• WWIII

    From Lee Lofaso@2:203/2 to All on Saturday, June 29, 2019 17:11:01
    It will happen.

    Sooner than you think.

    This has all been predicted.

    http://www.exploratoryastrology.dk/412093334


    Sorry, none of these predictions are by Nostradamus.

    The only question is whether WWIII begins in August 2019,
    or in August 2020.

    Who wins this war really doesn't matter.

    Even though all the psychics agree who started it.

    No time for that, he'll be sitting on an asteroid counting all his gold.

    Anyway, the next WW may be WWA (A for alien) just as well as WWIII...

    You mean call it the "end times". We are too insignificant and inferior
    in all ways to any alien race that decides to visit or conquer this planet. I guarantee you that we are all the trash of the galaxy. All of these idiots who obsess about space exploration and going to Mars and finding life on other planets just can't get their heads around the idea that maybe we are just not wanted by the rest of the galaxy. We didn't get that party invitation...

    Its pretty hard for me to get on board with cheering over our supposed "evolution" of our species when a portion of our world's population still starves in 2019, another portion shits in the streets, and on this side of the pond another portion worships the Kardashians. Oh but we have the best footwear and smartphones, and the porn isn't all that bad either.

    I for one, would welcome our supreme alien overlords...

    Not to mention how we continue to burn fossil fuel as if there was no impact

    Many companies worldwide make millions, maybe even billions? From the production and processing of fossil fuel. Too much at stake for them to just jump ship and go with something cleaner.

    We don't have any real good ones here in Canada, especially our PM. He was really only elected based on his famous last name... and his hair.

    Canadian media pokes fun at Trump, but believe me, we have our fair share of problems. Whats the old saying... people who live in glass houses should
    not cast stones?

    If its not the pollution that ends us, its our politically-correct nonsense.

    Whilst men are linked together, they easily and speedily communicate the alarm of any evil design. They are enabled to fathom it with common counsel, and to oppose it with united strength. Whereas, when they lie dispersed, without concert, order, or discipline, communication is uncertain, counsel difficult, and resistance impracticable. Where men are not acquainted with each other's principles, nor experienced in each other's talents, nor at all practised in their mutual habitudes and dispositions by joint efforts in business; no personal confidence, no friendship, no common interest, subsisting among them; it is evidently impossible that they can act a public part with uniformity, perseverance, or efficacy. In a connection, the most inconsiderable man, by adding to the weight of the whole, has his value, and his use; out of it, the greatest talents are wholly unserviceable to the public. No man, who is not inflamed by vain-glory into enthusiasm, can flatter himself that his single, unsupported, desultory, unsystematic endeavours, are of power to defeat the subtle designs and united cabals of ambitious citizens. When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice
    in a contemptible struggle.

    The problem with modern elections, it doesn't change anything. You still have no say in the running of the country and you still get an arsehole
    in power.

    This is another issue.

    Let me say that the political class of a nation is the expression of the people
    of the nation itself.

    In the last european polling in Italy less than 35% of the people went to the polls, the worse of it obviously looking at the results.

    But if all the people had come to the polls and voided the polling card, well something would be changed.

    The polls are our only weapon to change something and the politicians know it.

    Sweden was a little bit better with more than 55%. Far from the usual 85-90%
    in our national elections though.

    But if all the people had come to the polls and voided the polling card, well something would be changed.

    Blank votes "got" 0.73% this year, down from 1.04% in the 2014 election.

    Voting is compulsory for Australian citizens - so they get virtually 100% turnout here. They still get arseholes in government as there is no other choice, Arsehole A or Arsehole B.

    Life is a lot like toilet paper. You're either on a roll or you're

    But the trees! What about the trees?

    Canadian forests are being chopped down so that wealthy Americans
    can wipe their a$$ with plush toilet paper. What will Canadians do
    when their beloved forests are gone? What are they going to wipe
    themselves with?

    Just north of Baton Rouge, Louisiana an entire forest has been
    chopped down so that the wealthy inhabitants of the area can wipe
    their a$$ for cheap. As a result, the people who chopped down
    the forest are out of a job, as there are no longer any more
    trees to chop down. This has resulted in a record number of
    foreclosures, with people unable to pay their bills or pay their
    mortgages.

    How many forests from around the world have to be depleted before
    somebody realizes there are no more trees to produce oxygen for the
    human race? I guess it is more important that rich folks wipe their
    a$$ in comfort than the rest of humankind being able to breathe.

    Actually Chimborazo in Ecuador would be a better choice.

    It's the highest mountain above Earth's center, and since the sea level will
    follow the gravity, it means that this peak eventually will be the last to be submerged.

    Not so. Sea level follows a surface of equal potential energy. The earth rotation comes into play and causes that surface to flatten at the poles.
