Exuse me please Mr. WEBMaster. My message is big and i have to send some part`s.

kgdJan 2, 2010

Why I say it. Because I disclose at all nature (mystery) of tornado about 4 years ago. (Movie I’d see much more later.) Now early warning can be absolutely real. Even more, protection towns, townships in Your motherland as a single unit is completely real! And there is no need to dangerous and costly hunting for tornado. I made my discovery in the laboratory. And it can be tested in hundreds of labs. And I inform him about. And other Authorities too. But they absolutely ignore my messages. Because of his ambitions. Because, my priority have to be fixed. (For proper, correct development, evolution of the discovery.)
