I can't help but to wonder how much outrage there would be if it had been anyone on set other than Alec Baldwin that got that live round and killed a crew member.

Let say, in a vacuum box, or if the air is not sufficient in that box, insects cannot fly coz no action reaction mechanism.
Do you think that air is the only way that action-reaction can ever happen?

Even the inexperienced Rust Armorer knew enough to tell Baldwin not to point a gun at another person:
Did the inexperienced Rust armorer know enough to be able to tell the difference between live live ammunition and dummy ammunition?

Alcoholics are quitters.
I'm not an alcoholic.  Alcoholics go to meetings.  Rehab is for quitters.

I find it funny how Americans think $82/bbl is high. 
Well, compared the $11.26 that we saw last year...

Have you considered the possibility that as an avid contrarian, Tom likes to vigorously defend the most indefensible contrarian positions?

Why develop mutant strains when we can just import them from the rest of the world?

Who would know better than the script supervisor of Rust about what the script said about the scene? With 40 years of experience in the industry she also knows that you don't point and fire guns at people.
Does the script supervisor know when the script calls for a loaded gun and when it doesen't?

I am interested in becoming a distributor of alcoholized water.
I think that the word that you're looking for is vodka.

Even with the armorer present, it does not absolve your personal responsibility to inspect the weapon you are aiming and firing.
Tom, what is the primary responsibility of the armorer if not to ensure the weapons on set are safe?

The armorer supervises the weapons and provides instruction for the Actors on how to properly and safely use them.
Then it seems that the armorer was negligent in their primary responsibility of properly instructing the actors on how to properly and safely use the weapons.

Its not about allowing something or someone to exist. They simply don't want their kids to read about sex, hope this helps.
Then how are kids supposed to learn about sex if they can't read about it and nobody is allowed to teach them?

I wonder if they have considered taking down a president through a democratic election? Or is a coup more to their style?
The democratic election didn't work out, so they decided to go with plan B.

You're not supposed to point a gun at anyone, whether you think it's loaded with lethal ammunition or not.
Why was there lethal ammunition on the set in the first place?

Everyone knows Mickey Mouse is a communist.

Mickey Mouse is due to become public domain in 2024 unless the law changes, I believe.  He's almost old enough to be exempt from intellectual property rules.
Only the earliest Steamboat Willie version of Mickey will expire in 2024.  Newer versions will still be protected for a while yet.  Also, Disney will still retain the relevant trademarks as long as they keep renewing every 10 years.

So almost, yeah.
Yeah, not quite.

A censor is someone who knows more than they think that you should.

Clearly, a number of these rules were broken. The firearm was not treated as if it were a loaded firearm and this occurred through a series of negligent actions.
Which rule says to never give a loaded gun to an actor for a scene that doesn't require a loaded gun?

It wasn't a comedy!

Not if you watched it with the original Korean audio. The English dub? Hilarious. Was just missing the Benny Hill music
You have a pretty sick sense of humor.

The way I figure it, unless you're fluent in the native language, you're at the mercy of the translators either way.

Are you saying America uses or cares for none of these? Oh yeah, you guys stole all the credit...
What evidence do you have that the US "stole all the credit" for all of those?  How many of those were invented by multinational corporations, organizations or collaborations?

Hey.... We already resolved this numb nuts. Try to keep up. We are talking about kimchi now
"Because I said so" is not valid evidence.

I hope we get some sequels but I predict it'll lose so much money that we'll have to wait another 40 years before they try again.

They really should film the entire trilogy at once and then just space out the releases.
Villeneuve wanted to film both parts at once, however the studio wouldn't take the risk.  He says he's just happy anyone would let him make a film again after the commercial disaster of Bladerunner, so he's not really surprised they wouldn't chuck another $165m at him for part 2.
I'm pretty sure that it would be a lot cheaper to film both parts back to back than to film part 2 a few years after part 1.

Credit to the American propaganda machine though. It is quite strong it can penetrate the thick skull of a Pongo
Credit to the CCP propaganda machine for making you think that they have the moral high ground.

That's pretty narrow minded and short sighted.

Their population knows the CCP is full of shit.
And yet the CCP remains in power.

Unlike so many Americans who actually believed Trump was a great guy and only spoke THE TRUTH lol
Fortunately enough people didn't believe him and were able to do something about it.

Americans are probably more sucked in to propaganda then any other country on Earth.
Sounds like you've been sucked in too, just by different propaganda.
