Pussy Riot verdict caps Putin's hundred days

From USA Today: Pussy Riot verdict caps Putin's hundred days




What? It's important world news. I just thought we should remain informed about developing events. No lulz here. Nope. Just news. Legitimate, USA Today-provided news.

You can giggle like a schoolgirl if you like, but people being arrested and detained for protesting Putin isn't exactly lulz-worthy.

I know. Completely serious. Nothing funny about the Pussy Riots. The Pussy riots are serious business. I pray we never experience anything like the Pussy riots over here.

For five months.

Russia has serious problems. Putin getting a third term is one of them. Actually it's basically a fourth term, since he and Medvedev are buddies.

The fact that you don't know that it's the name of a band, not the name of the protests.... Sometimes I forget that there are grown adults that still giggle like schoolboys every time someone says vagina. :roll:

"We were looking for authentic genuineness and simplicity and we found them in our punk performances. Passion, openness and naivety are superior to hypocrisy, cunning and a contrived decency that conceals crimes. The state’s leaders stand with saintly expressions in church, but their sins are far greater than ours. We’ve put on our political punk concerts because the Russian state system is dominated by rigidity, closedness and caste. Аnd the policies pursued serve only narrow corporate interests to the extent that even the air of Russia makes us ill."

Yes. Much better that I obsess over things that do not effect me and are completely beyond my ability to change, let alone improve.

I sometimes forget that there are pretentious adults who think that knowledge requires them to have a stick up their ass.

My question is what possessed them to come up with a name like that in the first place?

They were tired of Dick Revolt and wanted to offer music fans an alternative.

They're punks, and pro-feminist(not to be confused with misandry like it commonly is now a days). That should be easy to understand.

You're surprised that a Punk Rock Band has a sexually provocative name?

Really?

No, not really. I was trying to steer away from another full blown argument. And if my child-like innocence and naivete is the price I have to pay for that then so be it.

I'm giggling my ass off this conjunction of words supposedly used in a non-humourous and non-ironic manner:

Empath, how dare you giggle at something that is totally serious and should never be made light of.

Go sit in the corner with Jon Stewart until you realize that todays current events and/or news should never be joked about.

I ask myself that of every band I've ever been the drummer of an album for. The worst being "Piss Lips."

*holds it in*


But yeah, on a serious note, this is yet ANOTHER distressing bit of news if'n you like liberty and/or democracy.

I'm still thinking about seizing the Royal Newfoundland Regiment's armory and leading an armed coup to make this place a sovereign bastion of freedom, free from insurance corporations defending their policyholder's killers to avoid upholding a contractually-agreed-upon-payout, and senior government officials declaring diplomatic customs for centuries are null and void, etc.

...silly Occupy kids thinking they'd accomplish anything more by whining and chanting in groups than their hippie parents did forty years before...

Y'all are invited, but remember - to defend liberty, you'll have to acquiesce to me being a tyrant (a benevolent one, but still, someone's gotta centralise power to cut out the deadwood, burrocratic guff, and corrupt grafting parasites) ;)

I probably shouldn't be laughing as hard as I am at the onomatopoeia of a tiny fart.
