Has Moby heard about illeism? I'm sure you'll google it then come back and tell me you do but here's a brief take on people who regularly refer to themselves in the 3 rd person;

Childlike, insecure, removed from reality, narcissistic, inflated ego, concerned about their social image, problematic in relationships, craving respect....etc.

I've noticed you do this often and find it quite interesting.

But moby knows better than my inlaws, whom actually live there. I should believe him

Moby's seen the bridge, recently and knows folks who work on the bridge ....   :chuckle:

So Russian News (on 1tv) says (according to my inlaws): RU-Govt promises to have the car-part finished before the main season starts.

How does you seeing the bridge invalidate this statement in any way? Other than that you might think it hard to keep that promise?

Ri-ight, you being the one telling us it would be open in Dec 2017 or this month ..... ?

1/ so it's NOT open, yet  - one of your sources and (not for the first time she's been wrong [ water supply? ] your M-i-L ....)

2/ You aren't the only person with contacts on the peninsula or passing through it on the way home to Kherson and like I said - I have seen it and NO WAY is it opening real soon

3/ You do know that you can watch pervy kanal's news online and you'd know not to keep quoting your M-i-L (  AGAIN - for FACTS) ...www.most.life  "2018-2019


К концу 2018 года завершится строительство и планируется запуск движения по автомобильной части моста, в 2019 году – по железнодорожной части." ...


TV ? www.1tv.ru ...chose the Republic of Crimea option ..

Aha, our resident trailer-park arm-chair 'expert' on the FSU ( and ladies ) has joined the action ....   :chuckle:

Same question.... kindly point out why - if Markje was 'right' why there's been no announcement of the road bridge opening ? 

Isn't it time you left your PC screen and came to see what you think you're talking about ?

My inlaws in Crimea said that the Russian Gov't promised to have bridge open for road-traffic before summer-season starts.


"The ( road) bridge is expected to be opened by December 2018 for testing and vehicular traffic, and to be fully operational by June 2019"

The rail bridge has suffered more design issues and is scheduled to open by the end of 2019

Even Putin says this

http://russianconstruction.com/news-1/24276-russian-government-postpones-kerch-bridge-railway-exploitation-for-a-year.html

Tass.ru reports that the bridge will open in May. That seems conveniently in time for the main holiday season.

Putin himself said that if the workers get it done, he will personally be there to open the bridge.

And yes, I quoted myself, especially for Moby whom seems to think i said something else on Facebook.

If the topic was travel to Mars can we infer that Moby would know people building the space craft?

Just spotted this.. I do ... How DID you know ?

As has already been pointed out by 2 posters - you quoted your inlaws 'heard it' ( Dec'17 ) - yet I posted from the local version of Pervy kanal ( 1 st channel ) that suggested you're sources were 'ill-advised' - as were you to quote from the link you posted ( Dec'17)


It is now nearly April - 4.5 months gone - and is the road bridge open ?


Wiser posters will note I quoted a more reliable source - the official bridge site - which still says 2018, but I told you latter half of 2018

You've also suggested opening for the Presidential elections - that's passed, too


MY source works on the project and IF it opens in May 2018 -  who has been a more accurate source? ...  Me - a month out or you ... six months out !


The rail bridge - as also mentioned - has encountered issues - involving structural design mods and possibly since the main arch was fitted. 


I only posted on FB as you invited me - mentioning me by name ?  Then you threatened to remove my posts - which proved you wrong ...;)

Right, but you in your previous messages said that I *personally* was wrong, and so were my *inlaws* , whilst both of us were just quoting the local news. If they are wrong, it doesn't matter because no-one controls them


It is now nearly April - 4.5 months gone - and is the road bridge open ?


Wiser posters will note I quoted a more reliable source - the official bridge site - which still says 2018, but I told you latter half of 2018
Nope, you said December 2018. As quoted from the official bridge site.

You've also suggested opening for the Presidential elections - that's passed, too
Yes, as a possibility, not as a reality. One can hope in this day and age.

MY source works on the project and IF it opens in May 2018 -  who has been a more accurate source? ...  Me - a month out or you ... six months out !
You, still seven months away from december. Me , I dunno, I just quoted other sources and hope for the best. (I.E. before season starts, as putins election has indeed come and gone).

The rail bridge - as also mentioned - has encountered issues - involving structural design mods and possibly since the main arch was fitted. 
Glad we agree on something

I only posted on FB as you invited me - mentioning me by name ?  Then you threatened to remove my posts - which proved you wrong ...;)
Yes, I can remove posts on facebook, as I have told you. But I have not threathened you to do so, nor did i remove anything. I just *again* proved you wrong when you said I couldn't do this on facebook.

I was advised yesterday, that the new bridge will be officially opened today..

Initially for cars and light trucks, and possible Large Trucks from October..

Lets wait and see if the information is correct..

You did - you inferred you could remove my posts - which would demonstrate you don't like being challenged as to the veracity of your sources


Right, but you in your previous messages said that I *personally* was wrong, and so were my *inlaws* , whilst both of us were just quoting the local news. If they are wrong, it doesn't matter because no-one controls them

You REALLY need to check your posts #93/4 ...  You claimed - she would know...  so much for Dec '17 / Jan '18

A kind mod may protect you from having to say " Moby's source - the official site - is more accurate"


It is now nearly April - 4.5 months gone - and is the road bridge open ?


Wiser posters will note I quoted a more reliable source - the official bridge site - which still says 2018, but I told you latter half of 2018

Nope, you said December 2018. As quoted from the official bridge site.

I said latter half of 2018 - The ROAD bridge has a weight limit - light traffic only.





I only posted[ed] on FB as you invited me - mentioning me by name ?  Then you threatened to remove my posts - which proved you wrong ...;)

Yes, I can remove posts on facebook, as I have told you. But I have not threathened you to do so, nor did i remove anything. I just *again* proved you wrong when you said I couldn't do this on facebook.

Mark.

Then the wording of your message on FB is not clear - it is certainly NOT the impression you gave to two members from here. I am quite well aware of what you can / can't do with FB... Only you claimed what you could do ....


Why all the fuss?  Just because I had other ears to the ground?
