Shocking attack on hunt protester by Pigoonlet in unitedkingdom

[–]SpeedflyChris 2 points3 points  (0 children)

"In and out of consciousness" but "discharged later that day". Don't you see a problem with the statement you quoted to me. Do you know ANYTHING about healthcare? Do you think a doctor would discharge some one who had been so badly injured that he had lost consciousness multiple times?

Yes. Exactly this happened to my girlfriend a year or so ago when she slipped and hit the back of her head hard. Bleeding from one ear, slurring words and incoherent. Had lost consciousness immediately after the fall. Still didn't get kept in overnight, on the proviso that she had someone to look after her and bring her back in if her condition deteriorated.

The very fact that he was transferred to another hospital shows that this wasn't merely a case of a broken nose (which is still a serious case of assault regardless).

Meanwhile, you're on here supporting the violent criminals that put a man in hospital. Well done.

There is no state sponsored doping program in Jamaica.

Now who's being naive? Read up on what happened with their anti-doping prior to and in the aftermath of their 2012 Olympics domination.

In this instance they ham it up and show some idiot in a neck brace when all he did was get a headbut for winding people up. You cant expect people to take abuse 2 or 3 times a week for no reason and suck it up.

Oh do fuck off, you odious little twat.

Mr Leigh was rushed to Kingsbridge Hospital in a Landrover driven by a member of their group, but was transferred to Derriford in Plymouth as he continued to go in and out of consciousness and had blood coming out of his mouth and nose. He was discharged later that day.

People getting kicked by horses and punched in the back of the head is incredibly serious. I know it must be hard for the type of irredeemably awful human beings who enjoy these illegal fox hunts to understand, but attempted murder is not okay.

Jamaica is/was just as bad. If you banned all the countries where more than 50% of the athletes are probably doping you'd have no Olympics.

I would support any honorable athlete who would compete, regardless of country.

Well you can find the ones not on drugs, but they're not the ones that make it to finals.

I mean, all things are relative, and the US has an overwhelming number of obese and morbidly obese adults.

There was almost no volume on those markets, I don't buy this.

Well there was a 1000+BTC hidden buy at 9600, that probably helped.

Just watched I think over 1000 BTC get sold into that hidden buy.

Also intriguing that Finex seems to prioritise hidden orders over visible ones. Possible to do some interesting things with trading bots knowing that.

Exclusive: Boris Johnson warns Theresa May she must commit £5.2bn 'Brexit dividend' to NHS to defeat Jeremy Corbyn by BritRedditor1 in ukpolitics

[–]SpeedflyChris 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why. Japan has a much bigger age crisis than the UK and theirs is reducing...

No it isn't. That's hilariously far from the truth.

in 2015 the amount of money spent on health care was ¥41.5 trillion, a substantial increase over 2014’s ¥40.8 trillion. Expenditures for health care in 2005 amounted to ¥33.1 trillion, which means in the last decade costs have risen by about ¥10 trillion, or a ¥1 trillion a year, even as the contributor pool shrinks through attrition.

Tory MP promoted last week tried to claim a £50 charity donation on expenses by Crappy99 in ukpolitics

To run with your analogy, it would be like you saying "my car has 5 scratches and yours has 7" when you've driven 500 miles and I've driven 200,000.

Yes, it's true, but you are trying to imply a conclusion that is intentionally misleading.

The problem at the moment is we can keep pumping money in and it will always need more.

We have a growing and ageing population, healthcare costs are obviously going to grow at beyond the rate of inflation.

Well, it did crash... the market fell more than 80%. And yes, it was totally inevitable.

Good call, I already have TJs wallet logged so I'll see what I can learn there. He has quite a history with bitconnect so is probably a decent lead.

Yes I know, but if previous Ponzi's are any indication they might not actually have had all that much left (probably have been slowly withdrawing for months) prior to this. I want to dig into their wallets and see what I can find.

Making a claim in UK small claims costs very little, it is absolutely worth claiming.

I have a phd.

And yet you have clearly learned nothing about analysing data.

I mean, she is an absolutely awful human being, so I find it hard to be that sympathetic.

It will, the upper limit is 100k. I used it through my own business to get £19k from a customer recently.

‘42 states haven’t upgraded their election equipment in over a decade and Russia knows it’ by theslothening in politics

[–]SpeedflyChris 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's not like you even need much in the way of resources and manpower to crack most of them...

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/apr/15/virginia-hacking-voting-machines-security

“You could have broken into one of these with a very small amount of technical assistance,” Epstein said. “I could teach you how to do it over the phone. It might require an administrator password, but that’s okay, the password is ‘admin’.”

Bypassing the encrypted WEP wireless system also proved easy. The password turned out to be “ABCDE”, according to the state’s security assessment – and getting the password “would take a few minutes and after that you don’t need any tools at all”, said Epstein.

The commission that stripped the machines of certification also found that the version of Windows operating on each of them had not been updated since at least 2004, that it was possible to “create and execute malicious code” on the WINVote and that “the level of sophistication to execute such an attack is low”.

The WINVote machine, manufactured by Advanced Voting Solutions, a now-defunct Texas company, has been under siege by Epstein and others for years; the units have been used in at least two dozen elections across the state. Mississippi and Pennsylvania stopped using them several years ago. Epstein said it is likely no one will ever know whether or not they were tampered with.

“There are no logs kept in the systems,” Epstein said. “I’ve examined them.” In order to determine anything about the machines’ histories, in fact, a very high level of technical sophistication would be required, on a level with the FBI looking at images of deleted files on a suspect’s hard drive.

“Bottom line is that if no Virginia elections were ever hacked (and we have no way of knowing if it happened), it’s because no one with even a modicum of skill tried,” Epstein wrote on his blog.

Or more recently, at Defcon, when every one of the voting machines they made available was hacked within a weekend:

Paper voting just seems needlessly complicated

As opposed to developing and maintaining a secure voting system, which is a total walk in the park in comparison to counting some pieces of paper?
