If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

@  Paladin : (03 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

varies from person to person.

@  Benbot : (03 December 2019 - 11:34 AM)

It's an acquired taste

@  CORVUS : (03 December 2019 - 11:17 AM)

Soylent? Its pretty awful.

@  unluckiness : (03 December 2019 - 02:49 AM)

Depends on your denomination of Christianity

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

@  Benbot : (02 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

have you tried Soylent? It's pretty good! https://soylent.com/

@  Paladin : (02 December 2019 - 10:01 AM)

i prefer free-range human usually. pain in the ass to hunt though...

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 December 2019 - 09:42 AM)

If your human is all bones, you may have purchased a skeleton by accident. Contact your grocer to inquire about exhange policies.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 09:31 AM)

Vegans are categorised as human therefore just fall under Soylant, they are usually all bones.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:47 PM)

Cause... that latter one is technically all burgers anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:46 PM)

So... a burger made without meat, or a burger made with the meat taken from a vegan?

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 December 2019 - 04:22 PM)

I had a vegan burger last week, this week I'll give a vegan steak a shot.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

a proper paradox would have broken the board. Nice try though.

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 November 2019 - 01:47 AM)

This shout is empty.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2019 - 12:01 AM)

I've got the admit. tubi tv is great. It's got a lot of stuff.. Including Super Sentai.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There is frankly no better place to (legally) find schlock on the internet for free than Tubi TV

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:33 PM)

It's got all the graphic violence and gratuitous nudity a late 80s OVA should have.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

Available for free with ads on Tubi TV.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

It's "Goku: Midnight Eye". Originally produced in the late 80s, it apparently wasn't dubbed until the late 90s given Steve Blum was the lead.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 06:38 PM)

The description makes it sound like some high grade, mid 80's shlock. Which, frankly, is my groove.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Was wondering how long it would take someone to ask.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 09:58 AM)

okay, it's been like two days so far: what anime is this, cause I'm dying to know.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 November 2019 - 09:23 PM)

You know you're in for a good time when an old anime starts with a crime lord uses roller skates in his cybernetic legs to skate down the side of the building, launches to a dock and into a getaway boat.

How often does anyone on either faction actually answer for any wrongdoing, though? The closest I can think of is Garrosh, and even then, he technically escaped justice, even if he did get killed off later.

From the really limited shots we have seen of the Jailer, it is chained up.  I am guessing the position is both a warden and also prisoner.  If Sylvanas takes over its role, that would mean the same situation for her, so also locked up at the end.

That could be the Jailer's entire motivation then - gather enough power to free itself.

I will sign up for that raid over and over and over again.  Not getting anything?  I don't care.

 

Ironbite-I'm killing Nathanos until I get bored of it and I'm never getting bored of it.

I mean I'm just gonna point out here that the end of the Loyalist ending has Nathnos saying some stuff that sounds and aweful lot like "this guy is gonna die soon and probably by his lovers hand" and we don't see any hint of him in the Shadowlands stuff.

 

We also still don't have the final cutscene of BFA and we still haven't fired the Horde mega-canon like we were promised was going to happen last blizcon...

 

These things might be connected.

We were promised a Dance Studio over a decade ago. Just because something is promised at Blizzcon doesn't mean it'll happen.

 

Grom Hellscream was going to be the final boss of WoD.

If we get to fire Nathanos out of the cannon, I might resub just for that.

I don't have a max level Horde character, so my dislike of Nathanos is probably lesser than some of you... but I'm looking forward to Bolvar kicking his head in. And Sylvanys'. And controlling the Scourge even without the Helm out of sheer Mustache Power. And lots of other things.

 

Bolvar Fordragon is due some time to shine, is what I'm saying.

 

I also hope that a) Blizz cleans up all the currencies and random drops and crafting mats in BfA that are making things more complicated than necessary, and that b) they stop doing that shit going forward. Oh, and c) that they start being a decent company at some point before my current 6 months is up so that I can actually continue to play.

Oh anyone thinking that this raid is gonna be hard...don't.  It's just a simple little jaunt into 3 bosses that you don't even kill.

 

Ironbite-no wonder it's LFR.

Yeah wasn't hard.  Got my Worldbreaker mount and surprisingly the Firelands mount Ragnaros drops was one of my loot chest rewards.  So that was a cool bonus.

 

Loving old style Alterac Valley too.

I only was able to do BC and WotL last night.  BC was simple, but Northland did have a couple things a LFR group managed to screw up.  The first attempt most of the raid refused to do the Heigan dance, so wipe.

 

Anubarak managed to murder a bunch of people in his submerge phase, even with a few of us trying to create as many frost patches as possible for that phase.  Some people ignored the pathes entirely, and of course ended up dead.

 

Then we got to Arthas.  Defile of course caused the first wipe, it filled all most the entire platform, literally my Moonkin was the only one left cause he was able to DPS at the edge cause of having extra range, which meant Arthas came running after me an proceeded to murder me when everyone else was dead.  Second try, well the group didn't mess with the defile, but most people refused to kill frozen orbs, which luckily I could control, and then 75% of the raid died when the floor dropped out.  I admit that did cause me to cackle on Discord with my two of my guildmates I queued with, we all managed to survive and then finish off Arthas.

 

It was admittedly fun, and a great way to get gear pieces, since the range is 420-440.  Also, fighting Arthas makes me wish I had the tools I had now back then when I fought him originally.  Starsurge just shattered the frost orbs, and my Starfall was able to cover every time Arthas summoned the spirits instead of having to wait for the cooldown and only able to use it for every other batch.

 

Also remember everyone with the event up there is a 15% bonus to experience and leveling.  Pair that up with the Darkmoon fair buff and you could get a ton of both.  This is especially nice if you are working on getting some of the reps up for an allied race to be unlocked.

Yeah, BC was simple, Cata was mostly easy - just adds phase on Rag caused problems- but LK was on the difficult side. They definitely skipped a lot of the harder mechanics, though. And I've seen quite a few reports of people getting rare mounts from the chests, so maybe they're at a higher drop rate? Or it could just be confirmation bias.

 

Embarrassingly, I did die the first time out on Nef, because I had looked away for a moment and didn't know it started with P2.

 

Old Alterac Valley is interesting to do again. Not fun, necessarily, but interesting. Needing to get 10 or so wins to get the mount is a bit much.

If I had 5 mil to splurge, I wouldn't buy the Bronto anyway.

 

Now if I had 5 mil, I might drop 72k on the Proudmoore Gryphon or 10k for the Swole Horse.
