1. Wuhan Coronavirus is an engineered offensive bioweapon.

You're not being told this by the Mockingbird media here because the US Gov is directly responsible for the global bioweapons arms race. We've spent somewhere in the neighborhood of $100-200 Billion since 9/11.

(cont)
2. The swine flu, hoof & mouth and western Africa ebola outbreaks, etc, were all bioweapon development accidents.

This kind of research is happening here, on US soil, & the last thing our police-state rulers want is for us to be aware of this domestic WMD research.

(cont)
3. The WHO, CDC, Fort Detrick, NIH & Big Pharma all know what's going on. Their corporate media allies are not going to spill the beans.

We're being lied to, and not just by China.

Two of my favorite people collided worlds when @netw3rk read @econoar 's tweet about the @NBA's @SDinwiddie_25's tokenizing his contract on #Ethereum on the Emmy Award Winning #nbadesktop @ringernba.

What a time to be alive!

Thread 1/many
The great @ReformedBroker got the details mostly right, but oversold risk involved for easy Blockchain laughs. @SDinwiddie_25 is turning his contract into a bond, taking the money raised up front, and then paying those who hold the tokens a 2.5% rate until he repays principal.
This has been done before. #DavidBowie (EVER HEARD OF HIM???!!??) did this in the 90's & was met skeptically but ended up being a solid and memorable investment. The ambit of what Bowie wanted to do was much lower than what @SDinwiddie_25's end goals are.

Last month, had the pleasure of playing 20 questions with brilliant #Reylo writer @umswfan as part of Reylo Fic Recs. Here are her responses. Thank you again AJLynne! 😍 #StarWars #fanfiction #reylofanficrec #reylofanfic (A Thread)

I’ve been agonizing about this list over the last week. Thank you so much and kudos to ALL the writers who worked and labored to bring us stories simply out of love for our fandom and for us, the readers. Love ❤️ #Reylo #StarWars #fanfiction #ReyandKylo

Unbeknownst to Supreme Leader Kylo Ren, General Hux has sent a surveillance droid to tail him on his covert assignation with the Last Jedi. When the droid sends back intimate footage of Ren and Rey making passionate love, Hux reflects on his his alluring new captain.
This fanfic within a fanfic is the Inception of all crack fics. There’s something for everyone— unresolved sexual tension…a frustrated fanfic writer who is losing their muse…galactic gossip and shenanigans…and inappropriate use of fruit.

Had a few people ask me recently why I loved the portrayal of Luke Skywalker in #TheLastJedi. So, here we go! #StarWars
Before I dive in, I want to be clear that I understand why people, especially people who love Luke, might be bothered by this portrayal. To be honest, I think that was partially @rianjohnson’s point.
For me personally though, I loved Luke in this movie because it actually answered in a very logical and practical way something I’ve been wondering about since the prequels came out.

Just saw "Rise of Skywalker." Everyone is wrong. The movie is mostly nostalgia-packed joy. If you love the original "Star Wars," you should be grateful to JJ Abrams for attempting to right his own wrongs in "Force Awakens" and the travesty that is "Last Jedi."
Mild spoilers coming.
Finn and Poe remain boring and irrelevant. But Kylo Ren is given an actual arc, and Rey's reveal is pretty great -- and answers the key "Mary Sue" question about her. The nasty endings for Han and Luke are bought back, and Leia is given some great backstory and a solid ending.

1/ Launched on December 20, 2011, #SWTOR (Star Wars The Old Republic) was a successful release, but soon found itself rapidly losing #MMORPG customers due to weak end game support and the mistake of opening too many servers at once.
2/ #Bioware quickly reformed the game into a F2P + Premium model that saw many people return or come back to the game casually. Those of us that stuck with it were treated to many years of high quality content and a ridiculous amount of story + #RPG content.
3/ While #SWTOR was never the #WorldOfWarcraft "killer" that people may have wanted, it was an excellent MMORPG in its own right, being constantly updated, even today. I stuck with it many years (2011-2015) and once more in 2018.

