    Qanon: high level intel, AI or LARP?!

    Trumps mo is to have won before his opponents even know that there is battle looming. Many years ago I read one of his books where he talked about the Central Park Ice Rink fiasco. The way he put it, he somehow found himself at a meeting where he got pushed into agreeing to underwrite the project. This was after years of seeing the project drag on from his apartment window. Knowing what I now know about him, I suspect that he already had plans in place before he went to that meeting. Including how to make a tidy profit for himself.

    The bling fashion started in the US. When a drug dealer etc. gets arrested, they can have their bank accounts frozen so no money for bail or a lawyer. They can use whatever bling they were wearing when arrested though.

    Using the half your age plus 7 rule in reverse, she is 26. Double her age minus 7 means that she should be looking at 45 yo blokes.

    Trump's progress

    In the movie Children of Men, a guys ears are ringing after being in proximity to an explosion. He gets told that the frequency of the ringing he hears is a frequency that he will never hear again. Probably just cool sounding bs because movie but I keep wondering if there is any truth to that.

    The cult of corbyn

    There is a huge groundswell among members to shift Labour policy, fight Tory Brexit We have a remainer PM supposed to lead Brexit and a Brexiteer opposition leader who is supposed to be leading the fight against Brexit.

    Islamification of Europe

    It occurs to me that we have living proof that all Jews, all Muslims and many US Christians freely admit that God is fallible. If God was believed to be infallible, parents wouldn't be wanting to have their baby son circumcised.

    Taxis can be cost effective. I briefly drove a taxi in Preston, late 80s. Not a taxi conscious town at the time. 4 lads would get the bus into town without ever thinking of getting a taxi. 'I'm no rock star, I can't afford taxis. Couldn't explain to them that 4 bus fares came to more than the price of the taxi. Oh well. With EVs, the councils could ban private traffic in the town/city centers and have a fleet of taxis. Park up on the outskirts and get an EV taxi. Said taxis would only travel within the zero private driving zone. With subsidised taxis, the drivers settle can be low enough for them to make a living from a very low fare structure.

    Another term for it is 'fitness test'. It's a long road and you are the vehicle she has chosen to get her there. Damn right she is going to kick the tyres and investigate any strange mechanical noises that might spell trouble ahead.

    Fat shamed by Piers Morgan

    It will be much cheaper in the long term. Otherwise, there will always be a new generation of fatties for the NHS to pay for. Kicking the can further down the road helps you in the short term but as the mantra goes: Think of the children.

    Fat shamed by Piers Morgan

    Why do you care more about people that have given up on themselves than you care about children? At least give the kids a chance to grow up a normal size. Any extra expense for the NHS will be a one off. Let this gross generation of fatties croak and then have no more of it. Ever.

    Fat shamed by Piers Morgan

    Fat shaming is good form imo. Every time that a child hears an adult fattie get shamed they are less likely to become obese themselves. Let's have the kids hear lots and lots of fat adults get shamed for their eating habits. Think of the children and show no mercy.

    Fucking Funerals

    It's partly responsible for the drug epidemic. Unemployed yoofs with not a book in the house end up dossing and getting up in time for the afternoon soaps. Once they become a druggie, their life has purpose. You can tell them to quit their habit all you want but what they fuck do they have that is worth getting back to?

    fwir, the Shias are on the tolerant side. afaik, it isn't them talking about throwing gays off tall buildings etc. Please correct me if I'm wrong on this. I reckon that most of us are ok with immigrants that buy into the social contract. Speak English, make an effort to be neighbourly and respect the rule of law. Do Shias fit the bill on this? If so, should we help them defeat the Shiites?

    The Second Invasion of America

    I would guess that some of that is down to family pressure from the folks back home.
