Holy shit that blog is late and gay. This happened a year ago. Well, it was reported a year ago. It happened in 2017.

There's not a fail-safe sensor system that prevents the submarine from diving if the hatches aren't closed?
....

2.9$ Billion seems a bit much for that kind of functionality. Didn't they know that Pajeet would be too busy looking for open bog and vagene on his smart-phone to pay attention to this?
There was, but the software that performed the check was stolen snippits of javascript from git.

There's no streets out there in the big blue.
Oh god imagine being on your honeymoon in some tropical paradise in the indian ocean, swimming naked in the clear warm waters with your new wife....only for a vast cloud of thick brown shit smelling slurry to rise up around you from the deeps, and a giant periscope to emerge in front of you and head directly in your naked wife's direction, as from far below you can hear the sound of two hundred indians screaming in horny glee

how are indians so incompetent, at everything? maybe just maybe there was a reason they where under foreign rule for centuries.
Try beating one of the little fuckers at chess. I don't know why but every time I load up an online match against Pajeet he starts doing some shit that even my software's analysis engine is confused by.

And yes, they do try to find out my gender and if I troll and claim I'm a woman they ask for open bob and vagene.

And yeah, fake rape accusations overall are super rare, and only done by a tiny handful of women. Let's not be spergs and blame all women for the actions of a tiny few, just like with rapist men being a tiny minority of men...
Rape accusations are on the whole on par with other false accusations of crimes. They're not immensely common but they aren't particularly rare either. A virtue signaling law like this is useless when there's already a law against false accusations in general, so why would they need another law when they're apparently not enforcing the one that already exists?

This is still better than my first assumption after reading the headline, which is that they literally lost the sub because the one guy on watch at the dock didn't tie the mooring line tight enough and then took a nap or something.

Easing gun laws in Brazil had helped local gunmaker. Some countries should follow Brazil example despite what David Hogg preach.

SAO PAULO (REUTERS) - Shares in Brazilian gunmaker Taurus Armas SA surged on Wednesday, the day after President Jair Bolsonaro signed a decree to ease restrictions on gun imports and increase the amount of ammunition a person can buy.
Taurus stock surged 21 percent to 4.5 reais.
An earlier executive order signed by Bolsonaro had eased restrictions for collectors, marksmen and hunters, for example allowing them to carry loaded guns to shooting clubs.
The latest decree was expanded to lift a ban on imported arms if there was a similar domestic-made product. Taurus has a factory in Miami and may benefit from imports too.

Tuesday's decree raised a limit on ammunition purchases to 5,000 cartridges per year for normal guns. The previous cap was 50 cartridges per year for the average citizen, with discretionary limits for soldiers, police, hunters and some other categories left to the Brazilian military.
The decree also allows for up to 1,000 cartridges to be bought annually for use in restricted weapons, including large-caliber and semiautomatic weapons that are limited to military and police.
Taurus called the order a "milestone," and said it "could significantly increase the demand for firearms by hunters, shooters and collectors (CACs) and law-abiding citizens for their self-defense and defense of their property."
It added that it was "poised to meet any increase in demand."

When a literally trash fire is set ablaze next to a metaphorical trash fire.

OTTAWA — Emergency crews were working to clear the scene early Thursday morning after a dumpster fire erupted on Parliament Hill.
Ottawa Fire Services said on Twitter it had responded to a “very small incident” just west of Centre Block on the parliamentary grounds. The fire broke out in a dumpster on a construction site where crews are working to renovate Centre Block, a massive project that is scheduled to take a decade to complete.
WATCH: construction crews get apparent dumpster fire under control on Parliament Hill. https://t.co/egDyGml72s
Michel Boyer (@BoyerMichel) May 09, 2019
The fire was not expected to conflict with any proceedings Thursday in the temporary West Block home of the House of Commons, where opposition Members of Parliament are expected to put questions to the government about SNC-Lavalin, Canada’s deteriorating relationship with China and the recent decision by federal prosecutors to drop a criminal charge against Vice-Admiral Mark Norman, who had been accused of leaking confidential information.
Ottawa Fire responded with a single pumper truck and the blaze was put out at 9:23 a.m.. A department spokesman said its cause was undetermined, but not suspicious.
A spokesman for Parliamentary Protective Services confirmed the fire was under control, but could not comment on whether specific protocols are in place to avoid future incidents. He could not immediately say whether other dumpster fires had afflicted Parliament Hill in recent memory.

Why Vegeta is a Better Father than Goku
Alternate title: Suck it, Kakarot.

The Dragon Ball Super: Broly anime comic adaptation is now out overseas. Aside from some eye-catching (and colorful!) artwork recreating the Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie experience on the page, the anime comic has the added appeal of a bonus Q&A withDragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama!

Out of the all of the interesting insights that Toriyama shared for this Q&A, the one that seems to be resonating the most with fans is no doubt the conversation about Saiyan parenting technique, and how it relates to Goku and Vegeta in this Dragon Ball Super era.

Here's the quote from Toriyama, regarding why Saiyans may struggle to be good fathers:

"Innately, Saiyans place emphasis on increasing the number of strong people in their race, so bonds between parent and child aren't all that strong. King Vegeta and Paragus aim to use their sons to fulfill their own pride and ambitions, respectively, while Bardock, unusually for a Saiyan and more similarly to Earthlings, seems to have just a bit of fondness for his son. Come to think ot it, Goku doesn't seem to think about his children all that much."

