That might be mid-air border crossing through the Line of Control. It is still there on the world map from years ago in which lead to Pakistan getting so angry that they wanted to nuke a 1+ billion nation if India does not stop. No one even dared to push their red buttons since the ban on nuclear weapons treaty some years back, but it is likely that both countries are eager to nuke each other to oblivion if their governments can't calm themselves down soon. That might be a starting point for WWIII there but who knows?

Twitter has also announced their move against anime alongside the UN as well, targeting the plus-sized anime users off their site. @GlassMoon, this might well be your concern at this point as social media is slowly on their way to cleaning up their act.

The European Union is ok with their final text agreement thanks to the aid of France and Germany, so their final vote will come at the end of this month on the 25th through 28th just to speed things up before the spring elections; Julia from the Pirate Party wants to stage an even larger protest by the 23rd.

In addition, somewhat even weirder now is that since Japan is going to host the 2020 Olympics next year, but it is also the centre of what they perceive their "creepiness" is 200,000 sq. kilometers of a giant rug and every police officer in the country, even the islands far from the mainland are now out on the streets. They even made measures that are more drastic to their court systems like removing the death penalty completely. Eventually my country might not get to see a single cop car at all according to Trump, but who is going to respond to an emergency and realize that there is not a hero to attend a scene? No police means total anarchy, even the country's rivals condemned such a move because it can bring more safety and health problems.

Still talking about what is going on in Japan regarding popular marriage with virtual characters; even dating anime characters still won't shield people from dating real people or another virtual character. The man that married Miku a while back openly found out he had tons of 2D art on him and when he quit singing with her, she instantly cried and dumped him. What if I am seeking to go and try having more than one anime character at my side, will they accept that? This is just... odd.

I like the dub, so AnimeBytes for me. KissAnime or 9Anime is nice too, but they're harder to download actual files from. ^^

I think this is it. Nothing else that seems as good as Masteranime. I guess I'll just torrent anime on nyaa from now on. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I use Animedao.com when I want to watch some old anime that aren't on nyaa.
Any website that works well on mobile? I usually watch anime on my phone at night.

Perhaps twist.moe will do you right? Haven't tried it on mobile but I can't see why it wouldn't work. Plus their servers haven't been as crappy as since I first found about them.

Thanks for the recommendation. I watched the first episode of hell girl (doesn't have season 1 :thinking:) on twist.moe and it worked pretty well. The website looks nice and load quickly. Doesn't have any ads. Pretty nice. Thank you.

So the UK parliament has once again voted against the Prime Minister's deal, and also, once again, voted to rule out a no-deal exit from the EU. Of course, the latter is entirely meaningless, since if something isn't sorted out before the 28th, the UK's leaving without a deal anyway.

The latter motion was tabled by the Prime Minister, who then herself opposed it. The party whip tried to get the rest of the Tories to vote against it. The whip himself, along with a load of other tories ended up voting for it anyway. The government's own party is being rather vocal about its ineptitude, and the Prime Minister has implied that she plans to try and get a deal through again next week.

What a fucking mess.

I don't think a clusterfuck of this magnitude was what I imagined the Brexit fallout would be but I'm not exactly surprised it ended up this way. I can't wait for second vote of no confidence. Also, my god, it's been over two and a half years since Brexit already. Time is just whizzing past me like snow in a blizzard.

You say Brexit fallout, but it hasn't actually even happened yet. The UK's due to leave on the 29th (or 28th, i forget). I doubt there'll be another vote of no confidence. A general election is more likely, once the government realises that it can't even whip its own party to vote in line. Though it'll be interesting to see what happens tomorrow, as they're voting on whether or not to extend the deadline.

Yeah, time's been flying by too quickly.

I guess fallout from the Brexit vote itself is more what I was thinking of. Which isn't exactly encouraging for what actual Brexit will be like. I've heard stories about some pretty wild capital flight that's already going on.

Yeah, loads of larger businesses are moving away. Also, a large amount of those involved in the brexit campaign happen to benefit financially if it goes through.

Animals deserve to live. Stop expanding cities, stop cutting the fucking amazon. 2/3rds of all life live in that forest. If this doesn't stop I am stealing the Leave Britney Alone guys meme for this

BIG WORRY

That the time the anti-vax(love killing children) movement is gaining strengh that zombie deer dieasea is spreading...and I am sure when it infects people and there is a vaccine for it they will be "Its normal for children to be quiet and slobber everywhere" if you want your kid to be a zombie keep them in your house. 

Also Anti-Vaxxers are an concern but luckily in cali its law to have vaccines for school

The E.U. law on copyright filtering and link tax will take a 2-year grace period in every single E.U. member state, including the U.K. had it not been fully Brexited. Every single platform if it is commercial will only be around for no more than three years, it should contain no more than five million visitors, or make less than 10 million Euros within that period. Short length clips featuring parody is still legal and all commercial platforms and sites in any E.U. member state that wants to implement it until that point will have to prepare for the worst. I cannot be certain if the same ambigious limits would be the same for non-commercial ones too.

Given the not so sophisticated filtering technology for such a hastily passed law, replacing an 18-year old version and a narrow rejection to remove Article 13 at the last minute just today, I suspect that even content that comes from Europe will not be available here in the U.S. and other countries. This makes it look like as if Europe is following China's lead. This means even non-EU citizens who want to do business with EU citizens or just to get content made by them will have two full years, maybe less before it fully becomes law. Any of those left behind that reject the implementation after that grace period is going to be slammed very hard by their Parliament.

If I see any drastic changes to the terms of service on any place I go to that associate with E.U. policies despite not being a citizen of Europe, know that my time on the Internet would be ending from that point, because I love using it, I been using it for years since. Even my family and friends all over the world would eventually find out they cannot use the Internet as often because of this in place. Right now, it is not happening immediately like the downfall of Net Neutrality back last year, so we have time.