🕘 #9hdesHalles 🕘

➡️ RÉTROSPECTIVE 2019 ⬅️

Un fil à dérouler.
Une nouvelle année cinéma s'achève, et on commence à faire les bilans.

Depuis 2 ans, je réalise une rétrospective sur cet indicateur qui a su se faire une place dans le paysage français : le #9hdesHalles.

Un indicateur parfois critiqué mais désormais suivi avec attention.
Cette année ne dérogera pas à la règle et au-delà du « Top 50 » habituel ainsi que de la « courbe » des entrées, il y aura des analyses un peu plus élaborées et poussées.

Ci-dessous, les tops et courbes de 2017 et 2018, pour référence.

um jedi fracassado, isolado em uma ilha remota, decepcionado e descrente com a própria fé reencontra o símbolo de tudo que o fez fracassar e renega suas origens, jogando tudo fora. não tem por quê os jedi existirem, eles são - para ele - o símbolo da doutrina fracassada #StarWars
em sua insistente nova aprendiz ele revê o passado, relembra dos fracassos e ainda que exista esperança, ela representa todo o conflito e fraqueza simbolizada pelos jedi. ela, literalmente, repete os gestos de seus maiores erros #starwars
no que imaginava ser o fim, ele reencontra seu mestre, entre as chamas do que acreditava ser o pilar de toda crença. o que ele não entendia, porém, é que o fracasso pode ser o maior dos professores. e ainda que tenha desacreditado na Força, ela nunca deixará de existir #starwars

Assisti ainda ontem o novo Star Wars. Para mim o filme é de aplaudir de pé, e vou elencar minhas razões para tanto. Portanto, acompanhe o fio, mas saiba que contém Spoilers da trama. #StarWarsRiseofSkywalker #StarWars
J.J Abrams tinha uma série de desafios para vencer em apenas um filme: Fechar uma série de 40 anos e 9 filmes, completar os arcos dos personagens da nova trilogia e apagar do mapa o ep 8, que destruiu a alma do herói da saga: Luke Skywalker.
O novo Star Wars também teve de lidar com a prematura morte de Carrie Fisher, que certamente desempenharia um papel ainda maior com a Princesa Leia. Só imagino o trabalho de usar as imagens de arquivo em uma nova história de modo a fazer tudo parecer coeso.

(1/7) After Disney bought the rights to Starwars and started making new official movies, and revising earlier works, I predict we will see a wave of new official art works. #Maclunkey #starwars
(2/7) Harlequin publishing will acquire the rights to Shakespeare and hire E. L. James and Dan brown to write Romeo & Juliet 2: Antidote, and the kids spin off Macbeth jr, throne snatcher.
(3/7) Harlequin will also copyright "The complete works of Shakespeare" so that scholars may not use the term unless they include the new books.

So I've been watching the #StarWars movies again with my kids. Get ready for a deeply unpopular statement: #RevengeoftheSith is good. I know. I know.
I must now update my #StarWars rankings accordingly:
1. Empire
2. New Hope
3. Rogue One
4. Revenge of the Sith
5. ROTJ
6. Solo
7. Force Awakens
8. Attack of the Clones
9. Last Jedi
10. Phantom Menace
I am hearing the response that "Phantom Menace" tops "Last Jedi" thanks to the final duel. The final duel is great. Jar Jar Binks is one of the worst things ever to hit the screen. They cancel each other out and you are left with everything else.

#India is about to sign US #Space Junk Agreement.

Heres why #NASA's #Orbital #Debris Mitigation Strategy is against India's National Security interests. #orbitaldebris2019 #SpaceForce #StarWars
greatgameindia.com/orbital-debris…
Objective 1
The first one is to control debris larger than 5mm released “during normal operations” over 25 years — with normal nowhere defined — and require spacecraft/upper stages to be designed such as to “minimize”, preferably, “eliminate”, such release.
#SpaceExploration
To reduce debris from”accidental explosions” and mandates engineering and probability assessment methods to judge a spacecraft’s propensity for such explosions, which figure will have to be less than 1 in 1000. Moreover, energy sources within spacecraft would have to be depleted.

