  1. Hillary Clinton

    https://www.truthorfiction.com/clintonfriends/ Most of the list is a fabrication or heavy distortion of the facts, usually a real but explained death tied in to the Clintons by an imaginary or highly tenuous link. Number 2 on the list for example, was an intern (lowest of the low) at the WH and she was murdered (along with 2 others) in a robbery, but the claims about "going public" rest entirely upon her sharing the same initial M as Ms Lewinsky. Edit: 14, 17/18, 23, 27-35 are interesting because the Mena Airport case may have been a genuine conspiracy, the problem is that if it was then it involved Regan/Bush and the only link to Clinton was that he was governor of the state at the time.
  2. Vegas Shooter on Psyche meds

    That would imply about 100,000 rounds fired. My point was that the maximum practical R.O.F for an AR-15 is about 200 RPM, and to achieve that over more than about 1 minute requires multiple spare rifles (which the shooter had, but that isn't going to push him above 200 RPM).

    Have you got a source for those numbers or are they your own workings? If the latter I suspect you're off by about 5 times.
  4. I'm not sure about the money thing, although the gap in income between the big 2 and the rest is huge in Spain, the top 6 English clubs are in the top 10 worldwide and the Spaniards aren't that far ahead of them (actually Man U are top): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forbes'_list_of_the_most_valuable_football_clubs I think there are several different things going on: Manchester Utd have been in long term decline since the Glazers took over (look at the signings over the years); Manchester City have spent absurd sums of money to little effect; Arsenal have been paying for the new stadium, but also suffer from losing their best players to the likes of City; Chelsea have cut back their spending quite a lot; the others aren't establised enough as the top club in England to compete for top players. I think the bigger problem is that England don't have enough good players and frequently have glaring weaknesses in the side, I mean look at Sunday's starting line up: a guy who''s started 4 PL matches in midfield; 2 central defenders who've spent most of their career outside of the top flight; a couple of 27 year old full backs with 5 caps between them pushed into midfield; this is not really what you'd expect to see from a side that "should" be winning major tournaments. It's been the same for years, a decent number of players that are close to world class but a squad that is too weak overall to make an impact.
  5. Man Tests Out Bullet Resistant Properties of Books

    It will IF the book is thick enough (at 3.30 if it doesn't start in the right place) Spoiler (highlight to see): you will need at least 2,000 pages.
  6. In that case I'd better jump in and say this is starting to look to me like nothing more than a simple RTA, possibly involving a drunk driver. Everything else is hysteria.
  7. Fire at Grenfell Tower, London. Not looking good.

    I suspect the buck-passing is going to be epic: the council/TMO will say that it was designed to standard and appropriately signed off by a qualified inspector as such; the builidng inspector will (by now) have a perfect file to prove that appropriate checks were made, evidence and assurances were obtained such that he reasonably believed that the work was being performed to standard the contractor will say that appropriate materials were supplied and instructions were given to a sub-contractor and that as far as he was aware the works were perfored to standard, building inspections confirming this. If instructions were not followed and sub-standard materials used then "OMG I must have been ripped off, the subbie must've sold the good stuff on the black market etc......." the subbie will say "Nie mówię po angielsku" It's going to be a question of what evidence can be found to prove wrongdoing, 1 and 2 are probably smart enough to have covered their backs with the appropriate paperwork but if notes or correspondence can be found that contradict this they may be in trouble. 4 presumably will be untraceable and if found will deny everything and just say he did what he was told to do. The contractor is likely to be the one facing (manslaughter?) charges but even then it could be difficult to prove We know that the company was liquidated so it's uncertain if the business records still exist, without them it might be very hard to prove anything Assuming that they do still exist then it should'nt be too hard to establish what materials were supplied and hence whether the contractor knew what was being done In the end it may come down to who was on site, if the contractor spent most of his time there then he'll have a hard time explaining anything else away. All of this is of course speculation, it is possible that everything was done by the book and the rules are simply garbage, I am however surprised that old bill hasn't already kicked down doors and carted away anything that might be evidence relevant to the investigation.
  8. Fire at Grenfell Tower, London. Not looking good.

    Who said it is? It strikes me the problem is enforcement, the implications (I presume) of non-compliance with building regulations are that the council can force you to comply (in this case tear it all down and do it again properly) but there are two problems: the council must be aware of the non-compliance; in the case of council owned properties there is a conflict of interest, in that enforcing compliance entails a substantial cost to the same body that is charged with enforcement. So in an ideal world a buildings inspector would view the works being done in real time, declare it non-compliant and enforce the remedial works. In the real world I suspect the inspector would only visit on a handful of occasions and I guess that it is childs play to make it appear that the works are compliant whilst at the same time using substandard materials with the results that we have seen. Even if the inspector knows or suspects that the works are sub-standard the pressure is on him to turn a blind eye for fear of landing his bosses with a multi-milliion pound bill. I suspect what happened here is that the designers specified a completely fire safe system that if installed properly would've given us a small fire in someone's kitchen that might have merited one paragraph in the local paper, the job was then contracted out to the lowest bidder who used cheaper flamable materials and conned the inspector one way or another into thinking it was built to spec

    Nice shop you have here, I hope it doesn't burn down.
  10. Should Corbyn Resign Now?

    In some respects May has done the Labour party a favour by calling this election, whether they'll make use of it or carry on with Corbyn or another loony left leader is another matter. Pathetic stuff whining about the "elites" and "tax cheats and greedy bankers" that all really comes down to shaking the magic money tree some more.

    "Hospitals saw 5,510 patients, seventeen of whom were deemed critical, thirty-seven severe and 984 moderately ill with vision problems. Most of those reporting to hospitals were the "worried well", who had to be distinguished from those who were ill"

    Total fatalities from that attack: 8, and that's multiple releases in a confined and heavily populated space.

    To repeat, John Roberts, conservative Republican appointed by G W Bush. The judges themselves may have been made judges by Clinton (among no doubt hundreds of others), but it was Roberts who appointed them to the FISC Edit: Interesting link, so Roberts has appointed 16 judges to the FISC 3 of which were from the Clinton era, and therefore 13 who weren't. The court also potentially includes a number of judges appointed by his predecessor, who may well date back to the Reagan/Bush (G H) era.

    Please do your homework: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Foreign_Intelligence_Surveillance_Court The court's judges are appointed solely by the Chief Justice of the United States without confirmation or oversight by the U.S. Congress. This gives the chief justice the ability to appoint like-minded judges and create a court without diversity............... Since FISA was enacted in 1978, we've had three chief justices, and they have all been conservative Republicans. Warren E. Burger (Nixon), William Rehnquist (Reagan) and John Roberts (G W Bush) if you're interested. Well, if you're just going to make stuff up you can make it sound however you want it to.

    Kind of like a 21st century version of "Germany Calling".
