If Appollo 11 was travelling at 25 000 mph how come it took 4 days given the Moon is 252,000 miles away. Did they stop off at the services

50 years ago Nixon got signal  to talk to  the Astronauts on the Moon. I can't get a signal to talk to my Mrs when I'm in Solihul

That sort of thing.

The Rwandan genocide was 25 years ago and is totally different to many of the other examples you've cited.

In what sense different Ger, as in significantly worse? 25yrs ago but absolutely current very very difficult repercussions, which are not all hidden from the public eye.

I think what he meant is that a country trying to rebuild itself possibly shouldn't be mentioned in the same breath as out-and-out crooks.

Thereís limited stuff I can say publically, but itís not out of place in this list (for that reason at least) Iím very sorry to say.

eg https://www.channel4.com/news/rwandan-man-warned-about-threat-to-his-life

Is real/current , I can share more in DMs.

This is a bizarre thing to obsess about. Trying to bring in money and investment to a recently wartorn country does not equate to support for genocide.

I'm pretty sure the Egyptian and American governments are no strangers to nefarious activities.

I'm more than happy to slag off those self-entitled, can't-be-arsed-to-stay-till-the-end-of-a-cup-final bourgeois twats Arsenal, but they've done nothing wrong here.

Pictures on twitter today from a guy showing and commenting that North stand having exterior makeover , new grey cladding and some claret effect outline.
I know all the shop and ticket office and academy are getting demolished but donít understand why they are being flattened for car parking temporarily . Why not re building straight away ?
Seems strange throwing money at north stand too .

Villa Park is getting a multi million quid makeover this summer and I dont think the shop will be bull dozed either.

I wonder what it will look like after this makeover. If we survive in the PL this season then #AnnounceTheNewNorthStand

So itís just giving the North Stand exterior a facelift or is there more going on? If the Villa shop and ticket office are being knocked down then will there be temporary replacements or online only?
