"I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it" - Evelyn Beatrice Hall, in the book 'The Friends of Voltaire'
Captain Promised Land
Cops be like 'ITS COMING RIGHT AT US!' *BLAM BLAM BLAM*
I can imagine Iron Man saying that like 'Maybe heheh... you need some solid ****... heheh *heavy breathing*'
I imagine there being a terms and conditions reading;
Note: Failure to produce the mandatory minimum of three children will lead to summary mindwipe and/or execution by your local and/or regional Commissar. Rubberium Condomnus to be used only in the case that three children have already been produced. Remember, a large family is a productive family and a productive family is favoured by the Emperor.
After all, you gotta maintain constant levels of cannon fodder.

3: My comment was saying that your parody was so good that it justifies Australia's entire formation and existence during and after the British Empire
That is literally justification enough for the British Empire to have created Australia.
Hey Drunken Peasants?
I personally like taking a label. So that I can smash the stereotypes people project onto me.
Unless they're true.
Clearly Hitler. Stalin might have had a higher body count, but he was a filthy Slav.
On a serious note; I like Hitchens for his blunt way of doing things while I like Dawkins because I'm also into Biology so I like to hear his input in the subject.
Not charging a monthly fee would be a good start.
Got to admit that Tesla has one glorious haircut.
In this story, the Russians armed the NK military to offset the Chinese. The whole Wargame series is based off of a book about the Cold War going hot
Yeah, just look at the Americans, kings of friendly fire.
There can never be too much Dakka.
My country signed the Budapest memorandum and is famous for getting involved in the two biggest wars in human history over a treaty and a guarantee. PLEASE NOT AGAIN.
On a serious note, Putin should get the hell out of Ukraine. If just for the sake of Russian nationals abroad. A student in my school from Russia is being threatened with attacks and being forced out of his home because everyone's ****** at Russia risking war over the Crimea. He should also get out because, you know, sovereign nation that hasn't attacked him. Kind of means he's the aggressor. At least Saddam was gassing Kurdish and Turkish minorities and invaded Kuwait giving the USA and NATO countries a reason to get involved.
'Twas a joke my dear friend,
Meant to lighten the mood,
To ensure a debate with no end,
And provide us all some brain food
You're just walking along when suddenly BANG. You look at the wrong QR code. Your view is being blocked by adverts for porn, ***** enlargement and cactus growth classes. You avert your gaze, only to realise that you've accidentally downloaded a Trojan. Suddenly, and not of your own volition, you begin to spout out addresses, credit card details and throwing the contents of your wallet out to passers by.
That would suck.
I wouldn't mind trying it if it weren't for the monthly fees. That's my problem with MMOs. They can be great, as I feel this would be, but any mention of monthly fees instead of one-time payment? It can get fuc*ked.
*vomits* Its beautiful!
My Cromwell (old Rover painted khaki) high fives your tiger. Please don't kill it.
In the virtual world; I dislike censorship in general. Freedom of speech exists for a reason. However there are some cases in which censorship, in my opinion, is okay. Say, the removal of a site that actively recruits terrorists or to display and share child porn. You know, obviously asshat things. Of course, by this I don't mean shut down a site because one or two people do this, I mean those sites which are created for the sole purpose of these.
In the physical world; I don't believe in any kind of censorship. If some giant pile of faecal matter wants to spout racism, idiotic ideas or try to incite a riot then let them because there will be someone who is equally opinionated in the opposite direction who will counter them. Of course, complete free speech would also make the general public aware as to how many twits exist in the world as they don't have to hide their opinion.
Kind of hard to fit my opinions here but I've done my best.
Operation Seelöwe, here I come!
In some cases yes. But as Elf said, the French revolution was taken to far. A pact between the middle and upper classes to overthrow the ruling class became a 'You're well off so you must die.' fest. The Russian revolution of 1905 led to nothing but repression while the later two in 1917 led to a useless government and then a communist government that was hijacked into a dictatorship. Generally, revolutions tend to replace an old system with a carbon copy save for names and flags.

Words fail me.
I would favour courts over mob rule. Remember, mob law brought us such things as lynch mobs and witch trials. Often with mob law, what the mob says, goes regardless of evidence. However, I do believe that the public should have some input on court proceedings. For example, that Texas scum child who ran over four people but got away with it because of 'affluenza', public outrage and opinion, in my view, should lead to his sentence being changed. That said, it should only really have an impact on cases where there is no doubt that an individual committed a crime, as in this case, as it would help prevent the rich slithering out of prison sentences. In cases where valid evidence is provided on both sides, the public can have a view point but the facts will decide the outcome.

