4. Andre Ward

We could never get him to leave Oakland. haha That is a bit of a lie but he loved the home comforts. ATG boxer with quite an ugly style but no doubt he was tremendous. I do think he was very fortunate to retire unbeaten because I thought he lost the first fight vs Kovalev.

Won Olympic gold medal in 2004
Retired with 32-0 record. Ruled at super middleweight and was also light heavyweight world champion.

Rod Stewart had a lot of hits. I can’t tell which we’re composed by him from the others.
(Comment on Rod Stewart half dozen, sorry. Just finished checking that one).

You forgot to mention that the rats were all British and American even though Bulgarian umbrellas are your speciality:

The Allies filled dead rats filled with explosives and left them in German-run factories. When the workers found the animals and threw them in the furnace, they exploded. In the end the Germans were so paranoid they left any dead rats where they were, explosive or otherwise. As a result diseases spread as the corpses rotted, a double-whammy of a way to wage psychological war on the enemy.

^^^ That was the British in WWII.

5. Brush pass and computer data transfer pass

The complaint alleges that Chapman, 28, was using a specially configured laptop computer to transmit messages to another computer of an unnamed Russian official - a handler who was under surveillance by the FBI.

The laptop exchanges occurred 10 times, always on Wednesdays, until June, when an undercover FBI agent got involved, prosecutors said. The agent, posing as a Russian consulate employee and wearing a wire, arranged a meeting with Chapman at a Manhattan coffee shop, according to prosecutors.

During the meeting, they initially spoke in Russian but then agreed to switch to English to draw less attention to themselves, the complaint says, recounting their recorded conversation.

So you did know, but deliberately failed to mention it.

Pollard spied for Israel and, hence, most prefer not to mention him!

This game of including or removing nationality when it suits is an old one.

You are confusing two different uses of dead rats in espionage. The rat "dead drop" that I posted was actually used by CIA in Moscow during the Cold War.

Dead cats, dead rats
Think they're an aristocrat
Crap, now that's crap!


“Operation Acoustic Kitty” was a secret plan to turn cats into portable spying devices. However, the CIA only ever produced one Acoustic Kitty because it abandoned the project after a test with this cat went horribly wrong.

The Acoustic Kitty was a sort of feline-android hybrid—a cyborg cat. A surgeon implanted a microphone in its ear and a radio transmitter at the base of its skull. The surgeon also wove an antenna into the cat’s fur, writes science journalist Emily Anthes in Frankenstein’s Cat: Cuddling Up to Biotech’s Brave New Beasts.
CIA operatives hoped they could train the cat to sit near foreign officials. That way, the cat could secretly transmit their private conversations to CIA operatives.

“For its first official test, CIA staffers drove Acoustic Kitty to the park and tasked it with capturing the conversation of two men sitting on a bench,” Anthes writes. “Instead, the cat wandered into the street, where it was promptly squashed by a taxi”—not the outcome they were expecting.

I wasn't really confusing anything. I know well your Soviet obssession. I was trying to present you something that you yourself published but ignored due to your obssession.
