I finally got a device capable of rendering advanced 3D graphics (a PS4) so I've been getting into Overwatch. I've just hit Level 25, and at this point my most played characters are Pharah, D.Va, and...
I heard that Deadly Fork was bad, but it looked alright to me. Then I played it.
Latest craft is Captain Greenskin to complete my Pirate Rogue deck. Wild ofc -- need those Ship's...
Australia's gulags are shameful, but the most concerning aspect of our national terror regime is how it operates under the cover of darkness. Journalists are denied access to Naaru and to the gulags....
Yeah we are pretty shit really.
Here's a good documentary I saw recently. The primary figure in the film has since passed away, but his family have given permission for it to continue to be...

Oops, I probably should've made sure to actually link the article in question. The excerpt is perhaps slightly misleading in isolation. But it has Trump and Corbyn in the same paragraph!

Glenn Greenwald's post-Brexist jeremiad is still the best articulation of the phenomenon sweeping politics around the globe that I've seen:

On the previously discussed subject of Trump as the "masculine" candidate who appeals to certain voters for that reason, here's Clint Eastwood:
Of course Clint Eastwood is himself (and through...

Maybe, I haven't seen much of Trump beyond short news snippets. But there is certainly a constituency out there that perceives Obama as weak, effeminate, and unwilling to stand up for America (either...

Anecdotally there's a lot of grudging respect for Putin out amongst the Republican "base" (i.e. the people who gave us Trump) in the sense that Putin is the sort of leader they want for America....

Propaganda has its own reality.

You notice these guys are all ex-military? It makes sense: you train these people to kill "the enemy" and then they start looking around and wondering just who the real enemy is.

Why not get a phone that supports dual SIMs and save lugging around a second device?
Which is precisely why I could not envision leaving my phone off. When I want to do something with my ...

Not sure why this would qualify as hell in a handbasket. The military has staged several coups before without affecting the nation's relations with NATO or anyone else for that matter.
Don't look now, but the Turkish military is staging a coup.
Whether that qualifies as a political system "going wrong" or otherwise is, I suspect, in the eye of the beholder -- it certainly isn't...
The sad thing is that Nintendo probably allocated more resources to this project than to Pokemon Go.
The article won't load for me but from the comments here it sounds like the "CCW holder" was looking for an excuse to shoot someone and took the opportunity. Seems to be a recurring phenomenon...
I have recently acquired an Android phone, and although it is not nearly as elegant as Windows Phone, it does offer me the chance to play Hearthstone in mobile form.
I'm rather impressed by how...

Is the fact that he was killed by a 'robot' really a big deal for Americans? All the talk I've read is about race, guns, and policing.
Frankly it seems pretty tangential to me as well. Although I...

Whoops, I forgot to include a link to the article, which includes rather more words than I quoted.
That's interesting, as I actually feel we are closer in political terms to the UK than the...

Not that anyone cares, but Waleed Aly does a good job of articulating the ideological currents (if not their material foundations) underlying the eminently unsatisfying (and still unresolved) results...

She may or may not be a Sith Lord, but she is a woman, which is enough for some people.
The failure of modern progressivism is written right there.

A predictable and necessary development. In order to bring about real change voters must become increasingly alienated from the establishment and come to recognise their true enemy. George Osborne is...

While the Australian election has been largely uneventful, there are inklings of the same kinds of developments we have seen elsewhere around the world, only in greatly attenuated form owing largely...

And in the process of demonstrating how they can be misused to create ambiguity, you have veered wildly from the structure of what Corbyn actually said. If Corbyn had said that "Jews are Muslims and...
