  1. This is brilliant, and laughter is still one of the best medicines. That and sarcasm, or piss taking
  2. Yes, that's right thanks Chris P. I just had that problem too, so I searched tower instead, because I knew there were a lot of 5G threads. I don't know why it doesn't find the 5 or the 5G.
  3. A part quote of your post They've got such a cheek Very interesting, thanks AFS Or I could just say; silence citizen!
  4. It's interesting joining the dots and questioning what else it interferes with, and so on ... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-66072552 5G deadline and bad weather threaten to disrupt US holiday weekend A few quotes from the article ... " A messy effort to equip planes with updated technology is threatening to upend possibly the busiest weekend for post-pandemic air travel in the US. Airlines have been racing to retrofit their fleets with new gear before Saturday, when US wireless carriers will begin to boost their 5G signals. " " The surge of passengers comes as hundreds of planes will fail to meet the deadline for government-mandated updates to their landing systems. " " Starting on Saturday, AT&T, Verizon and other wireless network operators will be free to increase the power of their 5G signals, a change that may lead to better wi-fi performance in and around airports. But airline industry officials have warned the changes could interfere with the radio frequency filters planes use to help pilots determine altitude. Known as radio altimeters or radar altimeters, the equipment is particularly important for landing safely in inclement or low-visibility conditions. "
  5. Thank you both for the links and conversation on this. Also i don't catch the Corbett report enough, so it's always good to get a reminder of yourselves and the other people who are analysing all of these steps.
  6. I told an Algerian that a pack of cigarettes in Cyprus are about 4€, and he said that's still expensive in comparison to Algeria, where they're about half that? I still find it interesting to compare the narrative on vapes, and cigarettes over the years. Having noticed Doctors and the media recommending vapes, I can understand more now how Doctors / adverts used to push / encourage smoking. It's sort of off topic perhaps, but the psychology / training of it all does relate to Covid / Vax / Lockdown awareness, etc.
  7. Sure it's the way you tell 'em, Mr Crabtree. I like how you always mix humour and serious. I find a way to laugh at some of this tragedy / theatre. I love that you said slightly. Sounds like it could be a good / funny song lyric to me. I'm glad you mentioned the (gold) trousers as I found it 'almost human', that they kept slipping and he kept adjusting and pulling them up. There's no accounting for it? Anyway, back to business ...!
  8. GB News on the hour - ... "which they hope will put an end to speculation that has been so damaging to Nicola's family."
  9. I was reading Glastonbury Festival 'news', and saw this ... "During an interview with The Sun, the presenter presented a collection of "blisters and calluses" as he admitted: "I’ve been vaping, a lot." "I didn't realise until suddenly it hurt, but I've been sitting looking up at the sky or out of the window, just staring into space.
  10. Is that why they closed the coal mines?! Boom boom - sorry, silly humour
  11. On the news this morning I heard that the inquiry is hearing about the effects on children. When I did a little search I saw that someone at Save the Children said that no one under 18 had been asked how the lockdown had effected them.
  12. The media is full of ... "Elton has performed over 333 gigs on his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour." But I also read ... "before closing the European run in Stockholm on 8 July with his 333rd show of the tour." Sorry, couldn't resist. I'll try to add it to a 'numbers' / 'dates' thread .
  13. From Yahoo " ... During an interview with the Radio Times this week (Elton John) labelled the media and public reaction to Phillip as "totally homophobic". "If it was a straight guy in a fling with a young woman, it wouldn't even make the papers," Elton told the publication ..." Yeah, funny that, if you're straight you're frowned upon for touching a knee, paying a compliment, or whistling at a girl on a Tuesday? And SarahJane has shared images of naked men at a Pride event, to show what is going on in the USA ... ... and now I see there are rainbows everywhere!
  14. I noticed this last night, which reminded me that the inquiry was live on BBC, haven't heard Whitty's name for a while, I remember how bad it was to see him every day. That alone should have been enough to end lockdown and the daily broadcasts! That also reminds me how Boris and 'all that lot', tried to destroy weekends, evenings, and any other 'traditional family time', with announcements and votes, or anything else they could think of ... because it was of such vast importance. It's infuriating to hear that Boris didn't want to go along with it all, or that he was scared because he was ill. Talk about theatre. That man is part of the people who are part of the problem, and he must feel very proud of his huge achievements and his target to paralyse the country for the best part of 7+ years. These bastards, the worst things that they do to chip away at the spirit don't even get a mention in the main. The news is so trivial.
  15. This video is very good, and I like what George says about the politicians and private companies, and of course the filth in our water. I hadn't heard of DD News, although I have heard a little of George Monbiot.
