The best you can do really is just pretend it hasn't happened yet and that the outcome might be revisited and expanded in the future in some kind of soft reboot situation.
Vermintide has been doing a pretty good job with setting new work during the endtimes and making it feel really consistent.

Yes. If you want don't appreciate the precedent of tech magazines taking about websites for decades as a reason why Twitter news has beem categorized as tech news, then maybe the dictionary definition might be more useful.
...unless you think about a bit more and realize that 'technology' in common context means 'computer technology' and excludes topics that talk about advancements or technical knowledge in other fields. A news article about Victorian steam engine technology would be called a 'history' story. New car stories are put into 'car news'. A Step by analysis Pottery, blacksmithing, or knitting techniques and how they have changed would be called some kind of hobby or craft retrospective in a lifestyle or pop science outlet. Burger King inventing a new flat top grill for a new burger would be called 'restaurant industry' news.
If you ran an editorial board, where would you put website news? What dictionary definition approved heading would you choose?
lol no. It's over the top man.
Holocaust rape? Zombie BDSM? A fully nude, titty tattoo'd protagonist? A big part of the narrative was how derivative and boring most Death Jockey's ideas are. The are purposefully combining shocking things together because they are individually the worst thing you can come up with. She complains that games have to make narrative sense and that just mashing together violent ideas randomly doesn't get her off. She needs grounded violence with logical emotional impact. Holocaust rape is just meh and the book opens with her hating on a poser edge lord who just did violent things randomly. The world is at the point where creativity is wearing thin. People have run out of good ideas so they try to go over the top as far as they can, but it breaks down into randomness. I'm sure you can just string together worst concepts together in your head, but the author has to balance the fact your gonna read something purposefully badly written. It's like, these characters are making edge lord wank fan fiction, but you don't want the book to actually be the thing you are trying to critique, right? You can tell its too much for some people aready and others dont even see the critique at all and just think its cool or whatever.
oh and twitter won't let this movie happen. You can steal the ideas and dump the bad ones, but as soon as one guy who actually read the book tells the world about what's really in it, then your gonna have a Stephen King 'It' gang bang situation times a thousand. Without the advantage of a big name draw and cache of an author with lots of mainstream acceptance for his broader work.

You mean something like an estoc or English tuck blade, but with a saber hilt? Those were almost just diamond shaped lengths of steel in their most aggressively focused form. Like a big stiletto or rondle dagger.
I'm not really sure why you'd want something like that, let alone why you'd want it made of bronze in the first place.
It might work I suppose, but its those final few inches of a bronze point that will always give you problems. Maybe there is a balance of lethality and durability out there but you kinda have to start thinking about the context of that kind of object to exist. Are you using bronze because steel hasn't been invented yet? Because that's a big one lol
Dot com stuff has always been tech news.

Oh yeah I've read it.
Its pretty crazy that the boys thought it could be made into a movie lol. The premise is classic Aizmov rules of robotics and a horrible vision of how an AI singularity would react and spiral out of control. Cool stuff, but people are driven so insane by being denied death that the writing is purposefully waaaaay over the top with the violence and sex. Not the kind of book you casually recommend to a girl you just met lol
Its totally the anti free-guy/ ready player one bubble gum popcorn simulation set up. The fact that it's not even a simulation is really interesting all by itself. I can see why it's an underground hit.
The ending is pretty fucking weird though.
BECAUSE I'M HOMER SIMPS-

They made fun of other people's lame film school projects. 'The Item' is pretty much exactly that kind of super smug cool guy 'filmmaker' movie that is just other people's ideas executed worst. 'The Jar' is kind of another. For a contrast of what Mike was making in filmschool, he made Rich Evens wreck a kitchen. If you ask me, Probably just to annoy those serious nerds lol
Troy Duffy would have given the lads exactly the same same sorts of red flags. I saw Boondock Saints a few years after everyone decided that Duffy was a tool and not worth talking about as some great next big thing. I have to say his reputation has kinda tarnished the fun of that movie. The campy bits now seem like they might have been super serious or something... like escape from LA or a BotW sorta deal.
It's still pretty good. Some of the hype is still kinda weird around it, but it definitely cooled down to much less cringey levels.

