This is just too funny not to share:

Forwarding "We will fight until the last American" as the new NATO motto.

Shared on FB.  TY Nate. That's legitimately of public interest up here in Canuckistan. Ezra has some pull, unfortunately.

 

It's funny that up in Canada people could already smell his shit, but Rebel built a US presence for YEARS without anyone sniffing it out.

I did wonder why there were so many Canadian alt-right commentators, though.

Regarding the Moore thing, the governor of Alabama needs to suspend the election and give it a redo in 6 months.

 

Meanwhile, people are posting videos of themselves destroying their coffeemakers because Keurig pulled their advertising from Hannity over his comments supporting Moore.  I hope an automaker doesn't do the same, I would hate for these people to have to torch their cars as well.

That was the result of Media Matters doing their usual shitbag thing and going after people who advertise on right-wing media with manufactured "public" outrage. Keurig also advertises with plenty of other media outlets, so their involvement with Hannity was purely business. ITYOOL 2017, coffee makers are politicized.

Eh, Keurig apologized to Hannity and the boycott is off. Well, mostly off. If one is to believe Cuckbart's reporting - not a habit I am given to - Keurig is still boycotting Breitbart. Although I didn't know Keurig advertised there...

Joe Biden has decided to make an appearance on TV to tell his loyal Democratic viewers that the guy who shot the Texas church shooter should not have a "semi-automatic assault rifle"

 

Then again, this is Joe "Buy a shotgun" Biden

 

The worst thing about the Biden "buy a shotgun" meme is all the tactitard guys going around drooling, "Hurr, hurr, look how bad shotties are at everything" see this video of girls being made to do stupid shit with their boyfriend's pistol grip piece of garbage firing 3 inch magnum shells. Wen, no, buying a shotgun is actually a great idea. Get one with an actual stock and a practical length barrel and you can use it for just about anything including deer hunting, bird hunting, trap shooting, or sending some gangbanger screaming to hell.

 

Not meaning this as a complaint against you Legion. Just saying...

 

Edit: This rant of mine probably is better served for the gonz section of the forum though...

So despite claims of no prior contact, Moore presided over a divorce proceeding that his accuser was a party in back in 1999. Further, it sounds like the "yearbook signature" evidence may have been forged, as it was signed the way that Moore's assistant would sign documents for him, and is similar to the way the papers in the divorce documents were signed......

I have seen ‘internet experts’ say that the yearbook signature used two different inks, and that it used a title he didn’t have at the time.

Cnn: Moore is a rapist! We have very old and unreliable proof!

 

Alabama voters: ok... So you just got this information. Coincidentally, during the run up to an election. 

 

Cnn: look! We have this easily fakable picture of a yearbook signature!

 

Alabama voters: right, ok. Still seems like convenient timing. Like, I get that sexual assault is wrong. No one is disputing that. But these allegations are from years ago, and the media has been known to stretch truths to sway elections. And I'm not sure how these allegations stop him from doing his job. I mean, bill Clinton did his job and probably was a way worse guy in this regard. 

 

 

Cnn: breaking! All Alabama residents are terrible hypicrits who love under aged rape! 

 

Alabama voters: that's not at all what-

 

Smarmy internet jerkoffs: haha the Bible says no pedophilia, you ignorant Southerners sicken me.

 

Alabama voters: you know what, fuck it. He gets my vote.

And the day after he wins.

      After seeing the rampant crack down on speech in the UK, I decided that more should be done than just Thoughts and Prayers. 
       
      I know that it's a scary time for our UK members. Knowing that what you say on the internet can put you on the wrong side of a Bobby's nightstick, well, I find that despicable. 
       
      So I've created this place for all your impure or degenerate thoughts. Here's how it works. 
       
      Perhaps you want to say something "offensive". Instead of saying it yourself, you can message any US member of this forum and have them act as your avatar of avarice. 
       
      For example, say you had a particularly heinous fish and chips at the local pub. You may want to say, "Oi, that cheeky fucker Barnaby William can't do a proper chip if he had a fryer for hands!"
       
      This on it's own could send you straight to jail for defamation. Moreso, if instead of chips that sent you reeling it happened to be a kebab from Omar down the street. 
       
      Now your crime has gone from offensive to racially insensitive!
       
      Anytime such an urge comes along, call on your ex colonial friends. We will translate and post your complaint for all the world to revel in, free of charge!
       
      I personally think Omar should learn to pull the fucking kebab off heat before it's crisper than his wife's crotch and blacker than his beard. That tosser!
       
      See? Don't you feel better? And now, no one will be knocking on your door, serving you with a summons for being a racist git.

      i personally support it, by finding the KGB Felix Dzerzhinsky greatly improved state scurrility both inside the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and abroad (their jurisdiction was only domestic, but they kept the internationally influential people safe at night)   a dedicated defender of both the Revolution and all the Soviet peoples     what do you think of this news?

      Colonization Of The Solar System

       
      This thread is for discussing the colonization of the solar system, mainly focusing on Mars and the Moon since they are the most relevant. 
      Main topics include transportation, industry, agriculture, economics, civil engineering,  energy production and distribution, habitation, ethics and politics. 
       
       
       
       
      First order of business, our glories tech messiah Elon Musk has set his eyes on Mars:
      Reason stated? Because being a interplanetary species beats being a single planetary species. 
       
