Death Star spotted in our solar system!!
Say your prayers, Darth Vader may kill us all! (via fark)
17 years ago
Saw this on meta, too. Behold, my proof that God exists, is in fact a geek, and has a huge fucking sense of humor.
This is hilarious.
Red Leader, standing by.
[BTW, Has everyone seen
Dear God, "General Grievous"?!?!?! Lucas isn't even trying anymore. Way to piss all over one of the icons of my youth.
[BTW, Has everyone seen this already?]
The question should be: "Does anyone give a shit anymore?"
I hate to say this, but this is
old, old news
. Note that the images on the previous link were taken almost 24 years ago, or about six months after
The Empire Strikes Back
was released in the US.
It's a trap!
Star Wars isn't exactly Shakespeare,
. Really, "Darth Vader" sounds just as corny if you think about it. And I hate to say this, but
's comment is
. Here is
another Death Star
. Old? Yes. But still funny.
: I meant to say, "I'm sure everyone has seen this already, but in case you haven't... Episode III now has a title." Why people reading and posting in a Star Wars -related thread would care about a timely, interesting piece of Star Wars -related news is beyond me, I guess. At least save the caustic negativism until
you've seen the movie.
Except that not everyone reads all blogs. allusion is an astronomy buff, and probably knew what Mimas looked like before MeFi was started, let alone when that comment was made.
On metafilter, they have agreed that comments and posts from other sites, including this one, while interesting, do not preclude the same being said again on mefi. I would like to request that we have a similar system - we are all reading different blogs and never know what the others have or have not seen. Also, it is always good to repeat interesting things.
Word! (What jb said)
I remember this from 1980.
...Except that not everyone is an astronomy buff. You either missed my point or I didn't include enough smilies to make it painfully obvious that my comment was a tongue-in-cheek way of saying almost the same thing you just did. I apologize.
Never, ever apologize.
re-railing... this is *completely* hysterical. middleclasstool wins this thread as far as I'm concerned.
Nobody wins a thread. Ever. This is not a race.
Please do not apologise - pointing out that I missed the joke is enough :)
I think it was just the fact that you linked to mefi, which I like, but rarely have time to read much of, and implied it was double. I've never been a fan of calling out double posts, let alone double comments, and definately not when they are from other blogs.
I won a thread once. Worst. Raffle prize. Ever.
Cut the chatter Red Two! Assume attack position.
Stay on target.. staaaay on target...
INTERIOR: GOLD LEADER'S Y-WING -- COCKPIT. Now he's really panicked. GOLD LEADER: Loosen up! INTERIOR: DARTH VADER'S COCKPIT. Vader calmly adjusts his targeting computer and pushes the fire button. INTERIOR: GOLD LEADER'S Y-WING -- COCKPIT. Gold Leader's ship is hit by Vader's laser. EXTERIOR: SURFACE OF THE DEATH STAR. Gold Leader explodes in a ball of flames, throwing debris in all directions. INTERIOR: GOLD FIVE'S Y-WING -- COCKPIT. Gold Five moves in on the exhaust port. GOLD FIVE: Gold Five to Red Leader... INTERIOR: LUKE'S X-WING FIGHTER -- COCKPIT. Luke looks over his shoulder at the action outside of his cockpit. GOLD FIVE: (over headset) Lost Tiree, lost Dutch. INTERIOR: RED LEADER'S COCKPIT. RED LEADER: I copy, Gold Five. INTERIOR: GOLD FIVE'S Y-WING -- COCKPIT. GOLD FIVE: They came from behind.... EXTERIOR: SURFACE OF THE DEATH STAR. One of the engines explodes on Gold Five's Y-wing fighter, blazing out of control. He dives past the horizon toward the Death Star's surface, passing a TIE fighter during his descent. Gold Five, a veteran of countless campaigns, spins toward his death. INTERIOR: LUKE'S X-WING FIGHTER -- COCKPIT. Luke looks nervously about him at the explosive battle. LUKE: Oh, dear. D-d-dear, dear. D-d-d-dear me.
*looks around for thread trophy, finds missing contact lens*
First of all, it
Shakespeare so just shut up! Shut up!
