Re: Extinction Rebellion

So would Margaret Thatcher. Personally, I wouldn't mind Australia merging with New Zealand, provided Jacinda Ardern remains as Prime Minister rather than Scott Morrison.

Re: Xenophobic Nationalist, oh shut up already.

No, no they're not. They may be. What? "Someone" who wrote "we HAVE TO be racist, or we'll be overrun and overwhelmed" is maybe not racist after he also wrote "a feeling that the "Great Replacement" thesis might actually have some truth to it" is maybe not a racist, xenophobic, and/or nationalist f...

Re: Xenophobic Nationalist, oh shut up already.

Would anyone be surprised to learn a more robust argument lay beneath the person's own seemingly racist statement? Then why should I limit myself to the narrowest interpretation of it? Because it suits your purposes Hermit? My purposes? No. Try going by Svarty's own words. Here are two examples: " ...

Re: Xenophobic Nationalist, oh shut up already.

I'll leave them to that. My point stands on its own. Your point being that a person who says they're worried their culture is dying out under the influence of another culture being accused of being racist, xenophobic, and nationalist is batshit? I agree with you when that person opines the cause of...

Re: Xenophobic Nationalist, oh shut up already.

:lol: A picture of racist idiots with tiki torches! What's your point? They too are the ones who "complain their culture was at risk", are "worried their culture is dying out under the influence of another culture" and have "years of investment since that birth, and not only their investment, but t...

Re: Capitalism, The Best Solution to Poverty

Not much good here. All speed limits by March are being reduced to a maximum of 100 kph on all motorways due to emission restrictions. Super cars dont handle well at low speeds. Surely, you don't imagine that buyers of supercars purchase them in order to drive at the 200+ miles/hour speeds they are...

I'm not convinced it's actually real. But in these times it's too hard to tell.
It's real enough. Johnson even earnt a round of applause for his alleged reply.

Re: Airplane and airline stuff

Boing Boing excerpted their article from a story in the Corporate Crime Reporter . It's a longer read, but the additional details make the issues relating to the 787 Dreamliner a lot more worrying. After reading it I will certainly take active measures to not fly in them once they are airborne again...

Re: Global Climate Change Science News

So, Galaxian, tell us about your degree in science. I'll tell you about mine... I'm not about to engage in a pissing contest with you.
