    MCUniverse- Captain Marvel Rises!

    Lies. That was actually Kathleen Kennedy pretending to be Kevin Feige. Didn't you hear? She's trying to ruin the MCU now too.

    Favorite books/series about elves?

    The Complete Book of Elves is the only answer here.

    New Neal Stephenson Novel: “Fall: or Dodge in Hell”

    Which is weird because the blurb (I know it's not fair to judge a book entirely on its blurb, but this is the internet and I'm damn well going to make hasty judgments on as little information as possible!) makes it sound like there's very little connection between the two books other than some characters. Agree 100%. Hm, I did not know that. It certainly puts things in perspective though I can't imagine a Stephenson book entirely dedicated to the Islamic stuff unless it was more interesting, nuanced, and far less bland and stereotypical.

    MCUniverse- Captain Marvel Rises!

    How dare you not fully think through the ramifications of your knee jerk joke! You, sir, are banned from the internet henceforth! Spoiler for Far From Home

    MCUniverse- Captain Marvel Rises!

    For what it's worth, my rural, podunk high school did have school-sponsored trips to South America back in the late 90's when I was a student. I did not get to go because I was, you know, poor but it was a thing so I can certainly believe that a more upper-class school would be able to do trips to Europe instead.

    New Neal Stephenson Novel: “Fall: or Dodge in Hell”

    What an odd choice for a sequel. But that's only because I thought it was easily one of his worst, most unfocused books (and that's really saying something considering most of his books are in desperate need of some good editing). Maybe it sold really, really well and I just wasn't aware?

  12. I'll do so only when Trump officially announces our victory from the deck of a aircraft carrier while wearing a flight suit. Because, as we all know, once that happens then it's true.
  13. I'm on windows 10 as well and boot manager never comes up as an option for me. It just automatically boots into windows. Have you tried messing around with the boot order of your HDs in BIOS? It could be that your non-ssd hd is set to load before the ssd and might be causing the computer to fail in booting windows correctly.
  14. Clearly, you have the biggest and best brain of us all.

    US Politics: In Through the Out Door

    Trump's taxes won't do shit, even if all they amount to is an old, greasy napkin with the words "I never paid no taxes, also I totally colluded with Russia! Suck it America!" written in crayon. His base won't care, Republican lawmakers won't care, and most non-insane conservatives will probably find a way to rationalize it away. It'll take something truly calamitous to peel away much of his support, like a faltering economy, and even then I wouldn't be so sure.
