Nice post! D

Short back & sides Sir !..
The One Ring was forged by the Dark Lord Sauron during the Second Age to gain dominion over the free peoples of Middle-earth.. In disguise as Annatar, or "Lord of Gifts", he aided the Elven smiths of Eregion and their leader Celebrimbor in the making of the Rings of Power..He then forged the One Ring himself in the fires of Mount Doom..A person wearing the Ring would enter a shadowy world revealing the physical world from a different aspect, and from which physical objects were harder to see..The Ring slowly but inevitably corrupted its bearer, regardless of the bearer's initial intent..One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them...

Hillary Diane Rodham was born on October 26, 1947, at Edgewater Hospital in Chicago, Illinois.. She was raised in a United Methodist family, first in Chicago and then, from the age of three, in suburban Park Ridge, Illinois.. Her father, Hugh Ellsworth Rodham (1911–1993), was of Welsh and English descent; he managed a successful small business in the textile industry..Her mother, Dorothy Emma Howell (1919–2011), was a homemaker of English, Scottish, French, and Welsh descent...Hillary has two younger brothers, Hugh and Tony..Rodham then entered Yale Law School.. There she served on the editorial board of the Yale Review of Law and Social Action..In the late spring of 1971 she began dating Bill Clinton, Also a law student at Yale..

Sir Edmund Percival Hillary KG ONZ KBE (20 July 1919 – 11 January 2008) was a New Zealand mountaineer, explorer and philanthropist..Upon the outbreak of World War II Hillary applied to join the Royal New Zealand Air Force, but withdrew the application before it was considered because he was "harassed by [his] religious conscience"..In 1943 the Japanese threat in the Pacific and the arrival of conscription finally undermined his pacifist inclination and Hillary joined the RNZAF as a navigator serving in No. 6 Squadron RNZAF and then No. 5 Squadron RNZAF on Catalina flying boats. In 1945 he was sent to Fiji and to the Solomon Islands where he was badly burnt in a boat accident, after which he was repatriated to New Zealand..The route to Everest was closed by Chinese-controlled Tibet, and Nepal only allowed one expedition per year..Following his ascent of Everest, Hillary devoted most of his life to helping the Sherpa people of Nepal through the Himalayan Trust, which he founded. Through his efforts, many schools and hospitals were built in Nepal...,60697486w policy that will take the place of emigration, and we have collected enough practical experience to do it well, is evacuation..Which differs from emigration in what way?.. Evacuation to where?..
