Part two for the night! first time I can remember needing one quite this early, haha!Part one>>35817577++[x] Not... exactly. (Tell her the full truth)“Not... exactly.” You say, then begin to tell Merlin about the orders, Longstreet's letters, and Ice's utter lack of options. “I-I won't go back. N-not even for that. I-if I c-can't fly with F-frank, I won't F-fly.” Merlin says, her voice panicked, but firm. “I-I'd rather hand in my w-wings a-and resign.” “Merlin...” Ice starts, but Merlin shakes her head. “I-I wasn't a witch until F-frank made me one.” Merlin responds. “I-if I'm not flying w-with him, t-then I'm not a w-witch anymore a-and they don't n-need me.” Brigitte nods. “She got a point, sistah. De matron, she be de one to tell girls dey ain't got what it take to be a witch. She be in a tight spot if 'mantha here decide ta leave.” “But she is a witch!” Ice says, exasperated. “That's why she's here.” Brigitte grins and shakes her head. “No, ya be wrong. She be a talent, like de Baron. Dey different. De findings at Barin, dey not be so sure yet what dey mean. Meybbe she is a witch, dat true. But dey no be sayin dat yet, only dat de baron an her, dey make a good team.”“So they're replacing her with a witch. It still doesn't mean we've got any way of preventing it.” Ice says. “I can't do anything, not without losing my career and even if I do that, my replacement will just transfer them off anyway.” 1/2
Brigitte nods thoughtfully. “Dat be true, dey do be havin ya in a bad place. Meybbe I can be helpin a sista out, mmm?” She looks over at you. “Ya give me de baron, no questions axed, for tree night. I take de little one too, and deir plane. It be leavin ya short I know, but ya be havin dat new witch, she be takin up some of de slack. When dey come back, I be able to work wit NAVSPECWAR an JSOC an we meybbe pull one over on dem, oui?”Ice looks doubtful at the suggestion, and Brigitte shrugs. “All I be offerin ya is a way out. It be up to ya to take it or leave it.”Ice looks at you. “What do you think, Frank?”  Sounds like a good deal to me.  Sounds like a long shot, at best.
>>35823324> Sounds like a good deal to me.As Cain would say, a slight chance of success is infinitely better than one of certain DOOOOOM
>>35823324 Sounds like a good deal to me. When all you have is a hammer...
>>35823281> Sounds like a good deal to me.
>>35823324> Sounds like a good deal to me.>for the nighthue
>>35823324> Sounds like a good deal to me.this do the mission she wanted right
>>35823324> Sounds like a good deal to me.Worth a try.And now officially all Bishop Siblings is member of SOF community if this come through.
>>35823324>[X] Sounds like a good deal to me.Hell, I'd do this for free. Plus it gives us an excuse to stall Merlin's transfer.
>>35823324>Sounds like a good deal to me.
>>35823324>[x] Sounds like a good deal to me.Brigitte wouldn't do us wrong.R..right?
>>35823324> Sounds like a good deal to me.>"Just let me get my whistle ready."
>>35823324>[x] Sounds like a good deal to me.>Ask if Brigitte will supply adequate 'protection'
>>35823381She would do us, though.
>>35823324>[x] Sounds like a good deal to me.Having friends at JSOC can go a long way.
>>35823324 Sounds like a long shot, at best.
>>35823324>[X] Sounds like a good deal to me.Surely NATO can hold the lines for the three nights (or is that just one night?) we are gone, right?
>>35823381At very worst, Bridgitte doing this with good faith.Whether its work or not its another matter.
>>35823381Brigitte is the one advocating for Harem Route. Screwing over Fronk isn't in her best interests, either.
>>35823391This, but plug Merlin's ears first.
>>35823324> Sounds like a good deal to me.
>>35823391>implying she wants protection
>>35823421>implying Merlin don't know about such thing alreadyShe might not a lewd girl, but damned if she don't know about these thing already.
>>35823324 Sounds like a good deal to me.
>>35823324> Sounds like a good deal to me.Ice needs that hug
>>35823324>[X] Sounds like a good deal to me.
>>35823431but frank dose
>>35823324> Sounds like a long shot, at best.feels like we're still kinda over reacting
>>35823443frank has no choice
>>35823436Oh, I know that, but I would think it in character, given how much Frank dotes on her.
>>35823416ah yes...best girl
>>35823455he is gonna need the whistle then
>>35823455But how are we supposed to hit Strigon's airbase without some measure of protection?
>>35823324>[x] Sounds like a good deal to me.Brigitte's has been dealing in good faith with Spellcaster squadron in the past and she seems to know her stuff.
>>35823460>Tank Witches>SOF operator>EbonyMy only Grief that Bridgitte is on Fronks route.If she is on Jake's it'd be nice to see her lewds with Tops and Tahira.
>>35823476>the rape whistle>not an aphrodesiac for witches
>>35823324> Sounds like a good deal to me.WElp, a shot is a shot
>>35823501What about Wittman? thaw the bitchiness out of her
>>35823508I still can't get over the rape whistle being a voodoo fetishI wasn't sure that planefag would have the same spark when he came back but by god he does
>>35823501>Jake/Top/P-L>not Jake/Wittmann and Top/P-L
>>35823530I think that bitch needs to take a RPG
>>35823549>Not including Sushi
>>35823530She has to watch the delicious brown witches go at it with envy. It's a punishment for her bitchiness.
maybe Bridgitte likes getting cat calls
>>35823530>>35823549>Not wanting all-chocolates dine.>>35823561She just need a rescue romance by Jake in Shining Achilles.
>>35823568Sushi has Siegel, silly.
>>35823324> Sounds like a good deal to me.Lets not tell here we probably would have done her favor anyway.
>>35823561Your /r9k/ is showing
>>35823501no fuck that shes coming with!
>>35823561>I think that bitch needs to take a RPGOh, so that's what we call Jake's "main armament now?
>all the bitching in the previous thread about ordersWe're a United States Navy fighter pilot. When we joined, we swore an oath to follow the lawful orders of all officers appointed over us. There's nothing unlawful about this. Stop being whining cunts and deal with it like men.>Pic entirely related.
ya know at the end of this quest frank and his family are all gonna have the CMH
>>35823603woh lets not use that word!>>35823625this guy gets it!
>>35823324> Sounds like a long shot, at best.
>>35823625I prefer to called it 'Kinetic Penetrator' though.
>>35823647"Long Rod Penetrator"?
>>35823647Huh. You know, wasn't Jake's original unit called "Pants' Penetrators" or something to that effect?...oh, good one, Maus.
>>35823629No one seems to think that Merlin is acting entitled or spoiled, when her abilities outside of a Witch (her RIO training and her scientific aptitude) are called on, she stamps her feet and whines that she doesn't want to.I really think we're enabling some bad behavior here.
>>35823757You know what? You're right. She is acting entitled and spoiled. She's in a military organization. It's not up to her to make use of her talents and abilities effectively, it's up to her leadership. If they think that's back at the States, then so be it. We'll get another RIO. Either they'll be good enough, or they won't. End of story.
Is there a predrawn picture of this Davis or did I miss it?Also, what if Davis is an honest to god fan and this is her Make-A-Wish wish?
>>35823808That would be feels.
>>35823821Looks like it.
>>35823629>implying enlisted soldier won't whine all of the time.Retarded orders is retarded, no matter if its lawful or not. Low rank might got no choice to follow it, but you won't stop their whine.
>>35823821Not really. Just because it's an ugly truth you don't want to hear, doesn't make it a samefag or untrue.
>>35823799>>35823757>>35823629Response: Witch Privilege. It lets you get away with almost anything. Including what Longstreet is currently trying to do.
