  1. marshallbrooks1 / BECAUSE HE’S BATMAN!! there’s several other things that bothered me as far as logic goes in this movie. i consider the kid making that jump a little hard to swallow. also escaping the blast of a nuke in idk like 2-3 seconds? talia (spelling idk) surviving that crash + surviving just long enough to say “i avenged my father” = corny as shit. gordon coming out of that trunk literally unscathed lol. a few others too but are just nitpicks. those are pretty much all the serious ones

  2. Shahid,You mean logic like, Terrorist is not Muslim. He has no religion(well , he had until yesterday) but Ummah is happy for A.R.Rahman. Got it.I was trying to say the same. Let both be Indian Muslim or both be just Indian. That is what I insist in my comments. Nice, we talk same language(Explicit language, just kidding ) sometimes, though i belong to category A, that you seem to despise. I apprecite entertainment value of comments by people who refuse to growup, because then they will have to face realities, which are not black and white, but complicated as pointed by Soham.

  3. Great ¡V I should definitely pronounce, impressed with your site. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs as well as related info ended up being truly easy to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it at all. Quite unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or anything, site theme . a tones way for your customer to communicate. Nice task..

  4. comptable : personne ne vous demande de sortir votre mouchoir. Comme le dit lamid, notre travailleur est un indépendant. Il doit donc probablement payer lui-même sa sécu et « les charges de toute espèce ». Sans compter qu’il ne doit connaître ni congés payés ni majoration pour heures supplémentaires ou travail du week-end.

  5. Thanks Cassie for sharing your views and to an extent I agree with you. My point is only about the fact that they should not have kept mute on the subject. Some kind of PR strategy could have been implemented to appease a HUGE section of the public. PR diasters are envitable for any big and successful companies, it is all about how you handle the crises that makes you even more successful and likeable. Having said that, whether their profits went south or sored, general public does not know because it is aprivately held company!

  6. I was going to say something about Rope. Tree. Politician. Some Assembly required, but on second thought these people, our elected public servants, seem just too childish to punish at the level the offense ordinarily dictates.representatives affiliated with the majority party in BOTH houses of Congress don’t feel they have a voice? They don’t need a voice, they have the votes!Idiots.

  7. พูดว่า:After study a couple of of the weblog posts on your web site now, and I actually like your manner of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark web site listing and will likely be checking again soon. Pls check out my web site as properly and let me know what you think.Facebook.com/FitnessGirlbr <– Take a look.

  8. Subscrevo, Ana Cristina. E não lhe podemos perdoar também por uma razão que não refere: só merece o nosso perdão quem, pelo menos, se arrepende. Eu, que não nasci numa terra de pescadores mas nasci no Porto, mandava-o para o sítio certo, mas não baixo o nível da pastelaria.Abraço.

  9. I was recommended this blog by my cousin. I am not sure whether this post is written by him as no one else know such detailed about my difficulty. You are incredible! Thanks!

  10. What i don’t realize is in reality how you are no longer really a lot more well-favored than you may be now. You’re very intelligent. You realize therefore considerably relating to this matter, made me for my part consider it from so many various angles. Its like women and men don’t seem to be interested except it¡¦s one thing to accomplish with Woman gaga! Your individual stuffs nice. At all times maintain it up!

  11. Lol. Peter Lynch correctly points to the ten separate policy papers on top of Choosing Scotland’s Future, Your Scotland Your Voice and the Draft Referendum paper.Tell us Stuart have you read a single one of these documents yet – or are you too busy writing posts accusing the SNP of not knowing what they mean by independence?

  12. I want to indicate my affection for ones generosity supporting people who really need help with that issue. Your personal commitment to finding the solution around ended up being rather advantageous and it has truly stimulated people just like me to get at their desires. The helpful information denotes a lot a man or woman like me plus to my personal fellow workers. Best wants; from many of us.
