  3. It is Dutch, here a translation of the first part (with altavista). n our previous BenchDB Update you have been possible read that Tweakers.net are with a new comparison of multi-port Serial ATA raid adapters. For this comparison six adapters of 3ware, HighPoint, LSI Logic, Promise and has been meanwhile tested RAIDCore. Exactly for expiring the deadline got we onverwachts 8-poorts an adapter of Areca sent. Areca are a Taiwanese manufacturer with experience, indeed fairly unknown to our idea, much in the field of raid controllers. Moreover the company concentrates mainly on external raid solution, but provides internal PCI-X and PCI also some Express Raid-adapters. Some time ago kondigde the company already is four and considers poorts SATA raid adapters with PCI-X and PCI-E to. In the guide which at our sample of 8-poorts the Areca ARC-1120 Pci-X-ADAPTER became geleved, report is tevens made of 12 and 16-poorts adapters of which the specifications are not yet on the site of Areca available. The complete SATA RAID line-up van Areca exists with that from twelve adapters in configurations with 4.,8,.12 and 16-poorten, PCI-X - or PCI-E x4-interfaces, and normal or multi-lane connectors at the cards with 12 and 16 poorten. Multi-lane four Sata-poorten combine in some a infiniBand cable and prevent with that a heap spaghetti in server housings. Because of their strong specifications and relative onbekendheid in the Netherlands we spend raid adapters of Areca in this short Article extra attention on the SATA. Also we give to a performance preview of ARC-1120.

    Thank you , you make good post yourself That true that educated people are also *manipulated* by publicity. After reading the latest post i have one thing that come to my mind. I agree on many comment but only in part to other. But on top of that, i think we should talk about our society value, they are more and more related to money, competition, performance. Those value are right now at their top (i hope), and that do not look good. A professional baseball player is paid milion to play??? A big company president receive million because he successfully cutted expense... by cutting 500 job to give them to under contrator that are paid less or simply replaced them by new technology. Publicity, music clip, movie etc... are showing us a life of pleasure and facility... scientific advancement that supposedly improve our quality of life and it do but only if your lucky enough to have money and not been born with some disease or had drug abuser as a mother etc... It s great if your born in a environment where your development is promoted but even this case you call fall in drug abuse etc.. just look at how many star did. But hey!!! we can do better than that, but guess what need to change first... Capitalism and value behind it...what about to focus on human quality of life... over all, and to care about what really exist... human exist, money don t, economy don t. Im not against progress, but what is progress, is it only technology progress??? I don t think so. How hard is it to be born poor in a world of luxury. I can understand why some people act poorly (having a big tv screen when poor etc..) They are bombarded with publicity that make them think they need this brand of cloth or the big tv screen to be *IN* and this kind of (we can call it brainwashing) is very effective since it s start when your a little kid. It s like religion, you learn them when your a kid, your partly *builded* by it. About education now, ive seen some documentary showing the Japanese education system, and i must say it s horrible. It s only about performance and productivity, kid are so stressed by mother, father, teacher and general social pressure that when they fail a test, they are completely destructed, desperated, some commit suicide for that And the situation of many is not better when they start working, lot are considered like being a robot and are insanely brainwashed at giving their *soul* for the company. In the documentaryi have seen, they interviewed a young adult japanese women, she talking about the bad situation of men, worst than the situation of women in is view, they work with high level of stress for insane level of hour. What about distraction, time for family... time to live??? Im speaking of the worse, you may say, it s not like that everywhere in Japan.... your probably right but it s not only a minority that are in this situation. And other country have started to imitate them, since they need to remain competitive to be good capitalist.... Capitalism is kinda a never ending Wars system builded around money system. How many people died because of this horrible system... millions, how many suffered because of it.... billions... including war made for money related reason....to serve their interest . Capitalism is not the greatest of system it s not better than communist was. Russia is not better now than they where when they where communist, Mafia and other criminal have raised their activity, more drug more prostitution, violence etc... retired old people that loosed their goverment menetary help after the end of communism, i have also seen that in tv documentary. Some already insufficient social help disapeared with the communism.... and the capitalism did not replace it by something better, just nothing replaced it And im not saying communism was good, i say Capitalism is not really better overal,l in some area it can be better in others it s worse. But strickly about the word, communist is better than Capitalist. Communist refer to community (in common) and Capitalist refer to capital (money, to make money, to have more). The last but not the least, a tremendous lack of love are behind lot of our human trouble. Im not speaking of love related to 2 person, i speak in general. Lack of love is everwhere, usually money interest go first just see what happen in the world actually. People are ok to spend billions to kill other, but not much to help. One example, a natural disaster occur in a poor country, the country is devasted. Some country help but not with the same amount of money or effort than they do for wars.... because they think they have nothing to gain out of it. Poor X country people are starving to death... bah who care they have nothing interesting.... you see what i mean????? Your not rich, your have nothing im interested at, then i don t care about you. Here was some of the reason why i don t like capitalism. Id better like a system that is more *in common* that raise the quality of life of all people not make them fight each other for a better life. Nishiki

