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.

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.

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

Honestly, I can't afford to start over at entry level salary at this point, and I still need to learn Java for my current job.  I got a late start with my first big boy job in a real city at 31, and the debt load that came from eight years of not working with my degree will haunt me until I die under a mountain of debt.  smile

The wife is off today, so we will be spending time together.  She went from the year end holidays right into having to prep for store inventory.

Saturday will be spent boardgaming, then going to the hockey game.

Sunday will likely be spent oot and aboot with the wife, either looking at houses, archery, or some other stuff.

I knew all the parts, but wanted to confirm and make sure I had it straight.  I still want to be an aerospace engineer when I grow up, but seeing as I'm 38, the time for that may have passed.  smile

Planes are stress tested well beyond the specs that are recommended or set as max operating specs.  Just look at the wing deflection test.

With a tail wind, the plane may be moving faster than the standard speed of sound, but the air that they're moving through, in a relative manner, is slower than the point at which a sonic boom shockwave will form.  You have the speed of sound that changes based on altitude and atmospheric pressure.  You also have measurements of indicated air speed versus true air speed.  

There's a reason that aerospace engineering is usually a masters-level program.
