  1. Putin is having a bit of a problem with desertions in his own military invasion ranks. Apparently some Russians soldiers don't want to fight against fellow slavs/Europeans/Christians, whatever the common the factor, they don't want it. So Putin is pulling troops from Chechnya and Syria who don't have those ties to Ukrainians. In the case of Chechnya, there are chechens fighting on both sides of the Ukrainian war now.
  2. But if KG-used-to-B is going behind Putin's back, all they need is some of the military and a viable replacement, they'll have a coup.
  3. President Zelenskyi said his assassination attempt was thwarted with the help of info from Russia's FSB. I'm not sure I believe that but holy shit if that is true.
  4. Ukrainian air defence shot down a missile that was headed toward main railway station of the capital. The railway station was at the time full of people being evacuated from the city. I got to tell you, the whole "It's not the Russians, just Putin" argument loses steam when something like this happens. A point will come when European military powers will have to calculate whether the risk of atomic weapon reprisal is worth it just not have to watch this atrocity happening and losing our soul.
  5. Plus EU is an economic alliance, not a military one. Membership might fast track application to NATO but not necessarily because Ukraine's application for latter is impeded by the same reason its application for the former has so far been, namely corruption and grift. EU is already dealing with Greece's pre-membership imaginative economic housekeeping, it's a case of once bitten twice shy.
  6. They'll install a Russia-friendly puppet government so Ukraine doesn't join NATO. But the ripple effect is that NATO will most likely now get a lot membership applications from other countries close to Russia's border. My country's current president has been pro-NATO all his political life and for there to be a referendum vote about application for membership. If there is a vote while people still remember what happened to Ukraine, it will pass.
  7. No, not the tabletop game itself or the videogames. But I do read the books, both Old World and 40k stuff (not Age of Sigmar yet).
  8. Not quite OG, I'm from 2003 and just too late to witness ThunderDroid's reign. I curse the fates, curse them! The sequel trilogy. I was saddened when the book canon went to the trash when Disney bought Star Wars but maybe, I thought, they can do better. The books had some lemons, to put it mildly. Then The Force Awakens came out and it was so milktoasty rehash of the first movie. Well, at least, they can only go up from here, I thought. Even if they just imitate The First Three, the next one is Empire. Oh boy, that prediction went badly with the Last Jedi or as we call it Character Assas
  9. If we do 2022 edition, 90% of the lists will have Queen Elizabeth and Ghislain Maxwell.
  10. I feel that with Marvel moving into their more "niche" characters with this movie and Shang Chi, the Hawkeye and Moon Knight tv series, I can finally watch them like a non-comics reading person because I know next to nothing about them going in.
  11. Hey!! I'm insulted now. So a horror movie for 12 year old female, who laughs at horror movies? Hmmm. Well, the 1990's "Arachnophobia" should be a riot.
  12. Three stars, complete with the orbiting moons.
  13. This had to be pointed to me but since it was, I can't stop thinking about it. When Loki was watching "This is your Life" reel it didn't end with Thanos breaking his neck but with Thor holding him. That means Loki was still alive and the last thing he felt before death was his brother hugging him.
  14. Is it going to be turn-based or will they remake it as a hack&slash like FF7 remake?
  15. Have you seen Deep Rising? It's from the guy who directed the Brendan Frasier version of the Mummy, with ILM special effects.
  16. Let's see. 2005. Smack dab in the middle between the Attack and the Revenge. I was Star Wars surfing the net and was pretty new to the larger internet. I had only been a member to one other online forum before Nightly and I was curious, although for a long time I stayed only within the Star Wars threads in Nightly. I was 22, had gotten out of the military the year previous, was working in a second-hand bookshop and trying to earn enough money to move out of my parent's house which I did next year. Currently 38, unemployed since January and living at my dad's place (mom passed away few years ag
  17. Seeing how much he was squinting against the sun, he really could have used his aviators.
  18. Krawlie, you still have that woman with "Don't tread on me" flag getting herself trampled. hashtagdarkhumor
  19. Oh hell. Now the conspiracy is here. There was a protest here (that got serious news coverage) about the anti-vaccine people linking any upcoming covid vaccines to microships, nanomachines, 5G, mutating human genome and mark of the beast. America, I blame you!
  20. Horus Heresy is pretty much at the core of the "modern day" Warhammer 40k but Horus' campaign against his dad is, what 40+ book series, so maybe just pick few key books. I liked the Eisenhorn trilogy which was a nice introduction to the world.
  21. That's what I'm told. Restrictions are being tightened again which is one step away from roadblocking the capital city areas from the rest of the country like was done earlier this year. Mind you, this is 25% of the whole population of country.
