Awwwww thanks Leyrann :)

 

I should probably give my points away too.

 

5 points for each helpful gift/hint/tip for an American moving to the UK. When I run out of points I'll just use Turin's :)

1. Convince as many people as you can that UK should leave EU.

2. Do we need something else?

Oh I dunno ... I don't mind being in the EU. People have just got a bee in their bonnets about European migrants arriving and not working, which is fair enough. If they fix that - and just make it equal all over Europe, then that would make everyone more happy. I can't really complain about immigrants when I'm going to be marrying one lol.

 

5 points for 1 top tip.

Oh it's not just the immigrants (that are actually ILLIGALLY in the EU because, as war refugees, they should, following international law, seek refugee in the FIRST safe country they come across, which happens to be Turkey. Turin, however, is a 100% legal migrant and on top of that used to the European culture (or one extremely similar)).

 

It's also the association treaty they want to sign with Ukraine. (MILITARY COOPERATION WITH A COUNTRY IN WAR WITH RUSSIA WTF)

It's also the attempts to join up with Erdogan. (who all but officially SUPPORTS FREAKING ISIS)

It's also the extremely undemocratic setup of the European Union. (who the FFFF do they answer to? Exactly. No one.)

It's also the way HUNDREDS OF EUROS disappear to other European countries PER HEAD in the richer countries. Not to mention 100% illegal additional levy's every year.

 

It's EVERYTHING ABOUT THE DAMN EU.

 

Seriously, give it five more years and we should call it Fourth Reich instead of European Union.

Oh, and I realize I forgot something.

 

That association treaty with Ukraine also allows free migration. Imagine 15 million poor Ukrainians all coming to Western Europe. You seeing our welfare state collapse yet?

Princess Bride was on BBC America last night. First time in ages I actually sat down and watched the whole thing beginning to end. I was happy I did.

    • You can carry water in a metal bucket, or a plastic bucket, or a glass vase, or a ceramic jar. You could scoop it up with a wooden spoon, or a glass bowl, or even a hat.   Just as there are a lot of ways to do the same thing in mundane tasks, there are a lot of ways to do the same thing with the Power.
    • Remember that there's also a fountain in the city that presumably gets water from the lake.
    • Just because she thinks it doesn't mean it's true. Character POVs are not objective truths.   In addition, we don't really know how the Power stacks up. Two women Linking does not double the amount of power available, it only makes the circle somewhat stronger than a lone channeler. However, being stronger means being able to do more things, things you couldn't do before. That's why angreal and circles are useful.   A circle of channelers can easily shield an equal number of unlinked channelers, but if the unlinked channelers attacked the circle from different directions and in different ways, the circle would have a difficult time fending them off, since only one person can control the flows.   So we really don't know how much stronger Nynaeve is compared to the other AS, and how much stronger the circle + sa'angreal makes them. I know there is a ranking listed in the BWB, but those values are not necessarily on a linear scale. For example, is Rand, who is rated 100, only 1% stronger than Demandred, who's 99? We really don't know.
    • Thanks.  Are you aware of any site that has compiled a list (with sources) of what each state is actually doing in plain-English as well as the exact wording used in legalese?  Side Note: Apparently Legalese isn't actually slang.
