  1. In the last ten years we had elven + 1 (?)* terror attacks in Belgium while we had 14 incidents during 1950-2010. And those 14 includes four of the Bende van Nijvel; nobody knows who they were and why they did what they did. So I am not sure you can qualify them as terror. https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lijst_van_terroristische_incidenten_in_België * Jurgen Conings, far right extremist isn't mentioned (yet) on the list. But then he killed himself after he fled to a national park after he supposedly tried to kill an expert.
  2. According the Russian media there is still fighting against the Taliban. Amrullah Saleh might have retaken a district in the province north of Kabul. https://ria.ru/20210817/boi-1746127613.html I think a large part of the Afghans might want finally have some peace and order. They hope accepting the Taliban will give them peace. However they will be still also a number who have been fighting against them for years and who lost friends and families because of them.
  3. That is only interesting if you also close the borders. But EU countries are incapable of doing that. They prefer to lock their citizens up than closing the border for recreative travelling. While in Belgium people even cannot go to work without a certificate attesting they cannot work from home people can spreading the virus when they travel to Greece. The Belgian government is incompetent.
  4. Jeey! 717 years after the Flemish won against the French at the Battle of the Gulden Spurs, a Flemish won a part of Tour de France! Something which makes this hideous (National) Day of Flanders better because it really sucked thanks to the fact the Speaker of the Flemish Parliament had to resign because it was reported he committed fraud in order to pay his escort girl
  5. Just read that wearing the yellow jersey is only € 500 for each day. And apparently you don't even see a lot of that money - a part of it goes to your team maters, team, ... Apparently Van Aert said to Raymond Poulidor (MvP's granddad) he was happy MvP wasn't there Dots and White still for Belgium! From a Belgian Team
  6. The days in Belgium were at least great for the cycling of the low countries - and especially for the Netherlands. Yellow and Green for Teunissen, Dots for Van Avermaet, White for Van Aert. MVP is indeed amazing - still always root a Flemish would win the competitions It was a bit boring last year to guess who would win the cyclo-cross competitions. I actually think hearing what happened the last two days would convince him certainly to take part in the Tour.
  7. Crazy day in Belgium. There were 500 000 people on the streets to watch The Tour (or more specially Eddy Merckx). Really happy Van Avermaert won the climb on the wall of Geraadsbergen - because he wanted to show something to his own people (Belgian) - and for publicity reasons. Anyway, apparently cyclo-cross is actually great training.
  8. IMO Bran would have become the KitN At the edge of the wolfswood, Bran turned in his basket for one last glimpse of the castle that had been his life. Wisps of smoke still rose into the grey sky, but no more than might have risen from Winterfell's chimneys on a cold autumn afternoon. Soot stains marked some of the arrow loops, and here and there a crack or a missing merlon could be seen in the curtain wall, but it seemed little enough from this distance. Beyond, the tops of the keeps and towers still stood as they had for hundreds of years, and it was hard to tell that the castle had been sacked and burned at all. The stone is strong, Bran told himself, the roots of the trees go deep, and under the ground the Kings of Winter sit their thrones. So long as those remained, Winterfell remained. It was not dead, just broken. Like me, he thought. I'm not dead either.
  9. It is really upsetting how the youngest (main) actor really starts to tell a whole interview how he views his character's powers and then in between adds "You know D&D didn't explain in detail his powers so this how I view it personally". I will never forget how the same actor said the reason why his direwolf died was "budget" and then Liam Cunningham went "you shouldn't say that". Go Isaac!
  10. I just meant to say that the stupidity of the show is again a result of the fact D&D just do the checklist of the events given by grrm ignoring the fact the context is important. The bells can happen also in the books and would mean something if Connington is involved however in the show it doesn't mean anything because Connington doesn't exist and Dany is never shown to be told about that battle.
