Maybe the better question is "Would you put it past Trump to shove his way to the front of the group?"

Re: War. War never changes. (Except when it does)

KPCC mentioned something about NATO on the way to work, something about the requirement that member nations spend at least 2% GDP on defense. Not sure, was too tired and not listening closely. But I did suddenly wonder about something. You know all those crazy firearms that come out of places like B...

No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!

By elaborate torture device or simple age. Whichever comes first.

Re: Oh shit, what are we gonna do now?

Yeah, he's great, but a bit too on-the-nose. I use the radio as a morning alarm, so that usually means one of the first things I hear waking up is what crazy bullshit The Bastard has said in the past few hours. Centrifuge Kerbal just about sums up the feeling.

Re: Obituaries

It's... difficult to be fair with these negative obituaries. Of course it's awful from an atheistic perspective; human consciousness winking out and crumbling into oblivion and all that jazz. But it's hard to feel anything but bitterness when remembering that- and apologies if I'm repeating myself- ...

Re: Hey [%target] Whatcha Playin'?

I was going to complain about how I get motion sickness playing Eve: Valkyrie on the VR, but then I realized I'd probably get just as sick if I tried anything like that in real life. I mean, my stomach got upset​ the last time I went go-kart racing, so a double J-turn at Mach 3 probably wouldn't fee...

I'd still rather see literally anyone else in the White House. If Trump keeps on like he's doing, I'd be surprised if the US doesn't end up getting nuked by Canada.

Re: GOP Will Shit Itself

Didn't the Republicans of North Carolina get in trouble over something like this less than a year ago? Something about trying to take away the newly elected Democrat governor's powers while giving more to the state congress.

Re: Oh shit, what are we gonna do now?

"Pretty cool?" Pretty cool?? Rock climbing or 3D-printing a lightsaber is pretty cool. Buzzing an ally's airspace with stealth jets is creepy and smacks of authoritarianism.

François, over in the war thread wrote:I'm very much getting an impression of an 11 year old playing GTA with cheats on.

There's a fake news story floating around that Malia Obama was arrested in Chicago for hanging out with "a gang of thugs," doing all sorts of terrible things like drinking, drugs, and dogfighting. I guess this is the work of some group deliberately planting hoax stories to dupe racists. Ca...
