  1. Wonder Woman

    Just saw it yesterday. I went in braced for it to suck and was very pleasantly surprised. There's only one moment that I thought the heroes were stupid but they were justifiably distracted when they lost the box. The personalities of our heroes were very well done. The action was some of the best in any superhero movie. The fights were just the right length and well choreographed not dragging on forever like MoS or BvS. If they learn from this movie, then they may just have a bright future ahead.
  2. WWYCD: Justifiable Homicide?

    He goes to the authorities. He has plenty of ways to stop him without killing.
  3. As comics nerds, we know that. But the mainstream audience is going to go " Who?" It doesn't help that he is a B-lister even among Darkseid's lackeys. Kailbak, Granny(and her Furies), Godfrey and DeSaad are all better known.
  4. Favorite War Movies

    Lawrence of Arabia Tora! Tora! Tora! Patton Blackhawk Down Saving Private Ryan
  5. Site Upgrade

    It looks really nice. Thank you for your time and hard work sir.
  6. Opioid crisis?

    Here's the most recent stories I can find that show the problem. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/ex-dea-agent-opioid-crisis-fueled-by-drug-industry-and-congress/ https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjxqIHl95DXAhVJYyYKHSdpDR0QtwIIJjAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D5pdPrQFjo2o&usg=AOvVaw1TtT31iiOpVfnAZHk3bc7w While I do not know any current addicts, the real problem I've seen is that the distribution is so mundane. You have seniors with legitimate prescriptions selling their drugs for $5-10 per pill. Lately, the television ads have just as many for addiction clinics as ambulance chasers.
  7. Fear the HFFL!

    I cannot second this sentiment.
  8. Fear the HFFL!

    I might have played him if he had given any sign of life before last night. And of course. he exceeds his point total for the rest of the season's games combined in the first game I sit him.
  9. Political Discussion Thread (With Rules)

    I've never thought 43 was a good president(not a bad person, just unqualified for the office). But his speech shows that he was morally fit for it and further crystallizes my opinion of Trump. Trump is a disgrace to our country and dangerous to our future. I never thought the day would come when a sitting president would lead attacks on freedom of expression and freedom of the press. Sadly. I expect things to get worse before they get better. My only hope is that a Russian smoking gun is found so he and his cronies can be sent to prison for the rest of their lives.
  10. Marvel's The Inhumans

    I just wish they'd teach Black Bolt to read and write. So many issues would be mitigated by texting or just using a pen and paper.
  11. New Series--The Orville

    Funny, if you check my later post(271), I thought I said the same. Nanotech requires that the proper materials be at hand, the transporter just needs some in computer memory.
  12. 2017-18 NFL Thread

    They ruled it a catch with a fumble before he crossed the goal line that he did not recover in bounds(supposedly he regained control of the ball after striking the pylon). Now if that is what happened then the ruling is correct but that's not what the ruling on the field was, and unless there is a replay angle not available to the public I don't see clear evidence to overturn the call.
  13. HKA & added Str?

    The official rule is that you can add all your STR. There is an optional rule to restrict it to adding only STR equal to the weapon base in 6e that I am not sure is present in CC.
  14. New Series--The Orville

    There are ways to do replication thru nanotech and that could be the way The Orville Universe functions. The ST transporter is matter energy conversion and energy matter conversion controlled by a ridiculous amount of computer processing and data storage.
  15. New Series--The Orville

    Taken to just a little extrapolation, there's very few problems that replicator technology can't solve. Infinite resources means that the only constraints are how quickly you can build more replicators and distribute them. There will still be philosophical and religious arguments but no economic stress to escalate any conflicts.
