Just waiting on proper details of what Nelson manedlas nephew's axe rampage involved.

No, ive not made that up. It was in his Palace. Apparently he's a king. Who knew?

He's a fun guy. Highlights from Wikipedia:

Quote
In May 2005, he was indicted for fraud, murder, attempted murder, kidnapping and arson at the Mthatha High Court, and was subsequently convicted.

Quote
In July 2014, a group of Thembu chiefs wrote to President Jacob Zuma requesting that Dalindyebo be removed, claiming he was an "evil king" and "not fit to rule".

Quote
Dalindyebo has since been customarily dethroned, and is expected to be administratively dethroned in the near future.The Presidency has now apparently withdrawn his kingship, while no decision has as yet been taken on a replacement. The Dalindyebo family has been evicted from the royal household and Dalindyebo has now been removed from the payroll as King

Quote
According to reports in local newspapers the deposed king arrived at the royal residence, called The Great Place, at 2am on the morning of 13 March 2020 carrying an axe and proceeded to attack the current acting king Azenathi and his wife, who was later hospitalised. In an attempt to escape Azenathi reportedly jumped out of the window of the palace.

Wikipedia was about as far as I got, so now 60 open tabs on shit I have no idea about. It's a system I've never really looked at and as always it seems to be utterly hilarious.

When a paranoid nation built on "you can't tell me what to do" and is drip-thread conspiracy theories about "experts" for 30 years, suddenly gets told it has to do something...

This shit is buck wild. Home invader fights UFC contender for FIVE MINUTES straight and walks out apparently without stealing anything. Five minutes of no holds barred life or death struggle is a LOT.

You can't get out backward.  You have to go forward to go back.. better press on! - Willie Wonka, PBUH

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

"World domination is such an ugly phrase. I prefer to call it world optimisation."

"You program the controller to do the thing, only it doesn't do the thing.  It does something else entirely, or nothing at all.  It's like voting."

Ahem.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-52198946 this article doesn't mention reptoids once. Questionable journalism.
