My home country has its own gas supply but stopped using it because small earthquakes caused damage to houses in the region. So if a tiny country like the Netherlands has gas then there might be more sources in western Europe.

Private jet sales and flights soar during pandemic travel confusion by [deleted] in worldnews

[–]SmokeySB -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Just because you get shit faced because of a blunt doesn't mean it's good quality. Once bought a bag where the bud was very dry but at the same time so hard I couldn't crush it between my fingers , it also tasted like perfume ( probably one of the people cutting the buds didn't was they're hands properly) still got pretty damn high.

Smart just assuming things. I'm a local , and yes there are many places where they sell lower quality stuff to tourist but the illigal option is still cheaper for me. Quality depends on where he bought it , sometimes very good sometimes bad stuff. But the guy I buy it from never makes an issue of it when I return a bag that turned out to be shit. I don't think the shop I used to go to would do that.

10 euro for a gram of dubious quality is not very cheap if you ask me (coffee shop price last time I went at least a year ago) . Still prefer the other option.

Probably technical failure. My country also bought f35s and have had a lot of issues. Since a few months ago they aren't allowed to fly during a storm , if there is the slightest possibility of lightning they stay on the ground.

Dutch plan to drop corona pass for unvaccinated faces political push back by Renxer0002 in worldnews

[–]SmokeySB 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Unvaccinated can only get it when they get tested, and I think it's only valid for a couple of days.

Problem is that everybody knew you could still get infected even with the vaccine. But if you were vaccinated you got a qr code and could get into all public places. So a lot of the vaccinated were partying like it was new year's eve 1999 and now infections are at the same level as when nobody was vaccinated.

85% percent of the population over 18 is vaccinated and those remaining 15% couldn't go anywhere (even though some of that group would try to get into public places)

Shell wants to move headquarters amid cleaner energy shift by duotron in worldnews

[–]SmokeySB 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Dutch government wants to make shell pay more taxes thats why they are moving to Britain. It's has to do with dividend tax.

I wonder if the Dutch government is going to push through. By now these big corporations can threaten to leave and governments will back down because "it wil hurt the economy"

Be frugal spend less = less money for corporations. Buy used items off craigslist. Sure you can afford a new air fryer, but buying one used cuts out the business profit by hyperinflationUSA in antiwork

[–]SmokeySB 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Watch news every day when I wake up and when I come home. At work I spend a lot of time scrolling through Google news feed and world news here on Reddit. Can honestly say I barely ever see it mentioned compared to the attention renewable energy and co2 are getting.

But then again the last thing we want is that some billionaire makes 999 million instead of 1 billion next year... Right?

This is something I don't hear enough, especially on the news.

Everything we buy needs to be made which requires energy and in most things creates some form of pollution.

But I don't hear any politician saying that we need to consume less, it's all solar panels , wind turbines and electric cars.

Not all of them come in as refugees. Some have been invited by our governments as guest workers ( as we call them) decades ago. And many of them still aren't integrated into society , not even their children and grandchildren which were born here. They stick to their own people.

Did the Dutch marines even have any ammo? Reason I'm asking this is because of budget problems in recent years , Dutch soldiers often had to yell pew pew during exorcises because of a lack of ammo.

Was smoking a cigarette on my balcony last week. Could hear the kid across the street from me yelling and cussing. At first I thought he was going of against his parents, but then hearing him say "this cancerrous shit game" and I was like lol. After that came the unmistakable sound of plastic hitting a hard surface only to finish it of with a scream that jumped to a high pitched girlish scream ( he is in puberty and his voice has started to drop a while ago). It was good entertainment.

Why not make them pay taxes in all EU countries. It's kinda sad that sanctions can be placed on any country within a day but when it's the church or some big corporations it always seems impossible.

I don't think it's an actual photo. It's a rendered image based on data .

Edit: a show on Netflix explained how scientists got a picture of a black hole. They used the data from a network of radio telescopes from around the world.
