I know Listverse isn't a high-quality site for news or information but it has some interesting posts, especially when you're 'aware'. Like most liberal burger rags it has a heavy anti-communist scaremongering angle in any content relative to the USSR, but an angle I don't see leftypol talk about as much is that also like most liberal burger rags, they try to avoid any mention of Russian or Soviet people in lists such as those of "real heroes" and whatever. Relative to this thread is
NOT ONE SINGLE NURSE mentioned is Russian, let alone Soviet. While I certainly wouldn't want to take away from the heroism of the others on that list, I find it peculiar as fuck given that unlike most countries Russia was among the earlier to have field nurses, starting at the very least from the Crimean War.
Soviet War Nurses were an intrinsic part of the Red Army and many were Heroes of the Soviet Union for their valor of saving troops under fire, such as Mariya Borovichenko (pic is not her).

Thoughts on Avatar? It's probably the most explicitly anti American movie of the decade and has strong anti imperial and anti capitalist themes.

Will it change anything?

why tf this have a wikipedia page?



Funny article I read comparing the initial storyline of Boruto with this movie. Made me laugh but it's kinda accurate.



The original Avatar MoCap is pretty damn intriguing. I think I like the design a bit more, in the sense that the narrower faces and less hyper-realism was interesting.

Why do Autisms love trains so much?

>They run on a set path at set times with a predictable time of leaving and arriving, which makes scheduling easier than if you had to travel by car since you can just pick the time that suits you the best.
>They don't have to compete with other forms of traffic because they're the only thing in the lane.
>They are comfortable to travel in
>They are more efficient than any other form of land-based mass transportation in terms of speed and how much they can carry.
>You don't have to stress about driving them yourself, even the actual drivers really only have to sit on their asses, occasionally accelerating and decelerating because the train goes on a set path.
>They can take you anywhere where there's a track; the tracks only have to be laid once and need much less replacement/maintenance than roads.
>They are less maintenance-intensive in terms of spare parts.
>They're much more clean in terms of their proportional environmental impact than a fleet of cars or buses.
>They don't need to be separately recharged or refueled because you can just hook them up to a source of electricity directly, which means they are more logistically sound on top of being energy efficient.
>They just look cool af.

As promised on >>527992 although I regret to inform that it will take a bit longer for the immortal jellyfish to get tattooed as I have commissioned an original design and have also been advised to wait for this one to heal first. It will take about a week or slightly more.

The leftypol logo / coat of arms is complete, although in the pictures it is still a bit bloody, It will become clean and the colors will have greater contrast once it has fully healed.

Follow ups will be posted on this thread, in the meantime feel free to use this thread to post about tattoos, piercings and general body modifications.

HDR low quality JPEGs has got to be one of the stupidest capitalist inventions yet.


anti-piracy measure lol
If you stream the video, the file is never downloaded, just portions get loaded to your RAM while playing. If you could pre-download the file to watch in full quality then it would be easier to pirate it. Yet another case of making things worse for the paying customers than the pirates.

>wouldnt you want more bright and colorful images so an hdr screen can show them off more?
Yeah but that competes with hiding the flaws in the CGI. Everything is super dark now, even unrealistically dark. The lighter areas are restricted to highlights and often backlighting/rim lights that define edges, which keeps most of the subject darker while also compensating for an indistinct silhouette. It's fine for certain kinds of shots, but it gets overused because it's budget friendly since it allows you to skimp more on the CGI and it simplifies compositing to have less light and fewer sources.


My hot take after passing three graduate school economics classes is: Daenerys did absolutely the right thing in Slaver’s Bay, especially by taxing the slaveowners who were illegally in the market to buy freed slaves. Imposing a duty on slaveowners was intended (and likely succeeded) to discourage people from buying slaves and went to the Meereenese government. Contrary to the opinions of people who want to hate her, Dany never pockets the money herself. She put a (relatively common irl) tax on buying slaves to de-incentivize it to people in the market for them; if buying slaves is more expensive than not buying them, the propensity to do it decreases greatly. She did the right thing here.

GRRM obviously doesn’t really touch the issue of CAB + FAB = 0, Balance of Payments, Federal/Official Reserves, bonds, etc. but assuming that Slaver’s Bay has a central bank of some sort and that they either can use official reserves with a neighboring state/bank or something to otherwise stimulate the economy (even in terms of export subsidies, quota rents, or import tariffs), it would take a maximum of a few years for the Slaver’s Bay economy to restabilize. With the right counsel and investments, it could be a matter of months (assuming she gets back to Meereen from the Dothraki relatively soon and we don’t see the mess of Tyrion trying to negotiate with the slavers like we did in the show) before it got back into full swing. The economy is whack right now because it’s a transitionary period where the current accounts balance and financial accounts balance are in a deficit. It’s expected with her abolishment of slavery.

I’ve said this once and I’ve said it again. Daenerys is an inexperienced sixteen-year-old ruler in Meereen. She made mistakes, for sure. But in terms of the economy? She’s taken all the right steps to ensure it’s eventual success. Daenerys did nothing wrong and the people who say her economic plans in Slaver’s Bay were all missteps clearly haven’t done their research.


Okay, but what about Aragorn's tax policy?

Tigress got done dirty in the 4th KFP movie and by proxy, Angelina Jolie (as did the rest of the Furious Five). I don't get the hate Aquafina got for her role though, I thought she played Zheng pretty well and the fox was a likeable character. I think part of it is because of her voice role for the Seagull in the Little Mermaid movie, where the director clearly just had her act like a racist stereotype of a loud annoying black woman for no reason. The other part is how Tigress got almost no screentime and Zheng was the focus instead, which probably irritated fans, especially with how important Tigress was to all 3 films and the Furious Five being important supportive characters in general through-out the films and TV-series.


that movie had a lot of bad writing decisions in general tbh

I know. It also pisses me off that the 7 Nation Army cover from the first trailer wasn't actually used in the movie or that it STILL hasn't been released as OST.


Pic rel is an inconsistency about Chameleon's motivations, but it can be reasonably explained: her argument of being rejected for being "too small" falls on its face the second you remember mantis is like 5 inches tall.

Granted it can be argued that this is a different region and we have seen masters reject teaching someone kung fu just because of the way they look like, for instance, Crane had to literally prove himself to everyone who doubted him because of his skinny legs. And Viper technically speaking was seen by her father as someone that he must protect because of her lack of fangs and venom. Plus, it wasn't just her being small as her reason, she also said that some masters said that she was lowly and others also said that it just wasn't her destiny to learn Kung Fu.
