It's like how the whole "alpha male" thing doesn't really show up in wolf packs in the wild.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 01:54 AM)

Aaaaand another myth busted.

@  CORVUS : (24 April 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Quite welcome! :)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2019 - 09:51 PM)

@Corvus Huh, did not know that part. Thanks for imparting knowledge!

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 09:27 PM)

No because it's true.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 April 2019 - 09:17 PM)

Would I be jaded if i said that's a good lesson about people as well?

@  CORVUS : (23 April 2019 - 09:01 PM)

Overstated risk. Most observations of sexual cannibalism in the Praying Mantis occurred in captivity, versus nature. When entomologists began observing them in nature instead, they found that sexual cannibalism took place around 30% of the time. Basically, if a male Mantis avoids thin, hungry females, his chances are pretty good. #yesimanerd

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2019 - 07:52 PM)

Are you a male mantis?

@  MEDdMI : (23 April 2019 - 07:27 PM)

Death by snu snu

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2019 - 06:40 PM)

There's a joke about going out with a bang to be made here.

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 06:38 PM)

I would hope getting laid is preferred over dying :p

@  Nevermore : (23 April 2019 - 05:20 PM)

Don't we all want to get laid?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2019 - 04:53 PM)

I'd spend the first few loops just taking an extended nap.

@  Dekafox : (23 April 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Endless death time loops certainly happen enough in Star Trek

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 03:50 PM)

That's not what I had in mind but if that is what you would do in that scenario then that is pretty messed up. I would not want to be stuck in a perpetual loop of death. More like getting laid but that is just me.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2019 - 01:58 PM)

Happy death day to you!

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 01:45 PM)

.... I would love that. To be stuck in an endless loop where no one remembers what happened... The possibilities :D

@  ZakuConvoy : (23 April 2019 - 01:43 PM)

Are you stuck in a Groundhogs Day situation? Because if you are, you need to tell the rest of us so we can take advantage, too.

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 11:10 AM)

Lol today needs to end asap so that I can start over tomorrow

@  Ashley : (21 April 2019 - 10:08 PM)

They frequently do, but yeah there's no rule. Google will usually answer it for a specific restaurant, though

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 April 2019 - 02:57 PM)

Depends on the restaurant and the area. There's no universal rule about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2019 - 02:41 PM)

I thought restaurants were one of the few things that stayed open on holidays, along with movie theatres and the like

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 April 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Well here I am hungry on a Sunday afternoon and I head to Chipotle only to find out right then and there that the place is closed for Easter. Yay.

@  MEDdMI : (19 April 2019 - 09:21 PM)

oof, yikes. Good luck.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 April 2019 - 09:18 PM)

We're in the middle of a kitchen reno and NOTHING will be done until tuesday. I could beat a four day weekend with a hammer right now if it meant I could use my stove again.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 April 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Can't beat 4 day weekends either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 April 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I prefer later shifts myself, but my 3 day weekend shift isn't bad. Nice to work without those administration busy bodies poking around.

@  Nevermore : (19 April 2019 - 04:12 AM)

Yeah, traffic is a plus as well. Rarely got any trouble getting to work on late shift (even with the neverending construction site on the highway), and when my shift is over, there's hardly any traffic at all anymore.

@  MEDdMI : (18 April 2019 - 06:27 PM)

while I don't have weekends consistently off, working 2nd shift isn't so bad. I'm more likely to do stuff before work than after (when I'm already tired). Plus no rush hour traffic

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 April 2019 - 05:03 PM)

Switching shifts constantly is never good for one's health. There was a time when I worked overnights steady for about 2 years; did wonders for my health, as well

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:36 PM)

Don't miss early shift (and especially switching back and forth every two weeks) a bit.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:36 PM)

Man, permanent late shift really has done wonders for my overal well-being. Never having to get up early for work, staying up late, weekends off... a ot of my coworkers think I'm crazy, but late shift is really my preferred shift.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

(My total lack of sleep on that day might have contributed, though.)

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

At noon, it was warm.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

On Monday, we went on strike early in the morning, I was also wearing to jackets and gloves and my toes and fingers were freezing.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 April 2019 - 04:31 PM)

Nope, right now my days are doing that. Frigid at night (Well, just below zero, but still.) and warm enough to be always be ill prepared during the day.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Today it's so warm I had to take a shower to wash off the sweat after a lengthy bike trip.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:27 PM)

This past Friday I was wearing two jackets and winter gloves outside and took a hot bath when I returned home.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:27 PM)

Is "April weather" an issue in other countries as well, or is that specifically a German phenomenon?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Well, when you understand the history of the area it make sense. It's basically a series of countries buying the place, moving in, saying "we rule you people now", and the locals shrugging and responding, "okay, you have fun with that".

@  Sabrblade : (16 April 2019 - 07:58 AM)

When did we all turn into Henry Higgins?

