    Catalan thread continued

    Oh thanks, now I understand it better.

    Catalan thread continued

    How could he be charged for rebellion? I guess that only would happen if there is a new EAW and this other country considers there has been rebellion, no?

    And now Llarena jas just decided that he won't extradite Puigdemont for the funds issue.....

    So then if there is extradition he can't be judged for rebellion while the the others who are in Spain in preventive jail apparently will, right? Possibly facing 30 years versus him facing nothing or just some? (I've read contradictory versions in several newspapers, all they seemed to agree that the charges are very different from rebellion, the maximum number of years I read for the funds' issue was 12 and the minimum zero). (Sorry, that was what I was referring to). So then the only possibility is that Puigdemont would travel to a country in which they decided that rebellion exists there and extradite him? What if he is never extradited and remains, let's say in Belgium? Then the only possibility of facing prison I guess it is returning to Spain? I don't know if they'll insist, they are probably thinking of which is the best way to make him go to prison, I suppose.

    Oh yes I agree with that. Apparently today they sad that Llarena, the Spanish judge, might change his mind about the extradition of Puigdemont if it's only for the funds.

    What are you listening to Ventiquattro - Dont let Life pass you by.

    Today I was listening to a little bit of good pop....

    Given the recent news, I thought it was appropiate to keep this thread up to date. The Members of the ex-Government of Catalonia in preventive jail have been moved to a Catalan prison. Puigdemont will not be extradited for rebellion, since the German judges don't see that there was rebellion the 1st of October, contrarily to the Spanish one. Scotland will say something in August. However, Puigdemont could be extradited for misappropiation of public funds. This means that theoretically, the ex-Members of the Catalan Government in jail will probably face 30 years of prison, while Puigdemont and the others currently living in other countries might face 5 or less for the same actions.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    I agree...
  9. So then it's as I suspected. From the start the game has lots of possibilities to offer sidesplitting stories based on itself. And I still think they'd be worth reading if properly narrated. Or at least that's the effect it has on me. Not a gamer, but I also suspected it was the case more or less, thanks for explaining it more thoroughly, though! bah, then it was just a cool name, but not the panacea I expected it to be!

    Lost in translation: movies/series

    I completely agree with the changes in songs. In the case of Frozen, might I say that there are two versions of it, the one in Castilian Spanish actually mantains the literal English translation. Not that the other changes the meaning much. (I just happen to have listened to the main song of Frozen in many languages, even those that I don't understand )

    Uh Oh for Paleo

    That's something that happened to me as well. When I avoided like 80% of the junk food I used to eat apart fromthe healthy one that I have never stopped eating regardless of my weight (in my case pastries and crisps and I never eliminated them completely), I started having digestive problems, not being able to eat them, not even in very small portions. And also...it was worse if eaten in the evening. Up to the point that I could not eat a pizza in a restaurant without feeling pain in the stomach later. Part of the reason was also....or I suspect so.....having stopped consumming oils and added sugars almost completely or at least 5 days per week. I supposed that this could be related to the flora, apart from the decreased size of the stomach. And also, that I tend not to eat oils that are not pure olive ones. for instance in the crisps I eat now, but then I made no distinction. Now that unfortunately I have gained a little bit of weight again even if still being slim, and started eating those types of unhealthy food in larger percentages again, (even if still eating healthy food), I don't have those stomach ache problems anymore or not as frequently..

    Uh Oh for Paleo

    Agree. I agree with that. Although from my experience eating fats doesnt make you less hungry, while proteins absolutely do (however I do recall that the healthiest the fat was the less need I had to eat more compared to bad fats....while still can not be compared to the effects of pure protein). But that's just my own experience. And I can't even say it completely because I've never been on a paleo diet or another one that excluded some types of foods, or any other that induced ketosis due to the practically almost exclusive intake of proteins; I've never get rid off any type of nutrient in my "diets", but mantained all of them. I've never been on a "diet", in fact, any type of imposed restriction would simply not work for me if I want to lose weight, on the contrary. Conversely, an acknowledgement of which type of foods cause me to gain weight and reducing them while increasing the hours of exercise has always been my own approach, with successful results if I adhered to them with discipline and I still gave me the pleasure of eating a pastry/crisps once or twice per week. So, from my experiences, I have observed my behaviours related to being hungry and related them to the type of meal I had had before, and thus, I acknowledge the effects of proteins. In my case, another aspect I relate to being or not being hungry, is the more "junk food" I eat in general terms. The more of them I eat, the more hungry I am, and in this case, contrarily to proteins, the effect is obviously caused more for the consumption of sugars, or a combination of salt in crisps plus sugar/lots of carbs. And yes, fats also have played an important role there. Might I say that this is caused, at the same time, like the majority of people that loves food, due to having anxiety/stress, which causes me wanting to eat more these types of food to gain gratification of some sort. From then on, it's just a vicious circle. The more food of these types I eat, more "really hungry" I'll be, the more weight I'll gain, the more easily the speed of gaining weight will be, and so on. I agree with the breakfast thing up to a certain point. Yeah, an average breakfast (or even not very large) can help you lose weight but I would not suggest not eating it or eating just small portions for healthy reasons. As for the lots of small meals I absolutely agree. There is no need for that. One can keep weight or lose it only having three (or four) per day instead of the five or six ones recommended. But I completely understand the reasons behind those recommendations. They can also work.
  13. This is exactly what this game lacks of, no? I suppose they don't start having these kind of conversations xd. Seriously, you should write the stories when you finish this game. After all, the basis for humour is there with those "people" and their behaviours. Seriously, it's so hilarious to read...everything that happens! Mmm, to your questions, yeah they definitely rang a bell to me, but the amount of civilisations and events occurring in such a "short" span of time it's a little bit confusing! I can't help but pity that poor system. Why didn't anyone else...give them food? Didn't they have other allies or anything to offer in exchange? Knowledge? It's so sad. Ok, this is interesting. What are you waiting for upgrading your fleet? Wormholes sound scary as hell, they can arrive at any time! And reverse engineering? Again? And from those, from previously defeated fleet? Have you considered the possibility of a trap? It can't be as easy as doing reverse engineering again. I'm seeing problem coming.... (apart from legal ones, maybe you can find a lawyer from those remains of Bos'Pachtux civilisation saying that this is not permissible even during war times ) (I have said nothing....just that, obviously, a certain TV series came to my mind....). Ok, looks like you know what you're doing in terms of weapons, so don't take into account what I said about reverse engineering . However, you might invest more in developing new ways of driving faster. Ok, and here the comments of a non-expert gamer end for these days/week...... too busy too comment more. (am I a gamer?....well....I used to be one!). Keeeep going! And document your failed strategic points.
  14. This game is hilarious. As long as your priority is relying on engineers and scientists to improve your weapon industry, there's nothing to be afraid of. If the others don't do the same....of course. If they did it would just be the end of the galaxy.
  15. I watched this one a long long ago, so I barely remember the subplots, but I do remember the performances, somehow. Yeah, agree. A really good return for Julian. Doing what he really likes doing. And in terms of showing the soldiers' emotions I think they did a good job in these episodes, in the first part setting the circumstances of each of them so as that we can get to know their backstories, and in the second, with the ending of that historical episode of the "Last of the Philippines" and the absurdity of the circumstances, but not because of that, less risky for the ones involved.
