Bitcoin enthusiasts don't believe him  :lulz:

This is what happens when you cater a product to pathological conspiracy theorists

In the early 1950s, the CIA parachuted former Nazi operatives into Soviet occupied eastern Europe to build resistance movements against Communism.

However, the predecessors to the CIA had recruited Nazi operatives who were already recruited by a Cold War Superpower - namely the Soviet Union.  As such, operations behind the Iron Curtain had a 99% death rate during this period.  Even worse - the records of these Nazi recruits had been purposefully obsfucated, meaning not only did category A war criminals end up escaping justice, the US Justice Department could not even seize the assets they acquired through systematic looting in WWII.  Naturally, the Nazis sympathisers sent to their deaths were the ones who could have testified against them in a court of law.

But that's unfortunately not 140 letters.

That's what everyone else on the internet said.

The US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has been criticised online for live-tweeting the killing of Osama Bin Laden as if it were happening today.

It has shared details of the mission that led to America's most-wanted man being found five years ago in Pakistan.

But reaction has been largely negative, with one Twitter user calling the move "grotesque and embarrassing".

Others posted memes and gifs of people rolling their eyes and putting their heads in their hands.

The CIA's other tweets mostly concern historical trivia and artefacts.

...the CIA is currently re-enacting (via live-tweeting) the assassination of Osama Bin Laden.


Dissertation done, final conclusion and abstract aside.  Both of which can and will be done tonight.  That just leaves the bibliography and proof-read tomorrow before sending it off.

Out of the three, I liked the first one best.  The highlight makes the message stand out very clearly, and is quite eye-catching.

Shaken up obviously, but my father's there and the school has offered counselling.

I'm just hoping that the coroner can do his job and the family can get some closure.  The school is relatively well known, and as the person in the primary care position, she'd be in the firing line if there was any stitch-up (and she has dealt with suicidal students, students on drugs and students with serious mental disorders before, so I don't believe for a minute she didn't exercise due diligence) or if the media felt like it was a slow news day and wanted to cause a clickbait/social media frenzy, as they are sometimes wont to do.

9 mother works as a matron at a boarding school (far away from the one I'm currently at).

At wakeup call this morning, she found one of the students dead.  How was not mentioned to me, but because of the age and sudden nature, there will possibly be an inquest.

After reading approximately 50 billion books on fascism and the far-right, as a political ideology, I feel like I should have much more to say about Trump.

But all I can do is feel vaguely disgusted.  I have a really bad feeling about the next 20 odd years...

I mean, that stuff is pretty fucking cingeworthy on its own.  Especially when Dark Souls manages to actually deliver without the devs (or, more amazingly, most of the player base) being complete douchebags.

Contemporary liberalism's sneering, smug complex has gotten pretty out of control at this stage.  It's pretty well reflected in a lot of online media, when you start to look at it closely.

Seriously.  The two of them, Sanders and Clinton, have something like 93-97% voting parity.  I can understand being a bit more supportive of one over the other, preferences based on style, viability, history, rhetoric...but some of the vitriol that has been thrown around, you'd think some people were convinced their opposing candidate was closer to Trump.  Or Hitler.

He obviously didn't get the latest Labour Party memo - that the J00S are to blame for everything.

Nope, I have a pdf which has apparently been scrubbed of Jewish influence.
