The best moment of the Emu War is when they brought machine guns to shoot at large groups of birds and at no point a single person in the room brought up "wait but emus are fast won't they just dodge and-"

@  Pennpenn : (20 November 2017 - 04:53 AM)

Yeah yeah, giant spiders. Look up the Great Emu War of the 1920s for instances of Australia trying to defeat it's wildlife and failing miserably.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 November 2017 - 03:41 AM)

Australia is still fighting their war on Giant Spiders.

@  Pennpenn : (20 November 2017 - 01:58 AM)

The queue is pretty long, and I don't think Australia is going anywhere any time soon.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2017 - 04:57 PM)

Trying to stay awake at work or school is a lot like using your controller when it's on low battery

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 10:31 AM)

If you're used to doing it with tabs, that makes sense. It doesn't feel weird for me.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:28 AM)

Also, it just feels weird if switching between webpages uses the same actions as switching between programs.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:21 AM)

I switch between different things on the browser and click on various plugins and stuff far more often than switching from program to program.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 10:19 AM)

Yeah I'm mostly just venting from frustration rather than trying to convince anyone, though @NotVeryNightly I will point out that the windows for the other programs I'm running are at the bottom of the screen as well.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:09 AM)

Tabs are on the top, near the address bar, browser tools, plugins and whatnot so the cursor will be there frequently anyway. Switching windows would require going down the screen.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 10:03 AM)

I mean, you do you. No bigs. You've just got a fairly unique stance that surprised me.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 09:54 AM)

I haven't seen words on the bottom bar of the screen since XP.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:13 AM)

All of which is put on the point that I don't care if people want to use tabs, I just want the option to not have them present for me on my browser.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:12 AM)

@Shrug- A quick glance at the bottom of the screen shows me what is open and where. Load times are basically so trivial that the load indicator on a tab is something I didn't notice until you mentioned it. The "which instance is playing noise" is a fair point but has basically only really been approaching meaningful for me maybe twice in all the time tabs have existed.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:07 AM)

@NotveryKnightly- I have never encountered a situation where that is true, especially given that tabs are on the other side of the screen to the other things I'm switching through.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:06 AM)

@ Nevermore- The windows at the bottom have the names of the websites on them, presuming you don't collapse them.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:08 AM)

Geez, this is reminding me of the awful pre-tab days.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:07 AM)

I can look at the tab to see if it hasn't finished loading yet. Now you can see which tab is playing sound, so no need to hunt through windows to find a video ad that started playing.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:07 AM)

And a quick glance lets me know whats open and where. No clicking multiple windows hunting for something. No waiting for some window preview to pop up (which wasn't available when tabs first started.)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Switching between tabs is way quicker than between windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:09 AM)

It's like having a clear structore with sub-directores, instead of just having all files on your computer stored in one giant directory.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:08 AM)

This way, I can switch between windows and then select the tab, instead of always trying to remember which window is for which website.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:07 AM)

I find one browser window with multiple tabs a lot easier to handle alongside other windows than multiple browser windows alongside other windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

I find multiple tabs a lot more comfortable than multiple windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

erm... no?

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 03:26 AM)

On mobile devices and whatever I understand why tabs would be a thing, but on a full desktop browser it's just- "Hey, here's a thing that's kind of like opening a new window, but objectively worse in every practical way"

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 November 2017 - 01:41 AM)

Someone remind me again: which versions of the CW Hot Spot mold did not suffer from bad hip ratcheting?

@  BlackMax : (16 November 2017 - 06:33 PM)

Holy crap I just pushed the F11 key for the first time on a keyboard since about 1994.

@  Shrug : (16 November 2017 - 01:11 PM)

tabs being wretched bs is definitely an opinion I've never seen before

@  RC85747 : (16 November 2017 - 08:25 AM)

Vivaldi lets you hide the tab bar

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2017 - 07:45 AM)

Yeah but that gets rid of everything else as well.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 November 2017 - 07:33 AM)

Hit F11 Pennpenn

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2017 - 04:15 AM)

I get that people like tabs. Fine. Whatever. I just detest the fact that most current browsers don't let you have the option of just hiding the bar away so I don't have to even think about the wretched bullshit things.

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

Does anyone know of a browser that doesn't force tabs on you? Just... any sodding browser that doesn't have tabs.

