I’m sure I’ll rewatch it in a couple of years and have a fresh perspective. I just couldn’t handle ( forgive me if I’m taking Star Trek too seriously ? )the fact that, fundamentally Star Fleet is military, yes? How did Tilly make it onto a military vessel? Even Reg Berkeley for all his foibles had a semblance of respect for the fact he was on a military mission. I love Joss Whedon’s dialogue and sass but he’s an inappropriate inspiration for Star Trek characters.
For me it has to be Enterprise. Even the theme music felt wrong to me. It felt like the cast never really jelled and as a result the whole thing feels flat and disappointing. Maybe its time to consider re-watching Enterprise? Perhaps it will age like a fine wine! ?
I'm waiting for this thread to descend into a Star Trek vs. Star Wars debate, but we all know there is only one winner....
I was going to say DS9 but I actually enjoy the later seasons. The original show was so dated I couldn’t bother to watch it. Enterprise was dire but short lived. Honestly I don’t think trek has bad series... the new films on the other hand ???
I've done both and thought I'd try and detail a comparison for anyone thinking of coming over from the Emperor's Realm. TLDR it's a very different place in a good way.
wtf goes here? There is only 1 rule on little biggy: no harm. Like everything else this is ultimately interpreted by users vote but a few consistent things have been established and would take some doing to undo:
- Weapons and instruments of fraud as well as items harmful in their production like child pornography are fucked thankfully. Hacking tools are forbodden and even copyright piracy is considered stealing.
- Anything with a real risk for a lethal overdose is considered too harmful for this community. There seem to be some arguments around this.
Along with the fraud exclusion the reputation system here seems to almost completely eliminate scamming which for me is the biggest difference of all. Basically the way it works is your history is everything, you are like a ghost here without it. If you don't have one yet and you are a buyer you get to stall a dispute until you have gathered reputation. If you are a seller here it's a little more complicated. Basically I see people get a chance with a real short leash attached to it. There is still some accusations and posts are hella visible here so drama threads can get out of hand but only real buyers get to write reviews and rate you and that's all that matters when things go wrong or if you want your item seen.
Stability: During my time here which is over 3 years now it's been 100% uptime. My payment processor has gone down for about 24 hours total.
Non-profit: little biggy is not a business and doesn't have the motivation to make money and I think that ultimately this is the root of the big differences. If you're more mercenary like me you can find this annoying on some level but after a while you realize that there isn't much need for money if people write a little code so why not it makes for a nice place.
Wow, I can’t believe it’s been going since 2007, I only found this place a few days ago, I never would have, if it hadn’t been for a webpage called high and polite, so I am grateful to them, that I have found littlebiggy. I used to use Silk Road when that 1st started out, but no other site since. I’ve been doing some lurking and reading and will make a purchase. From what I can see I think it’s a well put together site and I am grateful for whoever put this together as it’s nice to be able to have lots of choice, something you don’t really get from the street. One Love man.
I never weighed what I got from my dealer, in about ten years of going to him. It was always good stuff though, £20 for one of those little baggies, about 3cm by 4cm or so? So I'm guessing that was 1.5g was it?
Really interesting, thanks for sharing. I'm a long time enjoyer of the herb, since I was 18 through to mid 40s now, on and off but mostly on for the last 15 years. Was using a local dealer for the last ten pretty much but he stopped answering messages a few weeks ago so in a panic I googled buying it online and through another site I found LB and couldn't believe what a healthy community it seems to be! I'd seen S*lk Road on the darknet a few years ago when I read about Tor and was curious, and to someone who really struggles to make local dealer links it seemed amazing, but then I found someone local and stuck with that (same guy that's sadly now gone dark).
But LB is exactly right for me. None of that darknet faffing, and an honour/rep system that seems to really work. Long live LB, for what I need it's great just the way it is, whoever is responsible for building this, and all of you who keep it great, thank you!!
We were vendors on Alphabay a few years back under the name 'borealis'. There are some big differences, ie the wall and lack of search options, but seems like there is a lot of potential in this site :)
