    The cypher technique is called Steganography. There are limits:


    And reflexively, a house Stenographer lost it during the debt vote:



    But the message which Fox reported (in their news clip) was recorded outside. The microphones inside were off at the time. And who was the grey haired guy who seemed to set things in motion (clipped in reports / most uTube clips…) Seems almost to be in a trance, very relaxed approaching the podium…

    Was the message received ?

    On the subject of the Met Office what is it with them. When I go to the forecast map all I get is a zoomed in view of London.

    Who wants to know the weather in London?

    So you enter your location as “UK”:

    No Exact Match. Please select a nearby location …
    Swatte Fell (2.1 miles)

    Try entering “England”:

    No Exact Match. Please select a nearby location …
    Watford (3.6 miles)

    Obviously they have no idea. So why do we trust them with predicting the weather?

    It is an arrogance beyond belief that they imply weather accurate to less than 100 miles on a 5 day basis.

    DM had a go at reporting:

    D’erren B’rown would have been proud of this, and has demonstrated how it could be done in some of his shows.

    Perhaps the warning was on a more subtle note. If someone could be put into this state to do this, then putting a gun in their hand to do something else is quite possible. Big wake up call.

    NB: During the shutdown everything was not shut down. Much of government continued to function albeit without pay.

    The main distraction was the vets being denied access to war memorials, and people irritated that the national parks were closed down.

I’m not here to advocate limiting your right to free speech. After all, if all the racists stopped posting here, there’d be no comments left. However, I’m curious about one thing. Johnson Beh*rry was awarded the highest medal for bravery after he rescued several fellow soldiers during combat. If you’re superior to him, as you obviously believe you are, why not enlist and go and fight in Afghanistan or Iraq, engage in combat and rescue more soldiers than he did, and then you’ll prove that you’re better than the “feral rubberlips”. Otherwise, you run the risk of looking a gutless, spineless, chickenhawk piece of shit who comfortably spouts racial slurs from your keyboard but haven’t got a millionth of the bravery this “feral rubberlips” has, and I’m sure that’s the last thing you courageous, tough keyboard warriors would want.

    Could I point out that the track of the low pressure is not the track of the winds.

    In isolation, since the system is moving West to East and rotating anticlockwise the winds at the North side are slower than those at the bottom. The winds in the middle are low.

    Further, it is travelling south of another low pressure centred north of Scotland. So the pressure difference to the north is low. Where they “meet” the northern system is causing opposite winds to this storm system

    To the south however is the high pressure of the Med. Therefore the winds are the addition of the storm and the winds that would be caused by the high pressure.

    Well basically. Nothing ever exists in isolation, and the Met office should know better than to show the track like that.

    So the highest winds are some where in the Channel region and not as the graphic depicts. IOW to Dover is my best guess.

    Actual wind speed are far more dependent on the direction, built forms and topology around you. So even if you are out of the main area you can suffer higher local wind gusts.

    Yep, that’s about your level. I love how not a single one of you has been able to answer my question directly, instead just making such hilarious and imaginative jokes as you have. I’d have more respect if you just openly said “Yes, I’m better than that co-on Beh*rry and no I’m not going to fight in the army to prove I’m better than him”. Instead, all you’re capable of is jokes about breastfeeding. Wow. You’re living the dream, aren’t you? I’m in awe of your discursive skills. But not of your complete cowardice. But it’s typical and to be expected of keyboard warriors who revel in posting garbage in the comfort of anonymity. Not one of you would go up to Beh*rry or any black person and call them a darkie or a feral rubberlips. So my original contention stands. You’re gutless, spineless shits and yet all you had to do was my answer my point directly and you couldn’t even do that, and in doing so reinforced how lacking you are. As you were.

