I just don't picture Hillary going on rants and engaging in twitter brawls.

2018-01-12 08:28:58 UTC

the twitter brawls are great

2018-01-12 08:29:05 UTC

This is the best timeline.

2018-01-12 08:29:06 UTC

i loved the nuclear button shitposting

2018-01-12 08:29:08 UTC

@FuckHands McMike "There's no precedent for any ISP altering traffic speed before the 2015 NN regulations were put into place"
simply not true, mobile internet providers to this day are throttling services since they don't fall under title 2

2018-01-12 08:29:38 UTC

Yeah, I'm not sure who said that.

2018-01-12 08:29:49 UTC

Throttling does take place, I don't think anyone disputes that.

2018-01-12 08:30:05 UTC

"Google alone uses 21x more bandwidth than it actually pays for." what? google pays all of it's tier 1 service providers for the rates they charge, if they diddn't they wouldnt be a reliable network

2018-01-12 08:30:21 UTC

exactly what NN was a thing

2018-01-12 08:30:39 UTC

they wanted to pay the same as a small restaraunt for their massive use of the data

2018-01-12 08:30:54 UTC

ending NN is hurting the enemy

2018-01-12 08:31:09 UTC

tf are you talking about, small restaurants pay **more** for their bandwidth than google does

2018-01-12 08:31:19 UTC

oh that's what you meant

2018-01-12 08:31:23 UTC

Or people watching netflix all day bring up costs on everyone else

2018-01-12 08:31:47 UTC

soyboy programming should come with a massive tax

2018-01-12 08:32:10 UTC

i guarantee watching sjw programming is responsible for gyno

2018-01-12 08:32:17 UTC

datacenters have lower rates because they are usually placed right next to a backbone and the network infrastructure is already in place

2018-01-12 08:33:07 UTC

Programming? As in coding or streaming?

2018-01-12 08:33:15 UTC

as in shows

2018-01-12 08:33:33 UTC

it's many more times expensive to maintain a residential network simply due to maintenance and complying with the city, the cables themselves are worth nothing

2018-01-12 08:34:28 UTC

yep, plus fiber has other costs

2018-01-12 08:34:39 UTC

most residential networks are backed by fiber

2018-01-12 08:35:03 UTC

they are "converted" to broadband near homes

2018-01-12 08:35:55 UTC

i hope one day rural areas can achieve amazing internet

2018-01-12 08:36:15 UTC

they can, you just have to pay a shitload of money

2018-01-12 08:36:16 UTC

i want to move to the middle of nowhere and have a yurt withan atlas shelter below it

2018-01-12 08:41:03 UTC

this happening will lead to much entertainment if it receives legal attention

2018-01-12 08:42:01 UTC

I feel like I wouldnt mind living in the hills as long as I had internet and a decent rig.

2018-01-12 08:42:50 UTC

im a-ok with cooking outside and having a rocket stove

2018-01-12 08:42:57 UTC

all i want is internet

2018-01-12 08:43:07 UTC

thats maximum of my modernity desires

2018-01-12 08:43:49 UTC

besides, aliens have to invade someday, no point in being comfy

2018-01-12 08:46:08 UTC

Oh god also, on tims vid on oprah running.

2018-01-12 08:46:24 UTC

Lol let her run, easy win for Trump.

2018-01-12 08:46:49 UTC

Pretty much anyone the Dems are pushing would make for an easy win.

2018-01-12 08:47:35 UTC

Problem is their entire shtict was hey at least were not trump.

2018-01-12 08:47:59 UTC

i really wanted warren

2018-01-12 08:48:10 UTC

the banter is already written

2018-01-12 08:48:12 UTC

and ready

2018-01-12 08:49:20 UTC

But kinda spent.

2018-01-12 08:49:32 UTC

i got some funny news

2018-01-12 08:49:46 UTC

And only way it could go on was to piss of everyone instead of just warren.

2018-01-12 08:49:46 UTC

TLJ lost 92% of its screenings in China

2018-01-12 08:49:49 UTC

And her supporters.