@  unluckiness : (16 April 2019 - 03:16 AM)

To be fair, most Americans can't get the hang of English, so I can understand why.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 03:15 AM)

(And yeah, Calliope is a Greek muse, not French, but the street was named BY the French when they took over.)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 03:10 AM)

In New Orleans there's a bunch of streets with French names that are pronounced by locals with a more English emphasis, for example "Calliope Street" is pronounced "CAL-lee-ope".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 11:56 PM)

I figured as much for Canadians.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 April 2019 - 11:37 PM)

hm; whenever I've heard people talk about the school they said it the same way as the cathedral...but I guess that's in Canada, so they're probably more familiar with the cathedral than the school

@  Dracula : (15 April 2019 - 11:11 PM)

There's plenty of place names in the US like that. Around here we have an "el doh-RAY-doh," and up north there's a Cairo that's pronounced "kay-roh"

@  RichardT1977 : (15 April 2019 - 09:56 PM)

Yeah, the common pronunciation of the University is probably the reason most Americans don't pronounce the Cathedral name correctly.

@  Arazyr : (15 April 2019 - 08:03 PM)

That's my understanding of how the two are supposed to be pronounced as well.

@  Echowarrior : (15 April 2019 - 07:42 PM)

When I'm talking about the cathedral, I say "noh-treh dahme". When I talk about the university, I say "noh-ter dayme". I don't see a problem with that.

Kefka.

 

He was a whiny, irritating twit. The entire game I kept thinking: "Okay he's going to die early then we can get the real villain" But no. He IS the villain.

 

I had to put up with him the entire game, and he's the entire reason I've never touched Final Fantasy 3/6 ever again.

 

I hate his stupid laugh, I hate his self imposed crybaby attitude, I hate that he gets credit for something he didn't actually do. ("But he destroyed the world!" Oh really? You mean the world you still spend the rest of the game on? The one that can still apparently support life as there are things still LIVING on it? That world? Go watch DBZ and see Kid Buu destroy the earth. THAT is destroy.)

 

I LOATH HIM.

The entirety of George R.R. Martin's literary work.


Don't fight it, it's coming for you, running at ya / It's only this moment, don't care what comes after
Your fever dream, can't you see it getting closer / Just surrender 'cause you feel the feeling taking over
It's fire, it's freedom, it's flooding open / It's a preacher in the pulpit and you'll find devotion
There's something breaking at the brick of every wall, it's holding All that you know
So tell me do you wanna go?

NuBSG was a joyless experience with a brilliant cast and a story literally written by the seat of the writers' pants. Where major, game changing plot beats are chosen OUT OF A LITERAL HAT.

This smug bastard from Fang of the Sun, Dougram: Helmut Lecoque. He's probably personally responsable for at least some of the worst stuff from that show, yet he's totally believable as a person and character.  He also has a very punchable face.

Hate is a really strong word. Not sure I feel that strongly against any fictional character.

As a kid I really disliked the "Hero Jerk" archetype in 80s Cartoons. So The Paladin from the DND toon, Lance from Voltron and Slingshot from TFs we're some of my least liked characters. Really disliked Beachead and Sgt Slaughter from G.I. Joe.

-ZacWilliam, other than that the closest that comes to mind are the three main characters from The Last Summer a book we read senior year of high school. Don't go look it up. It also has the record of being the only book I've ever sworn at and thrown across a room.
Ever wonder about the speed of Turbofoxes?

Victor and Monty from Power Rangers Ninja Steel.  Several episodes centered around their farts...I don't think I have to go into any more detail, do I?.

 

Super Duck, from Archie Comics.  A poor man's Donald Duck impersonator.  And yet, for some reason, Archie comics seems proud of having published this character, since reprints still crop up in the Best of Archie Comics collections.  The artwork is terrible, the character forgettable, and...I just don't understand who over in Archie Comics loves this Cock-eyed little nothing of a character so much that he seems to pop up from time to time.  Archie is just so PROUD of ripping off Donald Duck and getting away with it, it makes me hate the character.

 

But most of all, and probably most inexplicably...the Silver Millennium Crystal from Sailor Moon.  Now, this isn't technically a character, but...I'm counting it anyway and you can't stop me.   :p   It is the laziest and cheapest deus ex machina of all time.  What do all the heroes want?  What do all the villains want?  What is the solution to and the source of every single problem in the Sailor Moon manga?  This crystal!  Now, this is mostly me ranting about the manga, rather than the 90s cartoon.  In the 90s cartoon, I feel like the monsters of the week actually help give Sailor Moon a little variety.  But in the manga....my goodness, none of the villains have much of a personality...they are pretty boring.  The only thing they do have?  A desire for this crystal.  I just got sick of hearing about it every page.  I have to wonder why they just didn't chuck the thing into the Sun, since the only reason most of these villains are even attacking Earth is because they want the crystal.  No crystal, no problems!  I was actually excited about the evil alien Circus arc, because at least they had a different motivation from every other villain in the manga...up until they hear about the Crystal and decide "Oh, yeah, we gotta get that!"

 

I have never hated a fictional, voiceless, inanimate object as much as I hate this crystal.  To be fair, there is a reason why all these villains had the same desire, and I do feel like the Sailor Moon manga steadily improves as it goes along its 10 volumes, but...bleh on weak motivations for forgettable villains.
