@TM2-Megatron Yeah, it is like @TheMightyMollusk says. The catch is that usually means they can contain beef, and I confirmed it by pushing my luck. XD So... yeah, if going to the theater was about watching the film, it might be worth potentially resting on the balls of my feet while technically sitting in the chair, but put it all together... and I just wait to watch it at home. Oh, and ticket prices, always ticket prices.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2018 - 10:24 AM)

woot woot! Korean barbeque for dinner!

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 May 2018 - 05:51 AM)

It's meat scraps. Whatever's left over from cutting up the more choice cuts.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 May 2018 - 11:26 PM)

Well, the hot dogs Cineplex has (pretty much our only big theatre chain) around here are quite good, but I have no idea of the composition, and honestly, it's probably better that way.

@  Otaku : (18 May 2018 - 10:01 PM)

@TM2-Megatron In my case, shouldn't risk the hot dogs, either. Maybe if they are guaranteed to contain NO beef (can't digest it anymore >_<).

We did that amongst ourselves in German class in college. We just called it "Germish", though.

Nevermore, you've peaked my interest and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:04 AM)

The term itself is an example: "English for Runaways" is supposed to mean "English for advanced speakers".

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:03 AM)

Think of it as the German variety of Engrish, only done completely on purpose for maximum hilarity. The target audience are bilingual German native speakers who a) understand the intended meaning and b) realize the absurdness of the end result.

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:02 AM)

It's basically the official unofficial term for deliberate mistranslations between German and English, done for the lulz.

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:01 AM)

Has anyone ever heard of the term "English for Runaways"?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 May 2018 - 01:13 AM)

Okay... Seriously.. The Mystic Knights need a DVD release already.. I keep seeing them pop up in the most random of places.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 May 2018 - 01:03 AM)

Unfortunately no Squidkids at Sea World so no splat zones. Now that would have been a good brand deal to advertise in the park, and would have made more brand sense than friggin' Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 May 2018 - 01:06 AM)

I used to work at Sea World in Florida, in the stroller rental warehouse, where we would regularly have to hose wet popcorn out of strollers. Popcorn hasn't really appealed to me since.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 May 2018 - 06:15 PM)

If I couldn't eat popcorn, I have to admit that would remove part of the appeal for my going, as well. Although the theatre chain up here still has decent hot dogs, I guess

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 May 2018 - 06:12 PM)

Yeah.. Stomach issues is one of the big medical reasons for me as well.

@  Otaku : (16 May 2018 - 05:55 PM)

I rarely go to movie theaters anymore: besides being too fat to sit comfortably in the seats, I have digestive health issues. No popcorn at all. >_<

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 May 2018 - 05:26 PM)

Medical reasons.

@  Telly : (16 May 2018 - 12:49 PM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 May 2018 - 04:37 PM)

I can't even go the theater anymore really.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2018 - 03:29 PM)

Personally, I like the short wait. As much as I still enjoy going to the theatre, I also like getting movies at home as soon as possible

@  Bass X0 : (15 May 2018 - 03:12 PM)

Just found out John Mahoney (Martin Crane in Frasier) died earlier this year. That's sad.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 May 2018 - 02:59 PM)

more and more i'm starting to wish i'd become an alcoholic years ago.

@  Otaku : (14 May 2018 - 06:31 AM)

The sad thing is that I sometimes think a little social drinking by others puts us on even footing. I'm sure you're all shocked (which emoticon do i use for sarcasm again?) that I'm not good at social situations, and either I clam up or say too much, can't read the room, etc.? XP

@  Nevermore : (14 May 2018 - 12:21 AM)

I don't drink for a variety of reasons. Family alcoholism, can't stand the smell, don't like what it does to people, etc.

@  Waspinator : (13 May 2018 - 11:15 PM)

It's not always other people caring about you not drinking that makes it awkward. You can make yourself feel awkward by not doing something everyone else is doing without anyone even trying to make you do it. Peer pressure doesn't have to be intentional, the desire to fit in can make you do it to yourself.

