“The NOAA says that using nuclear weapons on a hurricane “might not even alter the storm” and the “radioactive fallout would fairly quickly move with the tradewinds to affect land areas””
#############################################
Is this a joke…or another ‘pork pie’!!


#3002

Actually it’s something that was suggested as far back as the 60/70’s … maybe one day someone will be able to dissipate a hurricane without spreading a radioactive cloud ?


#3003

Yes, and it was ridiculed then by anyone with any brain cells.


#3004

… did you miss the last line ??


#3005

Yes… If it’s a joke… I don’t get it.

Fynne, you should have read the article…it was suggested in the 1950’s:

“George Washington University Professor Sharon Squassoni says the idea stems from the Plowshares Program of the 1950s when a “laundry list of different weird… fantastical, slightly crazy” uses for nuclear weapons was devised by government researchers.”

Let us hope - or the sane amongst us- that BoJo doesn’t hear of the idea and use it as a solution to the Irish border problem!

I read a biography of Professor Richard Feynman (Nobel prize winner) who worked on the Manhatten project. At the end of the project they were asked to think of crazy ideas for nuclear fission to file as patents…crazy stuff that was plainly absurd…nuclear powered hair dryers etc (or perhaps extinguishing hurricanes!!). Every so often some industrialist would phone him up and say he liked the idea of his patented ‘nuclear powered hair dryer’ & he wanted to put it into production. I reckon Feynman responded “It was a joke you moron!!”

Unfortunately, some people just cannot take a joke…seems to apply to the POTUS.

PS: I was joking about using a nuclear bomb to solve the backstop…before our Brexiteer brethren get too excited…“It was a joke you moron!!”


#3007

Talk about bad publicity…is this a company that is out of control OR just unlucky!!


#3008

SBK that’s an insult to bellends


#3009

It was coming…should concentrate a few minds.


#3010

Whats the best, easiest way to take cash out of bank
Both individual and corporate accounts ?
That without casuing alarms


#3011

Another reason why expats are leaving Thailand…perhaps?!

"Sebastian Brousseau, CEO of Isaan Lawyers in Nakhon Ratchasima province says, “I have clients that were in Thailand before, that are leaving Thailand because they feel unwelcome,” "


#3012

Almost impossible whenever I have taken out a few £K I have been questioned about it. The only acceptable answer seemed to be to pay local tradesmen


#3013

Oilo,

My daughters been living in Thailand for years and she is seriously thinking about leaving because of this.


#3014

I wasn’t sure what issue you chaps were referring to here… is this related to some other discussion?

Ms Khan, a former adviser to Chancellor Philip Hammond had been retained by his successor at No 11, Sajid Javid.

"“a police officer stationed at the door of No 10 Downing Street escorted a woman (Ms Khan) from the front door to exit gates as she did not have a security pass at the time”.

Security clearance had been withdrawn from Ms Khan after she had been summoned to a meeting with the prime minister’s senior adviser and de facto chief of staff Dominic Cummings.

At the meeting with Mr Cummings, Ms Khan handed over both her personal and work phones, and her phone logs were checked.

There was evidence she had been in touch with former colleagues who had worked for Mr Hammond.

However, there was no evidence that Ms Khan had been involved in leaking any sensitive government information. "

It’s a wonder Dom didn’t have her tarred & feathered.

Saw this and thought…“Must be Hong Kong or perhaps Paris”…definitely NOT Glasgow.

“…The planned march (Irish Unity march) through Govan, by the James Connolly Republican Flute Band, was met by hundreds of “disruptive” counter demonstrators.”

Sounds a little crazy to me…Irish Unity isn’t even their problem. They should be rioting over Scottish independence… right?!


#3018

Well… sectarianism in Scotland and in particular Glasgow is still there… There’s a “tradition” of marching by the Loyal Orange Order and also the Republican James Connolly Society just to name the main ones… and there is usually trouble associated with those in the evenings.

There’s about 400 faith schools in Scotland (mainly Catholic) and that’s about 8% of the total… unfortunately, the Scottish Government has no plans to roll back religious schools… just as in the UK… despite the fact that 2/3 of Scots are not religious. These faith schools stoke up the issues just as they do in NI… for most people there religion plays no part in how they live their lives.
Equally, the Old Firm matches stoke it up as it isn’t a Catholic v Protestant thing… few give a shit abut that… it is far more that Celtic is associated with Republicanism and Rangers with Loyalism… historic reasons… just as in NI. I can’t remember watching an Old Firm match (not that I’ve been to one for many months) where there hasn’t been sectarian songs/chants… but then you still get that at Spurs and the Gunners grounds… they just don’t show it on TV/carefully place microphones elsewhere.

It’s nowhere near as extensive an issue as in NI… but it is definitely there.


#3019

Its a byproduct of a GOV and campaign promoting hate and division…

Same as Racists think the EU is to blame for Pakistani criminals in Yorkshire… ag EDL…

"The US has imposed fresh tariffs on $112bn (£92bn) of Chinese imported goods such as shoes, nappies and food.

The new tariffs are a sharp escalation in the bruising trade war, and could cost households $800 a year."
##########################################
I really cannot see what Trump is hoping to achieve. Putting tariffs on Chinese goods costs US voters more. Does he realise he’s up for re-election next year?
