    Neither really.

    I find ST more interesting to watch, especially post-Disney SW. SW has a lot of fun games, some good shows, and I enjoy the legends universe, but if it's in the running for the most overrated franchise to ever exist (along with Harry Potter). But I'm only a casual fan of either at best, and really don't go out of my way to interact with either.

    B5 is a lot like the Stargates and all the other 199X-200X sci-fi's in the way that I feel like I missed the boat. I've watched some stuff like Dark Angel, Dollhouse, etc. with my wife and they're fine to watch with someone. I just don't know that I'll do it on my own. But I'll definetly put it into my queue.

    If you had a choice between $200 cold hard cash, or your very own theremin, which would you pick?

    I'm minimally musically inclined and even then tend towards more, shall we say, folksy instruments. I imagine I could get quite a deal more than 200 greenbacks out of the theremin but for the sake of the question, I'll take the cash.

    But srsly, I'm a SW fanboy for life. Even if my favorite arcs (old republic/pre movies) are suddenly "non cannon".

    Kill me. NorCal has all the bad of California (drugs, homelessness like I never could've imagined, and rude people) and none of the good (food mainly). North Carolina is being flooded with Left Coasters and New Englanders (a trend throughout America it seems). Already Charlotte, Winston-Salem, and especially Asheville are little San Franciscos and it's bleeding over the border into the Upstate of SC and I hate it.

    All that said, I'd pick Carolina if you twisted my arm. They have this thing here in NorCal called 100-100 and it's basically that 100 days of the year are more or less 100 degrees. It never rains. There are no clouds unless part of the state is on fire. And, again, the people are the worst mannered I've ever run into in my life. There are still areas in NC that I could live peacefully, still Southerners, still rain. I'd have to basically move to the border of Nevada here to get two of three of those and then still have to deal with Sacremento trying to squeeze every penny out of my paycheck.

    I imagine Raleigh isn't far behind, especially at the rate at which people are sertling there.

    So there's your answer.

    Also, I mean, I enjoy Star Wars (the non-Disney stuff exclusively, I hate what the Mouse has done to it) but, in the scope of totality, ST is just the universe that hasn't been ruined yet. I'm not a Treky but there you have it.

    I've never played, nor do I really even comprehend, the WH40k universe or games. I like tabletop anything, but I've a personality like a wet blanket and comedy/satire doesn't do it for me and that's what I understand Warhammer to be.

    Ha interesting. I know exactly what you're saying about NC these days too... I go over to Asheville a lot these days and half the time I truly wonder if I'm still in the south.
    Also, as far as 40k goes, people have satired the hell out of it because of the Trump God Emperor thing, which is really just an unrelated joke. 40k is actually one of the most serious toned universes, and it's certainly one of the most violent. I don't even play the table top (mostly because no one around here even knows about it) but I read the books and play the other games. The stories and lore is fantastic.

    Don't orcs have like... Reality-warping magic? Like "red is a fast color so red things go fast" and it's so because they think it is?

    If you had to erase one of the Carolinas, but you were guaranteed that anyone you know from that state doesn't get erased, which would you choose?

    North Carolina. Asheville, Charlotte, and Winston-Salem have fallen to first and second generation C*lifornians and have a very Bay Area/Silicon Valley mindset and culture. In fact, Asheville prides itself on being a "Little Silicon Valley" of the East. Ugh.

    If you had to move to California or Oregon, where would you go?

    Oregon. I'm in the "good part of California" and there's still drugs and homelessness like you wouldn't believe. Oregon's eastern 2/3rds are fairly uninhabited and rural and Oregon has okay gun and game laws compared to California. They also have elk (Cal does technically have elk but it's like 2000$ to get a chance at hunting one). I'd honestly prefer Washington over either of those two though. To live near the Cascades would be splendid.

    France and the UK go to war. If you were a mercenary, and they both paid the same, who would you fight for?