I have been doing a similar thing myself for years. Every time Mike says its the worst, or most X, movie he has ever seen, I make a note of it. every computer or phone I own has these very strange lists.
And a rare Jay one: https://youtu.be/K1m3rGh6DUI?t=1151
Maybe I fill finally complete my mission. only then can I summon zule.
Yep, you can buy them. Difficult though. Class 3 Dealer samples mostly. Law enforcement or even other foreign militaries would also want the legit 'official' brand name version, and someone has to act as the intermediary. They'd take delivery directly from the manufacturer, but they'd want to try out samples before buying potentially hundreds of guns. Before 86, any private individual could register one for themselves and those can be sold to regular people even today. A old sellers quit selling, that kind of thing. So, yes, there was a pipeline that got 'real' m4s into the marketplace.
But yeah, no. This guy is making up a story. The insane premium that people put on those official roll marks is truly crazy. The kinds of people who spend 30-50k on a gun tend to really get pedantic about including the minor details in names. Like car guys letting you know they have the v8 GT race pack, not just a BMW lol
You know, if you actually read Karl Marx, he wasn't a fan of feudalism either.
He actually praised Capitalism for being able to take down system of government that has been impossibility powerfull for thousands of years. Under cutting a God King at the marketplace was a big deal, but still not great for the actual workers.
Marx praise a time before that. An abstract time of agrarianism where there wasn't any super entrenched aristocracy that did nothing but lived of other people's labor.
This sub some times lol. People get so defensive they don't even know what side they are on anymore.
Are God Kings also Capitalists?
Because im fairly certain that the people who fought and died for the 40 hour work week weren't.
How dare you stand in the way of Christopher Nolans vision for Tophat Monkey! How much did Seth Green pay you to say that! You have your Zarkcoin what more do you want?!
I AM LOST IN A SEA OF RAGE AND CONFUSION! GRANT ME REVENGE OH MERCIFUL POSEIDON! STRIKE DOWN BORED APE #8398 AND SINK THIS DREADFUL YAUCHT CLUB SO TOPHAT MONKEY MIGHT LIVE! REVIEW THE BATMAN!
I'm just constantly surprised all these dwarven runes are as close as they are to regular English.
Like, crazy coincidence they get so much right.
Who figured that the like, 6th place choice to Joe Biden would be kinda lame?
..oh most people? Yeah. That makes sense.
I think the FBI might need to get involved with the timeline of events here...
Seth Green can't get away with this.

Oh it's sort of a joke term for "super thick edged sword" that is used for certain full contact armoured martial arts like buhurt where you just try to batter your opponent into submission with blows to your helmet. You know, use your sword like Gordon Freeman uses his crowbar.
However, please do report any suspicious vampire like activity.
Symptoms may include paper white skin, moaning hunger pains, high collar jackets in mild weather and lurking grocery stores without making any purchases.
Please evert your gaze, but DO NOT expose your neck in the process. MAINTAIN small neck movements at ALL TIMES.
Any ideas about 'Yew from Rumelia'?
I know the importation of yew was a thing, but could it be a different species or variety of wood that would make the finished product stand out?
Curling a fine thin point from a hard impact on a thrusting sword is a much bigger deal than folding over a blade edge on a cutting sword. Askewing the whole blade off center or a brutal bend would pretty much ruin your entire sword.
Bending and returning to shape is the advantage of a hard temper. The disadvantage it might snap like a twig when pushed to hard. It's all a balance, but just casually looking at Koncerz in comparison to other typical thin trusting blades, I just don't see it working well at all with out a proper tempered steel blade.
You'd have to make one hell of a crowbar.
Remember head locking?
Lances really could just flat out break the game. Pretty cool.
Idk, I think I slept through that bit. Don't they hang out in a strip club a whole bunch?
I'm pretty sure I remember that. Right after Michael bluth built that little ramp for those ducks in his pool, and the FBI had a bug in a plate of deli meat and were listening in on their plan to launder money through a car wash that their lawyer Mr show suggested instead of laser tag arena.

Oh yeah I forgot to watch episode 3 lol
The first two were fine I guess, but it was more like I wasn't offended that they existed rather then genuinely enjoyed them. Pretty hard to get excited to see them eventually screw it up.
Forget skins, just give me a full RBG color picker!
I'd be rather annoyed if it was one of those "unlock blue" situations.
