Just think, that denarius survived 2,000~ years and then…

Cypher ,

Not just for security, selling snake oil is also grounds for ad blocking.

I honestly can’t tell if this is treading into sovcit territory or not.

Potassium depletion in soil threatens global crop yields ( www.ucl.ac.uk )

Potassium deficiency in agricultural soils is a largely unrecognised but potentially significant threat to global food security if left unaddressed, finds new research involving researchers at UCL, University of Edinburgh and the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology....

Cypher ,

… where exactly do you think the potassium goes?

Also Potassium is a chemical element not a mineral, though it occurs in many minerals.

Cypher ,

And do you suppose the potassium is “stuck” or locked away into those plants forever?

Cypher ,

We put nitrogen in fertiliser and for some reason you think it’s impossible to put potassium in? Really?

Potassium is a key component of any fertiliser.

Cypher ,

You reckon farmers are too stupid to buy fertiliser with sufficient potassium in it?

You literally get potassium back in the cycle just from composting waste.

Cypher ,

I was addressing the ridiculous claim that potassium cannot be replaced.

Now if you’re not going to actually read and comprehend a comment chain you can piss off.

Potasium is a mineral. When it is gone it is gone. Nitrogen is replenishable, but minerals need to be brought back some other way.

Eating slugs sounds like a good way to get horrific parasites… I wouldn’t even trust one that’s been burnt to charcoal.

Cypher ,

They could look into repurposing farming equipment and supplies given all the shortages they’re experiencing

Cypher ,

The billionaires set the talking points and all other media is forced to address it or get accused of covering up “issues”.

Cypher ,

we will end up at “end game scenario” we saw in X by these hypothetical steps, which are different steps to X but the same “end game scenario”

This isn’t a conceptually difficult hypothetical to follow.

Cypher ,

I was curious and went looking because I suspected it was low emissions but not how low. Research seems to suggest Kangaroo meat is significantly lower GHG per kg than tofu!

In our calculations we use 1.30 CO2 equivalents for one kilogram production of kangaroo meat which is an average of the estimates reported in the literature

Cypher ,

I did not know that, I knew it used to be very cheap but it’s more than doubled in price over the last 8 years

Cypher ,

This paper focuses on Australian domestic consumption although transportation is still a factor especially with the sheer size of Australia.

I guess it’s good news that Kangaroo thrive basically anywhere that isn’t sand dunes

Cypher ,

If everyone on The planet switched their 0.5 servings of beef per day for 0.5 servings of kangaroos, nothing would be fundamentally different

So you aren't interested in the evidence, got it.

Cypher ,

I don’t recall saying that kangaroo could or should replace beef globally. You’ve taken my observation of a single data point and practically built an army of straw men.

Congratulations it is entirely clear that you are so blinded by whatever ideology you possess that you cannot critically assess new information or meaningfully participate in any discussion.

Cypher ,

Kangaroos dont fart methane you fucking moron.

Unlike cows.

Even if you replaced all land used by cows with kangaroos they would be lower emissions but I never fucking said that to start with.

I observed that kangaroos are lower GHG emissions than tofu per kg you illiterate fuck.

Cypher ,

I met some Brits on a flight back to Aus and they were a bit confused…

They thought they would be having breakfast at Bondi, bushwalk and picnic in the Blue Mountains then drive down to Melbourne for dinner and back to their hotel in Sydney.

That’s around 20 hours of driving not including stops.

They really didn’t comprehend the scale.

Cypher ,

I would think so but I overheard them and they had no idea I was Aussie at that point…

Cypher ,

China? I think you mean the Mongolian Empire.

Afghanistan? Believe it or not, Mongolian Empire.

Cypher ,

I think you read too much into this…

I was simply joking that the Mongolian Empire had controlled those regions at some point, and if we go by Russian and Chinese claims that historical ownership means modern ownership, Mongolia would have claim.

Cypher ,

Your whole line of reasoning is irrelevant. This happened in Australia where there are sane gun control laws.

Mental healthcare is available in Australia. He was diagnosed and treated, and went off his meds like many schizophrenics do.

Cypher ,

And he had it, so you can stop fucking harping on about it.

Cypher ,

There are other BZ2 enjoyers!?

I keep hoping for a modern take on it

Cypher ,

So how does this wealth tax work? Are stock holdings taxed? Stock quantity doesn’t magically go up unlike fiat currency which governments just print more of.

