the original Star Wars is a mishmash of pop-culture and rehashed ideas of other series - much like an unintentional sci-fi version of "pulp fiction"

personally once I learned about it, I bristled at how much Lucas stole, considering how much more respect I had for the originals he derived material from... so I never liked the original series that much either - except seeing it along with the sequels in the theater as a 4 year old kid, which I think is probably the appropriate age-range for Star Wars material in general

While the original 1977 Star Wars movie and its cliffhanger sequel is definitely a kind of cinematic "lightning in a bottle" - all the later movies seem more aligned to merchandising for action figures and toys and ewok dolls and so forth... exactly in the same way Pokemon cartoons came about.

The original star wars formula success was down to how it used those universal and timeless "monomyth" ideas by recycling more modern usages like Kurosawa and Lensman and spaghetti westerns and all that stuff. But you can only count on that formula for so long - as its a product of another era - namely the 80s, which it typifies in so many ways.

But it seems that lately Hollywood cant come up with anything original, so they want to recapture all that original spectacle and majesty of the 80s sci-fi... like Terminator, Star Wars, Dune, and so forth and so on with all the reboots... and most of the time they are failing so horribly - (except Dune which Ive heard isnt bad)

Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down?

Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn?

Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee?

Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever?

Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?

Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants?

Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears?

Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more.

Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him?

None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me?

Who hath prevented me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine.

I will not conceal his parts, nor his power, nor his comely proportion.

Who can discover the face of his garment? or who can come to him with his double bridle?

Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about.

His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal.

One is so near to another, that no air can come between them.

They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be sundered.

By his sneezings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.

Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out.

Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron.

His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth.

In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him.

The flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved.

His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone.

When he raiseth up himself, the mighty are afraid: by reason of breakings they purify themselves.

The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold: the spear, the dart, nor the habergeon.

He esteemeth iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood.

The arrow cannot make him flee: slingstones are turned with him into stubble.

Darts are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the shaking of a spear.

Sharp stones are under him: he spreadeth sharp pointed things upon the mire.

He maketh the deep to boil like a pot: he maketh the sea like a pot of ointment.

He maketh a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be hoary.

Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear.

He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride.

Also significant in the Bacon-Shakespeare-Rosicrucian mystery are the relative locations of Stratford-upon-Avon and Gorhambury, St Albans, within the landscape zodiac of Britain in respect of the celestial phenomena associated with and leading up to 1604—a 3rd-magnitude nova in Cygnus that was first sighted in 1600, unusual planetary conjunctions during 1603-4 and a 1st-magnitude supernova in Ophiuchus in 1604, the latter of which marked the metaphorical opening of the Rosicrucian tomb of Fra CRC and the start of making public the Rosicrucian work that had hitherto been prepared in secret. The “new stars” in Cygnus and Ophiuchus are especially noted in the symbolic illustration depicting the Invisible College of the Rosicrucian Fraternity in Theophilus Schweighardt’s book, Speculum Sophicum Rhodo-stauroticum, published in 1618.

Astronomers of the time (including Kepler) were concerned with observing the conjunction of Mars and Jupiter, which they saw in terms of an auspicious conjunction, linked in their minds to the Star of Bethlehem. However, cloudy weather prevented Kepler from making any celestial observations. Nevertheless, his fellow astronomers Wilhelm Fabry, Michael Maestlin and Helisaeus Roeslin were able to make observations on 9th October, but did not record the supernova. The first recorded observation in Europe was by Lodovico delle Colombe in northern Italy on 9th October 1604. Kepler was only able to begin his observations on 17th October while working at the imperial court in Prague for Emperor Rudolf II. The supernova was subsequently named after him, even though he was not its first observer, as his observations tracked the object for an entire year. These observations were described in his book De Stella nova in pede Serpentarii ("On the new star in Ophiuchus's foot", Prague 1606).

I reaIly want to play Deathloop, but I'm waiting for a patch to fix the stuttering issue. Which, just to clarify, apparently has nothing to do with Denuvo (and I'm no fan).

