I’m amused that the festival is held in honour of Mare de Déu dels Desemparats [the Mother of God of the Defenceless]- everyone has a chance to participate, tomatoes don’t kill, so they aren’t defenceless, are they?
this is definitely off topic, but I need to know if anyone is aware of this from Google
A Note to Google Users on Net Neutrality:
The Internet as we know it is facing a serious threat. There’s a debate heating up in Washington, DC on something called “net neutrality” – and it’s a debate that’s so important Google is asking you to get involved. We’re asking you to take action to protect Internet freedom.
In the next few days, the House of Representatives is going to vote on a bill that would fundamentally alter the Internet. That bill, and one that may come up for a key vote in the Senate in the next few weeks, would give the big phone and cable companies the power to pick and choose what you will be able to see and do on the Internet.
Today the Internet is an information highway where anybody – no matter how large or small, how traditional or unconventional – has equal access. But the phone and cable monopolies, who control almost all Internet access, want the power to choose who gets access to high-speed lanes and whose content gets seen first and fastest. They want to build a two-tiered system and block the on-ramps for those who can’t pay.
Creativity, innovation and a free and open marketplace are all at stake in this fight. Please call your representative (202-224-3121) and let your voice be heard.
Thanks for your time, your concern and your support.
Tonnes of women go to La Tomatina – it is one of the typical OE stops that loads of Kiwi/Aussie etc etc women go to. In fact at the end of it, the local men have hoses ready to douse the tomato drenched women with water to clean them off… and it’s near impossible for a bloke to get cleaned.
I think the next stop after this is Oktoberfest in 3 weeks…
