But surely the right to trade is an essential liberty?

Nah s'okay - shouldn't have
 gone off on you - made the
 mistake of taking a break
 from a stressful day by
 catching up on the news and
 the sheer volume of lies and
 bullshit being thrown
 around under the guise of
 "I'm only saying..." left my
 blood boiling.

No probs, it's all cool.

I feel, though, that "free broadband" today opens the door for "internet driving licenses" tomorrow. That's a great way to control access - getting points on your license for visiting the wrong site or posting the wrong thing until you get banned from surfing.

I am cynical, aren't I? No wonder I piss folk off so much! :D

Jeez - sorry, DDD. I was trying to make a point about...

Well, I guess it doesn't matter. I misjudged the mood of the thread and posted the wrong thing, for which I apologise.

Nowt more from me on the subject here.

Lee Harvey Oswald defected to the Soviet Union in October 1959 and lived in Minsk until June 1962, when he returned to the United States with his Russian wife, Marina, and eventually settled in Dallas.

This is the kind of factoid that simply cries out for speculation. It doesn't mean the Russians were responsible for the assassination, nor does it mean they had nothing to do with it. In itself, it means only what it says. One cannot deny, though, that it adds spice, and possibly even a little context, to the overall story.

When discussing this point, using the term "conspiracy theory" to dismiss it out of hand, in my evolving opinion, is rarely useful.

On balance, it was probably just confusion-induced sloppy reporting. Probably.

Really dude? Really? This playground urban legend?
"It is certainly true that on 9/11 the BBC broadcast that WTC7 had collapsed when it was still standing." BBC website. I'm not arguing for or against anything else in that article, because I simply don't know, but it's a fact that the BBC reported the collapse (which looked like a controlled demolition, whether it was or it wasn't) some time before it happened - for whatever reason.

And don't forget that the BBC reported the controlled demolition collapse of WTC 7 about half an hour early.

Hello and welcome to the latest resurrection of I'm Sorry, I Haven't a Prog, the thread that does for this forum what the original Rico Dredd did for the hula-hoop.

As we approach the end of the prologue for the run up to the run up to Christmas 2021, I thought it might be an idea to demonstrate the Festive Spirit by presenting a huge turkey that seems to last forever.

Let's start with a round of Grotty Grotto - the Christmas presents you asked for and the disappointing substitutes you actually got. For example:

I asked for "The Beatles Anthology" but got "The I-Spy Book of Insects."
I asked for a Land Raider but got a wheelbarrow full of weedkiller.
I asked for a Millennium Falcon but got an ageing budgie.
I asked for a Judge's Helmet but got John Deed's foreskin.

You can do better, surely...
