    yes you can - it may be cr@p but it will run. The internet and social media are, however, a different, problem.

    The stupid will always need the time to be told they are being stupid. Otherwise they will BE stupid. That appears to be a FACT. And their stupidity will kill the rest of us unless we can counter it effectively. I haven't heard any really good idea on how to effectively do that. Other than shut down social media for about 5 years (Seriously). For me I'd rather go down in flames or bullets than live in a place forged by stupidity where some prick like Putin poisons you because you annoy him.

    You leave out a fairly sinister part about all this mess ...

    if you and I are friends on Facebook (impossible, since I'm not on Facebook) and I keep looking at and tagging, liking Nancy Pelosi stuff,etc (not that I would - I'd be more Chris Hedges or Richard Wolff), and you post a sincere message by Donald J Aristotle as I like to call him, since there is really no human mind who can approach his deity ... it will not be pushed to me.
    That's the problem which basically is killing your hopeful solution unless it changes ...
    They are designed to send reinforcing cr@p at people ...

    They are zeroing on Pennsylvania as the b@stards, actually, seriously did this - the Trump campaign filed a lawsuit to insist that Penn voters put the ballot into the blank envelope (this secures anonymity) and then seal that in the mail-in envelope. Penn Supreme Court a few days ago ruled that the elector can throw out votes that don't come in this way.

    My bet is that most voters would prefer their anonymity to be fvcked than lose thier vote ...... Scum-B@stard_Scum
    God I hope their is a special place in Stilton;s Hell of Hell's for b@stardhead (trump) when he expires ....
    He is the rottenest human in history, and the worst enemy of the United States - duplicitous in every damn word...
    If you know anyone in Penn. Particularly Philadelphia - Call them and impress this upon them and tell them to impress their friends this new FACT.
    I am of my own accord calling people in the philadelphia phone book to help notify about this. If you have time, do it too.

    God almighty - if people knew they had to run such tests then there wouldn't be the need for such critical tests......

    It's the vehicle that is the problem.

    meanwhile, back on earth, this sounds very encouraging ....

    Four Covid-19 sniffer dogs have begun work at Helsinki airport in a state-funded pilot scheme that Finnish researchers hope will provide a cheap, fast and effective alternative method of testing people for the virus.

    A dog is capable of detecting the presence of the coronavirus within 10 seconds and the entire process takes less than a minute to complete, according to Anna Hielm-Björkman of the University of Helsinki, who is overseeing the trial.

    “It’s very promising,” said Hielm-Björkman. “If it works, it could prove a good screening method in other places” such as hospitals, care homes and at sporting and cultural events.

    I never said the portion of my quote that you have underlined. You added that in. Perhaps you should indicate as much?

    There is no arguing in a calm manner. Q said it. And that is that.

    You have as much chance trying to convince someone their religion is the wrong one.

    Well, I'm open to another faith. The whole sacrificing-a-virgin-goat thing is running up the budget.

    Hang on-
    I wasn't ascribing (or trying to ascribe) that statement to you. I was just simply saying that I felt the same about Coutinho's sale as you did about Torres (I think it was he.)

    My apologies. I hadn't been on this site for a few days, and so I tend to post a string of responses to stuff as I read down the thread, and so I clog it a bit, and stuff prob gets skipped over that I post. So, I bolded that bit to get it to stand out, not realizing at the time that you could possibly think I was bolding it as a seeming part of what you said.

    Sorry about that. I bolded a bit of your quote to relate it to a particular bit of mine which I also bolded.
    But I didn't in any sense wish to try to posit that text as though you had said it - you just happened to read it that way. That's not really my fault, as I did bold it for a fairly good reason - but I do apologize for the issue created.

    I understand the psychology, but my idea is the best attempt to do a little good... if you keep asking why (in the case of my argument) any one of these 'deadlines' passed without Q's genius predictions coming to actual fruition then you do some measurable good, is all I am saying.

    But Sh!t - yeah - I totally agre with you that arguing with morons like that - I would never be suggesting that.
    I'm just suggesting that I think it is actually imperative and incumbent upon all of us faced with this nonsense (that you have it within your wherewithal) where you can just pick a factual instance, and deny the attempted relation of all things which happen to be unrelated to that particular instance, while you point out the incorrectness of that particular meme.

    Hey - I'm not suggesting it to annoy you - I'm suggesting that it might be our only last hope of rational continuance......

    I found one where you can use a fly. Dead cheap, and actually more gratifying as I hate insects ... ;)
    (well, not all insects, I love bees and ladybirds, have a certain respect for ants, and think some spiders are co-habitable in my home....) but insects like big dirty flies, and other bug eyed things like the Trumps I could live with the extinction of
