Re: Brazil’s leader to send army to fight huge fires in the Amazon

This man is being pretty shitty if you ask me. He is PRETENDING to care about trees in the Amazon (which is important mind you) but he has less concern for the human beings in his country's prisons. As far as I can tell there is little talk of reforming the prison system, which is abysmal. Most of t...

Re: Hell has a new inmate: David Koch has died.

Dying at 79 is pretty good by some standards. Though dying from cancer isn't something I'd wish on anyone. It can be a really bad experience, depending on what "treatments" they put you through. Oh he funded the Right Wing Movement...oh I see. I wonder what he thinks of his money now. If he is think...

Re: The High Price of Insulin Is Killing US Citizens

Economic cleansing. And also indirect ethnic cleansing, since the the poor are disproportionately racial minorities. It's a bunch of things. Its a human rights disaster. It's a health crisis. It's that AND a war on the poor and disadvantaged. All the people making money off of INSULIN should be bey...

Re: I'm in an Anime? (To Aru Majutsu no Index)

Moved to appropriate Forum. Thanks. I should update the post to reflect the move. One time, while playing Charades, I got Aleister Crowley: The Theory and Practice of Magick in one.

I'm in an Anime? (To Aru Majutsu no Index)

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. I found an interesting anime. Yeah. It's a bit of Japanese animation, but what intrigues me isn't that. It's the plot. Oh and the fact that I'm in it. Or I should say a character with my name is in it. I want to do an in depth discussion on this, but ...

Re: Beware, I have returned.

ARE YOU THREATENING ME!? The correct question is "AM I BEING DETAINED?" No joke, I've seen this tried by many people on Youtube videos. They'll also try to claim that they're "traveling" and not "driving". It's a semantic debate because supposedly the right to travel is indeed a thing. However, to ...

Re: Nostalgia

It’s funny how much of our media now seems to play on this. Star Wars is obviously another one, given how many reacted to TFA as being a rehash of ANH for a new generation. Yet, I can’t not enjoy the re-emergence of synthwave, or the ‘80s æsthetic in film, or 8-bit mobile games. Stuff like that can...

Re: Nostalgia

Nostalgia is a good and a bad thing. It reinforces a "things were better in the past" mentality. Sometimes that is a good thing because it allows you to have a good time to look back on and a way to improve one's current time. However, it becomes bad when it encourages stagnation. There is nothing w...

This is exactly what the terrorists do. If they're the allies of America then surely they should have to answer for their a...

Re: African History?

If you're looking for interesting African cultures, look at the peoples of the Congo, the Yoruba, and the Ethiopians and Eritreans. Egypt is an overfocused one, but it has underrated dynasties that are very worth a historians interest. I would also look at the linguistic aspects of the aformentioned...

Re: The Darkest Hour (Gary Oldman plays Churchill).

Sounds like an interesting movie, even if it's 90% propaganda. I've seen polarizing figures get both good and bad movie adaptations. Even yours truly got a bad movie depiction. So it pretty much boils down to the director, screenwriter, cast, and studio. A good movie should succeed in showing a pers...

Charles Manson was a fascinating person, even if you take into account what he is said to have done. I find it really weird. What I find even weirder is how for such a clear cut case of murder, it was not treated as such. In the trial, it was for the most part dominated by the prosecution. This is n...

Re: What constitutes anime these days

The only anime I've ever cared about was Some Kind of Magical Index. It has a certain charm to it. Also, there's an appearance by Yours Truely. I think they messed some things up, but overall a neat watch. Nothing too hardcore though.
