Russian Military Forces Have Now Invaded Ukraine

dunkelfalke Re:A bit less than 10 years ago (823 comments)

You have mismanaged to understand what I was trying to say. Whether Russian expansionism sucks or not, it is not the reason for Bulgaria being a shithole. Au contraire, Bulgaria used to export tomatoes back then, now they mainly export criminals.

Basically, you are a racist and it is sort of understandable that your acquaintances agree with you. Birds of feather and so on.

I have a colleague from Croatia. She loves Russian language and Russian culture, for what ever reason. Also a friend from the Czech republic who learns Russian now - because it is fun, not because she has to.

Russian Military Forces Have Now Invaded Ukraine

dunkelfalke Re:Send in the drones! (823 comments)

What good are laws when governmental thugs just come over and beat people up over TV content they don't like?

And if you understand German: http://www.spiegel.de/kultur/g...

Besides, you keep using the word "terrorists". I don't think it means what you think it means. When they start bombing civilians in Kiev, then they would be terrorists. And talking about how Ukraine is forced to fire on civilists is just showing how full of manure you are. There is a German journalist in Donetsk. He has explained several times how Ukrainian armed forces just indiscriminately shells the city while the separatists are nowhere near.

Russian Military Forces Have Now Invaded Ukraine

dunkelfalke Re:Send in the drones! (823 comments)

Bred out? Ukraine has been a province of the Russian empire for centuries (except for the parts of it that used to be a part of Poland). Basically the former Polish parts of the Ukraine hate Russians, the former Russian parts don't. They don't even speak the same language - and I don't mean Ukrainian vs Russian language, I mean eastern Ukrainian (which is closer to Russian) and western Ukrainian (which is basically funny Polish).

That is typical, always blaming the others. The reason why Bulgaria sucks is not because of Russians. Estonia was a part of the USSR and is way better off. No, the inherent and prevalent corruption is the actual reason. Don't blame Russians, blame yourselves. Besides, being on the wrong side in both WW1 and WW2 also was kind of a stupid decision, don't you think?
Although, you probably don't, since you seem to consider Russians subhuman, just as Hitler did.

Well, Reagan was pretty pissed at USSR coming to aid Nicaragua when USA supported the contras.

Net Neutrality Is 'Marxist,' According To a Koch-Backed Astroturf Group

dunkelfalke Re:Not Net Neutrality (525 comments)

And all the other stuff the US had first, that was just coincidence was it?

Yes. Same goes for the things that USSR had first.

Really though what the left like to call the traditional or nuclear family is nothing of the sort. It's an artifical creation put in place to give returning soldiers a place to go.

You forget the soldiers that return dead. This is the missing workforce women were set to replace.

You know your Rosie the Riveter quit her job after two weeks, right?

Who cares about one specific woman? It is only an anecdote, not data.

Read up on the events immediately following the 1917 revolution. They don't agree with your narrative.

Maybe you have read the wrong books then? In the USSR women worked literally everywhere, there were no jobs considered "too manly". In modern capitalist Russia the position of females became, in fact, way worse. But if you really want to know about things that happened immediately following 1917 revolution: USSR was the first country to legalise abortions. USSR had equal rights and women's suffrage starting with the first constitution of soviet Russia - in 1918. Compare that to the 19th amendment which is from 1920.

The thing is, second world war has slashed the soviet male population by a huge amount, thus after the war has ended there were far more women in the workforce than men. Actually, if I remember correctly then women were the majority (51-52%) of the soviet workforce for decades.

Net Neutrality Is 'Marxist,' According To a Koch-Backed Astroturf Group

dunkelfalke Re:Not Net Neutrality (525 comments)

US had the atomic bomb first because USSR was busy fighting the Germans so nuclear physics had a very low priority.

Women entering the workforce had also nothing to do with the additional free time. It was just that many men were on the front and this had to be compensated for. This is, by the way, the reason why the gender equality was much more pronounced in the USSR.

And social safety nets were caused by the socialists - albeit indirectly. Von Bismarck introduced them because he was afraid of socialists and wanted to lessen the socialist parties appeal.

NRC Analyst Calls To Close Diablo Canyon, CA's Last Remaining Nuclear Plant

Here in Germany my energy cost is small fry compared to all other expenses. In fact, I probably spend more for hookers than for electrical power and heating.

New EU Rules Will Limit Vacuum Cleaners To 1600W

dunkelfalke Re:Do the math (336 comments)

I prefer to have my own washing machine, to be honest. So a coin operated one is out of question.

This is how I do it: I fill the machine, switch it on and go away doing whatever I have to do. When I am back it is usually finished so I can hang the clothes to dry on the balcony. I don't match socks beforehand. Since I live alone, one day of washing per week is enough, but if I have to wash more than one load - happens sometimes - I don't do it on the same day - there is no reason to waste a whole day with that kind of boring crap. In fact, I can fill up the washing machine and set the timer so it would start washing whenever it would be the most practical time.

New EU Rules Will Limit Vacuum Cleaners To 1600W

dunkelfalke Re:Do the math (336 comments)

If I had that much to wash, I'd just wash one load every day, not everything at once. And actually yes, I switch mine on and go away.

New EU Rules Will Limit Vacuum Cleaners To 1600W

dunkelfalke Re:Do the math (336 comments)

16A is standard in Germany. Have just checked, the ones in my flat are all 16A except for the bathroom, the RCCB for it is 25A.
At 230V that would be almost 3.7kW per circuit. I think only the water heater actually uses that much since I don't own a full size electric stove.

dunkelfalke Re:Do the math (336 comments)

Why do you actually care how much time your washing machine uses? Fill it up, switch it on and do something else during the time.You are not a cat, you don't have to stay and watch it spin. European washing machines take so long because the detergents are much milder.

New EU Rules Will Limit Vacuum Cleaners To 1600W

dunkelfalke Re:Do the math (336 comments)

In the EU 230V outlets are standard (IEC 60038). 240V is UK (as always, they absolutely have to be different from everyone else) and Cyprus (as a former British colony).
Actually, most of the former EU countries used to have the 220V standard, but it was raised to 230V so it would be more compatible to UK.

Would Scottish Independence Mean the End of UK's Nuclear Arsenal?

dunkelfalke Re:Here's the interesting paragraph (375 comments)

This was not the first referendum on Crimea, by the way. The first one was in 1991, with a similar outcome. In fact, Crimea has voted for independence several months before Ukraine did, but for some reason, Ukrainian independence was regocnised, but not the Crimean one. Truly, some animals are more equal than others.
