legitimate uses would be drowned out by revisionism.
à la Reddit.
People are using this script to sign the petition. Still think all those votes are legitimate?
An independent Scotland joining the EU is an absolute non-starter. Spain would veto their application at every attempt.
It would be a sad day when
When the story broke there were dozens of threads speculating that it was a neo-Nazi or other right wing nutjob which the mods had no problems with. As soon as it was revealed that the shooter was a Muslim, operation 1984 went into full effect. It was actually scary to see not just individual comments, but entire threads being deleted in front of my eyes.
This is why I believe the Slashdot moderation system, while not perfect, is probably the best out there, and is why I would like to comment on news and current affairs here over the cancerous shithole that Reddit has become.
The fact Reddit are censoring all comments over the shooter's identity is a good reason to discuss it here IMO.
I'm missing this one - the tobacco industry presumably supplies the nicotine that's vaped by these things
You presume wrongly.
My own observation is that obese people tend to skip or have a very light breakfast. They then make up for it by having a big lunch, dinner and then snacks right up until bedtime. I've always felt that you should be a little hungry when you go to bed, then have a good size breakfast in the morning. Improves sleep, and sets you up for the day, with only a light lunch and dinner required. I also find that it prevents you from feeling tired in the afternoon.
Lack of government funding should be a matter for parliament and the electorate. We can use our vote and lobby MPs and civil servants. If the EU dropped funding for a project would you have the same influence? Would you even know who to write to?
In an ideal world, yes; but someone has to collect the taxes and decide where the money goes. My problem is having that money go through two governments, one of which is the grossly inefficient, if not borderline corrupt EU.
There's lots of comments on Reddit and elsewhere decrying the potential loss of EU funding for science and a multitude of other projects in the event of Brexit.
What people seem oblivious to is where this money comes from. Governments collect money from taxpayers, which hands it over to Brussels who then take a huge cut to fund the European Commission, the EU Parliament and all of its trappings. Estimates I've seen is a 50% cut just to fund the body that does the funding.
Surely Science would benefit more if they cut out the (extremely bloated) middleman and was funded directly by government?
Or a winch.
