    This just doesnot happen in modern times with folks who fellow
    Christianity to any degree.

    preaching is still going strong, especially in the former slave states
    of the USA.

    You do see where I am located? right? Upstate New York...

    Yeah, but I didn't see you differentiating between northern and southern branches of US Christianity.

    Can you quote the chapter and verse of the Koran that says that?

    Not bloody likely. The Koran is mostly a verbatim copy of the Christian Bible. Unlike the Jewish ditto that only includes the Old Testament and leaves out all of the Jesus tales.

    All three (Christianity, Islam and Judaism) are basically one and the same religion, the only three that are monotheistic and are based on the same fictive person called Abraham.

    I see. Thankfully we don't need a license to own/possess a gun
    here in the USA. Our Constitution guarantees us the absolute
    RIGHT to do so.

    In most states that is not true. One needs a license to purchase and in
    many places needs to pass a gun safety course. You seem to be from

    In January 1981 I was on a job in Miami. We were supposed to stay in a hotel
    there, but our agent relocated us to Ft. Lauderdale for safety reasons.

    There seemed to be too many happy gun owners running rampant all over Miami.
    That sure didn't make them safe...

    No guns -- no gun shot killings. The only purpose of a handgun is to kill people. It's as easy as that.

    Their success ratio is although far below that of the gun crazy people, including their police, anyway. And much more costly at that.

    BOC. The rest of the world knows that, but unfortunately the US people are still feeding the gun producer's wallets, hiding behind this stupid arms race of theirs.

    .. to kill more British people.

    I think it's more about killing as many people as possible, and just let their God sort them out. They *know* they are good Christians, so they *know* that they are the good guys.

    Sorry to disappoint you, but most Volvo cars are still manufactured at the Torslanda factory, some 5km from my home.

    The Chinese ownership has had very little impact on the Volvo except for a major sales increase in China from Volvo cars manufactured there.

    BTW, I hope you haven't missed that the Chinese cooperation has resulted in all Volvo cars after 2022 will be electric? Hybrid as well as all electric.

    Sorry to correct you but there is not an unsignificant Volvo plant in Gent (Belgium),

    YTD Volvo has manufactured 217,855 cars worldwide. Of these 57,391 were produced in Belgium. That's 26.34% of the world production. Volvo official figures.

    I didn't look up the numbers for the production plant in Shah Alam, Malaysia nor Chengdu and Daqing in China or Berkeley County South Carolina USA. More in China under construction. It means Torslanda is less important than you want to
    make us believe.

    BTW, I hope you haven't missed that the Chinese cooperation has
    resulted in all Volvo cars after 2022 will be electric? Hybrid as well as all electric.

    There's hardly a market for that. The big problems in mainland Europe being the
    effort to keep electric cars fueled. The electricity grid is already under continuous pressure and simply is unable to cater for 298.9 million cars in the
    EU.

    Suck on that Mercedes, good German antiquated and heavily overpriced design, and all your Belgian customer suckers! 8-)

    Whatever turns you on. Over the years my family has traditionally bought Volvo and as the years went on we noticed the steel plates becoming thinner and thinner. Probably those cars are now full of plastic too.

    I don't believe that is true. Perhaps in the few almost-communist
    states like Kalifornia, NY, NJ, IL, MD, etc you need a license to
    purchase, but not in nearly all other states.

    You may be confusing the requirements to get a "concealed carry"

    Sorry to correct you but there is not an unsignificant Volvo plant in
    Gent (Belgium),

    Last time I looked, that was not located in China and therefore their products can not be labelled as Chinese products as per the above?

    But yes, the Gent factory has always -- throughout various owners -- always been a pride of the Volvo family ever since it's foundation in 1965.

    My BIL worked there for a couple of years assisting in updating the factory in the 1980s so I have some inside information about the Gent plant.

    And yes, I'm well aware of the fact that Volvo has manufacturing plants all around the world -- as has all major car manufacturers.

    What I objected to was that Volvo should be a Chinese product.

    Well, when cooking I never waste such an extraordinary product as Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I only use butter and/or Rape Seed oil for cooking.

    The only time I use my valuable Extra Virgin Oil is when dripping it onto a salad, pasta, pizza, making mayonnaise or something similar. Heating it in a frying pan reduces it to Ordinary Olive Oil.