@  Plokatron : (13 May 2018 - 10:57 PM)

@Pennpenn Same here. I just don't see a need to drink hard stuff even if it's as simple as one sip. Two reasons one I'd probably be as much a lightweight as Doc. Brown and two my uncle was killed in a car wreck due to a drunk driver and I've made a promise to my mother to never drink unless it's very special. I'm even less tolerant of Smoking or chewing Tabaco since my dad had cancer twice due to chewing learned his lesson after he survived round two. And before I get the naysayers on this the doctors specified to him that it was chewing that screwed him up. His genes did have a possible trigger in them that coulc of gone off but according to the docs it only mutated after he started chewing.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 May 2018 - 08:06 PM)

I have enough problems with Diabetes messing with me.. Don't need alcohol adding to it. ;)

Or, y'know, its a makeshift "Codex" to use while the new one is being made. This happened to Blood Angels a while back before they got their new one. If they'd been "Squatted" then GW would be pretending like they didn't exist.

I think it depends on their sales from this point. Rumour is that they're going to release a five-sisters model box and some repentia and stuff that'll supposedly be convertable to most of the army list.

But if that doesn't sell well I don't see much future for the army personally.

I think the main reason for a sub-codex at this point is because they probably don't want to release a new Inquisition codex so near the Grey Knights codex, but so much of the game has moved away from the Witch Hunter's codex, like the allies system, that just releasing something like that will just tidy it up somewhat. Obviously how much attention they get in future depends on their sellability, but unlike the Squats (for instance), they can't really be just written out of existence now. I really do think this is just meant to be a stopgap measure rather than the final death rattle for the Sisters. But we'll see.

I am disapointed, but I'm not surprised. Mat Ward does seem to have... issues with the Sisters of Battle, if the new Grey Knight book has anything to do with it. Also, GW's target market seems to be at the "girls are icky" stage. Both add up to a situation where the Sisters are going to be ignored in favour of more manly power-armoured spess mehreens, but in a variety of hats.

I doubt they'll be truly Squatted (Entirely ignored, have a Hive Fleet dropped on them) but they might get scaled back to the level of support the AdMech now get (Which is to say none). Which is a shame, because the metal Sisters were cracking models.

?5 says Black Templars will be taking their slot in the codex release queue.

Some raging fan boy will update the last rule set into the next one if they do get squatted out of existance. Nothing will stop people from being able to play the sisters in up to date games.

To be honest I kinda see the codex in White Dwarf as a positive thing, in that they're still doing something with the army to get it up to date, instead of letting it languish until it gets rereleased, like for instance, Necrons, or Dark Eldar. Maybe I'm just being naive, but it feels better than being pessimistic.

Anyone know if GW is still doing anything with Warmaster? Was always more interested in the big battles than anything else.

I'm fairly sure you can still get the models from GW, and I think the rules are free to get now, but GW haven't really done anything to do Epic scale for some time.

Warmaster is dead in the water. You can get the rules for free, and plenty of third parties make 6mm Fantasy figures, so you're not left high and dry when the current "official" molds wear out.

I dunno if this is the place to bring it up, but I've got my hands on the Alpha Test of Mantic's Sci-Fi game, Warpath. From what I've seen? Knocks 40k into a cocked hat, especially in simulating "big" games. My only serious problem so far is that, like 40k, there's a universal movement characteristic and a slew of special rules for different speeds, rather than just a seperate "Move" stat. The concept art for the Forgefathers looks tasty as well, which just goes to show how much GW dropped the ball on their own Dorfs in Space concept. Can't wait to see the Marauders, although I'd prefer it if they moved a bit further list-wise from Orks. A public Beta should be out by the end of the month with any luck.

I think you mean sculpting and design, the molding itself is top notch with Mantic (done by Renedra, the guys who previously worked for GW).

I don?t plan to buy any Mantic Scifi models either, since I already have too many miniatures as it is, but I?m glad to have a set of rules in which I can use my existing models (Citadel, Mongoose, Heartbreaker, Target, whatever). I really like the 40k background and imagery, but the game itself is severly lacking, so it?s nice to have a better and more streamlined ruleset available.

I have enough GW stuff to paint forever, so I can always play. I just don't buy anymore
