    The First Lit Social Thread
    The Second Lit Social Thread

    Well, both the first and second threads were open for a little over 6 years, so we felt that another new Social Thread was needed, especially given the changes that have occurred in the Star Wars universe. So have fu-[hl=saddlebrown]ULICUS INTERRUPTUS

    PG jumped the gun, fool that he is. This is how the opening post was meant to be:
    [/hl]

    Welcome to the third incarnation of the LIT FORUM SOCIAL THREAD. This is the place to discuss off-topic nonsense, like Doctor Who and other things I enjoy. Also stuff you enjoy. I guess. If you must.

    The title, as always, is a work-in-progress.

    [hl=saddlebrown] Better, right?[/hl]

    I would like to state, for the record, that it is absolutely your fault.

    So, yeah, you are become Death, destroyer of Social Threads.

    The Lit Forum Social Thread: Part III​


    ACKBAR, I'VE STILL GOT ACKBAR!​


    War! The Point Given Opening Post is crumbling under attacks​
    by the ruthless Lit'ari, Ulicus. There are gifs on both sides.​
    ACKBAR is everywhere.​
    ...And this is the point where I ran out of inspiration.​

    The Fleet Junkie thread is safe, right? Or is it next on the list, after Chandrilla and Mon Cala?

    I just want to state for the record that you're all awful and I have no desire to socialize with any of you.*

    *now that I have no more Tolkien questions.

    We'll look back on this thread in six years and see all the things the world was talking about at the time... Modern classic Transporter Refueled dominating the box office! America's sweetheart Rhonda Rousey making the much-anticipated jump to the silver screen for the oft-asked-for Road House reboot! How all our social and economic woes will surely be solved by future President of the United States of America, Donald Trump! The true sign of contemporary taste and intellect whenever spied on a bumper sticker or meme, Minions! And, of course, the great wholesome family comedy of Bill Cosby!

    How there was so much dismissal of the upcoming Star Wars Movies that managed to blow Empire Strikes Back out of the water in critical and box office acclaim...

    I know I just said I've never smoked, but I lied (I've actually never kicked puppies!), and I'm in the middle of my third quit attempt this year and Mad Men gifs are really unhelpful and I hate you.

    Anyway, continuing from the old thread...

    You misunderstand -- I was referring to Jello's argument specifically. I'm saying exactly what you're saying (that class is the foremost concern) which means you are hearing and agreeing with my point that one can't honestly try and reconcile monarchism with social justice concerns. One can formulate easy, obvious social justice ideals and hold to them quite handily in a vacuum, but simultaneously holding to other harmful causes can and does negate the reasonable validity of, well... if not the entire right to an opinion, at least the right to righteous indignation.

    I think I like Hav better now that he's just a Mad Men GIF machine.

    Oh, I missed the change. Now I couldn't get one of my memorable quotes to the first page like the popular kids.

    But I see that we are all still talking over each other, that's nice. Well, Renly is right, cats are better than dogs, Fluttershy is the best pony and all the world's problems could be solved if everyone was a princess.

    Given the Reboot of this thread, can we rename the old one "Ackbar Legends" and this new one "The Ackbar Awakens"

    Well I for one am terribly disappointed that the old social thread doesn't count anymore. The current Havac isn't like the one I grew up with.

    All the prose. It seems stilted-less intelligent. I preferred the old Ackbar. The one with order. With sanity. With coherence. But now-now I am disappoint.