[x] Sounds like a good deal to me. “Sounds like a good deal to me.” You say, shrugging. “Still leaves us Davis, though.” Ice nods. “I can't just send her home, but if Merlin isn't leaving, I can't keep her here.” She says, then waves that away. “It's whatever. I'll handle it.” “What about Joseph?” Wendy asks. “Isn't he to be leaving soon for Annapolis?” Ice nods. “Yeah but that means he's still a couple years out of flight, even if he gets fast tracked. He's no help, even if he does eventually end up here. Don't worry about it, I'll handle it regardless. You three need to get back down to the pad, I don't want you caught up here if the raiders show back up, ok? Get going. Brigitte, sticking around for a second? I need to talk.”Brigitte nods- you catch it out of the corner of your eye as you stand up and pick Merlin up, depositing her on your shoulders, while Wendy opens the door. “So it that why you were as short with Matron Longstreet as you were?” She asks, once you're safely down the hall- the Japanese witch's unnerving gaze following you. You nod. “Yeah. She's been trying to play dirty to get what she's wanted the entire time, it's getting old by this point.” You say. “She's going after Ice to get us.”Wendy nods. “It seems, though, you've got friends who will go to great lengths to keep you here. That must be nice.” You think you don't? You're one of us now, don't forget. Of course it is. That's how we work, Wendy.
>>35823848Except it's really not true?
>>35823851>Witch PrivilegeI remember when /tg/ railed against Witch Privilege and how they were suppressing the knowledge of Gnomes.And now, /tg/ abuses it at every opportunity and voluntarily suppresses technological advances which would give our side an edge in the current and potentially upcoming war.
>>35823864>[X] You think you don't? You're one of us now, don't forget.
>>35823864> You think you don't? You're one of us now, don't forget.> Of course it is. That's how we work, Wendy.I don't see why both cannot be used
>>35823864> You think you don't? You're one of us now, don't forget.You are part of the harem too, silly.
>>35823864>[x] You think you don't? You're one of us now, don't forget.
>>35823864> You think you don't? You're one of us now, don't forget.nobody fucks with franks family
>>35823864[x] You think you don't? You're one of us now, don't forget.
>>35823864>You think you don't? You're one of us now, don't forget.
>>35823864> You think you don't? You're one of us now, don't forget.>>35823799Except it isn't the leadership making the decision, it's a single assblasted Matron using every favor she can drawn out her withered cooch to pull an important combat asset out of the front so that she can throw her at some project that can't provide any useful results in order to make herself a fancy-looking resume
>>35823884Welcome to politics.
>>35823884Yes, those great technological advances that instantly pop out of Merlin's ass and don't take years of r&d, testing and the like before they even reach production stages, much less widespread use.
>>35823864> You think you don't? You're one of us now, don't forget."one of this day we'll think some comeback for that L...L..Lay Malloy or whatever.">>35823884>would give our side an edgeWhich still doubtful at best, and in that regard she potentially compromise an active unit combat capabilities.Dr. light and Sokolov have better chance of giving USA edge all she needs.
>>35823864> You think you don't? You're one of us now, don't forget.Give her a noogie/headpat to emphasize the point
Man the Longstreet apologists are even worse than Longstreet, almost.
>>35823864> You think you don't? You're one of us now, don't forget.>>35823974Do this if she questions it.
>>35823947>Yes, those great technological advances that instantly pop out of Merlin's ass and don't take years of r&d, testing and the like before they even reach production stages, much less widespread use.They kind of did, with how quickly Merlin's magical storage technology is getting adopted. Sure, it's not weeks, but it is mere months before seeing them used in limited production in elite units like ours, and in the Ghosthawk of PJ Witches.
>>35823864> You think you don't? You're one of us now, don't forget.> Of course it is. That's how we work, Wendy.
>>35823864>[x] Of course it is. That's how we work, Wendy.>>35823831Honestly I don't mind Davis coming into the squadron or even that she's trying to become Frank's RIO. She may have completed her time at the academy so she may possibly understand sparkle theory more than Merlin making her one of the best candidates for understanding or testing out how the hell Frank and Merlin's talent works by being a control group. As silly as it sounds when dealing with magic.The problem is that Longstreet is trying to force a solution out of this whole entire thing when this is a situation that requires a more delicate touch. She could've easily sent Davis to observe and be a mediary. Even if she was suspected to be a spy that wouldn't be something detrimental to the group. Longstreet is working for the long term goal, but she sabotages her own efforts by being too hard handed.
>>35823983how did she send people to our wor- oh god we are going to go SRW soon
>>35823864>[x] You think you don't? You're one of us now, don't forget.You're one of us kid.
>>35823983>Longstreet apologiststo think they are exist is a miracle unto itself.
>>35823864> You think you don't? You're one of us now, don't forget.
>>35823983please stop projecting your issues onto a fictional woman, anon
>>35823864[X] You think you don't? You're one of us now, don't forget.
>>35824010A sensible post after a while.Let me cheers for you, anon.
>>35823983But I'm not an apologist, you cunt. I never said she's in the right. I never said she was cool, or not wrong, or she hasn't done anything wrong.Merlin is being whiny and spoiled, and we're enabling her to do so. This is a fucking military, and witch privilege can only extend so far before someone says "Enough is fucking enough."
>>35824005Sure; but that's got zilch to do with what Longstreet wants to do.To get useful tech advances we need Merlin humping an R&D lab at C-V/Lockheed/Boeing, not scoring Longbitch political brownies at Annapolis.
>>35824015>the base is attacked by zakusII backed up by red tank witcheshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvNX92x8eoM
>>35824010A sensible and well thought out post?Who are you and what have you done to anon?
>>35824010I think O'Hare mention that while pursuing her goals which will benefit American witches she inadvertently set them back decades due to alienation of certain groups
>>35824005That's two units out of the entire US military and they are both super secret/hi-tech testbed units already. Most of the equipment was built by Merlin herself or by people just as/nearly as smart. To find a way to make it reliably mass produced is going to take years.
We should ask Psychomoto what she thinks.
>>35824047Merlin haters are even worse than the Longstreet apologists.
>>35824068It's probably someone from the cabal. The unwashed masses can't possibly be that level headed.
>>35824005And we still don't know what the problems with the Hammer space tech will be and don't say there will be none, it's bleeding edge tech there is bond to be issues.
>>35824100Go back to pooping
>>35824047But Longsheet uses that privilege way more then Merlin does who may not even be considered a witch. Though she does need to cut off the cake.
>>35824090Pointing out character flaws isn't being a hater.
>>35824090JUST LIKE GAMERGATE!
>>35824084Not to mention risk studies. What happens if you toss a live grenade into one? What happens to the contents if the casing is damaged to varying degrees?
>>35824132Oh don't you start.
>>35824088>Why don't you just stab the cunt?Do you really think she'll say anything else?
>>35824049>To get useful tech advances we need Merlin humping an R&D lab at C-V/Lockheed/Boeing, not scoring Longbitch political brownies at Annapolis.I don't know, the testing facilities at Patuxent seem to be one of the best in the nation for naval testing of new systems.Particularly of the magical storage systems.
>>35824172Won't know until we ask, will we? She could be perfectly reasonable, and just look insane.
>>35824210Or she IS insane but know when to hide it.
>>35824206Except for the whole, Longstreet wants her there so she can immediately poach her and not let her actually do any of that kind of work thing.
>>35824073Mainly I think that Longstreet's been involved in the ugly side of witch politics for too long so she made the mistake of defaulting to aggressive dealing and leverage when it came to Spellcaster squadron. If she simply apologized (falsely or otherwise) to Merlin and made a more passive inquiry into Merlin's abilities when they first came up at worst she'd have at worse a tense relationship with the squadron rather than outright hostility. Even now she could've made a move that would somewhat patch things up. She's basically using a power play over and over again despite the fact that a simple admission of fault (that loses her nothing) and would help everyone involved.It's kind of sad really, but that's politics for you.
ok since we stopped the transfer we she focus on the number one mission of this questOperation Harem
>>35824278I think we're at the point of no-return with her. Unless she can whip up something that we can use or benefit the squadron then I doubt Merlin or Frank will forgive her.
