    How the electric car dies

    The biggest issue with electric cars is many people cant charge them up at home, it is not an option so they are not an option. Until you can charged them up in seconds like a petrol car then they work for a large percentage of people. I only wish all the subsidies that have been put into electric cars and all the money spent putting up charging stations had been spend on getting hydrogen fuel cell cars on the road and putting fueling stations around the country as well

    Brexit

    Given the large number of people already having to use food banks, an estimated 590,000 in 2016-2017, and the large number of people in fuel poverty, around 11.1% of homes in England in 2016 which is around 2.55 million people any policy that is going to increase them is just stupid. https://news.sky.com/story/operation-yellowhammer-government-no-deal-brexit-documents-released-11807339 Lets not forget Medicine supplies will be "particularly vulnerable to severe extended delays" - Sorry folks that medicine you need it is stuck at the border Possible clashes between UK and EU fishing vessels The possibility of urgent action to ensure access to clean water if there is a failure in the supply of chemicals - although the likelihood of this is considered "low" - Might be low but not work risking

    Brexit

    The rebate is taken off what we are due to pay before we pay anything. So we at no point ever sent £350 million per week. Just like if you buy something that is on sale, you dont pay the full price then have them refund your money

    Brexit

    Except the £350 million figure is a lie. It 2018 we paid around £13 billion to the EU, this is after the rebate which is deducted before we pay anything, this is £250 million a week. In the EU spent around £4.2 billion in the public sector in the UK in 2018. I can only find a figure from 2016 for what they pay to the private sector which is £2.3 billion, if we assume this is a average yearly amount then the UK has a net contribution of £6.5 billion or £125 million a week. The figure was a lie which many people still believe.

    Brexit

    Multi question referendum. First question, Leave or Stay. Second Question, if leave then deal or no deal. Second question only counts if first question gets leave We have had 3 years of lies about how once we leave everything will be so much better. So many lies about the EU. I hate that anytime anyone points out a negative about leaving the EU it is called scare-mongering. The last 3 years have been about 2 sides shouting at each other and no body talking about the real issues about brexit. The referendum was advisory so there was never any need to follow the result. How about when we have a referendum where neither side breach electoral law. Leading to a judge declaring that have the referendum being binding he would have had to overturn the result do the the illegal actions of the leave campaign. Remember the bus with £350 million for the NHS which was a massive lie Might not have been on the ballot, but the leave campaign constantly said we would get a deal. No one was talking about no deal. Many people have expressed since that they only wanted out with a deal I got little from either side, being in Scotland that is not really a surprise.

    Brexit

    I doubt the will of the people is a no deal brexit. Not one brexit mp of senor member of any of the leave groups campaigned for a no deal brexit, they all said that we would get a good deal. Now the same people are saying that we must leave come hell or high water, with some saying that no deal is the only acceptable option. Put the options to the public and see what they want, No deal, some deal or no brexit. Make the referendum binding unlike the last one

    Brexit

    It doesn't matter if you are anti brexit, pro brexit or pro no deal, what is happening is an unelected PM is suspending the democratic parliament to try and push thought a policy that he knows MP's would vote to stop. This sets a dangerous precedent

    Will be interesting to see what effect the Classic servers have on the population of the non classic servers. Could WOW classic be the WOW killer

    How to lose players and alienate games

    We all have a breaking point, but when you have just pissed off your player bases with a loot box scam and they called you out on it, maybe calling them ass-hats is not the best way to apologise. I suspect many off us here have had to deal with horrible customers at some point, but I doubt many would have say anything to the customer. Bitch about them internally with other staff but not to their face. That is a sure fire way to loose players

    Breaking: New Race Announced

    Given that the racial traits are so small and insignificant, what is the benefit of a new race other that the look slightly different. As for the ability to change race, class restrictions applying, who has reached max level playing one race that they didnt like. Surely you would notice you didnt like the look of that race when you were still in the starter zone and reroll
  16. From 2016-2018 the woman's team had earning of $50.5 million where as the men's team generated $49.9 million. This is not during the world cup. Given the world cup this year I would guess that they would be higher again this year for the women. These figures are from audited financial statements from the U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) as seen by the Wall Street Journal. In 2016 the Women generated $1.9 million more than the men
  17. The men's team came 3rd in the first ever world cup in 1930. Since then the best they have done is quarter finals. Other than this they seem to go between not getting out of the group stage and getting out of the group but them losing the next match. Although it must be said the standard of woman's football worldwide leaves a lot to be desired. Too many countires don't give a crap about it, unlike the US. The Woman's team bring in more money then the men's team but they get paid less, that is wrong. In the past the argument that the men's game brought in more money so they got paid more was commonly used, and for good reason, but that is no longer a valid argument. At club level it is a different story.

    WoW 8.2 is releasing against FFXIV Shadowbringers

    I wonder how much of that is due to younger gamer's being more interested in games like Fortnight and Apex Legends. People that grew up playing MMOs now dont have the time to spend playing them like they used to
