“Choose Life. Choose the Jedi. Choose a lightsaber. Choose a kyber crystal. Choose a fucking big spaceship to fly you around. Choose Master Yoda, and Windu and a bunch of weird looking freaks who like to sit in stupid chairs all day talking about droid attacks on the Wookiees. Choose Mind tricks. Choose your Master getting run through by a red triceratops looking motherfucker. Choose getting stuck with a stupid 11 year old Padawan who’s in love with an adult woman. Choose three-piece robes that look like the sand Anakin so desperately hates. Choose not being brave enough for politics. Choose saying ‘hello there’ and ‘oh I don’t think so’ and all sorts of fucking phrases that’ll be memed till the end of time. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home on Tattooine, nothing more than an embarrassment because of the selfish, fucked up brat you chose to destroy the Sith. Choose your future. Choose life... But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin' else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you've got the high ground?”
If we're talking about a high speed race that features "combat laps", tracks that intersects at various points and other hazards that usually holds back a human race...then yes, take my money.
Not sure about this one, but if you notice after the snap, the gauntlet and stones are very damaged, yet still useable for Thanos to teleport out of Wakanda. My guess is that the next film will involve the gauntlet and reversing the genocide of half the universe, but that will completely destroy what’s left of the gauntlet and the stones. Therefore, consequences in that film will be permanent because there will be no stones to cheat death.
This may also mean we will see Thanos fight brutally and desperately, and he won’t be pulling his punches like he did for most of Infinity War
It think it was a wise move by Google to create a separate entity for this project. I like how Waymo is quietly coming up on the outside lane in terms of the publicity that autonomous vehicles get.
Does anyone else have trouble conveying how nailed on their tech is when explaining to people who are just familiar with Tesla and Uber?
because he's an AI with sentience, even if you put that in a computer...or a box for example, he'd still pass that test as if he's a normal human. Vision's body is still a machine, we see it being "created". The hammer didn't move because it deemed Vision worthy, it moved because it's literally being lifted by a machine with an AI with sentience. They trusted him because that is their initial response of Vision picking up Mjolnir, they thought he was worthy. At the end of Age of Ultron the three discuss about it using an elevator as an example. Ever wonder why Vision isn't still the King of Asgard? Which was what Thor told EVERYONE about, if they were able to pick up the hammer. They realized that Vision wasn't deemed worthy, but rather able to lift and use Mjolnir because he's technically a machine with an AI, making him a machine all throughout and not an actual life form. I say this because you might say that Iron Man should've been able to pick it up as well. Iron Man is a machine being operated by a person inside the suit, while Vision is a machine with a literal program inside him. No life, whatsoever, Just A Rather Very Intelligent System.
can't watch this today because I'm at work, but let me put it out this way.
"Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor"
Let's break down Vision. Vibranium + Organic body + JARVIS AI + Mind Stone. His body is metal with a mix of organic tissues, his mind is a program made by Tony Stark, his powers (levitation, laser beam, phasing, shapeshifting the cape thingy, and the sentience he has) came from the Mind Stone. By description, Vision is an android. An Android is, from Wikipedia:
An android is a humanoid robot or synthetic organism designed to look and act like a human, especially one with a body having a flesh-like resemblance.
Keyword: ROBOT and SYNTHETIC. Simply put, Vision is not a who it is a what. The enchantment says: Whosoever holds this hammer, and not Whatsoever holds this hammer.
One more funny thing is that the issue has literally been addressed by the end of the film and people seem to neglect that part. By now everyone should already know that every little detail in the MCU is an explanation to a bigger detail.
If that video begins with "do you think that Vision is worthy to lift Mjolnir?" or something similar...then it's no more than an opinion by Paul Bettany, not anything that has an impact in the MCU but merely an actor answering a question.
No problem, take care, friend.
this is misleading. those tests are heavily based around feature compatibility rather than raw processing power. apple devices need to be able to smoothly render everything you could conceivably encounter on the Web and therefore need to integrate, test and streamline every modern Web standard possible for the best user experience. these tests are designed to measure that user experience so the phones get a great score.
tesla is focused on... maps... in house media control app... slacker and a few other things. while it has a Web browser it's not the focus of the systems use and so should not be expected to have the same level of hardware acceleration and software support.
as others have mentioned though they've pushed out significant software performance updates and newer vehicles have upgraded hardware with the model 3 getting basically a full overhaul.
tldr it's not a fair comparison but still fun and interesting to look at.
Thanks for this explanation!
The world needs more Harry and the Hendersons!