The moderator of the Q&A then describes how this topic slide into side-conversation, in which Toriyama addresses why Vegeta has, surprisingly, become a doting and caring father. In Toriyama's assessment, It is the presence of Bulma in Vegeta's life that has made all the difference.

That's a fair point to make - especially when comparing Vegeta's parenting to Goku's. Chi-Chi is a duitful wife and mother for sure, but she's also a hardcore dragon lady. Forcing Goku to be affectionate is definitely not on Chi-Chi's agenda - nor is looking glam or sexy to keep things spicy with her man. Bulma is the exact opposite: Dragon Ball Super: Brolyreveals that she's gone so far as to use the Dragon Balls to de-age herself every so often, so that she can still look fit and fine as she ages. Dragon Ball Super has certainly snuck in the hints that she and Vegeta still have a spicy love life, and the Saiyan prince's appreciation of his wife and kids fueled him to his greatest power-up yet in the Tournament of Power.

The responsibility for a Saiyan's family ties doesn't just rest on the kind of wife he has, though. Bardock made his own choice to love his son Kakarot enough to send him away (and therein saved the universe). Perhaps Goku just needs to pay closer attention to how the other Saiyan dads around him are doing things...

Alyssa Milano Calls for “Sex Strike”
Former Charmed actress Alyssa Milano called for a sex strike claiming that “our reproductive rights are being erased.”

Milano took to Twitter, where she wrote, “Our reproductive rights are being erased. Until women have legal control over our own bodies we just cannot risk pregnancy. JOIN ME by not having sex until we get bodily autonomy back. I’m calling for a #SexStrike. Pass it on.”

Milano’s tweet was openly mocked by many.

[Krimjob Note: Find the reply tweets on the original article linked above, just way to much shit to include in raw text]

Milano’s call for a sex strike comes after Georgia governor Brian Kemp signed the pro-life heartbeat bill. Before signing the bill, Kemp stated, “Georgia is a state that values life. We stand up for those who are unable to speak for themselves.” He added, “But our job is to do what is right, not what is easy. We will not back down. We will always continue to fight for life.”

The bill reads in part:

“It shall be the policy of the State of Georgia to recognize the presence of a fetal heartbeat as the point of “fetal viability,” creating a compelling state interest to protect “the independent essence of the second life” as an “object of state protection” from abortion; and

It shall be the policy of the State of Georgia to recognize unborn children as natural persons.”

Westworld actress Evan Rachel Wood would call for “mandatory vasectomies” until men are ready to have children in response to the bill being signed.

Milano had been actively campaigning against the bill. In fact, she lead a number of celebrities in calling for Hollywood film studios to boycott the entire state of Georgia if the bill was signed into law. Some of those celebrities included Avengers: Endgame actors Mark Ruffalo, Don Cheadle, and Tessa Thompson.

In an open letter calling for Hollywood to boycott Georgia, Milano described the bill as “evil.”

“We can’t imagine being elected officials who had to say to their constituents ‘I enacted a law that was so evil, it chased billions of dollars out of our state’s economy.”

Hollywood does a ton of business in Georgia. Atlanta-based AJC reports in Fiscal Year 2018 there were 455 productions that did “$2.7 billion in direct spending.” They noted this was the most productions “since the tax credits were passed in 2008.”

Georgia provides film and TV productions with up to a 30 percent tax credit if they spend at least $500,000 in the state.

The Walking Dead, Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther, Avengers: Endgame, Ozark, and more all have or had a production home in Georgia.

What do you make of Alyssa Milano’s call for a sex strike? Do you think it is a good idea?

news.sky.com/story/amp/royal-mail-investigates-fake-diane-abbott-stamps-11716853

Royal Mail is investigating fake stamps featuring Diane Abbott's face which are apparently making their way through the postal network.

An anonymous man claiming to be a London postman shared images of the red stamps - one of which was franked - with several news outlets.

It comes after Abbott, MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington, became an internet sensation after she was seen sipping a canned mojito on a London tube train last month.

The Labour shadow home secretary later apologised for enjoying the alcoholic beverage on public transport.

The anonymous postie said the fake stamps were probably a "lighthearted stunt" despite it being a serious offence to send them.

They told the Hackney Gazette: "I have spotted what apparently nobody else has... there's a Diane Abbott stamp making it through the mail.

"Obviously it's a serious offence to send fraudulent stamps through the mail, though I feel this might be a lighthearted stunt."

But Royal Mail has said it is looking into the counterfeit stamps and is hoping to prosecute those behind them.

A spokesperson said: "It is a crime to create or use counterfeit stamps. Royal Mail takes the necessary steps to protect stamp revenues which help fund the universal postal service which serves the UK's 30 million households and businesses.

"We will seek to prosecute where we find someone has created counterfeit stamps or knowingly sold used stamps for re-use. This matter is being investigated by our security team."

Sky News has contacted Ms Abbott for comment.

I don't even begin to understand the logic. The moment you hold an aspect of your relationship hostage to a demand like that you are telling the other person random political causes are more important to the relationship.

There are less obnoxious ways to break up with someone...