Referring to the picture; I was an atheist before I'd even heard of Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and the 'Youtube Greats' of the Amazing Atheist and Thunderf00t. The first I've heard of Sam Harris and Daniel Dennett is right now. I don't know if that's the case for every atheist, but definitely for me.
America is officially a secular state (though religion does have an impact on politics) while the UK is classed as ambiguous as in religion play no official role in the state save for traditional ceremony. Therefore those examples are rather null.
Just to add; religion was seen as a symbol of the old and widely disliked Russian Empire, hence why it wasn't quite as effective a method of rallying the people.
Only someone whose argument is collapsing brings up the race card.
Kinect is generally hated, its always on and collects info the government can use, there are restrictions on games that are borrowed and pre owned games due to account registration and they were talking about using kinect to block the use of games if it detected multiple people in the room. Yep, Sony simply needs to advertise with 'Playstation 4; not the Xbox one' and they'll snatch a whole generation, take a few off for the Nintendo supporters.
Assad may not be perfect, but he's far better than the other option. The lesser of two evils is Assad, in this case, it seems.
Some people just cannot take a joke.
Slovaks, Croats and possibly Romanians and Bulgarians. The Romanians and Bulgarians depend on the exact time period that you're going for. Then again, why not use some 'artistic license'?
Scaling down units? Heavy risk, but the prize.
It's a thoroughly modern tank. No need to hide oneself as in the past.
There is a bitter truth to that.
B... I... H... Words fail me damn it!
No Kaiser Tiger is 'Emperor Tiger'.
Nice idea, but will it blend? That is the question.
Gondor helmets were inspired by elven helmets according to my lotr nut friend. Don't know if it is true though.
Stunning absolutely stunning
they look excellent :D
doesn't gadraught mean infantry? (if my memory is correct)
Jaw problems again.
This confuses me?
Broadsides? Those are for the empire aren't they? Perhaps the cis have developed a time machine and are stealing tech from the empire! Damn their scientists...
It just got better.
What the fuuuuu...
Well the party was today (instead of on Halloween day). There was a guy dressed as a Cadian, 2 Krieg guardsmen and a variety of people with clothing relating to their favourite marine chapters (hoodie with chapter logo print etc). I went up to those marine fans and told them that they are disappointments to their spiritual liege. There was some giggling from the store staff as I was slapped by a copy of the Space Wolves Codex.
Other than that, the Emperor blessed us with copious amounts of sweets and sixes. I may also have ripped some of the books I stuck to myself. Turns out that books aren't meant for flexibility or mobility.
*vomits* Its not that bad really. *looks again* *vomits*
I might do that AND strap copies of the Space(Ultra) Marines Codex and the Grey Knights Codex to myself. I could just walk around and be like:
'Your spiritual liege has arrived.'
There's a Halloween costume party at my local Games Workshop. I'm thinking of going as a civilian. As in wearing my normal clothes. My plainest normal clothes. Like plain grey or brown shirts.
Ok I'm too lazy/poor to make a costume.
'Don't worry kiddo, I'll be home soon. If not, you know that you can find me by the Emperor's side.'
I'm at University and can confirm that this is 100% true.
Back in the day, in my ancestral homeland of Hungary, its industry and economy was stripped, its independence crushed by an occupying force, thousands were killed or deported during this time (most without trial) and my Grandfather was forced to flee after a failed revolution. To add insult to injury, after gaining independence, the Russians demand several billion dollars to pay for 'infrastructure'. In particular, military bases that are deemed 'below the minimum requirements for human use' and that have been described as worse than those in Nigeria. For even more salt on the wound, this is backed by a threat that the withdrawal of troops might be delayed by several months if the debt is not paid.
F*ck the USSR.
But what if code was not kill?
I should get an Armourzon account.
*Gets charged by Guardsmen*
A nu cheeki-breeki i v damki!

Poe's law man. Or in this case, Mo's law.
Its funny, I was just reading that on 1d4chan. Its almost as if my web browser was specifically set up for me to see that. Would've taken some kind of tactical geniu- CREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED!
The Emperor awakes from his dream, a single tear drops from his face and splashes upon the Golden Throne. He thinks to himself:
'I KNEW IT! THE RED ONES DO GO FASTER!'
Bagcat: One strike is all I need
The Leclerc is not shy, simply preparing to flee in case the battle turns against him.
I WAS NOT PREPARED. CANNOT UNSEE. BY THE FLYING SPAGHETTI MONSTER, SAUCE UPON HIM, IT BURNS! *claws out eyes*

Just, I dunno, link it in a comment with a warning. I need to see that sh*t man.

I always love how the Scots complain about the rest of the UK. Even though Scottish MPs get to make decisions about England and English MPs don't get to make decisions about Scotland unless its a national decision that affects everyone.
Russia reminds me of the Ottoman Empire around WW1. It was the weakest of all the Empires but it was still a force to be reckoned with. It had little power projection outside of its sphere of influence and control, but the power it did have was fairly substantial.
I would say that Russia is more powerful than that. Maybe more close to Austria-Hungary. Definitely not the weakest, but definitely not the strongest either and it lacked the ability to project its power globally in any serious manner, though its control in a local area was significant.
Because they wouldn't be able to afford free prescriptions and University (amongst other things) without the extra £2 billion they have spent on them, sourced from the rest of the UK?
I dunno, but a simple solution is to positive karma everything that's been trolled.
That is of course temporary.
We must utilise a specific set of skills. We don't know who is doing this. But we will find them, and we will kill them.
