    I've seen it twice and will be going again this coming weekend. All that waiting around we did for Thanos to actually do something really paid off. Such a good character and well executed. Fun to watch, equally as fun as finally getting to see the Guardians and Avengers team up.

    Fun heroes, a good villain, and high stakes is just a winning combo. A well executed culmination to the franchise. Looking forward to seeing where it goes from here.

    Fast train would be nice. I want that Hyperloop shit though. Portland to Seattle in 15-20 minutes? That would be an absolute game changer.

    FRANKFURT — The German carmakers Daimler and BMW said on Thursday that they will merge their car-sharing businesses as they try to compete better with Silicon Valley companies out to upend the traditional automotive industry.

    Daimler, the maker of Mercedes-Benz cars, and BMW said they would put their respective mobility services — an array of apps and services that provide transport options for people who may not own cars — into a joint venture in which they will own equal shares.

    The alliance is a major departure for BMW and Daimler, longtime rivals for the affections of affluent car buyers. Along with Volkswagen’s Audi division, the pair dominate the global market for luxury vehicles. Still, they are in danger of being overwhelmed by the superior financial firepower of new competitors from the tech world. Alphabet, Google’s parent company, which has invested in autonomous car technology, has a stock market value 10 times Daimler’s.

    This is pretty interesting. This is like if McDonalds & Burger King started opening joint restaurants or Coke & Pepsi developing a line of sodas together.

    The future of urban transportation, driverless cars, taxi drones etc, interests me very much as somebody who doesn't own a car. I'm always looking for newer, more efficient, cheaper ways to get around town. I'm excited for what's to come and I'm thankful to live in the time where we get to watch this stuff unfold in real time.

    Now, if we could just get going on an express travel system between Portland & Seattle, that would truly excite me.

    Some minor spoilers and interesting information has come out in the last couple days. (No plot spoilers)

    https://www.inverse.com/article/42818-solo-star-wars-han-villain-enfys-nest

    The upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story movie will re-canonize a villainous group that first emerged more than 40 years ago in Star Wars comics, and with that comes a badass new leader called Enfys Nest.

    Late last week, photos of a new Solo: A Star Wars Story toy emerged that confirmed a character named Enfys Nest would indeed appear in the upcoming movie. But this character is also a deep-cut reference to a very old comic from Marvel called Star Wars 8: Eight for Aduba-3. Which means that Solo will essentially re-canonize the Cloud-Riders after they became non-canon Star Wars Legends in 2014.

    And a little insider (and encouraging) info: https://www.inverse.com/article/42855-solo-reshoots-star-wars-rumor-ron-howard

    The story of how Han Solo became the charming rogue everyone loved in the original Star Wars wasn’t rewritten when Ron Howard took over directorial duties from Chris Miller and Phil Lord. According to a new secret interview published on Monday, the script for Solo: A Star Wars Story didn’t change at all. All the scenes just had to be reshot with a cockier vibe.

    According to Vulture an unnamed actor who claims to have worked on Solo dished the dirt on the behind-the-scenes drama on the film. According to this Star Wars version of Deepthroat, Ron Howard’s directorial tenure on Solo has nothing to do with rewrites of the Lawrence Kasdan/Jon Kasdan script. “It’s exactly the same script,” the source said. “They’re filming exactly the same things.” And according to some chatter in Los Angeles, that script is actually pretty damn good. On Monday, long-time sci-fi critic and journalist Mark A. Altman tweeted that the film is “apparently quite good.” This is notable only because Altman is a tough critic. To be clear, he hasn’t seen it yet himself, the relevant thing here is that the insider buzz around Solo is starting to turn positive.

    So Mike's layer is basically saying this never happened, he didn't touch anybody. Could get interesting!

    If he really hurt the lady, and it sounds like he did a little bit, inadvertently or not, then he should at the very least pay for any medical expenses and whatever else, apologize and pay her some money and whatever, and if he's a decent person like I think he is, he should have no problem doing that.