    In my previous comment I mentioned a few of my uses of this wonderful product that nature has given us.

    I deliberately left out the most important use of mine.

    And here I suggest that all the prudish US readers skip to the next message,
    because this is about sex, something that you obviously does not want to read or hear about -- unless it involves a lot of violence.

    My wife and I first came in contact with the use of EVOO in our bedroom some
    30 years ago. After that first encounter, she always kept a small bottle of EVOO handy in our bedroom.

    Many seriously erotic encounters later I still remember every one of them. I
    remember the massage I gave her with the EVOO, I remember the poignant taste of her salty sweat in combination with the fantastic olive oil. All over her body.

    And I still miss her like hell, more than three years after her untimely demise... :(

    If you really want to give your loved one the erotic experience of his or her life, I suggest that you take a small bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (it surely doesn't have to be Italian) into your bedroom and surprise her.

    I use olive oil to fight ants.

    When summer arrives and an ant-colony digs itself out of the ground, I always pour olive oil in it. A lot. Cheap Spanish olive oil, but still olive oil.

    It doesn't kill the ants but it messes with the larvae gluing their breathing holes shut and they die.

    It's a perfectly biological way to wipe-out an ant nest and leaves only a greasy stain which eventually dries out.

    For a country with such firearm saturation it is surprising that so many citizens die from overexposure to firearms. All of these defensive weapons on the night-stand don't seem to help much.

    I've noticed a large number of Volvo semi tractors on the highways around here. Used to be they were all Freightliners, Peterbilts and Internationals

    Mack trucks sold in Australia now come with Volvo engines.

    help? What will either of those actions get you? That's right...... dead. For someone (like me) who has a loaded pistol in my nightstand, the outcome will likely be two dead thugs, and my family and property safe.

    I agree with Dan here, you want intruders coming through a window or through the frontdoor. or not at all, it is imperative to protect home and family at any cost necessary.

    I wonder how many times your outcome is what really happens as opposed
    to something else. E.g. one of the kids finds the gun and plays with
    it.

    Sure it is sad when a child plays with a gun and is killed by it, But that is no reason to eliminate them nor is it segway for the anti-gun people to start pointing fingers offering a lot air which does not do anything constructive.

    The real question has to be about accountability, is the gun not where
    children can reach it but accessible enough in case it is need for home defense.

    I see. Thankfully we don't need a license to own/possess a gun
    here in the USA. Our Constitution guarantees us the absolute
    RIGHT to do so.

    In most states that is not true. One needs a license to purchase and in many places needs to pass a gun safety course. You seem to be from Florida, which has a more lenient set of rules.

    To hell with lefty democrats telling us what we should and shouldn't do. Andrew Cuomo one of many stupid remarks....
    "you don't need 10 shots to shoot a deer."

    He thinks of himself to much and must of been rather proud of himself
    when he made this self-proculamation on guns in New York.
    What is allowed and not allowed. He can jump off the highest bridge as far as
    I am concerned. Maybe the new one called Mario M. Cuomo bridge that he named from his daddy at the tax payers expense.

    As far I am concerned these Gun Rights are Federal Rights, that can not be taken away by any state.

    In January 1981 I was on a job in Miami. We were supposed to stay in

    There seemed to be too many happy gun owners running rampant all over Miami. That sure didn't make them safe...

    No guns -- no gun shot killings. The only purpose of a handgun is to kill people. It's as easy as that.

    Hello Fabio,

    Hey! What's wrong with a Volvo? It beats any Beemer any day of the
    week and twice on Sundays. 8-)

    Well, since they are now a Chinese product ... I bought myself a hog
    of a Mercedes... Good German design.

    Yes, with a modern Renault engine. :P

    Nothing like a Jaguar, which prowls the streets of London ...

    Ward Volvo and BMW are the state of the art of Cars! Mercedes is running
    on
    the sunset lane, poor overall quality and mediocre engines are qualifying modern mercedes products.

    Italian motorcycles are much better than anything Mercedes has.

    I own two BMW's a 1983 320i E30 and a 1998 320i E46 and I'd like to own
    also
    a great Volvo 240 Polar Station Wagon. Obviusly I don't like modern cars. ;)

    Wha'? And leave out the greatest of them all? Surely, you jest!

