Found this gem of research and writing in a paper today
....Mumbai was at the centre of a terror siege in November 2008 when gunmen launched ten simultaneous attacks at popular landmarks including the Taj hotel, cafes, a train terminal and a Jewish centre.

It was carried out by nine terrorists from the Pakistan-based Islamist group Lashkar-e-Taiba which has committed previous attacks in India.

How can 9 terrorists carry out 10 simultaneous attacks?

    Perhaps one was using the Akimbo perk found in Modern Warfare 2 and firing two weapons? :wink:

    Perhaps the journalist is a fat, tall, coke head, singing prostitute, who needs a Govt' incentive to bring their numeracy skills up to scratch.

    Electrons can be in two places at once according to the bloke from The Eels's dad who was a physicist, so it could have in reality been much more than 10 attacks.

    Pfft.. you've just failed your quantum physics degree mate. :wink: That only works on the sub atomic level. :lol:

    I agree though, does sound a bit odd considering no mention of bombs or what not. :?

    I had despaired of journalism over the last few years but recent I've bought some mags that have been really well written. Take a bow, Scientific American, The Economist and Motorsport. Not asserting anything about how fun or right they might be. But they all come across as being writtent by articulate humans who may have read over what they wrote.

    The economist is really very excellent.

    Not alltogether netural ideologically however - though this is made very explicit and transparent.
