Would people be interested in a condensed 18 hour fan edit of all movies intermixed, but set in semi chronological order?

Edit: I have made one, if that wasn’t clear. My wife and I have watched 6 hours so far and loving it.

Edit 2: I am placing finishing touches on it now as we watch it and I find final edits and sound inconsistencies. Planning on rolling it out 2-3 weeks before release. Comment below or PM if you’re interested and I’ll send you a PM when it’s completed.

Edit 3: What’s the latest you guys would like to see it? I can speed up my process for Reddit if necessary.

Edit 4: RIP my Inbox. But I love it. You all are stressing me out, but I’m excited there is so much interest! I’ll keep plugging along until I get the “final edit” and find a way to get it to you. There’s a lot still to double check and finalize, so any encouragement helps at this point. Thanks again!

If you want to hear about what happens to a streamer you care about, watch their streams. Dont actively participate in spreading shit like this on impressionable kids who don't understand consequences.

Lol so you care so much for them that you visit "Live Stream Fails" so you can support their failures. Nice.

The Germans thought the same thing asshole. Disarming citizens is the first way you can control them.

jcdragon49 2 points

To what purpose? Germany had the plan to invade and take over other countries. We'd have no such goal and destabilizing our own country wouldn't help with that even if it was. Supreme control you're talking about makes no sense and history has told us it never works out. Our government is dumb but smart enough to know anything of that nature wouldn't work on an economic level let alone a physical one.

No. The 2nd Amendment is a human right.

jcdragon49 2 points

It really isn't

remotewashboard 1 point

It absolutely is. The 2nd amendment isn't about guns. It's about self-defense and protection from a hypothetical tyrannous government.

jcdragon49 0 points

You can defend yourself with lots of things besides guns.

Um ok. Maybe you thought it would just be made entirely of plastic?

There's multiple videos of people demonstrating theirs actually. How many do you want?

jcdragon49 2 points

Yeah, when you say 3D printed AR that normally means the whole thing is 3D printed, otherwise your taking 80% finished product and printing the last bits and calling it "3D printed"

TracyMorganFreeman 1 point

Alright which parts count as "assault parts" and which are parts that can be attached to non assault rifles too? Which parts did he not print here? Which printed parts if they tore themselves apart would have still allowed the gun to function?

I fear I don't see how it must be 100% printed to count against your claim that printed guns will tear themselves apart.

jcdragon49 2 points

I fail to see how 3D printed guns is some kind of argument again manufacted gun regulations.

Something like this probably takes considerable time and money and resources that will eliminate most of the people trying to access weapons for deadly reasons. If anything, forcing people to go through the hassle of finding a way to get 3D printed gun will decrease gun violence as a whole. Unless you wanna start printing an selling 3D guns to people like a black market gun dealer.

We have a military for a reason...instead of having our military over seas in Syria and ,Iraq we bring them home and as for money we'll save millions from leaving the middle east... that simple it's not rocket science

jcdragon49 4 points

Soooo a military state?

ChiefTehandon 1 point

If we can still keep our guns there's nothing to worry about😉 that's what the second amendment was for if government gets too tyrannical we can shoot them and take away their power..government should fear it's people not the other way around

jcdragon49 1 point

Yeah, they def won't you their massive stock of physical weapons, audible suppression, chemical weapons and God knows what else. I mean if they're attacking their own people why not? It's not like they'd have much to lose at that point. So yeah, shoot them jets down with your 22.

Yes but bullets are enough to stop people firing at those kids... hence why we need to arm teachers.

If they are going to call the police anyways, why not save time and lives and just give guns to the teachers?

jcdragon49 2 points

Then who protects the teachers? Let's give everyone a gun! It'll be like the wild west. Need to open a door? Fuck a key use a gun!

That ammendment was written in a time that a single shot musket, which people had to make their own ammunition for, and not just readilly available.

Contrary to popular belief, people 200 years ago weren't stupid. They where already looking for ways to make weapons shoot faster and more accurately. The founding fathers knew this would happen.

The point is is that gun laws need to be changed, and the second ammendment needs to be ammended, to be brought current with the times.

The Right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Simple.

