What would be the effects, if one

Worse, even a "limited" nuclear war with "small" (Hiroshima-sized)
nuclear weapons between India and Pakistan would have devastating
*global* consequences. "Limited" India-Paskitan war with less bang

[Luiz Antonio] That's ok?
[Mom] Ok... Now eat your octopus gnocchi.
[Luiz Antonio] Ok mom, alright... This Octopus isn't real, right?
[Luiz Antonio] Then alright... He doesn't speak and he doesn't have a head, right?
[Mom] He doesn't have a head. These are only the chopped little legs of the octopus.
[Luiz Antonio] Huh? But... is the head in the sea?
[Mom] It is at the fish market.
[Luiz Antonio] The man chopped it...? Like this...? [his hands show chopping motion]
[Mom] Yes he did.
[Luiz Antonio] Why...?
[Mom] So we can eat it. Otherwise we'd have to swallow it all.
[Luiz Antonio] But why...?
[Mom] So we can eat it, love. Just like a cow is chopped, a chicken is chopped...
[Luiz Antonio] Ah... the chicken. No. Nobody eats chicken.
[Mom] Nobody eats chicken?
[Luiz Antonio] No... those are animals!
[Luiz Antonio] Yeah!
[Mom] So lets eat the gnocchi? Eat the potato then?
[Luiz Antonio] Errr. Just the potato and just the rice.
[Luiz Antonio] Octopus are animals...
[Luiz Antonio] All of them are animals. Fish are animals. Octopus are animals. Chicken are animals. Cows are animals. Pig are animals.
[Luiz Antonio] So! When we eat animals they die!
[Mom] Ah... yeah.
[Luiz Antonio] Why?
[Mom] So we can eat, love.
[Luiz Antonio] Why do they die? I don't like that they die. I like that they stay standing up.
[Mom] Ok. Alright. So we're not gonna eat it anymore, ok?
[Luiz Antonio] Ok! These animals... you gotta take care of them... and not eat them!
[Mom] You're right, son. So eat the potato and rice.
[Luiz Antonio] Alright... Why are you crying?
[Mom] I'm not crying... I'm just touched by you.
[Luiz Antonio] I'm doing something beautiful?
[Mom] Eat... No need to eat the octopus alright?
[Luiz Antonio] Ok!

Hashed Prod. 1 day ago
My friend is a reporter and everytime we meet he complains about his
job and recently he started thinking about quitting because he
doesn't like "spreading false information and brainwashing people
with lies" anymore. I really knew what he was talking about after
watching this hilarious video. Well done, Jonathan!
