  1. Bernthal has an incredible knack for making me viscerally uncomfortable, whether it be from an extremely convincing performance of fragile volatility (e.g.: this, Fury, etc), or just appearing in scenes where some bad shit is imminent (Wind River). I'd be intrigued to see him in a light-hearted rom-com or something.

  3. I think I'd agree with zok that NFTs as they are currently implemented do not cause artificial scarcity. The concerns about the issue stem from looking at the terms of service for some of these schemes and seeing that the intention is very much to introduce artifical scarcity. For example, skittles is currently breaking the terms of service of his monkey avatar by using it here - per the terms he's only allowed to use it on websites that validate ownership to foil those dastardly right-clickers.
  4. Ah. It seems like there's a significant difference between our understandings of the last few posts. At the risk of delving deeper into this semantic gap, what did I write that you understood as an apology, and what do you think I'm apologising for?
  5. Yes, NFTs have successfully replicated some of the worst aspects of the art market. Hip, hip, hoo-fucking-ray.
  6. It's perhaps unfortunate, then, that it's so difficult to distinguish the NFT buyers that want to support that artist from those that couldn't give two tiny fucks about the art, and are just after an speculative investment.
  7. This matches my understanding too. I'd add that the believability of the first scenario is significantly weakened by the ability to re-sell your NFT. If it was all about patronage and supporting the artist, why would you want to be able to sell it? Patreon exists if you want to support artists.
  8. That guy was security, McLane makes a point of noticing him. Even so, the pyrotechnics do seem extraneous as he's completely gormless.

    The cameras operate on infrared light, so you can buy IR lighting that will allow tracking while not being visible to your actual eyes.
  10. This is a well-considered adaptation. I noticed two omissions from the book that in retrospect don't really matter at all. 5 brutalist ziggurats out of 5.
  11. If ever a game was limited by the technology of its time, it was G-Police. Let's have that again, but this time with a draw distance of further than 6 feet.
  12. This might be the most fragile tinderbox of a villain's lair since Quantum of Solace. We can only surmise that Kurleyenko's presence makes systems engineers come over all giddy.
  13. It's the direct entertainment descendent of cat-burning
