What year was it 8 years ago

what year was it 8 years ago

It will now have expired and i'm 99% sure it went in the bin with the carrier bag I had from the shop (used it as ID to buy beer when i was 18. )

you will need to report it lost

otherwise they will want it for the renewal

just say you can't find it

When you fill out the form for the new one, there's a part where you tell them about any other passports you have had, and you can say there that it was lost years ago. It'll be fine, it happens all the time.

Yes don't worry about this at all, just tell them the truth.

Phew! I was a bit worried about clicking on this thread as I lost my passport years ago too and have never had the nerve to apply for another one. I thought you were all going to say how terrible it was and how much trouble I would be in.

Pixel - I've had to fill in a LS01 to go with my passport application to say i lost my old one, i rang the helpline and he said not to fill all the boxes in if i couldn't remember dates and address's or passport number, so i've filled in what i can.

Ooh glad I've seen this thread. My passport isn't lost but it expired years ago and I chucked it. I was looking at the form for a new passport and it said, send the old one if you wish to renew passport. Does that mean I just fill in the renew one but explain that I'm not sending the old one?

Thanks Lovemygirls. I won't be going anywhere in the near (or far!) future but it's nice to know I can without being carted off to jail! I actually thought that our passports must be somewhere indoors as dh is terrible for losing things. It was only when we moved and had a massive clearout and they didn't turn up that I thought "oops9quot; and I've been trying not to think about it ever since.

There won't be much on my form, I don't know passport numbers, dates or anything What year was it 8 years ago. All I know is the last time they were used because I was 6 wks pregnant with ds and felt terrible for the whole holiday so that's stuck in my mind!

Lol Pixel - the last time mine was used I was also pregnant (about 12 weeks) and just out of hospital for severe morning sickness. I managed to keep SOME of the lovely Greek food down at least!

помогите , пожалуйста с переводом. очень надо! what did the world look like 12000 years ago? In many ways it looked as it does today.

There were oceans , lakes and rivers , mountains hills and deserts. The main difference? Much more land was covered with forests and all the animals were wild. Human beings were hunters and gatherers. They usually lived in small bands. Often one large family made up a band. It included not only parents with children but also grandparents , uncles , and cousins. Sometimes , several smaller families formed a band.

In London.London was a big surprise. It was small, and a didn't recognize any of the streets. They weren't the same as the streets of the London of my time. We went through the market. I liked it. They had everything: poems, medicine,roses,fish meat, oranges. There were people with sheep and pigs. I also saw a lot of beggars.Phillip lived with his aunt, countess Bagshow. We went to her hous and Phillip introducen me. " This boy can cure any disease", he said. The countess was wery happy, and I became her servant. I liked the house. The furniture was comfortanle, and I could sleep in a bed. The windows had glass in them. When I saw a toiled inside the house, I was very happy. There were no beds or toiled in Edinburg.That evening there was a feast iin the castle. The countess gave me a spoon and said. " You must come with your own spoon when somebody invites you to dinner".The people in the castl more beautiful, expensive clothes, but the smellthere was bad. I though all the people needed a bath. But there was no bathroom and no toilet in the castle!At the feast I had to stand behind the countess's chair and serve her.All the plates and curp were made of silver, and the food looked tasty. But I didn't like peoplse's manners. They ate with their hands and threw bones on the floor. Their hands were birty and their teeth were black , because they ate a lot of sugar. The Queen didn't smile. because her teeth were black too.At nigh the countess didn't feel well. She had stomathache and I had to help her. But I made a big mistek. I said " I am not surprised. You ate five chickens and two cakes at the feast. And you didn't wash you hands!" The countess was wery angry and told me to leave her house. My friends Phillip felt sory for me, but what could he do?I nedeed money so went to the market and started my own business. I predicted The future and gave people aspirin. Finally, the Queen invited me to her castle and I told her about the future of England. You know the end of the story. Now I am in the Tower, and everything is ready for my execution.

