get off your ass, or you'll regret it.

tl:dr, get off your ass?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2018 - 07:45 PM)

Nice.

@  Nevermore : (25 May 2018 - 05:20 PM)

Unless I decide to do a voluntary Saturday shift.

@  Nevermore : (25 May 2018 - 05:20 PM)

I can stay up 2 or 3 AM, sleep as long as I want, do my chores, go to work, and look forward to two days of weekend, every week until the end of the year.

@  Nevermore : (25 May 2018 - 05:19 PM)

Working permanent late shift is awesome, despite the weird looks my coworkers give me.

@  Nevermore : (25 May 2018 - 05:18 PM)

Especially now that I have every Saturday off.

@  Nevermore : (25 May 2018 - 05:18 PM)

I'm so glad I have a guaranteed five-day work week.

@  Paladin : (25 May 2018 - 01:58 PM)

first day off in ages & I wound up baked. and not in the fun way...

@  Telly : (24 May 2018 - 10:22 PM)

one thing im worried about if i get it is im gonna love it and then ill be lost in gundam models lol

@  Telly : (24 May 2018 - 10:21 PM)

ill have to keep an eye on that one

Bandai just released a new Zaku in the Origin line, looks like the new definitive at the HG price point

@  Liege : (24 May 2018 - 12:42 PM)

@Telly try the HG rather than the RG, there are a ton of great Zaku variants that are doable for beginners

If there is an economic system, somebody will find a way to abuse it for personal gain.

@  Otaku : (23 May 2018 - 01:18 PM)

@unluckiness I believe you are correct, but I didn't feel like looking it up so I didn't want to mention it. If that is the case, it isn't "capitalism" anyway. Maybe crapitalism (crony capitalism).

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2018 - 08:46 AM)

Like richard said, it's not inherently less healthy than table sugar. It's unhealthy in how it's in everything, leading to increased calorie intake that we don't even realize.

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2018 - 08:43 AM)

Also you try organizing a boycott of Coca frigging cola and see how far you get. Not to mention all the other processed foods that also make use of it that aren't as notorious for it

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2018 - 08:42 AM)

I believe the US government subsidizes corn farmers to such a degree that corn is stupidly cheap, making corporations lean towards it far more

@  Otaku : (23 May 2018 - 08:41 AM)

@SHIELD Agent 47 If HFCS was "caused" by capitalism, all it takes to solve it is people NOT buying it. As is, products that use actual sugar and countless alternative sweeteners are available. At least for big brands like Coca-Cola. ;)

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2018 - 08:40 AM)

And if doing so means that eventually is longer and less filled with complications, well, that junk food had better be the best junk ever

@  Otaku : (23 May 2018 - 08:39 AM)

@Paladin Quality of life. So many things I enjoyed as a kid have caused (or at least aggravated) health issues later in life. By later, I mean it started in my mid-20's. XP

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2018 - 08:39 AM)

THere's a difference between having some and constantly stuffing your face with calories.

@  Paladin : (23 May 2018 - 08:33 AM)

we all die eventually. why not enjoy the stuff that tastes good in the time we have?

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2018 - 08:26 AM)

HFCS is never good for you any way. It's nothing but monosaccharides basically

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 May 2018 - 11:32 PM)

*sigh* Wouldn't be that much of a problem if not for Western capitalism.

@  RichardT1977 : (22 May 2018 - 05:45 PM)

The only thing that makes HFCS more unhealthy than sugar is its lower cost.

@  Telly : (22 May 2018 - 03:20 PM)

looking at a video review and seeing all the tiny parts makes me think twice about it anyway

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2018 - 03:04 PM)

You should probably ask in the Gundam thread.

@  Telly : (22 May 2018 - 02:52 PM)

is this any good? i dont know about gundam models but want a good zaku https://www.amazon.c...0C7D2WQ09A9A9MZ

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 May 2018 - 12:33 PM)

Dammit, and I was just about to hook up this Coke IV directly to my bloodstream, too. Killjoy :p

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 May 2018 - 12:28 PM)

Recommendation: if you're going to fill your body up with junk food, try real sugar instead of HFCS.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 May 2018 - 12:10 PM)

Not so much that it's worth the extra money to buy it in glass bottles all the time (I think the most you can get is a 6-pack of Coke in glass bottles around here, and it's signifcantly more expensive than 6 plastic), but every once in a while it's nice to drink from an old-fashioned bottle

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 May 2018 - 12:08 PM)

Personally, I find they also tend to taste better out of a glass bottle compared to the plastic ones used most of the time

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2018 - 11:27 AM)

None that I know of, but it's a neat fact. Sodas in glass bottles stay carbonated.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2018 - 11:00 AM)

what vending machines still use glass???

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2018 - 10:54 AM)

And it won't lose carbonation if it's a properly sealed glass bottle.

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 May 2018 - 10:51 AM)

The drink is safe to drink for a good while after, the expiration date seems to apply to how "good" it will be. Usually the carbonation gives out before anything starts growing or it becomes unsafe to consume

@  Paladin : (22 May 2018 - 10:31 AM)

out of curiosity, how solid are the expiration dates on soft drinks?

