    You'll better off with just a FFP2 and a face shield like medical and retail service personnel do. It's also much more comfortable and looks better than wearing a gas mask. The good thing about face shields is that it can even be worn when you're eating.

    I've been warning about the MSM even before the hoax US election. There's now a danger that many countries will nationalise their national media and newspapers and ban foreign social media. A lot of journalist and reporters will be out of job soon. You don't need so many journalists when that time arrives.

    Are we still talking which mask is best, seriously.:rolleyes:

    I am yet to put one on and any business that asks me to wear one misses out on my money for the rest of my life.

    I choose to support local small business not multinational corporations (corpse's)

    If you are that brain dead to think a mask will save you then good luck to you, sorry if this offends any of my fellow SS members.:D

    Doesnt offend me at all and I'm with you on that.
    I dont go many places but I'll turn around and walk out if they ask me to, theres no problem.
    There are plenty of shops that will take my money and I support them.
    I know what places I dont want to support after all this, you can be sure of that.

    We do have some older members on ss and i can understand their concern with this flu.
    It can be brutal on older or sickly people but that's about where it stops.
    I hope everyone here remains healthy.

    Our law enforcement and most business owners understand and are cool about it. They want to make money like anyone does.
    I havent had any bad issues or run-ins with anyone over it yet.

    The issue of government enforcing mask wearing is feudalism. Respect for the elders and to avoid passing the flu. This is why Japanese, a seniority based society, wear flu (blue) masks and they never have to enforce it by legislation because people will wear it on their own if they feel unwell. The Chinese wear smog masks (white).

    If they do that, they'll ruin countless businesses, bloggers and vloggers who used social media for "friendly purposes", not political propaganda.

    Travel bloggers, fans of various things and activities, cultural groups will be ruined.

    Bloggers will still get away with it. But mainstream media and TV stations will fall under government control to prevent foreign penetration like what is happening right now. The amount of fake news or "regime propaganda" in the MSM is incredible.

    I'm now mostly reading from alt media to get real news.

    Now, they are trying to change the virus narrative. Very soon, the MSM will say it's from planet Mars and I think the brain washed sheeps will believe.

    Let's wait an see if:
    - we'll be "allowed" to take the "doggie muzzle" after people get vaccinate
    - there will still be cash or if we'll get chipped like pigs and get the salary through a QR code scan :D
    - they tell us: "more money? why do you need that? you've got universal basic income and plenty of entertainment, what more do you need?"
    - the next "pandemic" (sponsored by Microsoft) starts spreading soon... Bill Gates is so sure it will come in the next 3 years (how does this nerd know???) :D
    - we will be allowed to move around, travel around freely or... just like the Chinese with a "social credit score"

    Yes. I think it's 90-95 % FAKE.

    Not even the opposite is true.

    it's not valid when public transport is banning your entry.

    you will not be able to get around in a small city

    getting fined for freedom, un realistic.
    there is not much of a choice

    Buahaha; figures. o_O

    The United Nations Development Programme is facing several allegations of fraud and corruption linked to the multibillion-dollar Global Environment Facility, according to documents seen by the Financial Times. A copy of a draft report by UNDP’s office of audit and investigations, dated November 2020, described “financial misstatements” worth millions of dollars across UNDP’s portfolio of GEF-funded projects around the world. The report highlighted problems including signs of “fraudulent activities” at two country offices and “suspicions of collusion among the various project managers” at another, without naming the countries. “Issues identified by the audit could seriously compromise the achievement of the objectives of the audited entity,” the report said.
    --
    The audit of the UNDP’s GEF-funded projects — which covers 2018 and 2019 and is the first review of its kind since 2013 — comes against a backdrop of rising concern from some donor countries over management and oversight issues at the UNDP. An investigation by Foreign Policy in 2019 published whistleblower accounts alleging the misappropriation of millions of dollars at a UNDP-run GEF project in Russia. Twelve donor countries — including the US, France, Australia and Japan — have since sought an independent review of the UNDP’s handling of that project, according to a letter seen by the FT.

    Price of physical gold looks good but still too high for investment buy. I’m more keen on gold miners but they have hardly fallen. Strange times.

    Now dealers would have to sell at lower prices, just like in 2013, after the gold crash. If gold keeps falling, I expect outrageously high prices at dealers' shops.

    Back then we had to wait 1-2 years for the prices to become affordable. This was true for both gold and silver.

    This was recently released, couple days ago, I wonder what's the reason for it? It's amazing such a small thing can deliver up to 300kt. This looks like the sort of thing you use against godzilla monsters or aliens.

    I think gold has hit a short term bottom 2 days ago. Saw some kilobar buying. It has been a long time since I observed that. Big money nibbling after a long abstinence. Silver not moving though.

    I'm still able to get investment gold at only 1% premium but not buying for the time being. Already bought my new year gifts unfortunately.
