The Internet as it has become: What's the opposite of 'civilization'?

Solecism? It seems every few years one of these 'grand images' pops up, but I can't readily recall any of them, so here's the newest one:

(click for highest resoution possible)



The image also looks to be an homage or non-moving bastardization of this take on civilization.

WTF, The Millennium Falcon doesn't shoot lasers from there! That's the missile tubes! The Laser guns are on the top and bottom of the ship in the center!

Gawd...

I know he has a point. However, that was a major geek blast to the temple.

To be fair, about a quarter to a half of the entire discussion on Reddit is about this exact point of contention.

See for yourself: DEAR INTERNET, I hereby represent you the MOST EPIC PICTURE you will ever see. : pics

No, you're looking at it wrong. The image is obviously telling us that the Millennium Falcon = = = = = = = The U.S.S. Enterprise.

I wish you Haskell programmers would quit inventing new operators. What does

"Millennium Falcon = = = = = = = The U.S.S. Enterprise" even mean?
permalinkparent


CaspianX2 3 points 3 days ago[-]

I'm no programmer. I just assumed that it means the Millennium Falcon reeeeeeeeally equals the U.S.S. Enterprise.
permalinkparent


publicstaticfinal 2 points 3 days ago[-]

The Millennium Falcon and U.S.S. Enterprise are comparatively equal in value though not necessarily in form while they exist in the same universe (not alternate, parallel, or separate identical universes) and traveling at the same speed relative to the speed of light in a vacuum in that universe.

Search the ghc usage guides, you know it to be logical.

I love that this is the top comment and it is the first thing I thought of.

ChiperSoft 3 points 4 days ago[-]

This was the VERY FIRST thought I had when I opened the image.

polarbz 3 points 4 days ago[-]

My first thought was, "WTF, is that a cat?!"

The YT-1300 (more commonly known as the Millennium Falcon), was designed and manufactured by the Corellian Engineering Corporation, is equipped with two quad laser cannons on the top and bottom of the vessel. The area where the lasers are coming from in the picture is actually where the YT-1300 has concussion missile tubes. Your picture is therefore inaccurate.