bought and sold goods through a system known as bartering. This meant that they exchanged goods. For example, if someone wanted some tomatoes and had a basket of fruit to offer, he swapped it with someone else who had tomatoes and wanted to get some fruit. An interesting fact is that the word “salary” has its origins in the Latin word for “salt”, which is what the ancient Romans used as a means of payment. One of the first forms of money was actually a type of seashell, the cowry. People in Southeast Asia and parts of Africa used cowries from 1500 BC to 200 AD/ Money, as we know it today, has a very long history. There are several opinions about who the inventors of coins were. Many experts claim that the Lydians, people who lived in the part of the world that is now Turkey, invented the first coins nearly 3000 years ago. Paper money dates back to ancient China. A shortage jf copper made the Chinese start producing money made from paper. The first recorder use of paper money goes back around 1300 years ago. Today money is more paper or metal currency. People have been using credit cards instead of money since the early 1900s. Consumers use cheques to pay for what they have bought, even in supermarkets. Someone can use the internet to pay their household bills. Indeed, today the person can spend vast amounts of money, without even laying their hands on a single coin or banknote!

I opened my eyes and saw the soldier. He was in bed and his face was very pale. He had a very bad cough too. "What's the matter with you?" I asked, "Have you got a cold?" "I don't know," said the soldier, "but I have a headache and a sore thoat." I wanted to call the doctor and tried to open the door but I couldn't. I looked out of the window and couldn't belive my eyes. All the people from our house were in the street. They closed the door to the house. "Please help us! The soldier is ill," I cried. "If you go out, you'll kill us. It's the plague," they answered and ran away. At they moment I understood everything. I wasn't in Russia, and it wasn't a game. But how did I get to the Edinburgh of hundreds of years ago? Was I mag? Was it a bad dream? I didn't know the answer. I looked at the soldier. He was real. I touched his forehead. His temperature was high - that was real too. " If I don't help him, he'll die. And I'll die too," I thought and opened my rucksack. There were a lot of medicines in my rucksack. I had an aspirin, some nose drops and some cough syrup. I gave my medicine to the soldier. " If you don't have the plague, my medicine will help you. You must stay in bed and drink a lot of water, " I said to him. Two days later the soldier was better. It wasn't the plague. It was flu. But when I told him about it, he didn,t believe me. "You have some secret medicine and you can cure any disease," he said. " I must go back to London tomorrow. If you come with me, I'll do anything for you." The soldier and I went to London. His name was Phillip and he wasn't a bad man. The road to London was long and difficult, but finally we got there. Вопросы переведите и ответье на ни, пожалуйста!!

What Was Life Like 100 Years Ago?

No matter how much we learn about our ancestors as individuals, it’s hard to picture what their lives were like back then. What were their struggles and challenges? What were their daily routines? Was life simpler for them?

A theatre troup in Del Tura, Florida compiled a list of what life was like 100 years ago. After viewing that list, it’s amazing to think just how much has changed over time.

What year was it 8 years ago Brooklyn, 1916 (Image credit: Library of Congress)

Some of our favorites in that list:

  • Average life expectancy for men was 47.
  • Fuel for cars was only sold in drug stores.
  • Only 14 percent of homes had a bathtub.
  • Only 8 percent of homes had a telephone.
  • The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower.
  • The average US worker made between $200-$400 each year.
  • More than 95 percent of all births took place at home.
  • Sugar was 4 cents a pound, eggs were 14 cents a dozen, coffee was 15 cents a pound.
  • Most women washed their hair only once a month, using Borax or egg yolks.
  • The population of Las Vegas, Nevada was only 30.
  • Crossword puzzles, canned beer and iced tea had not yet been invented.
  • There was neither a Mother’s Day nor a Father’s Day.

FLASHBACK: Hillary Trashes Trump For “Assassination Threat,” But Look What She Said 8 Years Ago

Donald Trump rejected claims he was advocating violence against Hillary Clinton when he suggested at a rally Tuesday there might be something “Second Amendment people” can do to stop her from picking judges, telling Fox News he was only talking about their “political” power – and saying of the media coverage: “Give me a break.”

The candidate made the comments after telling voters in Wilmington, N.C., that his Democratic rival wants to “abolish” the Second Amendment.

“If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks,” he said.

