Found this little gem yesterday. Anime is Nichijou, and that one is always a great source of material. Music is 'It's A Hard-Knock Life' from Annie OST. With lyrics about poor beaten kids and strong rhythm, this is perfect for the anime about daily life of ordinary girls where amount of ass-kicking breaks all allowed norms.
So, first of all...
Second of all, credit where it's due - I never had any unreasonable shit from Jack, and he was fine admin. Pulling out when you feel you should is reasonable thing to do here. Good luck with whatever you gonna do now.
On the matter of site... fucking shit, just let the goddamn thing die. I been waiting for its death for years now, and we are as close as we can be. Plus, let's be honest, this site isn't even worth the price being paid for server upkeep. I mean, really, what we got here is about 10 retards on chat, active community of spam-bots, and DC, for whom it's obviously a last place where the fucker can have at least some illusion of self-worth. And as for me - Jack said it right, there's no activity to warrant moderation, so there's no moderation for me to warrant any fucking with the system. Meaning, site lost its usefulness. I really just stay here cause I promised to be here when this place finally goes down, and I am a man of my word.
So yeah, pull the plug already. Those of you fuckers who want to keep contact already have each other skype and discord contacts for ages now.
Well, site is up - sadly - so let's do a documentary thread, since I just watched another one few days ago.
This is very clearly a highly critical look at how animals are raised now before they become meat that we eat. Basically, about 'factory' method and about how horrible it is and how much it affects the environment.
As you can clearly guess, this is very one-sided view, but it's still interesting. Factory method makes money and supplies based on ever growing demand, so it's obviously a very powerful system that's in control of the meat now. And that system is show in all its ugliness, including mutated animals and cruel experiments and pollution. On the other hand we are being shown farmers who still struggle to do things the old way. I actually was impressed with the guy who raises turkeys, as his motivation is literally that if he would stop raising these birds for people to eat, these birds, as they are in nature, would completely die out. It's a nice paradox. Along the way there's also some opinions on how people should re-think their food, and how plant-based 'meat' is a thing.
Movie, as I said, is very opinionated. That's its whole point - to show how things are bad right now. And it's being narrated by Natalie Portman who sounds super sad and judgemental, which was honestly a big turn off for me. However, they do show the current system, and how it works and what effect it has, and that is very educational from environmental point of view, and also from just knowing what you eat and how it may be created.
Some might lose taste for meat after this movie. I obviously did not, but fair warning to those of you who are too impressionable.
So, small update now that initial dust has settled down somewhat. I will try to be informative about the issue.
The details of the incident actually have historical roots now, so let's start with that.
After events of the past years, Crimea belongs to Russia. It's connected to Russia through Kerch strait, and after getting the region, Russia has been making a bridge over it, to have direct connection. But, as you can see from the map, through Kerch strait you get into Azov sea, which is still pretty much Ukrainian territory with ports and everything. Meaning, Ukrainian ships just have to go through the territory with Russian bridge.
As you can imagine, this is very heated place by it self, due to these reasons. Russians take the bridge very seriously, especially with threats of some Ukrainians (including politicians) to bomb the bridge. Plus, I think there were incidents with some Ukrainian fishermen trying to ram the bridge, but I am unsure about details. Let's just say, Russia keeps a close eye on the area, and not without reason.
Now, the recent incident had 3 Ukrainian ships intercepted and taken into custody. These 3 ships went from Odessa (that's where I live) to Mariupol (on a map), and the only way to go was through the Kerch strait. There is nothing unusual in that movement itself.
Ukraine claims, that ships were just going along their normal course, when Russia demanded they leave, and then attacked, without any provocation.
Russia claims that ships were going into Russia territory waters, and did not respond or change course after a warning. Also, Russia claims that 2 members of Ukrainian Security Service were on board, and ship logs contained direct mention of plan to break through Russian border.
Radio communications pieced together over these last days show that Russian side warned Ukrainian ships that the area they plan to move through is currently temporarily closed. We don't really know why the area was closed, though.
To be honest, it's all a bit controversial, and noone looks clean here. But what happened happened, and 3 ships are now taken by Russia, along with the crew.
This allowed the president to enable martial law. However, of course, as everything in the country, it's pretty retarded. Let me show you the map of the martial law areas.
Red ones are the one with martial law enabled. Crimea isn't red, cause, really, it's not even Ukraine anymore, they have no power to declare it there. Donetsk and Lugansk territories are under martial law, as they are partly still controlled by Ukraine. And, as you can see, basically eastern ridge of regions is martial law zone, including my region. This, absolutely coincidentally of course, is very similar to the regions that generally don't support the current course of the government.
That's not the only thing, though. Martial law is declared in case of invasion, for example. And I take this as an example, because that's what Ukrainian government is saying - Russia is ready for war and will attack soon. Like, tomorrow or smth. However, in case of martial law during invasion, general practice is to have it until victory or defeat. Again, until you beaten your opponent in a war or lost a war. But since there is no actual war with Russia (and if there was, it would be over in about 5 days), Poroshenko declared martial law to last 1 month.
That is the notion that went into parliament - martial law for 1 month over specific regions. As selective as it is, there's another aspect to think about - Ukraine will have its next presidential elections in march next year. And another - after martial law is in effect, president, as commander-in-chief, can extend it. Considering that everyone yells about Russian aggression, there would be no trouble to find a reason for extension and keep 'unloyal' regions in check under martial law.
