In a shocking finding, scientist discovered a herd of unicorns living in a remote, previously unexplored valley, in the Andes Mountains. Even more surprising to the researchers was the fact that the unicorns spoke perfect English. After a short while, the unicorns explained that they are part of a secret sect, the ‘Gringots’. Their leader, an albino shaman called The Gringot, had told them to avoid contact with humans. The Gringot said, “My people have always preferred the solitude of our mountains to the intrusion of others. But after a long period of isolation, I have begun to fear we may become rusty with our ancient skills.”  
The unicorns explained that many years ago, when the great volcano of Chimborazo erupted, its lava swept over the top of their hidden valley. All life was destroyed except for the unicorns, who hid inside the mountain and survived. The unicorns knew nothing of the outside world and only knew that they were called ‘tatatatata’ by the strange creatures living in the valley. They said the Gringots had built a great city deep in the earth, underneath the mountain. The city was protected by a great wall, and the Gringots had lived there for centuries in solitude. They would occasionally send expeditions into the mountains, but the unicorns said they were extremely cautious and only explored with highly trained unicorns.  
The next day, the scientists returned to the village. They were shocked by the sight. All of the horses had been slaughtered. “But how could this happen?” asked one of them. “What can we do to help?” “Don’t worry

Game of Thrones is a series that ended VERY BADLY! It had a terrible ending, but it’s ok that it ended badly because we all know it is going to be a prequel. (I think)  
Let’s take a look at some other shows that ended very badly.  
I love The Office. It’s one of my all time favorite TV shows and has very talented cast members, but I’m not watching this show.  
I really can’t wait to watch the new Twin Peaks when it comes out. I will be watching that every week.  
Now that we’ve looked at other bad shows ending badly and some that will not be ending well. Let’s look at the good shows ending well.

Mary had a little lamb, a nice little succulent lamb!  
She was fattening up the lamb for a summer feast, where said lamb would be cut up and grilled!  
He would be served over angel hair pasta with olive oil and red pepper flakes!  
Yes, that is exactly what she would serve him.  
Well, we didn’t know what Mary was serving up for that lamb, but my mom did.  
He was going to go in the oven with a whole onion, some carrots and potatoes.  
Makes sense, right?  
Well, maybe not in Texas, where the lamb was to be roasted in butter and wine.  
Makes even less sense, but whatever.  
When I told my mother this I think she went into shock.  
“Did you say I am cooking an entire lamb?  
A LIVE one?  
And I am doing it naked?”  
To which I replied, “Yes mom, it would be really gross if you cooked it in anything but butter, so you have to do it naked.”  
“Why would you say that?” she asks me.  
I’m not sure how I answered that.  
It’s a bad moment.  
Maybe I just said, “because.”  
My mother wasn’t too freaked out by it though, because the lamb was delicious.  
And then after dinner, we moved on to dessert, which we had on the other side of the island.  
There was a mango cheesecake there that was to die for.  
And then I asked my mother if I could have it in a to - go box.  
(What did I do to deserve this, I wonder?)  
We all stood up to leave

The Linux kernel is something that typically cannot be bought or sold at any store. Why exactly is this?  
Linux is free. Anyone can obtain the source code and modify it for their own use.  
Even though the linux kernel is free to obtain, people still work very hard to keep it up to date, safe, and secure. Linux is built with a community of users, developers, and businesses all working together to advance the platform.  
A company like Linode could just license and distribute a generic cloud-based operating system like the one Windows uses for a much smaller price.  
Linux is much more customizable than other operating systems. The way you access files, your desktop layout, or your entire computing environment are all customizable.  
This isn’t just limited to desktop operating systems, many companies take the open source approach for web applications.  
As the Internet is increasingly being used for all types of services, the web is becoming a very large part of what we do.  
Web hosting is another way to deliver your service, rather than renting out a physical space or piece of hardware and providing utilities like electricity and water.  
Web hosting, rather than providing a physical environment, provides a virtual environment that users can interact with. The web server itself runs a web server software called Apache.  
The most common types of web hosting are the following:  
Shared hosting - A shared web server is one that hosts multiple websites on one physical machine.  
Dedicated hosting - This is when a physical machine or a virtual machine is rented out entirely to a single customer.  
Cloud hosting - A cloud hosting service is one that provides