2018-01-12 08:49:52 UTC

due to it being worthless to show

2018-01-12 08:50:24 UTC


2018-01-12 08:50:25 UTC

Jumaji and Fast and Furious both beat it

2018-01-12 08:52:42 UTC

Beanie Bros

2018-01-12 08:53:21 UTC

Wheres rhose numbers taken from?

2018-01-12 08:53:37 UTC

Chinese movie stats

2018-01-12 08:53:53 UTC

sorta like how we have weekly reports, they do too

2018-01-12 08:54:00 UTC

I mean like a link.

2018-01-12 08:54:09 UTC

i'd have to dig it back up

2018-01-12 08:54:11 UTC

Unless irs a rag or something.

2018-01-12 08:54:23 UTC

Eh ill look it up myself then

2018-01-12 08:54:39 UTC

you can google "The last jedi bombs in china" for many things on the subject

2018-01-12 08:55:07 UTC

its 5th week screenings are a fraction of what TFA was in its 5th week

2018-01-12 08:55:51 UTC

How would they retort I wonder.

2018-01-12 08:58:20 UTC

"but thats okay" is how a snowflake reacts to failure, its what their child development centers told them when they messed up as kids.

2018-01-12 08:58:37 UTC

Like they say. Sjws always double down.

2018-01-12 09:24:54 UTC

As someone whom one misspent summer can attest, the entire burying of the cables before even setting everything else up in a residential is a nightmare

2018-01-12 09:25:19 UTC

Oh, oops. Seems i didnt have it scrolled all the way to the bottum lol

2018-01-12 09:26:01 UTC

I remember seeing TLJ and it wasnt the SJW stuff that got to me.

2018-01-12 09:26:54 UTC

It was the basic discarding of military procedure, we saw two tie fighters critically damage the brudge of a cruiser, we then have an entire armada that has torpedos and missles but wont use them, and fighters and bombers but wont use them.

2018-01-12 09:27:19 UTC

Then you got the wyman in command, not commanding nor using her XO

2018-01-12 09:27:46 UTC

The CO issues an order then XO poe would dispose of that order, which he would have adored and they could have done a dozen diffrent ways

2018-01-12 09:28:20 UTC

The entire bombing run being a bad thing was moronic, a few bombers for a major captial ship? even if you have none left? Yes please.

2018-01-12 09:28:34 UTC

Then they arive into the base the crystal foxes show up and no one scouts?

2018-01-12 09:28:44 UTC

I mean come on.

2018-01-12 09:29:21 UTC

With all those massive mistakes i never got a chance to be offended at the hamfisting, the only sjw thing that got to me was the screwing the way yoda speaks they did

2018-01-12 09:35:34 UTC

My disappointment with cucked movies is that I see potential in the characters

2018-01-12 09:36:43 UTC

The writers ruin things with great potential

2018-01-12 09:38:26 UTC

Idk, its shining achivement is still going to make the phantom menace look good by comparasion.

2018-01-12 09:40:37 UTC

I think the argument is that the rebels and the ~~empire~~ first order are not exactly equals in terms of military strength. Losing a few fighters may be nothing to the first order, but it may mean a lot to the rebels, because they have far fewer resources and are fewer in number.

2018-01-12 09:41:02 UTC

So each loss needs matter.

2018-01-12 09:41:58 UTC

that much is obvious, however, there is a massively stupid reason behind it

2018-01-12 09:42:22 UTC

Yeah, it was still a bad scene, just not for those reasons is all I'm saying. lol

2018-01-12 09:42:24 UTC

that is what is left right after TFA

2018-01-12 09:42:36 UTC

how can they have the galaxy for 30 years and be taken out in one episode

2018-01-12 09:42:55 UTC

Which is one of the bigger issues I have with the movie, yeah.

2018-01-12 09:43:00 UTC

did they literally park their largest ships all at the same time on the 5 planets?

