I could handle going back to not existing. x.x;

@  Bass X0 : (19 November 2017 - 01:14 PM)

Life is the brief recess we get from not existing before going back to not existing.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 November 2017 - 01:10 PM)

Nah.. Life is simply the precursor to death.

@  Bass X0 : (19 November 2017 - 12:41 PM)

Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 November 2017 - 08:37 AM)

You won't be at school or work anymore... so mitigated success.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2017 - 05:21 PM)

Just don't try to plug yourself into an outlet. It won't end well.

@  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)

@  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)

@  MEDdMI : (15 November 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Do you still have those drawings?

@  BlackMax : (15 November 2017 - 06:31 PM)

I think lesbian ninjas is just an unmitigated good idea. *shrug*

@  Strafe : (15 November 2017 - 04:05 PM)

"Someone" being me. No mystery to it, I used to draw a lot during class when I was in high school. I came up with lesbian ninjas, which were a specialized team of assassins with amazing hair and impeccable style. I scanned some of my drawings and mentioned them a few times on the ezboard 17 years ago, and people seemed to like the idea.

@  Copper Bezel : (15 November 2017 - 01:05 PM)

Thanks in any case!

@  Copper Bezel : (15 November 2017 - 01:05 PM)

Oh, wow. That is ages ago. 

@  Telly : (15 November 2017 - 01:03 PM)

ages ago meaning when the spark was still on ezboard

@  Telly : (15 November 2017 - 01:02 PM)

i think maybe it was part of a title of a movie someone posted ages ago and the "lesbian ninja" part stood out and people just latched on to it. please note this is possibly totally and completely wrong cause my memory is terrible anymore

@  Copper Bezel : (15 November 2017 - 12:11 PM)

I don't think it's a fandom thing, I think it's an Allspark thing. Or that's been my perception. Mayhem has some lesbian ninja regulars now but I think the reference is much older. = ] 

@  Robowang : (15 November 2017 - 11:02 AM)

Who knows. I always thought it was stupid.

Lest Batman v Superman (and rearguing Man of Steel) eat up all of the DCCU discussion, Suicide Squad is currently filming, and a lot of people think it might end up setting the tone for the universe even more than Batman v Superman.

 

David Ayer (End of Watch, Training Day, Fury) is writing and directing.

 

It stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, and Jared Leto as The Joker.

 

Common, Scott Eastwood, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jim Parrack, Adam Beach, and Ike Barinholtz have been cast as yet to be revealed characters. 

 

Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor and Ben Affleck's Batman are rumored to cameo.

 

The first image of the Joker from the movie was released on the character's 75th anniversary. The internet has opinions.

Joker, in every incarnation, has been drastically different from previous ones. Caesar Romero's is different from Dick Sprang/Bill Finger's Joker, who was different from Bob Kane's, who is different from Burton and Nicholson's, who is different from Kevin Michael Richardson's, all of whom are worlds apart from Mark Hamill's quintessential iteration of the character.

 

And all of those are valid interpretations of the Joker, because he is so chaotic... Jared Leto is a talented, dedicated actor who is showing recently he can play a fairly broad range, so I am optimistic about his Joker. From just this one image, I sense the character will be a mix of Alex from A Clockwork Orange, Woody Harrelson from Natural Born Killers and maybe some Conrad Veidt for good measure.

 

What's interesting is that Task Force X has traditionally been made up of character who have been fairly well established; they often have history with each other. What's more, you have Boomerang, who's a Flash Rogue (will they maintain the Rogue Code for this one? Digger was always an outlier among the Rogues as far as following the rules is concerned); two Batman villains, and Deadshot, who has run up against literally the entire Justice League. When will this take place in the newly aligned DCCU? I think it might be neat to have some jumping around in the timeline as the movies are released. This could take place after the JLA has been established for a while... just a thought.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

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.

The timeline question is a good one. I don't think it's been plainly stated yet when this takes place in relation to Batman v Superman.

Not yet. I have to assume cast pictures will start trickling out as we get closer to SDCC since they're filming already.

Yeah, if this is similar to new 52, which it appears to be, Batman has already been a crimefighter for some time. So it makes sense that there is already a rogues gallery out there for other heroes that just aren't public yet.

Some of those announced actors are heavily rumored to be playing specific characters. Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is almost certainly playing Killer Croc, and Scott Eastwood is widely believed to be playing Steve Trevor.

That's exactly where I am with it. The other tattoos and affectations don't bother me at all. The Joker reappropriating aspects of the trashier corners of current culture (the grill, the pinky ring, the dumb Hot Topic tattoos) seems like something he would think is funny.

Exactly. I also like the parody of the "Tear drop" tattoo in a stylized J. That's very much Joker-ish.

It speaks volumes that it took this for the movie to actually get a topic here...

 

I'm still annoyed that they killed off Arrow's Deathshot because of Will Smith.

 

Joker... is weird. It's like Marilyn Manson cosplaying as the Joker. Too many weird tatoos, too.

That said, Margot Robbie will be an awesome Harley.

He doesn't look like The Joker.  He looks like a Joker copycat.  Some guy who's stealing the Joker's iconography and gimmickry.  I don't care for it, but I'm still willing to give the movie a shot.  Hopefully his acting will win me over.

I'm fairly sure he's the real Joker, but if one were to assume this is a Batman who's been around for 20 or so years, then this is presumably a Joker who's been active just as long, and has maybe been in and out of prison several times (which could account for some of the affectations). It could be an interesting angle if, in this version, he actually went to some sort of supermax prison, rather than just Arkham. Can you imagine the kind of cult that would be built up around the Joker if he were in the general population of a maximum security prison full of murderers and drug kingpins?

 

(Just to clarify, I have no plot information that backs up any of that, I'm just thinking out loud.)

I'm kind of hoping all those fake teeth in front came about because Batman punches him really really hard.

 

Bonus points if you actually flash back to the punch that knocked most of em out.

Yeah, a lot of people have theorized that's why he's wearing those. Batman's been punching him in the face for 20 years and it took its toll.

 

(Also, jesus, Jared Leto is 43 and Ben Affleck is 42. That is not god damn fair.)

Also, this is Joker shirtless. The majority of the tattoos will be covered I would assume.

 

Even if they weren't, this is hardly the first reimagination of the Clown Prince of Crime. He honestly looks like a Hollywood-ized version of the Joker from The Batman.
