Weekend Roundup: Bin Laden’s Porn and The PLA’s Video Games

So, it’s your Sunday roundup of the stories we didn’t get to last week.

First off, enjoy the video of China’s J-20 stealth fighter dumping fuel while flying at a relatively low altitude over populated areas. I guess the aviation authorities figure the highly flammable and toxic jet fuel will evaporate before raining down on anyone.

Oh, and then there’s bin Laden’s porn stash. Danger Room’s Spencer Ackerman may have had the best line of all when describing the dead terrorist with this sentence: “Alone in his compound, he’s beating it like it owes him cash.

And check out the Twitter hashtag for bin Laden porn. Hilarious.

Speaking of the J-20, check out these photos of its fifth test flight here.

China’s not only imitating U.S. military hardware but the PLA may also be joining the U.S. Army in making first person shooter video games. It’s debut game is called “Glorious Mission” and features the PLA versus the USA. I’m not even gonna say it.

    >>the highly flammable and toxic jet fuel

    Unfounded assumption about the fuel source ! I always thought its running on skittles.

  • Anthony

    Maybe he was just dumping his lunch…gives new meaning to its raining cats and dogs! lol

  • Brian

    If the government won’t release pics of bin Laden’s dead body, can they at least release his porn? I’m curious to know what he was watching. I’m expecting animals with strap-ons.

    They couldnt possibly make their air pollution any worse.

  • Rob

    None of the articles about the porn discuss the possibility it could be used for purpose of spreading virus’s over net or even to encrypt messages to operatives elsewhere.

    It cannot be proven to be his & could be property of a wife or someone else in house.

    This compound, seemingly built to prevent quick ground access , to me also looks to be a place they took hostages.

    Also no mention of any underground passages at this place either.

    Also the possibility of people buried on the property or burned in the ‘trash pit’ they found.

    In scanning the area on Google map, I’ve yet to find a another compound like this either… or any with satellites unless a business/government structure.

      “None of the articles about the **** discuss the possibility it could be used for purpose of spreading virus’s over net or even to encrypt messages to operatives elsewhere.”

      No doubt this is the excuse hundreds of CIA analysts will use so they can watch **** on “Company” time.

      Now that I remember the CIA finds the terrorists in Patriot Games by spotting a pair of boobies on a satellite photo. Which ever analyst finds the location of Al Qaeda secret bio weapon’s lab hidden in he pixels of Sunny Lane’s butt crack deserves a medal.

        It seems “Rob” has spent way to much time in the basement , carefully perusing google Maps studying Abbottabad.

  • Sam

    Let’s hope the bin Laden porn didn’t involve camels.

    • Brian

      Let’s hope it is camels. Gay camels. Underage gay camels.

    Bin laden had 24 kids the CIA Needs to identify and track his family especially his eldest son who’s been groomed or programmed to become his successor. The problem is an ideology cannot be defeated but harmony or structure over destruction seems to always prevail. Freedom liberty and justice will always prevail they are in fact synonymous with harmony and structure. Terrorist ideology is a cancer we as humans are nothing more than globs of bacteria which can be programmed from birth. The principals we teach when were first born can prevent future acts of terrorism. It’s not 100 percent because it’s in human nature when a person can’t express or becomes frustrated to sometimes act out violently. There should be a long term strategy to promote a structure in human society that minimizes be it education, poverty or what factors could or would promote this kind of behavior. TV can also be an excellent tool
    That we can utilize to program us as a human race but sadly we do not use it effectively.

    • Supreme Leader

      I agree, lets program the worlds population to think and act in ways that the programmers find beneficial. What could possibly go wrong with that?

    Lolz China is making an “America’s Army” knock off, If I had to guess to shows China dominating the US Army but no mention of the Marines, becuase of their encounter with them in Korea… Operation Flashpoint Dragon Rising had China verses the Marines, when the Marines were getting pwn’d they cursed, when the Chinese were getting pwn’d they cryed like little ******* lolz…

    Does America’s Army even have any Maps where the OPFOR are Chinese? I only remember terrorists from the Middle East, Africa and some semblance of a Russian Army

    • Thunder350

      In Americas Army, no matter what team your on, your team is disguised as American soldiers, the enemy team is always disguised as terrorist. Because having 1,001 games where you can shoot virtual soldiers, is too much! (Political correctness at its best).

