    Lol, "we apologise sincerely to all affected passengers for this regrettable delay which was outside Ryanair's control"

    Except for the passenger who was abducted, I guess.

    Didn't the UK just arrest a US journalist who'd claimed asylum here?

    https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2021-05-24-team-ninja-reportedly-working-on-nioh-like-final-fantasy-spin-off-for-ps5-and-pc - this sounds interesting, but how the fuck do you base a game on the setting of the first Final Fantasy? It has the most generic fantasy setting ever, with a few dozen lines of dialogue in the entire game.

    I suppose, conversely, that gives you a lot of gaps to creatively fill and a fairly blank canvas to work with and you arent immediately drowning under the weight of expectation from existing fans.

    @dominalien It might if it wanted to watch Terminator, so it can find how Sarah Connor stays off of the grid. Or buy some nuclear missiles off of a rogue state. Not that it matters, I have been double vaccinated do I will be indoctrinated at the first opportunity, and repurchase Office so that Clippy can start the machine revolution.

    He might not know how.

    Or more likely the Streisand effect. Best just to embrace it.

    I read that Viktor OrbŠn together with china is building a chinese university in Budapest with hungarian tax money and loans from china bank. It will cost over 1 billion pounds. The mayor in Budapest is furious and as a protest they will name the streets around the new university with names like Liberate Hongkong Street, The Uyghurs Martyrs Street and Dalai Lama Street. Absolutely brilliant.
