Re: Where does it end?

Ratelband is a nutjob. Nobody in the Netherlands takes him seriously. He does everything to get into the publicity, like starting his own political party (complete failure), saying stupid things about gays. This case means his international breakthrough. :clown:

Thanks guys. A great country for seeing unique stuff. And if they don't come to you, go to them. There may be some kind of event on May 5th at Larissa, but the people there weren't sure. A mass formation won't be part of that, because only three Phantoms will be airworthy by then. The squadron will ...
