I can't believe I'm going to do this but... I just must. Lol.

I am interested in the game, too.  I'm just confused by the logic of their design decisions, and that confusion causes both my wallet and anus to tighten.

... that's jibber-y... It's something along the lines of...

Curse the "illegitimate" child of Christophe's she-dog. :P

I guess you had to be there... or be Christophe... or be his "dog"... or maybe its child... I'm so confused. XD  :stars:

Right now I can't have any caffeine or alcohol or citrus juice.

Which means I'm basically down to drinking Shirley Temples for a vice. :(

On the Star Wars movies...

I recently rewatched all 6 films. After 4 and 5, I wanted more! After 1, 2 and 3, I just wanted to stop.

Debating and analyzing is all well and good, but what's the point in stretching out a childish, inane argument like the one this thread degenerated into? :P

Well, see, I'm not sure on this point. There was an actually interesting point/discussion to be had (though off the original topic of the thread, so I didn't follow it). Why are there humans in every story we tell? If there aren't humans, there are usually anthropomorphized characters, etc. Even discussing the implications of the Light/Dark-side duality in comparison to a good/evil duality is somewhat more interesting than sitting around talking about how cool lightsabers are. :P

So, my point is that it is possible to have interesting, intellectually stimulating conversation on points that seem arbitrary or silly and that running around calling every analysis of something you find unanalyzable (because you consider it silly or arbitrary from the outset and therefore unworthy of proper intelligent analysis) stymies actual productive conversation. To that end, Neonivek has a valid complaint: he is interested in the discussion, but people keep chiming in not only to not contribute but also to detract by sharing their opinion that the conversation is silly, inane, childish, or pointless.

Here's the thing: if you don't reduce either intellectual or moral arguments or messages from media, then you are going through life with your brain lodged firmly in the off-position. You have the choice of when to turn it on or leave it off. So, you don't want to analyze Star Wars? Don't. Hopefully, you do analyze or consider the morality or logic underpinning at least some of what you consume. Now, if you don't want to do that for anything ever, I highly recommend that you get some intellectual depth... that or continue to be a drain on society. (Ok, I've slipped into using "you" for generic third person... I'm too lazy to change it now.) Telling other people their conversations are silly, inane, childish, or pointless is a way of trying to deny them intellectual curiosity, and if nothing else, unless they've done that to you, it is simply unfair. You think it's silly. You don't contribute. ...We're on the bloody TSL-forums, for Pete's sake--precisely how many times did some troll come along to say "you're all wasting your time, this is silly, this game will never happen"? Honestly. ::)

It is rife with spelling and grammar errors, but I did that on purpose.

Considering that Deloria is sitting next to me... laughing uncontrollably... still... like 5 minutes after first reading it.... this post goes here now. XD

Also, is esplode the British spelling of asplode?

Well, it's how Deloria and I spell it. Sadly, I don't think the Oxford English dictionary has it listed. :P

What's wrong with those editors?! We should file a complaint!

I suppose next you're going to tell me they don't have lulz or lolcats, either. :P

Nope and nope. :P

To be fair, the OED is such a massive undertaking (every word in the English language plus the etymological history for EVERY SINGLE ONE) that there are bits that haven't been updated since the 1930s. They're currently working through it (again! This is like the second time they've had to do this) and will eventually have all sections up to date(ish), but it's going to take a few more years. XD
