It involves the oceans of Pandora, so it's likely to have SUBMEHREENS!!1!1!1!!111111!
Also Quaritch is returning because they cloned him so Colonel Badass is hunting Na'vi once again!
That guy was best character.
I would pay money for a 40 minute snuff film of that planet burning.

These two things need to happen.
As for the nasty locals problem - the solution is ages old. Introduce them to some addictive drugs which only you can supply.

Oh, there's another, also ages old method. Introduce them to a pathogen only you are resistant to.

We are doomed. It's just that whatever is going to kill us all just happens to be, from a scientific standpoint, pretty frickin' awesome.

Plot twist: Na'vi have superior drug only they can provide, humans release bio-weapon and exchange antidotes for drugs, keeping primitive society on the verge of extinction.

Or maybe the Na'vi... Are the drugs!

And humans, having learned the terrible lesson about overexploitation in the past, proceed to carefully keep a breeding stock to secure their future supply. And thus the movies end with an important feel-good message about environmentalism and everybody gets a happy end.

Well, except the Na'vi. Gorram space smurfs.

Woke up this morning, at around 2:30, with a strangely compelling urge to get up, get a knife, and slash my stepdad's throat. No idea why, he hasn't done anything (recently) to make me feel that way. The best part of waking up, is a knife in your throoa-a-t♪. ...Doesn't quite have the ring to it. Oh well, hooray for random, pointless, mystery rage.


Anyways, yesterday I had to buy a new set of bedsheets. Some asshole put a $15 set on the shelf that said $5. I didn't notice until I was already being rung up.

No, things like "obligated".
It's so hideously redundant.

At least in Canada, you can say "Hey, that was supposed to be 5$," and, I THINK, they have to give it to you at the listed price like that.

Not in America, because I did say that.

Yeah, you can do that in America. They just don't want you to do that, and the guy behind the counter may not even be aware of it.

False advertising, at the least.

It... probably wasn't advertised as $5. Just misplaced. The folks at the counter often don't know the state of the shelves, y'know? You can stop 'em and take it back, get the actual five buck one, but getting a discount because someone put something in the wrong place is... not going to happen.

Advertising has to be, y'know, advertising. It doesn't cover mislabeling or misplacement. Stores will often offer a discount or something if it's legitimately their fault, but not always, and they're far from obligated to, especially legally.

Happened a lot where I used to work, people not taking old prices out to put new ones in (best thing was this was a team leader/manager job) so the customer got it for the advertised price, on the shelf.

Admittedly this was in the UK, in a convenience sized store of one of the big supermarket brands.

... yeah, that may be accurate for the UK. It's a bit better insofar as those customer protection things go, iirc. Pretty sure it's not a legal requirement here in the states, though. Many businesses do offer the lower price if something happened and the wrong one was left up, because it's good PR, but I'm fairly sure they're not required to or anything like that. And several of the larger chains kinda' don't, because they can cheerfully bugger the occasional customer and keep business just fine.
