    Hey swede! All of my three Olgas, spectacular nerts and all, are quite in tact and doing well thanks. My foot is a bit swollen and discolored from the internal bleeding that goes along with a broken bone, but I was able to get a sock on it and attend my company's quarterly meeting yesterday. I can walk on it, and if I can get a work boot on, I plan to try to go to work on Monday.

    Even basic math skills are somewhat natural. Think fingers and toes my friend! My most perfect example of communication being basic is my trip to Lugansk and the fact that I didn't starve. I spoke no Russian and the grocery manager spoke no English, yet we did manage to communicate and I ate.

    Yes, the more advanced subjects require a certain level of teaching to be invovled, but information being passed down from one generation to the next is a natural occurrence to me. Many animals pass down information from generation to generation.

    Preditory hunting skills are not part of the lion's basic instincts. Sure, hunting is instinctive, but not the skill of stalking and taking an attack angle that gives the lion the ability to get close enough to a much faster prey and catch it. So teaching and learning are basic and natural in that respect.

    But, as I have said, it is the human ability to expand on what we are taught that makes us different. Oppenheimer's father new nothing of nuclear physics! Neither did his science teacher in grade school, at least not in practical application! So who taught him how to create a nuclear chain reation? It was his ability to reason and expand on passed learning that made it possible. So, yes, the human mind is capable of going further than today's knowledge, and hopefully today's "reptile brained" limitations.

    It's a bit of a surprise that the Europeans are dusting off the "Ivan the Terrible" mantra. But, if there is no bad guy to compare themselves with, even an imaginary one, it starts to become visible just how screwed up our "hero" politicians are! I can understand it though. Russia is still not as open about everything as some would like, but Putin put Russia's needs first and if that meant pissing off europeans, he didn't care. The country is growing stronger again, and although I can't see Russia trying to retake half of Europe again, I can see how this can be used as a fear tactic.

    FEAR!!!!!!!!!! One of the most basic and primal of all emotions!!!!!

    Thanks for the heads-up about those devious Swedes monitoring my e-mail. Nothing against Sweden, but I personally would have to place the Swedish secret police coming for me and my three Olgas near the bottom of my list of things to worry about today.[)][8D]

    Hi PeopleS,

    I must admit, that I've been rather gloomy lately, what with Ivans lurking around every corner, and out coming totalitarian alphas trying to save me from them.

    So I want to take a more optimistic outlook, and would like to ask your advice. I've heard (rumours get even as far as Sweden) that your crime-fighting career started as an apprentice in Gotham city, just after Robin went out as a journeyman. And that you found the Olgas, alone and bewildered, at the bottom of an empty swimmingpool, hiding under a pile of zirconium jewelry. Right?

    You see, I want to change direction in life, and as I can't fight the powermongers, I can at least fight normal criminals.

    Admittedly I've passed 60, but modern times being what they are, I believe that even homes for the elderly contains a lot of mobbing and scamming, residents against residents, residents against employees, everybody against everybody actually.

    So what do you think? This is an opening towards a new and meaningful life for me, or is it too late? And I'm not doing this only inspired by the thought of one day finding my own bunch of Olgas, f.ex. huddling in a sewage system, but by far loftier and nobler motives of making this a better world.

    I could even come to your city and start training under you, now your toe is incapacitating you. I am a person of small expectations and would gladly accept only one wing of your manorhouse as my humble dwelling.

    Hey swede! I can fully understand your gloom. The possibilty of having a Boris hiding under your bed is a scary though that could twist up any intellect! Thank God... or the Intelligent Design guy... or even David Hasselhoff, that you have those reptile-brained saviors to protect you!!!

    Why David Hasselhoff??? Well, he's popular in Germany and Sweden isn't that far from Germany, so I just threw it out there!

    Actually swede, I know the Batman, and we've partied together, but no, I wasn't the guy that took over for Dick Grayson. Remind me to tell you about the time the Bat, Green Hornet and I hooked up with those three strippers from Metropolis![:0][]

    As for my three Olgas, I won them in... A DRINKING GAME!!! I bet a Russian sex-slave trader that I could drink more of Russia's finest than he could of America's best hooch. He pulled out a bottle of some swill vodka and I presented him with Everclear corn liquor. Okay, the vodka was a solid 100 proof, but Everclear is 190 proof with a few proof to spare!!!

    The sex-slave trader is now blind and has lost about 75 IQ points since that encounter, and I have my Olgas!

