An Hero Day

Leave a comment

 

So ya, it’s 9/11 again, and we’re ready to An Hero our economy some more, but let’s have Obama have his word on this matter.

 

Marking the Eleventh Anniversary of 9/11

 

Today, President Obama and the First Lady marked the eleventh anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

They began the day at the White House, observing a moment of silence on the South Lawn just after 8:45 a.m., around the time the first plane hit the north tower of the World Trade Center. Afterward, they traveled to the Pentagon, where the President spoke at a memorial service in honor of those who died there, as well as in New York and Pennsylvania.

This anniversary allows us to renew our faith that even the darkest night gives way to a brighter dawn. Today, we can come here to the Pentagon, and touch these names and kneel beside a building where a single stone still bears the scars of that fire. We can visit the field of honor in Pennsylvania and remember the heroes who made it sacred.  We can see water cascading into the footprints of the Twin Towers, and gaze up at a new tower rising above the New York skyline.

And even though we may never be able to fully lift the burden carried by those left behind, we know that somewhere, a son is growing up with his father’s eyes, and a daughter has her mother’s laugh — living reminders that those who died are with us still.

So as painful as this day is and always will be, it leaves us with a lesson that no single event can ever destroy who we are. No act of terrorism can ever change what we stand for. Instead, we recommit ourselves to the values that we believe in, holding firmly, without wavering, to the hope that we confess.

That’s the commitment that we reaffirm today. And that’s why, when the history books are written, the true legacy of 9/11 will not be one of fear or hate or division. It will be a safer world; a stronger nation; and a people more united than ever before.

Vice President Biden marked the anniversary by traveling to Shanksville, PA, where he delivered remarks at the Flight 93 National Memorial Commemorative Service to honor the passengers and crew who died there 11 years ago today. The Vice President told the families who lost loved ones that day that the heroism of their husbands, wives, sons, daughters, mothers, and fathers would never be forgotten.

Today we stand on this hallowed ground, a place made sacred by the heroism and sacrifice of the passengers and the crew of Flight 93. And it’s as if the flowers, as I walked here, as if the flowers were giving testament to how sacred this ground is.

My guess — and obviously it’s only a guess; no two losses are the same. But my guess is you’re living this moment that Yeats only wrote about, when he wrote, pray I will and sing I must, but yet I weep. Pray I will, sing I must, but yet I weep.

My personal prayer for all of you is that in every succeeding year, you’re able to sing more than you weep.  And may God truly bless you and bless the souls of those 40 incredible people who rest in this ground.

 

So after a heartfelt day of honoring thy dead, let’s move onto Japan’s famous an heroes…their citizens.

 

Men Busted for Cheerleader Snaps: “Isn’t That The Point?”

Author: Artefact

 

Police have arrested two men for the crime of photographing a group of cheerleaders on a stage, although some have criticised them for an excess of diligence when all the men were found to have taken photographs of was their thighs.

The incident occurred at a Kanagawa prefecture high school “culture” festival where a group of 27 high school girls were performing a cheerleader dance on stage.

Two men in the audience, a 36-year-old civil servant working for the prefecture and a 43-year-old banker, disgracefully attempted to film the girls as they cavorted, taking close-ups of their bare thighs and clothed bodies.

A vigilant teacher noticed them brazenly using their cameras and decided they were suspicious, and their photographs were checked by teachers at the school’s staff room and they were reported to police as voyeuristic perverts.

The pair admit photographing the girls, saying they did it together as part of a “hobby,” and that they met at another such event and have been photographing other schoolgirls in public as well.

They have both been charged with indecent activities and trespass for attending the show in the first place.

There has been a certain amount of confusion amongst Japanese as to how photographing cheerleaders on a stage constitutes criminal voyeurism:

“What is wrong with photographing cheerleaders?”

“How can you get arrested for this?”

“How is this voyeurism?”

“If you don’t want people taking photographs or watching them why hold a cheerleader show on a stage?”

“But they only took photos of their thighs?”

“If photographing anyone but your friends is a crime, they might as well ban cameras.”

“Since when is photography banned at these events…”

“It’s creepy but I don’t see any crime.”

“Yet this is legal:”

 

 

“They should arrest that NHK cameraman then.”

“Odd that all the paparazzi photographers never get arrested just because they do it for money.”

“They are doing it for the money rather than to satisfy their lust, so it’s quite different.”

“Doing it for the money frankly seems more creepy than just doing it out of lust…”

“What about NHK and its cameramen taking pictures of wet schoolgirls getting uplifted by typhoons?”

 

“I thought the whole point of cheerleaders was the short skirts and panchira.”

“And yet the mass media happily photographs gymnastics and beach volleyball all the time.”

“It seems excessive that these two get their names dragged through the national press for this when there are murderers and worse who never have their names made public.”

“Why just arrest them like that? You’d think they’d at least warn them to stop photographing. It’s not even clear if the school bothered telling anyone it had banned photography.”

“I reckon they could get away with this if they took normal photographs and then just enlarged the bits they were interested in on their computers later.”

“They took photos of their thighs, they are obviously guilty!”

“It was only a close-up though? And not even of their underwear.”

“The whole point of cheerleaders is to show off the girls though…”

“They obviously weren’t supposed to be at the event either.”

“You lot wouldn’t like it if a bunch of creepy old guys were photographing your thighs whilst you were up on stage either.”

“How can a public performance in a public place possibly constitute ‘voyeurism’ or ‘peeping’?”

“This country is becoming seriously oppressive.”

“If this is a crime, then the cheerleaders themselves must be guilty of public indecency.”

“Nice to see our police and teachers have their priorities straight – kids are being bullied to death in schools, and they focus on the important stuff like this.”

