    Officially due to unexpected maintenance problems. They have unexpected maintenance problems on pipe 1 now too.

    The Russia-Ukraine War has begun

    They can play the innocent angels now: "We would really start to deliver again, but the pipe right?" What they did with that action is giving Europe a more permanent gas problem and an attempt to keep up appearance at the same time.

    The Russia-Ukraine War has begun

    Russia has a lot to gain if the pipelines are out of order IMHO. They can put more pressure on Europe that way. That we will have enough gas for upcoming winter is still not a given fact and even if we have, that is no guaranty for next year. It is the only pressure method that Russia has left...

    Do you have an Asian Buffet near your place?

    It is not uncommon over here in NL that one goes Dutch, especially when with more than 2 people. When you take a date out not so much (when clever) or if you go out to celebrate something like ones birthday a promotion or so. For instance the 6 people who live on the same floor as I do in our...

    Do you have an Asian Buffet near your place?

    In NL most Chinese restaurants are Chinese-Indonesian ones. That has its roots in the fact that Indonesia was a Dutch colony until the end of WWII. We have lots of them, some are more specialized as take aways. There you don't see much customers in the restaurant itself. Nowadays at least half...

    WTF No furry rules at adult sims

    What can you do? A sim has an owner and their rules are law. It can be weird, strange, unethical, childish, mean, grotesque, devilish or stupid, but still whatever floats their boat, their rules are law. Welcome to SL. Some clubs kick you out if you don't have a mesh avatar, some kick you out...

    King Charles III

    Greenland, Newfoundland and Iceland are not exactly more than a footnote in schoolbooks in most European countries. Most of the history taught at schools is country related. International history is concentrated around main events like major wars, the French revolution, The Roman Empire...

    Brexit.

    I know, but the Democrats in the US are also the most to the left bigger party at the same time. In NL we have several more to the left parties, who should be together the majority in the country, but they are not. So not everyone votes in their own best interest IMHO. People with average and...

    Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves

    Brave. very brave. I really hope they make progress. But it is a risky business for each person involved in countries like Iran. :cry:

    Brexit.

    Well the British voted Conservative into the PM's office last elections, and that is what they get. Trickle down makes their friends rich. People should really learn to vote according to their wallets and income. Not an exclusive UK problem of course. Here in NL it far to often isn't the case...

    King Charles III

    The people of the US get where they vote for. We, Europeans who live in a kingdom, get who is dumped in the right cradle at the right time. And if America had a ceremonial president like the UK and the other European kingdoms have ceremonial royals, it would not matter much if a Trump slips...
