Fancy a relaxed boozy holiday? Keep well away from Great Britain


Sure, but the women are warm.


They're a venerable freemarket thinktank, me old commie boot-lick. Both individually and collectively, a good deal smarter than you, I'd care to wager. Now, enough snide sniping comrade, and get back to doing nothing much of any economic importance, before the boss notices and fires your whining over-paid and -entitled carcass.

Graffiti 'dying out' as kids dump spray cans for Instagram, Twitter etc


C18th Pub Bog Doggerel proves otherwise


Places like these

Were made for the ease

Of every good-fellow in common,

But the man who writes

On the wall as he shites

Has a pleasure far greater than woman.

For he's eased in his body

And pleased in his mind

When he leaves both a turd

And some verses behind.

The author clearly has no idea about the cost of paint and phat caps either. A proper graf-artist will have a collection of many, many colours and caps - just like a canvas and paper artist does oils and acrylics or watercolours or inks.

Apple Store in Pennsylvania hit with discrimination complaint


Rubbish. Probable cause - it's why the police target the groups they know are involved in whichever crime/disturbance/violence whatever. Occam's Razor. It's very, very rarely incorrect, especially in relation to street and petty crime.

The cold hard facts of reality are cold, hard, facts. Black teenagers steal electronics goods from shops - they must be watched closely when present in groups. This is common sense backed up by cold, hard, fact.

I'd go as far as to bet you actively avoid groups of black teenagers (you're clearly a white SJW) for the very same reasons.

All the animals come out at night - whores, skunk pussies, buggers, queens, fairies, dopers, junkies, sick, venal. Someday a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets. I go all over.

Re: War on ${HotTopic}

But you are mistaken sir, both the ascendency of the God-Emperor [Praise Kek!] and the Up-coming Exit via Brexit are shining examples of the war on smartass which is being won all over the world, I think you'll find. Is the Netherlands the next to wake up and reject smartass thinking? Followed tout de suite by France? I love it.

Re: Everything counts, in large amounts

What? You seriously believe that the Dems and their pet Deep State DON'T employ lying, distraction, misinformation, disinformation, media manipulation, and all the rest? Balance, Nikki. The foul Clintons are now history. This is a good thing. The Dems are in tatters, this is a better thing. The Repubs do not know which way to look, this is even better yet.

This past election was legal, and proper and binding. To deny this is to deny the very last vestige of democracy, free choice, whether that means rejection of YOUR flavour of soft despotism or not.

The sooner the whole bent, pointless two-party state system of sh1t and spin is torn down and rebuilt the better. Centrist neo-marxist globalism powered by crony not-so-free mercantilism, built upon debt, is poison. The toxicity most damaging these days is the utter lack of representative governance in the western world (the UK and EU are no better) coupled with state surveillance of citizens, the like of which the NKVD and Stasi would be agog in awe.

The complete lack of trust in the cabals of bureaucracy is not 'engineered', it is felt and believed by real people who have chosen to exercise the little power they have, at the ballot-box, in their millions, to send a very telling message to the globalist controllers and their political puppets. Enough. Clinton and the poison of Dem socialist thought (and its insistence on ever greater socail control, such is their diktat) was the last straw in the USA, the drastic mismanagement of the EU, with particular respect to immigration: the war on nations and their peoples, will prove to be the reason in Europe.

People really feel these things, the corrosion of culture and nationhood, the pointlessness of the thin consumer identities they are being sold, the compliance they must show or else, no wonder they actually have no trust in anything which is vomited forth by spokesweasels and think tanks and experts and career politicians - that time has been and gone.

I foresee a split along cultural and geographic lines in the UK, and in the USA, Europe is dead already. The time for change has come.


Re: Everything counts, in large amounts

Clinton lied, and more egregiously to boot. Outfuckingrageously, in point of fact; Sanders getting the knife, the Emails, her ailing health, warmongering over Iraqi and Libyan oil, the engineered removal of Gaddafi, the Benghazi US murders, the snipers she bravely faced in Bosnia and on and on and on. She's been lying since Bubba and she were up to their dirty necks in bent real estate in Whitewater, and the lying HAS NEVER STOPPED.

Balance, Nikki, is everything.

Bingo! You win this thread, hands down.

