Enough to run the lights, anyway. Fnordius March 18, 2022 at 4:50 am 2 months ago Yep, definitely a Star Trek vibe of the big bad antagonist getting shown up by a “grown up”. shoop March 18, 2022 at 8:43 am 2 months ago The phrase is actually “couldn’t care less”. Saying “we could care less” is meaningless if you think about it. Flying Squirrel March 18, 2022 at 9:12 am 2 months ago Not meaningless, it’s opposite of intent. Irregardless, you understand what he meant. Marc Vader March 18, 2022 at 9:21 am 2 months ago Irregardless? Not sure if this is Muphry’s Law in action or you’re being purposefully ironic. DSL March 18, 2022 at 8:50 pm 2 months ago “Muphry’s”? Please say you meant to do that. Marc Vader March 18, 2022 at 9:10 pm 2 months ago Yes. 🙂 It’s when you correct what someone wrote and yourself make a mistake while doing so. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muphry%27s_law Shen Hibiki March 18, 2022 at 10:28 am 2 months ago Thanks, I was here to say the same XD Font Lady March 18, 2022 at 2:33 pm 2 months ago I used to drive my mother crazy because I would say, “I could care less…” then after she started to object I’d continue with, “But I’d have to work at it.” Jon R March 20, 2022 at 10:16 am 2 months ago “I could care less” is often used in informal speech, and anyway the alien grape is probably speaking some other language that happens to be translated to english and possibly the translation is a bit off. Pick your poison, not worth nitpicking over, this isn’t an English essay. Zero March 23, 2022 at 8:59 pm 2 months ago Translation makes them say the opposite? shoop March 24, 2022 at 3:30 pm 2 months ago The fact that it’s often used is why I often feel the need to correct it. Language is important to me! Hoping to rid the world of misspoken or misunderstood phrases, one Bone Apple Tea at a time. Mr. Baldwin has every right to ignore me and keep it though, I’m not going to hold it against him. I only offer my corrections as a suggestion. Steven March 18, 2022 at 3:49 pm 2 months ago For all intensive purposes it’s a doggy dog world. Supposably their are gramma police out there but I could care less. someone March 18, 2022 at 5:44 pm 2 months ago You monster. 0z79 March 18, 2022 at 9:04 pm 2 months ago Please quit raping the English language. Levana March 20, 2022 at 1:09 am 2 months ago consider not likening a silly joke to an especially traumatic form of assault please Efogoto March 18, 2022 at 11:55 pm 2 months ago Its amazing too think you could of crammed more misteaks in that then you did. Alan March 20, 2022 at 1:34 am 2 months ago You’ve boxed Englitch into a rock and a hard place in the sun. tlhonmey March 18, 2022 at 4:11 pm 2 months ago So… If it just took all the power stones… How is the Strib commander not sitting there in the dark? Tim McCormack March 18, 2022 at 5:46 pm 2 months ago Plenty of explanations for why the lights aren’t off, starting with “capacitors” and ranging through “energy is harvested from them and stored in secondary batteries since the power stones aren’t instantly responsive to demand”. DSL March 18, 2022 at 8:51 pm 2 months ago Always wondered why the air and the gravity stayed on when the Enterprise lost power. tlhonmey March 18, 2022 at 4:12 pm 2 months ago Also: Better hope those stones weren’t powering the cryosleep units… Could have a lot of freezerburnt corpsicles before this is over… Zeebob Froomchik III, Esq. March 18, 2022 at 6:52 pm 2 months ago “a lot of freezerburnt corpsicles” Oo, yummy! My favorite! Pete Rogan March 18, 2022 at 8:25 pm 2 months ago More questions without answers. “Transient” little pests? Are they rootless, then, picking planets to despoil and settle? How did they manage to get into the good graces of General Grape here, and his presumed ‘people’ (sic)? How did they manage to bump into them, anyway? Who traversed which barrier going where and was it deliberate? After all that, I’m surprised General Grape did not appear with the face of Gore Vidal. There’s more Kreton than Squire of Gothos in what we’ve seen of Strib character. But I’m sure next week will bring us more on THAT! Bartender! In honor of the situation, I’ll have a screwdriver. Efogoto March 18, 2022 at 11:43 pm 2 months ago Gonna get hammered? Pete Rogan March 19, 2022 at 9:10 pm 2 months ago No. Uh… nevermind. rws March 19, 2022 at 12:42 am 2 months ago Clearly the Stribs and the purple space entities are leakage from RH Junior’s Questor series. Coyoty March 19, 2022 at 2:39 am 2 months ago When a deus ex machina helps you, the “***k” in “***k you!” better be “Thank”. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
