    @Rich Grogan since the "nothing" exploded. if you really wanna be so christianic, go read the ILU ASHERA (is one of the socalled apokryphs; the parts of christian mythology that didn't make it into the big book or got deleted out when the book got translated into "for everyone") and whilst reading that, keep in mind that "GOD" is only a very ancient term for "BIG BANG / UNIVERSE". it doesn't have a gender, it is _everywhere_ at the _same_ time, it _knows everything_ and all the stuff that your beloved J.C. said & did suddenly becomes reasonable, like, "i am not the only inborn child of god, we ALL are", or "the _light_ of god is in every stone, every grass", or the fact that he ~made the blind seeing~ (which just had cataracts) by healing their eyes with his socalled "haziz-oil" (ganja-oil, weed-oil, marijuana-oil, hash-oil), or that he "walked over water" by using the far-east ninja's technique of simply tying buckets below his feet. you'd know all of that if you we're a true christian, a real _christ._ idk if you ever have even read the bible at all, but i have, before i was 10 years old. remember the part where J.C. dissappears when he's about ~12 years old and then the story suddenly goes on where he reappears as a ~30 years old? guess what he did in these 18 years. for actual scholars of the matter, it's no secret that he studied in monk temples in the himalayan mountains. there he learned all the stuff. he didn't do _any_ socalled "wonders" until he came back from there, as you might remember if you've ever read your veryown ohsoholy book. wanna keep talking, maybe want me to link you the part where it's declared that sex between _man & man_ is absolutely okay, just not the sex between _man & _*_boy_* ...?

    getting a cure for HIV is a powerful concept, often spoken of the HOLY GRAIL of HIV research.Although effective anti-HIV drugs have transformed HIV into a chronic manageable condition you live with,rather than die from- taking life-long therapy is a very different proposition to being definitively cured. i put it to the whole human race that there is an affordable , scalable HIV cure that worked as well as would put the global eradication of new HIV infections within reach, while also transforming the lives of those now living with the virus. given the effectiveness of this drugs in both treating and preventing HIV infection, i will say to everyone reading this , that i am a living witness to it. unlike fraudster and online scammers who will play you and leave you frustrated with lose of money and hope, this drugs cost less and it is worth a try. if you are interested in getting cured of your own illeness, Below is the communication link of the doctor who has the new medicine which i took that got me cure. Dr wise. call or whatsapp him on +2349063191711. BEWARE OF FRAUDSTERS ONLINE

    Partially correct, the Soviet government did have some say in the policies that the governments in the Eastern Bloc employed. But at least the flags flying in East Berlin were German flags, while British, American, and French flags flew in West Berlin.

    Should that land become part of Germany, it would likely to also extend EU water around there, leading to fishing and drilling rights under the various EU and EEA treaties. While Germany may not have much interest in fishing and oil drilling, Norway is and they have the incentive to go fish and drill there, so there is some pressure.

Which was kind of weird, seing that the German Democratic Republic ceased to exist in 1990 and the Sowjet Union in 1991. What was weird about it, you ask? Well, the 10th Correspondence Chess Olympiad ended in 1995.

They have since adopted a flag and a coat of arms.
