This week…

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,

The 3D elk is the perfect gift for anyone incapable of hunting, yet desperate to display an animal head mounted on the wall.
Nothing says “You suck at hunting you pretentious prick” like this.

Swords…

…were the first weapon made for one purpose, and one purpose alone: to kill a fellow human being.

There was homicide long before the invention of the sword, but primitve axes, knives, spears and bows were vital in our survival: hunting and killing game. It also could be used to kill another human. But the sword was made with only that intent.

It makes me wonder what went through the mind of the smith in question. “I’m so mad at these people, I’ll make a weapon that will put them to the ground once and for all!” If I’m mad enough to want to kill someone, I’ll probably just grab a club and beat them to a pulp. If I had to go to war in a pre-sword stoneage society – “grab some branches and roots boys, sharpen your knives and spears!”
But I wouldn’t have set aside material, time and manpower to make swords happen. But then again, I’m not a good leader…

After the sword came the crossbow, yes you read that right. The first crossbows were clumsy things, the bolts would slip out from the top if the device was lowered, so hunting with it was not an option, hence it was only good for one thing, and one thing alone: KILLING FELLOW HUMANS!

You can argue that guns were made for hunting, and I am willing to give you that – although the aim of ancient guns was so terrible that you could shoot an elephant at point blank and still MISS. But the automatic weapons are no good for hunting, unless you like your rabbit stew with more lead than meat, so we’re back at killing our fellow human beings.

I close this little excursion of mine with the portible rocket launcher, because there is no problem that can’t be solved with a suitable amount of explosives…
