RE: Go away and shut up

The use of this nerve agent was the point of the message. How much does a bullet cost? a qiud maybe?
This was a much harder event to carry out. I think the message of this act was "if you spy against us, you will pay the price."
I don't believe this was someone else trying to stir trouble. Vladimir Putin couldn't care less that the world thinks it was him.
He's probably delighted

Just seen this Motorola-

RE: [VIDEO] The Baby Cage

I saw this on QI once, but they were saying they were used in New York.
I guess any children that had been in one of those regularly wouldn't be afraid of heights.....

RE: [VIDEO] mobile phone recommendation please

It got one update to android 7 I think. Also minor updates. My banking app was ok. Also, Android Pay worked fine.
I don't have it anymore, not because I wasn't happy with it, but because I dropped it. Now has a cracked screen but a family member is using it as they never buy a new phone.
I now have a Lenovo P2. Brilliant battery but the 6x had a much better finger print scanner.

RE: [VIDEO] mobile phone recommendation please

Sorry, I didn't know the Honor 6x was that much, I'm sure I paid about £170.

Have a look at the Honor 6x also. NFC, good battery life, & the best finger scanner I've used. Great screen too.
Got mine from GearBest in China.

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

Donald Trump Attacks Alec Baldwin In Early Morning Twitter Rant Amid Week Of Chaos
Trump misspelled Baldwin's name twice in the unhinged rant.

President Donald Trump took a break from dealing with turmoil in his administration to once again lash out at actor Alec Baldwin in an early-morning Twitter rant.

Earlier this week, Baldwin told The Hollywood Reporter that portraying Trump on “Saturday Night Live” had become “like agony.”

“Anybody over this guy,” said Baldwin. “It doesn’t matter. We have to get rid of him.”

Baldwin’s comments apparently struck a nerve for Trump, whose administration is reeling from a string of setbacks this week, including the departure of one of his closest confidants, Hope Hicks. He’s also under fire for appearing to cave to the NRA just a day after he promised to tackle gun control.

The president responded to Baldwin’s comments with a rambling error-strewn post, in which he twice misspelled the actor’s name, as well as the word “dying.”

Trump also urged “SNL” to bring back Darrell Hammond, who portrayed the then-reality star on the show until 2016.

The tweet remained live for around 10 minutes before it was deleted. Trump quickly replaced it with this correctly spelled post:

Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony. Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch. Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent!

Hammond is yet to respond, but Baldwin hit back first with this tweet:
Agony though it may be, I’d like to hang in there for the impeachment hearings, the resignation speech, the farewell helicopter ride to Mara-A-Lago. You know. The Good Stuff. That we’ve all been waiting for.

In a further burn, Baldwin then imagined what Trump’s Presidential Library will look like:

Looking forward to the Trump Presidential Library.
A putting green.
Recipes for chocolate cake.
A live Twitter feed for visitors to post on.
A little black book w the phone numbers of porn stars.
You’re in and out in five minutes.
Just like...

Criticizing Baldwin has become something of a habit for Trump. He repeatedly tore into Baldwin over his SNL portrayal during the 2016 election campaign, and has been taking regular shots at the actor ever since.

RE: Snow Watch 2018

Snaps, I still remember my first dog (&only dog) reaction to snow. He was a big daft Labrador. He was skipping & jumping, licking the snow as it fell. Took ages to get him to come inside. Making me smile just thinking about him :-)

Woke up to snow in London but it's melted already. Still lightly snowing now but melting as it lands.

RE: [VIDEO] Classic comedy

I've seen the "who's on first" sketch so many times I wasn't going to press play but I'm glad I did. I haven't laughed that much for a long time, even though I knew what was coming.
Thanks Snaps :)

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

"Political scientists rank Trump last, Lincoln first in presidential greatness survey"

(CNN) Former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan enjoyed upward bumps in their greatness rankings, while President Donald Trump was ranked historically low, according to a presidential "greatness" survey released Monday.

The 2018 Presidents and Executive Politics Presidential Greatness Survey, released Monday, was based on 170 usable responses from current and former members of the American Political Science Association's presidents and executive politics section.

The survey asked the presidential experts to use a 0-100 scale "for overall greatness," with zero being failure, 50 being average and 100 being great. Roughly 57% of the respondents were Democrats, 13% were Republicans and 27% were independents (3% selected "Other").
Overall, Trump came in dead last. The seven greatest presidents, according to respondents, remained unchanged from the same survey's results in 2014, the previous time it was taken. In order, they were Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, Harry S. Truman and Dwight Eisenhower.

Trump did not fare well even when parsing the results by party and ideology. He ranked 40th out of 44 among Republicans and conservatives.

Self-identified Republicans and conservatives also ranked Washington above Lincoln as the all-time greatest president.

Among all those surveyed, another commander-in-chief who struggled in his rank: Bill Clinton, who fell to 13th best after being ranked eighth in 2014.

Obama came in eighth, up 10 spots from 18th in 2014. George W. Bush moved up five spots, from 35th to 30th. Reagan also moved into the top 10, ranking ninth. In 2014, he was at 11.

Political science professors Brandon Rottinghaus of the University of Houston and Justin S. Vaughn of Boise State University authored and published the survey.

From here-

What I like about this is that, 1 it will drive Tango face up the wall with rage, & 2, after one year of Trump, George Bush has jumped up 5 place's. Just when you thought the bottom of the barrel had been reached, along comes the tiny handed slaphead and people are looking back kindly on W.

RE: [VIDEO] DIY dot matrix printer

I can't believe the pencil didn't smash into pieces judging by the violent noise the printing made.
It's interesting, but the person who built it really needs to get out more.

RE: ANOTHER mass shooting in America

It's happened again. At least 17 dead at a school.

"18th shooting in a US school so far this year."

Yeah right. And the wheelbarrow full of money had NOTHING to do with it.

RE: [VIDEO] Nintendo Switch announced

Even by Nintendo's standards, this is really weird. Plus, at £70 for cardboard, it's bloody expensive.

Harry Potter fan made film

On was on the US Huffington Post website and read about a fan made Harry Potter movie "Voldemort: Origins Of The Heir".
It's impressive stuff and well worth a look if you are a fan.

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

"On Wednesday, in response to Trump’s tweet about the size and potency of his nuclear button, 100 mental-health professionals signed their names to a statement reading, “We believe that he is now further unraveling in ways that contribute to his belligerent nuclear threats … We urge that those around him, and our elected representatives in general, take urgent steps to restrain his behavior and head off the potential nuclear catastrophe that endangers not only Korea and the United States but all of humankind.”

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

Very interesting article based on the new book about Trump's White House, Fire & Fury by Michael Wolff. .
It's a long read but worth a look.

RE: Happy New Year

Happy New Year all.
Let's hope we get to see Trump impeached in 2018! :)

Christmas message

Just wanted to wish everyone here a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. :)

"I like him, bit too left wing for me at times"
I would have said he was more of a Liberal rather than left wing but he would (& has) ridiculed Labour if he thinks they have done something ridiculous.
