  1. Are we going to a-veil ourselves of bridle puns now?
  2. If you're going to drive 200+ mph, are you going to bother trying to stop at lights?
  3. I don't disagree with anything that's been said. There were a lot of deaths in Aquaman, including some that he could have prevented. It occurred to me today while discussing the movie with a coworker that it wasn't the dark way the previous movies were shot that bugged me so much . . . it was that they didn't seem to offer any hope for a world better than what was portrayed in the movie. Wonder Woman (the character, and therefore the movie) seemed to provide a bit of hope that the whole world wasn't just "kill or be killed". One of the main themes in Aquaman is that he's providing hope that the surface world and Atlantis can get along, if not actually cooperate. *That's* why I liked this movie.
  4. The DVD for Aquaman? Yes, definitely! To me, this was easily the best DC movie so far. Wonder Woman was a step in the right direction and Aquaman really moved the whole franchise away from the dark, grim look that they'd been using.
  5. All patients get a free cat scan . . . even before the lab work begins.
  6. Isn't that how they got the different flavors of Diet Coke?
  7. In my family, that would be considered a completely legitimate question.
  8. I have a Ruger Mark III target with the bull barrel like that picture . . . it's a nice pistol. Disassembly and reassembly isn't the easiest, but I think there were some design changes for the Mark IV that make it much easier. I've shot a couple of the Ruger SR22s, belonging to my mother and one of my friends. It's smaller and lighter than the Mark III and shoots well, but might not be quite as accurate. If you have indoor range close to you that have policies similar to the ranges here, you might be able to rent each and shoot them a bit before you buy one. You might also want to look at the Browning Buck Mark series pistols. They're similar in size and shape to the Mark III but somewhat simpler to take down and clean. I also have one of them; I really don't see a lot of difference in how the Browning and my Ruger shoot.
  9. Actually, yes. I'm not a great marksman, but I have a little Browning .22 lever action rifle that I can put rounds through quickly and on target. I'm not quite as fast with it as with my Ruger semi-auto 10-22, but I'm at least as accurate out to 25 yards. I've also got a Browning 20-gauge pump shotgun that I can shoot quickly enough to keep up with most semi-autos for five shots . . . a couple of former coworkers were amazed that I could fire so quickly with it, but I've been shooting that particular shotgun for over 30 years. I carried it when quail hunting in my teens and learned to be fast with it in the brush. We didn't have enough clay pigeons in the air at any one time to see if I was hitting much, though--I was simply shooting for speed when I was demonstrating it.
  10. I don't imagine it's all that great for the people whose houses have been destroyed, either.
