The smart remarks of Robert Gates re-revisited

This is not coming to an end it seems. With the NATO informal meeting going on and not getting any support from the allies he bullied (Germany, Italy and Spain), Gates is now turning indirectly to the European public, doing some fear-talk (“what if the Taliban win?”). France decided to send some extra soldiers, Belgium 4 F-16′s and 100 supporting astaff. Diplomacy at its finest. It’s getting old and a bit sad.

The waterfall aka swimming at the edge

I never had any fear of heights, until about 10 years ago. I was in Singapore for a client and while in a meeting on the 40-something-th floor, dead tired from the long flight, something “went wrong” in the attic. No panic, but major discomfort, and it never went away. Now this really scared the crap out of me just watching.
