FTA:  Putin has called-up reserve units of his military, which Ukrainian generals believe means he's planning to invade Ukraine, says Phill Karber, president of the Potomac Foundation, based on meetings Monday with Ukrainian military commanders.

That's hilarious. Uncle Vulvo has already invaded Ukraine. Good for Poroshenko for telling the EU to go fark themselves when they tried to get him, to extend the "ceasefire" again.

Can't these two countries just sit down and realize that despite all the political conflict that divides them, they still produce some of the world's greatest pornography? You'd think for a region so deep in top shelf pussy, the guys would have better things to do then try and out penis one another by shooting guns.

No.  Nobody cares about Ukrainians.  They've been under Russian dominance since medieval times and no one's going to war about it.

It figures that "Israel bombing Gaza" is getting lots of headlines. In the last week, they've shot plenty of rockets from there. Not to mention that Hamas kidnapped and murdered three Israeli teenagers this week as well.

apparently the Israelis have rounded up over 1,000 Palestinians in the last week, and killed five. But you need to search pretty deep in the news to hear about that.

It's tragic those three kids were murdered.

On the bright side, at least the vast majority of Russia's remaining nukes probably either don't work, or are attached to rockets that don't work, though I'm sure there are more than enough left to totally fark the world over.

Yes and those wonderful civilized Israelis decided to blow up the homes of SUSPECTS in the kidnapping. Not convicted criminals but the homes of the guys they think might have been involved. Can you imagine what would happen in this country if the police decided to blow up homes where suspects families live because they can't find them ?

I realize the 3 teenagers murder was tragic but this is not how a state with laws and criminal justice should be acting. This is the ultimate collective punishment of a people once again because of the actions of a few criminals. Israel has a real hard on for punishing the general population of the West Bank and gaza whenever things get testy

Despite all the FUD we've been hearing about Russian nukes (and especially ex-Soviet nukes) falling into the hands of someone evil for.....far too long, none of them ever has.  But, it could happen.  I'm far more worried about Pakistan's ukes, which is to say not much but that's how it is.

to be fair, the ISIS thing is news because it kind of exploded into sight fully formed and really capable.   It was a surprise to most people.  Nobody really expected the Ukranian/Russian ceasefire to hold.  I'm kind of shocked that they even bothered to try it at all.

Well, The Grammarist says:

     Lighted and lit each work as the past tense and past participle of the verb light. Both have long histories in English
     and are used throughout the English-speaking world, so you are generally safe using the one that sounds best to you.



and they provide this real-life example of correct usage:

     In September, a good portion of the Internet lighted up with the news that DMX ... was somehow unfamiliar with Google.

http://grammarist.com/usage/lighted-lit/
 
2014-07-01 02:02:23 PM  
Lighted sounds farked up even if it is accepted.
The candle was not lighted, yet it did ignite when lit.
