Russian interference should have been fighting an uphill battle, but as far as I'm concerned we gave them a head start.

@  Shrug : (20 October 2018 - 05:23 AM)

I disagree with Hillary being a good choice to run against Trump. Plenty of mixed feelings about her long before 2016 within our own party. When the DNC has to rig it's own primaries to get their chosen candidate running, maybe you shouldn't expect an easy landslide at the actual election.

@  Pennpenn : (20 October 2018 - 05:20 AM)

It would have also helped if the US was also an actualy democracy where the candidate who gets the most votes wins, but hey.

@  Rycochet : (20 October 2018 - 04:42 AM)

You helped destroy western democracy, but hey, at least no-one can accuse you of bias... Oh wait, they did, still do, and are going to keep doing so as long as you report facts.

@  Rycochet : (20 October 2018 - 04:39 AM)

Hillary was a good choice to run against Trump, the big problem was the media crawling all over themselves to try and push the idea of fairness, and threw her under the bus to do so. Any hint of impropriety was treated as being exactly the same as actual proven criminal acts by Trump in order to avoid being seen as biased... and at the end of it all, he turned around and bit them for doing so because that's who he is.

It's the only of the "established" parties (it's almost 40 years old at this point) that has remained true to its principles.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:34 AM)

Meanwhile, some uplifting news from Germany: While our big parties are rapidly losing voters, and our new "we're not really extreme" right-wing party is gaining voters, there is one other party that is scoring massive points, both in polls and the recent Bavarian state election: The Green Party.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:33 AM)

I still think having Hillary run against Drumpf was a bad choice.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 October 2018 - 03:32 AM)

Well on the bright side, we know more people voted for HIllary than the cheeto.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:31 AM)

I guess many a prepper might have also voted for the person most likely to bring about the end of society they are waiting for.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:28 AM)

Now let that sink in, and then think about how many people voted for Agent Orange.

Man, watching the original Voltron cartoon for the first time is so weird after having only seen the Netflix reboot.

@  D.M : (19 October 2018 - 09:09 AM)

+They don't really give a crap about God. All their religious talk is just part of the mask. They wanna look like the ideal citizen (what they consider that to be) - the most Christian of all Christians, the most patriotic of all patriots, etc.

@  Pennpenn : (19 October 2018 - 08:13 AM)

That's because she was also greedy, heartless, and despised the poor, which is something the right often loves more than God.

@  RichardT1977 : (19 October 2018 - 07:55 AM)

I find it rather amusing that the party of the Religious Right sees wisdom in a woman who hated the notion of God almost as much as she hated and feared the idea of being part of a family.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:39 AM)

However, another big issue is cultural differences. We do have a sense of humor, it's just different than in other cultures because it is a product of a different culture. Simply put, what you might find incredibly funny is considered unfunny by Germans... and vice versa.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:38 AM)

It's actually a multi-faceted issue. Yes, some Germans are incredibly devoid of humor, although those people exist in other countries too. I have no ideas regarding statistics, but these people exist.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:37 AM)

So, about this long-standing stereotype that "Germans have no sense of humor"...

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 October 2018 - 03:49 AM)

I got enough Rand fighting my way through the Sword of Truth series. I can't imagine trying to read the original work.

@  Pennpenn : (19 October 2018 - 02:39 AM)

All the people who like Rand should go live in a big underwater city. I cannot foresee anything that could go wrong with such a scenario.

@  MidnightFox : (19 October 2018 - 01:13 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2018 - 09:07 PM)

That's one of the things the old cable companies got right: Only one or two options per area. The illusion of choice.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2018 - 08:48 PM)

The restauraunt messes up your food, you complain to customer service. Complain to 911 when you get food poisoning from said food.

@  MEDdMI : (18 October 2018 - 07:59 AM)

Ugh. I hate people sometimes.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2018 - 04:00 AM)

I mean, white people are calling the cops on black people for random shit lately, it appears.

@  Pennpenn : (18 October 2018 - 02:49 AM)

It's not that surprising that some people freaked out enough over Youtube being down that they'd call emergency services. I mean, I've heard of at least one instance of someone calling 911 because the restaurant didn't make a cheeseburger to their liking.

I was a bit iffy about T'Chaka dying in Civil War at first. It felt like too big a story point to be happening in someone else's movie.

 

But now that we're here, I'm glad that T'Challa can start right off being king, instead of having to build up to it.

So wait, Klaw claims he's the only one to have set foot in Wakanda proper, but in Age of Ultron that Wakandan brand was key to unlocking both his importance to the story and what Ultron's plan was.

 

I mean, how realistic is it that Wakanda is some secret African Superpower? Why is that even a plot point? I'm not really versed on Black Panther stories, but I always got the impression Wakanda was like Latvaria and the Savage Land - known locations on Earth.

iirc Wakanda was EXTREMELY isolationist for much of its history. Its known about, but at the start no one knew it was the super-advanced nation that is really is becuase almost no outsiders ever entered. Nowadays that's been loosened since Black Panther has allowed the Avengers and other Heroes to come and go, but not sure if they're still closed to non-allies of the king.

Wakanda IS known in the MCU; apparently as a third-world country where they brand smugglers. Doesn't mean they know about the jets and the super suits and all the other superhero tech.

As explained by the trailer, Wakanda is known to the public, but El Dorado, located within Wakanda is not.  That means that the country has managed to keep many secrets within its borders.

The trailer just says 'they called it El Dorado' meaning the explorers did.. not that El Dorado is in Wakanda.

The capital of Wakanda in the comics is Birnin Zana which also means Golden City.. so that's probably why he says that (not that there couldn't be 2 golden cities in the world though lol)

Not knowing a ton about the source material, it looks alright.  Maybe a little cheesy that there are multiple Black Panther armors (and an evil Black Panther armor), but I'll buy Marvel Legends of all of them like the sucker that I am.

Congratulats on making Iron Man's armor look outdated and clunky.

 

Sure Tony, you can turn your armor into a suitcase, and fly it piece-by-piece across the country or down from a satellite...but can it simply manifest out of nowhere?  No?  You're yesterday's news.

To be fair, the Wakandans have been developing this technology for centuries. Tony's made some decent leaps and bounds in just 10 years.

When was the last time you seen a panther walk on 2 legs and shoot metal discs at trucks?

My point was that the armor seems to simultaneously outclass the Iron Man armor while missing a basic feature of it.

maybe they have tried, but they just cant get something with enough power to maintain it. after all, the iron man suits seem to be the only examples of people being able to fly in the mcu*. perhaps its not as easy as we seem to believe it is in this universe

 

wait. what about falcon? he doesnt have an arc reactor. he has tiny jets in his suit right? how does his suit work? course i dont think falcon can fly from gulmira to california...

 

maybe wakandans just cant crack it