2018-01-12 09:43:18 UTC

then again this was a women's writing workshop script

2018-01-12 09:43:38 UTC

my point is.

2018-01-12 09:43:39 UTC

I was looking forward to seeing the republics retaliation against the first order and have an actual, you know... *war* take place, but nope, apparently all of the republic fleet was in orbit above those five planets. lol

2018-01-12 09:43:58 UTC

even if you have only 3 ships left, and the enemy has fifty, and your fighting to protect the galaxy.

2018-01-12 09:44:17 UTC

Destroying a heavy captial ship at the cost of a few bombers is a good pricei n a larger campain

2018-01-12 09:44:18 UTC

It's funny how they want to pull the 'women can lead too!' card in a movie where the good guys are getting absolutely pasted by the enemy.

2018-01-12 09:44:44 UTC

With repeated mistake after mistake, defeat after defeat.

2018-01-12 09:44:48 UTC

the good guys only lived becuase the entire concept of military and naval force was ignored\

2018-01-12 09:44:49 UTC

Talk about mixed messaging. kek

2018-01-12 09:44:52 UTC

they keep shitposting about their allies at the ends of the galaxy, but instead of taking a hyperspace lane to them they go to the salt planet

2018-01-12 09:45:00 UTC


2018-01-12 09:45:02 UTC

Memes be upon him.

2018-01-12 09:45:06 UTC

its so stupid

2018-01-12 09:45:18 UTC


2018-01-12 09:45:19 UTC


2018-01-12 09:45:29 UTC

they used subliminal drives to get to the salt plane5t

2018-01-12 09:45:31 UTC


2018-01-12 09:45:32 UTC

plus the hyperdrive kamikazi means that the mon calimari should have just an hero'd a droid into the emperor's chambers

2018-01-12 09:45:48 UTC

in ROJ

2018-01-12 09:45:54 UTC

no point in luke going there

2018-01-12 09:46:01 UTC

your not wrong

2018-01-12 09:46:11 UTC

the hysperspace attack thing is stupid for any number of reasons

2018-01-12 09:46:30 UTC

There is the TB reason that the ship and its target are in two diffrent states of matter

2018-01-12 09:46:43 UTC

its stupid becaue it retconned how it works and conflicts with the one time it was used in the books

2018-01-12 09:46:51 UTC

there is the mathematics of it just being impossible to line up a distant star and the two ships

2018-01-12 09:46:57 UTC

Exactly. Hyperspace is a separate dimension. The ship would not have crashed into the first order fleet, just gone through it.

2018-01-12 09:47:12 UTC

in the books IF you hyperdrive into something you will ruin the hyperspace lanes surrounding you

2018-01-12 09:47:14 UTC

also theres the laws of thermodynamics lol

2018-01-12 09:47:19 UTC

meaning they could never escape from salt land

2018-01-12 09:47:25 UTC

because the lane should be gone

2018-01-12 09:47:47 UTC

the entire TLJ was basicly like a bad fan fic someone wrotew

2018-01-12 09:47:59 UTC

Yeah, it's basically fanfiction.

2018-01-12 09:48:12 UTC

the actual canon of hyperspace was awesome originally

2018-01-12 09:48:31 UTC

its basically entering a different dimension and exiting back into the previous dimension

2018-01-12 09:48:38 UTC

Even if you ignore it just taking all of the older movies and lightning them on fire, TLJ even takes what TFA itself was setting up and then tosses it out a window.