Playing devil's advocate here.Davis may be just as effective as Merlin, if not moreso. Davis may or may not be an ardent Longstreet supporter.Until we give her a shot, we can't make any judgements about her beforehand. She may indeed be an innocent party in all this.And besides, why can't we poach her for ourselves? What's her excuse for not having a pilot assigned to her? Why can't Spellcaster or another unit near the front get one of these kinds of witches?What if Fronk and Merlin are so effective primarily because they combine the best of witchcraft and steelwings? If saddling a witch and a pilot together can consistently produce results, why aren't more people doing it? It could become standard practice.>>35824088>Oh god Frank Bishop is right there.>Shit he's so cool. I can't stop shaking.>Uhm. Crap. I need to say something.>Shit. SHIT. I'm making that stupid face again!>He probably thinks I'm insane or something.>Mother, please help! What do I do?!>Please notice me sempai!
>>35824290Harem is haraam.Besides, none of the girls actually want to share.
>>35824290i am to tired to type it needs to be should focusnot she
>>35824307>Notice me SenpaiLost it.
>>35824307>forgot to turn off my gnome and woke up covered in witches
>>35824307I have no problem adopting Davis as our fourth little sister. The problem is Longstreet.
>>35824172"Why don't you just stab the cunt?"You ever met anyone who actually thinks this way? I did. Back when my younger bro and sis were still in high school they had an exchange student from Holland. He was a fun guy, we invited him over to parties, etc.At one such party the group was discussing a particularly shitty schoolmate who had done something awful. Everyone's like "fuck that guy!"Exchange student busts out the Taking-It-To-The-Next-Level disagreement, says "We should just burn his fucking house down." Offers to go get some gasoline, wanted to do it right then. Was fucking TOTALLY SERIOUS.Made sure to never piss him off.
>>35824307The problem ain't Davis, it's Longstreet. >Shit. SHIT. I'm making that stupid face again!>He probably thinks I'm insane or something.That's a good one.
>>35824307This must happen! I want to see Psychomoto and Kenji family bonding. I imagine Psychomoto will push for lewds between Him and Merlin
>>35824415and then the headpats the poor girl will explode
>>35824307I got no preoblem with Davis since for now she is unknown qualities yet.If Longstreet just send her to us to alternate with merlin, i think all anon will cool with that.
>>35824435Natlya and Stalinka are good examples
>>35824446I'd have been cool with it.Its the total replacement that I have a fucking beef with. Imagine the shitstorm if after changing fronk gets shot down....I actually wanna see this what if.
>>35824453I don't recall if Frank ever headpat Natlya yet.
>>35824307The problem isn't with Davis, it's that she's just being used by Longstreet as an excuse to take Merlin off the front and put her to work as a political tool
>>35824472Once. She didn't really get what it was for.
>>35824307Like the others have said, Davis ain't the problem, hell I'd be all for finding her a pilot and steelwing to ride alongside us and the sherks, but the problem is Longstreet.Davis is being used as a pawn by Longcunt, so she's unfortunately collateral damage by Stretchedcunt's actions.If we can get Davis on our team and deal with Pulledflaps, then that's great.
>>35824488>Longcunt>StretchedcuntIs this how we refer to Shitstreet now? Just escalate until you can't even tell that it's Shitstreak that you're talking about?
>>35824488stick to one fucking name!
>>35824488Heck, if the point of failure was Merlin's stamina instead of Fronk's health she'd be a downright godsend
>>35824613>"I am no longer Schlongsheet." The ancient matron dropped some of the planets she was juggling. "The worlds have shifted. I am Longslit, of the Darkmeal."
>>35824659I'm still willing to test if she's the real deal or not.
[x] You think you don't? You're one of us now, don't forget.You laugh, wrapping an arm around her shoulder and pulling her in for a sort of side-on hug. “You think you don't? You're one of us now, don't forget.” You say, and she seems to pick up a bit at that. “It's just- I'm not used to it. Sorry, sir.” She says, somewhat sheepishly. You laugh again, letting her go. “Don't apologize! It's fine, we get it. But you are with us, now, and don't have to worry about it like you used to, you'll always have a place with the unit, ok?” She nods, but you're not quite sure she gets it. “I mean it, Wendy. No one's going to fuck with you, not and get away with it. You're safe here, ya know? Well,” You amend. “As safe as you can be when you're in a combat unit.”She nods again. “Do you- I mean, if it's not trouble, do you think we can do something for my birthday?” She asks, quietly, but kind of hopefully. “I understand if we can't, what with supplies and everything, but-”She shakes her head. “I know it's silly, but I haven't had a real birthday party since I was ten. I always had extra duty or classes or something assigned to me in the academy, and in the squadrons, it was the same, so I never really had a chance.”1/2
>>35824719>She shakes her head. “I know it's silly, but I haven't had a real birthday party since I was ten. I always had extra duty or classes or something assigned to me in the academy, and in the squadrons, it was the same, so I never really had a chance.”I...what...wtfffffff
“N-nothing?” Merlin asks, and Wendy shakes her head. “Well, one year I did get a cupcake from a bakery off base a few days before, and saved that.” She says, smiling. “That was a good year. The squadron maintenance unit let me have an office in the hangar and let me take a nap.”“That doesn't sound like much of a birthday.” You say. She shrugs, a smile returning to her face. “It seemed amazing, sir.” She said. “It came at a low point, for me, and helped me carry on. I think I should have resigned, had they not let me have that.”“Well, I can't promise you anything, but I'm sure I'm not going to be the only one that's all for giving you a proper birthday celebration.” You say, feeling Merlin's weight shift as she nods. “Thank you, sir.” Wendy says, actually hugging you as you stop next to their seats- Katya, who was reading by the maintenance lights, looks up briefly and quirks an eyebrow. “Everything is going well?” She asks, as Wendy sits down.  Better than it was an hour ago, yeah.  Everything's going good! We're going to have a birthday party for Wendy.
>>35824736whazzis about bogans cunt?
>>35824668I love you.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2V4VxlsMuQ4
>Maybe I'll laugh a little, like mother used to do, try and lighten the mood a bit.>Oh crap, that sounded really creepy!>Oh man, I think I scared Merlin!>S-s-sorry Merlin!>Forgive me sempai!>Crap. Okay. Calm down. Breathing. Breathing. Like in the dojo. Find my inner peace. Find my inner peace. Yup. I am calm, collected...And all Frank and company see is her laughing creepily, and then staring blankly into space, stock still.

>>35824767Bogans are only a short step up from the average Australian, in that they provide humour. The rest are just unfunny, irrelevant shits concerned about boat people and hoping they might someday matter in their corner of the globe.
>>35824758I BET YOU DON'T HAVE ALL THE BIRTHDAYS FOR ALL YOUR CHARACTERS! AND THE CURRENT DATE IN QUEST!
>>35824758> Better than it was an hour ago, yeah. > Everything's going good! We're going to have a birthday party for Wendy.NOT MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE
>>35824758>No party>not even a fukken cake or friends/family to celebrate it withTHAT'S FUCKING IT. WE'RE GOING BACK TO MUNICH AND MAKING WENDY A STEAKCAKE. WITH AS MANY STACKS RUSTY HAS LEFT.AND WE'RE INVITING RUSTY TOO.IT'S TIME TO GO FULL FUCKING BIRTHDAY. THE WHOLE BASE IS GONNA BIRTHDAY LIKE IT'S 1989 OR WE DIE TRYING
>>35824758 Everything's going good! We're going to have a birthday party for Wendy.PARTY PARTY
>>35824758>[x] Better than it was an hour ago, yeah. We're going to have a birthday party for Wendy.He strikers are Tornadoes right? A Cake in the shape of a Tornado or perhaps a L 85?
>>35824781This is the greatest thing ever.
>>35824849Malaysia stronk right?
>>35824758> Better than it was an hour ago, yeah.> Everything's going good! We're going to have a birthday party for Wendy.Except it's not just a "birthday", it's gonna be a full-on, balls to the wall, birthWEEK
>>35824758>>35824796make it so
>>35824758> Everything's going good! We're going to have a birthday party for Wendy.I swear to god, Ghost, if you screw us over on this...
>>35824849Keep on thinking that irrelevant anon.
