  1. maybe the Ili Rebellion sides wouldn't "map well"...

    maybe the Ili Rebellion sides wouldn't "map well" today with career politicians and right-wing pundits... but they'd probably get treated like heroes by a lot of academics, Hollywood, social media,...

    to repeat: part of the reason so many people are taking China as a serious threat is because they've got a really long history of being a significant global player. China had imperial dynasties in...

    I know the question wasn't directed at me... but, yes.

    starting around 2013 I started researching China for a WW2 video game mod. my idea was to move away from the original game's focus on the...

    well, at least PwrdOn didn't deny that China invaded Vietnam. so, that's encouraging!

    so, is the idea that they sent over 200,000 soldiers and hundreds of tanks into Vietnamese territory for...

    the main reason I bothered to mention France and Poland is this: France utterly failed Poland when it came to delivering useful weapons in a timely manner when Poland clearly needed them. maybe...

    if your buddy in another state offers you a shotgun to defend your house, and another friend from a nearby city offers you a pistol... wouldn't it make sense, if you felt urgently in danger, to make...

    can we safely assume that this was meant to be strictly H2H (aka no shield)?

    because if Cap gets standard equipment he's going to wreck Fujita for sure.

    without it, I think Cap would win after...

    I recall reading an article at CounterPunch about how it's time for us to abolish the U.S. Senate because it stands in the way of equality and progress. I know the author really stacked the deck in...

    I'm fine with them fleshing out Chani's part and giving her more screen time... but, rewriting the entire second half of the novel to make her the primary character? that wouldn't be nearly as cool...

    it's fashionable and respectable to condemn corporate greed and wickedness. it feels good. it makes us look even better.

    but, in my experience, the little worker bees aren't really any better...

    I'm feeling a bit out of the loop... how was Chani central to the last half of first Dune novel? yeah, she was important... but not more important than Lady Jessica, Stilgar, Thufir Hawat, or...

    LOL. I already said I wasn't going to watch it. is this thread reserved only for those people who love everything about the franchise?

    you wrote to Common Writer (the person who stated this...

    LOL!

    last I checked, employees still work to get paid! they exchange their time and labor for money. seems pretty straight-forward, doesn't it?

    maybe Disney should use slave labor to make...

    well, since the thread got necro'd...

    it sounds ludicrous to write these words but... superheroes have an advantage over Star Trek in that they are more consistently written as a reflection of the...

    the Matrix should have been a single film.

    the sequels were pretty dreadful films that had interesting set pieces.

    have absolutely no desire to see the Matrix 4. I would probably sooner watch...

    I generally respect your opinions. you typically have well thought reasons for what you write. but I think you're out of line when you make arguments in this way.

    don't pretend as though I'm...

    I dunno if this is -just- corporate greed at work. we're talking about a 32-inch tall figure with 70 points of articulation, a fair amount of detail, multiple colors, built in lights, etc. and the...

    I don't recall her complaining either... at least, not publicly. as an ambitious and professional politician I would expect that.

    but, it did seem like half of all the people I knew kept...

    if you put Kim Possible up against any Daughter of Aku, let alone Ashi, the only way this might be a fight is if the following conditions are laid down:

    given that I enjoyed the direct-to-video "Hellboy" movies... I was really hoping that they could have given us a full season or two of "Hellboy" as an animated series. they already had tons of solid...

    I guess the luckiest thing that happened to me is living past my first year. I was extremely premature and the doctors told my parents that I would probably die while on life support. they also...

    my parents didn't really listen to the radio. so, probably the earliest pop song I can remember is Burl Ives "Where's Joe (the Marmalade Cat)" on vinyl.

    it wasn't until my mother remarried that I...

    which makes it more baffling that when Cell used it on Piccolo, Trunks, and Krillin should have all seen that attack coming and found a way to no-sell it. especially since they had Cell outnumbered....
