This same backer also posted this as a reply to another backer's comment, who was pointing out that she was again posting at The Orbit.

Funnily enough, Richard, when I attempted to comment on Heina's blog, my comments never appear to have passed moderation. It's almost like Heina doesn't want to answer any questions relating to this

Ha! This is hilarious: the Independent Publishers Group, which distributes books for (among many others) Heina Dadabhoy's publisher Pitchstone Publishing (**) now lists December 2021 as the estimated release date for "The Skeptics Guide to Islam."

If that actually occurs on that date, it would be over 9 years since she raked in nearly $10K from the kickstarter, and 8 years, 11 months from the date backers were initially supposed to get their digital copy of the book.

want us to leave.

Dead as the DoDo .. Tomorrow (wed) there will now be two votes.
1, To take 'No Deal' off the negotiating table (not binding) it will get through as the the majority or our MP's are remainers, and a bunch of fucking idiots.
2, To go back to the EU and ask them if we (May's useless government) can extend Article 50 which is the mechanism for leaving. This will also get through. Kicking the can down the road for more pointless negotiations. This can only be ratified though with all of the other 27 EU member states agreeing and will only be considered if we need it to organise a general election or a 2nd referendum. Michel Barnier the EU's chief negotiator has tweeted this evening (tue) and basically said forget it.

https://i.imgur.com/Hx8yEi7.png

God only knows what will happen now but if there's no more progress then we'll leave on March 29th with no deal by default. #LetsGoWTO.
I've predicted a few times May's impending political doom and she's defied all odds but I really don't see how she can possibly survive this, she has embarrassed the nation and allowed the EU to walk all over her and humiliate us in the process. She has to go.

Because it's not Brexit. The DUP and the ERG are the only ones in that fucking shithouse of commons who are actually honouring the referendum result, which was to leave.

So they're now likely to get an extension, referendum or even softer Brexit than May's deal.

I don't think so. read my previous post. Lots of caveats before article 50 can be ratified and even if it is and they force a 2nd referendum, that will have to go through months of legislation and preparation by the electoral commission to set up. So if A50 is extended then we (UK) would still be a member of the EU and therefore be able hold candidates for the EU parliamentary elections in May. Nigel Farage's new Brexit party and UKIP would most probably sweep the board which would shock the establishment even more and virtually deem any 2nd referendum a non starter.
Don't believe the crap in the media or press, they really haven't caught the mood of the country, people are fucking angry and pissed off. Any 2nd vote on leave or remain would most likely result in a bigger margin for leave.
My best guess right now is we bumble along till March 29th and leave on WTO terms. The much maligned 'No Deal' Brexit.

And now it's time for my bed ..zzzzz

I don’t get the admissions scandal. If your kid is as dumb as a rock, doesn’t like school and just wants to party, why give someone a half million dollar bribe to get them into Stanford? Unless it’s for an MRS degree with someone like Bill Gates. Even then, rent them a house near frat row and save some dough.

Unless you just can’t admit to your elitist friends that you have stupid/lazy kids. Oh yes, my kid is at Stanford...

What Mogg really said.
I joined Twitter in 2017 so the billboard is fundamentally dishonest. It is designed as a tweet and is a highly selective quote. I have never supported a second referendum of the type proposed by the People’s Vote campaign.

In the House of Commons on 24 October 2011, I was discussing the idea of a mandate referendum for David Cameron to begin his negotiations on our terms of membership of the European Union, followed by a decision on what he had achieved.

Both these referendums would have taken place while we were still members of the EU and before any decision to leave. However, the government decided on a simple in/out referendum after the negotiations, so this mandate option was not used.

Sick in bed yesterday, I re-watched Avengers Infinity War.
Just now, in a sleepless latenight Nyquil fever, I figured out how to repair the damage done by Captain Marvel, to the Marvel Cinematic Universe & by Brie Larson, to our universe. No Captain Marvel spoilers... I haven't seen it. My minor improvements are in feverish red...


Start with the scene where the Guardians of the Galaxy first meet Iron Man, Spider-Man, & Dr. Strange, in the ruins of Thanos' homeworld.

Mantis- the oriental bug-chick empath-- notices Dr. Strange looking like this...

http://www.48min.com/wp-content/uploads ... -times.gif

It's already been established that Spidey is a movie nerd, as he we've seen him invent battle moves based-on 'really old movies' The Empire Strikes Back & Aliens, as well as discussing Footloose with Star-Lord. So Spidey should have a line of dialogue saying that Dr. Strange looks like a VHS tape fast-forwarding & rewinding.

