Maybe somebody can modify a Soviet poster? They're pretty awesome and there are quite a few that look a bit menacing.
Nothing, I just didn't think about it at the time. I will change Champ's sig to the Perma, Banistan banner soon, though.
I was browsing through old mir topics as I sometimes do, and found this. Thought it was worth reposting. Oblisk seemed to have the right idea.

Taking the fun out of life since 1955.
I still think Oblisk is cool though.
You are mistaken. I still am.
I post Here
Those are still the official cards here, fitz, and you are the poster child for incessant b ehaviour that is cardable..
Now that Chaz seems to be back (great to see btw), what's happening with new pics? Are we gonna change anything?
no. I don't think they need to be
how old are they? perhaps there should be 2 for each? maybe not. it's not a really important matter really.
The schizophrenic is the new jew.
it isn't. Carding isn't something to be proud of. we had fun with it, i kept mine simply because I do 99% of the carding here when I'm not in jail/prison/mental hospital. If the other admins want their own, so be it. the ban cards, we already have two. we used to have the same cards that pofo uses. Pofo is S-E's fat, boorish, unattractive, intolerant little sister. I didn't want that here anymore.
Is there a difference?
Jail is a place for misdemeanor offenders and people awaiting sentencing on felonies. Prison is where you do real time. Convicted felons only. Murderers and rapists and crimes against humanity and that sort all end up in prison. You cannot be sentenced to jail if you are a convicted felon.
Jail really sucks. you never see the sun.
It is a lot like federal lock down.
I never knew that.
So prison is for the real bad dudes... and jail is for people who do lesser evils, but it is actually worse because you don't see the sun? Is that right?
somewhat. The US penal system leaves a lot to be desired. it gives you a lot of time to think. That's for sure.
what other differences are there between the two? also do you do stuff like work or do you just sit around and think? if you just sit around and think, is it worth it? like, do you think about deeply philosophical stuff and reach awesome conclusions you'd never have been able to reach otherwise, or is it just a massive waste of time?
Work is in prisons. Jails do not have work programs in general.
The other main difference is the vast size and who runs them.
Counties run jails, The state runs prisons and then there are Federal Prisons.
Essentially. I wrote hundreds of pages of stuff. But I could have done that anywhere. It changes you in so many subtle ways I cannot describe. It makes you much weaker and angrier. That's a fact.
i guess federal prisons are the worst ones?
also yeah, i've heard there are private prisons in the us... are they essentially companies that get slave labour?
They are essentially old and dilapidated. They are miserable places to be. I've been in one.
Nightmarish places. Newer, Cleaner, but you have to pay to receive medical attention. Slave labor? No. Underpaid labor? Yep. They do have programs to allow money to be paid to prisoners to get paper and pens and phone privileges, etc.
Lock Down has it's advantages. You get left alone. And sometimes for days on end. but it is great for reading and writing.
