Don't worry, comrade.  They are totally different in that you have a new pool of top tier vehicles to smash in your face. :trollface:

Hahaha ... and I was thinking that the Rum and Coke combo was to be the diversifcation gimmick tailored for OUR market ... actually, I think it would be kind of neat, IF it could be stored without the coke going totally flat ...

wow! Didn't realize that Coke was that mutagenic overseas ... urggg ... Coke with fiber ... hmmm.   Well, hopefully no one suggests, Curry flavored coke ... 

 

Pepsi does a lot of weird stuff in Japan too.  I have a "christmas" pepsi that taste likes cake.

Eh, I don't know... the M.11/39 would probably be as miserable to play as the Lee. 

 

At tier 1, it would have a decent 37mm cannon, 30mm of frontal armor and decent-ish mobility. Which would be offset by the gun being hull mounted. I'd say it would be quite balanced and not miserable at all. Especially when you get maps like Himmelsdorf a lot, where being able to fire around a corner would be invaluable.

Now I want rum.

 

This may also be because I'm at work, and not have anything to do with the discussion.

World of Coke in Atlanta has lots of different flavors from all over the world. It's been a while since I've been but from what I remember the watermelon-flavored Coke from China was pretty good. Italian stuff is basically just carbonated water though. The rest of the flavors were not particularly good or bad IIRC, just different.

I wouldn't refuse  if someone would offer me a bottle right about now.  And no one would be the wiser, as I work from home.

Just how much looting do you think is going to happen 3000m below the surface? This isn't the Java Sea wrecks that are decently shallow and easy-ish to access for illegal salvaging or artifact recovery.

 

For enough money anything might be tried...this is a good thing though that no one ought to be able to mess with that wreck.

Yes particularly in this age of unmanned submersibles ... its only a matter of time before the tech is scaled up for relatively cheap deep sea exploitation.

Coca-Cola is expanding into the alcoholic drinks market.  Only in Japan, though, so don't expect an official Rum and Coke anytime soon.

 

It's not out of the question, we already have stuff like that in the U.S.

Do an audacious lie and ethical bankruptcy underpin much of the "corporate personhood" doctrine?

Well, I can see that happening with 'generic' products ... but I would think that something with sizable brand name recognition ... would fall prey to political red tape (for U.S. ratification and consumption)  ... oddly enough, I could see the business rationalization of having significant experimentation done in international markets ... the parent company gets marketing data plus it can likely pull the plug on anything to far outside the condoned product image ... with plausible deniability if the feces really hits the fan ...

If you haven't kept up on the news Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Rowley confirmed that ex Russian spy Skripal was attacked with an unidentified nerve agent, he and his daughter are in a coma and the first Police officer of scene is now in a serious condition too after being contaminated as well.

Somehow I think having someone just shoot Skripal dead would have been much more deniable.

In a word, no.

The fictional legal person, corporate personhood, is common throughout the world, and has been for quite a long time, no matter what route it took to get there in the US. Sometimes it's quite explicit and not just standard legal doctrine. Witness, for example, the German Basic Law. "Fundamental rights shall also apply to domestic artificial persons insofar as the nature of such rights shall permit." (Article 19). Given that Article 6 is 'freedom of expression', the logical and very clear conclusion is that a company in Germany has the right to free speech.

scratches head on this one ... I was thinking the same thing ... it sounds almost like an espionage plot device to use some exotic chemical or nerve agent to kill ... that is unless that was the goal .. to intimidate without absolute proof.  The statement being, betray us and you will end up like this ...

The brazenness of the attack sends a message of its own. It says "If we want to hurt to you and yours, we'll do it whenever, wherever and however we want. Nothing and no one can stop us." Just shooting him wouldn't have the same effect. It also helps the Kremlin's domestic tough-guy image by owning the attack without owning up to it. That the perpetrators could've just as easily killed a bus or train car full of people says something, too.
