It had its moments but yeah, S1 was infinitely times superior.
I have them all brother. Only real americans in this thread please
Me too, brother. 2016 is shaping up great so far. Soon anime will be real.
It's been a day of greatest Gawker hits
They took a sex video of him without his consent, he didn't even know the camera was there, the judges told them to take it down they said no, so Hulk sued them for 115 million and won.
Media Jews filmed Hulk cucking someone and posted it, then ignored a court order to remove it.
Hulk responded by delivering a running leg drop worth $115 million.
A bald eagle was born in D.C on the same day.
Does this mean Shitaku is done for?
Please let it be so.
One of Gawker's head honchos said days ago that $40 million would put them out of business and apparently under Florida's law they have to pay at least $50 million to apply for an appeal.
Never said it did. I'm just making the observation that he essentially became monumentally rich from committing a one-time act adultery. The sex tape is the best thing that's ever happened to him.
They have to pay up 115 million even before they can appeal. They will have to pay more in later because he isn't done suing. Their net worth is about 300 million, so there's no way they have enough liquid cash to pay for it. They're fucked.
This is a great day.
>Fuck your best friend's wife
The best friend and his wife wanted it to happen, that's why he kept goading him into it and secretly filmed him
>Commit an unholy act of betrayal
Hulk was in a really rough spot at the time, they took advantage of it. But still, cheating on your wife is still adultery.
>Be a general scumbag
>Get paid $115m
It was the obvious conclusion. Gawker ignored court orders because they thought they were above the law. And when that finally bit them in the ass, Nick Denton's lawyer had the gall to invoke the Holocaust to justify breaking the law.
>They have to pay up 115 million even before they can appeal. They will have to pay more in later because he isn't done suing. Their net worth is about 300 million, so there's no way they have enough liquid cash to pay for it. They're fucked.
THIS IS BEAUTIFUL BROTHER
Now if someone can take down sites like TheMarySue and Comics Alliance
>Jojo Part 4 anime
>Might get to go to Japan and stay with a friend from high school for a few weeks
>Graduating college in a couple months
>Father beat cancer
It's going pretty great so far
It always blows my mind how SJWs
a)Love anime despite how flat out perverse and objectifying the majority of it is
b)Always get buttmad over trivial shit that isn't even close to the most offensive thing in a show.
And this is the perfect example. It's a show full of underage girls running around half naked, ass and titties right in the viewer's face half the time. BUT GOD FORBID IT MIGHT TRIGGER SELF HARM VICTIMS!!!!!
It's like that with video games too. They claim to adore Japanese games and culture, and then cry for every Japanese game that comes out to be censored to hell.
It's fucking baffling.
>They like anime because it's popular.
Yeah, that guy is fucking retarded.
Personally, I don't really care for Trump rhetoric. I don't think he's going to win because of what happened between Roosevelt and Taft 102 years ago.
Not really. They like it because it's on the fringe of what's not exactly normal but still socially acceptable. Thus it makes them "not like other girls!!!" since they all want to seem like special snowflakes to the world.
Then they go brag about how much they love anime on tumblr and post pretty screencaps. Most of which are from shows they are completely clueless about because they never actually watch anything.
And you know what Huey Lewis and the News said...
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it went down like this
>Hungary was part of the Axis
>Denton's mother was a Hungarian Jew
>Escaped before shit started going down
>"The Holocaust happened because of restrictions on speech"
>The courts telling me to take down this sex tape is a violation of my freedom of speech
That's basically the gist of it I think. And even though Denton is Jewish he really doesn't give a fuck about other Jews.
He basically said Denton's parents were Holocaust survivors so he knew what freedom of speech and press being denied was like, equating Hogan's 4th amendment rights to being like the Nazis
Grats on dad beating cancer. That's good stuff.

Man that guy's a shitty lawyer then. No reasonable judge would take that as any reasonable statement. You would think with all the money they made gawker could afford someone competent.