    Fiat! The one and only car that could ever rival the Yugo!
    And what a great car was the Yugo! Based on the 1969 Fiat!
    In fact, it *was* a 1969 Fiat! Same parts, anyway ...

    It's much more complicated then that?
    What is a fetus?
    When does life begin?
    Is it a fetus still when born at the end of a full term pregnancy.
    At what point does it become immoral?

    Why is it acceptable to kill someone entering a home uninvited, but not for a woman who has an unwanted conception?

    Choices leads to intent which leads the criminal act which leads to
    judgment and then punishment.

    I had a 2001 V70 wagon, the plain old model - and loved it.

    I have 2010 V70 and I still love it. I first fell in love with it when my wife and I borrowed it from the original owner, my BIL, for the round trip to and from our daughter who lives 1250km from here. Watching the fuel consumption
    on 120km/h highway speed going down to around 5 litres/100 km was something amazing. The Mercedes we left behind barely made it below 10 litres.

    We instantly decided that we wanted to buy that car from the BIL, who worked
    at Volvo and had special employee deals, when he decided to upgrade to a newer
    model. And we got it in 2015 and I still hang on to it.

    I still
    want to get a 2004 XC70 if I can find a well-maintained one - that was
    the last purely Volvo (designed and built by Volvo) if memory serves.
    I think the next year was the year they came out with that Ford Taurus world platform.

    Of that I've never heard. Volvo never used any Ford technology. On the contrary, Ford copied the Volvo platform and tried to make Ford cars that would
    match the well known Volvo reputation. And failed miserably.

    Volvo cars has always been developed in Gteborg, Sweden ever since 1927, and Volvo will proudly continue to do so. The Ford years 1999-2009 were not good for Volvo, but they continued to build high quality cars despite Ford's wishes. The 2002 XC90 for instance was a formidable sale success.

    Fortunately those years were even worse for Ford, that didn't know how to properly use what they bought (Volvo, Aston Martin, Land Rover and Jaguar). So in 2009 they finally gave up.

    Bullshit. I'm anti-abortion and could not care less about
    religion. Speaking for myself, I'm against it because I don't
    think an innocent baby should be killed because the mother is irresponsible/stupid, or for any other reason for that matter.

    Adoption is always a better option.

    A foetus is NOT a child. A woman wanting to expel a foetus obviously does not have a lot of love for it.

    A foetus cannot be murdered - unless they make abortion illegal. If it
    is legal it is not murder.

    It's much more complicated then that?
    What is a fetus?

    noun: foetus
    an unborn or unhatched offspring of a mammal, in particular an unborn human more than eight weeks after conception.

    When does life begin?

    That is the $64,000 question. If it is immoral to "kill" a foetus why is it acceptable to kill an 18yo soldier or civilian children?

    Is it a fetus still when born at the end of a full term pregnancy.

    The moment of birth it becomes a baby. A foetus is "unborn"

    At what point does it become immoral?

    As with right and wrong, morality is a matter of personal choice (like abortion
    should be)

    Why is it acceptable to kill someone entering a home uninvited, but not
    for a woman who has an unwanted conception?

    Choices leads to intent which leads the criminal act which leads to judgment and then punishment.

    Then don't legislate against abortion and it will not be a criminal act.

    I doubt that many women who seek an abortion "chose" to become pregnant.

    The news media out of the USA reaching here does seem fixated on "late term abortion", not something I'm aware of in Australia (doesn't mean it isn't happening though).

    I suppose that with abortion being legal here the women get it over and done with early instead of having to fight tooth and nail until late in the pregnancy to have the procedure.

    Of course the emphasis on late term abortion may just be the mandate of an anti
    abortion editorial policy...

    Mr. Trump has described some current abortion legislation as above, but

    Bullshit. I'm anti-abortion and could not care less about

    Foxes at least can burrow under the fences. My brother had a female dog here for a while. We found a number of places where the local male dogs had got under the fence.

    The bitch is now gone (cancer) and the fence is undergoing a rebuild with barbed wire top and bottom of the netting before he gets another.

