Everyone complains about intrusive and malware infested advertisement. But I see that as an opportunity.
There is a lot of potential money to be made if a company were started that would screen the advertisements to not be intrusive or full of malware before providing them. They could refuse to serve flash based ads. They could be mobile aware to send only lower bandwidth ads to mobile devices. They could reject ads that push themselves in front of the page's contents. Sure, the extra work would cost money to implement and reduce revenue but people would be less likely to want to reject ads entirely if the ad provider did a little vetting of the ads beforehand. And fewer people running ad blockers would increase the number of ads served which would balance out the cost of vetting the ads.
Lucas came up with story treatments for a new trilogy, those materials, to put it bluntly, were discarded
This is absolutely the best thing that could have happened to Star Wars. While he did have good ideas back in the 70's, he's long since used up whatever talent he ever had. He single handedly turned his franchise into "mule fritters" with Episodes 1-3. There is no way for the franchise to go but up now that Lucas is no longer involved.
Good riddance. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.
I don't think that's entirely fair since their belief is those same medical services could have been produced without animal experimentation.
Then let the PETA members volunteer to be experimented on in place of the animals.
If you're not careful, you're going to catch something.
