What if: Many Towns and Cities Were ISOTed From the Past to the Present Day?

2020.08.22 19:14 Alias_The_J What if: Many Towns and Cities Were ISOTed From the Past to the Present Day?

What if the following locations:
Adare, Limerick, Ireland​​​
Midrand, Guadeng, South Africa
Sunbury, Victoria, Australia
Torquay, Devon, England
Scranton, Pennsylvania, United States
Albany, Georgia, United States
Port Clinton, Ohio, United States
Picher, Oklahoma, United States
Comox, British Columbia, Canada
Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, United States (Or the two former bases therein, or the land they occupied)
along with surrounding suburbs, farmlands, woodlands, river & lake stretches, plus underground areas and local weather, are taken from January 3 (ISOTed) from the years:
2005
1995
1980
1967
1955
1935
1890
1790 (wild environment if unsettled, though some people included)
to 3 January 2020.
These towns and cities all surround the current location; the exact form depends on the location and needed connections (Picher has a ring surrounding it, with miles between the town centers; Pearl Harbor is stretched out in a line along the coast, with the bases almost touching). The geography is matched to these cities, such that there are no obvious disjoints; the old roads all connect to modern ones where appropriate (necessitating users to learn the new routes, while some already-existing roads may bend and twist in unfamiliar ways), while electrical, water, sewage, railroad, natural gas, telephone and internet lines are all joined into their appropriate networks, such that they function at least as well as they did at the time. Water, sewage and electrical networks may be improved in order to support the new populations (which in some cases may rise by hundreds of thousands). Farmland and river access will be guaranteed where appropriate; every Port Clinton has direct access to Lake Erie. As appropriate, "pristine" areas may contain endangered or extinct species; Picher from 1790 has bison, Albany of 1790 and 1890 has passenger pigeons, ivory-billed woodpeckers and carolina parakeets, while Port Clinton has blue walleye, for instance.
A lengthy Wikipedia article and a 3-minute Youtube video on the event are posted, explaining that this is a social experiment and not divine intervention.
What are the immediate effects and long-term ramifications of this event, both to the people in 2020 and the people moved to now?
As a start: Picher suddenly has a lot of it's ore restored. More generally, we'll get a good look at how people actually lived during these time periods (especially since utilities are still hooked up), including how stereotypes and cultural memories (such as the "country farmhouse" in the US, typified by Scranton and Picher), as well as how simple things like grocery shopping have changed. We'll also get to see how diseases have changed- the common cold and common flu of 1890 and 1935 are likely to be different from the ones of 2020, which will have implications both for us and for the people from those eras.

2020.05.31 19:23 cosypaws Jquery hiding drop down menus depending on previous selection keyboard input allows selection of hidden options.

Hello, I have been working on a project while out of work based on wordpress theme. It is going well and I have spent many months customising it (the author is no use really when it comes to custom coding).

I have a page that I have implement jquery .hide and .show for 2 drop down boxes. I want the user to select the county followed by the area. That is simple but the hidden options although not shown visibly are still avilable for selection via a keyboard input (ie pressing S would show areas beginning with S even though no shown in the drop down field).
You can witness this live on my site here https://www.cosycaravan.com/add-new-property/ (the city and neighbourhood fields).

  

 

If you can advise, how do I prevent keyboard shortcuts selecting the hidden menu items? Thank you I have found this forum a great resource.

2020.02.13 13:09 eelsemaj99 #GEXIII [Cornwall and Devon] - eelsemaj99 chats with reporters at the Green Table in Dartington

