If this was a movie, it would be /scifi/: Resurrection.

This board is under a new commander. These are the rules:

>Board is NSFW, so don't freak out if you see elf tits

>Typical imageboard rules apply: no illegal stuff, no spam, and if the Brownpill people can control themselves, I'd appreciate it.

>No raids

More rules will be added if circumstances require them.

I'm pretty laissez-faire with moderation, so if you get a ban, understand that you've fucked up badly. I WILL read the appeals, however, instead of just ignoring them like some boards' moderation staff. For the most part, though, bans will be restricted to anyone breaking the rules.

If your thread gets derailed, don't come bitching to me about it. Instead, show some gumption and drag it back onto its rails by your teeth, if you have to. That or go with the flow.

If you have ideas on how to improve the board, I'm all ears, but all final decisions are mine.

Welcome to /scifi/, troopers.

It rang true for me. I had female friends who gave me shit as a teenager just for having a swimsuit calendar in my bedroom. I know women talk a big game about being colossal perverts when it comes to porn, but I suspect it's mostly the same need to "fit in with the boys" that drives them to insist they're excellent gamers. My personal experiences with family, friends, and girlfriends is that most of them sneer at the idea of pornography.

I brought it up as gently as possible and she literally ran away sobbing and hid in our room, petrified that I was going to throw her out for being a lesbian. I waited till she came out and told her about the studies showing that the majority of women find lesbian porn arousing.

She just didn't want to watch some random dudes sucking on tits, which is what I figured was the case the second I saw the links.

I already knew she was crazy about having her tits sucked.

Back when I first went over to her place I was waiting 2 months for my enlistment date to come up and college was out for her so we had nothing but time on our hands. We only left the bedroom to use the shower or kitchen and the only time we bothered to eat or drink was when we felt shaky from dehydration and hunger. I went round to her place to watch a movie and I didn't make it home for 8 days, which even then was only because we ran out of food. By the time I took my oath and got on the bus she was lactating. And loving it. Her previous experience had been with guys who thought 'just ram it in' was the way to do things, while I got off on women telling me their legs felt unsteady from orgasming.

That was nearly eight years ago. We've been separated for four and divorced for three and I shit you not we still can't stop. Pls send hlp.

Crypto will probably succumb to ruin at the hands of regulation and future government lead banning, massive taxation, and or substituted "fake" crypto created by a govt or many. I use to be pretty hopeful of it all, but nearly everyone hyping into it now panick at the smallest things. Very easy to manipulate the masses of newcomers and poison the well. Also what no one wants to accept is that bitcoin etc are all valued off fiat at the moment not in and of themselves. Cyrpto currently seems to be more a measurement of the value of fiat than the actual coins.

If holders of a ton of bitcoin and other crypto got together, raised significant funds and invested their own coins into an en devour that would realize a reliance outside of not being fiat or centralized ( I think is very important ) in say… building something like a space elevator and only accepting of crypto I would invest a ton of my crypto into it. I feel like it would be historic, a future worth working towards, and would solidify crytpo as essential. As is I feel like its a ton of optimistic hype. Thanks cyrpto I have made millions off you, but where is your damn future?!

I was told by a pol anon to post this here. I found an insightful book I think you all should read, and give me your thoughts on.

In the parallel universe of this novel, Earth was not struck by an asteroid 65 million years before the present. Consequently, the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event which wiped out the dinosaurs and other related reptiles never happened, leaving the way clear for an intelligent species to eventually evolve from mosasaurs, called the Yilanè. The story revolves around the eventual discovery of the American continents by the Yilanè, who are searching for new resources and territories for colonization.

Eventually, of course, they encounter the human race, whom they regard as barely sentient animals. Humans, in their turn, are angry and terrified of this race of cold-blooded, dinosaur people.

The humans start the conflict by killing these monstrous invaders, who took up residents in what should rightfully be, their own land. The Yilanè, having had a few of their people killed off by the humans, decides to kill off all the humans, as to ensure there would be no more threats to their peoples existence. The Yilanè then proceed to genocide all but one boy in the region, keeping this one to brainwash, study, and rape.

This boy grows into a man by the name of Kerrick. Eventually Kerrick breaks his conditioning and escapes and unites with others of his kind, almost killing the leader of the Yilanè in the process. The leader after having a close brush with death, decides to finish what it started, and pursues the one it had "spared" so long ago.

The after a number of victories, Kerrick realizes that despite the losses inflicted upon the Yilanè, the Yilanè will never stop pursuing them. Kerrick organizes an expedition back to the Yilanè city, where he was held as a boy, and burns it down. There by killing nearly all of the lizard people, and freeing the North American continent of Yilanè control.

This seems like the right thread to ask this.

Years ago during a hospital stint I read some novel, possibly written in the late '70's or early '80's about highly organized Neolithic cultures that used Mammoths for labor and as cavalry. There was also a lot of religious and political intrigue in it.

