    MCUniverse - Nick hath no Fury like an MRA troll

    Uhh..quite possibly? I don't remember. I do think the whole magic=science explanation seemed very hand-wavy at the time, but, comic books! Though Vision's existence alone is clear proof that the power of the stones is compatible with physical sciences. Not to mention all the other examples of hard and computer science interference and manipulation of the power of the stones throughout the MCU.

    MCUniverse - Nick hath no Fury like an MRA troll

    I'm struggling to imagine an exciting superhero movie plot based on this, but, as we learned in Thor 2, what we call magic is really just science. So, couldn't Shuri, Stark, Banner, Vision etc put their collective expertises together and science up a new gauntlet?

    I don't see that as very likely. Rocket, Thor, and even Captain Marvel all have ties to places other than Earth that got dusted. I mean, bringing all the earthlings back would be better than nothing, but I don't see the non-earth based Avengers being okay with such a half-assed fix.

    Hello from Eurocommieland

    It's not funny! At least, not as funny as it would have been in the old days. This Board is nothing like it used to be!

  7. You probably don't want to click the link. There's a brief trigger warning under the article heading, and I'll go ahead and give one here: Article includes graphic descriptions of sexual assault, ensuing grief/trauma/depression, unwanted pregnancy/delivery, major birth defects and infant death.

    Strange Things That Just... Do It For You

    I like being able to make exact change, but I don't think I've ever had only the exact right amount. What always freaks me out is when the total on my cart full of groceries comes out to an even dollar amount. And no amount of logic, math, or statistics will make that Truman Show/glitch in the Matrix feeling go away. "That will be $186 dollars, sir" *shivers*
