    UK PM branded a "known liar" by TV News Boss

    It also leads to dictatorships...Africa, Russia, China. Perhaps we'll find this out if Corbyn ever gets into power.

    Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor solution?

    Baseless speculation has no place in archaeology, especially where excavations are concerned. That's how we end up with idiots using dynamite to dig holes. cormac
  5. The we will speculate. No worries.

    Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor solution?

    To do a proper job it would take exacting work to disassemble even a portion of the tomb and there is no way to know what state the inside is in or how long such a detailed excavation would take. It's certainly possible that even if an excavation started today it wouldn't answer any questions within your lifetime. Or would you prefer the Howard Vyse method of excavation, throw dynamite at it until you find what you're looking for and damn the consequences? cormac

    What is there that's democratic about having a leader, with all the authority that that implies, imposed merely by the arcane internal processes of the ruling party? That may be, as Roofgardener unfailingly points out, the way that it is, but it's an archaic feudal system that any country that complacently accepts it has no right to patronize any other country about "democracy".
  8. We don't know that unless they open the tomb. Until then all we can do is speculate.

    Iran has seized a British oil tanker

    Except it seems that the explosion was caused by a fire. The Iraqi government is doing an investigation but so far they havent said anything to counter the fire explanation yet. "A police source said the fire was probably caused by negligence leading to poor storage conditions and high temperatures. The Interior Ministry ordered an investigation." https://www.google.com/amp/s/mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKCN1V21UV But once again why bother to do research when you can just assume you are right and know what you are talking about cause it props up your own opinions better.

    Actually no, it's NOT. Just because the Tarim Basin falls within modern China's border doesn't make that a "Chinese" mummy. At best it makes it a Central/Southwestern Asian mummy. If the body is nothing but bones then there wouldn't be much to compare and if the bones are severely degraded, which is possible, then there is NO WAY to compare the two with a picture. cormac

    As far as im aware, in this country you vote for political parties not leaders, voting for individual leaders is something they do in third world countries of Africa, and it doesn't usually work out well, I can't remember this question being asked so often when May took over from Cameron, or when Broon took over from Blair, but then it now suits the political class that oppose brexit to kick up a fuss now.
  12. Riiight. It is too complex for us modern folk to figure out. We ain't smart enough today to handle such ancient structures(sarcasm)

    The problem is that after 2000+ years there is no way to tell just 'what' exists in his tomb and how much it would be affected by excavation and subsequent possible deterioration of artifacts by exposure to the modern atmosphere. It's MASSIVE and cost prohibitive to cover the entire layout and even then it's not a guarantee that anything is left of his corpse but bones and even those may be in terrible shape. No one is willing to excavate just to satisfy YOUR curiousity, nor should they. cormac

    Well lets see.....before the brexit referendum all the leaders of the main political parties promised to honour the result of the public vote. 3 years down the line none of them have and indeed are doing their utmost to renague on the result, except Boris. This tells me that he is more trustworthy than all of them.

    Does democracy also include the right to choose one's leader? in which case, where do you put the process that allows the ruling party to choose the Prime Minister without the people having any say in it ?
  18. Of course it is not my thread, duh.
  19. This is a picture of an ancient Chinese Mummy. Could we compare that image to one of the body buried in the tomb of Qin if they opened that tomb??

    Can you leave baseless opinions pretending to be what is "likely" concerning Qin Shi Huang out of the thread. The fact is that you don't know what is likely, you didn't even know enough to understand what constituted China back then. BTW, it apparently should be pointed out that this is NOT your thread. cormac
  21. The notion is getting a current image of any possible body buried in the tomb of Qin.
  22. Fact- Caucasian mummies have been found in China Fact - The current Chinese government hides historical events Opinion - The current Chinese government will not allow the tomb of Qin because they are concerned the contents would not conform to their view of History. *many disagree with my opinion

    How is anyone supposed to believe you would know anything from pictures, you've already mangled understanding DNA? And you apparently didn't know what constituted China in the 3rd century BC. cormac
  24. You changed the focus off of the topic of this thread. Simple as that.

    Obama judge :WI to pay for reassignment surg

    I guess im coming at it from the perspective that medicaid is a temporary stop gap safety net to help folks get on their feet after an event of some sort. From that perspective such a surgery can be placed on hold for a year or two with medicaid still offering psychological services in the interim, IMO. Your argument would hold for the permanently disabled however.
  26. Hey you are all over the place, hard for us simpletons to keep up. Can you keep to the subject matter specific to this thread and leave the irrelvant suppositions such as 'pictures of my great grand parents' out of it?
