It isn't an election when 1,500 unelected representatives are deciding the vote.

A sick fantasy. If he really did it he would have to stay in a bunker for the rest of his days, if a week. And his army? They will have to come out of their bunkers to continue fighting if any are left to fight. Of course they will be irradiated.

Most applicants will already be working with temporary visas. Otherwise the language proficiency would be difficult but not impossible. https://www.ssw.go.jp/en/about/sswv/

Maybe she thought she could make her mother disappear in UK by creating a travel record. If she was on the run it wouldn't make sense to be using the victim's passport.

It wouldn't likely hit a specific target, not without doing the math and having accurate measurements of when and where the target would be. 54 year old behaving like a college idiot? Maybe. Or maybe attempted murder.

Every time I red the number I have to ask "Is that good or bad?" It looks like Japan has done a very good job of handling the pandemic. Congratulations on keeping the numbers down.

China's money is welcome in the Middle East, big surprise. The CCP still are ethnic cleansing Uighurs at home. They would do it in the Middle East, too. Sorry about the uprising in the Solomon Islands, but maybe they need to address the fact that the PRC is the problem, not the solution.

A "Get Rich Quick" convention Miami. Crypto has too many criminals using it for me to get involved. There are lots of wealthy people, sure, and they don't mind the risk when someone else gets hurt.

Posted in: Putin going to G20 in Bali summit 'a step too far': Australian PM See in context

I agree with ClippetyClop. The G20 is for the top 20 economic leaders to meet. The ruble is worth less than $0.01 because of sanctions, down from 84 rubles to the dollar. Whatever the criteria is to be in the top 20, Putin is quickly pushing Russia the other direction.

If Sri Lanka is unsafe for her to return, then should not Sri Lanka have to pay for her expenses until Sri Lanka is safe for her to return home?  It is sad that the immigration officials failed, but so did Sri Lanka and the government of Sri Lanka should have to pay their share.

Posted in: Japan considering sanctions on Belarus over its support for Russian invasion of Ukraine See in context

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Lukashenko stated that concerns about the pandemic were a "frenzy and a psychosis" and that working the tractors, drinking vodka and going to saunas could prevent people from infection from the virus. "People are working in tractors. No one is talking about the virus", Lukashenko said on 16 March 2020. "There, the tractor will heal everyone. The fields heal everyone". He also said: "I don’t drink, but recently I’ve been saying that people should not only wash their hands with vodka, but also poison the virus with it. You should drink the equivalent of 40–50 milliliters of rectified spirit daily", but he advised against doing so while at work.[166][167] By early May, Belarus was reported to have 15,000 diagnosed cases, one of the highest per capita rates of infection in Eastern Europe.[168]

Posted in: Australian lawmakers call for inquiry into Murdoch media See in context

Fox News clips are regularly featured on Russian State television programs. Murdoch may not be a Russian agent, but his divisive programming is useful for the GRU to attack western democracy. Vaccinations (Fox preaches are bad for you), guns (Fox preaches are good for you), race (Fox preaches White grievance)… the list goes on and on. Murdoch is there to stoke the fires just as though he were working hand in hand with Russian military intelligence agencies. And it is not hyperbole to say that Fox News clips are regularly featured on Russian State television.

Someone hasn't figured out how to 'bypass' (hack) them, by say folding space or something along those lines

If we want to go sci-fi, I like the idea of future humans using advanced technology to view the past. While not exactly time travel, such a device might be noticed at the other end, too.

Regarding the inventor of the military patent posted above, "His patent applications on behalf of his employers have attracted international attention for their potential military and energy-producing applications, but also doubt about their feasibility[citation needed], and speculation that they may be misinformation intended to mislead the United States' adversaries.

Extreme temperature are perfect conditions for optical illusions. Mirages in the desert are well known. Lesser known are cold temperature ones, like was recently captured in a photo showing an entire ship that appeared to be floating high in the air off the coast of Britain. Well guess what? The air temperature outside the jet aircraft is extremely cold, too.

23 years old. That is so young to throw away a career in law enforcement. Good luck finding anything else.

Posted in: UK reports zero daily COVID deaths for the first time since July See in context

They are still seeing a large number of infections. The vaccine is preventing deaths and hospitalizations. I didn't hesitate to get it, but I have to admit that my arm was more sore than I expected after the second jab, and I may have had a fever. A day of that is better than paying for a hospital stay.,

Posted in: Japan's vaccine push ahead of Olympics looks to be too late See in context

My local health department did not communicate very well with us here in the States, but people were able to figure it out through word of mouth. Or in my case, I e-mailed and telephoned with live people because the automated system was a mess.

Get aggressive about it. They are supposed to have the vaccine waiting for you, but they really do not care. You have to fight for it.
