Nicely done OP! :)

What did you use to make it? I have battledroid-level skills when it comes to creating graphics. Paint was a pain so wound up putting mine together in Paint3D lol

I used photoshop for it.

Great work on the idea for the Star Wars related version of the speech

OlympusMan 2 points

Nice work! It's just a shame that this idea doesn't seem to fly at all. I wonder if people just don't like wordy memes.

“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?”

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

This Fan Theory, might explain why Thanos was pulling his punches towards the end of the film.

Half of EVERYONE. The whole universe. That's why people on Titan died.

I'm suddenly understanding why they decided to split the superheroes up this way. It illustrates this point perfectly.

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?

Thank you! I knew they put that in the frame for a reason, I couldn't figure out what.

Same here, how Deep Blue Sea didn't get an Oscar nomination that year, I'll never know.

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.

Okay. Before this goes too far, I'll let the actor who plays Vision (Paul Bettany) tell us if Vision is worthy.

AmIDrJekyll 1 point

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.

Did Cap have a shocked face? Did he then pause to look towards Thor then release it? I don't really think so.

I've been mentally putting together a theory as to what makes someone worthy but, it's not ready for peer review yet :)

Edit: Spelling

Edit2: My theory.
