What the U.S. Gets for Defending Its Allies and Interests Abroad

By Max Fisher and Sergio Peçanha for The New York Times. January 16, 2017 [x]

President-elect Donald J. Trump has questioned the return that the United States gets for defending its allies. Here’s the current picture of what America puts in and gets out of global alliances.

Treaties with more than 30 countries help bring stability to the most economically and politically important regions for the United States.

Countries with mutual defense treaties with the United States, and trade in 2015 between the United States and major partners

More than 210,000 American military personnel are deployed overseas. Most are not in active conflict zones.

Military Kid Pidge Theory

Okay, So I’ve seen a lot of theories as to what the backgrounds of the Voltron characters is. Cuban Lance, Hawaiian Hunk, Korean Keith, and Japanese Shiro are the most popular. But what about a military kid Pidge?

-Military kids can literally be born anywhere and you would have no idea that they were from the country because they don’t show physical attributes. Pidge could have been born in Germany or China and we wouldn’t know. 

-Since her father works for the Garrison, which from what we’ve seen, it looks very government like, her dad could have moved around bases in the world. 

-Most (American) military bases keep the children within them so they can learn English and are home schooled so they can return to America for higher education. 

-Pidge most likely would have stayed in one country for the most part, but you would never know because she lived on the base. 

-Pidge and Max would have been able to actually visit the local villages and picked up some verbal conversation in other languages or be able to read some of the more important street signs. 

-Pidge would literally be able to completely hide any accents due to most people in the base being English speakers.

-Pidge could totally surprise the rest of Voltron by being from India for all we know and being able to hold a conversation and read signs in that country.

-Military Kids, military kids, you never expect them. 

(I got this idea from a friend who was a military kid that was born and raised in China, and if she didn’t tell you, you would totally believe she was born and raised in America based on her language and education)

anonymous asked:

This might be a strange question but, what kind of drugs are circulating during this time period? Could we use chems from Fallout or would you rather stick to the regular modern day type?

Not strange at all! I would want to steer clear from using specific chems from Fallout, but drugs have definitely evolved in a similar fashion. With the remarkable advances in the medical field, the desperation to outlive the planet’s decline and boost human potential, it was common to see anti-radiation kits, stamina and sensory enhancing narcotics, and even steroids utilized by the military to max out a soldier’s potential (warping the user into something of a berserker). 

I think this is a good excuse to do some more world building, so I will get together a list of some common drugs for you — medicinal and otherwise — and include the names and effects. I’ll edit this answer with the details once I’ve finished compiling. 

Thanks for the awesome question!

Edit:

  • Nega: an oblong-shaped pill that was used to equalize hysteria in mentally ill patients, particularly schizophrenics; it is often used to dull senses and neutralize emotions
  • Syneth: akin to LSD, this instigates heady delusions and euphoria with mild to moderate hallucinogenic side effects; effects are long-lasting, and most experiences are positive and create a sense of universal oneness.
  • Belfry Bats: a toxic mixture of corrosive chemicals that induces an intense and frantic high; easy to make and a favourite of raiders.
  • Madcaps: hallucinogenic mushrooms, very rare as they require moisture to grow.
  • Radiaxe: these are pretty much extinct, but they were used to curb the initial side effects of mindcook and moderate radiation poisoning.
  • The Morrigan: a dangerous toxin that, when used in small amounts, can push the user’s stamina and pain threshold to its maximum, though it is incredibly dangerous and difficult to measure.
  • Fearless: makes the user feel ten-foot-tall and bullet-proof, usually comes in a grainy, white powder that is inhaled through the nostrils.
  • Mother’s Milk: usually administered intravenously, it calms the user into a stupor and relieves severe aches and pains; highly addictive.
  • Psychout: also known as Ichor, this was used by the military to induce an unstoppable rage; users were often called berserkers. It is common among mercenaries.

George Miller: ‘The last thing I wanted to do was another Mad Max movie’
The director of action blockbuster Mad Max: Fury Road explains why his baroque post-apocalyptic dystopia isn’t quite as far-fetched as you might think
By Paul MacInnes

So where does the film’s baddie, Immortan Joe, come into it?

Immortan Joe was once Colonel Joe Moore, a military man. When the coastal cities started to fall into chaos after the events of Next Wednesday, he was able to organise these hybrid military biker gangs who, when the cities were razed, migrated like locusts into the centre of the continent. There he was able to create this new dominant hierarchy in the way that tyrants have in the past, using the architecture of power to control the major resources, especially the water.

Somehow I haven’t seen this before. George parses out his apocalypse quite a bit here and has thoughts on Furiosa as a possible future tyrant and the longer-term future of the Citadel.
