You underestimate the value of shitting out terrible ideas.

(yes, Lucas is an awful-idea-making machine! The real geniuses are the ones who beat his malformed mind-turds into good movies on episodes 4-6. If he had his way, the main characters might have been Ewoks!)

Every house is a fancy underground complex, and each above-ground entrance will look like a trailer, and each one will come with a muscle car body on blocks and a patchy lawn with tacky lawn ornaments on it and an assortment of kids' toys strewn about. Also there will be a hair salon that gives free mullet cuts to residents XD

On one hand I'm glad he built this low-income housing...on the other hand I don't like that the mere existence of poor people in the vicinity is being used as revenge. I mean it's hilarious and not his fault that rich people think like this, but participating in it seems wrong in itself.

"Won't let me build my studio huh!? Well then eat poor people, motherfuckers! Muahahaha!"

by GameboyRMH (#49478727) Attached to: 'We the People' Petition To Revoke Scientology's Tax Exempt Status

Scientology has Xenu the space-devil, and the alien ghosts that implant themselves in everyone's bodies...

However, I still think their tax-exempt religious status should be revoked. It was originally rejected for legitimate legal reasons and was only conceded to them because of bullying (via lawsuit-DDoS).

Worryingly, I've noticed more mainstream religions are copying some of Scientology's business methods. "Prosperity gospel" basically copies the way they make massive real-estate investments and buy lavish luxuries for top officials using donations from followers. Some Christian boarding schools basically operate like Sea Org on land. I don't think the time is far off when tax exempt status for all religions will have to be revoked to clamp down on these abuses. Scientology has let the genie out of the bottle.

Came here to say this.

List of Chinese nuclear tests

Furthermore, is denying China access to certain Intel CPUs that much of a roadblock? They can buy elsewhere or even make their own. Maybe even make their own clones of these very Intel chips.

This pissing match is stupid on a Cuba-esque level.
