Many of them already know. Ukraine has been intercepting mobile phone calls from Russian frontline soldiers to friends and family in Russia daily, since the war began. 

There are several YouTube channels that play some of the calls along with translation. Here's a recent video from one of them, and I recommend checking out more of his channel.

 

My friend's mother was in comms (cant remember the name of the place but possibly where they worked on Enigma) during WWII.  She was intercepting radio communication between German fighters and their base, she was deeply affected by how many of those brutal Hunn were just young boys crying to be home and safe.

War never changes, does it?

As someone who doesn't know a lot about Russia, what's the reason behind them all dying?  Were they all putting pressure on Putin to stop his nonesense? I'm guessing sanctions would hit them hard (ish) but not enough to top themselves.

 

Back in the year 2000 Putin had a famous meeting with the new rich of Russia. In it he told them they could continue to make huge amounts of money only by backing him, and made their staff back him. Its why Khodorkovsky was jailed and Berezovsky fled. Ever since people have been falling out of windows, crashing helicopters, having early strokes and just generally being incredibly unlucky. Russia has been a total criminal state for a long time now and Putin is its Capo di tutti capi.

The key thing is too that you don’t need any of it papered if people know they’ll fall out of windows or have their family axed to death when things go wrong. It’s a whole shadow economy where people only know what their parts of the chain are and if they help themselves or if they jeopardize any other links in the chain then basically they’re dead. Some won’t even know what part of the chain they are.

Interesting (if long) Twitter thread from yesterday on whether "a culture of institutionalised lying contribute to Russia's recent disaster".  Of course the Russian Army isn't the only bureaucracy in which such things happen, but it provides an extreme example.

Bested only by the IoM CS....? 😂

It was, presumably produced to a somewhat difference the regular Ram Bak? It was only a slight difference, more seeds and malt??? Still the same basic recipe? Still the same Ram Bak with the \molenberg   requirements

Strange how we complained about the price of Manx Bread and yet we are paying morre for imported bread!!! We weren't using Ukrainian wheat, were we???

....and what have we got? Soft white sqishty from many sources, any outlet, any price. Is that what what we want?

We aren’t - the cost of most bread has gone down quite substantially since Ramsey Bakery shut up shop.

Coffee watch:

Cycle 360 - latest rip off merchants.

Thimble of Flat White

Last week £2.80

Today £3.20

That's me done with them.

They will be devastated no doubt.

Their costs are going through the roof so obviously they need to increase prices?  What are you basing “rip off” on?  Have you seen their accounts?
