Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    McQuarrie actually justified why the villages are several meters up

    Their main predator is just as tall

    Headcanon: Darth Vader totally came up with the name, but nobody in the Empire took him seriously at all over it. Or really, very seriously in general. Leia overhears him saying it, gives the name to the Rebel command as a perfect bit of propaganda for this monstrosity of a space station, and word spreads quickly after the victory

    By RotJ, Palpatine just starts saying it because everyone else has

    Just watched the Despecialized Edition of Star Wars

    that was really good, especially since it's my first time seeing anything pre-Special Editions that I can remember

    Most of my fascination with watches is a recent development from about nine months ago

    I was on a rainforest expedition in Costa Rica and the best book I brought with me was William Gibson's All Tomorrow's Parties. Watches feature heavily in the book, along with a few other items of vintage tech, as this strange motif of the post-cyberpunk future and how things never quite got as advanced as we thought they would. The most gushed over is a WWII Jaeger. Once I ran out of all my other books, and a couple got water damage, I just began reading ATP over and over again to kill time when it was too rainy to get into the rainforest. Probably five times.

    So when I got home, I researched every single watch named in the book. Researched the current watch market. Found my first mechanical, an old tub of Russian steel called a Vostok Amphibia which will outlive me and probably the sun. Also a minor obsession with Casio's G-Shock range, because they're insanity encased in plastic.

    So yes, riding a Jaeger LeCoultre transport truck into hell sounds like a solid deal

    edit: yeah Bagel, I won't argue with you on that. From an objective standpoint, the best watch money can buy is almost certainly cheap and Japanese. It's why they imploded the market so hard back in the 80s.
