    Commies like you don't get democratic representation especially since you campaign against it.
    Have you tried not being a terrible poster?
    Careful, we'll get into a tautological spiral and teds will ban us for quote pyramiding

    You massive wanker.
    Well, I am pretty massive, pipsqueak.

    And I do occasionally wank when the mood strikes.

    I'll allow it.

    Screaming communist whenever I post something beyond your basic understanding of the world was endearing for a short while but now it is just making me a misanthrope.

    I'm pretty sure opposing Meester doesn't make you a misanthrope. Mioros? Misoros? Mismoros maybe? Someone who can speak Greek help?

    You shouldn't be able to top up your care based on how much money you have.

    You can currently get quicker access to certain treatment on other criteria though. I got an MRI on my lower back within a week because I'm an otherwise healthy young adult which bumped me above other people on the waiting list.

    Is "body fat percentage" a similar useless index as BMI is one?
    BMI isn't useless unless you have a large proportion of your population all competing in body building. Most people who get told they are fat based on BMI are actually fat, BMI is a good metric for judging the health of the population and most people who aren't outliers. In a lot of instance BMI under reports unhealthiness in sedentary populations, people who are 'healthy' weight but have low lean mass compared to their body fat.
    Nope.

    As with quite a few of those measurements, that we took unquestioned for granted, more recent research has proven those are wrong/made up/don't represent the condition they claim to represent. E.g. "A bit of alcohol doesn't harm, it even is healthy!" Complete BS.

    Depends on the situation doesn't it? Alcohol is far more safe to drink if your water supply is from the 18th century.

    IF taxing beef was an attempt to account for the true cost of externalized climate damage, then im all for it. I suspect it isnt a tax on emissions though.

    Not sure which thread this should go in, so since Euro, and would involve Government recognition/law, Euro Politics thread is it:

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...-years-younger

    Identifies as 20 years younger than he is, wants to have his legal age changed to reflect.

    This isn't a euro thread, this is a thread for a former mighty country that once was part of europe.

    His "emotional age" is definitely less than his physical age.

    He's acting like a six year old.

    This Dutch clown, we see him as such for well over thirty years, gets more news coverage abroad than domestic. He just love the attention, dutchies usually ignore him.

    Just to paint his character image: Divorced five times, six kids with four women, personal bankrupt two times, business bankrupt four times, conviction for beating up wife nr.4. Famous NLP catchfrase: TSJAKAAAAA!!

    Schopenhauer:

    All truth passes through three stages.
    First, it is ridiculed.
    Second, it is violently opposed.
    Third, it is accepted as being self-evident..

    Seems N.I. are getting kicked to the curb (although to their huge economic benefit), so the thread title should be updated to reflect the formerly United Kingdom or fUK.
