    The photo metadata I posted wasn't actually for the Trump bullet photo, it was just an example I found online. Sorry I should have made that more clear. Thanks for the link I'll read that later.


    Trump and the secret service clearly had foreknowledge as they knew there was no second shooter to spoil Trump's photo op. So many other holes in the story too.

    But the figures shown are about right for the shooting conditions. Lowest ISO (usually 100), small aperture (F11) to combat the bright conditions and get a greater depth of focus, around 1/200th shutter speed to counter blurring and establish the correct exposure.


    All standard stuff for that shot and what every photographer in the vicinity would be shooting at.


    To capture what we saw would require vastly different settings a million miles away from standard - the kind of settings trying ahead of time to capture a bullet in flight. Even then, they wouldn't get the shot we saw with one shot in a couple of hundred.

    Just found this MSN article which attempts to explain how the photo isn't fake. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/other/can-doug-mills-photo-of-a-bullet-and-president-trump-be-real-yes-heres-how/ar-BB1pXOeH

    I'm not convinced though, the chances of capturing that shot would still be miniscule I'd have thought. The photographer was Doug Mills, NY Times. The article reads like an ad for the Sony camera he used. Sounds like it can shoot at 300fps and really fast exposures, dunno how likely it is he'd use such fast settings unless he was expecting bullets . Digital cameras I think record meta data in photos with settings, etc.



    The other photo of Trump raising his fist was Washington Post I think. 

    This will explain the relationship between frame rate, shutter speed and aperture (f stop number) in the context of a moving bullet.




    The odds of getting the bullet in frame, regardless of capturing detail, are as close to zero as can be.


    His camera sensor is 22.3 x 14.9 mm (millimetres). 


    It would need to be nearer two METRES wide to stand any chance of capturing anything in frame at half the shutter speed recorded in the metadata above. He's also shooting with a tiny aperture (f11) because it was a very bright day.

    I'm tired and it's late, but we are looking at a steaming pile of bullshit here - that streak representing a bullet was added in post production, even accounting for it slowing down after allegedly hitting the lectern.

    Yeah, reminds me of what Brian Clough said in this interview from around 1980 about commentary/punditry, he's spot on here.


    Best manager never to manage England. No way were the stuffed shirts of the FA going to allow Cloughie to lead the national team. 


    There are so many hilarious stories of his highly unique man management methods. Ex keeper Mark Crossley tells a lot of them whilst doing a brilliant impression - they're on YouTube if you've never seen them.

    Spot on with you too! That’s the photo I was thinking of (the soldiers raising the flag in asia) and almost looked for it online and posted it. Glad someone else is thinking like this.

    Same here. I said the same thing at work today but was greeted by cries of 'conspiracy'.


    Somebody even mentioned nine foot lizard people.


    Being a keen photographer with an eye for seeing and conveying a concept or message, I knew the instant that I saw that image at 4am this morning that I couldn't better that composition if I tried.


    Defiance, patriotism, loyalty, bravery, a conquering victory over evil.

    just an ammeter trying to shoot Trump dead did not succeed, if they really wanted him dead, then there were plenty of opportunities to kill him practically at his golf course plenty of trees, put something in his food, you name it.

    The people at the top of the pyramid can take out anybody they want at any time, notwithstanding Divine protection. They remove their own further down the structure all the time.


    I think they'll take out Biden before anybody else.

    Couple of thoughts:


    Follow the bullet (if there was one) - who was in the same line of fire, and why weren't they hit? Will ballistics go look to see where it went.


    Who is the non-shooter dead person who attended? Be interesting to know their background and if they were a useful victim.

    If you look at the main photo they are feeding us, the bullet must have come from an invisible midget on the stage - presuming that the 'one dead' is the 'shooter on the roof'.


    The story will change numerous times.

    Pure theatre to further divide and destabilise America.

    Of course. The script will be full of symbolism once unpacked. You'll have the left and the right and the couldn't care less and the Q folk at each others' throats - mainly via words on screens but dividing in their psyches.


    I catch myself getting annoyed at the clown left (particularly places like Reddit, Facebook, mainstream media) even though I know it's all bollocks. I've even found myself defending Trump until I come to my senses and remember the bigger picture.


    They are very good at what they do.


    Trump derangement syndrome is every bit as real as left derangement syndrome. I react to clown world all the time even if only for a fleeting moment.

    Trying to scare and price us out of flying.


    British Airways owner IAG warns airfares must rise to fund carbon cuts



    It used to be dirt cheap to just turn up at an airport and grab a last minute flight. I found out this week, from somebody who'd done just that, it's anything but cheap and actually far more expensive to do than to book months in advance.


    You used to pay through the nose for advanced assurance of a timed flight but are now heavily punished for chancing your arm with minutes to go before take off.


    They'd rather lose money on an empty seat than give people an easy option of 'escaping' for any reason.

    Are large vaccine manufacturing facilities being built in many countries around the world?




