Daily Thread – 20 October 2022

Todays date might be important if you are into numerology!

I’m not, but feel free to contribute if you are!

So what has been going on? First, I can’t really embed YouTube links anymore, not sure why. But we persevere:

(1) Liz Truss finds out hard way she will be scapegoat for Ukraine disaster – Push for Liz Truss to resign. Economic crisis in France deepens – YouTube – the boys at the Duran do good work.

(2) Robert Barnes talks to them about why Russia is about to go hard on Ukraine – Timing is everything w/Robert Barnes (Live) – YouTube – this is very much about November 8, and i think Kiev might fall by then if Putin really wants to stick it to the Democrats.

(3) Kanye is not black anymore –

(4) Surovikin – General Armageddon – says Russian general in charge of Ukraine operation speaks out — RT Russia & Former Soviet Union – “The enemy is the criminal regime that pushes Ukrainian citizens towards death. We are one people with Ukrainians and only wish for Ukraine to be a state independent from the West and NATO and friendly towards Russia,” – probably true.

(5) Some of us might be getting into a different business!

(6) Michael Burry – of Big Short fame – has some thoughts on the Emma Renay!

(7) The Architect notices something weird. In fairness, leftists sacrificing their own children for status has a long and sordid history.

(8) Many folks here have nothing to worry about!

Good work, as always, T.

Numerology is very important! You all should definitely set some time aside on 11 November (11/11) at 11:11 AM! Angel numbers will certainly manifest themselves in a spiritually powerful moment! And if you start drinking 11% beverage at precisely that point and finish the 11th beverage precisely at 11:11 PM, you are almost certainly guaranteed many spirit (ually) powerful moments throughout the day!

FWIW:
1 – I have also read the conservatives have their new saviour waiting in the wings: BoJo! No shit!
3 – He has evolved into a crazy cracker, hey!
4 – Full statement with English subtitles
5 – I would take a discount for a personal delivery, depending on the photos
8 – I thought the unvaxxed were more likely to die off because of climate change? While vaxxed will keel off because of the jabs?

Huh, I was told when drinking booze best policy is ten before ten (pm)

Gruppenführer Mark

I bet it is a bit difficult to get a doctor’s cert that the death is covid-related. Just a common case of SADS is what it likely is.

A fly in your ointment

I doubt it will be difficult.
It will be impossible, punishable by lifetime disdoctorisation.
How is one to prove a death by Jabbadabba and not the underlying illness or the Fauci-flu itself?
Think of Fauci-flu death count over the last 3 years, just in reverse.

Shae The Burmese

I’d like to know about any funerals not “involving death”. Who are the Masters graduates writing this garbage?!

Stewie

LOL

“The measurement of higher numbers of deaths than predicted does not tell us why this is occurring. There are a few reasons hypothesised around the world (where non-COVID excess is arising to a greater or lesser extent). It isn’t possible to identify from death counts alone what is causing the non-COVID excess, but we discuss the most likely explanations.

Of the possible explanations for non-COVID excess mortality in Australia in 2022, we believe that post-COVID sequelae and interactions with other causes of death are likely to be the most significant factor.”

In other words “We’ll say 13% excess death count doesn’t tell us what is causing it, there are a few hypothosis around. But we’ll take this opportunity to tell you the most palatable msm acceptable version, while ignoring the explanation that focuses on a substantial change at the median between the 3 measurement periods – the mass vaccinations that occurred in that period but not the prior periods.”

How long should this normally take ?
im hoping for an answer today or tomorrow so we can move on with our lives

if they haven’t already come up with an answer maybe hung is most likely

surely won’t be unanimously guilty – at least one of the 4 men on the jury must have some common sense

Will be either ng or hung in my opinion

“surely won’t be unanimously guilty – at least one of the 4 men on the jury must have some common sense”

in this case a verdict right away could be both very bad or very good for brucey

Hung jury with Britt not wanting to be a part of a retrial in order to keep the remaining shred of credibility for her book deal. She will of course blame mental health, the prosecutor making her suicidal, etc.

Hopefully Brucie goes after the slob in civil court but Britt probably doesn’t and will never have a dollar to her name after this debacle. Brucie looks fucked as well unless he is completely exonerated. Any place with a HR department won’t hire him.

the fact that thtey’re not capable of rape is why theyre incel in the first place

 We are one people with Ukrainians and only wish for Ukraine to be a state independent from the West and NATO and friendly towards Russia,” – probably true.

