    Police Brutality Protests Thread

    That explains a lot. In Norway police education is a three years' study with a bachelor degree. That's how it should be.

    Buying/selling tier

    The fact you don't pay in advance is why I started thinking of this right now. LL has started to charge VAT from Norwegian customers. I suppose they don't have a choice there but they forgot to tell us. The only announcement they made was a blog post that was posted too late for me to reduce the...

    Buying/selling tier

    Does anybody know if there is a market for that and if so, what kind of prices?

    Question of the day #7 - Yall are all In Trouble

    Some high quality dark Belgian would be the absolute favourite but it's expensive. So for everyday use, anything with lots of cocoa, not too much sugar and no other additions except possibly milk and maybe a tiny bit of hot pepper to fire up my tastebuds. I'm addicted to cocoa, not sugar.

    Sadly my headmaster never understood that. That lost her quite a few teachers (including me) before she finally saw the writing on the wall blackboard and resigned herself.

    Nobody cares about Art

    How about some serious art for a change. I've called this masterpiece "Face the Horizon" and it encapsulates the spirit and aestethics of one of the great new VR based virtual realities of the future. I can't tell you which one since I'm not getting paid to promote it.

    Stock Markets auto-halt after giant drops

    It's too early to say. We may end up with a depression as bad as or even worse than the 1920s one or the economy may even recover for now. But we are in the biggest financial bubble ever and it's been that way for years now, since long before Trump enetered the political scene. Sooner or later...

    Study says single-payer health system would save $450B and 68,000 lives annually

    USA spends about 10,000 USD a year per capita on health care. Norway spends about 7,000 USD a year per capita on health care. The Norwegian health care system is vastly superior to the US since it offers top quality service to everybody, not just the rich few. I think that says it all.

    I love this: “There is no need for a free trade agreement to involve accepting EU rules on competition policy, subsidies, social protection, the environment, or anything similar any more than the EU should be obliged to accept UK rules,” Are there really people stupid enough to belive that BS?

    #JAILTOTHECHIEF- Shit Just Got Real

    Don't judge representative democracy by the USA and the UK because they are not really representative. Both those nations have several significant flaws that aren't directly related to parliamentarism but seriously compromices its effectiveness: They have long traditions of class segregation...

    #JAILTOTHECHIEF- Shit Just Got Real

    I had to watch this twice to make sure I understood it right. Leonard French has a brand new (to me at least) possible (albeit unlikely) outcome of the impeachment. Any thoughts on this?

    New SL Regions in the Past week

    Those are the SSP regions, the not so secret sims LL used to build Belliseria. There are still almost 200 of them on the grid but this may mean they're starting to wind down the Belliseria project.
