    I'm a newbie when it comes to graphics - how would people say is the best way of creating those semicircular dot pics of parliaments? Is there a template somewhere?

    Thanks

    This website will generate one for you. It's just a matter of plugging in numbers and pressing some buttons.

    And this one generates Westminster-style ones.

    I'm not a hundred percent certain this is the right thread, but this is a propaganda poster of the Mexican resistance against the invasion of the Union of Socialist Workers Council Republics (Basically an American USSR) for 1923.

    Ecoterrorist Sami bikers! Very loosely based on the last film I watched a couple weeks back, but hopefully not as sucky or illogical:

    Some puns just have to be made. It'd make a great movie if Hollywood didn't try to stick it to an unrelated franchise. TVTropes: Dolled Up Installment.

    A reformed Ottoman Empire in which the titles of Valide Sultan, Haseki Sultan, and Grand Vizier eventually result in a Swiss-style council government. Purple indicates that this office is open to either gender. The POD is that after Selim the Drunkard's murder, Ottoman senior officials formally adopt a system to disperse power and prevent further crises in the empire. In 1914 there's a republican revolution in which all offices are elected, although in practice the first gentleman is always from the high nobility and the first lady is always his wife. There is also a reform of the millet system in which any ethnic and religious community of 100 men, 100 women, and 100 children can obtain some degree of self-governance so long as they plead loyalty and agree to pay taxes (millets can be exempt from military service if they pay an extra tax to the emperor, known as jizya, so long as there are sufficient soldiers, and there are now 23 different Muslim millets alongside 6 Christian, 3 Jewish, 1 Druze, and 1 Yazidi one).

    stupid question, but has anyone ever seen a carrier conversion for the Olympic-class liners like the Titanic? Have a situation where it might come up.

    ISIS attempts a rebrand after Trump's election, reaching out to anti-American non-Muslims in Latin America as well as presenting themselves as the opposition to Trump and the defenders of the climate and non-white peoples. They issue new propaganda videos in English, Spanish, and Quechua (not pictured).

    The first intelligent, spacefaring alien encountered by humanity, whose name in his language translates literally as "Eightboy" because he was the eighth male child of his mother's brood. In the Garland Report of February 2401, which described the findings of the Terran first contact team led by Captain Rodney Garland, his name was back-translated to "Octavius".
    Dressed in a plain grey-white hazard suit, Octavius could almost pass as human. His species, the "People of the Soaring Cliffs" would be known vulgarly as "eagle-folk", but more properly as the acciptrids.

    Put that in a horror scenario, cause this thing is freaky, cool, but freaky.

    It should be icónica, not icónico. Otherwise really good, Spanish isn't often written as good by non-native speakers.
