CD3WD Archives The Info Necessary To Rebuild Society @Eric Geller: It reminds me of the OLPC project, straight from the ivory tower of MIT. It lacks a sense of priority... where the industrialized Western world thinks that so called 'third world' countries will do ok if tech is thrown at them. Imo it's an arrogant attitude, and an attitude that says that if we give them tech first, then everything else will follow. "So you're infrastructure is down and disorder is everywhere and there's no food or fuel.... @Eric Geller: More like a monetary problem. I don't know about that.

Ciasto na mące z ciecierzycy jest nieco bardziej wymagające jeśli chodzi o lepienie, ale jest to jedno z lepszych ciast na pierogi, jeśli chodzi o kategorię ciasta bez mąki pszennej. Smakują rewelacyjnie, w szczególności z sosem pesto przygotowanym w polskim wydaniu - na bazie oleju rzepakowego i natki pietruszki.

Pioneer Thinking - Reflexion de Pionnier - Pensamiento de Pionero This Is TheBlaze’s Point-by-Point Sandy Hook Conspiracy Theory Debunk Was Adam Lanza really the only shooter at Sandy Hook Elementary School? Why are there supposed inconsistencies surrounding the weapons that were used during the attack?
