What? Romans, not Romani...

Besides, both are (were) great nations of compilers with little knack for innovation.

OK, I admit it, I have underestimated Roman creativity.

Doesn't Cretino's quote actually reinforce Feral's earlier statements.

If Romans had a knack to making existing things better, that's pretty similar to what was said about the Japanese.

Does it leave a trail of it's work? Digital fingerprint? If not, we're gonna have to do a lost more travelling.

This is actually frightening. But at least we would be able to say in court with a straight face that we were not there and the video is fake when presented with our recorded actions...

As long as it's not a reproduction of reality, you can decide to trust it or not. Don't trust photos, videos, audios, etc.
Just like in the old days. It's a step back for who knows how many forward.

*depressed Feral's Frenzy ends*

I tried to convey the Beast of a Cainite, not old pervy sweaty guys... Sad

@Jad: No, There is also Cerrado (Savanna) and Caatings (dry Mediterranean style shrub-land), as well as Pantanal (swamps) and tropical steppe near the border with Uruguay...

There is even border dispute between Brasil and Uruguay, as well as between Brasil, Uruguay and Argentina, for a swampy island known as Isola Brasiliera...

No worries, all I traded in for that is 4 pt Physical Flaw: Ugly. lol!

Ah, but Cretino, Philo, what is the deal with the border disputes you have with Uruguay and Argentina? Those lands are the middle of nowhere with no significance...?

If you tilt your head, you can see that Argentina is actually a soccer shoe. That goes to show how much they like soccer, just like us (but a lot less (I feel we had this discussion before...)); point is, if we take that little bit of land on their Northeast, then they will suck at soccer (more than they do already), and they don't want that. Also, there's a river right there between Paraguay (land of piracy counterfeit products of South America). So giving away this little piece of shit land is a no-no for them.

Uruguay is a great country (unlike Brazil). That's it.

Btw I'm just joking around, ask Philo more about the borders.

There's absolutely zero border contention between Brazil & Friends. I have lived here all my live and this is the first time I've ever heard someone mention any border contention.
Oh, I'm sure there are a couple dozen burocrats having lenghty discussions about the topic, but a couple dozen burocrats talking about something and nothing is the same.


My suspicions that Feral always goes to a wiki page before posting here just to sound smart keeps growing What a Face

@Cretino: Do you actually mean football? You know, the game Brazil sucks at? 7:1?

Definitelly football.

I saw red borders on GoogleEarth and started to wonder why they are there...
But Philo is right, Wiki knows everything:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isla_Su%C3%A1rez
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brazilian_Island
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gua%C3%ADra_Falls

On the former they still need to get it through court and congress before it's active to my understanding, but yeah I don't have hope for that. The best hope, I think, is that the next president will undo the damage done.

The president doesn't care.
The commission was selected so that the neutrality is destroyed.

I'm  glad there is pushback against the FCC decision, though if the case goes to the supreme court, the republican inclined judges have a majority so ...

I'm also somewhat surprised Ajit Pai has not been shot yet. As far as I know he has been doxxed already, so it's almost like Americans aren't as much into shooting each other as I thought they were.

As for the second one, I'm not shocked at all. Expecting Trump to read the laws he signs is ... well, the nicest word I can find for it is "naive". And on top of that he never really bothered too much with consistency anyway.
