Media in the various countries tell the stories their audience are familiar with. Less "education" needed, more time for mindless violence.

I suppose so, but how many people really knew much about the political machinations between the various powerful families that made up the Vatican's Cardinals as they attempt to secure Papal power or about 700-A.D. Norwegians getting ready to set to sell for Britain and fuck things up other than just, "Heh, longship go brrrr"?

It can still be mindless violence, just spice it up... the beautiful forests and hills of the Carpathians, the bustling ports capped by massive cathedrals in Constantinople, the jungles and plains of Eastern Africa lined with kings with so much gold it is more common than water...


I may be dead wrong on people being able to accept violence and political intrigue because it's too "foreign", but some of the most successful movies of all time take place on a planet with floating rocks, blue-skinned tentacle aliens, a racoon who really likes guns so idk.

Not a movie I've seen, but rather one(s) I want to see...

As studios are more and more being allowed to depict heavy violence, I would love to see a movie or series set during the reigns of Vlad III "the Impaler" ... either following his story or at least in Wallachia at the time. Firstly, the setting is just so "alien" to Western Europe (as so much of Eastern Europe is) and secondly it's just a really interesting era of horror, violence and political intrigue... maybe something akin to "The Borgias" or GoT but without the dragons.

Really I just want to see T.V. branch out and start telling tells from Eastern Europe, Africa, Caucasia, India, Russia... there are so many amazing folk-tales and settings that are just made to be told in a modern setting but no one bothers to tell them or to expand on them.

Before anyone gets insensed, note that the Beaverton News Agency from whence the above article comes, is like a  counterpoint to The Onion.

Meet the unvaccinated: check out this undeserved sympathetic coverage of a complete idiot where we the media provide them a platform to spew their deadly nonsense

Quote
With about 10% of the population saying they will not get vaccinated against the deadly COVID-19 virus, we here at The Beaverton have decided to follow every other media outlet in Canada and do our own sympathetic portrayal of an anti-vaxxer, giving them national coverage to spew their debunked conspiracy theories.

Quote
As Shannon continued to say things about Bill Gates and growing third eyes we could not help but wonder how we had gotten here. Why were we profiling this idiot as opposed to say, a team of scientists who could explain how mRNA vaccines work? Were the hundreds of thousands of views (generating nearly 3 dollars in advertising revenue) really worth it? But then our editor yelled at us to pay attention so we snapped back and Shannon was still talking. Of course she was.

Florida sets a new record today thanks to the moronic governor Death-santis and hordes of faux news lovers. People still unconvinced covid is real as they lay in their death beds.
I read that today.  Doctors diagnose Covid, and sick patients are insisting it's something else, some while gasping for air as they deny it.

I would say the level of stupidity has reached "phenomenal."  I don't remember seeing such a level so widely spread across the country.

If eagles can fuck while in flight and screaming towards the ground to certain death, I am certain dinosaurs can figure out a way.

How fucking stupid can one be? Stop caring for the assholes; isolate them in a circus tent and take our hospitals back for the vaccinated.

If there are future generations of Americans what will they teach about us.

To the chant of USA!  USA!  USA!

United Stupid Americans.  Too stupid to live.

I mean...porcupines, elephants, rhinos, and alligators get it on all the time (probably right this second somewhere) and that's equally puzzling, so I'm not losing sleep over dino mating.