    This is in the process of being built just down the road from me. It's some sort of partnership that involves the university and digital healthcare companies. It will be one of many and work started about the time that the jab went viral, if you get my drift.

    We need to remember too that some people might do 'OK' on coffee/caffeine, whilst others don't. I always maintained this when I would argue with friends about the health impacts of coffee whilst discussing it over a coffee 😂 (see what I mean about rituals). The way out bodies process certain things is different depending on our make-up. Obviously some things are bad for everyone, some are bad for most, and some are good. But I heard recently about the impact of coffee on an empty stomach and this made so much sense. It said that drinking coffee, particularly on an empty stomach raises the cortisol levels and stress hormones tremendously. This might explain why some people are affected more by coffee that others, not to mention the acidity which impact people differently depending on numerous other factors. 

    All I know is that my first coffee of the day needs to be consumed whilst sitting on the toilet.


    I used to drink twelve mugs a day (mainly on night shifts) but have drank only one to three a day for a few years now. Since doing that, the first one clears me out within a couple of minutes. Previously, it had no effect in that department no matter how much I drank.


    When I was consuming vast amounts, I noticed that I would get blinding headaches if I went without. That's the reason why I cut right down - went on a tapering schedule like one would do with opiates.

    Its amazing what people get with nowadays. If this was me or you we would be in prison by now. And all your property taken in payment.

    There might well have been an agreement in place, financially speaking, for using Tom as a poster boy for their genocide. Perhaps that involved certain immunities.

    The feeling of a reality having been warped has been escalating ever since 9/11. Before that there must have been plenty of weirdness going on, but I was blissfully unaware of it. Now, you'd need to be a dullard or wilfully blinkered to not notice.

    Same here. Life went from a normal living room to one with an elephant reclining on the sofa - which had always been there but I hadn't noticed.

    I was in hospital ( Not vaxx related ) and everyone was in there for blood clots. One guy was rolling around the ward in a wheel chair he had to have both of his legs cut off because of veins and arteries all bunged up, another guy lost sight in one eye because of clots. Another guy had kidney problems because his kidneys were blocked up and stressed.

    I used to laugh at these people and call them sheep, but i more feel sorry them now having permanent health problems, permantly being in a wheel chair for the rest of your life, not nice.

    I got better and left the hospital,while the friends i had made were staring at the hospital tv, watching the bbc, discussing their next booster


    Incredibly, or perhaps not, the unvaxxed are still being called granny killers. We were the cowardly, the uneducated, the paranoid, the cruel and uncaring ones spreading fear through lies. 


    I remember the main argument from colleagues at work back in 2021 being 'if only everybody had to be vaccinated or face jail, the virus would no longer claim lives'.


    It is these sorts, ironically, that helped put an end to so many lives. The psychopaths at the top used the media as their prophet and the masses as their evangelists.


    The ones telling the truth were stoned to death. Some things never change.

  15. As with Bulley and other high profile media missing persons cases (Maddie is still going strong after 17 years), the only solution to this problem is to be proactive.


    Perhaps some sort of internal trackable digital passport could put an end to all this parental worry and strain on policing services.

    The Reach MSN rags have gone into overdrive with this Jay Slater story, the homepage of the Birmingham Mail website is rife with numerous 'stories'.


    I can't help but feel this is 'Nicola Bulley' all over again, and its a big distraction that the MSN are using to milk people for ad revenue through click-bait.

    Just saw your post after posting the same observation. I'm in Birmingham and the Birmingham Live (along with all the other Reach PLC comics) are loving it - hundreds of copy and paste postings across England and Wales.

    His friend, Lucy, comes across as well dodgy, something about her and her story doesn´t add up. I would be very surprised if she is not involved in some way. 

    All the characters in this story come across as shady. With the media saturation and endless speculations, this has the same feel as the Nicola Bulley psyop.


    It is quite possible that a genuine story can be hijacked for various purposes but this seems all very scammy to me.

    has anyone else noticed ppl with hacking coughs lately.

    i'm surrounded by em at work

    Yes. There's four in the office that have been barking and hacking since last year. Three of them have been multiple jabbed and one of them is not jabbed, but sits next to the three for forty hours a week.


    One lad, apart from them, has been barking (really does sound like a big dog) for a good eighteen months. He's been jabbed to the eyeballs and been off sick for half that time. All of them are non smokers.


    Just got off the phone with my two younger children. Both are hacking away and were doing so months back. Their mum also has had a bad cough which she can't shift. I asked the kids if they are the only ones coughing at school - they said that loads are, and have been for ages. 


    I don't know if the ex wife's live-in boyfriend has been jabbed but all her family have and are round there every week. I forbade all jabs whilst still married and got told I was a control freak by the in-laws as a result. The church were also concerned that I might be listening to the wrong people. I told them straight all of them were deceived and left. Could go on a rant here but won't as I'm sure everyone here has experienced division with loved ones and I don't want to open any wounds.


    On the buses here in Birmingham, there's always numerous people of all ages with something that sounds like whooping cough. I've never known anything like it in all my sixty years.
