  1. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    What does that have to do with what I said?



    I'm not referring to anyone in particular. It's a hypothetical.

    Again, I'm not sure what you are referring to.
  2. Re: ‘No force can stop China’: Beijing shows off HYPERSONIC missiles & STEALTH drones at 70th National Day parade

    I wouldn't risk a carrier group over Taiwan. The people of Taiwan themselves are split over what the relationship with PRC should look like. The sensible thing is to allow the relationship to develop...

    Re: Creation of the Senator Class Proposal

    Oppose. What this proposal needs is a Caesar class where one man shall be elected to unilaterally rule the CYRIA. The current system is an ineffective democratic mess and this proposal does not...
  4. Re: Seriously... What's wrong with film critics?!

    Neither of those things happened. What I did was point out the hypocrisy in your rhetoric.

    As you said, you're asking for art to be criticized regardless of politics. Yet in this very thread, you,...

    Huh
  8. Re: Seriously... What's wrong with film critics?!

    I don't think you see the irony.
  9. Re: Seriously... What's wrong with film critics?!

    I'll be more than happy to share my opinion on any film and seeing how they diverge from professional critics. In fact, maybe it would be a fun exercise. Citizen Kane, a boring black and white movie...
  10. Re: Seriously... What's wrong with film critics?!

    Umm, yes it does. In an aggregation system that's binary, you are going to get extreme variance like this. So yes, good job highlighting the binary nature of Rotten Tomatoes, but I don't know how you...
  11. Re: Seriously... What's wrong with film critics?!

    I don't think a % rating from a review aggregator determines film ranking in an objective way. Otherwise all future film makers should be required to study Toy Story for at least half of their...
  12. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    If you think the justice system is the ultimate arbiter of human morality, I'd urge you to take a look at all the times the justice system got it wrong. Moreover, the way you've lived your life, is...
  13. Re: Seriously... What's wrong with film critics?!

    Yet declaring a movie "lackluster" and undeserving of near universal critical praise is somehow not smug at all.
  14. Re: Seriously... What's wrong with film critics?!

    You know, it's really amusing to see people complain about the SJW echo chamber by creating their own echo chamber.
  15. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    Sure, but FDR came from a wealthy family, as was Kennedy, and Bush, etc. Yet the Presidents who came from "humble" beginnings are no better. Certainly you have Obama and Johnson, but you also have...
  16. Re: US House Speaker Announces Formal Impeachment Inquiry

    The irony and Trump's lack of self-awareness here is delicious. Seeing Trump supporters regurgitate it is hilarious. I really don't know who to laugh at more, Trump, or the people who swore fealty to...
  17. Re: ‘No force can stop China’: Beijing shows off HYPERSONIC missiles & STEALTH drones at 70th National Day parade

    Debt-peonage is part of the design. When China is holding meetings on a new security arrangement in the Pacific and Indian ocean, do you really think debt leverage is a weakness in these...
  18. Re: ‘No force can stop China’: Beijing shows off HYPERSONIC missiles & STEALTH drones at 70th National Day parade

    Many of your points are true. However, India is unlikely to pass China in GDP, at least not by 2050, which is a benchmark date for many planners and economists. Also, while many countries around...

    Re: ISIL War in Iraq and Syria II

    You're assuming Europe has to sell weapons to anyone outside of Europe. It doesn't. Greed is what drives arms sales, not necessity.
  20. Re: What if the world treated the U.S. like a rogue state?

    It took some 40+ years to get ten supercarrier Nimitz supercarriers built. That's after decades of operating and building carriers. I highly doubt China can replicate such a long history in a mere 20...

    Re: ISIL War in Iraq and Syria II

    I'm not sure what you're asking. I'm saying EU countries should stop exporting weapons to Turkey and Saudi Arabia.
  22. Poll: Re: USA Democratic party 2020 candidates and primaries thread

    On the contrary, I'd argue its about time we stop holding our leaders to some higher, moral plane. In my opinion, we have to elect our leaders on their merits and their ideas. I don't really care if...

    Re: ISIL War in Iraq and Syria II

    Numerous EU countries have stopped export of weapons to Turkey. They should really do the same to Saudi Arabia and UAE.

    Your penchant for misrepresentation is amazing, really.
  25. Re: what improvements should be made in the next generation nuclear power plants?

    It's a lot easier, politically, to structure a one time massive capital expenditure, than it is to approve sustain spending over a long period of time. For example, if you look at any fighter...
  26. Re: what improvements should be made in the next generation nuclear power plants?

    And I'm telling you that high capital costs are a benefit. The issue with solar is that it'll require considerable change in the way we manage the power grid. More than that, it's really a...

    Re: Total War: Warhammer II announced

    Rather than 4 distinct Chaos "races", it'll likely be a mechanic. I.E. a Chaos general can be aligned to a Chaos god through customization (skill points) which will grant him access to unique units...
  28. Re: Total War Saga: TROY announced! (trailer, screens & campaign map video)

    So are you talking about the future, or is there a specific point or trend you wan to emphasize that made Total War not quite Total War anymore?

    I can already guarantee you, without reading it, that the report doesn't say that.

  33. Re: what improvements should be made in the next generation nuclear power plants?

    This is irrelevant. Regulating dual use technology doesn't stop it from being dual use. And it's terrible. It takes a long time to develop nuclear power. Your chances of getting caught are...
  34. Re: Trump's U-Turns and whether they are U-turns, blunders or simply "changing with the times"

    That's because the new normal is the POTUS refusing to be accountable to anybody for any reason. This entire presidency has been :wub: insane.
  35. Re: what improvements should be made in the next generation nuclear power plants?

    I'm not sure why you're "disagreeing" here. Nothing you've said here contradicts what I've said. The issue isn't that current nuclear reactors can be used to make weapons-grade uranium, but that...

  37. Re: what improvements should be made in the next generation nuclear power plants?

    If nuclear weapons were so easy to hide, we would've already seen it. If N. Korea and Iran cannot effectively hide their nuclear programs, then most other states can't. Chemical weapons are also...
  38. Re: what improvements should be made in the next generation nuclear power plants?

    Current nuclear technology uses fuel that could be weaponized into weapons. That's by design and it dates back to the Manhattan project. At least from what I've read. Thorium based nuclear reactors,...
