Question for those who saw it:  is the 3D worth the extra cost of admission?  Or does it seem tacked on or superfluous?

Go see it in IMAX- the entire movie was filmed with an IMAX camera

I read it wasn't

Quote
If you are wondering whether it is worth it to see it in Imax 3-D, then the answer is more complicated than you might think. It definitely enhanced the experience, but I am not sure if it needed to be Imax. Since only portions of the film were shot in Imax, the aspect ratio is constantly changing, which can be annoying. I would probably recommend seeing it just in 3-D, as some of the shots look incredible just because of their depth. The only downside is that the 3-D is very cool at the beginning, but as you get used to it, it stops being noticeable.

Just because we are the minority on this forum does not mean that we are wrong on the issue.


So you are saying the Native American's are right then.  stirthepot

Side note on the Native American / Indian.  Upon moving to New Mexico I learned that the Indians here prefer to be called Indians.  All the references you see around here pretty much all say Indian, from Indian tacos to Indian dances to the Indian Culture Center.  Generally, they think "Native American" is a stupid term.  Using just "Native" is acceptable.

I prefer whitebread over whitey. Whitey has a negative connotation.
I also prefer just "pale" as opposed to "paleskin".
Caucasian is just a bizarre word. Don't use it to describe me, thank you.

I wonder if these "Natives" care about my concerns?

Your persecution complex is about to achieve orbit.

If it doesn't matter to them what the name is, what's wrong with using something that isn't a slur?

The biggest problem I have with it is that we have a branch of the government deciding what is and isn't "offensive" based on speech. If you guys so clearly want to believe in the free market then why can't the USPTO sit back and watch the trademark wither away because the American people don't buy the products it's associated with?  

Why is it is so difficult to understand that this is out and out racism.  Redskin is NOT a tribal name, nor is it a person's name.  It's a racist slur.  Indians have been trying to get it banned for ages.  This isn't a new endeavor created by a "PC crowd".  If there was a team called the New York Kikes or the San Diego Tar Babies, would that be okay?  

And the American people have repeatedly proven that they aren't ALWAYS going to do the right thing.  As a matter of fact, if the government DIDN'T step in from time to time, we'd still have lynchings, whites only water fountains and segregation in many areas.

1. I never denied that it's offensive or racist.

2. Lynchings, whites only water fountains, and segregation are a far cry from a corporate logo and team name. In fact they're not even in the same ball park. We're not talking about basic human rights here, what we're talking about is hurting people's feelings. It's a slippery slope when the government starts making decisions based off of hurt feelings.
I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt but the fact that Zeke agrees with you could be a hint that you might be wrong on this one. smile

I'm not so sure that Zeke does agree with me. His opinion from what I can tell is "Damn liberals are trying to force change on us again". My opinion is more rooted in the fact that I don't think the Government should decide what "hurts people feelings". The free market should do that in this case because it is a company selling a product. In this case the product name just happens to be offensive.

I know there are limits to the "Free Market" principle. We can't let companies do whatever they want all the time. In this case though we seem to be saying "it's ok for the government to deny trademark protection because the trademark hurts people's feelings". Which to me is a huge difference from a company that is actively denying people's rights or actively hurting the community. "Feelings" can be tricky.

In a free market, trademarks wouldn't exist.

I guess my beer bill works out to $40/wk. Was spending closer to $55 before I cut back last month. 

Seltzer is far cheaper in 2-liter bottles than in single-serving cans. My seltzer habit only costs me 40 cents a day.

Have you ever thought about getting a kegerator? I've built two out of old refrigerators and it's not as difficult as it seems. A 5 gallon keg from the local brewery is $75 and a 7.5g is $90. The 5 gal one lasts my wife and I just about a month drinking one or two beers per night each.

Yeah, count me as another seltzer / club soda convert.  I used to not like it at all, but I've now acquired the taste and it's such a great guilt-free not-water thing to drink.  I keep considering joining the soda stream bandwagon because I like it so much.

Do it! I've been using one for 6 or 7 years and I've got nothing bad to say about it. Just replaced our original at the end of last year with one that holds the bigger canister.

Well, I honestly don't know how long you are under any kind of influence, but as long as its detectable in your system, you are liable to lose your license here in Denmark so..Don't do drugs and drive is the message :-)

That's basically how it is here in Washington state now. The legalization bill made it a crime to have a minuscule amount in your system while driving, even if you haven't consumed any in days or weeks. It really angered the medical users.

In Denmark its illegal to drive in up to a week after ingesting any kind of weed. It stays in the body for a long time. Cannabis can be in the body up til several weeks after ingesting it, and if you are driving while that can be found, your drivers license will be revoked immediately.

Driving while under any kind of influence is both dangerous and stupid.

You aren't implying that because it can be detected after weeks, that you're under the influence for that long, are you?

"All required parts contained within" would be an alternative slogan. Tongue

Thats actually pretty damn good! I just doubt any MMO's will go for it these days. I'm pretty sure ESO will featuer an in-game shop of sorts as well.

There isn't an F2P game that couldn't say the same thing. You get everything required for free.

I hope you are wrong with that, single payer government run health care would be an absolute disaster for most americans.   The insurance I have now is excellent insurance and costs far less then the massive taxes that would be needed to pay for single payer coverage.   It would be the same for a majority of americans.   And if you try to tell me that we will get pay increases from not having employers paying for coverage that will make up for that I will have to laugh for about 3 days at the absurdity of such a statement.   Companies will cut the coverage and keep the savings for profit, that is what companies do.

I don't think you understand single payer. Single payer does not equal government run health care, nor does it mean free health care. To boil it down, it basically means government run health insurance. Think Medicare for everyone.

Are beta characters being carried over or wiped?  I assume wiped, but sometimes they let you bring them with.  Spending a ton of time in beta then having to redo all the quests when it officially launches is a path to an early burnout for me.  Don't want to make that mistake again.  smile

I doubt they'll be saved this early on. It will probably be clear when there are no more wipes. Open beta, usually.

Of course your party gains politically by people being hurt as much they can be by the shutdown as you can blame the opposing party for everything.

We don't gain politically. We don't want people to be hurt. That's why the Senate has passed four bills to reopen the budget, and House Democrats are standing in the rain right now calling for Boehner to allow a vote.
