The Flood / Re: Game of Thrones Episodes 5 and 6
« on: May 12, 2019, 01:09:43 PM »
Not actually a spoiler, just a funny hypothesis on how things will end
Based on DnDs writing, Here is my theory on how the show series will end.

Arya gets captured by Cersei somehow (because the plot demands it). When Jon enters the red keep to demand Cersei stands down to end the war, he starts pleading for his sister’s life, even agreeing to bend the knee if she lets her live. Cersei thinks about it for a second and then orders Arya to be killed.

Right before Arya dies, her and Jon will share a heartfelt glance as she whispers “stick them with the pointy end” and winks. The mountain chops her head off. That’s when Jon charges the mountain while screaming. They fight for a while as Cersei is smirking in the corner. It looks as if Jon is loosing when Sandor M’er Effing Clegane COMES OUT OF NOWHERE just going all out on the mountain!!! At this point Cersei starts being a little worried because the are GOING AT IT and HOLLY SHIT it looks like the mountain has met his match. Jon takes this opportunity to charge Euron, who walked in to see what the commotion was. They fight for a while but Jon overpowers him and sticks his sword in his belly and says “Good day to sleep with the Krakens” as he watches the life drain from Euron’s eyes. Cersei is scarred at this point and flees from the room.

The mountain finally overpowers the Hound, and right as it seems like all hope is lost, Sandor finds some extra energy and gives a final mighty swing of his sword, lobbing Gregor’s head CLEAN OFF. Right before the mountain falls he says “Always make sure to put down a rabid dog”. Then Sandor Collapses himself from his injuries. Sansa, who just walked in for whatever reason, sees him and runs up to him asking “What happened??? he...Dead?” The Hound says “That’s just the way the umm...Mountain crumbles”. Then he passes out.

The surviving Stark go to find Cersei (Bran is being pushed). They walk (roll) around the castle until they finally find her in a room with Jamie. They assume that Jamie has turned against them so Jon gets ready to fight. But he turns to a weeping Cersei and says “the things we do for love” before stabbing her in the back.

Tormund walks in. Everyone is is like “Tormund, how did you get down here so fast?” That’s when Tormund pulls his face off and it’s actually Arya. They all laugh.

How did you come to that conclusion?

I mean, it's one thing to have your grievances with Carmen and then use her trans identity against her because of pre-existing problems (it's still not okay but it's understandable,) it's another to call someone a degenerate because they're using hormone suppliments.

1. I was talking to Cheat, and not about Class
2. Read the post I quoted, titled "Quote from: Cheat on April 25, 2019, 05:24:14 PM"
3. I have never used anyone's gender identity against them. When I'm rude to Class, it has nothing to do with gender identity, transgenderism, sexual orientation, yadda yadda yadda.

You stumbled onto a bit of an inside joke, and I figured if I quoted Cheat's original post, the joke might explain itself.
Maybe I should explain it better?

In a thread I made about appreciating the things you have and not thinking about the things you don't, I mentioned that there really wasn't any point in being jealous of girls who pass better than me because honestly, I look okay. Cheat replied, saying he (she? I'm genuinely confused because of the next part of the story) was surprised to learn I was trans, and "...this fucking site is full of degenerates, I swear.". When Cheat casually mentioned regretting not logging (their?) progress, I repeated  "...this fucking site is full of degenerates, I swear.", because this is the first time I have ever heard that Cheat takes HRT.

I haven't said anything negative about SecondClass in this thread with the exception of calling her "a real jerk".

My bad, didn't see that. I thought you were being genuine.

I loved Black Armory and I'm still consistently playing this game on PC. Unfortunately my Klan is full of alt-right retards and that's the biggest detractor for me right now. Zero Hour was bad-ass, and a modest improvement over The Whisper.

