I think it's even more impressive that the show went from being one of the most talked about pieces of media in the world to having pretty much vanished from the cultural zeitgeist right after the series final.

I think we can all agree that season 8 would have been much better if Drogon was louder and more in your face.

Cutco isn't a MLM, just somewhat similar to what one. Unless they've changed their operation Cutco sales people aren't expect (or allowed) to hire their own sales people to work under them.

That's pretty much the central thesis of every financial advice book written by 'self-made' millionaires.

All you would need was a second Maus to power the first one's drive train and it could roll right out.

Agreed, workers have the right not to be abused and disrespected, but demanding paying customers act in a particular way beyond that is also terrible.

Quiting means never having to face the reality that you aren't as great as you think you are.

I work IT in the steel fabrication industry, having to use Imperial and metric makes it so difficult to maintain a orderly materials database.

Same reason all of the other thousands of interesting stories you can find in history that will sadly never be movies.

Seems like the disagreement has to do with using MDMA to treat longterm issues. Being neurotoxic means they would not want to prescribe it as a once a day/week/month option to help someone control their social anxiety, but if it's only needs to be administered 3 times and has long term benefits for certain conditions (like PTSD) it might be considered worth the risk. Either way proper research should be allowed to be performed.

Technology has also improved. Once there was a rather noticeable difference between a top of the line phone and a budget one. These days a $200 phone isn't that much different from a $1600 phone for the majority of things you are going to use it for.

Since you're being picked up from school you will most likely have a pen or pencil on you, use that to stab your dad in the penis.

A panda walks into a cafe, orders a meal, then when given the bill pulls out a gun a shoots the waiter. The owner of the cafe runs out after him demanding to know why he would do such a thing. The panda turns to him and hands him a encyclopedia and tells him to look up pandas. The cafe looks up pandas and the entry says: 'Panda: native to China. Eats, shoots, and leaves.'

More difficult but even in fantasy it is pretty hard to justify why a woman is wearing nothing while a man in the same role is completely covered in clothes or armor other than for the arousal of the audience.

No, it's the leader of a fake religion from the book Cat's Cradle which was written in the 1960s. It was bo relation to any real life groups and its main tenant is that the religion is completely fake and people should take from it what they need to feel better about their life.

Always enjoy sci-fi that realizes once you have force fields and inertia dampeners you real don't need to build your spaceships out of steel anymore.

Edit: Unless you have something like the General Product hulls from Larry Niven's Known Space universe available.

100%. Even if the idea is that the knowledge could be used to make $100 million repeatedly, someone with the intelligence and determination to put that knowledge to use would be able to do far more with $100 million dollars as starter capital than with the knowledge to get from $0 to $100 million.

Going to assume he meant that the book somehow contains surefire knowledge for how to make $100 million. Also while we are doing hypotheticals in which we can choose between something that exists and something that doesn't would you take a $100 million or a lamp containing a genie that will grant any 3 wishes (no dumb unintended consequences either). I'd take the lamp.