    At least it seems to work for my neighbours, with a lot of foxes, wolves and stray dogs running around here.

    The dogs entering this property were more interested in the company of the brother's bitch than bothering our chooks. The chook pen has netting buried some distance down and out from the wall but the chooks roam free during the daytime within the greater fenced property (2.16ha).

    Good question, I look forward to seeing the answer.

    It was answered a couple of days ago.

    Well, considering that they are not living anywhere near me, and
    don't have a key to the house anyway, that possibility is zero.

    I.e. they would just have to sit outside your house making a lot of
    noise until you came to investigate?

    No, but the various states have laws which vary on that topic. There
    was a fairly famous case in Florida a few years back when a young man
    was walking back from a store and was shot and killed for WWB (walking
    while black). The man who shot him was a "neighbor hood watch guard"
    (i.e. self appointed patrol). He got free because the law in Florida
    included what was called "stand your ground" implying that even on a
    public street you had the option to use deadly force if you felt
    threatened. That was not even a case of shooting a suspected home
    invader.

    Other states do not have such a law. Hard to define what is legally
    justified across the nation.

    Hello David,

    Some while back another USAmerican Fidonetter (whose name we do not
    mention)
    made all sorts of boasts regarding his prowess with firearms...

    I remember him.

    He is no longer with us.

    He'll be back.

    Thank you for your participation.

    He is still on the nodelist ...

    But just a lurker nowadays....

    And waiting for just the right moment to jump back in ...

    I think the next year was the year they came out with that Ford Taurus world platform.

    Of that I've never heard. Volvo never used any Ford technology. On
    the contrary, Ford copied the Volvo platform and tried to make Ford
    cars that would match the well known Volvo reputation. And failed miserably.

    Actually, it was 2007, the 3rd generation. The Ford Galaxy, S-Max,
    Mondeo and Land Rover Freelander all used the same platform and shared
    aroud half of the parts with each other.

    Volvos have gotten too expensive, I should have gotten an XC70 in 2004
    and taken a trip to the factory to pick it up. I have family in Lund
    and Copenhagen I could have visited in the process.

    help? What will either of those actions get you? That's right...... dead. For someone (like me) who has a loaded pistol in my nightstand,
    the outcome will likely be two dead thugs, and my family and property safe.

    I wonder how many times your outcome is what really happens as
    opposed to something else. E.g. one of the kids finds the gun
    and plays with it.

    Anyone who allows the chance of a kid finding/playing with the gun
    should be prosecuted and jailed. In my case, the kids are grown,

    I completely agree -- but I was reacting to your statement "who has a
    loaded pistol in my nightstand".

    and even yet, the gun is in a locked (biometric quick-open) small
    safe. All the other guns in the house are locked in a large safe
    in another room. Zero chance of anyone accessing any of them "accidently".

    You did not say that you had a safe in your nightstand. That is much
    more responsible than your orignal statement implied.

    I see. Thankfully we don't need a license to own/possess a gun
    here in the USA. Our Constitution guarantees us the absolute
    RIGHT to do so.

    In most states that is not true. One needs a license to purchase
    and in many places needs to pass a gun safety course. You seem
    to be from Florida, which has a more lenient set of rules.

    I don't believe that is true. Perhaps in the few almost-communist
    states like Kalifornia, NY, NJ, IL, MD, etc you need a license to purchase, but not in nearly all other states.

    You left out CT, DC, HI, IO, MA, MN, NB, NC, and RI from your list of
    states where one needs a permit to purchase a handgun. That makes 14
    and so I will amend my statement from most to many. There are other
    states where one does not need a permit to purchase, but must register.
    Even Florida requires a 3 day waiting period for a records check.


    You may be confusing the requirements to get a "concealed carry"
    permit, which does require a license, safety course, etc (in most
    but not all states).

    No -- I looked up the states I was most familiar with, including the
    state where I live and have the most knowledge.

    Hello Bjrn!

    20 May 19 16:25, you wrote to me:

    Well, when cooking I never waste such an extraordinary product as
    Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I only use butter and/or Rape Seed oil for cooking.

    In Italy the butter is used mainly only for cakes and for "Risotto".

