  5. "Start with a cage containing five apes. In the cage, hang a banana on a string and put stairs under it. Before long, an ape will go to the stairs and start to climb towards the Banana. As soon as he touches the stairs, spray all of the apes with cold water. After a while, another ape makes an attempt with the same result-all the apes are sprayed with cold water. Turn off the cold water. If, later, another ape tries to climb the stairs, the other apes will try to prevent it even though no water sprays them. Now, remove one ape from the cage and replace it with a new one. The New ape sees the banana and wants to climb the stairs. To his horror, all of the other apes attack him. After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs, he will be assaulted. Next, remove another of the original five apes and replace it with a New one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous Newcomer takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm. Again, replace a third original ape with a new one. The new onem makes it to the stairs and is attacked as well. Two of the four apes that beat him have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs, or why they are participating in the beating of the newest ape. After replacing the fourth and fifth original apes, all the apes which have been sprayed with cold water have been replaced. Nevertheless, no ape ever again approaches the stairs. Why not? "Because that’s the way it’s always been around here." Source

Somalia;850586 wrote: Friday, July 13, 2012 A constituent assembly tasked with choosing the members of Somalia's next parliament will not convene on schedule, due to tribal elders' concerns about the country's draft constitution. In what appears to be a play for more political power, the elders are withholding the names of candidates for the new assembly. An 825-member National Constituent Assembly representing a broad range of Somali political factions was scheduled to meet Thursday in Mogadishu to begin its work selecting members of Somalia's parliament. But a council of tribal elders responsible for selecting members of the constituent assembly have refused to release the names. Mohamed Hassan Haad, the chairman of the Hawiy clan elders, said this is a way for the elders to exert more influence over the transition process. " Actually we have all the names ," Haad said, " but elders were saying to each other if they present the names everything will be in the hands of the parliament and nothing will remain for the elders to talk and be consulted about." Haad adds that the elders are particularly concerned about a draft constitution, written in consultation with the United Nations. In a previous VOA interview he said that elders take issue with sections granting women the right to run for high office and that the draft does not specify a capital city. According to the U.N.-backed "Roadmap" process for ending the political transition, it is the parliament that will decide whether to approve the constitution, not the elders. Haad added that the elders are getting mixed signals from the U.N. and the other signatories to the Roadmap. "They say that the elders have an important role to select better people for the next government," said Haad. "On the other hand they say we aren't doing what we're supposed to do. We don't see our role the way they see it ." A diplomatic source familiar with the discussions told VOA the constituent assembly likely will be delayed until July 22 or 23. The source said once the parliament is formed, the transition should be completed on time, emphasizing that all parties are still adamant about the August 20 deadline for lawmakers to elect a president. I don't know why the Somali people trust these greedy,immoral and illiterate bunch to decide their fate. They should be sent to North Korea the lot of them.

I recommend to you: Game of Thrones Way ahead of you on Breaking Bad ( it starts again on Sunday, can't wait to see Heisenberg return ). I haven't seen Game of Thrones (I'm thinking it's similar to Rome bar the supernatural aspect) yet but I intend to as soon as the hype dies down. By the by, have you heard of the "Chat & cut"? Larry David unveils:D

Somalia;850575 wrote: Yeah, The Wire is my favourite show, I think I watched the series a dozen times over. :eek: But I never followed through with The Shield or Deadwood, Deadwood for obvious reasons, but The Shield because it seems 'not original' like HBO and AMC differ from the rest like USA or Showtime. I don't know about Deadwood (I plan to watch it sometime in the future) but The shield is good (I mean really good). Just like The Wire, you need to watch a few episodes to be engrossed. For me, The shield comes ahead of The Sopranos. Invest and ye shall be rewarded!

By the way, I don't think I've mentioned this show before, Charlie Brooker on The Wire. :cool: I followed his recommendation for The Wire and The Shield (both fantastic shows) but I'm not sure about Deadwood

  21. Blackflash;850269 wrote: What's up with the constant denial of the existence of Somali atheists? We (Somalis) are not as homogenous as we like to claim, there has always been different cultures, religious movements and ethnic groups in Somalia and that won't change any time soon. Two words: cognitive dissonance.
  22. Aaliyyah;850263 wrote: Speak only for yourself. Unless, of course all these nicknames who claim to be atheists or seem confused are your other scripts. You are the only person that can ultimately decide what you choose to believe or not. That is a right Allah swt gave it to you, to make your decisions. After all Allah swt could have made everyone a Muslim by force, but instead you were given a mind and the revelation of the Koran. Make your choices wisely. There is no supernatural element, end of story! The natural world is much more beautiful and complex, than what you assert.
