Well, who does? That's not just a British thing. Its everybody.

I honestly can't believe they've kept the Euro countries under wing for so long as is. I mean, if they tried that shit over here with the US, Canada, Mexico, and all the South American countries all tied to one system like that it would not fly. The "Amero"...lmao.

Imagine some open border shit going on between the US and Mexico. LOL This side would be empty in like half a fucking day. Hell even I would go over there and crash at Robio's place or something. Feed me Robio, you must have huge bags of weirdly flavored candy corn stuff and oddly concocted spirits.

Has anybody played Tokyo Mirage Sessions yet?

By anybody, I mean Robio.



I'm still 2 weeks away from it. I'm dead broke. My hope was my worthless children would order it for me for Father's Day.  Didn't happen. Only a matter of time though.

I took the family to see Finding Dory and we all loved it.  I was a little lukewarm to it at first, but overall, I may have enjoyed it more than the first.  Ed O'Neill's Hank was awesome.

Okay that's fine. You can come on over. But you have to examine my hemorrhoids very closely. That's the cost of drinking my liquor.

I started playing FF 14. So far it has been fairly straightforward MMO stuff, nothing special.

But

There is something about the game, the setting, the music, the characters, that triggers a heavy nostalgia vibe in me, like a love letter to so many FF games but that also brings back memories of the times in my life I have played them. It's weird. Makes me remember times past, and friends gone. Sometimes it makes me a bit sad. I spent like five minutes today doing nothing but stare at a moonlit bay, listening to the music and thinking of stuff.

You certainly seem less biased than everyone else I've talked about the issue gamingeek. Everyone else says "Lol they're racist and just want to leave because they are stupid, it's nothing but benefits if we remain!"

Yeah that is a far too broad interpretation. Firstly the vote was split almost 50/50 so it's not like everyone wanted out of the EU and you can't call half the voting population racist or stupid just because they don't agree with you. We've had decades of politicians telling us about their EU woes, about how they cannot get change or reform within the EU because of large voting blocs within the EU parliament. We've had European courts outruling UK courts, letting terrorists stay in the UK because the EU says they have a right to a family life. There are currently 10'000 foreign criminals in UK jails which cost us hundreds of millions to keep and maintain. The only occasion when you can eject an EU migrant is if they are a direct and current threat to public safety. So for someone who has come in and for instance raped someone, been in jail for 3 years and come out. We can't get rid of them unless they are deemed a direct threat. This includes murderers too.

And no I'm not saying all foreigners are murderers and rapists.

Historically the UK voted in the 70s in a referendum to join the E.E.C - The European Economic Union which was about the single market. Then in 1992 the EEC changed via the Mastericht treaty and changed from an economic group into a political body whose purpose was to work towards more and more integration - to make a kind of USA like body where the European countries would become states and rather than national parliaments having power, the EU would wield power.

We've had the single currency and there are talks about a European army. Anyway apparently in 2004 and 2010 there was this opening up of the EU to Eastern European states and that was significant because there is an economic disparity between more wealthy nations and less wealthy ones. So what you had was large migration of people from poorer states to richer ones. Here in the UK under Tony Blair he estimated 13'000 people would come from Eastern Europe - instead hundreds of thousands came (every year) along with hundreds of thousands from the rest of the world (which has nothing to do with the EU).

Everything within the EU isn't fine and dandy, Greece is still suffering from Austerity and along with Spain they have massive youth unemployment, Italy is having problems too and the immigration from southern European countries has increased to the UK.

It wouldn't be a fallacy to say that the wave of Polish migration in recent years is why people have voted out. And staying within the EU they saw no end to it. So I'm guessing people were willing to sacrifice some economic prosperity for more democractic control - not just on immigration. Or they just didn't believe the increasingly ardent positions being put forward by Remain campaigners that fire and brimstone would rain down from the heavens and annihilate us should we vote out.

You know historically the UK through the British Empire and the Commonwealth (which still exists today) has always had immigration, we have many black and Asian ethnic minorities and the country has been mostly very welcoming and everything has been fine (rising Islamic phobia aside). It's the sheer numbers of immigration in the past 15 years of so. I think there is a tendancy in life, if you have having a hard time of it in life you look around and see someone from another country living a more prosperous life and it's human nature to think "Why are they having a good time and I'm not?" and yeah there is some blame unfairly put on migration.

Ultimately for the people who voted Leave, I think there was one easy equation to make based on their everyday lives and that was the law of supply and demand. If there are less people on a bus you are more likely to get a seat. If there are less patients at a doctors you're more likely to get an appointment. And you take that reasoning and apply it to all sections of everyday life, jobs, homes, schools, hospitals etc. It wasn't so much about race, as about numbers. But whenever someone wanted to talk about immigration the lefties branded them racists and bigots. That's just not going to do anything good.

