Gold toilet stolen in Blenheim Palace burglary

How anyone can pretend an exhibit like this is art leaves me baffled. It is perhaps social commentary but it has no artistic merit in the slightest. To describe the representation of a clever conceit as art is to miss the point.

Slappy the circus clown who likes to travel the world and dress like a buffoon and juggle irrelevant global issues and is our current PM, perhaps you heard of him? Trudeau, ugh.
Next candidate
Mister invisible, he is so benign and just barely qualifies as a country leader it is sad, his platform is barely a global fix, he is however concerned about Canadian unity more than Slappy. But on the global front, zzzzzz

Where is God and Christ?

Well their certainly not on earth, or why would they have to return? I don't even think God has ever been to earth. I think he has sent one or two of his spirits here before, because he has seven spirits. But where is here?

Thought I'd watch the US open final cos I can.

It started at 9pm my time and is still going.

I wasn't expecting it to last this long, but what a good fight his opponent is putting up, can see he is going to be an amazing player

Amazing tennis and fitting for the night before the funeral of a good friend who I used to watch tennis with.

She always backed Federer and me Nadal. I know she'd be cheering this opponent just to wind me up.... [Read More]

Going through a bit of a time at the moment and I haven't slept much in about a week and I think I've had maybe three meals?
I'm after some advice on how to acquire an appetite and relax through a very stressful period. I don't know what to do . Even alcohol isn't working.

Sincerely held religious beliefs or moral convictions

There's a news article on the consequence of legalizing discrimination on the grounds of "sincerely held religious beliefs or moral convictions".

A US interracial couple was turned away by a wedding venue because the owner said their union went against her Christian beliefs, video shows.

American cheese

Aug 31, 2019 - 12:40 AM - by spot
spot's Avatar
This thread will ignore anything stringy, plasticky, or aimed at children or cooking.

Cheese is very wonderful and I have no doubt there are producers in America whose product would please me. I've never seen it though.

My suspicion is that the volume produced nationally is trivial, that it's a specialist commodity, that it's difficult to find for most Americans. I'd be interested to hear the actuality from those who shop there and like cheese.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammad Trial

Aug 31, 2019 - 12:32 AM - by spot
spot's Avatar
The trial date has been announced. 11th January 2021. What we in the trade call fifteen months from now.

What is scandalous is that the trial will be performed - note my hint toward scripted theater - at Guantanamo Bay instead of in a public courthouse where it would be open to scrutiny.

This is a show trial. The very name "Camp Justice" ought to be enough to have the trial aborted.

High Speed 2 review

Aug 21, 2019 - 2:37 AM - by spot
spot's Avatar
If Boris does nothing else useful in his role as Prime Minister, the reconsideration of HS2 makes him well worth the effort and worry. HS2 has been a white elephant ever since it was a one-page blue-sky suggestion twenty years ago.

The idea of upgrading a single route on the rail system from London to Scotland should have been background maintenance. Instead of that, HS2 has ballooned into a £50bn pig-trough and, given the government's overspend record on massive projects, it's... [Read More]

I am trying to find the collected plays, if such a volume exists.

I am much taken with Joanna Baillie's poems. The earlier 1790 book is on Gutenberg.

And spent eve's fading light;
Where shall I find some friendly shed
To screen me from the night?

Animal Cruelty or not . . .

. . . . . So anyway, here on July 4th a couple (man & woman) lit a dog on fire!! Extreme cruelty, right? The woman was arrested, and they are still looking for the man. Here's the thing. The cops say the dog was already dead, before they lit it on fire. It's a stupid thing they did, but since the dog was already dead, is that really cruelty? What Say you?

Mass Mudering sprees in USA!

Within a 24 hour period, two mass mudering sprees occurred. Totally out of control in USA! Well it happened again, in Dayton Ohio, after happening in El passo Texas mall, another mass shooting spree! At least 29 killed, and many injured!!! It seems it will never end!!! It can never end, due to the hundreds of thousands of all kinds of guns already existing out there in our world, unfortunately many of them are owned by wackos. Adding new laws, and or revising existing laws is futile!... [Read More]

Among other things, every US news report I've seen about this refers to the Carabinieri as "Italy’s military police" or "Paramilitary". Where does that notion originate? The Carabinieri are... [Read More]

On the solution of the Northern Ireland backstop

Jul 26, 2019 - 7:51 AM - by spot
spot's Avatar
I have, I think, a way forward.

The Republic of Ireland and the UK are, until Halloween, both members of the same European Union and as such have no customs border or regulation disparity with each other.

The UK will stop being a member of the EU at the end of October.

It is a political necessity that there should continue to be no restriction of the movement of goods and services between the Republic of Ireland and the whole of the UK.

Sequestering carbon

Jul 23, 2019 - 6:38 AM - by spot
spot's Avatar
I have a suggestion.

There's a resonant electromagnetic frequency at which carbon dioxide dissociates into a molecule of oxygen and a very reactive free carbon atom. What the carbon atom usually does is to grab the nearest oxygen molecule and bind to it, but not if it's offered a carbon bond as an alternative.

So if we provide a transparent flat carbon substrate and beam a tuned laser through from beneath, to skim the substrate surface along the underside, all... [Read More]
