Kings James Version? Pfft. New Revised Standard Version or bust.

eh. New International Version or New Living Translation.
2011 NIV is fine. I’m not picky about it being the '84 NIV like some people might be.

New King James Version might be “poetic”, but I imagine that wasn’t the intent of the original authors of the scrolls/books (outside of Psalms and Song of Solomon, obviously). KJV has also been said to be the least accurate translation, but is widely popular because a) there is no copyright; and b) it was the first ever english translation widely available to the public at large.

I think it would be helpful if someone could explain what the different home video releases actually are and their differences. I don’t personally have that information though.

In the 1997 version it’s the one with the really bad Jaba the hutt it was the one released in theaters It adds Jedi rocks and Luke screaming as Luke drops off of the pole at the end of empire strikes back If you want that version look up harmys Respecialized

2004 version with Hayden Christian at the end of return of the Jedi and the really bad color correction and it adds Naboo to the end of return of the Jedi it adds the Ian mcdermand as the emperor in empire strikes back

2011 version it adds the r2d2 rock it adds Vader screaming no at the end of return of the Jedi it adds the really bad obi wan scream

That is the very brief version of the major changes

Yes, but there are more versions with changes than just these. Some are more subtle.

I want a physical Bible. I want my Bible in leather cover with gold gilding, not some impersonal text on a kindle.

The Bible does not work well on an eBook Reader.

It also does not work as -

…a hat; a pair of pants; a nose picker; a garage door opener; a talcum powder dispenser; etc…?

The Bible does not work well on an eBook Reader. But on an app, like the YouVersion app Life.Curch made, it works very well indeed.

I like both. Not either, but both.

I use Kindle because my wife can’t see how many Star Wars books I own.

Also she’s annoying, right?

Can’t tell if serious.

Also I can’t tell if that’s a subtle dig at me or not (carried over from the Bitching Thread).

First, please put a an empty line between what you’re quoting and your reply.

Second, what doubleofive means is that there are several “versions” of the film Star Wars, as when it was released at various times it had different things about it changed.

For example, the original theatrical Star Wars did not say “Episode IV: A New Hope” in the opening crawl. In a release on home video, during the escape from the Death Star the Stormtroopers had “Close the blast doors!” dialogue added. etc. There even were changes from the '97 Special Editions to the '04 Blurays to the ('11?) Blurays.

005 is asking you what aspects of Star Wars you’re looking for, beyond just “Special Edition” or “Theatrical”.

I wonder why Alaska’s gun death rate is so high.

Suicide. For real. Which is a huge chunk (over 60%) of all these guns deaths, but Alaska has either the first- or second-highest rate in the country, depending on the year (they trade places with Wyoming). Native Alaskans have one of the highest suicide rates on the planet.

Also, state gun regulations all have the “neighbor state” problem. If you’re near a state with lax gun laws, do the strict gun laws have as much of an effect in your state? Hawaii is a bit of an example of what happens when you have strict* gun laws and no neighbor state problem.

* “Strict” on a US scale, which goes from “very lax” at one end to “completely irresponsible regulatory void” at the other.

Sounds like we should ban suicide.

It did used to be a crime, but neither suicide nor attempted suicide was ever prosecuted. Apparently state laws that criminalized suicide were abolished in federal court. So now it is not.

I don’t read too many books anymore so I tend to go digital because it’s in a situation (travel, mainly) where I prioritize convenience over tangibility. Reading digital doesn’t bother me like it does some people.

Reading digital doesn’t bother me either, but I think the shine has worn off for me on the Kindle craze. I used to be all about digital because it’s so convenient, but lately I’ve been really indifferent to it as both have their advantages.

NJVC Custom Bluray Set of Harmy’s Despecialized Editions now available on Mega

In other words, there are files inside of the .iso. It’s sort of similar to a .zip file. And when you burn the .iso to the disc, you don’t want to actually burn the .iso file itself so that there is a single .iso file on the disc; but you instead want the burning software to extract the .iso while burning it. You want the burned disc, were you to insert it into your disc drive, to have files on it the same as if you were to, say, browse inside the .iso with WinZip.

Those people who make “Random Movie Fight Scene Here with Healthbars” videos are wasting their time. But then again, around 92% of all Youtube content creators are too.

Does that include the “How Many Times Do Marv and Harry Die in Home Alone?” videos?

I can’t tell if that’s a serious question. E-Readers usually have multiple selectable fonts.

I guess don’t like it when people complain about things not working right when the problem really is user error or that they haven’t given themselves enough time to learn how to use it.

I’d say it’s none of my business except you are the one who brought it up…do you think that she likes when you complain about her in a very public internet forum?

This isn’t very public. Neither she nor anyone else I know in real life visits the social places online that I visit outside of Facebook. She will not read this. No one I know in real life will read this, even though my family knows I come here regularly.
