Watching the kiss at a wedding:
The first set for Star Wars Episode 7 revealed!
To be fair I think J.J. Abrams has tried to keep the use of green screen sets to a minimum. In Star Trek the crew of the Enterprise run through hallways and beer factories while in the Star Wars prequels people are calmly walking despite receiving news that the Chancellor is actually a Sith Lord because the latter are in a 15'x15' set.
It's funny because it's a green screen.

That fucker was spying on every D&D game I was at. Ever.
King's Landing from Games of Thrones in Minecraft. Link has more pics.
I believe the plan is to do all of Westeros or something.

Context, in case you missed it like I did.
In case anyone wanted a follow-up to this story, the person who originally posted this to Reddit was fired for doing so.
The whole situation sort of falls in line with a conversation taking place over in this thread (link).
man what a fucking asshole.
If the pastor left at $6 tip on the table anyway, what was the point in even scratching it out?
She posted a receipt with the full signature of the person who wrote it. Yeah, that pastor was being a serious dick, but does she deserve the full mouthbreathing anger of Reddit scrambling to find every single piece of personal information they could on this woman? No.
Firing more than justified.
She made a mistake, she tried to correct it.
And as she says in the article:
I can understand Applebee's if they have rules written down about customer's privacy, but the pastor was a dick for writing the note in the first place, and an even greater dick for demanding everybody fired, when the note became public. If you don't like feeling ashamed, then try not to be a dick - I think Jesus said that.
According to the article it was a 20 person party, so I doubt the $6 comes close to 18% even at Applebee's.
But it was 18% for the pastor's individual check. The article(s) didn't indicate whether anyone else at the table tipped or not.
Under any circumstance where you have a mandatory gratuity, what is the point in scratching it out and leaving a cash tip of the same amount (or very close anyway)? If you need to split payment methods, I'm sure there's a way to do that if you explain it to your server.
That's quite the wish.
"Some time on Wednesday, Chelsea says the customer who had left the receipt contacted her Applebee’s location, demanding that everyone be fired, from the servers involved to the managers."
I shot that guy in the chest, but hey since I got some gauze bandages and put pressure on the gaping hole, it's all good.
The fuck does it matter if the rules are written down? Maybe they don't want every server who gets stiffed to upload a picture of the receipt to some blog dedicated to finding bad tippers and invoking the wrath of Reddit on them?
This story is big internet news, Applebee's can't be complacent about it for fear that potential customers' tip receipts are going to be uploaded to the internet. It seems trivial, but it's not an outrageous reaction to fire her.
Yup, that's totally the same and the pastor was completely blameless.
Suits her right for making more than God with her $3.50 an hour waiting job.
Anyway, this isn't the sanctorum, so I can't really reply - let's just get back to the funny pictures.
Yeah, that's totally what I said and you totally don't just sound like someone we all know.
My work here is done.
The real question here, I think, is how did one person manage to stomach $35 of Applebee's food?
Regardless of whether or not you believe the waitress or anyone else should have gotten fired, the note on the receipt is someone pretty blatantly being a shithead. The 10% to God bit is about someone's overall income, so the note doesn't even make sense unless she's saying she thinks Applebee's is requesting 18% of everything she makes to go to their wait staff.
Wow, that kerfluffle with the Applebees tips happened here in St. Louis. In fact, I'm pretty sure I know exactly where it is.
Edit: In case you're interested, The Smoking Gun interviewed the pastor.
I wish I had thought of putting a note in a redbox copy of the movie first:
They had a case of the Mondays, so they started off with some pizza shooters and shrimp poppers before moving on to the Extreme Fajitas™.
Hope there was more than the bare minimum of flair.
Yeah, swans are dicks.
