Black Panther just now. I think it was my first MCU movie since Winter Soldier. It was fine. I thought the story was pretty by-numbers, but I found most of the characters very appealing and I really dig everything about Wakanda. With any luck the inevitable sequel will get a little more adventurous with the plotting. These characters deserve it. Except Michael B. Jordan, who I thought was really terrible. If I didn’t already know who he was and this was the first thing I saw him in, I would have guessed he was a musician or something who hadn’t done a lot of acting. I remember his name being thrown around for Star Wars a couple years ago and this movie made me glad that nothing ever came of it.

Reported.

That’s old form, Dom; the in thing to do is to say “bad take.”

Reported because no one says that here, nor should they.

good give

Reported because it took me a minute to get it.

I’m glad to see Florida concentrating on the important issues and ignoring the meaningless ones.

http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/florida/fl-reg-florida-ap-pornography-health-20180221-story.html

Pornography is being declared a health risk by the Florida Legislature.

The state’s House of Representatives approved the resolution by a voice vote Tuesday, despite some members asking why the topic is being taken up at this time. The resolution was sponsored by Rep. Ross Spano, who is running for attorney general.

Spano said there’s research showing a connection between pornography use and mental and physical illnesses, forming and maintaining intimate relationships and deviant sexual behavior. The resolution states a need for education, research and policy changes to protect Floridians, especially teenagers, from pornography.

The Florida state House on Tuesday rejected a ban on many semiautomatic guns and large capacity magazines as dozens of survivors of last week’s school shooting headed to the state Capitol to turn their grief into political action.

Lawmakers voted down a motion to consider the ban during a session that opened with a prayer for the 17 people killed by a former student last Wednesday at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. The vote in the Republican-dominated body was 36-71.

Stoneman Douglas students in the gallery of the Capitol during the vote appeared stunned.

“It was just so heartbreaking to see how many (voters’) names were up there, especially after it was my school,” Sheryl Acquaroli, a 16-year-old junior from Stoneman Douglas, who was crying, later told “Anderson Cooper 360˚.” “It seemed almost heartless how they immediately pushed the button to say no.”

Heres a suggestion pan down to space falcon landing on Tatooine. Wipe to luke building his lightsaber, and then c3po and r2d2 go off to jabas palace.

You have no idea how much I hate the Luke saber scene. It ruins his great reveal later on in the movie, as well as not really serving a purpose in the story.

This.

Honestly, I don’t understand why people are so enamoured with this scene.

Because people go nuts over deleted scenes, no matter how poorly done or why they were deleted in the first place.

http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-court-guns-20180220-story.html

The Supreme Court made clear again Tuesday that the government has broad power to restrict and regulate firearms, dismissing a 2nd Amendment challenge to California’s 10-day waiting period for new gun purchases.

While the court has ruled that the 2nd Amendment protects the right of law-abiding citizens to own guns, the justices have repeatedly refused to go further by blocking strict gun regulations, including state bans on the sale of semi-automatic weapons or limits on who can carry a weapon in public.

Dissenting alone, Justice Clarence Thomas said “the 2nd Amendment is a disfavored right in this court.”

In 2008 and 2010, the high court struck down ordinances in Washington, D.C., and Chicago that prohibited the private possession of handguns as violations of 2nd Amendment. Americans have a right to have guns at home for self-defense, the court said in 5-4 decisions.

But since then, the justices have turned down gun rights advocates who have sued to challenge gun regulations based on the 2nd Amendment.

Do you guys see fat/obese people often?

Is this similar to an Asshole/Idiot?

Speaking of which, I think our politics friend was a Russian bot.

Warb may still be OP but I don’t like that his sigh has been nerfed.

Only because I started playing SWGOH, but I see what you did there!

SWGOH? what is that?

A pay to win mobile game with a theme.

WYSHS

But it’s also not a board game, as is chess.

How much do I have to pay to win?

Can you define winning anyway?

There’s no way to win.

It’s free to have fun, pay to get more stuff faster.

The OP might have something to say about all this.

I am OP.

Ok so what do you say?

I have no problem with what Warbler did.

Good, just wanted to be sure.
