  2. Conspiracy theorists

    Fake snow in Texas?   No.    
  3. Conspiracy theorists

    Great documentary series about conspiracy - shoulda plonked it here:   "Can’t Get You Out of My Head: An Emotional History of the Modern World"   "Love, power, money, ghosts of empire, conspiracies, artificial intelligence – and You. An emotional history of the modern world by Adam Curtis."       Found a new link: https://www.filmsforaction.org/watch/cant-get-you-out-of-my-head/     Stirring, eyeopening, worrying and lots more.

  10. Interesting that the UK toffs are selling their bag to the EU...
  11. Can’t Get You Out of My Head: An Emotional History of the Modern World   "Love, power, money, ghosts of empire, conspiracies, artificial intelligence – and You. An emotional history of the modern world by Adam Curtis."   A series of six documentary films that, if you have BBC (iPlayer) access, I urge any intelligent person to watch. This is shockingly good stuff.   The Guardian writes:       BBC link: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p093wp6h   And just because it is an incredibly insightful statement:   “The ultimate hidden truth of the world is that it is something we make. And could just as easily make differently – David Graeber 1961-2020”   Also (probably for a very limited time due to copyrights) on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMyctuzjrlI  
  12. Is anybody cutting their own hair?

      Yep, and I was pretty tipsy and it shows  
  13. White supremacists are the "greatest threat" in America       https://www.bbc.com/news/56039528
  14. Bicycle and car accident

    PKW-Fahrer in der Regel eine Teilschuld beim Fahrradunfall erhalten   https://www.bussgeldkatalog.de/geisterfahrer-fahrrad/#Geisterfahrer-Mit-dem-Fahrrad-einen-Unfall-verursacht   But I would still pay for some legal consultation, it may be the case that when the other Radweg in not clear of snow you are allowed to use the other side.   Also, I know when I did my driver's licence (decades years ago), we were told you are always guilty because you have to expect bikes in both directions.
  15. Car accident choose repair

      Yes, you are.
  16.   Maybe this helps     " Larry Flynt...mainly produces pornographic magazines, such as Hustler, pornographic videos, and three pornographic television channels named Hustler TV. Flynt fought several high-profile legal battles involving the First Amendment, and unsuccessfully ran for public office"   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Flynt   Not a pillar of society...
  17. Horrible, disgusting man.   Some of more his egregious views:     ...Jesus, it just goes on and on and on and...   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rush_Limbaugh  
  18.   Sweet: Implosion of the former Trump Plaza casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey    
  19. Coping with mind games

      Wishing you all the best Spidey. Have you considered applying for full custody? At ten, Lilly would also get a say in the matter and if she is on board with living with papa, then the threat alone may be enough.  I got custody of my kids after some wrangling.
  20.  "U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell called Donald Trump "practically and morally responsible" for his supporters' deadly attack on the Capitol"     https://news.yahoo.com/not-guilty-vote-mcconnell-says-215728379.html
  21. Jokes

    The term "Hob" refers to a male ferret.   I hate to think what's in the biscuit variety "Hobnobs"
  22. What made you laugh today?

      Thank you and stop making sense  
  23. What made you laugh today?

    Me neither and if there was one and I didn't get it by now, I fear the spontaneity may be lost