Trump then added, “Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”

Almost immediately, liberals claimed that Trump was essentially calling for someone to kill Clinton.

The liberal media has double standards when it comes to Trump and Clinton.

Trump’s comments in no way referenced assassination (if anything they implied a revolution), but back in 2008, Clinton directly referenced someone assassinating then-Sen. Barack Obama, Conservative Tribune reports.

In an interview questioning why she was still in the race even though it was already clear that Obama was going to be the nominee, Clinton remarked how her husband only won the race in June in 1992, and then dropped this gem:

“We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. You know, I don’t understand it. You know, there’s lots of speculation about why it is,” she said, clearly stating that she wanted to stay in just in case someone decided to assassinate Obama.

As the New York Post reported at the time:

WASHINGTON – Hillary Rodham Clinton yesterday brought up the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy while defending her decision to stay in the race against Barack Obama – drawing a furious reaction from the front-runner’s camp.

“My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don’t understand it,” she said, dismissing calls to drop out.

Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton rebuked Clinton, saying her remark was “unfortunate and has no place in this campaign.”

Any comments about assassination and the primary contest are especially sensitive because Obama is the first African-American to advance so far in the race for the White House and he has faced threats, congressional sources have said.

“Remember when @HillaryClinton said she was waiting on Obama to be murdered? 2nd Amendment? Share it, bc MSM won’t!”

No one even mentioned those comments during Clinton’s run at the presidency this year. However, all we will be hearing for the next few days is commentary about how Trump’s remark was dangerous, reckless, horrible, etc.

Breitbart adds that another who mentioned the possibility of an Obama assassination was none other than Obama’s own running mate, then-Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE):

“I guarantee you, Barack Obama ain’t taking my shotguns, so don’t buy that malarkey,” Biden said angrily. “They’re going to start peddling that to you. I got two, if he tries to fool with my Beretta, he’s got a problem.”

Predicting an uprising of people if the federal government supersedes its authority and tries to take away your rights should be lauded, and at any rate it isn’t nearly as bad as implying that you think your opponent will be assassinated.

VOTE FOR DONALD TRUMP AND TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

Listen to what our ancestors’ language sounded like 6,000 years ago

What year was it 8 years ago

Is it possible that this is how the language of our ancestors sounded in the distant past?

The Indo-European languages ​​constitute the largest family of languages ​​in the world in numbers of speakers. To this incredible list, belong most of the languages ​​of Europe and South Asia (about 150 languages ​​spoken by about 3,200 million people or 45% of the world population).

But where do all these languages come from, what is their origin? The first hypothesis of a common origin was proposed in the late eighteenth century by the British scholar Sir William Jones, who noted similarities between four of the oldest known languages: Sanskrit, Latin, Greek and Persian.

German philologist and linguist Franz Bopp supported this hypothesis later, after systematically comparing these with other languages, Bopp was able to find many cognates or terms with the same etymological origin only with different phonetic evolution. This common language of origin has been called Proto-Indo-European, and is believed to have been spoken for thousands of years.

A lost ancient language, reconstructed in the best possible way

According to researchers, approximately between 4,500 and 2,000 BC, the ancestors of most of Europe and Asia spoke the same native language, a language that is known today as Proto-Indo-European. Linguists are certain they have “reconstructed” the 600 year old language and here below you can listen to what it sounded like. Although there is no written record of such language, linguist Andrew Byrd from Kentucky reconstructed this ancient language using only the vocabulary experts are certain existed over 6000 years ago.

Here is the recording:

Byrd is an expert in Indo-European language and focused his studies on phonology. to record the 6000 year old language, and edited and recited his version of a fable called the Sheep and the Horses, and a version of a story called The king and God in PIE (Proto-Indo-European) language.

For all of you who want to know what it actually means in English, check out the text below:

A sheep that had no wool saw horses, one of them pulling a heavy wagon, one carrying a big load, and one carrying a man quickly. The sheep said to the horses: “My heart pains me, seeing a man driving horses.” The horses said: “Listen, sheep, our hearts pain us when we see this: a man, the master, makes the wool of the sheep into a warm garment for himself. And the sheep has no wool.” Having heard this, the sheep fled into the plain.
