your full of shit in no way does the existence of building regs overturn sub par materials used at Grenfell tower

if anything is to be learnt here it is that fire regs across Europe needed to be at a higher standard and MORE unified


the materials used are illegal in Germany and there use here was an economic one. that had NOTHING TO DO WITH EU REGS

One country in the world doesn't realize polystyrene is flammable and releases cyanide gas when burned and it's not Liberia. Let's wrap our homes in it.  

The problem comes down to the change in emphasis that the EU's green movement has brought to building construction.  It used to be about fire safety, and now it's about insulating as much as possible to save the planet.

Not much use if the whole thing goes up in a puff of CO2 and trace elements which were once people.

one problem is dishonest twats spreading garbage



that is fucking bullshit. fire safety regs have improved under eu regs and the cladding here was sub par regulation wise hence back tracking on claims by fuck face that it was up to standard.

not only that...a tory lead steering group was up for dismantling regulations further as a "benefit" of Brexit

lakanal tower block torched in what is pretty much the same way and yes there is no official verdict yet but anyone can see that its the bloody cladding.

i think there is no need to rush as in everybody moves TODAY. but these blocks need rehousing. fuck all was done after Lakanal despite official findings that the cladding spread the fire

that was 2009!

now they are checking the buildings 8 years later and discovering that dozens of them have the same issue.

damn right they need evacuating

  about 6 seconds

the bullet has the angular momentum of the earth as it is shot..lets say its shot at right angles to the direction of rotation and the bullet is disconnected from the earths rotation frame of rference upon firing... if your correct...  then he would have to lead the target by 6X355m/s or about 1.8km

more bizarrely if i shoot my compound bow at a target along the direction of rotation it should never reach the target as it only 90m/s?... shooting n/s would be bizarre... I would need to lead the target by 350m at a target 80m away!

need to explain that better. not ruling out some Coriolis  thing but its a hard call to my mind


I'm just a guy who's been working long hours in the hot sun drilling holes in the earth, so I haven't had the time to draw up some free-body diagrams. Absent a better explanation than a hand-wavy invocation of "rotational effects" I think Hakko is full of shit on this one, but I know midi is violating the law of conservation of momentum.

yes! hence my perplexion!

A sniper with Canada's elite special forces in Iraq has shattered the world record for the longest confirmed kill shot in military history at a staggering distance of 3,450 metres.

Quote
"It is at the distance where you have to account not just for the ballistics of the round, which change over time and distance, you have to adjust for wind, and the wind would be swirling," said a source with expertise in training Canadian special forces.

"You have to adjust for him firing from a higher location downward and as the round drops you have to account for that. And from that distance you actually have to account for the curvature of the Earth."

Ho. Ly. Crap.

Good job Canucks.

A friend of ours is a retired marine recon sniper. He says that at that distance the round actually hits the target perpendicular to its axis, i.e., if the target is face on to the muzzle, and the aim point is between the eyes, the round actually strikes the target at the temple traveling parallel to the the line of the eyes.

uhh?

Rotation of the earth. It takes a while for even .50 to travel 3.5k.

overall pretty pointless with some dull bits. amazon tv has this habit of making tv shows that are pretending to be better than they are. getting the look of high-end tv rather than actually being it. that said 6.875/10

Russia’s Monday decision to suspend a memorandum of cooperation with the US-led coalition in retaliation after a US jet shot down a Syrian Army plane has rattled some US allies, who fear escalating tensions between Russia and the coalition. In what it called a "precautionary measure," Australia became the first coalition member to suspend flights in Syria, claiming it's too dangerous for its planes to fly without the agreement, according to

Probably not the kind of no fly zone the neocons had in mind.


you ever get the feeling shit is sliding?

Look, the chance of being killed by an islamophobic attack is so near to nil that muslims have nothing to worry about. Keep calm and carry on?
Also, this islamophobic attack has nothing to do with the wider islamophobic community, who are a movement of peace. Just a mentally deranged lone wolf. Keep calm and carry on!
And we should definitely call for all the people in the UK to unite with the islamophobic community, who are the real victims here.

something you want to get off your chest there?

Appearance of impropriety. He didn't do anything wrong; in fact, he did what he was told to do by the FBI. But rather than make that yet another issue, he recused himself. Maybe in retrospect he shouldn't have. Recusal in and of itself is hardly evidence of wrongdoing.

the guy keeps changing his story ffs!

well it was the locals who demanded the flats get a face lift with new cladding because they didn't like the look of the building
