I would rather take the slumped economic growth that can be rectified in a few years over the culture of political and reliegous violence Egypt has. We may not be has rich, we have never been has rich but we have all ways been more stable than our north African counter parts.

You underestimate some who don't need to bother with the U tube - they know the answer instinctively anyway

Cape Town faces Day Zero, with officials predicting water will run out in April

Quote:

Posted about 4 hours ago

South Africa's Cape Town has been scrambling to avoid an impending Day Zero scenario when taps are expected to run dry and people are left without water.

City officials have announced that a Day Zero situation would most likely happen on April 12.

If Day Zero arrives, Cape Town, which has been hit by nearly three consecutive years of drought, would become the first major metropolis in the world to run out of water.

For weeks, residents of South Africa's second most populous urban area have been forming long lines to collect water every day.

Hard to believe, but Detroit had only 267 murders in all of 2017; more than a 12% drop.

I think they are running out of people to shoot.

It tends to be, although more than a few bystanders catch a stray round in the process.

Did you know that Death Wish is based on SRV Ron's visits to D-town?

Speaking of which, they're making a remake of the movie with Bruce Willis.
