  1. That is true, however an unsubstantiated claim made by an anonymous 'whistleblower' is not really evidence either. I used to work for NASA and I can tell you for a fact that the moon is actually made of cheese because I've seen it for myself. Now that I have told you this, I am likely to suffer from an 'unfortunate incident' which sees me having my hand introduced to a toaster, leaving me unable to type out any more of my revelations on an internet message board. Still believe me?
  2. Doesn't make it any more credible though. I don't believe it, and I'm fairly open-minded.
  3. Over the last few days, I've noticed even more that the main headlines on even the BBC News website are just bullshit. No doubt they are just trying to distract as many people as they can from what is really going on (whatever that is).
  4. Just a couple of steps away from what Aldous Huxley described in his "Brave New World" novel. It starts with "designer babies" ("I want a brown baby like the other mums on the estate!" - The Slobs, Harry Enfield's TV Show, in case anyone thinks I am being racist) Then it quickly morphs into the 'state' deciding what type of babies should be born, in order to fulfil their pre-determined roles in a fully-ordered and managed society.
  5. You can believe what you want to believe, doesn't make it factual or correct though.
  6. Where did you get the image from? There may be question marks about the credibility of NASA, but I tend to find that 'anonymous' posts on internet message boards claiming to be 'whistleblowers' making very unsubstantiated claims are even less credible. This kind of fabricated bullshit is what gives the 'real' conspiracy theorists and researchers a bad reputation, and makes us all look bad. But then again, that is probably the intention.
  7. Yes, Sunday and Monday should be relatively mild, then heading into Christmas the temps drop down to around average for the time of year. "I'm dreaming of a Wet Christmas..."
  8. Why? Calls for memorial at scene of frozen lake tragedy to honour Babbs Mill boys From: https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/calls-memorial-scene-frozen-lake-25741017 You'll have to forgive my seeming callousness or lack of sympathy, but these children were idiots, who lost their lives through their own selfish and reckless actions. It is always tragic when someone loses their life, but sometimes the 'blame game' has to come to an end. Where were their parents while their children were 'playing' on the ice? Why did these children not know about the dangers of playing on ice? As I said earlier on, when I was a child I heeded warnings about frozen ponds and pools, that was over forty years ago. By all means, please applaud and congratulate those brave emergency service workers who did what they could to rescue these children, and offer your condolences to those who have lost loved ones. But should we really be getting into memorialising and celebrating people who were basically idiots?
  9. A shift in the weather is coming... the first tell-tale sign for me is the wind - it's been relatively calm the last few days, but while outside just in the garden having a contemplative cigarette, I noticed the breeze pick up as leaves started to swirl around on my patio again...

  10. In my lifetime, December 2010 is probably the coldest winter I can vividly remember. Around mid-December, about a week and half before Christmas, we had a load of snow, and then after that, temperatures barely went above freezing for the next three weeks. Even in Birmingham, we had overnight lows of minus 12 to 17 degrees C. Pavements were difficult to walk on, as the snow refused to thaw and just became compacted as people walked on them. I was living at the time in a flat which had no central heating, and a draughty window in my bedroom - it was UPVC double-glazed but part of the mechanism was bent so the top section didn't close fully, there was a visible gap, which I tried sealing with a bit of cloth stuffed in. There was a gas fire in the living room and in the bedroom. The flat had coin-operated gas and electricity meters, so I had to keep a supply of pound coins handy to keep them topped up. I'd get home from work, and the indoor thermometer I had bought was registering 12 degrees C inside. I bought a convector heater with a 24hr timer, so I could at least programme it to come on just before I got home from work, and before I got up in the morning. It was that cold, one Saturday morning I woke up to find a load of police cordon tape between our house and the next-door neighbours, it turned out that someone had collapsed in the street and died on the pavement. At work, we had huge dangerous icicles hanging from the roof of our building, right over the side entrance - it was a bit nerve-wracking going outside for a smoke! I went to spend Christmas at my parents, and slept in their extension, while it was minus 10 outside, the extension didn't have central heating either, just an oil-filled electric radiator. December 2010, THAT was a fucking cold winter, and this one doesn't compare in the slightest. I was relatively poor at the time, and I survived. Maybe that's why I'm not so bothered by the cold weather now, okay I don't particularly like it admittedly, but compared to past experiences, December 2022 is nothing.
