  1. Past hour
  2. Same. heal toys hurt rats
  3. Man that is pretty dead on. Add in that Kilmonger was there, just at the end, when BP battled Klaw/Thunderlips, as was Clubber, who was in the crowd observing. Even stranger when you realize Micheal B Jordan played Killmonger, and Apollo's son in Creed. Saw BP the other day and liked most of it, thought the first challenge scene at the waterfall was just silly as hell. Thought it was pretty good and will see any sequel that follows.
  4. You want facts, do you? Let's start with these then. Your initial argument was not that odds for becoming a professional athlete are slim and that education is important. If it was, we wouldn't discuss about it since we all agree with that. Your initial argument was that, and I quote: "athletics should take a back seat to academics". Such a blanket statement is condescending and plain wrong. Different kids have different talents and there's nothing wrong with kids being happy doing different stuff. Another fact - the odds of making it as a pro athlete are not the same for a kid of LeBron's talent, physical abilities and work ethics and for some less gifted kid. Why should someone force LeBron (or Bryant or Garnett) into college for four years where they'll dominate their sport, get by their college courses on count of their athleticism and lose millions of dollars they could've made in the NBA during those four years? What is the upside of that? No one denies that not all kids can do that just like not all kids can get a PhD in astrophysics, whether through lack of ability or desire.
  5. Sansa to Craster's Keep. Where she can learn to do housework.
  6. Big Walder Frey to House Martell of Dorne. The boy is already a player. It could be a good match between BWF and Prince Doran since both are schemers.
  7. My wife is addicted to watching this. It's become a running joke in our houselhold. At anytime of day you will could one of us randomly yell out HARD!!!! REALLY REALLY HARD!!!!! from anywhere in the house. Glad it's winter because if the windows were open and someone was walking by they would think we were freaks!
  8. Jon is the wight wolf after all. I hope he does become a wight and stay that way for the rest of his "life."
  9. I just hate Jon Snow.
  10. USA women’s hockey takes down Canada for the gold!
  11. I'd disagree, but as JNR noted earlier we also need to consider the nature of friendship. So far as the Pact is concerned it divided up the land. We get this bit, you get that bit and so long as nobody crosses the line we're friendly; cross it and its red war. Luwin says that in time the First Men took up the gods of the wood. Was that a gradual process or was it the price for intervention - a price which men eventually revolted against?
  12. Today
  13. The impression I get is that Winterfell was built around an existing tree rather than first building the place and then planting a sapling in the middle of it - they tried that with the eyrie of course, but its a bit unique - and it failed.
  14. The men's slalom was a big surprise. The two favourites have been so far ahead this season I thought that everyone else would be fighting for bronze. However neither Hirscher or Kristofferson got a medal.
  15. Ohhhhh DUH. I really need to re watch Robocop.
  16. i think that the IB would tell them that if they hope to win the war than they better take out a bigger loan than Stannis did. They may tweak the interest rates in the spirit of good business, maybe. The IB makes money by lending it, after all.
  17. I guess it is Starz, I am watching on Netflix and couldn't remember. The blood and sex doesn't bother me as much as I haven't latched on to a character yet, none seem likeable to me, and the plot kind of sucks. I will give it a full season to see if I like it, thanks for responding.
  18. That too, but I was talking about Ed.
  19. Just goes to show you all the bitching about younger people is bollocks. Also that despite all the technological advancement we really haven't changed much in the past 2000 years.
  20. Yeah, it may have been a dystopian corporate run hellhole, but at least they had cool robots.
  21. OMG! That is hilarious! I am just like the annoying visitor in the novel! I have never heard of the novel, I will have to read it! What’s it about? That’s a bit embarrassing for me. I might fallen for what the novel’s use of the quote is. Juvenal has a lot of well known phrases, “panem et circenses” or “bread and circuses” being the best known. They are all part of larger satires and meant to be in a certain context but always so poignant even on their own. I do like the one you have. In real life, with Latin, it was meant to be written in a really strict and formal style that no one really spoke. It was considered poor form to write colloquially or to rhyme in poetry and all sorts of things. So I thought maybe the quote in your signature was a deliberate irony of kind of slightly changing the Latin to deviate away from “classical” and into “vulgar” of a real person. I will always remember I class I took on extant examples of common Latin. Translators flocked to Pompeii, excited about all of the exposed graffiti and what it could pertain. Almost all of the messages were - I kid you not - things like, “I did a poo here and also here,” “I slept with a barmaid,” “So-and-so is a cry baby,” “Visit so-and-so’s house for a sexy night.”
  22. it rules how we have reached a place where over the top 80s dystopian satire is unrecognizable as such because it appears so normal, and are rapidly approaching the point where like, robocop seems quaint and naively optimistic
  23. It's not even a new disgusting idea. I remember hearing that a lot right after Sandy Hook.
  24. Ok, I'm cheating, exactly what I was complaining about a thread ago. But, I don't care, this whole idea of just arm the teachers is just so damn disgusting. What an absolutely grotesque idea. What a friggin' sad idea.
  25. yes i’m sure that’s it
  26. Thinking on this..... I'd say BP oddly enough (up until the battle) is much more derivative of Rocky 3 (And whatever Rocky 3 was I'm sure derivative of). Let's see.... T'challa/Rocky beats a tough guy (Awesome Barking Guy/Apollo), becomes King/Champ. First combat as King/Champ, protagonist fails/loses in a situation that ultimately doesn't matter (Klaw/Thunderlips). Gets challenged by badass new guy on scene, Killmonger/Clubber. Head Priest/Coach advises not to take the fight, then when fight is taken Head Priest/Coach dies and T'Challa/Rocky gets their ass kicked. Then T'Challa/Rocky goes to recuperate/train with the guy he defeated at the start (ABG/Apollo). Comes back and defeats the new guy becomes King/Champ again. The real question, will BP solve an equivalent to communism in the sequel?
