Oh wow, Climax Fighters added the secondary Riders after all (I don't see Gatack and Kaixa though :( ), but now they're even adding Showa Riders. I'll take it ! Text near the end says there are 28 Riders total and Black is the 28th. I first thought they would stop early but it looks like they're going far enough, as usual we'll definitely get a bunch more as DLC.
Oh, and some local battle royal gameplay in the middle of a long video.

A lot of things in the Bible is copied from other stuff. Creation of man from mud by God, then that man learning to be human at the hands of a woman ? Enkidu in the Epic of Gilgamesh.
The Epic of Gilgamesh referenced the flood stories of Utnapishtim/Ziusudra/Atrahasi, but the Sumerian creation myth isn't the Epic of Gilgamesh. And both of them as we know them today are simply a compilation of older texts that already existed at the time anyway, but we have temples dedicated to the gods in these stories that are older than the stories as we know them, so we can have a decent idea of how old they really are.

Oldest one that we have written records of, yeah, the Sumerian creation myth. Otherwise it's safe to assume that there was a religion in places like Göbekli Tepe and Çatal Höyük and it's much older than Sumer. Sumer is just the oldest civilization with a written language, and then there's the earliest "version" of unified Egypt that only had ideograms (not written language) that developed in the same era as Uruk.

A bit hard to do when you're doing the hacking off *after* the shooting, and we know they already did a bunch of reshoot and didn't have much time for more.

Apparently it was supposed to have much longer introductions to each character (like over 50 extra minutes) but for some reason, some complete retards at Warner demanded that the movie be below 2h, so a lot of it was hacked out with a chainsaw.

I got Lute, and she's +atk-def too (and still haven't seen a single green summon stone). Together with Arvis they'll make a crazy debuff mage pair.
But I'll really need the extra 100 slots in the barracks before I do any more summon. This is just so annoying.

Yeah, the CDC site explicitly says it's the percentage of gay people among the newly infected people in that period, not the percentage of the entire gay population (which is, again, not a known number anyway). It's literally the first full sentence on the page.

You're not supposed to add the 55, 37, and 82. He claimed that 80% of the gay population has an STD, that 55% of the gay population has HIV etc. but these numbers can overlap, there's no indication that it does or doesn't.
If the 37 that have anal cancer all also have HIV, you don't add 37 to 55, it's still 55% that have at least one. 37 have both, and the remaining 18 have only HIV. And then at least 27 more % have one other STD, and maybe the first 55 also have that one on top of those new 27%.
(those numbers are still wrong)

80% of gays have stds, but 174% (55+82+37) of them have stds too?
Hum, that's not how percentages work.
Some of them have one, two, three or more.
But don't worry, what he said wasn't how percentages work either, the link he gave shows percentages of people who NEWLY contracted those STDs, not a percentage of the entire gay population, which is not given anywhere - and definitely not a known number in the country anyway. That's also why the number for syphilis is higher than the full number he gives for the whole gay population (which is an instant giveaway that he doesn't understand these stats).

@ Byakko - Homosexuality is a choice. It can be changed. All of my gay family members were with the opposite sex for years. They made the choice to become gay. They were not born that way. You aren't born to use your sexual organs improperly.
:pwnonk: you're just the gift that keeps on giving, aren't you. You keep on saying stupider and stupider shit to dig yourself in further and further because of your own ignorance.

The acts they partake of. Stop reaching. It's not hateful to dislike the things that somebody does. I hate fishing. Does that mean I hate people who fish?
Right, you keep on telling yourself that. There was a mention earlier that religion wasn't a thing that you could be racist over because religion is something you can change but race isn't and that's why racism is a worse thing than hating a religion -- if you hate homosexuality itself, it's exactly the same as hating all homosexuals for what they are.

@ Byakko - OK man. I hope you can come to grips one day with the hatred you have for a loving faith.
lol, says the guy who calls gays an abomination because a book told him that. Do you not even see your own hate or something

@ Byakko - the evidence is in the Book. You either believe it or you don't.
Looks like you don't understand the definition of the word "evidence" either.

More like if I'm right you probably taught your kids to blindly follow what a single book written thousands of years ago tells them and ignore everything else and attack everyone who tells them otherwise because how dare they, and you destroyed their lives.

It's is not I who offends you it is He.
No. He hasn't said anything to anyone here or anywhere else. People wrote a book in which they claim that they were told all that, but you're only getting it from them, and you're the one who keeps spreading it around and claims it's true even though you have no evidence.
I was a little low on the HIV rate and I fat fingered the syphilis rate-