A significant portion of the Ukraine don’t seem to agree with this sentiment.

Xoxo

Ukraine should be split into then. The eastern part populated by Russians since the fall of the khazarian khagante in the 10th century should to go to Russia as the people there wantl it. Easternn Ukraine was always part of Russia and for or Crimea, maybe it should back to Turkey before the Russians took it at the second Russia Turkish war.

, 
Stewie

But who’d want to be a Turk?

Gruppenführer Mark

I think you are missing a very important point. Since the fall of USSR, and I have commented on this some time back, the world has gained 15 new countries. All but one (Russia itself) asserted themselves as uni-cultural, playing the nationalistic card. Whether it’s Ukraine, Baltic states, ore one of the many stans, the MO was always the same – throw Russians out and return the country to its native peoples.

Russia did not do this, as it was always a MultiCult society throughout the history, and reverting to vapid nationalism ment for her to isolate vast numbers of its populace.

Since, only one former Soviet Republic remained steadfast on Russia’s side, and only after it’s current dictator has taken reigns. You guessed it, Belarus. Lukashenko, the last dictator in Europe, as was known 10 years ago, asserted Belarus’ sovereignty, but not a national identity that was at odds with Russia.

Back to Ukraine. For the last 30 years anti-russian propaganda was running rife. In the last 10 years or so, it reached a fever pitch. Anything Russian was banned, language, culture, music, you name it. It’s hard for an average Ivan to deflect or refuse the constant stream of Russia bad. Hence, in the early days of the SMO (slow-moving operation), when Russia believed that they would be greted as liberators, this did not happen.

Now Russia is trying to change the rules of engagement, targeting critical infrastructure but still is unwilling to carpet-bomb the holdout cities. I guess logic is that people will freeze and starve, but remain alive. How well that plays out, we are yet to see.

Aaahh…no no no no no no.

Think “Serious compromise of government official by hostile actor”.

Think “Senator targeted by OMCG for intelligence collection”.

How about “Poor judgement at a level requiring removal from office”

She should be removed from Parliament immediately.

bjw678

Isn’t that a decision for the people who voted her in.
If they want a bikie moll in parliament that is their perogative…

It just highlights one of the many failings of representative democracy.

It’s a poor reflection on her morals and ethics. You don’t become a senior member of the bikies unless you have done some reprehensible things in your life.

Do you become a senior politician without reprehensible things?

Seriously?

She was on a parliamentary committee investigating outlaw motorcycle gangs, and therefore in receipt of classified information about those gangs. At the same time she was rogering a senior member of one of those gangs while keeping all that a secret. She did this against the advice of her staff who described the potential harm as “catastrophic”.

I worked closely with the agencies in my, previous life, and I know in great detail how hostile actors work. This is one of the worst things I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen some things. She’s now under investigation by the AFP to see what she’s revealed, . Her position in the senate is untenable.

I wouldn’t be surprised if she was deliberately targeted by the dude for compromise.

Aussie Soy Boy

It should be treated as a criminal matter.

bjw678

She did this against the advice of her staff who described the potential harm as “catastrophic”.

The staff who didn’t report it need investigating as much as she does.

lswchp

They did report it! That’s the thing. They reported it according to party protocols, and they were ignored, at least according to the ABC.

bjw678

If the police didn’t know he was rogering her she probably had better intelligence on the gangs than they did…
And if the people think that behaviour is inappropriate they can vote the greens out of parliament next election, or choose to keep them. For good or bad this is how representative democracy works, public servants don’t get to arbitrarily choose who gets to be in parliament.

Freddy

I thought Sam Dastiyari’s position was untenable after being busted receiving payments from the Chinese. I was wrong. He had to dig himself a much deeper hole over the next few months before Labor decided to get rid of him.

Stewie

I thought she was divorced?

I like this quote from back in 2021:

In December 2021, Thorpe was accused of telling Liberal Senator Hollie Hughes “at least I keep my legs shut” during a parliamentary session.

Seems like the bikie slut couldn’t even manage that!

lswchp

I’ll say it again.

It’s very likely that Thorpe was targeted by an organised crime group for intelligence collection and further compromise. She rejected the advice of her staff about the matter, who described it as being catastrophically harmful, because it was. Any suggestion that it’s just a bit of poorly judged bonking is ridiculous.

This shit is as serious as shit gets, and all the 3 and 4 letter outfits will be all over this to try to determine what sources and methods have been compromised. I used to have a security clearance, and if I’d done something like this it would’ve meant jail time.

