I'll take "winwing not charging $300 for what's realistically half the quality of VKB" over trying to land a real plane.... and I own a PA28.

Y'know the French did this "publicly execute the rich" thing before. Worked out pretty great for them..... maybe we should learn a thing or two.

They're comment is wrong. But non-marxian communism exists. For example council communism.

But a Tankie is basically a Leninist/Stalinist/Maoist communist who dick rides authoritarianism.

A river delta is where it meets a lake or the ocean. Where you would find brackish water for a fresh water river like the Amazon or Mississippi Rivers

[OC] Brackish (self.poetry)
submitted 2 months ago by Imotali to c/poetry

All girls corrupt like waves of brackish salt
Stolen from the world their youth the delta mix
Lies are told to make them think that it's their fault

Though women try to shield them from the stiffened gault
They are dashed and churned into those bluish bricks
All girls corrupt like waves of brackish salt

A purity they chase as if their ends they think they'll halt
Yet purity escapes and dies along the River Styx
Lies are told to make them think that it's their fault

As girls do age and stiffen up like malt
To be like brick and stone for society's new picks
All girls corrupt like waves of brackish salt
Lies are told to make them think that it's their fault

The ends justify the means?

Hypotheticaly then: if I had a 100% guarantee that murdering all babies would get them into heaven, but you'd go to hell, is it morally right to murder all babies? The ends justify the means, do they not? We need to get babies to heaven! So murder them all!

No, it's absolutely still monstrous. Because utilitarianism is stupid.

[OC] [FB] Bluebirds (self.poetry)
submitted 5 months ago* (last edited 5 months ago) by Imotali to c/poetry

Bluebirds flit about the garden as I watch
a moment pass in time as I cry
They flit about and sing a song for me
keep company as I sit alone and stare

"What is it like to fly?" I ask the bluebirds
yet ne'er an answer do they ever give
"Stay a moment please?" I ask the bluebirds
yet ne'er a one does ever stay for me

They mustn't understand me, thinks I
as the bluebirds carry on
That's right, they cannot answer so
and yet the bluebirds call

Rage within boils over like Vesuvius
as the bluebirds mock me still
"Answer, damn you!" I do to them so shout
yet still no answer is their's given

A treat! A treat will liken them to me!
I think as I brandish then some bread
Yet eat they do and no answer still is their's
as they mock my gift with silent pecks

Will I never be free? Shall I perish here then?
I think as the songbirds sing their song
"You mock me still, just leave me be!"
I cry as tears do then I shed

But birds know not my prison cell
they know just gardens free
They cannot speak some truth to me
a truth they'll never know

War crimes are explicitly not terrorism by definition. If you need a basic high school education though there's hopefully a public school near you. This subject and topic is covered under civics.

[-] Imotali 0 points 8 months ago

Wars are by definition lawful. Sorry you're wrong

It's also not a twisted definition. It's the literal dictionary definition that all countries use when defining terrorism.

And no, if war time acts were not lawful, all war is terrorism which it isn't so again you're wrong.

[-] Imotali 1 points 8 months ago

Israel can't be called terrorism because terrorism must be—by definition—unlawful

the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.

Emphasis mine.

"Hey so I know we've been doing a genocide but look, we're being really nice when we bomb innocent civilians homes by letting them know we're going to bomb their homes."

This (a) doesn't excuse literal genocide and (b) is just a "nicer" version of exactly the thing they're appalled Hamas just did. You don't get to cry foul if you're going to retaliate with a tit for tat play.

[-] Imotali 1 points 8 months ago

They are terrorists. That's literally what they are. The fact that attacked an evil fascist state's city doesn't change that.

[OC][FB] Sonnet 81 (self.poetry)
submitted 11 months ago by Imotali to c/poetry

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
I could like Shakespeare pen idyllic lines!
Or is that but a quaint and drawn cliche?
Cliche, archaic, sexist too I find.

When but this hardship ever passes by,
And you and I like lovers ever be,
Will be the day that I release a sigh,
This task complete a payment, it's a fee.

A fee like dowry, no, again that is,
Just slightly gross to treat you like a toy,
That one might buy inside a Target, Iz,
You mean such more than idle trinket joy.

So here I end my heart wrought task I'm done,
No more shall I be needing write, you've won.

[OC] The Changeling (self.poetry)
submitted 11 months ago by Imotali to c/poetry

In days of old when now was then,
A babe sat keening, bain sidhe's mournful strain,
Within the glade, where naught appeared to sight,
Yet lantern Jack cast shadows in the night.
Both fey and devil, angel too, did spurn,
The one who caused fair Cliodhna's tears to churn.

A babe so spectre thin and gaunt and frail,
A babe so fraught no Danann dare to touch,
Scorned by mortals and heard in frightened tale,
Until fey and devil did claim them such.

A changeling child not changeling born,
Did bring to Medb a heimal warmth,
Still the spectre Erin sits alone and keens,
And at her keen does pause the faerie queen,
At the keen, the keen with echoed thrills,
Through the barrows of the ever still.

And then the day which is but now,
The changeling babe does ever keen,
A babe embraced by deadly ploughs,
And scorned by mortal and the faerie queen.

Court just recessed for lunch after FL State Prosecutors and Defence gave closing arguments. State's closing was fairly strong focusing on the elements of the charges and evidence of testimony. Mark Eiglarsh began his closing very strongly as well however ran out of time after being granted additional time. Failed to cover the elements of the case. Prosecution rebuttal after lunch. Judge denied Eiglarsh's request for more time.

I am the weaver of souls, the master of fate
The doorman standing at Hell's awful gate
The visitor that comes when you are in a state
Of pestilential, existential, infinite distrait

But never fear for I am fair
A player bound by wretched rules
The game I play, I say, you can too if you dare
But if you lose, within here you will stay

So I'll arrange the board, don't be bored
For you're soon to meet your end
Cause in my game your ending's all but penned
So sit down and listen to my awful keening chord

You well did try to win this game
But I'm a practiced, well, old fool
None have beat me, you still tried all the same
So this fleece you may not have the precious golden wool

For I am the weaver of souls, the master of fate
The doorman standing at Hell's awful gate
The visitor that comes when you are in a state
To reap your soul and leave the rest in infinite distrait
