  • Ya know, they are always shooting people into space in photon torpedo casings in these shows/movies, but isn't that pretty odd? Wouldn't you bring the bodies back to earth so their families can have ceremonies and process the remains? Can you imagine having your dad die in some freak situation and they just shoot his body into space in the middle of nowhere? No to mention that there are any number of aliens out there who could reanimate that body if they find it.

  • Ok, $23. Final offer.
  • That is funny, and a stupid offer, but I do get annoyed by the sellers selling something for $50 you offer $45 or something and they counter offer $49. If you aren't going to take a decent offer or at least meet in the middle, why not just turn off the best offer option? Why waste both of our time?

    Rule Change for PoliticalMemes

    The fundamental tenet of a working democracy is voting. Everyone should have a vote and everyone should exercise their right to vote. To that end we have been seeing posts attempting to shame/mock or otherwise influence people not to vote. While this is a meme community, the idea that people shouldn’t vote goes against the fundamentals of a democracy by the people and for the people. To that end, we are adding a new rule that disallows posts that discourage or shame people from voting. This doesn’t mean that you can’t address how people vote, but even those who don’t agree with you and your political views should still vote. We all should. Everyone. Part of the reason we are in the mess we are in now is because participation in democracy is abysmal. Posts discouraging people from voting are essentially propaganda and will be removed.

    PoliticalMemes is a community for having fun at the expense of our political hellscape we find ourselves in. People not voting is a big part of why.

    We are taking feedback on this change, please let us know if you agree or disagree in the comments and why.

    December Book Club Canceled. Short Stories instead!

    We saw VERY few nominations for books in December, and I know everyone is very busy with the season. We'll open nominations for January at the end of the month so be thinking about it.

    INSTEAD... we are going to be reading some short stories for those that still want to have something to read together.

    Let's read:

    • This is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone
    • The Stories of Your Life and Others by Ted Chiang
    • The Machine Stops by E.M. Forster

    If you have other suggestions we can throw them out here too. I'll create discussion for these three for now.

    Book club nominations for December 2023 - Lemmy.World

    I know this is a busy month for a lot of us. So far we only have 2 nominations for the book club and one of them is mine. It seems like December might not be a great month for the book club. If we don't get a few more nominations I am going to cancel for December and push whatever nominations we get into nominations for January.

    What do you guys think? Should we cancel book club for December and pick up in January or do you guys want to move forward (which will some more nominations for a vote to make sense).

    Here's the nomination post for convenience. November Nominations

    I made a tool to make it trivial to time your turkey thawing.

    I whipped this up today because I am always having to look it up and figure out when I am supposed to put my turkey from the Freezer to the Fridge. I plan to pretty it up over the next few days but hopefully this will be helpful to others (me too since I am cooking a turkey for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year). I am open to suggestions too if you have any.

    [Discussion] Second Place Book Club Selection - Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer

    Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer

    !

    Annihilation is our second place selection for November. We decided to choose a second book for people who want to have a little more variety and want to do more than one book in a month. I am looking forward to the discussion on this one. I saw the movie when it came out but am really interested to experience the story in book form.

    What sci-fi stories bring out a strong emphasis on family (self made or born into) to you?

    For me I would say "The Expanse" is a huge one. If there was ever a self made family, the crew of the Rocinante is one of the best. The amount of time they spend together and how they congeal into life long partners and friends in the face of some truly awful events is really inspiring to me.

    The Holdovers

    cross-posted from: https://lemmy.world/post/7563124

    > We went to see The Holdovers in a limited screening this weekend and I have to say it was one of the best movies of its kind I have seen in many years. I found myself connecting deeply with he characters and was delighted that the audience was treated with respect throughout. Paul Giamatti's performance was excellent once again, and the film itself was a work of art from the solid humorous moments to the tear jerking bits. This film is well worth watching. I'd love to hear what you guys think.

    A spooky season old movie recommendation! They Live (1988)

    This is one of those movies that invite you into a new language once you see it. Amazing in both its effectiveness and hilarious camp. It almost contains the greatest fist fight scene of all time. But it's not just a movie to be gawked at, It's a movie to be savored.
