Re: Ahmaud Arbery: Three US men guilty of murdering black jogger

The system working should be routine and expected, not something so rare that it is notable and seen as a reason to celebrate. The system works all the time. If it didn't, we would hear about it more. It's just high profile cases where it doesn't work that stick out. My study of American history in...

Re: NASA launches spacecraft to smash into asteroid in bid to nudge it off course

Would landing a rock on the asteroid, and turning it off, be a better shove?

Or is that 'nice idea, we don't have the tech yet'

Actually, Hate crime should be very easy to get. There is no other motive, and their 'looks like a suspect' was already blown out of the water.

Possible Protocal Holo-janeway is using :

"When under the control of non-Starfleet/Federation crew, get the ship back to Federation territory. Once there, head to the nearest starbase, with the crew unconcious if they resist, to let legitimate authorities decide what to do with them."

Yeah, the upper levels of the production are all accountable for this. Shut the production down, charge them all, and see who cuts deals to nail the others. Huh.

Re: Alec Baldwin 'heartbroken' and cooperating with police after fatal onset shooting of Halyna Hutchins

So, Management was warned this could happen, they didn't care, so the people that they needed on set to be safe (operationally and legally) walked off to force their hand. Instead of being smart, Management said 'keep going', and someone died.

I believe that qualifies for criminal charges.

Yes, another Iraq war could happen, or any similiar war. All you'd need to do is stage the above pictures in real life.

Re: Did the Death Star have a hidden purpose?

The purpose of the Death Star was to blow up planets, terrify the populace into submissive obedience, and to stroke Palpatine's ego. Nothing more.

It took two failures before he went 'fuck it, build me of Star Destroyers that can do the same thing'.

I wonder if the Morpheus like person is supposed to be the original Morpheus recast or a sucessor figure.

Re: Anyone reading the comics these days?

Comics, by their mere existence, will quickly contaminate any shared universe by the "need to publish"; whereas an A++ game takes two years to develop, plenty of time to at least make the plot not completely stupid. Bullshit. All you have to do is pre-plot out the comic books for several ...

The first two volumes of Doctor Aphra were entertaining, but Marvel quickly overused her, making her seem dumber with every appearance, as she can never stop staying out of trouble- similar to the badass decay Darth Vader was subjected to I have to agree here.

That's part of the reason they destroyed Aldeeraan. Yes, it was to get Leia to talk. However, it was also to send a message.

Re: Twitch got hacked change you passwords

Interesting, and unsurprising. (Mostly because there seems to be a lot of people that don't like twitch).

Could be an internal leak as well.

THe question is - will content normally behind a paywall also be released?
