    Jury Duty

    In USA - how the court knows your real address? I guess in like elsewhere in the world - in USA you might have a house or apartment in different locations and you actually might live in a place, which belongs to somebody else? And then while being in the jury group - can you basically do a coin...

    Jury Duty

    Please explain the "jury duty" thing for non US citizens :) How is the notice "You have to do the jury duty" delivered and can you say something like "i have vacation planned and do not have any free time left" etc?

    Coronavirus

    Well, according to my wife, it is vice versa :-). She had a first test in april (because visiting a specific doctor required test) and she told me, that the one done in spring was not annoying or feelable at all. Testing was done in the same place and by the same company. This time our daughter...

    Coronavirus

    I would say the nose swab is currently not as painful as it is told on news (i had COVID test last monday). IMHO less annoying than anesthesic injection to the backspine (before the knee surgery), cleaning with the nail kind of thing inside the tooth channel by dentist or hornet (i.e not wasp)...

    Coronavirus

    Well, the kids certainly touched themselves and had otherwise close contact plenty of times (5 days at school from 8-14 and after that at home), playing with each other. We did not do any hyper-super cleaning at our home when she went home.

    Coronavirus

    My tiny experience. 2 weeks ago, 30.10 a classmate of my daughter stayed some hours at our home (60 m2 apartment) after school with my daughter and wife. When i arrived i basically said hello and good bye and the classmate left. On monday morning 2.11, the mother of the classmate called and...

    Trump's Coup Attempt

    My point was, that nowadays in USA it is quite unrealistic, that US army attacks its citzens should the POTUS want it. Because, well, the army members most of the time want to have good time in their homeland. It is IMHO only possible should the US outsources all its army services from China...

    Trump's Coup Attempt

    How would that work in real life, specially in USA? Doesn't most of the generals and other high ranking persons have wives at home, who might get pissed for that kind of shenanigans? My wife would write a pretty LONG letter to me (when she is angry, she usually will wrote a long letter for the...

    The *official* Election Day Game Thread!

    And regarding the popularity of blacks, specially outside of the USA - IMHO the problem is, that media is showing us the (i kind of exaggarate here :-) ) the thrashy blacks or the behaviour which is not common here, but not decent ones who could be role models for everybody no matter what is...

    The *official* Election Day Game Thread!

    Based on photos and information that i have gathered: 1. Yes, i claim (which is probably not a good or exact word i want to say due the language barrier) that Stasi and KGB kept the East Germany in a mental ruin; because well, East Germany looked like a modern western country for those who lived...

    The *official* Election Day Game Thread!

    Yes, i agree with you about the Hiroshima, however, are you claiming that the combination of Stasi and KGB power is less compared to the state power, for example in Alabama or other southern state at the same period, for example between 1945-1985? What i do not understand is why oppressed ones...

    The *official* Election Day Game Thread!

    Yes, i would not care, if the reasons are artificially created and other people are blamed in a style "i have to be in different school or different bus". For some reasons, others can survive even if there is a combination of carpet bombing and general poverty. Just ask people in Dresden or...

    The *official* Election Day Game Thread!

    Yeah right! Not sure whether you response is sarcasm or real. Why do you think there was less crime in Soviet Estonia than in modern Estonia? Displaying our national flag was almost sentence to death. Punishment was little bit less, if you celebreted Christmas. I do not miss the Soviet time...

    The *official* Election Day Game Thread!

    I would say statements and attitudes like this is the reason why Trump got the amount of votes he got and why people getting more divided both in big and small countries. For some reason, Dubai, cities in Saudi Arabia and also in Japan are much safer than those in USA which have more Democratic...

    Coronavirus

    I hope i quoted somewhat properly. In general i agree with you, however it seems, that there are tendency that "University degree + fancy job title" automatically means "expert" who is above the god. Specially in a IT field but also elsewhere. Even in medical field - i am sure that reading...

    Coronavirus

    No, although i graduated the Tallinn Technical University (IT Engineer) we did not had many energy related subjects. Still, based on those lessons and with some talking with the tutors, i would not be against to have nuclear plant in Estonia. If Greta is not an expert, why did she received so...

    Coronavirus

    Well, as it is a COVID thread - then the knowledgable ones should also not cause any panic moment a la do not visit your parents (how can a virus free person infect their parents) etc etc. We had tiny debate in Estonia where people asked a document from a doctor, that they are in good shape...

    Coronavirus

    Maybe yes, maybe not :-). So - is that person an expert who claims, that nuclear energy and nuclear power plants are bad? Should i go back to university - because i believe-think, that nuclear energy is pretty decent if you know what you do compared to solar energy. Is Greta Thunberg an expert...