If people are going to review-bomb a game, the very least they can do is wait for the facts. All games have some issues at launch, just wait a couple weeks for a bugfix.

after watching some more videos i didnt realize how similar it actually is to Dishonored

also IIRC the sequel had horrible problems with stuttering and performance issues - perhaps its the same engine or an iteration, and they are having similar issues as before as well

As a kid of the late 80's/early 90s, it was either LSL or shareware strip poker. I did always find it interesting that the company that made King's Quest also made the LSL series.
i was a big sierra fan... i played lots of games from many series: space quest, kings quest, heros quest, along with lsl

btw - heros quest 2 is still one of the most memorable gaming experiences ive had, very good times with that one

the very oldest games had maybe a handful of words of explicit language and a pixellated boob image or two, in particular scenes here and there - but mostly its tons of suggestive humor and innuendo, because its played more for laughs than being anything close to porn or something like that... i never played any of the later ones... only the ones with the text parser input

this game is a whole other thing, and i have no clue but id imagine this is adding softcore porn type content to cater to the porn game market... but again thats just a wild guess...

These are supposed to be 'fans' ?
technically, its short for "fanatic" - so maybe they are just living up to it, for real

honestly the culture of fans and so forth in general has become more strange to me lately, perhaps its something to do with the trump cult and all the special feelings it unlocked for so many people

its like all these new slang words the kids are using... they have one called "simp" - which i havent bothered to research beyond seeing it in use, but through context i have come to understand is another word for "fan" - and im assuming, is derived from the term "simper" intransitive verb : to smile in a silly, affected, or ingratiating manner - but i have no clue and definitely dont care

its always been about varying degrees of obsession - it just seems more amplified lately to me, although i tend to think its probably more about my own aging process rather than any huge changes in popular culture ... small changes are inevitable, especially along ongoing trends with lots of momentum

The Ainu, the indigenous inhabitants of Hokkaido, knew the Hokkaido wolf as the high-ranking god Horkew Kamuy. In Hokkaido’s Tokachi and Hidaka regions, there flourished versions of a myth about a white wolf that mated with a goddess, or sometimes a Japanese court lady, and the offspring from this union became the ancestors of the Ainu people. Several regional versions of this origin myth exist, and some feature a white dog rather than a white wolf. The difference between wolves and dogs appears to have been less important to the Ainu, since both wolves and dogs inhabited much the same space in their classifying imagination. One version of this myth from Shizunai, in the Hidaka region, explains that the god of the mountain Poroshiri-dake, Retaruseta Kamuy (the white-wolf god), could not find a suitable mate, even though he searched the entire island. So Retaruseta Kamuy summoned his divine powers, seeing all the way to lands across the seas, and in time spotted a mate in a distant country. Again drawing on his divine powers, he coerced the woman to get in a small boat, cross the seas, and once on the island become his wife. From this union, it is said, the Ainu people were born.

The Constant of Nineveh correlates to the revolution of all the bodies of the solar system, including satellites.

It was first found on a clay Sumerian tablet with cuneiform found in the library of the Assyrian tyrant Ashurbanipal (669-626 BC).

Maurice G. Chatelain was the one who discovered the Constant of Ninevah to be in seconds. He calculated it to be 2,268 million days of 86,400 seconds each or 6.2 million years.

Chatelain writes, “Every period of revolution or conjunction of all the solar system bodies calculated by the Constant of Nineveh corresponded exactly down to several decimal points with the values given in the modern tables of United States astronomers… I have not been able to find even a single period of revolution or conjunction of a solar system planet or satellite that would not be an exact fraction down to the fourth decimal point of the Great Constant of the Solar System.”

  • The Radius of the Moon is 1,080 miles = 3 x 360.
  • The diameter of the Moon is 2,160 miles = 6 x 360 = 18 x 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5.
  • The Radius of Earth is 3,960 miles = 11 x 360 = 33 x 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5.
  • The Radius of Earth + Radius of Moon is 5,040 miles = 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 x 6 x 7 = 7 x 8 x 9 x 10.
  • The Diameter of Earth is 7,920 miles = 8 x 9 x 10 x 11.
  • There are 5,280 feet in a mile = (10 x 11 x 12 x 13) – (9 x 10 x 11 x 12).
  • From the surface of the Earth, the Sun and Moon appear to be the same size.
  • The size of the Moon compared to the Earth is 3:11 (99.9%).
  • If you pull the Moon down to touch the Earth, then draw a circle around the Earth through the center of the Moon - it will have a circumference equal to the perimeter of a square enclosing the Earth.
  • The Earth-Moon proportion is also precisely invoked by our two planetary neighbors, Venus and Mars – The closest:farthest distance ratio that each experiences of the other is 3:11. We orbit between them.
  • The Moon orbits the Earth every 27.3 days, which is also the average rotation of a sunspot.