>Comin' right up, pal.
>If the RNC doesn't automatically select Trump as their candidate, there will be riots.
Pretty sure you mean there'll be a chimpout if Bernie doesn't get nominated, or just drops out all together.
A couple of drunk white dudes would probably shout at some other white dudes if Turnip wasn't nominated.
Hoagn's lawyers are gonna be getting a very healthy check for this. They knew that and were way more aggressive than I think Gawker anticipated. Seriously look up the videos of them questioning Denton Daulerio (spelling?) on the stand, it's ruthless.
>tfw read it as Gay Bolg at first
2016 is going rad to me now that I think.
>renewed my votes to God
>got approved in an STEM course
>got back to my cycling and walking routines
Let me rephrase that actually.
There'll be outbursts of light violence and shouting from an ethnically mixed and culturally diverse mob if Bernie doesn't get nominated, or just drops out all together.
It was the first one and G. I'm also the guy who posted Nanoha artbooks the other day on Nanoha's birthday. Here's my haul from my trip the other week. I tried not to buy too much stuff this time.
>The age of the sjw is ending.
Nah, though he may have the primaries on the pocket, there's no way for him to win the elections.
Not only does he lack support from the Republican base, he will hardly get any Democrat vote.
The next PotUS is highly likely to be a Democrat again, thus more Political Correctness for you.
Ironically, though, one of the main things that has propelled a retard like Trump is backlash against PC (in addition to most Conservatives getting tired of the Republican Party itself), which I'm sure even moderate Liberals are already tired off. The problem is that Trump, being the half-wit he is, boarded the issue in an entirely wrong way.
Some Conservatives think the GoP is better off with the Neocons/TPers in power, considering they have an absolute majority in Congress, but that's nothing but a temporary victory, a flash in the pan. In the long run, it's those retards that will kill any credibility the GoP had left after Reagan. Conservatives should have listened to Goldwater. That guy knew his stuff.
>Finally started learning moonrunes
>Dragon Quest coming out in the west again

Are we following the same primary? You're highly overestimating Bernie's support.
I doubt this is the end, so I will wait until the dust settles for me to celebrate.
Not to mention the extra $50m if they even considering appealing, current and further legal charges notwithstanding.
How about this:
There'll be outbursts of shouting from a small but ethnically mixed and culturally diverse mob, followed by twitter posts from people who didn't even cast a vote if Bernie doesn't get nominated
I could understand Bill, but why Hillary?
Not sure really. Hilary is a slimey cunt who flipflops her opinion based on who she's talking to.
I think the urban market like her because they think she's easily manipulated. Or rather, because she's weak she'll give in to a small riot here or there.
>Walking down a crowded street with a vibrator and a eroge doesn't make you the butt of the joke
I want to be a clickbait anime reviewer. My first article will be "Why the third episode proves Erased deserves a top 5 spot on MAL'
Anybody got any tips for the titles of my future articles?
>SJWs complain about not having a wide variety of characters to identify with
>anime has character that people who were/are awkward nerdy teenagers (aka a lot of Japanese boys and pretty much everyone in America who likes anime) are able to identify with

Hopefully he'll get hit by a train, or get cancer or something.
I prefer the cancer because then there's a moment where he can go "what am I doing" and stop being a fucking moron.
Anything that fits. If you search "body pillow" on amazon you'll see plenty. The daki cover I have now is 160cm, and my last Chris daki was 150cm so this one is a tad big, but it's not a big deal. The pillow I have is down feathers, and they're soft but kind of pokey sometimes. Just so you know, pretty much any review on amazon you see for body pillows will be someone explaining how it works as a daki.
Gawker is a morally bankrupt media company, under the guise of a progressive company, but their actual agenda was all sorts of twisted and you could see their blatant bias.
If they've been destroyed by this, I'm glad this happened. Especially because they were destroyed by messing with a worldwide known icon of masculinity like the Hulkster.
