Star Trek: TNG was better than the original series, and Jean-Luc Picard was a way better captain than Kirk.
And when it comes to Kirk, Chris Pine > William Shatner.

If Solo ends up being worse than any of the prequels, I will be very surprised.

I should have clarified; In my mind I didnt include those, but yes, you are right.

If your only compairing the TV series and not the movies then yes I'll agree. However the original 6 movies are far better then the TNG movies.

And when it comes to Kirk, Chris Pine > William Shatner.
This I will agree with 100%.
I'll also add that Karl Urban makes a decent McKoy. Not better then DeForest Kelley but at least an equal.
The rest of the cast is just kinda bland.
If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense.
Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't.
And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would.

TV series, for sure. As for the movies, nothing tops Wrath of Khan...but I'd also argue that most of the movies out of the original six and TNG weren't much to write home about. First Contact was the only decent TNG film.

Hey, I'm not single and I spent $0 today!


(Because we celebrated Sunday night because we thought I'd be working until 11 tonight today. $300 Melting Pot meal and flowers).

I'm single, but the damn cats are expensive. $600 in vet bills over the last two months.
Plus the stupid fricking carbon tax the government is imposing on us here has caused everything here to go up in price.  >:(

I can relate. M dog is not even 7 and he already has arthritis. My monthly expenses have already gone up just in special foods to help ease the pain. I can see down the road in his later years its going to cost me a small fortune to keep him comfortable.

And yet another shooting. Jesus.

So heres my unpopular opinion, Im a CHL holder and I believe in 2A.
But where that ends is that I know its way too easy to even obtain a license. Add to that, these parents whose kids get their guns and kill themselves or others, should action be taken agains them? It just seems to me if you are going to have a gun, you should have a fucking clue on how to handle it and certainly be aware of storing it away safely.
Im not suggesting thats what happened her either because I have no idea.

It's an AR-15. Again. Because it's always an AR-15. But god forbid we have a conversation about banning them, or any assault rifle really.

It's really simple. This is the 18th school shooting THIS YEAR already. No more dead children. It is far past time for stricter gun control and there's literally 0 reason not to pass legislation now towards that goal.

No more dead kids. Period.

And here's the thing, 2A folks, for the most part, won't even discuss it. You bring up any idea for restrictions and out comes people kill people, law breakers gonna break the law etc...
Felons can legally purchase guns, they shouldn't be able to, at least not without rigid check points. No record of firearms transactions with private sellers, can we even discuss that? Nope, 2A.
It just blows my mind in a civilized world with supposed mores based in humanity we would be able to at least discuss ways to protect our citizens.

Oh hey, blaming video games is back again.
