Russia Feds Prevent Terrorist Act at Eurovision 2009
Russia's special task teams have prevented a terrorist act during the first semi-final of the Eurovision 2009 song contest.
The news was reported by the Russian media Life.ru.
Employees of the Russian Federal Security Agency discovered inside the Olympic stadium where the show is held, a hiding place containing a package with six 9-mm bullets.
The discovery, reportedly, occurred just hours before the contest's official launch.
The Federal agents further say they believe the bullets were intended to be used in an attempt on the life of one of performers.

"My sex life (or lack of it) does not concern you."
Let me help you with that problem. I could be your trophy wife. A younger woman, educated, sexy, independently wealthy.........What more could you want?
" I've never encountered anyone before who's so obsessed with sex. Don't you think of anything else? Well, eating might be one."
I've never had any complains from any men before. You are the first and only one. That's why I love you, Sweet William.
Upon further consideration, you might be gay. Gentle, effeminate gay men always use Asian women as beards. You did say you had an Asian girlfriend who didn't want to marry you. Gay men marry Asian women a lot. I don't know what it is about Asian women and gay men.
"I don't think I'm too far off base when I recoil from being called gay."
You can't be gay. Gay men are hot and have lots of sex. You never had sex with a man. You might have had same-sex attractions and emotional involvements, but not actual sex. No, you are definitely NOT gay. You are a-sexual. Or in your terms, chaste. Very, very chaste.
I admit to having a poor memory, and it's getting embarrassing. I may have misquoted people, but simply because when I'm typing the reply I can't remember who said it. I didn't attack anyone's personal life (or at least I can't remember having done it) until people started attacking mine.
I don't think I'm too far off base when I recoil from being called gay.
When I state things, I truly believe them to be true at the time of writing, and I have to go on things I've picked up along the way. I've heard for years that Sweden has thehighest tax rate. If that's wrong, I apologize all to hell to satisfy you, but at the time I wrote it, it was the best I knew.
I don't negotiate and I don't take prisoners. This is a discussion forum. Read: forum where you can discuss. I don't have alliances. I don't have enemies. I have opinions and the means to state them.
"You're not unintelligent by a long shot,"
Why, thank you. Now that Bill says it, I can stop tossing and turning at night wondering if I am, indeed, unintelligent. Hahaha, seriously Bill, who the fvck are you to proclaim people smart? You with your self-important anti-intellectualism...
"but you are an acerbic type who thinks that saying what one thinks is the best when it's not filtered with tact."
Tact is for when you care enough not to give your honest opinion.
"I'm not statistically minded, and I don't spend my life googling to find out what the rest of the world is doing down to the minutiae."
I guess you haven't googled reductio ad absurdum then. Because that right there is a textbook case.
So, basically you "know" a fact based on not learning anything about it and making it up as you go? Just like the "fact" that Sweden has the highest tax rate or the other random "facts" you toss around.
"I'm not interested in reading mounds of figures and having someone cite them to me as gospel, when we all know the saying, "there are lies, damned lies, and statistics"."
But, but, but you just used statistics to tell me that AIDS is less prevalent in monogamous relationships. That, genius, is what we in the civilized world call statistics. And I doubt anyone would cite them to you as gospel, since, well, the gospel is pretty much made up... I think you are a teeny bit confused in your terminology there.
"Statisticians can maneuver their findings to "prove" whatever they want, so I don't spend a lot of time looking t them."
Or, pretty much at anything that uses empirical evidence and scientific questioning...
"I don't know about you, but Nellie googles, cuts and pastes, and then tries to make herself look like an expert in the field."
And Nellie is easily found out by anyone with enough brains to copy, paste and google. You know, my cat can use the computer. Maybe he could teach you.
"Like with DA, I don't think we could ever be friends, because we live in widely different milieus, but we can at least be civil."
I am civil. I don't attack your personal life (unlike you), I read your posts before I reply to them (unlike you) and I don't claim you've said stuff that someone else has said (unlike you). This is my civil. If you can't take it - you're always free to stop replying.
"Question, was Nellie a troll when she was egging you on and you were having your opium-fueled conversations about me?"
I don't remember being involved in a conversation with Bill referencing your sex life. Maybe I am having a senior moment, but I don't remember it. I much prefer to analyze Bill's sex life, or the nonexistence thereof. lol
I managed to negotiate a truce with DA; wish I could with you. You're not unintelligent by a long shot, but you are an acerbic type who thinks that saying what one thinks is the best when it's not filtered with tact. Now I'm no expert in the tact arena, either, but I can get very nasty when people push me, although I try to avoid it.

"I just wish you'd quit harping on how I do."
I just wish you'd stop smoking pot or whatever you're smoking. I have never talked about your sex life. not just because the mere thought repulses me, but because I don't care.
Stop making up lies about others, Bill. Won't lying send you to purgatory?
Not everyone you disagree with is a troll. Even for a logically-challenged individual such as you, it should be easy to figure out that I say what I think. A troll can hardly keep up trolling for years and still be consistent in her statements.
Which leads me to think you are just calling me a troll is because you can't think of a rebuttal to anything I say and just don't want to admit it...
Question, was Nellie a troll when she was egging you on and you were having your opium-fueled conversations about me?
OK, so now I'm up against two trolls. So far as I'm concerned, I don't give a damn how either of you lives; I just wish you'd quit harping on how I do. I'm beginning to feel like a professional victim. Why the hell does Nellie pick me to pour all this shit on? She seems to have nothing else to do. She says she doesn't believe a word of it, but she seems to be fascinated by it anyhow. Just can't leave it lone.
I don't have to justify my life style to you two or anyone else. Live and let live.
"OK, you don't respect chastity and/or sexual morality."
Making stuff up yet again? I respect sexual morality. Just not your sexual morality.
"Fine live your life your way."
Well, now that you have deigned to allow it, I shall. Aren't you so full of yourself.
"I and my Church live by different standards, with more respect for the family and individual fidelity."
Nope, I bet I respect the family just as much as you do.
"We don't go along with the modern view, namely that it's fied to go share your body with anyone who comes along for the fun of it."
Wrong yet again. My fun parts are only for the guys I approve of. And that, let me tell ya, is a very select group. If I had sex with everyone that came along, I'd never leave my apartment...
"Fun, yes, but with the partner you're being faithful to."
"There aren't a whole lot of AIDS cases among faithful couples."
Please, post a statistical distribution of your assertion along with a citation of your sources in order to be taken seriously.