    Admirable thoughts from ‘you kippers’ if just pertaining to Euro elections 2014 but carried further to split the Conservative vote 2015 [with some disheartened Lib /Lab supporters changing too] it will invariably spell the complete end of any chance to leave the EU.
    While agreeing Dave has no strong intention of really leaving the club prefering sitting on the fence pontificating, Miliband and Clegg and their parties are so completely committed to dig the UK in deeper a Labour or Lib-Lab pact government will ensure you can never emerge.
    You make it sound like Dave will always be an ever and ever, permanent fixture fronting his party.
    Following UKIP success in 2014, while Dave’s inevitable removal a year before the General Election might result in very temporary uneasiness it would only take a Tory champion adamant at leaving and all your objectives would be acheived.
    I have all faith in Nigel, and his UKIP party success in 2014 but unfortunately no further. He is the Joker in the pack and once used to trump his opponents in 2014 will probably play no further part in the bigger game.

    We need innovation. As soon as we leave the EU, and remove all the stupidity controlling individuals, and small companies, to experiment, and push the boundaries, we will get back the advantage.

    In fact leaving the EU intact would give us a better advantage.

    We need to go back to “do your neighbour no harm” when assessing laws. We should not have wishes as laws. They must be backed up with open statistical information of harm.

    Adopt advice and education instead of limitation.

    Also remove all laws that require negotiation. If it can not be ascertained by an average person alone, if an action is legal it should be removed.

    All future wishes should simply be by financial incentive.

    We pay turbine owners huge subsidies, but threaten house owners with £5000 fines for not fitting insulation inside their private house and having it inspected when they re-plaster a wall.

    You can do some searching on uTube to find the original audio which was recorded when they got her outside. The audio is genuine, it is just that there was no audio really picked up on the footage in the House as the microphone was switched off. (You can max the sound out and just make out something like ‘Lord’ from another more distant mike which was active…)

    The real error is hearing the elevator ding apparently in the House. Oops.

    For the steganography with the stenographer, watch very carefully the original C-Span.

    On the subject of Hollywood, recall the film Blackhawk Down. Totally unrelated, but if there is an illegal arrest of a diplomat on a Somal! passport, that operation and subsequent film could have been more subtly alluding to failed attempt to recover the Black Eagle Fund.

    This is digressing into perhaps a bit of fantasy, but fun none the less. More fun than the fakery portrayed by Fox. Alluding to your three book reference earlier (and these ideas do fit into that area), perhaps a guerilla ontology, but then perhaps not ;-)

    What is a wind speed?

    At ground level? At roof level?

    What is the averaging period?

    Is the value real, or normalised to a virtual environment.

    All of these are important factors but what is the value you are looking at.

    Most wind models do not account for land masses, never mind local structures or locally created winds.

    In general a person will never know their wind speed. They just get used to a source. If it stays consistent then they can say tomorrow is twice the wind of today etc.

    As for forecasting they need a margin of error. To be safe! What is that margin?

    Aristotle’s Ethics. Last read in 1991 when I was in Limassol. I can tell that because of the restaurant bill I had used as a bookmark. Three of us, we went through the card and it came to £21.30.

    Heisenberg’s Physics and Philosophy, last read in 1992, from 1958 but this edition published in 1962. To try and recreate the thinking abroad at a time when I was first politically aware.

    And then the daft but strangely endearing old socialist, AJP Taylor’s Europe: Grandeur and Decline, which I have never actually read apart from extracts. Napoleon’s defeat up to the very lovely Stalin. It will probably annoy me. Living in Habsburg lands impels me to try and have a better understanding.

    any port in a storm, but, failing that, I'll settle for a large sherry says:

    Been using xcweather as a reference for quite some time now and have stuck with them as they seem the most reliable.
    Have also been noticing for quite a while that the marginally more extreme forecasts tend to get wildly exagerrated by other sources. Quite who those sources think that benefits I really don’t know.

    xcweather forecasts get revised regularly; they did indeed suggest that an intense depression would sweep across the country, but it now looks a darned sight less intense than before. Wouldn’t want to be on a boat in the channel, mind.

    No doubt I’ll be staying at home tomorrow rather than going to work, but that’s only because the train timetable has already been trashed as a result of all the scare-mongering.
    All things considered, I reckon tomorrow would be an excellent day for an enemy force to invade, bearing in mind that half the country already appears to be running around like headless chickens.
