I stopped watching (And caring) after they killed the 1 female character that I cared about (the farm girl)

That's funny. I also stopped watching at the exact same time. It wasn't the fact that they killed the character - it was how they did it. It felt totally random and unnecessary. I realized at that point that the writers were more concerned with shock-value than anything else, and decided I didn't need the narrative abuse.

And seeing how later seasons turned out, that seemed to be exactly what was going on here, shock value through the roof but no plot coherence.

Narrative abuse? I call it lazy script-writing. And yes, GOT season 7 is not immune to that either, felt way to rushed and half-assed...

Not dead. He was bit by a 'Whisperer'(read the comics). It's all hype to save the franchise.

The new firefox is my daily driver.

The Walking Dead petition will have as much effect as the petition i created asking Disney to remake the latest SW:TLJ and make it a BETTER movie.

The walking dead jumped the shark years ago when they used full-auto instead of single fire considering they live in an ammunition scarce universe.

At this point the writers are just throwing shit at the wall and seeing what sticks.

I stopped watching (And caring) after they killed the 1 female character that I cared about (the farm girl), and after briefly watching s7 i don't regret that, they went 100% on violence but 0% on coherent storytelling and logic.

And yes, if they killed Aya in GoT I would have a hard time, but at least in GoT I like a lot more than 1 character.

FF Quantum is my browser of choice as well.

I switched back from Chrome recently too. Loving it so far.

For users of the Tree Style Tabs add-on, add the following bit of code to the "%AppData%\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile name>\chrome\userChrome.css" file (create the file and the chrome directory if they are not there) to hide the redundant tabs at the top, and hide the "tree style tabs" header on the left side of the screen, in order to clean things up a bit:

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");
#TabsToolbar {
visibility: collapse !important;
}
#sidebar-header { display: none; }

So how are those comics awesome? Don't see it.

Also, the extra and hidden charges are going to get worse, with the rollback of the rules of disclosing all that... because it's too "onerous" for the ISPs.

How high can Bitcoin go before the fall? It will continue to be interesting to watch even after it does fall.  
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

"Nullity's Law"
There's an easy and fool-proof way to tell if anything related conservative/right-wing/Republican politics is true or not. If anyone calls it "fake news", you can be sure it's the solid truth
