Star Wars: The Best Scene In Every Movie!
Happy Star Wars Day, everyone! Every year on Star Wars Day, I publish an article surrounding this series of films from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. I’ve published fun facts articles in the past, and last year, I wrote a review of season 7 of The Clone Wars.
'Star Wars: The Bad Batch' Episode 1 Breakdown
After weeks of waiting, The Bad Batch has finally arrived. Episode 1 was a whopping 70 minutes long, and despite giving us so much information, still seemed to leave me wanting more. With so much information, let's review:
I'm 500 years old today. So I guess I'll tell the story of how I came to live forever. I woke up at about 6AM on April, 04, 2020. The morning was dew & I remember feeling like the Corona Virus was putting on the perfect display of nature's segregation laws. Like an orchestra & its conductor. I miss those days. I decided within minutes of waking up that I would go for a walk, not to any destination, I would just go wherever my feet take me! This was always the best choice when travelling.
The Impact If The Chinese Rocket Crash
The huge center of a Chinese rocket dispatched into space a week ago is rushing wild above Earth and could make an accident arrival in the coming days. The chances are minute, however the Philadelphia territory is among the spots referenced as a potential accident site.
The Dreamer Chapter 8
Marcus woke up in the nurse's office with a pounding headache. “Your mom is on her way to pick you up,” Mrs. Patsy said. “When you walked in this time, you were pale and clammy.”
Civil Society as an Enabler of Sustainable Development
The past thirty years of the world’s history are filled with major transformations of political and socio-economic systems. Once totalitarian regimes that controlled and governed every aspect of human life fell off. The propulsion for change largely came from the civil society clamoring for an end to authoritarian rule. The lessons learned from the past have clearly demonstrated the ability of citizens in creating peaceful and impactful change that was oftentimes overlooked.
Tales from New Bethlehem: An experiment with death
"Ahhhh.. got me armor? You finally finished it? Well its about damn time!" "Yes...yes...well the specs you wanted weren't easy to come by. The harness alone took me several months to complete. Fortunately for you, I do my best work under pressure."
All Of The May The 4th 'Star Wars' Content On Disney+
At the beginning of April, Disney released several new bits of Star Wars content on its streaming platform, although the term “new” might be a bit misleading here, as all the releases are at least nearly two decades old: Starting with the Genndy Tartakovsky's Clone Wars series (2003 – 2005), the two made for TV Ewok movies Caravan of Courage and Battle for Endor, the animated Ewoks series, and going all the way back to the animated segment The Story of the Faithful Wookiee, which is probably the only watchable part of the Star Wars Holiday Special (1978), where the audience is first introduced to Boba Fett.
Tales from New Bethlehem: Big Fat Freak
"Hey daddy you ready for me? The woman heaved her busom up and down in the man's face. The faint yellowish luminescence in her eyes signaled that her onboard circuits were functioning properly; siphoning power to her cell matrix. Like all androids, she had her serial number stamped in a sort of raised skin indentation on the back of her neck, just below the base of her skull. If you looked closely enough one could make out her name, make, and model number.
Bitcoin Is Fake Gold Not Digital Gold !
Alienote is not a “crypto currency”. It’s a combined investment of gold and silver that will hypothetically force full disclosure of UFO/ UAP technology that already exists, but is hidden away by the powers that be.
A brief history of body augmentation part 2.
Living human tissue naturally rejects cybernetic implants, circuitry, and most forms of bio-engineered technology. For years scientists and doctors strove to solve this problem and make use of the emerging technologies in order to sustain human life. In 2065 a biochemist and mathematician named Zirko Agreff came out with the answer when he successfully developed the first working micro-computers to aid in stem-cell research. These tiny cell-like devices allowed for the filtration, proliferation, and processing of informational code on a microscopic level. He called these tiny micro-computers "nanites" and when they came in contact with human white blood cells amazingly they would attach themselves to them. Essentially making the human cell into a micro-compatible device able to accept informational code. Thus the nanites served as the bridge between living human tissue and cybernetic technology. This led to humans now being able to augment themselves with said technology, as their bodies accepted the code that enabled it. At first this breakthrough was strictly limited to the medical field and doctors across the world were able to save countless lives because of it. As the methods and means grew, so did the knowledge and expertise. In time mankind perfected the ability to augment themselves with "tech" thus eradicating virtually all terrestrial diseases and the ramifications of aging. Cellular degeneration was almost non-existent as well because another miraculous effect of the nanite was to actually prolong the life cycle of the cell attached to it, roughly by a factor of 10.
A Brief History of Body Augmentation
Since human beings began to augment their body tissue by way of genetic mutation and cybernetic enhancements during the late part of the 21st century. The conditions on what it meant to be actually human had been up for debate for some time. The problem was you had many new classes of individuals all claiming to be humans and expecting the same unalienable rights that went along with that designation. The governments of the world had a problem with this as the question was posed should all beings be classified as human and thus have the same rights in society? It was a rousing question that led to years upon years of legalizations, revisions, and lobbying. Until finally during the spring of 2101. On April, 17 at approximately 3:56 pm. The congressional and judicial committees of the Global Confederation of United Nations passed what was known as the "Genesis Protocol", an agreed-upon piece of legislation that guaranteed specific rights to specific individuals thereby classifying each type of individual. It was the supreme authority on human life and what it meant to be human in the day and age of enhanced augmentation.
