  1. I can't clearly connect the dots yet but is it just a coincidence that the Royals' cancer announcements came not long after the MSM has stopped talking about Putin having cancer? Unless I've missed something and the Putin cancer reports are still appearing.
  2. It's a no for me. But hypothetically, if I were to buy there's also the question of when. It looks pricey at the moment so if I had some spare cash (ha ha) I'd wait for it to drop. https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/quote/BTC-GBP (click on the 'max' timescale) It looks very volatile and afaik there's no income with this type of asset (such as dividends you get with shares) so it's all down to capital gain. It's a case of timing the market: when has it peaked and troughed? I don't really fancy my chances of figuring that out
  3. Lol yes, that's how adverts for the lotteries work. The TV advert is itself a vision board and always shows someone winning or saying something like "it could be you" to install the belief or image of ME willing the lottery and what I want to do with the money. They never show all the losers! Of course it's all reverse logic, it's the lottery company making money not the 99.9% of punters. If you want to make money out of the lottery you'd be better off buying shares in the lottery company but even that's not guaranteed.
  4. "Crypto" means someone that's working under cover like a spy, so a good place to find government cryptos is in the secret intelligence agencies and special branches. It doesn't stretch my imagination too much to suggest that religions have intelligence agencies as well as governments.
  5. "This has been going on for 75 years." I was looking up the UN partition plan to check the borders they voted for, which neither the Israelis or Palestinians seem to agree with. As well as the maps it also says "the plan was not implemented." The UN also terminated the British mandate at the same time and effectively walked away from the conflict; on the very next day war broke out when some Arab countries invaded. The UN recognised Israel by admitting them into full UN membership in 1949 but have only been given observer status, with the USA vetoing full membership. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Nations_Partition_Plan_for_Palestine So yeah it's been going on for 75 years at least, or we could say longer than that if you include the terrorist fighting during the British Mandate.
  6. How do they break their hand, you mean if they hit the wall instead? I'm still wondering whether to take up Taekwondo for self-defence as well as general fitness but not sure if it's the best one to learn.
  7. Me - a proper brew like Yorkshire tea of course
  8. @Mr H That's a fair point and I certainly wouldn't trust just any English people enough to let them into my home merely because we're from the same culture. I can say I do love my people but it's a broad use of the term because I can't be friends with them all. There's already lot of diversity within my native country and as a northerner it feels very different from the culture in Essex boys example. I am envious of other peoples when I see them closing ranks and defending each other against external attacks and insults, whereas there's something in the English psyche at the moment where we don't stand together but are happy to openly criticise, beat ourselves up and wash our dirty laundry in public. As it stands, I don't think our culture can survive very long in this state and I think a certain amount of clubbing together and in-group preference is necessary to just keep going in a competitive and often hostile world. For sure patriotism does idealise and romanticise the nation, and none is perfect, but I do believe that humans need a community around us to survive and prosper, and patriotism is the idea of community expanded onto a national scale. At the very least we need some way to defend ourselves against the relentless divide and rule strategy that's used against us.
  9. I wish I had your confidence that we will get unbiased evidence to make an objective view, but I suspect that both sides will cherry-pick what they tell us. In any case, Hamas (or most other terrorist groups) wouldn't last very long in a conventional pitched open battlefield against a modern army. The only way they survive is to use guerrilla tactics, hide among civilians, don't wear uniforms etc. I don't like what they're doing any more than you, but if you look at it from their point of view, how else can they oppose Israel's domination of their country without getting walked all over? Like in the West Bank where the Palestinian Authority have taken a more peaceful path, their land is being occupied by Israeli settlements, so it's not a very good role model is it? What would you suggest the Gazans do to improve their desperate situation? I wish I had some hope to offer them as an alternative to this horror.
  10. You're leaving us Mac? I don't know if you'll ever read this but I'll be sorry to see you go, and thanks for the good work you've done here. I expect you're right about the digital IDs but ironically without sites like this I'd not be so well warned about them. Yes the net is closing in around us on all sides, whatever freedom of speech we had is already gone and I often get depressed about the state of our civilisation. I hold a faint hope that the cult is overplaying its hand and over-reaching itself, like Napoleon or Hitler, and the natural order will get to reassert itself, but I fear even this hope will be laced with much suffering and loss. By way of a sign, a random quote popped into my head yesterday: 'things fall apart, the centre cannot hold'. I didn't know where it came from (it sounded a bit like a Chinese proverb to me) but it's actually a line from Yeats' poem The Second Coming. The first verse is: "The Second Coming Turning and turning in the widening gyre The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity." Our loss will be the soil's gain.
  11. I don't have proof of that, but it seems that a lot of the Royals are coy about wearing their wedding rings in public. Neither Kate nor William do so regularly, Charles wears his on his little finger next to a signet ring, Phillip and Andrew don't wear them.
  12. Thanks cia. And can I hazard a guess that those academics aren't using their critical theory to apply the same logic to the Pakistani religious-political scene? If so (and it's certainly the case over here in western Europe), it's worth looking into why Muslims are portrayed as the darlings of the left. One theory I have is because Islam is a universalist religion, like Catholicism, which is more amenable to racial and ethnic mixing than folkish religions like Hinduism, and therefore more amenable to a globalist world order.

    A HUMOUR THREAD

    Perhaps Jesus was an Englishman too: He told us to say sorry all the time (for our sins) He ruled the waves (and calmed the storm) He healed the sick for free at the point of delivery (like the NHS).
