1. What’s a Diavivastis doing on the front line like 5-mili? You shouldn’t be on the front line.

2. What personal weapon were you issued with as a Diavivastis?

3. What was your rank prior to becoming a Anthibolohagos and where did you go to attain it?

4. Why did you take so long to respond to this? You should be able to answer such basic things instantly on the fly.

Wher were you?

not to ruin this but I am pretty sure diavivastes (those who carry the radios???) are always with a squad.

Don't hold any horses.....you'll get flying lessons !!

Given my experience of knowing a fair few military folk of a certain vintage GR, usually they aren't inclined to give information in a hurry.
Take my late grandfather. He served on HMS Hood. The day it sank, he was on land duty. He lost every single one of his friends. He never ever spoke of it. Only to acknowledge he served on the ship. It was that raw feeling he got to speak about it.
Now, I don't understand any of what georgios said, translation for me would be nice. However, I would never question anyone who takes time to answer such questions for fear of being kicked in the balls for being insolent!


For purposes of this threads turn of debate, my late father in law served his country of Cyprus. You never questioned him either.

Cypriots are not the smartest people as GR might think.
I support medical marijuana use only. Recreational use to be limited for 25 years or older
and in small amounts. Israel has been in marijuana testing and use to patients for over 20 years.
For those who reject marijuana use, watch this movie and judge for yourself. Ignorance is not an option!

just like in the u.s, people would abuse this medical use license. There are alternate ways to treat conditions that marijuana can also treat and I am pretty sure it's not really smart to treat a condition with a drug that is more cancerous than tobacco, cause brain damage and cause hearth/lung problems.

[quoteAlthough one study found that marijuana smokers were three times more likely to develop cancer of the head or neck than non-smokers, that study could not be confirmed by further analysis.
Because marijuana smoke contains three times the amount of tar found in tobacco smoke and 50 percent more carcinogens, it would seem logical to deduce that there is an increased risk of lung cancer for marijuana smokers. However, researchers have not been able to definitively prove such a link because their studies have not been able to adjust for tobacco smoking and other factors that might also increase the risk.

Studies linking marijuana smoking to lung cancer have also been limited by selection bias and small sample size. For example, the participants in those studies may have been too young to have developed lung cancer yet. Even though researchers have yet to "prove" a link between smoking pot and lung cancer, regular smokers may want to consider the risk.][/quote]

Most of these studies are inconclusive..basically not relevant...

I'm with you dude.
These guys are still living in their Greek bubble. (literally still stuck in the dark ages, just watch ERT) .....

You will never see Greek scientists, engineers or doctors in a documentary testing a new concept, idea or technological breakthrough to benefit the Greek/ Cypriot people.
You will always see them with a Bouzouki in one hand, some ancient narrator talking about some sheep herder who founded a village in the Peloponnese in 1853 dodging the Ottomans.....whilst some unheard of group is dancing the Sirtaki around a wooden table.

JUST WATCH ERT!
Oh, and I'm sure you've got it in Toronto.
ERT, keeping Greeks dumb since 1938

Smoking pot can give you cancer if you mix it with tobacco, what about a pot only joint??.

You can get cancer from not smoking pot too.
So, what's the difference?

Those GCs displaced are doing it around the world instead. Those displaced are pediatricians, engineers, solicitors etc etc

No good being a melon farmer in the UK ;)

I present to you what I've being saying for nearly a decade.

They are doing it....., and I quote 'AROUND THE WORLD'
They can't seem to do it in Cyprus and they sure as hell can't seem to do it in Greece either.

Yet they're doing it 'AROUND THE WORLD'



Thank you FH

I can only speak of what I know.


Put it this way, Cyprus is strong all over the world. Her people may not be with her, but they certainly aren't weakened or diluted by the countries they live in.
One day, I might tell you the tale of a pediatric surgeon, who happens to be the Cypriot honorary consul in Scotland. What happened when he took a moment of his very very busy time, to help a stranger find whats left of her Cypriot relatives(haven't found them yet) was truly amazing ....
