housewifeswag for president.
oh my god I thought the last one was a JOKE, jfc
THE LAST ONE IS NOT A JOKE. REPEAT THE LAST ONE IS NOT A JOKE. PLEASE DEAR GOD STOP ROMNEY FROM BEING PRESIDENT.
Yeah, just to clarify: no part of #9 is a joke. All those things sound like gross exaggerations that would be unfair, horrible things to say about a person were they not true. Unfortunately, every single one of them is.
Actually, I’d like to clarify something about #9.
The man who was assaulted was attacked by Mitt and a few of Mitt’s friends, yes, but he was not gay. That’s what makes it worse. He was NOT gay, but Mitt and his friends suspected he was gay simply because he came to school with what can only be described as an 80s-appropriate hairstyle. Because his bangs were longer than the hair at the back of his head, they decided it was a clear indication that he was a homosexual and they sought to “fix” that by forcibly cutting his hair. The man, however, was not gay and due to the bullying he received from Mitt, Mitt’s friends, and several people in the aftermath of what Mitt and his friends did, the man committed suicide.
I would also like to note that this occurred while Mitt Romney was in college.
It wasn’t elementary school, when you could at least blame parents and school faculty for not intervening. It wasn’t even during high school, when you’re expected to be completely immature and there’s still enough accountability to assign to parents and teachers that chose not to intervene. It was during college. They were all adults and they behaved that way toward someone they suspected could be gay because of their chosen style of hair.
When Mitt was confronted with the fact that the man went on to kill himself as a result of having no self-esteem or self-worth after having been so cruelly taunted, bullied, and assaulted, he brushed the subject off and said, “kids will be kids.” Except you weren’t a child, you weren’t even a teenager. You were an adult and you went unpunished for your criminal assault of another human being, and that person is now dead because of the things you and your friends drilled into his head. Negative infinity points for Romney.
I am not yet old enough to vote but please please please if you are 18, register and vote. It does matter. I sound like those MTV campaigns but I don’t care. VOTE. No really, seriously. V O T E.
mitt romney. literally. caused somebody’s death.directly.
HOW ARE AMERICANS STILL VOTING FOR ROMNEY?! HOWWWWWWWWWWWW?!
You know, if Romney comes into power and bad things start happening to America and the rest of the world, I blame the Americans stupid enough to vote for him, simply because they like the simple things he says, and the fact he isn’t black.
This is the problem with politics, most people just vote and know absolutely nothing about it.
The spaceport was a buzz of activity. People and aliens were going about doing what they did best. Security guards checking the freighter pilots for papers, mechanics running from one end of their ships to another, fixing them. Traders trying to get a better bargain.
Kat looked around with her large eyes, gazing at the different stalls and docking bays. She wasn’t human, nor alien. While standing on two leg, they ended in paws rather than feet and her whole body was covered in a striped orange, black fur.
She sniffed around for a familiar scent, realizing it would be in vain since she had not been in the spaceport until now.
But she did sense something out of place. Her predatory instincts tugged in her. It was small, a creature, zipping from place to place. But it was not going in a specific direction, rather it was confined to one place going in circles.
She brushed aside the thoughts, she was not here for eating, but to find the job she had applied for.
She picked up her pace. Glances from others didn’t bother her. She was a predator, going for a target came in naturally for her and should anyone come in her way, they would learn to stay away in the future.
She got closer to the docking bay she was supposed to be at, but couldn’t find the specific entrance.
The scent was much closer. Still in the same area, zipping about. She found it hard to concentrate. Hunger was a power difficult to overcome.
She wished she could have eaten prior to coming to the spaceport, but food was scare and she had used her last credits to book passage. Her kind did not enjoy many right nor privileges. This was why she sought out this job. A weapons specialist on a privately owned freighter.
She found the docking bay, but as soon as she did a small furry creature zipped past her. The scent was that she had noticed as coming from that one creature. With a roar she gave in to her hunger. She jumped after the creature, leaving all pretence of being sentient. The small furry thing shrieked then ran towards her running under her as she jumped. It ran back to the docking bay and she followed. The creature shrieked again and then she heard a clicking noise. As she ran into the bay on all fours, she suddenly stared into the barrel of a blaster.
Turned out that making politics is more complicated than anticipated.
So I’m gonna stretch it out a bit starting with the Mythos of the story, then clan-history ending with the goverment… (There might be more steps, but let me take it as it goes)
While this is not the politics of my universe as I promised it does give a little groundwork…
It’s written in point style to give an idea of what happened year for year or rather century by century…
- 2035 AD - Worldwide Empire. (Semantics, but opposed to the world goverment, this was a dictator who forced upon the world a dictatorship)
- 2050 AD - Worldwide goverment, thanks to a lone figure, who became known as: “The hero”.
- 2200s AD - Rule of Benevolent Dictatorship by the decendants of “The hero”
- 2276 AD - Luna (Earth Moon) is colonized.
