During the Thargold War event in Elite Dangerous, the damaged stations make emergency supply contracts. If you complete the contract, it helps the war effort. Apparently, there is a dire need to 'get tore up' at this station. Because 1746 tons of wine is WAAAAY too much for any treatment.
I mean, seriously, is this a colony of alcoholics and wine-testers? Why do you need the output of a small winery to help your people? You're fighting aliens, not the French.
Watch me fulfil this order and they complain "Oh you didn't buy the good Altair shit- we're not taking this table wine. Buncha snobs.
AND they want cigarettes too. I mean, do they really wanna win, or what? Their ships must be so full of smoke, they can't see outside.
Is this why we're losing? The factions are too tore up and have so many tumors they can't fight anymore and the aliens are just waltzing right in?
AND they want slaves, too? You know, Empire citizens... I can just fly off any leave your fate to the Thargolds. Sure, they're the worse guy, but you don't have to be the bad guy too, mm'kay?
This pirate faction, they're the worst. They wanna get blazed and not fight. Why can't they be like the other factions and ask for...fish? Ok, soldiers & pilots gotta eat. And you'll want to fix the air, need body armor, and medicine. I'd order those things AFTER the battle, but that's just me.
"We need to maintain our stocks"---why? Are the AX pilots all dope fiends or somethan? What do our ships run on besides hydrogen-3? Cope-ium?

A Funny Commercial
Here in Korea, the youtube ads can range from weird to interesting. Today I’ve found what has to be the #1 ad of the past 5 to 10 years.
So let me explain why this is so funny. I’ll break down the first ad.
The first few seconds show kids in total glee as they torment their exhausted wasted parents. The parents are done.
That smile on that boy. You can just feel the joy on his face as he and his friends have taken over the house.
Then this Game of Thrones extra comes in, the kids shut up. They look like, “oh s***. It’s RED WEDDING TIME. Then he makes the toys hover in the air and fly into a chair. Toys fly by him as he makes the crown made of balloons.
And thus the king of…IDK… kids activities, sits atop his (Iron) throne of toys. Now I’ve seen some well-off kids with lots of toys. Could you literally make a throne of toys? Yes maybe and it would be soft, made of plushies and teddy bears.
Of course the kids love this. The parents…they’re still lying on the floor, fried from too much childcare.
The second ad came out after the app officially launched. It’s just as funny if not more so.
The ad opens up with slow-mo shots of a doll being tugged on by two kids. One kid shouts something and calls for mom.
That rabbit doll looks scared, like 'help me these kids gonna tear me to pieces’!
A few seconds in, the kids are in a tug-of-war, toys and books are all over the place. Mom looks exhausted. And they wonder I don’t have kids.
About 5 seconds in, the mom asks for the dad to intervene but he’s washing dishes. Why can’t you get up and stop this madness?
Five seconds in, big brother spinning little sister around like a merry-go-round. He gonna chuck his sister out da house if someone don’t step in.
Seven seconds in, Dad takes off his gloves. S*** bout to get realllll. He better hurry because if he don’t it’s gonna be murder scene up in here. Look in the right side. That boy’s got something large, like a giant paint bucket and he slamming it down on his sister. This house has gone Capitol Riot up in here! Big brother’s bout to end his sister. “You done touched my plushie for the LAST time!”
Dad whips off the tablecloth and boom! Here comes the king! Them kids know better now. Them other kids in the first ad aren’t here. They got “red wedding’d” and they ain’t down for that.
Fifteen seconds in, out comes the app. The app is here. Of course if this were my mother, it’d be the belt. “You can have fun quietly, or you can have the belt. Your choice.” That was my mom’s rule.
The king holds court with his assistants. I guess it’s the people who appear in the app to guide the parents through the activities.
Twenty seconds in, you see the actual stuff on the app. Seeing the king there is…kinda creepy even though the crown looks silly. It’s supposed to be about the kids doing things, not you strumming your fingers or whatever.
At the end of the app, peace is restored to the house as the kids do the stretching activities, while being watched by the king with his hard plastic sword, sitting on his iron throne of toys. A happy ending for all.
To me anyway, this is the funniest ad since the Nissan superbowl ad in the 90s. There is so much humor potential with this ad that any decent comedian can make jokes for days. I’m tempted to send it Ozy Man Reviews just to see him make fun of it.
