    [–] Texas Students Will Soon Learn Slavery Played a Central Role in the Civil War crispy_attic 1 points ago in nottheonion

    Graduated from college in texas. One of my professors was teaching the same thing.

    Professor: The civil war was about state's rights.

    Me: You mean the state's right to own slaves? So basically slavery.

    Professor: No, state's rights.

    Me: So which rights?

    Professor: The right to defend itself from Northern agression.

    Me: That doesn't make sense. The south attacked first in South Carolina.

    Professor: As was their right.

    Me: That is not what I was taught growing up.

    Professor: Well, we will have to agree to disagree.🙂

    Me: 🤔

    Make no mistake about it. There are a lot of people who hold this belief. It is being taught in universities, grade schools, and at homes all over the state.

    [–] Navy SEALs and Marines charged with murdering Green Beret in horrific hazing incident: Prosecutors - ABC News crispy_attic 139 points ago * (lasted edited 3 days ago) in news

    This is one of the saddest stories I have read in a while. Such a tragedy. God bless the families of these young men.

    Edit: I used the title as written on the article. It looks like ABC has since changed it to reflect the fact that this was indeed murder, as opposed to a "hazing incident".

    [–] EA will remaster the first two 'Command & Conquer' games in 4K crispy_attic 4 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in gaming

    From the article:

    And no, these won't be excuses to wring out a steady stream of cash from nostalgic gamers. Unlike C&C Rivals, EA is promising that the remasters will go "without microtransactions."

    Remember that time people in Haiti were actually fighting to be free.

    Freedom from slavery > taxation without representation.

    Erdogan/ Turkey does not have nuclear weapons. The missiles in Turkey are the property of the US government.
