  1. I've seen "Justin from Canada" described as basically a sock puppet by Canadian youtubers I'm subscribed to, in the near literal sense of the word
  2. The official statement was per curiam, so the decision was rendered as a single group But among the dissenting(partial for, partial against) judges, it was Thomas, Alito, and Gorsuch listed. So Sotomayor and RBG apparently did not oppose the action.

    StuG III Thread (and also other German vehicles I guess)

    Well damn, now I'm curious why EDIT - Referencing Sturgeon's opinion
  4. Interesting form factor on the T2, it has that "brick-gun" look like the AA-12
  5. I take it you've seen that one Harvard professor Ted Cruz skewered on Twitter the other day?
  6. Implying that Millenials are worth saving Speaking as a '93 baby </innercynic>
  7. The day they passed the bill in the House, my mother got a call informing her that because our household makes too much money compared to the previous year(A bump from just under $50K to just over it, 75% is based on my father's C&P/SS/retirement funds) she has to pay back to the IRS some subsidy she received to the tune of an amount that exceeds her current annual income as an adjunct professor at the local community college. Oh, and the escalating premiums will also exceed her annual income in the next year. Violating the individual mandate as an option also happens to exceed her annual income. So staying or going, she's about to be nuked financially unless something changes.
  8. Just the 21st century? That's some groundbreaking data pool they got there

    StuG III Thread (and also other German vehicles I guess)

    There was a meeting in early January 1943 where Hitler looked at the upcoming panzers for the summer offensives and demanded even more powerful weapons be explored. Thus the 75mm and 88mm L/100's for the Panther and Ferdinand respectively were "born" and died behind Hitler's back basically. There was a bit of past history to this decision making process to note however: Hitler had ordered the 5cm L/60 be developed and deployed to Panzer III's prior to the invasion of Russia and threw a real fit when his Generals ignored the order thinking the 5cm L/42 was sufficient. He was informed about the reality of the situation on his birthday review of the Panzerwaffe
  10. Part of what made that article so funny IIRC was that a couple months earlier they were decrying Trump's declared intention to withdraw from the Paris Agreement. Like everyone else was on that train and we were just holding back the saving of the world. Suddenly there's no hope no matter what we do for the next several centuries.
  11. Reminds me of the time I used to follow the Facebook page of the website "I Fucking Love Science" until about last October. They published an article talking about how we've basically hit the point of no return on climate change. There's no more hope to be had. It's a done deal and we'll all have to live with the consequences. Since the issue was now "settled", I thought now was a good a time as any to unsub from that page.

    WoT v WT effort-thread

    The 3/5/7, 5/10, and 15 flush templates were the highlights, but WG's video implied well over 10 major templates which MM will now pattern itself around to balance teams
  13. We might be getting to Shieldwall mode if Based Stickman becomes a trend

    Some of the mid tier LTs also got magic modules that despite sharing the same exact name exist separately from the rest of their researchable counterparts with some improved stats So the VK 16.02 enjoys the 5cm L/60 firing 100mm pen standard ammo instead of 67 like Panzer III. Or VK 28.01 using the KwK 40 penetrating 132mm with standard ammo instead of 110 on the Panzer IV/StuG family The M1's on the T21 also got a slight buff to pen
  15. Saw one comment that claims that they are warehoused factory fresh stock. If true that means whoever gets to own one could be a first time user in the same category as the GI's that went on march 70 years ago
  16. Georgian senator Richard Russell Jr. tried that in reverse in 1947(on the justification that the UK couldn't replay it's war debt to the US, they should be annexed), it didn't work. The UK cited that the Confederate State of Georgia had a standing debt with them, suddenly the lines went cold
  17. It's a direct sequel apparently. Several characters are supposed to return for this one, Michael Fassbender being the most obvious one(he plays both the android from Prometheus and a "rebuilt" version of it hanging with this new crew)
  18. Maybe it's because it's been a while since I saw Prometheus, or maybe because it was godawful, but wasn't there a problem with the trailers for that one holding it in too long that when we went and saw it the collective response was "That's it?!" ?
  19. I'd assume they'd at least try to vote more than some other fringe groups like the AnComs/AnCaps
  20. On top of it all his publisher, after everything prior to this week, canned his book deal

    StuG III Thread (and also other German vehicles I guess)

    In the scope of the Tiger's fuel consumption, I don't think it would have been useful compared to say getting another Panzer III or IV a little further
  22. I still get the small nagging feeling this is Chinese cinema's snipe at Mongolians for some (recent) reason
  23. Not sure I'd be more concerned in the hypothetical scenarios that either the CIA takes to shitposting on Twitter or that the CIA is actually trying to draw attention to themselves

    Movie tanks and terrible Vismods

    At the pace they're going you could paint that thing in dark green, give it some mudguards and call it a Leopard 2A4 with the same level of passability
