foreign visitors who aren't Muslims. If you are Iranian you can't exactly decide you no longer want to be a Muslim and start drinking. People accused of drinking who were given 60 lashes will confirm this. Even if you were a foreign visitor and wanted a beer, where exactly do you find one?

Tonight, new videos are available on the forum.


This scene is taking place in the richest country of the world. The people in this street are just walking aimlessly. Those people live in a rich country and don't need to work because they don't need money, this is obvious. In Palestine or Egypt, Maher and Ahmad must be flabbergasted: in their country, most people need to work in the farms to produce food and earn a living. Humbert and Guliver must be thinking that those gamblers won big time in the heart of Monaco with poker, blackjack or roulette. The young usmangujjar must be thinking that the scene is taking place at the world forum of Davos: this is the place to be for important leaders, Putin and Bin Salman must be nearby. As for aa1234779 and shadow.97, they must be thinking that those people are customers strolling around the luxury stores of Dubai.
Actually, this scene is taking place in a Philadelphia neighborhood crippled by opioids, heroin and fentanyl. This street is the city's poor suburb which offers a glimpse of what the drug addiction epidemic has caused.

Today, I'm going to give you a brief overview of the stock markets.

U.S. stocks whiplashed on Tuesday in a volatile trading session at the start of the holiday-shortened week as investors weighed what strong economic data and rising rates mean for the Federal Reserve's aggressive tightening campaign.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 250 points, or 0.80%, climbing off lows of the day boosted by defensive stocks such as Johnson & Johnson and Coca-Cola. The S&P 500 slipped 0.68% and the Nasdaq Composite fell 0.98%, weighed down by falling tech stocks.

At the same time, bond yields surged, adding to the rout in stocks. The yield on the U.S. 10-year Treasury jumped as much as 0.162 percentage point to 3.353% before settling lower, up around 0.13 percentage point at 3.342% as investors sold bonds. Yields move inversely to prices.

The moves came after August ISM data Tuesday morning was stronger than expected, coming in at 56.9 versus expectations of 55.5. The report follows Friday's jobs release, which also beat Wall Street's expectations, showing a more solid U.S. economy than anticipated.

After a small rebound in Europe, the cac 40 and Dax Futures are down 0,4%.

Quote from: humbert on September 06, 2022, 05:06 AMWhat is so unusual about Corsican pork sausages that makes you believe I might not want to eat them?
Actually, I'm pretty sure you would. The figatelli have a strong flavour. But they are good.

Quote from: humbert on September 06, 2022, 05:06 AMReally? I had no idea. Not that I don't believe you, but let me ask Maher about it. I've asked him tons of questions about Islam and this never came up.
To put it bluntly, I don't imagine Maher speaking about alcohol and pork spontaneously. It's probably not interesting for him, since he doesn't drink alcohol (even if the sale of alcohol is not prohibited in Palestine). As for pork, it's not totally prohibited either in Islam. In fact, if you are starving and if there is nothing else to eat (for example you have a Christian neighbor who has cooked some pork chops but there are no vegetables), then you can eat pork meat. But this is an exception.

Quote from: humbert on September 06, 2022, 05:06 AMI know. To my knowledge the only countries that have total alcohol prohibition are Iran and Saudi Arabia.
In Iran it's allowed for non-Muslims. But you forgot Afghanistan, Somalia and Yemen. And in Pakistan it's also forbidden for Muslims I think.
