This is one of the best scenes in the whole movies history. And that’s because of the brilliant performance by Ronald Lee Ermey. Unfortunately, Ronald Lee Ermey has passed away on April 15, 2018, at the age of 74. He played a few more roles in other movies, but I think this is by far his best contribution to the cinema. Probably, because he was a drill instructor in the United States Marine Corps in real life.
Anybody who believes Ukrainian news is a moron. Anybody who believes Russian news is a moron. Anybody who believes European or American news is a double moron. All of them lie through their teeth and none of it makes any freaking sense. That’s where I stand.
Is there a place in the world you never want to visit? Where, and why not?
Being genuinely open to travel opportunities, I was surprised how quickly my brain came up with an answer – Burma. Why? Because I’ve seen Rambo. And before you scream at me for it just being a movie, read a bit further – Wikipedia page for Rambo movie, and Wikipedia page for Burmese anti-government protests.
As someone who spends many hours in FPS games, I found the concept of an FPS game with no shooting – Warco – interesting and thought provoking. As Ars Technica puts it:
Warco is a first-person game where players shoot footage instead of a gun. A work in progress at Brisbane-based studio Defiant Development, the game is a collaboration of sorts; Defiant is working with both a journalist and a filmmaker to create a game that puts you in the role of a journalist embedded in a warzone.
The game is still in production and it is not clear whether it will ever come out. There is a trailer which gives a feel to how it might be.
Comparison between Cyprus and Somalia, children and adults is nothing more but a coincidence in my news stream. Consider the two articles that appeared not next to each other, but near enough for me to group them here.
First, in incident in Cyprus, as reported by the Cyprus Mail.
AN ANNUAL festival in Anogyra village held to celebrate the honey and sesame sweet, pastelli, ended on a sour note on Saturday after three people were slightly injured in a fight over balloons.
Chairs and bottles were thrown in the fight between two families that resulted in four arrests and three people getting slightly injured.
Second, a little competition in Somalia, as reported by the Guardian.
An Islamist-backed radio station in Somalia has awarded assault rifles and hand grenades to the winners of a children’s Qur’an recital competition.
Andalus radio, which is run by al-Shabaab militia, said on Monday that the first prize was an AK-47 and £450. The runner-up received an AK-47 and £320, while the child who came third received two F1 hand grenades and £250. The three children also received religious books.
