Why i have no opinion on MH17

Well, its simple, i like facts, and so far there re none.  Well one, MH-17 crashed.

Thats it, thats all we know.

Sure it crashed over a war zone, for want of a word.
Imagine if it had crashed 30 mins sooner or later, totally different story.

Heres what might have happened. (with likelinesses)

  1. It just crashed out of random aviation bad luck. (possible)
    Hey, accidents happen.
  2. Russians shot it down from Russia. (no chance)
    Why? This makes no sense at all except to retards like McLame
  3. Donbas shot it down from within Donbass on purpose.  (Impossible)
    Again, for what purpose?
  4. Donbass shot it down from within Donbass my mistake (Possible)
    Maybe, i don’t know how those launcher things work.
  5. Ukraine shot it down by mistake. (possible)
    See above
  6. Ukraine shot it down on purpose, (possible)
    The bs coming out of Kiev has been beyond Baghdad Bob proportions.
  7. Something else (maybe)
    lets keep an open mind.My choices?  Either 1,4, or 6.  But we wont find out the truth for another ten years or so.
  8. Just thought of this;  Ukraine deliberately had traffic sent lower over the hot zone hoping something like this might happen
    Unfortunately Petro Pork is the kind of person who would think of that.

Beware of men with beards

China, fortunate to not have been beaten down by the politically correct police has issued some public safety posters that accuratly get their point across to help fight their terror problems.

I am sick of [sic]

[sic] is really beginning to piss me off.  What is its purpose?  Other than the user to point out ‘Ooh look at me, i noticed a typo that the original author didn’t.  This is me smugly pointing it out to you that i am superior in someway”

I mean, couldn’t you have just fixed the typo?  You knew what they meant, but no, you had to type 6 extra characters instead?  If its some olde worlde translation and you think your readers might not figure that out for themselves, either get better readers, or stop being a self important ass.

If you are direct quoting something with an odd spelling such as this example from the Wikipedia entry on sic,

“The House of Representatives shall chuse [sic] their Speaker …”

then fine.  But the most important thing to remember is [sic] totally destroys the flow of a sentence and spoils the reader experience.  But with the ever incorrect corrections of  auto correct, the brains ability to fix miplest wrods berfoe you raed them and the  increasing use of text like shortenings in product names encountered daily, i have to ask do we need [sic] outside of technical, reference or research papers?

Movie Review – Edge Of Tomorrow

I need to begin this with two disclaimers.  One, i hate most things tom cruise, generally his acting sucks and he is a nutball.  Two, i watched this during a torrential thunderstorm, on a laptop while no one could go outside and it was a crappy cam torrent, but not my computer and what else were we going to do?

The great thing about assuming all things tom cruise sucks is, once in a while it doesnt and you are pleasantly surprised. Scroll to the end to see what i think of TC movies.

 

This movie started out well, the premise was satisfactory, the characters were as expected but then a funny thing happened.  It got better.
To explain i will say Think of the time travel premise in Ground Hog Day where Bill Murray gets to know the towns folk, sometimes for poor reasons, sometimes noble ones and eventually improves both himself (seriously, how many days of piano lessons was that?) and the lives of people around him.
With the ability to keep doing do overs, and the movie makes it clear he does a lot but i am thinking IRL, if every day was a day, then at least year goes by for his character.

The movie is unexpectedly funny, interesting, and i did feel for the character as he dies endlessly, time and time again to advance a little further, maybe find out that he was going the wrong path, go back to a point there was a choice, try that a thousand times, etc etc.
Its actually quite a good movie, the plot was good, the lack of bad cgi was good, the green screen parts were not take you out of the movie obvious (again this was a cam copy so maybe they were).  In general i found my self enjoying the movie and characters entirely and amazed that i was doing so.

IMDB has it at 8.2 right now and i would say 8.5 for sure.

Well done Mr Cruise, you are on quite a roll.

Movie review -The Lego Movie

After watching this movie i almost penned this letter..

Dear Hollywood,
please pack up all your things and go home.  We don’t need you anymore.

Sincerely, the universe.

Its funny and a devastating critique on modern society all at the same time.  Plus joyfully entertaining.

9 1/2 out of 10

Now follows my favorite character, mostly because i had a lot of lego space as a kid.
