Star Wars Universe / Re: Vong anybody?
« on: September 26, 2006, 05:43 PM »
I hated the end of the Vong series.  They just drop it. "Oh we hit 15 books time to stop!  Um let's see, the Vong and the Galaxy declare peace, then end."  Ugh.

I really enjoyed only a few of them,  "Enemy Lines" was one of the best books though.  Wedge leading the battle rocked.  I hated how they dumbed down the Jedi. Jedi have all these powers and just because they can't feel the Vong they can't fight. Then they kept introducing 'new' jedi at the start of a book, just to have someone to kill at the end.  Ganner's death was pretty pathetic as well.

I'd say the series did more harm than good to the universe. alas

Consider mounting the posters to the ceiling, and saving the walls for MORE things. heh

Grand way to display, sorry for the loss. At least you have evidence of its glory. =)

How do you go about dusting all that?  I'd get so frustrated with them being dusty but then I'd go insane have to stand them all up everytime I dusted.

I love that Ewok village!  I have it, but it is the reused copy they made for the Robin Hood set.

It is the focusing on Wal-Mart as if they are some evil entity out to destroy mankind that gets me.  It is like a major platform of the democrat party right now.  It is a company, I don't expect it to be some haven of righteousness.

Campaigns fighting the building of Wal-Marts are very much not as they appear.  Once the store opens it doesn't hurt for business, there isn't an up swell from the community to never shop there.  They draw crowds.  Chicago passed regulations to oppose Wal-Mart now they built a mess of the stores ringing the border of the city.

Minnesota had a big todo over Super Wal-Marts coming in from the local grocery store union.  And the union won, but the Supers are out there in the burbs still. And people make the drive, I know we did.

Cost is a massive reason why people shop there.  That can of beans you buy 6 of every week, 15 cents per unit adds up.  Compounded with the thousands of groceries, household, and other items one can get there and you have a substantial cut in bills which directly provides millions with more disposable income and a higher quality of life.  That is the great legacy of Wal-Mart and why they aren't evil.

I'd love to get the more reliable top-loader, but I'm not ready to shell out $80-100 for one.

Cheak out  the local collector shops for a Yobo top loader.  $25 is all it cost me.

ROLF, you guys are funny.

I love Wal-Mart.  It makes life better for millions.  You may not like the idiots that shop there, nor how fat they are, or how many of them there are, but blaming Wal-Mart for having crowds is silly.

"I like Target, cuz they don't get as much business."  IE Wal-Mart = Success, don't count on that changing anytime soon.

I recently picked up a generic NES platform from a video game store in Minneapolis.  These were made this year and play NES games.  Yobo I think is the manufacture.

I couldn't believe it when I saw it! Totally stunned.  My NES has been busted for a long time.  Tetris baby!
