  1. Re: Order of the Stick Further evidence that 'all-natural' doesn't necessarily mean you want to put it in your mouth.
  2. Re: "Neat" Pictures I've always wanted to see someone combine the combat scenes from this film... only using the Kiss son War Machine for the soundtrack. That would be EPIC!
  3. Re: "Neat" Pictures What did that idiot car-thief-turned-attempted-assault expect the dog barking at him would do when he went after the dog's OWNER? News flash, DOGS ARE TERRITORIAL! Another dumb criminal in the news. BTW...Good dog. Gets a steak for dinner tonight!
  4. Re: "Neat" Pictures Lucas never says. But judging from the blood on the floor of the cantina after Ben chops the arm off the one dude, I'd say it's partial cauterization at best. Major blood vessels would still bleed. Which means unless a force choke is coming up real quick, Vader might be screwed.
  5. Re: "Neat" Pictures Dear god that is some SERIOUS talent!
  6. Re: "Neat" Pictures DW's gonna need some help with Megavolt this time...
  7. Re: Order of the Stick Well, them's the risks of playing the jack-of-all-trades instead of the specialist. You spend a lot of time being held in reserve for 'unforseen circumstances' because your flexibility allows you to handle a greater degree of 'unforseen' than a specialist could.
  8. Re: "Neat" Pictures But he managed to get a partial refund...
  9. Re: Interesting article about Sexism in Geek Communities Totally with you there. There is no excuse for rape, period, and I think rapists should be shot (note, I'm not a judge so I can afford to be over-the-top harsh about it). However, a prudent person takes precautions. Being able to hand an attacker his head is one heck of a precaution.
  10. Re: Make Your Own Motivational Poster Here's my horror stories with mass transit in STL. 1) 90 minutes, 75 of which are waiting at the transfer point... to go a mile and a half, which I can walk in 45 minutes. 2) On Gravois Road between Lindbergh and Highway 270, a two-mile stretch, there are no bus stops. North of Lindbergh you can take the 110 bus, South of 270 the 210 bus. To go south from Linbergh and Gravois to 270 and Gravois, you have to take the 110 NORTH. North all the way downtown, a good ten miles. Then you wait for the metro to take you to the Delmar station, 5-6 miles. Then you have to switch to the other branch of the metro which goes to the Shrewsbery station, 4-5 miles. Then you can finally catch the 210, which goes down Highway 44 to catch Highway 270 and eventually exiting onto Gravois and dropping you off after traveling a good 15 miles. To cover those two miles by mass transit, you've traveled 35 miles and taken well over two hours. Instead of just extending the 110 route to cover that section.
  11. Re: Make Your Own Motivational Poster If you go back and watch the movies, the only time intersystem travel seems to take a significant amount of time was when the Millenium Falcon had to get from Hoth to Bespin... without the main hyperdrive working. All the rest of the trips seem to be very quick - a matter of a few hours, no more than a day or two at most. It's fast enough that even fighters with minimal facilites can make interstellar trips easily and pretty regularly. For example, the flight from Naboo and Coruscant can be made on a starship that seemed more similar to a bus than to a cruise ship. This implies you won't be onboard long enough for sleeping in a chair to be a serious problem. And Naboo is apparently pretty far out on the edge of the galaxy, since you have to pass Tatooine to get there from Coruscant and the other Core Words... and Tatooine is in the "Outer Rim Territories". So if you can cover half the width of the galaxy in no more than a day but cannot make a serious attempt to explore other galaxies implies a very isolated galaxy indeed. In the Expanded Universe, the Republic (pre-Empire) sent the Outbound Flight expedition to explore a nearby galaxy... but Palpatine sabotaged it in order to kill off the six Jedi Master who were on the expedition. I would guess his motive was that these Jedi Masters would have had a lot of prestige when they returned which would have made General Order 66 very difficult to apply to them.
  12. Re: "Neat" Pictures Ah. There's the bullet trap. Looks pretty good though...
  13. Re: "Neat" Pictures Is that... actually... can it be... a breastplate for a woman without the built-in bullet trap in the middle?
  14. Re: "Neat" Pictures Goldfinger. This appears to be right before he beats the villian (granted, by a technicality) at golf and royally pisses him off. You also get to see Oddjob's fancy hat at work too... EDIT: Ninja'd!
