I except they start fighting with each other soon, maybe even tomorrow, while ISIS will occasionaly bomb a car or a tank on both sides.

ISIS in eastern Homs are getting gradually removed and hopefully soon they will be containet in the east.

There was something about Israel entering Lebanon air space and Syria reacting with anti air defence but sadly I lost link to proofs.

In the past few years with the migrant crisis on our hands the European People's Party frequently pulled out the idea that the Fidesz should be booted out of it's members. Never went through with it. Now they threatened again, here's the result (in English):
https://index.hu/english/2019/03/21/epp_fidesz_suspension_political_communication_trick_weber_orban_media_ep2019/
Basically Fidesz said they gave up their rights in the Party temporarily also leave the Soros financed Central European University alone. This allowed the EPP not going through with the threat but also can pretend they punished the renitent Fidesz who in return can boast the solution of their problem was theirs.

So nothing of importance happens and everyone claims victory. In terms of pure negotiation, this is the perfect deal. Obviously the problem remains and continues to grow but everyone is happy in the short term.
But in all seriousness, what difference does it make if Fidesz is or is not within the EPP?

Reality - the most important subject Bernd 02/28/2019 (Thu) 09:48:13 [Preview] No. 23481 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Below you will find the extraction from the book of David Deutsch, "The fabric of Reality", which feels very appealing to my taste. What do you think about our ability to comprehend Reality in general, or about the book, if you've read it?

Now I return to the question I posed in the previous chapter, namely whether, if we had only a virtual-reality rendering based on the wrong laws of physics to learn from, we should expect to learn the wrong laws. The first thing to stress is that we *do* have only virtual reality based on the wrong laws to learn from! As I have said, all our external experiences are of virtual reality, generated by our own brains. And since our concepts and theories (whether inborn or learned) are never perfect, all our renderings are indeed inaccurate. That is to say, they give us the experience of an environment that is significantly different from the environment that we are really in. Mirages and other optical illusions are examples of this. Another is that we experience the Earth to be at rest beneath our feet, despite its rapid and complex motion in reality. Another is that we experience a single universe, and a single instance of our own conscious selves at a time, while in reality there are many. But these inaccurate and misleading experiences provide no argument against scientific reasoning. On the contrary, such deficiencies are its very starting-point.

On the other hand, appealing to authority, like how you did it with the Bible, is very Christian. And Communist (muh Das Kapital, muh Little Red Book of Mao). And Nazi (muh Mein Kampf). And Muslim (muh Koran). And all the other book cults.

>What a shit language.
I disagree. Read this excerpt from an interview by William Buckley with Jorge Luis Borges:

>... I have done most of my reading in English. I find English a far finer language than Spanish.
<Why?
>There are many reasons. Firstly, English is both a Germanic and a Latin language, those two registers. For any idea you take, you have two words. Those words do not mean exactly the same. For example, if I say "regal," it's not exactly the same thing as saying "kingly." Or if I say "fraternal," it's not saying the same as "brotherly"; [then there is] "dark" and "obscure." Those words are different. It would make all the difference--speaking, for example, of the Holy Spirit--it would make all the difference in the world in a poem if I wrote about the Holy Spirit or I wrote "the Holy Ghost," since "ghost" is a fine, dark Saxon word, while "spirit" is a light Latin word.
<Asomo?
>No; they're not exactly the same. And then, in English you can do almost anything with verbs and prepositions. For example, to "laugh off," to "dream away." Those things can't be said in Spanish. To "live down" something. You can't say thoose things in Spanish. I suppose they can be said in German, although my German really isn't too good. I taught myself German for the sake of reading Schopenhauer in the [original] text. [...](Unrelated talk about Schopenhaeur)
<Do you write your poetry in English or Spanish?
>No, I respect English too much, I write it in Spanish.
<Do you personally pass on the translations, or do you simply entrust them to people like Kerrigan or di Giovanni?
>No, I have people like Alistair Reid, di Giovanni, and Kerrigan, who are greatly better than I am at my texts. And then of course in Spanish words are far too cumbersome. They're far too long. For example, if you take an English adverb, or two English adverbs--you say for instance "quickly," "slowly," and then the stress falls on the significant part of the word. Quick-ly. Slow-ly. But if you say it in Spanish, you say "lentamente." "rapidamente." And then the stress falls on the nonsignificant part. And all that makes a very cumbersome language...

