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.www.youtube.com/watch?v=zj1Bp2XbkHU
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.
I actually thought about posting this cake, googled exactly this one, but I didn't know if you would enjoy snake-shaped cake. After all, snakes aren't for eating. Humans are for eating.
Today is a glorious day of @Lieutenant's birthday. She is the last decent person left on this pathetic site, and her b-day is on 13th, which is additionally cool, so you are obliged to celebrate it. Go send her gifts immediately.
But really, Lie, I congratulate you... well, you know I already congratulated you and sent you small humble gift, but yeah, happy birthday. I remember that you dislike cakes, so there, have a snake in b-day hat instead.
I wish you happiness and death to all the people you dislike. Which is also happiness, yes. Enjoy you birthday and don't let anyone get to you, not today, not ever.
And there, have a cake anyways!
Yes, next one so soon. This one is about 30-ies, about editor Maxwell Evarts Perkins and writer
Thomas Wolfe and their work together. Now, Maxwell, apparently, was responsible for discovering Hemingway and Scott Fitzgerald. And then this Wolfe guy came along, and he wrote a metric fuckton of pages. And Maxwell's job was to make the book presentable to the public. Which meant to cut a lot of stuff.
So, praised be the internet, this one actually got an article on my usual site which I urge you to read right away. What can be said about it? Again, story is made slightly more dramatic. Maxwell wasn't taken by the work immediately, Aline's suicide attempt was much less dramatic, there was some additional monetary settlement, which contributed to the separation of the writer and the publishing agency. However, a lot of key elements were done right - Wolfe had older obsessive lover, Maxwell really got into work, books were fucking huge (I mean sheer volume right now)...
Are characters represented right? I mean, it is what movie essentially concentrates on. Hell if I know, really. But, considering it's the world of writers - huge boisterous people with large personalities... I'd say, it is believable. And to add to that, that Wolfe died cause of brain tuberculosis, which probably contributed t his writing and behavior quite a bit... So yeah, I'd go with believable, though, obviously made to fit the dramatizations of the screenplay.
So, imagine if you board the plane to Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, and instead find yourself in Australia, Melbourne. Without any reasonable explanation. Well, that actually happened.
A flight to Malaysia from Sydney was diverted to Melbourne after its pilot entered incorrect coordinates of the plane's starting position, an Australian aviation investigation report has found.
This shit actually happened this spring, but they just now released full report on the event. So, let's take a look at it.
Faulty earmuffs prompted the captain and the first officer to swap their preflight duties. The captain usually conducts an external inspection, while the first officer remains in the cockpit to complete preparation procedures.
Okay, sure, both should have trained to handle the job of the other guy better, but that's alright, this happens...
When manually entering the coordinates of the plane's position, the pilot incorrectly entered the longitude from a sign outside the cockpit window as 01519.8 east (15 degrees 19.8 minutes east) instead of 15109.8 east (151 degrees 9.8 minutes east).
Checking coordinates you just entered? Nah, that's for silly people.
The crew had "a number of opportunities to identify and correct the error," the report said, but didn't notice the problem until after the plane became airborne and started tracking in the wrong direction. Several message alerts and sounds suggested the error before takeoff, but the crew ignored them, according to the report.
"This thing is beeping a lot? Maybe we should look out the window and see what's going on?" - "Nah, just turn it off, I have no idea what it does anyways."
Once the captain and the first officer realized the mistake, they tried to fix the system. But it was too late.
This actually is kinda scary, cause that implies that if pilot wants to turn the plane around these days.... he can't? What? Is that how it works now, or these guys are just that bad?
As systems failed further, the crew asked to return to Sydney and conduct a landing without the use of navigation systems. However, weather conditions in Sydney forced the plane to land in Melbourne instead.
This really just tops the cake. After identifying the problem and being totally unable to turn away from Australia, these fuckers couldn't even land at the airport they were redirected to at first. Of well, Melbourne is a solid second choice.
You know, all ended well - after 3 or so hours people got flown to where they were supposed to go, but I can't help but feel very suspect about them Malaysian planes, especially when it will be my time to use one.
All the Way (2016)
So, LBJ was the guy who became president after JFK got shot. Btw, LBJ's vice-president was HHH, and imagine how funny that presidential alliteration! But enough with the humor. Lyndon Johnson, as he got sworn in, took on a hard work of both changing the laws, which didn't make many friends for him, and trying to actually win in next election properly. And that movie in about that period of time - Lyndon's presidency from Kennedy's death and 'till his election.
Bryan Cranston is the lead here, and the movie holds on his charisma and presence, as you can expect. Actually, it's like he reprising his Trumbo role, cause that one also was political and grand. This one is even more so. Now, the movie follows civil rights legislation. Those events are well known historically. But also the movie tries to explore the characters of people involved... And I can't really say much about it. I have seen a few good and bad reviews, but honestly, it's anybody's guess, how well this is represented.
Actually, I will admit my incompetence in this matter and leave you this wikipedia link. That's all I can give today.
