This is the second time you said this. In light of the fact that you initiated the discussion about capitalism in this thread with the following comment in this post
Macdoc wrote:as I was saying ..it's not capitalism that is the problem ....it's predatory capitalism
your attempts at policing this thread reek of hypocrisy.

You cannot reasonably expect others to not reply to it. Predatory capitalism is capitalism, and we have too much of it.

Don't really give a fuck what you think Hermit you may have gathered that....sod off. You were third man in ....you can conflate predation with capitalism all you want and you'll still be in error.

Yes, accusing me of having to have the last word is ironic indeed.

Can't upload the picture for some reason, but I got the hi hats all cut into the living room. That's pretty great.

How Ouka the dog started flying on a paraglider

How Ouka the dog started flying on a paraglider
We all know the saying that a dog is a man’s best friend. Well, one French man has been testing that theory to its limit.
After just a month and a half of training, he managed to teach his pet how to fly with him on a paraglider.

The man who lived in a Singapore forest for 30 years
By Peter Hoskins
BBC News, Singapore

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-60284352


what struck me was the 80% living in public housing.

Singapore also has an extensive public housing system, with close to 80% of its residents living in property subsidised, built and managed by the Housing Development Board (HDB)

Imagine a pot of hot oil exploding in your face, the pain so great neither your mind nor your body knows how to respond. Imagine looking at yourself in the mirror moments later and seeing your face “melting”, an eyelid drooping over your eye. And imagine all this happening in a foreign country – in the middle of a lockdown brought on by the pandemic.
