@Glossy As I understand it, you are saying that the troop build-up is a response to Washington's "shouting", but isn't it the other way round? Isn't everybody talking of the possibility of a Russian invasion because of the build-up?
I'd like to see a question about when sanctions against Russia will be lifted. Since there is a bunch of them, maybe starting with one about the sanctions against its central bank.
@Joker This question is about the period until 2024, i.e. one year and ten months, so if soldiers continue to die at such a rate, this would resolve positively, right? That, however, seems unlikely to me. At least, adding 200 or 300k (or more, idk) wounded soldiers to 100k deaths, the numbers would exceed the size of the regular Ukrainian armed forces, so it would be hard to sustain the fighting for so long.

@probahilliby The article states that the man had received years-long training for this mission, so the mission must have been planned a long time ago and probably with the situation in Georgia in mind as is suggested in the article. Maybe there is some information in the fact that they sent him now, but again that might also be related to the recent indictments in the Georgia case.
[Edit: I'm somewhat surprised that Russia cares so much about the ICC.]

Former ICC investigator Carla Del Ponte calls Putin a war criminal and demands a arrest warrant. Unfortunately, the interview is paywalled. She also is reported to have said that finding proofs would be difficult.
I wonder what cases you have in mind involving Myanmar and Israel.
If I may answer instead of @helpermonkey, I believe these would be the situations in Bangladesh, which "encompasses the 2016 and 2017 waves of violence which allegedly took place in Rakhine State, on the territory of Myanmar" and in Palestine. There is an overview about all situations the ICC investigates here.
How would ICC move faster against an invader while the war is raging?
That is an excellent question! But I believe the ICC often has investigated under difficult conditions, which is why I think the base rates are important. Also, I assume that this conflict will be much better covered by well-funded intelligence communities of countries with some interest in an indictment. The US already stated that they might provide evidence to international courts.
I have no idea how to formalize this, but: When will OpenAI consider ChatGPT fully aligned/unable to produce violent content?
@rappatoni Excellent comments, I am, however, only at 32% because the city council seems to be making plans for the coming winter. There seems no indication yet that they want to extend the operation until the winter 23/24 and they might as well stop it in spring. Also, I think it will always be very much possible for a federal government to ignore the demands of local politicians even if they are of the same party, particularly should the results of the stress test contradict SWM's analysis.
It is permissible if the marriages can only take place in some parts of Poland but not other parts.
Could that even happen? I would have assumed that marriage is regulated by national law.
@jowo @EvanHarper @pantaleonfassbender Maybe the information in the question should be updated? - Don't know whom to ping in that case?
@ForkLeaf An independent Catalonia would not automatically be part of the EU, so that should not count, I think.
@Nausica I've been thinking that adding the condition that the statement should not be retracted within 1 month (or X months) might be a good idea. That could also cover the sarcasm issue.
