Peta got smacked over the head.

Twice.

Good!

First their german office, I think, bitched about the possibility of fishing in Far Cry 5, that it was cruel and inhumane.

First, the connection between violence in a game and violence in real life is NOT there.

Second, you bitch about FISHING, in a first person shooter, where you can (as in have to) kill “humans”? Fail.

Well the developers replied rather humorously, stating that the game takes place in a nice rural environment, and that all aspects of the real outdoors should be reflected. You can swing a shovel around, hunt, fish, throw dynamite and shoot, and the game offers a safe alternative to do just that.

That, at first glance, reads like “In your face!”, but upon further reflection, I’m more inclined of thinking this was a marketing scam. Keep the Peta creeps relevant and more word-of-mouth advertising for FC5.

Second:

Peta lost the case against the photographer who had published the selfie a monkey took with his camera.

Now THAT entire news story invokes a loud and firm “In your face, fuckers!”, because they deserve it.

With those great news, I bid you all a well deserved, nice weekend.

PS, why do I hate Peta? Because they don’t give a fuck about animals.

They steal dogs from families, and euthanize them. They themselves free animals, that can’t survive in the area they are set free in. They would keep pests from being dealt with, they use pictures of animals without permission from said animal – which they wanted the photographer to seize and desist.

In short, they do not care about animal welfare.

In my opinion, they are pretentious, selfrighteous, self serving, assholes, who are worse than Greenpeace (who are preventing things like golden rice to be a thing for everybody).

Take care,

A.
