We're heading into another Dark Age.
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

“People get used to anything. The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is the normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave.”

Russia's not.

Russia is gonna be awesome in 60+ years.  All global warming is going to do to them is give them more decent farmland.  They don't give a fuck.  And in the meantime, they're just going to go on pumping out oil and gas, undercutting OPEC prices constantly and building up friends in Europe.  If they end up reintegrating the Near Abroad, their demographic decline, which has been overstated anyway, will be reversed entirely in a "Greater Russia" of 230 million, stretching from the Ukraine to central Kazakhstan, and even if they don't the population is still growing at a sustainable rate.  Sure, they'll fuck up eventually, it's Russia, after all, but in the medium term, they're pretty good.
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."
- R. Scott Bakker, The Darkness That Comes Before

In Soviet Russia, victims rape yuo!

Oh my god. :lulz:

Hilariously, me and some friends were just talking about a "Rape back the night" self-defense training course last night, in which participants carry dildoes and learn skills to help them to turn things around on would-be rapists.

I can't see a downside.

Rep Joe Walsh apparently not only can't be bothered to pay child support (it's reported that he's apparently over $100,000 behind in payments), he's got the balls to sue his ex-wife over the case...

If Luna was a furry, she'd sex humans and scream "BEASTIALITY!" at the top of her lungs at inopportune times.

I like the Luna one. She is a good one.

Must be that "personal responsibility" thing he's always on about.   :lulz:

Apparently "personal responsibility" means "if my ex-wife didn't want to pay for kids, she should've kept her legs shut."

ETA:  Huffington Post has a copy of her court filing.  He apparently not only paid only partial child support from November of 2005 to March of 2008, he has failed to pay any at all since then, has failed to pay medical insurance, tuition, and failed to provide tax returns as required.

Bonus!  Joe Walsh apparently can't be bothered to show up for court about this, either...

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/09/14/1016944/-Deadbeat-Congressman-Joe-Walsh-still-not-paying-his-child-support?via=blog_1

Quote
Cook County Circuit Judge Raul Vega also wanted to know why Walsh wasn’t in court for the hearing — the McHenry Republican’s ex-wife, Laura Walsh was — and said he expects him to show up at the next hearing, in November.

Walsh’s new attorney, Janet Boyle, asked Vega “for what purpose” he wanted the congressman in court.

Vega gave her a puzzled look.

To which Boyle responded: “Mr. Walsh is a U.S. congressman.”

“Well, he’s no different than anyone else,” the judge said.
