Re: East coast fuel shortage

Th last time we had a fuel crisis was 1972/73. Don't remember anything since then. The dangers of connecting everything to the Internot. This is likely down to either a critical failure in a refinery somewhere or plain old greed and profiteering. Why can't critical resources just have their own LAN...

Re: 5614 post

What amazes, ans pleases, me is when we get a post out of the blue from someone who has not posted for a while showing that we ( but Carl may ) don't realise who is reading our posts. I suppose I could figure that out, but don't bother as it's really none of my business -- in the same vein that I s...

Re: East coast fuel shortage

Great. Another phony fuel crisis. This'll be, what, the third or fourth time that Big Oil has done this to us?

Time for an other big hike in fuel prices! (Perhaps this'll do for the Stupid Urban Vehicle (SUV)/Chelsea Tractor once and for all.)

Re: Article in The Sunday Times

The biggest issue I have with the proposed costume isn't the price, it's the fact that I find it utterly ugly to look at.

Denim <> male any longer.

Re: Covid 19

There is still no motive apparent, and without motive it is difficult to have a crime. Too, extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. Please provide it, along with links to reputable sources. Until there is decent transparency and evidence it remains squarely within the realm of conspiracy t...

Ouch! What about me?

However, I've been at it a good deal longer... (and still likely need a life.)

Re: Covid 19

I’m happy to consider cogent arguments, backed up by a posteriori evidence. I’m less inclined to support conspiracy theories. People are rubbish at keeping secrets. Right -- and this is why the conspiracy theory of the faked moon landings has been disproved dozens of times in the past. People are v...

Re: Covid 19

If you follow the links, all medical documents, the impression arrises that covid was created by the Chinees with American money. I'll leave each to his/her own conclusions. And what would the motive have been -- especially as biological weapons are widely reviled the world over? It doesn't make se...

Re: What comes after????????

I'm not letting go of my long hair. Full stop. It's a matter of pride, and one that caused a lot of consternation in my family when my guardians were still alive. So sad, and so needless. I'd been forced to have a buzz-cut my entire youth, and when I first got the chance rebelled against that insult...

Re: What comes after????????

A thing of nightmares... not sure I'm going to fall asleep tonight! :D I'm not sure about this meme. True enough, most guys don't sport enough hair to have decent "up-dos" done, but in the interest of full equality why should the option be denied? The modern notion that men Shall Have Shorn Hair is...

Re: Teenager wearing a dress harassed by inbred Tennessee hillbilly

Never mind men in skirts it would be real good if we could foresee a world where such things did not occur at all. This is one of the ideas I advocate for -- making the mere thought of committing such a deed unthinkable. The old thinking that ever-more draconian measures will solve the problem has ...

What makes a skirt a "female skirt"?
This is down it the garment's context in Western Civilisation where only women conventionally wear skirts. Full stop. It's really as simple as that, and that's what we're fighting -- a slavish devotion to custom -- and also why it's such a big hill to take.

Re: Fear........

Fear: False Evidence Appearing Real. One needs to beware of such statements, because fear is a basic human emotion that remains, to this day, a critical component in our survival. Taken to an extreme, it's counterproductive, but at its core it's that nagging feeling that's telling you something's w...

But do not drop it all in the trash either, because as those who study these things know, "Past is prelude." Learn from the past, so that you don't repeat silly mistakes.