eelsemaj99 chats with reporters at the Green Table in Dartington

eelsemaj99 has been in Totnes and the South Hams all morning canvassing, handing out leaflets and speaking to members of the public. He has made his way to a favoured spot for lunch, where he is met by reporters. From BBC Radio Devon, BBC Spotlight, Radio Cornwall, and representatives from local newspapers.
He orders a chocolate and coffee marinated Beef Skirt Steak sandwich and a pint of Sandfords cider, and sits down at the round table by the entrance
eels - well shall we start?
Spotlight - Hi eels, so let’s get to the point. You’re best known as a Northern Irish politician. The Former First Minister, Cheerleader of the UUP. Why are you standing here this election?
eels - I was brought up between Devon and Belfast. Born in Exeter, went to Primary School in Torquay, moved to Belfast for Secondary school. In my political life, I’ve been proud to represent Northern Ireland for three terms, but I equally see myself as a Devonian, and it would be a great honour to represent the two counties of Cornwall and Devon in the next Parliament
Radio Cornwall - eels, in the past you’ve been heard to say some disparaging things about Cornwall. How can Cornish voters justify voting for you as you have said these things?
eels - I’m not sure I’d call them “disparaging”. I have often stood up for the idea that Cornwall is a part of England, and does not want or need any of the silly devolution proposals that have been pushed by the People’s Movement and others. I feel like those who don’t know Cornwall are quick to call it a country. I don’t think that. I know the priorities that Cornishmen hold, and that they are not that different than those in Devon or other rural areas in England. I’d rather spend my time and effort on delivering better public services, better connections, revitalising communities, than I would on giving cornish people local Government they don’t want. I love Cornwall, and I want to deliver on the priorities of the Cornish People, bread and butter issues that will improve the lives of everyday Cornishmen.
Devon Live - you are running a strongly focussed local issues campaign. Do you think the people will buy it, given that last election you were Prime Minister?
eels - I don’t think it’s an issue of “buying it”. There’s no trick. Will people vote for me? I hope so. The truth is that I am no longer Party Leader, and I don’t want to act like one. I have represented Northern Ireland as its local MP after I resigned as Conservative leader, and my wish is to represent you in the same way here in Devon and Cornwall. As a local MP. I have thought a great deal as to how I would best represent this constituency, and I am laying these ideas out in the streets and to the people of the Local Area
BBC Radio Devon - So would you take a cabinet post if the Conservatives were to return to Government?
eels - Depends on the post. If I was to be offered a post where I could directly positively affect the lives of local people, I would probably accept, but I would not accept any old post. For example, I am quite happy with my position as Housing, Communities and Local Government Secretary. This is a post I have wanted for quite a while, as I care deeply about local communities, and have laid out ideas as to how to fix them. I wrote the Housing and Communities sections of the manifesto for example, and I’d love to get to implement them. Other posts like say Culture or Education or Chancellor or Home secretary or Defence or something like that, I wouldn’t take as I feel like I couldn’t do anything in those posts to help local people, I probably would not take.
Herald Express - What will your priorities be to help people in Torbay and South Devon?
eels - First of all, I would try and help fix the crises of drug overuse and alcoholism that we so sadly see in Torbay. Recruiting more police will help stop those who have issues with drug gangs and those who live in fear for their lives. Increasing tax on legal drugs will help deter their use amongst the young. Cutting high street VAT rates will help revitalise the Torquay high street, so that people are more tempted to use it. I would petition the local authority to increase pedestrianisation along Queen’s Street and the High Street, and build more bike lanes. I would make sure that the trains on the Riviera line to Exeter and Exmouth continue to run regularly, and I would fight to ensure diversity in education, to keep open the Grammar Schools, and to promote Newton Abbot Technical College as a great place to learn vocational skills. Any other local newspaper want to ask the same question?
At this point, eels had finished his skirt steak sandwich, and heads up to the counter to buy a salted caramel brownie and a bottle of Luscombes ginger beer
eels - I’m never sure whether to get the ginger beer or the house lemonade
BBC Spotlight - So you’re in Totnes today so it’d be remiss not to mention the environment. What will you do for that?
eels - The Conservatives have an excellent record on the Environment. We passed the Climate Change Act. We are replanting forests. We implemented a carbon levy. And we can go further. We will take comprehensive efforts to restore Dartmoor’s peatland, a great natural carbon sink, that helps take Carbon Dioxide out of the atmosphere. Local Councils will have to publish detailed action plans as to how they can be zero carbon. I will push for the Government to meet the NFU target of having farming be carbon neutral by 2040. All new homes should be zero-carbon. 2020 will be the last year for new petrol burning buses and taxis, and 2030 will see the end of the sale of petrol vehicles under Conservative plans. The conservatives will also Require stores, restaurants, and petrol stations to display the carbon impact of their products, increasing consumer awareness of carbon emissions and hopefully reducing the carbon impact of what individuals buy.
Cornwall Live - Final question: What will you do if you lose the race in this constituency
eels - I will work to represent the people of Devon and Cornwall in any way I can.
eels then continues to take questions from locals

