convoy rules
If my opponent moves his army from Tuscany to Piedmont and I convoy my Piedmont army to Tuscany via the gulf of lyons at the same time, will they swap places?

Interesting read
I'd like to hear what the right wing thinkers (and not trolls) think of this article, as well as the liberals here.

Mostly a criticism of market liberalism: https://jacobinmag.com/2017/05/handmaids-tale-margaret-atwood-trump-abortion-theocracy

Tax dodging and capital flight
Ok, this youtube video discusses it. In brief, company extracts mineral wealth, sells for a low price to parent company based in a tax haven, declares no/very little profit. ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ocm42ytXto )

Probably not in the Bible but...
Before Jesus took over John's ministry what did people think of the fact that a man in his upper 20s wasn't married and had no children? Wouldn't that have been exceedingly rare at the time?

I am retiring from Trolling
I will henceforth focus my efforts on promoting games, offering opinions on actual issues and an occasional contribution that may be amusing. My goal was never to see the forum overrun with nonsense. Sadly its becoming unreadable and the threads are so abundant that trolling is now all thats happening. Sorry webdip for ushering in this era.

Completely unrelated thought
You can easily walk out the door and abandon your life, start over and become a new person. But can you do the same to your mindset? Can you drop all previous prejudices/perspectives/opinions, (but not facts) and build a new world view? A new model for interacting with reality?

I seriously lost my cool last night, and I'm quite sorry. Although we discuss very serious, and sometimes life or death issues for some, that tone is way out of bounds.

About those earth rays..
Years ago, I started a discussion (and an infrequently used meme) about how I used to have severe headaches as a small child until a small metal device that my parents can't describe very well was buried in the frontyard and my headaches disappeared overnight. My parents cited mythical earth rays as the cause of the problem. The brilliant minds of webdip saw a placebo effect as the only possible answer. I found another possible explanation and would like your thoughts.

There was a stream of water running underneath our house. Due to friction, this stream of water would get ionised and an electromagnetic field would be created as a result of the ions moving. A correctly placed metal device could create its own electromagnetic field, canceling out the field created by the water. The iffy part is whether a baby would really be affected by a small difference in the magnetic field.
Thoughts?

At some point I will probably try to do the math properly, but for now I'm looking for any things I may have overlooked.

Steephie - part of what you propose is possible. Any moving charged object will create a magnetic field. However, to create a significant magnetic field you would need a very significant number of charged particles... A small stream running under your house just wouldn't produce enough of an effect.

If your house is built on top of the Hoover Dam then perhaps this would be a credible theory - maybe. But at the levels you're likely to be talking about, I'd think not. We are exposed to fairly low-level magnetic fields regularly, in our daily lives, and there is little or no credible evidence (as far as I'm aware) that low level exposure to magnetic fields has any implications for human health.

As for the size of fields required, that is testable. You can measure the magnetic/electric fields ( i suspect static electricity for some reason) and then create them manually (with a device set to those levels) to see if they create headaches...

Of course being more grownup may make you immune to such field levels, so maybe try varying it by an order of magnitude...

How would the level of ionization produced by a small stream compare with the Earth's natural ionization that Tesla was messing around with 100 years ago?

Barron von Trump just got admitted...
to middle school at St. Andrews Episcopal in DC. "Melania Trump cited the school’s diversity and academics as the reason behind the selection"
This was reported by Time Magazine.

Is anyone here aware of what kind of diversity a school with 38k tuition has? Even CAPT_Brad can't afford that!