By the way, it is really feels like the only way for Poroshenko to extend his presidency. From relatively high support in 2014 he now has less that 10% public support. Though, he isn't the only one - out of all the candidates we got now, not a single one is having over 10% support, which is a political disaster in its own right.
In any case, along with martial law, Ukraine also restricted Russian citizens from entering Ukraine. Not to all, but to males from 16 to 60. I think, there are some stipulations to that, but generally, that's the restriction we got in effect. As means of retaliation, Russian apparently plans to... simplify traveling across border for Ukrainian citizens and also process of getting Russian citizenship. Which is a funny move, really - while Ukraine fears that other side will send soldiers, Russia welcomes people who want to fuck off from all this.
That's where we stand right now. Currently I am waiting to see if there will be more armed incidents between the countries, and whether martial law really would be extended beyond original schedule and/or regions. Will be interesting new year, that's for sure...
Fuck yeah, you motherless fucks, we are back in business again!
Alright, actual news. 3 Ukrainian ships (2 artillery boats and 1 support boat or smth.) were found crossing sea borders of Russia, here in the Black Sea. Next to Crimea, of course, cause every local shittery has to be around Crimea. Now, I have no fucking idea why the fuck they went there. It is said, they did not respond to radio hailing. So, what did Russia do? The thing you do when someone quietly crosses your border - they opened fire.
Currently Ukrainian ships are captured and crew is provided with medical help, as some apparently were wounded when shots were fired. I think they surrendered without much of a fight. As far as I know, there's UN meeting about all this buggery, though I have no idea if it had any results.
Now, why is this important?
First of all, this is a direct military confrontation between Ukraine and Russia. I mean, sure, the was in the east of the country is going for fourth year now, but that was is not against Russia, it's against regions that separated from the country. But this one is direct - Russia, Ukraine, shots fired.
Second of all, if I am reading this right, Ukrainian military ships went and crossed Russian border, and were shot at in retaliation. Technically, Russia can take fucking offense and finally war the fuck out of the country I live in. And right now we have no idea if there actually will be a proper war, but Kiev is already full with talk of martial law being put into effect.
By the way, this can also just be a ruse by president Poroshenko - it's time to elect him out of the office, so the cocksucker might have decided to use this to implement martial law and stay in power. Seriously, good thing I am not in Kiev.
And with all the talks of the martial law, hrivna already dropped today. Not by much, but it was very noticeable. Lucky me for keeping my money in USD instead of local currency, and for getting my salary in USD rates. But yeah, panic on all social levels will hit hrivna, worsening already bad financial situation. And all that in a middle of unexpectedly cold season. I keep repeating that, but the general population of the country is getting more and more fucked.
So hey, time to keep an eye on the fucking news again!
Not your amigo either. I do believe you idiots think that trying to act pretentiously friendly supposed to have some effect, because I see same dumb shit all over the net, but trust me, it isn't working.
@DictatorHilton not your buddy or friend, and I don't post on facebook, which should be obvious even to you, but hey, you just go and keep being retard. And hey, nice to see you identify at least one commercial gimmick. Who knows maybe you will realize few more, which you buy into, at some point.
Well, that's some for real weird shit. Can you imagine, black motherfucker becoming a legitimate (in a way) member of a KKK, with license and all? So yeah, apparently, that happened.
So, thankfully, my usual place has some nice info on what's true here and what's not. Apparently, the core is very much true - first ever black police officer decided to try for a KKK ad in a newspaper and just happened to establish contact with the organization. Motherfucker even used his real name, because he was sure nothing proper would happen. But it did, so for face to face meeting he had to send other cop, who's real identity is still unknown. Together they were the member of KKK, with a license, for 9 months, and even were almost made a leader of the local KKK chapter. Which, honestly, is hilarious on many levels.
Now, that, and some minor details represented in the movie, is true. However, most of the movie is actually full of dramatizations for the screen. There was no bomb plot, there was no storyline with that black power girl, we don't even know of the white guy was Jewish or not, cause, as I said, his identity remains secret. And the whole movie is structured to be very... how to say it... racial? It shows the clash of black and whites in US at the time, in a very focused way.
There are obvious reasons why it was done - race is a hot topic even today, apparently, for US, and without all those storylines the movie, while representing interesting factual event, actually would have been quite boring. Just some undercover police work, yep. Still, the event is based on is pretty damn funny.
This one is for good old Ouran Host Club. And the song is 'The Other Side' from The Greatest Showman. Our main hero looking for a final hire in his crazy show. Surprisingly, this is a pretty good fit and a lot of fun to watch as you make parallels between the song lyrics and the characters.
Second one is for Seven Deadly Sins anime, with the song 'White Flag' by Daughtry. This one, inspired by the anime second season, is more serious, showing off both the show's action and some of the darker moments.
DmC 3 of course. And that was just the intro for that motherfucking game. Rest was even more over the top.
Before everything got ruined by fucking WoW, Warcraft 3 had some great fucking orks. Plus, Blizzard always were making awesome cinematics.
And then there's Halo. I love first three games of the series equally, but the 2nd one really gets you into epic mood right from the start.