2020.02.10 14:02 eelsemaj99 #GEXIII [Cornwall and Devon] - Sir eelsemaj99 opens his campaign in Honiton

Sir eelsemaj99 opens his campaign in Honiton

Good morning everyone, it’s a pleasure to see everyone here. I am eelsemaj99, and am entitled to sit in the Lords as Earl of Devon. But I have decided not to take up my peerage, and instead to stand here to seek to be your MP, in the county that I have for many years called home, and in its wonderful neighbour Cornwall. You may know me best as a politician from Northern Ireland, and while this is true, I was raised in Devon, my Grandfather was brought up in Woolacombe and my mum was born in Exeter, in the same ward I was. My point is that I know this area intimately and want nothing more than the opportunity to serve your interests in Parliament.
Being raised in a small village near Exeter, I know the struggles of the often forgotten rural folk in these counties. Before I was told that I would stand in Cambridgeshire in GE9, I said that my wish was for places like Ilsington to be heard as loudly as Islington. I know well the people whose only interaction with a union is with the NFU, and I won’t speak to any imagined avalon of a celtic paradise down here. I feel that I am qualified to be your MP, and my task over these few days is to convince you that I am indeed the right person to elect.
As such, I have thought up a 5 point plan as to how I am to help you should you elect me as your MP, points that aren’t taken out of a nationally produced book of platitudes but taken from my own observations. I have produced a flyer explaining what I want to do for this community, but if you care to hear me elaborate, stay and listen
1 - Invest in our infrastructure
While everyone is fussing about HS2 or HSUK, we are stuck here without any thought. The line from Penzance to Paddington is the only mainline between Cornwall and the South East. The trains from Exeter to Waterloo are slow and cumbersome. Prices are high and the trains are old. The South West needs some attention too, not just the north. My first piece of legislation was a law protecting the sea wall at Dawlish, a vital pressure point along the line. But that isn’t all we should be doing. The vast majority of delays caused along the track are due to floods in Somerset or to suicides. Through better infrastructure, and better support mechanisms, we can tackle both of these issues. We need better, newer rolling stock, but stock that is built to withstand water so that the trains run smoothly between Dawlish Warren and Teignbouth at all times of year.
Exeter Airport is the only major airport in this constituency, and it isn’t being used to its full potential. It is not acceptable that for most destinations, the most convenient flights are from Bristol or London, and with Flybe in trouble as it is, without help we may lose our only hub. I will lobby the Government to invest in regional airports such as Exeter, and give vital support to our communities
Regional buses are quite frankly a joke. They are hilariously overpriced, underused and there are unjustifiably few of them. I will take it as my duty if elected to lobby Stagecoach, Government and Local Government to do a comprehensive review of bus services in rural areas, and to support these vital public services linking communities together.
2 - Make the best of Brexit
I know that you voted to stay in the Single Market and I understand why, but as a country we are leaving the EU and the Single Market, and we ought to make the best of it. And there will be benefits. Leaving the CFP gives our fishermen in Brixham and Exmouth and in the sundry villages that rely on the fishing trade to survive, it gives them the freedom to adapt to more favourable terms, to not have to throw away fish that the French would be able to keep, to allow their communities to thrive
Similarly, coming out of the Common Agricultural Policy allows us to make a British Agricultural Policy that favours British Farmers. We will listen to the NFU and to the various individual farmers that make up our farming sector. We can allow British wheat, flour and eggs to remain competitive. And we will deliver on the wishes of those that drive the sector: we will retain frictionless trade, allowing farmers to export their goods, we will introduce better regulations of antibiotics, to allow our livestock to be healthy without also developing antibiotic resistance, we will pay keen attention to the water table.
We won’t allow Brexit to hurt the tourist trade that contributes so much to the local economy. The vast majority of visitors to Cornish beaches, to the rolling hills of Dartmoor and Exmoor, to the scenic campsites across Cornwall and Devon are British, but we shouldn’t discount foreign tourism, especially through Brittany Ferries links from Plymouth to Roscoff and Santander. I will push for a Brexit deal that allows tourism in Britain to thrive.
3 - Protect our Communities
Local Government in England is a mess and it is a strong priority of mine to overhaul the system and implement something that works for all areas, not just for the denizen of some armchair, or just for London and large northern Cities. Local Government needs the flexibility to work in big cities and rural communities, and I will push for a new settlement for Local Government that works for Plymouth and Fowey as well as it works for London
