Re: Light laffs

The NYT article saddens me because it is clear that Peterson is just a dumbass and a con rather than a lunatic.

Also, witches live in swamps? I guess his cultural touchstones are Minecraft and Disney.

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

I think I'm the only person that liked the casino scene. Sure it didn't advance the plot once, but at least it was a bit of trope inversion to have the unlikely and wild plan that is played out for way to long actually not work. The result was good because more genre franchise films need to crush d...

What really doesn't make sense is why everyone uses physical currency. Wtf. We have apps for that now and so far don't have space wizards.
This is a weird thing to believe. Tens of thousands to millions of inhabited planets. Keeping everyone on an electronic ledger would be complicated.
