Weather forecast for the next couple of days.... :sad:

Glad to hear you're alright. If you haven't had flooding yet, you shouldn't at all. I was supposed to fly in yesterday, but had to get a hotel room and reschedule for San Antonio tonight. Now I'm stuck in Newark of all places for half a day.

I was just in Houston at the end of June... Stay safe out there Zim! Has anyone heard from Raithos? He is also in that area.

Also, remember that video I posted on the previous page from a couple weeks ago? Well guess what it was about? Tropical Storms and hurricane systems, and it warned about massive storms that were brewing and could go potentially any where in the coming weeks. Safe to say that prediction was correct, I forgot about that until now when I looked at it, crazy crazy stuff the weather world wide has been fucked this year.

edit - Found an interesting follow up video that was just released from the same YT channel about all the crazy weather and happenings that have taken place just in the month of August 2017 all over the world. Cant help but feel like some how its all connected there have been HUGE displacements of water like has never been seen before. Brazil and Frances shores receding now all this water dumped in texas, wtf is going on?

Here's a interesting video speculating how they might be manipulate the weather. Keep in mind you're now venturing into tin foil hat territory meaning most folks in this forum and in real life will laugh at it.

Man I haven't been on here in couples months. Tried to take a break from forums and social media as much as I could, all the political stuff was getting out of hand, and it hasn't gotten any better in my time gone lol. But with recent events I'm back.

The hurricane has wrecked Houston bad. My area got hit pretty hard. I'm safe, but I've been flooded in for four days now, thankfully haven't lost power for more than a couple hours at a time. A couple family members had to be evacuated from their homes after their neighborhoods took on massive amounts of flooding. These are some photos I found online of the freeway less than a mile from my home. The same exit I take to go home each day from work. Crazy to see it underwater!

We haven't lost any power so far and none of our streets were ever flooded.

Glad to hear you guys are safe! I was just there at the beginning of June working Free Press Festival and really got to know the city and drove around a good bit too. Its hard to imagine that place over come with water the way it is, that storm was unreal. My other friends and co-wrokers in the area seem to be ok, but a lot of the photos and stories coming from it are tough to take in.

Will China sell USA debt, or will they stop a fucking country that their only purpouse was excerting geopolitical power over USA ?

TBH, China should do both, but they'll get a strike in revenue they can't hold their population.

IT'll hurt USA bad, but will make putin part of the new goverment.

So in most approachs, it's a race war to see who NEUTRALIZES NK ? And there, I see China with the upperhand.

While they're not still doing neo-colonism, this is quite a good bet against USA cultural hegemony.

Huge fan of the original Blade of the Immortal comic. And I tend to like Takashi Miike's "quickly-made, lower-budget, don't-give-a-damn-if-it's-silly" brand of filmmaking...
...so why am I so put off by the way this new Blade of the Immortal movie looks?

Ick.
I guess mixing chocolate and peanut butter isn't always a good thing.
The original Immortal comic had a cool semi-realistic, yet still stylish kind of groove to it. Something weirdly classy despite the level of violence, due in large part to the visual acuity of Hiroaki Samura's pencil-and-ink style. It felt big, edgy, gripping, and adult. A movie version deserves to be in the hands of someone who plans their movies very carefully, not a "throw it at the wall and see what sticks" kind of director like Miike.
But no, now we've got a Manji who doesn't even have a fucking manji symbol on his back because "oh noes, ruined international appeal!" And his scar makeup looks like utter shit. And the whole production looks like a tv movie, just with an excess of gore.
No thanks to all that. I'll stick to the comics.
