Как сказал президент Трамп: "Вам нужна великая ковфефе, а нам нужна великая Россия"

В аэропорту Болоньи на стойке регистрации МАУ (которое, кстати, в Италии называется не МАУ, а FlyOnAir) итальянская синьора спрашивала, где у нас в паспортах шенгенская виза или вид на жительство. Мне очень долго пришлось пояснять, что с Украиной уже действует безвизовый режим и визы не нужны. Тетка не понимала. (Еще раз: это еще не на паспортном контроле, это на стойке регистрации МАУ).

На паспортном контроле итальянский пограничник тоже начал что-то спрашивать по-итальянски, я ему сказала на английском, что итальянским не владею. Но ничего доказывать ему не пришлось, он сам долго о чем-то говорил с соседним пограничником, скорее всего тот ему пояснял, что с Украиной теперь безвизовый режим. Шлепнул штампы о выезде и нас выпустили.

Nominations Are Open!

Nominate

Tagset

You may nominate up to seven fandoms, with a maximum of 7 relationships per fandom.

Please only nominate & relationships (i.e. gen relationships.).

Please ignore the instructions at the top of the form regarding crossover relationships. Crossover relationships go under 'Crossover Fandom'. The instructions to nominate crossover relationships under either fandom are AO3's automated instructions, and, unfortunately, I can't find a way to remove them.

All Media Types tags are not allowed for Tolkien and Star Wars. Tolkien will be split as LotR books/LotR movies/Silmarillion/Hobbit books/Hobbit movies. Star Wars will be split as Originals/Prequels/Sequels/Legends/canon comics/canon novels/individual TV shows.

Please also avoid All Media Types tags for fandoms as much as possible. As specific or general (eg: individual movies or umbrella franchises) as you want is fine, but I'd prefer to minimise AMT tags as much as possible.

Please also note that I won't be able to approve tags very quickly until the 28th or 29th, possibly the 30th, because my home Internet is down and repairs are ongoing. I will be approving nominations on mobile as fast as possible, but disambiguation will take time. In particular, disambiguating when nominating for the following fandoms would make the process faster:
Marvel
DC
Tolkien
Star Wars
Star Trek
Stargate
George R. R. Martin
Fullmetal 
The Man From U.N.C.L.E.  (TV/movies)

Once nominations begin to be approved, if your noms have mysteriously vanished, been moved to the wrong fandom, or otherwise messed up, please let me know! Ditto for duplicates and misspellings/nonexistent characters.

A song that makes you sad. It's hard to find anything sadder than one of my friends who posted a video of a scratch orchestra playing the European anthem Ode to Joy the day after the UK voted to leave the EU. But the song most likely to make me cry, personally, is the aria Voi che sapete from Mozart's The marriage of Figaro.

Не, не в том смысле, что "ну ты попал, мужик". В привычном литературном (мало)художественном.

Шутка про капитализм, построенный по "Незнайке на Луне" пополам с газетой "Правда" уже навязла в зубах. А я вот, наблюдая за окружающей действительностью, ощущаю себя на страницах школьного учебника истории. В основном - феодальной.

Всякие договоры с республиками в начале 1990-х - пожалуйста, феодальная раздробленность.
Укрепление вертикали власти? Король получил больше ресурсов и взял к ногтю вассалов.
Фронда, опять же.

А вот в части регуляторики Интернета то, что я вижу, напоминает уже не учебники, а хрестоматию по истории средних веков, где, значит, вилланы по вечерам вспоминают прошлый золотой век, когда грабил только барон, и три шкуры, а не семь, и барщина была лёгкой, и хворост собирали незаметно для лесничих...

В общем, да здравствует просвещённый абсолютизм - наше светлое будущее!

Nearly 130 million hectares of forest—an area almost equivalent in size to South Africa—have been lost since 1990, according to a recent report by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.

A new NASA-funded study finds that lightning storms were the main driver of recent massive fire years in Alaska and northern Canada, and that these storms are likely to move farther north with climate warming, potentially altering northern landscapes.

Older farmers and those whose farms are high in debt with lower rates of return are more likely to intend to quit farming during times of water scarcity when the property market is more depressed, according to new research from the University of Adelaide.

Hate everything.
Having cashflow problems, some of which are my fault, and some of which are other people's fault, and all of which are beyond my control and therefore incredibly frustrating.
Cashflow problems meaning I am having to cancel on commitments, which I hate doing.
Politics in general is full of arseholes who keep arsing.
Work is frustrating, because I can't do the things I need to do for various stupid reasons (also beyond my control).
Have had no sleep and lots of pointless arguments with members of household, which means I am dangerously low on spoons, grumpy and frazzled.
And to top it all, my right tit is a big scabby painful mess.

Here's hoping you lot are all a bit happier...

 What do your charries regularly do about their hair / beard / clothes / shoes / general neatness of appearance?

I have recently found that this is the main visual distinction between my two Mads!faces, Hannibal and Galen.
