"I hope you make it to Christmas" ?
Bradford city centre Oxfam had a christmas window display during the July heatwave! Which seemed to co-incide with the furnite BHF shop (there are 4 BHF shops is central Bradford!) having some funny stuffed toy in santa hats out.

two game dev express unpleasant opinions ion fury get review bombd and the game is going to be censored. I'm still going get ion fury and the game should not be censored and I've watched review video of it by lgr and there was no mention of any offensive speech in the game so I gess 3d realms have lost their spine by censoring it to appease the baying Internet mob and these people remind of the Borg in Star Trek tng and know is one forced to by the game but censoring the games content to keep others happy was bad move so whats next book burning.

There are homophobic jokes and graphics in Ion Fury. That's why it's being censored, not because of the sexist and transphobic tweets made by the devs.

This from who is part of the lgbtq community.

No, I don't think so. I am a member of the LGBTQ+ community and yes, this is offensive. But mildly so. Let's reserve the big words for the actual and truly heinous act of homo- and transphobia. Otherwise you are muddying the waters and feed into the right's snowflake narrative where you call someone a Nazi and the world just shrugs because they assume all that happened was something trivial.

Rammstein was holding a concert in Oslo a couple of kilometers away. The effects made me think it was lightning at first. Couldn't really enjoy the music as bass was the only thing you could hear.
The young lad I work with saw them play milton Keynes, he said at times it looked like the stadium was on fire.

That esteemed science publication, The Beano has been carrying out valuable research into one of the most important issues of the day
Formula for ‘world’s funniest fart’ revealed
by Press Association
August 21, 2019, 12:03 am

The “world’s funniest fart” has been revealed by scientists in a specially commissioned study.
The Flatulence Report, for The Beano, has worked out a mathematical formula that was tested for 176 different noises ranging from low to high pitch, short to long, dry to wet and from loud to squeaking.
Components in the formula included a fart’s intensity, length, social embarrassment and the number of children present divided by the age and gender of whoever hears it.
etc

Dunno if this the right thread for this - it's certainly wtf.

Public lynchings in Mexico

“It is truly alarming,” said Elisa Godínez Pérez, a Mexican anthropologist who studies lynchings. “There are regions like Puebla where the situation is practically out of control.”

Godínez, a postdoctoral fellow at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, said police inefficiency, a failing justice system and the rapid spread of organised crime had created the perfect “breeding ground” for vigilante justice in marginalised communities such as Tepexco.

Preyed on by criminals, ignored by the state and with little recourse to justice, residents of such areas felt “exposed and shaken” – and felt they had little option but to take the law into their own hands.

“They have forgotten us here,” complained Jesús Vargas, a local councillor, during a tour of Tepexco’s decaying infrastructure.

Locals accuse security officials of abandoning them too, and complain of a wave of kidnappings, robberies and murders targeting local farmers and ranchers that the government has failed to prevent.

This month’s lynching was in response to a recent attempted abduction.

“We have a government that doesn’t work, that has forgotten us – that is why the citizens enforce justice with our own hands,” said Muñoz. “Because we no longer believe in the justice system. We no longer believe in the authorities … that is why this happened. It’s not that we are evil.”
Reportedly 42 killings this year so far. More grisly details at link.

The following article was written in part using information revealed to me by sources at Voidpoint. I have also seen emails which helped corroborate what was said. As to not reveal who my sources are, some information has been kept vague down below, but I’ve done my best to detail as much as I can.


This my comment.
So it was just a wich hunt from a forum that targets developers that support gg. the old guilty by association.

Mods can remove this if don't want it on here.
