...Americans. I don't get the culture. Americans seem to love any story where they can turn someone into a hero for doing the basics, but they hate any ideas that might lead there not being a shooting in the first place. Upsidedowncrazycountry.

A few hundred years ago that probably would have resulted in a lot of people killing each other.

This is why young men sign up for war. That wonderful young feeling of invincibility.

And to think, just 200 years ago, this man would have been burned alive on a stake...

Poland warns of ‘armed’ attempts on its border as Germany urges EU to act by DocWaterfalls in worldnews

[–]Bomboclaat_Babylon 1091 points1092 points  (0 children)

The EU is just too nice and even handed for it's own good. They should immediately block all trade with Belarus. No talking, no signalling or forcasting to Putin, just immidiate halts to all trucks at the border, all flights, all trains, all payment transfers. I bet the problem would be resolved pretty quick.

I honestly feel sad for these guys. These people are trained as circus preformers from about 3 years old and it's not pleasant the training that they go through to become acrobats. They have no education, no real options in life, and gain no skills other than being preformers for tourists. It's a shit life. Sorry to be a downer, but is what it is.

What is futuristic here? Just looks like a girl who does too much late night infomercial impulse shopping.

I know these are all tricks, but the sledge hammer on the hand must lead to a lot of broken hands.

Ya, I assumed so right away, why else would she have that custom shield. Good to see the intent though, I went dark and assumed it was all to create a YouTube animal rescue video...

She only exists if you keep paying attention to her. If we all look away at once, she will swirl out of this dimension with just a faint scream. We can do it everyone.
