Жители Дагестана избили членов уик за фальсификацию выборов

Белорусский суд: наличие у обвиняемого адвоката свидетельствует о его виновности и о заблаговременном планировании преступления, являясь отягчающим обстоятельством.

Dolphin runs at 720/60 even on my 5-year-old laptop with integrated gfx, if people need more reasons not to buy the new mario rom collection

@gekko my favorite example of "reality is unrealistic" is how the movie Gladiator was going to have the gladiators do product placement for contemporary Roman products and services, but audiences would never accept it as authentic even though it happened IRL

@maruff Copying content and claiming it as your own is ethically wrong - That's plagiarism and I can understand why you find it difficult to agree that copying is not theft .../2 #lida103