    IQ and Politics

    I have some comment to give, Some said that they are disgusted to see poor people using food stamp to buy potato chip or thing like that. Some are not only monetary poor they are uneducated and no im not talking math and geography. They are easily influenced by tv and other publicity of all the scrap that sell in store. And lot of them are depressed or have other neurological or mental problem, or have drug, alcool, or money gambling problem or a combination of those. Saying that some people put themselve in those bad situation and being disgusted by that , it s a very simplistic way of seing it People are disgusted by them and act with them just like they where garbage or are aggressive with them, just like i have seen in some post in this thread. I find 1000 time more disgusting to see people abusing other people. And capitalism is all about that, it did nt work without that. How disgusting is to see people being poor to the point of having problem getting food and a place to live in, all that in an very economically develloped country???.....it s very disgusting. Why should some poeple have to work indecently hard to go out of poverty and maybe they will fail to do it even with the greatest of effort. Lot of them work only to survive nothing more What i see is that we are currently in a period of negative devellopment, quality of life of lot of people are decreasing fast or are simply staying low. In my country the economic situation are so good that we almost reached ou maximum productivity according to economist. But we have more and more poor people, general quality of life is decreasing too (no work or too much work). Our last goverment said he will decrease poverty in children by 50% for years 2000 and guess what, it increased by 50%.... but the **economy** is going better and better... The level of education that is needed for good job is going high and the quality of lot of school is going down. Outdated teaching, lack of up to date equipment, 2 or 3 time more thing to learn in half the time people had 30 years back, skyrocketing cost etc... being poor on top of that is somewhat too hard for lot of people. some have ot live in the street some fall in drug or alcool abuse etc.... What about a fair system that take care of human need and problem, not one ruled by money making as the main value..... Nishiki :-)

