I enjoy Rocky and Bullwinkle stuff. I enjoyed the movie, despite the fact that I fully expected it to suck, so I'm going to give this one a shot at least. If I'm disappointed, I'll mentally throw it down the memory hole and go blissfully on my way.

Re: The Not-So- and All-Too-Real World of North Korea

I will pay good money for one of those. It'll be the first item in my museum exhibition, "Artifacts of Failure."

(Now that I think about it, that would actually be an amusing and interesting collection.)

Kinda. I mean, it's a mutually beneficial arrangement, actually. Hard to describe that as "having them by the balls" unless you view all commerce that way.

Re: Powerful Mice in Space (The New Star Wars Gripe Thread)

Between the workspaces, living spaces, trash compactors, the void surrounding the central power reactor, and the random bottomless chasms every 500 feet, there's not a lot of mass to generate that gravity. The reactor, and the shielding surrounding it, was very massive indeed? I dunno; I don't reme...

The proton torpedoes that destroyed the Death Star at the Battle of Yavin also had parabolic trajectories.
Yes, but the moon-sized Death Star would have been big enough, I imagine, to generate its own gravitational pull.

Far Cry 5. I love this series, and I love this iteration of it even more. The setup is this: you're a sheriff's deputy in Montana, and you're heading into a relatively isolated region in order to arrest a cult leader. Things go very badly, and now you're isolated and on the run in cult-held territor...

There's "incel'allah" for you... interestingly, as written, this phrase apparently translates to "God's forgiveness." There's probably a lesson to be had in that, for anyone who cares enough to try and figure out what it might be.

Re: You Learn Something New Every Day

I'm still stuck on the "presumably, when things had settled down and earth was again spinning normally" part. Did they think it would... just start spinning again on its own? Or was there supposed to be a second massive array of rocket engines pointed in the other direction to get it going again?

You've put the carrots in the wrong positions. You're never going to perfectly match the recipe card if you don't start paying attention to the details! Now fix the carrot placement, and then we'll give it a good coat of lacquer and let it dry overnight.
