@EvoRulz now that there used to be a bannable offense, you shit-maggot. I hope it still is.
Edit: and now he edited his post out like a little weakling coward.
Tags were Gargron's idea of switching from forum boards when we got to new site back in the early years of this fucking site. And damn, that idea sucked ass...
Now, I obviously use tags system, having my own tag, which you all should worship, ang actively tagging my threads, in vane hopes that some fucker will search content using it. Which is absolutely vane, because we actually don't have tags search of this fucking site. Yes, got tags, don't have tags search. You can check this out yourself and search... "4th_tag" for example. It has threads, but search returns nothing.
So, tags essentially are only useful when you are ready to go to the tag page and dig through them yourself, which is a crappy way to search for anything. Meaning, in current implementation, they only work to give you quick recap of what thread is about when you already found the thread.
Personally, I preferred when we had boards. Projects, anime, games and other stuff was sorted out to general categories, and random useless shite, which CL users pump out every day, like forum games, were moved to 'spam' board, and we had option to not see that one, which I gladly used.
So there you go. Tags should either be fixed to work like tags, or they should be removed in favor of some actual working system.
Also, really, don't put yes/no voting on something like this. Ask people to write fucking opinions. Just so you know - I didn't vote yes or no anyways.
Well, I haven't updated this in a while. But things do happen, so here we go again.
While I wasn't writing here, dollar went up... well, actually, hrivna went down... and rates went to 26.6 hrivnas for a dollar. Now, however, it went down a bit, to 25.8. Why? Well, incredibly, west gives us stuff again.
Most notably, IMF had a meeting and decided to give us... I think 1 billion dollars. Obviously, on the meeting everyone except Russian representative voted in favor of that. Don't know what deal have been made, but that is a fact - we are getting more money. Well, not much more. I billion will be lost in a heartbeat.
In fact, after hearing the news about it, Poroshenko already made announcement about increasing defense ministry budget. Even though before he allocated sum that was almost 2 times smaller than currently announced. Reason is simple, of course - our war is a very easy place to 'allocate' money to. It's very easy to just steam from that and then claim that something was done but all records/achievements/equipment was totally lost in war.
Still, this act gives us some notion of stability, I guess? That's why hrivna went up a little bit. Not for long, though. And this billion won't help anyone here, anyways.
By the way, this is not the only thing we got from the west. US congress voted on giving us lethal weapons - something local government have been asking for more than a year. So, I guess, now we will get shipments of US weapons. Which will be sent to the east. And from there it will be sold to ISIS, as part of our weaponry is now. This is weapons circulation in nature as it is, and, honestly, I can't help but be skeptical about this whole thing.
Something random and funny about our army. One medical service colonel now claims that there is a biological warfare going against Ukrainian troops. Listen to this: soldiers in the east, looking for entertainment, fuck cheap whores using bad condoms or no condoms at all... and get AIDS. And that is clearly a biological attack - whores totally do it on purpose, to demolish Ukraine military power. I am seriously using his words now. Funniest thing is, these guys, who got AIDS, are being treated like they were wounded on the battlefield. The literally get certificates claiming they got hurt in the line of duty... imagine "got AIDS in line of military duty" on your medical card.
Something more major. While far west gives us stuff, nearby western neighbors refuse us stuff. For example, Poland is stopping gas transfers to us, claiming they got some accident with the pipelines. I don't really believe it, I do think Poland, like every other country we asked gas from, realized that this is a very useless endeavor and just making a nice face while cutting us off.
Which, once again, brings up the winter question, and I can tell you that even in my southern city it's getting quite cold at nights. So, possibility of a lot of people dying out during winter is constantly high.
What else. Clinton met with our Poroshenko. Trump refused to meet with Poroshenko. Is you are American and reading this - please vote for Trump. Thank you very much. This was my 5 seconds of political campaigning, now back to the main show.
While all this was going, on 9th of September we all declared another cease-fire at the east. As you can imagine, it didn't last more than few hours, so there's nothing new. There was also attempt to move both armies back 2 kilometer from each other on the whole front-line, but that also failed. This war keeps floating in the state of constant non-solution, while remaining in semi-active 'we will just shell you with artillery' phase.
There is possibility that, with US-provided lethal weapons, Ukraine army will try another big attack, but that is yet to come.
