So if I went forward with that mad plan, I'd have to come up with a freaking Chaos Curriculum.

It'd be a ton of work, but it sounds like an absolute blast.

An elective course is a lot more reaching than a club would be, but it might survive a challenge considering electives are optional. They'll definitely run into trouble if they ever deny an elective on Quran study or comparitive religions though.

It could still cause trouble for some schools if they offer only the absolute minimum necessary to graduate (lack of funding) and one of them is this Bible course--the course effectively becomes non-elective for students at that school.

Also depends on how it's taught: if it's "Bible as literature" it'll might survive; if it's proselytization it won't, even if it's an elective.

At first, I thought the image was completely unrelated to that Facebook (I think) post. But no, it turns out he really is calling what seems to be a somewhat beautified transformer box that can't be much more than a metre tall a "tower". Why wouldn't he just go with a normal cell tower? They really are everywhere. It really can't be that hard to find a picture of one.

Politics and Government / Re: Presidential Crisis in Venezuela

But let's be completely honest here; the current US government LOVES dictators.  But Venezuela's is a SOCIALIST dictator, and that makes him the enemy.  If he were a capitalist dictator, like Vlad, the US would probably be calling him a "strong leader".
It's not about ideology, it's about oil. Venezuela is selling their oil exclusively to China, which is no bueno according to the US and A.

But the reason they aligned like that was both governments being (nominally) socialist and striking up an ideological and economic deal. So that's like 2x the reasons for the US gov to not be fond of that happening.

I think it's the other way around. They're aligned against the US entirely for political and economic reasons, and those Cold War era "socialist" trappings are just a way of flying the flag, so to speak.

Given that they have to know full well that this ain't gonna fly, I can't help but think this is really just meant to polarise and/or distract people. Am I just being paranoid, or am I right to assume that they're going to try and quietly slip through something that fucks over everyone while all of the attention is on a religious pissing match?

Yes because performances based on stereotypes are the same thing as... reacting using images of actual people, who presumably are acting like they have normal human emotions and intelligence. I guess.

If I had the resources, I'd get involved as "Dark Father Ionios Draxas of Chaos Undivided", saying that the recent law would give every religion the right to make these sorts of clubs. "And I think children need to hear the Primordial Truth of the Dark Gods of the Warp!"

It's not a club, it's an actual elective course that students can take to fulfill part of their graduation requirements.

Wouldn't this reduce our representation in reaction gifs?