She’s a politician nd indigenous so will probably avoid that, but its the end of her political career.

Peachy

Ok, I will listen to the voice of experience & consider myself schooled!

The intelligence services consider organised crime gangs to be threats to national security just as much as foreign intelligence services. This is equivalent to her having an undisclosed relationship with a foreign intelligence officer.
Like I said, a prison offence for mortals, but probably not her.

Every piece of information related to OMCG that she had access to as part of her official duties would be potentially compromised.

bjw678

I will also add having worked for NSW Police many years ago that this may be true in a military context but is not relevant in a police context. Nothing beyond standard privacy concerns in for any of the policing data.

lswchp

No. As a member of a senate committee studying organised crime she would’ve been exposed to commonwealth classified information. Government agencies other than Defence (eg the AFP) all have classified information.

What I wrote applies to civilians just as much as defence personnel, although politicians are in a special category of their own.

But like I said elsewhere, she will almost certainly skate because she’s indigenous and a politician.

bjw678

What I wrote applies to civilians just as much as defence personnel, 

But is irrelevant to law enforcement.
Have you worked in law enforcement?
You’ll also notice I said a military context, not defence personnel.

They would be elected, and they would have access to classified information as required. Politicians are in their own special category.

bjw678

Bingo, which makes your whole rant pointless.
It’s a problem for the political parties and the electorate to resolve.

lswchp

You have no idea what you’re talking about.

bjw678

If you say so, but as you clearly worked out for yourself in the above comments, for representative democracy to work as described politicians need to be given special consideration and not treated the same as everyone else in various ways. They take this and self interest to then give themselves extra consideration they don’t require but that doesn’t negate the point.
Whether the system as described is inherently broken is another point well and truly open for debate.
But ultimately the only way a politician gets removed from parliament is by resigning or for not meeting very few strict requirements, not just because they did some bad shit. You only get to kick em out every election.

bjw678

And just to further clarify how little you also seem to know about what you are talking about, you wouldn’t go to jail for fucking a bikie, or a foreign agent.
You would lose your clearance most likely though.
To go to jail you would have to be taken to court and proven that you had shared classified material with them or someone else.

The “FEAR” is back:

https://twitter.com/i/events/1582764882247577601

Get ready for the FEAR to return in regards to a new “Nightmare COVID Variant” that beats our immunity:

https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-nightmare-xbb-covid-variant-that-beats-our-immunity-is-finally-here?source=articles&via=twitter_page

The article describes a new ‘highly infectious’ variant of COVID (zero information about how harmful it is in typical fear mode wording:

A highly mutated descendant of the Omicron variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that drove a record wave of infections starting around a year ago, XBB is in many ways the worst form of the virus so far.

Before getting around to the main point of the article, propagandize the acceptance of BI-ANNUAL vaccinations!!

But one booster a year might not be enough if, as some epidemiologists fear, natural antibodies fade faster and the novel-coronavirus mutates at an accelerating rate. One concern, if it turns out we need twice-a-year new boosters, is whether industry can develop fresh jabs fast enough and health agencies can swiftly approve them.

Just in time for the US mid-term elections!

Medvedev had some fun stuff to say about the EU leadership:

About Ursula and Olof

Aunt Ursula von der Leyen somehow bought 4.6 (!) Billion doses of COVID-19 vaccine from the Pfizer pharmaceutical corporation for 71 (!) Billion euros from the Pfizer pharmaceutical corporation. That’s ten doses of vaccines for every EU citizen. The scale is breathtaking. Well, okay. After all, she is a gynecologist, and the head of some kind of European Commission, and now she is a representative of Big Pharma. A bright brave woman. Nothing is afraid.

Europeans are at a loss to guess how much of this astronomical amount of Eurobubbles two smart people got: a gynecologist – the prime minister of the European Union, along with her husband (who, by coincidence, works in a pharmaceutical company)?

Such a business of Dr. Ursula, it seems, will not be taken out even by European deputies who are tolerant in different places. Although she deserves more – an award from the grateful inhabitants of Europe.

If the Nobel Prize in Economics for the fastest collapse of national finances deserves the frantic Truss, then the contender for the Nobel in Medicine for the quality cut of money for vaccines is Ursula von der Leyen.

And more about the current level of European politicians.

Now the German Scholz, following his girlfriend in the government, Burbock, has embarked on the dirty road of accusing our country of using hunger and energy in the course of the conflict.