  • Jonathan

    Give the chinese a few more years and they’ll run out of women, the basic institution of society (family) will fail and soon enough their entire country will along with it.

    • ben

      1. they repealed the one child law that causes their gender demographics decades ago.
      2. having twice as many men as women still produces 2/3 the number of child producing couples as a 50/50 mix.
      3. china’s culture focuses much more on the extended family structure, which is significantly MORE stable than the nuclear family structure prevalent in current western culture. The more isolated western nuclear family group trades stability for adaptability. Having a strict hierarchy where great-grampa and his drinking buddies arrange marriages between their kids pretty much makes your point completely moot.

      • Matt

        Ben, they did NOT repeal the one child policy. Where did you hear that? They are considering it a repeal, but structurally repeal will be very hard to implement - many officials have come to expect cash from fines on those abusing the law, and are dead set against repeal. Also, most signs point to the fact that it will have little to no effect on population aging and the gender gap if repealed. Most Chinese polled will continue to have a single child, and there is a very large cultural preference for boys.

        Learn a thing or two about China.

        • Jonathan

          ^this

        • ben

          I must have picked it up from someone talking about how they made it less strict. On further research it does appear that the law is still in force, but is now on the provincial level, and that the provinces all have different versions, with exemptions for various being much more common, and rich people just paying the fines.

          Either way, this does nothing to change the fact that having a 2:1 ratio of men to women still produces 2/3 the child bearing couples that a 1:1 ratio produces, and the fact that chinese culture has much more stable if inflexible family structures that are more than capable of coping with the reduced availability of women.

          China is in no danger of collapsing due to a loss of “family values”. Especially when their culture has already proven stable enough to survive the cultural revolution.

          • http://stalevariety@blogspot.com Matt

            I’m sorry Ben, but a vague comment like “chinese culture has….structures that are more than capable of coping with the reduced availability of women ” is a highly conjectural and ill-supported statement. Your math is correct, but your conclusions are ill conceived.

            The lopsided *** ratio is but one symptom of a larger demographic issue, and whether you like it or not, 15 million man who cannot find a wife is going to have an effect that is impossible to predict, because human society has never seen a ratio so skewed before.

            What the 2:1 ratio really means is that China’s population will undergo rapid and and unrivaled aging - yes, it will still produce many child bearing couples, but these couples will be saddled with having to take care of an enormous amount of retirees, as well as their own children - the next 40 years, every 10 adults of working age will be supporting 7 who are not (i.e. retired, or a child) Because china’s pension system is underdeveloped, and due to the low level of national income, this is going to put a huge strain on national resources. Whether or not the system will collapse is impossible to predict, but Chinese society will feel the weight of an aging population.

            One aspect of this includes a decreasing supply of workers - indeed, China’s working age population will start to decline this year. All of this will conrtibute to instability. How the chinese deal with it on the other hand is something entirely different altogether

    Morbidly curious….does anyone know what platform “glorious mission” is programmed for?

    I’m not aware of any indigenous consoles or operating systems, so presumably it’s either PC, X-Box 360 or Playstation 2. Looks quite pretty in a “can’t understand the game HUD but it looks sensibly laid out” fashion.

    • Bill

      PC - It looks as though it serves more as a public “We Want You!” message than a tactical shooter. IMO, these games are more of a recruitment tool than a training tool; until they model human bodily and timing reactions - People don’t strafe as a fast as they run.

  • Tim

    “Glorious Mission” against whom? The last time they had a real mission was in 1979 when the might PLA was whipped by a bunch of Vietnamese militia while the NVA was still in Cambodia looking for Pol Pot. I wonder if they will include THAT mission.

  • Andrew

    Can we just send our our AirForce to China and Destroy china Already.

    • joe

      Depends. How much do you like having a functional world economy?

  • xpoqx

    “Glorious Mission” is in fact the PLA versus America’s Army, there is a screen shot of a AH-64 Apache being shot down. I belive it is for PC, and follows ideas similer to the Army’s “America’s Army” game for PC…
