Thrawn Trilogy is no longer cannon, which sucks.

Got it done last night. Glitch mode is pretty sweet.

I've done all the challenges. Now working on the Game Centre achievements.
For the life of me, I can't pass the final high score on The Cave. How did you do it? It's the only thing keeping me from getting the glitch mode.

I'm in the same spot.  It's frustrating but in time I'll get it.  Just take a break and come back.  Sometimes that works.

Hey, I still watch old shows from my childhood, don't get me wrong.  I just feel the original Clone Wars show is 100000000000000000000000 X better than the episodes of the newer one I managed to get through.  They can tell a great story with no dialogue and don't have that lame 1930's announcer doing narration.  It's probably the whole Samurai Jack feeling the series has that I love so much.

Also, I like having contact with females so I'll pass on Star Trek.

My girlfriend actually loves Star Trek.

I only made it past the third episode.  It's too childish for my tastes I guess.  That scene with Windu is epic.

The cartoon series. Not 1-3. Though I do love the downfall of Anikin. He could've been a better actor whatever. He pulls Natalie Portman and is a Jedi, that's nice nice. Then shit goes completely wrong. Yea, that shit is rad.

You know what? Fucking motherfucker Mark Hamal whatever his spelling is, that dude is ducking cornball too. Motherfucking racing Anikin? Spitting image of young Luke Skywalker.

You mean this one I hope, because I'd argue it's the best Star Wars related watching to date.  Outside of ESB of course.

Looks like everyone is trying really hard not to like this, to seem like they are more of a fan of Star Wars than everyone else.

Too bad it's not shit and this has huge OG trilogy fans (like me) super pumped.

Lens flare hate is especially harsh, as there was only one instance of it and it actually worked.

How is it horrible?

I'm probably the most jaded super fan of Star Wars I know and I loved it.

I would do a little more research and possible seek out a physiotherapist that is a little more sympathetic.  I don't think you should be considering giving it up at all yet.  It's not like you are 60 years old.

Proper care and therapy/workout should keep your knees well if you do it properly.

If Matt Hoffman's still riding, then what excuse to we have?

We have started using 3D printing at work for prototypes and reference models.  It's pretty cool, but it's still in it's infancy.  Once the technology matures and costs come down, then we will find out if the benefits are worthwhile.

So your paint doesnt get fucked up.

Car Bras actually fuck up your paint if you leave them on too long.  They get condensation trapped under them, or cause too much heat, I don't remember which.  You used to see people with them all the time, I'm glad I don't anymore.  Ugly as hell.

I built ferarri f430 and f360 motors last summer, they are incredible.  Every thing that comes in a ferarri box is 100% perfect.  You cannot say the same for chevrolet parts.

Only because they cost a whole lot more.  If Chevy wanted to produce a Corvette that cost the same as an F430, it would be just as over the top.  However, then it wouldn't be a vette.  The whole point is that you get a Ferrari killer, for much less money.

True, the ZR1 is aimed more at Ferrari than Nissan.

They've dealt with the problem, but they dropped the ball on covering it until they dealt with it.

Sorry, I am not a fan of it.
I'd take a z06. Yeah, call me stupid, but if I mess it up, I like knowing I can get parts, or that a blown tranny isn't going to cost me 1/4th the cost of the car if I mess up. I like to drive my cars hard, and know parts will be available to fix it.

Not to mention entirely too many fanbois get stupid when they see that car. "ZOMG A GTR!!111!!", yeah, it's a Nissan, calm down.

You're not the only one.  However, give me a ZR1 instead of the Z06, still a Corvette so parts are common, but faster than a GT-R/almost every car other than the Bugatti Veyron.  Plus, my personal opinion is that the GT-R is ugly, some of the lines are just a little too much for me.
