I had heard a rumor that Scotland might have a separate referendum to remain in the EU but perhaps not in the UK, is that true?

Everything is rumours right now.

The SNP, the Scottish Nationalists, have said before now though that if Scotland votes overwhelmingly to remain (and it did) but the UK votes to leave, then it will "have to examine all options".

We just opened a massive fucking can of worms, that may lead to the dissolution of the UK as a political entity.

Trump was actually in favour of Brexit.  Yet another reason he cannot be trusted as President.  He thinks the UK hosing itself and possibly the rest of the EU with it is a reasonable outcome.

You think after seeing what it's done to his precious money, he won't change his mind? Man's been waffling as much as maple tappers.

At least the British are still as humorous as ever. Better laugh until you cry.

I'm back-ish. Mostly came back  to read things now that I'm out of school and a professional bum again.

Here's some reason thread-jacks from motherfucking Byzantium.  The first is the physical component of my master's thesis, where I went into the inventory of an 11th Century patrician woman and recreated some of her garments based on extant artwork. It took translation from Middle Greek, but fuck you: Orange. That's one of the icons I'm done as well. St. Lucia (Loukia) of Syracuse. The most recent one I've done of the Archangel Gabriel was fucking killer, but anyways, pics.

And this is a 12th Century Byzantine ensemble based on the Eisiterion of Agnes of France from 1179. It's a story of how a 9 year old princess from France came to Constantinople and married the emperor, complete with Byzantine side-eye from the empress. I shit you not, it's fucking glorious. I want to take the image of the side-eyeing empress, transform it into a banner tattoo that says, "Byz, please!"



Oh, and the side-eye, the whole thing is kind of terrifyingly pedo, though, even if it was a standard practice:

Brexit is poisonous - and we are going to spread it worldwide like some sort of political ebola.

This could be world-historical bad.  I've been accused of being paranoid, of being a worst-case scenario kind of person.  But I can see the dominoes dropping...a world economic crisis.  The collapse and dissolution of the EU.  Russia, behind the scenes, bankrolling far-right and Eurosceptic parties to drive a wedge between Europe and America.  A political crisis turns to a landgrab in the Baltic states...NATO cannot intervene, not without a year of preparation, and not while increasingly popular, pro-Russian parties denounce American imperialism.

And that's just the European fallout.  The American election...China?  The Middle East?  This is going to have knock-on effects from knock-on effects and when people look back, they'll say "well, you can't blame the British for everything, but they certainly helped get the ball rolling".

And tomorrow, Trump will come on television and tell all the America that he has a plan. A good plan. The best plan to deal with the fallout of Brexit. He has the best guys on it. You'll see.