  16. Last night on GB news or Talk radio, someone mentioned that 400 refugees died on a boat, but the presenter said that this story was unusual, and with the interest in the Titanic. I'm sorry for the loss when I read of what these men achieved, and what their interests were, it's such a waste. (I still hope though, that we don't have another minutes silence for the public, that has become so common lately!
  17. BBC Copyright - Posted at 23:53 22nd June Amazon is moderating bad taste reviews of game controller used in Titan sub Joe Tidy - Cyber-security reporter Amazon has begun moderating the reviews section of the now infamous games controller used to control the missing Titan sub. As news of the missing sub spread earlier this week, bad taste reviews began to appear on the shopping giant’s page for the Logitech F710 controller. Users posted about the controller "not being good at steering a submarine" and "losing signal in the ocean". Before the fate of the crew aboard the sub became clear, the posts received hundreds of approvals from other shoppers and some were made into viral TikTok videos. Amazon has started deleting the reviews as it’s understood they do not comply with community guidelines. The Logitech F710 controller is a popular games console accessory which wirelessly connects to gaming consoles and PCs. The relatively cheap £33 ($42) controller has become a focal point of the technology on the Titan since videos of the company CEO using it were posted online.
  18. Thanks bamboozooka, I was also interested in Cameron's comments. 'Entire week has been prolonged and nightmarish charade' - Director James Cameron BBC Copyright: BBC - 23:21 on June 22nd Director James Cameron, who has completed 33 dives to the Titanic, has told BBC News that he predicted this deadly outcome days earlier. The director of the blockbuster film Titanic said he was on a ship on Sunday when the sub first went missing, and he did not hear about its disappearance until Monday. When he learned that the sub had lost both its navigation and communication at the same time, he said he immediately suspected a disaster had taken place. "I felt in my bones what had happened. For the sub’s electronics to fail and its communication system to fail, and its tracking transponder to fail simultaneously - sub's gone." Cameron told BBC News the past week has "felt like a prolonged and nightmarish charade where people are running around talking about banging noises and talking about oxygen and all this other stuff". He added that once a remotely controlled underwater vehicle was deployed on Thursday, searchers "found it within hours, probably within minutes".
  19. Posted at 4:57 on BBC Website - where there is a long list of updates More on the US Navy's pick-up of 'implosion' sound The US Navy detected “an acoustic anomaly consistent with an implosion” just hours after the Titan began its dive on Sunday. The information was immediately shared with the US Coast Guard, which used it to narrow the scope of its search, an official told CBS News. But it's not clear why this information was not made public earlier. It's believed the implosion sound was picked by the Navy's secretive long-range sonar listening system which has its origins in the Cold War. The Sound Surveillance System was created in the 1950s to listen for Soviet submarines in the remote depths of the Atlantic Ocean. Precise details of current operations are classified, but a US Navy website describes them as performing “detection, localisation and tracking of submarines and the collection of acoustic and hydrographic information.” ........ Part of the reason I share this is because it appears that it was known very early that there had been an implosion and that the media led people to believe that there was a chance, for 3 whole days? Also that the submarine was, perhaps, found in a more obvious location than the vast search area implied in the media? Below its last known location? In common with Anti Facts Sir, I can't help but be interested in the numbers used. For example 40 hours of oxygen left? When it appears that it was known that the sub had already imploded? Perhaps it was just a way to hold the publics attention, where it has been headline news with the economy second. In the BBC thread I see some well used / over used 'media' words ... hope, heartbreak, our thoughts, lessons learned, unprecedented.
  20. What a strange picture of Charles at Royal Ascot, just after his horse won. I've only just seen the Chris Whitty column, I didn't get to see / hear his part in the 'inquiry' today.
  21. THEY have money, but want power. Stop freedom of movement. Stop freedom of speech. Stop freedom of thought.
  22. I think there is a need to stop people exploring, underwater. And also to stop people's joy and enthusiasm and sense of adventure - independent spirit As usual
  23. Al Jazeera There's less than half a days worth of oxygen left ... Q - Are there lessons that can be learned? Q - In hindsight ... would you have gone down on this vessel? "Pressure loves flat edges, round edges it can't get around" "He is the man that would be giving everyone hope" "Because she (the titanic) is so iconic Whether it's treasure hunting or salvage" "If there is a way to do it people will do it" "There was a wedding on the titanic in a submersible" If there is an element of danger ... People like to do something different ( paraphrased ) There will be a big inquiry Dick Martin The following was another expert "What are the emergency health instructions - to do with breathing or ... " ..? Mentions medical treatment etc ... "In 1973, there was a vessel in 1500 feet of water, after 3 days, (they had) dehydration and mild hypothermia".
