    Not so damn pointless when you're voting in the U.S. 



    Indeed. Exactly the people who can't afford the gas / the car to drive to a far office voting station tend to have pesky, ah, liberal/non-right wing views.

    Here's just one example, but there are many other groups:

    Which is where *gasp* Tor browser comes into play. A browser built specifically for anonymity and privacy. 


    Anything else? Because we can do this all day.

    Yes, we can play this all day long, as the Tor network already is filled with law enforcement and tax office nodes looking for people like you. This started years ago.

    Do keep up.


  3. Let's put it this way - I used to work for a DSL provider in Germany. When the police called and requested user details for a specified time and IP address, I was under strict orders from my CEO to answer their questions and give them the information. Just saying. IANAL.

    Every Democrat believes that if Hunter Biden broke the law, he should be punished.

    Every Republican believes that Donald T**** should be above the law.

    Any questions??


    Yes, I do.

    Do you actually read?

  7. But Charlie is interested in topics that affect the younger generation - climate change, sustainable food production... he already ran an organic farm in the 80s! Maybe there's some common ground after all.


    (IMHO he never should have been a royal - gentleman farmer maybe. ;) )


  8. I'm an American and thus certainly not a monarchist.
    I've lived with the image of Queen Elizabeth my entire life.

    She already headed "the firm" when I was a child, and I grew up with her young profile on the occasional  Canadian (and later British) coins I encountered.  She intrigued me for being a rare female Head of State in a world of powerful men, and I was greatly surprised to later learn about a very successful ER I as well.
    She was a last echo of the days of WW2, too. I admired her for having trained as a car mechanic back then. I admired her even more when she insisted on driving a Land Rover in Saudi Arabia , flaunting the local law that banned women from the steering wheel and making Crown Prince Abdullah very uncomfortable. ;)
    And her subtle snubs of Trump made me laugh. :D

    "thank you for thinking of me first with this opportunity. I really appreciate the experience. Unfortunately, however, I will not be available to tackle this task - unless you believe that <<insert any other important work here>> can wait for another week."


    That is a bog standard Scrum 101 answer. ;)

    I don't know how you'd prove it when he lives and works in Hungary. How is he still registered in Germany?


    I doubt if I'd send my kid to a deadbeat dad. What a loser. Are you sure he'll send him back?


    Here's the thing - if deadbeat ex simply keeps the child, in his mind he won't have to pay at all!

    I would be very wary of sending the child to Hungary, especially with that county's poor track record in respect to child abductions. Seriously.


    EDIT: +1 to Mike above!!

    Just think during winter time, will it be cheaper to go down the pub and have a few beers than stay at home, and keep the heating on a low setting ?



    That's exactly what people used to do in the old days!
