I wasn't concerned with it when I was reading your JE.

Wasn't about you.

Why would I assume it to be, if I was not named specifically in it somewhere? I did, however, assume you were interested in a discussion of what you wrote, as you posted it comments enabled. If you would rather not talk about it, we can stop discussing it.

But go ahead, tell us how this site is all overrun by "leftist fascists". Tell me enough times and I might even tell you where the next reptoid meeting is.

Possibly you could explain how you thought the scope of my verses was limited to /.

Only because you posted it here, and I don't have any idea what (or even if) you write anywhere else.

I very much had the Agenda 21 Aristocracy in mind while considering the rhymes.

The nonbinding agreement that gets more attention from Glenn Beck than from anyone who has any power to do anything regarding it? OK. I wasn't concerned with it when I was reading your JE.

I doubt it would have been as good as you think. HE wanted to change some major plot devices like the role of *Melange*.

It didn't have to be as good as I think. It only had to be a singular vision from a cinematic shaman. With all the sequels and "re-boots", it's not like any one film has to be THE film. Just look at the Lynch version. Even with all the holes and miscues, bad decisions and questionable choices, it's still a terrific experience. Better in many ways than the book.

I trust genius. Herbert wrote a good, workmanlike book, but Jodorowsky, like Lynch, is a visionary.

Seizure problems with video games have been a thing since video games have been a thing. I can rember a friend's stepdad in the 80's having seizure issues with video games. Did that make him stop? No, he still loved playing. He made a choice to do it.

Do we ban every form of entertainment that has flashy lights because there are some people that just can't resist? Or do we make sure that products with this are still labeled correctly? Maybe we should even fund research into seizures and curing the problem?
