Ontzettend interessant, bedankt! Paradoxaal benadrukken je antwoorden voor mij juist ook dat jullie daar in ISS niet de enige zijn die in een 'gesloten systeem' leven: in zekere zin ademen wij op aarde ook gerecyclede lucht en drinken we gerecycled water...alleen is hier de cyclus wat langer en (nog) complexer

Focus, are you drunk, or just plain nuts?1. The last 2 SHU-VU games have been as close as they get.2. It's "Hazell," not Hassel(hoff)3. There is no upper level of the Rock that's open; clearly, if you had been to any games or knew anything about the team, you wouldn't post anything like this.

31/05/2010 - 2:37pmHoy en cuatro han hecho el 11 de Mou (igual al que vende AS, claro), y lo más curioso no es que Higuaín no aparezca, sino que ni siquiera se hace un comentario del porqué: se va a vender, Mou prefiere a Benzema… "información" del palo, periodistas de mentira y muy poca vergüenza.
