|Nov-30-15|| ||cormier: Francis visited a mosque in a Muslim neighborhood of the Central African Republic's capital that has been a flashpoint for violent clashes, continuing his message of religious tolerance on the final leg of his African tour.|
The visit to the mosque in Bangui's PK5 district -- a Muslim enclave that has been the site of violent clashes with Christian militias -- was a powerful gesture in a country wracked with intercommunal violence in recent years.
|Nov-30-15|| ||TheFocus: So I guess y'all never saw Stallone on stage?
His Hamlet performance would have been Oscar worthy if it had been a movie.
And I personally liked his Willie Loman. Talk about an emotional range.
|Nov-30-15|| ||Strongest Force: Every holiday, from habit, I get a sweet tooth. I have a few memorable songs representing the whole sweet array, starting with this old song.|
|Nov-30-15|| ||MarkFinan: Kanye, Drake, Lil Wayne and Eminem :https://youtu.be/eDuRoPIOBjE|
I'm guessing that basketball player in the video is LeBron James, I'm not sure, it could be Kobe Bryant or Magic Johnson for all I know... But what a song!
|Nov-30-15|| ||Strongest Force: Drifters sweet tooth.

|Nov-30-15|| ||chessthomas: now this is from 53rd Indian Premier Championship 2015,8th round Karthikeyan P - Shyaamnikhil P.
It´s on chessbomb.
black lost, yet could have delivered a very nice mate in one with 53. - Nf3! incredible finish - what a debacle!

|Nov-30-15|| ||Domdaniel: <Focus> -- < So I guess y'all never saw Stallone on stage? >|
No, but I talked to Mel Gibson about doing MacBeth. He seemed concerned to be taken seriously as an intellectual.
Stallone's best performance was in Cobra. Crap, but Zeitgeisty crap.
Note: 'Zeitgeist' is to cultural criticism as 'Zugzwang' is to chess commentary -- an obscure Z-word that serves to separate the Zlambs from the Zheep...
|Nov-30-15|| ||Domdaniel: <chessthomas> There is no such thing as a very nice mate in one.|
|Nov-30-15|| ||Strongest Force: R Kelly know how to get the young girls.
|Nov-30-15|| ||TheFocus: I didn't want to go to work this morning but I did anyway.|
But I called in sick at some company I don't work for. That should stir some things up. I know Human Resources is probably going crazy. They called me back and asked what department I work in. I said Accounting.
I stopped answering the phone, leaving a message that I could be reached on my cell phone while I was out at the doctors'. I haven't answered my cell all morning.
|Nov-30-15|| ||Strongest Force: I did not know this, until now.
|Nov-30-15|| ||MarkFinan: <Domdaniel: <Mark> In the words of another English-Irish scrapper, Tyson Fury -- "Anyone who wants to discredit my performance is just pure jealous".>|
Well said, Dom. And talking of Tyson Fury, he put on a decent show the other night. I wouldn't post a game here if I'd had any help, if there's no money in it, it just doesn't make sense! I think Dougie needs to download the app and then come back... I can't win really. I posted a screenshot of a game I beat the Carlsen app on facebook and people laughed at me because I <only> beat the age 11 setting. I post a game here and I'm a cheat!? There's a lot of paranoia in chess, sometimes me included, but unless it's for money I really don't mind losing.
|Nov-30-15|| ||Strongest Force: The following cartoon characters I knew about. This was a big hit in late 60's.|
|Nov-30-15|| ||Karposian: I think Stallone's best performance was in 'First Blood', the first Rambo film.|
Unlike its successors, which are entirely unwatchable, it's an intelligent film focusing on the hardships of Vietnam vet John Rambo after his return home.
The final sequence in the movie where Rambo breaks down in tears, remembering his fallen friends and his harrowing experiences in Vietnam, is pure gold.
|Nov-30-15|| ||Strongest Force: Aftermath of a Beatles high: marshmallows!
|Nov-30-15|| ||Strongest Force: Stones know where the sweet stuff is.
|Nov-30-15|| ||Strongest Force: Pink/Waters ask age-old question: how can you have pudding if you don't eat your meat?...hmm...|
|Nov-30-15|| ||Strongest Force: Baker's sweet love.

"Rocky": a smalltime clubfighter in Philidelphia gets a shot at the world chmpionship. "Rocky II": Apollo Creed goads Rocky out of retirement for a rematch. "Rocky III": Rocky and Apollo are now friends and Apollo trains him for a rematch after Rocky loses to Clubber Lang. "Rocky IV": Soviet top boxer Ivan Drago beats up Apollo bad in the ring, and Rocky avenges his friend and fights for country.

There's still a few in the pipeline.

|Nov-30-15|| ||Strongest Force: I went way back for this pie-fest.
|Nov-30-15|| ||cormier: If there's anything I've learned, it's that life is not lived in the black and white. We in the west, we that are progressive and tolerant in our world views, enjoying the richness that diversity adds to our lives, must acknowledge that our voice, our speaking up is the exact thing that undoes Daesh. We have work ahead of us that requires us to push back forcefully against the forces of ignorance, both in western political parties ranging from Le Pen in France to notice in the Republican Primary, as we as in the mideast with Daesh, Wahhabism, the Taliban and a whole slew of supposedly religious movements based in misdirected disenfranchisement.|
Compassion and truth must win. We must speak up - fellow Arabs, Muslims, and all citizens of the work must speak - we cannot be silent, for that choice is an acquiescence that has gone on for far too long. Our voices are what will undo the institutional discrimination that plagues many western nations; our voices will give hope to those back home that need hope and a greater vision for what is possible for themselves, their daughters, their sons, their livelihood, their vote and their voice. Our voices will demonstrate that Daesh is nothing but an empty promise disguising fear and ignorance. We stand and we continue to stand steadfast and resolute for Peace and Justice.