@  Telly : (16 November 2017 - 01:59 AM)

@  BlackMax : (15 November 2017 - 09:26 PM)

Yyyyyeah, that's ANOTHER one that Marvel shouldn't be recasting. I think J.K. Simmons even said on Stern recently that he wants to play the role again.

Not only that he wants to, he even hinted that there'd been some talk about it on some level.

 

So if Sony's not averse to reusing any previous actors, they could do a helluva lot worse than sticking with a proven favorite who's also picked up an Oscar nomination in the meantime.

I'm really curious how Civil War will work. To be in anyway like the source material you need a certain population of Super powered folk in the Universe. Adding Spidey and Black Panther should help but they really need more, and that's a LOT of stuff to intro in one film AND continue the character story lines from Cap 2...

ZacWilliam, there are lots of ways they can make it work I'm just curious what form it ends up taking..:

I still want it to be as little like the source material as possible.

 

Just "Cap and Tony disagree on something", now with extra added "and Spidey in the middle". Beyond that, the movie could be about the three of them trying to order lunch.

MCU Civil War will result in Tony coming up behind Bruce and pushing him down some stairs yelling "PARKOUR!"

 

Spidey, traveling by, misinterprets the comment and spends the rest of the movie paranoid that Stark has discovered his secret.

We already know from the interviews Feige did around the announcement that the disagreement is going to be over whether the super heroes have to answer to the government/authorities.

But yeah, it's certainly shaping up to be a busy film. If I'm remembering correctly, all the following have been confirmed for it: Cap, Iron Man, Black Panther, the Falcon, Black Widow, the Winter Soldier, Crossbones, Zemo, and now Spidey.

How would I do Civil War?

I'd suggest in A2 that superheroes were becoming a bigger thing and there are more. Then I'd start Civil War with some version of the Stanford Incident ( I'd prefer not to kill the real New Warriors though cause I LIKE them). Iron Man responds by thinking we need to get all Super Powered folk on sides as a Government sponsored Avengers Army. Cap thinks that's a terrible idea given how Hydra turned SHEILD into. Some actual Villian escallates thing and the disagreement turns into actual combat between two teams. Cap gets Black Panther. Spidey starts on IM side then tries to make peace petween them. Eventually they work together enough to take down the villain ( Baron Zemo?) and that leads to Iron Mans view triumphant for the moment and Cap arrested.

I fully realize that's not as awesome and intricate and surprising a plot as Cap2. That was a really great film. Honestly I don't know how to make Civil War into that good a story. I would have prefered their fake tease of "Serpent Society".

-ZacWilliam, the Serpent Society is just so fun and campy if done in their wonderful themed costumes. Plus Diamondback.

I'd almost suspect that with how late Civil War likely is in pre-production (got to get it out by May of next year), that Spidey's role will be akin to an extended cameo/minor role (like Phil Coulson in Iron Man 1) simply as a precaution from Sony dicking around with things.

 

Personally, if I was doing this and if Sony is really game to leave the creative side to Marvel, I'd do a "transition" film in 2017.  Start the film with the Peter Parker we all know and love, and pull a "Metal Gear Solid 2" and flip focus to a Miles Morales based Spider-Man film.  To me, that'd be a GREAT way to to cover most basis: the companies get the recognizable Spidey for marketing, Marvel/Sony get to do a new origin film without retreading the same material for a third time, Marvel gets "their own" Spider-Man to integrate with the greater MCU and it would help distance this version from the prior installments both in time and by giving audiences a "new" Spider-Man, something fresh for the films.

 

But that might be a little too optimistic.

What's interesting about Spidey in the MCU is the fact that most of the heroes (and villains) we've seen so far don't maintain secret identities. From the end of the first movie, Stark was very openly Iron Man, and we've watched the impact that has had in the lives of those around him. Everyone knows Steve Rogers is Captain America. Heck, Barton and Romanov barely even have codenames.

 

With Spider-Man and Daredevil we'll be seeing the seeds of 'masked' heroes that spins the MCU version of the Civil War story. It's an interesting dynamic to add to the mix.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

iirc, MArvel has been pushing at getting Spidey for Civil War since they decided to do it. I would theorize that he has role in it, and that if it wasn't him they'd use another siimilar 'young idealistic hero' to fill the basic role.
