too bad they do not make a 40" 5k monitor

with 78% more pixels than a UHD 4k panel and a over 5000 horizontal pixels and 2880 vertical pixels 5200-1440 would make for a killer custom ultra wide resolution to play on. Honestly I forget how many horizontal pixels a 5k panel has.

Re: So, this new Star Wars movie

My guess is Rey is a Virgin mary birth like Anakin Skywalker...perhaps desert planets are prone to female births with no male involved.

It sorta makes sense with the prophecy that will bring balance to the force from the prequels.

Instead of just dying and not knowing how you and your tank and crew were killed it shows you a slo-mo sorta like the Sniper series of games showing the projectile flying towards you, with a animation of penetration with fragmentation and what was hit.