>>35824871Nobody strong. Your neighborhood is a cesspool.
>>35824891>blowing out candles>AIR RAID>cake is bombed when we return
>>35824900Indeed it is, why do you think we hate all our neighbors except for our vassals the sheepfuckers?
>>35824784Don't you mean Grandma?
>>35824781What in the fuck was that?>>35824796Voting this up
Quick gifts for Wendy.Give her an extremely long scarf like from Doctor Who. Brits love Doctor Who!I wonder if their witches in Doctor who? Sarah Jane in Strikers?
>>35824853>WHOLE BASE IS GONNA BIRTHDAY LIKE IT'S 1989You fucking know it. The Russians will see us partying so hard they will defect to decadent capitalist West in the hope they will some day party half as hard as we did. The RAF witches will hear reports of our partying and will spit take tea everywhere while shitting bricks.
>>35824910And then every Russian that was part of this raid died.
>>35824946Proof that madness is the best muse
>>35824796fuck it. let's do it
>>35824946The best worst fanfiction ever to be conceived by us mere fuckspawn. https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2554200/1/HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
>>35825004We pick up Wendy, carry her on our shoulders making plane noises...ROFLMAO.jpegPut her down. Turn to Merlin. Her face is shrouded in shadows - but it shouldn't be. And there is a black and purple miasma writhing unnaturally around her body. We can hear ominous thunder from somewhere....Merlin yandere mode achievment unlocked
W E N D YAIFUWHY DOES IT FIT ARGH THE LETTERS TELL ME ABOUT THE LETTERS WHAT DO THE LETTERS MEAN?They mean Wendy is destined for Waifu.
>>35824967And the ones who thought it up, every person who had anything to do with setting it up and anyone who even did so much as cook a meal for them before the poor bastards all got killed.
>>35824910>Wendy sees the bombed out cake.>Carefully picks at a bit of icing stuck on the table.>"... happy birthday to me...">She's on her knees, crying the most she's ever cried in her life.>She's mumbling in between sobs about how we're the best friends she ever had.>It's an absolutely depressing night for Spellcaster. Morale at rock bottom.>Frank wakes up in the middle of the night to someone stooping over his bunk.>"Thank you... Frank.">"I love you so much."
>>35824849>implying bogans are better than the average australian
>>35825068No, you put Merlin on Wendy on fronk. Make a triplane.
>>35825100I will gut you
>>35825068Put one on each shoulder, P-82 Twin Mustang time!
>>35825147I love those.Free kills in War Thunder!
>>35825102They allowed straya quest to exist, which is more than the average aussie has ever given to the world.
>>35825196Normal aussies built a tractor beam. Bogans have not.
New witch RIO arrives. She's too big to put up on our shoulders and run around carrying her while making plane noisesThose feels bro
>>35825196But did a bogan write straya quest? I'm an average Aussie, aren't I?>off-topic shitposting
>>35825100what the fuck man
>>35825244>That feel when your new RIO is too big to carry around on your shoulders>That feel when your old RIO has grown up and you can't carry her on your shoulders. >That feel when you are too old to carry your RIO on your shoulders.
>>35825286Now imagine if we were talking after the war, after the undocumented gnome-cancer starts taking a 75 year old Frank's sight and thoughts away from him.Why haven't you called your grandparents today, anon?
>>35825327Because they're dead
>>35825286>that feels when you are carrying your RIO children in your shoulder
>>35825327My grandmother thinks I'm my father whenever I talk to her or see her, even if I've told her who I am not literally three minutes ago. It's depressing as fuck and while I love her, it's hard to handle.
>>35825327And on that guilt trip, I'm passing out. Night everyone. Thanks Ghost!
>>35825327>Why haven't you called your grandparents today, anon?Because Stalin had them executed.
>>35825395>>35825335Were you close/Do you feel close to them?
>>35825412Not really, never got to talk to them much
>>35825372You're doing a good thing, Anon. I'm here for you.
>>35825327Mine are long at peace, and can no longer be troubled by the problems of this world. I do miss them.
>>35825372I understand your situation. It happened to me as well.
>>35825412Never met them, they were killed long before I was born so I feel nothing about them really.
>>35825275Normal aussie would have had nothing to work with if it weren't for the bogans
>>35825327Because they're either dead, or they've gone so far down the road of dementia that they literally cannot speak or even eat on their own.Living till 110 doesn't mean much if you're no longer aware of anything around you.
My Mother's Mother was the last one. She died 12 years ago. Aunt and cousin made the funeral a fucking mockery. When Aunt died refused to attend funeral. Now a social pariah to whole family. Hardly ever get invited to holiday events now.
>>35825327http://danbooru.donmai.us/pools/8285Somehow I couldn't help but think of this. Considering Witches don't age as fast.
>>35825488That's like saying Hitler would have been a nice guy if not for the Jews...
>>35825504Assisted suicide should be an option. If it had been, my mother wouldn't still be suffering from the after effects of chemotherapy for her breast cancer two years out, and she could have gone out without suffering. Or, you know, legalize fucking weed so even if it is a placebo effect, she still feels better.
>>35825522Kancolle girls don't age because they're all rusting at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean
>>35825522Nagato best boat
>>35825542Funny, today at Public Speech class, someone made an informative speech about medical marijuana, and his mother also died due to the effects of chemotherapy
>>35825522They do, it's just that the oldest witch we've seen had some of her aging taken off.
>>35825547A whole new meaning to old and busted
>>35825611Chemotherapy: A ponzi scheme literally designed to kill, but leech money from thousands before they die.
>>35825624Tabitha's Grandmother aged very well.So did Georgette
>>35825127 >Wendy loves Frank, but she can see that everyone else in the squadron loves him too.>She can't bring herself to compete with them. She's just far too nice to try.>If they asked her if she wanted to try, she'd just politely turn them down, let them have him. >It's alright. After all, why would a person like Frank Bishop go for a girl like her?>Besides, they've fought with him far longer than she has. They've been through thick and thin together..>She's just an interloper, the new squad member.>It's alright. Everything will be alright, just as it has always been.>And yet, in her dreams, she cries out for Frank Bishop. She wants to be with him. >She dreams about sharing a small little cottage in the countryside with him.>No war. No fighting. No military. No witchcraft.>Just her and Frank Bishop, together.>She hates how everything is so damn unfair.>She was okay with her life before he came into it. She could deal with the subtle harassment, the whispers behind her back, the bullshit she had to deal with. It was tough, but she soldiered through it. Nothing mattered. She just had to get through another day.>Now she's got this feeling in her chest all the time, she can't focus on anything else. She's scared. Scared of losing everything.>Every time she tries to help Frank the only way she can, or show how much she appreciates him and his hard work, he keeps telling her to cut it out, it's fine, you're one of us now and all that.>He's so... nice to her.>She hates how she was treated in Britain. She hates all those bitches at the academy. She hates the Soviets for starting this stupid war, but most of all, she hates herself for being such a selfish-minded person right now.>Wendy Maloney loves Frank Bishop, and she doesn't know what to do about it.>>35825278I just want to hug Wendy and tenderly make love to her under the covers in the darkIt's a selfish wish.
>>35825424Well, that's sad in a way, but if you're okay, you're okay.>>35825432It's okay to miss them, man. Nice of you to remember them once in a while.>>35825468That's also kind of sad, but if you're okay, that's cool.>>35825504Man, that's fucked up. Sorry for your, and their loss.>>35825522The feels on the bus go round and round.
>>35825542I've seen what weed does to people and I would rather suffer than to have my mind slowly drained away by how it make you dumb permanently. >>35825591Sorry, but Tenryuu is the best ship girl.
>>35825666DEVIL BEGONEshe joins the harem
>>35825684>not knowing about the various strains of weed designed to be low in the shit that gets you high and be high in the shit that's medically sound>"abluh hoo hoo your/your family member's suffering is nothing!"Say that when you have to carry your mother to the fucking bathroom so she can try to take a piss, but can't, because her pancreas is eating itself, you fucking cunt.
