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.

@  Locoman : (19 November 2017 - 10:59 PM)

Welcome to the "political crisis" queue, here's your ticket.

@  Nevermore : (19 November 2017 - 10:20 PM)

Complicated lengthy coalition talks just failed.

@  Nevermore : (19 November 2017 - 10:20 PM)

Oh boy. Germany is in a political crisis.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 November 2017 - 01:25 PM)

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

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

Nah.. Life is simply the precursor to death.

@  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)

being mostly wrong is better than being TOTALLY wrong!

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

ALL HAIL THE BLESSED OCTOBUTT.

I really hope so. All of my high school drawings and notes (Hand-written notes! God, I'm old.) from girls are in a chest in the attic of my parents house. I'll check when I visit!

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

Do you still have those drawings?

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

I'd say the more important question is how X and Magneto fail to age at all over the twenty-year span of the "second trilogy".

 

Patrick Stewart hasn't aged in twenty years, so that one's pretty easy.

 

 

Seriously.

 

They had to put old age makeup on a Seventy Six Year Old just to sell the idea that Xavier is older in Logan.

Fox has so effectively butchered the X-Men continuity that I have no idea what the hell they are doing anymore.

 

The cinematic X-verse is very true to the overall comic continuity in that respect.

Dunno why everyone's so confused, there are only two timelines:

Timeline A
First Class-->Origins: Wolverine-->-->-->X-Men-->X2-->X3-->The Wolverine-->-->DoFP(bad future)

Timeline B (created by Wolverine altering history)
First Class-->DoFP-->Apocalypse-->(untitled future X-film)-->Deadpool-->DoFP(good future)-->-->-->Logan

DoFP erased Origins: Wolverine, since Logan didn't go to Vietnam with Creed (where they would eventually come to Stryker's attention), but instead made a beeline for Xavier's mansion.

The only really confusing parts are peoples' ages/actors, and I'm willing to write those off as artistic license and butterfly effects.

How is the teaser we saw in Logan a "good future"? Especially with it set a year after DoFP? Replace one catastrophe with another - the only difference is it seems Humanity isn't collateral damage like they were in the Sentinel Future.

 

Also, Deadpool's in an isolated continuity bubble, since he's aware of both McAvoy and Stewart.

Yeah, the confusion is solely over the fact that DOFP had everyone having a whale of a time at the X-Mansion in 2023, and then Logan apparently has mutants as a dying breed in 2024, which makes zero sense if it's in the same new timeline.

(Also, I don't think Deadpool's fourth-wall-breaking gags are really something one should use to try and determine continuity...)

What if Apocalypse showing up has set in motion cable traveling back and the universe on track for some AOE bad future.

Alternate theory: What if we aren't seeing old man Logan adapted, but the events leading to it. The "Bad guys" he kills throughout the movie are actually xmen trying to rescue the prof and x21 from a mind controlled wolverine. The end has a he audience all for wolverine going berserk on the baddies until it shamalan twists to him surround by the blood soaked body's of the xmen.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

Considering this is reportedly Jackman's last appearance as Wolverine, I doubt that.

Yeah, I doubt they'll make Jackman's last outing so dang depressing.

 

As for Deadpool and McAvoy and Stewart in the same film - the thing there was it was Colossus taking him back to the mansion. The fact Wade asks the question (Beyond being a great gag), means there's a chance the Professor is McAvoy...who hasn't met Colossus yet.

 

Dang nabbit FOX. I am not supposed to think this hard about movie timelines.

for the first time, I am genuinely excited for an X Men movie.  That looks incredibly good.  As a hero movie, as a dramatic movie.  It looks good.
