He is one with the force.
Like Ben Kenobi.
Imagine going to Heaven, but being able to visit whenever you wanted to.


#3325421 Star Wars Battlefront Trailer

There's going to be DLC of a battle that leads into "The Force Awakens". The battle takes place after Return of the Jedi and involves that destroyer crashing in the desert.

#3324966 Hillary is a go, chances she wins the GE?

Posted by Cary Kollins on Today, 02:02 PM

I'm sure it's the same as people not voting for the candidate because he/she is black (yellow, brown, etc) and disregard the platform/policies that the candidate represents because of some characteristic like skin color, sexual orientation, religion, etc a person is.

I'm just wondering, don't these college kids know how to answer a question with thought and reasoning.



I'm not even going to bother watching the video, but I assume it's just some kids that weren't even old enough to vote in the last presidential election, plus they aren't expecting to be pasted as examples all over the conservative echochamber.

OK so, where are Luke and R2D2 in that one scene where it appears that is Luke's artificial hand touching R2?  Mustafar?


When Han says "we're home" is he referring to the Falcon?


When Luke says "...and you have it" is he talking about Rey?




So many questions.




also Luke says, "my father HAS it"



is Vader still alive?

One problem with Hillary is that everything she does seems so contrived. Yes, all political campaigns are staged, but for some reason everything she does seems like bullshit.

I don't really know how to explain it. It is like she is an awful actor just reading her lines. Nothing seems genuine, or spontaneous.

I am not a big Bill Clinton fan, but Bill can just walk into any room and seem comfortable with any group of people. Hillary not so much.

The closest thing she did to being genuine in 2008 was cry after New Hampshire. And you could tell that campaign saw the reaction and then started to do all these contrived humanizing things, and in turn made them seem more contrived.

Politicking is kinda like professional wrestling. Yeah, we all know it is fake, but if you perform well we can get behind you and appreciate the performance art and become invested in that wrestler.

If she wants to win this year she needs to streamline her campaign and have as few advisers as possible, because last time they were frantically looking for anything that got traction and had too many people telling her different things, and they looked disorganized and disingenuous.



That is a funny dynamic between her and Bill.



I actually read that in person, Hillary is actually much more down to earth and approachable than her husband.

G5's topic of the day is a made up topic by Fox News and he wants to pass it off as something real. We all already know that welfare fraud exists, but it's at the same or less in terms of percentage of fraud committed under any kind of program like this, for example the military or park service, construction sites, whatever.


You just have to pick on the poor because it's easy and reinforces your worldview that you worked hard and other people didn't, so I should get to decide things, reinforced by racial stereotypes and plain lack of empathy, and common greed.




for emphasis

#3324683 Why are Superman and Batman fighting?

Posted by Cary Kollins on Today, 11:00 AM






Also this Batman is unlike any we've seen on screen before. From what I've read, he's very much in the shadows, to the point people don't believe he even exists. He's a myth.

#3324587 Leaked Batman v Superman Trailer

Posted by Cary Kollins on Today, 09:47 AM

I was super pumped for this, and still am, but that teaser was pretty 'meh' overall.



Maybe if it were a little more darker, or had a little bit more rain....

#3323816 A Question brought up from IGO's latest podcast?

Posted by Cary Kollins on Yesterday, 05:40 PM

I'd say Bersin and Cotchery are done.

Philly will probably be able to contribute on special teams and stick around.

#3322392 Chris Christie wants to end Social Security payments to high-income beneficia...

Posted by Cary Kollins on 15 April 2015 - 11:05 AM

This was done for federal employees for many years. If I retired from the Navy, I would be able to draw my retirement pension from the Navy, but when I got old enough to draw SS, the amount would be the difference between my Navy pension and what SS said I should receive. The problem was my Navy pension was already more than what my SS draw would be, therefore, under the old law, I would not get any SS. 


Hypothetical example: My eligible SS draw at age 65 is $2K per month. My military pension is $1500 per month. Therefore SS would only pay me the difference ($500).


I'm not sure when that changed, but it was within the last 20 years if I'm not mistaken.



I believe this is what you are thinking of.



#3322357 Hernandez Gets life in Prison without the possibility of Parole

Posted by Cary Kollins on 15 April 2015 - 10:37 AM

got it right? the prosecution in no way proved that Hernandez pulled the trigger.  I'm not saying hes innocent, I just don't think the prosecution proved their case beyond a reasonable doubt.



got it right, meaning it's obvious Hernandez is a killer



He's going to be tried for a double murder as well. Not to mention his friend that he shot in the face and survived.
