It's too bad it's like this because some of what they're doing with tiny cars is pretty cool, but I'm not willing to sign up for that f-ing hassle.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:13 PM)

At this point I'm trying to decide how much of a markup I'm willing to pay some scalper scum or if I should just say to hell with it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 September 2019 - 02:11 PM)

That is pretty much the constant story with Hot Wheels. Anything you might actually want has most likely been picked clean and marked up.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:02 PM)

I've been watching some Youtube Hot Wheels videos out of boredom and discovered there exists a new car that just came out maybe a month ago that looks just like one I had when I was little, and I've been looking around hoping to get it. Slim picking everywhere, but online there are a slew of sellers asking for 3 and 4x the retail price, plus a hefty shipping markup.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 01:59 PM)

Oh, that explains the problem I've encountered with finding one little car

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 September 2019 - 01:31 PM)

Oh boy. I work at Target, and literally every single morning, there are two or three guys outside who make a beeline straight to the Hot Wheels.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 September 2019 - 09:55 PM)

I've never read the source material and don't know much about it, but I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, and found the second alright

@  Sabrblade : (17 September 2019 - 09:49 PM)

The first movie was definitely not for me. I flat out hated it. Didn't even bother with the sequel.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2019 - 05:02 PM)

I liked the first movie a lot and enjoyed the original volume of the book, and the way they were developed in parallel was really interesting. It all got super extra unpleasant as soon as they went back though. I don't remember really whether the initial sequels are "good" or not, but either way both the second movie and the second run of the book quickly demonstrated that the property sure wasn't for me.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i have a real hard time offering praise of anything connected to an utter shitstain like Mark Millar.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2019 - 01:23 PM)

Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

If you owe, you're expected to actually pay it at the time you file, before they even process your return

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 September 2019 - 11:10 PM)

If you file electronically, I find you usually get your refund within a couple weeks

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Whereas if you overpaid and they have to refund you, they will take their sweet time to let you know.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Like, here in Germany, if the tax authority responds to your tax report quickly, you can rest assured they want more money.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Do tax authorities in other countries base their time to respond to filed tax reports on whether they owe or are owed as well?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 11:13 AM)

Check what the requirements are for your cad program, and try to beat them by about 20%, and understand that software requirements have been stable for a few years: not really keeping up with the advancements in hardware. Unless you're doing something SPECIFIC which requires ludicrous amounts of power, just give your self a cushion on hardware and don't bother going whole hog.

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 10:16 AM)

What I'm currently using is an i5 2018 Surface Laptop. My current desktop is all but dead. I think in the end affordability will win out over specs. I need to use CAD programs, but I'm a student, not a professional.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 10:06 AM)

Okay. Whats the specs on the I7 and what are you currently using?

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 09:23 AM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (09 September 2019 - 11:52 AM)

@  Benbot : (09 September 2019 - 09:39 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 07:37 PM)

Good luck! (or break a leg if it's like theater luck...)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 06:46 PM)

Alright. The damages now seem to include my primary SSD. Thankfully, the gaming drive (I have now lost all my games and mods entirely.) Let me wipe it and install there. Once the crucial utility is installed again, will verify the drive.

I loved the trailer, but I'll be honest that the trailer teaser game me more goosebumps and feels. That said, this looks amazing, can't wait to see where they end it and what they set up for "Avengers 4"...

 

1) about 20 seconds in there is a couple, i think it's scarlet witch and I can't tell who else.  Who are they?

 

Scarlett Witch and a humanized Vision.

 

 

2) I'm guessing the fight in the woods by Wakanda means that there is a stone there? 

 

If they put the "Soul" Stone in Wakanda, I'm going to give them a sideways glance for being a little racist. But that's it.

Yep.

Hnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng. So good.

This is all I wanna talk about today.

 

3) Loki's got the Cosmic Cube again. That seems bad. It also looks like his scepter is being used to pull out Vision's Infinity Stone. Also bad.

 

I thought so, too. But I watched it again and the design is completely different. It's Corvus Glaive's weapon, I'd wager. A few from the Black Order are there to be seen, albeit briefly.

That's Scarlet Witch and Vision in a skin suit, if it's the same scene we're thinking of.

Hehe. It's funny.  Thanos' workout gear is a cosmic wife beater.   He puts on his real clothes when he has to deal with other people in a "professional" setting.

I always kinda hoped that Thanos in his "pilgrimage" attire would be adapted in some way for the movies, I think it's a good look.

Interesting.  You'd think this is his more casual attire, and the other his battle gear.  But I guess it's warrior outfit versus ruler outfit type of thing.

Someone on another site called him Stone Cold Steve Thanos, and now that's all I can think of him as.

There's a lot to like in this trailer, I'm just wondering how the hell they can fit it all into one movie.

I can't believe they're actually, really going to kill off their core cast in A4. Though I guess after like 15 movies with Iron Man / Cap / Thor, they really can't keep doing them forever and no one would accept a re-casting within the same storyline. It isn't like James Bond that is always magically beginning with every new star.

 

im kind of looking forward to some of them going down. not that i WANT people to die, but EVERYONE surviving EVERYTHING is getting old and a teeny bit unbelievable now

 

 

see dc? THATS how you make a trailer that gets people excited!

 

course it helps for the movie to be good as well, but dc needs to take baby steps :p

 

Someone better drop the "Today, everyone here is an Avenger" line in this movie or the next one.

 

screw that. ive been dying to hear "avengers assemble" since the first avengers. thought we were gonna get it at the end of ultron, but weadon decided to be a tease. i even hollered "you mothers!" when they cut cap off and went to the credits lol

 

ill be there opening day

Eeeee! Ron Lim art! Teehee! :) :) :)

I really hope the Soul gem isn't in wakanda. It's too much to have the tessaract and the necklace Agamotto to be on Earth already then. That'd be half the gems and it's Earth bring the center of the plot universe again.

Thanos looks a bit weird without his helmet, but for a CG character he looks pretty good. Generations better than Steppenwolf, who looked like a PS3 era boss.