The book belonged to the hospital so I had to leave it behind and due to a gnarly oxycodone haze I forgot the name of the book the second I walked out of there.

Does anyone know what the hell I read?

Seriously, though, can you give us any specifics to help narrow it down? Who were they fighting? Any names you can remember? I've been looking for 30 minutes but I'm greatly hampered by the fact that "mammoth" and "book" in the same search keeps bringing up The Mammoth Book of [Whatever].

Also, there's religion and (so far mostly saurian) political intrigue. Even if it isn't the book you were looking for, you should check out the Eden Trilogy (in the archive-pic here >>568 ) because you might enjoy the series. I am.

The Dinosaur Lords by Victor Milan looks interesting, as well.

I think we all know that, sooner or later, the morally and creatively bankrupt hacks of Hollywood will turn their eyes on some untouched franchise we have loved. and will proceed to fist-fuck our childhoods while expecting us to pony up shekels for the privilege of watching.

Beat them to it with a better version than those twits could ever hope to make. Or reboot a shitty modern reboot. Maybe we'll luck out and they'll steal our versions instead of fucking up something else.

I'll go first.

They have focus groups for that. So basically they asked. They got the green light. Turns out focus groups are fucking bullshit.

What studios really should do, is stop giving a fuck about what people want and make stuff because they want to make it. Not for the sake of pandering, mass-appeal or profit but for the sake of making something good, something to be proud of.

This wouldn't work because it would get gamed to hell. Look at the billion articles about how important and amazing it was that they were making an all-female Ghostbusters, under your system a lot of feminists would have gone out of their way to make sure that film happened, even if it meant spamming your site with 1 billion fake "Yes, I would love to watch this film" messages. That some people really love or really hate something does not mean that most of the audience agrees. For a less politically charged example, look at Snakes on a Plane. Everybody online loved that film before it came out, but nobody went to watch it at the theatre.

Prologue: I, Asshole.

I’m a geologist. This means people think I give a shit about geography.

Knowing geography is closer to winning a middle school spelling bee than being mentioned in the same breath as my profession. And even if you could recite all the names and places carved out by 21st century geopolitik, the relevance of that knowledge has been going down the shitter for the last decade. Nobody cares if some place used to be called Venezuela, or Belarus, or Egypt, before they got rolled into one of the corporate or continental protectorates. Sorry chumps, you memorized all those squiggly imaginary borders for nothing.

And fuck you, if your first impression of my work involves tapping on tiny rocks with a tiny hammer while alternately freezing or sweating my balls off in the great fucking wide open wilderness. I’ll send a teleop to do that shit. I’ll send a teleop to do any bullshit legwork that takes me away from my air conditioned field office or expat-approved luxury hotel.

If you’re still scratching the “can’t-afford-gene-therapy” pattern bald spot on your head, then let me put it this way. There’s Real Work and then there’s the leftover scraps that get filled by robots, economically disadvantaged warm bodies, and teleops with thirty thousand dollars worth of high tech neuro-actuated debt implanted in their limbs. Guess which one I do, and you don’t.

Fucking tiny hammers. I’d laugh if I wasn’t so completely terrified right now.

But I must continue for a moment, to finish driving home my size eleven Shell Cordovan leather boot up the ass of this common misconception about my current occupation. That I became a geologist to study rocks and learn the ancient epochal history of the Earth.

I don’t study rocks. I interrogate them. I want to know their value. Their worth. What fortunes and market futures they might be hiding.

“Hey, didn’t you say you knew what she was thinking?” Teddy accuses.

“Yeah, I did. Because nobody likes to listen to a half-assed hypothesis. So now I got y’all's attention, could someone check the audio logs from right before she got a wild hare up her ass about tracking that creature down?”

Teddy threw his hands in the air, smacking satisfactorily into the overhead.

“Fuckin unbelievable.”

The drone slowly drifts away, charting a lazy circle as it picked up speed, before flying over the the creature at a decent clip. It came to a gentle stop, and plodded back to the small clearing at a sedate pace. The creature looked up again for a moment, but returned its attention to the hanging leaves.

“Do it,” the Captain says.

“Wait, what? Cap, you can’t be serious..”

“Find what she said. If it is nothing, then Mr. Rocky can wait outside and not waste any more of your time.”

Teddy’s face bursts into smiles. He’s practically whistling a jaunty tune as he steps to the computer terminal.

“Oh, by all means, you got it boss. Glad we could work out a happy little compromise for all the work I do around here.”

The drone is gaining altitude, slightly askance of the creature. Rota is still sitting in the clearing.

