The UK Brave Space For Shitposting and Other Opinions Thread

Recommended Posts

I love how some judge in the tin-horn, Third World shithole of Great Britain thought that he could disappear a British subject and then force the media to not report the fact that he was personally ordering a British subject to be disappeared. I guess he forgot he didn't live in East Germany. Yet. 

 

I love how the British legal system is more concerned about the "rights" of 49 Islamic fundamentalists who are being tried for grooming and raping 700 women and children than the freedom of the press. 

 

And in any FREE country, you have the right to stand in a public street and film what is going on outside of a court house. And if that includes filming 49 accused rapists who are walking on a public street to that court house, then so be it.

& I love how the British judicial system doesn't let racist morons prejudice a trial, thus offering an easy route to appeal (at not inconsiderable expense to the taxpayer) for 49 Islamic fundamentalists, who are being tried for grooming and raping 700 women and children.

 

Why not try refusing an improper order from one of your law enforcement officers and then tell me all about how fucking free you are.....Assuming you survive the experience of course.  :)

You do understand that there is a difference between a law enforcement officer giving an improper order and a law enforcement officer giving an improper order, the media being ordered to not report it and your fellow subjects telling you that you deserved it for stepping out of line.

Yeah, not being allowed to report on the identities of persons standing trial until after the verdict is actually pretty common. You know, in case it turns out that the accused is not, in fact, a rapist or whatever and you've just spend the last year publically vilifying an innocent person.

Here in Norway we have a famous case of a woman going on a nacht (after party, party) with 2-3 other guys and getting high on MDMA.  They had intercourse, and the woman later accused them of rape. This case got huge media coverage. The media and the people siding with the woman.  The court found the men not guilty however. The woman did not like the verdict and doxed the men. This caused them to receive a massive wave of harassment and being forced to isolate themselves. They got their life ruined. 

Which is why the identity of the person is protected.

For serious though; the principle is broadly applicable enough that I can't imagine that the US doesn't have something similar. People from the US who actually know something about the law can weigh in on that front.

Quick clarification of why Robinson was arrested & charged (swiped from the Beeb, but it is accurate):

 

The law on contempt is set out in case law and the 1981 Contempt of Court Act.

 

 

It sets out the key areas and broad principles of what will amount to contempt. They include:

  • Publishing anything that creates a substantial risk of seriously prejudicing "active" criminal proceedings. Proceedings are 'active' when a suspect is arrested
  • Bringing into a court building a device for recording sound
  • Breaching the confidentiality of the jury's deliberations

Taking photographs or film in a court building is capable of being a contempt of court, as Tommy Robinson found out.

And breaching a court order or undertakings given to the court can also amount to contempt.

oh my god squarehead, your country is covered in cctv cameras and you need a license to own a tv don't even pretend like you're free

 

What percentage do you think are actually functional & monitored.....You might be surprised?  ;)

 

Frankly CCTV doesn't bother me in the slightest, simply because they have had no negative effect on my life whatsoever. One of my mates makes his living in that field though, so there's definitely some up-sides on that front.  I've recently discussed with my neighbours the idea of installing a low-light motion-tracking TV with a shared feed, to over-watch the area between our properties.  Since the police asked to mount one of their CCTV systems on one of our office buildings the sort of petty vandalism we suffered on a regular basis has declined massively.  I just feel so oppressed.  :rolleyes:

 

The TV license is a subsidy to the BBC and TBH it is one I object to rather strongly.

There's a much bigger difference IMHO.....In the US you will very likely end up dead, in the UK not so much.

Doxxing in the general sense is legal in the US, unless the intent is to harass or harm.

 

https://securityaffairs.co/wordpress/56841/laws-and-regulations/trolling-doxing-cyberstalking-cybercrime-law.html



Posting personal information publicly with the intent to shame, defame, harass or endanger is illegal. It places the doxed individual in a potentially dangerous situation. The federal law often utilized to address doxing is 18 U.S.C. § 2261A:

“Title 18, United States Code, Section 2261A is the federal stalking statute. Section