    You see, fighting power-mongers takes a special knack. A few thoughts come to mind. One is ninja school, another is sniper school, and then's there is always explosives! But, to combat average evil, the ability to consume mass quantities of alcohol, just may surfice for you, as it has for me.[^]

    Now, 60 isn't so old! But, you may find it good practice to take on the criminal masterminds in the rest homes as a tune up for the more treacherous criminals that may await you.

    As for finding Olgas in a sewer system, I think I might avoid that. First of all, I really don't see much benefit to mankind from a superhero going into a sewer, and well, it's really hard to get the sewer smell out of an Olga, especially if she's been down there for a while!

    swede, you will always be welcome to make a guest appearance here at "Stately Smks Manor"![8D]

    Being soft and spoiled from living in Scandinavia, I've always lived in the illusion, that the pen is mightier than the sword (at least if you have a decent pen-sharpener). But this is propaganda spread by those in charge of machinegun-possession to avoid actual competion in the power-grabbing area. Now it's probably to late for me to change my ways, both in the department of personal convictions or by becoming a ninja (though the dress looks very coooool).

    In my dumb-blonde fantasy, I had dreamed about learning some mental technique, where I just look sternly at the bad guy, and he will go the to nearest monastery to seek enlightenment. This is along the line of also believing in people wanting a better world, but I've discovered, that the bastards are contend with wars, poverty, crime and illness. At least as long as it happens to someone else. When it happens to themselves, it's usually to late.

    The idea of world-improvement through alcohol appeals much more to me, but there's a problem here. While the world possibly will be better this way, my liver and kidneys won't (they are not factory fresh any more, and the guarantee has run out long time ago). I'm not sure, I'm that noble and unselfish, that I'll drink all mankind's shortcomings away.

    I have to disagree with you concerning sewer-Olgas. Considering the special psychology inherent in Olgas, it shouldn't be such a big problem to soak them in the swimmingpool a week or so. That ought to take the smell away.

    What would you know about being 60+, sonny. You ever tried it?

    Hey swede, two words... LIVER TRANSPLANT!!!!!!!!!!!

    Change what you can... except what you can't... and learn to understand the difference...

    It may sound like a defeatist's attitude at first, but it is a matter of self sanity. You're only one voice. Speak to those you can reach. It's up to them to listen or not. For you to "pound" your thoughts into the head of another would make you no better than the "reptile-brains" you are fighting against!

    Be honest with me my friend. If you were a trillionaire, euros, not USD, would you give away every last dime you had to the poor? Or would you give a lot, but keep enough to remain comfortable and ensure the comfort of your progeny???

    Now, as for sewer Olgas, not worth the effort. Trust me, they're quite plentiful if you look under the leaves in the fields on an Olga farm, found all over the FSU. Just rinse one off and you're good to go![:0][][)][8D]

    Some 20 years ago, I got my hands (completely legally) on a nice little pile (in todays money maybe $400.000). 50% went directly to charity. So I'm making 'arrangements' in my life, by keeping something back for the reptile part of me. But then I never was a christian, and 50% charity is better than nothing.

    But generally, my injun mentor, I listen to you, you are a good cleaner of mental cobwebs.

    And as far as badgers are able to express any positive or approving attitudes in life, great-grandfather badger seems to appreciate what you're saying, and he has also small hopes for me.

    Hey swede! $400,000 isn't really that much by today's standards here in the US... at least not when scaled against the salaries of some corporate executives who spend that flying to Brazil to take their clients to brunch!!!

    But it does show a generosity in you! 50%??? A tidy sum to be sure! Honestly, I would personally be inclined to use that kind of cash to help out my parents (kind of a pay-back for not taking the abortion option, or my dad not actually shooting me when he had the chance), but would probably hoard the rest, giving a much smaller amount to some charity that may actually use the money for what they represent as opposed to excessive administrative costs!

    Yes, we all have that sense of self-preservation that is very basic and instinctive and in today's world, money means self-preservation to some extent.

    99.9% of all people will look to secure their own personal security before all other nobilities. From there, they may tend to think about needy family and personal friends before turning their financial windfalls further outward. It seems fairly normal to me to behave this way.

    All noble intentions aside, how can a homeless man, sleeping in a cardboard box with newspaper sheets save the world?

    It may sound very cold hearted, but I'm one of those people who think the US should take every dime we send out in foreign aid world wide, cut it off, and look to raise up our own poor for one or two years and get them on their feet, then look to go back to helping the rest of the world... or bombing it??? We could use the money to build a wall between Texas and Mexico!!!

    Okay, I know... That last part was so wrong on so many levels!!![B)]

    Great-grandfather badger can have hope for you, me, and all of mankind, but he'll also need some patience... especially for the terminally "reptile-brained". The world may have to wait for them to die off because changing them is probably a lost cause.

