Anime News Network asked Gio & Yasha to write an article about Utena, Empty Movement, and they totally called us superfans, omg. Think of it as a belated Valentine's to Utena, its fandom, and the excellent friendships we've made along the way. 20 Years of Utena Fandom with the Ultimate Superfans!!!

Saparmurat Niyazov is dead: the notable deaths thread.

Vanity thread, Woo woo.  Chu...

He banned newscasters from wearing makeup because he couldn't tell them apart. I'm sad that all the true megalomaniacs are getting up there in the years. They made the news more interesting.

Re: Saparmurat Niyazov is dead: the notable deaths thread.

My favorite dictator died a long time ago, but it's always a shame to lose one. I think I'd make a good popular one. At least until my assassination.

WOW! According to that guy, I'm still in Adolescence on the cusp of Youth!

That's the greatest news story I've read in ages! "Story", it almost seems like it was one, with such extremes!

It's the springtime of my youth as well... but I have hayfever... T___TU

My favorite dictator is Kim Jong Il.  He's so wiierrrrd like when he said that all Koreans will have a standardized hair length because 'extra hair uses up more energy, and that decreases productivity.'  In all truth, we know he was just trying to avoid the mullet.  And he also looks real funneee.  Huh huh huh.

I wouldn't worry about that too much, I'm sure that we will have plenty of future dictators and sooner or later the biggest baddest one will come out of the US, I'm sure of it.school-freud

Well I don't actually want one soon... less in my country... but I am kind of worried because it seems we like revolutions starting on the 10th year in every century emot-gonk(our independence war started in 1810, we had a revolution in 1910 and many people seem willing enough to make another in the 2010)

You mean with the hundreds of thousands of video cameras and all the political double talk that we don't more or less live like in 1984 anyway?

Re: Saparmurat Niyazov is dead: the notable deaths thread.

That attitude isn't all that rare, either. If there is one thing Stalin did right, it was to get people love him beyond logic and reason. A fair deal of people who suffered under his rule were convinced that he'd help them, at once, if he just knew of their condition.
Apparently he could have actually been a fairly laid-back kind of person, if he had received proper medication for his mental condition. Unfortunately he was too paranoid to let any doctor do a proper diagnosis on him. That paranoia lead to all those millions dead, as he imagined that everyone was out there to get him.

Nope, just plain old faith in authority mixed with a great deal of character worship. Rather common, actually, I'd say, in all times and places but under Stalin it reached its logical ends rather unpleasantly.

I heard people were crushed to death on his funeral procession, because they wanted to touch  him so much that they didn't care who they step on at getting near him emot-gonk

Have they executed him yet? I heard that they had to execute him before dawn, because tomorrow is a religious holiday.

As for Saparmurat Niyazov, he sounds like me whenever I'm playing The Sims. I think that from now on, I'll rename Saturdays, Shioriday. It shall be a holiday, and all Sims must rewatch episode 17 on that day. People who don't rewatch it will be crushed with satellites.

Re: Saparmurat Niyazov is dead: the notable deaths thread.

Most of this information is foisted on me by an IRC deadpool, so my knowledge of the dead won't be running out any time soon. emot-keke

EDIT: and yeah. He was hanged a few hours ago. I was kind of shocked by how quickly it happened, too. When I told my grandmother her first instinct was to ask if he killed himself in his cell.

I bet she had money riding on that means of death.

Re: Saparmurat Niyazov is dead: the notable deaths thread.

Yeah it was pretty sudden. If they weren't going to draw things out they should have had it on Christmas like Colbert suggested.

Overheard at work today: "They hung that guy who killed all those Iraqis, I don't know his name."

Sure Niyazov's dead, but more importantly, did you hear what he died of?
