Welcome to the Freethought Forum
The lofty high Renaissance and marked mannerism. The heavy and ornate Baroque era, followed by the gentle Rococo. Harsh neo-classicism, rich romanticism, lush naturalism, stern realism, blurred impressionism. Heady surrealism, blockish cubism, postwar Dada, pointy-cornered art deco and cookie cutter Bauhaus. Let us skip the dreariness of the past half century and arrive finally at FF Style.

Ultimate Cagefight MMXIX, Democratic Edition

The predicted flood of candidates is beginning to swell the banks, but when will it crest? Will it wash in a great candidate or wash out another great election opportunity?

You deserve a better intro to such a weighty thread topic, but hell, you deserved a better outcome to the last election.

Just off the top, I remember Liz Warren is in so far, Kirsten G. is throwing her hat in the ring today and Sherrod B is still being coy. Julian Castro... who else?

Here's the place! Kick the tires, handicap the ponies, place your bets! Grab a ringside seat.

Begun, the drone wars have.
Jan 08, 2019 - 9:32 PM - by JoeP
First we had a near-total shutdown at London Gatwick airport for a few days before Christmas due to repeated drone sightings.

Military called in to help with Gatwick drone crisis | UK news | The Guardian

Now, London Heathrow has been temporarily halted for the same.

Heathrow airport 'drone sighting' leads to brief runway closure | UK news | The Guardian

Note the 'scare quotes' in the second headline. No actual drones have been captured, no firm claims or reliable witnesses let alone clear photos, and no one has been charged. Unidentified Flying Objects, in fact.

Clearly it's
  1. undeclared war
  2. terrorists
  3. rogue nerds who need to be rounded up and shot
  4. the Empire
  5. the rebel alliance
  6. something to do with Brexit

To be fair, an accidental drone collision with an aircraft could be a lot more serious than a bird collision (which is already serious enough) due to metal and other rigid parts, fuel and/or flammable batteries, and omg technology.

But is this a sensible precaution? Or the aviation authorities being overcautious? Or telling the public we can still f you up? Or telling the government see we told you we needed more regulation preventing civilians from having any fun? Or giving terrorists and activists some handy suggestions?

Or is it just another British "the wrong kind of" excuse?
