Teflon has been known about since before it was released to the public. Money Trumps all.
Have a look at gortex as well and just about every other man made poison.

Might slow, or even stop sea level rise, which will be sold(yes, we’ll pay) to us as a positive.
That’s enough positives, here’s a more honest look at the future(3 years ::scream: ).


#244

Massive sea ice collapse in the heart of winter, but you get Ana Tijoux accompanying it, so not completely boring.

Errrm translation please @Saint-or-sinner

Nice music.

I have no idea what she’s saying. I’m shit at languages, but if you’re curious, here’s the lyrics.

Naci un dia de junio
Del año 77
Planeta mercurio
Y el año de la serpiente
Sin o patente
Tatuado y en mi frente
Que en el vientre de mi madre
Marcaba el paso siguiente
Me hace llorar
Sin anestesia en la camilla
Mi padre solo dijo es Ana Maria
Si seria el primer llanto
Que me probaría
Quemando las heridas
Y dándome la batería
Solía ser entonces como un libro abierto
Pero leí la letra pequeña del texto
Como un arquitecto
Construyendo cada efecto
Correcto, incorrecto, sé aprender todo al respecto
Saber que algunas personas
Queran el daño
Subir peldaño
Toma tiempo toma año
Con mi peluche mirando lo cotidiano
Dibujos transformaban
Y el invierno en gran verano
Papa me regalo bajo mi insistenso
Juego, trataba de culparte y recibencia
Pero en el cartu hicieron la competencia
Y fue cuando senti mi primera impotencia

1977 no me digan no
Que uno lo presiente
Todo lo que cambia lo hará diferente
En el año que nació la serpien

1977 no me digan no
Que uno lo presiente
Todo lo que cambia lo hará diferente
En el año que nació la serpien

Mi adolescencia
Fue una etapa bizarra
El cuerpo es batería
Y la cabeza guitarra
La orquesta narronato
Nada quebrada para la mirada
De una niña que solo talla espadas
Hormona disparada
Sobre poblada sin formas
En que cambian temporadas
Caminas en crucijadas
Cada cual es su morada
Preparaba la carnada
La sagrada diablada
De mirada encabronada
Mi fila la verdad
Nunca busco su silla
Mi búsqueda fue mero
Proceso de pura pila
Pupila de poeta
Que marco nuestra saliba
En la cordillera que miraba la salida
La parada militar de paso monótono
Colores policromolos
Uniformes de poco tono
Detono mi cuestionamento
La voz si sonó no
Mi primera rima que sonó
Y me enrrolo
Mi búsqueda no fue para mi cosa de escenario
Fue algo necesario
Que marcaba ya mi fallo
Así que todas
Mas de lo necesario
Fue cuando entendí
Que todos quieren ser corsario

1970

1977 no me digan no
Que uno lo presiente
Todo lo que cambia lo hará diferente
En el año que nació la serpien

1977 no me digan no
Que uno lo presiente
Todo lo que cambia lo hará diferente
En el año que nació la serpien

Good typing

I’ll pop it into google translate then

:lou_wink:


#248

Good piss taking :joy:
It’d take me a good hour to do that.


#249

Please tell me you know how to copy and paste.


#250

@pap , as management you should really have someone to do that sort of thing for you.

You do, don’t you?


#251

Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V is a helluva lot easier than being the sort of plum that has to call someone across the office to say “Hallo, can you copy and paste this for me please?”


#252

Why are you even logged on?

You now have people to do computer stuff for you while you are working out the odds on the winner in the 3pm at Wincanton from the comfort of trap2 of the executive’s bogs surely?

After being online for nearly 25 years I’m still revealing the Cut’n’Paste shortcut to people who view it as some form of mysterious witchcraft. :lou_facepalm_2:

Some great comedy figures in here that shows our illustrious Government have got their priorities completely and utterly wrong - as always (& some of them are most likely benefiting financially along the way).

Good work in getting CO2,reductions though.

At least we’ll have wasp free summer picnics and no midges in Scoot-land.

Do pubic lice count as insects? Asking for a friend like…

Only looking for the positives…

Is that the same as this fluff* piece?
Plummeting insect numbers ‘threaten collapse of nature’


*I say fluff piece without reading either, as i got as far as the headline

Plummeting insect numbers ‘threaten collapse of nature’

And all i wonder is, how long they had been in a coma for. But i persevered(as far as the next line).

Exclusive: Insects could vanish within a century at current rate of decline, says global review

That’s been massively watered down then. They’ve all but gone already. Who remembers insect splatters on the windscreen when we were kids? Not one nowadays, ever. Germany has seen an over 80% decline in bees and the cycle is speeding up(look up methane emissions and ice, or the lack of).
We keep getting told a time frame that doesn’t impact on our selfish life’s and that bollocks to pacify the stupid into continuing the destruction.
We need to look at ourselves and how we’re programmed to act against our own survival.
My old favourite Norman Pagett gets mentioned in this(read his article they link) and even Gail Tverberg from https://ourfiniteworld.com/ gets a mention in the comments.

You can’t separate our addiction to energy and the problems we alone have created.

Pubic lice are a nuisance, but that’s just scratching the surface.