>>35825697Wendy would refuse a harem. Nearly all of the girls would: they have more self respect than the sharkwitches do
>>35825666Satan plz. Group hug is the solution. Or group sex.
>>35825666I get so much mileage out of these in these threads
>>35825723Maybe. But sometimes I think they all just want to temporarily declare a truce, tie Frank to a bed and screw his brains out and then pretend like it didn't happen.
>>35825739Got your back, Anon.
[x] Everything's going good! We're going to have a birthday party for Wendy. “Everything's going good!” You say, taking a folding chair of your own and tossing Merlin a poncho liner from your flight bag as she takes a chair of her own. “We're going to have a birthday party for Wendy.”“A birthday party?” Katya echos. You nod. “A birthday party! It'll be fun.”Katya shrugs. “It will be fun, yes, but how are we to get the things for one? It is not as if we can just have cake and balloons and presents flown in with our next resupply.”“We've got a pair of P Sixty Sevens.” You say, grinning. “And I'm only on nights right now, so as long as I can wiggle the crew rest, I'm ok.”“We also are having excellent cooks.” Katya points out. “And it is more practical for them to be making the cake, and easier too.” “But what about presents!” You ask, then look at Wendy. “Wendy cover your ears.” She covers her ears, smiling as she does so. “What are we gonna get her anyway?” You ask. Katya shrugs. “It is your idea, Frank. It is your responsibility.” She looks sideways at you. “You will take responsibility, yes?” You should have had Merlin cover her ears.
>>35825770Sometimes you are an idiot.
>>35825787>you will take responsibility, yes?goddamnit ghost
>>35825770LOL!!!!Next morning Frank is like "WTF GAIS!!!"All the witches are like "You mad bro?"
>>35825666I think that Wendy sees Frank as an awesome older brother that's larger than life rather than a husbandu. It's true that since she entered the group her life just got more amazing but I kinda doubt she has much romantic feelings at the moment.
>>35825812That is one of the more factual statements I've heard in this thread.
>>35825787>She looks sideways at you. “You will take responsibility, yes?” Lewd woman.
>>35825723Funny how Sloidah and Icelady have had discussions to the contrary of your post.
And that's it for the night! I'd planned for another part of this, but about halfway in I realized it would do far better as a thread on it's own, so we'll do that next week; it makes planning a cinch. Speaking of, week after next, we may be taking a break- I'll be at fulda gap in Hickory for the weekend, and won't have any time to write. I may be able to pull out a preplanned oneshot with one of our other characters, but we'll see. Wendy's birthday party, btw, will partly be me making up for you guy's concerns about things you'd wanted to see last week, and didn't. maybe we can do that week after next, IDK. anyway, gents, that's all I've got, so till next time, cheers!
>>35825787Katya be trollin'
>>35825711In fact I help my dad to the bathroom due to the fact he's paralyzed from the waist down. My aunt had breast cancer but beat it. Another relative has stage 4 breast cancer and is fighting it. Smoking cigs, smoking weed, IT'S STILL SMOKING AND IT WILL GIVE YOU CANCER! Even with the low doses of the stuff that gets you high still does damage to you. I know all too well about it, seeing my cuz smoking that for years and I can tell the difference in him. Besides, I believe in natural supplements and other treatments.
>>35825327because the only one still living is currently living in my house.
>>35825849Thanks for running Ghost, fun thread.
>>35825854That's what vaporizers are for: all the benefits, none of the smoke
>>35825787>“It is your idea, Frank. It is your responsibility.” She looks sideways at you. “You will take responsibility, yes?”
>>35825854>natural supplementsHere's some advice, get ones with his absorbability.You wouldn't believe how much nutrients are wasted in some of them because they don't digest well.
>>35825854That's fine, that you believe in natural supplements and other treatments, but the fact of the matter is, marijuana helped my mother from not eating a bullet, and there were days I'd have helped her load the fucking gun, just so she wouldn't suffer.
>>35825849Thanks for running this Ghost.
>>35825849Thanks for the thread Ghost.
>>35825833Uh, no they haven't.
>>35825849Good run as always Ghost! Tonight was real fucking good.
>>35825883That and if we can only dump the GMOs out of out food supply, the cancer rate will plummet. That is what I fully believe. >>35825849Thanks Ghost!
>>35825849>I may be able to pull out a preplanned oneshot with one of our other characters, but we'll see.SHERK TWANZ THEY WERE
>>35825849The only thing I remember being an issue was that we didn't show Wendy and Katya a proper BBQ. What else did we miss last week?
>>35825923>Not Katya in Afghanistan
>>35825920>genetically modified organisms>not mentioning the prevalence of plastics>not mentioning shitty food filled with shitty preservativesC'mon, bro. KFC doesn't actually use chickens with three breasts, six wings, and twelve drumsticks.
>>35825923Slider oneshot? Or Goose, the silent witch ninja.
>>35825973Mav and Youngspawn?>>35825849Mav and Youngtits plz
>>35825920>we can only dump the GMOs out of out food supply, the cancer rate will plummetI've seen you post some stupid shit, fluff, but this takes it. There is no peer reviewed evidence for a direct correlation between cancer rates and GMOs. No GMOs have been found to cause any negative impacts on human health. Please stop being a Luddite.
>>35825965Yeah man, that's Church's.
>>35825965I was meaning about the pesticides genetically spliced into our wheat and grain crops. >>35825991Then way is it the rest of the world has banned it's use?
>>35825825Now you're making it even worse.Think of it this way. Now she has even more reasons to not want to lose him. And she's never had this kind of relationship with someone before. She can't pick up the cues correctly. She doesn't know what he wants out of her, or what she really wants from him.She's young, confused and more than a little out of her depth. And she has no idea what to do about it.
>>35825684>Not Yamato or delicious brown YamatoPLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEBS
>>35826016Because Monsanto is on par with Weyland-Yutani in terms of evil
>>35826016Because if there's one thing people hate more than anything else, it's change
>>35826016because everyone believes sensationalist bullshit like "GMOs are bad!" or "Every nuclear power plant is a nuclear bomb waiting to go off!"
>>35826016Because the rest of the world doesn't sell grain to Russia, India, China, Japan, Europe, and ship it for basically fucking free to Africa.As for the pesticides, would you rather have huge famines, because the insects the pesticides kill ate the crops?
>>35826041>Not HarunaPlebs, plebs everywhere.
>>35825991GMOs FEED PEOPLE (as long as they're not Monsato-branded seeds).DO YOU WANT PEOPLE TO DIE OF HUNGER.
>>35826016>Then way is it the rest of the world has banned it's use?aii
>>35825990I kind of want to see a Kostantina or Katya oneshot partially their more honest with their feeling with Frank.Also to see wha goes on in her head once he administers headpats
Thanks for running/putting up with our antics, Ghost. Cheers mate.
>>35825849Thanks for the run
>>35826016So you would prefer that super crops and genetically engineered super foods that are holding together countries in the third world should be done away with and millions should starve to death?
>>35826070I like Kaga
>>35825787>>35825849WOW LEWDThankee Goast, for running, and DON'T DIE, FAGGOT
>>35826042More of less. >>35826075>>35826048This world can feed it self just fine long before the GMOs, we have other ways to do it than rely on tons of poisons (that also gets into the water supply). BTW, the untested GMOs were started their use back in the 70's, and interestingly enough, kids with food allergies skyrocket as well. My brother can't eat a number of foods due to it. >>358261183rd world countries can feed themselves if they we not run by tin horn dictators and not being rocked by economic ruination or civil wars or both. Africa used to be able to feed it's self just fine. Then chaos took over and the farms there are just gone.
>>35826167Lots of countries could do lots of things if their problems magically vanished, yes
>>35826130And Chitose's drunk at 9 in the morning.But I LIKE YOU.>>35826167And if Africa did not get fucked over by the Colonial powers, or the Roman Empire, among other things. But hey, let's ignore the fact that the 16th-18th century happened, yes?
