    Whomever made that obviously doesn't know what he is talking about. Action in the Bible is far more diverse than just that circle. Acts itself goes around much of the Mediterranean basin from Rome to Jerusalem.

    But Acts is the aposthles, not Jesus or Yahweh or Allah. Although yes, the circle is too small.

    Someone had to give them the ability to speak the various languages of the Mediterranean though.

    But the holy ghost did it before Jesus ascended.

    Technically, Jesus is the Holy Ghost. You know, the whole Trinity business.

    Hardly. Would you ever say that your arm is technically your leg?

    Shear stress causes cells to react in a manner of ways. There are a few types:


    Seen in small vessels.


    Seen in large arteries due to cardiac contractions.


    Rare, seen usually only in disease states.


    Need to burn this into my mind.

    Interesting. Does serial killing mean having killed 3 or more people?

    I expected Germany to have more, actually. Iirc after ww2 for some decades it was sort of free-for-all for killers in many regions there (including west Berlin of course).

    As for Japan and Italy: is that including mafia/yakuza hitmen?

    They already had two mass serial killers. One a monarch, and another some guy from Austria.

    Have to suppose this is a joking pic, right? -RD thread, though.

    (not that i can verify if even in those cylindrical maps the positions are based on something accurate, but what is the point of having that arbitrary symmetry point, moreso keeping it "the same" for a universe as it is for anything else there up to and including our unimportant speck of a planet which can surely rotate to hell and back and still fit in any such forced perspective? ).

    That's pretty astonishing Kyriakos. Can't be right. :hmm:

    Curiously, some of the lowest countries in terms of costs of living are also, coincidentally, the countries that are also poor as hell.

    it's about cost of human labor, which varies between countries while most other costs stay the same. if you are rich, your labor is pricy. if you are poor, it's cheap.

    i think you'll also find that countries with higher inequality have lower costs of living. it's mostly about how rich/poor people are that sell their goods on a local market, which is typically the lower class.

    another factor is land price, which is geography and pop density related.

    If by chance you (mockingly) refer to the religious bit, then i want to have it known that i respect all religions and their homophones of propheteering.

    Don't forget that you are speaking to sects and schematics there, for those 'christians' do not accept the ORTHODOX view of the filioque. :jesus:

    Link to video.
    I went there alone with the tender age of 16 - no problems and I felt soo mature and independent. And for some reason I remember a very sweet black voluptuous woman selling me a tasty sandwich. Hail! Hail!

    Was this just created to mock Denver? It actually has the smallest number of passengers of them all.

    @Kyriakos, sorry, didn't see the astronomy post (interesting too), was referring to the serial killer post.

    :D

    I suppose they count/feature organised crime more in some places (Italy with the mafia and terrorist groups in the past, and Japan with the yakuza), and in others there are possibly less stats, although iirc some list i once saw had few euro countries with more than single-digit identified as serial killers.
