  1. I've done some pretty stupid things myself on occasion, and I'm allegedly much smarter than your average bear. I don 't think humans are a particularly smart species. The example you give seems to match a pattern which I think may be increasing, though. I see a growing tendancy for people to look for external causes and solutions to their problems rather than do ing something themselves. Not having a key fails to even trigger "why not?" or "how can I get one?", the default behaviour is "make enough fuss and 'someone' will fix it".
  2. I don't think we can ever reach a complete answer, but suffiicient: maybe. It's a pretty good start point. Of course, it somewhat begs the question of what is "right".
  3. Yeah, I've looked in a few times over the last couple of years and seen nowt, so I went away again. In key news, I aten't ded.
  4. Yeah, because complete annihilation would have so helped all the ordinary Egyptians who had nothing to do with the decision.
  5. I know you don't. I was pointing out that atheism is not the inevitable outcome.From the passages quoted above (and others), it is a reasonable possibility that God exists and is a complete **.
  6. I had a quick look at the FAQ, but spotted nothing there. I'm not sure that there is such a document. You could try asking via
  7. One interesting view I heard was that the individual insects were largely automata, but that the hive (/swarm/colony) had some degree of intelligence. On another note, I believe bacteria (and probably other microorganisms) vastly outnumber the insects.
  8. Welcome to the forum Waylander. You are unlikely to get a response in a topic this old where the previous contributors are no longer around. There is a UK forum which might be of interest. There is an unwanted bit of code on this site which makes it hard to format the link, but I managed it here.
  9. Which is non-responsive. What evidence would you accept?
  10. There is a lot of evidence. What would you consider objective proof?
  11. I believe Crypto Kirby are scammers. Please be careful.
  12. Note that in order to be able to say that journeys have declined since lockdown they were already tracking your movements beforehand.
  13. It was intended firmly tongue-in-cheek as a response to I wouldn't actually wish harm on anyone.
  14. Yeah, I avoid that, too. It's not paranoia if they really are out to track you.
  15. It doesn't need to. Once the government decide that all your data belongs to them the tracks can be compared centrally for any person of interest. It's harder, so they're quite happy to have people install their own self-targeting app, but it can be done.
  16. Even a "dumb" phone can track you. It needs to "know" where it is and report that so that incoming calls go to the right towers. I've never had a mobe except for work, and that got de-batteried as soon as my shift ended.
  17. In the beginning was the word. And the word we "meh".
  18. De-Athe is the end of everything. For the mathematically inclined, 666 is a triangular number, being equal to the sum of the first 36 (6X6) whole numbers. Perhaps we should form a cabal to research Athematics.
  19. Or as it says in my kitchen: "Eight legs good, six legs bad".