Wherein I think that The Last Jedi is a pretty good film on its own merits, but not a good #StarWars film largely because it ruthlessly follows through on the nihilism of The Force Awakens.

Thus making me the Antichrist to everyone.

TFA was the film that set up a universe that rebooted everything back to A New Hope and set up the OT characters as complete and utter failures in every possible way.

Rian Johnson just followed that reality to its logical endpoint thematically in a beautifully crafted film.
The problem is that -- like Alien 3 and Ghostbusters 2 and similar destructive sequels -- the sequel trilogy fundamentally makes the original films WORSE if you accept it as canon.

Not Johnson's fault: That's what he was given.

Si j’étais vous, j’irai chercher un nouveau paquet de #chips ! On plonge une fois de plus dans le dossier #glyphosate ce mercredi, c’est le thread du jour.
Alors, déjà pour reprendre, si vous avez manqué les 12 000 derniers épisodes (c'est mieux que #StarWars , vous pouvez remonter ce thread de début novembre, ça vous rafraîchira la mémoire ! 
Et pourquoi c’est’y donc qu’on remet le couvert aujourd’hui ? C’est à cause de la décision surprise de @Anses_fr de retirer du marché 36 formulations contenant du glyphosate et de ne pas autoriser la mise en marché de quatre autres, sur onze demandes en cours…

[Thread] Comme j'ai un #OculusRiftS depuis fin mai 2019. Cela fait donc quelques mois et j'ai déjà testé un paquet de choses. Donc j'vais faire un petit thread (en plus des possibles tests sur @Factornews), histoire de vous donner les bons tuyaux.
Evidemment, il y aura des jeux, des expériences, des vidéos, du payant, du gratuit, du vieux, du neuf, bref, un peu de tout. De toute manière, lorsque l'on fait l'acquisition d'un casque de VR, tout est plus ou moins nouveau :)
Je viens tout juste de sortir de #WolvesInTheWalls de #FableStudio. C'est dispo par ici gratuitement (oculus.com/experiences/ri…) et il faut compter une petite heure pour terminer l'histoire, inspirée d'une nouvelle de #NeilGaiman. C'est vraiment chouette !

By now, you know #RiseOfTheResidence is in full swing at @WaltDisneyWorld.
The new #StarWars movie is nearly upon us.
#BabyYoda is basically taking over the world.

But did you know an underground L.A. drag race helped promote the first “Star Wars” movie?
latimes.com/projects/large…
@WaltDisneyWorld In 1977, legendary L.A. street racer Big Willie Robinson staged a night of races with help from Lucasfilm, the producer of "Star Wars: Episode IV."

▪️Darth Vader was there.
▪️Boba Fett, in full #TheMandalorian armor, was there.
▪️And it drew a huge crowd. latimes.com/projects/large…
@WaltDisneyWorld @starwars Who was Big Willie?

A street racer who emerged in the ‘60s after the Watts riots, helping to heal a city torn apart by racial violence. Movie stars & miscreants, Crips & Bloods—at the drag strip, he could get them to see eye to eye

Rewatching #StarWars ahead of the release of #RiseofSkywalker. So I’m going to thread its mentions of the (Galactic) Senate.
It seems heated political prognostication is a universal trait.
Curious what Sen. Palpatine’s seniority was to be able to brief his queen on a souring trade war.

Non so se se ne sia mai parlato qui o altrove, ma da estimatore della OT di #StarWars (e feroce critico delle successive) ritengo emblematica la citazione che #Calenda espone sui suo profilo a sostegno del suo centro-destrismo epistemologico: "Only a Sith deals in absolutes".
1/ Come molti sapranno già, quella frase viene pronunciata da Obi-Wan Kenobi nella parte finale di #Episode3, nel momento in cui si accorge con certezza (e intende comunicare al pubblico) che #Anakin è passato al lato oscuro.

2/ Si tratta di una frase estremamente problematica, che per anni ha diviso la fanbase generando discussioni anche molto complesse su una pluralità di piattaforme dedicate all'argomento (Reddit, Medium, Quora, StackExchange, fan forum, etc.), quasi tutte ancora recuperabili.