  11. Sorry, but this smacks of bullshit to me.
  12. The below is reproduced from an email newsletter I received today from UKIP: According to https://www.netweather.tv/weather-forecasts/uk/winter/winter-history the last two decades have been unpredictable during winter. 2000/1 Late December 4” snow in Glasgow and 8” in Belfast. January & February 12 to 24” of snow around the country. 2001/2 Virtually no snow at all. 2002/3 No snow in December. Some snow across the country in January and February. -15C with wind-chill in February. 2003/4 Snow in October and late December. Countrywide blizzard in late January. 10” snow in SW England and Wales in mid-March. 2004/5 Midlands snow mid-November. White Christmas in north and west. Well below average snow February & March. 2005/6 Snow in SW England 25th November and in Midlands and northwest on 28th November. Heavy snow on 12th March in the west. Further snow in April. 2006/8 Virtually devoid of snow both winters. 2008/9 Coldest winter since 1995/6. 2009/10 Temperatures 2 to 3C below average. Coldest winter since 1978. 2010/11 Temperature 5C below normal for 100 years. Snow through December and Christmas countrywide. 2011/12 Some snow late October. Snow in north mid-December. Heavy snow across country in March. Localised snowfall in May. 2012/13 Long snowy winter starting in late October. Generally colder than average well into June. 2013/14 Wet with flooding. No snow except in Scottish Highlands. 2014/15 Little snow. Midlands and northern England wet snow on Christmas day. 2015/16 Mild and wet. Brief snowfalls in southeast in November and December. Snow also January through to April. 2016/17 Mild with relatively light snow in January. 2017/18 Cold and snowy December over most of the country. West country has 8-12” of snow in February. 2018/19 Mild and relatively snow free. 2019/20 Another mild winter. Some snowfalls on high ground November through to January in various parts of the country. 2020/21 Cold and snowy all winter. Minimum temperature -23C at Braemar 11 February. Lowest in UK since 1995. 2021/22 A mild winter again. 2022/23 Cold snap at -10C mid-December. Satellite images of northern hemisphere show highest snow cover for decades. Looks like being a cold one. Is this Global Warming or Climate Change? Unfortunately, the UK Meteorological Office doesn’t comprehend the difference between climate and weather. Even though as island nations our weather has high variability, which is why we are always talking about it, there is no trend towards warming and even some really deep snowfalls and low temperature events that haven’t been witnessed for 100 years. This is just typical UK weather. Antony Nailer UK Independence Party - Spokesman for the Environment
  13. I haven't read The Light for a while now - I seem to remember a while back reading some whispers about them not being all they claim to be. While catching up on Vernon Coleman's website the other week, I came across the following in one of his 'Passing Observations' series of articles: From: https://vernoncoleman.org/articles/passing-observations-132
  14. When I started this topic last year, I lamented about how the weather was reported in the local media was a reflection on how people have been 'dumbed down'. It's not just the local media, now even the BBC has a 'current thing' section on its News homepage: Most people now seem unable to work out for themselves what is happening, and now desperately 'need' the media to tell them what to think. Of course, this all ties in nicely with what's been building up over the last few months: energy price rises, the "cost of living crisis", Liz Truss' "reckless" Budget causing interest rates to rise etc. The same media that is relentlessly telling everyone that no-one has any money to spend and can't afford anything, also collaborates with big retailers and brand names to urge them to spend money on 'hacks' and gadgets/devices that will 'save them money'. People are being frightened by the media into being afraid or fearful of things that occur naturally, ie the weather. And people are easily fearful of things they don't understand. The fact that so many people don't understand how weather works has to be very concerning, and goes to show that the 'dumbing-down' techniques employed over the last few decades are proving to be quite successful. When I was a child, some forty-odd years ago now, people were warned about the dangers of trying to walk on frozen pools/lakes/rivers - the ice could crack and you'd fall into freezing cold water and would probably die. Yet here we are in December 2022, and the top story on the BBC News site is the tragedy that three young boys have died after walking on an icy lake. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-63944005 Seems not much has changed since I was their age...
  15. Yes I have thank you. Have you ever wondered why we see the world like this? It's because of how our eyes function. Most camera lenses are designed to work the same way as our eyes, which is why photos 'look like' how we see things for ourselves. Of course, there are other types of camera lenses, such as 'fish eye', which are designed to mimic, erm, fish eyes, which is why those photos look 'strange' to us. Our eyes are designed so we can see and focus on things near to us. That's what gives us our 'perspective'.
