Re: Favorable temperature for camping and dog

Surface temperature is not how temperature is normally recorded: atmospheric/air temperature is the standard of measurement. The reason for this should be fairly obvious, given that our bodies/skin tends to interact with the air, and not with the ground. The ability to cook an egg on asphalt has no ...

Re: so, you say that you had problems with "registrovka"?...

You're saying you don't think people should have to get vaccinated, and that vaccine manufacturers should have to take legal responsibility. I'm saying that if they chose not to get vaccinated, maybe they should have to take legal responsibility if they spread the virus. Also, I don't get your point...

Re: 300 Afghan army soldiers cross near Pamir Highway

Given the rapid rate of Taliban advancement, I would think most border areas will be under their control fairly shortly. As it is, they're already almost there. https://www.reddit.com/r/MapPorn/comments/ocwhgb/a_month_in_afghanistan_taliban_gains_throughout/ https://preview.redd.it/daej1xb1jz871.jpg...

Maybe those who get infected should have to take criminal and financial responsibility if they spread it?

Re: Kyrgyzstan coronavirus travel re-opening/restrictions Q&A

There's no problem with disagreeing with a country's policies, and nobody has claimed you don't have the right to disagree. It is, however, rather absurd to claim the policies at hand are "blatantly arbitrary and discriminatory," and ridiculous to be harbor a grudge because you couldn't convince a b...
