A pair of confused llamas wreaked havoc in Sun City, Arizona, this afternoon as they ran through the streets while being chased by police.

Itís unclear where the llamas originated, or how they broke free, but little did they know that their brief dash for freedom would be enjoyed across the country.

My in-laws let the then-7yo play Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed.  And there were no qualms about letting the 4yo watch.

I used to be a bagger.  I prefer to do it myself when possible, as then, I have no issues with things getting crushed or destroyed that aren't my own fault.

My friend's mom used to humor my gripes about her store's baggers until I pulled her onions out of the bag that now smelled like fabric softener sheets.

When they take the gloves off of the Turing test that they hold every year, I'll be worried. I might not be able to beat Watson at Jeopardy, but I'm pretty sure I'm a better dinner companion at least 60% of the time.

They leave the door open at the end for a second series.  There's a cameo from a known name character at the end.

If The Bletchley Circle couldn't get more than seven episodes, I don't hold out much hope for the Brits giving her a vehicle.

Looking at Wiki, she's in the new Cinderella movie and will make an appearance in Avengers 2.

I wound up using Beetle for some of the flying races.  I like the feel of his flight better than Iron Man, but of course it's probably all mental.

I should really try to remember about the stud multipliers when I play any LEGO game from here on out instead of blowing studs on character unlocks.

I'm trying for 100%, have 60% of the gold bricks, and am ~35% complete.

The LEGO Marvel game is excellent as an open-world game.

The rating doesn't matter to me.  I can handle mature content, but would like it to be handled decently.  Blood, guts, language, nudity, etc.  as long as they're delivered appropriately and not just for shock value, I'm fine with it.
14  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron on: February 24, 2015, 06:56:58 PM
Iron Man made that decision in his main line of films.  Nick Fury was the head of an international agency.  Black Widow testified on Capitol Hill.  Captain America was in the history books for 65 years.  Thor is a god.  I have to imagine the media coverage on Banner was the lead for weeks during his escape and evasion.

So that pretty much leaves Hawkeye as the only one of the Avengers with even the patch of not having his face been having splashed on the front pages.

My personal favorite was that there were two Gamestops that were literally one block apart due to the EBGames acquisition.  I went in on release day for a game, was told that I was out of luck due to all copies being reserved, proceeded to walk to the other one, and purchase one and headed home to play.

More dated than Code Complete, and less of immediate use to me.  It's much more of the high level design/project management aspects of it, which are important, but of less use to me presently.

What does your team need to do this offseason?

Bills: Rebuild at Offense.  Again.  Rex Ryan comes in as head coach after being fired by the in-division Jets, which finished 4-12.  Kyle Orton decided to retire rather than stick around, and we will probably get to see another year of EJ Manuel struggle on the big stage, including in London vs. the Jaguars during Pink month.

If you say you want the balls between 12.5 and 13.5 do you really mean it?
12.5 psi and -15 degrees in Green Bay, the ball will loose something.
13.5 psi and it's 107 in Miami, the ball will gain something.

You are preemptively fired as my travel agent. 

And it has never hit 107 in Miami. Tongue
