And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:04 PM)

They also have wall outlets with built-in USB in addition to the two regular plugs; I installed those around my place so I have USB ports everywhere

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:02 PM)

You might be able to get a generic adapter to use with it at Radio Shack if you know the appropriate voltages or whatever

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:01 PM)

It came with a USB cable with no AC adapter? A lot of lower priced electronics do that, presumably assuming that USB is pretty ubiquitous

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Yeah, must be, I guess.

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:59 PM)

maybe having bluetooth has something to do with it?

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

the one i got has an on/off button, and came with a usb to attach to my laptop to charge it. its this one https://www.walmart....ility/432985497

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 04:51 PM)

Selfie sticks have power? I thought they were to just hold the phone away from you

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:44 PM)

need some technical help.how do i charge my selfie stick without using my laptop? is there some kind of portable charger? i know it sounds like a dumb question, but i dont know very much about this stuff

@  MEDdMI : (08 June 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Different songs or overdosing don't work for me. My brain can play multiple songs at once. Best to do something else to distract me.

@  Xellos : (08 June 2019 - 05:36 PM)

Still, the worst is having the last song I hear before going into work being stuck in my head all day.

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Get a different song stuck in your head too. Let them battle for supremacy. Only the strong survive.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 03:53 PM)

Keep listening to it over and over until you got the lyrics memorized. By that point, it will start to fade out of your system.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

I've discovered the easiest cure for having a song stuck in your head is overdosing to the point of fatigue.

@  Steevy Maximus : (08 June 2019 - 12:27 PM)

Jedi Fallen Order sure does look a LOT like a Souls style game with Star Wars flavoring

@  Kalidor : (07 June 2019 - 06:18 PM)

I have a hard time believing that you speaking at length and with great detail is something you wouldn't be good at. Glad you had fun.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:51 PM)

Funny thing is I wasn't nervous at all. Might have helped that I was able to speak freely due to having assembled my speech from a lot of smaller segments I had previously told to my colleagues on the shopfloor, with a few punchlines added.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:49 PM)

Allegedly I did well. Lots of applause, and was told I was leagues beyond the guy who spoke before me (though that wasn't difficult, that guy was dry as a river on Mars).

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

So I volunteered to hold a small speech at our strike assembly today (lots of Amazon employees, plus some people from IKEA, Smyths toys and some other local retailers).

Season 1 was hard to watch, I liked season 2. And lost interest season 3 onwards.

I'm not going to say that Arrow is fantastic, but it at least mildly holds my interest at its timeslot. If there was something better on, sure I'd watch that, but there isn't.

I'm mildly interested for the time being, as said the fight sequences are pretty good. Plus, from the sounds of it, at NYCC, they've got a good archery talent that has pointed out film flubs in terms of what Hollywood occasionally does.

I like a lot of things about this show. The action scenes are well filmed, it's not pulling it's punches and meandering in the PG-13 world of Smallville. It takes place in a textured urban enviroment. Merlin's cool and able to nurture a rivalry with Ollie without Smallville's "GEE I LOVE YOU CLARK THE LAST THING I EVER WANT TO HAPPEN IS FOR US TO BE ENEMIES" and while Ollie himself is quite vanilla, the show is overally fairly atmospheric.

But.

Wow, that dialogue. So many throw-away lines of exposition. It's like I started every sentence with "Hey, Allspark, I know it's been a while since I posted because I've been busy writing for a website, but I think i'll share my thoughts on the matter since you know I like to keep informed." once the info-dump quota has been filled I think this show might become pretty watchable.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I liked the ending, except for the "Hey". That was dumb as hug. Just don't have him say anything and start the next episode with that scene, with some more poignant dialogue. I liked that they made Deadshot pretty comic book-y as well. Bad acting and cheesy dialogue aside, this is a pretty entertaining show. Just imagine if they manage to turn the bad parts around.

Ugh, just caught the episode on the CW's app*. Okay overall, but boy did Deadshot's eyepiece look goofy. The wrist guns were fine, but man that was really odd. Other than that particular wardrobe failure, it was generally a bland episode overall.

Well Teen Titans did call him Slade because the whole "Death" thing in his name and they had to be more kid friendly. Glad they are going with Deathstroke, but I can understand why some would say Slade.



My speculation...PURELY from the shot in the pilot of the mask and the teaser footage, that "Deathstroke" won't be an individual, but rather an identity passed around.

or that was Ravager's mask on the island thus giving Deathstroke more of a reason for hating Ollie then just I was hired to take you down or whatever

Only just saw the first ep. It was ok but I hate it that Oliver is murdering people, geez. Was Adam Hunt's security guy (the one who fought Arrow hand to hand) dead? The arrow was stuck pretty deep. Hope that guy comes back.

Ollie's dad killing the other guy then himself was kinda stupid. They could have survived together. Whatever.

Did Black Canary have a sister in comic fiction? What was Ollie's sister's name? Is it Mia with Aids Speedy from the comics? I wanna see Arrowette here.

I could google Merlyn's real name but he's set as that best friend of Ollie? Too bad.

The actor sounds weird doing his monologues. And he looks waaaay too big / bulky in his gratuitous scene. Not like a guy who was probably sorta starving on an island. Justin Hartley was leaner.

Basically, what accent does she have?

I believe the actor who plays Oliver's mom is American.

I like this show a great deal, which actually surprised me considering that I didn't really get into Smallville until after Lex and Lana left (i.e. watching it regularly).

I am curious to see where the writers and creators go with the characters other than Oliver, given that they are only based on their comic origins.

The last episode was actually pretty surprising ending.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
Just as Diggs agrees to help Oliver, and serve as his conscience (considering the archer's years on the island have made him too predatorial), Laurel's dad comes in to arrest Oliver for being the archer. Even though I expect him to get out of this, it will likely make people more suspicious of him.
Knowledge combined with experience are the building blocks to enlightenment.
