    BUT IT WORKS [ IF you have the rugged determination to see it through, I may add ] Here in the uK we had a very bad case of election fraud & rigging that was first spotted through simple recognition...

    In English: "Prcitce makes perfect" but the quivalent in German is subtly different: Ubung macht den Meister - "practice makes a master" ... "of the prcocess as-is" is implied .......

    The trouble with"underground" is that you can be trapped in there, by your opposition dumping tons of shit on top. So you have to build-in a backdoor emergency exit, which, of course brings its own vulnerabilities ... [ Scissors /...

    "Muscle Memory" Can also be (maybe) a trap. I learnt to cycle about my 11th birthday, & I'll be 72 in about 7 week's time & I'm still cycling a bit .... Last year, I was offered a hour or...

    because we haven't really had a true Tay Bridge / Hindenburg / de Havilland Comet moment yet. Well, the aforementioned "Internet of things" disaster I've been predicting will be it, I suspect. Because we've all had plenty of warning &...

    STARTING with those supposedly-responsible for "The internet of Things" Quite soon, people are going to be killed & maimed & scarred for life, because of the non-existent security procedures in those devices, followed, without any shadow of doubt by malicious...

    867 868 So - slowing, levelling off, but not fast enough ... seems to be the correct answer? And thanks....

    Like I said - see "Enfield Haunting" IIRC the jury is still out on that one. Playing devil's advocate ... imagine the chaos if a well-attested recorded incident or set of incidents were to be accepted as valid ..... The...

    What's the current projection for maximum (world) population [ both numbers & date ] before the "only 2 children" meme really cuts in & the population starts to decline? Estimates?...

    This is stretching suspension of disbelief rather a long way. "Poltergeist" ... really? That means that ghosts & possibly "gods" are real & I'm simply just not buying that without some real, you know: evidence. See also "Enfield Haunting"...

    No look at the developed world, or even parts of the third world, where the fucking "priests" have been stamped on. Look at the birth-rates. IF we can continue to get the birth-rates down to below 2.1 per couple, then...