>>35826167>3rd world countries can feed themselves if they we not run by tin horn dictators and not being rocked by economic ruination or civil wars or both. Africa used to be able to feed it's self just fine. Then chaos took over and the farms there are just gone.Wow, just fucking wow you are stupid as fuck.Africa has always been the same, and no it can't feed itself, for the most part it is unsustainable barren wasteland.That you think it could survive on its own and thrive and that only recently chaos took over shows how little you know.You know what is the single thing that grows in Africa? Chaos, and its been growing for thousands of years.You heard it here first folks, Fluff thinks Africa should starve to death in its entirety just to make a stupid ecofanatical point.
>>35826167Do you understand the fact that there are seven billion (and growing fast,) people on this earth? That if a farmer in Africa can't farm because his land is all desert, he can't fucking farm?Do you know what kind of damage locusts can do to a crop of wheat, even with pesticides?You're literally pretending that world isn't a shit place out to kill us through any various methods, even other people.
>>35826167please I have only so much alcohol
>>35826167>This world can feed it self just fine long before the GMOsMost 2nd world countries and the entire existence of the 3rd world disprove you.As humanity grows and populates this planet more and more, we run out of space to grow food, and food to grow.You're special kind of mental illness would see humanity extinct within the next couple hundred years.
>>35826075ya know, and this is all I'll say on the subject, it bothers me when people will see a GMO- rice or whatever- See it works, does what it's supposed to, has better crop yields- and instead of accepting it as-is, they instead take generations and years to breed it naturally. that shit is double work for the same fucking end result and why? Nothing changes, the genetics are the exact same fucking thing anyway!
>>35826229It's all right anon, dirt farmers in Africa can grow you more with their desert crops.
>>35826211>not even mentioning that 90% of the arable land in Africa is owned by corporationTHREAD PLSHOW DO YOU FEED MILLIONS OF PEOPLE IF THEY HAVE TO BUY THEIR FOOD AT FUCK CRAZY PRICES THAT ONLY DEVELOPED COUNTRIES CAN AFFORD TO PAYOH RIGHT, THEY CAN'T.
>implying Nagato is' t the qt-estC'MON SON
>>35826265Get her away from my destroyers.She'll do unspeakably lewd things to them.
>>35826259B-buh Ghost.Muh organic fuds
>>35826264Do you have any idea how much the UN spends with other countries buying all that product from those corporations and giving away that food for free each year?
>>35826265Musashi a best. All others can go home.
>>35826167>untested GMOs were started their use back in the 70's, and interestingly enough, kids with food allergies skyrocket as wellCorrelation does not equal causation>3rd world countries can feed themselves if they were not run by tin horn dictators and not being rocked by economic ruination or civil wars or both.And none of that would happen in the first place if those countries actually had the resources, including arable farmland their population requires, but they don't, so they need to make the most of what they've got, and GMOs are very helpful in that regard>This world can feed it self just fine long before the GMOsTell that to the seven billion+ and growing population that is expanding evermore exponentially
>>35826288Them's fighting words Ghosthttps://danbooru.donmai.us/pools/8692
>>35826288>Not MutsuYep, your kimoi has grown to lethal levels
>>35826259There are people that will not eat GMO rice despite being incredibly more economical.Because it's yellow.Fucking. Yellow. I despair of humanity sometimes.
>>35826286No. I bet it'd be enough to cover America's growing debt, though.
>>35826316Rice is delicious. They're fucking idiots.
>>35826205>>35826211>>35826222>>35826244Wow, just wow. You must be from the public school system. Africa is a complicated place, but it CAN take care of it self if they were not fucked with one thing or another. We can grow crops a plenty in new and better ways than GMOs (that farmers have to buy exclusivly from a Corps and high prices and can't make seeds from them). Africa isn't a damn desert yet, 2/3s of it is still farmable land. Shit, even Bono (lead singer of U2) got it after years of just giving Africa food aid.
>>35826284are expensive as FUCK and really only good when it's shit you can't fucking find locally, like bishop's crown peppers WHY THE FUCK ARE THOSE SO HARD TO FIND MY GOD THEY'RE AMAZING TO COOK WITH WHAT THE FUCK WORLD. though I may be biased, there.
>>35826288Sorry boss, can't here you over thr sound of how wrong you are
>>35826331Dude seriously just shut your fucking mouth already, I've been to Africa and several of its more adventurous parts, and you are completely full of shit.Also, fucking lol at you thinking I'm from your shit countries retarded ass school system, go make up some more retarded conclusions.If you want to take the human race with you to a pathetic and pitiful grave, then go do it on another fucking planet.
>>35826335Are you telling me you named your MC's last name after a food you like?
>>35826331Okay? So you're going to attack my education because I'm saying something you don't like? You're fucking brilliant, man. I- I just can't even right now. Yeah, Africa is a complicated place. No, it's not complete wasteland (yet.) But if a farmer can't plow his fucking land because he doesn't own anything to plow it with, then he can't fucking farm. Either way, farmer can't farm.What's the most successful African civilization? Ancient Egypt. You wanna know why? Because the Nile ain't just the place you're standing in, motherfucker.
>>35826331>insults people by saying they must be from the public school system>can't even spell 'itself' properly.
>>35826331>Sahara to the north>Kalahari to the South>impenetrable jungle and dry savanna in the middle>2/3s of it is still farmable landWow, this is DSP levels of fail here
>>35826331>You must be from the public school system>private schoolIs this why you're such a narcissistic tripfag?
>>35826323http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/25/sunday-review/golden-rice-lifesaver.html?_r=1&Read and fucking despair.
>>35826377No, actually I discovered the pepper after starting the quest. Bought a pack of seeds on a whim, tried them out. they're damn good, amazing for chili and salsa, I'mma try them the next time I make dirty rice, in place of the bell pepper.
>>35826359SHE'S TRYAN TO LEWD MUH DESTROYERSGET HER AWAY FROM MY HAWAWAS, KAMINARIS, LADIES, DELICIOUS SPATS, NUINUIS AND YUKIHAMS (and Titty destroyers).
>>35826392Just burn down the forest and farm away, GAWD
>>35826403Forgot my image.
>>35826424>Implying mass slash and burn can solve the problem>Implying this won't cause worse ecological problems>ignoring all the desert and savannah that the rest of Africa is composed ofI'm sorry, who is oversimplifying and ignoring facts here again?
>>35825991>>35826051The thing with nuclear power and GMO foods is that we don't fully understand the long term ramifications of their use. This is nothing new, just look at things like leaded gasoline and agent orange. The work of a single chemist managed to accidentally the ozone layer in a geological millisecond, and children are still being born without eyes in Vietnam.Is nuclear power going to cause more problems than it solves? Are GMO foods going to give us all cancer? It's a question worth asking because if we get it wrong, we'll all be dead and gone by the time our grandchildren pay the price.>>35826292>untested GMOs were started their use back in the 70's, and interestingly enough, kids with food allergies skyrocket as well>Correlation does not equal causationIndeed it does not. GMOs might be a factor but it would only be one of MANY possible factors which are probably all at work. Things like Celiac's disease were a thing back in Roman times, it's possible that we are simply better at recognizing allergies today.>This world can feed it self just fine long before the GMOs>Tell that to the seven billion+ and growing population that is expanding evermore exponentiallyNo really we could, if food preservation technology was perfect that is. The sheer amount of food that gets thrown out uneaten every day (every HOUR even) would probably blow your mind. I've heard of figures as high as 40% in reference to specific cities or businesses like bakeries.
Wow, from Longstreet bashing to GMO.This thread took some weird turn.
>>35826494Longcunt is fluff tier terrible blight on the human race.
>>35826494Welcome to /tg/
>>35826492Citation needed on kids without eyes, mate.
>>35826504>>35826494yeah this pretty much.
>>35826492>Is nuclear power going to cause more problems than it solves?Of for fucks sake Fluff is multiplying.It's time for a cull.
>>35826494I was about to say the same thing, but ya beat me to it
>>35826517A weird turn TO POOPING
>>35826503You're trying way too hard, anon.
