This shall serve as an open thread for those who have seen The Last Jedi, or for those who don’t give a damn one way or the other about spoilers. General Star Wars discussion topics are also acceptable, including disparagement of the Wankers in the Other Thread Who Just Don’t Get It. Share
This shall serve as an open thread for people who intensely dislike Star Wars and everything associated with it. I am to understand that, among the front pagers, this group includes at least Lemieux, Watkins, Loomis, and Vacuum Slayer. Feel free to hate-post spoilers, wildly disparage fans, and generally mock our societal obsession with this […]

The Good: I love stories like this: With the help of his professor, Gary Urton, a scholar of Pre-Columbian studies, Medrano interpreted a set of six khipus, knotted cords used for record keeping in the Inca Empire. By matching the khipus to a colonial-era Spanish census document, Medrano and Urton uncovered the meaning of the […]