Super long wall of text
I'm gonna try and put all my thoughts together but I'm probably (like guaranteed) to miss a lot of stuff that I made a mental note of during the movie. I'm just gonna use meme arrows as bullet points because I tend to miss even more of my own thoughts when I try to condense things into paragraphs. I'll also put my joke nit picks in a additional spoiler bracket since my joke nit picks from Infinity War anally ass ravaged a few people on here. Spoilers obvious, the spoiler collapse for the length of post.

TL;DR: It was fucking 10/10 Kino

Before the movie:

>I'd like to give a shout out to Square Enix for getting me excited for seeing this movie by including a trailer for Shadowbringers FFXIV in the pre-preview advertisements. I've seen the full extended trailer well over 50 times by now, but seeing it on the big screen made me all the more happy with my ticket purchase.
>I liked all the movie previews I saw surprisingly but man am I excited as FUCK for Detective Pikachu.
>Not that many trailers, which is good. Got to the actually movie starting after a fair amount of time.
>I got recliner seats and only paid 4 bucks for an XL popcorn and XL drink so I was ready to go.

The movie itself:

>Like I said in my previous post: A five minute intermission would not have hindered this movie at all. Gone With The Wind had a ten minute intermission and that film is considered Kino by the Library Of Congress.
>Starting with Hawkeye's family getting Snapped was actually pretty rough to watch. Camera work and tone was way off from typical Marvel movies and therefore felt right for this particular Marvel title.
>Thanos telling Thor to aim for the head and then having Thor decapitate him was fucking brilliant. Didn't think the Russo brothers would do something from so small a detail but they play me like a fiddle later on in the movie with more of similar stuff.

>Speaking of Thor, his hobo scene in New Asgard was one of the funniest fucking scenes I've laughed at in years. I was holding in laughing well after the movie got serious and moved on from it, I just couldn't get my mind off it. The sheer over the top blunt silliness was just perfect.
>Seeing Tony start a family only enforced my own goal of one day wanting to start one. Everything I do in life is literally just to help one day reach it and this movie showing all that family stuff really hit close to home (Not as close as Evangelion has ever gotten to me but Evangelion was made specifically for people like me whereas Marvel is aimed at a much broader audience).
>Please tell me I wasn't the only one who caught Ant Man Baneposting in the movie. "We met at the airport....I was the big guy....I had a mask" that shit had me fucking weak.
>Having the characters make fun of the time travel mechanics is great considering at face value, having time travel mechanics in any serious film has always been....lackluster and detrimental to the plot. Luckily the Russo brothers handled it VERY carefully and it didn't end up ruining the film, even if it did leave me confused on a variety of points.
>So five years goes by, but we don't see any results of the Snap. We get one aerial view of an empty baseball field, and Scott visiting a graveyard but nothing else really. We're consistently told things are so different now but I feel like the Russo brothers should have spent a little more time fleshing that out.
>I'm kind of confused about the actual plot revolving the Space Stone/Blue Cube. I was first confused by it appearing in Captain Marvel cause it was my understanding that it was frozen with Captain America but the movies combined tend to have this particular stone all over the place.
>Having Captain America whisper Hail Hydra was a pretty great nod at the mistakes the comic books having been making as of late. I'm glad Disney can acknowledge internal screw ups and use them for positive gains.
>The time heist scenes (the second act of the three) were a little less exciting than I thought it would be, Infinity War was nonstop relentless thrill and action whereas half the scenes were kind of just nods at themselves from previous movies. I actually used the scene where Nebula fights herself to use the restroom and I was able to pick up immediately what was going on when I came back because it was kind of obvious how it was gonna play out. I wouldn't call it bad though, I couldn't see the Russo brothers coming up with a better solution given the structure of the story.
>I'd like to take this meme arrow and dedicate it to the Russo brothers themselves. More big project movies need a second person with equal command behind the wheel to help keep each other in check. All too often we get a movie with a write/director/producer with a vision which is GOOD but the movie falls flat on it's face cause no one reeled them in. I can think of a certain big name Disney movie coming out this December that could definitely use a second chief in charge *cough*cough*Star Wars*cough*.
>The final battle was straight up entertaining to watch. I normally don't get phased by pure cool/action shot porn, but I was in agreement with the applauding audience when Captain America grabbed Thor's hammer. That shit completely blew my fucking mind.
>The choreography was absolutely topnotch. Most action scenes these days have so much shit going on you can't tell what happening, so having it being comprehensible AND badass is an A+ in my book.
>I concur with Aether's post about Tony killing Thanos. Tony felt like the MC of the entire MCU and seeing him be the one to beat the big bad and end this(his) story arc was a good call. It was a perfect roundabout beginning (with the first Iron Man film) and ending (" Iron Man").

