Please, by all means dispute their facts in the story, if you can. Otherwise, stop trying to emulate Trump on this thread, who would've trashed it before reading it too.


ZeroHedge is a batshit site.
This is widely known.


Trump is batshit crazy.
This is widely known.

However Zero hedge posts the actual news, rather than wait for the government's official response. Their predictions of the market are batshit for the most part, but all market analysis is, best to stick with their news, which isn't tainted like mainstream media and as proof of that remark i present you with a disclaimer of sorts that arrived on their website today.

Tyler Durden for Zero Hedge wrote:Over the weekend, Russia's foreign minister Sergei Lavrov created quite a stir when he announced that the independent Swiss state Spiez lab said that Sergei Skripal, a former Russian double agent, and his daughter Yulia, were poisoned with an incapacitating toxin known as 3-Quinuclidinyl benzilate, or simply BZ, adding that while the toxin was never produced in Russia, it was in service in the US, UK and other NATO states.

However, as RT reports, Andreas Bucher, Spiez Laboratory’s strategy and communications head, told TASS on Monday, that:

“We cannot have any statement on that...”

“We are contractually bound to the OPCW for confidentiality. So, the only institution that could confirm what Mr. Lavrov was saying is the OPCW. We cannot confirm or deny anything.”

As we noted previously, the Swiss lab is also an internationally recognized center of excellence in the field of the nuclear, biological, and chemical protection and is one of the five centers permanently authorized by the OPCW.


And yet the Swiss lab in a letter to RT states:

Spiez Labs wrote:OPCW does not disclose the identity of designated labs that contribute to OPCW activities. These labs are also bound by secrecy agreements. These arrangements exist to ensure the integrity of the analysis and results provided by the designated labs.


Imho, these arrangements are strictly so bullshit politics and propaganda can continue to rear their ugly heads, in a world that's filled to the brim with them already.

At least on Zero Hedge you can find the important news worthy events occurring worldwide, unlike any of our mainstream news sources, here, or abroad. For news the internet is our savior.


It's cute the way you work Trump into every reply.
Why is that?
It's your tell.

When minds wish to debate whilst emulating the guy with orange hair and skin, i try to humor them. Why do you do that and then disparage him regularly?

You just did it again.

Copy-and-paste is not debate, my plain friend.

Absolutely, in fact a little dab will improve driving skills in most cases.


Drivers who test positive for the presence of THC in blood are no more likely to be involved in motor vehicle crashes than are drug-free drivers, according to a federally sponsored case-control study involving some 9,000 participants. The study, published Friday by the United States National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA), is the first large-scale case-control study ever conducted in the United States to assess the crash risk associated with both drugs and alcohol use by drivers.

Authors reported that drivers who tested positive for any amount of THC possessed an unadjusted, elevated risk of accident of 25 percent (Odds Ratio=1.25) compared to controls (drivers who tested negative for any drug or alcohol). However, this elevated risk became insignificant (OR=1.05) after investigators adjusted for demographic variables, such as the drivers’ age and gender. After researchers controlled for both demographic variables and the presence of alcohol, THC-positive drivers’ elevated risk of accident was zero.

Another study. It just keeps coming.
Not that statistics or science has any meaningful significance to the dusty old twats of Channels.

When we unpack all the rhetoric it's really simple, you advocate for driving while impaired...I don't.

I don't drive impaired either. Don't crow about being a safer more responsible driver when it isn't true. It just isn't.
This isn't my opinion. It's factual.

Where/when have I “crowed” about my driving skills?

If you where to be intellectually honest and research sites other than pro-pot advocacy venues perhaps go to NHTSA directly you could see for yourself that at best the question is unsettled and not “factual”.
Again you have your opinion and I have mine, mine however is tempered by experience, sadly.

Don't you mean Friday February 6th 2015?

C&P'ed just now from NHTSA

NHTSA’s Crash Risk Study, the largest of its kind ever conducted, assessed whether marijuana use by drivers is associated with greater risk of crashes. The survey found that marijuana users are more likely to be involved in crashes, but that the increased risk may be due in part because marijuana users are more likely to be in groups at higher risk of crashes. In particular, marijuana users are more likely to be young men – a group already at high risk. NHTSA is conducting another crash risk study, however; this time, only serious injury and fatal crashes will be investigated.
We know that marijuana can be dangerous when combined with driving. Studies show that marijuana impairs psychomotor skills, lane tracking, and cognitive functions (Robbe et al., 1993; Moskowitz, 1995; Hartman & Huestis, 2013), but it is still unclear the extent to which it contributes to the occurrence of vehicle crashes. Some studies have attempted to estimate the risk of driving after marijuana use (Li et al., 2012; Asbridge et al., 2012), but these remain inconclusive in terms of predicting real-world crash risk.

I read inconclusive as unsettled, as stated.



You can find it yourself with minimal effort.

I respect your right to walk around wearing your I Heart 420 tee-shirt, cargo shorts and flip-flops over black socks after a few dabs.

You sound like every old cunt I've ever heard talk about cannabis. And I dab once every five years or so.

Was it the flip-flops over black socks that triggered you?


I only hope you're not sporting earrings and gray man-bun to complete the ensemble.

Just checking, as Red Neck BOhannon would say “happy chiefing”.



BTW the ensemble if you didn't get it was parody.


No need for an Old Fart to toss around Old Cunt, some might think they're akin.
