  1. Same can be said about other incentives, like wealth generation, yet, you vae ideas like communism and ultra socializm popping up
  2. My grandma, near 100ys old, is still growing them on a small piece of land each season. She comes from rural areas, and she has a tiny piece of land in a small farming commute, who use some land on the outskirts of a big city, and each takes care of their own tiny piece for personal use. The strawberries, rasberries, tomatos, carrots, applea, cucumbers, etc. Flavor like no other.
  3. Reasoning of such aside, when you have credit cards, smartphones, etc. which do not require a microchip to know everything about you (ever had that odd feeling that when you talk about something near your phone with android, you get some change on your display of adds powered by google adds?), its not impossible tech wise with the new tech roll out. I just do not see a real benefit for the cost. Why would I ever be bothered to track joe the geek or bunny the pothead? You are much better at 'controling' population by making it fragmented and divided wtih no real common values, stupid on a
  4. Oh noooo! Blue screen of death!
  5. @Boeroer I have the luck to buy from a trusted small family outlet, where the guy wakes up at 1AM and takes a truck to collect vegies from farmer shops he trusts and then he puts all that food on shelves before he opens at 9AM For me there is a matter of taste, also defrosting and how you do that does influence what you get back from a veggie compared to the fresh one. @Guard Dog I grow sometimes only some herbs at home, like basil. We are terrible at home with plants upkeep I had a cactus dry out....
  6. Frozen is a waste of good qualities of the food. I do my groceries myself, every 2nd day with no more than I know I'll cook/prepare for my household (i hate wasting food and money). I usually eat regional seasonal veggies and some meat from local butchers and Fresh fish on the delivery days for gourmet (I know when the plane with supplies fly in). I try to avoid exotic stuff, even though I like things like Avocado, becuase of how this affects deforestations and increases carbon footprint. (same reason, why I travel with public comm daily, and rent a car on occasions when I re
  7. @Hurlshot I recall some old joke post. I wonder when such will be made illegal due to 'offensive' words in it. 8:00 AM - I MADE A SNOW MAN 8:10 AM - A FEMINIST PASSED BY AND ASKED, “WHY DIDN’T YOU MAKE A SNOW WOMEN?!” 8:15 AM - SO, I MADE A SNOW WOMEN 8:17 AM - MY FEMINIST NEIGHBOR COMPLAINED ABOUT THE SNOW WOMEN VOLUPTUOUS CHEST, SAYING “IT WILL OBJECTIFY SNOW WOMEN EVERYWHERE!” 8:20 AM - THE GAY COUPLE LIVING NEAR BY THREW A HISSY FIT AND MAULED, “IT COULD HAVE BEEN TWO SNOW MEN INSTEAD!” 8:22 AM - THE TRANSGENDER MAN WOMEN PERSON ASKED, “WHY DIDN’T YOU CH
  8. It was an example, but hey, if you can modify an OK sign, I guess you can turn on everything with the right spin and resources.
  9. So, if I decide to troll people, and a poop sign will be meaning people of color, should the poop sign be banned? If I will replace it later on, with a toilet sign, will it also be banned? If I will use an 'equal' sign for straight supremacy, will this need to be banned as well? Thumbs up being a gay-catcall? Just because a bunch of weirdos decided to push something trolly and prove how stupid and over sanitized environment will become, that should then result in vast majority of people to adapt and change, just not to be falsely accused due to lack of context? Because of SM now you can
  10. Thanks for adding the India part, I recall it was there as well. Not sure if they self censor it in any way though. In Japan I recall they self censor that on tourist maps, even though it only resembles the Swastika mark.
  11. Just because some nutts start using that, it does not mean it should be interpreted as such. This is cultural appropriation at its worst. What makes it that bad, is that it now is forced at other areas as something bad. People need to learn US cultural issues=/worlds cultural issues There is a long standing issue in Japan, that their certain religious sign is deemed in western world as something very bad, due to a certain party in Germany using that mark. Even though it predates the recent use by hundreds of years. I think the only reason the Japanese choked it up on th
  12. @Gorth Similar case to Google. Just not as prominent. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2021/jan/24/inevitable-google-and-facebook-will-pay-for-australian-news-treasurer-says
  13. Heh, you have nutts on both sides. At one point, someone decided that a long standing, long time used hand gesture for an OK sign is meaning something else, or you get people in congress look stupid by adding to the end of a prayer using a latin/hebrew phrase Amen(so be it!) another word, completely irrelevant to the context, A-women... Also, 'minorities' are in majority conservative when it comes to genders and beliefs. There is only so much they will trade in for some extra buck.
  14. It's somewhat telling, how little attention this story gets. Try googling for it and see what are the top returned results. (750 killed in ethiopia) https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/jan/24/fabled-ark-could-be-among-ancient-treasures-in-danger-in-ethiopias-deadly-war Imagine, if this was some other minority group.
  15. @BruceVC I know this is behind a paywall, but the topic in itself is worth attention. Do you think, that there is a real threat that at one point SA could follow in the steps of other african countries? It seems it has already deteriorated in terms of governance since the idealistic days of late 90s. https://www.gisreportsonline.com/africas-presidents-for-life,politics,3415.html
  16. @Gorth So tthe spat between Aussie gov't and Google/Facebook intensifies? @BruceVC https://www.forbes.com/sites/thomasbrewster/2021/01/21/facebook-gives-fbi-private-messages-of-users-discussing-capitol-hill-riot/ This is the reason, why you don't want private data stored under US oversight. I can understand an action against an arrested person, that is charged with a tresspass action, and I can agree/understand to a degree a scan of publically posted info by users (a lot of companies do that already), but there is so many cases, where this is not right.

  18. Yes, working with and for financial institutions with various algorithms, forecast models, event driven logical chains and dependancies, processes etc. I make a decent living out of that now. I also remember times, where I had to live in a relative poverty, with one decent meal a day and some scraps on other occassions. Can you turn your talk and ideas into real money? A lot of ideas are not popular, but it's not always about popularity contest, but about effectiveness and how not to let society deteriorate to a breaking point, and while you do not want to admit, your values
  19. We survived, evolved and built civilization and we were driven for a majority of our existence by various survival tactics? Do you know when was the last recorded large 'starvation'/'hunger' event? When did the population started to boom? When you look regionally, what actions led to boom and were the actions to deal with various crisises devloped within the population of the region or outside of it?
  20. Funny, but I saw to that, as I was not a burden on my father and had to pay for it to him, while I let him live there so he can enjoy his retirement and only pays for amenities, lije electricity
  21. I have one, but it was inherited. I was buying apartments myself
