  1. It doesn't matter really, its meaningless. The USA can just keep 'borrowing' money because... From: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-64341875 It's all just fictional money that doesn't exist on paper. One does have to wonder who is 'buying this debt' from the USA and why?
  2. I'm pretty sure that if anyone digs deep enough, all these 'charities', 'foundations' and 'trusts' may be set up with good intentions by these so-called 'philanthropists', but they are ultimately just vehicles for money laundering, pushing the 'agenda', and disguising other inhuman or criminal activities.
  3. I'm noticing a pattern now which concerns me, and is why I don't watch so many of his videos now. While there's a lot of stuff he puts out which I don't fundamentally disagree with, it bothers me that since his "personal journey over the last year", he's started doing a bit of preaching and quoting Bible passages. I'm sure the likes of @alexa lap this all up But fundamentally, religion itself (not just Christianity by the way) is all part of the 'control system', and a means of 'divide and conquer', something that Hugo has railed against in the past. Now before Hugo Talks rose to some prominence, I did use to follow Dave Cullen (Computing Forever) on YouTube, who I believe started out making videos about computing and tech stuff, before embracing political commentary. Like Hugo, Dave made some interesting videos with some good talking points, but then at some point, he also 'discovered his faith', made some 'controversial' videos which were removed from YouTube, and then subsequently found his YouTube channel deleted, before retreating to the alternative video-sharing sites. (Dave does still have his 'other' channel on YouTube, "The Dave Cullen Show", which went quiet for a while, but recently he has started posting videos again, mostly whining about Star Trek and Marvel movies and how 'woke' they are, but stays clear of 'controversial' topics) Someone else I've been following on YouTube is David Kurten, Heritage Party leader and former UKIP London Assembly member. I've always liked the fella and what he has to say, but again of late, I'm being put off because of his promotion and pushing of Christianity. There may be other examples that I'm not aware of because I don't follow them, but has anyone else noticed other YouTube/social media 'influencers' pushing or preaching about Christianity or any other religion for that matter? Here's a prediction: give it a few more weeks or couple of months, and Hugo Talks will claim he has been 'banned' by YouTube.
  4. I find this kind of stuff fascinating. There is one obelisk near me, which I have been intending to go and have another look at for some time. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Lickey+Monument/@52.3753885,-2.0126868,557m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x4870951a943e777b:0x8a108ed3f762ca38!8m2!3d52.374642!4d-2.0130385 It's located off Monument Lane in Lickey, up in the Lickey Hills near Cofton Hackett, south-west of Birmingham.
  5. I don't know, can you tell me? My intention is to die having lived a life which I have enjoyed to the maximum, not beholden to the fearmongering of the mainstream media, nor the alternative media for that matter. I politely reject your binary choice that you present.
  6. According to Ben Davidson of SpaceWeatherNews / Suspicious0bservers, we are currently in sunspot maximum for this current solar cycle. I believe this is different to 'grand solar minimum' that others speculate about, and while he believes this will happen, it is still some way off and definitely isn't happening during this current cycle. You're right that the solar cycle takes 11 years, but this can vary. As well as health effects, it also influences the climate and weather on our planet. Take a look at the current 'very cold weather' in the UK we had in December and are about to have again in January. The last time this happened was in December 2010, which was of course 12 years ago, but the solar cycle can vary slightly in length. Same can be said for heatwaves and 'record heat'. With regards to 'pandemics' it is surely also no coincidence that the 'last' pandemic which was related to 'swine flu' occured in 2009, pretty much 11 years prior to the 'Covid' pandemic in 2020. So if you look at the bigger picture and factor in the solar cycle activity, the 'next' pandemic should occur in around 2031-2032. Unless the sun does a 'micro-nova' and wipes us all out first!
  7. John O'Looney. Come on, that name alone should be enough to set off alarm bells in the mind of any good critical thinker! Didn't he start out as the funeral director who questioned why the number of burials didn't rise dramatically during the pandemic? He then subsequently started appearing on a number of podcasts? Now he's making claims that he met with an MP at Chatham House and all this stuff was 'revealed' to him? I don't bother with Telegram, but what you describe has all the hallmarks of a 'controlled opposition' to me. As I have repeatedly said before, while there are vast amounts of misinfo/disinfo being pushed and promoted by the 'mainstream media', I do believe there is equally a lot of misinfo/disinfo being circulated amongst the 'alternative' circles.
  8. More sensationalist bullshit from the Daily Mail: After the floods, here comes the 'Nightmare from the North'... A six-day shiver that will bring snow to the south and temperatures as low as -15C in some areas From: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11636499/A-six-day-shiver-bring-snow-south-temperatures-low-15C-areas.html While it is the middle of winter up here in the UK, it is of course also the height of summer on Antarctica. This particular research base is located near the coast, where it is typically much warmer. Further inland, it might currently be 'sunny' but temperatures are still around -30C, so hardly a 'fair comparison', just like the story I linked earlier in this thread which claimed Britain was 'hotter than the Sahara', which was only borderline true. And while both the Sahara Desert and the continent of Antarctica are massive areas of land compared to the size of the UK, despite the small size of our islands, the weather varies a great deal here. If you want to know what the weather is going to be like where you are, then look at a weather forecast website for your local area. Don't go by what the national media report, and even your 'local' news websites just regurgitate the same rubbish.
  9. There's a hell of a lot of BS in these weather-related 'news' articles. For starters, "nightmare from the north", wonder how long it took someone to think that one up! Then there's the BS about the UK being 'colder than the Antarctic'. So it's going to be -15C at night in some remote northern part of Britain, during the middle of winter. This Antarctic research base is on the coast of Antarctica, where it is typically warmer than the rest of the continent, and of course it is now the middle of summer down there. Sensationalist fear-mongering is all it is.
  10. Basically yes. Polaris is millions of miles away, but due to scale and perspective, it always appears in the sky in the same place. It's the "Small Or Far Away" principle as demonstrated here: Our closest star, the Sun, is itself orbiting around the centre of our galaxy, exactly the same as every other star we can see in the night sky. Therefore it should be no surprise that our night skies look pretty much the same as they have been observed for the last few hundreds of years.
  11. I don't actually find this JP Sears bloke that funny, certainly doesn't appeal to my own contorted sense of humour.

