geek: I just thought I would check in to see what people are thinking about Nth Korea at the moment, as we seem to have one unpredictable force facing off against another unpredictable force.....while the rest of the world is powerless to stop it.

ziggysdad: Just remember that one unpredictable force is a certifiable nut job, while the other one is an eccentric billionaire (certifiable but job) who happens to command the military of Australia's strongest ally (an ally that co-operates Australia's military base

ziggysdad: Anyone else read that North Korea has threatened nuclear attack on Australia for alliance with the US?

Peter: Morning all. It will be most interesting to see what happens with NK in the coming weeks. Let's all hope it's nothing.

token: I think the question is, IF North Korea CAN do anything. Do they really have the capability? and if so, to use it would be certain death of their Nation. They get a nuke off, and they are repeatedly nuked to pieces.

Jay: Hi all - my BIG prediction - NOTHING will happen!!! But, maybe, just maybe, the NK Generals will deliver their leaders head on a platter to the West!!!

Yes I do think he is showing others that he means what he says he will do. Before he was elected one of his policies was to defeat ISIS. The attack on the Syrian air base was just a chess move he made within 24 hours the Syrians were already flying out from that base again as I dont think there was a lot of damage done to the airstrips. With this one move he sent a strong message and also got some of his previous critics on side. He may have lost some of his former supporters but it is a small price to pay.
Hi, I fail to understand silver, it is more plentiful than Gold as far as I know, and it was in big demand when we used to take pictures on film, the film industry was the major industrial use for silver...and that has gone so I don't know what dives its price any more, surely it is more than the fact people like the look of it.
Maybe I'm biased against silver, from working in the electrical industry. You see when I was an electrician we had a fault that used a few expensive fuses intermittently. We use to throw the fuses in the bin but noticed people scrounging the fuses out if the bin....as far as I was concerned they were blown and of no value, until we figured out people were getting the silver foil out of them....so we decided to collect all our blown fuses ourselves and maybe pay for Christmas drinks with the proceeds. So through the year all the fuses went into a collection bin and the idea became very popular, so popular I'm not sure all the fuses getting put in the bin were actually blown! So with Christmas a week or so away we set out to get the silver out of these fuses and melt it down for scrap to have our Christmas event.....but after nearly a days work and hundreds of fuses we ended up with just enough silver to cover the bottom of a breakfast bowl....I estimate about three or four dollars worth! Give me Gold over silver any time!
I see silver as small change when you want to make small exchanges! I would not want to pull out my gold for something small!

For sure BCE it is an amazing thing! Can you imagine a large scale event? Its actually scary how people respond, first just getting through it, then disbelief, then anger "Somebody should be doing something about this!!!", instead of being the someone who does do something about it. We have lost our resilience and fortitude something that generations past probably had in abundance!

Thats really interesting Fei, I am finding it rather confusing! Especially this statement
“It looks like everybody is making a grab for the islands there, so we better live on those that are still vacant,” he told reporters during a televised visit to a military camp on the western island of Palawan, near the disputed Spratly group, on Thursday.
Wow Joey! The generator would be enough to drive me mad. I like to have earplugs stored up for things like this as sleep for me is essential. Buying 12 bottles of milk at a time is pure selfishness as it leaves less for others and there should be some limit imposed on how many you can get. Keeping cool in such heat is also an issue. Recently the Circus was in town and I knew it was going to get really hot in there and being a prepper I came prepared with a bottle of made up Staminade, one of those paper hand fans, and a hankie to wet and put around my neck. Yeah I may have looked ridiculous wafting a fan in front of my face but the lady next to me was quiet happy to have the breeze as well. The wet hankie really did cool me down a little even though I was sweating but the Staminade stopped me from getting any headaches from the heat. I was the only one in the place who had a fan.
Those paper fans or even ones made from cloth etc are a great investment and not expensive. You can by cooling mats and neckties that you soak in water and they have something in them that swells and keeps the water in. There are those cooling towels and clothing as well.

Thanks for that Paranoia, I can see how it has become commercialised and why you would feel disrespectful to attend. For me though I go not draped in flags etc but to stand and honour the vets marching past. We can teach our children to show the right respect.
