    There would be no point at all to pay that much for a Dominican citizenship. It gives you no advantage for anything. Anybody from the US can go to DR and buy land, buy property and/or build property.

    I know a guy who has been to N. Korea several times, apparently the guards where super chill with him. Being Swedish probably helps.

    Sadly, i disagree with all of you RT, that streamer ditched a panel! If she didn't do that i would sort of agree but ditching something that has been planned for a long time and not telling a single person is a problem. She did cause a panic because as someone who was invited there and would be expected to go to E3, it seems really sketchy that she would go play "poker".

    you are allowed to visit Tibet and go to China. The problem is if you support Free Tibet (publicly) you can't go to China.

    Just wanted to point out that North Korea claims he was stealing a sign, the "proof" of it is an insanely grainy big foot video. Nor does that excuse a 15 year prison / work camp sentence. It's far more likely they found out he was American and detained him just as a political prisoner and came up with that stealing story.

    Burnie's misunderstanding of Puerto Rico's relationship with the U.S. was frustrating to me. Allow me to explain:

    1) The most recent statehood referendum had a 22% voter turnout, like Gus said, and 97% of those who voted were for statehood. This is mostly because many others saw the vote as rigged because the current governor is pro-statehood.

    2) Puerto Rico is currently an unincorporated U.S. territory. I have nothing against Burnie, but his cluelessness in thinking the Republican-controlled Congress would ever accept Puerto Rico as a state is ridiculous, because as a territory it strongly votes Democrat. "When are you just getting new territories" he says, but Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory, and in its current position Congress technically has complete control of it.


    Burnie dismisses it as a straightforward issue, it's not. Sorry if this seems bitchy or anything, but it's frustrating when he talks about such serious issues when he isn't entirely informed. Gus seems to know more about what he's talking about.

    It's crazy how someone can't be off the internet even a day without everyone freaking out. Kind of sad how that's the norm.

    I live in South Korea as a ESL teacher and I did the the typical DMZ tour that Gus probably did, but I've met two American guys, older and they'd been in the country for almost 10 years, who did the DMZ tour through a Chinese agency that took them through N. Korea visiting Pyongyang and another city (or factory or other site) and then saw the DMZ from the North Korean side. And they said the craziest part was how similar the tours are.


    SK tells everyone the North is starving its citizens and they have fake cities to intimidate the North and they do all this propaganda and torture of its own people who step out of line. 


    And according to these guys I know, NK told their tour that the South starves and tortures its own citizens, has fake cities, propaganda, etc. 


    Beat for beat the same spiel, but to people who know better, who have seen the other side. These guys joked it felt almost like a test to get the people in the tour to speak out and give NK reason to detain them.

      Interesting. I've heard things aren't as bad there as SK says, but you have to admit they have some shady stuff going on.

    My most interesting take away from my visit to the DMZ is that in the gift shop they sell little cute action figures of the North and South Korean border guards. They have smiling little North Korean dolls whose real life counterparts would probably slit my throat. Strange...

    If you are from the US, Japan or South Korea expect to have a hard time getting approved to visit NK. All tourists transit via China. I've met two people who have been to North Korea and both said it was a worthwhile visit. Obviously don't go there if you are not very smart as you can easily get in to trouble if you do dumb shit.


    Puerto Rico is fully part of the US and under the control of the US Senate already. PR wants to be a state because the US govt passed a law in the 90s that fucked over PRs economy and the territory is now severely bankrupt, but is legally blocked from dealing with the issue by the Senate. The Republican Senate is never going to let PR be a state because that would mean two more Democrat Senators.


    How many countries you can get visa-free access to depends on how much your country spends of foreign affairs and how many enemies it has.

    why are so many people crying about a new schedule? so they changed when videos come out so what get over it and enjoy the content shesh

      Because the change ruins their convenience of when they are watching videos. I think the previous way was inconvenient to some people but now the people who are angry about the change became inconvenienced. It's a no-win situation for RT because there will be angry about any change.


      I just going to adapt to the change and go on my day.

    The "panels" or the E3 coliseum as it was called was fairly interesting. Afrojack hosting sledgehammer was a little weird but Jack seemed right at home talking to the Far Cry 5 team.

    I don't fault the streamer for taking a day off or drinking or gambling or avoiding technology for a while. You've got to admit it's stupid to literally tell no one that you plan on disappearing and then be surprised that people are looking for you.

      Germany and Singapore are the top.

    Not sure if anyone else said this but the young guy who died after being taken prisoner by North Korea probably didn't even steal (or take down) that sign the NK government said he did. Chances are, that guy did nothing wrong and was simply taken as a political prisoner.

    Honestly, don't go to North Korea. Just don't. We get away with so much shit in America, but NK has got their shit on lockdown. Look how they treat their own citizens, what do you think they're going to do with a foreigner?

    My lunch breaks are so boring now. Everything comes out so late. I understand that they are trying to manipulate and maximize the youtube notification system, but the site was fine. I would always watch the post shows of things like Off Topic, RT Podcast, Always Open, etc. during my lunch breaks. Funhaus also dominates my lunches as their videos are all short except for their podcast. The longer than an hour videos from any of the parts of the website were saved as my bed-time relaxation or for working out or something. 


    This new schedule on the RT Site in particular is infuriating. I watch nearly everything RT does on the site. I only go to youtube for a repeat viewing of non-first content.


    With this schedule, it is just another reason to never come here. The wait is infuriating.


    I always say, if you are going to change something then you need to make sure that whatever you change will be as good or better than what you had previously.


    It is really stupid to try and cater to kids school schedules. It ruins my day and have have skipped more content since this schedule got put in place than i ever have before.


    The RT site is not Youtube and should not have changes that are meant to improve youtube applied to it as well.


    TL:DR This schedule sucks.

      Personally I always think earlier is better. You can watch it whenever you want, if things came out at 8 am est I'd watch it before work. If you know you want something for lunch you could save a video though.

    In all fairness, I think the panic was due to her not telling her friends. If one of my friends disappeared after a night of drinking without informing anyone they knew I'd be concerned too.

      Probably. But the point is, none of the angry people should've cared. It's not like they're her friends, and honestly, most of them probably weren't legitimately worried at all. It was a happy ending. So why would anyone get upset?

      It's just the internet hero complex at work; people love to feel like they're involved, that they made a difference, even if they've done absolutely nothing or something was really none of their business in the first place. Everyone wanted to rescue a girl; turns out, she wasn't even lost or in danger. The revelation was like dumping Mentos of outrage into a Diet Coke of vitriol; at that point, nothing short of "internet saves E3 kidnapping victim" or "tragedy strikes: internet star found dead" was going to stop the rage machine.

    canadas exit tax is incurred only on capital gains. IE investments. not total wealth. and only the difference between when you got them in canada and when you sell them after you leave. its not fucked up at all, its meant to keep people from undercutting our economy.

    I'm not sure why Rooster Teeth keeps changing things that are working and making them worse for people. Just like the week gap release for FIRST members to non-first on RvB/RWBYChibi and now this. When your audience is happy, just leave it alone.
