Speaking of, I really hate people who think, and refuse to be shown otherwise, that easier access to guns = less gun violence. How stupid or insane do you have to be to think like that? You shouldn't even need statistical evidence to show you that's bollocks, but we have plenty of it and there's still people like this.

Don't use nonsense to defend youresire to own guns. I mean I bought a katana (a real one, not one of those crap cheap things that are now illegal in the UK) back in university but I'm not about to sit here and tell you that if more people had swords we'd all be a lot safer and sword crime would go down (yes sword crime was actually a thing for while before the UK government brought in stricter laws). Because that'd be mental.

A bumper sticker that read "American by Birth.  Gun owner by choice." against an American flag background.

What possesses a person to place that on their vehicle?  Wasn't even on a truck; it was on a fucking Prius.

Heller was a really bad decision, but, as long as it remains in force...

I was hoping it would say "American by Birth, Asian by Girth". That would've been a lot funnier.

If a manga is advertised as "romantic comedy between the hero and the demon queen" but it turns out that the only reason the daemon queen goes on a date with the hero is...

Let's see: "The hero threatens to kill her unless she goes on a date with him and after seeing that he can defeat her easily she agrees only to save her life."

Japan: What the fuck?

I mean, it does turn into a rom-com later but the start of the series is a bit creepy.

What little anime I've seen has often made me go, "Wait, what? What the fuck is happening?" And not because I can't follow the plot either.

I guess I slept at a weird angle or something and now half of my neck is in fucking agony. I guess this is what getting old feels like.

Normally, I kinda like Guild Wars 2's Heart of Thorns expansion content.  Its quite dense with things to do and is generally relatively enjoyable.  But why, oh why, are the hero point challenges in those maps (the ones that aren't "get to the point and stand there for a bit") behind fucking boss monsters that you need a group to kill?  I don't mind 'em being challenging.  Path of Fire (the sequel expansion) got it right, as its equivalents are hard to do solo, but its certainly possible if you remember to dodge.  But champions that can one-shot your happy ass with bullshit attacks that are hard to dodge, or a sequence of attacks that totally drain your stamina before whipping out said one-hitter-quitter?  Fuck literally all that noise.

That's why you use them for sneak attacks.  Few people expect a young kid to be carrying a bomb or a gun, much less that they'd use one to kill you in your sleep.

From a Finnish source I have heard that 17-year olds make great soldiers because they have not yet understood their own mortality. I assume that the same applies to kids younger than that but younger also means less physically capable as well. ...Which simply means bigger casualties or need to use them for jobs that don't require extreme physical strength.

And we have examples of women fighting in wars. More commonly now than centuries ago but seeing someone go "it is biologically impossible for women to be soldiers" is just ridiculous when we actually have real world examples that prove otherwise.

For God's sake, we have proof of children fighting in wars (though most people would prefer to end that practice.)

I thought that they loved Child soldiers because they haven't yet developed a moral framework. I thought that was one of the reasons that Janissarys were particularly badass.

Of course, the seminal work of Western fantasy has a woman killing one of the main antagonists, so...

I did mention women on battlefield as it seems to upset a lot of people.