2261A(1) covers in-person stalking and Section 2261A(2) covers cyberstalking— stalking that occurs using Internet or telephones—as well as stalking that occurs using the mail. Section 2261(2), originally enacted as part of the Violence Against Women Act of 2005, has two main provisions—Subsections (A) and (B):
  • Both provisions require that the defendant act with the intent to kill, injure, harass, intimidate, or place under surveillance with intent to kill, injure, harass, or intimidate another person.
  • Both provisions also require the use of the mail, any interactive computer service or electronic communication service or electronic communication system of interstate commerce, or any other facility of interstate or foreign commerce. Usually, this element is met with the use of the Internet.
  • Both provisions also require that the defendant engaged in a course of conduct, meaning more than one act. Subsection (A) further requires that the course of conduct places the victim in reasonable fear of the death of, or serious bodily injury to, the victim, the victim’s spouse or intimate partner, or to an immediate family member of the victim. Subsection (B) requires instead that the course of conduct causes, attempts to cause, or would be reasonably expected to cause substantial emotional distress to the victim or the victim’s immediate family.”

I had presumed that was what we were about here, stating our respective opinions?

 

I'd love to give you mine on the blunt knife thing, but I can't quite find adequate words at the moment.  ;)

It's the former.

 

Rich pricks and their total social-disconnect are as big a problem for us as they are for you.....Mao had the answer IMHO (But Alabama 3 express it better):

 

 

Of course, you guys are rather better equipped on that front than we are.....Maybe you should lead by example?  It's my belief that this is exactly why your founding fathers enshrined the right to bear arms (and why our government restricts it).

squarehead's depth of denial is reaching marianas trench levels

Or he's reacting like anyone would react when some other tribe drags him out of his tent to hoot at him about how his tribe is evil and dumb.

 

This is a prickish thread started specifically to bait people from the UK, whose participants are overwhelmingly people from the US sucking their own dicks about how Squarehead's homeland is a giant funny-accented prison.

 

Any sociologist would tell you that Squarehead being defensive is the normal and expected reaction a human being would have to this sort of thing. Hell, it's your collective reaction any time one of us outsiders dares to make fun of your country's manifold ridiculousnesses.

 

So ease off maybe, if you want to actually convince the man of anything. Or, if the intent is just to rub his face in things, don't expect him to thank you for it and come around to your point of view.

Also, let's get real here: The UK government is acting absolutely insane on a regular basis. The thing with Tommy Robinson is a blatant example of an abuse of a rule that is intended to keep trials unbiased and fair. Things like this are happening all the time in the UK, and it's worth having a thread for that. This thread should not be for mocking individuals (excluding public figures) from the UK - but what any government or person in a government does is fair game. If Squarehead or anyone else wants to change people's minds about some of these things, explain why they are reasonable in a way we can understand, that's fine. He's welcome to try. But if his arguments are "lol our gov't is shit at maintaining their public surveillance, so we're totes free mate" then yeah, we're gonna laugh a bit at that. Because having government surveillance cameras everywhere is the definition of a police state. Blatant gag orders on the press issued by fiat of tinpot judges is the definition of abuse of power. That's the way it looks from the outside.

      Colonization Of The Solar System

       
      This thread is for discussing the colonization of the solar system, mainly focusing on Mars and the Moon since they are the most relevant. 
      Main topics include transportation, industry, agriculture, economics, civil engineering,  energy production and distribution, habitation, ethics and politics. 
       
       
       
       
      First order of business, our glories tech messiah Elon Musk has set his eyes on Mars:
      Reason stated? Because being a interplanetary species beats being a single planetary species. 
       
      How does he plan to do this?
      By sending two cargo ships by 2022 to Mars for surveying and building  basic infrastructure, then two years later in 2024 sending 4 ships, two cargo ships and two crewed ships to start the colonization. First thing would be to build fuel refineries and expanding infrastructure to support more ships, then starting to mine and build industry. 
       
      This could mark a new era in human history, a second colonization era, this time without the genocides. The economic potentials are incredible, a single asteroid could easily support the entire earths gold, silver and platinum production for a decade. The moon holds a lot of valuable Helium 3, which right now is worth 12 000 dollars per kilogram! Helium is a excellent material for nuclear reactors. 
       