    Ya but if somebody have for say 200 000$ of stock in oil company, he will be happy since he will get more money and the 30$ more he will spend putting gas in is car is not and issue. That mean that oil company make more profit now, and when hybrid car will be more common, they will still make a good profit with the lower amount of gas they sell since they sell it at a higher price. (and don t tell me that since the demand will be lower that the price will lower, it s like telling me that santa claus really exist And im pretty sure that oil company are already investing in many other technology that will replace gas vehicule, like hydrogen. And the fact that Democrats wish the adoption of hybrids vehicles is another reason to vote for them. Ok you did nt say joined iraq, my bad *expression here* My point here was to say that Al-Zarqawi that pledged allegiance to Osama Bin Laden can not be a reason to justify the invasion of Irak since this allegiance just happened. Bush was unable to show any solid proof of anything he said to justify the invasion. Weapons of mass destruction=no proof, link of iraq with 9/11= no proof. No fact, not even good argument........nothing! About the fact that Saddam is insane i know it. I don t need more proof about that. This is not a good reason to justify the invasion, since back when U.S. and Saddam was friend he was already insane, and U.S. knowed he was. And for being insane the U.S. as nice amount of atrocity in their history and you don t need to go back to western time (Bush himself can be qualified as being insane). They have committed both physical atrocity and economic atrocity and still do (and they are not the only one to do such thing). Also theyre a lot of other insane dictator worse than Saddam. Why they did nt choosed another one? Why it seemed to be so urgent to attack Irak, when something is urgent, they re usually a reason, and you can clearly tell it to other with good proof. But it was not the case for Iraq. As for Bush being Insane, the number of innocent killed in the death row prison in Texas under his govern is pretty high higher than with his predecessor and this is a fact ive seen it. Most of them are poor black people than can t afford a lawyer. When an organisation that help them (can t remember the name of the organisation), give em a good lawyer almost all of them get cleared of all accusation. That a fact, I don t see Bush take care of providing money to them to ensure they can get a good lawyer he do nothing about it, he keep the execution going. Yep it s your fault as much as it s the fault of the other member of U.N. my country included. U.S. could have putted their veto against it, knowing the sanction will not affect Saddam but only his population. I still think U.S.should have showed the power of the new weapons they had (nukes) before using it on people. Don t you agree that this make sense??? And btw, why do U.S. waited so long before doing something against German, he was insane, they had proof they invaded other country, U.S. did nt feel endangered by German insanity.... that s strange. If somebody know why on this forum im curious to know. I didn t compared U.S. to Nazi i don t even writed the name Nazi in my post??? When you say: And you wonder why I don't respond to your posts. Your statements are baseless, wildly overblown and without any facts to back them up. I can say that your statement are baseless too, wildly ridiculous and sometime without real fact too. Your can t even agree on fact or opinion i say that do make sense. When you say im all over the place in my way of thinking, you re right (i don t contradict myself) im not camped on one position i do my best to try to see the real thing, but im not perfect, but im not a complete idiot. I hate stupidity and i don t care where i see it. I see it that s it. My general impression after reading your post, is that you have a tendency to report everthing to money. You will vote for Bush because of the tax cut and refuse other consideration in making your choice. Will you vote for him if Bush said he will bring new tax and upper the current tax to support the war effort? Another thing come to my mind to show that Bush is insane and stupid. The fact that he refuse to sign the Tokyo act about reducing pollution. There plenty of fact about the problem of pollution even from people with Nobel prize in U.S. Again but no, he only think about money. And if you need facts on this, i have included one, if you need more, search on the web you will find a lot. I did a rapid search and see what i have found See here Nishiki

    Do i need to be an american to speak, i don t think i need permission to speak on any subject i have interest in. And i don t think that i say useless argument or stupid one. If a majority speak out and say im saying worthless argument and are able to convince me of that, i will consider putting a end at my participation. And no im not insane, the price of gas have upped, the company of gas are happy. So i don t see any value to that argument.... it s no even an argument . U.S. budgeted half a trillion dollars on lie, they lost thousand of live on lie and they killed thousands on lie. That great don t you think. Saying that Al-Zarqawi has joined Iraq mean what??? absolutely nothing they where not joined before the war. As far as i know Saddam was not a religious man, he did nt like those religious fanatic so he was not in the terrorist organisation with ben laden. You can t justify the invasion with something that happen after. Nearly 500 000 peoples died in iraq after the fist gulf war because of the restriction imposed. People died slowly of poor sanitary, lack of drugs supply, lack of food. It s a terrible way of dying , and the number of dead are not even close of the amount in the 9/11. U.S. attacked Japan to end the ww2. And they did it a very stupid way, they should have exploded the bomb on a unpopulated area near, so the can see what they will get if they don t capitulate or send a video showing the new weapon then land it in the unpopulated area if the video don t convince them.... but no they prefered to kill thousand of civilians.

