Things that you believe that probably aren’t true

I believe in haunted houses.

Samezies, in fact I think many, I wouldn’t say most, but perhaps a majority, of houses that have been standing for a long time are haunted. Just haunted in the sense that a previous owner has accidentally left an imprint of their self behold. But most of the time their presence is benign and unintrusive so nobody notices. The house I live in now is most definitely not haunted as its only been standing since the 80s and the only previous owner died in a nursing home, my dad purchased it directly from their kids. (He rents it to me… Pretty sweet deal actually because he only charges me exactly what it costs to keep the place running basically I just pay the bills but didn’t have to buy it but I’ll still get it someday… And yes I’m aware of how lucky I am and how sweet of a deal this is and I’m very grateful about it my dad’s awesome) But I’m convinced the house I grew up in was haunted. The “ghost” didn’t seem to have any negative will or intentions or anything but they were there.

sounds like you believe it, and also believe it to be probably true, which is invalid for this thread. sorry. post about frozen pizza being better than fresh instead.

The Last Jedi: Legendary (SPOILERS)
Time

Just watched, with your commentary. Quite interesting to hear your grappling with this film. I didn’t have the same initial response that you did, and I think you ended up a a few different places than I did, but I found it very useful to hear you talk it through, while watching a movie like that in the background. 😋

For example, your description of the quick succession of subverted expectations around Luke’s death we’re not something I experienced or even could quite fathom why someone would experience, so your explanation was insightful.

it’s alright. So your memory is not that good then.

I just feel that when these groups shout. they use excuses that have no real meaning. It will be the are to many men in the film not enough women or vice versa The cast is not ethnically diverse enough and so on.

But if I watch a film, the last thing I about these sorts of questions.

I like films from all over the world and they do not have to be in English. I watch a film to follow the story. But injecting these sorts of view points like it does not have enough of this or it has too much of that and people yelling about stuff that does not even enter my mind. This makes me want to distance myself from anything like this because i hate it and it’s really horrid.

i don’t recall hearing about any groups shouting those things? maybe you are misremembering… I recall hearing of fringe groups complaining about the exact opposite (that there was an agenda to insert women and racial diversity at the expense of making sense).

I too like to watch my movies and not try to complain about the diversity of the cast.

I must be blessed to not suffer any white male guilt.

These are the kinds of posts I’m referring to when I say I have no idea what the hell you’re trying to say most of the time, although I usually know that at a minimum I’m going to roll my eyes, if not be outright hostile.

That would be unlike you.

I think the meaning is abundantly obvious. I don’t spend time or energy worrying about diversity. I recognize the historical reality where certain people didn’t have the same opportunities and it’s good to be aware of potential bias. But these quotas enforced by well-meaning mostly white males makes me roll my eyes. I expect that in an increasingly egalitarian society diversity occurs naturally.

it wasn’t abundantly obvious (hasn’t this forum taught us anything about misunderstandings? hehe).

I am still a bit confused if you are just saying you are glad you are non-white, or you are mocking what you perceive as white-guilt in the rest of us (as if that is the only reason to be inclusive?)

damn work laptop decides to not boot when i bring it home for a late night upgrade project tomorrow… (i have had this laptop for over 7 years, this is the first time it has done this to me)

damn zalman vcd enclosure won’t load my win 7 iso (I/O error??), it loads my win 10 iso’s just fine, but i don’t want to reinstall, i just need to attempt a repair…

sometimes i really hate technology…

Just before you attempt that mate… and it’s just a suggestion that you may have already tried… turn the
laptop off, remove the battery from the laptop, unplug the power. Now hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Put the battery back in, plug in the power and turn it on - hopefully it may now work (or be of use if ever happen again in the future).

Good luck with it.

Yes, that is good advice, it has helped me and others in the past.

Thankfully this fixed it, or I would have been really grumpy today.

The Last Jedi: Legendary (SPOILERS)

on linux, the only thing that would extract this was 7z. Dunno what is up with this zip file, but at least 7zip reads it.

JEDIT: spoke too soon, 7z spent forever acting like it would extract, only to fail saying “can not open the file as archive”.

unzip extracts it, but complains, and the file doesn’t hash to the torrent on myslpeen…

so, i guess my attempt to avoid pages of this by agreeing that sometimes i find mean things funny, did not work.

i’ll take that into consideration in the future. MFM, please, continue to vent.

I’ll not be taking your inability to scroll past some posts into consideration in the future.

you have to admit that i am able to scroll past posts, because i got to this post, did i not?
