Hearing more about how many of America's F-22's were possibly damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Michael could be up to 10% of the U.S.'s F-22 fleet...

    Of course nature can strike anywhere, but you'd think there would some sort of plan to evacuate all that equipment ahead of a massive hurricane. Even if the jets were unable to fly, there should have been some sort of plan to transport them with trucks (or at least they should consider doing this for the next hurricane).

    How would they use trucks for things which would take up the road ways during an evacuation... Lives are going to be more important than military equipment and there was only about 2 days notice this was coming and even then it was not clear this was going to be a major hurricane at landfall.

    Shouldn't military bases be designed to resist missile strikes etc. though? I mean sure, it was a really bad storm, but don't they have bunkers for this sort of thing?

Spent almost 10 hours in busses going from montreal to kitchener. My brain is half-dead, but I have to say, seeing how developed canada was out of the window compared to Libya, it hurts me in the saddest sense. I can't respect diaspora who leave Libya behind to stay here for life.

    Do you see any odds of Libya having a central stable government in the near-future, Outlook?

    If haftar re-unites the country, mmaayyybbeee, but the guy's old and already suffered a heart attack earlier this year. His army is also composed mostly of "reformed" militias, or literally just intimidated militias with new brigade names under his command. If he goes, it's likely conflict will start again.

    If he controls the country, becomes dictator, and then consolidates power, then it'll either go back into anarchy or a new person takes his place.

    If Russia comes in mid civil-war, then the conflict escalates into hell 2.0, as NATO counter-weights, and the eyes that were once looking at Syria start looking at Libya.

Sadly Paul Allen has died due to complications from his cancer. My question is why these geniuses, as they undoubtedly are, with their enormous wealth don't dedicate massive amount of it to combat the very things that are going to kill them? Surely we could accelerate progress if even one billionaire was a little selfish?

    5th MP mentioned a People's Vote. Theresa May adamant that a People's Vote was already held in June 2016.

    I'd be wary about this if I were you, Frizz. After all, Africa is notable for its homophobia. :(

    I tried to start playing it, but if you play on the challenging/survival mode it starts you on acid (or radioactive, etc.) planets and you just die repeatedly while trying to complete the tutorial.

    I'll probably come back to it sometime. Like if they ever make it compatible with PSVR!

    They are considering a VR port, but it will be difficult to achieve.

What with Leslie and soon Michael hitting Portugal, Spain, and France (on top of Ophelia's impacts in the UK & Ireland last year), it's starting to look like we're going to have an annual Eastern Atlantic Hurricane Season.

Our Brexit Secretary (Dominic Raab) just met with Michel Barnier in Brussels, but they failed to reach consensus on the Withdrawal Agreement. Rumours that a November meeting may not even happen at all. So a no-deal hard Brexit looks more and more likely. Scary times.

    The 'unofficial' deadline for reaching a deal is tomorrow, hence the negotiators working over the weekend to get something.

    If that fails, then...

Really excited for the Carnegie International! This will be my first time going. I was too young to really appreciate what it was last time it happened.
