  1. Marvel put out a new synopsis of Deadpool & Wolverine.

    Quote

    Marvel Studios presents their most significant mistake to date – Deadpool & Wolverine. A listless Wade Wilson toils away in civilian life. His days as the morally flexible mercenary, Deadpool, behind him. When his homeworld faces an existential threat, Wade must reluctantly suit-up again with an even more reluctantlier… reluctanter? Reluctantest? He must convince a reluctant Wolverine to – Fuck. Synopses are so fucking stupid.

    But, going from word choice and certain 'miscomprehensions' for want of a better term. I think most of them are Russians. 

    That's not what i meant.  I meant those types of Russians are as ignorant and jingoistic sheep as the MAGA morons, not that they were Americans pretending to be Russians.  Every country has that crowd, unfortunately.

    I am starting to wonder here. On other sites, I occasionally interact with Russians who somehow made it onto the Western internet. Almost all of them view Ukraine as an illegitimate country and will go on at length about the need to obliterate Ukrainian Nazis. For that matter, they view the West as being a sort of front for a Nazi regime centered in the US, with the rest of NATO as bootlicking vassal states. Plus, they will go on about how the USSR singlehandedly won WWII and how Russia is the 'greatest nation ever.' They are either dismissive or utterly baffled about the rest of the war - and the massive assistance Russia received from the West.

    Economic arguments about the relative wealth of Russia versus the West don't seem to register at all - they either dismiss it as part of the Nazi plot or view it as a sort of bribe, for want of a better term. They complain bitterly about NATO expansion - but arguments about how the new countries entering NATO did so out of fear of Russian aggression leave them baffled. The concept of a genuine alliance instead of a boss/vassal-type situation seems beyond their comprehension.

     

    As far as Ukraine is concerned, to them, Russia is winning. Ukrainian losses across the board are far higher than Russia's, and reports of Russia employing human wave tactics are Nazi propaganda. They endlessly cite reports of Ukrainian draft dodgers yet dismiss such accounts from within Russia. Press gangs? Those don't exist.

     

    What does stymie these people is that despite Russia being clearly superior, the battle lines remain fixed.

    Now to the crux - to these people, and presumably most other Russians, Russia is the greatest nation ever whose greatest moment was fighting the Nazis. They see the Ukrainian war as a continuation of this - Russia CANNOT lose. God and pride and history are on their side.  So, what happens to this mentality when Russia does decisively lose the Ukrainian war? Especially when the reality of their collapsing economy hits home?

    Sounds like MAGA morons.

  4. Perhaps DV meant a black light sun, ie. UV.  He is Quebecois after all, could be he was not sure of the English words.  Filming in UV would have looked terrible, most likely, so they used an IR camera.  I posted a video the other day about the specifics on the technical aspects of the camera.

    In short, normally the camera they used would remove IR from the light going into  the aperture, they removed the IR filter and added a filter that removed visible light (if I understand correctly).  Actually I'm pretty sure I didn't understand the explanation, but maybe someone else can watch the video and figure it out.

    Also you forget one small detail: I'm German. We don't talk to strangers unless we have a very good reason to do so.

    Then wouldn't any German woman automatically assume if you're talking to them, you must think you have a good reason?  Use it.
