Always assume the worst. That way you can only ever be pleasantly surprised.

But yeah, we might have lost something in the translation, I guess...

They go at it seriously...?

They are really turning into second Japan...

Bigger, more populated, better armed, resources starved version of Japan from 1920s...

I presume you wanted to put a "less" in front of resource starved.

Don't forget they have slowly disintegrating and resource rich Russia... Yummy target. Eastern parts even used to be Chinese.

Russia is in irreversible demographic collapse, with a ton of violent separatism, mostly of the Allahu akbar type, too long borders, infrastructure 30 years past expiry date and elites that mostly do nothing but steal...
Fun fact: oil and gas pipelines Russian economy depends on have been last maintained in any significant way during the times of Gorbachev...
Worse still, Far East and North have populations that are not only significantly not Russian, with massive Chinese immigration into Amur basin, mostly illegal. Also those populations identify with Russia less and less...

As for the women: instead of spewing nonsense, she should teach those poor background students better... Or get into a straitjacket...

I have a hypothesis why minotaurs might be depicted with axes.

Wikipedia wrote:
Labyrinth is a word of pre-Greek, Minoan origin, which the Greeks associated with the palace of Knossos in Crete. It is also widely associated with the Lydian word labrys ("double-edged axe"),[9][10] and since the double axe motif appears in the ruins at Knossos, it has been suggested that the original labyrinth was the royal Minoan palace in Crete. This designation may not have been limited to Knossos, because the same symbols were discovered in other palaces in Crete.[11]

Indeed, it is plausible. But mechanically speaking, not the most effective weapon for a Minotaur.

I have a vague recollection of the labrys (double headed axe) being a symbol of Clan Baali too, from their Clanbook.

They'd definitely be more effective with miniguns.

Speaking of which, it always seems strange to me that such a big gun would be called a minigun.

Well, mostly because it is much lighter than the Vulkan:

I've always felt the hate speech thing was just a convenient cover for censorship.

The worst thing to observe was Zer0's changing after he lost the first job; his adaptation to conditions required to 'succeed.' (Did not find the interview in english.)
