      She is a total bitch and honestly, the tories are largely to blame for the terror attacks happening. Constant police cuts will let things happen as they get overstretched.
      But her days as PM are numbered. I'd be surprised if she lasts much past the UK leaving the EU if she even makes it that far.

      To top it all, after constantly calling Corbyn a terrorist sympathiser, she goes and does a deal with a party with terrorist connections.
      I'd say she is the worst Prime Minister since Chamberlain.

      I think Chamberlain was better than Thatcher TBH, all he did was try and appease Hitler and fail to prepare for war which led to the deaths of millions of people. Doesn't even compare to Thatcher.

  • I just realized that spoilers for Pirates of the Carribeans 5 are the exact same as spoilers for Star Wars 7

    Warning, spoilers:
    The fan-favourite old guy introduced since the very first movie and who just so happens to be revealed as the father of a new important (but annoying) character in this latest installment falls to his death at the end as a sacrifice to save the others by buying them more time

    I'm saying Davy Jones wins by default because Kraken and going underwater
    Queen Anne is kinda impossible to board, but who gives a shit when you can remotely eat it
    other than that the Silent Mary is way too shitty to do any harm to the Black Pearl or the Flying Dutchman
    So I'm saying Jones > Barbossa > Salazar > Black Beard

      What is this again? The new pirates of the Caribbean movie?
    • Gouchnox
      Gouchnox
      Salazar is from the 5th, Black Beard is from the 4th
  • So I saw Pirates of the Carribeans: Dead Men tell no Tales yesterday night and here's my spoiler-free insight if you care:
    Continuation of the series, more curses and legends, more macguffins, more evil pirates, more unpractical action scenes with explosions everywhere
    The loving couple is miles better than in 4th, because they actually have character and voice lines, but as expected nowhere near swan+turner
    The pirates in this movie are all stupid, get used to it. Jack Sparrow himself has no grand plan or scheme, doesn't set up anyone for his own sake
    I'm a bit tired of evil undead crew sailing on a black shipwreck with weird powers we've already seen before trying to kill jack and get to the macguffin
    This movie lacks stakes and motives real bad. At no point did I fear for any of the characters because the villain had nothing else going for him than "kill jack" (so long, days of barbosas and davy jones)

      Overall it was nice and cool, a fun time to hang around with a predictable movie because this is a blockbuster. I know I sound very critical, that's because I am, but trust me it's not as bad as the 4th and despite some minor details I cited, some useless characters and some dragged out action scenes, it's real fun to watch.

      If you plan on watching it (which I recommend) and haven't watched the 4th (good on you), just know that the Black Pearl is in a bottle that Jack has, and that Barbosa is rich with a cool sword and a missing leg.
    • Gouchnox
      Gouchnox
      When I say "stupid" and "better than the 4th" I mean that I don't think this movie has plot points as stupid as the entire spanish fleet outrunning the english and the pirates, working their hardest on an expedition just to break a rock and to chalices they themselves acquired and leave it there for the others to salvage

      That isn't really a defence for the americans, electing a populist means a significant proportion of the community is dumb enough to get sucked in by the populist bullshit.

