    We missed 240,000 migrants.

    Muslims are well integrated into our society. From keeping the corner store alive to creating our national dish. I don't think they will be burning us at the stake for prescribing penicillin (as the Christians once did) any time soon.

    UK Army recruiting poor teenagers

    The best soldiers I have met and worked with were from poor, under privileged back grounds.. Never met a good posh soldier.

    Is cryptozoology a legitimate science?

    The church *was* science at one time and in fact, the Vatican still to this day has its Pontifical Academy of Sciences, as well as it's own Observatory Vatican Obseratory HomePage link but you have drifted from the point. Many scientists are involved with the search for earth twins in other parts of our galaxy, further, SETI is trying very hard to bring in signals from extra terrestrial sources that would be deemed "intelligent", also for purposes of establishing ETs. I don't know why investigations to see if UFOs are transport of ETs would not be considered scientific pursuit. But again, you digress.

    Vaping is not good for vascular function

    Alcohol prohibition was a conspiracy by big oil to shift the public away from ethanol. They didn't want people to be able to create their own fuel at home. It was all based on a a big lie, created by big business, just like Marijuana prohibition. I know that's not part of the e-cig topic here but it's knowledge worth spreading

    If you're going to paint all Muslims with the same broad brush, you should get on with apologising for the crusades and your burning protestants/catholics. I also invite you to visit a Christian nation for comparison. Wait... There aren't any are there? Because a Christian state was also so bad we overthrew it time and again.
  7. The way I see it, there is no "Mystery of the Pointy Skulls." So, what's to solve? Harte
  8. Are there any confirmed reports of sturgeon in the loch? I know they’re pretty widespread including across the UK. Maybe it’ll turn into a Nessie fishing competition... I definitely want to travel and catch a sturgeon one day!

    How is that even debatable? One needs only look at the list of ingredients for both to see how much worse cigs are. Of course e-cigs are a healthier alternative but so is breathing camp fire smoke. There isn't much worse out there for your body than cigarettes.

    Shooting journalists over a cartoon? Women's rights, homosexual rights, intolerance of other faiths, barbaric practices of animal slaughter, female genital mutilation (granted, Christians practice circumcision,) belief in a global Caliphate, slavery, Sharia law, "no-go" zones, strong classism (Muslims and non-Muslims), following a warlord's guide to conquest (aka the Quran), etc. If you can't see the difference between Christianity and Islam, I invite you to visit a Muslim nation and test the limits of tolerance. You'll find the difference between the two religions to be very apparent. Given the choice, I will take Christian rule 10 times out of 10. Don't swallow Saudi Arabia's propaganda - they outspend almost every Federal agency in the world funding it.

    Russia probes II -- The Mueller Report

    Denmark is losing money by the (whatever the Danish word is for bucketloads) administrating Greenland. The US might buy it and establish it as an independent country. Harte

    UK Army recruiting poor teenagers

    So it would appear the new army advertising campaign is working then. You know, the one where they're looking for kids that play video games all day and have OCD about shopping trolleys.

    We tried prohibition of alcohol and it solved nonething, only caused problems. That's why it's legal.

    Vaping is not good for vascular function

    Vaping has urgent funding for studies behind it because of its increased popularity, mostly among younger people, partly caused by the claim that is a much healthier alternative to cigs. So studies are needed to determine if that is even true.

    You've got to admire David Bowie.
    He has released at least 30 CD's and DVD's since his death.

    What a pro!

      I'm glad that Dave named himself after the Bowie Knife.
      David Smith&Wesson doesn't sound right!

      BTW..... Lester Bowie played on David's 1993 album 'Black Tie White Noise'.

    Russia probes II -- The Mueller Report

    Yes. Pointing out the anti-Semitism rampant in the Democratic party will win him votes. Or, at least, cause votes to be lost by the other side. People that didn't vote in the last election. Motivating voters, that's what it is - although I'm sure he didn't do it for that reason. Harte

    Are cigarette sales dropping? What is the motive behind funding all these e-smoke "studies" that are suddenly coming out of the woodwork? Yeah, inhaling anything but clean air isn't healthy - common sense tells us that. Breathing in brake dust and car exhaust while waiting at a red light is worse than just about anything as brake dust is a known carcinogen yet I don't see a huge rush to recall brake pads for safer versions. These e-cig studies reek of industry bias, IMO.

    That was very moving.
  20. "The army is recruiting poor teenagers in its most dangerous roles because it cannot find adults to fill vacancies, a campaign group warned last night. "Almost 30 per cent of last year's new recruits were aged 16 or 17, the most in any year since the financial year ending 2011." Full report at the Daily Mail: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7381649/Army-bosses-recruiting-poor-teenagers-dangerous-roles-lack-adults-signing-up.html "Data compiled by the Child Rights International Network (CRIN) shows that the army recruited 1,000 16-year-olds and 820 17-year-olds last year, with the youngsters more likely to come from poorer areas. "The UK is the only country in Europe which routinely recruits people aged under 18, and Charlotte Cooper, campaigns coordinator with CRIN, told The Guardian: “The army is leaning on teenagers from the most deprived backgrounds to fix its recruitment crisis, using them to fill the riskiest roles because it can’t persuade enough adults to enlist.”" Full report at the UK Telegraph: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/08/21/british-army-accused-leaning-under-18s-order-plug-recruitment/

    Should all British police officers be armed?

    Yeah that's a dumb rule for Police to have to follow. If you can effectively stop a threat, why wait until the bullets are flying at you? The first shot may be the last one you won't ever hear.

    Should all British police officers be armed?

    It seems unarmed Officers are almost a point of pride among the tea-drinking islanders. As in, it's worth being proud that your country is so peaceful it's unnecessary to arm the Cops. However, this isn't 2005. This is 2019 and the demographics of the UK are changing rapidly. There are a thousand videos out there of UK Police being gang beaten, having cars stolen, or the worst ones involve 110 lb female Officers getting pummeled while the partner helplessly screams in to his or her radio. "Officers assaulted during routine traffic stop" "Two female officers attacked by crazed man" "Police Officer attacked with sledge hammer in Glossop" There is plenty of footage of American Police being overrun or beaten but even then, there is only so much damage the attackers are willing to do at risk of their own lives. For Police in England, what is the "plan B" for a gang of youths who know you don't carry any lethal force? I hope the governing bodies take the advice of the Officers on the ground when it comes to carrying firearms. Nothing worse than your fate being decided by fat bureaucrats who likely will never step foot in the neighborhoods you have to patrol.

  24. For the most part from what I understand is that it denotes status and in some parts of S.America it identified ststus and location as the type of headbinding varied from region to region. For Attila the children of conquered elite who swore alliegence had their heads bound so as to show their status to him. I am on my phone now but will look in my fplders for links when I get to the computer. jmccr8
  25. I think that effect is caused by the long exposure time of the single frames. The nearer the craft comes, the bigger and brighter it appear and more light get captured by the cam, per frame.
