  1. Just saw the Joker. 

    Holy fuck. It was a good movie.

    Stolen from a friend who showed me this~

  3. Seems like Assad and Putin are far better and more reliable allies than the US 

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-50036901

    I do hope this new alliance can be utilized to its full effect and that Russia actually commits fully to it to push Turkey completely out of Syria. Will it likely happen? No. That is what the Kurds are hoping, hoping that they will be able to take Afrin city back as well, but in all likelyhood, what Russia and the SAA will probably only be able to do is stabilizing the frontlines with the Turks. Most everything relies on Russia and how much commitment they are willing to make and they have already committed far too much to the conflict as it stands. The SAA and the Kurds stand at a disadvantage against a technologically superior foe. Another weakness is that this is an uneasy alliance and the Kurds have had to make some concessions to the pro-Assad forces, but as they say, better that than to stand alone against the Ottoman Turks. 

    But best of lucks to them anyways. Drive out the Turks! Drive out the Sultan! Long live Sooryia!

  4. Ah, Blizzard. That soulless corporation that sides with human rights violaters and takes a direct stance in politics. Can't say I am surprised. Gotta get that Chinese dough. Hope you are enjoying Classic~

      I've frankly hated Blizzard for a long time now, and stuff like this is exactly why. I still hate EA and especially 2K more.

  5. I don't have time for your old person shenanigans. I got a revolution to fight~

  6. Saudi-Arabia: We are rich, supplied by the US and posess a modern army. We can bomb the shit out of our neighbors if we want.

      Nazi comparisons are usually cringe but it for real looks like he rehearsed that shit. 

  8. Question for Steven Universe fans. Is it possible to watch the movie without watching the show? 

    1. Frostgage

      Strangely enough someone asked this exact question a couple days ago so imma copy/paste my answer because that's just the way I am

      SU is very character-driven and the movie focuses heavily on their history/development. But, the music is absolutely incredible and I imagine it would still be very enjoyable to watch even if you didn't understand much beyond the plot.

      I also don't know what "/s" is. I'm afraid my satirical humor and internet knowledge is much more limited than compared to @Twiggy's. 

      I'm a bit of a boomer despite being a millenial~

      @JonasDarkmane I was assuming you were being sarcastic.

      My original post is sarcasm yes. Otherwise I am nearly unable to read sarcasm in other peoples words :)

  9. Bernie Sanders: We need population control to fight climate change

    Far-right: Probably advocating for white people only

    Bernie: We need to give poor countries access to birth control 

    Far-right: Oh, well, won't argue against that...

    Sane people: That actually makes sense due to the insane population explosion happening in poor countries

    Some crazy conservatives: YoU hAtE bRoWn PeOpLe!

      In their case, it's very much justified.

      Oh lawd. I’ll give this a play through once I’m done no lifing Classic. The changeling reich shall conquer all. 

  14. Ah Disney, the soulless company that just refuses to die. I think it is safe to say that skipping out on Rise of Skywalker will not be a loss.

    Translation to plain English: "We will not be going anywhere, our invasion on the independent sovereign nation of Syria will continue". 

    Always lovely to see what NATO members are willing to put up with, glad that we are a part of a warmongering organization.

      @Jeric

      Important question from a man who lived in Belgium. 

      What kind of chocolate? :twi:

       

    3. Beetlejeric

      Beetlejeric

      My international chocolate sampling is limited but I adored something made by Freia (spelling unsure). Not sure where it was from. But yeah I’ll go with that one.

      Freyja? The Icelandic chocolate?:grin:

  16. Been watching the Big Lez Show as well as the Mike Nolan Show. Pretty skits, definitely recommend it~

      Their party, their rules. It’s why you create a “ranked-choice” voting system that way independents won’t split votes with similar candidates and the political parties might reconsider running fairer contests.

    2. Beetlejeric

      Beetlejeric

      Definitely support that rather than FPtP that exists in most of our systems now. 

    3. Spider Demon

      Spider Demon

      @Jeric That actually sounds more democratic than how Democrats run their party.

       

      This isn't the first time it's happened either. It happened to Bernie in 2016 (Not-So-Super-Delegates lost him the nomination), and I bet there are LOTS of examples before that as well. I'm sick and tired of a system where only two parties run the show and they're both absurdly corrupt and out of touch with real people.

  18. Happy birthday, I hope you have a pleasant one :grin:

  19. Today, an absolute madlad was buried having died at the age of 93. 

    Baldvin Tryggvason, a man of great repute here in Iceland, passed away on July 29th. 

    This guy has gone through hell of a lot. Born in Ólafsfjörður in North Center of Iceland in 1926 to poor parents who loved him greatly. He was a man of ambition who was a quick learner and determined to see his goals through. His mother wanted him to live a simple life of fisheries and get married, but he instead got enrolled for school and he was among the first in the North to do so being from a poor family. 

    This is where his first signs of him being a tough guy started showing. When he was a young adult, he got sick. He got pneumonia which was dangerous back then here in Iceland and he also got Tuberculosis which was an automatic death sentence here. He was sure he would die, but he managed to pull through and survive. With renewed vigour, he continued his studies, graduated and then married Júlía Sveinbjarnardóttir and had two kids with her later on. 

    In 1949, Iceland was set to sign the papers that would confirm the country as being a member of NATO. The communists of the country were not pleased with this and tried to block MPs from being able to get to parliament. Supporters of NATO would oppose them and the police had no control over the situation. This was often refered to as Bardaginn við Austurvöll or the Battle of Austurvöllur where NATO supporters and opposers of NATO fought each other with sticks, rocks, bottles and fists. Baldvin fought the communists and he received a glass bottle to the head. He would still fight on only feeling the pain much later as his forehead was bleeding profusely and his buddies pointed this out to him. 

    Baldvin would take part in politics, being one of the founding members of the Young Independence (Party) supporters and he would also help out with city counceling. He also had love for theater and so he worked with many writers and helped with many plays. 

    Baldvin's first wife would pass away in 1984 and he managed to cope with it because a friend managed to convince him to seek out a professional to talk with and ever since that experience, he always recommended people to seek help when they really needed it. 

    Baldvin would later remarry and that is how he would end up coming into my life as he married my grandmother who would renew his vigour as he partook in the Energy business of Iceland. 

    Having gone through many things, having seen many things and having been to many places, Baldvin's life was one hell of an adventure and he was one hell of a tough guy and a true madlad. It was pleasure having known him and I wish him the best with whatever afterlife he may be in.

  20. Not everyday that you get to shake the hand of the president of Iceland
