    [–] Donald Trump threw Starbursts at Angela Merkel, saying "don't say I never give you anything" AccessTheMainframe 2 points ago in worldnews

    This isn't true. It's well attested that Trump eats his daily Big Mac without the bun, because he's watching his carbs.

    Well that would be battery, a crime that he would have committed on Canadian soil.

    Perhaps he would be prosecuted but the likely scenario is that he would be expelled from Canada and most of Europe.

    1% of Sinn Féin

    Republicans who don't think the time is right just now.

    1% of the DUP

    Lukewarm republicans who are not lukewarm about abortion and gay marriage.

    Just my guess.

    [–] Donald Trump a 'critical threat' to Australia's interests as trust in US hits record low, Lowy survey reveals - Donald Trump's America AccessTheMainframe 15 points ago in australia

    Afraid not. A nominee was named in May but his appointment has yet to be approved by the US senate. Bizarrely, the man has a hardline stance on North Korea in direct contrast with Trump's. Perhaps the President doesn't even realise this. Perhaps the sudden warming to North Korea is an about-face that happened in the few weeks time since his nomination.

    It's hard to tell with that administration.

    Mate, there isn't even a US Ambassador to South Korea

    Trump has decided that the Korean Peninsula will be focus of his foreign policy and he doesn't even have an ambassador to South Korea. Supposedly the South Koreans were bushed when Trump announced he would cancel joint exercises, because the South Korean government first learned of this major pivot in White House policy from Fox News. He just doesn't communicate with allies.

    Trump had not informed the South Korean government or the US military of his decision, which contradicted both countries’ belief that the drills are purely defensive in nature and essential preparation for a possible North Korean attack.[1]

    He's such an idiot.

    Exactly. There used to be a separation between the religious sphere and the political sphere. Evangelicals crossed it, not secularists.

    [–] For those just picking up Neuromancer, here's what a television tuned to a dead channel looked like in the eighties. AccessTheMainframe 1 points ago in Cyberpunk

    It's the essence of cyberpunk. To describe something as natural as rain clouds in the sky above the sea in terms of technology, rather than the other way around, paints a world where humanism and romanticism have died and all that's left in the human worldview is the ascendancy of technology.

    Obama was 12 when the Vietnam War ended. Of course he wasn't drafted.

    That's an actual fan theory. A propaganda film shows the metroid as having come from literally across the galaxy. How could the bugs have sent a space rock towards Earth across millions of light years? How could the Terran Federation have missed it and let it hit?