2018-01-12 09:48:48 UTC

the FTL idea kicks ass originally

2018-01-12 09:49:11 UTC

fortunately none of it matters

2018-01-12 09:49:32 UTC

Kwisatz Haderach will be given to us by the director of Bladerunner 2049

2018-01-12 09:49:39 UTC

he says he wants to 1:1 the book

2018-01-12 09:50:41 UTC

You know what i would have loved

2018-01-12 09:50:50 UTC

No joke, the last jedi if I had writen it

2018-01-12 09:51:01 UTC

So awesome battles all that shit ok fine

2018-01-12 09:51:14 UTC

But the last jedi shit, so luke confesses he did the shit to ben swolo ok fine

2018-01-12 09:51:29 UTC

then as ben turns the saber, ZZZTTT jedi sentinals show up

2018-01-12 09:51:35 UTC

an entire fucking squad of them

2018-01-12 09:51:54 UTC

all force ghosts, and they correct all the shit extract ray and give her real training

2018-01-12 09:52:14 UTC

that would have been a far more intresting twist to the concept

2018-01-12 09:52:31 UTC

just saying

2018-01-12 09:52:52 UTC

I would have had Rey get her ass kicked for a third of the movie by force ghosts

2018-01-12 09:53:03 UTC

that is how Luke reached his mastery status in the original canon

2018-01-12 09:53:55 UTC

Since Luke ends up somewhat gray, he could have even had her retrieve a Sith artifact as a test to see if she could resist it.

2018-01-12 09:54:27 UTC

That would be similar to tests of the first Jedi in original canon

2018-01-12 09:54:57 UTC

again wasted potential

2018-01-12 09:55:04 UTC

or have an old as fuck asoka show up

2018-01-12 09:55:14 UTC

i like TCW a lot

2018-01-12 09:55:26 UTC

i didnt think i would like it, it was a cartoon

2018-01-12 09:55:30 UTC

her character development was very legit

2018-01-12 09:55:32 UTC

but I gave it a shot and holy fuck

2018-01-12 09:55:50 UTC

you got obi wan trollobi

2018-01-12 09:55:59 UTC

you got the awesome rex with deep plots

2018-01-12 09:56:04 UTC

Pre fucking vizla

2018-01-12 09:56:13 UTC

she is opposite of a mary sue, like rey, Ashoka went from retard to sparring with Darth Vader a series and a half later

2018-01-12 09:56:18 UTC

that character earned it

2018-01-12 09:56:31 UTC

sabine on the other hand... she is basically an MMO character

2018-01-12 09:56:40 UTC


2018-01-12 09:56:57 UTC

I mainly wat5ch rebels for chopper

2018-01-12 09:57:17 UTC

If you head cannon chopper is endlessly cussing at them in driod it makes the show infinately better

2018-01-12 09:57:26 UTC

I think the writing for Hera is on point

2018-01-12 09:57:35 UTC

she suffers a lot for her victories

2018-01-12 09:57:43 UTC

Kanan as well

2018-01-12 09:57:44 UTC

Which is great writing

2018-01-12 09:57:54 UTC

hollow victories mean nothing

2018-01-12 09:58:00 UTC

I wish Sabine wasnt a Mary Sue since I like Madalore stories

2018-01-12 09:58:09 UTC


2018-01-12 09:58:25 UTC

Ezra should have been a side-character

2018-01-12 09:58:31 UTC

The clone commando series, have you read it?

2018-01-12 09:58:41 UTC

Hera, Kanan, Sabine should have been the mains

2018-01-12 09:58:48 UTC

with Sabine not being a Mary Sue

2018-01-12 09:59:13 UTC

I dont think so

2018-01-12 09:59:29 UTC

was it the poorly animated one?

2018-01-12 09:59:41 UTC

i saw a lot of that one

2018-01-12 10:00:41 UTC

No its a book series

2018-01-12 10:01:48 UTC

if you love mando'ade stories

2018-01-12 10:02:00 UTC

you need to find the star wars clone commando series writen by Karen Traviss

2018-01-12 10:02:35 UTC

it details Kal Skirata, and his adopted family whom defected after order 66

2018-01-12 10:02:49 UTC

it also is the orgin story of the single most badass character in all of star wars

2018-01-12 10:02:53 UTC


2018-01-12 10:03:45 UTC

The offspring of a clone commando and a jedi knight, with the training and instincts of a mandalorian

2018-01-12 10:04:14 UTC

In the before times, when the mouse didnt reem the star wars franchise, he was the one whom trained jaina to defeat her brother.

