    In good news, the vaccinations are happening closer and closer in the circles around me, so we'll get there this summer. Hopefully by the end of summer we're through the worst of this and can look towards a better situation.
    Yeah, same. Here in Baltics we are finally seeing big deliveries now that the manufacturers have finally fixed the problems they had and the percentages across Europe overall are going up quite fast. Should be OKayish at the end of June.

    Oh the joy in knowing that you realise it's a spin, when taking it from such a misrepresenting website as you do. Well either that, or you're as ignorant as you seem.

    I don't know how they fudged the data, but I'm going to assume just adding the EU data together?

    So if Germany has 0.1 deaths per million and France has 0.3 deaths per million, they'd represent that as 0.4 deaths per million? Obviously I don't know the real numbers, they're just an example

    No, they did it by only comparing the latest 7 days.

    That's why I wrote:

    However, when it comes to covid-vaccination the uk is instead using the total. as the EU and the uk are now about about even in terms of vaccinations per capita during the last week. (Strange how stopping the AZ vaccine exports to the uk that weren't planned at all and couldn't be stopped due to a superior iron-clad contract according to uk officials, increased the vaccination rate in the EU and decreased it in the uk.)
    And clearly not comparing with individual countries, since the country in Europe that has the highest total percentage of covid-vaccinations is now a small Island nation with English as official language and is part of the EU (and world-wide third behind Israel and UAE).

    Ah okay, must've either misread or misunderstood what you wrote then, my bad.

    Actually that part of the debunk doesn't make sense. Bullets fall to the ground so you have to aim higher than the target - especially if you want the longest possible range.

    Whether the bullets would actually hit the targets and be effective at that range is a different matter.

    A more relevant statement is that having this spat on the day of the election was perfect timing for BoJo.

    If you have to aim that much up, you're not able to properly aim, and even if you were, wind drift would be practically impossible to predict, so you'd never hit anything

    Some are saying here in the UK, that lone minuteman should be up for the Victoria Cross for repelling the French invasion with his 17th century musket. Some eurochums moaning about peak Brexit in response however are not amused... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBWN_54BICQ

    No one here is surprised there are others on your.... intellectual level as you soar at a height close to that of freshly mowed blades of grass.

    Now on to the many businesses you helped ruin because you don't understand how borders and international trade work. Like this one

    Sure would be nice if those eurochums who all voted for Brexit would stop moaning about how Brexit is now ruining their livelihoods.

    Muskets aren't artillery, but leaving all that aside, don't overthink it. Neither did I. It's good enough to debunk Dribs and that's good enough for me. Those Muskets had the range of modern pistols, so if you can't see water on this image, they must be flying navy or landbased ships. Either way, his shitpost should have been moderated, but as usual that's not happening...

    Zero sympathy for her, though. She wanted this, she got exactly what she voted for. Bit late for regrets, she made her bed, now she gets to lie in it. She thought she'd make a better future? Nah man, she didn't think. And that was only the first mistake of hers...

    Oh she got exactly what she deserved and it's nice to see people suffering the consequences of their own poor choices. But she serves the purpose in that it's another example of Brexit's abject failure that Dribbles will dance around. And in that we can all rejoice.

    And it's a randomly moving target; so one wouldn't expect good accuracy anyway.

    Allegedly muskets can fire slightly more than 1 km; I don't know if that includes the particular weapon.

    However, the basic idea was to project patriotism to win votes, as the last refuge of BoJo. Never under-estimate the gullibility of the voters.

    Don't let the 4chan kiddos rile you up. It's not worth the infraction. This dude doesn't care about the suffering of British people. He just wants to goad you into an infraction. He should be moderated, but alas... moderation on this forum is being its usual self.

    Trying just a bit too hard now.

    I do love the fact you thanked Aldi, though. Are you fond of the German chain?

    Meanwhile, I saw Pringles were rocking a whopping £3 price tag in my nearest Morrisons yesterday.

    That's exactly why they chose certain times to post. They've said it before on one of the many, many accounts they've gone through.

    It's quite sad really. What an empty life they must lead...