Certainly not the German chancellor to talk about it. Let him better remember the period of Nazism in his state and about 30 million citizens of our country who died from war, hunger and cold.

I believe quiet quitting is a thing since WFH. People doing the absolute minimum knowing it is too hard to get sacked, and easy to find another job.

theres no jobs if u have no exp or arent a migrant hired by your dodgy co-ethnik mates or are working slave labor wages

dont believe all the bullshit about employers DESPERATE for workers – they aint

they will throw your resume in the trash if you don’t have fifty years of relevant exp for the job role

think about how busted commercial rents are in aus, and how artifically high wages are due to the artificially high cost of living and labor laws

now stack on some of the most absurd labor protection laws in existence, and you have the most unemployed person unfriendly country in existence. employers will filter all candidates here through the most strict vetting processes possible bc the risks of hiring a dud are just too great

im not sure theres any country in the world where its harder to find a job than australia – maybe new zealand?

Gruppenführer Mark

now stack on some of the most absurd labor protection laws in existence, and you have the most unemployed person unfriendly country in existence

That there is the reason employee vetting is so hard. If I, as an employer (or a manager) knew that if someone didn’t work out (on reasonable grounds, of course), I could afford to risk hiring go-getters with little experience.

i agree mark, employment in australia is like an exclusive country club with great amenities – great if you’re in the club but as a non-member good luck actually getting invited in.

bjw678

Employing people on short term contracts is a thing…
and you can extend or transfer to full time if they work out.
At my first job, there were a dozen or more people on 6 month contracts who had been there for 5 or even 10 years.

bjw678

dont believe all the bullshit about employers DESPERATE for workers – they aint

It depends on the job and the required skill levels and qualifications.
Anything that can be done by migrants, then they aren’t. Something requiring actual local qualifications like the trades and you can just about name your price and walk into a job tomorrow if you want to.
Anyone wanting skilled workers is also having problems.
Outside sydney hospitality seems to be struggling to attract workers as well, no idea what they are willing to pay though.
In a country town they probably aren’t, that’s why people have been moving to the city for half a century.

There seems to be a growing media narrative that RBA won’t and don’t need to support the AUD. I have previously stated that I believe they will not let AUD go much below 63 for an extended period of time. We are about to find out.

I notice money markets predicting 4.2% again albeit over a slightly longer horizon.

Peachy

There seems to be a growing media narrative that RBA won’t and don’t need to support the AUD. I have previously stated that I believe they will not let AUD go much below 63 for an extended period of time. We are about to find out.

one possible route out is to:

  • levitate houses for a bit longer
  • Let the fx rate drop (make soothing noises about international competitiveness, etc)
  • attract the juicy foreign bid for local houses (on strength of the earlier levitation) which are now relatively cheap for foreigners (on low AUD) to get houses boiling again

it’s a narrow path to tread, but I do think it’s possible.

net effect is to sell off EZFKA houses out from under the next generation to fund another decade of easy lifestyle and low interest rates for current generation. It’s how we roll. It gets votes.

Sickening stuff

Freddy

I recall that many businesses were hurting from low AUD during GFC. Imported inflation, debt denominated in USD, etc. RBA destroyed our exporting competitiveness with a higher AUD, I doubt they will destroy another chunk of the economy by shifting us back to a low AUD.

We are more likely to get other policies to support house prices. Reduced mortgage buffers, IO loans making a comeback, govt shared equity scheme expanded as a way of restructuring distressed mortgages.

The90kwbeast

Dont forget stage 3 income tax cuts could/should be brought forward! I view those tax cuts as entirely being needed to support house prices via increasing disposable income, thus improving serviceability metrics

Freddy

Stage 3 tax cuts would further raise inflation and punish lower paid workers who don’t get any cuts. I suspect it will be an election loser before Labor get a chance to implement it.

Aussie Soy Boy

It’s the problem living in a country with an elected government no politician is going to advocate increasing taxes and increasing interest rates to get inflation under control.

I am noticing less supply chain issues now, fruit and veg seems cheaper, fuel up but that’s a function of the dollar too, plus I remember fuel around 2005 getting to $1.40 or $1.50. Wages must be up 50% minimum since then.

Freddy

 no politician is going to advocate increasing taxes and increasing interest rates

It is even worse than that. This is the second time recently (KRudd07 the other) where significant tax cuts have been taken to the election during an inflationary period. These ones being promised by Albo are bordering on negligence given the current levels of inflation and govt debt. But as I said it will become an election loser before he gets a chance to implement. UK govt just got a reminder of what happens when you take the piss with tax cuts at the wrong time.