 

I’ll see you guys on the flipside.

Grass out.

 

The Pokemon Company’s Conquest

2 Comments

 

 

So here I am, on facebook digging up stuff, and one of the few good pages that doesn’t post a lot of propaganda posts this bullshit about a game called Pokemon Conquest, now I’m a huge skeptic when it comes to box art on Facebook since most of this shit isn’t real. A lot of images are photo-shopped for ‘fan want’ purposes. So when the guy says “this is the official box art”. I was really stunned, so I did some research and low and behold it exists.

 

 

 

 

The Pokemon company’s logo, Nintendo’s logo, the font for the game, it all seems legit. So after digging around another wordpress blog I present you with their article.

 

 

Pokemon Conquest gets a Summer release in US (gallery)

Sebastian Haley

Pokémon + Nobunaga’s Ambition has been renamed to Pokémon Conquest for its US release. As previously reported, the game is a crossover between Nintendo’s Pokémon franchise and Tecmo Koei’s series of Nobunaga’s Ambition strategy titles.

Set to launch on June 18, the Nintendo DS game will feature nearly 200 Pokémon in six-on-six turn-based battles. “Pokémon fans are always interested in playing in new environments and experiencing new adventures,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Pokémon Conquest gives them an entirely new way to enjoy this beloved series….”

While the Pokémon franchise has countless spin-offs and iterations, this is by far the most risky and intriguing. Reports from Japan have the game selling to a much older audience than typical Pokémon titles. GamesBeat will be watching this one very closely leading up to our official review in June.

This can be found on the blog VentureBeat. But here’s the thing, why go through all the trouble of making a spin off of this game if you know in the end that’s all you’ll be making. Pokemon was said to have ended by Black and White, this is true and false at the same time. For years, Nintendo hasn’t made a sequel to a game, yet this last game must’ve been so enjoyable, they actually made a sequel to it, black 2 and white 2. So what sense does it make to make a sequel of the last game you ever plan on making? You know, I don’t care anymore, because Nintendo’s first party, and every child and their mother will buy the shit Nintendo cranks out of their shitty game factory. And if you’re going to put this in medieval Japan, why would this sell in the US? Because of OniMusha and that whack-ass series. Americans know nothing of Japan and their past; So why bother?

 

Anyway, another bit of news in recent times, is the game that Ryan and I have been making. I’ve posted an intro script up on the Tumblr so you guys can enjoy that. Feel, free to comment about that, or not. So there’s that, and then there’s the actual game being made. Well, let’s move onto news shall we?

 

Deputies: Monkey escapes from Fla. gas station

 

NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. —

A monkey jumped out of his owner’s car at a Florida gas station and deputies briefly joined the search for the primate.

A man flagged down a deputy at a Hess gas station Thursday morning and said his pet monkey jumped out of the car at an intersection.

Pasco County Sheriff’s deputies say they don’t know the species of the monkey.

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) –

A family was rescued after a car crashed into a bayou near Captain Shreve High School.

KSLA News 12’s Adam Hooper says around 8:30 p.m., family members were teaching a 14-year-old girl how to drive in a parking lot in the 6100 block of Kings Highway when she accidentally hit the gas.

The car hit another vehicle, causing the air bag to deploy. The car then jumped the curb and ended up in the bayou.

Emergency crews were able to get everyone out safely. A baby was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

DA: Teacher asked student for naked photos, promised better grade

ALLENTOWN, Pa. –

A high school teacher stands accused of asking one of his students for naked pictures of herself in exchange for a better grade.

Timothy Moll was working as a teacher at Dieruff High School in Allentown when he sent text messages to the 16-year-old girl, asking for the naked photos, authorities said.

Moll, 25, of Emmaus, Lehigh Co., allegedly promised the student extra points toward her grade if she complied with his requests.

The district said Moll has been suspended from his job without pay.

Elderly man pets Great Dane that got loose from neighbor’s house, Owner tells him not to pet her dog. Man says, “What are you going to do … hit me?” Hilarity ensues

TARPON SPRINGS — Relations in the neighborhood were already strained when Michelle Sieber argued with her 69-year-old neighbor just before 7 a.m. Monday about the noise the night before, according to police.

Then Sieber’s dog got out. The neighbor petted the Great Dane. Sieber warned him not to touch her dog. “What are you going to do … hit me?” the neighbor asked, according to police.

Sieber was arrested early Monday morning for doing exactly that, police said. She punched her 69-year-old neighbor in the left shoulder, according to Tarpon Springs police, and was charged with battery on a person 65 years or older.

When police arrested Sieber, they noted that she had suffered facial injuries. When asked what happened, she told officers her mother attacked her. Then she changed her story and said her mother did not hit her. Sieber refused medical treatment.

She was booked into the Pinellas County jail, where she was being held Tuesday in lieu of $1,500 bail.

Serial Schoolgirl Pantsu Robber Busted

Author: Artefact

A man behind a string of brutal pantsu muggings, indecently assaulting his female victims in the process, has finally been arrested.

The 22-year-old temporary worker has been charged with robbery and indecent assault after a January incident in Aichi prefecture, in which he leapt in front of 16-year-old schoolgirl riding a bicycle, grabbing it by the front basket and knocking her over.

He then proceeded to tear off her underwear, stealing it and other articles and then running off.

He made good his escape, and it was only when he was arrested for an attempt to indecently assault another woman that his pantsu theft came to light, with him rather bluntly admitting that “I wanted to satisfy my lust.”

Police suspect he is behind similar cases of underwear mugging in the area, and are investigating further charges.

 

Triple facepalm.
