I gotta get down to Virginia for their test ride session. If I go, I'll report back.

Default Re: Aiming and Islam

The word assassin comes from Hashishiyun, a cult group of suicidal Islamic followers of a semi-religious, semi-political figure who lived somewhere (unknown exactly where) in the middle east called "The Old Man of the Mountains" during the third crusade. He drugged his followers, (probably with opium but the word Hashishiyun is because of hashish obviously) and convinced them of their martyrdom upon death.



They terrorized political figures throughout the middle east, both Christian and Muslim. Saladdin supposedly made concessions to him.



Sound familiar?

Someone had to bring my great leader Mao. What has this to do with politics?

I love it in my gas guzzeling SUV's and I think it's a good idea in theory for bikes. If it's non-intrusive for normal riding then only kicked in under drop the anchor panic stops it'd be great, however the '02 R1150RT I had for a short while had no lever feel at all under light braking so you are forced to squeeze harder until the power assist stepped in and went to full on. Pain in the ass and very difficult to ride around till you got used to it.

That wasn't in the movie, Salahdin let Orlando Bloom live because he had shown mercy to the prince and his father, Liam Neeson was an honorable man.



Are you making this up or what?

Those who don't study history are doomed to repeat it.



I guess they left the chapters on the Middle East out of the history books at Yale and Harvard.
