Re: New racing technique

Yes, it is a both effective and funny looking technique. A diagonal stride without gliding. Cross-country skiing was originally called "skidlöpning" ("ski running") in Swedish, so this new(?) technique is back to the roots.

Stockholm terror attack 2017-04-07

The recent so-called terror attack in Stockholm, perpetrated on 7 April, has been revealed to be yet another terror hoax, just like the attacks in Berlin, Munich and Nice last year. The "terror attacks" seem to be part of a traveling circus. One can wonder where its next stop will be. Here...

For another debate, but it seems too improbable that all the religions just happened by chance.

Re: The Holmenkollen organist

Just because some conspiracy theories are wrong and that people are gullible, doesn't mean that there are indeed big secrets or conspiracies. I suppose a "not" is missing right between "are" and "indeed", or am I wrong? On a massive scale too. Just take religion. All o...
