  2. Ask if your concerned. Its not rocket science.
  3. If people are so concerned about not buying American food, then there will be incentive for food manufacturers who use better food practices to advertise it on their product. Like they already do with organic or corn fed etc...
  4. Why wouldn't it have country of origin written on it. Every item of food I buy has this. If people don't trust American food then they can choose something else. It's not hard to buy good quality food. If people cared about animal welfare as much as they say they do, they wouldn't buy half the food they do.
  5. Why? I don't see what the problem is. From what I've heard, it'll be the cheaper stuff anyway(chlorinated chicken), just don't buy it if you don't like it. With so many people experiencing food poverty in the U.K. cheaper food will help a lot of people. It makes me laugh, the amount of people I know who criticize American food, but will sit there dribbling while watching mans Vs food. πŸ˜‚ Yum.
  6. How is this news? Should be in speculations or trash.
  7. Sorry I can't help you, but would the tor browser or duck duck go be any help?
  8. Off topic, but this is brilliant. As someone who has a habit of posting news with sensationalist articles, this a great pointer for what to look for.
  9. I think my computer is spying on me. This is the first video on my YouTube account after reading this post. πŸ™‚
  10. It's a moment in time, that's all. Every country has ups and downs, Europe isn't a bed of roses either at the moment. Hopefully future gernerations will look back and comment on the changes in society that came about, and how much better off people were because of it.
  11. If A.I reaches its full potential the same could be said even if your in the top ten percent. The problem I see with giving people money, is that it's unlikely to be anything more than the minimum you need to survive. Most people would be living on the poverty line. If you try to earn a little more they'll just deduct it from your next payment. I agree with a universal basic income, but it needs to be more than just a cheque every two weeks. I've no idea what though. Also when people say everyone, does that include the wealthy? Not sure I agree with that, complete waste of money.

  13. Thanks Studiot, no longer confused. Seems simple now. +1
  14. Very confused right now. Can someone please explain how you get these numbers: From these numbers: ??? Thanks.
  15. Is it not possible to go back into education? Are there other ways to get research experience outside of college without being employed? Don't give up. Good luck.
  16. Three lads are hiding as stowaways on a ship that has suffered apparent terminal damage upon a reef, and after considering their options they decide to jump ship and swim to the nearest island using safety equipment they just happened to stumble upon. The beach that they landed on was beautiful and so was the island which looked just like the picture post-card tropical type. Feeling euphoric, they quickly decided to explore their newly found paradise only to stumble upon a tribe of fierce-looking natives. They quickly succumbed to the overwhelming armed numbers and were led back to the village where they were to be taken before the leader of the tribe. The leader was a harsh fellow, but he was also a fair leader. He shouted to the three guys that his tribe did not allow any sort of incursion, but if they could find 5 nuts each they would be allowed to build their own boat to sail away. They agreed to these terms and ventured into the undergrowth. After a couple of hours, the first one returned to the assembled villagers and chief where he was asked to show the nuts that he had found. The chief congratulated him, but then explained that he would need to insert these nuts into his anus and hold them there for a count of 100. This was the second and final part of the task. If he succeeded he would gain his freedom. It took a while to insert the first nut, he also found it an embarrassing exercise in front of the whole tribe, but gradually he carried on inserting, finding it easier as he went. Upon completion he then stood with his arms raised in triumph and with the count in the high eighties when he suddenly burst into uncontrollable laughter. It was then that he farted and lost the peanuts. Immediately he was carted away, tied to a post and had all sorts of combustibles placed around him. The chief reappeared carrying a burning torch and headed for the pyre. Before ignition and being a curious chief he asked the chap, "Why when he was so close to completion did he burst into laughter and lose his peanuts"? The reply was," The other two went looking for coconuts".
  17. Something I posted in the 'what are you listening to right now' thread. Edit: Just to note, the above video isn't posted with humour in mind. It just something I thought was appropriate given the thread title, and the fact people were discussing it. Edit 2: really sorry if I've offended anyone with this. I found the film really moving, and I'll admit, fascinating too. I don't think the film is made with bad intentions.
  18. Volcanic lightning is hard to beat. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volcanic_lightning Calbuco, The Awakening.” ...

  19. Cool photo. Love the way you can see the different colours of the light. Was this taken with a normal camera facing the flag or did you have to adjust any settings?

  22. If we go off the amount of words in dictionaries it's Korean, 1,100,373 words. Ingush has only 11,142 words. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_dictionaries_by_number_of_words Quite interesting: Toki Pona, 123 root words, 14 phonemes. πŸ™‚ https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toki_Pona

  24. Maybe this would of been a better OP title for the original thread. Did you really think you were going to get an intelligent discussion with flammable farts in the title?
