That glorious tiger tatoo is mesmerising

I saw the Crystal and thought that it was done really well. Then came the tiger's face...

This is fucking beautiful.

I thought the soap was the tattoo at first and I was like, wow that's really realistic looking, but a weird tattoo to get.

Anyone who says otherwise is lion.

No, the dudes way to slow wiping is.

I'm more impressed with the leg endurance

I think he's my upstairs neighbor.

There're some really exceptional dancing techniques in this world... The popped into my head when i saw the OP.

Yeah dude everything about it is like mesmerizing, check out the way she moves her head too

Unfortunately TSA won't let you bring Doomhammer on a plane...

What if the weapon belonged to Alliance Generals instead? Is this a hammer problem, or a Horde problem?

Now we're not saying The Skyfire was a terrorist act, buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut

Well, you'll have to finish pathfinder part two before you can board the plane as it is. Rules are rules.

Do we need to talk about Theramore?

"Under God" should be removed from the Pledge of Allegiance

"Under God" should be removed from the Pledge of Allegiance

EDIT - This post isn't about me being able to ignore the pledge (with I obviously can and do now), but about whether these things should exist in our society at all, along with other non-secular text such as "in god we trust" on our currency.

I'm an atheist and I live in the United States. I honestly don't know why "Under God" is still in the pledge of allegiance and I feel like it's disregarding the beliefs of people who aren't religious.

Every time I have to say this pledge it feels like others are forcing beliefs on me that I don't believe or live by.

It's the 21st century and now more than ever there needs to be a better separation of church and state, and as of now I feel like there shouldn't be anything religious (as to respect the beliefs of all people) as this is a country that is supposed to be secular and not force religion down those that aren't religious. What do you guys think?

A lawsuit currently in the works to remove In God We Trust from money, which is the first step

From the UK and the whole idea of a pledge of allegiance is just as stupid to me as buying wholesale into a particular religion.

By the vagaries of a genetic lottery you end born in a particular country and pledge allegiance to it? Just like you end up randomly indoctrinated by whichever religion of the family you happen to be born into. I mean what if your country is a dick a lot of the time and you've pledged allegiance to it?

Why not pledge allegiance to a moral code, rather than a country?

Also I understand the whole 'separation of church and state' in principle but frankly that constitutional protection doesn't really seem to have done you any good. Religion seems utterly pervasive in all walks of American life.

I'd feel just a persecuted having to say the pledge as having to say the 'under god' bit.

we have been fighting it for decades, I don't expect this supreme court to do it now.

The pledge as a whole needs to be abandoned. But neither is going to happen anytime soon.

The coloured version. Looking at pictures from Mars makes me feel happy. Maybe it's because that we have a rover on an entirely different planet clicking pictures and doing stuff which just goes to show how far mankind has come in the recent years. Or simply because they are images of an entirely different and unexplored world. Pictures of places miles and miles away in the space never fail to amuse me.

Yes, because their atmosphere has a different composition than ours, and therefore light refracts differently when it passes through it, thus the different colors. (That's an explanation worthy of /sub/explainlikeimfive I believe)

The robots presumably? Mars is after all the only known planet inhabited entirely by robots.

Edit - if you were thinking of responding with some futurama quote about warehouses, note that like five people have done it already.

Sunsets are blue on Mars?

The ideal playlist.

Why is there a song called "I've got boxes full Pepe"

Just move past it

I can hear Charlie's voice, "carol carrooll"

You need a cigarette. Barney...

I made a thing, any Dead Space fans here?

One of the best franchises ever. This is beautiful.

No but it had AMAZING moments. In co-op one of the side missions [spoiler]required some exploration of a derelict ship. But because Isaac Carver was going crazy and Isaac (your friend playing) wasn't, you both were seeing slightly different things. And when I played over the internet with friends it was CRAZY to be disagreeing about what we are seeing. My buddy had to send me a pic of what was on his screen.[/spoiler]

It's too bad the developer couldn't expand on that like they wanted. But it was still fantastic. It had great moments elsewhere too but that one was mind blowing. DS3 was the weakest, but it is still a great game when you overlook the micro transactions and OP weapon customization.

Edit: I guess I don't know how to spoiler so I just bolded them.

God I miss that game. I wish they would make more.

Last one was not the best.

Please don't let that man down. Seeing you succeed will give him so much peace and closure on his own failings. When you get old and you've fucked up your life and you realize there ain't much you are going to ever do to turn it around or be the success you wanted to be, you really really want to see the younger generations under you be better at life than you. It satisfies and fills this hole in your heart to see people you love succeed where you might have failed. Please don't let him down.

Edit: study, GO TO CLASS, and take notes! Look over your notes every night for even just a few minutes. One thing that REALLY helped me was making flash cards using blank index cards. You take pieces of your notes and create a question/answer out of the information. Example: Let's say you have Bio and in your notes you wrote, "Chlorophyl is why grass is green." So you write, "Why is grass green?" on one side and the answer "Chlorophyll" on the other. If you take the time to make up flash cards from that days lecture and your notes after each class it will help you immensely come exam time. You won't have to stay up all night studying. You can take your flash cards with you everywhere. Waiting in line for something? Pull out the flash cards and do a quick review to see how many you know and how many you don't. Keep the ones you don't separate and review them more until there are none left that you don't know off the top of your head. Also, re-writing your notes each night (in the form of flash cards) really helps your brain remember the information too

I'm gonna try my best, friend. Thanks for all the advice

"Don't end up like me."

My fucking chest....

That hit me hard. The man got to the point in his life that he realized he fucked it up and he can probably pin point the decisions that led him there.

As an uncle I can relate a bit with this. I feel such pride in my niece and nephew for what they've accomplished and the lives they have ahead of them, and I try to give them advice about life. I just hope it sinks in.

Why people throw their lives away attacking an armed Witcher, I don't know...

ALRIGHT

I'll fucking play the Witcher series, damn

You guys are pushy as fuck

I'll try spinning! That's a good trick!

Just play 3.

I loved this fortress in Toussaint. So many men and I was relatively evenly ranked with them so it was an actual challenge. It's all fun and games until that one guy pulls out a crossbow

You can tell they really put a lot of research into this one.

Funniest post on this sub. Thank you

Honestly, I don't even know what they're advertising here. MAYBE a Mayweather fight? MAYBE McGregor's boxing debut? Literally nothing in the article made any sense to me. Even if Ali were alive, he'd be 76. McGregor would be fighting a poor old man.
