The Israelis are much more pragmatic and cost effective than the Americans in their anti-terror tactics, they do what works and try to get the most bang for their buck.

That's curious, I was sure that the Palestinian people were resorting to asymmetrical warfare to try and protect themselves against Israeli aggression, and/or to assault Israel.

Doesn't sound like the anti-terror tactics are being very effective at all.

So a 54 year old missile system is no match for a 39 year old airframe? Despite heroically being used to take down a modern missile and successfully downing a stealth bomber?

Shit, your bullshit was obvious the moment you used the term 'zionist' to describe the Israeli airforce. Do try and at least pretend to have some semblance of objectivity.

At this moment, the Israelis have indicated a willingness to accept anything short of losing sovereignty over the bulk of the territory which they are currently considered to be sovereign in order to attain peace.

Israeli settlements in occupied territory prove your lies. Those settlements continue to be an ongoing and direct provocation.

If the Israelis remove their settlements from the West Bank and return that land to the Palestinians they'd have significantly more credibility when bleating on about peace.

Your paranoia is extreme, and I already have private data hosted on servers in foreign countries.

I haven't broken the law to do this.

If HMRC want to investigate my tax affairs, they can ask me for all relevant information. Where I personally store that information is not relevant, whether I provide it to them is.

If it's a foreign company then how it it beholden to laws in a jurisdiction in which it doesn't operate? And why should it care?

If they provide the tin but you install the software and add the data, how is it their responsibility irrespective of jurisdiction?

Why do you think you have to rent a server anyway?

Man, you're trying to state that all OTR Drivers (myself included) are doing mass amounts of speed, thus causing wrecks?

No, he's pointing out that the ones that did, caused a fuckload of accidents.

How much have you addled your brain on that shit, that you misinterpret someone to that extent?

Problem is, he's only one of a number of politicians in a position to push through bans on driving diesel cars in cities.

The city near me is considering this too. I need to write to them and let them know that if my efficient relatively clean diesel gets banned then I can only afford a very old petrol engined car, and since a second car needs to have practical value I'll go for a 4x4. Lets see them argue a 12 year old 4 litre SUV is better for the environment than my existing vehicle..

Under current law, I have a choice. Under European or Russian law, I don't.

I like to have the choice.

Under UK (and so probably European) law you do have the choice.

The companies sucking in all your data and abusing it do not. This is a good thing.

But feel free to put your own data anywhere you like. Nobody's stopping you posting your private information onto a server in every continent.

Any more stupid questions?

Yes. When connecting the board on my cat's harness to a network would you recommend letting the cat drag the ethernet cable behind it or should I program a drone to hover above the cat and route the cable via that?

Could you also advise on a drone silent enough to not distract the cat or its prey?

Yes, we will be going to OSI, Mars, and Pluto, but not necessarily in that order. -- Jeffrey Honig