    I Think it's mainly a cultural and geographical matter, in past times the commercial exchanges was less than now and countries that don't have the rigth climate to grow Olive Tree used animal fat like butter and lard.

    We use Extra Virgin Olive oil for everything, mainly for raw food like salads or tomatoes but also on grilled meat or grilled vegetables but also when we prepare sauces, for example in Ragu' alla bolognese, Amatriciana, Carbonara and
    so on we only use EVOO.

    The only time I use my valuable Extra Virgin Oil is when dripping
    it onto a salad, pasta, pizza, making mayonnaise or something similar. Heating it in a frying pan reduces it to Ordinary Olive Oil.

    Mayonnaise with EVOO gets a bit stronger taste, if you like it so it's ok, otherwise we use seeds oil for a bit smoother taste.

    In the last times the price for *REALLY* IEVOO (a lot of frauds happened in Italy) has raised a lot so we use EU EVOO for coocking and IEVOO for raw food.

    The one in my bedroom (locked in a biometric-lock small safe) - in
    2-3 seconds. Probably less if I'm not fully asleep.

    'Biometric" as in how? Fingerprint? Eye-scan? Bettery powered or on the grid? If I enter your house illegally and shut-off the power first, is the safe still
    safe? Can it still be opened?

    Just curious.

    Personally I don't get excited about gun-ownership but if I'd live in Montana, I'd have one.

    I've had one break-in attempt many years ago, young kids (like in their 20s) trying to get in via the garage. Now I still have my grandfather's WW1 bayonet sheathed. These were not small things but long heavy things, like a small sword. Slammed-on the lights, stood there, unsheathed the bayonet/sword in plain sight and I swear I've never seen anyone run as fast as these kids to the
    get-away car.

    Ever since, I also have baseball bats at strategic locations, out of sight, but

    I'll take your word on the 14, but to put that into percentages,
    that's about 28%. Not sure that even qualifies for the "many"
    category. Perhaps "some". I would also argue that those 14
    states may have un-Constitutional requirements in place.

    There are other states where one does not need a permit to
    purchase, but must register. Even Florida requires a 3 day
    waiting period for a records check.

    There are many details... In Florida the 3-day waiting period is
    waived for people who possess Concealed Carry Permits, which are
    fairly easy to get. Does require fingerprinting, background
    check, proof of safety training, etc. Also, the 3-day thing is
    only for handguns - long guns have no waiting period.

    Hello Bjrn,

    Ward is a Barbarian, he use butter instead of Italian Extra Virgin Olive
    Oil, you can figure out his taste about cars. :P :P :P

    In my previous comment I mentioned a few of my uses of this wonderful product that nature has given us.

    Thanks to Casanova, who taught us how to use it.

    I deliberately left out the most important use of mine.

    Jesus' first miracle was turning water into wine. He did it
    because his mother asked him to. If you read the gospel account,
    you'll know what really happened, and why.

    Jesus' friends had crashed a wedding reception, and drank all
    the wine in storage. Jesus' mother was desperate, and asked him
    to do something, as his friends were passed out drunk with no wine
    left in the caskets.

    At first, he refused, saying it was not yet his time. Now, in
    order to understand this, realize that Jewish men do not start
    growing a beard until they get married. And Jesus was still a
    very happy single guy, with no beard at all.

    However, his mother insisted. And continued to insist. Until
    finally Jesus gave up and told her he would take care of it.

    Rather than waking up his friends, as he knew what they would do,
    Jesus instructed one of workers at the reception to fill up one
    of the caskets with water. Then, he waved his magic hands and
    turned the water into erotic oil.

    The bride and groom then entered the room, and were totally
    amazed. Dipping his finger into the casket, the groom instantly
    knew he and his bride were going to have loads of fun after the
    party.

    There is some question as to whether Jesus was a he or a she.
    In my opinion, Jesus was a true hermaphodite, as the gospel
    accounts clearly show his lover Judas Iscariot kissing him on
    the lips in an olive garden.

    Why else would Roman soldiers need a guy to point out Jesus,
    unless Jesus was a woman? All the married guys had beards, but
    no women. Therefore, it stands to reason ...

    And here I suggest that all the prudish US readers skip to the next
    message,
    because this is about sex, something that you obviously does not want to read or hear about -- unless it involves a lot of violence.

