    This Strange Writing Appeared in the Sky Over New York City, and It’s Not Good For At Least One Group of People

    [​IMG]

    New Yorkers gazed into the blue sky with bemusement as a skywriting plane carefully scribbled the phrase ‘How happy Is the one who says, I am a Turk’ in Turkish over Manhattan.

    The phrase was coined by the founder of modern Turkey, Kemal Ataturk, in 1933 and was until recently an oath which every Turkish child was obliged to repeat twice a week at school.

    But the plane then went on to scrawl more controversial slogans in the sky, including several which denied the Armenian genocide in 1915.

    These included ‘101 years of geno-lie’ and ‘Truth=Peace’ and the URL of a website which is designed to ‘counter Armenian misinformation’ about the deaths of 1.5 million Armenians during and just after World War I.

    Luke O’Brien tweeted: ‘Nothing screams ‘we have nothing to hide’ than a denial over Manhattan.

    Last year Kim Kardashian launched an outspoken attack on President Obama for refusing to use the word ‘genocide’ as he marked the 100th anniversary of the massacre of 1.5 million Armenians.

    The reality star, whose father was of Armenian origin, has used her celebrity since 2011 to bring awareness to the genocide.

    In 1986 a similar stunt set off panic in New York, when a skywriting display above a Turkish-American parade was mistaken for a warning of an imminent attack by Colonel Gaddafi’s Libya.

    Froggy, serious query here.

    Is the IPhone SE really as good as getting a 6S ???

    What are the pros and cons ??

    A hot girl in the Apple Store says they're the same.

    Experience tells me, the 6S is probably demonstrably better in some way.

    I'm rough on phones.

    Pz help.

    :hug:

    My god, this girl was smokin'

    She had that new-ish thing where she dyes her blonde hair so it kinda looks like gray hair (but not).... She's mid 20s so they gray is just ironic but it's also sexy.... She was mesmerizing

    i am not convinced they are but the SE sales are hot. The SE is basically a 5S with touch id and the same CPU as the 6 but not 3d touch (i hardly use 3d touch: i find it annoying.). The 6S has a better (5MP vs 1.2MP) front facing camera and 3d touch.