Tony Stark's death & Spiderman:

>Alright Disney, fucking fine, you win, I'm not made of stone. Seeing Peter for that split two seconds before Potts moves him away definitely hit me hard. I'm particular hard on Tom Holland's Spiderman partly because I see so much of myself in this iteration of Peter Parker but keeping an unmoved reaction from that moment would've been a struggle I knew I wasn't going to win.


>It's no fault of the movie or Marvel, but theater etiquette has really gone out the window these days. Yeah, a scene is cool, hype and all kinds of badass, but can people not screech like a animal into the ear of the guy sitting next to them? I understand getting excited and everything but this particular case was noticeably unpleasant.
>I'm glad they ended the movie with Captain America. Tony may have been the MC but the Capt was definitely the runner up. And he also drove home the point I made further up about starting a family. Fuck the naysayers, I WILL WIN! ;-;
>Not having an end credits scene was perfect. Even though we're getting Black Panther 2 and Spiderman 2 and GoTG3 and all the sequels, it feels like a clean slate. I may not be able to keep up with their new arc, I was only able to catch up to this one because of a friend but I'm still interested/invested. Especially since DC has been shitting the bed (what they're doing to Teen Titans is fucking criminal).

Joke Nitpick Time!

>How did Captain Marvel find Tony Stark? She had no idea where he was.
>Running out of oxygen? Forget that Tony, what the fuck have you been eating?
>If Thanos wanted to make his Snap absolutely permanent with no reversal why didn't he just force all the heroes to die to the Snap and THEN kill half the universe at random? He had no problem killing everyone else that got in his way, why is it suddenly different after the fact when he had enough foresight to plan to get rid of the stones afterwards?
>Having Thor play Fortnite and not do the floss dance at any point during the movie is absolutely unforgivable.
>So five years have gone by, and Captain is telling a support group to move on....but he cant. That little hypocritical shit goes back on the GOOD advice he's been giving people and does the complete opposite. If I wanted to watch a hopeless romantic go back on what he's been saying and end up dying at the end I'd rewatch Cowboy Bebop.
>Any time any writer wants to introduce Time Travel into their plot, they need to stop and ask "Can I introduce Bruce Almighty right here, right now, into this scene where I want to use time travel, and still tell the same story I want to tell?" If the answer is no (which it almost always will be), they need to put the pen down and go back to the drawing board.
>Scott's daughter was just a tiny little girl, five years would not make her the much older.
>How did Nebula know about Morag? Didn't Thanos only take Gamora to get the Soul Stone?
>Where did Loki go with the Space Stone? He literally just NOPE'D on outta there.
>They have just enough Pym Particles for everyone for a round trip. Not too many, not too few, that sure is awfully convenient for the plot of this movie!
>What the fuck was Hawkeye doing in Tokyo?
>Why would Tony think that helping bring everyone back from the Snap undo his family? We learn later on in the movie that you can do fuck all in the past and have no consequences in the future.
>Wouldn't future Nebula know that she'd be linked to Thanos's wifi-whatever and as a result risk being caught the way she did when she was on Morag?
>Should Tony and Steve had maybe told Scott there plan to go back to the 70s? What reason was there to leave him in the dark?
>I like how Tony tells everyone not to do Butterfly Effect bullshit before going back in time and HE HIMSELF doesn't keep his interaction with his father to a minimum. We're supposed to be [mildly] disappointed in Thor for going to see his mom, but Tony gets a free pass? No.
>So we see in multiple instances that they diverged from the original timeline, (knocking out Quill, Captain fighting Captain, Loki teleporting to Aldenard for all we know) yet the future is still the same? No.
>Right before all the female cast back up Captain Marvel, they say "We'll back her up" but why? Nothing we've seen from both this film and Captain Marvel would lead us to think that she couldn't handle that entire army by herself. She takes down fucking warships just by flying through them. Honestly, what realistic damage could any of that army do to her?
>Why didn't they just use the stones to bring back Tony? Or Vision? Or anybody other than Black Widow/Gamora who died for the soul stone? They're literal gods with all of them.
>Why didn't they just have Thor go back in time to right before the Snap and aim for the head? Or at any other point where they could just easily kill Thanos and prevent the Snap?
>I hope Steve understands that by spending the rest of his life with Peggy, he also has to live the rest of his life knowing his good pal Bucky is in some shitpit somewhere getting tortured. BUCKY WAS A GOOD BOY, HE DINDU NUFFIN

