Here in UK, after Brexit, if I buy a silver coin or bar then it comes with 20% tax. Makes it kinda pointless unless you think silver is really going to the moon.

Basketball isn't really a thing in Europe and I have no idea who she is. Can frens fill in some context? Is there some kind of scam going on to keep her off the team? I've heard of Griner of course because Russia.

Passports have printed chevron symbols like this >>>>>>>>> and that area has to be scannned first to get the password to read the chip. So no possibily of anyone sneaking up next to you and grabbing your chip data so no need for RF shielding.

There is an EU standard for passport chips based on X.509 and I suspect it is a world standard. The front cover of the passport has a symbol to ahow compatibility. You can get Android apps to read the chip and see the certificate data.

Microwave does indeed destroy the chip but not a great benefit because they can still visually read the printed data. Also you cannot use the automatic entry gates and instead have to line up for a real border force person.

Africa is not a shithole. Some parts of some African countries are shitholes. But you could say that about anywhere.

I'd say about five years ago. I used to go to Munich quite frequently for work but it was always airport-office-hotel-airport. Once I got outside the "business bubble" and went around ordinary Munich that's when I realised I was not welcome.

As I say, Helsinki is even worse.

Germany wants to ban encryption but are getting resistance.

The decriminalising of child porn is so that people will rightly make a fuss and object. Then they can say "well it's too difficult to police unless we can ban encryption".

I don't think it's OK to shoot people based on "they looked real suspicious foreigners and hanging around taking pictures".

I know things are different in the US but to the rest of the world trust me this just looks like excessive force and paranoia.

Is this story actually real? People get weird sometimes where child abuse is involved.

Firstly the screenshot contains a misspelling of "valiant" and I would have thought an authentic police organisation would not have made such a mistake in its official announcements.

Secondly the link does not work I get

Here in UK there were jab mandates for NHS (health service) workers who had contact with patients, and elderly care workers. Even those were heavily fought over and I don't think anyone was ever fired for refusal.

I don't work in those areas but I still had to face my company demanding that I either show digital evidence on my phone of prior covid injection, or take an on-the-spot test, before I could enter my office.

I had no jab and throughout the whole covid event never took a test even once, so I was not going to obey that. UK law requires that HR implement a conflict resolution procedure which HR absolutely love doing because it makes them feel important. Guess what they flat-out refused to do it when I objected to their restrictions. Soon afterwards the whole thing was quietly dropped, except that they scanned me with a thermal camera on entry and there was really nothing I could do about that.

tl;dr they already knew full well that their covid mandates were not enforceable by law.

Assume this is the controversy from 2017 https://www.marketingweek.com/munroe-bergdorf-loreal-controversy/

Bergdorf became L’Oréal’s first transgender model in 2017, but was dropped just two days later after publishing a post about racism and “the racial violence of white people” on Facebook. The beauty giant said the views expressed were “at odds” with its values.

It was later rehired to be on the L'Oreal "diversity committee"

Why do they write it as s*x instead of sex? Would you get kicked off twitter for saying sex? Surely not.

I've done this too many times. Someone makes a big claim that - if true - would change everything and save your life.

So you watch the video or read their pdf. Intense-sounding stuff about spiritual vibrations and crystal harmonies whatever. just do it bro.

At the end of the video you still have no idea how to use this fantastic new power you thought you were going to get. Not only that but you feel even worse because you think it's your fault for failing to understand the vibrations thing properly.

I can't ever remember how old my adult kids are. If I need to know I have to calculate from their date of birth. When they're age 6 you know they are 6 but doesn't work like that as they grow up.

So she claims to be age 23 and they set up a meet.

They meet in a public place coffee shop and she tells him hey guess what I am age 15. Then five seconds later the youtubers arrive and get aggressive.

What was the guy supposed to do exactly?

The youtubers fucked up badly they should have waited until (or if) he did something illegal like ask her to go somewhere for sex.

Here in UK denying entrance for no mask was illegal. If you said you were exempt from masks then that was all that was necessary and they had to let you in. An Aldi supermarket who refused entry was successfully sued and paid out 10k in compensation.

Some were forced; there's videos of people in care homes being held down and vaxed. I think also some instances where parents wanted vax but child didn't - kids were forcibly jabbed as well.

For gold only - no VAT or CGT.

Silver coins can dodge the VAT by not taking delivery; you pay to keep them in a vault. Not sure about platinum.

I verified some of the claims at http://www.come-and-hear.com

I did find the quotes in there, kinda, but it is all such a rambling unclear contradictory mess I can't be sure if I am reading the same actual message as they intended to communicate. It contains paragraphs saying things like sex with 3-year olds is acceptable and I doubt even the small-hatters could get away with saying that was legit theology today.

Also note that this thing calls itself the "Babylonian Talmud" which would place its origins somewhere round present-day Baghdad and so not necessarily the same thing as whatever they do in Israel in modern times.
