Also, either start with your mouth open a bit, or bare your teeth.  Otherwise you get this awful SMACK when you start talking.

Byzantine history is not something that was heavily covered by my schooling, in any sense. I say this so you can understand where I am coming from.

I have discovered Procopius’s Anecdota. And I have questions. Many, many questions.

That's the little worm that spent his life following Belisarius around and writing horrible lies about him, right?

2.  Never outnumber Ukrainians.

Never piss off Ukrainians, period. They Do Not GAF.

That's like something out of Munchkin

Tina:  "So Shiny New War Crime™ isn't really an accurate name for the project."

Me:  "Why not?"

Tina:  "It's shiny and it's new but I checked and it's apparently not against any of the international conventions."

Me:  "That's because nobody ever thought they'd need a rule about this.  The first time it gets used, it gets outlawed. Also, Shiny New War Crime™ is the name of the working group, not this project, as of today."

Tina:  "Why?"

Me:  "The money people get worried about names like that."

Tina:  "Okay, so what is the project name now?"

Me:  "500 Kg of Disproportionate Response."

Sideways Dave:  *GRIN*

Tina:  "I like it.  But how do we know it will be disproportionate?"

Me:  "Because this is to thermobaric weapons what thermobaric weapons were to a hand grenade. Unless you're using WMDs in general, this is disproportionate."

Tina:  "You finally didn't lie to us.  We ARE doing Great Things to people."

Me:  "There are no monsters here.  Back to work."

This is a work in progress, feel free to add relevant bits.

1.  Never interrupt Americans, because they WILL get in a land war in Asia.
2.  Never outnumber Ukrainians.
3.  See that Yemeni shitting into the commander's hatch of your shiny M1A2?  That's as close as you're gonna get to an offer of armistice.
4.  Human wave attacks aren't what they used to be.
5.  Everything you spent the last century learning about war is now wrong.
6.  It's not about the money now.  Now it's about spite and ancient butthurt on the part of anyone.
7.  Never tell an Armenian or an Azerbajani to be patient.
8.  Never assume that Chechnya is on anyone's side.  Even their own.
9.  Weapons are not made for wars, wars are made for weapons.
10.  Scholz is a punk.

More to follow.

/reserves everything.

Hey did you all know that the limbic system - the emotional brain of the mind - is the portal to the Brahman, which is the quantum, which is God, or 'might as well be'?

And if you destroy your own limbic system, you can force the download of a kundalini backup, complete with Goddess manifestations, quantum cognitive function, and uhhhhh...other...things?  Like, cats like you extra, now?  That's the best powerup.

I'm not sure why I'm posting this if I'm just going to talk to myself again, but you know sometimes I have some great things to say so why not.

Oui, has anyone seen the Kalki's white horse laying around?  Fucking thing where is it...

I hope all of me is having a lovely evening out there.

oh no no no

if my Limbus system is God, then god truly is an ad obsessed crazy woman

which would explain why she revealed herself to Lord Omar while he was watching TV, and then vanished into an aspirin commercial

She's right, you know.  We exist only to knock people out of satori, in our efforts to placate the fiendish Cramulus.

Old Dok Howl is a master of lin-ji's fly whisk, but in modern times its been reincarnated as a cinderblock with a pipe sticking out of it. If he whacks you in the back of your head while you're meditating, hold the fuck on to your eyeballs.

I think the point of the schroedinger's cat experiment is that it helped Schroedinger explain to everybody why they needed to lay off the physics.

"ThE CaT ExISts aND DOes NOT ExiST UNTIL ITS eigenstaTe is OBSERVEd"

these are the thoughts of the utterly deranged

BALLS!   :argh!:  If the math says it's indeterminate, it's fucking well indeterminate!

Apologies yeah I was reading a more reactionary take on it,Canada is gradually becoming more and more right wing and yes did wipe out the indigenous people. In some ways they have even been worse than the US in confronting thier history on that.
Gonna argue that.  Most Americans still believe the Native Americans were finally happy when we put them on reservations.

Canada took a long time to examine what they've done, but afterwards don't seem to try to excuse it.

Give me back my drugs.   :lulz:

Nobody wants me being a divinity.  HO HO!  No.

I mean, the very first thing I'm gonna do is give everyone a crippling case of jock itch.  Then it's the 20 ft tall radioactive lizards.

And that's before my first coffee on day one.

Why did I read the comments?

This enactment amends the Criminal Code to, among other things,

(a) repeal the provision that requires a person’s natural death be reasonably foreseeable in order for them to be eligible for medical assistance in dying;

(b) specify that persons whose sole underlying medical condition is a mental illness are not eligible for medical assistance in dying;

(c) create two sets of safeguards that must be respected before medical assistance in dying may be provided to a person, the application of which depends on whether the person’s natural death is reasonably foreseeable;

(d) permit medical assistance in dying to be provided to a person who has been found eligible to receive it, whose natural death is reasonably foreseeable and who has lost the capacity to consent before medical assistance in dying is provided, on the basis of a prior agreement they entered into with the medical practitioner or nurse practitioner; and

(e) permit medical assistance in dying to be provided to a person who has lost the capacity to consent to it as a result of the self-administration of a substance that was provided to them under the provisions governing medical assistance in dying in order to cause their own death.

Further down, it specifies conditions that eliminate involuntary termination, and institutes penalties for medical personnel that violate the bill.

I don't know about Global News to be fair, but I don't think the bias outweighs the quotes from advocates. Even if we assume the people interviewed are lying, and there's a lot of them beyond those two articles, disability advocate groups do seem fairly united in their criticism from what I can see?

Have you looked at the actual text of the law as it is and the proposed expansion?