      How does he plan to do this?
      By sending two cargo ships by 2022 to Mars for surveying and building  basic infrastructure, then two years later in 2024 sending 4 ships, two cargo ships and two crewed ships to start the colonization. First thing would be to build fuel refineries and expanding infrastructure to support more ships, then starting to mine and build industry. 
       
      This could mark a new era in human history, a second colonization era, this time without the genocides. The economic potentials are incredible, a single asteroid could easily support the entire earths gold, silver and platinum production for a decade. The moon holds a lot of valuable Helium 3, which right now is worth 12 000 dollars per kilogram! Helium is a excellent material for nuclear reactors. 
       
       
       

       
       
      Speaking about the moon, several companies have set their eyes on the moon, and for good reason.
      In my opinion,  the moon has the possibility of becoming a mayor trade hub for the solar system.  Why is this? Simply put, the earth has a few pesky things called gravity, atmosphere and environmentalists. This makes launching rockets off the moon much cheaper. The moon could even have a space elevator with current technology!  If we consider Elon Musk's plan to travel to Mars, then the Moon should be able to supply cheaper fuel and spaceship parts to space, to then be sent to Mars. The Moon is also rich in minerals that have not sunk to the core yet, and also has a huge amount of rare earth metals, which demands are rapidly increasing. Simply put, the Moon would end up as a large exporter to both the earth and potentially Mars. Importing from earth would almost always be more expensive compared to a industrialized Moon. 
       
      Now how would we go about colonizing the moon? Honestly, in concept it is quite simple.When considering locations, the South pole seems like the best candidate. This is because of it's constant sun spots, which could give 24 hour solar power to the colony and give constant sunlight to plants without huge power usage. The south pole also contain dark spots which contains large amount of frozen water, which would be used to sustain the agriculture and to make rocket fuel. It is true that the equator has the largest amounts of Helium 3 and the best location for rocket launches. However, with the lack of constant sunlight and frequent solar winds and meteor impacts, makes to unsuited for initial colonization. If the SpaceX's BFR successes, then it would be the main means of transporting materials to the moon until infrastructure is properly developed. Later a heavy lifter would replace it when transporting goods to and from the lunar surface, and specialized cargo ship for trans portion between the Moon, Earth and Mars. A space elevator would reduce prices further in the future.  Most likely, a trade station would be set up in CIS lunar space and Earth orbit which would house large fuel tanks and be able to hold the cargo from  cargo ships and heavy lifters. Sun ports would be designated depending on their amount of sunlight. Year around sunlight spots would be dedicated to solar panels and agriculture. Varying sun spots would be used for storage, landing pads and in general everything. Dark spots would be designated to mining to extract its valuable water. Power production would be inistially almost purely solar, with some back up and smoothing out generators. Later nuclear reactors would take over, but serve as a secondary backup energy source. 
       
       
      The plan:
      If we can assume the BFR is a success, then we have roughly 150 ton of payload to work with per spaceship. The first spaceship would contain a satellite to survey colonization spot. Everything would be robotic at first. Several robots capable of building a LZ for future ships,  mining of the lunar surface for making solar panels for energy production, then mining and refinement for fuel for future expeditions. The lunar colony would be based underground, room and pillar mining would be used to cheaply create room that is also shielded from radiation and surface hazards. Copying the mighty tech priest, a second ship would come with people and more equipment. With this more large scale mining and ore refinement would be started. Eventually beginning to manufacturing their own goods. Routinely BFRs would supply the colony with special equipment like electronics, special minerals and advanced equipment and food until the agricultural sector can support the colony.  The colony would start to export Helium 3 and rocket fuel, as well as spacecraft parts and scientific materials. Eventually becoming self sustaining, it would stop importing food and equipment, manufacturing it all themselves to save costs. 
       
      I am not the best in agriculture, so if some knowledge people could teach us here about closed loop farming, or some way of cultivating the lunar soil. Feel free to do so.
       
       
      Mining:
      I found a article here about the composition of the lunar soil and the use for it's main components:

      In short, the moon has large amounts of oxygen, silicon, aluminum, calcium, iron, magnesium and titanium in it's soil.
      How do we refine them? By doing this.
       
      Aluminum could be used for most kinds of wiring to requiring high conductivity to density ratio. Meaning power lines, building cables and such. Aluminum is not very suited for building structures on the surface because of the varying temperatures causing it to expand and contract. Iron or steel is better suited here. Aluminum could however be used in underground structures where temperatures are more stable.  Aluminum would also most likely end up as the main lunar rocket fuel. Yes, aluminum as rocket fuel. Just look at things like ALICE, or Aluminum-oxygen. Aluminum-oxygen would probably win out since ALICE uses water, which would be prioritized for the BFRs, since I am pretty sure they are not multi-fuel.

      Believe it or not, but calcium is actually a excellent conductor, about 12% better than copper. So why do we not use it on earth? Because it has a tendency to spontaneously combust in the atmosphere. In a vacuum however, this does not pose a problem. I does however need to be coated in a material so it does not deteriorate. This makes it suited for "outdoor" products and compact electrical systems like electric motors. Yes, a calcium electric motor.

      Like I said a couple days ago actually, I said I thought it was very likely that Ma Ying-Jeou would lose the next election as he and his administration are very unpopular, and I guess it turned out to be true, also, aside from being the first female president, She's also the second candidate to win under the Democratic Progressive Party as opposed to the more traditonal Kuomintang which has held it for 5 (arguably 6) terms. and her party has also won a majority in the legislative Yuan, which is actually a pretty significant swing.
