  1. From what I know, Los Angeles and Seoul would be the first choices in a situation such as this and Seoul probably getting the nod. They are as ready as LA and being in Asia definitely helps.

    I don't think Seoul can because it couldn't single handedly host its former WC which it cohosted with Japan. The most capable country in Asia would have be Japan-- if it's willing to.

  2. We never pray for that to happen. If by chance it occures that another SARS outbreak is in China at this ceremonial period, I think the Chinese have to face it squarely. And, it would have a dramatic effect on the chances of the games really passing through, making them the worse Olympic games in the history of the Olympic.

    Meanwhile, chances are that it will not happen. I also beleive they are surveilances everywhere searching for outbreaks here and there in China. If not, they should try to start doing that now.

  3. Of course you did not, and I didn't say you did. Perhaps you might wish to tone down on your comments too before doing the 4.5 million Singaporeans back home a disfavour with your display of an ugly Singaporean.

    Hey, I don't think your mouth is wide enough. Maybe you can open it the more for us to know that you can speak bad words.

  4. If books are all you got, then I pity you because they teach you nothing, you go off talking about this or that when you really have no idea what you are talking about, you only think you do. Jean is a man's name, a MAN, Monsieur Baron had it completely right, Jean is a French man's name, the French form of the name John. The name comes from the Hebrew Yohanan, which went into the Latin Johanne. The name means Yahweh is Gracious and in every culture it is a names name, the closest female equivalent is Jeanne as M. Baron rightly pointed out.

    In English countries the name of Jean, but there is a different pronunciation, something as an English speaker you should know, words can be spelled the same, but have different pronunciations that carry different meaning.

    As I am from a Francophone country, guess which one applies. ן

    Thank you for the correction!

    But, am still wondering why you are so sad-looking. If may ask, why are you so sad about being an African?

  5. NYCD2012, in French JEAN is primarily a man's name. It's their JOHN. So, you have Jean-Paul Belmonde, Jean Marais, Jean-Pierre, etc.. (In English, it becomes a woman's name, but tehcnically, is should be Jeanne, rather than the shorter Jean.) If it's female, Jean becomes JeanNE, as in their famous actress, Jeanne Moreau. The "(n)e" at the end feminizes it. Blond (masc); blonde(fem); grand (mas), grande (fem), etc. etc.

    I did some french in school. The french vocab is more than the English with the é, à, etc. If am right the masculine and the feminine thing are not basically with the e ending thing. It does mostly with number, age, size of what is being described. In french you can say grand mere(feminine) or grand pere(masculine). la grand stylo or les grand stylos, the most noticable different there is in the quatity with definite articles of la and les.

    However, I beleive the meaning depends on where the name actually comes from. In scotland it may stands for boy's name while in France for girl's name with thesame spelling.

  6. I don't think he's JJ or XD. I think Jeankigali has almost thesame problem with me when I came newly to the forum but, he is a little bit concerned about sensitive issue from a wrong dimension.

    From my own point of view, I would like him to continue posting in the forum afterall he opened a good thread of "Why No Africa". The most surprising thing is that he can not stand criticism.

  7. lagos was compared to cape town...thats funny

    Did anybody ever compare? I didn't see that yet. Plz, you have to point to where it was mentioned in this thread. But Cape Town is not just all the heaven. Besides, Lagos is a big city even bigger than Cape Town, PLz. Every city has its bad sides. Why do you think one cannot compare Cape Town to Lagos?

  8. You are an embarrassment to African with the way you carry on in this forum, you embarrass all the good, well spoken, non-judgmental Africans, or maybe its just because you are from a former British colony, while I am from the francophonie. Your lack of respect to other posters is appalling and you need to address this if you want to become a functioning and beneficial addition to this form.

    I have never see anything positive in your posts in the first case. You are rather judgemental here by saying maybe because am from the former British colony while your are from the francophonie than to say you are fight a course for Africa to progress. You don't seem to act right, bro. I think you like to create enemity and it's good for nobody. Am your friend saying that you should learn to be careful when treating things important.

    Where are you from anyway? Rwanda? I can not live in the past and I can not listen to somebody who does. PLZ!

  9. If they know some of the athletes would be able to perform in Beijing and environs they should take them to some rural fields to do theirs there. If I like, I would go to Beijing and inhale the air I will still be alife, that's the truth. Am not saying here that Chinese should relax and watch the pollution to continue.

    The athletes are giving excuse here that they can't perform in such atmosphere. Whereas, many chinese athletes are there doing their thing.

  10. Well, I've been through some of your continent's "sparkling" capitals, and let me tell you, watching 80 per cent of the population walk around armed with machettes, seeing kids sniff glue in the central city main streets, and having to get through miles of shanty towns to make it to the open country, they're far from "charming".

    I don't want to say anything as long as somebody called for the insult. Nobody is insulting my country yet. Jeankigali, if you don't know how to put up a good post by being negritude will call for troubles. Wole Soyinka wrote...tiger tigretude, negro negritude...you better behave yourself cos I wouldn't want people to insult my country.

    Sir, Roltel, Africa isn't 80 percent with people walking around with matchettes. That can never be posible anywhere. Atleast, I can speak for my country.

  11. I'm currently having trouble loading the web pages on this site.Sometimes they go agonizingly slowly and can take up to a minute or more before they load.Sometimes they just freeze and I keep having to hit my refresh button to get things moving,not always with success.For instance,it's just taken about 30 seconds to get into this particular Forum and when I tried to make a post a few minutes ago,it threw me out altogether although thankfully it allowed me to save the text first!

    I've experienced trouble with this website in the past but in a different form.I've tried adjusting my browser to no avail but it only seems to be this website that gives me any trouble so I'm not convinced it is the browser.Is it just a problem for AOL subscribers like me? Is anybody else experiencing problems like this?

    Any advice anyone can give me will be gratefully accepted!

    (PS. I wonder how long it will take me to post THIS?).

    The only advice I can give here from experience is to increase you RAM from it present size to a larger one.
