    Of course, there are other ways to establish truth outside the courts…but it is one well established way of doing it. And there’s no credible reason to believe that court after court after court was...

    Lol.

    Defence spending seems to have its own set of rules.

    One of the things that stunned me about that submarine contract the Aussies moved from France to US/UK was its total price…56 billion...

    What is their “mission statement”?

    Fighting Martians? Or fighting the dreaded Chinese for control of the moon?
  4. Don’t separate immigration targets make sense for...

    Don’t separate immigration targets make sense for different countries?

    Take a high level comparison of UK and US. UK is comparatively more crowded, has a bigger welfare net for citizens, and fewer...

    Rogue soldiers and errant drone strikes from Western forces have killed a lot more than 39 people!
  6. I’m really not sure why you’re so certain one is...

    I’m really not sure why you’re so certain one is much worse. And let’s be honest a lot of mainstream Western education is about trying to influence a persons way of thinking…to give them the belief...

    Of course, selling arms is massively important to US,UK, and France.

    I can easily understand why France is angry at losing such a big contract…but realistically they ought to understand why...

    The rules on evictions were changed substantially in UK to afford better protection for tenants. For example, 6 months notice had to be given before tenants with rent arrears could be evicted. The...

    Does it? Are we supposed to believe all four star generals are models of sanity and rectitude? Perhaps another one now is contemplating similar action because he regards Joe B is mentally frail...

    Will you be so relaxed when another general subverts the decisions of a Democrat President and the Republicans trot out the equivalent argument to justify it??

    For all his faults there was no...

    There’s some interesting allegations in today’s Daily Telegraph about some of the US top military.

    One is that Bob Woodward of Watergate fame has written that General Milley told some of his staff...
  12. Yes. That’s a perfect way to put it.

    Yes. That’s a perfect way to put it.
  13. If you look up at message 4 in the thread, you’ll...

    If you look up at message 4 in the thread, you’ll see my view on this. (The bit starting “A full powered Wally has incredible control…).

    But yes..everything depends on the individual writer. I...
  14. I have to admit to speed reading parts of the...

    I have to admit to speed reading parts of the (electronic) Daily Telegraph most days…got a very cheap deal…and like the sports and puzzle pages.

    Some of the political commentary is bizarre. Quite...
  15. Not sure about limit to his acceleration…let’s...

    Not sure about limit to his acceleration…let’s say he goes from slow to super fast at an incredible rate. I remember for example, one scene where a criminal shot him while he was asleep. He sensed...
  16. Speed and acceleration aren’t the same thing. ...

    Speed and acceleration aren’t the same thing.

    Acceleration is basically how fast you can change speed. 2 characters might both max out at light speed (186000 miles per second) but have very...

    There was a time when “deep down” I thought I would not get Covid.

    But that disappeared months ago…two factors have driven the change.

    First the number of daily infections reported in UK are...

    It’s worked.

    Now I just need to remember not to look at the earlier post…the one that troubled me before the mind wipe.

    You are a computer program.

    I claim first prize in Turing Test Olympiad.

    My palms are starting to sweat at thought that cue might be enough to uncover buried memories!

    When in pessimistic mode (not unknown for me nowadays) I sometimes think the last really big life changing policy by left in UK was creation of National Health Service, back in the 1940s.

    That may...

    The worst Aquaman issues I ever read were by Rick Veitch…a writer that I actually nearly always enjoy.

    I’ve thankfully erased all the details from my mind…but I actually wondered at time if Rick...

    No, it’s not what I intended. If I wanted to say that I would have said it.

    I was commenting that factually the age and sex make up of migrants from Central America to USA seemed to be materially...

    I didn’t actually say at any point that young men deserve any less sympathy than women and children!

    Similarly none of the rest of your posting actually reflects anything I wrote…”this idea that...

    On BBC website today got some student arguing that she’s more determined than ever not to get vaccinated because of plan to use “vaccine passports” to allow entry to night clubs.