Iconic Land Rover Defender may make a comeback by 2019


Re: Belgian Guns

True. 7.62 is a better battlefield round and common with our GPMGs so no supply issues, but the L1A1 SLR longs were unweildy in wagons and the round had too much velocity for use in Norn Iron, it tended to go through the target and then the house across the street as well. 5.56 was touted as the future NATO round which is why we were stuck with it, common to the Septics with their Armalites. Naturally the MOD fvcked it up and commenced churning out the crap and expensive British-made SA80 instead of simply buying up boat loads of cheap yankee bang-sticks - pure jingoism. Our poor buggers will be stuck with that rusty stoppage magnet for a long while yet.

You clearly know absolutely nothing about what you pecked out on your keyboard there, champ. Leave it to the big boys. There is no strength in 'diversity', and least of all in a tight combat unit.

Re: Out of date...

Yep, sadly Old El Reg has been turned inside out editorially, where once we had daring, counter-cultural cheek and searching questions were asked of the status quo, we now suffer bizarre left-wing biases (generally the cause of entryism by SJWs or of disinterested editorial management) and the offering is weaker and more high-pitched in its virtue-signalling. Perhaps its the american influence, there is a lot of mindless political kowtowing going on. Wouldn't have occurred like this in Lewis Page's day.

Re: Less than a week in the position...

You do understand that these 'minor acts of resistance' will be as nothing once the secessions begin. When mid-America has had enough of the deep state fvcking them around and the PITA whining from the election's losing side on both metrosexual coastal city zones - they WILL act. When it finally erupts there will be floods of pinko-illiberal blood. Civil war is where this points and Trump's Americans will be victorious.

Russia accuses hostile foreign powers of plot to undermine its banks


Re: Hoisted on their own petard


One can only be hoisted 'with' one's own petard, not 'on' it.

'On' it presupposes an object upon which one is somehow resting or supported - both of which, the object and oneself, thence being elevated, together. To be hoisted 'with' one's own petard - as written by old Shakey himself - is to be hoisted - thrown into the air - 'by' the explosive device one has prepared to bring violence to another party.

Re: Vaping isn't cool

Bingo. All the hysterical farrago and wrist-flapping associated with eleventh-hand smoke pales into watery insignificance given the fug of carcinogenic particulates which are airborne in all of our urban anthills.

Diesel (yep, that's all those green buses and trains at fault) is amongst a massive variety of petrochems and other inorganic pollutant nasties including plastics and metals, all happily cycled through the mouths, noses and lungs of all town and city dwellers - and not one peep from the media/'charity' sock-puppets. Not one.

Smerking tabs is personal choice, simply being alive in the presence of motorways, bus-lanes and train stations is not.

Will AI spell the end of humanity? The tech industry wants you to think so


Re: It will be a coin toss - A.I. or A.H.?

"AH will almost certainly do so, having been infected with human-like behavior."

This statement is one hundred percent bilge. Human behaviour cannot 'infect'.

Human behaviour is the external manifestation of our human internal processes. Those processes are chemical and biological in nature. The chemistry is the electric bath of hormones, including adrenaline, in which our minds soak - and to which we are held in complete thrall. The biological part has been evolved over millennia, we are our lizard antecedents, we are our monkey ancestors, we are ancient. Our behaviour is largely guided by those millions of years, which have shaped our biology, our brains and nervous systems to ensure survival. We react subliminally and instantly to threats and opportunities, our motor control and conscious minds are way, way behind our ancient brains when we give agency to our biological impulses.

Your AH will be programmed as all machines are programmed. In simple machine code. GIGO. A set of commands. It is no more than that. Machines with enough complexity can be given the option of choosing which command to execute given a set of immediate environmental circumstances as machine-sensed - however, this is not agency, free will, nor ancient evolved survival behaviour. It's programming. Couldn't be further away from human behaviour if it tried.

Re: It is a sad thing

Nope, capitalism gives agency to human decency. Without capital, we simply survive. And the devil take the hindmost.

Re: I would have thought that

"If the deceased had a contract whereby he was owed something do you think that the debt would be cancelled? "

Yes. Immediately. The detail of the contract is what's in question here. If the contract was drawn up between two individuals then the debt would be null and void upon one party becoming deceased. Think about it - how would the creditor be paid? Exhumed and bills stuffed in his pockets before being re-interred?

If the contract was between two corporations (artificial persons) then there is the question of 'collective' corporate transfer of burden and responsibility.

Individuals are not corporations, despite what the courts frequently and fervently wish were the case - which is why they invent strawmen in the dock - we are sovereign individuals, humans and alive and real. Once dead we cannot honour a contract. Slightly o/t but the whole farrago of dim plods, bent courts and their 'justice' in the UK boils my piss.
