    OK seriously, what’s up with the French nuclear hub?

    Fucking french, can’t fight a war so the spread the nukes IOT deter one.

    Is this accurate? I was thinking the same thing about France. I lived there for years and had no idea.

    No country gets a greater percentage of their electricity from nuclear power than France. Yeah it is kind of dishonest (or at least misleading) for the diagram maker to have them so front and center, but given the conventions of the graphic, they are accurate. France has been the recipiant to, or the donator of, an amazing amount of information on nuclear technology. note that this graphic does not denote scale, just number of parties affected.

The US also refused to sell them more weapons in the 60s without inspections at Dimona. (Ever wonder why the ’67 war was fought by the Israelis with British tanks and French aircraft?)

    reunion at the London Olympics. Gold was the new black at the closing ceremony with a parade of supermodels wearing gilded gowns in a tribute to British fashion. Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell both had on Alexander McQueen, Georgia May Jagger was by Victoria Beckham, Karen Elson was in Burberry, and Stella Tennant donned a Christopher Kane Swarovskicrystal catsuit. The soundtrack of course was David Bowie supermodel reunion at New York Fashion Week. Alexander Wang show has become mustsee viewing, partly for influential hipster clothes, but also for the model lineup, a who who of top catwalkers. It was a… Read more »