    I do not contradict myself, if you think i do tell me where i did and why you think i contradicted myself. And for my far from perfect english, it is not my native language. And im not Mustafa or any other than Nishiki on this forum. As for tax i know what you talk about, where i live we probly pay the higher tax in the world if not we are close to the higher. What you describe about your inheritance tax is a stupidity and i agree that you should not have to pay that . And i understand that you don t want to vote for somebody that want to readopt this. But i don t undestand why you don t see that Bush is far worse than this guy. He send people to kill people in another country many of them where innocent civilian, and how many got their life destroyed? house destroyed, member of family killed, school destroyed etc.... Just because a guy and is gang decided to go to war for oil and to make money with rebuilding, in short for reason about money. I will quote myself You see what i mean, Bush decided to go to war without being able to show any proof to country that where asking for them and you wish to vote for a guy like that. I can not understand that. Talking about money now, how you think Bush will do to keep tax low or lower tax when spending extremely high amount of money for wars (they will probly pay a part with the money coming from the oil of Irak). But they said the oil are to Iraq people and that they will not use it (i doubt it). From where the money will come from??? Your pocket maybe??? Back on capitalism, one reason why i hate capitalism and i talked about it in my previous reply is because it s chaos. I hate the principle refering only to money value and i hate is increasing chaotic application. Just look how walllstreet work (i can t find the good translation even with a translator hope you will understand) it s chaotic, speculation is one example, a possible bad/good new or a rumor is sometime enought to change the value of a company. Another thing i hate is that people abuse other poor or uneducated to make money, they even kill them in some case like Irak. A good example is Wal-Mart the biggest company on earth. They get caught using illegal worker to save some money, they are insanely rich, but it s not enough they want to save every dollar they can, and they already give low salary, don t you find that insane, me yes. That enough for now (i have more to say but im tired now) Nishiki

    Even worse are the property tax laws that have exemptions to encourage people to move into certain neighborhoods. But they're not exemptions on low-income housing, they're exemptions on severely overpriced condos. In Portland, we have a new redevelopment every few years of a formerly industrial neighborhood. This tends to create a LOT of new "trendy" housing, which costs twice or more the metro area average for a house, yet it's usually for small condos. These condos then get property tax breaks to the point that my wife and I paid more property tax last year on our $185,000 house (a 1000 square foot, two bedroom, one-and-a-half bath house built in 1907,) than someone I know (works for Intel,) who just bought a $400,000 condo (also 1000 square feet, also two bedroom, one-and-a-half bath,) in downtown. I do agree in principle with the sentiment that there should be no property taxes (I mean, come on, the government taking a house away from a family that has owned it for decades in the clear, just because they are poor and can't afford the tax?) I do also think that if it it executed with no exemptions, it is a fair tax. It is also a steady income source for the government, good for funding things with fixed yearly costs, like schools and emergency services. (Which are the only two things I think SHOULD be funded by them.) Sadly, here in Oregon back in 1990, shortsighted voters approved the dreaded "Measure 5" that de-linked school funding from property taxes, and imposed arbitrary caps on the property taxes. This has led to school funding shortfalls and cuts every year since. I agree with you, it s in the same way of thinking as what i said before when i said im against stupidity. Taking the house off a family that become poor and are not able to pay the tax is stupid. What you expect they do.... they will rent a house and appartement that will cost more than the tax was? In the end they will live on the social security system (if it ever exist in the given country) or they will be houseless. Both are unacceptable and useless. But i think you should pay tax for the service you get like water, waste removal etc...., that should be the same tax for all house (no value based) and if a given family or person become too poor, it should not be removed his house for that, just lower the tax to a level they can afford or completely remove the tax. Having a place to stay should be a right. Even if you need to add luxury tax or something else to rich people to do so.... and even if supercaffeinatd do not think the same Now more on stupidity: Capitalism is as stupid as communism is since both system are not dedicated to create a better *way* to live, it doesn t make life easier and better for *all* people. People that are poor or in difficulty are not helped they are exploited or ignored, some exception exist. I don t see capitalism country going in poor country to help them improve their quality of life (if the country have oil or something else interesting, maybe they will go and hmmm hmmm help) , actually they exploit them as much as they can. And i personally find that disgusting. Almost everything is based on making money and helping people.......may cost money! Nishiki

