  1. Re: Erdogan warns oil companies against drilling in... Cyprus

    ^I think some of the turkish population actually buys all of the garbage Erdogan spews, and thinks Turkey is too big to fail or something like that. Or that they aren't another 2nd tier military...
  2. Re: Erdogan warns oil companies against drilling in... Cyprus

    Like I said, POVgun, no need to worry. Unless Turkey actually isn't able to go against everyone else.
    Pretty sure it can do it, so keep calm & continue.
  3. Re: Erdogan warns oil companies against drilling in... Cyprus

    Well, on the one hand we have the Eu, and two days ago the seven leaders of the south Eu countries, stating Greece and Cyprus have an EEZ and Turkey is acting illegally as usual.
    On the other we...
  4. Re: Jo Brand did nothing wrong, but the BBC and police did.

    With so many acid attacks in London, I doubt anyone actually needed Jo Brand if they were to use acid against a politician.
  5. Re: Erdogan warns oil companies against drilling in... Cyprus

    Yes, given Greece is all of the south Euro countries, anyway, as was shown in the common announcement just these days.
    It would be logical for Erdogan to back down, but he is a lunatic, so he will...
  6. Re: Erdogan warns oil companies against drilling in... Cyprus

    I think the only thing to love here is how all this is due to Erdogan. The future is bright.

    Re: Chernobyl (2019)

    Well, tbh HBO presented real historical figures (notably Gorbachev) is a rather glaringly cartoonish way. It isn't realistic to think that Gorbachev was a cretin, as he is in this show.

  15. Re: Tucker Carlson: "almost every nation on Earth has fallen under the yoke of tyranny — the metric system"

    At least european measuring standards had to make some sense (be tied to obvious things) so that there would be common use. Another example is Celsius, where 0 is the point water freezes and 100...

  23. Re: John Cleese: London doesn't feel like an English city anymore. Legitimate to prefer some cultures over others

    Something the posters who haven't lived in the UK may not be aware about is that up to 20 years ago british tv used to be extremely non-pc. As in often openly insulting (imo not good). With the...
  24. Re: John Cleese: London doesn't feel like an English city anymore. Legitimate to prefer some cultures over others

  27. Re: John Cleese: London doesn't feel like an English city anymore. Legitimate to prefer some cultures over others

    Indeed knife attacks (as Conon also stated) require either the element of surprise or skill with knives (else you will end up dead :D )

  29. Re: John Cleese: London doesn't feel like an English city anymore. Legitimate to prefer some cultures over others

    As Cookiegod noted, acid is also used because of the specific effects it has. An acid attack is almost impossible to kill you, but it can very easily leave you horribly deformed. Also, it takes zero...
  30. Re: John Cleese: London doesn't feel like an English city anymore. Legitimate to prefer some cultures over others

    Britain run a global empire. When a number of the colonies became independent, a lot of locals who were loyal to Britain had to emigrate there (unless they didn't mind a purge).
    So it isn't like the...
  31. Re: John Cleese: London doesn't feel like an English city anymore. Legitimate to prefer some cultures over others

    Well, London has far more foreigners than the other UK cities. This is nothing new; it was like that already 20 years ago (when I lived there as a university student). Yes, it can create some...