The other part of that is interest rates. Phil Lowe has for several years been pleading with the govt for fiscal stimulus so that we don’t end up with ZIRP. For several years the govt has ignored him. This effectively makes the government responsible for interest rate policy with RBA being blamed for the outcomes. The whole thing is ridiculous.

Coming

so, you want more government surplus
so that interest rates to go down
so that people can borrow more to bid up house prices?

You really think that is the best policy?

Peachy

so, you want more government surplus

so that interest rates to go down

so that people can borrow more to bid up house prices?

You really think that is the best policy?

coming is largely right. Dirt cheap interest rates are a very significant market failure which then infects countless other markets and economic decisions (including unbridled consumption)

freddy is right too – for years RBA has lowered interest rates in a way that might be described as broadly consistent with its responsibilities, viewed in isolation…although completely reckless when viewed together with fiscal policy & other aspects of the economy (asset prices, including housing). That’s the obverse.

now, perhaps we will see the reverse side – rba will be raising rates in a way consistent with its responsibilities, when viewed in isolation… but full of extra ouchie when viewed together with fiscal policy, etc.

swings and roundabouts thingie?

Freddy

The opposite. Maybe I haven’t been clear enough. The RBA have been warning for years about the consequences of ZIRP, and that government should be relying more on fiscal stimulus rather than monetary stimulus.

In the years pre-covid, Lowe begged for fiscal spending (deficit not surplus) so that rates don’t go down further. Before that, Glenn Stevens warned that pension funds would collapse if governments continually relied on monetary stimulus forcing RBA to drive rates to zero.

This is all government policy with the RBA getting blamed for the consequences.

Freddy

There is a more general comment to make. I think most people understand the neoliberal model of getting government departments to operate as a profit centre resulting in unintended consequences like the Police raising revenue instead of fighting crime. This applies across the board. Government departments that seem to be independent are actually beholden to the government. Some examples:
1) RBA already mentioned. They follow a specific mandate, and are a passenger to fiscal policy.
2) ATO were at one stage about to investigate thousands of illegal foreign purchases of property. Scomo put an end to it by cutting their budget as punishment.
3) Treasury department have copped a lot of grief over incorporating immigration numbers into their economic planning. They have released documents warning that these government policies would reduce quality of life for existing residents, and that government should consider other measures instead of relying on immigration.
4) ASIC currently copping grief from dopey John Adams. They too are being controlled by a budget, and they too are not allowed to do their job: https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2020/nov/19/frydenberg-declares-war-on-corporate-regulator-in-a-bid-to-reduce-powers

The entire system is rigged. There is no independence.

No shit sherlock. You are always beholden to whoever is paying you, if you want to get paid.

I think it is the plan and likely will work along with all sorts of shitfckry in policy and regulation all aimed at supporting house prices.

Its all about managing an economy right?, and houses are the economy.

EZFKA

On a brighter note at least for me, seems i have a reasonable landlord who only raised the rent by a $20 a week and could have raised it $80 a week if they wanted to test the waters. I guess they preferred to have a professional middle aged family with kids than 6 jimmies.

Stewie

The difference in term structure of lending, re fixed vs variable, in Aust and the US means the US needs to apply the breaks a lot harder to slow their economy, since so many people have already locked in their mortgages (apart from variable subprime).

Australia has far less capacity – the release valve is the Australian dollar. The AUD could fall far further than people expect if CPI remains high and US continues raising rates.

They’re trying to slow their economy and it is going to strangle the rest of the world.

A fly in your ointment

as I read the titles of the news on the data breach at ObTuse and MediLoanshark, the first tinfoil hat arsessment that all this was related to the the digital ID and the fecal matter that stems from it but then it somehow did not resonate well with all the aspects for the joint criminal enterprise needed to work.

Never attribute to conspiracy that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

the whole 1000 points I’d check where every shitty business gets your details beyond the functionality needs – makes the highly private data readily available behind the wonky protection wall and this gets to be particularly exaggerated with digital registration galore trends. My local coffee shop wants my dob and the address to register for buy 5 get one free coffee. What security can they employ… it’s a fkn coffee shop yet they demand the data. “stamps and punches on a loyalty card became obsolete as people can fake them” they say. Yep, black market is swarmed with loyalty cards stamped 4 times so that the next time you get a free coffee…
Like the ofendedness on internet, this relies on people’s willingness to participate and such participation in online sensitive data sharing is high in ezfka, supported by the big brother gov that pushes for this so they can see all your moves…

I begun putting wrong dob and close but fake address where this data is requested purely by a business’ vanity point, about a year ago… also… Got a call from someone on an unknown to me but displayed mobile number stating he’s from telco and need me to confirm my sensitive data to identify myself before we can continue… I said how can he confirm he’s from telco and the idiotic pause followed by the response “but I am from telco…” to which I replied and I am from Jupiter… lone broke. He was indeed from telco. But the next caller may not be…

Ramjet

Black market for coffee loyalty cards… how much would one card be worth? Only a couple of bucks I reckon.