>"Why the third episode proves Erased deserves a top 5 spot on MAL'
Man you suck at clickbait.
Not enough people will understand this title.
"You will never believe why Erased is so good"
>ey cuz there aint no gaming news. what you want me to write about?
>just make some shit up
>shooting happens in america
>"we need to start having a dialogue about american gun laws"
>shooting happens in liberal multikulti paradise with nogunz, and trump points this out
>"stop capitalizing on tragedy, vulture!"
Yeah you have to make the title some really ambiguous shit. Something like "We found something deeper than Evangelion and you will never guess what it is", and it's an article about Hestia's feet and how she embodies fetish shaming or some shit.
>popular currently airing anime
>judging shows incredibly early into the airtime
>making ludicrously broad statements that show I clearly lack knowledge of what I was talking about.
I thought I hit all the right buttons, but I guess I'm just not meant for mass market.
"12 Reasons Why Stardust Crusaders is the Best JoJo Ark"
"How FLCL Taught Me to Grow Up"
"Akira Who? Sword Art Online's First Movie Trailer is Out and It Looks Awesome"

Those should get people riled up
>Koukaku no Pandora
Who? Isn't that a gook name
I can't even pronounce this shit let alone force myself to care
This is the thought process of a normalshit. You have to treat them as stupid because they are stupid and they expect to be treated as if they are stupid.
Treat them as independent intelligent beings and they move on to mush their brain on something else.
>not the one that says "Cuckhold Media"
See, that involves some sort of background knowledge in anime, even if it is basic as fuck. You need something more along the lines of
>Pandora in the Crimson Shell proves that Japan will never stop shamelessly exploiting the LGBT community
And then somewhere in the article bring up Ghost in the Shell like you're some sort of super sleuth for figuring out they're related before using it to further complain about Japan making light of lesbians and how the Major is "just a man with boobs".
>you were alive to see Gawker, Jezebel and Kotaku die
Being a scumbag in private doesn't mean companies are allowed to be scumbags 24/7. Clickbait tabloids are the cancer of the internet, so it's high time they started feeling the consequences.
They're only celebrating too early, because it's still possible the judgement will be overturned in appeal.
Otherwise the central entity would be exceptionally fucked into the Earth, even though properties like gizmodo would be bought up and live on.
this. the sites dying doesn't mean the writers won't all get jobs at other similar sites. Hell, they'll probably start a new one that does the same exact thing. They're profitable, and this is a bizarre anamoly that's fucking them up. There's no lesson to be learned for Gawker here.
Not that I want to defend Kotaku, but I know where this person is coming from.
If someone has never gone through with the shit that Tomoko has, never felt the crushing loneliness shit did, and most importantly never learned to laugh at themselves at least a little, then the anime/manga does come across as cruel and mean-spirited.
But in actuality it's not meant to be that.
They don't have to pay anything if the judgement is overturned. Or they might set aside the amount and lower it. Or there might be another trial.
There is the matter of Gawker having to provide a percentage of the award in escrow, but that can be waved by the court.
At the very least Gawker's aiming to attack procedural decisions by the judge.
No they like her because her husband was Bill Clinton, and the man knew how to charm people and get on their good side. Even though he was opposed politically at all times by the other side, no one really disliked him on a personal level.
No, Gawker is fucked. They are paying 115 million or they are going bankrupt. That is the situation they are in.
115 is too much for gawker media. If they survive paying 115 million, they then get a chance to appeal not paying even more
If a legal precedent like this happens, then there no longer is too much money in it. Suddenly corporations know that there's a limit to this clickbait bullshit, and they can't go that far with it again.
Some of them are scared off by this, and others even out a bit and become slightly less fucked up.
In order to test the system and get people to straighten out, you need someone to be the fall guy in order to set an example for the others. Gawker dying is the example for the others that they need to fly right again.
