Basic engineering error!

 

When I studied engineering, the first thing  we were shown was this video:

 

 

We were also given the warning, "When Doctors kill it is in the ones, when engineers do it is in the hundreds or thousands."

I am no longer surprised, I knew everyone knew this but I will mention on some of the imageboards I explore there are numerous bots that exist for the purpose of quelling Covid-19 discussion, certain ET discussions, certain spiritual discussions and filling the board with nonsense/disinformation.

 

The other thing is for the non-bot like responses is that I've been directly hassled by individuals who promote a technocratic agenda or use esoteric double speak as to try and derail the sharing of spiritually helpful information. All the same I am glad our community here has a strong foundation and anchor.

Wow, just wow.

 

This is why people need to be taught how to spot subversive behaviour. Once you're awake, you remain awake eternally and it's easier to spot the subversion. I pray that people wake up from their cultural amnesia soon.

Ayman Odeh on Twitter: "מזעזע https://t.co/7JM5ADoPJf" / Twitter

"Thousands of Jews dancing and singing because they think the al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock, which are built on the Temple Mount, have caught on fire. Meaning they can finally build the Third Temple and usher in the Anti-Christ."

 

Evidently these were shared on an imageboard, unsure if valid but interesting? It at this point is redundant for me to actually say something weird is happening in Jerusalem.

 

Edit: High possibility simply a tree is being burnt. All the same was worth minor news.

The Big Issue has teamed up with PayPal, using its Zettle card readers to ensure our vendors are ready for the cashless post-Covid world. It’s already reaping rewards.

Dealers have been doing the same thing for years. Widescale dealing is done via Onion sites but has rocketed this last year if the forums I visit are anything to go by - obviously Crypto and never PayPal.

SNL's Michael Che Responds After Show Is Accused of Cultural Appropriation

From the article:

"The skit, written by Michael Che, titled "Gen Z Hospital" featured Kate McKinnon, Mikey Day, Heidi Gardner, Ego Nwodim, Bowen Yang, and host Elon Musk using slang terms like "bestie," "no cap," "go off, king," "sis," "gang gang," and "it's the.... for me."

Many of those phrases are used in African American Vernacular English (AAVE), so some viewers responded to the skit on social media saying it was cultural appropriation or improperly labeled as the language as having only to do with Gen Z teenagers.

"This Gen Z hospital skit on SNL is so stupid. I'm so tired of nonblack people throwing random AAVE terms in their sentences and calling that horse s–t 'Gen Z language,'" one person tweeted."

 

From me:

African American Vernacular English? Apparently, the term Ebonics has been upgraded?

Huge Nerd Demi Lovato Will Investigate UFOs in a New Peacock Series

 

The show will follow Lovato, her skeptical best friend Matthew, and her sister Dallas “as they attempt to uncover the truth about the UFO phenomena.” The trio will consult with leading experts and “investigate recent eyewitness encounters, uncover secret government reports, and conduct tests at known UFO hot spots.

 

Now, we should finally get to the bottom of this whole UFO thing. Thanks, Demi!

They don't say what type of infections are going around.. 

But.. Could this be a result of exposing children to a high number of vaccinated staff? 

(whoops, I should have put this into the viral shedding thread. 

Sorry! Just woke up)

Tournament Earth 2021: See the Winning Astronaut Photograph

https://scitechdaily.com/tournament-earth-2021-see-the-winning-astronaut-photograph/

 

Lake Van, Turkey

 

While orbiting on the International Space Station, astronaut Kate Rubins shot this photograph of part of Lake Van in Turkey, the largest soda or alkaline lake on Earth. Generally, soda lakes are distinguished by high concentrations of carbonate species. Lake Van is an endorheic lake—it has no outlet, so its water disappears by evaporation—with a pH of 10 and high salinity levels.
