    Is this a thing at Glastonbury? Organ and food donation? Talk about weaponizing popular culture, but I suppose it always was to one degree or another. I went to Knebworth a couple of times in the 70s and I'm buggered if I can remember any type of political speech from the acts on stage. They would have been bottled if they had.

    Dunno there was a lot of anti war rhetoric at festivals late 60's into the 70's. but not the politically woke BS that festival goers are brainwashed with now. Last festival I attended (i used to be a lighting tech so worked on lots) would of been V fest in 06 or 07 and i don't remember any of this BS back then.

    This is disturbing ..

     

    "East London nightclub deaths: At least 22 people found dead in South African 'tavern' | World News | Sky News" https://news.sky.com/story/at-least-17-people-found-dead-in-south-african-nightclub-12640551

     

    ...The place was packed. Bodies everywhere, but no obvious signs of injury. There's speculation of poison or gas of some kind. 

     

    What are the chances we have a shooting at a gay bar in Oslo called the London pub  then 22 dead in a nightclub in east London SA within a day of each other.

    I'm surprised at the ruling really, since those in positions of authority are so keen to depopulate. Here come the get rich quick, back street abortionists.

    What about the people now who are complaining that they were allowed to have operations to change them from men to women without knowing that they would be left with strange, gaping hunks of flesh missing where they thought they'd have a vagina, and little, twitching stumps of penis left . They say it's ruined their lives - their complaint is that nobody talked them out of it.

    Correct me if i'm wrong but from memory about the invention of what is known today as 'Tanks' came about by using the word as code to confuse the enemy, in this case Germany during the ww1, who would have thought it to be containers for water, fuel, munitions.....etc.

    No quite correct it was indeed used as code in WW1. but in the contest of "think tank" its referring to tank as in storage vessel

    "Think Tanks" are supposed to be "policy institutes which research and publish and lecture and work for the social good".

     

    What is the word TANK doing in the name though?

     

    What does a policy institute have to do with a large, heavy, armoured, difficult to stop and extremely lethal military land vehicle which crushes everything in its path ?

    Think tank as in water tank Ie a container for ideas.

    think your overthinking this one

    Sorry to drag-up an old post in the News section, but there's one story that's gone very quiet lately, and that's the fitting of speed limiters/governors on all new cars sold in the EU from July/August 2022. As far as I know, this is still going ahead - and this includes the UK, despite Brexit.

     

    Here's a link to a Guardian story via archive.org (as the stinky Guardian have removed the article from their website):

    https://web.archive.org/web/20190327025720/https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/mar/27/all-new-uk-cars-to-have-speed-limiters-by-2022-under-eu-plans

     

    Infowars picked up on the story back in May, but there's been very little coverage in the corporate media:

    https://www.infowars.com/posts/speed-limiters-will-be-equipped-in-all-new-eu-cars-beginning-next-month/

     

    Finally, this from Autotrader in March 2022:

    https://www.autotrader.co.uk/content/news/mandatory-speed-limiters-on-uk-cars-from-2022  

     

    Maybe the Mercedes recall has something to do with this - just a thought.

     

     

     

    edit: my mistake, the Guardian article is still live (no need to access it via archive.org):

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/mar/27/all-new-uk-cars-to-have-speed-limiters-by-2022-under-eu-plans

     

     

    Its not that uncommon for a manufacturer to recall cars made years before if its a safety critical issue. my old Nissan X-Trail was recalled back in 2020 due to an airbag fault and that car was made in 2002.

    I hope this gives some perspective to the larger picture, what Kennedy was assassinated for is being taken down in modern day. FED, military industrial complex, FBI, CIA and corrupt people who support such criminality anywhere in positions of power. This is not about politics, this is about criminals and criminals being held to account regardless of their net worth.

    Im not really much of a Q aficionado, but i do keep an eye on this thread. just struck me that last post Dec 14th 2017 

    the !st and last sentences are both from the early 80's film War Games.

    question to the Q people on here is this normal for Q posts to reference old films and to start and finish with quites from the same film?

    I love my old Sinclair Spectrum computer!  I still have one and with the wonders of modern technology i can load games up on it via an SD card, saves relying on those old tapes!

    Yea you've gotta love the spekky it was a marvel of British engineering. back when the uk could actually make things. Sir clive was ahead of the game in many ways.

    It is very strange. TV, radio, cameras photo, oscilloscope and other special devices 70-80 is very good quality and assembling, and easy to repair.

    They do tend to be easily repaired but the consumer level stuff especially late 70's 80's does have poor build quality, I have a Vaga Ruby radio from the late 60's and the build quality on that is excellent, however ive got later Vaga radios from the 70's and they are falling apart. The scientific and test equipment on the other hand is fantastic with very high build quality, I have a PA amp built in the 70's All valve technology with four 6L6 output valves and the build quality on that is amazing.

    Some of the greatest electrical engineers I have ever worked near were Russian. Russia has a history of some of the greatest minds in physics, electrical engineering and more and as such are a technological superpower whether people wish to accept that or not is irrelevant to me.

    Oh dont get me wrong I greatly admire Russian engineering and  Russian engineers. I have quite a collection of Russian built items manly computers and radios. Russian transistor radios from the 70's and 80's are some of the best around from an electrical point of view with additional amplification stages making them very sensitive and selective. there actual build quality however is pretty terrible with poor quality injection molded cases and awful PCBs with traces that lift as soon as they see a soldering iron. there home computers are the same, most are based off the British ZX spectrum from 1982 The Russians reverse engineered (or had a spy at ferranti) the custom ULA chip and implemented it using standard TTL logic ic's, Very clever of them and they do work however like the radios the build quality was awful.
