I’ve never had waffles.

They’re a bit like crunchy pancakes or french toast. If you don’t like sweets I can see why you haven’t tried, but maybe you could enjoy one without sweet toppings.

I’ve also never had French toast.

Politics 2: Electric Boogaloo

At least it’s somewhat difficult in Illinois. I can’t get a gun for 5 years because I admitted to a doctor that I had suicidal thoughts. I’ve never been convicted of any crime much less a violent one.

And they are right for that too because I would absolutely be dead right now if I could have gotten my hands on a gun.

I know we are talking about homicide and not suicide though and that’s different.

Yhwx you really need to let the “Yhwx speak” thread Die, as it’s humor has long run out. We’ve had enough nonsensical posts about you getting lunch and dinner without bumping the thread to run it by us again. Much like the Possessed Speak thread which died when my swipe app started actually learning, the yhwx speak thread needs to die for not being funny anymore.

Everybody stop what you’re doing because you’re about to get the answer you’ve been dying for…

No I can’t see it either.

MPEG-2 is horribly inefficient by today’s standards

Not as true as you might think. At low bitrates yes of course. But at bluray level bitrates the difference isn’t so big.

Meaning a 5 gb mpg2 feature will pale in comparison to a 5 gb h264 feature, but a 22 gb mpg2 compared to h264 the difference wouldn’t be quite so apparent.

So yes I guess by definition that does make h264 more efficient, but when you’re talking a Blu ray sized file it doesn’t make a huge difference. I’ve authored a few Blu rays using mpg2 and they look fine even projected into a 120 inch screen as long as the average bitrate is a minimum of about 20 mbps, max at about 30.

No Star Wars Blu-Ray coffee? (Maybe it’s on your shelf) I don’t blame you anyway. Best things of the saga bluray are definitely the bonus material discs and content.

Yeah but you need them to watch despecialized

Maybe also depends on what codec they authored the bluray on? It’s not like DVD where it’s all mpg2. Most these Days seem to use avc but I think h264 and mpeg2 are also technically bluray compliant.
