The Danish contestants are really fun, but the Russians are probably going to win - they are the chorister equivalent of Ivan Drago. The Hungarian girls are the hottest.

I'm reading a textbook on Semiotics.  No, I don't know why I'm doing this anymore than you folks are.  I guess I just wish I could go back to school.  There is so much I don't understand.
I've given it serious thought. I must scorn the ways of my family, and seek a Japanese woman to yield me my progeny. He shall live in the lands of the east, and be well tutored in his sacred trust to weave the best traditions of Japan and the Sacred South together, until such time as he (or, indeed his house, which will periodically require infusion of both Southern and Japanese bloodlines of note) can deliver to the South it's independence, either in this world or in space.  -Lettow April of 2011

Raz is right. -MadImmortalMan March of 2017

Ok, done with Cobi tanks for now. Unless the StuG-III comes back, or the SU-85. Or the KV-1 or KV-2.

Were there any political shenanigans?

Yeah, the crowd began to chant for independence after one of the performances, and the Catalan TV cut them off  :lol:

EBU warned them about not having political shenanigans in the broadcast, and they were very eager to please them.

Roomba are cool in theory.
But the problem with cleaning is taking stuff off the floor and putting them somewhere they're meant to be. Not the actual hoovering. That bit is easy.

I think I'll go with the Neato Botvac D4 instead. :P It has mapping. Although I am not a fan of the shape of it.