    Golden Retriever finds sex toy on walk and refuses to let it go From: https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/black-country/golden-retriever-finds-sex-toy-25978133 Brings new meaning to the phrase "to give a dog a bone"
  13. It does, just that due to the scale, the earth's orbit around the sun is not noticeable.
  14. One of my favourite dialogues from the classic movie "The Lost Boys" Grandpa Now, on Wednesdays when the mailman brings the TV Guide sometimes the address label is curled up just a little. You'll be tempted to tear it off. Don't. You'll only wind up rippin' the cover and I don't like that. And stay outta here. Sam Wait, you have a TV? Grandpa No. I just like to read the TV Guide. Read the TV Guide, you don't need a TV. Pretty much sums up how I think about this 'book' and how much coverage it is getting in the media. And actually, it says a whole lot about the state of the news media nowadays, considering this film came out in 1987.
  15. Here's how this works:

    1. Covid 'pandemic' and lockdowns destroy the UK tourist industry
    2. Lots of hoteliers face ruin as they have empty hotels, because guests are frightened to travel and visit them
    3. Hoteliers are then offered money by the Government (via Serco) to house illegal immigrants and asylum seekers
    4. UK tourist industry fails to recover because visitors are unable to make bookings because 'hotels fully booked'
    5. The few hotels available that are NOT accommodating immigrants charge a premium for a booking, because of 'supply and demand'
    6. Brits forced to stay at home because there is nowhere available for them to travel to on holiday, or they simply can't afford it.

      Mr Crabtree

      And then, after destroying the tourist industry, the Yanks will buy our NHS, I said this at the start of the 'PLANDEMIC' when Boris Bunter was the puppet figure 'in charge', run the service into the ground and then sell it to our friends the Americans at a 'knock down' price! Big American institutions and investors will milk us dry and spit out the pips! Everything, and everybody is just a commodity to be bought and sold to line the pockets of the likes of Sunak, even more than they are now!

      Just like with the farmers being bled dry, then nudged to grow certain crops that don't feed anyone, for a few more quid.

    3. Mr Crabtree

      Mr Crabtree

      Yes exactly right, I used to have the rabbiting rights on a big farm in Newhaven, and the farmer next door { a really miserable and tight man } got paid by the E.U. to grow nothing in certain fields, I think it was officially called' Set Aside Fields'?

  16. This must be what Reach journalists use to write their articles. Q: write a news story about a sinkhole in a Birmingham road A sinkhole has appeared on a busy road in Birmingham, causing chaos for commuters and disrupting traffic in the area. The sinkhole, which is believed to be around ten feet wide and fifteen feet deep, appeared suddenly on the road early this morning. Emergency services were quickly on the scene, and the road was closed to traffic while repairs were carried out. According to local authorities, the sinkhole was caused by a collapsed underground storm drain. Engineers are currently working to repair the drain and fill in the sinkhole, but it is expected to take several days to complete the work. In the meantime, commuters are being advised to find alternative routes and to expect delays. The closure of the road has caused significant disruption to traffic in the area, and there have been reports of long queues and delays on surrounding roads. The authorities have urged drivers to be patient and to follow the diversions and traffic control measures that are in place. They have also urged residents to check for updates and to follow any additional travel advice that may be issued. It is not yet known when the road will be fully reopened, but authorities say they are working as quickly as possible to complete the repairs and get traffic moving again. In the meantime, they have urged drivers to take extra care and to be aware of the potential for further delays.

    Bats filmed upside down makes great Goth music video
  18. Excuse me but how has this topic degenerated from discussing David Attenborough to arguing about Jews and Nazis?
  19. Victims of Perth hotel fire tragedy named From: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-64186472 I suppose there is always the remote possibility that these people are 'vicsims' - people that didn't exist but whose identities have been somehow fabricated. The inclusion of the death of the dog does seem a little odd to me. Still, the question that remains unanswered is that of "what actually happened", ie what caused the fire in the first place.
  20. The weakening of the jet stream causes it to 'meander' or undulate further north and south. It causes more colder air from the Arctic to be sucked further south, while also causing more warmer air from the equator to be sucked north - that's why while the USA had the extreme cold and snow just before Christmas while at the same time the UK had relatively mild weather following the 'cold snap'.
  21. Homepage of the Birmingham Mail website just now, I counted 13 'stories', all about Harry and what's 'revealed' in this book. They think they're doing it for 'promotion', but the more that the media 'reveal' about the book, the less likely people are going to need to buy a copy. Harry and Meghan are the worst narcissistic attention-seekers in the whole Royal Family.
  22. Which is strange as most Muslims (certainly here in Birmingham) keep voting Labour, a supposed left-wing party.
  23. I saw that same story yesterday and that indeed was the first question I asked myself.
  24. Paedophiles are a 'minority' (thankfully), but under the rules laid out by the 'woke' and the virtue-signallers, all 'minorities' must be 'protected' in order to prevent the majority from discriminating against - or 'oppressing' - them. People who engage in criminal activity are also a minority, so how soon are we from having them 'excused' from their behaviour in order to avoid them being 'offended'?