Another retarded stuff. Poroshenko actually claimed that 'as per his US sources', in 2014 50% of Ukrainian army consisted of KGB agents. Yes, this is his actual words. And yes, I don't think these idiots understand that there's no KGB anymore, there's goddamn FSB, and it's apparently totally pointless to explain it to them.
One more thing, and this one I really liked. Remember me talking about Kherson region? It's right next to Crimea, all Tatars are now hanging out there, and that's where we got ISIS training camps.
Well, suddenly people got annoyed by that. And not just normal people - members of the region government. What happened is, head of region government (who is current government supporter) claims that after some local government session there was a coup. He was removed from power and pretty much kicked out, and Kherson region government os now mostly rebelling against Poroshenko.
Now, I am unsure how this all is going now. I think, for now there were people sent from Kiev to negotiate the situation. But is it is really a rebellion, I can only wish them luck. And I will write more as I get more information about that region. Still, they are just one region away from my own, and if they can do it with some success, it can give other regional governments some idea about what should be done.
One can only hope, really...
Well, that's all major news I had, so let's end this with a funny video. One member of parliament tried to put a bag of dried breads (this is allusion to prison food) on the desk of other member of the parliament from the opposing party. Usual fighting ensued.
May you people learn to read post dates and notice this is long dead?
@supergal_gene how about providing link and some actual descriptions instead of blurping out 1 phrase like that's already a big effort for you?
Free State of Jones (2016)
This movie tells a very interesting story - about an armed rebellion against the confederacy in the state of Louisiana, which is considered by many to be one of the most pro-confederacy states even. Led by a man named Newton Knight, played in this movie by Matthew McConaughey.
So, this is really interesting. First of all, I never knew this was a thing, but apparently, part of Louisiana did rebel hard during civil war, and they never were really suppressed - war ended. And thankfully, there is something to read about there, so I can relate you to the usual site that picks at specific facts and also to a related article about preparations for the movie.
It seems, only parts of what shown was true, and as you can imagine, a lot of untrue parts were made up for dramatics by Hollywood. Nephew Daniel is fictional and clearly made for us to feel bad. Moses is fictional and made up as representation of local Negroes. Asshole tax collector is fictional and is clear representation of many asshole tax collectors of the time who, I imagine, were just as bad. Military commander of the region is based on the real person, and the attack at the church actually happened, but the guy was shot at different event and not strangled there.
Historical facts are there too. Anger at '20 Negroes law', hiding out in swamps, taking over the county and getting a shitty end of the stick after it was all said and done, cause - surprise-surprise - slavery and nigger-hating didn't quite end there. Nope, rich fucks were reinstated, KKK started riding out... good times.
Trial of Davis Knight is actually true, and that is what cracks me up about this all - family matters. Because it is true - Newton married to white woman, had 9 children with her, went to have a common marriage with black woman, had 5 kids with her, and then, after she died, entered common marriage with her daughter from other white man and had 2 more kids with that one. Which is what they don't show in movie - you see his having only 2 kids there. So, those who call that guy white trash actually do have a point. At the same time, he was a military leader that got the whole rebellion going quite successfully, so it can be assumed that he was just as grand as he is portrayed in the movie. It's just that Hollywood made the image more romantic by taking away the more questionable parts, just as they do.
All in all? A lot of made up stuff, but this movie does tell about a very interesting events which aren't widely known, I guess. So there's obvious merit in watching it and then going to check on more facts.
So, this one is a mix of a few animes. I think, somewhere around ten. Song is "Heathens" by Twenty One Pilots - Heathens. Theme is pretty much a city full of fucked up criminals. This amv feels pretty damn atmospheric.
And this one... is also a mix... of about 10+ anime, song is - "You Lovely You" by Young Wolf Hatchlings. And this is extremely lewd video. I can't refuse the fact, however, that it has some very smart editing, and there's a lot of thought put into is. So enjoy, you perverts.
Officials with the Valley Forge Military Academy and College say a student who lives in an Eastern University apartment building located on the academy's property heard what she thought were shots fired Monday evening, and called 911.
Okay.... that is okay, but...
OThey found no weapons or evidence of any weapons being fired, and no one was injured.
The lockdown was lifted about an hour and a half later.
Officials say it's believed the sound the student heard was bubble wrap being popped.
Okay, what? What kind of military academy this is if people there can't hear the difference between bubble wrap pop and a fucking gunshot? It's either a clever coverup, or they really teach complete morons there.
@Lieutenant, you too, dear.
Okay, now let's allow some of them humans to post something here too.
Changed thread name, yep.