Many traditional industries that serve as the lifeblood of local communities are in danger of being lost. The Fishing trade is in danger of being killed by a thousand regulations and swamped by summer tourism. The farming trade is in danger of falling foul of cheap produce from overseas. Specialty trades such as Dawlish Violets are already gone. I will push hard to promote local industry in the national forum if elected, to ensure that we don’t lose our reasons for living here. I will also fight for the protection of the current status of the cornish language for the few communities that use it
With an ageing population, we need to fix the social care crisis in rural areas. All too often people cannot afford the care they need so are forced to sell their homes to move into care homes, or have to make do with overworked and infrequently visiting carers to take care of them. I feel that in addition to further investment and social care funding reform, a lot of the issues relating to local care and loneliness can be alleviated through a better sense of local community: be it local clubs and community centres, better public transport links, more local shops or stopping ill thought out and ultimately damaging housing estates on the outskirts of villages, that distort the scale of the village and encourage commuters and retirees to move in en masse without building communities. I aim to take personal charge of a Communities Review if we return to Government, and write a large bill addressing and alleviating local government concerns
4 - Protect our climate
Between our stunning beaches, Rugged moorland, rolling farms and scenic seaside towns, our two counties have been blessed with a wonderful location. But we cannot afford to lose it. Nobody is denying the importance of climate change, not least me. We need to take firm action to combat climate change, and the Conservatives have pledged to do more than ever before to tackle it. In Government we would require all local authorities to produce a detailed action plan as to how we can meet the net-zero target for carbon emissions, and there is much we can do. I will lobby local authorities here to meet the NFU’s target of making farming carbon neutral by 2040. We will support the creation of more windfarms and seriously look into how to best implement tidal power in estuaries such as the Plym. We will make it so we can shut down or convert the plants in Langage, Yelland, Newton Abbot and Plymouth, so that this constituency does not rely on fossil fuels.
All new-build homes will be required to be designed for low or zero emissions, and be properly insulated for energy efficiency. So all the new developments you see popping up around the place will all at least be fine on the environment, if not great for the local environment, and we will Reduced LVT on zero-emission homes from 2027 onwards, giving an incentive for people to improve their homes.
We will protect and expand the peat bogs of Dartmoor and Exmoor, which act as excellent carbon sinks and a long term way of trapping carbon. Likewise, we will continue to reforest, refreshing areas like Haldon and Fernworthy and taking Carbon Dioxide out of the atmosphere.
5 - Protecting Vital Public Services
Rural problems need rural solutions. When so many people live down windy lanes in villages and towns far from Exeter or Plymouth or Truro, you cannot centralise public services to save money. When there is a rural crisis of social care, you cannot cut hospitals. Devon and Cornwall need its vital public services maintained: ideally we need a surgery in every village, minor injuries units near enough to everyone that remote patients won’t have to rely on Exeter or Torquay or Plymouth or Truro for their needs. My Grandfather is 94 and lives in Bovey Tracey. He used to have a local doctor in the village he could see about his health, and if needed he could stay overnight in the village surgery. Now he has to go to Exeter for most problems, my Grandmother drives him for half an hour to get the regular checkup. I am sure I am not alone in having a story like that to tell, and Bovey Tracey isn’t even that rural. We need to maintain our local health services
Likewise, I hope that some of our 10000 new policemen come to Cornwall and Devon. Crime is lower in rural areas but the police have been stretched. My village used to have a PCSO come over and look after the school and playing field. No longer. And with groups like the County Lines drug gangs taking advantage of the lack of rural policing, we need to remain vigilant, and police the local areas.
Local fire services also should be looked at. If there were to be a fire in some of the thatched villages in central Devon, who would come? Or in the clogged streets of Mevagissey, at peak tourist times? Emergency services shouldn’t all be housed in large urban centres, everywhere needs coverage
Anyway, thanks all, this turned out to be rather longer than expected but I hope you’ve got a clearer idea of why I’m standing here this election, and I hope you put your trust in me on Friday.

