I'm not in a position of any sort of journalistic power other than a specific region of Texas in the music industry, and that's even debatable. I'm just evaluating presentation. 😛
lol. r u saying i look like a douche? u can be honest
Like the Dearth Vader voice?
Basically this and a voice mod to protect your identity. 😛
Lol, i don't always wear the hat and glasses. sometimes it's better for the lighting.
I'm just being an ass since it was invited. 😛
Abolish Ice caps not ICE. Then the flattards will see the ice doesn't hold the water on earth
She better cover dem ankles the fuck back up
Well that wasn't inevitable...
"The European Commission has announced plans to make biometric ID cards compulsory across the bloc which will allow authorities to bar “terrorists and criminals” from accessing money and other services." why do i get the feel that terrorist and criminals will be the "free speech extremists"and not the grooming gangs and shit?
Many countries are doing it though. It does simplify a lot of bureaucratic systems, but it also has huge privacy implications.
@LOLTRON I dont see how biometric IDs supposed to allow to bar “terrorists and criminals” from accessing money and other services."
technically ther capable of that already
Whats worse if those bastards start to copy chinese social credit system

Yeh, Bearing did a great video on this...
thanks for the heads-up; i'll have to check it out. and wow knives too?
Yeh the knives thing.. That's just crazy.. I saw a video the other day of the Mayor of London defending it as the problem that needed to be solved to stop gang crime.. The audience wasn't having a bar of it.
Knives arent the problem, lack of law enforcement and accountability is the problem.
Quote from the Mayor of London on this topic: "No excuses: there is never a reason to carry a knife. Anyone who does will be caught, and they will feel the full force of the law. "
Meanwhile in Texas, you can open carry a katana.
Not that anyone sane would because katanas are shit
but glorious nippon steel
I generally keep a rather large survival knife on me.
The looks I get when someone asks if I've got a lighter, and I open the pommel of the knife and pull out a match. 😛
Probably not a lot of mass Kanata-ings though
Most Texans aren't Bruce Lee, I imagine...
I actually do train with a bokken and a bo staff. 😛
^ ^ ^ kind of eccentric.
survival/utility knives are handy tools for sure. i bring a freshly sharpened 250mm chef knife over to my buddys house to meal prep every other week. between this and the uk judge who wanted to make everyone file their knife points down, i think people are going to hurt themselves trying to cut stuff with objects that are not designed to be used as knives
Nothing more dangerous about a knife than dullness.
