@  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

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 May 2018 - 01:18 PM)

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

@  RichardT1977 : (24 May 2018 - 11:02 AM)

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)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (18 May 2018 - 10:10 AM)

Urkomisch!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (18 May 2018 - 10:10 AM)

@Nevermore First time I have ever heard of this, but it sounds awesome!

@  Arazyr : (18 May 2018 - 08:39 AM)

We did that amongst ourselves in German class in college. We just called it "Germish", though.

The beauty of this set up is they can "secret wars" anyone back whenever they want, for years to come. Need 616 Wolverine back? Oh he showed up in battlworld but Doom, or Magneeto or someone captured him and put him in stasis, and he just now escaped.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

Squadron Supreme is happening! We've got Dr. Spectrum from the Great Society, Supreme Power's Nighthawk, New Universe's Blur, Thundra, and Hickman's Hyperion.

 

There's a character I don't recognize offhand but it could be Sif?

 

EDIT: It could be Battleworld Zarda. Hmm.

The post-SW Hulk has been...well, not revealed, but guessed, with a pretty high probability of accuracy. I suppose it was sort of obvious once you know Greg Pak is writing it, but I didn't find that out till just now.

 

It's a shame, as I was really enjoying Gerry Duggan's "Doc Green" angle, and Waid's series before that. Pak's work is wildly uneven, and his previous Hulk run is a perfect example of that. "Planet Hulk" was great, but the stuff after he left the planet was pretty dire.

I love Amadeus Cho.  He's one of my favorite Marvel characters.  I really, really, don't want to read Totally Awesome Hulk Cho.  Prince of Power was already pushing it, and I was enjoying the Doc Green take.

 

I'm weird with Pak's Hulk though.  My favorite stuff was the bit with Olivetti exploring Banner as the danger kept in check by Hulk.

On the heels of the Ant-Man series ending due to Secret Wars shenanigans, the relaunch was inevitable given the movie coming out.

 

http://www.latimes.c...0625-story.html

 

Nick Spencer will continue his run with Scott Lang's company expanding from just him and Grizzly to Porcupine, the female Beetle from Spencer's spectacular Superior Foes of Spider-Man, and WHIRLWIND.

 

It sounds great so far and I love Superior Foes so Beetle joining is so awesome.

Good to know that Ant-Man will have a soft reboot, keeping the same overall feel. Love the current run, and I'm liking more and more the independent B-Lister comics like this, Silver Surfer, Hawkeye, and Z-Lister in Howard the Duck's case. They don't run necessarily concurrent with the main Universe, but they're still considered part of it. In a "don't think too hard" way.

What exactly is going on with Venom?

The writing isn't always what I want, but I feel like whoever has been deciding what to do with Venom is sharing brain space with me or something.

 

Venom(No host given, but probably Flash?) having Spaceknight-related adventures? Where do I sign up?

Now, if only they could remember Mania existed.(Please don't kill her so Eddie can also be Venom.)

The image is from Guardians of The Galaxy. I liked his stint with the Guardians, and it's an overall interesting concept to have the Symbiote back in space. Maybe some old foes/allies we didn't know existed showing up? Giving him his own story, far away from Spider-Man really expands the character in my opinion.


Yep.

Having a solo title makes me hope they take some time to explore the symbiote-host relationship some more.

I really liked stuff from the end of the last Venom solo series and the issues of Superior Spider-man he showed up in.

 

It looks like it is being written by the guy writing Silk. Which I haven't read yet, but I've heard good things about, so that gives me some hope.

 

 

Definitely looks like Flash-Venom to me in that pic.

Yeah, sorry, probably should have pointed out that the article is using old art.

I was kind of let down by his time with the Guardians so far. I haven't read every issue, but it felt like for most of it he was either absent or incredibly inconsequential. Except for his introduction, and the planet of the symbiotes arc.

 

I thought he was handled better in Red Hulk's Thunderbolts, and I wasn't a huge fan of that book.

WARREN ELLIS IS WRITING A KARNAK BOOK.

 

I'm sold.

 

More X-Men stuff with All-New X-Men continuing sans Jean but plus one VW Camper van.

 

Jeff Lemire and Humberto Ramos with Extraordinary X-Men with Old Man Logan, Young Jean, Storm, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Magik and Iceman. This gives me 90's X-Men Gold Team flashbacks with most of the members.

 

Cullen Bunn and...ugh...Greg Land relaunch Uncanny X-Men with Magneto, Sabretooth, Psylocke, Mystique and Fantomex. Looks like Uncanny will be our new X-Force.

 

Uncanny Avengers (by Gerry Dugan and Ryan Stegman) on the other hand adds Inhumans to the team. We get Old Man Steve Rogers, Human Torch, Rogue, Deadpool, Spider-Man, Quicksilver, Doctor Voodoo and most likely a couple Inhumans.