  14. We don't have a nation state. The nation is the people who are born in the country, the natives or indigenous people and the state is the rulers over the people. Now when you have a state which is not loyal to the native population but is content to see them replaced, that is not a nation state. Patriotism derives from patriṓtās, your fellow countrymen. It's a masculine word because that's the history of it, there may be a better word to include females as well as males, but in this language I have become more patriotic as I've grown older. I can now see how the ordinary people have been made to take the blame for the crimes of the ptb and hate themselves, it's the agenda. So yeah, I'm patriotic towards my people, my tribe but that's not the patriotism of the flag-waving variety as we are an occupied people.
  15. You can't put crypto directly in your ISA, but you can indirectly using ETFs (exchange traded funds). You can go to one of the big fund managers and look for one which does an ETF for bitcoin or other crypto. https://upthegains.co.uk/blog/how-to-add-bitcoin-to-your-isa I don't do it myself though, so I can't advise for or against, but just flagging that it's possible nowadays. I totally agree about the CGT allowance collapse. Under a conservative govt too, tut tut ... These political parties get more alike all the time.
  16. Why sell it to China rather than make it ourselves and sell the finished product to them? They're still giving up on our manufacturing industry.
  17. I get two types of tinnitus. One is a high pitched noise which goes on and off but seems to be a genuine type. Thanks for the tip about gingko, I'll give it a try. The other type is a low pitched rumbling sound which is the worldwide hum, I think that sort is caused by something external.
  18. I didn't know this before but after a little bit of digging ... In the early 20th Century Makanda used the slogan "Star of Egypt". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Makanda,_Illinois The Star of Egypt is Sirius (the dog star), which is associated with the Goddess Sopdet. And there's theories that the Egyptian, Sumerian, and Dogon civilizations were founded by aliens from the Sirius star system. https://www.amazon.com/Sirius-Mystery-Scientific-Evidence-Contact/dp/089281750X
  19. It fits in with Putin's rhetoric about his invasion being for the denazification of Ukraine.
  20. This is for joint health rather than bones specifically. But I've been using extra virgin olive oil massaged onto a painful knee, a couple of times a day, which has been helping although it's not a quick fix I've been using it for about 6 months. I originally went to the GP who offered no help other than to keep an eye on it and go back if it got worse. But it's nearly pain free now, and I'm able to sit cross-legged again to meditate. Good quality olive oil contains anti-oxidants and polyphenols (oleocanthal) which are anti-inflammatory. No doubt other oils would be good as well, but I've not looked into it much. Regarding cancer, I don't know much about it apart from having a general anti-cancer lifestyle such as detoxing your body as much as possible, good diet & exercise routine, low stress etc. Not easy to avoid carcinogens in today's world unfortunately!
  21. Hi, I haven't started reading The Dream yet so you're ahead of me in that respect. However, spiritual practice and finding truth are important to me. You say you want to get out of here but don't want to be reborn in a higher realm either. So do you know where you want to get to? What other places exist which aren't illusory? I mean if you haven't had a personal experience of the destination, you're going to rely on someone else's description of it and are therefore vulnerable to mind-controlling religions and cults. It's a truism, but if this world is a dream-world then we're dreaming it all, including its religions and spiritual practices. There's two ways out of a dream. Either it ends and you wake up into the 'real' world (end of the story); or you can realise you are dreaming while its happening and make the most of it while it lasts (lucid dreaming). You can't escape from a dream like escaping from prison because if you try travelling somewhere else it's still within the dream. So ask yourself where is the dream located? What is it made of? Imo dreams and illusions don't exist 'out there' in the environment, they exist within our minds. So trying to escape to another place, taking our unawakened mind with us, is to remain within the illusion. If we wait till we die, there's still no guarantee that we're experiencing truth, rather than a new phase of the dream appearing as a 'higher realm'. Just a thought - rather than trying to escape from this world and taking your attention off it, how about doing the opposite, ie confront it with our full attention? Observe it all as clearly as possible, especially self-observation of our minds to get to the root of what's real and what's illusion. Who is it that's having this dream?
  22. It's really an advert dressed up to look like an article. I have a mental post-it note reminding me DON'T BELIEVE ADVERTS. It does seem a little out of place here, but maybe David doesn't do all the admin of his site himself and this one slipped through the net. https://davidicke.com/2021/05/06/stand-up-to-ringing-how-to-manage-tinnitus-efficiently/ There is another 'sponsored post' about tinnitus and recommending CBD. Oddly that one doesn't say who it's for, why would someone pay for an advert but not say who they are or give a link etc, to buy their product rather than someone else's. https://davidicke.com/2020/11/12/can-cbd-be-used-to-treat-tinnitus/
  23. I hope so too. In which case I'll see what's dropped out of the headlines to make way for the eclipse. What news is being buried.
  24. Cheers for sharing that. I can't see how it would work without having smart meters though.
  25. I'm not saying the IMF & World Bank isn't a factor, but also Russia is providing the Wagner Group mercenaries to prop up African regimes with the "regime survival package" in exchange for mineral resources. "Putin sells African leaders ‘regime survival packages’ to win influence, think tank says Report claims Russia is using rebranded Wagner corps to build a network of friendly states and win access to gold and minerals" https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2024/02/20/putin-wagner-mercenaries-regime-survival-package-africa/
