But-but it's a good topic...

Besides the only other gay-related stuff I have for now is this : http://www.ajc.com/news/gwinnett/cro...r-1454499.html

I don't get what she "fears" about it.
Syria already has around 80 attack helicopters as it is (hinds and Gazelles), so its not like its a game changer.

It's just a shouting and accusing match for spectacles.

These would be the articles we need to think about :

That would be gay turkish porn, ottomans are not arabs, just used their script before Kemal, and ruled over them, as they did over persians, greeks, slavs, magyars and germans

Nonetheless, I also got lost with how kemalists and their predecessors, the ottomans, entered even this thread

I'm betting they're already messed up a ton of data and don't want the spotlight on the fuck up. It is metaphorically like gunning down the entire street to get one robber. The EFF is involved legally so I think its time for me to pop a few bucks in their direction.

Ohh, it gets better:

If Megaupload users want their data, they're going to have to pay

This is why the elections trends toward Kodos/Kang -- with the Dems you get kowtowing to the "pretend IP" cabals of RIAA/MPAA and trial lawyer ninnies ... a only slightly lesser evil than the GOP and their "torch the water supply, air, loot the treasury, and leave you the bill"

The 17-year-old boy, identified only by his surname Wang, was approached in an online chatroom and paid 22,000 yuan (£2,200) for his kidney to be used in an illegal transplant operation, the Xinhua News Agency said.

The teen now suffers from renal deficiency and his health is deteriorating, according to prosecutors in Chenzhou city, Hunan province.

Five people from southern China have been charged with intentional injury and illegal organ trading, including the surgeon who removed the boy’s kidney in April 2011.
already there

The surname 'Wang' is all he needs.