“Okay, audio record of about six minutes ago, mark one hour, fifteen minutes and about twenty seconds. Yeah, can’t hear anything. But just for our esteemed guest here, I’ll be nice and work a little magic. Letsee, supah sampling background noises from the drone and the jungle and our sweet lil sandy herself. Feedin that into an analysis workflow. Normalizin all the outputs. Boostin the gain and subtractin that from the audio feed.. And badda-bing badda-bang, boom! Here’s what we got.”

If they had only made it from the book it would have been an awesome movie.

That gif took days to make. Coloring in frame by frame like that is a complete bitch-kitty.

>My boy Paul Verhoeven made it, we could only be so lucky if he was hired to do EP IX

Honestly? I would LOVE to see Paul Verhoeven's Star Wars at this point in the game. It would be directed by an egomaniac who changes people's stories, but at least it would be entertaining on SOME level.

I'm a little ways into this "horrible fascist book", and I've gotta say, I don't see it. It seems to have pretty much the same satirical themes as the movie, it's just less bleedingly obvious about it.

I find it pretty hard to tell when Heinlein is being satirical and when he isn't. I thought he was being ironic in Stranger From a Strange Land but apparently he really was a libertarian.

>horrible fascist book

It's not even that really, I don't recall there being any nationalism besides membership of the human race itself, instead it's globalist Earth in which different ethnicities and religions coexist and colonies retain as much of their ancestral identity as a 56%er. Science-fiction is just starved for worlds in which progressivism isn't doubleplusgood so Starship Troopers stands out as the counterexample.

It does have some fascist themes here and there but there's also lots and lots of other stuff. Whoever called it fascist propaganda back in the day just proved the book went way over their head, IMO.

The society of the book could be called somewhat fascist, but I don't buy that the book itself is an endorsement of the system we see presented here. At most, I think it's just an impartial look at how such a society would be.

Season/Series 4 has hit Netflix. I'd love to dive right in, but apparently I'm not allowed to watch anything anymore if I'm not gathered together with my "television circle."

Wow, what I once considered the best show of this century thus far, became a complete parody of itself. Season 4 brings no new feelings or cerebral ideas. Just like that, he killed the show

To be honest, ever since the American guest stars became a thing, I've been expecting something like this. The Jon Hamm episode was pottery, but the others were meh. If Brooker was going to whore himself slightly in order to get his show made, then he'd inevitably whore himself out a lot.

It means friends and family members decided, without my fucking input, thank you very much, that we'd all get together and watch certain shows together, and we're not allowed to watch ahead… unless of course I can't make it, whereas they watch it, anyway. I should probably go ahead and watch the Star Trek one, though, just so I know what to expect and can try to stop the inevitable sperg-out on my end.

Not my problem. My kids have laser-vision and can fly. Any Kryptonians who want to bitch about it are welcome to face a hate-crime tribunal for hurting my feelings. Kryptonite ain't got shit on three social justice faggots with a modicum of power.

Whats your favourite dark fantasy stories? Most dark dystopian stories tend to be sci fi but I really like dystopian fantasy.

The demon war series is pretty fun if you can look past the slutty main character and the love triangle.

Clive Barker's The Thief of Always was pretty good. About halfway through you realize you're actually reading a children's horror book.

Then there's Guardians of the Flame. A bunch of University role-playing gamers get zapped to the game world. Rape, betrayal, casual murder, and all sorts of pissing on the prime directive, as the protagonists establish a village where they start cranking out weapons of mass destruction from their homeworld, Earth. I stopped about 8 books in.

>"she usually isn't into Star Wars but I was surprised she was as engaged and as attentive to the movie the whole time"

It's definitely a Star Wars for normals. The wife thought it was amazing and the "porgs were so darn cute!" I don't blame her for having shit taste; she thinks the Kardashians are something to watch instead of stone to death, so this isn't a surprise.

>He liked it

This is what galls me. I know I'm beating a dead horse, here, but New Star Wars Adoration seems to go hand in hand with my bluepilled relations and friends. So many people who should hate it are singing its praises, and it's driving me bonkers.

>> not trolling your family at the dinner table

My sister-in-law is a massive drama queen. 15 years back I gently teased her about something and she went right to my wife and told her she would no longer be "taking your husband's shit." Two years later, she was finally persuaded that I really was just being a goof and not trying to make her life a living hell. She can't take a joke and is very fragile about some things, and you'll never know what those things are until you trigger them. It's like playing Minesweeper with the bomb frequency set to 90% (and I've never won a game of Minesweeper in my life). In order to keep my wife (and me) sane, I've just decided to keep my mouth shut for the 3-4 hours we're there.

>have you learned nothing we have taught you

Teach your granny to suck eggs, anon. I've been trolling since before there was a proper name for it. Got my first computer and modem in '86 and spent much of my youth being a complete cunt on dial-up BBS boards. Making the jump to the interwebs wasn't hard. Trolling is easy for me. NOT trolling takes a Herculean effort, these days.