Its not a perfect system, but as long as there's occasional repercussions, then people do mostly stay in line. You can't think that the 1st amendment gives you the right to do literally anything if you call yourself a news publication, although there are also many ways it shouldn't be infringed.
It can't be this level of shitposting however, and this lawsuit will give some definition to the other clickbait sites out there.
An entire point with the manga is that Tomoko is a shitty person that deserves basically everything that comes her way, but that's also why we identify with her.
She's warped from the start due to too much internet, a spoiled fruit that can't fit in with the others despite still occasionally wanting to fit in with the others and realizing that its fucked that she can't do it, but that's also the path she chose.
Everything is the result of her own actions, the thing fucking up Tomoko's life is Tomoko. The thing fucking up anon's life is anon as well. Maybe you got attracted to the wrong things from early on in childhood as it became a shell for you to connect with others online, as you forgot how to connect to others offline, but this is our choice as well.
115 is roughly 3-4 times their annual revenue. You can look that up if you don't believe me.
Even if they survive and liquidate assets to do so, investment will dry up because gawker is now money poison. It's a dead property which no-one will invest in.
That's revenue. Profit is substantially less, roughly 7-12 million. Which is fucking huge for a business, but it means that a gawker is no longer a safe investment, but one that can have a decade of profits wiped away because they were being dump.
Watamote was pretty painful at times to watch, I guess it struck too much of a chord with me.
That being said, the manga was somehow less painful to read. Maybe it was because I didn't have to hear her tortured autism voice all the time.
Yeah, the only mean spirited thing it does is hold up a mirror which maybe has a reflection for some people. For others, it's just about seeing what stupid shit Tomoko does next.
>Hulk Hogan killed not only a Jewish, liberal media giant but also the bullshit clickbait trend too
SMASH 'EM, HULKSTER
Sting falls in love with Seth Rollins.
Unable to confess, he is gifted by a deus ex machina with the wrestler's phone number. Never minding the strange area code, he immediately calls him, and is overjoyed to find out that he has a crush on him as well.
But, the next day, when he recounts the previous day's confessions to Seth, he only looks at him with a perplexed expression. After some investigation, he finds out that the WWE Superstar he called is not the same WWE Superstar he fell in love with. In fact, he doesn't exist in this universe at all. He is the Architect's alternate universe counterpart, who has fallen in love with Stinger's own AU self, who too is blissfully unaware of his crush.
Hijinks ensue as the two wrestlers strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip the other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves. While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of LOVE.
>tfw Hulk Hogan is one of the heroes who will keep us from veering into the nightmarish path of a meme show
They're obligated to pay up $50 million plus change just to appeal. That's literally 4 years worth of profit for them. Their annual revenue is $47 million and they spend most of it
They'll need an investment bailout or a firesale to keep going.
Congrats on the win, Hulkster.
Why can't /v/ermin keep their JOURNALISM shit on their own board?
The problem is, the Tea Partiers and NeoCons have sucked down the idea that they need to get their way, their whole way and nothing but their way or they'll burn the mother fucker down.
It's sad that they've allowed the voices of idiots on the extreme to convince them that compromise is a loss and that working with the other party is tantamount to treason.
It's that sort of rhetoric that has ground any progress at getting shit done to a halt and alienates moderates.
Trump is riding the wave of frustration at the establishment who has just been accepting of the idiocy. But he's approached it by embracing the extreme right position and unashamedly so.
On the other side, Sanders has captured that same resentment at the Washington establishment, just coming at it from the far left.
Don't they have some hella strict rules?
Absolute freedom would probably be something along the likes of being a Somali pirate, or a nomad wandering the empty undeveloped land of the far east.
OOOOOOH YEEEEEAH BROTHER
Anime and video games saved thanks to Hulkamania running wild on these fucks at Gawker. I had drinks tonight just to celebrate and heard other people across the counter doing the same surprisingly. 2016 is off to a pretty good start.