  16. Yes, people are still this stupid. Solihull: Search continues after people pulled from icy lake From: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-63937739 From: https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/fire-crews-search-babbs-mill-25726634 I hope all those 'likes' and comments on your videos were worth ending up in hospital for. Smartphones make people dumb.
  17. BBC fails to answer the question at hand... Isn't December always chilly? From: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-63893192 The correct answer is of course "yes". "Experts predict the cold conditions may continue until Spring" What's causing the 'cold snap'? Umm, something to do with it being WINTER in the northern hemisphere. "Should we be surprised?" - NO because this happens EVERY YEAR at the same time EVERY YEAR. It's called WINTER!
  18. This is sad news, but does anyone else find this a bit 'odd'? Ruth Madoc: Hi-de-Hi! actress dies aged 79 From: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-63927507 The rest of the article is the usual tributes and condolences, but what I'm most interested in is the second line of the article only. She had a 'fall' earlier in the week, which required some surgery as a result, and then she subsequently 'died' on Friday afternoon. What gives? OK, at the age of 79 she's probably no spring chicken, but still, who expects to die following surgery after having a fall? I could understand her death if she had been seriously ill for some time, but something doesn't seem right about this. NHS medical negligence? A botched surgical operation? Deliberately 'bumped off'?
  19. This ties in with this article I read this morning: The self-proclaimed kingdom that doesn't recognise Germany From: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-63916812 It all starts off so promising, and it makes for some interesting reading. However it doesn't take long for this BBC journalist to start sticking the boot in. To be honest, I can believe him. There seems little point in trying to 'violently overthrow' the German government, but I think his current approach is better, reject the system and live outside it. Oh well they would say that. Maybe it is a bit 'cult-like', but it is the simple case that anyone who dares to 'counter the narrative' is automatically now assumed to be a conspiracy theorist or 'extremist' now. And again, this assumption that people who have refused the Covid jabs are "bad people". When people stop thinking for themselves, they stop thinking 'outside the box'. Lack of imagination and creative thinking causes stagnation, as all ideas are controlled, just to maintain the establishment narrative. Youngsters graduate from university with their 'degrees' and move into civil service or business roles, with their 'pre-programmed' beliefs and notions. This is why nothing changes for the better, because the 'free thinkers' are marginalised and dubbed 'conspiracy theorists' or 'extremists'. All part of the 'narrative enforcement', just like the role of the media. I'm all for this idea of setting up your own society 'outside of the state', however the only thing I would probably disagree with is having it ruled or overseen by a self-declared 'king'.
  20. Small Heath, Birmingham, or as I call it "Somal Heath" Also around the Stratford Road in Sparkbrook, near where I work, most of the people you see congregating around the cafes are Africans, there is a large population of Eritreans, Ethiopians and Somalians there as well as in neighbouring Small Heath. It doesn't bother me, and I've never had any hassle, but you're right, they've created their own little ghetto there. The shops and cafes are all used by the local community, and I bet many residents don't even leave the area.
  21. There are still hundreds, if not thousands, of Flat Earth related videos on YouTube. So it's hardly "suppressed". Though it does amuse me that YouTube are now adding the following onto Flat Earth videos:
  22. Antarctica is a particularly interesting topic, and while there are 'mysteries' surrounding it, I don't think it really ties in with the 'Flat Earth' stuff. If the planet is a globe, then periodically in its history, the poles have shifted, the axis of rotation has 'tilted', and the continent of Antarctica has 'moved' to the equatorial regions. When the poles shift back and the Earth tilts, Antarctica finds itself where it is now, at the south pole, covered in snow and ice. Whatever civilisation was living there, is buried under snow and ice now. In my opinion, 'Flat Earth' completely ignores or overlooks all of this. The 'tilting' of the poles, and the resulting crustal displacement, even go some way to explaining the 'Noah event' that caused a massive flood on this planet some 6000 years ago. Maybe the 'elites' are keen to get and maintain a foothold in Antarctica because they know when the next pole shift occurs, when the ice melts, its secrets will be revealed. And they'll have a new habitable land to live on. While the rest of us freeze to death.
