  1. He doesn't keep up on Poland obviously. NATO has been strengthening defence of the gap since December. Orzysz is sort of at the bottom of a long flat bit of ground going all the way up to Latvia (I think) and some Polish military types have said if they defend Russia can be held off til reinforcements arrive. If they lose it to a blitz attack then Warsaw will have fallen in a couple of days and the reinforcements are likely to take two weeks. The NATO strengthening was being planned way back when I was in Poland so it is not in response to the recent Belarus thing.
  2. He believes the McCain caused the Forrestal? That is a level of website he is trusting which is even more off the beaten track than normal...
  3. Apparently Medved is getting the site flagged as malware by his work browser.
  4. He is still using that "NASA said" line when the article quite clearly says the opposite. I wonder if any of his readers actually click the links when he has them.
  5. heh.
  6. First of all work out what you do currently. Then work out why you do it. So "what you do" is the actual thing you do, not your job title. Like the things people / you think you do well. In my case for example I believe the reason people hire me is because I solve problems. Why you do it may boil down to "for money" but may also be because it is something you enjoy doing, because you seek approval from others or whatever. So then work out if what you do is specific to an industry or can be used in many industries. So now you know what you do, why you do it at your current place of employ and whether you can change your current place to a different industry or different company.
  7. " The majority are generally fools. " " as if the people are just fools who are clueless and do not really know what they are demanding. " Certainly seems Armstrong can't decide what they are.
  8. "by exploiting security flaws to access text and voice messages EVEN before they’re encrypted. " Well with that emphasis he obviously has no idea what he is talking about. Which is a bit of a concern really as he at least is pretending to care. Therefore very few people even have the faintest clue as to what this means and so it won't be stopped.
  9. 1. Immigrants to Australia historically improve the GDP if I remember correctly. Cutting immigration, if that is correct, would therefore be a bad idea. You just want better immigrants (Japan has just done this and people are saying "what difference will an extra ten thousand a year make". I laugh at this thinking what would an extra 10K high income people mean). 2. Regional cities are hard but if you have 10K doctors and engineers coming in each year and you push them out to the regional cities I am sure you would be fine. Trying to create regional cities with the people that want to leave those cities seems unlikely to succeed.
  10. " Everyone knows I am very cautious not to get involved in conspiracy theories " ahahahahahahaha everything he writes is about bloody conspiracies.
  11. All irrelevant. To defend against the charge would cost more than the fine. Who would fight it? like an IP shakedown really if they wanted to.
  12. Unreasonably implies value based decision, 5K is a lawyer for a few hours. They could get away with enforcing it just for sh*ts and giggles, raise the coffers and all.
  13. Data Science looks like being the same as network admin in the late 90's Lot's of enthusiastic people with enough skills to really make a mess of it. The number of people that ask me about designs they have come up with that are just startlingly sh*t is incredible.
  14. First bit of contracting is the hardest. After that you have a network and things are easier. I doubt the market will make much of a difference to that really.
  15. That would be an errant assumption. I assume when he gets things right his fans will trumpet it.
  16. No idea. I would assume whichever is cheapest unless China is banning renmimbi use on SWIFT or something. But my bank in singapore does renmimbi in & out now so I am assuming the rules changed a few months back.
  17. While I agree completely with Armstrongs thoughts on Japan joining CIPS (and not abandoning SWIFT - which has to be retarded, does anyone actually think that or is it a strawman?) I have to point out that his statement about "credit cards wouldn't work in the west" misses a key point: many / most Japanese people just don't have/use credit cards. Amazon japan accepts payment at your local convenience store on delivery. Paying all your bills in cash at the local 7/11 (lawson, circle K whatever) is what almost everyone does. For the Olympics they are trying to force places into accepting credit cards. For a lot of places I am unsure as to whether that will work.
  18. Purfect for a dog. Pretty sure you're doing that wrong...
  19. Yep that is probably true with jobs, seems fairly unlikely to me for anyone to do that but maybe 4 years is a short enough period that the automation impact won't be felt. Does seem to be coming apace though. With Lenin I am not sure the comparison holds that well.
  20. That would seem foolish, knowing your enemy is most of the battle. If your opponent is a constitutional professor then it is very unlikely he would do it illegally. More likely he is just going to cause the massive collapse that I am hoping to see through political pressure and destroy the hard core right people in a completely legal manner.
  21. Isn't the OFA that he describes and the articles he links to just describing someone setting up another political party in effect? Does anyone know what the threat is or is supposed to be?
  22. Anyone else noticed he doesn't have his trademark typos in either the letters sent to him or the replies anymore? There seems to be a lot more incoherent stuff as well where there is an article where the top half has google search exact phrase matches with other news outlets and then the bottom just doesn't quite click? The Civil unrest killing france article would be a decent example. The top half is clearly written in an anti establishment style and the the bottom half seems to be trying to say that the youth are going mental for other reasons. Like it was two radically different people writing the article. Kind of cool to sit on the sidelines watching it happen really. I am hoping for a secret world government having taken over his site article coming soon.
  23. probably what you meant. I actually thought I linked that article here a few months back when they did it but maybe I just meant to.
  24. ahahaha _that_ f*ckup surely wasn't from his blomberg or whatever aggregator: Why is he making so many ridiculous mistakes all of a sudden?
  25. I am off on a 6 week holiday and came down with my first sickness in a couple of years the night before last