I know this is a comparison between English and Spanish, but I think the juxtaposition of the languages help show that English is not as bad as its reputation and definitely not a shit language. And for post-classical times, English is unmatched in its quality and quantity of literature, so something must be working for it.

I'm not sure if he is really Finnish but we see indo- languages a little differently. I'm also not sure if I agree with his judgement because, yes, English works fine and can be learned relatively easily - the reason why lots of people here don't speak English is because they don't make the smallest effort to learn it despite one language is mandatory in schools and the most popular choice for three decades now is English.
>English is unmatched in its quality and quantity of literature
Quantity perhaps, but it's hard to judge in quality since native English speakers rarely enjoy literature in other languages. Also some snobby Oxford fuck opinion can be disregarded safely. He also most likely just reads works of French or German writers and poets at best.

English speakers not knowing a second language is only a recent phenomenon. And the English language has been a dominant literary language for many centuries. As for Borges, he was an Argentine author and could even be considered one of the most important authors of the twentieth century. He also read literature in Spanish, English, French, German, and Italian (plus Anglo-Saxon and Old Norse). As for the quality of English literature in comparison to others, I think Shakespeare should be sufficient to set it above the rest (post-classical); "the remarkable thing about Shakespeare is that he is really very good — in spite of all the people who say he is very good."

"Murderous villains" can't be extroverts they mostly hide their nature, even for those who seem to be social that is just an act which they use to manipulate people so they can reach their own goals. No?

No, extroversion mostly refers to people who happen to be more social or have an easier time reaching out to people. Most people have secrets or information or underhanded motivations they'd rather keep to themselves. Extroverts just have an easier time filling in conversational gaps while introverts would just rather not, or they just can't. For example, there's Ted Bundy who managed to have a healthy social life and professional career even while being a killer. Compare that to someone like Ed Gein who was remembered as reclusive and strange. A social killer is as extroverted as a social person since both can hold secrets and may engage in social behavior for underhanded purposes (i.e. the social person may cheat on a spouse or maybe they have a disease they can't bring up in polite conversation)
Also someone here got Mao and the test classified him as an extrovert.

>The first act of the new president was to rename the new capital into the first name of the old president.

That is pretty strange move. Of course it is Central Asia and this is cultural trait for them, but Kazakhstan is uncommon Central Asian country. Kazakhstan has somewhat good economy, so Kazakhs rarely migrate as workers compared to Tajikistan/Uzbekistan/Kyrgyzstan, where half of population resides in Russia and other half in Moscow. Kazakhs also relatively educated and cultured compared to their neighbors. Country is more or less civilized, and they had typical Central Asian dictatorship but without personality cult and all this religious thing like in Turkmenistan.

And when they rename city it does not fit into overall image.

Interesting fact: Kazaks are only nation in region that really use Russian language as main language, not as just lingua franca. Sometimes they know Russian better than own language. Nazarbayev, may Allah bless his soul now, often used Russian when addressed government on meetings.
Other Central Asians speak Russian too, but mostly have funny accents and not good when discussion is complex.

Tl;dr:
Old dude gathered bout 3500 subspecies of fruit bearing trees from around the Carpathian basin. Apples, pears, apricots, cherries, peaches, plums, medlars, sour cherries can be found on his orchards, on about 10 hectares. Only from a specific region he preserved 400 pear types - for comparison in the 19th century's France, André Leroy botanist described 700. The oldest subspecies from his orchards are mentioned as early as the 12th century. Probably several hundreds are those types which the last specimen only preserved by him.
Every subspecies were selected for different reasons. Some were better to dehydrate, some gave better pálinka, cider, jam or vinegar, some kept better during winter, some better for diabetes, for stomach aches, or just simply they ripened in different times so fresh fruits were available longer.
He also talks about how the countryside was destroyed. The homesteads and villages. It's all the product of the last 70 years. Bolsheviks deported half the communities, they pushed the peasants to the towns, made workers for industry. Then the rest were forced into collectives, their property was taken, communized. After the regime change the agriculture was dismantled, orchards were cut, pastures were abandoned. Now we eat the filth from Europe. They subsidized the liquidation of the agriculture. Even today new regulations are put into force which put more burden onto those who want to build something instead of destroying. With the projects of the Union culture can't be built, only with freedom.
He tried to apply for a project, financed by the EU. Two bureaucrat came to evaluate if his orchard can get support. They said these trees ain't growing the way they should. He replied it's an [insert obscure subspecies], how should it grow? They haven't even heard about it. Fun.
He also distills wide variety of pálinka.