    Because everyone, Democrats included, thought there were weapons of mass destruction. Even now we don't really know whether or not they were there. They could have easily been spirited away to Syria or another neighboring country well before the invasion, as Saddam was well known to keep military supplies on trucks and move them around constantly so they couldn't be targeted. Regarding the deaths of our brave troops, while every life is precious, the total number of troops lost has been quite low, especially when compared with the number lost in regular peacetime military accidents. The number has been less than half the number lost in 9/11. These are people who volunteered to be in the Military. They are soldiers. They are aware of the risks of their profession. Regarding Bush "making a complete ass of himself on public TV", I personally don't judge him based on his acting skills. I find his poor presentation / debating skills make him more believable than a guy who is so slick that he has a quick canned response to every question or situation. Bush doesn't come across as a lying sack of sh*t. What matters to me is that he'll lower my oppressive taxes and get us a foothold in the mid-east so we can counter the anti-western propaganda that has been coming out of there for the last hundred years. I don't care if he's 5' tall. I don't care if he has bad hair. I don't care if he stutters or can barely form a sentence. I care about the laws and policies that he puts into place that affect my life. At least Bush doesn't claim to talk to God and know what he's thinking... Are you that homeless guy outside my apartment building? He claims he can talk to god too.... I think i will nuke the U.S. since i think they have plan of invading the world with their new weapon of rapid invasion they are hiding in the area 51. I can show no proof of it to the other that ask me, but trust me! they have those weapon. I must protect myself so i nuke them!!!!! And after if i don t find the weapon, i will say oops!! we did nt find those weapons but maybe they displaced them in another place. Nishiki

  16. Burning paper or wood in a closed place can raise temperature higher than the temperature needed to burn the paper or wood, dunno if it can get hot enough to affect steel. Maybe a 700-800 degre celsius temperature is enough to make steel expand enough to weaken it s strenght. A mix of fuel and paper and wood etc... is surely enought to do it.

    hmmm communist now, communist is worst than capitalist because the way it was made, totalitarism was a better word for what was made and are still made in some country. But communism if done right is better than capitalist. I mean communist refer to community, capitalist refer to capital (money). A system based on community vs a system based on money. A system only based on capitalism is an horror since he only care about people that have money and don t care about the other. The way i see it, a vote for Bush is a vote for totalitarism (like communism is). Just see how Bush behaved in the Irak war, he decided alone to attack Irak and did nt care about what the other member of the U.N. thinked about it. And you say hi is acting like a democratic man? He even go as far as treaten some of his allies to make them join the war........ for oil You call that a great thing, i call that chaos, in a community we need some (notice i said some) control, you should not be permitted to insanely exploit other people like its permitted. Capitalist work this way, you need to exploit other to make money. Having 10% of the people that have 80 or 90% of the money is very wrong. Wow, now you qualify to go see a psychiatrist your are really brainwashed (you probly brainwashed yourself) You really find it funny to be *surviving* in an hostile environment. What the problem of living in good condition without having to survive, it s what development is all about, improving our quality of life, not worsening it. It a shame that there still people than have problem to find enought food to eat or water. And what about people with health problem or old people, you let them starve to death??? Lot of American actualy complain about the cost of drugs mainly because the price of the drug is not controlled, drugs company can exploit and abuse sick people since they are in your so praised free capitalism system... True since they are seeking better quality of life like all normal people are looking for. That doesn t mean they like they way your country system/goverment work. Since we are all looking for good life, why fight each other when we can do it in cooperating with each other. it s not that hard to understand that not everbody had the chance to be born in a well devellopped country or in good health, we should help them get better, not abuse them like we do now. I find your behavior look to be somewhat correct in those sentence, a little plus will be to try to understand why they are the way they are and try to help them (cure them) of this behavior trouble, not giving them money. One exception, if they are sick in any way that restrict them to work, they should get a monetary help and not only to give them a chance to strickly survive but enough to let them live decently. Everybody should be able to live decently even if it mean that someone else will not be able to afford a 3nd 500 000$ house because he have to pay higher tax. A *reasonable* income maximum should be fixed just like a minimum should be. Forget about natural selection where strong survive and weak die, it s the level of thinking of Hitler. See a psychiatrist if he is a good one (not a lot are good) he will explain you why some people are not motivated, they are not evil like you might think. And btw see the psychiatrist for yourself too, you make all your judgment on a *money* basis....... ( it may look i try to offend you, but it s not the case, im serious, i think you have problem with how you think) maybe psychiatrist is not the solution but see somebody to help you, or do it yourself, take some moral lessons read book do something asap.... Same for Capitalist, they are very highly corrupt. Capitalism IS corruption n the US, we've simply legalized "Greed" we control it. We regulate it. We tax it. In the US, the closest thing we have "good communists" are the people who work in our government sponsored, civil-servant jobs. Public school teachers, policemen, firemen, train conductors, and most "union" workers. And there are plenty of them. They bargain collectively for their meagher raises. Their jobs are very secure, unless they are guilty of gross misbehavior. So, in the US we have our own sub-culture of communism. Most of these people are voting for Kerry, by the way. The "Greedy" people, who are highly motivated, addicted to success, who would rather die in a fiery blaze of glory than live a mediocre life are voting for Bush. This is good, i wish that for everybody, secure job, good health coverage, secure job that let you build a stable life, this is good for a family, good for raising child etc.... If you call this communism then communism is good, better than capitalist and i don t see how a reasonable people can think otherwise....but are you a reasonable person??? When you say **The "Greedy" people, who are highly motivated, addicted to success **INSANE** , who would rather die in a fiery blaze of glory than live a mediocre life are voting for Bush.** People like this should seek care (psychiatrist), they have a problem.

