Bash
« on: September 05, 2014, 04:21:38 pm »
I know that the channel is being logged (https://colabti.org), but since not everyone uses it, I thought that it's worth sharing a bit of fun stuff from there.

I'll add more when I'll get the chance. Fell free to add yours too.



< kkmic        > Well, at least you don't have Russia close by bent on "liberating" and "accidentally crossing the border" on Ukraine
< Warboy       > aren't they reconsidering now that NATO is involved?
< kkmic        > If bombs will start falling from the skies around me, I really won't give a shit if NATO is involved or not.
< Warboy       > fair point
                 i just thought they'd backed off in light of nato support
< kkmic        > I'm not sure the Russians are that easy to impress
< DarkDefender > Warboy: right now it seems like Russia will start WW3 if NATO gets involved. They are like: "Do do anything stupid, NATO. We have nukes!"
                 Putin is too concerned to not lose face so I don't think he will back down either
< page         > perhaps he's under alien control
< Warboy       > improbable, russia never signs a pact
                 nailed it.

nobody is making fun of the situation. we were making fun of politicians and xcom logic. surely those are fair game.

the conversation preceding it merely provides the context... do i really need to explain this?

Yes, this is a sensitive matter and the conversation was extrapolated form its context....it was somewhat clear but you HOW DAMN EASY is to misinterpret  ::)

Damn. You can't even enjoy a joke about your own bad situation these days...

Make fun, not war.

Jokes are indeed man's last refuge in a grim situation like this, but pro-war jokes are really bad taste; and if you innocently suggest that Russia is the sole agressor here, and the NATO wasn't involved from the very start (2004 at least), you can be easily interpreted as being pro-war. The situation is very complex with at least 3 sides with legitimate greviances, and a dozen of sides with vested interests in the conflict. Don't believe in everything the media say, as they say exactly what they're expected to say, both Ost und West.

who's making pro-war jokes? i'm locking this thread because you people are clearly unable to read what was said, and this thread is devolving with every post.

seriously, how much can you miss the point by so much?
