They'd better be careful how they handle this. It's supposed to be decades into the future, and thus after Deckard and Rachel are both supposed to be dead by their targeted end of life engineering as replicants. You know: "It's too bad she won't live. But then again, who does?"
Maybe he will be a different iteration of Deckard, i.e. another replicant clone or something.
Contrast that to Hollywood, where... uhh, nevermind. Carry on.
you've obviously never taken any time to research and come up with an original thought, let alone research anything to substantiate the trash you repeat from far right-wing nutbags
It's OK honey. Calm down or you'll blow a gasket. Let's pick one claim and substantiate it, shall we? In my post (on which you heaped such opprobrium), I claimed that Obama previously said he would lack legal authority to change immigration law on his own as president. Here's a source that doesn't fit the category of "right-wing nutbags" that claims the same, with quotes and links:
Note that this fact checker is disagreeing with a conservative count that Obama said this 20 times, and points out that only about 15 of them are solid examples. At any rate, it's not a one-off misunderstanding or misstatement, it's a solidly documented example of the president's lack of integrity. Wouldn't you agree, O Coward Without Cognomen?
So how about when a bunch of religious people flag a story on evolution as false? Sounds like this semi-curating of stories will turn more on Facebook demographics than on objective facts.
Let's see... space ships... [illegal] aliens... complaining against the government... OK, I see what you did there.
I personally was in favor of Congress refusing him the "bully pulpit" of their hall for his SOTU address, and instead playing video recordings on a big screen of Senator Obama repeatedly saying that he would lack legal authority to change immigration law on his own as president. You know, since they lack the cohones to impeach him.
Speaking as a software engineer who has always used Windows primarily, I think Windows 8 is a fantastic upgrade over Windows 7. I say that while acknowledging that the WinRT stuff is klunky on a non-touchscreen device, and admitting that most Windows 8 computers seem to be in that category.
However, Windows 8 still rules if for no other reason than the easy OS reset/reinstall/wipeout feature. I can now tell my friends and relatives who infect themselves with malware to just back up their files, reset with strong prejudice, and off they go again to download more viruses. It's a profound advancement that directly benefits the unwashed masses.
In english "or" does have the connotation you describe.
I would say it "does sometimes" have that connotation. Addressing an invalid in bed: "Can you sit or stand?" Obviously in order to stand they will first sit up, but we don't know whether they can do both. I'm sticking with my theory that while writing the summary and tags, an editor accidentally executed it, as usual.