    Hmmm Working 80h per week, and moving from place to place is not a way to live for everyone (should not be for anyone). What about people that want a family.... a stable one. What about people that want to live and not only work, there not only work in life. Having child and taking care of them is part of life. We work to live not live to work. I happy fellowi*g hate when somebody say you just have to do that or this to win more money. There not only one kind of people, not only people that only think about money, there people that have health problem than can t work 80h week even people with good health will not stay in good health if they work 80h per week. You think we should let them starve to death because they are not insanely productive and efficient..... and seeing what are your value (by reading you opinion) i see that they may have side effect to be working that hard and making lot of money. Basing your vote decision only on what is best for you (paying less) and only you and not seeing that it could be bad for other is very egocentric it s usually the way businessman think, they don t care about quality of life of other people, it s only the money...the .money, the money.... and the damn happy fellow*ng money again. You really need to start thinking on basis other than money. This economic system is insanely stupid, a professionnal baseball players make more money in one match than most people in one years.... just to swing a piece of wood a couple of time and run a couple of time in 2-3 hours..... wtf. The way the economic system work actually is violent, disgusting, immoral etc... Think about all the people that work very hard in poor country, do they get decently paid.....no. And you can t say to them look around, get a better job... there nothing else. Open your eye damnit, this money based system su*k big time. Bussiness man and some individual only think about their interest (money). One example: Bush use big $$$ to send troop in Irak to supposedly *free iraq* The good samaritan Bush (or his gang) do nothing for natural disaster that happen in other country like what happened in Haiti, he oppose to let Africa make lower cost pills for Aid. He oppose to adopt the Tokyo anti pollution act because he only think about money etc... less tax=more buy= more money for company and company act like parasite that take as much money on one side and are paying as less a possible in the other side (that why they use poor country worker more and more). If you go farther in the process.... in the end, to who they will sell the stuff if everybody as only enought money for their basic need??? Think about it their are reason why U.S. is so hated in the world. U.S. have big money to act against other but they have near nothing to help out. They are atrociously exploiting (not only US lot of rich coutry do) other and then they are surprised to see other complain and become violent!!! and they say they are evil (yes they are... but why???) Living in extreme poverty (low education, low healthcare, low accces to water etc..) is surely a good way to become desperate and insane or evil(if you you add religion to it, you have all you need) They need help not to be bombarded. Another example of the insane money thinker, the embargo after the 1st Irak war. Hundred of thousands of innocent peoples starved to death because of that (they died of lack of food and water and of various of disease caused by that). If you where an Iraqui men would you like those responsible for the death of your child or wife??? You will probly wish to kill the responsible of this insane act that affected your family and other innocent but did nothing to Saddam and is gang at all. The capitalist system is based on making as much money in the shortest amount of time... that it!!!!! Exploiting, abusing (to death sometime) is not a problem if the money flow in. And this is worsening at great speed. Giving a vote to Bush that will spend insanely in army and cut tax....and kill..... from where he will take the money to do that... he will cut in healthcare, road repair, etc i guess..... Give your vote to this liar and manipulator..... hmmmmm not good P.S . Sorry if i speak agressively sometime, could not resist...... -Nishiki

