  1. The Cabin in the Woods, Red Dawn, Snow White and the Huntsman, Star Trek Into Darkness, Rush, In the Heart of the Sea, Huntsman Again, Ghostbusters Misguided Reboot, 12 Strong, Bad Times at the El Royale, Men In Black Unnecessary Reboot. Seven years of inconsistent quality but plenty of work, on top of seven MCU films in that span.
  2. No one expects the Inquisitor Eisenhorn
  3. Hm. I had originally scheduled that day for removing all evil and misfortune from the world. But you're right, it's all about work-life balance.
  4. There really needs to be a facepalm option in the like menu.
  5. Day four of new job. Haven't screwed up yet!
  6. I read, them, in order from left to right, as "Stabbery", "Stabbery", and "Stabbery".
  7. I, too, yearn for simpler bygone days. But you’re right, the precious metal standard does nothing for the minimum wage and also cedes control of the money supply to the commodities markets.
  8. Late to the thread. Santa got my ten-year-old a Monoprice Maker Select v2 for Christmas, and we've been printing on it off and on since. Most models I get from Thingiverse, though I have also printed custom figures from desktophero3d.com when I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for premade. Hero Forge files are surely higher quality but I've never tried them since they cost money. I wouldn't dream of printing terrain on the thing simply because it's too slow. It takes 16 hours to print a Space Marine Terminator-sized figure at 0.04mm layer height for decent detail in PLA.
  9. Another win for the right. Argue about what to call the concentration camps, while toddlers remain caged. Argue about whether Trump can be labeled a racist, while his racist actions go unchecked. As a delaying tactic, fighting over labels is incredibly effective.
  10. One of the overriding themes of REH was that civilization is a corrupting and weakening influence that inevitably results in the destruction of that civilization at the hands of stronger, more straightforward men. Of course, this often came as a surprise to the "civilized" people. Magic tended to be practiced by bad guys, and moreover was often derived from evil supernatural entities. Summoned demons are a common trope; whether the summoner or summonee is in control is an open question. Armor in S&S is far less important than skill at arms--Conan seems to spend a great deal of his career half naked; he'll wear a mail shirt and hard hat if he's going to war.
  11. They’re well suited to it with their proportionally high leg strength.
  12. "A lion sleeps in the heart of every brave man." -Turkish proverb Mythic Monster or Guardian: Chaofeng, Keeper of the Inner Fire
  13. "A single feat of daring can alter the whole conception of what is possible." -Graham Greene Secondary Domain: Courage