>Not only does he lack support from the Republican base
He's winning primaries and earning more endorsements as time goes on. This same shit happened with Reagan where the GOPe stamped their feet and screamed until the convention then pulled a 180.
>he will hardly get any Democrat vote.
But he's actually doing very well in northern states and is looking to steal a huge amount of the DNC vote because he's not full-retard on gays, abortion, or trade deals like the usual RNC crone.
>Ironically, though, one of the main things that has propelled a retard like Trump
Nevermind. you're one of those "trump's dumb xd" guys. Not that I mind Trump being underestimated, it makes victories all the sweeter.
Ok now I know you're full of shit.
I just dont want people who leave terrorists in the woods for months without doing anything and have monthly school shooting, schools which have turned to prison due to fear of shootings to tell us how to handle guns.

How is Gawker getting sued even relevant to /a/.
What the fuck mods.
>turns a couple million into several billion
>4 of his companies filed bankruptcies, out of the 300+ he owns
>certified IQ of 150+, so yes he's a genius
I'd rather not go further (because this is /a/, not /pol/), but I really don't see why anti-Trump people try to make the "he's bad at business" argument.
>4 businesses declare chapter 11
>out of hundreds
Full retard. Anyone else with his credentials and they'd be shoving their superiority and education down the other side's throats. You fell for the retard mask. The man is way smarter than you realize. It's no coincidence that he's outmaneuvered the entire GOP and tricked the entire liberal media into covering every second of him.
>made millions into billions
>People claim 4 businesses(out of 100+) went bankrupt
>Don't realize that it was the same business renamed, so technically just one business
>Still made a profit off of it
Need I say more?
Now now m8s, this thread is admittedly off-topic as is. Let's not turn this into a /pol/ thread in its entirety. Gawker's death should be a time of celebration for all.
But I want to play the new Digimon World game (among others) instead.
I'm wearing it right now and it's amazing. I also found a King of Hearts shirt, but they only had nipponese size M, which simply does not fit anyone with more muscle mass than a Japanese school girl.
>inherited his dad's company
>never did anything but real estate like his dad
Anything that was successful at any rate. Remember Trump steaks?
If you want someone really successful who didn't get a head start in life, look at Soros or Buffet.
Before this become a /pol/ shitfest and gets deleted, he doesn't have any of his own money in shit like Trump Steaks and Trump Water. He merely sold the rights to use his name and put it on the label.
>never did anything but real estate like his dad
Well the Apprentice was rather successful, but that might invalidate your argument so I can understand why you wouldn't list it. His campaign has been doing pretty well too :^)
Hell, he even made money during the Atlanta casino bullshit (pic related). You keep going on about track records and all I'm seeing is a winner.
I get the feeling you're one of those "True™ Conservative" shitters. Berniebots and Hillary's dogs tend to go straight for the race-card, but I've found Ted's faithful are a bit more cunning in their attacks.
Trump can't even prove he's worth billions. According to his most recent tax return, he only made 500k last year.
Pretty pathetic for a "billionaire."
Also, he values his name alone at 3 billion.
Not the assets that have his name on them, but just his name.
Why bother? The media projects the image of racism onto Trump and this attracts neonazi idiots to him like flies, which people see and substitute for whatever Trump's real views are.
Trump winning the Republican nomination is a guaranteed victory for Hillary. It's the greatest gift to the left since Sarah Palin.
Good times, really. Now find your way back to your sewer, basement man.
for me it wa more of not being able to stop the horrible train wreck that I could see was about to happen from a mile away. Seeing it a couple time spread out over time would of been fine, but its a constant stream of that shit happening that made me unable to get past a couple episodes. Like you though, reading the manga seems to be fine.
Trump actually stated in person that he feels his net worth changes depending on his very mood at the very moment. This man feels that his brand isn't defined in value by market forces, but rather of his own volition and only that alone.
If I remember right he sold the businesses afterwards.
