I guess now it’s pinned. I was hoping that we would just keep it at the top of the page through constant spamming.

Now the only thing that bugs me is the ‘an’ in the title isn’t capitalized.

Looks like it is now. However, there’s still the problem of all the index threads following a different naming convention.

Here’s a hypothetical opening to a Tarantino/Japanese inspired 3-in-1:

I stole the dialogue from The Blackened Mantle.

Wow. I really like that. It actually took me a moment to figure out why the scene felt so different. Removing/changing the music really worked wonders for making the scene more emotional. I assume you added all the sound effects and foley yourself? It sounds great, either way.

It’s a good first step, but I’m not sure if it’ll have any real effect.

California lawmakers propose legislation restricting when police can shoot

California state lawmakers are proposing legislation that would impose new restrictions on when a law enforcement officer can open fire.

Under the legislation, officers would only be allowed to open fire if “there were no other reasonable alternatives to the use of deadly force." The Associated Press first reported the legislation, which is supported by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and other groups.

The proposal comes after the fatal police shooting of Stephon Clark, an unarmed black man in Sacramento.

Clark was shot by Sacramento police last month while unarmed in the backyard of his grandmother’s house.

The legislation would shift the current “reasonable force” rule to a “necessary force” standard, according to the AP.

In Return of the Jedi, it’s repeatedly and explicitly demonstrated that Luke is a pacifist:

  • Luke’s first attempt to rescue Han from Jabba is a peaceful negotiation.
  • Luke dissuades his friends from using violence against their Ewok captors.
  • When Luke and his friends are about to be cooked by Ewoks, he resolves the situation peacefully.
  • Luke refuses to fight Vader until finally being manipulated by the Emperor.
  • Luke even refuses to fight the Emperor himself.

Sounds like you’re very selectively remembering that movie. #rotjpigmen, anyone? As for the rest of your post…

There is meaningful discussion to be had about the Parkland kids, but it appears that much of the right isn’t interested in having that discussion. Day after day, it’s these disgusting memes about how the Parkland kids are Nazis, or wimps, or tidepod eaters, or just “too young to understand politics.” And now the people who are actually serious about politics and not just “memers” are afraid to address the points that are being made because they don’t want to be lumped in with the aforementioned sickos. And, straight up, fuck anyone who peddles that crisis actor bullshit. They don’t deserve to be engaged with on any level.

Well in my humble opinion, of course without offending anyone who thinks differently from my point of view, but also looking at this matter in a different way and without wanting to fight, and by trying to make it clear, and further by considering each and everyone’s opinion, I honestly believe that I completely forgot what I was going to say. Thank you for your patience

OK guys, saw the movie a few more times. Still love it to bits but now I notice the movie does indeed have one flaw: when Luke becomes one with the Force his prosthetic hand vanishes along with him. I think it should have remained in the physical realm and dropped.

I mean… I guess. I don’t think we know enough about Star Wars’ prosthetic limb technology or the force to make a final judgement either way. I think if his hand did drop, it would’ve totally ruined the tone of the scene. It would come off as a joke, and that certainly wasn’t the time for jokes.
