My older sister is my favorite person on the planet, by far.

My older sister and I are friendly, but I do not count her as a “friend”. A close acquaintance, maybe. She watches my kiddo sometimes, and we can have a reasonable conversation about random things (in a group, say at a family party). However, she and I don’t have any similar interests but one, never hang out for any particular reason, and we don’t seek out each other’s opinion on really anything.

You let close acquaintances watch your kiddo?

Maybe he only considers his kid to be a close acquaintance.

In before “actually, the real Star Wars day is May 25”

Well personally I do think the May 4th thing is both recent and dumb, but I don’t really care either way.

We are going to an event this weekend where our daughters are going to dress up for the first time (matching Scavenger Rey’s) so that’s cool.

Now there are two of them!

One random girl with unexplained force abilities I could maybe understand. But two!? This is getting out of hand!

Even though I’m good at most things, I have a math deficit due to me being on the spectrum which has restricted me to only being able to do the 1st-4th-grade math. This is making finding a job very frustrating.

What are your strengths?

playing Age Of Mythology

I wouldn’t put this on a resume.

Actually I’ve heard that game development is not an uncommon field for some high-functioning autistic people to go into. Maybe it could be relevant!

You guys are completely overlooking Dek’s argument. He’s not saying simply that it the Last Crusade wasn’t meant to have a sequel, but that the film was explicitly designed to preclude the plausibility of a sequel. While you can say the former about Star Wars, you cannot say the latter. Very different arguments.

Actually, you can definitely say that about Return of the Jedi.

EDIT: Frink beat me to it.

Did I say you couldn’t? (by Star Wars I mean SW77)

I don’t necessarily agree with Dek that this means there can’t ever be another IJ movie, but at least argue with him on the correct terms.

Do you agree, if I may ask?

No. I agree Skull sucked. But I’d be happy to watch a good Indi movie. I was skeptical of the idea of SW sequels b/c I felt the same way about ROTJ as you do about TLC, but the sequels have been so good I don’t care.

“Sean Connery was only ever in five Bond movies because You Only Live Twice was designed to be his last one.”

Star Wars is only three six movies because Return of the Jedi Revenge of the Sith was designed to be the last one.”

False equivalence. What in YOLT gets in the way of the possibility of another Connery movie? I don’t recall any Connery going off into the sunset moment. Indeed, the character remains alive and well.