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 May 2018 - 10:25 AM)

Sure does feel like they are shoring themselves up against losing a significant source of revenue...

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 May 2018 - 10:25 AM)

So I guess Hasbro is going to be making Overwatch toys now

@  Otaku : (19 May 2018 - 02:17 PM)

@TM2-Megatron Yeah, it is like @TheMightyMollusk says. The catch is that usually means they can contain beef, and I confirmed it by pushing my luck. XD So... yeah, if going to the theater was about watching the film, it might be worth potentially resting on the balls of my feet while technically sitting in the chair, but put it all together... and I just wait to watch it at home. Oh, and ticket prices, always ticket prices.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2018 - 10:24 AM)

woot woot! Korean barbeque for dinner!

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 May 2018 - 05:51 AM)

It's meat scraps. Whatever's left over from cutting up the more choice cuts.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 May 2018 - 11:26 PM)

Well, the hot dogs Cineplex has (pretty much our only big theatre chain) around here are quite good, but I have no idea of the composition, and honestly, it's probably better that way.

@  Otaku : (18 May 2018 - 10:01 PM)

@TM2-Megatron In my case, shouldn't risk the hot dogs, either. Maybe if they are guaranteed to contain NO beef (can't digest it anymore >_<).

@  Waspinator : (18 May 2018 - 08:12 PM)

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 01:18 PM)

What a world we live in where we can actually reasonably speculate that Hourman might be in a live action tv show.


This year is his 75th anniversary too, so it took long enough. I do wonder which version they'd do. I assume Rick (just a great grandson now), but with Ivo being involved I don't feel I can quite rule out Hourman III, even though Arrowverse Ivo wasn't quite into that like the comics (or not so far, I'm still finishing up S2). Rex would be possible, but they're already drowning in scientist heroes, so I figure Rick would be the most likely.

Dr Mid-Nite would also be perfect. Never been done as Live-Action, he's a rarity in that he's ACTUALLY a doctor, which would come in super-handy for everyone else. I'm talking about the modern version, Dr Pieter Cross, not the original. Using the modern version also means they can play around with a possible love triangle plot, as in the comics Dinah dated Dr Mid-Nite for a large chunk of the time while Oliver was dead. He's also a pretty cool looking character.

Here's the character info from casting calls. Spoiler material, I guess, though it's only descriptions, no names.


One does sound like Kendra Saunders, but I don't know if that'd be possible. Hawkman on Smallville was pretty bad. The wings were terrible. I wonder if she'd make it onto Arrow and hook up with Roy. IF that is her. Description fits perfectly, but it fits just as perfectly for Wildcat II. Wouldn't have thought of her except for Scav mentioning her in the Arrow thread. I'd say she's the far likelier candidate.

There's also a line from Caity Lotz, if you consider that a spoiler too.

My guesses would be Booster Gold, Hawkgirl, and Static.

 

I'm still not sure what the deal is with Caity Lotz.

Except, Booster was on Smallville, so he violates the "never on tv" clue.

 

DC might not own the rights to Static anymore...the whole Milestone 2.0 thing is throwing questions that way.

 

I've seen some speculation that the latina woman could be be Yolanda Montez, Wild Cat II, or Bea Decosta, Fire.

I don't put much stock in the "never been on TV before" thing. It seemed like an offhand comment from the network, rather than from Berlanti or Johns. Keep in mind there are probably going to be a lot more DCU characters on this too, it's not necessarily these three that would fit that bill.

I think the other live-action Static project is probably more of a problem. It seems different to the other movie/TV examples to me, although this would be a more mature version of the character.

It's sad that so few characters come to mind, even with such a generic description.

It could be Black Lightning, as that one site mused. John Stewart would fit that general description too.

I still think its Fury. By day she tries to fit in with society and by night she's Fury.

 

Although Fire would be pretty awesome.

As Fire has been one of my favorite characters (what can I say, it was the Adam Hughes JLI which introduced me to a lot of DC), I'd like to see her, but really only if they go the all out glamourous super model/super spy version of her, which would likely not fly in todays...culture.

Why wouldn't it fit? Fire would fill the ethnic quota too. She'd also fit the idea of it being a lgbt related team of heroes.

The only problem is having both her and Firestorm being redundantly flame themed ish.

He's talking about how she was a bit of a Latina / Brazilian stereotype.

Hehe, I remember the sexual innuendo Hawkgirl Shayera made over Flash mooning over Fire in that JLU ep. Something like "... You like her? I heard she is... Brazilian...". and they were glancing at Fire while she was together with Ice, haha.

And im just joking about the new team being gay in-universe. It was really more about the actors involved, sorry.

I guess it's pretty lucky that they already established Jason Rusch, wonder if that guy's available now.

I'm actually not that torn up about that. Robbie Amell is a fairly limited actor, and I don't think he's been all that great as Ronnie. If they end up going with Jason in the new show I'm fine with that.

They didn't say he was left off for any bad reason just that they 'can't say why'. Perhaps a plot point?
