Damn I just love to be part of this saga. 🦍🦍🦍💎🚀🌌
Edit 1: I just upvoted every single comment because there was not a SINGLE negative one so far. Damn this community has become awesome ❤️
Edit 2: Wow nearly 9k likes and a lot of awards 🥰 I really appreciate it guys thank you. This just confirms my thoughts. A ton of silent apes are among us. This army is terrifying in a positive way. I would really shit my pants if I had to fight this new first-time-in-history-smooth-brain-enemy.
Edit 3: Just finished reading and upvoting all these nice comments. A lot of people did their first comment. I am honored. Also some mentioned they have friends /family who own GME shares and don't use reddit. I also have a few friends with GME positions, also non-reddit user. GME is in nearly every EU county the most traded stock (German 🇩🇪 ape here). When I think about it, and I am here since January, I might have underestimated the amount of apes worldwide 😳

Roland Emmerich said he didn't care much for Godzilla and, honestly, it shows
Throughout his movie they basically portray Godzilla as a regular lizard whose worst destruction almost seems accidental on his part. It feels like he wanted to make something like "Jurassic Park" (or "King Kong" ironically), movies that asked "what if people had to deal with regular ass dinosaurs and they attacked people?" or "what if a monkey was huge and had a crush on a human but otherwise acted like a regular ass monkey yet he attacked people?" but with his version ("what if people had to deal with a giant ass lizard who acts like a regular ass lizard but attacked...cars?") rather than a movie about a giant lizard-esque monster with superpowers.
The Baby Godzilla scene definitely made it clear he wanted to make Jurassic Park 3 rather than a Godzilla movie.
This whole chair debate is so ridiculous to me. If Zach didn't want to receive any of the chairs from the guys, then why did he even bring up the subject? And why does he need to continously say that he's a good guy? And continously say that AB is a bad guy?
Just a little rant, but Zachs arrogance and narcissism is really starting to annoy me.
let me begin by saying I listened to every word of it or attempted to. every episode beginning to end. I have listened to it and here's the thing. if it were literally any other dm it'd belong squarely in r/rpghorrorstories
our dm has so many npc that run the show and do all the heavy lifting that it's like he has a massive dmpc who's all powerful.
the players have no agency. even when they do break out of the set mold and destroy the office it doesn't matter at all. player action and players honestly weren't needed in the campaign as nothing they did they had a choice in.
the problematic issues with the centaurs. of course gotta throw in some issues.
legitimately this campaign bored me to the point where I was almost tuning out. nothing ever happened and when they did fight it was over like nothing. even the final fight they just decimated the opponents no struggle no life or death worry. and if there was then don't worry a npc will save the day.
one of these issues is bad enough but all of them. it's difficult because I wanted to enjoy this one I liked the premise but the execution just hurt. I kept listening out of habit more than anything. and I hate how he treated his brothers. imagine going from Griffin who is fairly yes and to travis who basically embodied no but.
I tried to enjoy it but honestly it seems like most episodes nothing of consequence happened. and that when the players had a fun idea usually nothing came from it. I feel so bad for Clint but also all the other boys just because honestly they didn't deserve that. let's hope the next one is better.
I just finished a book I've looked forward to for several months (The Crown of Gilded Bones by Jennifer Armentrout). I was under the impression that it was book 3 of a trilogy, because this author has written numerous series, most of which are trilogies, and Amazon has it listed as "Book 3 of 3". It turns out this is book 3 of 3 written so far, because there are going to be 6 books. I'm wondering if that was the original plan. I doubt it because while I do enjoy the books, the second 2 definitely have a fair amount of filler with unremarkable scenes and repeated, predictable interactions between characters. This book could easily lose 150 pages. This is not a new phenomenon. The other series that immediately come to mind are the Outlander series, in which each book gets less relevant as they go along, The Clan of the Cave Bear series, and quite possibly the Name of the Wind series (if it gets finished at all). I'm sure I'm forgetting others. It seems like once a book or author gets moderately popular the series start to get unnecessarily longer. I'm not saying that I don't like where the stories go, it's that they begin to take very circuitous routes to get there, where the middle 70% of the books are irrelevant to the story arcs as a whole. I'll still read them, to a point, but I do lose some respect for that author. Do they think readers don't notice? I guess it doesn't matter, because I'm sure they do make more money this way, but it does make me less likely to begin a new series by the same author.
I was reminded of this story last night and had to share. This was over 20 years ago. One night I was sat a group of young people. They were ordering alcoholic drinks so I went down the line checking ID's.
I get to one young lady and she orders a bellini. Her license is an out of state ID (CA) and shows her as 26 years old. I'm looking at her face and I'm 99.9% sure this isn't her ID. The photo looks like her... a little, but I can tell the woman in the photo is older than this child sitting in front of me. Then I noticed the address on the license and OMG, I recognized it.
Me: So you're from SOCA, huh? What a coincidence, I am too. This is really your ID? What's the address on it?
The girl reaches for the ID, which I'm still holding. I pull back so she can't grab it.
Obviously underage girl, annoyed: I live in Hollywood.
Me: And the address?
Obviously underage girl: Uh, I haven't lived there long, I'm bad at remembering the exact street.
Me: Hmm...Well, just so you know, the address on this ID is 2301 N Highland Ave.
Obviously underage girl: Right! That's it! Sorry, I just haven't memorized it yet.
Me: This isn't your ID. It's fake.
The entire table looks scandalized. Obviously underage girl asks what proof I have. She's watching the ID in my hand, she clearly wants it back.
I pull out my wallet, which has my CA ID. I hadn't gotten a new license since moving so I put hers and mine side by side to compare. Right away I can see little differences in hers from mine, a real CA drivers license. I held up my license so the table could see it.
Me: As I said, I'm from CA. Only been here a few months. When I lived there, I used to go to the Hollywood Bowl all the time to see shows. Parking sucks but it's a great venue. Have you ever been?
Obviously underage girl: No. And?
Me: The address on your license IS the Hollywood Bowl.
Obviously underage girl: What!? No, I live in a house nearby.
Me: Then why does your ID have the actual address of the Hollywood Bowl? Plus, the woman in this photo looks like she has ten years on you. This card material feels thinner too...
Obviously underage girl comes clean: Ok, you're right. We were just playing to see if you'd notice. (She fake laughs) I had it made as a joke. We wanted to see if you'd catch it!! (more fake laughing) Forget the bellini, I'll have a coke. I'd like that back please. It's just a joke.
Me: It's not a joke to order alcohol when you're underage. You should have picked an actu... keep reading on reddit ➡
And I'm not talking "Kiefer Sutherland in Phone Booth" kinda phoned-in. I mean an acting performance that's not necessarily terrible, but one where the actor or actress clearly didn't give a shit, gave the minimum required effort, and was just there to get a paycheck.
Also, your answer can't be Bruce Willis in almost anything he's done in the past twenty (thirty?) years. That's way too easy.
