  1. Bitcoin - a decentralised digital currency

    Maybe a feature, but it's a feature that lost me 10 bitcoin when mtgox collapsed.
  2. Never had a problem with German doctors   But Irish dentists in the 70s. Many would fill perfectly healthy teeth to increase revenue. That would sorta be like a doctor amputating a healthy limb to make more money.  I don't know if all Irish dentists did this, but I had it tried on me. Used the get out card: My mother wants me to go to our regular dentist for fillings.   And a friend of mine had every tooth filled. He dentist actually went to prison when a teacher noticed an high trend of fillings among certain children.
  3. The Vegetarian's Dilemma

      I'm not making personal comments about anyone. @MikeMelga & I have crossed swords on a number of occasions regarding vegetarianism and Portuguese cuisine. Pre countering his arguments is good old debate, not getting personal. Stop trying to find strife where there is none.
  4. The Vegetarian's Dilemma

    Ah yes, Mike does love the story I tell that I went to Lisbon the only vegetarian food was chips and Russian salad. Portugal is truly the worst country in Europe for a vegetarian (no vegetarians don't eat fucking fish). Believe it or not Mongolia is however worse.   Apparently the Portuguese style of cooking meat is to rely on the best, freshest cuts of meat, and cook it without spices. The supremacy that is Portuguese cuisine doesn't export because outside Portugal they can't get the quality required to just lazily cook with no preparation.
  5. The Vegetarian's Dilemma

      Now when I express that I'm an environmental nut, and try not to use disposable plastic, and cycle a lot I immediately get whataboutism But you still fly   Well I haven't for 1.5 years. But better to fly and avoid plastic, than fly and not avoid plastic.    Doing something good does not become irrelevant just because you do something not good.   He looks after stray dogs. Yes but he's unfaithful to his wife. Doesn't change the benefit the dogs get.
  6. The Vegetarian's Dilemma

    Vegetarians would not eat bugs. Or fish It is a bit typical that a vegetarian thread has quickly degenerated into how awesome meat is.   Why don't virginity thread descend into swinging orgies? Or world peace into pub riots?
  7. Brexit: The fallout

    Surprised the      quote hasn't reared its ugly head more often
  8. Coronavirus

    I asked which vaccine, and she said Pfizer or the other one. Not Astra Zenica. It seems she felt the need to assure me it was not Astra Zenica. I then asked her was the other one Moderna and she said yes.   If given a choice between Astra Zenica today, and Pfizer/Moderna in 2 weeks, I would wait. If the wait was 6 months I'd the take the Astra Zenica. But Pfizer/Moderna is obviously superiour for the recipient.   I get some of the other ones are innovative and don't need cryogenic storage. But I trust them here to have proper cold storage, and don't care about the difficult logistic they have to go through. I care about side effects and above all efficacy. 
  9. Coronavirus

    I got my appointment today for 27 May at 09:12 It will be Moderna or Pfizer. Not Astra Zenica
  10. Why are you happy today?

    I just saw a headline on CNN about the Voyager spacecrafts, and clicked it with dread.   These spacecraft are not making any more news, it could only be an announcement that something went wrong and one has shut down. Probably lack of power, or even something catastrophic.   But no, it's a real headline. Almost 50 years after being launched, and almost a lightday from earth they've made a new discovery. Modulation in plasma density that doesn't come from our sun.   They're still doing science even though they've officially left the solar system, and are now galactic wanderers.  
  11. Oktoberfest 2021 cancelled!!

      The Oktoberfest is seared into our collective human memory. Because it happens in September. So it's bloody stupid to call it October.   So stupid it's genius

    You can have a patent, and license it for free to towns who follow your rules, and bounce business back to you. And enforce it on countries that are trying to hijack your brand.   A patent will not be dangerous.
  13. I object in the strongest possible terms, this dreadful slur upon @john g.'s character He is not mature.
  14. Switzerland and Iceland who are not part of the EU are most definitely European.  Ireland is the most enthusiastically EU. We have to be after getting billions in subsidy.    Greenland is part of the EU but probably not european Guadeloupe, French Guiana, Martinique, Réunion, and Mayott are French, thus EU but certainly not European.    And Antartica is North American, European, Australian, South American, Russian and apologies to any continents I've forgotten.
  15. What on earth does the UK's European status have to do with President Biden? Can't you peeps stay on topic!   I've a mind to report the lot of you, starting with myself.
