- I do not qualify to be on the nominating committee. I suck at chess. -

I just heard a Japanese man on the radio saying that by the 2016 olympics you will be able to watch holographic live coverage of the games at a stadium anywhere in the world via a flatbed screen the size of the playing area of the stadium. -

I think Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize was the icing on the cake last year. America was, and still is, massacring people in Iraq and Afghanistan in the name of democracy while this man stands on a pedestal for promoting peace and equality. The world we\'re living in is worse than Orwell\'s \"1984\" because George\'s book was a fictional novel. We\'re living the nightmare here and now. War is peace.-

I think they should give the nobel prize for rubbish to you Harry.Because your full of it.How many times do you have to be told there is no political debate before you figure it out.-

- Just discussing the Nobel Prize or any subject for that matter touches on the political. - There is not much left to discuss in these forums, now is there -

...or may touch on religion, may or may not be related to the subject, or may constitute nonsense to some...-

- Time to dust off Ray Duke\'s apolitical topics -It\'s a nice day and all is well here in New York.-

Anyone or anything would be an improvement over that moron Goerge W. Bush-

And what about these drones flying in Pakistan near the Afghanistan border Scary I think it qualifies for a Nobel Peace Prize, don\'t you think-

16Europian  cc13741628192010-10-07 12:55:27
@ BanmeIcomback ... lol i remember getting a warning once for saying obama\'s election was great news from humankind in general, unless you are getting married somewhere really really remote in afghanistan ... in which case you can expect to be blown up by one of his drones ... but fair play to mr o, he did acknowledge when accepting the prize that he had only been in office a day or two so had no legit claim to it-

17Europian  cc13741628192010-10-07 14:59:28
it\'s peruvian author Mario Vargas Llosa ! ...

He [Vargas] said he thought it was a joke at first. To put it bluntly, graphene is a form of carbon which is practically bidimensional, as it is only one-atom thin. It is a promising material in electronics (the world\'s fastest transistor is graphene-based). By the way, I found out three Portuguese Physicists (including a teacher of mine) were mentioned by the Academy in regards to their important cooperation work with Geim and Novoselov in that field! I feel proud!-

19Europian  cc13741628192010-10-07 19:38:24
lol ... looks like you have something to aspire to ... so this graphene can really be folded up, worn as a wrist band and stuff like that? ... i wonder if the internet will ever go green?-

Nobel Peace Prize has also been decided. I cannot pronounce his name, and I won\'t discuss this topic because of this site\'s policy. I\'ll just state I stand by most of what has been said in the West.-

- It\'s ok, it won\'t get past the Chinese borders. -

22Bouvet  cc13830257352010-10-08 23:28:18
- CHINA\'S MOST famous dissident, the imprisoned pro-democracy activist Liu Xiaobo, is this year\'s winner of the Nobel Peace Prize.-

23Europian  cc13741628192010-10-09 00:56:41
heh heh ... dissident?? ... quote a govt source, \'giving the prize to a criminal will seriously damage norway\'s relations with china\'-

24Portugal  viriol2010-10-09 10:37:19
I heard that in China there was one less Nobel Prize laureate this year.-

25Bouvet  cc13830257352010-10-09 11:02:44
- I heard that they are going to hold a free vote in China as to whether or not Liu Xiaobo deserves that Nobel Prize.-