Hopefully these data breaches will mean a push back on the digital agenda.

Xi has consolidated so much power that the elders have no sway anymore (they used to, no longer).

My take is that the poor guy (Hu) is old and apparently a bit sick so couldn’t handle it. Very unlikely there is going to be some sort of “execution”.

But the question is why they wanted that public humiliation. What I read was that the apparatchiks told Hu to sit out because of his health, but Hu wanted to turn up. But who the hell knows.

anyway, the news is out now, even Xi’s second, who completely screwed up the Shanghai lockdowns, will be second-in-command (Premier), and a couple of the military/defense people will subvert the “mandatory” retirement age along with Xi.

Scary times is all I can say.

How fucking pissed off would you be to have to pay a BBC TV tax and have the current iteration of globalist mind virus of lgbT as an “Aspirational Lifestyle” beamed into your living room?

Honestly, WTF are these people doing – they’re laughing at narcissistic, mentally ill fuckwits. This just like going on tour to the asylum and laughing at the crazies – only they’re now put on a pedestals!

Extreme tolerance ISN’T Godly, it is honestly the work of the devil, in that it works against the interests of society as a whole, being majority interests – not every interest.

the shitfuckery hiding in plain sight

“At night we can hear them screaming, but we’re not allowed to do anything about it,” the Marine’s father, Gregory Buckley Sr., recalled his son telling him before he was shot to death at the base in 2012. He urged his son to tell his superiors. “My son said that his officers told him to look the other way because it’s their culture.”

and….

The Taliban vowed to ban Bacha Bazi and this resonated with many poor Afghans. So, when the Americans withdrew, the Taliban swept across the country as local support for the government that tolerated Bacha Bazi faded away.

So WTF were we doing in Afghanistan for 20 years?
The evil of the Taliban was so great that we tolerated widescale child rape for 20 years?
The ends justify the means??
What ends? We bailed.

I really don’t understand why you have a problem with this

This is the good kind of tranny – the freakshow who makes a mockery of himself/herself for the sake of salacious entertainment
This is the kind that has always existed, and provides amusement as well maybe some sexual excitement for adults

The bad kind of tranny that we don’t want is letting them become school teachers, or generals in the army, or having parents encourage their kids to become one

Basically, acting like they are normal

Whelan and Maitre look at the experience of Irish households and find that just over one-third of their vulnerable cluster is drawn from the poor, while two-thirds are drawn from the non-poor. They conclude that “poverty and economic vulnerability are obviously related but are still distinct.”

get wireless broadband to replace your nbn and then you will have to spend several days trying to make it work with fake feelening of achievement.
in the end you will give up in disgust but your days will not be boring. 700ms latency at times, the best is 35ms and speed is dependent on reptilian brainwaves spanning from 0.6kbps (dial up modems) to 25kbps… on no particular cause. And if it rains…. LOL, it cannot achieve 2kbps
Someone should go to Davo Llewdo-Smirk and flog him with an wireless broadband modem (figuratively speaking). I am going back to nbn next year when I return from my expensive o/s travel.
disclaimer: perhaps my fresh experience of the above is because I am suburban and do not have visual to the tower. This means 50-75% of putas are in similar situation

I subscribe to an an online guitar teaching website, and haven’t heard from the instructor for a month or so.

Today I received an email where he describes rushing to hospital last month because his left arm turned purple and started to swell painfully.

Turns out he had suffered a blood clot, and it could have caused death or seriously injury had it not been treated quickly.

Doctors are of course mystified as to what could have caused it.

most people cant stand the thought of not being with someone, so they will be with literally anyone. go outside and look at the kinds of couples you see walking around, mutants with other mutants. its unreal how there can truly be “love” in these kinds of relationships but apparently there is. people are slobs.

i’d argue that incels can’t stand the thought of their own “level”

so they refuse to accept what the sexual marketplace assigns them as their market value