       
       

       
       
      Speaking about the moon, several companies have set their eyes on the moon, and for good reason.
      In my opinion,  the moon has the possibility of becoming a mayor trade hub for the solar system.  Why is this? Simply put, the earth has a few pesky things called gravity, atmosphere and environmentalists. This makes launching rockets off the moon much cheaper. The moon could even have a space elevator with current technology!  If we consider Elon Musk's plan to travel to Mars, then the Moon should be able to supply cheaper fuel and spaceship parts to space, to then be sent to Mars. The Moon is also rich in minerals that have not sunk to the core yet, and also has a huge amount of rare earth metals, which demands are rapidly increasing. Simply put, the Moon would end up as a large exporter to both the earth and potentially Mars. Importing from earth would almost always be more expensive compared to a industrialized Moon. 
       
      Now how would we go about colonizing the moon? Honestly, in concept it is quite simple.When considering locations, the South pole seems like the best candidate. This is because of it's constant sun spots, which could give 24 hour solar power to the colony and give constant sunlight to plants without huge power usage. The south pole also contain dark spots which contains large amount of frozen water, which would be used to sustain the agriculture and to make rocket fuel. It is true that the equator has the largest amounts of Helium 3 and the best location for rocket launches. However, with the lack of constant sunlight and frequent solar winds and meteor impacts, makes to unsuited for initial colonization. If the SpaceX's BFR successes, then it would be the main means of transporting materials to the moon until infrastructure is properly developed. Later a heavy lifter would replace it when transporting goods to and from the lunar surface, and specialized cargo ship for trans portion between the Moon, Earth and Mars. A space elevator would reduce prices further in the future.  Most likely, a trade station would be set up in CIS lunar space and Earth orbit which would house large fuel tanks and be able to hold the cargo from  cargo ships and heavy lifters. Sun ports would be designated depending on their amount of sunlight. Year around sunlight spots would be dedicated to solar panels and agriculture. Varying sun spots would be used for storage, landing pads and in general everything. Dark spots would be designated to mining to extract its valuable water. Power production would be inistially almost purely solar, with some back up and smoothing out generators. Later nuclear reactors would take over, but serve as a secondary backup energy source. 
       
       
      The plan:
      If we can assume the BFR is a success, then we have roughly 150 ton of payload to work with per spaceship. The first spaceship would contain a satellite to survey colonization spot. Everything would be robotic at first. Several robots capable of building a LZ for future ships,  mining of the lunar surface for making solar panels for energy production, then mining and refinement for fuel for future expeditions. The lunar colony would be based underground, room and pillar mining would be used to cheaply create room that is also shielded from radiation and surface hazards. Copying the mighty tech priest, a second ship would come with people and more equipment. With this more large scale mining and ore refinement would be started. Eventually beginning to manufacturing their own goods. Routinely BFRs would supply the colony with special equipment like electronics, special minerals and advanced equipment and food until the agricultural sector can support the colony.  The colony would start to export Helium 3 and rocket fuel, as well as spacecraft parts and scientific materials. Eventually becoming self sustaining, it would stop importing food and equipment, manufacturing it all themselves to save costs. 
       
      I am not the best in agriculture, so if some knowledge people could teach us here about closed loop farming, or some way of cultivating the lunar soil. Feel free to do so.
       
       
      Mining:
      I found a article here about the composition of the lunar soil and the use for it's main components:

      In short, the moon has large amounts of oxygen, silicon, aluminum, calcium, iron, magnesium and titanium in it's soil.
      How do we refine them? By doing this.
       
      Aluminum could be used for most kinds of wiring to requiring high conductivity to density ratio. Meaning power lines, building cables and such. Aluminum is not very suited for building structures on the surface because of the varying temperatures causing it to expand and contract. Iron or steel is better suited here. Aluminum could however be used in underground structures where temperatures are more stable.  Aluminum would also most likely end up as the main lunar rocket fuel. Yes, aluminum as rocket fuel. Just look at things like ALICE, or Aluminum-oxygen. Aluminum-oxygen would probably win out since ALICE uses water, which would be prioritized for the BFRs, since I am pretty sure they are not multi-fuel. 
       More on aluminum rocket fuel here:

      Believe it or not, but calcium is actually a excellent conductor, about 12% better than copper. So why do we not use it on earth? Because it has a tendency to spontaneously combust in the atmosphere. In a vacuum however, this does not pose a problem. I does however need to be coated in a material so it does not deteriorate. This makes it suited for "outdoor" products and compact electrical systems like electric motors. Yes, a calcium electric motor.
