Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker... WTF?

    That makes sense, I would also say that there is no overarching plan for star wars. A lot of Hollywood people have turned up and gone "I know how to make movies!" and produced a bunch of unconnected movies focused around stuff that looks cool with bare minimum worldbuilding, and it shows.

    Oh The trick to star wars is "there is no hype" watch the movies expecting some SyFy channel original movie and they're pretty good!

    Concur on liking the Mandalorian. I feel like there needs to be more fresh/unique stories on Star Wars aimed at an older audience.

I was supposed to get an early review copy of a Kurzweil book back in January, then the book was delayed, several month, and as the passed and no book came I figured it would come when it comes... well I found it was released for sale on amazon a few months back, and when I contacted the publisher they said my copy had been sent in may, I've never recieved the book, and so now find myself questioning wether it would be worth ordering the book from amazon and reading it now that it's n...

Holy crap I just finished watching the San Junipero episode of Black Mirror (s3 ep4) it's one of the best science fiction tv programs I've ever seen, and I want to watch it immediately again but I don't know if I'm strong enough to experience that again.

    This was the episode that did best with the awards and critics and is one of the few with a much more positive ending. All my favourite Black Mirror episodes had incredibly dark endings, maybe this says something about me though.

My Half-orc Arcane Trickster commisioned a puppet for her mage hand, and summoned a fey familiar tonight. and My non-verbal half drow Barbarian raised by gnolls just reached a level where they can take cleric spell adept and summon the voices of his dead gnoll cackle and twin sister (the pack leader) to assist in battle.

So the EU wants facebook to remove any post that any EU member state wants removed? Why is the EU trying to censor the internet for the rest of the world?

    it wasn't a disagree kind of thing. I was unable to get google to return a usable search result for names for a specific type of puzzle. asking in a community talking about all kinds of puzzles besides what I was talking about. No attempts to clarify seems to have convinced them that they were not right in asserting their unrelated puzzle were the answer to my trying to find a name for a different kind of puzzle.

damn, this is looking like a year that's gonna take a notch out of our long time youtuber heroes. The King of Random, and Rob from Threadbangers just barely survived his brush with the reaper. I wondering if this is the start of a rough years end.

    Screw Airbnb for more reasons than one. Couchsurf/motels/camping are king. Being involved in radical leftist politics will generally give you a couch almost anywhere too.

    tried couchsurfing.com , literally everyon in the LA area seems to be traveling themselves. It was a complete no go. and motels in LA area... 100-300 a night. that's morethan the cost of the flight and convention together for the whole trip.

    It seems like it makes sense, but why are these people trying to build an army of children they have no time to look after? I mean 27 only makes sense if you really really love children!

    Honorable cause, questionable feasibility. It's something you hope for will happen, although the cynic in me is rolling his eyes and whispering to the person beside him, "Another rich man here to 'save' us."

    I think we should be mobilizing end mass with technology we have today to save the world now instead of hoping that fantastical ideas are feasable and will work. They might work, but we can't bet our lives on a might. Also screw status and celebrity virtue signalling. If he cared he'd strip him self of almost all wealth, disavow his peers and advocate real substantive change instead of this posturing he's doing.

    He is joined by DiCaprio, Ruffalo, and Matt Damon. I don't see any specifics yet. It's a good gesture, but what makes them think they will succeed where other efforts have failed (or not yet succeeded)?
