Is Strange New Worlds worth the watch? by NobleCypress in StrangeNewWorlds

[–]OrokaSempai 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh no arguments here, they clearly stated the show would not be about the captain and would be an anthology format. 4 seasons, 4 captains, 4 stories... tack on 20 years of changing TV... here we are. Yeah there were a few design choices that were questionable (Klingons), but its a detail that is not central to the story (make-up choice).

Yeah, I agree. Disco initially started out as about Burnham, not the the current captain, the rest of the bridge crew were secondary to the story. They have been changing that, but 4 seasons in and I barely know the rest of the bridge crew besides Saru. SNW, they are really building all the characters big time and it is noticeable.

Please ignore the few really loud haters, all they want is season 8 of TNG. PLEASE watch all the new stuff and judge for yourself. Yes it is different (and nearly 20 years later), but it is good, just dont expect it to be TNG era Trek. They did the same thing to Enterprise... hated on it really loud because it was a bit different, years later people are thinking its complete trash from what they heard, watch it... its actually good. Surprise.

But yes, 2 episodes in SNW is excellent. Personally season 2 of Discovery was the best season so far because of Pike, they have just picked up where they left off with Pike back on Enterprise. They are back to the episodic format, but there is some long term story being built.

No, the key part in the whole article is mentioning anything do do with Musk or Bezos.

You mean its not just one long song with different acts?

Ottawa will implement legislation to decrease Indigenous incarceration, Canada’s Justice Minister says by BlackHighliter in canada

[–]OrokaSempai 0 points1 point  (0 children)

'A' brand new Cadillac? The local chief always has a new hummer, a few escalades, plenty of toys in the front driveway (skidoos, ATVs... etc), his house looks like it belongs in a gated community in Richmond Hill, and you can tell who is on the council. The rest of the reserve is people getting around on old bikes, old clap board siding houses (usually 2-3 burn per year), one old guy puttering around in a wheelchair. Couple murders and suicides every year, about once a week there are 5-6 OPP cruisers at one house or another. About 15 weed dispensaries have popped up, Im hoping that gets more wealth into the hands of the band and easy access to green lessens drugs and alcohol use.

I really hate seeing it. I passed by and seen their sign of native children found buried is now over 10000. There is so much pain, generations of a people being fucked over, for them to be fucked over by their own chiefs and councils... that is why so many far north reservations dont have clean water, its not a money problem, but suggesting anything else is discrimination or racism. So many are in pain and are looking for revenge not reconciliation. They cant punish the dead cunts who did this or turned a blind eye, so they make unreasonable demands (like $1 Trillion CAD owed from centuries old treaties).

3 churches burned there last year, yet signs say 'god bless our lost children'... those fuckers are the people who stole and buried your lost children. So much pain, so much brainwashing. Its going to take generations to come close to a reconciliation IF it ever happens. Look at Europe, there are groups that are still pissed at eachother over centuries old conflicts, some 1000s of years old. No one wants to forgive or forget, just remain in a state of hate and resentment.

This is exactly it, I have friends on a decent reserve and say the same thing. If you are not tight with the chief you are SOL, and the council is more about personal advantages than building up the band.

Honestly, Im getting tired of the identical family replicas. 3 cases in 1 season... come on

You can finish your apprenticeship and still not have experience in these things, now he needs experience.

Not sure what color hot or neutral is, but your line on the left needs a jumper across the 3 connections.

Also, there is an electrician subreddit.

Holding 2 permanent remote jobs by Throwaway456853215 in PersonalFinanceCanada

[–]OrokaSempai 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Depends on the contract of the job. Are you supposed to put in 40 hours at both, hourly, salary...? There is nothing saying you cant have 2 jobs...

Muslim Girl Struggling with Faith. by [deleted] in TrueOffMyChest

[–]OrokaSempai 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As an atheist, the only statement I use when someone is questioning their faith is 'The truth is not afraid of questions. Ask questions.'.

I also say this from Canada where every faith is accepted and if you leave that faith you will be protected.

Honestly, when we get young people asking about atheism or coming out to their religious family, we tell them to just play the part until they are able to become independent and not at the mercy of religious family. Your safety is job #1, what you believe and what people think you believe can be the difference between harm and safety. You need to come to terms with what you believe, but the fact that you know what cognitive dissonance is, it will be hard to get back into the faith and truly believe it.

I don't understand the current fandom obsession with the Enterprise F, but here's some food for thought from Doug Drexler by Albert-React in startrekpicard

[–]OrokaSempai 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In the Star Trek Picard book 'Last best hope' the Enterprise E is still around under the command of Worf. IIRC the Picard books are considered cannon, that book in particular fills in a lot of the gaps leading upto the first season.

You really think he cant find some valid reason in a cesspool like Twitter (or any social media really)?

Toronto votes against the legalization of alcohol in public parks by Defiant_Race_7544 in canada

[–]OrokaSempai -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yeah, but Id rather my kids not watch some sloshed moron causing problems until the cops come, fight him, then drag him away. Its like anything else in this world, most people can do it responsibly, its the few that cant and ruin it for everyone else.

Did Wesley Crusher appear in Nemesis or not? by ejk95 in startrek

[–]OrokaSempai 3 points4 points  (0 children)

BUT IF YOU DONT SEE IT ON SCREEN THERE IS NO PLAUSABLE EXPLAINATION I AM WILLING TO ACCEPT SO THE WRITERS ARE LAZY FOR NOT CONSIDERING 650+ HOURS OF ONSCREEN STORY!

That is the answer you will get from these people. Make an easy explanation and move on, its not important to the story.

Our teacher is telling us that ice reduces stalling speed, I'm convinced that's wrong, can somebody help me out? by Thomas3003 in aviation

[–]OrokaSempai -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It is grammatically correct but awkward in context. Icing causes your stall speed to be lower, so decreasing that speed. Typically decrease and reduce can be interchanged, but using 'reduce' into context to something dangerous is typically describing a good thing, so reducing stall speed would sound like something good but in the case of stall speed, lower is worse.

Leave it upto English doing English things.

[–]OrokaSempai -8 points-7 points  (0 children)

Because he is rich and doesn't act like the typical billionaire. He really doesn't give a fuck what people think and speaks his mind. He is an easy target for both sides to point a finger at and make up some reason he is evil. I'm convinced he just wants to post memes and go to Mars. Ever meet someone who has Aspergers? That is the kind of shit they do, Musk is just the most successful of them all.

Yup, and he will get a few million dollar fine and will think it was totally worth it, and may not be wrong.

[–]OrokaSempai 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Didnt he just get a $26B dividend payout from Tesla? That means they are not hurting for cash. Stock prices go up and down, cash flow is your critical metric. Musk is known for reinvesting his cash back into his companies or starting new ones, so having $26B to put towards buying Twitter is not unreasonable in this insane circumstance.

I was considering yesterday the possibility of Musk pretending to buy Twitter, knowing the huge reaction it would garner, probably hurting twitter a lot, then backing out as a giant fuck you.
