  1. https://www.visiontimes.com/2021/07/04/deaths-hospital-vaccinated-uk.html @Zoraptor and others that understand much about this virus What do you make of this link, basically someone sent it to me based on a view that " vaccinations lead to more deaths or an equal number of deaths ". I dont understand if its true based on what the article is saying?
  2. Nice, you have friendly neighboors....is this one of people you sometimes visit and drink with?
  3. English breakfast time, nothing better on a Sunday. Today its eggs, beef sausage, bacon, potato rostis, tomato and toast ....another almost Vegan but delicious meal
  4. l love it when its bad weather on the weekends because I can stay inside and game all day with no guilt that I should be doing something outside
  5. The article raises some good points, I have very bad experiences with unions in SA especially when they lead to the public or private company not being able to function properly or when unreasonable and egregious union demands ultimately destroy any hope of profitability and the company closes down or disinvests in the country like we see in SA in the mining sector. But I agree with the article in comments like below but this should be normal in labor laws and work conditions and not require a union "The existence of the union has been very helpful for making the lives of everyone at Massive better in the sense that pressure got us sick days, parental leave and other benefits not out of the goodness of Massive’s heart but in an attempt to resist full unionization,” said the rep, noting that Massive has not fully negotiated its collective bargaining agreement yet, but is most of the way there and is already able to operate in many ways a union would under Swedish law. But the rep also doesn’t believe a union is necessarily the solution to Activision Blizzard’s urgent troubles. For one, they can take months or years to establish — even in a country like Sweden, where large union confederations are a primary means of enforcing labor rights (nearly 70 percent of Swedish citizens are in unions)" And also I dont think Blizzard has shutdown their entire office in California?
  6. I agree, it was a terrible tragedy. These things sadly occur in war zones and countries like Afghanistan
  7. One of the advantages of moving to Cpt, because it hasnt been financial, is easy access to walks and nature reserves within 20 minutes of where I live. These nature reserves are ubiquitous and all around the base of Table Mountain Today we went to a walk in Constantia reserve, some pictures below. This include a house owned by some fortunate person who lives on the border of the reserve and a photo of the sea from a viewpoint
  8. Im not crazy about the voiceover but I have no issue with the overall plot with Jax having to convince factions of the new existential threat....thats normal PB design where you align with factions
  9. https://www.investorvillage.com/smbd.asp?mb=4288&mn=682097&pt=msg&mid=22403445 Here is an really interesting link about a study that possibly explains causes for long term symptoms of Corona, in summary " According to the findings, there is an antibody that appears weeks after the initial infection and "attacks and disrupts a key regulator of the immune system." Researchers and scientists have been trying to understand the cause of COVID-19 patients experiencing symptoms for longer. Around 30% of patients with the virus deal with "lingering fatigue, brain fog and shortness of breath."
  10. Okay that makes sense and are you not worried about getting Corona and then getting more sick than you would be if you hadnt taken the vaccine? In other words I am not saying you cant get the virus with vaccines but the evidence is real that 95 % of the hospitalizations and deaths are people without vaccinations https://healthfeedback.org/claimreview/unvaccinated-individuals-now-account-for-the-vast-majority-of-covid-19-hospitalizations-and-deaths-in-the-u-s-according-to-available-data/
  11. Skarpie I want to ask you an important question, what would you need to see or believe to convince you to take the Corona vaccine. I am not trying to change your mind based on my reasons I just want to know what will change your mind? The reason I ask is SA is only at about 30 % vaccination as we have many people who dont want to take and I am trying to see how to change this. Also this is global problem for many counties with the US at about 55 % and Poland more or less the same and we not gaining traction so its time to try something different and ask " how can can help convince people who dont want to take the vaccines " ?
  12. Skarpie have you been fully vaccinated , Im concerned with the levels of vaccine hesitancy we see in most of our countries and how this primarily spreads the virus and mutations
  13. https://www.windowscentral.com/dying-light-2-delayed-february-2022 Dying Light 2 has been delayed till 4 February. I am fine with that because I would rather wait till the game is ready according to the Developers than get an bug ridden game due to early release like Cyb2077 DY2 also is bigger and better on every level so delays are understandable
  14. Guys please be fair to Nicki Minaj, she is allowed to make some mistakes because she is really hot....remember what they taught us at school about "beautiful people are not perfect " and all that Oh this story is also on CNN so its international ....I genuinely feel sorry for her because she says she was misquoted or what she said was taken out of context ...Im not sure how but I believe her
  15. Good one, I never even thought about this type of joke and what she said This is what she apparently said on Twitter Nicki Minaj @NICKIMINAJ My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen. His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding. So just pray on it & make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied
  16. This is one of those debatable points and is nuanced but Milleys concern that Trump could somehow order some sort of nuclear action shouldnt be ignored as was raised by Woodward Considering the numerous " unconstitutional " things Trump did or wanted to do why do you think he should be punished now by the Biden presidency? I do support the reason you have trenchant structures in the military and what generals can or cant do but dont you think this is the exception? For example lets say in some nightmare scenario Trump wanted to nuke China at the end of his presidency .....dont you think this should have been ignored by the generals because of the global fallout and consequences ?
  17. Last night I had a terrible night sleep with feverish and disruptive dreams about Nicki Minaj and today I feel like I have a hangover Vaccine sleep disorder are apparently common temporary symptoms with many people, I had no issues with my first jab And yesterday I was reading that Nicki Minaj said her cousin in Trinidad after getting vaccinated was suffering from sexual dysfunction so its clear where my subconscious mind got that part of my fever dreams from
  18. Im about 35 hours into AC Odyssey and still in the "Ubisoft honeymoon " period, I am really enjoying killing mercenaries, cultists and animals. I am not particularly fond of Naval combat because the mechanics I find arent elegant and I seem to have to rely on ramming to defeat most enemies But so far so good
  19. The majority of US generals have integrity and I am surprised you dont like Milley more because he specifically and prudently reached out to China to prevent an unintentional nuclear crisis if Trump went rogue after not accepting the 2020 election results Trump wants him charged for treason for contacting his equivalent general in the CCP This is according to Bob Woodwards latest book " Peril "
  20. https://www.mercurynews.com/2021/09/15/biden-uk-to-help-australia-acquire-nuclear-submarines/ You see Gothfuscious, its like I told you. Oz may be a country of criminal descendants but the West wont abandon its real friends in the geopolitical arena and concerns about Chinese hegemony
  21. Its not so much that as its true that their were and are Saudis that supported AQ and Islamic extremism. But its not the official policy of Saudi Arabia to fund and support any Islamic extremist group as Saudi Arabia has also been targeted by the likes of AQ and ISIS since the beginning of the War on Terror. So the Saudis are an ally of the US in this conflict because they are also threatened https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_terrorist_incidents_in_Saudi_Arabia Also its unlikely you would find Iranian fundamentalists aligning with AQ and ISIS because these groups are Sunni Muslims and Iran is predominantly Shia But Iranian hardliners do target the US but its a different threat to likes of the Sunni extremist groups
  22. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/5-takeaways-from-newsoms-big-win-in-californias-recall-election/ar-AAOrS4z Im glad Newsom won the Californian referendum resoundingly I honestly would have expected that considering California is a liberal, blue state and Elder suggested policies that seemed "un-California " for me So well done Democrat supporters for coming out in numbers
  23. Great news, I have just got my second Pfizer jab....yaaaaaaaaaay Its the beginning to finally being able to get my life back to " normal ". I can at least go to bars, restaurants and customers with less anxiety
  24. You never joke.....since when did you start joking