Our Prime Minister campaigned at the previous general election to get immigration numbers down from the hundreds of thousands to the tens of thousands and he's utterly failed to do so and part of the reason why is because you cannot control EU immigration while being in the EU and you can't reform this position without someone convincing 27 other foreign leaders to agree with you. And the public could see that.

There was also a statistic that was repeated a few times during the campaign, 70 times Britain had voted against something in the EU and 70 times we lost the vote. It's that feeling of ineffectiveness and having no control. The EU wants more and more integration, all Britain wanted was to trade freely and co-operate on security as good friends and neighbours.

Without wanting to go into long debates over the topic, you act as if those problems are exclusive to the UK, while I see all those things happening here too.  

And where exactly did I say that?

SupremeAC said:

Not all benefits can be meassured in cold cash and there will always be a social element in which the more wealthy members will help those with weaker economies.  

If it was called the European Charity fund than it would be different. For a centralised bureacracy in another country to take money on a regular basis from member states without said countries having any say on it where it was spent is wrong.

Britain has been in austerity since 2008 and we've been living with cuts since then and people have been struggling everyday. Meanwhile hundreds of millions in cash was leaving every week in which the taxpayer had no say about it. If there is one thing that characterises the British psyche it's a sense of fairness. When that is lost, people get irked.

We also have an international development fund in the UK in which our MPs use taxpayer money to benefit overseas poorer countries. We already do that to the tune of hundreds of millions, we give money to African and poor Asian countries to help them. We actually paid more money to help with Syrian refugee camps then any other European country, or America for that matter.  We do our bit, I don't think we neccesarily see other European Union states as more worthy of our taxpayers money than Ethiopia or India.

SupremeAC said:

People these days only care about the here and now, without looking to both the future and the past.  It's a nationalistic and populistic ideal to think that you can just fold back on yourself as a nation and all the problems will go away.  If anything, your governement won't have anyone to put the blame on when some things turn out for the worse, which is so in vogue in the EU these days.

But it is true that if you aren't part of the European Union you wont have to do certain things because you wont be beholdant to EU laws, rules of policies. You see it as folding away back into yourself, most other people here saw it as being masters of our own destiny to take back control and re-affirm UK democracy. Instead of voting in new politicians who can't change certain aspects of our lives because 27 other countries dont agree with you.

I also find it ironic that someone from Belgium the home country of the EUs' headquarters, is coming up with all these reasons as to why Britain voted this way - telling someone who has been living here for nearly 40 years and understands the politics here more intricatly (I also studied British and American politics). It's exactly that kind of disconnect the EU has, between its politicans and the citizens of its various countries.

I think that if there were other EU countries that had the balls to hold a referendum and actually ask what the public want - then there would be other countries that voted out too. There are already fears about Holland, France and Hungary leaving. I should point out that I don't think the disintegration of the EU is a good thing. But what I do think is that Britain leaving is a wake up call and will probably lead to reform of the EU which will benefit every other country in it.

What's more worrying is this sense of spitefulness from certain politicians in the EU who seem to want to punish Britain for leaving so other countries won't have any ideas about leaving either. Is that the way this idealistic and seemingly benevolent European Ideal of a political body wants to act? What does that say about the EU when they are actively saying they will screw you over should you choose to leave?

So I saw my nephews for the first time since end of 2014.

Interesting, the eldest is getting a bit moaning and teenager like even at 7. The youngest is growing his hair out to look like a chick.

We went back to my place to play Nintendoland.

These kids aren't allowed to play videogames by their parents as they are "too violent" wtf?

So anyhow, when I was their age, I assume I was playing NES games and was never that bad. I tried them with Mario Kart and wii remotes for motion turning..... damn... couldn't get it. I kept telling them to hold the controller horizontally but it wasn't happening so apparently the game "sucked".

Nintendoland was far better, but yeah sometimes in Mario chase they would run headfirst into a wall or around in circles. We enjoyed the Luigis Mansion game and taking turns a the ghost but the youngest got scared after a while by the spooky music and sound effects. Played the Pikmin one once, which was okay but only because I could use my whistle to call them and force them on.

The game they loved the most was the Zelda game - but I only have one motionplus remote so they argued constantly on who got the sword. They were crappy as bowmen.

It did get very tiring by the end, but if I had two motionpluses then I probably could have left them to it for hours.

I was kind of digging Berserk Musou, but I have to admit the gore is a little off-putting. I don't mind some, but this seems to be a little too much for my taste. And it's not like I really have anything to play it on anyway.