    Simple solution to mid-east car bombings.

    Registering the car is near useless, since the car is completely destroyed in the explosion (they use lot of explosive) and the car (old) in those country probly come from other country and have been repaired a lot of time (differend part number). And i don t see how i will help caugh the perpetrator, since he is dead in the car explosion. The best you can do is go see the family of the stolen car wich is.....useless my two cent Nishiki

    Remember Mary Jo Kopechne

    Who know, Ted is maybe a better person now or maybe not, but for now i know that Bush is far worse than a scum bag..... and right now not in the past. Thousand of people are dead or suffer (including American soldier and their family) because of him and his close insane collaborator. If i were an American, i surely better like to vote for a guy (Kerry) that have a member with a troubled past (Ted) than for someone (Bush) that have an horrible present and an horrible close past and he have a lot of bad member with him too. Id better like to have better choice, other than those 2, somebody with new and better way of thinking. Nishiki :-)

    Barcelona Bans "bullfighting"

    f_vp, about the amazon rainforest, i said If people destroy it for eating or making house, it is not a crime, because ive seen at tv, that some people in this region are burning forest, they are not selling the wood, they are just making space to make culture to be able to eat. And yes i don t doubt there people destroying the forest to make money. How can somebody do thing right when the intention are not right. (if your intention is just *to look* good (Rwanda) or if youre real intention are not what you say to other (Irak)) Im not sure about that but i know seal can go pretty far to eat, very good swimmer, especially if they can find food close, dunno how far. Maybe you re right, maybe fisherman kill seal because they think they eat all the fish but that in reality, it s not true. Or meaby the fish have some spot close to the shore for reproduction and seal eat them too much when they are all there. I really i can t say. But i think that my other point still stand, i don t think we can say that they are evil criminal. And don t forget that some country that are in the 21st century are thinking like people of the old age or even worse than them. Sometime dream have to be made, and i admit, sometime it look impossible to make it happen. But it s not totally impossible. I don t think that changing way of thinking is impossible. A proof of that i know that Belgium admited they should not have leaved the Rwanda, will they act differently in the future, it s to be seen. Nishiki

