Almost like "nostr" which is the coolest un-censorable "social media" ever, and will ultimately crush facebook and their sort.
She was under so much pressure from big pharma and its usual allies to approve it for sale in the US but she never did. What a true hero.
I am English and I claim that the USAians culturally appropriated my language. I demand reparations sent to my Credit Suisse account. No wait maybe somewhere else...
The security problems posed by smartphones are obvious and it's so tempting to just ditch it for a dumb phone (or no phone) as you say. Difficulty is that everyone has some must-have application on which they depend. For me it's Google Maps I absolutely need it to get around. If you're in a foreign city and you can't speak the language then Maps will tell you exactly where to find the correct bus or train and show you the route.
Emmanuel Macron while asking for sacrifices from the French people suddenly realizes he is wearing a €80.000 watch
In English English we don't have sidewalks. The thing the pedestrians walk on is called the pavement. I remember freaking out driving in the US and there was some sign about you have to drive on the pavement at all times.
I know muslims who like a beer. I don't know why people do what they do.
If you want to know the official rules about Lent then check out the official papal decree which is
BOOK IV. FUNCTION OF THE CHURCH
PART III : SACRED PLACES AND TIMES
TITLE II. SACRED TIMES (Cann. 1244 - 1253)
CHAPTER I. Feast Days
CHAPTER II. Days of Penance
Religious people have a thing for starving themselves. Where I live it is apparently "Lent" which is similar to ramadan about not eating. Crazy in my opinion.
I sort of get the sentiment. Nobody likes flying anyway. But how do you avoid it unless making yourself a prisoner? OK for some journeys you can drive or get the train as an alternative, but how else do you get to Tokyo? (Unless you're Japanese and you live there obviously.)
Good for you but if you were to visit Westminster you would soon change your mind. Not about your religion I mean but about the words that you use in it. Fun fact - George Soros' right-hand-man is a Lord.
The bible says do unto others as you would have them do to you. Let that sink in.
Justifying your own desires by pretending that a god intended it is a false argument. It is precisely what the jihadis say when they blow up people. Oh yeah god says it's OK.
Assuming you are American you should already know why kings are basically despots and tyrants. The Americans were the first to revolt against the tyranny and selfish policies of imperial Britain under the rule of King George III. This roused hopes and aspirations among all nations seeking liberty and freedom. Monarchal rule under a king is the antithesis of democracy.
The same argument applies to "lords" by the way.
I hope this doesn't come across as disrespectful but I totally fail to understand this. Surely Americans having managed to defeat the British King understand the major problem with them? Can't you find some other metaphor to express your love? KINGS ARE NOT GOOD PEOPLE.
They have been testing this in my area of UK for a few years now. My (Android) phone goes crazy with a horribly discordant noise at max volume.
So far all I have seen is "This is a test" with some explanatory text. Android then speaks (shouts) out the text first in English, which I speak, then Welsh, which I don't.
I am surprised it has taken them this long for it to go into nationwide testing. It is a standard feature of the GSM international phone system, not rocket science. The US has I believe had this in full operation for a long time now.
tl;dr I don't think this announcement has any significance
RT has it also. RT might be illegal to view in your country; it is in mine.
Yesterday the Senator for Oklahoma asked Janet Yellen if she would waive the 250k dollar limit for depositors in any future crash of OK banks. After all, she just did it in CA.
Yellen seemed to find that hard to answer.
Makes no sense. "Box cutters" had been smuggled into the first-class seat pockets of the plane next door on the tarmac, which had a tail number 1 digit off. So the cops said the corrupt ground crew helping the terrorists had smuggled the box cutters onto the wrong plane.
"Box cutter" is an American term and I have never been totally sure what it is. I believe they are what we in the UK call "Stanley knives" after Stanley the first tools manufacturer to put them on sale. A knife with a very small 1-inch blade designed to open cardboard boxes but the blade is not long enough to damage the contents.
I have never travelled with any kind of knife but I am pretty sure that even today you could go through security with a 1-inch blade. So why did bad ground crew have to smuggle them aboard in advance? How come the alleged terrorists could not just take them on in their carry-on baggage?
The author has let his imagination run away with him. What a mish-mash of half-understood folk history. Next door to meaningless in my opinion.
I find it hilarious that people who believe and are creeped out by this sort of stuff are the very first to tell you to your face that "astrology is rubbish and scientifically impossible."
I refused to wear a mask and nearly everywhere that was accepted, certainly by stores and such. The few times I couldn't avoid it (airports etc.) then I wore a camo bandanna mask made of what the British Army calls "scrim" a kind of loose mesh scarf. The holes are visibly quite large but nobody cared so long as I was conforming by wearing a mask. Also it looked somewhat more badass than the blue chinese disposables.
I accept your request.
The numerical value of pi is infinite so it's difficult to estimate how long it will take. I am guessing an infinite amount of time. I'll have it done by the time the universe implodes into one single black hole. I am aged over 23 so UK minimum wage is £10.42 per hour therefore give me 17.45 trillion up front and I'll make a start as soon as I finish this beer. The rest later when I finish. You're welcome.
How I wish I could enumerate pi easily, since all these bullshit mnemonics prevent recalling any of pi's sequence more simply
The number of letters in each word represent each digit in pi
And so on
It's about your personal ability to project your will onto others. This happens all throughout your life and is not just about controlling children. If physical violence is your first stop in any confrontation then you are in for a lot of trouble in life and I predict fights in bars for your future.
When I was a teen I was with a girl whose dad used to spank her, as in over the knee for a spanking session. She had somehow come to enjoy this and demanded I do it to her and she really got off on it.
Not sure what all that was about but I found it a little bit over the edge of creepy.
Schoolteachers used to hand out beatings when I was a kid, although they are not allowed ot do it any more. Problem was they hit children in the most convenient place which for a typical-sized adult is head-height for a child. Young children have thin skulls and there were a few "accidents" which forced them to stop.
If you like spankings then maybe you would like Indonesia. The largest Muslim population in the world and they regularly have public whippings.
How is this loading anything onto the Federal Reserve? As I understand it in the USA your deposits are insured up to 250k Dollars. What they have done for SVB is to waive that limit - if you had 251k Dollars or more (a fk-lot more) you will still get your entire money back.
This enables them to say truthfully but misleadingly that taxpayers money is not being used for bail-out.
Of course SVB is full of Very Important People so they are getting first noses into the bail-out trough. By the time Mom & Pop Bank goes, er, pop, then there will sadly be insufficient remaining in the fund even for your less-than-250k, so sorry.
Surprising how few people know that the purest form of a phone number has to begin with "+"
When the global telecoms system began to form it was ruled by the USA who was the most important and yugest so they allocated themselves the country code "1" - this is why US phone numbers start with 1, as in 1-800-234-1234.
If you travel overseas a lot then you don't have to be stuck in Japan wondering what is their prefix for "international call" , you just store your numbers in the form +1-800-234-1234 and it automatically knows that number is in USA. Call same number unchanged from anywhere in the world.
All other countries start with some other allocated number; such as UK is 44, so all my contact numbers are stored as +44-2345-67890
