I hope this was friendlier than it looks

Obama gives Putin his best death stare at G20 summit.

Obama gives Putin his best death stare: Tense moment the world's two most powerful men squared up at the G20 summit in China.

Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin have met for 'pull-aside' meetings at the G20 summit inChina but failed to agree on a solution to the Syrian civil war.

Washington and Moscow support opposing sides in the bloody five-year conflict, which has left 300,000 people dead and forced millions to flee.

The two leaders discussed Syria at closed multilateral meetings but could not reach a deal to ease fighting in the war-torn region.

But in their final face-to-face meeting before Obama leaves office in January next year, they agreed to keep up negotiations over a cease-fire agreement.

A  senior US administration official said they had a longer-than-expected discussion during a 'constructive' meeting. 

It comes as Syrian government troops - backed by Russia - resumed their siege of the city of Aleppo.
  • Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin have failed to agree on solution in Syria
  • Comes as Syrian government troops resumed their siege of Aleppo
  • But two leaders have agreed to keep up negotiations to reach agreement 
  • A deal to get aid to Aleppo's civilians and at least partially stop Russian and Syrian bombardments had looked likely, before talks collapsed

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