Secondly, Lucas has desecrated the first one with each successive one being progressively more suckier than the first. Fourth. Whatever. Thirdly, if you all knew about this in 1980, why did you wait so long to post it? Waiting for
or something?? And lastly, the side-by-side comparisons are fantastic and MCT wins. And I apologize. *honks curly bicycle horn, plops knee in Nostril's hands*
Cut the chatter, Red Best. Lock curly bicycle horns in attack position. While we're at it, somebody call
Yay! *drops contact lens, takes victory lap around the thread*
mct- thread leader, checking pi
On metafilter, they have agreed...
This statement is self-contradictory. If MetaFilter members ever agreed about
, the universe as we know it would implode and a new one (run by superlizards) would take its place.
I'm living in the wrong universe. I thought the lizrads already ruled us. Has David Icke been lying to me?
If MetaFilter members ever agreed about anything, the universe as we know it would implode and a new one (run by superlizards) would take its place.
You've gotta totally love this guy - he knows where to places his pitches every fucking time.
Yes, yes, I give in, languagehat :) It would be impossible to have such a situation. Suffice it to say that the ayes outnumbered the nays in a given meta thread on the subject.
Yes, only a Jedi would be wise to mess with the might of Language the Hatt. Fear his trapdoor, his frog-bong, and his laughing rat-monkey-thing.
Ah, we're racking 'em up today.
Monkeyfilter: The question should be: "Does anyone give a shit anymore?"
Monkeyfilter: Never, ever apologize.
Monkeyfilter: Stay on target.. staaaay on target...
Monkeyfilter: Fear his trapdoor, his frog-bong, and his laughing rat-monkey-thing.
now that i think about it, I believe "Biggs" was the one Luke was cursing for not being around. Not Wedge. *sniffs, stuffs face full of popcorn* Wahgf?
pete- it was both biggs and wedge; they re-dubbed it.
"they" re-dubbed it? "they"?? well, "they" must be wrong then, mustn't they? There IS only one StarWars, as you know. Mine. And what I say goes StarWars-wise. For now. Therefore, Luke says "Blast it Biggs, where are you?!" To his great credit, he doesn't say "What the deuce?!" at any time.
Fear his trapdoor, his frog-bong, and his laughing rat-monkey-thing.
Yeah, especially the laughing rat-monkey-thing. That sucker even scares
Down, boy, down I say!
*goes down on language hat, as asked*
Why are all these homosexuals always sucking my dick?
Would monsieur prefer something a little bit more, ah,
*whistles, keeps an eye out for the coppers*
It's amazing how our threads go from PG straight to NC-17 faster than a oil-slicked weasel on a butter-coated slide. /lame metaphor
*curses at having missed opportunity to say, "limp metaphor"
MonkeyFilter: Faster than a oil-slicked weasel on a butter-coated slide ... or a speeding bullet.
languagerat! Bwahahahahaaaa! I wanna T-shirt!
*sidles cautiously away from quidnunc and languagerat, makes no big arm movements (we can't all do big arms), stuffs oil-slicked weasel back into pants*
Is that what kids are calling it these days?
*enters room, sniffs suspiciously "Are you kids smoking something? HA! Don't you try to tell ME that funny smell is incense." MCT: Put that greasy thing down and go wash your hands. Hat: Your laughing monkey-rat thing has been drinking out of the toilet again. I told you to fill his water dish. He looks depressed. Get him a bone while your at it. Come, my sweet little Alnedra. You may have an ice cream cone since you told your GramMa what a bad bunch of boys these little MoFos have been. Would you like crunchy June-bug bits on that?
*hides under bed, giggles*
Shit, guys, my weasel slipped away from me. Sorry, just whack it if it starts crawling up your leg.
So very wrong...
sorry dude had to be done
*enjoys ice-cream cone* Thank
there's a weasel that'll be sore tomorrow.
Weasels Ripped My Zappa
*quietly awaits reference to Moon Unit*
can you picture her in, like, a leather teddy? I am
My brother was a mother.
I find your lack of faith disturbing . . .
