Re: The Thread Of Randomness

Post by Chrill »

In 1986, Swedish prime minister Olof Palme was shot and killed while walking home from a night out with his wife Lisbeth. The murder was never solved, although a man was wrongfully sentenced before being acquitted in a higher instance.

On Wednesday, the so-called Palme group (a group of the Stockholm Police working solely on the murder of our Prime Minister), will present their findings. They have announced, earlier this year, that they will be identifying who was behind the attack. Whether or not they will identify an individual or a group remains to be seen, but this investigation has been active for almost 35 years and being able to identify the killer(s) is a massive development.

The Wikipedia article, and the many theories mentioned therein, is a good read:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassina ... Olof_Palme

Personally, the two most likely theories mentioned in this article I identify as "South Africa" and "The Skandia Man".

Well they did name The Skandia Man today, but the evidence is circumstantial. He was at the scene, his description fits that of the suspect, and he left by running in that direction.

However, there is no technical proof, no weapon, no DNA. All in all, this does not feel all that certain. Likely, yeah, but certain? No.

Just droppes in today, a bit early in the morning, because I liked to play a new game, looking for new content and updating maybe.
I'm amazed by how large the Bananas list have become. Hard to find the right update.

But that didn't matter, because in the meanwhile I discovered mods for Transport Fever which include trains from the Netherlands...
So, it's back to Transport Fever.

Question to other players of Transport Fever: Is the map 1:3 really bigger than 1:1? It does look more rectangular.

Oh yeah, I bought Doom via my Steam account for only €6,-... Well, €5,99 actually.
I'm back gaming the new stuff!

EDIT: I found out about the map size, but I like 1:1 better.

Over a year ago now I think - a few former moderators were retired at that point.

Scotland has been absolutely hammered by rain today and last night.

This is the Lochgelly Raceway, betwen Dunfermline & Kirkcaldy
It used to look like this: https://i.ibb.co/HpC16qg/photo-2020-08-12-14-19-26.jpg
It now looks like this: https://i.ibb.co/BCc6fMg/photo-2020-08-12-14-19-28.jpg

A train has also derailed in the downpour which is looking a serious accident, I've posted about that in the real world forum here; viewtopic.php?p=1235137#p1235137

I think a less-bloody naumachia would be a fascinating spectator sport.

Is there anyone here who has a clue when the new Maglev will be introduced in Europe's temperate climate, this year? After all, it's 2020 already.

I wish OpenTTD was a forecast to this.

oh wow that company is still alive. I'm fairly sure it lives off people wanting to see if the service is as horrible as the website (from what I have heard, probably yes).
the reviews for the company have the most ridiculous replies from the owner, for example;

Not another useless announcement:

I'm quitting the habit of quitting recreational weed. It has been enough, I'm not going to mdissappoint myself any further.
The friday is a good day for some smokin'. It's not much more.
