An easy way to count is to click on your profile name and count all the posts you have made in this thread.
Yeah, how come this thread died all of a sudden? Laaame…
My replacement is… StarkillerAG.
Well, after I get off the ground, I call over the prison guard and ask to be moved to a different cell, because I want to make sure I get released in my next post.
JEDIT: Oh, and I put my fists up to ward off any further blows.
That guy with no name said:

Darn right I will. Watcha gonna do about it?

It was worth a shot…
Here’s a very unsatisfying GIF in response:
I’m halfway there. Can I apply for parole?
I’m glad you said so, because now I can post again. Only 6 posts to freedom!
I have a crouton I snuck in in my ear. Want to split it?
Here, doggy, doggy…
So we finally have a fun thread again in The Cantina and I’m imprisoned in it?! Outrageous.
Somewhere, out there, are several people who feel the same way and would love to meet someone like them. And there are several more who aren’t like that but who would be much more open to who you are.
You’re young yet. You just need to get out in to the world more and meet more people. And if that doesn’t work, try dating websites.
Fair enough. Certain ideas float around in popular Christianity that theologians in the same traditions wouldn’t take seriously.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church, which, as I’m sure you’re aware, is a pretty authoritative document, says this:
1033 We cannot be united with God unless we freely choose to love him. But we cannot love God if we sin gravely against him, against our neighbor or against ourselves: “He who does not love remains in death. Anyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.” Our Lord warns us that we shall be separated from him if we fail to meet the serious needs of the poor and the little ones who are his brethren. To die in mortal sin without repenting and accepting God’s merciful love means remaining separated from him for ever by our own free choice. This state of definitive self-exclusion from communion with God and the blessed is called “hell.”
1037 God predestines no one to go to hell; for this, a willful turning away from God (a mortal sin) is necessary, and persistence in it until the end. In the Eucharistic liturgy and in the daily prayers of her faithful, the Church implores the mercy of God, who does not want “any to perish, but all to come to repentance”
The belief that God doesn’t send people to hell, but that we send ourselves there, is exactly what mainstream Christianity believes (Catholicism, Orthodoxy, and many varieties of Protestantism). It’s mostly just Calvinists and fundamentalists who don’t believe that.
I think you’re right, as far as the article goes.
Omni, where did you hear that production was continuing without him?
The problem isn’t what Gilroy is doing, it’s that Disney is moving production forward, not pausing it until he comes back.
I hate big corporations… Once a company gets that big, all it cares about is money and the people are only a means to their end.
It sounds like season 2 of Andor will have a very different pacing. They’re planning to jump around in time, leading up to Rogue One, rather than doing a single story:
I’m sorry to hear that. Death sucks… A couple people I graduated with in 2017 died within a year, including one close friend. It isn’t fun. However, I think it’s taught me to appreciate every moment with those I love and to make the best of my time with them, knowing that it could always be the last time.
I’m glad to hear this, Spuffure. I think a break from the Internet will do you good. Best of luck for your future!
That’s really great to hear!
^^Sounds like a pretty good Christmas.
Thank you for correcting my lazy language. To be fair, though (to myself not to you 😛), I assumed you were yourself conflating the terms, as most people do. I don’t understand capitalism as well as I would like to, but I’m willing to admit it’s an inherently flawed system.
I have a somewhat different view of human nature than you do (fundamentally good, but also deeply damaged, as opposed to being balanced between the two), so if we’re going to have a productive conversation, we’d have to get into that. I don’t blame human nature, I blame the state in which human beings exist now, which is a corruption of the goodness inherent to human nature.
