    Don't look now but India can into ICBm testing too... https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/defence/india-successfully-test-fires-agni-5-ballistic-missile/articleshow/62551852.cms http://www.cnn.com/2018/01/18/asia/india-icbm-tests/index.html The missile has been tested five times since 2012, with the most recent test prior to Thursday coming in December 2016. That launch drew the ire of India's two most important geostrategic adversaries: Pakistan and China. The Agni-V's range distance means all of China is now in striking distance, according to Shukla. "It's range has been long known, and India needs it to be able to retaliate against China's eastern seaboard's high value targets," Narang said.
  2. There might be criminal charges related to the Las Vegas shooting filed within the next 60 days. So says a slew of media organizations that have filed suit in court to have hundreds of documents, search warrants, and evidence held by law enforcement to be released to the public. https://www.reviewjournal.com/crime/shootings/criminal-charges-possible-in-las-vegas-shooting-lawyers-say/ These documents can't be released because there is the possibility that other individuals may be indicted. The Las Vegas Review Journal also writes that the suspect "worked hard to cover his tracks" and that he was prescribed Valium. https://www.reviewjournal.com/crime/shootings/gunman-in-las-vegas-shooting-worked-hard-to-cover-tracks/.
  3. WoT v WT effort-thread

    I do but that's mainly because I've been so busy with IRL stuff that I haven't really had the inclination to research another game. Log on, turn brain off, over cursor over red tanks, insult camping heavies and tomatoes. Also the rewards for the past couple months have been too good not to play plus I had my final bit of premium account time which just expired a couple days ago. I WONT be buying more premium time any time soon.

    What is an Aziz Ansari? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aziz_Ansari#Film_career I had to resort to Google/Wikipedia and... I guess I've watched Venture Brothers episode he was in.

    38 minutes of panic in Hawaii Coincidence? Or conspiracy?
  8. General news thread

    It is looking more and more like someone's head is NOT going to roll from what I've seen on the Intertubes. Furthermore, I'm kind of skeptical about this "push the wrong button" narrative. So there's like this big red button in Hawaii's Office of Emergency management (or whatever it's called) which - when pushed - sends out a text stating "WEESA ALL GONNA DIE!!! SAY YOUR PRAYERS CUZ WEEZ A GONNA BE EATING FECES WITH SATAN TONIGHT!!!"... or the like? If so, I want to see it. And if I was a reporter at the Honolulu Star-Advertiser (or the local TV stations) I'd be rattling the cage demanding to see the "accidentally pressed button". Which as we know, doesn't exist. Somebody was on a computer and fucked up somehow. Reading the reaction to this clusterfuck, whether it is the government officials of Hawaii or its citizenry, the people in the The Aloha State not only lack the material means of surviving a nuclear attack (or similar natural disaster) but they lack the mental means of doing the same.

    Hawaii didn't get nuked today. ... I guess we have that going for us.
  11. Collimatrix's Terrible Music Thread

    TIL a few days ago... There is something called "pirate metal" as performed by a bunch of Scotsmen. I had never expected to see a Scottish pirate metal band's music video featuring chicks in swimsuits washing a male donkey while performing a tribute to mexico. And when said Scottish pirate metal band's performance featuring chicks in swimsuits washing a male donkey has a better understanding of basic music theory than the preponderance of current pop music... These are truly... times we live in.
  12. Fuck, even Godzilla knows Haiti is a shithole...
  13. I'd be more concerned about this little shakeup in the White House with Bannon were it not for the fact that historically there has been "weird shit" to quote @Walter_Sobchak quoting Dubya throughout the history of White House. Andrew Jackson is famously quoted regretting that he didn't shoot Henry Clay or hang John C. Calhoun. And of course Vice President Aaron Burr blew away Alexander Hamilton in a duel before being accused of treason. Or how Woodrow Wilson was basically incapacitated after suffering a stroke for the final year of his presidency and his wife Edith essentially acted as the Executive. https://www.pbs.org/newshour/health/woodrow-wilson-stroke Or the run-of-the-mill marital infidelities of Warren G. Harding, or John F. Kennedy or Bubba Clinton or - as it has come to light - George H.W. Bush aka "David Coppafeel". The biggest issue of electing a President who is not a politician and a political outsider is the fact that Donald Trump didn't have the Roladex of political contacts that a normal candidate like a Jeb Bush or Romney or Hillary Clinton has. If Donald Trump wanted to build a golf course in Wales or a Hotel in New Jersey, he has 40 years of contacts whom he could lean on to get the job done. But when it came to the election, Trump had to pretty much rely on the leavings what with the likes of JEB! or Rubio or Cruz gobbling up all the available political talent. Add to the fact that Trump's political campaign was very lean in terms of money spent, he didn't have too many quality foot soldiers he could plug into the White House when he got there.
  14. Discovery is actually pretty good and actually seems to be made by people who care and understand about Star Trek Canon while packing in shit tons of action. Was going to write about this in one of our Star Trek threads but have been too busy/sick/can't be arsed in various shades the past couple weeks.

    Whatever it is, the study got Washington state dead to rights with the atrocity that is our road system.
