Although some of his countrymen hail him as a hero, he really comes off as a Fuqing idiot.

22 km shy of his destination after traveling hundreds of km at the mercy of the wind is kind of impressive.

I'm surprised it wasn't a lawn chair with balloons tied to it.

Assclown.
Those islands are shiat.
Yay jingoistic bullshiat gobbled up by a bunch of chinee.
I am thrilled to know that they can all get revved up about this kind of shiat.

So, how do you nominate a headline for HOTY?

Headline HOTW candidate, for sure.

You'd think China would have rescue services available in areas they proclaim to own.

They were out-donated by a goddamned comedy show when an entire island nation was blasted with a typhoon. Humanitarian, they are not.

Ballooning to an island,  that's what Chinese consider a hero?

He knew what he was getting into,  I say let him crash.

Thanks subby for the lol - aaaaand I just realized that lowercase LOL also looks like a drowning victim.  Fantastic!

That's a HOTY candidate for that character subcontest

hasty ambush: loki see loki do: Assclown.
Those islands are shiat.
Or not:


They matter because they are close to important shipping lanes, offer rich fishing grounds and lie near potential oil and gas reserves.

Plus it gives them a nice perch over Southern Japan and all of Taiwan.  They get to drive everyone insane when they're hosting wargames and doing crazy Ivans in the middle of a major shipping zone.

/Send a carrier group in and claim it for the US.
/Since we're all about claiming random shiat, problem solved!

Weirdly enough, mao (with an accent over the A) means cat in mandarin.

Like "Zhe zhi mao shi bai se de"  roughly means " the cat is white", more or less.

Now everytime I see a that pic, all my brain conflates it as Chairman Meow.

/I have nothing to add to the thread. My apologies.

turboke: So, how do you nominate a headline for HOTY?


You can't really. The way it works is if a headline ends up being picked as one of the HOTW (Headlines of the Week) candidates it's automatically entered into the HOTY contest.

I suggest checking next week when Unfreakable posts the HOTW to the Main page and see if this one made it. It's generally posted on Monday.

If you're a TFer, you can upvote it, but I saw this one earlier and flagged it as a candidate. It probably won't show up in the Headline of the Week roundup next week because it's a context headline, but it'll definitely be in the end-of-year roundup.

Too many humans frequently leads to not enough humanitarianism. A big advance would be if the justice system didn't charge the families of the condemned for the cost of the cap to the head...right before they strip the corpse for organs.
