Re: The Thread Of Randomness

In 1986, Swedish prime minister Olof Palme was shot and killed while walking home from a night out with his wife Lisbeth. The murder was never solved, although a man was wrongfully sentenced before being acquitted in a higher instance.

On Wednesday, the so-called Palme group (a group of the Stockholm Police working solely on the murder of our Prime Minister), will present their findings. They have announced, earlier this year, that they will be identifying who was behind the attack. Whether or not they will identify an individual or a group remains to be seen, but this investigation has been active for almost 35 years and being able to identify the killer(s) is a massive development.

The Wikipedia article, and the many theories mentioned therein, is a good read:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassina ... Olof_Palme

Personally, the two most likely theories mentioned in this article I identify as "South Africa" and "The Skandia Man".

Well they did name The Skandia Man today, but the evidence is circumstantial. He was at the scene, his description fits that of the suspect, and he left by running in that direction.

However, there is no technical proof, no weapon, no DNA. All in all, this does not feel all that certain. Likely, yeah, but certain? No.

Just droppes in today, a bit early in the morning, because I liked to play a new game, looking for new content and updating maybe.
I'm amazed by how large the Bananas list have become. Hard to find the right update.

But that didn't matter, because in the meanwhile I discovered mods for Transport Fever which include trains from the Netherlands...
So, it's back to Transport Fever.

Question to other players of Transport Fever: Is the map 1:3 really bigger than 1:1? It does look more rectangular.

Oh yeah, I bought Doom via my Steam account for only €6,-... Well, €5,99 actually.
I'm back gaming the new stuff!

EDIT: I found out about the map size, but I like 1:1 better.
