60 degrees.... Doh!

Shorebird,
Are you familiar with Canada's dispute with Denmark over Hans Island? Here's the info:

Tightgroup,
Perhaps you're not aware of Google? I just accessed the article after typing in the URL. I am curious to hear what profound thoughts you may provide this group after reading the article. I hope you find it insightful. Good luck, good sailing, and may your adventures be both profound and insightful. P. S. In my opinion, Suzuki is a fool.

Perhaps, its one of those funny googles, but if you copy the link , you will notice that it returns a Page 404. Maybe we can do a join.me so i can take you through the process step by step.

Well for insightful comments, first I like to come up with my own instead of borrowing someone else's.

I am always wary of the inbound hook, it often makes me weary.

The article on Hans Island had nothing to do with philosophy. It was a descriptive account of a territorial dispute between Canada and Denmark regarding sovereignty of this piece of the Arctic(the topic of this discussion). If you had read it(even googling the topic yourself) there was nothing "insightful" but rather informative. Being "insightful" was your assumption, I assume, without reading the article. However, I am certain that, to some ,your above incongruous response was not only "insightful" but equally profound. I sadly remember these shallow topics of discussion many years ago in a Philosophy 101 class when suffocating from the obvious clichés you state ,I was more interested in the crumbs that had collected in the professor's beard after a hearty lunch than the mind numbing topic at hand. Good luck, good sailing, and may your budding interest in philosophy one day grace the hallowed halls of Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, Hegel, Kant, Wittgenstein . . .and Bach, no--not Johann Sebastian, but rather Richard Bach of Jonathon Livingston Seagull fame--now that's philosophy!

Well you asked for profound thoughts. It seems to me that you underwent a conditioning while listening to Skinner.. But again your link is broken! Fix it! Is there an issue why you cannot accept the fact that the link does not work ??

Re: Commercializing the Arctic

Links for all

Hans Island - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Canada

Why who owns it matters is a mystery.

Maybe they should agree to use it as a prison island for their most unwanted or dangerous criminals from each country. Pull up, and let them off, free reign, no need for guards.