    Hi PeopleS,

    what we generally are talking about now (worldsaving, egotism etc), has recently become a worry for me, as you without doubt have noticed. I still have my ideals intact, but I can see, that humanity is too stoopid to function even reasonably well. As you say, the reptile-part is too strong still, and I wonder how the beeb f.ex. the founding fathers of US ever got away with the quite good constitution, I believe you have (not that it's much respected nowadays, but still).

    The world is supposed to go down with clockwork regularity, the present bid is 2012; but this time I feel, there must be something about it (maybe not 2012 though). Nothing will survive a third worldwar, and it'll only take ONE crazie to start it. All the superpowers may play with chestswelling and showing backsides, knowing that it satisfies their own machismo and the public theater, but knowing that it's only for show.

    But there's always that one guy, with bad pottytraining or a really inflated ego, who'll have a button to press. And then the fireworks will start everywhere, without any hidingplaces. And for what, zirconium jewelry and DVD players? But I'll just have to grow up, and accept 'reality'. Double beeb.

    By the way, I have sympathy for your ideas of how to 'help' or not help other countries/cultures. Here we did it by accepting a very big immigration quote, with an administrative background insufficient to integrate the immigrants (there are no jobs for them, religious and other cultural conflicts have arosen etc), and I am considered slightly 'fascistic' because of my criticism about this. This may look strange in view of my other opinions, but the thing is, that the money I gave away, was MY money. If I had wanted to make an orphanage for hybrids between Olgas and penguins (I'm sure nobody would want them), it would be my business.

    And in any case most of the 'help' given is only so much political manipulation.

    I believe, that I've been grovelling enough in such subjects, and yesterday I formulated a question, which is closer to home on this forum than messias-complexes. Every time I look at an american crime movie (even the supposedly 'funny' ones), there's this scene from a bar, where skinny (rather anorectic), unattractive women with a look of terminal boredom do their things with the pole. And a group of starved men with calls and whistlings makes up the background.

    Can't say I'm an expert, but I would guess, that you would only find such 'live show' places in really big cities here in Scandinavia, and then even scarce. And a man behaving this way, would be considered slightly moronic. So is my movie-based information an expression of something real? It would show a lot about the mating/dating problems of US, if it is.

    Hey swede! I have to say that the "founding fathers" weren't THAT wonderful, although the US Constitution IS a very interesting document. But, "all men are created equal" only applied to white MEN of European decent and the new aristocrats of the land.

    I wouldn't worry too much about the total annihilation of life on earth happenning any time soon. I like to believe that despite their reptilian dispositions, leaders of countries that have such capability have come to fully understand that there would be NO WINNER in such stupidity.

    Kim Jong-Il is the closest to a "kill the world" mentality, but he doesn't have nearly enough nukes to do it. Radical terrorist groups would love to try it, I'm sure, but don't have the means.

    I want to go off on a little ramble about one of my favorite movies. You have to check out "Team America... World Police"! It was done with marionettes and is funny as hell!!! It makes fun of everything that is wrong with world politics, terrorism, the US, the UN... actors!

    In one scene, UN arms inspector Hans Blix tells Kim Jong-Il, "Let me inspect your whole palace... or else." Il responds, "Or else what?" In a very firm tone, Blix answers, "Or else, we will be very very angry with you... and we will write you a letter telling you how angry we are." Well, that's definitely the UN for you!

    Immigration is an issue for the US, and has been for a long time. Our biggest problem is that the US was founded by immigrants from europe! So, how does the government close the doors? We also don't have enough jobs to go around, and the increasing strain on our socialist programs has become a financial money-pit.

    Go-go bars, or strip clubs!!! The favorite pass time of the American male! Go watch a pretty girl do things that your fat lazy wife or girlfriend won't do!!! Unless, you make the mistake of taking one home with you and living with the dirty little heroin junkie wh@re for seven plus years like someone we know![B)]

    I've worked in a few of these places in the past... No I wasn't a dancer! I don't know what you saw in the movies, but these places can be anything from a corner bar to an elaborate nightclub. Girls range from drop dead gorgeous to girls that great grandfather badger would run away from! But, yea, most are bored to death.[xx(]

    Hey swede! A suppliment to the go-go bar thing, that ties into the FSU/MOB thing, FSU immigration to the US, etc...

    There is a go-go bar about 40 or 50 km from where I live, that is full of Olgas!!! I think Boris runs the place? Not sure??? FSU/MOBs that got their green card, divorced their American husbands and found out that you need to be married longer than two months before you get half of the guy's stuff?

    Or victims of Russian mob sex-slave trafficing?
