Re: "Unrest In the Middle East" - a valid headline for over 2000 years.

Now, this is the New York Post, so take it with a massive chunk of salt, but supposedly Audio reveals details of Jamal Khashoggi’s torture, decapitation

Any of that could be suspect, especially the bit about the Consul ordering the killing, so I guess we'll see what does or doesn't get released.

Re: The Winter Up There Must Give People Brain Freeze

Weed is legal in Canada today. This is mostly unremarkable, but every time the news mentions we're only the second country EVER (after Uruguay of all places - yes the Netherlands doesn't count as it's only locally unrestricted), to have nationally-legal weed I'm still kind of flabbergasted. In many ...

Re: XCom: Flooding the Market with Dead Poisonlizard Salarymen

Yeah, I think they leaned far too much on artificially restricting your team, which removes the gameplay option of "send lots and lots of disposable guys vs sending a smaller, more highly trained team." Also a lot of the enemy AI stuff is just bullshit, where they're just granted the abili...

Re: "Unrest In the Middle East" - a valid headline for over 2000 years.

The news is all over the place this afternoon, but there's some articles in credible newspapers stating that a Turkish official has spoken to AP, saying they found specific physical evidence Khashoggi was killed. I guess we'll see what comes up when someone finally decides to confirm something. Well...

Re: Bogus, batshit, banal, bizarre, or bicubic: Assorted News

I guess Piers Morgan is, as of this posting, losing his shit over Daniel Craig/James Bond wearing a baby carrier? At one point he told Chris Evans that Captain America wouldn't wear a papoose, which to me sounds more like a dare than anything. I could 100% see Captain America wearing a papoose. Pie...

As the last smouldering ruins of Sears ebb their last light all so a nakedly greedy fuck could rob a huge, storied company to line his own pocket, destroying tens of thousands of jobs in the process, it's nice to pause for a moment and remember when Sears lent its then-considerable weight to the fig...

"Unrest In the Middle East" - a valid headline for over 2000 years.

I keep ending up posting Mideast stuff all over the place. Figure since we already have individual state or country threads, we might as well localize this too. Anyway, the topic of the moment is Jamal Khashoggi. The latest update being that the Saudis are supposedly close to "admitting" t...

Yep. No question.

That reason by the way is that police are the servants of the ruling class and not the people, as is true in any failed or failing state.
