There's a lot more variety with Japanese VAs, so you still get that feeling of "Oh, it's what-her-face! Awesome!"

And I've found that a lot more of them have range and can sound different, while a good amount of Funi VAs pretty much only play one type of character

Exactly this. A lot of that has to do with the fact that seiyuu are trained specifically for this, in actual voice acting schools. A lot of dub actors are just failed (rude way to say it) stage or tv/film actors that turned to voice acting as a last resort.

You got that flipped. Nixon started the "War on Drugs" as an excuse to crack down on minorities and hippies. The racism came first.

Fine. I'll rephrase. The police in the US are the militarized arm of institutional racism and class divide in the US, where the legal system then serves to exacerbates it. Drug laws are a symptom, not a cause here in the US.

Your thing is also probably correct. I'm sure that other countries don't have jackbooted thugs that have "You're Fucked" engraved on their service weapon while they execute a terrified and confused man or immediately assume a man is a "threat" for the color of their skin and then are exonerated time after time for murdering in cold bold. Most first world nations manage not to have two legal systems for the poor and the rich.

This place is so fucking broken and I'm so tired. Sorry to dump that on you; I needed to vent.

That’s not why Putin is popular. He made disappear like a few dozen people out of a country of 140 million.

Oh, ok, that's fine then.

Just like a parent with a kid that refuses to grow up and mooches off of them, sometimes the solution is to stop enabling the behavior.

“But my baby is 25 and hasn’t ever gotten a job what will he do???” He’ll figure it out.

There are steps society can take. Financial literacy is actually way more important than a lot of other subjects. Taking steps to teach people how to delay gratification is also big.

see more

Do you think that the families barely getting by with help are suddenly going to be able to succeed if you "stop enabling that behavior"? That sounds like some social Darwinism garbage.

There are a range of solutions that could help. My favorites are:

  1. Charter schools, provide flat out bribes to parents for positive behavior and strong grades of their kids. Being educated is important.

  2. Get tough on real crime (theft, rape, robbery, murder, assault) and stop wasting resources on things that shouldn’t even be crimes (drug use, prostitution). It can be pretty fucking defeating to save up only to get robbed or assaulted and then get stuck with a hospital bill or have to replace things.

  3. Set a hard time limits on being on government assistance.

  4. As a last resort take children away from parents who can’t provide for them even after years of government help. The last one is the most jarring and should be last resort.

see more

We have the largest prison population in the world; how much tougher on crime can we get?

I've spent nearly 4 years locked up and if I wasn't given a helping hand by a government program, I probably never would have turned my life around. A program, I might add, continues to get its budget slashed again and again because who cares about giving under privileged young adults trade school when you can get a couple dollars back on your taxes?

If this was a /r/JUSTNOMIL story, Harry would be the enabler of his dad's narcissism. Not having Mary Jane's back shows he normalizes this behavior because growing up under his dad's abusiveness has skewed his baseline for 'normal'. Mary Jane is pissed because Harry can't set boundaries with his dad.

Harry is the one who needs to see a therapist not Mary Jane.

If you kind of want context as to why Dick is in the Batman costume, check out Battle for the Cowl and then Grant Morrison's run of Batman & Robin.

You rotate the character's legs and the bike moves. They had this in Arma II and IIRC Arma Flashpoint 15 years ago.

Hell if they used the basic flight model from Arma II and gave the source to a high school modder, they'd have Hueys in a week.

Operation Flashpoint was a different game series. ArmA is just the spiritual successor. I'm pretty sure they did rerelease Operation Flashpoint built in the ArmA engine a couple years back, though.

Source: played so very much Operation Flashpoint.

As a long time Assassins Creed fan, I learned that I'm a masochist. They're not great games, the stories are not that interesting, and the controls are barely useable. But I'm gonna keep on playing them if they keep releasing them.

The last one I really, really enjoyed was Black Flag and that was barely an AC game. I just lost interest in both Unity and Syndicate and I haven't played Origin (although, I've heard it's pretty good).

True, but saying living here is absolutely unbearable isn't exactly fair either. There are a lot of benefits to living in this country that we just take for granted.

USA is pretty bad when it comes to other first world countries, but it's nowhere near the nightmare some people here make it out to be, and that's coming from someone who had to live on minimum wag for 2 years cleaning up a restaurant.

I'm sure that thought will keep the people starving to death on the streets tonight happy.

I've been working since I was 16 and am 25 now, so this is only 9 years to work with, but in that time I've made only 1 work friend I would have considered to truly be a friend of mine...

...so I thought, at least. He quit his job and moved to California to live closer to family and unfriended me and all of his coworkers on Facebook and never responded to another text after that day. His time here (Wisconsin) was not the best. He had a bad breakup and no other particularly good memories other than that relationship, so I understand the desire to start fresh and leave it all behind, but it absolutely bummed me out to realize I meant so little to him when I thought so highly of him myself.

Are you being intentionally ironic?

Nixon was arguably better than Bush, however. Nixon created the EPA, and introduced the Clean Air Act. Bush meanwhile, started a legally questionable law, squandering trillions, and whose tax cuts saw American debt rise considerably during his tenure. Add in the fact he ended his presidency with the worst recession in seven decades, along with the Patriot Act.

Nixon also may have fucked with the peace talks in Vietnam in 1968 to sabotage LBJ's reelection and started the War on Drugs to target black people and hippies.
