Greg Beetham's recent activity

  • I suppose one solution is that the pharmaceutical industry should be nationalised and research and development done for an end result and not for profit as a motive, but it wouldn’t hurt for the ...
  • Fettuccini with bacon pieces and garlic butter…YUM!
  • It can’t happen in any case politicians are elected to look after their electorate originating within existing countries/borders and they are defined by an economic identity first and foremost, ...
  • Surely there are civilized standards though. Verily ‘twas louts such as those who forced Socrates to quaff the hemlock.
  • I thought Obama was divisive but I did respect him for his manners and what appeared to be basic goodness, you couldn’t get a more polar opposite than Trump I think. Maybe Trump has some good ...
  • Created discussion thread Trump has gone too far this time
    Unforgivable.
  • Replied in Gun town
    Erm, the cops have guns too, the solution is more guns not less, just to keep everyone honest. We can't allow a gun gap to develop.
  • Don't worry the stars and stripes will be the first flag planted on Mars by man.
  • Replied in Gun town
    But at least the cop arrested the troublemaker so it all turned out reasonably accurate in the end.
  • That’s not making any sense too me, who’s going to be concerned about getting run over by something that sounds like a duck? Everyone knows what the ah-hoo-gah sound belongs too, a submarine, so ...
  • Replied in Weird
    Why would two ships on converging courses be different? and why would a container ship want to 'overtake' a destroyer? What does approach from the starboard quarter mean? which is what I said ...
  • Replied in Weird
    I’m not getting why it’s so difficult to understand that the two ships were on converging courses with the larger ship approaching the smaller one from the starboard quarter, (like I said long ...
  • Yes normally they have at least running lights on and the superstructure usually has lights so you are absolutely correct the container ship should have been quite visible, but if it wasn't, why ...
  • I don’t think the destroyer was slow or dead in the water, they would have had to have been moving at almost the same speed as the container ship but on converging courses, not at right angles, ...
  • Yeah I thought there could have been some kind of exercise that fouled up (the using of the Crystal as a radar blind is a good one) but there is one problem with the idea, the captain would have ...
  • Well whatever the definition of an ‘ordinary black guy’ is I can’t help but think it wasn’t an ideal time to inform the cop that he had a gun while reaching to get something. One would think that ...
  • Well you know how navies are when they go into official mode and are conducting an investigation into some mishap, they don’t tend to speculate about what went wrong even though there would be a ...
  • I estimate it took about 50 seconds to do the 180 degree turn from start to finish, they chuck her into the turn at about the 48 second mark and it’s about completed at the 1:38 second mark. Of ...
  • I think some people have the impression rightly or wrongly that blacks can be unpredictable and violent/aggressive. A trait, if true, that’s possibly worsened after consuming ice which is an ...
  • Yes of course there are trigger happy cops who panic at the sight of a black person and shoot first and often but at least some of the ones present weren’t like that otherwise the black cop would ...
