What’s this mean?

It’s a question mark.

You posted “If only it were possible for all teams to lose all of their games, then everyone would be disappointed. That’d sure make me happy.” Wondered why this is and sob I quoted you and posted the question mark. I thought it was clear I was asking for an explanation.

The back slashes go before each asterisk, like this:

If people don’t want me to sigh anymore, they shouldn’t do it themselves.

I’m not giving him shit, I’m suggesting an alternate and less-drastic solution.

If that’s what he needs though then good on him.

I’ve been annoyed with this piece of shit since day one. Touchscreens are a pain in the ass and the battery barely lasts half an afternoon. That and I just hate seeing other people using them made this seem like the most logical choice. I’ve said I was going to go back to my Razr for years, even on this forum. I’m glad I finally did.

It seems like you got a crappy smartphone.

Yes, most batteries last more than half an afternoon. Of course if you are using constantly, that will drain the battery faster.

You guys sure are giving hand man s*** for trying to improve his own outlook on things.

I applaud anyone taking concrete steps to solve their own problems.

I assure you it was not my intent to give him s*** for trying to improve his own outlook on things.

Why is that a good thing?

Smartphones are annoying and prolonged use of them is linked to negative emotional states.

I think you’re talking about social media. How is having a smartphone linked to negative emotions?

"Twenge’s research found that teens who spend five or more hours per day on their devices are 71 percent more likely to have one risk factor for suicide. And that’s regardless of the content consumed. Whether teens are watching cat videos or looking at something more serious, the amount of screen time — not the specific content — goes hand in hand with the higher instances of depression. "
https://www.npr.org/2017/12/17/571443683/the-call-in-teens-and-depression

Are you a teen? Sounds like the thing to do is to reduce one’s use to less than fire hours.

Really? I can’t how other people’s smartphone are annoying, but your own? I would think the negative emotional states would depend upon your emotion state in general and what you do on your smart phone and where you go in the net with it.

Also I hate touchscreens and a shitty battery.

Not much you can do about touchscreens, all new phones have that. But I am pretty sure some batteries are better than others.

You also have said if a movie is canon and its novelization is canon (or vice versa), and dialogue in one is not the same as the other, then which one ought to be canon? So I want to know which one you would consider canon and why, or whether it matters to you and why not if it doesn’t.

I think someone in another thread said that those in charge said that where the book and movie differ, the movie takes precedence.

I would think the original work takes precedence. That is, the Star Wars movies trump the books; but the Harry Potter books trump the movies.

makes sense.

Supplemental explanations from unofficial sources don’t excuse a plot holes or continuity errors in movies.

Why not?

Because the creators themselves didn’t explain it. Also the creators aren’t required to obey the explanation from an unofficial source.

unlike Star Trek books, Star Wars books are officially considered canon. So I guess explanations in them do count.

But why does official canon matter to you? Why do you care? I don’t say you shouldn’t; I ask why you do.

I am not sure how to answer that.

I’m sure what you want me to say. If you want to have your head canon, that is fine by me. But head canon and official canon are two different things. Official is official. Supplemental explanations from unofficial sources don’t excuse a plot holes or continuity errors in movies. I will say I was wrong about Star Wars books. Apparently, unlike Star Trek books, Star Wars books are officially considered canon. So I guess explanations in them do count.
