The Blitzbokke demolished all opposition and showed they've evolved quite a bit since last year's rugby world 7s series, when they had to settle for the runner-up spot behind mighty Fiji. The way they played in Dubai over the weekend promises a great bright future for the SA 7s team, which, unlike their 15s counterparts, will have a real chance to shine. (source)

The All Blacks' two encounters with Ireland may've been very tough and fierce, and they weren't devoid of controversy (especially the first one in Chicago where Ireland inflicted the first AB defeat in ages)... but that didn't prevent a few of the NZ players from showing tremendous respect for their opponents. An Irish fan caught Beauden Barrett, Aaron Smith, Kieran Reid and Israel Dagg belching out Ireland's Call, which is the unofficial rugby anthem of the united Irish team. The fact that a few of them have Irish descent also helped get the song right. This is yet another example of the great culture and spirit of rugby. It's known to be a rough game for gentlemen (whereas football is an elegant game for scoundrels LOL). Relevant vid:

Such a tragedy. A small Brazilian team traveling to Colombia for the game of their life, has ended up dead in a plane crash. Only five survivors, three of the players among them. And this was supposed to be a big celebration, the first leg of the Copa Sudamericana final. An investigation is underway on the reasons for the crash, but facts are facts. A whole club has been decimated, sending the Brazilian nation into deep grief. A number of the major regional clubs are now calling for the regional football association to award the trophy to the club of Chapecoense posthumously. That's the least they could do to honour the memory of a hugely talented squad robbed of life and glory in their prime. Life can be so cruel... (source)

A new experiment is going to test the assumption of General Relativity that the speed of light has always been constant. The idea that light might have run faster in the early Universe is not new; there are alternative explanations to such a hypothesis, in that it wasn't light that was faster but time ran differently in those extreme conditions (the so called time dilation). We'll see what happens. (source)

This is starting to bother on pathetic. Hillary's campaign is now contemplating the possibility of aiding the Wisconsin recount. Exactly what they're hoping to achieve, remains a mystery. (source)

You know Fermi's paradox. How come no intelligent ETs have called us back yet? Well, the most obvious answer is, maybe there are none of them around, in our cosmic vicinity. Or civilisations tend to destroy themselves upon reaching a certain point of development. But here's a new look on the issue: what if the first ETs that we encounter are something like the Cylon? Meaning, AI robots? (source)

A review of the new movie Arrival (warning: contains spoilers).

I have to admit, I was impressed.

The older Dr Hawking gets, the more pessimistic his utterances become. Now he's pinpointing the end of the world within... the next thousand years or so. IA going rogue, a genetically created virus, or a nuclear war - those are the possible culprits. And he urges us to colonise the Solar system and beyond. And spread humankind's problems and shortcomings to other stars, heh. (source)

Remember Cristiano Ronaldo's rants about Iceland? Now Thomas Mueller seems to be dissatisfied with the level of the opposition during Germany's game with San Marino. But credit where credit is due: the Sammarinese guys responded in a very smart and funny way. (source)

The Boks lost to England, as expected, displaying some of the same old problems that we've gotten accustomed to seeing. Our guys still have a lot of work to do. (source)

Let's not forget the big game in the weekend. In the same week that the Cubs broke the duck of Billy the goat and won the so called World Series in baseball, the Windy City hosted another great show: the international rugby test between Ireland and the world dominators, the All Blacks from New Zealand. And who would've thought the Saturday night would offer such a drama... and such a shocking outcome! Ireland wrote history and prevailed for the first time in 111 years. It had it all: a bag full of tries, and big hits, and huge drama in the end! (source)

Yeah, you knew this was coming. At long last, Election Day is upon y'all, my American friends. It's been a wild, wild race. And some may've prayed that it could be over way ago. Still, it's going to be a thrilling, if a bit anxious day for everyone. The long campaign is coming to a climactic ending. And I've bothered to make an Open Thread about it on T_P. Let's see how this goes. (thread)

Alright, then. A promise is a promise. This poll here was the final trigger to prompt my comment on my own political stances, at long last. Dont be shocked.

I commented there, but here it is.
 
My political manifestoCollapse )

/ A
 
[edit] I offered a solution, but under one condition. People's minds should change first, then people's way of perceiving the world, and with that, the prerequisites for my model coming reality would be in place. But not before that. I'm fully aware that we're not ready for that stage of society yet. Not so fast. We've seen what shit can happen when people are hurrying to jump into things they know little or nothing about, too fast.

And yet, the picture i viewed is ultimately the solution. And it WILL come true one day. Maybe not in my lifetime, but still, it will.

Either that or we'll go back to being monkeys. Or we'll just blow this whole place up.
