But think that the Greek Orthodox patriarch is justifying all this crap. What happened to Jesus’ words of loving thy neighbour?
Tesla has a product for storing the energy, it’s the Powerwall (https://www.tesla.com/powerwall)
This was observed already about 3000 years ago (well, about 1000 B.C.) in Ecclesiastes 8:9 where king Solomon wrote that“All of this I have seen, and I applied my heart to every work that has been done under the sun, during the time that man has dominated man to his harm.”
Man’s domination over man has not resulted in lasting good for the subjects.
Other things I like from the Ecclesiastes is 8:11:“Because sentence against a bad deed has not been executed speedily, the heart of men becomes emboldened to do bad.”
(To me that shows that human nature and willingness to mistreat others for personal gain has not changed much)
And Ecclesiastes 9:11“I have seen something further under the sun, that the swift do not always win the race, nor do the mighty win the battle, nor do the wise always have the food, nor do the intelligent always have the riches, nor do those with knowledge always have success, because time and unexpected events overtake them all.”
Looks like Putin with a wig:-P
I think a swedish (next door to Denmark) equivalent would be “förloppet av ditt sjukdomsförlopp” which in english would be someth like “the progression of your illness”
I think it’s a joke about people not waiting for anyone inside public transport and such to come out, and are also not waiting for their own turn to step into the bus/train/tram/etc but everyone is just trying to go in first
It’s like giving cops a cut of each ticket they give out
And yet people keep voting and even going ga-ga for some “new political hope” every X years.
And BTW there are no clear-cut consequences for politicians doing a “shoddy job”. Many times it is not possible to objectively grade a politicians overall job as “bad” vs “good”. Most often the grading is about whether s/he pleases the majority of his constituents or not. And the preferences of those constituents is not even some static thing but changes with the times. And there is the thing that some peoples political preferences consider something good that others consider bad. So while some people can prefer some environmental approach, others may be against it because it risks jobs or uses tax payers money or limits personal freedom or some other reason.
Brings to mind what Ecclesiastes 9:11 says in the Bible about a persons ability to control his own future:I have seen something further under the sun, that the swift do not always win the race, nor do the mighty win the battle, nor do the wise always have the food, nor do the intelligent always have the riches, nor do those with knowledge always have success, because time and unexpected events overtake them all.
Then there is the issue that some people think that God rules this world. But according to the Bible it is Satan that controls this world. This is why in Matthew 4:8,9 Satan was able to offer Jesus the rulership of this world, saying “I will give you all this authority and their glory, because it has been handed over to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. If you, therefore, do an act of worship before me, it will all be yours.”
Likewise 1 John 5:19 says that “the evil one controls the whole world”.
According to the Bible the hope for mankind is God’s Kingdom. This is the Kingdom that Jesus told his followers to pray for (in the Lord’s Prayer, at Luke 11:2-4) and it is also the Kingdom that Daniel 2:44 foretold would eventually take over the world.
If that is the case, how did it get the miles-thick ice/snow cover in the first place. Must have snowed there at some time-period in the past then. So leads to the question, why did it then stop snowing…
But about that question in the comic strip, someone had asked it on stackexchange:
The issues are commented on by talking heads but nothing actually changes (except that some things are getting worse).
