  1. Clearly New Jersey needs stronger gun laws, even though they have some of the strongest in the nation. Hey everyone, let's all blame inanimate objects and make up excuses to take away things from people who have not and would never do anything wrong with said objects!
  2. Our small arms industry would benefit from some Russian influence.
  3. So we aren't talking about the dangers of our elected officials secretly working with our adversaries to undermine our national interests. The scope of the conversation is specifically about how Trump is working with our adversaries to undermine our national interests, got it. I want to make sure that I'm tracking this correctly. Trump, the populist candidate, was so unpopular that he couldn't have won without outside help from the Russians. The Comey starts sniffing around for collusion, so Trump fires him, triggering a full blown special council investigation into collusion. But it's OK that Trump fired Comey, because Comey used his official position to influence the election which causes Hillary to lose. Does that sound about right?
  4. How are those two comparable? Should we list all of the world leaders that Obama prostrated himself before? Your want to talk about people working with the Russians on things that are detrimental to our national interests, let's talk about it. Like that time Ted Kennedy sent a letter to the Soviets asking them to be patient and to hold off on foreign policy decisions until Reagan could be removed. But I guess since isn't talking about how Trump is actually a puppet of the Kremlin, then it's "completely unrelated".
  5. Fuck, you caught me, I'm secretly an agent of the Kremlin, just like Trump is. Yes, the whole in Obama thing is completely unrelated to what's happening with Trump. I must have imagined the part where it was about doing something favorable to Putin that would be unpopular with a large number of people here in the US. Damn this sluggish schizophrenia of mine.
  6. Nothing like using your official position in the Justice department to attempt to disrupt a presidential election. But you know, the big story is the Russian dressing that Trump had on his salad, must be collusion. Let us not forget this timeless quote "Tell Vlad that I'll have more flexibility after the election." - Donald Trump Wait, I might have misattributed that.....

    It takes a lot of time and practice to get used to the drop. That is the skill component of the vehicle that will keep people from saying that it's overpowered. Also, the stadia don't actually correspond with the range, there is roughly 10% error between point of aim and point of impact.

    So, a hidden feature in WT 1.79 patch is a top attack munition, disguised as a 165mm demolition shell. This combines the effects of auto-bounce angles and fuse delay to rain down retarded amounts of shrapnel through weak turret roof and engine deck armor. This is repeatable as well. And if for some reason you mess up this trick shot, you stand a decent chance of just fusing on the turret roof itself, with the most catastrophic of results. Fools who use this tank will try to go for upper glacis shots, but that will generally limit the shrapnel to the drivers compartment. The correct place to aim is turret faces and roofs, or side hull. Don't worry about fusing on tracks or skirting, the results will be the same.

    The memewagon has two very different bands where it is effective. You can use it at short range to hulksmash people into an alternate dimension, or you can use it to remove campers who are so far away that they will not see the shell arcing in to hit their roof armor. My first battle out had a mixture of both; I bagged a T29 and Magach 3 at +800m, a Panther II at 400m, and an M5A1 and T32 at about 100m

    North Korea, you so crazy!

    North Korea, you so crazy!

    I'm just waiting for the left wing media to turn into complete hawks on the Norks. We will get articles about how we didn't deserve Obama, and that peace and denuclearization is a bad thing.
  12. Russians trying to influence elections to cause turmoil in western alliances?! Sixty years ago that would have been newsworthy. Up next, scientists predict that the sun will rise in the east tomorrow.
  13. Good ol Sessions, doing his job to the best of his abilities..... Oh wait. The fact that so many blatant crimes have gone unpunished is proof enough that he is not doing his job.

    This came way too late for me to care. It's pretty bitchin, but it's also WoT..... Also, pointless because it's not public.

    I finally decided to unlock it.... just before the new patch drops.
  16. Worst. President. Ever. Can't even do shady deals properly. When you fail where your predecessors have succeeded, you need to reevaluate your life. He also lost the range war in Utah. Sad! Black Jesus lost to a bunch of cattle herding Mormons.
  17. Wow, if they are serious about that article, then they can't impeach Trump for crimes committed before he took office. And what crimes has he committed since he took office?

    Full disclosure; I've been dealing with suicidal depression for 16 years now. I've got a decent handle on it by now, and I can confirm that it is a mental valley that you have to get to the other side of. Once you know and understand that, it is much easier to recognize those cycles and see yourself to the other side (no, not that other side). It's nice to see other people confirm the backed into a corner hypothesis.

    It is heavily male linked. I'm curious to know if our primal competitive nature leads to greater psychological isolation, or if that is just confirmation bias on my part. Could there be something in the male psyche that makes us feel more isolated than females? Is it just the testosterone doing is thing. I'm convinced that there is a link between the feeling of being backed into a corner and male aggression and suicides, but I could be entirely wing about that.

    Suicide is most certainly a mental health issue, with depression being a very common factor in it, but that is simply a precursor. The tipping point is essentially the feeling of being backed into a corner with only one way out. If there are other ways to get away from what is causing your problems, most people with take them. It's only when they feel that all other solutions are exhausted that they decide to rage quit, and who can blame them? But this is just an anecdotal example from my own experience, it most certainly varies from person to person and their own circumstances.

    The beautiful part is that the best game play is still in 7.7 and below, maybe even 8.0, so all these new 9.0+ vehicles are irrelevant. Sure, the are really cool, but end tier game play is nothing but campfest pixel hunt ass cancer anyways. Let the try hards have their fancy new toys, there is plenty of fun to be had elsewhere.

    Place your bets! What will be the BR of the Leo 2? 1 to 1 for 7.7 5 to 1 for 8.3 10 to 1 for 8.7 20 to 1 for 9.0 100 to 1 for 9.3 10000 to 1 for 9.7+ I'm also expecting to see a thread start on the forums today where filthy Nazi pedos cry about how the Leo 2A4 is under powered and needs an armor buff while having it's BR lowered.

    That might actually be worse than home built open bolt API SMGs..... They are getting wise to the whole 80% thing. I don't know what they can do about it from a legal standpoint, at some point a chunk of metal can't be a firearm.

    United States Gun Control Megathread

    Ah yes, the old "let's compromise" argument. "Why don't you want to compromise with me?" Because, as you stated, you want to take all guns away, and I want firearm laws to be considerably relaxed from where they are now, so we are already at a compromise. The mistake you make is thinking that I'm perfectly fine with the ways things are right now, and that my desire is to maintain status quo.
