  1. This government was already a replacement technocrat government that came into power after the protests last year, but it was supported by the major parties. What I've read is that there is no real organized opposition to the corrupt ruling parties so it's unlikely that elections would change much.
  2. Lebanese government has resigned after violent protests https://edition.cnn.com/2020/08/10/middleeast/lebanon-government-future-intl/index.html
  3. I don't know what the phenomenon is called in which old tools, consumer products, etc become decorative pieces? Like somebody might use an old mechanical typewriter or tube radio as an ornament. And it seems to happen some years after the item has become obsolete. For example now you can buy ornaments that look like rotary dial landline phones but are not actually functional. Anyway, I started to think is there some piece of obsolete or old fashioned technology that isn't going to have that happening? And maybe the 80s-early 2000s beige box computers? Did anyone ever think they actually look good? F.e. can you imagine this being used for decoration without at least some kind of repaint or similar? It's just so incredibly boring looking. I've seen corrugated cardboard boxes that are more interesting to look at.

    I like Katy Perry

    Can we have a Cher thread also?
  5. I got a Switch Lite when this pandemic hit and first I played LoZ: Breath of the Wild, which is huuuuge and then the remake of Link's Awakening which was surprisingly easy for such an old game. I guess improved controls help? Anyway, pretty much done with them both. Not going to go for 100% completions especially in BotW because that's just ridiculous. 900 korok seeds, etc. But I finished the stories in both. Now kind of wondering what should I get next for the Switch. Xenoblade Chronicles sounds interesting but it looks a bit too much like JRPG which I've played some but not a big fan. Also never really liked games where you have a "party" or similar. Idky. I guess there are always the latest Mario games, but I'm a bit done with them already. I've just played too many Mario games in my time. Or like what is the 9th or 10th Mario Kart game in the series really going to bring into table anymore? Nintendo should just finally make a new version of F-Zero and not try covertly insert some of its gameplay to Mario Kart..
  6. Silos are generally thick steel enforced concrete that can take very heavy explosions while the rest of the dock buildings are corrugated steel with light frames that get blown away by storms.

    Share your dreams

    Ok, this wasn't a recent thing but happened some years ago and just happened to remember it for some reason. You all know the dream where you find a door or some hallway or similar in your home that for some reason you haven't ever before realized was there? Supposed to be something like unrealized subconscious potential or whatever. Well, some years ago I was living in a relatively new apartment I had moved in and I thought I had a dream a bit like that where I found a cupboard in kitched that I hadn't realized was there before. Like I went to kitched half-asleep at night to look for some night time snacks and found a cupboard that I didn't realize was there. In the morning I started to think that the dream was a bit too realistic and did that actually happen? I went to kitchen to check and where I thought I had dreamed a new cupboard was a cupboard I had never before realized was there and completely empty. That was a pretty surreal feeling.
  8. I understand the sentiment, but Russia really is such a huge place that you are bound to find all sorts of werid shit. Like that area is in Kalmykia, which is a republic within the Russian Federation. It's the only Buddhist majority state in Europe and their native language is a Mongolic language called Kalmyk, although most people now speak Russian. Also chess is really big in Kalmykia and it's compulsory in all primary schools there. Check this: Can you imagine somebody getting murdered when investigating government spending on chess?
  9. I was planning a trip for when this pandemic is over and came across this place on the map. What the hell is going on here? It looks like an asteroid scraped Earth a bit. https://www.google.com/maps/dir///@46.011812,47.4845238,102448m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m2!4m1!3e3!5m1!1e1
  10. Americans are going to copy the Eurovision Song Contest format https://variety.com/2020/music/news/eurovision-song-contest-american-song-contest-1234726887/ I didn't know this shit was contagious. It's the worst cultural cancer Europe has developed since WW2.