2020.01.20 02:33 The_Annoying_Polack Searching for advice on relocation - UK Devon or Cornwall/Poland/Czech Republic

Dear fellow MGTOWs, especially ones living in West England or in the Czech Republic, I seek your advice on potentially relocating away from London in the UK, where I currently live.
A little bit about my situation: - I'm in my mid 30's, No health problems. - Polish national, hence EU citizenship and on my way to holding UK citizenship as well (waiting for reply from the Foreign Office) - STEM degree and working as a Software Engineer for a very large corporation (very well paid + private pension, health insurance, etc.). - Live very frugally - the only thing I spend money every now and then are some motorcycle clothing or accessories. - No debt of any kind. - Significant savings in the bank. - Not in any intimate relationship... I'm kind of on the verge of going monk. - Hobbies include motorcycle touring, boxing and general fitness.
I feel stuck in rut. For the last 3 years I've been feeling like I'm a rat in a cage. My current job doesn't give me much satisfaction. The previous job I had didn't give me much satisfaction either. The money is too good to quit at the moment. I have no romantic relationships here (London UK) and I'm not going to bother to look for any. The females here are even too toxic for pumping and dumping (I've tried that). One of my only two friends is very blue pilled, got married last year and in a few months is moving away from London. The other friend has gone to Asia about 2 years ago and is currently living in Japan. I have some acquaintances but they're all too blue pilled for me to bear sober and I've decided to completely stop drinking this year. I'm sick and tired of wasting my time commuting to a job that doesn't give me fulfillment nor work over 50 hours per week and not have time for myself. I'm just sick and tired of all of that.
Over the past year and half I have devised the following plan: Shift my specialization to something in IT I can do remotely either as a full time job or better yet, a part time job (I'm a SQL database / data warehouse / CUBE specialist and general .NET programmer) Move somewhere small-ish and focus more time on my motorcycling (I would like to start buying and fixing up and riding old bikes and maybe selling them off?) and perhaps some gardening and prepping.
What I do NOT want is to be stuck with a mortgage for the next 20+ years, having to stay in the rat race I currently am in.
Here's where the relocation advice comes in. I've been to Devon in the UK. I've actually rode my bike there a few times. Lovely area nature wise (except Plymouth - it's really dire) and with my current savings, I could afford a modest property there (for example in Torquay) with no mortgage. I've explored Devon a little - been to Newton Abbot, Torquay, Plymouth and Exeter and I've liked pretty much all of them except Plymouth. There's not much going on in these towns but that suits me fine.
I'm from Poland originally so can always go back. I even co-own a property there with my siblings already so I wouldn't even need to rent if I returned. I received job offers in the last few months from Poland but I've turned all of them down as I would have been eaten alive by the tax man. With my savings I could buy a studio flat in the capital - Warsaw or a 2 bedroom flat somewhere in the surrounding suburbs.
I keep hearing very good things about the Czech Republic. They seem to have a thriving IT industry, they have amazing countryside to ride motorbikes through, great architecture and the living costs over there seem to be the same as in Poland but with a bit less taxation and less bureaucracy. I don't speak Czech but can learn it - it won't be that difficult for me.
Have any of you, who frequent this subreddit have any experience with Devon/Cornwall in the UK or the Czech Republic? Would you advise either and why?
Thank you kindly in advance for your replies.

2019.02.06 14:00 autotldr A driver has just crashed a car 'swerving to avoid octopus'

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 39%. (I'm a bot)
Devon and Cornwall Police say they have arrested a man this evening on suspicion of drug driving - after he crashed his car 'swerving to avoid an octopus'.
"The incident happened on the A381 in the South Hams earlier this evening. Shortly before 7pm, Kingsbridge police took to Facebook and said:"Emergency services are currently dealing with a single vehicle RTC on the A381 by the South Milton turn where a car has overturned.
A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police confirmed that a man in 40s was now in custody at Torquay Police Station, and had been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs.

