  1. [MOVED TO VOTE] Re: [Amendment] Section III, Article I - no support, no merit

    As the survivor of half a dozen meritless and doomed to fail ostrakons based upon butthurt, I think the current system works.
  2. Re: The Rings of Power. Lord of the Rings. TV Show.

    I commend anyone bored enough in their personal lives to find this dumpster fire of a series entertaining. I wanted so badly for this show to be good, but I have taken :wub: more interesting than the...

    Re: Pronouns and References

    Pronouns and references: the modern theory that solipsism is the dominant and most important component of our culture. So boring and intellectually bankrupt.

    It is an awful show. Irredeemably bad, for so many reasons. Amazon somehow managed to spend a billion dollars creating an absolute, literal :wub: show.

  9. Re: The Rings of Power. Lord of the Rings. TV Show.

    Total disaster of a show. The acting was awful, the dialogue was cringe inducing. Really just a master class in how to waste 1bil.

    So your point is since Jackson wasn't 1000% true to the books we should just accept Galadriel being totally re-written as a character and the addition of so many non-canon characters of various and...