>>35826492>No really we could, if food preservation technology was perfect that is. The sheer amount of food that gets thrown out uneaten every day (every HOUR even) would probably blow your mind. I've heard of figures as high as 40% in reference to specific cities or businesses like bakeries.I've seen it.The largest bakery in our city that supplies most of our supermarts collects back unsold bread which is donated to local charitable organisations and hospitals.It's a fucking mountain of bread.
>>35826424Close! There is many farm field that went fallow from disuse that can be put back into service. Drill wells to get water as well. >>35826401Wrong again. >>35826376Going on a hunting trip don't count anon. >>35826492This Anon get's it well enough for me. The eye problem is more of problem down under. Kids there are by law have to wear hats just to protect them due to the ozone hole. >>35826539Also there are many farmers who are paid to NOT FARM AT ALL! It drives me crazy at how dumb our government can be at this.
>>35826492Is nuclear power going to cause more problems than it solves? Not really, safety protocols are tighter than Merlin and Fronk. The main reason it's not more widely adopted is that, like school shootings, the media has exaggerated the threatHell, France gets around 70% of it's power from fission plants, and when was the last time you heard about a French reactor leak?
>>35826587Bbbut muh atomz
I don't know whether GMO could help third world food problem.But as a 3rd world citizen, i can say before giving our farmer some fancy rice variants, commitment from government to subsidize them could really help.
>>35826587Fukushima was the dumbest shit ever, fucking Japan. If anyone in the management of that place had two brain cells to rub together it never would've happened.
>>35826587More people die from radiation due to coal plants than from nuclear power plantsLiving near a coal plant gives you as much background radiation as living near a nuclear plantDeaths from nuclear power, scaled to how much power is provided, are orders of magnitude lower than other forms of energy, including solar and wind. This is including from uranium mining.
>>35826510Just google "agent orange no eyes". That's a can of nightmares I don't want to open again, but you go ahead.>>35826520No system is perfect. People bill wind farms as this amazing source of green energy with no environmental impact at all. They tend to gloss over the fact that a lot of wind turbines are surrounded by a carpet of dead birds and bats.
>>35826492Btw, I do like nuclear power, just the cutting edge fusion power over the fission power we have now. The fusion won't produce deadly waste that will hang around for ages to come nor melt down.
>>35826624But no one cares because muh china syndrome and wild fearmongering.
>>35826492>we don't understand the long term ramifications of nuclear powerAfter 60+ years of its use? I'd like to say we got it pretty down at this point. People like to say "b-but Chernobyl/Three Mile Island/Fukushima!" But what? There's been three major accidents in the 60+ years of its use and all three of those can and have been pinned on human error or manufacturing faults.If you build it right and run it right, hey, there's no danger! The only issue is the nuclear waste and where to put it, and due to poor business practices and mishandling there's further stigma around nuclear waste, but yet again, people who aren't shitheads aren't going to be dumping it in unsecured areas. And we're even inventing ways of using that nuclear waste in further energy production!All it is is stigma.
>>35825833It wasn't anything I've written, if you're wondering.
>>35826610And the citizens of Japan VOTED the party that created that debacle back to power.HEY LDP, HOW'S SCAMMING THE HELL OUT OF JAPAN DOING FOR YOU.
>>35826573>Going on a hunting trip don't count anon.So being sent in by the UN to try and help things doesn't count?Yeah fuck you, go fellate a shotgun.
>>35826647That is true, and it is far more cleaner to run them than coal power plants, yet I still want use to make the more effective and cleaner Fusion plants if we can.
>>35826573>Kids there are by law have to wear hats just to protect them due to the ozone hole.What.No seriously, you're just making up stupid shit now.
>>35826679>UN>Helping anyonepick one.
>>35826658Oh hohohohoJust wait until you see thishttp://www.reuters.com/article/2013/12/30/us-fukushima-workers-idUSBRE9BT00520131230
>>35826573>The eye problem is more of problem down under. Kids there are by law have to wear hats just to protect them due to the ozone hole.PFTHAHAHAHAHAHAHAOh please please keep on talking, someone write this shit down it's hilarious the falsehoods he's trying to believe
>>35826680You mean the experimental and stupidly expensive fusion plants that don't come out energy positive?/Those/ fusion plants?
>>35826645MUH CHINAMUH IPHONESMUH CONTAMINATED FOODS...and China's revving up nuclear power plant research AND making massive inroads into renewable energy.>>35826647Chernobyl was hubris. Fukushima was poor planning and lack of readiness caused by TEPCO and the LDP being too busy fucking each other to notice.And Three Mile Island? NO ONE DIED. IT WAS AMAZING. EVERYONE KNEW WHAT TO DO AND DEALT WITH IT PROPERLY.(Btw, I am from Singapore and I had to hunt down all muh information. From Cracked, mostly, but lelcracked so)
>>35826573>The eye problem is more of problem down under. Kids there are by law have to wear hats just to protect them due to the ozone hole.You're serious.Holy. Fucking. Shit. You're serious.
>>35826573>The eye problem is more of problem down under. Kids there are by law have to wear hats just to protect them due to the ozone hole. Yes, tell me more about my country
The main problem with GMOs is that it's still a recent thing and not fully understood, leading to people assuming the worst because of our fear of the unknown, and Mosanto is a company that gives EA, HSBC, and Bank of America a run for their money in terms of sheer dickishness.Given a couple more decades, and some company that can into PR, and GMOs could very well be a universal thing.
>>35826630>No system is perfect.No fucking shit, but putting the environment and petty principles above humanities continued existence is a crime worthy of defenestration from the planet.
>>35826704Already read that.Man, that's kinda messed up.But less of that and more lewd shipsluts
>>35826652I wasn't, I know which of Ghost's posts said conversation was in though Schicken lady was in it instead of Slider like that anon said.The anon he was responding to just willfully forgot what Ghost himself had wrote and was trying to project his own thoughts as canon
>>35826733To debunk, the high rate of sunburn and skin cancer in Australia isn't because of an ozone hole, it's because a fuckload of pale englishmen moved to one of the sunniest places on the planet and decided to put a country there
>>35826736>GMOs could very well be a universal thing.Properly speaking, they already are.All cultivated, farmed foodstuffs are genetically modified - just the slow, old-fashioned way of manual cultivation and breeding specific strains.Same results, much simpler and faster execution.
>>35826730>>35826712>>35826733http://blog.coolibar.com/elementary-schools-consider-no-hat-no-play-policy/http://www.vitamindwiki.com/%22No+hat,+no+play%22+in+Australia+primary+schoolshttp://www.sunsmart.com.au/about/faqssome info herehttp://www.who.int/uv/publications/en/sunprotschools.pdfWant more?
>>35826775I'm genuinely curious now, because I personally can't remember the conversation.
>>35826788So basically, everything try to fuck you up in Aussie.
>>35826810I don't care how many kooks you pull out of the fucking internet, there was no such fucking thing during my six years of living there.
>>35826813here, want to add:And that, including your internet speed.
>>35826717Whats more the fukushima reactor was of an older design.The newer generation ones at the fukushima dainii and onagawa reactors shut down properly following the tsunami.
>>35826810>Want more?No thanks, because instead of being some retarded armchair general I actually live here.So why don't you go derail some other quest or better yet, do humanity a favor and remove yourself from the gene pool.
>>35826810>implying it isn't because Australia is just that fucking merciless with the sunYeah, I'll take>>35826788's word, because people who actually live there tend to know what's up
And fluff singlehandedly shits up another thread, good thing Ghost was already finished for today.
>>35826822I will ad: There has never been any such thing in my thirty years of living there.There have been aggressive campaigns in favour of it, yes; and individual schools implementing policies for it; no actual legislation.tl;dr no, Kids are not required by law to wear hats, and no it is not because of the fucking ozone hole. Hats have always been a thing here in schools, because as long as people have been here it's basically like the Sahara in summer country-wide.
>>35826788Let's not forget that those pale englishmen do everything they can to expose themselves to the sun whenever they can.From what my sister told me the few times she's been there Bondi Beach was packed all the time.
