The Man From Earth is one of my all time favorite movies. Easily top 10. A rare, and underappreciated gem.
I must watch it at least once a year. So much to think about. Great movie to watch with friends and then sit down at talk about for hours.

Oh and speaking of "The Man From Earth" -- has anyone watch the 2017 sequel "The Man from Earth: Holocene"? I'd like to but I'm concerned it will ruin the original for me somehow.

Didn't see Tenet yet.
Why are movies so bad, ...
Watched about half an hour of Greenland and figured that was all anybody should ever watch of it.
I have no desire to watch Wonder Woman.
The best movie I've seen recently is "I Care a Lot."

If the earth's magnetic field decides to flip polarity once again, well, as with so much that is completely beyond the control of man in this universe, voting for (D)s and paying high taxes, including carbon taxes, will be exercises in sheer futility. If anyone says he can stop events of this magnitude he's lying, of course. Censorship won't stop it. Blaming Donald Trump won't solve anything. Toppling historical statues, making up lies about historical figures to smear them, and trying to rewrite history with a racist bent won't help. Deciding to give US taxpayer money to the EU and 3rd-world countries in the name of the "Paris Accords" accomplishes absolutely nothing except to transfer US wealth under false pretenses into the pockets of people who did absolutely nothing to earn it. I despair of the younger generation these days. Some of them often seem bound and determined to fail if at all possible.

According to the Bible, the world's condition is just par for the course, and it says it's going to worsen. "The Great Tribulation" is coming (Matthew 24:21). That will happen after the world's governments turn on and destroyed most of the major religions. You think times are tough now. Jehovah is going to show people how powerless and fake their gods genuinely are. And for those who turn to governments for protection, there will be no salvation. Daniel 2:44 reads, "In the days of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom never to be destroyed, and God's kingdom will not pass on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it alone will stand forever" Verse 45, "The Grand God has made known ... what will happen in the future."

Baldurs gate adding overused cliche class. Come up with something original for once maybe?
A D&D game adding a staple D&D character is unoriginal to you? What the fuck are they supposed to do here? Leave it out? Fucking edge-lords everywhere. Before posting you might try a D&D search, it's not hard.
As for Larian, seems like development is going slow and they are focusing on details. I welcome the addition of classes to the game, and the details do sound cool but where is the game content? Is this game still one act? Seems like if they continue at this pace the game might get completed in 2029 or therabouts. Or is that a deliberate development decision. Just keep Act1 early access, and release the later acts only on release?
Can't believe they actually have Fighters and Clerics in the game, so passé.
And as far as I can recall the plan is to keep EA to Act 1 until release. I plan to replay it in a couple of months, should be interesting to see how it's all changed since the first month.
