Craft Time: Make A Thanksgiving Day Chocobo Hat

It’s 4pm on Thanksgiving Day. You’re probably stuffed with turkey right now, or in the process of stuffing yourself with turkey, or still waiting to stuff yourself with turkey. (If you ate ham, get the hell out of here.) You know what that means? It’s time to make hats! Making turkey hats is an old Thanksgiving tradition. It’s not hard to see why; turkey hats combine two of our favorite things: food and fashion. Hats also make your head look bigger, which will convince people that your brain is huge. People who wear hats are often the life of the party. Need proof? Check out this picture of Spock. Boy what a boring guy. Now, what if we throw a hat on him? Instant party animal! You too can be this guy. But instead of making the traditional Turkey hat for Thanksgiving, why not make a hat using gaming’s first bird: the Chocobo. Read on to find out how. Making Chocobo hats is a fun family affair. It’s also practical. If that annual post-meal brawl breaks out, you’ll already be armed with scissors. Here’s what you’ll need to get started: Construction paper (all colors) Scissors Glue (edible) The unspoken disgust of your older cousins Kenny Loggin’s Top Gun Soundtrack Begin by cutting a piece of yellow paper into a large circle (don’t worry it can’t feel anything.) This is what a circle looks like: Next, cut out a beak and some eyes. Here is what you’re aiming for: If your uncle begins screaming about how his ex-wife wrecked his boat or your nephews start a backyard wrestling match in the living room, crank up Kenny Loggin’s "Danger Zone" and shut out the sound of smashing dishes. Next: putting it all together. Families can be hard. Is your mom screaming at you to take out the garbage? Is your Dad yelling at you, because he doesn’t want you to cut off all the cat’s hair? Is some old man complaining that you broke into his house and stole his war bonds? Ignore them. They don’t understand you. You’re an artist. You need those war bonds to make your Chocobo hat. It’s time to put the whole thing together. Glue your beak and eye to your circle and then affix the whole Chocobo head to another piece of paper (or war bond) and wrap it around your head. Feel free to add a few little extra details to your hat. Really make it your own. Add some extra tuffs off hair or a ruffled brow. If your Chocobo is filled with friendship and magic, add some glitter. If you’ve followed our instructions carefully, you should end up with something like this: *Results may vary There you have it. You are now free to experience the true joys of Thanksgiving. Throw away the unused scraps of paper (ignore their cries for mercy; they weren’t good enough to make the cut.) Now, go have some pie and hug your grandma – not only will she be freaked out by your new hat, she’ll won’t know what to make of this random affection. And remember, if you get bored later, you can always make Chocobo hats for your pets.

    Russia is using online disinformation to trash rival COVID-19 vaccines

    Russia’s internet disinformation efforts extend well beyond election interference. STATE DEPT. officials speaking with the Wall Street Journal say Russia is owning a disinformation campaign using at the very least four online publications and a bunch of social media marketing accounts to shake confidence in COVID-19 vaccines competing with Sputnik-V. The outlets New Eastern Outlook , News Front , Oriental Review and Rebel Inside all cast unfounded doubts on vaccines like Pfizer’s, falsely calling mRNA delivery a “radical experimental technology” that has been dangerous and less effective.

    All sites are “directly” linked with Russian agencies just like the FSB security service and SVR foreign intelligence, in accordance with one US official. Social accounts associated with those publications have already been pulled mostly, although some of these non-English accounts were active as as early 2021 recently. 

    The constant state Department acknowledged the conclusions in a statement to the WSJ , but didn’t supply direct evidence linking the websites to the Russian government. This is a “joint interagency” discovering that Russia bore “direct responsibility” for spreading falsehoods, the representative said. Russia denied the allegations in its response, but it addittionally includes a long history of denying misinformation and hacking campaigns despite strong evidence.

    Russian leaders have a solid incentive to attack rival vaccines. The united states is hoping to improve sales of Sputnik-V clearly, but it is also thought to be utilizing the vaccine to exert influence worldwide. A national country ready to buy these shots may be receptive to other Russian deals, for instance.

    There’s very little the US can perform to turn off the websites themselves when they’re foreign-owned and operated. Nonetheless, the findings could easily increase strain on the US government and internet sites to crack down on vaccine misinformation. Similar to conspiracy theories surrounding COVID-19, the bogus vaccine claims could possibly be dangerous genuinely, leading visitors to skip life-saving shots or attack agencies distributing and promoting vaccinations even.
