The "bombing the barrier reef" thing is a massive load of non-story ********. The planes were running low on fuel and dropped 4 disarmed bombs into the water. They'll probably be picked up at some point. This happens literally all the time.

The only reason it's even a thing is that "US Bombs Great Barrier Reef" is a good headline to attract clicks on a blog if you don't mind completely misleading readers.

Russia is not declaring war on homosexuality, you can still be gay in Russia without prejudice, it's just the government actively speak their views against it.

Porn isn't blocked from the internet in Britain yet, and there's opposition to it. It might not even happen yet.

As far as I'm told, the bombs thing was necessary. The bombs were disarmed and was done because they needed to drop weight from the planes to save fuel. Nothing and nobody was damaged and it wasn't an act of aggression in the slightest.

I cannot find a legit source that I trust talking about the New Zealand thing, so I'll hold judgement for a moment.

They weren't all convicted Al Qaeda members, but rather Al Qaeda coordinated the jailbreak of 500 prisoners, and some were Al Qaeda members. So that's horribly inaccurate from the outset.

I don't know where you pulled 437% from, but I found 35%. I cannot find anywhere that says 437%. And besides, this news was about 3 weeks ago. www.reuters.com/article/2013/07/05/us-brazil-deforestation-idUSBRE9640ZD20130705

In case you haven't noticed, the majority of people don't give that much of a **** about the baby either.

I guess it wouldn't be called a "war" but its definitely a severe crackdown. Adopted children can be taken from gay parents, any form of homosexual advertising or "propaganda" is considered pornography, teachers and parents can be arrested or fined for telling children that being gay is natural, they're banning adoptions to countries with marriage equality, and tourists can be detained for up to 2 weeks if they're suspected of being gay, lesbian or even being pro-gay. You can still be gay in Russia, but you'll risk having your life destroyed and your kids taken from you.
Everything else you're spot on about.

from your link:

"Satellite data compiled by Brazil's space agency showed 465 sq km (180 sq mi) of deforestation during the month of May, nearly a five-fold increase compared with destruction detected in May 2012."
To me, 437% is pretty close to "nearly a five-fold increase"

in one month yeah, comparing that one month isn't exactly fair. It says that May this year was nearly 5 times worse than May 2012. What if June was actually a quiet month for deforestation and everyone left the trees alone for a bit, but they got a whole years worth out in one month? A more accurate way to work it out is to work it out by year, and it says that in the past year deforestation has increased by 35%.

the article was poorly written, i think. But 437 has to come from somewhere! I agree on the may part tho. But as the article is kinda confusingly written it might be that the amount cutted in 2013 is 35% more than all of 2012 (which would make 437 fit into the story to a bigger degree)
i don't say i know stuff. I'm just looking for a way to make all facts agree.

Yeah, May 2013's levels of deforestation was a 437% increase from May 2012. But comparing the whole year it's only 35%. It just means that either May 2012 was a good month for low levels of deforestation or May 2013 was extraordinarily high for deforestation.

Well not many people may give a **** about the baby, but certainly some of the news outlets I visited had baby related news as their headlines (Yahoo, for example (Yes I know they are not a prime news source but bear with me)). I just checked Yahoo's scroll bar, and found at least 3-4 stories about the damn baby.

It seems like I can't go a couple minutes watching the news without "ROYAL BABY OMFG". I just turned off the TV (I'm going to bed soon), and right before I did, the news anchors were once again saying "The Royal family has decided on a name for the baby. We'll tell you all about it after this".

While noone I know seems to give a rat's puckered anus about this, the news can't get enough. Perhaps the content is talking about the news media talking about it. This is just my two cents.

((Reshiram because shut up.

So yeah, he's piss slow and wouldn't be used competitively at all if he didn't have the best Dream World ability known to pokemon, which was introduced in Gen 5.

Yeah I agree with you there. I was looking at the 437% and thinking "Given what I know of the Deforestation of the Amazon and how quickly it's risen in recent years, an increase of 437% would mean that it would have to be dang near gone at such a high percentage."

I was also looking at the porn being blocked in Britain thing and thinking "If that had actually happened and was in effect, there would be a much stronger outcry than I've been hearing".

Again, that's just my two cents.

((Reshiram again because why not.

The bomb dropped in the barrier reef was dropped into hundreds of feet of water, and was not detonated. It was dropped to jettison weight from a plane that would have otherwise crashed, claiming the lives of the pilots and leaving more than an un-detonated bomb hundreds of feet on the ocean floor. Just fyi

Yeah, its a little overreacted, however there is a ban against "homosexual propaganda" here in Petersburg, I think it just prohibits pro-gay riots and such, im personally not against gay rights but Russians do have to remember we have to take in account the backwards monkeys in Dagestan, Chechnya and etc, they would not be happy to have pro gay laws forced upon them. But anyway, gays in Russia are fine, just look at Moiseev there, that old ****** been open about it for many many years, and he is a popular singer and still up and kicking.

Those bombs weren't dropped like everybody is saying. It wasn't America deciding that "hey, you know what would be a good idea? Let's bomb the one part of Australia that doesn't have giant spiders". It was that the plane was going down and the only way they could save themselves was to drop the heaviest stuff on the plane. Since yo mamma wasn't aboard, they threw away the bombs.

correct, it was going to be a training exercise with dead ordinance, but the bomb range wasnt cleared of hazards so there was probably something in the area. they didnt have enough fuel to get back to ship unless they dropped some dead weight. and I beleive they dropped it like 200 feet from the reef, not on the reef

you don't like children? that is your problem, not mine. And yes, i find the fact that next king of England has been born pretty nice. For me it's the best form of election
