They aren't all cranky... sure, it's hard to find one in a good mood, but still.

Cranky geese is a hell of a tautology

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2019 - 09:07 AM)

... that's like the third flock of geese this morning. Do those cranky bitches know something I should know?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 September 2019 - 06:26 AM)

I think I'd read a while back she was born in Berlin

I thought Zazie Beetz was really fantastic in Deadpool 2. Really looking forward to seeing her in Joker.

@  Liege : (20 September 2019 - 12:05 PM)

Any sightings of Ratchet at U.S. Walgreens yet? A couple of stores around me have recently restocked their toy aisles but no Ratchets yet at those ones.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:54 AM)

You don't even hear a hint of an accent, and she only very rarely chooses some odd wording where she probably wasn't familiar with the more appropriate alternative due to its relative obscurity.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:41 AM)

Just watched what's possibly the most relaxed interview ever of a German Youtuber interviewing Zazie while walking around Berlin. Turns out she was born in Berlin and spent quite some time in Germany.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:39 AM)

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.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2019 - 01:54 PM)

So relieved that I picked up most of my NTSC GameCube collection in 2010/11 before prices on the secondary market went bezerk...

@  unluckiness : (12 September 2019 - 12:54 AM)

I have fond memories of it since it was the last console Mario Kart that didn't have the ridiculous pre-race cart assembly

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 September 2019 - 10:26 PM)

@  unluckiness : (11 September 2019 - 09:24 AM)

Double Dash is great. Just watch out for blue shells

I used a double dash on my mobile. The chat didn’t like it.

The mobile version of the site chokes on certain characters, I think.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 September 2019 - 04:10 AM)

what's with that punctuation anyway

@  Nevermore : (11 September 2019 - 03:20 AM)

Now where did that come from, Bass X0?

Politics and Religion — tools of foul play!

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

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".

I think the show's gotten better episode by episode. They've passed on a few more cliches for more unusal story hooks. Acting is getting better.


Speculation on John Barrowman:
HIGHLIGHT to view:
Before the show, i was thinking he'd be Bruce Wayne...then after the first episode I was thinking Ras Al Ghul (or equivilent) from Batman Begins...the master of the isalnd who trained Ollie. Now I'm thinking he might be Slade Wilson.

Another strong episode. The show's really starting to hit it's stride. Glad it's not afraid to be "comic book-y" either. Like when he swings off the roof, and how he ninja vanishes all the time. I'm really digging it.

Diggs will pose as the Arrow while he's locked up thus clearing him

I hope I'm wrong, because it's a rather cheesy trope.

The way this show has been going in terms of skewering secret ID tropes, I figure we're more likely to see Detective Drake ending up co-opted somehow and helping keep the secret. The show seems to like setting up stuff that normally would be series-long running gags and then ending them fast.

Split the difference, he was hilariously good. I mean, the body armor & gear looked fairly good, but the mask itself could have been less defined. I could have done without the brow ridges myself. And instead of that garrish yellow, I wish they went with bronze metal.


Also, so Ollie intentionally got caught on camera, so he could have his partner throw off suspicion. Except, he didn't actually have a partner yet & half the previous episode made it seem like he wouldn't be getting one.

Doesn't exactly sound like a very good master plan, does it?

Ollie's never been much of a 'master planner' type, he's always been or seems like a "fly by the seat of his pants' type

But the point is, he wasn't even wearing the pants yet. Plus, I can't be certain, but given Green Arrow's depiction on Young Justice & Justice League Unlimited, I think we've gone a bit astray of comparing TV Ollie, to comic one.

Though to be fair, he did admit that there were some unforseen elements (he had wanted just an appearance, he hadn't accounted for an actual crime needing to be stopped). Less Batman Gambit than Xanatos Speed Chess.

And note that flashback-Deathstroke had two eyes. I'm guessing that after he takes the inevitable arrow to the face, the present-day conspirators will reveal their hired assassin (unmasked for a face-to-face meeting), and his eyepatch. . .

Im still really enjoying this show. It does seem to be getting a bit better with each episode. Yes, his partner dressing up as Arrow wasnt really much of a surprise. I like how all of the flash backs kind of tie into what is going on with the show.

Remeber, for those of you who liked Smallville, the first few season were hard to watch.


I tried later seasons (when we get Aqualad and Cyborg and Ollie) and... it was still as hard to watch as before.

I have the same problem there as with the Merlin series - 4 seasons in, and Arthur still doesn't realize the blatantly obvious, that Merlin is a wizard. Because "hey, that's what it was like in the original myth" - nevermind that the series went soooo far off the original myth (Nimue as an evil witch not even related to Excalibur, Lancelot dies even before Arthur becomes kings, Guinevere as an... african-albionian, I guess?)... same way, I was frustrated at Smallville trying to stay true to the "status quo" and throw in anything from clones to memory wipes to ensure Lex never remembers/realizes that Clark is Superman/boy.

I'd watch Arrow, but I just know I'll end up disappointed. I'm gonna check back in a year and read the episode synopsises, and will see whether this is worth watching.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

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.
