    Regarding genders, do they hve to have 31 different toilets at workspaces? In Sweden we have han (he), hon (she) och hen (gender neutral) but I think it's OK if someone want to use other terms. And I don't know, I don't generally think about anyone in gender terms, more in terms of what they...

    3.1 was kind of nice.I remember installing it on a Pentium 120 MHz with 24 MB RAM on a really small partition on the very edge of a HDD, it was really, flying but I had no use for it at the time. And, it also had a really good file manager. 🙂

    I do want to buy a used car

    Personally I would go with a used Toyota, like drunkenbastard suggested.They are good quality to begin with, they are boring = lower probability that they have been punished by aspiring F1/Indycar drivers. And smaller cars like the Corolla means less weight/less stress on the materials. Last...

    But Trumps Covid response was not fact based. It was more in line with the response of Bolsonaro of Brazil and Lukasjenko of Belarus. https://amp.theguardian.com/world/2021/jan/24/deborah-birx-trump-white-house-covid-deniers...

    My favourite, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, gives a quite detailed view into how some people are reasoning. Words matter. Also a pretty good analysis of the situation in USA, beginning around 18.57.

    I think it's almost natural that there are some problems before the production and supply chains are fully optimized when everything has gone so fast. I don't follow the daily reports, but priority group 1 is nursing homes, and they have all got their first shots now + the supply is enough for...

    DrunkenBastard, I am really happy if I am wrong on that one. We will see what the final investigation brings to the table. Otherwise I agree 100% with jtr1962, troublemakers exists everywhere. And left extremists are no better than right extremists.

    Well, perhaps John Sullivan just wanted to protest against Ted Cruz for example, who knows? And I suppose he would have attacked the Capitol even if he was alone against 300+ cops?

    Well, he did not actually say "go and kill some coppers", but the crowd went crazy after his speech. And the "trial by combat" remark from Giuliani did not help either. You just have to see it in the context of everything that has happened since November 3.

    Sorry tim, that was not good. I did not know that. Either way, I hope the second impeachment goes through even if it happens after his exit, so he is forbidden to run for office again and the US citizens don't have to use their tax dollars to fund his security and pension.
