Actually, the AT-AT is bigger and stronger than an AT-TE. It doesn’t have as many blasters, but they’re individually more powerful. It doesn’t have a 360 degree turret, but it doesn’t really need to. The AT-TE was meant to wade into the middle of a battlefield, the AT-AT was meant to tower above it. The major flaw

Because Echo Base was protected by a shield, one too powerful to blast through. No blaster shots, starships or repulsor vehicles can get through. Walkers, however, can pass through because of the grounding effect.  We see the same thing happen in Episode I, when the droids stop their hover tanks to deploy Battle Read more

Imagine if someone was pitching a dinosaur movie, and the studios asked “how do we differentiate it from Jurassic Park?”, and the reply was “feathers.” Oh, what a world that would be. A dinosaur movie that wasn’t trapped by the assumptions of the 1990s.

I dunno, it might work if they followed the recent Planet of the Apes trilogy where you see the decline of mankind. Have each movie show the world getting more dystopian as the dinosaurs wreck ecosystems, wipe out modern-day species, and ultimately bring about the destruction of civilisation. Eventually it’ll be a Mad Read more

The whole point of a no-knock warrant is to surprise the people inside. The police were hoping they could do it fast enough to catch/kill everyone inside, but Walker responded too quickly and started shooting. The problem for the police is that Republicans have spent decades arguing that guns are necessary for home Read more

It seems his complete inability to stop the coronavirus is turning them away. His support among white evangelicals has dropped 11 points, white Catholics 12 points, and white protestants 16 points. Another poll showed a 7 point increase in evangelicals disapproving of his virus response. Read more

Republicans really are a death cult at this point. I don’t know how the country survives this kind of stupidity, figuratively or literally. People in the 1500s, who didn’t understand disease anywhere near as well as we do today, figured out that masks were a good idea.

Oh yeah, and their excuses are even worse.  One woman said it was because she couldn’t tell if she was selling booze and cigarettes to adults or children (apparently she’s too illiterate to read the birthday on a driver’s licence).  Another could be summed up as “just to own teh libz.”  Real paragons of logic and Read more

Meanwhile, Trump said it was a “badge of honor” that we’re leading the world in covid cases, because it means we’re doing the most testing. When a reporter brought up that we still lag behind other countries in per capita tests, he responded “Which per capita? There’s many per capitas.” Read more

Some conservative-run stores are putting up “no masks allowed” signs and telling customers they have to expose their faces or leave. Conservatives have completely lost their minds. If they had lived through bubonic plague, they’d probably have gone around licking festering sores.

#1 is basically saying that you can’t sue unless you know you can win, which is ridiculous. Part of suing is that it opens up a discovery process, the whole point of which is to find evidence that wouldn’t otherwise be accessible without a court order. So that rule means you can’t even open a case unless the Read more

A 34 year old virgin named Dickson went to a Texas town called Whiteface to outlaw abortion.  Like, for real?  A few years ago, this would’ve been the setup to an Onion article.