2018.08.21 12:14 oatandham Anne Simpson - missing since 2004 - was this really a voluntary disappearance?

Anne Simpson was 60 when she went missing on the 26th September 2004. Anne had previously lived on the Saffron Lane estate of Leicester which is known due to being the city's first large-scale interwar housing scheme. Anne had recently moved to the seaside area Skegness, living in Coastfields Caravan Park where she lived with her long term partner, Anthony Rogers (known locally as Tom Rodgers) .
The day of Anne’s disappearance had been a happy one, she had been visited by one of her four daughters and her grandchildren and had spent the day around the Skegness area. Anne was a devoted mother and close to her children so days like these were the sort she really cherished.
When the time came for Anne’s daughter and grandchildren to leave Anne waved them off as they made their journey back to Leicester. Anne’s daughter noted that her mother looked happy and healthy when she left the caravan park. Anne was then headed by foot for a drink by herself at her local pub, The Bell Inn.
Anne’s long term partner heard Anne return to the caravan they shared at 8.30pm but no interaction between the two is noted or reported. He stated that she went into her room as the couple had separate bedrooms in the caravan. He remembered hearing the caravan door open and what is presumed to have been Anne leaving the caravan at around 11pm the same night.
The next morning when Anthony got up he found no sign of Anne. She had left behind personal possessions one would expect her to take if leaving home such as her handbag, purse and other possessions. Nothing was reported missing with her. Anthony reported Anne missing that day.
There was very little movement on the case until 2011, shortly after two of Anne’s daughters made a seven year anniversary appeal for news on their missing mother. Following the appeal an anonymous call was made from a phone box in Wigston, Leicestershire. The male caller offered the police some information which opened some new lines of enquiry.
After the anonymous call police conducted thorough land and underwater searches at Lakeside Caravan Park in Sutton on Sea. The underwater search of the lake was being conducted by hand to ensure the most thorough of searches which meant progress of the search was slow. During the period of this searches a 62 year old man was arrested in Devon and was questioned before being released on bail. Police insisted however that murder was only one line of enquiry. The search of land wasn’t fruitful with nothing linking to Anne’s disappearance being found. The 62 year old was later cleared.
2012 was the last time police publicly commented on the case. PC Storey added there could be a number of reasons for Ms Simpson to have gone missing.
"One could be that Anne has voluntarily gone missing, although from the inquiries we've done that's probably unlikely," he said. "Another one is that Anne has possibly taken her own life or she could be lying undiscovered somewhere after a fatal accident. At this moment in time we cannot establish a connection between Anne and the caravan site."
Jo Hill, one of Ms Simpson's daughters, said: "It's been awful. Every day you imagine what's happened to her and how it's happened. We can't put an end to it until we get her back with us at home or something, anything, any answer."
**What was the relationship like between Anne and her partner at the time. He didn’t attend the family day out, not the pub visit and he reported no contact between them from when she supposedly arrived home and left again?**
**Anne was in good spirits and had no history of mental illness, what makes the Police believe she may have taken her own life?**
**If the timeline is accurate, why did Anne leave the home at 11pm?**

2017.07.02 15:07 Locke_John Places in the UK worth staying?

Hey guys, I'm from the UK myself and have solo travelled around Europe a couple of times before. I want to get away next week for about a week and would like some suggestions, as honestly I'm not a big fan of my own country!
I don't like London so that's off the cards, I live in Liverpool, and I've already been to places like Devon, Torquay, Belfast, Rhyl, Llandudno, Llangollen, Manchester, etc.
Has anyone been to Birmingham or Newcastle? How are they for solo travel? Any other suggestions?
I prefer cities generally and would like somewhere that will have busy hostels to meet new people, have a drink, etc, but am also open to a couple of days in a quieter area just to chill out.

I've just started a business and moved house, and I've just spoken to a client tonight who had gone out of business, which means I won't be seeing any money from them. I also work full-time, and all my money pretty much goes towards my business + living.
It's left me a little bit short for the next couple of weeks so would really appreciate the help. All my details are online for my business and my full time job.
