      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. India cancels 150 coal power stations

    Grey smog, eyes red and the insides of my nostrils black.
  2. Monsanto is killing you

    Good find..
  3. Absolutely right. What about the luffers flapping about?
  4. India cancels 150 coal power stations

    I was in Delhi a few months back and the pollution was not only very bad but also very visible. News said it was due to neighboring states burning residues in harvested fields but Delhi does contribute a lot and isn't healthy any time of the year.

  5. India cancels 150 coal power stations

    Or maybe it was due to to the cancellation of over 200 coal block allocations by the Supreme Court of India in September 2014. https://scroll.in/article/835288/stumbling-blocks-centre-does-not-have-much-to-show-for-its-coal-block-allocations @Saorsa Your data is old, Indias production surpasses local demand and solar is still cheaper.... the problem with Indian coal is that its mainly lignite and bituminous (more pollution) and a lot of plants are made to run on better quality coal that it imports mainly from Australia. https://energy.economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/coal/centre-searching-for-new-domestic-coal-consumers/58189255
  6. Many Trump supporters are skimmed milk from skinny cow types, there are quite a few of the racist/bigot persuasion and then there are those who have been indoctrinated usually as children usually using religion to believe by faith alone. Everything is black and white, their beliefs are right and they fight the evidence in front of their eyes. Anything contradictory is a trick/temptation to overcome and proselytizing for some is a way to save sinners like @Bus Driver @benwynn @Ed Lada @Ishmael who are already damned to hell. It isn't cheery picking, the filter does the job subconsciously. Understand and sympathize, don't "mock" the poor broken child.
  7. Tom and Jeff's spank bank.

    WTF is your occupation or is it just decoration?
  8. India cancels 150 coal power stations

    Well they have the money to buy space in "Trump" branded towers and access to Trump Jr, maybe enough to influence daddy to help make India great again for them too. Jr tends to crop up as a middleman, I recall something with Russians and emails...

    Indians are buying access to Trump Jn to help Make It Great Again
  10. India cancels 150 coal power stations

    How about $1500 for a system designed to deliver 1kWH per day @ 4PSH + installation of course which I think you got tourist rates for
  11. India cancels 150 coal power stations

    I wonder where that money is going? Dated I know but as an example it'll do... Attack and heavy-lift helicopters: In 2015, India ordered $3.1 billion worth of 22 Boeing AH-64E Apache Longbow attack helicopters and 15 Chinook heavy-lift choppers. The deliveries are likely to begin in 2019. Boeing beat off competition from Russia, which had offered its Mi-28N Night Hunter helicopter gunship and the Mi-26 heavy-lift choppers to the IAF. The Chinooks will plug a crucial gap in the IAF’s heavy-lift capabilities as it currently relies on a solitary Mi-26 chopper to carry payloads to high altitudes. The IAF also urgently requires new attack helicopters. http://www.hindustantimes.com/india-news/shelling-out-on-defence-7-weapon-systems-india-is-buying-to-build-its-military-muscle/story-ZJ3QAoMfncQeeXivd8UutO.html

    In 2017 India received 92 million from US 1 and India gave Bhutan 860 million in 2016 2 and 581 million in 2017 3 . India's aid to other countries is more than it receives 4. Most aid received from US goes to NGOs, the government received about 736K . How much does Trumps weekend golf cost?

    You are thinking small...think os small and medium sized businesses getting these offers.. Solar plants for all types of business are avaliable with no initial investment. Buy the electricity at a discounted price till you pay off the agreed cost, no costs of running or upgrading. On site and offsite. 10-15 yrs of nearly free electricity once paid off. Whats not to like? https://www.google.co.in/search?client=ms-android-samsung&source=android-browser&dcr=0&ei=GpJjWsiYMcbdvATM0oDYBA&sjs=3&q=zero+investment+solar+plant+india&oq=zero+investment+solar+plant+india&gs_l=mobile-gws-serp.12...

    Did I mention the price is already cheaper? https://amp.theguardian.com/environment/2017/may/10/indian-solar-power-prices-hit-record-low-undercutting-fossil-fuels
  15. Pending US Govt Shutdown

    Trump is running the country like a reality show he knows there's got to be drama. He has to supply his base with their fix and talking points they can truly believe unlike the fake news. Reality is irrelevant, the show must go on or the curtains fall.