Thank you so much for your service.

It's really disheartening to see people on my feed defending the last episode. I had one guy tell me that we're jumping to conclusions and not giving the "amazing writers" enough credit by suggesting that the White Walker threat is over. You know, despite there only being 3 episodes left, with the next episode preview showing only King's Landing scenes.

how am I gross

I'm saying he's "gross" the in the same way he considers you to be gross. There are things you've done here I don't approve of that I could describe as gross (working high, stealing, b & e), but I would sooner just say "disapprove."

My problem with Jive's post is that he's trying to shame you for sucking dick... while he relentlessly talks about his sex life and posts grotesque photos of his last conquest's dismembered vulva. As if he isn't a slut. Then he tries to look down on drug users as if he isn't a junkie, too. And he does all this to fuel a superiority complex and justify looking down on people he doesn't even know. He's in no position to say anything.

thanks for actually using my name tho

Of course :) Although admittedly I still call you Class sometimes out of habit.

Imagine how useful this human life could've been if it had been awarded to some entity worth granting existence on the material plane to.

Then look at this autistic Pokémon picture and think to yourself, wondering not only how much time it took to complete this task, but how much devotion over the course of this being's life was wasted doing this in inconsequential thing that nobody cares about.

The Flood / Re: Corvette C8 to be revealed in July
« on: April 14, 2019, 04:42:13 PM »
I've driven a C7 z06, and at low RPMs it makes the most terrible noise imaginable. The tire-roar on these things is bloody awful. The interior is made of 90% cheap plastic trim, the suspension has no give, thus making it bumpier than a horse and buggy on the road and I've never liked the gearbox.

As someone who drives the 2015 z06 regularly (and has more experience on the mechanical side than the layman) I can verify that none of these are really true. I've never once noticed an unimaginably awful noise at low RPMs; it sounds different but every vehicle sounds different. Tire-roar is there but it's absolutely nothing to write home about negatively. Interior is poorly designed but it is by no means cheap. And it's honestly a pretty smooth ride overall.

Truthfully my biggest problem with the C7 is the interior design and 360° visibility. You simply cannot see your blindspots nearly as well as you could in previous generations. For example I drive a C4 mainly in the summer and that thing feels like an aquarium on wheels with its visibility.

Disney seems pretty content with letting Star Wars in gaming go right down the shitter. I wouldn't expect them to allow players a great gaming experience like a remastered KOTOR for free when they are pretty adamant about letting EA have the exclusive rights to do anything Star Wars related in gaming where they can aggressively monetize it.

I remember reading that Disney is actually quite unhappy with the way EA is monetising Star Wars at the moment.

Generally speaking, the apostrophe is used for contractions of words. So if you mean to use "you are" ("You are it,") you use the "you're" version of the word. Same with "they're" ("they are").

"Your" is used for possession "Your dog is white."
