B-52 Stratofortress change

Note: header added by me, to maintain organized the talk page. FrancoGG ( talk ) 19:18, 11 February 2007 (UTC)Reply

The B52 is A for real "World Bomber". With Refueling it has done real world missions of over 16000 nm.All thru the cold war they were aloft 24/7 with nuclear payloads , and have flown over 24000 nm. on one flight. It is not alone, the Tu 95 or Bear, a Russian bomber, has an un refueled range of more than 13,000 km and speeds of more than 800 km/h at altitudes of 10,000 meters. It also has world range with refueling. In your own experience in the Falklands/Malvinas War, British vulcans flew over 14000 nm round trip. These horrific weapons are a testament to our idiocy as a species but alas they are now old history. Trust me the B-1, B-2, and Backfire are even more capable than the B-52 and Bear.

Tagging pages for deletion.. change

Thanks for tagging all those pages for deletion. When you tag such a page, could you put a subst:test/subst:stopvandal message on the talk page of the respective contributor? - Would save us admins a lot of work, and might help recognise the offenders, once they come again. Thanks. And ofc, welcome to SimpleWP. --Eptalon 21:51, 19 February 2007 (UTC)Reply

Welcome tag change

You're right, {{subst:Welcome}} is way easier! I've been doing it the hard way this whole time. Silly me... :-) I was just trying to help Coffsneeze because s/he had been copy-pasting the text that was on their talk page (which caused it to appear without the links). Anyways, your advice was much better than mine and you've taught me something new. Thanks! · Tygartl1·talk· 18:18, 6 April 2007 (UTC)Reply

Increasing Burden of School Bags

India had been a colony of Britain for more than two centuries. Although, we have become independent in terms of our own constitution, but still we are slave mentally and psychologically our attire is our own but the person within it is motivated by the British ideology. As we all know that today it is an era of cutthroat competition. So we can't deny the rapidly increasing importance of English language. At present English has become a global language. In the hour of liberalization, privatization and globalization English language has rooted firmly its footings in the mind of each and every citizen of the world. In order to be successful English has become necessary to be learned by all. English is not as simple as it appears to be become it is a complicated admixture of several European languages, such as- Greek, Latin, French, German, English etc. Thus it possesses approximately ten lack words. India is a developing country. Its population is more than 100 crore. Here we have lack o resources & production, so it has always been a challenge for us to educate all the citizens. Due to over population the competition is getting more complicated and horrible. As a matter of fact our competition is with the western countries where English is spoken in general. Therefore we, Indians being from rural and Hindi background, are quite unable to learn all these words. Though, we in no sphere of life, lag behind the Britishers but our main problem is of foreign language which is imposed not inculcated in our veins. I can claim that the Europeons will certainly face the same problem if Hindi is posed to them. Therefore, due to the increasing world over significance of English language we can't of avoid it. We have to learn it how to speak, how to write and how to make other people understand our feeling. Now the question that arises before us is what should be done to teach English to all the Indians in the simplest possible way? How can it be learnt by all? It seems next to impossible to learn ten lakh words for every Indian. So I am inclined to create a modified English named after Rajeev Gandhi, which will include about one lakh words and will also facilitate the Indians to interact with the foreigners in the easiest possible way. Reduction of words requires great consideration and strenuous efforts. We can drop out the undesired words, synonyms, undesired homonyms and homophones. I am determined to create an easily intelligible English, which will include our colloquial terms and the most essential words. As we see newspapers in English language are daily published across the country but very few people are able to read them and translate because the English used in these papers is complicated, vague and completely unintelligible for the common people. This way these newspapers remain beyond the reach of the billons of Indian. I think simple and easy English must be used in writing newspapers and magazines by doing so we will be able to reach the hearts of those people who are responsible to run bear and feed this country, until or unless we teach English to our frames, laborers and commoners, the vision 2020 of developed India will surely break down.

Today we boast of the fastest growing economy of India but the question is that “Is this economy able to provide bread to the needy ones?" No, money is getting accumulated in the bags of very few people who belong to the upper strata of the society and know the cruel ways how to exploit economically, culturally and sociably the innocent and ignorant people of this nation in the so called English fashion. 

Therefore in order to bring the farthest standing people into the mainstream of development we will have to teach them this Rajeev Gandhi English and students will learn it in play way method. Undoubtedly I can claim it will prove a boon for the general masses of this poor nation. It is a revolutionary step and will become a milestone in the history of human development.

Learning english change

Hi! Could you teach me? I know a little English. My mother language is Afrikaans, so first you´ll have to learn Afrikaans. And then you could start teaching me English. I would like to speak an expert English, like the president. I hope you´ll say yes! See you!
