    Thats a man that knows how to draw an angry woman. I'm pretty sure every one of us has seen that look in the bottom panel. That's how you tell a story

    Look at the dents in her bracelets!

    This is the only book (so far) that I have been willing to buy the Absolute Edition. The art is just fantastic.

    Likewise. And Darwyn’s index made it doubly worth the purchase.

    Also (at least when I bought it) the Absolute Edition was only $45. a fantastic deal.

    I've read this story a few times and I never noticed that.

    Me, either.

    Now I need to check if later, when she changes costumes, if she's buffed them out.

    I'm starting to feel like "fanboy" should be treated like the "n-word": only we can use it.

    I haven't seen a single mainstream review of Pacific Rim that didn't use the term.

    What happens when one plays a country song backwards?

    One is released from prison, stops drinking, the dog and the best pal Jack come back to life, the first and second wife return home and the pick-up truck works again.

    I've started playing Final Fantasy Tactics for the first time since the 1997/1998. It is still awesome. I also recieved a used copy of FFT Strategy Guide today so I'm pretty excited. You have to have one of those to help with the job classes. My favorite class from the old days was Monk with Equip Armor and Move+2; that is a quick moving whirling tank of death.

    If I could find a functional old late DOS machine that would run it, I'd still be playing Master of Magic.

    Yes, but we spell it 'phanboi' so it isn't offensive.

    Me: Yo, fabo, whassup!
    WetRats: You check out da Rios workin' the exhibitor hall? Man, that guy is my FABO!
    Me: You know it, man!
    Outsider: Heh...hey guys. Are you two fanboys looking forward to the meetup in Hall H?

    (Silence)

    Me: Why you gotta use that word?
    WetRats: Yeah, man.
    Outsider: Um...but...
    Me: It's OUR word, man! We're taking it BACK from you people!
    WetRats: Don't be comin' in here with your 'fanboy' when you AIN'T one!!!

    Wow.

    That's non-sequitur-y as all get-out.

    Well-played!

    I clicked on a sidelink in that article and discovered Jenny McCarthy is one of the hosts of The View. She's come a long way from Singled Out, and amazingly she is still a pretty lady.

    I would say the trick to a la carte cable is having a minimum purchase amount. You can choose what channels you want, but in increments of 10-20-30 tiers. Maybe have each cost $20-$40-$60 respectively. With a lock-in requirement (your picks remain there for three months and there's a fee to change them) and the ability to switch out channels quarterly without penalty.

    I could almost get behind that, but I'm not sure if there's even 10 channels they could offer I'd want. HBO, ESPN...and that's about it... :)

    And a pretty dangerous advocate for the anti-immunization movement. Should make for some interesting discussions once the topic comes up.

    Does anyone else think Trinity War looks a lot like Civil War?

    I knew she was anti-immunization (I remember watching something on CNN when she was promoting one of her autism books) but I had no clue she was basically the face of the movement. The more you know, right.

    Whoa whoa whoa...that would mean that one company was taking a successful idea from another company, repackaging it, and attempting to profit off of it...I just can't believe that would happen
    [-X

    Actually...yeah they seem pretty much the same. I would like DC to reboot/retcon titles and call it Trinity Crisis.

    Reading a Legion of Super Heroes story from 1963...Satan girl (yes Satan girl) battles the Legion of Super Pets. That is Silver Age Goodness. =D>

    Am I the only person left who uses the word "groovy" unironically?

    I have been known to drop a “groovy” on occasion. Not often, mind, but once in a rare while when the mood strikes.

  • WetRatsWetRats Posts: 6,314
    "Drop a groovy" sounds like it should be a euphemism.

    Pretty dangerous and evil with her "vaccines cause autism" crap. Her and the movement she jumped in front of is literally killing people by leaving them unprotected from measles and other easily prevented diseases.

    She was just annoying when she went everywhere saying her kid was an "Indigo child" and other such new age nonsense, but now she is dangerous because people are listening to her. Giving her a platform for her lies is a bad, bad move.

    That means that are stealing ideas from the 2000's instead of the 90's at DC, so that's progress, at least.