I don't know how the Trump brand is still a thing. Anything but real estate is terrible. >>138816686
Don't know how much money that made.
>he even made money during the Atlanta fiasco
You aren't reading it right. You can't make money from chapter 11. Trump wasn't much affected by the last three filings but if I remember right he had to give up shares of the casino each time. Even if it did start making money he couldn't have gotten much of it.
>I'm a true conservative
I'm not even American. I'm rather hoping Trump wins, my American stocks will get a good kick from his policies.
Your "net worth" is the sum value of all the things you own.
So most billionaires don't have a billion dollars in the bank, they just own things, like stocks, bonds, mutual funds and other assets. The property you own counts as an asset towards your net worth, which is where Trump claims most of his value.
Of course, he can overstate the value of his property, which leads him to declare himself worth over 10 billion dollars. But he has no actual paper trail or solid backing for it. Just his gut feeling for what he thinks his properties and his name should be worth. Like >>138816824 said.
The most generous third-party estimates I've seen set him between 1.5 and 2.5 billion.
With some coming in at a mere 150 million.
Which is less than what he inherited from his father. (Technically inherited $30 million, but due to inflation from the time of inheritance, it would be worth 200 million today.)
Ok? Your post is a good example of the democrat's autism I was talking about though.
>Don't know how much money that made.
Pretty sure he came out of that one satisfied.
>Even if it did start making money he couldn't have gotten much of it.
Fair enough, but coming out with money in a situation you were expected to lose a fair amount is a great deal to me.
I suppose tariffs would make a lot of things worse, but I'm banking Congress won't pass it. Tax cuts ought to pass straight through with a Republican majority and president.
>pretty sure he came out of that one satisfied
He's a businessman, a dollar net profit is on the whole satisfactory.
>coming outing a situation where you're expected to lose money is a great deal
Why? He didn't lose money because the rules allowed him not too. I'm just a small trader but I'm enough into the whole investing things to know rules are just rules. The guy at the top makes it so the economy runs better and the guy at the bottom uses the rules to make as much money as he can. Chapter 11 is a softer bankruptcy created so businesses could still employ people when businesses tanked. Inadvertently it allowed Trump to get off much lighter than in chapter 9. That and a good bankruptcy team.

I don't know how to feel.
I didn't care much for gawker, but I kind of liked Kotaku. Well.
THIS IS THE AVERAGE GAWKER PERSON
READS JEZEBEL AND KOTAKU LIKE THEIR BIBLE
I think I didn't make it clear.
I didn't care a single at all for gawker. I didn't even know they were a website until a few years.
But in High school, I used to read Kotaku and got some good things from it.
I'm not an SJW, or anything like that. I don't read kotaku anymore. More like IGN and Gameinformer.
>Inb4 some insult for not going to the website of choice
It's actually his friend who betrayed Hulk. Hulk was at a low point in his marriage and was lonely. Bubba (his friend) convinced him to sleep with his wife. He was even in the room before they had sex and left so they could do it.
Also, he was the one who filmed it.

>When the writer she was attacking responds by saying he had written a piece where he also believed the story to be true, but though it was prudent to report on the stories cropping up about other people picking apart the story, she vehemently attacked him in her comments section, with some real fucking nasty language, and used her fans to dogpile him
>When it turns out the entire story was completely false and those other writers were correct, she drops a one line apology embedded in another story and then immediately deflects away from herself by saying it was all another writer's fault because she didn't fact-check correctly and that her fucking up caused Merlan herself to be a giant nasty bitch
>When someone asks in the comments of that story if she'd apologized to the other writers, she didn't respond and instead her fans all dogpiled on the person saying SHE ALREADY APOLOGIZED AT THIS OTHER PAGE, OKAY!?!? WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU WANT HER TO DO?
Everyone involved with Gawker is scum.
I cant imagine that trial going any worse for Gawker than it did.
WHAT THE FUCK WERE THOSE LAWYERS THINKING?
