That third line does not make sense. Misusing "infer" when you should use "imply" is a very common mistake. I am no grammar nazi and I would not ordinarily consider it sufficiently important to flag up. BUT... this is Q and, as we know, literal meanings of words are important.

This is literally true though is it not?

For years we sentenced a variety of criminals to "transportation" which meant dumping unwanted individuals overseas out of our face. Most frequently the destination was Australia but many did go to other places. Kind of makes a mockery of modern immigration cops asking if you have a criminal record when their entire ancestry was from criminals.

To be fair the definition of god is an entity outside of our comprehension. If it were inside our comprehension then it would not be god.

So I never understood the traditional insistence that god is masculine. Some religions say that we are all god, in which case it would make sense for god to be a specific gender matching your own depending if you are male or female.

If they had biolabs in those days I would guess where it came from. They just got an extra lucky bonus I suppose.

I've never heard the word "Tesla" officially pronounced. I assumed that it was indeed spoken as "Tezla." How do you pronounce it? The only alternative I can imagine is to pronounce as if it had a double "s" for example like the word "process."

I don't like UK Westminster government they are total scum. Like the African guy in the picture. Note he is NOT Indian as claimed.

I also don't like disgusting Brussels government they are awful (Ursula 🤢)

But I lost out massively thru Brexit by losing my EU citizenship. For Americans, imagine it's like losing your USA citizenship. If you live in NY you no longer have the right to move to AZ, unless they wish to allow you via their visa process.

In compensation, I was assured that Brexit would bring me great benefits. It's only been three years now but I haven't heard what they are, I am sure I will real soon though.

The whole entire thing is a shitfire.

Absolutely all of it sounds repulsive and I would pay to not have to eat it. WTF is "black glutinous rice"?

Most of the year actually but I do recall a sunny day in July once, 1982 I think it was.

"Men and women in Blue"

Why do people always say this? I've always found that police worldwide wear black, not blue.

I am sure they hate it but damn I would love for it to snow here in London. It's not unknown but most winters no snow just grey and depressing.

They like to say they are cashless but if your card "doesn't work" or you "left it at home" then they are pretty quick to take your cash alright.

Not sure what you mean about the male and female pedestrian crossing lights. We have several types of crossing and the most common one (Pelican) has a stick figure of indistinct gender which lights up green or red. We do have other less common types (Toucan, Puffin, et al) which maybe they do have male and female I am not sure. The stupid names are because the original PEdestrian LIght CONtrolled crossing was shortened to "Pelicon" then some genius decided to assign bird names for later ones.

I have seen male and female crossing signs in the USA though - a yellow sign with black legend showing a boy and a girl, each carrying a small square. I assumed it was a "school students crossing" or some such.

I'm in the south east but didn't hear the Mega Thunderbolt. I was in Turkey (or Türkiye as they now insist people call it, thanks to Americans using the word turkey colloquially as a negative epithet) earlier this year during one of their EU wargames and we saw quite a few F-16s and other miltary stuff. Sitting on the beach one day waiting for rain to stop and suddenly the most amazing bang and we almost crapped ourselves, assuming some kind of missile. But no, just thunder, and the locals thought nothing of it. Showed me though that thunder certainly does come in different grades.

But the graphic attached to the lectern in front of him does say "Trump" and "2024"

The 2024 is not easy to see because it is overlaid by a chyron but you immediately after Trump says he will be a candidate the camera zooms out a bit and the 2024 is visible.

In fact we have no idea what "the original" was. The bible is a collection of many scripts written at many different times over thousands of years by many different people. Also they were written in many different languages - none of which were English. Some of the texts are real, some are fake news of the time.

Memes like this one try to cover up this uncertainty by insisting on using "thou, thy" obsolete English which is only a few hundred years old at best.

That's not just normies. It's this site as well. Packed with angry people only just managing to keep a lid on it. Then when you express an opinion slightly unaligned with theirs, POW they unload on you with a made-up reason just like your example. Apologies for the rant but it happened to me about five minutes ago.

I don't believe anyone in UK was ever subject to a "no jab no job" edict. They came pretty close with putting the frighteners on the NHS and care home people but even there they bottled it at last minute.

If you want to compare the US to "Europe" (which I am not in) then instead of random insults why not try getting a passport and going to other countries to see how things are done. "Differently" is what you will find. Nobody else copies your "at-will" or whatever you like to call it. You can fire people, but you better have a reason which will stand up in court.

"A new owner called Elon who doesn't like your face" will not cut it in the London twitter firings. Of course HR probably knew that and the firees will have been paid off not to sue.

American multinationals just fail to understand global employment law. Some bubblegum-and-kick-ass HNIC bangs the table and says fire 14% of everybody and his minions shout yessir right away sir.

Probably works fine in US but other countries have laws. In UK you can't just turn off people's computers and tell them they're gone, unless you want to get sued.

Link to actual story

Of course cannot rule out sabotage but there is no evidence either. The first outage was a few minor islands off the Scotland coast, and was fixed the next day. The other cable break ON LAND in France as far as I can tell from the confused Breitbart writings and sounds equally trivial.

Fishing boats routinely cut these cables all the time by accident or negligence.

Having said that I guess there is a point of view that if a foreign power wanted to remind the world that they could cut anything anytime, then doing it undetected right on their enemy's doorstep would score extra points.

How do you feel about English as we speak it in England? Whenever I watch an American film the super evil villain always seems to be English.

We don't vote for people we vote for the red party or the blue party. The colours are opposite to those in USA. The leader of the party gets to be HNIC. They can change the party leader as often as they want, once elected.

I have only ever been to Finland (Helsinki) for work and not seen the country much so maybe I am being unfair but it seems like a depressing grey waste of space with nothing going for it.