      The basis of the American government was just fine and actually worked back when it was first put into use. There haven't been any big enough attempts to really change the government that's currently in use until recently in the last 30 years, but because the government is full of greedy, powerful assholes of politics with some charisma, they refuse to allow the government to change because that would mean most of them lose money and power. They don't care what happens to the poor as long as they get paid more and more. Did you actually know that a retired president still gets paid quite a large sum until their death? do you think that's fair to the working class? it isn't. At the moment America isn't very stable and there's a higher than usual chance of a second civil war. That's why as soon as I get the chance, I am leaving this shithole of a country, it's not promising and full of opportunity at all. Disclaimer : I don't really know the whole of politics and I'm not even really in my 20s but it doesn't take a lot of intelligence to see that America is falling. Also, I probably may have got a few things wrong, maybe not, I don't fully 100% know.
    • Jarr2003
      Jarr2003
      @Drago America isn't even close to a civil war at the moment. In order for a civil war to realistically happen, a couple entire states would need to attempt to leave the U.S, and there's not nearly enough tension in the U.S to cause that to happen. The Confederacy only happened because of decades of increasing tension, and that was primarily because of slavery. While America certainly isn't at it's best, it's not civil war bad.
    • Drago_meh
      Drago_meh
      the civil war was not mostly about slavery. PERIOD. that's just textbook cover up, it was more about how the north was trying to put more laws and taxes on the south, the abolishment of slavery just kinda happened. but slaves were used in factories in the north so both sides were slave users. Also note the disclaimer I put just in case I got more stuff wrong, because everyone gets stuff wrong.
    • Jarr2003
      Jarr2003
      @Drago Sources, please? Slavery was very much the cause of the civil war. While there were some states technically in the north (as in, not in the Confederacy) that hadn't banned slavery by the time the civil war began, such as Maryland, a large portion of them had (some had it banned from the day they were officially made states, even). The south, due to it's long reliance on slavery, began to consider slavery part of their way of life, even if only one third of the southern population actually owned slaves. As the abolitionist movement in the north grew, the south began to grow nervous at the risk of a republican or abolitionist gaining power (republicans were liberal back then, surprisingly enough) and attempting to ban slavery. When Lincoln won the election, South Carolina decided to seceed from the U.S fearing he would ban slavery (Lincoln was actually aiming to maintain the union as much as possible, however, so he was planning on either maintaining slavery's legalization, or ban it completely). Technically, the civil war started because the U.S wanted to bring the confederate states back under it's control, but Lincoln decided to officially free the slaves as well.

      Granted, if you have good sources saying otherwise, feel free to post them.
    • TheKnifer

      @Jarr, According to the official documents of secession, only about 5 of the states really fought due to slavery, with an additional 2 that implied it was over slavery. 6 of them fought over state's rights, with an additional 1 implied, North Carolina and Louisiana fought the civil war for No reason, similar to Arkansas, they had a reason but it wasn't anything mainstream. Tennessee refused to say why they joined. However, it was mostly over States rights, slavery was something secondary. (The deep south specifically fought over states rights, while slavery was more implied as a reason rather than a straight yes.) Also, even the Robert E. Lee said that if he could have, he would have freed the slaves. (He fought the war for loyalty to his state.) My source for his quote is from the Smithsonian.
    • Jarr2003
      Jarr2003
      @Knifer One could argue that the "states rights" they mentioned were directly because they wanted control of slavery, rather than the government being in control of it. While I can't say I know enough about the civil war to say this with certainty, but I'd assume that due to the south's insistence that slavery was part of their way of life, it's possible that this eventually expanded to the fear of the union removing (what they considered) other parts of their culture. Besides, just because a lot of Confederate states said they weren't seceding because of slavery, doesn't mean that was truthful. The soldiers had their own beliefs as well, and even if many of them fought due to honor and loyalty to their state, there were certainly some that were fighting purely to defend slavery, whether they admitted it or not.

      BTW, could you link that quote? I tried searching for it but I couldn't find it.

    I was bored, so I drew a circle and put 48 dots on it (you could do it with any number, 48 was just easier to draw)
    For absolutely no reason at all I numbered all these dots: 0, 1, 2, 3... 46, 47, 48 (which is also 0), 49 (which is also 1)...
    And then for some bizzarre reason I just felt like connecting the dots in a times 2 fashion: 1 with 2, 3 with 6, 8 with 16, 13 with 26...
    Well, would you look at what I just ended up with... I guess you could say that "only 2 truly ♥s math"

  • Today, for the first time in.... like... a couple years I guess, I learned something in MatPat's Game Theory show.
    Cephalopods handle RNA differently from us. While I'm not really surprized that two evolutionary-foreign species have different RNA handling, the way it differs here is actually very interesting, making these creatures even more interesting than they already were (and they were top one most biologically interesting species for me already)
    I'm... gonna have to ask how RNA editing could affect the squid's evolution, since it's... RNA and not.. you know... DNA mutations... which are.... evolution...
    I mean granted RNA editing would mean like, proteins on demand and shit, but not actual mutations and therefore inheritable genes and shit.
