  1. Before you will start virtue signaling, stop outsourcing pollution intensive jobs and stop buying services/products and components from pollution creating countries like China and India. Shut down air traffic over Germany as well If you will do that, then I'll believe that you are taking care of green issues seriously, instead if virtue signaling for feel good points, while still contributing indirectly by increased consumption of high energy footprint products and services.

  2. As long as Germany (and Germans) do business with China, they are in no position whatsoever to lecture anyone else on the subjects of human rights and environment issues, being a knowing accomplice to the violation of both. Claiming otherwise is hypocrisy. At least I know the Australian federal government is a bunch of no good cretins owned mostly by the mineral and fossil fuel industry and they've made no secret of wanting to promote coal and it's like at the expense of renewable energy projects (and runs de facto concentration camps on remote islands to process "asylum seekers", althoug

  3. Did I mention that I think the world would be better off without Facebook? apparently the European Supreme Court does too https://www.aljazeera.com/economy/2021/5/14/facebook-faces-devastating-data-transfer-ban-after-irish-ruling Facebooks claim that privacy protection violates free speech because it makes targeted advertising harder or some such was dismissed by court and transmission of personal information of European users to the US had to end very soon (because nobody trusts the US to respect European data privacy laws)

  5. Peace in the middle east died in 1995 with the murder of Rabin by a right wing extremist and the (deliberate) efforts to sabotage the Oslo Accord in the years immediately after. Too much conservative resistance to the idea of peace and an independent Palestinian state in the late 90's. Edit: The conservatives were probably scared of what happened in the worlds only other apartheid state, South Africa, where it came to an end in 1991 and real, democratic elections happened in 1994. You can almost hear them thinking "Not on my watch!" in the Knesset and so the deal on offer got made

  6. Too bad the Palestinians walked away from a peace deal in 2000. That would have solidified the borders and perhaps prevented situations like this. It only demonstrates that peace is not currently possible there and we're just wasting our time on such efforts.

  9. @Ben No.4 To be honest, it's been a while since any topic of high speed rail popped up on any serious level of decision making discussion. There is a lot to take on, as tracks in different countries of EU are often incompatibile and to build a high speed rail infrastructure, which could compete with conveniece of air traffic, that would take trillions of EUR. Although if any money printing could be excused, this type of a project would be one to get a pass from me. The infrastructure could also revitilize economcially some smaller hubs along the rail path, something, which air traff

  10. Just found four (!!!) feathers near the bird bath Some where hardly reachable up in the hedge or on branches. Haven't seen the Crow because I was hunting spiders in the hedge so i don't know if it just sit there and dropped some. Good luck!

  11. Just watched the first episode of season 4. Looks like Trevor is bad influence on everyone he meets. What's the point of hiring Malcolm McDowell to voice a British vampire when he does his best to not sound like it at all? I mean, sure, we're talking 15th century London, but still, how about you go and fulfill the stereoypes I expect of you, hmm? Hmmm? Hmmmmmmm? I expected more of you, Admiral Tolwyn. Anyway, off to a good start here. Except:

  12. A few things to consider here. 1. “Virtue signalling” is literally all the constitutional court can do (which basically is what pmp10 already said) as it lacks any enforcement mechanism and therefore has to rely on the wilful cooperation of all other actors. That being said, the German constitutional court enjoys a great deal of trust in Germany, in fact more so than parliament or government (sadly only in German: https://www.lto.de/recht/hintergruende/h/bverfg-ethik-kodex-vertrauen-bevoelkerung-erhalten-politik-wirtschaft-einfluss/), so it’s decisions hold weight. It is also worth nothin

  13. I remember that assassination and how terrible it was and how unusual for Jews to kill other Jews. I also think that was the closest the Israelis and Palestinians came to peace through a two state solution which I still support In Israel they really do believe that even a single Jewish life matters normally. The Israelis released over 1000 Palestinian prisoners for 1 Israeli soldier in 2011. I would never have agreed to that if I was in a government because the potential future risk to my country with releasing over 1000 potential combatants is not worth a single life but I am not Is

  17. Our dub used a female voice actor too. Seems like a common mistake* to make, good to know I'm not alone. Couldn't have told Zirconia from any old guy in the sub, but that's okay. I sometimes really suck at this. To be honest, that's one of the changes I can get behind. Fashion is so gaaaaaaaaay you guys is one of the stereotypes Sailor Moon could have done without. Still ridiculous because those brothers sure like each other a lot, but in general... Watched some more Cardcaptor Sakura. Sakura has a way out of this crush on Yukito in the form of Shaoran (who is also really

  18. For an entirely different, but hugely important topic: climate change. The German constitutional court ruled in what can only be described as a landmark decision that the hitherto efforts of the German legislative to combat climate change were insufficient and ordered the parliament to draft newer, more far reaching laws. This decision mainly rests on two legal considerations. Firstly, Article 20a of the German constitution (the “Basic Law”) states that the protection of the natural environment is a core aim of the state. Secondly, the court views more drastic measures as a necessity to protec

  22. Way back in the day I played a game called Sentinel Worlds 1: Future Magic. Here are some of the available portraits: They didn't even try to change Sigourney Weaver and Arnold Schwarzenegger. As an aside, this may be my finest thread derailing ever. I regret nothing!

  23. THE THUNDERCAT 2.0 Class: Lifegiver / Blood Mage Concept: Fast, sturdy and fun Caster/Melee hybrid that relies upon strong synergies between classes to keep spiritshift, buffs and healing up forever, unleashing devastating combos of CC/Damage spells before optionally finishing up foes with claws. Optimized for a No-Rest run. Game Version: RTwP. Works with latest updates and DLCs as of v5.0.00040. I recommend the Full Community Patch and the No Forced Rests mod (otherwise just metagame around them, it’s fully viable but just a bit annoying). Upscaled PotD Solo Viable:

  24. I think adding a Black Widow would be epic as the ultimate baddie, but only in a super reclusive area like under the porch. I really think that they should implement the Subnautica game mechanic where your water and hunger levels don't drop while you are sitting on a piece of furniture (maybe they already did that? - I haven't built any furniture yet to test it).

  25. Great rundown. I've played BG1&2, PS:T and the other IE games a lot, although admittedly mostly about 15-20 years ago, but I find it hard to get my head around some of the things in PoE. The mechanics don't seem to stick in my head that well for some reason. One thing I'm not sure about is how exactly do crits work? I know the higher the accuracy compared to deflection, the higher the crit chance is, right? But is there a base crit chance that goes up due to the excess accuracy, or is it that if you exceed their deflection (or whatever) by a large enough amount, it's automatically a crit?

  26. i registered just to give author GREAT THANKS for that! You really helped me a lot. I`m 33 years old, last time i played Baldurs Gate when i was about 15 and getting back without this great (because so simple) guide would be so much harder. Those basics where just what i needed. Thank you one more time, cheers from Kraków.
