Not to derail the cyberbullying....
but does anyone know of a good resource for audiobooks?
The answer depends on how much emphasis you put on legality and which language you're looking for and how many audiobooks you'd like to have...
Personally, I really like http://www.audible.com/ (though I used the German site, but AFAIK, they have the same resources, at lead I could also access English audiobooks through the German site)
It has a subscription plan which makes a lot of sense if you want at least one audiobook per month. Again, I only know the German prices, but if anything, it should be cheaper elsewhere. Here you pay €10 per month which gets you one audiobook of your choice. On top of that, the price of any additional audiobook you purchase is cut off at €10.
If you want less than one per month, or you don't like the idea of a subscription, Audible is still a great resource, but you might also want to look at iTunes for price comparison.
If you don't believe that the people involved should get paid, there are of course lots of alternatives on the web which are probably not entirely legal in most countries, but I guess I could help you with that as well...
Thanks. Audible seems like a good option.
For the classics of course, public domain websites are great, but since it's mostly a voluntary service, the quality can really vary.
Some of you may remember Veronika and her polar bear hat. Here is Vivian with her own hat...and eating a bun.
Now that's cute. But... a penguin hat? Is that wise? I mean, penguins are almost as awesome as polar bears, but - aren't penguins and polar bears, like, sworn enemies and stuff? We don't want any conflict there, I mean...
In other news: awesome - in the Saarland election the FDP got 5000 something votes (no, not forgetting a zero), giving them a respectable 7th (!) place .
Pff - my three year old knows more about polar bears and penguins than you!
Your 3 years old should spend more time on the internet
Even better the Piraten Partei managed to get 35.646 votes (7,4%) in the Saar, but unfortunately Die Linke managed to get 77.612 votes (16,1%) which is fortunately 5,1% less than they had in the last elections. The Greens just squeaked into the Landestag with 24.248 votes (5,0%).
Wikipedia article for the election, with graphs Voting results from the Statistisches Amt Saarland
As a certified Linke voter, I'd switch fortunately and unfortunately around
I'm so bored, I have been editing wikipedia
I thought it's about time someone edited the godawful English wikipedia article on Eintracht Braunschweig:
Today I did the info box, honours, added the European record, Notable former players and manager history.
The text is still the old one.
How can you vote for them? They're the incognito SED
Respect man, the new sections look good.
No, they aren't. And they are pretty much the only party in Germany with a program I can identify with, although I despise Lafontaine and Wagenknecht. I have voted for them in every single election (national, European, state, local) since I reached voting age.
Added some more stuff - if anyone sees any mistakes let me know (the history part wasn't written by me, except for the first paragraph now, and I will go over it as well soon).
Which policies of theirs do you agree with?
My biggest disagreement with their policies is in their ideas for the economy. Keynesian ideas haven't worked in the past, and they've been abandoned for a good reason. I don't think theirs a way to successfully plan an economy and that it will just lead to stagflation like in England and the US in the 70's. Wage and price controls are no good (I do support the idea of a Mindeslohn) but the Market should be allowed to set its own course. I do however like their idea for increasing taxes on high earners and that taxes should be progressive.
The biggest thing that really prevents me from supporting them is history of the party and the history of some of their leaders/members.
They've had 40 years to make their ideas work and they ruined a country in the process, not to mention the individual misery that came with all that, so yeah, let's do that again.
Can't find the way to the goal?
Democratic socialism, solidarity economy, nationalization, direct democracy, feminism, pacifism, the whole bag.
That's a red herring, that the usual suspects (*cough*namingnonames*cough*) bought hook, line and sinker. Contrary to what they might think, the party isn't run by Zombie-Honecker, and they don't plan starting East Germany 2.0 either. My family left East Germany in the freaking early 80s, when it was still, you know, somewhat difficult, and yet they don't share the ridiculous fear of "commies" your average kool-aid drinking Southern German square has.
Aww, that's just the cutest thing!
With all the Polar Bears and Penguins running around, Minnesota really must be as cold as they say.
We have just had the craziest two years of winter. Lat year was awful, and thi winter...wasn't even a winter. Hardly any snow and I think I heard that over 75% of our days were above normal. Of course, you never know with this weather as it is not out of the ordinary to get some snow in April. But...I'll take it.
F96 sighting in YA
She's back on the H96 forums as well and the NT too.
On a random note, I just picked up my old Game Boy and played through Super Mario Land twice in order to get to the hard mode. Still a fun game, even 23 years after it was published.
