    Just wait for Trump's Jerusalem recognition later this day, we're in for a fun time in the Middle East.

    They're useless anyway, eh? First May gets slammed by the DUP, now this.
    Brexit is the best, luckily we still have more than a year of fun. :coffee:

    New Year's Eve party in Berlin to have 'safe zone' for women
    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-42502984

    Organisers of Berlin's New Year's Eve celebrations are to set up a "safe zone" for women for the first time.

    The new security measures planned for the Brandenburg Gate party come amid concerns about sexual assaults.

    A large number of assaults and robberies targeting women at Cologne's New Year's Eve celebrations two years ago horrified Germany.

    Hundreds of women reported being attacked by gangs of men with migrant backgrounds.

    ...while conserving the term "hate" for where it is aptly applied.

    ...like to Conservativism.

    So a big women's only party area. Let's see how this goes. Will they even have migrants near this safe zone?

    Now the attackers know where to attack, and you got everyone rounded up for them.

    Last week, a ("mentally ill") refugee from Bangladesh mowed down 18-20 people in the middle of Melbourne, citing Muslim mistreatment as part of his motive. The oldest victim just died:

    I wish this guy that caused the death of a person (killed by SWAT team) gets at least 10 years in a maximum security prison. Fuck that retard. This causes a stain on the gaming community. It's the same as yelling "fire" in a crowded theater when there is no fire and people get hurt and/or killed

    Well, I guess it does not matter much to me and it is not as relevant as most of the news in this thread, but guess which country is now legally capable of fining social media sites for not censoring what is deemed "hate speech"?

    I will give you a hint:

    It's a 911 call. If the caller is anonymous, then you can't verify the caller or if they're telling the truth.

    To follow up on this having worked at a 911 center you're obligated(officers as well) to take what's said on the call as fact until proven otherwise. Yeah we can try to get more information or call back if they hang up, but if that doesn't pan out officers can only act on what they've been given.

    Hell even with repeat callers that just dial to sling bullshit have to be acted on unless an officer (usually a street supervisor) says otherwise.

    Like even with straight hangups and you don't even speak with someone if it gets a gps blip on the map they have to send an officer. No info, just check that area and anything can be happening or nothing at all.

    On NPR I heard it would take only 10,000 acres of grow all of the pot required by the U.S. market.

    Here's a source on how big the U.S. market may be ($10b to $40billion):
    https://www.cnbc.com/id/36179677

    Under the best conditions, an acre of weed is 2.6 million dollars:
    At a market value for outdoor cannabis at $1,000 a pound one could grow $60 worth per square foot…43,560 square feet per acre times $60 equals 2.6 million dollars

    That would take 7693 acres to produce $20b in crops.

    So 10,000 acres seems right with basic napkin math and nothing complicated.

    edit:
    Could also use this source, putting it at 1.1 million per acre. Doesn't change that ballpark 10k acres:
    https://newfrontierdata.com/marijuana-insights/comparative-yield-per-acre-for-grains-and-marijuana/
    /end edit

    Small time farmers and big companies are going to be growing lots of weed and the price will go down. Easy to start growing more than 10,000 acres in the U.S.

    U.S. and Australia will want to ship it globally to sell.

    The market will explode, then resize accordingly.

    Marijuana is approaching the Grapes of Wrath scenario, where big companies are going to take over and bully out many of the small farmers who are getting by.

    Any Canadians here? What is this stuff about changing law and the national anthem to "gender neutral"?


    "The law recognizes that everyone has the right to self-identify their gender and that “misgendering” is a form of discrimination." http://www.ohrc.on.ca/en/questions-and-answers-about-gender-identity-and-pronouns
    WTF!!!!

    Current version
    True patriot's love, in all thy sons commands

    Proposed new gender neutral pronoun version that's likely to pass
    True patriot's love, in all of us commands

    --

    I am surprised they didn't take the chance to remove God from the anthem too.
    God keep our land glorious and free

    The French version also contains lyrics like this
    "Car ton bras sait porter l'épée, Il sait porter la croix!"
    (For your arm knows how to wield the sword, Your arm knows how to carry the cross;)

    Remember Equifax hack last fall?

    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-equifax-cfpb/exclusive-u-s-consumer-protection-official-puts-equifax-probe-on-ice-sources-idUSKBN1FP0IZ

    To make matter worse; CFPB asked for zero dollar for 2018 budget.

    http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-cfpb-mulvaney-funding-20180118-story.html

    Does this new CFPB director NOT read/heard the whole Equifax breach? Or this was planned all along to stop the full-scale investigation that the initial director proposed/supported??
