random controversy

Post by Ironman » Thu Nov 08, 2012 3:03 pm

Ok, after seeing that, I had to actually make it. So here it is. You can actually post random controversy here, but I wouldn't recommend it. I would consider this the thread that should never be used. However it is here nonetheless. So it is possible to post stuff in here, but hey gamma ray bursts, and asteroid impacts are possible too. That doesn't mean anyone actually wants it to happen. Some people have the urge to stir it up though.

Well we had a thread "Random Controversey Crap" so I'd like to bitch and moan about the horrible moderators here who don't know what's going on.

I say cut their pay in half.

Well, you could divide it by any number and get the same result. It would be more interesting to divide 2 by my pay.

Disney acquiring Lucas Films is a good thing. First George Lucas is donating the $4 billion+ that he got from the sale to a charity that focuses on education. Disney has announced they will make an episode 7. I'm not sure how that is going to work, but it will probably be a good movie, or at least a halfway decent one I will like.

I don't think Disney can mess up Star Wars any worse than Lucas himself. Meanwhile, I'm hoping Disney makes the original, theatrical versions of the first three films available on DVD and Blue Ray.

My opinion is that anybody who even brings it up should be forever banished from these forums.

Sorry, nothing personal, but some things you don't mess with, you don't joke about messing with them, and you don't talk about messing with them.

Ok. ok. I'm ok now. Deep breaths, deep breaths...

Well ok, if Disney makes a Star Wars movie, how much worse can they make it than those awful 3 prequels.

can't wait for the tv pilot season to deliver something tailored for your interests, Oscar: a reality mmama format - the mixed musical and martial arts program, combining the best of youthful performers celebrating great bands with no holds barred violences to establish who gets the solos.
