|Divers on Body Retrieval Mission Find a LIVE Nigerian cook who survived 3 Days Under Sea |
"What is your rank? You're the cook? They always survive."
Ok, if I ever have to go to sea, I hope the rest of the crew is cool with prepacked meals every day because I am the goddamned cook.
|Xenosaga Episode2 Commercial - Can we kiss now? |
Well, it may have just saved her.
|Killer Instinct: Orchid and Spinal Revealed|
What an ugly looking game.
The character's musculature and proportions are way off, and not in an artistically interesting way. It just looks like the character model was built by an artist who isn't very good.
The rigging and animations are even worse. Look at how she moves at :25. She just slides her feet together as if she's on roller skates. All the game footage shows poor fluidity between moves, and at 1:04 they even zoom the camera in so you can get a good look at her batons passing right through her opponent's body while he wobbles back and forth and doesn't respond in synch with the actual impacts.
Maybe it's fun to play, but it certainly looks no better than similar games that came out 5+ years ago, so it's not doing a very good job of convincing me to spend hundreds of dollars on a new console.
|Hellsing Ultimate: Abridged episode 4|
So it turns out that if you rewrite the dialogue, change the genre to comedy, rework the dubbing and cut the run-time in half you can make even the most tediously overwrought anime not suck.
|NOAH Official Trailer|
The most improbable part of the whole thing is the dimensions of the boat.
The bible is very exact about the dimensions of the ark. 300 x 50 x 30 cubits, which is about half the size of a modern container ship. That is too small to fulfill its alleged purpose.
So God could use magic to make all that water appear and disappear, and make animals like kangaroos and grizzly bears appear in the middle east so they could get on the boat, and regrow all the forests and other ecosystems overnight afterward so everything didn't starve, but it's all for naught because he explicitly ordered his faithful servant to toil away on a set of boat schematics that he, in his infinite wisdom, would have known was too small.
As for this movie, at least it's being made by competent professionals instead of the usual fundy whackjobs imitating those professionals who produce most christian media, so it'll probably just suck instead of aggressively sucking.
|Resonance of Fate: boobs|
Translating comedy for a foreign audience is very difficult as so much of it is grounded in the perceptions, expectations and shared experiences of the source culture. Even if you translate it perfectly the audience might not find it funny.
That said, this made me cringe for the voice actors who were presented with this script.
|No Sex Please, We're Japanese |
While a lower birthrate might indeed be a desirable thing in the long term, in the medium term it threatens to create a societal age distribution with far too much of the population retired and too few workers.
The concern is how to get through that transitional period (which will last several decades) without an economic collapse.
|Couer D'Alene City Council Meeting from 11/4/2013|
Well, that was also the LSD era.
|Evangelical 'historian' David Barton: Climate change is caused by abortion.|
David Barton has no academic credentials or training and his books have been eviscerated by legitimate scholars, but he tells conservative Americans what they want to hear (such as his thoroughly debunked book from last year wherein he claimed Thomas Jefferson was a devout christian), so to them he's such a respected expert that there is a movement to draft him to run for the US senate.
If he's considering the senate run, it's no surprise that he's expanding his expertise from fake history to fake climate science. Expect opinions with equally fake sourcing on tax policy, health care, foreign policy, race relations, religious freedom, gay rights, contraception and abortion in the coming months.
|'Macguyver' was anti-gun Liberal Propaganda|
I really love that it's completely acknowledged by everyone involved that solving problems without killing people is "liberal sensibility" and the only argument is over whether or not that's disgraceful.
|Bill Maher New Rules: When Did Christian Values Change From Love Thy Neighbor|
The "professional bum" is a largely fictional conservative scapegoat to justify their social darwinist view that poor people are always to blame for their problems and the only thing they deserve is to be shamed into trying harder.
And even if a few welfare queens really do exist, so fucking what? I don't care if some asshole with a trust fund applies for a food stamp card so he can rip the government off for a few hundred dollars a month. That's not even remotely close to the most offensive thing the government spends my tax payments on.
|Apostate: Book Trailer|
This book also postulates that Nathaniel Hawthorne and William Shakespeare were complicit in a centuries-long effort by artists, writers and actors to undermine and destroy christianity.
Yes, Shakespeare, whose family had to practice their catholicism in secret because it was against the law in 16th century England, and Nathaniel Hawthorne, direct descendant of the judge at the Salem Witch Trials, were apparently persecutors of christians.
|360N0$C0P3 T3NN15 $H0T|
Wait a minute, there is an actual human being named Kirsten Flipkens? That's not some wacky best friend supporting character from a Disney Channel sitcom?
| Advice for all the Middle Aged Western Guys who are too scared to leave the old hag at home|
Five stars for "Renting a hooker who lets you kiss her is basically the same experience as having an intimate relationship." I'd just have no response to someone who told me that with a straight face.
|Ronald Reagan Answers a question about armageddon|
"The prophesy is coming true, it just might take another thousand years" is the kind of stupid cop-out people probably said a thousand years ago when Jesus was already a thousand years late for his second coming.
| Keith Olbermann Discusses Concussions in the NFL|
You are correct about pro players suffering early onset dementia being only the tip of the iceberg.
CTE has been found in the brains of football players as young as 18 and has also been found in the brains of football players who were never actually diagnosed with concussions. In fact, it's been found in the brain of almost every football that has ever been examined for signs of the condition.
It seems likely that simply playing football is inherently dangerous and carries a high likelihood of causing brain damage.
|Ruby's Guns: Criminals don't want you to buy guns |
So basically there's no point in having laws because criminals will break them anyway, so we may as well just replace the entire legal system with anarchy and vigilantism.
|1v1 Lazer Tag|
So we've finally found the source material for gun kata.
|Opt Out - The Exam (Obamacare)|
They've made it pretty clear that by "opt out" they mean "go without health insurance."
The best case scenario they are aiming for here is to convince so many people to not participate in the insurance system that it becomes nonviable and collapses, leaving people who need desperately need health care but cannot pay for it themselves to suffer or die on their own like you'd see in the absolute worst failed-state hellholes.
Their only plan is to destroy the system built by their political rivals out of pure spite. They have no intention whatsoever of helping anyone who ruins their health or finances by participating in this "opt out" campaign. This is an attempt to precipitate a humanitarian disaster as a political stunt and they want you to volunteer to be part of it.
This is profoundly disgusting.
|Shadow War of Succession (3DO) Sasha vs Erika|
I can see why you'd why all parties involved might want to keep this struggle for succession in the shadows.
