Elswhere on the internet, there's actually a meme of waifu fighting. Weaboos claim their waifu and exhort her virtues over the other "inferior" waifu, insulting them in any way they can. It makes me sad that I know about it.

Given that I, as probably a few 7chan denizens, know a little bit about how cyber attacks work, when I see the Obama administriation expel 35 russian diplomatic staff and sanction a couple of private individuals and organizations, it spells out something very clearly: they have no fucking idea who is responsble.

They made no economic or digital attempts to prevent further incursions--by anyone's perspective the higher priority.

The sad thing is, I actually believe Russia did attempt to intervene on Trump's behalf--but the Obama administration is too incompetent to figure out how or who actually did what and has chosen the most useless of all possible options: expel all the suspicious Ruskys.

>I'm afraid Trump isn't going to restore my faith in the system.
I don't doubt that for a minute, but consider this: there are people out there so loudly opposed to Trump that they've become primed to automatically take the opposite side of anything and everything he says almost as a gut instinct. That means that there's a chance that since Trump tweeted something critical of many government agencies quite a few folks--perhaps even some of the ones that are historically critical of the FBI, CIA, NSA, et al.--will want to take the side of the whole alphabet soup because it's the side against Trump, no matter what the real issues are.

I'm sure you're far too smart to fall for something like that, but you probably know quite a few people who aren't.

I think I'm just cynical; no one is immune to the level of propaganda we are innundated with in every aspect of our lives.

That's most everyone I know. I rarely meet anyone who consideres two or more sides of things fairly. Most people only consider their self-interests, or adopt the agenda of an influential person or organization as their self-interest, and can only see other points of view as against them.

The real fun comes when people who have been historically opposed to the alphabet soup suddenly become their biggest cheerleaders just because Trump starts supporting them once he's running them. Nothing will meaningfully change at the alphabet soup, mind you, the only difference is the putative figurehead at the top of the pyramid changed. And that alone will be enough for some conspiracy theorists and geriatrics (and some geriatric conspiracy theorists) to suddenly do 180s and believe that government can do no wrong now that a white man is running things.




Earth and Lucia (2132-2218) Anonymous 17/01/20(Fri)02:05 No. 153 ID: 70f084 [Reply]

File 148487435442.png - (169.45KB , 1170x863 , Lucia - 2218 AD (Winter) [Day 43].png )

In 2132 AD, Earth’s population reached an untold 10 billion, overpopulation and nearly drained resources forced one-third of its people to move away out of the Solar System in cryostasis to reach a new world in 55 Cancri named Lucia. Located in the Constellation of Cancer, this lifelike planet is unlike any other Earth-like destination human colonists ever seen like it, not long after their Alpha Centauri discovery.

Given the technology that far surpasses today’s standards, humans living on Lucia perform much better, build structures of illogical design, and dream better than on Earth. It also comes down with a price. Weather patterns on this mythical world are very dynamic and eerie, more intelligent species, various new diseases that can kill in minutes, and an intergalactic spot for invading forces that come and go from all over the galaxy. The time of day seems to move five times quicker than usual, and their orbital year is as short as Mercury. This may indicate that despite the same gravity, eccentricity, and density, it rotates and orbits too fast around its star, baffling astronomers.

The first war took place in 215x AD; some colonists have disputes over the new resources. They cannot be sure exactly where they want to farm, mine, or grow their own due to the exotic properties that change so fast, scientists were mystified. Then, they started fighting one another for territory, but quickly put down violently.
Then, in 216x AD, a second war took place, this time, social issues with the new species that inhabit there. The Lucians and colonists do not agree each other and felt that their visitors have overstayed. The native inhabitants have far better technology, and the people seem to have similar characteristics of every colonists’ favorite creations, particularly with an interest with Eastern cultures. The colonists’ were driven back and evacuated into slip-space for five decades.

In what would be a coronation event for their matriarch named after the planet itself, it yet struck again in the spring of 2203 AD. The invading force was not colonists, but rather Chasers, monsters invented from peoples’ fears that pursue them in their imaginations. They caused minor damage to the Lucians’ home capital, and casualties estimated in the hundreds, but ended in roughly a quarter-hour with a cease-fire to tell the matriarch’s would-be husband, and everyone else living there to not dream indefinitely in exchange for peace. Anyone that died violently is left to wander the White Desert, home to the Monochrome Tribe south of the capital for all eternity.

In the most unexpected turn of events, in Izanagi Retreat, an insomniac man after many years of hardship, kept the promise to see her again only by dreaming in sleep, or so it seems. The king of the Chaser legions in Yerivia to the northwest, psychologically enthralled at the man’s wish he is about to fulfill, launch a direct all Message too long.