    Vikings. The race that conquered the world. Violent? With horns
    on helmets, you betcha!

    My wife and I first came in contact with the use of EVOO in our bedroom
    some
    30 years ago. After that first encounter, she always kept a small bottle
    of
    EVOO handy in our bedroom.

    Olive oil has been used for thousands of years, especially noted
    by Italians, Greeks, and Mediterranean peoples. There are other
    natural personal lubricants, but olive oil is the nectar of the
    gods (in a manner of speaking).

    Many seriously erotic encounters later I still remember every one of them.
    I
    remember the massage I gave her with the EVOO, I remember the poignant taste of her salty sweat in combination with the fantastic olive oil. All over her body.

    It's even better when you spice it up. Black pepper, geranium,
    ylang ylang ...

    And I still miss her like hell, more than three years after her untimely demise... :(

    I was at a casino the other day, and overheard an elderly lady
    who was playing the slots "I hope there are slot machines in heaven."

    Mormons hold the view that there is sex in heaven, with those
    they were with on this planet. Now, I do not know how different
    Mormon heaven is from other heavens. Nor do I care to find out.

    Point is, once an individual has completed his/her task on this
    plane of existence, then that individual moves on to his/her next
    plane of existence, whatever that may be.

    Are there slot machines in heaven?
    Is there sex in heaven?

    Longing for something that once existed is looking backward.
    It is a hope imagined, but nothing real.

    And yet, we must imagine for anything to be real.

    If you really want to give your loved one the erotic experience of his or her life, I suggest that you take a small bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (it surely doesn't have to be Italian) into your bedroom and surprise her.

    Adding black pepper gives it a warming sensation.
    Adding peppermint gives it a cooling sensation.
    Adding cinnamon oil gives it a very warm sensation.

    Really fun combos to experiment with. Not limited
    to those mentioned. Best in small doses before going
    whole hog.

    Oil-based personal lubricants (such as olive oil) won't work
    with condoms. Or anything else made of latex. Better to ask
    David D. for some sheep.

    Rapeseed oil a definite no-no.
    Remember, you have been warned.

    Olive oil + coconut oil + (essential oils of choice) = workable combo

    You think of your self as snarky and snappy, attempting to toss this back in my lap, such as you have. Remember, I live in New York, where the Democrats know not, right from wrong. The Truth is that there are people from both sides of the isle that are at odds with the abortion issue. So your attempt to call
    this a righty conservative issue, is yet another example of your failure.

    I know where I stand on the issue and that is all that matters to me and the people that I choose to associate with. They believe as I do.
    I guess it is true what they say, Great minds think alike.

    Let me not be coy as you were, in the circumstance of a rape or in danger of the mothers life, then of course, it is the carrying a child to full term delivering the child normally then making the child comfortable before it's murdered, that is not only wrong but it is also inconceivability evil.

    To hell with lefty democrats telling us what we should and shouldn't

    Is that any less acceptable than "righty" conservatives telling women
    what they can do with THEIR bodies?

    You think of your self as snarky and snappy, attempting to toss this back
    in my
    lap, such as you have. Remember, I live in New York, where the Democrats
    know
    not, right from wrong.

    Right and wrong are a matter of personal opinion.

    The Truth is that there are people from both sides of
    the isle that are at odds with the abortion issue. So your attempt to call this a righty conservative issue, is yet another example of your failure.

    Anti-abortion is a conservative outlook, regardless of which political persuasion one is aligned to

    I know where I stand on the issue and that is all that matters to me and
    the
    people that I choose to associate with. They believe as I do.

    Has anyone ever tried to force an abortion upon you? Why do you should force your abortion views on them?

    I guess it is true what they say, Great minds think alike.

    I guess you'll never know if you mix with such oppressive paople.

    Let me not be coy as you were, in the circumstance of a rape or in danger
    of
    the mothers life, then of course, it is the carrying a child to full term delivering the child normally then making the child comfortable before
    it's
    murdered, that is not only wrong but it is also inconceivability evil.

    A foetus cannot be murdered - unless they make abortion illegal. If it is legal
    it is not murder.

    Why is it acceptable to kill someone entering a home uninvited, but not for a woman who has an unwanted conception?
