The Rothschilds have self-destruct mechanisms put inside of all billionaires. If they go off the plantation a bomb will explode in their brains automatically. It may be possible to have the bomb surgically removed or disabled with a sufficiently powerful EMP, I'm not sure.

Merdeka 118 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, has topped out, making it officially the second tallest building in the world and the fourth and probably last "megatall" skyscraper (a skyscraper over 600 meters in height) that will be built for a very long time, maybe 20 years or more. A fifth megatall skyscraper, the Jeddah Tower in Saudi Arabia, has been stalled since 2018 due to a massive "anti-corruption" purge that severed relations with the contractor who was building the tower. If it is ever completed it will be at least 1 kilometer tall.



The Merdeka 118 building is designed to look like the first Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tunku Abdul Rahman, raising his hand declaring independence in 1957.

Dillon is a son of a bitch

Some damn fool accused Dutch of being the best

The CIA has Dillon pushing too many pencils

The cabinet minister always flies on the wrong side of the border

Dutch's squad is a rescue outfit, not assassins, and his men are NOT expendable

Uncle Fat is a macaque from Thailand that was famous for how obese he was. He got up to 60 pounds before he was captured by the zoo, put on a diet, and rewilded.

I always thought purple drank was either some cheap grape flavored soda or Kool-Aid knockoff. Turns out it's a cheap opiod drink.

In 1915, the US Supreme Court ruled that movies were exempt from First Amendment protections because they were a for-profit business. This ruling was overturned in 1952, but several states and cities had film censorship boards, the last of which wasn't abolished until the 1980's.

I know NOTHING
NTFS file systems is proprietary of Microsoft and the attempts to reverse engineer and get utilities working under Linux still haven't fully replaced chkdsk and Microsoft licensed recovery disks if you can't easily mount the disk in another computer with Windows installed. Let's just say I found this out from… personal experience recently.

Two more useless facts to add on.

As typical of newer mediums, the First Amendment was only formally ruled apply to video games in 2005 Though by that point the principle technically existed for other mediums.

New Zealand still has censorship authorities, though rarely employed to the fullest degree, I believe it is the the only censorship authority in the Western world that is still fully aware of its mission and justifying itself with stuff fully with the need for censorship/restrictionon some level over focusing solely on special exceptions (hate speech, pizzagate stuff):
The New Zealand police have the power to enforce the Films, Videos and Publications Classifications Act 1993. All police have the official role of ‘inspectors of publications’. Publications include books, DVDs, posters, music recordings, photos, paintings, T-shirts and computer files.

The Censorship Compliance Unit of the Department of Internal Affairs investigates public complaints, monitors compliance with classification decisions and seizes potentially objectionable publications.

The New Zealand Customs Service aims to prevent objectionable publications being imported into New Zealand. Travellers or importers are required to declare any publications they are bringing into the country that may be considered objectionable.

Fire escape tubes were the main competitor to fire escape ladders.


The benefits are that the tubes can only be used for exiting the building, they can't be used as balcony space or blocked with window air conditioners. You can also slide unconscious people out the chute, where as throwing an unconscious person off a ladder will kill them (probably).

Modern escape tubes are made of flame retardant fabric and can be rolled up and stored inside the building until they are needed.

Escape tubes sound like by far the most fun way to escape from a burning building.
