Turn in your passport, you're being deported to Sweden for not being A REAL AMERICAN

I live in California, remember? Most non-liberals already consider it a foreign country as is and keep hoping "the big one" will either detach us from the country or sink us into the ocean 2012 style (never mind both are geologically impossible). XD

Seriously, though, can someone tell me what's up with this? It's clearly not a Shrike. Is it some kind of third party aftermarket thing?

Edit: Swedish chicks are pretty hot, so it wouldn't be all bad.

Jade Helm 20 canceled over COVID-19 concerns.

Dang it, no martial law, illegal gun seizures by US Special Forces, or FEMA death camps this year.

Dude, when I was studying abroad in undergrad, I had a guy in my cohort who was obsessed with going to Sweden because he thought Swedish girls were all hot and easy lays. Let’s just say he wound up very disappointed. (Side note: I think he wound up in a relationship for several years with someone else from my cohort.)

Watching Escape from LA for the first time in a while. Even for a movie made in the latter half of the 90s, the CGI in some parts of it hasn't aged well.

Geno Silva died yesterday.

In case you aren't familiar, he portrayed The Skull, the hitman who killed Tony Montana at the end of Scarface.

We're all thinking it, so I'm gonna say it: Skynet.

And I was just busy killing Skynet quite a few times while developing my page for Terminator: Resistance. However, I wouldn't be so quick to say that these new drones are revolutionary. Here are two articles outlining how using drones, let alone AI-piloted ones, doesn't actually save money and may be more ineffective than human pilots in capable planes--when your own ass is on the line, that survival instinct can really kick you into gear.