>>35826810It's funny how you ignore that states in your own country, and several in europe, the middle east and south america also take similar actions.Because sunburn is not magically only targeting a single place on the planet...
>>35826810>all this is because of an ozone hole>sun awareness hasn't been a thing since my grandparents were kidsSun awareness has been a thing since my grandparents were kids
>>35826894I guess that's why the PE department in my school made it a point to offer free sunscreen to us whenever we went outside amirite?
>>35826929I cannot tell whether you're agreeing with him or trying to mock him.
>>35826792Well assuming you are only shifting genes within the same species of organism. That's just breeding, only faster than the "shotgun in the dark" process humans have used for centuries.The weirdness comes from things like taking cold-resistance genes out of arctic ice worms and splicing them into strawberries. Or whatever weird things they were doing that I read about in National Geographic, I don't remember exactly.... what was this thread about again?
>>35826978Agreeing, the thing I'm trying to mock is the assertion that there is no sun awareness.Jesus Christ Australia is not populated by retards.
>>35826990>Well assuming you are only shifting genes within the same species of organism.I think you're trying to say cross-breeding within the same *Kingdom*.Because plants have had inter-species hybridization (and animals, too) naturally since forever.
>>35826990First it was about witches, then bitches, then GMOs, and now it's about Australia's sun being about as merciful as Australia itselfIt's /tg/, this shit is normal
>>35826990How Musashi is the best shipslut
>>35826840The hell you bitching about? The quest have been long over before this started. The anons can do what ever they want after the QM calls it.
>>35827013more like GM HOs amirite
>>35826703Go fuck yourself, fluff. They can't stop wars for shit, and they might not be the most efficient aid organization out there, but the UN on the whole does more than probably anyone else to actually improve the quality of life in impoverished regions on a global scale. Little things like ways to clean drinking water or basic education can go a very long way.
>>35826994The assertion that there was no sun awareness before we found out there were holes in the ozone layer
>>35827013I forgot to mention the feels, shipshipping, and, medical marijuana, and birthday planningagain, /tg/
>>35827032Then I'll go to the actual Australians here to answer that.
>>35827047You replied to one...
>>35827059Oh shit, I thought I was replying to Starshadow for some reason.My bad.
>>35826822>>35826840>>35826854>>35826883Most people don't know who are their own representative in their government. Most people know who the big star on the Telly or the net than who runs the government. Fluff might be right and not know it. Government pass all sorts of laws but never enforce them. Case in point.http://www.dumblaws.com/laws/international/australia
>>35827047>>35827032>>35826994>>35826894START USING FULL AND PROPER SENTENCES YOU KNOBS, IT IS REALLY HARD TO FOLLOW WHAT YOU ARE SAYING
>>35827013I fucking love this board. Don't ever change /tg/.Except you, fluff.
>>35827077>actually believing half the shit on thathahahahahaha
>>35827077I sure hope you have a better source than that.Like an actual government website.
>>35827093Yup, never change. its funny as hell (and somewhat interesting as well)
>>35827077You do realise most of the stuff on that website is a joke right?But please, keep on propagating those stupid myths.
>>35827077As an Australian who is eminently aware of his laws and political representatives, I can safely point out that most of those are bogus, with a select few either limited to a defunct administrative region or have very, very good reasons.The whale one, for instance, is in consideration because people have been graffitiing beached whales lately, in addition to cutting bits off of them "to see what all the whale meat fuss the Japs are making is about". And proceed to get sick because it's rotting whale meat you morons.And some areas get a *lot* of beached whales. Like, dozens annually.
>>35827114Like that one time a GM's telling of his sleep-deprivation-inspired magical realm became an argument over how much of Rome's advances originated in the works of other cultures
To all Aussie here... isn;t it, like, 3-4 PM down there now? Don't tell me you all are posting from your workplace.
>>35827124normally, I'd make fun of the people cutting bits off beached whale and eating it. but I live in the american south, and have actually met people who make roadkill stew, so.... can we call it even?
>>35827144>roadkill stewyjust y
>>35827124Not to mention the whales might explode...
>>35827142It's 5pm here; 3PM in Western Australia and ~5:30/6 in the east coast.And yes I am posting from work.
>>35827078THESE ARE PROPER SENTENCES MATE>>35827142what workplace
>>35827144The trick to eating roadkill is making sure it's fresh. I met a couple of dudes once who ran over a deer once that jumped out in front of their car. They slit it's throat, took it home and butchered it, and ate the entire thing in one sitting after smoking some weed and getting the munchies. Didn't get one upset stomach out of any of them, although to be fair the weed may have helped with that.

>>35827213Its okay, nobody will judge you for posting from workplace....maybe except your boss.
>>35827162It's nearly 8pm here in New Zealand.
>>35827124I remember how in QLD they posted notices to not attempt to blow up whale carcasses with TNT after one town tried it with a couple hundred kg's of explosive, and it rained tons of whale meat over the town...
>>35827227>Dumb laws are all over the place.All over the place including the rest of the world, I mean seriously look at Sweden and some of the stupid shit in America.
>>35827011Right kingdom. I can never remember the full sequence, Domain, Kingdom, Phylum something something. Ages ago my science teacher had this little song that was supposed to help you remember the proper order and had words that matched with the first letters. Hell if I can remember THAT but I think it had something to do with kings and socks.>>35827124>>35827144>exploding whale carcassesFuck, now I keep remembering that gif of the whale autopsy.I can't imagine why people would try to eat it. Reminds me a bit of all those surstromming videos of people opening the can and finding milky white sewage inside. LOL SWEDES EAT THIS SHIT THROWING UP ON CAMERA IS FUNNY RIGHT GAIS? No you idiots, it looks like sewage because it's been shipped across the ocean, it's probably expired, you didn't store it properly and you opened it underwater.>>35827151I know they salvage moose roadkill in alaska and give the meat to the food bank. Really as long as the animal is fresh and the impact didn't rupture the bowels and contaminate everything it's not any different from other game meat.
>>35827144I have eaten 'possom before. But that was from a freshly hunted one and not road kill. They are not bad if you prep and cook them right.
>>35827233The joke was that I don't work
>>35827286Oh Jesus Christ the cancer agreed with me someone pass the bleach.
>>35827215Yeah, exactly. It sounds a lot worse than it is- I mean, yes, it is roadkill, but it's not like they find a week old rotting lump of meat and fur and go "Damn billy bob dat look lak gud eatin chuck it up thurr in tha truck". Usually it's just deer you lose some of the meat on because motor vehicles ain't the best hunting tools in ever, and damage part of it.
>>35827322That and getting glass and plastic fragments in the meat is a bad thing too.
>>35827337nah. builds character
>>35827378Now you make me imagines that Pa Bishop at one points cook one of roadkills they found for his children.
>>35827298Way ahead of you bud.
>>35827227Again; a ton of those are fake, though I do spot a bunch that are hilariously true.Doesn't change the original point, however; that there is no law requiring kids to wear hats in any context; and never has been.
>>35827378Ghost, I can see that, but my uncle taught me, being able to remove the guts, and more importantly removing the bladder with out nicking them builds character. So does being a Tripfag in here
>>35827481>The joke---->Your head
>>35827465I think I see the misunderstanding here. The postings often say 'Mandate' and I guess they are just taken as strong suggestions down under. But up in the US, the term 'Mandate' often are understood as a law or regulation put into place by the president or the government bureaucracy. Just saying.
>>35827535I'm just going to point out I can't find the word "mandate" in any of the links the cancer posted, the two blog-type things misrepresent the "requirement" for wearing hats, and the WHO/SunSmart links are basically just saying "This is a good idea, guize".Regardless, while there *are* rules put in place by individual schools and such; that could be what people are seeing and assuming is law, especially since the rules generally follow the Sunsmart Guidelines to a tee.Plus; places like sunsmart are NGOs, and can only make suggestions or recommendation; they can't actually implement or enforce any actual rules. That said most do follow their suggestions because they are damn sensible guidelines.
>>35827535"Mandate" is not an official US legal term.
