  1. It's been quite a while since the jackpots have gotten that high, on account of ticket sales and subsequent rollovers being depressed by COVID-19. And once again, I find myself identifying with Charlie Bucket in this exchange for Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory-- MRS. BUCKET: I wonder who the lucky ones will be. CHARLIE: Well in case you're wondering if it'll be me, it won't be. Just in case you're wondering, you can count me out. MRS. BUCKET: Charlie . . . there are a hundred billion people in this world, and only five of them will find Golden Tickets. Even if you
  2. I'll take the Fireball XL5, myself. That's the ship I qualified on when I was six years old.
  3. For low-end transactions, I was thinking debit and gift cards. Debit cards can be purchased and funded at the same store, then you can add funds whenever needed. Thing is, most debit cards have a low upper limit as to funding (the one I use has a $2000 limit) so it's not like you can put all the cash from a really big score into it at once. Gift cards are even more low-end--usually the highest one you can get is $500, but for mundane purchases they are as anonymous as cash, and easier to carry. Hope that helps.
  4. I can believe that. Just like I can believe that Paul McCartney was in a group before Wings. Bet you didn't know that, did you?
  5. I'm not sure if it's something I did or something changed with the Forum, but I find I can't post videos like everyone else. I paste the URL for the video into the field and it comes out with the video title, just as if I'd posted it as a link. Can you help me, please?
  6. Perhaps a shorter, over-the-shoulder cape would work. You know, like the Musketeers or the original Captain Marvel wear. Hope that helps.
  7. Nonononono. Traveller's Marc Miller is spelled with a "C" in the firs name as shown. Comics' Mark Millar is spelled with an "A" in the second name as shown. Marc Miller On Wikipedia Mark Millar On Wikipedia Hope that helps.
  8. Yeah? Well, this doesn't strike me as the way to get everything.
  9. At least 2020 itself found a boyfriend-- The Devil 2020 - Match.com Commercial - No more hiding! - YouTube
  10. Johnny Carson Blasts a Toy Cannon in Christmas Toys Review, 12-9-1976 - YouTube
  11. The only disappointment I had to this year was that I had made plans to go to GEN CON back in January, so I'd make sure to get all the events I wanted. As everyone here knows, of course, that didn't happen. Here's a New Year's wish that GEN CON 2021 will happen.
  12. By all rights, the way this should have ended is that Darkseid watches Santa escape, then tosses the lump of coal into a pile with al the other lumps--which by now is the size of a small mountain.
  13. Tjack, I like that first line in your rant--I may steal it and modify it for my own purposes. That said--I actually think Stark publicly revealing himself to the world as Iron Man helped his company's stock rather than hurt it. Remember after he got back from Afghanistan how he announced Stark International would no longer build weapons--that would have depressed the share value, sending it perhaps not into a death spiral, but a steady decline. Announcing himself as the first publicly active superhero since Captain America would have, I think, sent the share value through the pro
  14. I thought Johnny Thunder's thunderbolt was named Cei-U ("Say, You!")
  15. Booster Gold had Skeets, a small robot aide that floated around him. Other than that I don't know.

    Here's some space cops for ya-- Rocket Squad - Daffy Duck | SuperCartoons
  17. I will not disqualify Beavis and Butthead. Thing is, punching them in the face wouldn't do any good--you'd just have a sore hand, and they'd be that much more stupid. +1 for Gul Dukat. I remember when he killed Jadzia Dax, and stood over her and said he never meant her any harm. "LIAR!" I hissed at the screen. "You'd burn down the galaxy to get what you wanted!" Negan, from The Walking Dead. I had my own name for the character--Schicklgruber. (Yeah, I went there. Tell me I'm wrong. If you can.) It angers me that both the comic and the TV series try to redeem hi
  18. Not sure whether this is creepy, scary, or just stupid. I'm inclined to go with the last two.
