  1. The "general purpose" rounds for both show that the Soviet one (well, russian one, now) has a similar velocity and a higher energy. Meaning it's most likely gonna have more recoil. And since that gun I showed weighs a LOT less than an M2, it's gonna have more felt recoil. The whole discussion was about the statement that an M2 could NEVER bee carried while firing, which I pretty much disproved by that video. Lighter gun with more powerful cartridge being fired while carried. (Unless BadMotivator meant that it simply couldn't be carried, but that's not what he said, and also not the case.) PS. don't get caught up in comparisons between speciality rounds and the likes. This was just to prove the point that an M2 could be fired while being carried. When saying "much more powerful", I was referring to the felt recoil due to the higher energy of the standard rounds (I'm comparing API here). Not the potential damage of that round.

    Nuh-uh! I'm a virgin, so I've never had sex, but my friend had sex once and he said it was complete ****, so I know for a fact that sex is complete **** and anyone who says otherwise is a moron. /s 😂

    What you're saying is that you're listening to other people's opinions (your friends) and then using them as your own opinions instead of actually watching the movie and having an opinion of your own... As for "what you have to do these days", the movie is out on rental. It's a pittence to rent a movie these days, so just rent it and watch it and get your own opinion instead of relying on other peoples opinions and other peoples arguments to argue against a movie that you think is bad despite never having watched it. Anyway, I'm done arguing with you. I should have known better. Never argue with a fool. They'll only drag you down to their level and win by experience.

    So, what you're saying is we're all wrong and you're right and you could counter all our arguments if you wanted to but you're not gonna because you don't want to. That really sounds like a mature way to talk about things and not at all what I hear from the 2nd graders I work with... Also, anakin became an "all pro pilot" after less than that in the prequels. And he was a kid... with no flying experience. PS: as a general note, this whole "all opinions are equal" attitude today is complete bull. You are entitled to your opinion. But your opinion is not fact and it doesn't disprove anything in an argument.

    It's actually more than just that. It's a combination of an inflated cost because of extensive reshoots and a new director brought in at the end of production (which also caused bad press, which won't help sales), poor timing (all that competition you mentioned above) and the fact that it was released four months after the previous star wars film. It basically set it up for failure no matter if it was a great movie or not. Personally, I thought it was great fun and loved watching it.

    Agreed. I really wish that they re-ignite that flame.

    Funniest thing about all of this, is that I don't even like TLJ. I think its pacing was completely messed up, it had severe identity problems and several scenes were just... childish. But for some reason, I still haven't set fire to my star wars collection. I guess, maybe I just have an iron will or something... 🙄

    Holy crap! Would you listen to yourself? You're so convinced that the world agrees with you that you you're saying that people had to "gang up" to bring down the rating of a movie because Disney had "clearly bought up 10 ratings by the crates"? Is it really that inconceivable to you that many people liked something that you didn't like? I think that the Twilight movies are pure and utter garbage. But that doesn't mean that I go around thinking that there's some conspiracy by Summit Entertainment to buy good ratings for it on review websites. It just means that there's a lot of people out there that like something that I think is crap. That's how the world works. We don't live in a collective of like minded people. We're all different and we all like different things.

    Ah, I was waiting for the inevitable "you're whining about whiners" comment. Saying that people should grow up and move on is hardly on the same level as someone selling all their comics, throwing out their merchandise and generally acting like a child.

    Huh... that's odd. But it's all anecdotal. I mean, everyone I've spoken to collegues from work, friends, people I play games with online, old classmates and the like... they all like the new movies. And that proves nothing, since it's also anecdotal. Actually, I guess it does prove one thing. We tend to hang out with people who share the same views as us. But the box office speaks volumes as to whether or not people like Star Wars. And aside from the obvious blunder with Solo (which, IMHO, was not caused by any boycott or the fact that "nobody asked for that movie"), the movies have made a lot of money. That means that a lot of people went to watch them. Oh and as for "Star Wars movies should be able to compete with other great movies such Lord of the Rings, Harry Potters, Indiana Jones (and I would even add National Treasure from Disney to the list) and other awesome action/adventure movies.... not trying to compete with Skyscraper..." Really? Well, then Star Wars died with the prequels.
  11. Yeah, you're right... it's not the same as an M2HB. It's a chinese Heavy Machinegun that fires the russian 12.7x108 round which has a much higher energy and velocity than the .50 BMG used by the M2HB. So, this is not an early anti-tank weapon. It is a modern heavy machinegun that's specifically made to be light weight so it's easier for infantry to transport and use (but not meant to be used like this). That, in turn, means that this will have much more recoil than the way heavier M2HB (18 kg's vs the M2's 38 kg's). So yes, not the same as an M2HB... it's much more powerful.

    He's an idiot and he's acting like a spoiled little princess. Why on earth should whatever Disney is doing to Star Wars now have any effect on whether or not he enjoys his old SW comics, monopoly or FFG RPG's? I vehemently hated (and still pretty much loathe) the Prequels, but it didn't make me burn all my old star wars toys or RPG's, and it certainly didn't stop me from loving Star Wars in general. I just ignored that setting, pretty much. If he doesn't like the new stuff, he should just ignore the new stuff. It ain't that hard, really. I'm honestly sick and tired of all this whiny entitled bull that's going around in the SW fandom right now. Most of the fans don't mind the new stuff. Many of them love the new stuff, in fact. But some who don't are throwing hissy-fits and spewing hatred in any place they can find, fully expecting everyone else to agree with them, and those pricks just need to shut the **** up and grow the **** up. *Sorry for all the swearing, but I'm fed up with this crap*

    Cybernetics? No thanks!

    It's kinda funny when it comes to forums... people tend to make a big deal out of someone necroing a thread, but then if they start a new thread on the same subject, they get scolded for not looking at old threads. Make up ya minds, people! (Loved the Gif, though.)
  14. You mean something like this?