2018-01-12 10:04:49 UTC

Yo uwanna talk about deep story and character devolopments man you need to read those books

2018-01-12 10:05:17 UTC

excellent plot

2018-01-12 10:06:02 UTC

im going to head out, ill swing by tomorrow. peace!

2018-01-12 10:06:46 UTC


2018-01-12 11:21:08 UTC

I love you pool no homo

2018-01-12 11:48:02 UTC

I love Pool too, but happen to be of the bisexual tendencies.

2018-01-12 13:41:54 UTC

No harm no foul friend

2018-01-12 16:24:34 UTC

Star Wars needs a gritty war series following storm troopers tbh

2018-01-12 16:27:43 UTC

^ Although they won't ever do it just because it'd involve being original

2018-01-12 16:29:18 UTC

Do you mean, Republic Commando?

2018-01-12 16:29:47 UTC

Thats an oldie

2018-01-12 16:29:51 UTC

But goldie

2018-01-12 16:30:32 UTC

Gritty SW was what I wanted. Band of Brothers and Saving Private Ryan level.

2018-01-12 16:41:24 UTC

Yeah thats the name of the book series but at one point it becomes imperial commando so i thought it just best to say clone commando and name the author

2018-01-12 16:41:44 UTC

Karen Traviss wrote the best mando'ade focused books EVER

2018-01-12 16:42:05 UTC

And star wars could have had that if they didnt retcon the vongesse war

2018-01-12 16:42:47 UTC

Karen Traviss is one of the worst writers to ever vomit words onto paper

2018-01-12 16:44:02 UTC

No, there's worse writers out there, by far

2018-01-12 16:44:54 UTC

One of.

2018-01-12 16:44:55 UTC

Not the

2018-01-12 16:49:13 UTC

Well the commando books were outstanding.

2018-01-12 16:49:41 UTC

But to be fair, I have not read anything else of hers. So maybe they are the exception idk.

2018-01-12 16:51:19 UTC

Is there trade disputes in those books? I love me some trade disputes and phantom menace left me wanting more

2018-01-12 16:52:04 UTC

I thought you were talking the game.

2018-01-12 16:52:28 UTC

Republic commando provably did a good job at humanizing the clones.

2018-01-12 16:59:42 UTC

Literally everything else she wrote can be summarized as 'taking a gigantic steaming shit all over every other part of the setting'

2018-01-12 16:59:49 UTC

Especially her Halo books

2018-01-12 17:03:49 UTC

Eh, timothy zahn is the one I,go to for sw books.

2018-01-12 17:04:15 UTC

I mean hes lead writer at bioware on the kotor series so no idea.

2018-01-12 17:35:40 UTC

Scotland seems to be pushing to give asylum-seekers and the like the right to vote.

2018-01-12 17:36:16 UTC

Well RIP Scotland I guess.

2018-01-12 17:36:49 UTC

Hope is on poland to stay sane in these turbulent times.

2018-01-12 17:43:15 UTC

this reminds me of that picture of the statue of william wallace surounded in a fence.

2018-01-12 17:45:29 UTC

With the wtf with you europe face

2018-01-12 17:46:54 UTC

Also while on the topic

2018-01-12 17:46:57 UTC

Wtf europe

2018-01-12 17:47:26 UTC

I am still shocked that germany hasnt begun marching in formation.

2018-01-12 17:47:51 UTC

Did they figure maybe this time if they delay and make it bad enough, they can come in on the white horse and be the heros?

2018-01-12 17:48:17 UTC

Think savages think about formation?

2018-01-12 17:48:17 UTC

I know germany is always using the EU and money to try to gain supremacy in europe, always has.

2018-01-12 17:48:33 UTC


2018-01-12 17:48:35 UTC

Oh no the germans are EXCEEDINGLY orginized

2018-01-12 17:48:52 UTC

What they cant handle is sudden or unexpected change

2018-01-12 17:49:18 UTC

It has been a trend throughout history.
