Its a derogatory term, though the detainment centers for the japanese in the 40s were about as close as it gets to concentration camps. Wasnt there even experimentation on prisoners?

A detainment facility crosses into the dark territory when children are harmed though, war crimes and all that

Just happy to remind you all of the following:

Particularly the "non-consensual" section as it gives a likely taste of the future.

Add in

For fun and I think you can see where you're headed in the mid-term. Then it'll start getting really fucked up.

Making a prediction: When this is all said and done and the US not a glass parking lot (I know, even odds there) with Trump no longer in office, there will be a cry from both sides that we must "move on as a country, together" and not bother with prosecutions or investigations for the sake of "unity" and "not dredging up old stories" because they would "upset people".  There will be a tepid outcry from the farther Left, and then nothing will be done for at least 20 years, until the responsible parties are dead.

You may be right on the Federal level. However, I suspect things will go much differently on the State level.

Future President Pence, if he escapes Comrade Spanky’s ouster, will probably pardon Spanky and most of his gang. But, Comrade Spanky and His Gang™ are a real white-collar crime family. I don’t believe the Blue States, where they committed many of their crimes, are going to be so forgiving. And, that will make it much harder to sweep the whole sordid mess under the rug on the Federal level.

I suspect any pardons handed out by future President Pence, or whoever, will quickly be challenged in the US Supreme Court by a number of Blue States, and other powerful organizations. And, I sincerely doubt the US Supreme Court, even as politically biased as it is, will uphold those Presidential pardons.

They don't have a say.  The power of the president to pardon at the federal level is absolute.

Even when the pardoner is a co-conspirator? Pence is into obstruction of justice up to his eyeballs.

So, who comes after Pence, another Republicultist™ in the spirit of Nelson Rockefeller? Or, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, who may not be Lyin’ Paul Ryan after the November elections?

I don't believe it's that simple.

Whether or not the president can outright pardon himself is very much in question.  Anyone else he can pardon...The only check on this is that he can't sell a pardon.

Anyone taking bets on when tangerine scream is going to pull that exact move? Assuming he hasn't already.

Christ, I shouldn't drink, it makes me a mopey SOB. What set me off as well was I got a call from the army (Greek) saying I need to do my service, of which I responded with "yeah, no, I'm not doing that", they basically said I can't go back to Greece without being picked up and drafted into basic training.
I wasn't planning on going back any time soon, but it still bummed me out.

Getting kicked out of an army is a life experience. Why are you depriving yourself? If you last more than a couple of days pull a Shawn Nelson and you'll be out in no time.

It is, and yes, I'm not sure how well Bethesda will handle that.  ESO did give us some new Khajiti lore which wasn't entirely terrible, and could figure into a game plot quite easily...but I'm not sure how well Bethesda will handle a non-human, non-mer centered game.  Personally I think Valenwood would've been boring, possibly after spending hours grinding my way through those zones in ESO and wanting to die every step of the way, but between the well established lore, the lack of VA issues and the potential for a Thalmor-Empire proxy war, it seemed like an obvious option.  Same for Hammerfell, only even more so.

It's also possible I'm completely wrong.  I shied away from it being Summerset Isle because of the mountains and arid landscape, but a lot can change in a thousand years, and Summerset was hit hard by the Oblivion Crisis.  Equally, it could be the coast of Valenwood...but I think if it were they would focus far more heavily on the forest theme.  I mean, the game's Valenwood, so gotta show the woods themselves, right?, if it was the Craglorn region, maybe, as there are some quite fertile areas around there, it does actually strongly remind me of the region around Dragonstar, but it's landlocked.   Doesn't look at all like High Rock, I very much doubt they'd go back to could maybe be Black Marsh, as we don't really see the coastal regions of it in ESO, only the northern region of Stormhold, on the Morrowind border. 

Or maybe they're actually going to break with tradition and do something genuinely new with TESVI.  Yokuda, Atmora, Thras...Akavir?  I highly doubt it, but anything's possible.

So yeah, my guesses in order of preference are Elseweyr, Black Marsh and Valenwood.  One thing they did say is that they were waiting for the technology to make certain things possible that they wanted to do with TESVI, which I think had everyone thinking Valenwood (walking tree cities).  But maybe they wanted it for something else.

Akavir would be a fantastic setting but there is no fucking way that they'll risk a AAA budget on it.

Half a euro on Black Marsh, seem to remember something about a domain being registered that implied that, which was how Skyrim was initially confirmed.

Thinly veiled Blatant threats?

This ends with EOC explaining to idiot that he's in mexico.

He's probably going to be doing that from an adjacent cell, which is the bad news for him.

There is no good news.

I am actually rooting for one of these to finally get past the technical issues so I can enjoy watching it fail due to its flawed philosophical issues.

It'll be fascinating to watch. What kind of particular hell will it turn into? In how long?

And naturally, like any experiment you need to repeat for reliable results. And change factors.

Why aren't we encouraging every idiot to make this "work"? Kind of win-win all round. They get some kind of randian shitshow and we get the entertainment of the future.

2013 seems like a lifetime ago.

No, 300,000,000 lifetimes actually <cut&run>

That's not even counting the clones.

So, the Houston shooter was a Nazi. 

I am shocked.

What an unusual twist!

What was making me laugh was the byline that was something like "deadliest shooting since feb '18". You fucks can't even manage six months good-ish behaviour.

what about his weird old balls

This feels like there should be a mueller version along the lines of "Are you a bad enough dude to indict the president".

It would literally be just a list of things I was carrying, and/or things I saw at the store arranged so that they would rhyme occasionally.

Maybe if I find some time this weekend....

For inspiration, look up "Howling Willie Cunt - World of filth"

Offensive Country music is an art form.

So much Heresy. The only true answer is this:

Also, not dead. Amusing updates to come when I'm not utterly fucked.