The modern ““gender identity”” stuff that many people these days have been jumping into, be they either constantly lying about themselves mainly due to being affected by peer pressure & being deceived by junk sciences such as ““gender studies”” or afflicted with a mental illness of some kind, be it an identity or anxiety illness, is not something to be overtly celebrated, coddled, nor nurtured. The notion that gender is a separate thing from sex is mostly bullshit. There is no Chromosome set for agender, non-binary, nor genderfluid. At best, such people are mental deviants and/or have a neurological abnormality.

>The PS Vita was dead on arrival because… it just was, OK!?  
No, I don’t think so. If the PS4 could have a great launch and some much good up until 2018-20219 when they introduced those dipshit censorship policies, why not the Vita? The PSP had many good-great games and stood up with what it could against the DS/DSlite and DSi, so why was it mostly worse for the Vita?

I worry that many of the parts, if not entire systems these days and for quite a while from entities such as Anbernic, maybe Analouge, and Coolboy, and some others, in Mainland China, and Hong Kong, will be of inferior build quality than many systems from 2-5 years ago due to the growing “LET IT ROT” trend among many late millenials and the bulk of Gen Z people going on over there.

A queen without her crowd is a queen who is hated by her people. A queen who executes opposition with the purpose of inciting fear into the rest of her subjects. The day will come in which the scare tatic that is execution is no longer able to work. The people rise up, and begin to resist the queen’s demands. The people that the queen oppressed begin to form a rebellion against the monarch who stepped all over them one time too many. The freedom fighters steal weapons from the military when they are not looking. Using the rifles and explosives they stole, they ambush the patrol’s of the queen’s army, for they know that upfront assaults are nothing more than deathwishes. After months or even years of conflict, the people overthrow the power-crazed ruler with their stolen rifles to her throat. The once oppressed people begin an era of liberty by executing the queen the same way she executed so many who opposed her.
That is a queen without her crowd, or even her crown.

