  1. Black Panther with spoilers

    It's very, very good. And the box office is at "shut up and take my money" levels.
  2. Buying the Fox Marvel assets also means that, eventually, they can increase the number of MCU films released per year. Disney typically releases 2-3, and Fox releases 1-2. So 3-5 seems pretty doable. 4 seems like a sweet spot. 3 months between releases, that's typically the entire run of a film.
  3. Political Discussion Thread (With Rules)

    I'd ask if the trash were okay, but people would ask me to be more specific.

    5. "Your honor, in light of my client's long history of public service, we would ask for a lenient sentence."
  5. Political Discussion Thread (With Rules)

    I think we're on the verge of a period of high-intensity open partisan warfare in DC. There's going to be a showdown about the investigation, and the "investigation" into the investigation. Getting ugly, folks.
  6. Black Lightning on CW tonight

    In a perfect setting, Icon and Rocket, the Blood Syndicate, Hardware and Static Shock.
  7. 2017-18 NFL Thread

    Keenum to Diggs with :10 left may have just broken the curse.

    #5 is more applicable to positions of higher responsibility within the government. Ability to win elections and ability to competently govern are not, unfortunately, synonymous. That suggests a need for voters to become more engaged in the evaluative process, to try to better gauge who will, in fact, do a better job at governance(in addition to the usual evaluations of policy proposals). I am talking more specifically about POTUS. It is, still, the most important political job in the world, and putting a relative novice in there is an immense risk, imo.
  9. Political Discussion Thread (With Rules)

    Hey, remember those quaint bygone days when people actually talked about "Clinton fatigue" or "Bush fatigue". This seems more like "Trump Exhaustion Syndrome". We are getting multiple outrages and scandals per day.
  10. Political Discussion Thread (With Rules)

    "Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries sheWith silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" --Emma Lazarus, "The New Colossus" "I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here." --the 40th president of the United States "Why are we accepting all these people from shithole countries?" --the 45th president of the United States "Jesus wept" -John 11:35
  11. Political Discussion Thread (With Rules)

    1. Dedication to public service 2. Ability to listen, understand and respond to constituent concerns 3. Ability to get up to speed quickly on a variety of subject matter 4. Ability to achieve consensus, including with people who have greatly divergent goals and perspectives 5. Proven experience doing all of the above More to the point, if you're going to get a brand new job in politics, starting at the very top seems a bit much, don't you think?
  12. Star Wars 8 complaint box

    It would be nice to have a new trilogy be about something new, not a rehash of jedi-vs-sith, empire-vs-rebellion. An outside threat(maybe not the Yuuzhan Vong, but perhaps an extragalactic menace that unites the galaxy to fight them). A storyline with smaller stakes(fighting a criminal syndicate or pirates, ala the Empire at War expansion). Even a murder mystery would be a nice change of pace. Or just a trilogy about a conspiracy to start a new war, and a desperate effort to find out who's behind it and put it to a stop.
  13. Political Discussion Thread (With Rules)

    I strongly dislike the idea of making non-politician presidents a regular thing. Why not hire Scott Baio to run your company's IT infrastructure? Hey, he knows nothing about the job, but he's likeable and entertaining.
  14. Martial Combat Maneuver AoE?

    You could potentially have an 8m radius AoE with some very long staves and polearms.
  15. "Groundhog Day" as a character concept: Groundhog Life

    The combat looping probably only works if the character dies in combat.
