Thought for the day

"The most terrifying force of death, comes from the hands of 'Men who wanted to be left alone'.<p>They try, so very hard, to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love.<p>They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it.<p>They know, that the moment they fight back, the lives as they have lived them, are over.  <p>The moment the "Men who wanted to be left alone" are forced to fight back, it is a small form of suicide.  They are literally killing off who they used to be.<p>Which is why, when forced to take up violence, these "Men who wanted to be left alone", fight with unholy vengeance against those who murdered their former lives.  <p>They fight with raw hate, and a drive that cannot be fathomed by those who are merely play-acting at politics and terror.  TRUE TERROR will arrive at the left's door, and they will cry, scream, and beg for mercy...but it will fall upon deaf ears." ~ Lt. Col. Jeff Cooper

Last month, Switzerland opened a new pumped storage hydropower plant called Nant de Drance, which effectively acts as a water battery, storing tremendous amounts of energy. As Russia tightens its grip on the EU’s energy supplies, this battery storage facility could play a major role in saving the bloc from a nightmare scenario where Putin cuts off gas entirely. Costing €2billion (£1.67billion), this underground water battery can store 20 million kWh of energy, which is enough to power 900,000 homes.
