Don't forget all the Russian trolls.

Thank you, I think.

Only if you work for the Russian government.

The American trolls are more active on English movies.  It's too much work for them to view a film in a different language - even with subtitles. ;D

Hillary struggles to get into van after an hour and a half in 70/80 degree weather. CNN is on this like flies on shit while Trump took the high road and said he knew nothing about her medical condition. ( It sounds like someone is pulling the reins on Trump )



An interesting little oddity is the little thing that seems to appear or possibly fall from her ankle 30 seconds into the video. ( it happens between 00:30 and 00:31 ) . No idea what this is or where it came from, but god dammit, It looks like she's falling apart! I was originally convinced that she was Slitheen, but now I'm starting to suspsect that she really is a robot after all.   :P

The word "puppet" comes to mind before drone does, but there are definitely some interesting similarities. ( and no, I'm sure there has to be at least one or two who do not fit the stereotype )

CNN is reporting that Hillary has pneumonia.

If Hillary Clinton's got a bout of pneumonia this week, well, Trump near regularly sounds like he's on steroids mixed in with coke when he's speaking to a crowd.  ::)

Couldn't be a puppet, otherwise I'd see her nose whenever she faces northern europe. :P

Ouch, that's no fun. Could also be deadly considering her age if not treated correctly.

Hey, his health is tremendous! The greatest! Could run a marathon and not be out of breath! Even a doctor on fox news diagnosed his mental health as ''tremendous'' from afar, so it must be very tremendous!


On a more fun note for us Swedes is that Karl Forsman managed to take home the Gold Medal for 100m Swimming in Paralypics.

Thank you, Tainted. Translation seem to be fairly accurate, with nothing important lost, after skimming through both side by side.

Observation 1: It's not the first time the US presidential elections led to questions about the possible inhuman nature of the candidates:



Observation 2: If politicians really are drones, I'd like to know where some particular models are being produced. I'd be glad to steal one copy of the "Joanna Mucha" model:



Alternatively, one of the "Monika Rosa" bots would do, too:

Instagram is going to let users select words to filter out offensive comments.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-switch/wp/2016/09/12/instagram-rolls-out-its-comment-filter-to-everyone/?wpisrc=nl_tech&wpmm=1

I like this idea. If you don't like a certain type of content/comment, just filter it out so it never bothers you. Especially the fact that you can choose your own keywords is a good way to go about it. After all, everyone's offended by different things to a different degree. And it's not even just offense, anything you find awkward to talk about you can filter out too. Color me surprised, a social media platform handling something pragmatically, cleanly and simply.

So apparently the problem of men in clown suits trying to lure children away form school bus stops has gotten worse

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/clown-sightings-macon-georgia-children-say-clowns-chased-them-from-bus-stop/

Multiple copycats are now dressing up as clowns just to screw around and that worries me since the one who originally dressed up and tried asking kids to follow him (with promises of candy) is still out there. :(

Screwing around by 'impersonating' a child abductor is a dangerous thing.  I saw one article that talked about a guy 'chasing a clown with a machete'.  I'm pretty sure that the clown wasn't the one with the machete.

I can think of a few "social experiment" YouTube channels that could probably do with a good machete chase to teach them some common sense.

But be sure to film it and upload it as '_____ REACTS to a Machete Chase.'  ;D

http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2016/09/14/bisexual-woman-and-her-mum-stabbed-to-death-and-burnt-in-suspected-hate-crime-attack/

A 27 year old and her 61 year old mother was found stabbed to death and then their trailer was set on fire. They had previously reported their neighbor for constant harassment and threatening them bodily harm but police said they couldn't do anything. Yeah this is what happens when we let politicians and pastors spew hatred against us, people are hurt or as in this case.. die.

Let's not jump to conclusions though. We have to follow where the evidence leads. Preconclusions is how we get misidentification and arrest the wrong person, letting the real killer roam free. If it was indeed the neighbor evidence will point to it.

Massive Flooding in North Korea leading to Hundreds missing or dead.

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/n-korea-says-floods-worst-disaster-since-wwii/ar-BBw8HHd?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=HPCOMMDHP15

This just angers me because you know only the innocent people who live under the oppressive regime are going to suffer, while the elite wont bat a single eye or miss a moment of sleep, so long as they still can still remain in power over the people.
