@jegga nah me neither.
I seem to recall we had a fair idea what bullshit smelt like back then
@jc in your humble opinion mate, is he very trustworthy?
I really like what he presents and it seems very logical, but authenticity is such a fickle resource when it comes to learning things these days
I found this discussion interesting with Dr Bjorn Lomborg from the Copenhagen Consensus Centre. They've been working with some of the worlds top economists on rank ordering the worlds problems and devising data on where resources are best invested in order attain the best return on investment, for the most amount of 'good', in the shortest amount of time.
They talk about the more 'celebrity endorsed' causes such as climate change which get the most attention but in the grand scheme of things are most likely not where we should be putting out money, at least not where we are currently. Worth a listen.
It's well worth a listen for everybody trying to wrap their brain around too complex issues for us to accurately comprehend.
Should be compulsory viewing for the entire population
Classic ending where in 5 minutes JP began a meaningful and prudent strategy to help his own country which would take 2 million dollars and 18 months.
I wish someone in NZ would do the same
@virgil Thailand has a Grace every week!
Often with explicit naked corpse photos on MSM tv and print. Then comes a sham trial and a stitch up of some poor migrant.
The well practiced procedure of Authorities to media is express sincere remorse to the family and reiterate that the police have a job to do and we should let the investigation progress.
End of response.
Tourism never misses a step despite people virtue signalling the house down
@mooshld Doesn't even have to be Tinder-related. I was a bit younger than Grace when I lived overseas. One day I got off the subway to walk home for lunch before afternoon classes and some guy in a suit grabbed me and tried to drag me down an alley. I was wearing jeans and a sweater.
Acting like this shit only happens when women are drunk or underdressed or meeting a stranger in a bar is completely false. There are fuckwits everywhere who think they are entitled to things they aren't. No, I don't blame all men, or all Taiwanese people for the incident. It was one man who got a punch to the head for his efforts.
I wasn't trying to imply this only happens on hookups. Was just trying to highlight how we just take for granted how much easier some things are for most of us posters on this forum.
My wife saw a guy hit on a girl, on her train, last weekend. The girls said she wasn't interested. He spat in her face as he left the train. That just doesn't happen in the other direction.
Sorry, but that's the dumbest statement on the internet today
This "good for tourism and business" angle doesn't really wash with me
It suggests that by not grovelling to the world, tourism would (might) drop.
Nobody even thought twice about NZ being dangerous until this fucken bint starting spouting shit that apparently we fell asleep on watch.
People wealthy enough to holiday in NZ understand a nations responsibility for a lone nutter in their population, and anyone who doesn't wasn't coming here anyway, because stupid are often poor.
Adern's message may have been appropriate in private to the grieving parents, in fact it should have been just that, but oh no, a woke opportunity presented itself...
