    TT 2022 ??

    Unfortunately ahead of the technology available.
  2. I suppose it depends on how you read it HeliX, the author is comparing the tactics employed by BLM to those he and his family experienced and associated with the USSR. Allegedly a Marxist regime!
  3. Yes, although many people have contributed financially to the foundation in the belief that it is benign. The sentiment and the organisation sadly are inextricably linked through the name which even confuses the vast majority who truly believe that Black Lives Matter. Surely it is not that hard to understand/
  4. Returning to the conversation about BLM and its Marxist bias...
  5. We already have a plan thread

    A Plan

    No real substance until January, which seems optimistic but great if things are beginning to move to sensible timescales/
  7. I didn't know that thread titles had become sacracent?

    COP21

    World's largest car makers refuse to sign up to zero emissions deal... https://news.sky.com/story/worlds-largest-car-manufacturers-swerve-climate-commitment-12464857?dcmp=snt-sf-twitter Like most things climate related, we are relying on technology which hasn't been sufficiently developed or doesn't even exist yet in our rush to net zero.

    COP21

    Thanks for the link Roger. Another scientific site which I saw and can't find now, seemed to say that we were entering a warming phase of the cycle? I would guess that NASA would be pretty reliable though.

    COP21

    The warming has taken a sudden upturn yes, would that not happen anyway when a certain point in the Milankovitch cycle is reached? I guess we don't know what form previous warming cycles took with regard to timescales and tipping points? As I say, it's only my opinions which really count for very little. I haven't said that we should do nothing, we actually are already doing quite a lot, but there is so little that we can do as individuals. It's government and big business who will have the biggest effect either way! The one thing which we can do, and I have probably sacrificed more than most on here or in fact anywhere, is not to have children. That one act would have a dramatic effect on our planet and carbon output.

    COP21

    There were vineyards all over England, introduced by the Romans and further cultivated by monasteries, until Henry VIII had his spat. The climate was much warmer then apparently, until the little ice age.

    COP21

    Hang on wrighty, I'm not at your intelligence level, nor that of many posters on here! I'm not a denier but like you, I don't think we are going to stop it changing. I'm sure that we have had an effect on our environment which certainly could have been having an effect on climate, but I subscribe to the fact that we are going through a warming phase, as has been happening for millenia. The Milankovich cycle probably explains this in my opinion? My answer? Clean up our act and stop making such a mess, but I think we will be growing grapes on the slopes of Snaefell at some point, no matter how many electric cars and wind turbines we are conned into purchasing!

    COP21

    I guess this is as good a place as any to leave this...
  14. I won't argue there, however heroin is as good as a death sentence, just ruins the lives of everyone, including their friends and relatives. Coke is mainly recreational and not addictive, although some get hooked on the feeling, rather than the body craving it like heroin.
  15. I can only imagine that the payout relates to compensation for a perceived inconvenience or unfair treatment at a particular juncture?
  16. I wouldn't know either of them if I fell over them, although the first gentleman's name gives a clue to his ethnicity anyway. I do like the way the court seems to have no clue about the differences between the misery caused by heroin and cocaine!
  17. It is serious yes, but not restricted to Twitter. Narcissists and psychopaths are naturals at this, they lie about events which their victim remembers differently, until they believe the false version and begin to doubt themselves.
  18. Gaslighting is a form of emotional abuse that's seen in abusive relationships. It's the act of manipulating a person by forcing them to question their thoughts, memories, and the events occurring around them. A victim of gaslighting can be pushed so far that they question their own sanity.
  19. +1 This is little different to Twitter where a lot of people hide their real names. I do it here so that I can talk freely and pass on any info that may come my way, not that I often have much interesting to say. Many people know who I am anyway! I really don't understand the vitriol either, she's tarring everyone on this forum with the same brush as perhaps a couple of people who dared to question her? We all know that anonymous forums, especially Twitter, attract some people who feel brave enough to be even more stupid than they are in real life but I have lost a bit of respect for her views now. It does make me wonder if this is why she was shunned by government in the first place?

    COP21

    Well yes, in some respects, but the methodology is much the same.

    COP21

    Strange how all these marchers spitting vitriol and waving divisive placards like 'Pick a side' don't seem to realise that very few people are climate change deniers? It's just another thing to divide us, we can't discuss anything. This reminds me of the films of the Nazis beating drums and marching to discourage people from supporting Jewish businesses in the 1930s

    I can only think that it's an 'underlayer' for a tarmac surface?

    TT 2022 ??

    The road repairs were deferred to allow the road to be in good condition for the races so I don't think there's an issue there. The costs will have been allocated. Insurance will take care of the Mercer incident. There is no requirement to do the Manx or S100 providing you can prove your capability. Racing has been in full swing elsewhere so there should be no issues with qualification or experience. I think there's been a upsurge of interest in the races, we may find fewer international travellers for obvious reasons but the island is pretty accessible for Brits and Irish and the break may have done us some good?
