.... ..... .....

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.

Ah, the spirit of Hartlepool lives on in Egypt.

Wasn't there a very similar story recently about a Falcon or something that was detained in Turkey suspected of being a Syrian spy or something like that?

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

I guess if they can arrest a bird for spying they probably don't have the intelligence to recognise it either? :D

I am losing hope for humanity now, we're doomed if this is the state of the intelligence communities in our most sensitive regions of the world.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

:lol:

I thought it was funny how one said it was a swan while the other said it was a stork. Someone doesn't know their birds! lol. To be fair though the Daily Mail have pics of the actual stork whereas the Telegraph don't, apart from the stock pic they've used to go with the story which they've picked up wrong. It's not often you see a mix up like this, that's funny in itself :D

Well, of course it's a tracking device. The bird was under "flight arrest" after robbing a bank, but flew away.  :passifier:

The Judge was hesitant to post bail…. He knew it was a flight risk once freed.

Hey, they arrested all those birds in the Columbia a few years back.
They don't call them jail birds for nothing

Miss me?
