It's not even 11 am yet and it's already 33 degrees Celsius (91,4 F).  :desert:

Could you wrap some of that up, in a well insulated package, and send it over please, Silver.

Not too much, say about 26C worth?

I doubt Trump has read 1984 though, he doesn't seem like much of a literary buff.

Media / Re: Talk About Star Wars With All the Spoilers You Want
« Last post by xSilverPhinx on Today at 12:58:04 PM »

I'm a little disappointed that Rey's parents have no larger part in the story. If what Ren said was true, they sold her off for drinking money when she was little. It would have been interesting if she didn't have parents, and was some sort of physical manifestation of the Force (much like fatherless Anakin was?), brought to fulfill a prophecy and bring balance...again. I need someone to explain how she's so sensitive to the Force with Star Wars universe plausibility!   :no idea:
Throwing my 0.02$ in on this subject, I call bullshit on Kylo's claim that they were nobody. If we recall the force vision Ray had in Episode 7, where a young Ray is yelling at a ship while it's leaving, this does not match up with Kylo's story.
My personal pet theory regarding Ray's parentage would be something along the way of her being the offspring of one or more of Luke's original students. This would explain why she has such an aptitude for the Force, and why she was hidden away on Jakku after the purge.
Plus it would make for an interesting conversation between Ray and the Force Ghost of Luke. Because we know we haven't seen the last of him.

Yeah, I'm starting to remember that scene with the ship now.  :chin:

Perhaps the vision Kylo Ren had was given to him by Snoke for some reason (he said he was responsible for connecting their minds), though what that reason could be eludes me. Rey went into the dark hole looking for answers about her parents, giving someone a vision with an answer seems a little counter-productive if you want to bring someone to the dark side of the force. I didn't notice any indication that Rey knew the answer was fabricated.

This is getting more and more like a satirical and farcical novel or movie every week.

Yes, an Orwellian pastiche.
The trouble is it's real.

That 'cos we don't have one called "Religious propaganda crap" ?
No. It's a film. I can't comment on the content. And won't be wasting my time watching it.

I want to watch that about as much as I want a snowball to the dangly bits.

Is that Viking foreplay?

Hey, whatever floats your Skuldelev, as long as you don't dock it in my harbor.
