          Some 10 thousand years ago a man died. Some 10 thousand years later scientist have used the latest technologies to reconstruct what he most likely looked like. Well, he certainly doesn't look like how Hollywood movie casters would have imagined him. Blue eyed, brown complexion, with curly hair.

              When I hear "Brits" whining about the influx of brown people, it ticks me off.

              The red areas were all colonized by the crown. There is nothing new about mixed colours in the UK.

              The hypocrisy is rife, the red areas on the map were subjugated to British rule. Did those brown peeps have a say about the invasion of the"white devil"?

              Solomon's Temple - Wikipedia

              So then lets talk about this one or think about it for a minute.

              The reason why The decision to move the US Embassy into Jerusalem is fraught with concern.

              Yes the ball needs to be rolling, in that regard the declaration certainly gets the topic plenty of attention.

              For over 50 years the proposition has been on the table so what's the problem? Why now?

                  The global celebrations are an explosion of light and sound - involving bell ringing, lighting firecrackers, and watching traditional lion dances.

                  Chinese families gather together for a reunion dinner on New Year's Eve, and clean their houses to sweep away bad fortune on New Year's Day.

                  Traditionally, kids would be given red envelopes stuffed with 'lucky money' and positive wishes on New Year's Day.
