A bit like how the government has continually sabotaged the free market system? Almost like neither system works, because of the way human beings are…
Pretty sure the Roman Empire and the Middle Ages had plenty of similar problems before capitalism was even on the horizon. The problems with capitalism are primarily problems with human beings being flawed. In a perfect world, capitalism would work just fine (just like communism, which never works in reality).
I don’t hate that, depending on how they do it, but do we really need alternate timeline or multiverse stuff in Star Wars? That just makes it like every other sci-fi universe…
But that’s a lot more difficult than just not using the Internet, isn’t it? Hence the desire for that problem to not be there in the first place…
For sure, but the very nature of addiction is that if you are in a place that triggers addictive behaviour (the “place” in this case being the Internet itself), it takes a lot of willpower to avoid. If you have OCD or other mental health conditions as Spuffure does, it’s that much harder.
Yeah, unfortunately the Internet is unavoidable for anyone in school or many lines of work and is thus a constant distraction/temptation. It’s addictive and always in reach. At this point, not using the Internet is a bit like never going outside.
That tends to happen to old people in general. 😛
I watched it just after re-reading the book and I loved it.
My family still has quite a few. A lot have been broken by frequent use (especially the ships), but there’s a lot in decent condition. Nothing in mint condition though, so probably nothing is worth all that much.
As a fellow student, I feel you.
I only just saw this. This is sad news, but thank you broth3r for letting us know. We’ve been missing him for some time now
Sorry to hear that. That’s really rough… There are a lot of bad people out there. Fortunately, there are a lot of good people too. I hope one day you’ll have a genuinely fulfilling friendship.
Dude, chill out. He was just asking what that means, since most people don’t know what a “practical physics exam” is.
Good for both of you!
Eh, I think IMDb counts as numbers, but admittedly, most people don’t contribute to IMDb.
I just mean that you can’t qualify something a failure if a minority of people think it failed. It would be a failure objectively speaking if the people who liked it were in the minority.
I would not say Obi-Wan was a failure… I’ve yet to come across someone in person who’s seen the show and doesn’t love it.
Shoot, sorry to hear that, man. That’s never fun.
I remember loving the concept when I watched it. I don’t remember how good the plot was.
You’d be surprised what a pair of coveralls and a ladder will do in lieu of a security clearance 😉
Indeed. My dad used to do sales/installs and when doing a quotation in a prison, he wasn’t subjected to a lot of the regular restrictions (since he needed tools for measuring and such). He was allowed to walk right in, no questions asked, with a bunch of stuff that prisoners could have potentially used to get themselves out of jail. When you look like you have a job to do, no one’s going to stop and ask what you’re doing.
Half an hour, assuming it’s the only shows you’re trying to keep up with. Most people have several shows on the go. For me, the choice becomes one between Marvel and everything else (though usually I can keep up with both Star Wars and Marvel, if that’s all I watch).
You never saw Aliens? It’s incredible.
No, he said he never saw the sequels.
Agreed, but mostly because I’m a busy adult now. There was a time when I would have loved this pace. Now it’s just hard to keep up.
