Funny thing is, "packad" is Swedish slang for wasted, and the proper meaning of the word is, well, packed. Like a bag. Funny world.

Yarp I recently found out that packed is actually used in formal british english so everything's cool now :angel:

Years ago I read an account about Russian soldiers "executing" a few Chechen rebel POWs. The female sniper they had captured (snipers being the most hated combatants) was handed to the troops by their commander and told they could do whatever the fuck they liked. So they savagely gang-raped her repeatedly all night and then tied her to a tree the next morning. They set some explosives under her with a really long fuse stretched out on the ground beneath her, so that she could watch it burn down second by second, which she did. The same squad had another male POW and he was also tied to a tree, but they stripped him and doused him with honey and left him there to be eaten alive by the insects and baked in the sun. Your Wiki link just reminded me of that :D

One thing I always wonder about with that kind of stuff is, like, the moment when you're about to go to sleep or sitting in a waiting room. Y'know, times of minimal distraction, when your thoughts so easily might wander to a woman you hideously tortured and killed. Just wondering.

Gomli 2011-12-13 08:50

Satisfaction I guess 'cause you really need to be fucked up in the head to perform such things

Amadeus 2011-12-13 09:33

Yeah, but I'm not all that sure about that. I mean, judging from the sheer number of people who've committed the most horrendously creative acts with one or more fellow human beings, I'm tempted to think that the capability is in all of us. That is, if we don't watch ourselves, circumstances might just put us in the position where the barriers go down. Like, I'm sure what was going through the minds of those soldiers was the sight of several buddies toppling over, their heads turned to bloody pulp by a sniper bullet. But afterwards, when circumstances change again. Yea.

Yeah, in hysteria I may or may not have tried to run someone down.

Amadeus 2011-12-14 13:13

Oh, don't you worry. We have books that remember what you did the summer of 1841.

L,B'XXX 2011-12-14 17:42

lol I didn't think it was that long ago. Time flies.

Yea, it's quite amazing what you can achieve with a horse drawn carriage, a determined mindset and the concept of statute of limitations.

Nice.

Gomli 2012-01-18 11:43

one of the best protest actions so far. let's see how the governement will work this out

JoeYngVai 2012-01-19 01:51

Next we just need a FB blackout... oh boy would that be effective haha

Paddy 2012-01-20 20:35

SOPA and PIPA are so fuckin' Draconian that it makes me wonder if the authors intended it to get this reaction so that their "real" bill, which is perhaps only slightly less Draconian, will be accepted because everyone will think it's a compromise and will settle for it. It's like a horny mod on an internet forum saying to a forum member "send me 5000 cash and a nude photo or I'll frame you for soliciting sex from minors" and the forum member saying "but I haven't got 5000!" and then me saying "oh alright then, just send me the nude photo" and then Dylan saying "oh thank you Paddy, thank you!" thus getting what I wanted all along.

Amadeus 2012-01-21 04:36

If that was their plan I think it has backfired. I've been involved with two of the groups organizing the protests and I think that one of the results of all this is a bunch of watchdog organizations. Next time they try something we'll be waiting - and this time a lot of the knowledge and mailing lists are already in place from the getgo.
