    Existence of gravitational waves confirmed! Collision of two black holes observed …

    Einstein was right, but what does the big breakthrough mean? https://t.co/JA77OCfL6J via @nzherald— #Juha2016 (@juhasaarinen) February 12, 2016

    [lprent: Ah nope. Putting ropata’;”drop database “.$wpdb.”;commit;” in your name or any part of your comment won’t work. However if I see another attempt then I can assure that the equiavlent of DROP commenter ‘ropata%’ PERMANENTLY will work pretty well. ]

    • whateva next? 6.1

      except,….. isn’t that why we pay taxes, to communally own/build stuff, and be able to share that with each other?

    When the people work together, great things can be achieved.

    Sadly they’ll have little chance of actually buying the land, since the open nature of it all merely signals to the competitors what the lowest price will be, in this case $2m. But the intent was good and honourable….

    Athens correspondent Helena Smith reports that there are “extraordinary scenes” in the capital, ahead of a major anti-austerity protest later today.

    “She writes:
    The area outside the agriculture ministry now resembles a war zone after farmers – mostly from Crete – fought pitched battles with police.

    Have just spoken to Manolis Gazakis, a farmer from the district of Rethymnon, who told me:

    “We said it would be war and we meant it. The government has to understand that it is us or them.

    We are not going to back down over measures that amount to our survival. Just the taxes they are proposing would kill us.”

    The protestors are threatening to cut off major arteries in and around the city centre. Dozens of units of riot police have been deployed. Concern is such that road checks are even being conducted on trucks for fear that tractors may be hidden inside!

    Farmers, now pouring into the capital from other parts of the country, are said to be in negotiation with authorities ahead of a major rally later today.”