Then Dr. Strange tells Iron Man that he indeed travelled forward in time-- to see 14,000,501 possible futures.
And the good guys win in just 1. Dr. Strange should keep flickering, with the FF>> RWND<< effect. Mantis should put her hand on his temple & see what Strange sees: splice-in the trailer to the Captain Marvel movie, where Brie Larson falls to Earth in a BLOCKBUSTER VIDEO store


Mantis reacts to the Captain Marvel trailer, her face frozen in elongated shock & awe...

https://i.imgur.com/cC9zABt.jpg

Then Thanos shows-up & kicks everyone's ass. Thanos almost kills Tony Stark. Dr. Strange trades his Infinity Stone medallion for Tony's life. Elsewhere in the film, Captain America tells the holographic asshole senator-- that Earth just lost our last-best-hope, Iron Man. If that were true... but Iron Man can't save us this time... then Thanos would win. By tampering with fate-- trading Iron Man's life for someone-else who must die-- Dr. Strange created the one-in-14-million victory scenario. The person who Thanos killed instead of Iron Man... is Spider-Man!

In the scene immediately-prior to the one I just described-- Thor, Rocket Raccoon & Groot travelled to the homeworld of The Collector (Benicio Del Toro). The Collecter held one of the Infinity Stones, but Thanos looted it. In a desperate bid to re-connect with far-flung team-mates,Dr. Strange should use his fiery rings to teleport Mantis to The Collector's lair. But she arrives too late. Everyone's gone. She wanders silently among the piles of looted treasure amassed by The Collector... walking right-past the Monolith from 2001 because why-not?... eventually pausing in front of Edvard Munch's 'The Scream', matching her own Home Alone On VHS facial expression. :o She's still there, staring at the painting, when we briefly see her turn to Thanos-dust, at the end of the movie. Or maybe she lives? Yeah, ok, Mantis lives.

OK... next... edits to Captain Marvel... which I haven't seen...

The only change necessary is a pre-credits scene, in which a digitally de-aged 1990's Aunt May-- Marissa Tomei in her full My Cousin Vinny bighair glory-- is on a first date with Ben Parker... who will one day be Spidey's "Uncle Ben". The young couple goes to Blockbuster Video, rents 'Scream' or 'Scream 2' or 'Scream 3' or whatever year it is. At the register, May admires a Scream mask. Ben buys it for her.
https://i.imgur.com/yprAxTz.png?1
Back at Ben's 90's-slacker-grunge apartment, the pull bong hits & have sweaty sex with Ben wearing the Scream mask, with the movie playing on the VCR in the background. After Captain Marvel plummets to Earth, crashing into Blockbuster... we see the young May & Ben drive into the strip-mall parking lot, attempting to return the Scream videotape. But the store is demolished. In the flashback-montage scenes of girl & young-woman Captain Marvel overcoming adversity... snippets of The Scream are shown, as well as flashes of Edvard Munch's Scream, and Tyler Durden's penis because 90's. The flashback montages also contain flashes of Marvel Movies which could-have existed in 14 million alternate realities, Spider-verse style, instead of Captain Marvel. Like a movie starring Ant-Man's sidekicks. A Groot solo movie. An all-Stan-Lee-cameo movie. Moon Knight. She-Hulk. Alpha Flight.


AVENGERS: ENDGAME

Earth reacts to Thanos thanos-ing half of everybody. People have a thousand-yard stare on their faces, like after 9/11. Thanos has apparantly won. But he knows something's-wrong. He knows that Dr. Strange did-something to select the one future where Thanos ultimately fails.
So Thanos tries to solve the mystery. For example, Thanos goes to Dr. Strange's west-village Sanctum Sanctorum & tortures Dr. Strange's assistant Wong, searching for answers. But learns nothing.

Iron Man Tony Stark goes to Queens. He visits Aunt May & tells her that Peter Parker turned to dust in his arms, on a distant planet. Aunt May is distraught. When Iron Man leaves... we see Aunt May enter her living room & run her hand over a wall of old VHS tapes. Titles like Aliens, Footloose & Empire Strikes Back. Mostly home-taped. But one film is still in it's chunk Blockbuster container, never returned. Scream. She flashes-back to all the times Uncle Ben fucked her brains out on the couch, with these films on the VCR in the background. She flashes back to when Uncle Ben was murdered... how she retreated-into re-watching these movies, with young distraught Peter Parker as new viewing companion. We see her reach under the couch & find the old Scream mask, with her 1990's 'rabbit' vibrator tucked inside.

