Why isn't it sci fi

cause it ain't "science" fiction - sci-fi is meant to imagine consequences of technological and scientific advances and how they impact society

it's often considered "science fantasy" which is a blend of sci fi and fantasy

This is weird, right?  That the word no one is arguing about is the one that's dropped but the one in contention stays?

Get your act together, English, you're embarrassing us.

Yeah was thinking that while I was typing it. Bad words!!
No way dude, you're trolling me.

It's strange to me this thread hasn't been touched in two weeks (I'm back for my bi-monthly attempt at posting, whee!) but if you take the science part off entirely, Star Wars is most definitely more fantasy than fiction, and it's definitely more 'sciencey' in comparison to more fantastical stuff like LOTR, say

RELATED: Cowboy bebop is incredible and very much science fiction :V

EDIT: WAIT THIS IS PAGE 9
WHAT THE HELL

ps. why'd my name get changed back from GalacticWeirdo? I refuse to represent the interests of small, peculiarly named candies any longer!

Most/some of us are on discord now,but I'd imagine a few are disheartened by the huge betrayal and destruction of our shared and personal histories that it's tough to get back into
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I think discord is drawing in a lot of the talk we'd usually have around here.

So uh, anything interesting from Comicon?

I copied the share link properly, I think, so this will allegedly get you there: https://discord.gg/WeANCdM
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

If any of ya'll think it's time for a change and are willing to uproot to Seattle, we have very much a need for a baker, or someone who has a brain who can learn to be a baker and hopefully also enjoy it. We will pay mid 30s, which for the area admittedly won't get you super far but you won't be eating ramen every night. You'll basically be making cookie dough, baking cookies, delivering cookies to our store, and being responsible for coming up with a new cookie each month preferably. Ours left this month to go back to live with family in another state and my partner feels up against the wall, :\

PM or discord or reach out if you are interested. I'm unable to provide any sort of shelter so that'd also be on you if you decided to make the leap,


Edit: okay he found someone from our current employee reference, we were that desperate to get someone in there to help it seems :/  if it doesn't work out I'll keep ya posted

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

But I don't even like sitcoms.

Also I managed to escape my custom built purgatory and got a new job, forgot to mention it.

Erops, you should look around and see if there's a temp or job placement place that covers your industry, for the next time you need to fill a spot fast.  I have no idea if that's a thing for bakeries/restaurants specifically, but it seems like something worth checking.  Have you done much networking or reached out to any small business stuff in the area?  There may be advice and resources available that we wouldn't know to think of.
