    An Internal White House Memo Warned of Large-Scale Coronavirus Deaths Months Ago     Trump has blood on his hands. This dumbass was laser-focused on golfing a rallies when he should have been doing his goddamn job. There is zero denying it.
  3. Coronavirus

    Trump says he's going to pull funding from the WHO because they didn't give enough warning about COVID-19. That empty threat lasted for an entire 16 minutes. That mook. What laughingstocks he and his supporters are.    
  4. Buying property in Germany

      No, I think that the prices reflect the market conditions and I realize how scarce good properties in Munich are and how much money, local and international, there is in this city. I last bought in 2017: a property which I’m very happy about. However, it took two years of business cases and creating databases, and easily more than thirty physical visits to get there. I don’t feel the itch to put the work into it at the moment and don’t need to. If there’s a downturn and it becomes easier to get the good stuff I’ll be obviously tempted.  
  5. Meaning unclear to me - is it my fault?

    Wording is not  ambiguous but could be restated as follows if it is clearer:   The Sabine case held that gas gathering contracts are rejectable in Chapter 11 because they do not create easements that "run with the land".   Background on 'Sabine' and on the Alta Mesa and Badlands stuff that Alex references which will probably help with the rest of your translation.

  7. Meaning unclear to me - is it my fault?

    The contracts are void during a bankruptcy because no permanent easement exists. I would have to know what part in a bankruptcy proceeding this property takes. If you have a lawyer, they could check if the Alta Mesa or Badlands exceptions apply.   ETC: rejectable to void

      Bill Gates' record is mixed.   Anyone who doubts that he is absolutely ruthless should look at his record from the eighties and nineties.   His foundation has done some good things, but to many, he is the face of a modern day eugenics comparable to movements in the 1920s in the US and the UK.      His support for tech which would lead to a universal digital ID is quite public even if your vocal and very loyal fanclub here on TT reflexively rejects everything you write.    https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/business/india-business/aadhaar-doesnt-pose-any-privacy-issue-gates/articleshow/64012833.cms   https://www.businessinsider.com/bill-gates-denies-biometric-id-breaches-human-rights-2018-5?r=DE&IR=T

      The early 1920s presented some of the most challenging conditions in several countries.    I would guess that in much of Europe the conditions were a product of WWI rather than the pandemic.    In the US, there was a post war depression resulting in a lot of unemployed workers and ruined farmers.   It doesn't get the attention it deserves as it is overshadowed by the depression of the 1930s.     Germany's hyperinflation until early 1924 and the accompanying misery is legendary.  Austria, Hungary, Russia, and Poland also experienced hyperinflation around this time.    The financial mechanisms from an external power which enabled the Roaring Twenties in Germany are discussed on other boards.    Suffice it to say, the dark times of 1922-23 had a profound and enduring effect.   That memory had an enormous impact in the early 1930s.    Without going into too much detail, looking at the 1920s playbook to see what is coming is no longer simply a thought experiment.   Government intervention,  supply chain damage and/or reconfiguration and mass unemployment will probably provide some unpleasant surprises.   That is a dark path, but one that cannot be dismissed.    
  10. What does the following mean:   "The Sabine case outcome (issued in 2016 by a New York bankruptcy court) held that gas gathering contracts did not create easements that "run with the land" and are therefore rejectable in Chapter 11."   Does it mean that because the contracts are rejectable beacuse they didn´t create easements? Or does it mean the contracts didn´t create easements and therefore aren´t rejectable?   Is the wording of this sentence as ambiguous as I think it is or am I merely "standing on the hose" ?
