Yes, the are actual concentration camps. One is operational and more are on the way. This applies even to vaccinated people. So, how do civil rights are reconciled against mandatory detention?

The dryer here seems to be plugged into a 120V outlet. It's also on an extension cord. Anyone see anything like that before? I suppose it's actually a 240V connector which is the same size as a standard 120V connector but having one or more pins turned 90 degrees.

I may have asked about this before. Problem is, that here in Spain the DCF signal is so weak that clocks can only sync during 01 to 05 AM, and often not even that, so that my clocks can be in error for mi...