None of these numbers make any sense in terms of how capital actually works. Is the government meant to take the profit in stocks? Because these billionaires aren’t selling that much stock each year and aren’t earning that much from CEO paychecks.

Not to say CEO paychecks aren’t obscene…

And what do you do when they pack up and move themselves and their companies to tax havens?

Cypher ,

The IRS just confiscates an equal percentage of every position they hold

Congrats there are now 3 men who can collaborate to collapse the government by shorting an insane position, have a portion of it seized, and wipe out all government revenue for a year. Sure they'd also be infinitely broke but you just gave them the lever to kill a country.

Cypher ,

a 4% surtax on incomes over $1 million

Musk isn't earning $220 billion a year, so clearly as I asked, this appears to be based on stock valuation.

People spruiking and sharing absolute nonsense with zero idea of what is income, what is capital and how a "wealth tax" would actually work.

This is why your opponents laugh at you.

Cypher ,

Also, the question was:

The question was

So how does this wealth tax work?

I know because I asked it and not a single one of you has had a coherent response.

Oh like the tax in Massachusetts?

The tax that would only see Musk pay $575 million and not the ass-pulled $6.6 billion?

Who are my opponents?

Apparently the ultra wealthy but you seem a bit confused.

Cypher ,

Position vs stock. Learn to read.

Cypher ,

I’m arguing that by FlyingSquid’s own assertion that the Mass. wealth tax could be copied that the numbers make zero sense.

What’s not to get here? Read what he claimed and read the link he provided.

Biden vows G7 response, ‘ironclad’ US support for Israel after Iran attacks ( www.aljazeera.com )

US President Joe Biden has condemned Iranian attacks on military facilities in Israel, pledging a coordinated Group of Seven (G7) diplomatic response while highlighting the United States’s help in taking down “nearly all” of the attacking drones and missiles....

Cypher ,

This is why I was cheering when North Korea got nukes.

North Korea is a horrific shit show but war against North Korea would almost certainly end in direct conflict with China.

Now that NK has nukes there is zero risk of the West initiating a conflict. The risk is too high.

Any change in NK will need to happen internally or by pressure from their allies. Which sucks for the NK people but is probably still less horrific than war.

Cypher ,

I’m not interested in tankie propaganda about how NKs problems are all due to the West.

NK is a dictatorship and like all dictators Kim Jong Un and all his key supporters should be executed.

What happened to all the baddies you knew growing up?

I don't know if this is something people say in other countries, but in my country, there's this common cliché or "wisdom" where adults will assure you that the people who picked on you in environments like school will universally develop lives of hardship later on, one way or another getting into mayhem....

Cypher ,

Two of them were jailed for murder and attempted murder, in unrelated incidents.

Cypher ,

I guess you asked for updates on people whose behaviour could be indicative of larger and on going behavioural issues.

'Run, run, run': Chaos at a Sydney mall as 6 people stabbed to death, and the suspect fatally shot ( apnews.com )

A man stabbed six people to death at a busy Sydney shopping center Saturday before he was fatally shot, police said, with hundreds fleeing the chaotic scene, many weeping as they carried their children. Eight people, including a 9-month-old, were injured....

Cypher ,

Your inability to use an automatic weapon accurately has no bearing on how many casualties a competent person could inflict with one you muppet.

Cypher ,

The nutter who shot up that LA concert spent a lot of time training, and spent years buying his firearms and ammo.

Australian's have zero interest in going down the route that America has with school shootings. The stabbing is a tragedy that could have been much worse.

And unlike in the US UNARMED civilians were able to intervene and slow the attacker down.

Fuck you brainwashed cretins who would rather have children dying than give up your precious penis extensions.

Cypher ,

The best way to protect Ukrainian lives is for
Russia to pack up and go home.

There is zero need for this war. This is simply Putin’s fantasy of rebuilding a Russian empire on the corpses of Russian neighbours.

Cypher ,

If Mexico or Canada defended themselves from invasion there would be a war.

You’re a fucking genius. No really.

Cypher ,

The case in the OP is in Australia. Your story is from the US and has absolutely zero bearing on any likely outcome.

Cypher ,

So you would see no issue if they had simply labeled the site as exclusive for cis women?

Cypher ,

Memeing this image is pretty disrespectful considering it’s entirely obvious how pissed they were at having their privacy invaded.

Cypher ,

Injunctions yes, injections no, Australia banned capital punishment in all jurisdictions since 1985.
