A government is not a nation, it is TYRANNYA government is not a nation, it is TYRANNY over the nationA government is not a nation, it is TYRANNY2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Government is a bureaucratic system that wanna control a population, while the Nation is the population of the country itself, that shares a common past and a common culture, and have a sense of common fate
An example of a nation are the Koreans. An example of a government is the Government of North Korea, that exerts control over part of the Nation, but it is NOT the Nation. The government of North Korea OPPRESSES the Nation and does not allow it to rejoin together with the South,
It is in the best interests of the Government to wreck havoc upon the nation, insofar it allows them to exert greater control over the population, by creating more and more legislation in order to control the chaos they create. A very good example is the Government of USA creating chaos and bombing arabic countries, so that when blow-back occurs (terrorist attacks of 2001), th
Wheatley PatternOkay! So this is my first recorded pattern, and hoo boy, it shows. I don't really do precise measurements or work with a set gauge, so a lot of what I do is just working to match pieces with each other.

This requires basic knitting skills (k, p, k2tog, and m1. If you want to kfb instead of m1, it won't look as nice, but it will do all the same) and the ability to use double pointed needles (DPNs) in the round, crochet a simple chain, and make an I cord. The crochet chain is optional-ish, taking away from it a bit, but is minor enough that it may be ignored if it is too much of a fuss. If any of these are unfamiliar, there are plenty of youtube tutorials that are very helpful! The internet has taught me nearly everything I know about knitting, and absolutely everything about crocheting.

'Pull Down Heaven' Information and FAQI'm excited to finally get to work on a short comic series featuring my tiger and rat characters, Linan and Jeckle.

I hope you enjoy Pull Down Heaven!

Classic Who for "New Series only" fansI got this question from my buddy Robert on Facebook yesterday:Classic Who for "New Series only" fans3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Any suggestions for a guy who is a diehard fan of the new series but feels overwhelmed by the idea of going back to a show of 20 plus years of episodes? I'm afraid I'll either not like them because my basis of comparison is a show made during a time when TV production values are the highest they've ever been, or, I'll love them and lock myself in a room until I've absorbed the show(what still exists) like I did with the new series (that was only 3 seasons in at the time)."
It echoed comments I've gotten from people here. So here's my answer to him, slightly edited and expanded:
Short answer: THE BRAIN OF MORBIUS; GENESIS OF THE DALEKS; THE SEEDS OF DOOM; THE TALONS OF WENG-CHIANG; CITY OF DEATH; EARTHSHOCK; THE CAVES OF ANDROZANI; REVELATION OF THE DALEKS; INFERNO (in that order) If ya wanna just dip your toe in the water, try those nine.

Choose your RivalHi there Ryceballs it is I Ry-Spirit of the East. Here to talk about something that I have never mentioned much before.. And that is the topic of 'Rivals'.Choose your Rival2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ash had Gary Oak, Goku had Vegeta, Naruto had Sasuke. Do you believe that having a rival can help you improve in whatever you do? I do. I remember back in High School I got lots of praises from my classmates for being the greatest at drawing, I liked to draw in my diaries and homeworks alot Which explains why my marks were soooo FREAKIN TERRIBLE!. And there was a friend (I used the term very loosely) who would always try to find ways to make people feel like crap, this time it was no exception, he figured out what I liked and stabbed that piece of pure innocent heart with a sharp poisonous knife, he told me my drawings is poo compared to this other guy our year, I have never seen that guy's artworks before so my friend went as far as to sneak into the library storage room where everyone left their bags at, opened up the guy's bag an

Legend of Korra: Costume Design!One of the neat things about being the lead designer of a show like Young Justice is getting to interact with the fans through sites like this one, seeing the awesome fan art you guys do is a big inspiration for myself and a lot of the other artists and writers on the show. It really keeps us motivated knowing that you guys and girls appreciate the characters and stories we are creating. Along with great art my other favorite aspect of fandom, and easily the most hardcore representation of it, is the cosplayers and their dedication to show accurate costumes. So with SDCC right around the corner I thought I would share a little something interesting with all you Legend of Korra fans out there, as well as cosplayers in general. Last year at around this time my good buddy, Joaquim http://2-cents.deviantart.com/, who is a co-executive producer on Korra, asked my wife, she is a clothing designer by trade, to create a show accurate Korra outfit to be worn by the official model representing tLegend of Korra: Costume Design!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Government Up and Still Taking CommissionsGovernment Back UpGovernment Up and Still Taking Commissions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So our government has be reinstated. Only hours before a final default would've gone into effect everyone finally came together and voted to restore our government. The Tea-Party Extremist who spearheaded the shutdown admitted defeat but not that they're going to give up that easily. Remember, this is only the extension that we were originally going to vote on before finally resolving the issue with the budget. So in a few months we're gonna be right back here singing the same song all over again.
Anyway... WE'RE BACK, BABY!

Honestly didn't see that one coming, but I am happy nonetheless. While the first game wasn't very remarkable, I just love the art style and the stark contrast the game presents compared to every other post-apocalyptic-near-future-world that exists. Chock me up to interested.
Didn't see this one coming either. Quite surprised, but personally don't care. I've never really paid attention to fighting games much, yes even Super Smash Bros. I have a feeling this will be one of those games that we think will be amazing, but the newest generation of kids won't understand why they should care (kinda like DuckTales).
Sidenote: Quite disappointed with the way they handled the demonstration by bringing out a woman to play multiplayer with and "destroying" her while simultaneously saying shit like "just give up... it will be over soon." Scripted or not, that scene was appalling.

And all three of them so happen to have their name starting with C, how about that huh? So I guess a tip is if you wanna become an amazing artist, change your name to something starting with C.
