  1. Yep. No photos or audio though. Only memories of there angular, discordant alt-pop.
  2. I'm definitely qualified. I got a BS from the University of Lif. I know for a fact that you're probably right, maybe.
  3. That is on an elemental level. If you go up to the level on which lifeforms exist, I believe most of what we consider our own mass can be considered other lifeforms. ---------- Post added 23-10-2018 at 20:18 ---------- Ah,yes. Last paragraph in that link says; Composition by cell type Main article: List of distinct cell types in the adult human body There are many species of bacteria and other microorganisms that live on or inside the healthy human body. In fact, 90% of the cells in (or on) a human body are microbes, by number[34][35] (much less by mass or volume). Some of these symbionts are necessary for our health. Those that neither help nor harm humans are called commensal organisms.
  4. Firstly, 'sort of implying' something doesn't really cut it for me, especially with the tone of your comment being quite patronising. Secondly, the point about them being for the visually impaired kind of falls short if someone is standing right next to the light blocking everyone elses view, which, in my experience happens frequently and which is my prime complaint about them. For most people, the lights positioned on the opposite side on pelican crossings are, and have always been, perfect. At busy times everyone can see them (unless visually impaired, of course). All the other improvements made for the visually impaired and wheelchair users, or others of low stature could have been brought in as well as, and not at the expense of, the tried and tested methods we have enjoyed previously. So in short, what I think is ridiculous, is the idea that taking down the lights opposite is helping the visually impaired etc. Goodbye, farewell, adieu. Please don't bother me with this nonsense again.
  5. Try some more 'maybes' because they're ridiculous. Do you think that I think it's as simple as 'grrrr... these modern ways'? Did I say something that implies that?
  6. I've grumbled about these for ages. I guess it's one of those modern 'improvements' on something that has worked very well for decades. I'd like to know what the reasoning is behind this design.
  7. What does the potassium break down in to?
  8. https://medium.com/insurge-intelligence/the-british-governments-russia-nerve-agent-claims-are-bull****-a69b4ee484ce Okay. Do I have to comment on my link so it isn't taken down again? if comments are deleted surely we should be given a reason in order to not make the same mistake again. BTW, I think some of the views in the article are very interesting and might shed a little more light on the situation..
  9. I remember a Spitting Image sketch in which MP's were allowed to bring in their toys on the last day of Parliament :0D
  10. For their value over previous weeks, just look at the sold listings on ebay.
  11. Eat magnesium rich foods and avoid ingesting too much Camelia sinensis infused water as it can block magnesium uptake.
  12. That kind of thing happened in China too. Funny, I was just wishing I had added 'in party politics' alongside international ramifications. Anyhow, I'm glad we got that sorted and you agree with me. I knew I was right all along. See ya'.
  13. Off the top of my head, the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China is a recent example of how a dictatorship might treat its civilians. Though they all may be guilty of practising Falun Gong, which seems to be a crime only in China, the state's priority, I believe, was for them to be seen to be in charge. There are countless examples of this type of thing since the Chinese Communist Revolution. People were thought of as guilty if their parents had 'bourgeois' parentage. When the Red Guard went about their public humiliations and violence against anything resembling 'anti-party' I doubt they went about searching for evidence. Like you say, they bent the rules and lowered the threshold. In this case, the threshold was whatever the individuals wanted it to be. The real fear, from people on either side of the punishments, was to be thought of as anti-party. Can't think of any more off the top of my head. Maybe we could go to Africa. Mugabe doesn't strike me as the kind of guy to be thinking, 'Now people aren't stupid and will realise if I'm not gathering evidence to prove the guilt of people I want to bump off, therefore I'm going to fabricate some evidence.' It might be true if it has some international ramifications, I guess. Can you give me any examples of this? 'Dictators much prefer innocence till proven guilty and then lowering the threshold, bending the rules or fabricating the evidence.'
