While I recall seeing ol' Rajneesh and his fleet of Rolls Royces on the news in the early 80's, I had no idea the escalating brazen levels of psychopathy exhibited by his inner circle—the worst of which appears to have been mitigated, fortunately, by corresponding levels of incompetence.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gwx9nqknu-c

The video starts out with early history and fairly standard cult-origin-story buildup; but by about half way through things have turned almost cartoonishly psychotic.

Scientology, even at the height of its culty shenanigans, never aspired to these levels of crazy-stupid.

:ugly_08:

I’m never surprised by the ability of the human mind for self-delusion, especially when reinforced by permission to yield to our base instincts and hedonism. Then there’s the power of the evil, charismatic mind and the lieutenant who will commit crimes in the name of the leader, all for the sake of sustaining a privileged lifestyle.

Ostensibly this was intended to mock Trump?


https://twitter.com/RinAldrin/status/1094439407212408832

(The Trump carriage in the parade was actually blasting this Sabaton track, though it was hard to hear in the original video. This edit syncs up the album track to the clip.)

My understanding is the words on the Twitter Sword are literally "your tariffs", but because of its rhyming with a popular Italian phrase, translates idiomatically to something more approximating "fuck your tariffs."

Someone commented: "Trump should buy it, put it in the South Lawn next to the Gorilla Channel antenna"

I think Navratilova is correct.

It's not ideal for 1v1 situations, but that's what the DM server is supposed to cater to. Also, there are 7 other maps besides DM4 (actually 8 for the automatic mymap map between dm8 and dm1). I think there are more positives than negatives.

It happens to better players too. I know I've been in first, or second place, only to die and spawn right next to the other leading player multiple times in a row, and having to dodge rockets in a narrow corridor without any weapons myself (other than blaster).

It's not the best for 1v1 situation