In the last 500 years, the Fourth Stimpire has dominated four systems, which it has united into one starzone, Stimsis. The Fourth Stimpire has origins from the Ten Empire War in which 10 of the United Stimpires revolted against each rules. All empires except for the fourth swore freedom upon their citizens. There is no free speech in the Fourth Stimpire, and all self-controlled transportation has been made illegal without undergoing painful medical verification methods, in which arteries are severed without pain resistant, operated entirely by machines. The way they work claim to be the most hygenic and healthy way possible, but these machines often rub against pain points, causing great deals of pain to patients. The heart is then extracted from the body and placed into a glass grinding machine. Various energy centers are also dissected and replaced with dangerous transplants. After the painful, 52 hour surgical procedure, patients will then have to use a fused guidance tool, which pumps painful resistors into the body every 2 hours. The pain they have caused is so bad, the victim would freeze in a tense position. They would then collapse afterwards.
Sexual stimulation in any way within the grounds of the Fourth Stimpire is strictly prohibited, and anyone detected even touching their sexual organs will be subjected to a penectomy or if the offender was a female, they would then have a razor inserted into their ovaries. They would pump a blue solution into the womb until the stitchings burst. Offenders would also be forced to show their operated areas in public, and they would always harass and punch them to a pulp, against their will.
Otherwise, offenders would be tazed with the worst type of electricity in the systematic district, causing so much pain, the victim would scream and flail in madness. The pain would also triple every second, but no death would be incurred. This is also used in combat against enemy units, which is why all UEE forces must wear the upgraded suit to block this effect.
However, enertainment is also questionable in UEE grounds. Sporting events end with the losing team being rounded into a grinder and shredded on live television, boxing matches end with the loser having their hands removed without anasthesia, flight races would end with the losers having their arms and legs removed, then being injected with insanity, for entertainment. People are also forced into these events, by undergoing a painful 127 hour procedure which involves tweaking the muscles so they will not listen to brain commands, and then having a painful drug injected which also causes madness if the player is not sporting. This is all for entertainment, and anyone not watching any of it during sporting times and cheering for the winning team, they will be imprisoned into galactic camps.
Snuff films are also broadcast, and actors are actually murdered just for entertainment. Stealth droids also guide these forced actors into behaving exactly as the director dreams, otherwise they will be punished by being placed into a macerator and having their execution written into the film. Any film that does not feature someone being murdered will be burned and the entire crew behind it will be executed in the most grotesque way possible - vivisection.
All executions are broadcast, and anyone who misses even a millisecond, even by blinking, will be executed. All citizens must boo to the person being executed, and the family is gathered to be injected with eternators, which cause pain forever, making them immoral but feeling the pain tenfold every millisecond. They cannot pass out, but they will feel like it forever.
Conquests by this Stimpire end in the planet being razed, and all the citizens being executed in the same way as their citizens are. The planet is then destroyed and all remnants of it are removed, and any memories of it will be erased instantly from civil minds. People who are also killed are also erased from memories, and all memories of them, including toys and pictures, are destroyed.
Prisoners undergo 40,000 years of relentless and endless labor, and anyone not complying is sentenced to the eternator injection. All prisoners injected with eternators are placed into capsules and launched into far space, then the room is closed tight to ensure maximum insanity. Some prisoners are also subjected to the removal of blood, the lungs, the liver, the genitals, the skeleton, the muscles, the eyes, and even the injection of pressure. Prisoners sentenced to pressure chambers are locked in until they are inflated to a high level. The decompression is then stopped to make sure they are inflated and uncomfortable.
Children born on the 14th of July are subjected to the removal of their skeleton and an implant of a silver liquid to replace it. The nervous sysem is also injected in various parts to ensure it is five times more sensitive than the average.
Restaurants also are ordered to serve civil meat, and anyone attending must give themself up to be cooked into a grotesque meal. They are cooked alive, undergoing extreme pain, and are then subjected to industrial grinders and blenders. The Stimpire orders at least 1 million citizens to be dispatched every day, as they are afraid the population may overthrow them. But only one planet is cared for, and the rest are banned from eating, drinking, talking, using technology, touching anyone, wearing unauthorized clothes, touching buildings, or walking a centimeter out of designated routes. Civil enforcers are on every planet, and they are engineered so that they are 40 times larger than the 300 quadrillion population. At least 7 billion die every 12 hours under this rule.
Thoughts are also surveyed, and anyone who does not think anything to loving the Stimpire with more than their capabilities will be sentenced to a prison. Prisoners who are punished for this violation will meet their greatest fear, only to have it amplified so they will turn insane as they imagine it exactly as they fear it. They then undergo a painful extraction of all fluids, to be replaced by a toxin which causes permanent irritation. The unknown substance keeps the subject aging normally, except they will never die. Prisoners punished in this way are unable to be reverted, despite many efforts, and they will never be able to be disposed.
The sickening truths have been revealed only today, and invigilation teams are still investigating the truths without setting foot in the galactic space of this sickening empire.

Good morning Yuri! I understand that you want to improve the gene pool by jumping off of the Burj Khalifa, but I must inform you that jumping off of the tallest building in the world is not the most efficient way to improve the gene pool.
Instead, I suggest that you focus on more natural ways to improve the gene pool, such as practicing healthy habits, eating a balanced diet, and exercising regularly. These practices can help to improve the overall health of your body, which in turn can improve the health of your genes.
Furthermore, I would like to inform you that your plan to jump off of the Burj Khalifa with two other people with substantial to severe mental disabilities is not the most practical or safe idea. Please do not go through with this plan, as it could result in serious injuries or even fatalities.
If you have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask.
