Re: European refugee crisis thread

Well, there does seem to be an increase in the problem linked with immigrants / refugees. Östersund, Sweden is cancelling Earth Hour because of a wave of attacks associated with foreigners. [via Google Translate]<snip> That's from the website of the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. Yes. And ...

Re: European refugee crisis thread

Sweden is the petrie dish experiment that will reveal the results of that hypothesis, that is of course if they don't cover it up . Although I would agree that the word 'common' isn't the correct term, but there will be an increase. The cover-up was stupid, but according to all evidence limited to ...

Re: Microsoft is forcing users to upgrade to Windows 10

Broomstick's example rings true for me: after moving house, I'm forced to rely on a spotty wifi connection, with lots of transmission errors. I don't fancy doing an md5 on files every other hour or so just because Microsoft fell in love with a buzzword, nor do I want the potential congestion those f...

Re: European refugee crisis thread

The conspiracy theory that Eleas raised earlier in this thread hinting that their polling numbers are the result of fraud must be considered very implausible in the light of this. I see you have yet to discover truthfulness, comicalstorm. All that was pointed out was that YouGov reputedly had a his...

Re: European refugee crisis thread

And another hearty helping of conspiracy bullshit and non-answers. I swear, this is like arguing with a spam bot. Since the article still doesn't say anything about a "decision to close the bridge", that kinda makes you a fucking liar once more. Had the idea that they "changed their mind" been anyth...

Re: European refugee crisis thread

Yes, it's semantics. Actual semantics. Which means "the study of how words differ ." Ineptly, you seem to want to say that I'm quibbling about words that mean the same, but that's manifestly untrue: words have meaning. Yours massively distort the actual position of people, always in a full-on shit-f...

No, you dishonest piece of shit. You said that they "announced they are considering a closure of the Oresunds-bridge." When what they announced was a petition to open up the legal possibility of closing the Öresund bridge temporarily in future crises. And then only for car traffic. Your reading of t...

Re: Freespace 2: Greatest game ever made?

Freespace 1 never grabbed me, tbh. I remember playing it and getting the lowdown on the Shivans in the info database long before they actually entered the plot. It just never felt like I was actually a pilot on a carrier like Wing Commander did. Freespace 2 was in most respects a massive improvement...

Re: European refugee crisis thread

Swedens reckless open borders politics is ended. We are signatories to the EHCR, and thus bound to accept refugees in ways the Swedish state now refuses to entertain. A state that, lest we forget, profits handsomely from many factors that have and continue to significantly contribute to their pligh...

Re: European refugee crisis thread

The Swedish blog Punschverandan has an interesting angle on the issue. I'll try to condense a few of his points into short, pithy paragraphs. The bold-facing is my own. Today, though, I want to aim the spotlight away from tax evasion and racist rhetoric. What I'd like us to remember is a general pri...

Re: European refugee crisis thread

No, in point of fact they'd last longer. If you have 10,000 immigrants per week, and you have 25,000 apartments, that means 40,000 people slotted into 25,000 apartments. Now while I'm no mathematician, I don't think it's unreasonable to entertain the idea of concentrating families of refugees denser...

Re: European refugee crisis thread

Once again, cosmicalstorm 's translations leave much to be desired. In 2011, almost 25000 flats stood empty . There is no indication that this has been mitigated. Just like the area where the now cleared Roma camp stood, that has and will continue to stand vacant and unused for anything productive. ...

Re: European refugee crisis thread

We have people on Facebook who gleefully describe how they made these refugees' lives more miserable. I don't think it unfair to attribute malice to them.
