    This breaks my heart bc as much as I love Marvel, X-Men has always been my favorite. but to be frank, I liked the original Jean Greys plot line where professor x suppressed her powers that she was born with and didnt know about. I liked the Captian Marvel movie, but honestly I'm not a big fan of "I'm the best and no one is stronger than me" big headed character Captian Marvel ended up being. Jean Grey always seemed more down to Earth and human. Like I like powerful woman dont get me wrong. But I want a all powerful HUMBLE woman, not a "oh look at how badass I am" woman. Narcissism doesnt bode well with me. And even as a woman myself I was cheering for Ironman in Endgame when Captian Marvel failed and he took the thrown, so to speak.

    I always did find it strange that Donkey never had a name, aside from Donkey. I mean, who names anything by what they are? But, if this theory holds any weight to it, that means Donkey had a name at some point, and yet he doesn't use it. And he's for some reason okay with being called Donkey.

Every little thing helps, even the 1$ ones as it helps us get traction with Indiegogo and then more people see it. The story is about three people who are being forced into a life of forensic cleaning. Have a look at the page and see if there's anything you like! Thank you everyone!

    Okay, those "general" rules actually exist. There are people out there who actually believe in the Paranormal, and even I am. You can't say the Ouija Board is fake because you probably never gave it a chance or did it wrong. There are stupid people out there who don't know what they're getting themselves into, and that's why Mediums and Psychics exist. I'm not going to rant anymore. Those rules do exist, there's no reason for me to be lying about this, so just DON'T underestimate something you can't understand. I care what your personal beliefs are but there are some actual entities out there who haven't moved on and such... Stay safe, be careful. Be logical first but don't prolong.

    The creature are Angels and the movie is about the Rapture. When people see the angels, the angels shows them heaven and that is why they keep saying "its beautiful" and that is why people want to kill themselves. In nature, small lizards can smell bigger lizards that they think will eat them. In the movie, the birds can smell the bigger wings of the angels and they think they are predators, that is why birds get scared when the angels are near.

It's still a worldwide incident so even if the light was smaller there should be some kind of mention of there being a light or something but nothing?

    Dr. Stone pissed me off in two ways, 1 the "light" couldn't have penetrated people in deep sea subs, caves, basements, or space... So they would have lived on. 2 after the "only survivors" reached the earth instead of go to the cities where all the books, preserved food, tech, gas, and medicine are at they... lived in some island devoid of people and start inbreeding... Another thing after inbreeding for... 3700 years their genetics would have been so wonky that by the time senku found the village they would have already died off hundreds of years before hand. I love the science and chemistry aspects of this anime but some of its logic is flawed and so are it's views on deep time and human genetics. Also now that I think about it, if it was an AI then it could have simply up loaded the peoples minds into a central computer and had the people live their lives in the digital space like nothing had happened, their flesh and blood bodies would have just withered away the people non the wiser.