- 2339 AD - After 1 century of prosperity, benevolent dictatorship is recinded in favor of council rule, with elected leaders.
- 2452 AD - Clans of politicians rises up. Many clans claiming to be direct decendants of “The hero”.
- 2503 AD - Scientific reasearch results in mammalian creatures being genetically modified with human genes - ie. increased intelligence, human dexterity and so on.
- 2518 AD - Primate wars. Primates with increased intelligence, rebel against human opression.
- 2563 AD - End of Primate wars. Genetically modified primates are eradicated, while primates in general are sent to reservations to isolation. Experiements with other creatures were begun. Genomes become owned as Intelligent Properties, with the Canis being goverment owned.
- 2600s AD - Corruption and Lobbyism is norm.
- 2616 AD - Lightspeed travel invented/discovered.
- 2645 AD - Mars, Venus, asteroid belt and Jupitor moons are colonized
- 2685 AD - Faster Than Light travel is developed.
- 2700s AD - Contact with alien species.
- 2800s AD - Alliances with alien species around galaxy, creating factions.
- 2933 AD - Military build-up between factions in Milkyway galaxy.
- 2939 AD - Galaxy-wide war. Earth consolidate forces in areas around Sol-system and anexed allied factions.
- 2945 AD - End of war with the destruction of Alpha Centauri. Earth revert to Council Rule, by heritage. Two Clans claim right to rule by birth-right.
- 3085 AD - Change of Goverment. Now rule by a triumvirate of one reprecentative from each of two clans and a neutral member.
- 3115 AD - Start of Story.
There’s no doubt, that working on a sci-fi, where elemtents of the story is happening in space, you need spaceship designs…
While I have some 10 fighter designs lying around my hardrives, they need to be updated to reflect on my improved skill with 3D, aswell as knowlegde of general design, on certain subsystems.
Of the capital ships I have 7 designs lying here and there, either in scraps of paper or 10 year old 3D models…
Suffice to say, they need to be updated aswell as being made into models.
The biggest challenge of making spaceship designs is that you have to be careful not to make on that looks like something from Star Trek, Star Wars or Battlestar Galactica. That’s fighters, freighters and capitalship in all…
While Two of my designs could be pointed out of being stolen of an excisting design, I would like to point out that I have been working on these for years. Just the capital ships carry a linage from my first, which I showed to my friends in Avian Technology and Trade (a former Star Wars - Galaxies player assosiation) link: www.avian-gamers.net/forums/ on to the sleeker version of it, to a remodeling, to a modification, to a up-scaling…
So counting that’s 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ships all in one… Then I got two frigates so that’s counted up for sure…
I need to find these old pictures one day and post them here… If not, I’ll re-make the models just to show them…
Well this is my first post and I feel it is fitting to post about the universe I am creating as the first post.
Been working a bit on my sci-fi and have already made scetches for the first instance in the first chapter (I usually make backgrounds and such in 3-D) and I already know the looks, personality, backstory for my main characters.
Main characters - a work in progress
I already got some of the supporting charactors aswell for the good guys. The antagonist has yet to be fully developed. While it is related to the protagonist, I have yet to detail out a backstory, looks and personality. Even less are the supporting chacters for the evil side.
Execpt one though. A re-curring competent, yet unlucky captain of a frigate who is on C.A.P. for pirate activities. His encounters with our heroes will be both exciting, humorous and terrifying…
Year and place
The universe of the story is the milkyway, year 3000+ (been considering year 3148 or 3115 due to 2010 + 1138 or 1977 + 1138 respectively and it is far out enough, giving me allowance to the near-outrageous technology).
Humans developed scientifically enough to begin colonising planets, first locally in the solar system, then to the nearest stars, then later around the local clusters of stars. Though this colonisation was run by very capitalistic forces… While not a bad thing paranoia began to creep into people and more often than not a politician is elected with the ambition of making the Terran Confederation more safe for it’s people…
Other advances in science has made it possible for genetist to mix the human genome with genomes of other creatures, canine and feline being preferred (monkey being incredible hard to control due to their already high intelligence and closeness to human, making them on par or even superior to human in many aspects). This made bipedal cat’s and dog with many human aspect, but with either resistance to certain toxins (contra sensitivety to other toxins and deseases common in the respective creature-host) or higher agility or physical strength.
These creature of genetic science were often mistanken by non-terrans for being an enslaved alien species or a very different sub-species of the human genome (where they in a sense were corrrect in the latter)
Dog-human and cat-human mix were created in order to cover a distinct lack of both mentally qualified and physically qualified man-power i.e. a human could do the nessesary work but was physically incapeable to do so, were as a feline could easyly access said area, but lacked the nessesary intelligence.
Odd-genetic result were a mix of squirrels and human, while not physically, but mentally. giving them a squirrelse size, agility, speed combined with human intelligence. (think a mini mechanic with high-coffeine levels)
That is part of the universe I have created. Next week we go in the political situation.
