Tell me about it. We have some of the highest taxed petrol in the world, and part of that tax was introduced ages ago as a "temporary" tax. A few times people have asked when it's going to be abolished, and basically politicians say it's never going to happen.

If politicians were obliged to keep their promises, they'd all be in jail. Except pic related, I suppose.

Aerial crowd shots are rarely used during large protest marches in metropolitan areas for the purposes of broadcast coverage of the protests by reputable news outlets, preferring "on-the-ground" coverage; this creates the illusion of the protestors and the police having roughly equal numbers and enhances the percieved power of the police departments, thus downplaying the size of the protest, even if crowd size estimates are provided.

How come the rope lasted 3200 years without falling apart? Rope is one of the fundamental human technologies. Archaeologists have found two-ply ropes going back 28,000 years. Egyptians were the first documented civilization to use specialized tools to make rope. One key why the rope lasted so long wasn’t the rope itself, it was the aridity of the air in the desert. It dries out and preserves things. Another key is oxygen deprivation. Tombs are sealed to the outside. Bacteria can break things down as long as they have oxygen, but then they effectively suffocate. It’s not uncommon to find rope, wooden carvings, cloth, organic dyes, etc. in Egyptian pyramids and tombs that wouldn’t have survived elsewhere in the world. Egypt’s desert conditions made possible the preservation of far more organic material than would have otherwise been the case. This in contrast to, say, Maya sites in Central America which are far younger, but from which almost no organic material has been recovered. The main difference is jungle vs desert conditions.

Good rope lasts forever.
Rope overall is one of the most underrated achievements of the human era. I am a big rope fan myself and I know all kinds of rope.
Nowadays the ropes just seems so unauthentic and plastic. I have some pretty cool rope from the 1700's that blows the modern shit out of the water.
