À Aubagne (Bouches-du-Rhône), les violents orages ont pris de cours les habitants et causé de nombreux dégâts dans la ville. Des chutes de grêle impressionnantes ont touché la ville qui s'est transformée en torrent en deux heures ce jeudi 9 août. Les habitants ont assisté au déluge impuissant. Un restaurateur a dû interrompre son service, son frigo d'extérieur a été renversé par le courant d'eau et le moteur est hors d'usage. À l'intérieur, 10 centimètres d'eau ont envahi la cuisine et les employés ne savent pas quand ils vont pouvoir rouvrir le restaurant . "Les morceaux de grêlons ont traversé la toile, c'est hallucinant ce qui vient de se passer", témoigne Cyril Picot, devant l'étendue des dégâts.

Deux fois plus de pluie que la normale
Dans la ville, de nombreuses voitures sont abîmées par l'impact des grêlons. Une autre averse moins importante a de plus commencé dans l'après-midi de ce jeudi 9 août, gênant le début du nettoyage. En une seule journée, il a plu dans la ville deux fois plus que la quantité normalement enregistrée lors d'un mois d'août classique.

Scallop war: French and British boats clash in Channel
That's Scallop war;)

French fishermen have been accused of throwing insults, rocks and smoke bombs at their British rivals in the English Channel in a vicious scrap over scallops.

The clash happened around 12 nautical miles (22km) off the Normandy coast, near the Bay of Seine.

British boats are legally entitled to fish in the scallop-rich area.

But their presence has infuriated the French, who accuse the British of shamelessly depleting shellfish stocks.

Now UK fishermen are demanding government protection, while the French bewail the loss of a "primary resource".

In short, it's full-blown scallop wars.

Sounds fishy. What exactly happened?
Around 40 French boats gathered overnight on Monday in protest against so-called British "pillaging".

"The French went to contact the British to stop them working and they clashed with each other," said Normandy fishing chief Dimitri Rogoff. "Apparently there was stone-throwing, but no injuries."

Some boats were damaged in the skirmish, with three suffering holes, footage from France 3 Normandie showed.

The British couldn't match the local armada for numbers. With about five boats to 35 French vessels, they were ultimately chased away.

Two British boats, Golden Promise and Joanna C, returned to Brixham harbour with damaged windows.

British boats are legally entitled to fish off the Normandy coast - but their French counterparts accuse them of "pillaging"
The crews alleged they were surrounded and had rocks and metal shackles thrown at their boats.

A video published by French media appears to show a Scottish scallop dredger, the Honeybourne 3, colliding with nearby vessels.

Why has it all blown up now?
Tension has rumbled for 15 years, but in the past five a deal has prevailed - larger British boats stayed out of the area in exchange for more fishing rights.

British boats gathered scallops year-round, but the French were confined to between 1 October and 15 May.

This year, the fed-up French rejected that agreement.

"For the Brits, it's an open bar - they fish when they want, where they want, and as much as they want," Mr Rogoff complained.

"We don't want to stop them from fishing, but they could at least wait until 1 October so that we can share.

"Scallops are a flagship product for Normandy, a primary resource and a highly sensitive issue."

How have the Brits reacted?
Mike Park, chief executive of the Scottish White Fish Producers Association, described the clashing incident as "clear piracy".

Speaking about the Scottish boat, he told BBC Scotland: "He's fully entitled to be there. UK vessels can enter that French zone, it's not illegal.

"The Peterhead vessel is going about its business. The French vessels are probably attacking it."

Appeals for calm were issued by Britain's National Federation of Fishermen's Organisations, which said some boats had been filmed manoeuvring dangerously.

"We have raised the matter with the British government and asked for protection for our vessels, which are fishing legitimately," its chief executive, Barrie Deas, said.

"The deeper issues behind the clashes should be settled by talking around the table, not on the high seas where people could be hurt."

It may be interesting to point out that British went to war over Salvage rights:

...The ongoing tension between the two countries over the islands increased on 19 March when a group of Argentine scrap metal merchants (actually infiltrated by Argentine marines) raised the Argentine flag at South Georgia Island, an act that would later be seen as the first offensive action in the war. The Royal Navy ice patrol vessel HMS Endurance was dispatched from Stanley to South Georgia on the 25th in response. The Argentine military junta, suspecting that the UK would reinforce its South Atlantic Forces,[17] ordered the invasion of the Falkland Islands to be brought forward to 2 April.

Actually there was more to it than just salvage rights:unsure:
Its bit more of that. (whole Venezuela thing). They had socialism before, but they lived good for a South American country.

As for hilarious reaction of parading soldiers... Looks like that is nothing new
Venezuelan people lived good till Chavez, before him, they were a center neither left nor right.
Also both Chavez and Maduro wasted all the Oil money on Russian War tech
Next 5 years, at least, Venezuelan's. .

I don't understand that. Yes, when some you say " petty bull shit, dictatorship states" ....sinks the boat yes it can cost people on west taxes. People in that "petty bull shit" country also live worse than before after western intervention (usually military one) and introduction to god given democracy.
Natural resources of that country or plundered. Also economy (Not great before, but working) destroyed so multinational companies can sell their crappy "made in China" products. Western multinational companies??? Hardly, they only have western origin and support from western governments.

So I want to know where money goes?!!!Because is not here, is not among people of western countries and for damn sure is not in Venezuela!

Maybe you Le petit can tell me where the money is?

The planet is over crowded
A few less, Venezuelan's, Serbian, Iraniens, Soudanais, Somalie's, Londonien's and Parisiens. ...will do the world a lot of good (Agree ? )
I agree partially. I mean planet is not overcrowded, but with this growth it would be soon. Especially because more and more people adopting American lifestyle (eating meat everyday, driving big SUVs and spending a lot electrical power also don't giving much shit for environment and waste they make.)

I really don't know how you came up with list of people you think need to be subjugated to eugenics? I'm pretty sure that isn't any scientific method.

Lats take Serbs I mean what by wich rate we reproducing? Here you go So we are among last 20 countries with constant steady decline in last 20-30 years. Take in consideration that many of us moving to western countries and most of them will become naturalized in 2-3 generation max. (you can't say that for majority nations in migrant wave ).
So, mon Le petit, Serbs will day of in some 100 years no matter what. We are not problem!

My Algerian friend told me yesterday that his grandmother have 80 grandchildren! Mine have only me!(That's a sucker :))
He also telling me how people here is bad (despite he was accepted quite well in the small closed community and desperate current situation in world and he being Muslim, taking local woman here and converting her into Islam)

I just wonder if I am in same situation as he is (Me moving to Algeria, taking local woman and converting her into Christianity) . Would those good, superieur men take me as one of his own or maybe more like her brothers will try to kill me!
But that doesn't matter in his and eyes of many Arab people we are bad and they are good no meter for circumstances and doings one do!
