Re: Brittney Griner Sentenced to 9 yrs

No, I meant her ability to travel to other countries apart from Russia. For example the UK: https://unlock.org.uk/advice/travelling-uk/#:~:text=Applicants%20for%20entry%20clearance%20and,at%20least%2012%20months%20imprisonment.

Re: Mega-Millions jackpot at 1.2 billion

Compare this to the recent Euromillions lottery in Europe, where the jackpot hit EUR 200 mn ( ~ USD 200 mn ) cap . As a UK taxpayer, I would have received the entire sum immediately, with no tax liability as it is classified as gambling winnings ( and may well be tax exempt by legislation.). Not as...

Re: Brittney Griner Sentenced to 9 yrs

The article states three years. This conversation started because you jumped in about my assertion that the sentence was too long. Don't talk about points to argue when it was you who jumped in. The three years read like an opinion to me. I don't see any facts to back that up. Quoted in the article...

Re: Salman Rushdie stabbed on stage in New York

There is no excuse to attack someone, certainly not based on a religion. Well he insulted it and though I don't condone the act you have to understand what you are doing before you do it. I don't insult any other religion whether I like it or not. Religion is not a person - 'it' cannot be insulted ...
