Oh so you agree that DD sucked balls.


It was OK, many of the characters were really annoying though... especially "Foggy".

Among superhero ludocracy, DD takes the cake.

In fact the Netflix universe of superheroes are retarded.

They're all from the same Marvel mini-verse of DD. Not the A-listers of the Marvel world.

What if you get taken hostage and they won't release you unless you can solve their special puzzle? And what if it is by creatures of a higher dimension and their special puzzle happens to be a 4-dimensional Rubik's Cube?

Firearms and military solutions won't work against creatures of higher dimensions. For times like those your only hope is to be prepared. Fortunately, instructions are now available. So one can prepare properly. Do not delay, for tomorrow may be too late.

I believe having your own 5d printer (and knowing how to use it) would leave you well-equipped to defend against most higher-dimensional threats. Oh, you'll need a CAD/CAM package too. Good 3-D packages cost in the 10's of thousands of $$. And that's just for 3-D. I can't imagine the pricetag on a 5-D CAD package. So it's best if you are very rich, too. Unless you can do 5-D geometrical transformations in your head. Which - and I don't mean any disrespect by this - I doubt. There's 10 planes of rotation, among other things.

That should hold you until the hyper-meta 6-dimensional invaders arrive. Then you won't stand a 3-D snowball's chance in a 4-dimensional furnace. But it's OK. Neither will anyone else. But by then someone might have discovered a set of knobs to tweak on the quantum fields and defend that way. There is also the possibility of additional time dimensions. Which, if found and harnessed, would allow for making a temporal "U-turn", avoiding the threat entirely.

Amazing to see how much was doable with hardware so "limited," yet we still aren't able to do things of this caliber.

Must be too many low-pass filters.

A little background to the story is in place:
The guy in the video owns a repair/service shop. I think they mostly fix laptops. He doesn't use Apple laptops himself. So he doesn't have a problem to fix. ;)
Pissed Apple laptop owners are the majority, I think. He does ("unauthorized") repairs for those laptops when Apple says that's it's impossible to fix and one should buy a new one.
He, if anybody, sees the problems with Apple laptops. Although, he only sees the ones that need repairing.

Early on Izzard said something chuckle worthy, but I forget what it was. The only real joke was Carr's, that was pretty funny. But the funniest part was Izzard talking about fighting fascism. LOL

Otherwise not worth the time.
