Apparently, someone unleashed the winter flu early in my neck of the woods. Everyone around me is dropping like flies, succumbing to some manner of illness that even has my vaunted healing factor working overtime to prevent that dreaded case of the sniffles. There’s only two things to do of course. Lich more health from my comrades and leave them buggered or burn everything. Burn it all to ashes, much like my musical career in Germany during the early 2000s when I toured with David Hasslehoff as part of the Harry Potter tribute band Hoff en Duff.

In Other News: Bloodtsained staggers out of release, Xboss praises the Uncharted team, battleborn actually scores big in the UK and the biggest Deadpool statue you’ve ever seen.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because I was too busy fighting fire with flapjacks and losing massively.

            well, I either drive home with Radio 702 or Gregorian chants (the stuff where they did rock and metal songs in that style) or some sort of classical music.

            I cannot help but think that you might just be better off. At least it is a change, right?

            ah, MP3 playlist on random, I take it? That can be fun.

            My car has 6 CD shuttle, with MP3’s on the CD’s. BUT I cannot make playlist too random, cause it annoys when it switches between CD’s. And I cannot plug in a memory stick, cause optional upgrade for that was not purchased

      Did you know that 42 is a multiple of Llew? So in fact, if we cloned Llew 5 times, we’d have the ultimate answer. To life, love and everything.

      • miaau

        May 9, 2016 at 16:13

        or even, you know, 6 times, to get him to 42.

        Love? Not sure. Life, the universe and everything. But love? I do not think anyone knows the answer to that. Deep Thought would burn out, I fear, trying to even determine if it can be answered.

          5 clones + the original = 6. 6 times Llew = 42 (that rhymes, LOL). My math is never off.

          My quoting on the other hand…

            Well, I did not count the original. Thought that was not unneeded, in a world….. of clones.

          • Pariah

            May 9, 2016 at 16:26

            A world of clones? Do you really want to start a war?

          • miaau

            May 9, 2016 at 16:27

            how about a world where clones exist but are responsibly managed? Assume more than one clone per original

            Now, how to say that without implying slavery or other control of the clones?

          • Pariah

            May 9, 2016 at 16:29

            I was referring to a rather terrible Star Wars movie, but alright. I accept your premise. There would still be 6 Llews in existence, if you have 5 clones. The only time you’d need the 6th is if the original died. Since I was referring to Llew’s and not specifically clones of Llew, we only require 5 to make the math work. 🙂

          • miaau

            May 9, 2016 at 16:31

            I know you were referring to Star Wars and that is an example of what I was saying. Even the good guys sort of regulated the clones, kept them in check and under control.

            Did the Jedi practise slavery in the way they ran the clone armies?

          • Pariah

            May 9, 2016 at 16:32

            The Jedi didn’t run the armies though, the Empire did. The Empire also killed the Jedi one movie later.

            However, I think the Jedi practice slavery of a mental kind, similar to how religion can be used to control the masses.

          • miaau

            May 9, 2016 at 16:33

            The Jedi ran the armies for the Senate.

          • Pariah

            May 9, 2016 at 16:36

            They commanded the armies in battle, yes. But the Empire were running them. Order 66 is a simple example of that.

            And yes, while at the time the senate appeared to be in power, the Empire (the Emperor, specifically) was very much running things, but from the shadows.

          • miaau

            May 9, 2016 at 16:45

            But the Jedi did not know that.

            They perpetuated a system where intelligent beings were forced to fit a mould not decided by them and fulfil roles not decided by them.

            So, the actions of the Jedi? For the greater good, hey? Is that good enough? I think not. I think the Jedi, although noble in thought, perpetuated an evil on the clones.

            Order 66 is not relevant, as the Jedi had no knowledge of this and thus did not guide their actions.