Let me make this clear: It is a dream world, anything can happen there, like other planets we create when we fall asleep, whether we like it or not. As for the planet itself being life-like, humans terraformed it the moment they discovered it, thus awakening the native species by the 2140's.

By the 2100's, we might be able to dream much better than this generation, but because of the instability of the planet humanity can bring, that is where all kinds of extraterrestrial species we don't want to invade a colonized planet, but too late.

The planet makes one year roughly equal to that of Mercury, so the change of seasons does not give humans time to have a consistent schedule, resulting in sleep-deprivation on a grand scale, followed by two wars to the point they have to leave everything behind. We may not see them again until around the 2220's to retake it. This story is a history simulator through a presentation that will turn into a non-profit animation that will be released into the public.

Yes, being a colonist with a job in astronomy on a foreign planet can be a big screw up, because Lucia makes one rotation every 4.8 hours, and completes one year in roughly three months. To make things even scarier, there is no moon, so tides can go much higher in case of earthquakes.

I am a lucid dreamer just like my dream people, and I would undoubtedly challenge you personally inside my dream world, 1-on-1. The only time I was killed comes from my only dream that took place 15 years ago by a Chaser army whilst serving the matriarch as a prince. I may be a good storyteller and listener, but the moment I go fight-or-flight mode, it will be settled only in my dreams. I will protect Lucia, the people, and the matriarch with my life. I am the last line of defense between anything evil and the queen. If I fail in my duty, Lucia will be destroyed in the blink of an eye with everything in it, including you, and your fellow Chaser or Dormilian fiends. I am not afraid of violence, but I must preserve my reputation with my chivalry. Next time you dream, you will encounter me there, waiting patiently to start the duel. If I win, you are kicked out for good.

I just hope this soon-to-be animation series will not attract any more “enemies of the planet”, and it will go smoothly.

You have a vivid imagination, but no rhetorical skill. For example, "life-like" does not mean what you think it means and cannot be used to mean what you want it to mean. The planet appears to be alive, or (does things) as though it were animate. Feel free to practice all you want, but I seriously recommend you get this shit out of /civ/.

America was set to free the shit out of syria much like Iraq over alleged chemical weapon attacks on their own civillians (because that's the priority when you're fighting rebels), but Russia stepped in to cockblock Obama by demanding actual evidence that it was Assad who did the attack.

The U.N. sent in people to investigate, and in the end they couldn't prove it was assad, and the blast zone was close enough to rebel territory for rebels to have been the ones reaponsible. An interesting aside, the investigators were shot at by snipers at least once

I’ve been thinking a lot about the meeting between Trump and Obama at the White House, and here’s the thing.

Obama used to be a law professor. This is key.

Law school is so, so different from college.

In college, everyone expects there to be a “syllabus day,” kind of a grace period where they can show up and get the lay of the land, figure out the bare minimum that they can get away with, the TA gives everyone their office hours, there’s an introductory lecture, and everybody leaves a few minutes early to go take a nap or something. You do the bullshit assignments, you say something in class now and then to get your participation check mark, and figure out how badly you can do on the final and still pass.

But see, in law school, all the methodologies you’ve spent the last 17 years operating under go out the window. Day one of law school is you being thrown into the deep end of the pool—you’ve had a homework assignment for two weeks now, and it’s to read the first 200 pages of your casebook. And now it’s you and the teacher (who is usually as smug as Alex Trebek) gauging and assessing what you managed to absorb while you skimmed through all those pages of reading so you could hurry up and get to the other 150 pages of reading for your next period class, in front of 50 people who are all smarter than you. And if you fuck up, or you didn’t do the reading, you are at the mercies of not just the professor, but the silent satisfied judgment of your peers.

Law school is hard, and it will make you feel stupid and tongue-tied and like you don’t know anything and can’t form an argument—because you don’t, and you can’t. Everybody there has had a 4.0 since birth. Everybody there was the smartest kid in their class, and you’re all rabidly competing for a sliver of a chance at something down the road. It’s petty, and savage, fiercely entrenched in a culture of formalities and ceremony, and exactly like Washington DC.

Yesterday when I was driving home, the NPR reporter talking about the Oval Office meeting mentioned that Trump had thought it was going to be a “getting to know you” type meeting, but that he was surprised when Obama stretched their talk out to 90 minutes before sending him along to the Capitol building where he met with congressional leaders for more lengthy meetings and stuff he didn’t want to do.

And he hasn’t even gotten to the actual job yet.