Eventually, we see Thanos' attention occupied with all of Earth's remaining superpowered costumed heroes, trying to overcome him in battle, but failing. No superpowered hero can defeat him. Even villains try & fail. But Aunt May rolls up on Thanos in Sam Raimi's Olds Delta 88. She dons The Scream Mask & whips-out a 90's-ass 9 millimeter, holds it sideways like a 90's blacksploitation film, and pumps a clip into him, shouting a catchphrase from New Jack City or Bad Boys 2 or something.

Thanos is momentarily weakened. Aunt May grabs a crowbar from the car's trunk & pries the glove off his hand. No mortal human can wield an infinity gem & survive... but she doesn't care if she survives. She snaps her fingers & restores all those killed by Thanos. The gauntlet turns on her, gripping her throat. Using her omnipotent willpower-- she will the gauntlet to turn to dust. But it tries to turn her to dust. They go back&forth, each dominant then losing. Finally they both burst into dust. Straight white male alt-right troll fanboys everywhere burst into tears. Brie Larson doesn't understand why they care about a female protagonist.

In a post-credits scene, we see Samuel Ell Nick Fury Jackson in his SUV, just like the end of Infinity War. But instead of getting Thanos'd, its a normal sunny day. He scrolls past Captain Marvel's number... and dials "Booty Call/ Aunt I'd Like To F". Teasing that the next Marvel movie will be an Aunt May porno.

Been a while, how are you all doin’?
That was a 747 in Afghanistan that had a load of military vehicles shift rearwards on take off. Bit silly to dub on the screaming piston engine effects.

Mrs Screw is currently in Africa, having flown on a 737 Max 8 from Istanbul to Nairobi. Due tonight to take two more Max 8s to Cairo and thence to Frankfurt. Yesterday the EU made the Frankfurt flight impossible, and today I hear Egypt has grounded them too. She has a long walk coming up, like watching Sammy Going South backwards.

Even your pop culture references are over half a century out of date.

Which can only be a good thing. CF the survival of your better half, and even (relatively) unrelated humans.

Joe Dante reviewed the trailer for 'A Boy 10 Feet Tall' (ie the US version) on the 'Trailers from Hell' YouTube Channel - it's no 'Captain Marvel' but perhaps we are all the better for that...

Which is fortunate, considering the only options which the 'People's Vote' proponents want to allow on the ballot are a) May's Deal (Brexit in name only, and quite considerably so) and b) Remain.

So it's just two flavours of staying in the EU, really. And frankly, if the remain lot are so confident of victory this time round, then you have to wonder why they won't risk putting the no-deal option on the ballot. In any case, it's clear that any second 'referendum' will simply be an establishment stitch-up, one where they'll make sure the people won't deliver the wrong result again.

Yesterday, I downloaded the Dissenter extension, to see how it measures-up to the fuss.
Today, it's disabled on my browser. With this pop-up...
https://i.imgur.com/BMuHKov.png

What does "change your data" entail?!

I'm betting the disabling is limited to the Chrome browser, due to Google freaking-out about Dissenter working-around Google's (& their crony companies') comment censorship.

One way I can see Dissenter getting shut-down-- is if someone went to Craigslist & used Dissenter to post sex-personals ads.
I see nothing to stop this from happening & the same law that got those ads pulled from Craigslist would (I think) apply to Dissenter.

I'm far more comfortable, than 2 or 3 years ago. Solid girlfriend, not-so-bad rent on the Lower East Side, interesting jobs-- with lots of time off in between. Saving a bit more money than i make... tho taxes & such will surely take me back down to zero. My dog is older, but happy.
Thanks for askin.

Am I correct-- that, at this point, none of us can be bothered to comment there, anyway?
They have become to boring to even troll. Sad.
Oh, I dunno. I've never let a hornet's nest alone before. Just short on time at the moment.
Not even annoying Hemant's Hordelings is much fun anymore. They've gone peak apeshit. They just call you a nazi and post retarded gifs.

My annual commemoration with a FB post, of Henning von Tresckow's attempt to assassinate hitler by smuggling a bomb onto hitler’s plane, has this year led to the freezing of my FB account.

Well that took me back. Last saw it in 1963 at the Odeon in Swindon. Did you see Harry H. Corbett was in it (and in the trailer, too). Bit of a change from Steptoe and Son.

I think I spotted him - but I was distracted by the major star (and one of my favourite actors) Edward G Robinson. Who probably is currently only remembered for the impression Hank Azaria does on the Simpsons (for Chief Wiggum) and perhaps 'Soylent Green'.
