    It's been splashed all over the news over here, but all it tells you is what's happening now, not why they're all rioting and stuff. Someone explain...

    elections were corrupt. the incumbent party (according to a bunch of international groups) committed voter fraud, and the people are pissed.

    Huge voter fraud, the one candidate supported by the russians something-OV won by a very slim margin, but statistically his campaign team or whoever signed ballots with identical penmanship and apparently with the same pen, and over 1000 ballots were entered meaning that 100% of the population voted in this particular election (which is impossible)... there's other details.
    but the guy who lost IS the rightful president and his party color is orange or something? i dont kno that detail

    I don't think he IS the rightfull president. At least 50% or so of the people are against him. They have a schism between the Eastern and Western parts of the country, and each side vehemently opposes the candidate from the other side. I think a recount might be needed, and even with that they will probably have some violent confrontations.

    It's like that everywhere it seems. Like Puerto Rico is now battling over a vote margin of +/- 1,000 ballots. The losing side is a party supporting the US to make Puerto Rico the next state which many people do not want but the vote somehow was even.

    If we can't post political shit in the main forum you shouldn't be able to even post in here . Maybe you'll start to care about politics when they start killing all the people with latino names.

    Here's whats going on in the Ukraine.Not that I've read all these but I do try and keep up. With stuff.


    Yes Bill it's all from leftwing biased pinko commie news sources.

    Your computer alerts you whenever your name is mentioned. How romantic.

    That was sarcasm by the way.

    I know it was sarcasm, and my computer doesn't alert me but I am checking the site often tonight hoping to get some good ideas for the contest.

    What sort of a contest. A battle of wits perhaps. Will there be a half-wits category for Elan.

    Read the stickies in the main trials forum and quit insulting Elan, his post was at least as valid as Sameer's and moreso than Simon's.

    very true, well this is the off topic forum, but people have just as much of a right to tell someone to stfu as they do to talk shit (IMFHO)

    for the comp you should have some kind of debate, whoever has teh best insults wins

    PS how bout a freestyle battle actually
    i should write this in the other forum hey

    oh the photocopier post was inspired by my friend who photocopied his hand and wrote will you have my hand on it and gave it to our librarian at school
    ... maybe you had to be there (not that i was)

    Yanukovich staged the election by making fake ballots, and no one wants this guy to come to power because he's a criminal (he's a leader of a Ukrainian gang). Now everyone is waiting in front of the parliament building so the constitution gets changed, and they are also waiting for the re-election (december 26?). If Yanukovich wins, the citizens opposing him will start a riot and chaos will erupt in Ukraine.

    No his party wont start a riot, considering even the military is against him.