    f_vo, you did nt understand what i mean. Maybe it s because you misread, or maybe it s because of my poor english or a mix of the two. I never wanted to say you can kill the seal as much as you want because they will die in a way or another, i wanted say it s not all black or all white all the time. I will try to explain in the following. -killing animals if not for food is a crime (it s your opinion not a fact) -destroying the rain forest is a crime (again your opinion not a fact) What is wrong and stupid (not criminal) is to abuse of the earth (my opinion) If policeman kill a tiger that escaped a zoo, it s not a crime. If people destroy the amazon rainforest to make agriculture to be able to eat or to make themselve a house, it s not a crime, they have no other choice, they are poor an not educated, i don t think we can t say "hey you can t do that, you are a criminal" they could do it with respect of the nature, but they don t know how, and maybe they don t even know they are not doing it right. They are not the big abusor of the earth, if you want to see who abuse, look at those that have the most, not those that have almost nothing. About the million in Africa or India that are starving to death, killing them is not a solution and i never said we should do that, we better help them and we are able to do it, but we don t because .... And btw id better like to die instantly than to starve to death.... don t you? But id better like to stay alive an have a good life and i wish a good life for all. When you say "afterall many are starving to dead overthere and no one cares" That make me think of a good example of brutality and insanity. If we think about the Irak. U.S. is ready to spend hundred of billion to supposedly **free** and help the Iraq population, but when it s time to help people that are starving to death simply because of a lack of food or other problem (HIV-Malaria etc....).... where the big billions, they are nowhere to be seen. Another example is the Rwanda, they knowed (not only U.S.) the mass slaughtering was about to begin, an guess what happened, those that where there (some member of U.N.) simply leaved except one, Romeo Dallaire of Canada but not because Canada decided too, because he decided too stay even if Canadian authority ordered him to leave. He tryed to convince other to stay, he also asked Canada government to change idea , but that did nt worked. He also talked to a U.S. *general* (dunno the rank exactly) that they should stay, and is **nice** answer was: the life of 100 (maybe it was 10 or 1000) of those do not even have the value of a single american!!!! And we have no interest here. (no oil, no gold etc...) Btw, ive seen in tv report how **great** the coalition was, they where protecting oil building but did nt care about the plundering of the hospital that was near, oh yeah we are here to free you and help you Iraqi people.... hmmm...hmmm Is not this a good example of pure brutality and insanity and showed to all at tv? So around 800 000 people where slaughtered in the following 100 day and nobody except Mr. Dallaire where trying to do something to stop it. And preventing/stopping the slaugther was easier than invading Irak... and by far. They could easily stop the propaganda that caused the slaughter simply by destroying the Radio Antenna or use it to try to calm down the population and remove the insane who made this propaganda. What i understand of your reply is that you don t like to see people killing animal and i fully understand that. But killing seal to save the fish is also killing animal for food but indirectly. You kill the seal to eat the fish they eat. Frankly if i had to kill my beef myself, i probly prefer to become vegetarian with maybe the exception of fish. It s because im not used to do it. I can t say that others that kill animal for food are criminal, even if they kill it for protecting a source of food. Like killing wolve for protecting lamb or sheep or another animal you keep as a source of food. At start, the main point of this thread was about the showing of brutality for *fun* and i don t see show of seals being slaughtered for fun in Canada. Maybe some fisherman get enraged when killing seals maybe they think die damn job remover, i need the fish to sell them to finish to pay my house or something like that and make pleasure doing it, who know!!! Even in this case, i can t say he is a criminal and should be put in jail. But i don t like this behavior. Id go off topic a little and take the chance to say that the problem behind the slaugtering of seal and tree etc... is a too big appetite of some people. And it show clearly by the actual event in the world and i talked about some of them in the present reply. Lack of cooperation, lack of love for others. It s " Just take what you want and don t care about what happen to other because you do" It s possible to be very brutal without killing anybody or any animal directly. Pollution is an example, pollution of water by big mining company in a poor country is the cause of suffering of lot of people and i can call that brutality, and i could add many example. In my opinion, a solution to this problem and many other is a change of way of thinking and behavior. Actually, it s money over *all*, it s money over all other value, money is an idea (capitalist, business) that rule the world. If you think about it, money in it s use today is a stupid concept. But the money and value that come with it (brutal capitalist) are stupidly the most important thing to some people. Capitalist is about making the most money in the shortest amount of time, and people in all that, we don t care. (notice that i simplify and cut corner) In other region it s religious belief over *all* or religious belief mixed with desire of having money (money can be replaced by power). And again, people and nature.... we don t care. So a solution could be to forget about the concept of money, forget about the concept of country or religious battle, and just work togheter to try to solve problem and we have a lot. And who is the most able to do that? The mosts develloped of today country, not the underdevelloped ruled by insane. And the fisrt stage of the solution, is to change our behavior, our way of thinking and acting. Think about the movie Star Wars, they re the bad side of the force and there the good side of the force. sorry if you see error im my text, no time to reread myself. Nishiki