Yeah we all know God came down and gave us that right. /S

So you agree that guns in the hands of the people are an excellent deterrent to tyranny?

jcdragon49 -1 points

No, my point is you'd be useless in the situation. Either the military would steam roll you, or they'd join you, in which case you'd be a water boy trying to play in the super bowl, not gonna help and should probably take a knee.

Im_le_tired 0 points

You should look up the term guerrilla warfare.

jcdragon49 1 point

So which is it? The greatest military in the world, or one that can be over taken by it's own citizens who are hiding in bushes and trees? I don't care if you wanna keep your guns or not, but don't act like your some John Rambo in waiting ready to do war at a moment's notice.

To take them where? And do what with them? People forget that our entire society is built on our maintaining and paying for it to run. The government NEEDS us to keep doing what we're doing for it to even exist. There'd be so purpose to start rounding people up and shit.

Because the whole point of the second amendment is to protect your self from a tyrannical government.

jcdragon49 2 points

And that idea worked great when owning a gun meant you had access to the state of the art weapons systems available at the time. But in this day and age you'd have to be crazy to think you'd last a minute with your semi-auto rifle against a fully armed U.S military.

MoonAndStarNerevar 13 points

And you have a close eye on the exact number of illegal, untraced firearms in america?

jcdragon49 0 points

No but increased regulations and a lower access to legal guns would drive the black market upwards, meaning those same guns would be too expensive for most people looking to kill.

They didn't have computers, ball point pens either but freedom of press is still there...

what the anti gun crowd forgets that banning guns only stops law abiding people from having them. If banning worked here in the states Chicago, and DC would be the safest cities in the world

jcdragon49 2 points

What people don't realize is if guns become harder to get legally, they also become harder to get illegally, since most guns that are illegal we're, at one time, legal guns. Someone trying to get a gun off the black market for $3k each is much harder then someone buying one for $200

It seems like your question boils down to: "Would I be better off with any bachelor's degree or an associate's in the field I already have experience with?" It's a good question, one that you'll struggle to find a consensus on even at /r/ITCareerQuestions . A few things I'd consider:

1) What educational background do successful IT professionals in your area have? In my area, they all have a bachelor's in something. Some are Business, English, even History. Can't say I've ever met a Photography major, but I will say that each job market is different.

2) You need to consider the professional network you're developing. While the bachelor's degree will be nice to have, you're going to meet more IT professionals in the associate's program.

3) Having a bachelor's in anything will open other doors for you. If you wanted to go into teaching, sales, graphic design, or anywhere else, you will find that many jobs just require a bachelor's in something. Which brings me to...

4) Are you sure you want to stay in IT? If you're willing to spend the time and money on going back to school, you have many other options open to you.

5) Finally, don't let math classes hold you back, many solid schools offer a BSIT with no advanced calculus or stats requirements. Hell, a state school near me offers a bachelor's in MIS with math 100 being the only required math credit. If you're open to online schools, many of them allow open book exams.

Personally, I'm a big proponent of a bachelor's degree. But I'd make sure I ruled out all other options before committing to photography. I hope you find this helpful. Good luck with your journey!

jcdragon49 2 points

Thanks for the answer! It's def something I've been struggling with. I'll look into other IT degrees that require less math. Thanks!

I don't understand. Why get a degree if you don't plan to use it to get a job?

I mean, I understand when people can't find jobs within their major. That happens often, with all kinds of majors like History, Fine Art, or Journalism. I also understand ageism in careers. I am of a certain age and I could make a list of all the jobs I will NEVER get due to my age alone. Illegal? So what? Employers do that discrimination with wild abandon.

But if you don't want to be a photographer, or go on to a graduate degree so you can work at, for example, a museum as a curator of fine art, or focus on video editing and become an editor, why get the degree?

I still remember I read a terrible article about a guy who'd graduated from Chapman University, a private university in CA, with a degree in Theater and $100,000 in debt because Chapman is so expensive.

His future plans? To be an actor. I hope his waiter work is working out for him so he can repay that debt.

I'm not going to say a Photography degree is a terrible choice if you really want to be a photographer. But it IS a terrible choice if you don't have a PLAN for how to make money with it.

jcdragon49 1 point

Because as long as I can remember I've always heard having a degree, any degree is better than nothing. Even if it's not in your field, having one with worth while, or so I'm told.
