Each film is probably sufficient to support its own thread in due time.  There's already a Doctor Strange thread.  The Guardians thread will either get a new one or extended.

Absolutely terrible loss by Dallas after the gift they got from Arizona, and a division loss to boot. Hopefully Romo is OK.

X-rays negative.  Which the surgery last December was done due to an injury sustained against the Redskins.

odd choice for a daily sale that looks like a publisher sale. 

Except for the fact that none of the individual items are on sale.

What's on the docket that you bought with your dukats?

I'll either fire up NHL 14 on the 360 or stare at my Steam backlog on Saturday.

Sunday will be oot and aboot, as I'm taking the wife to Pug-O-Ween, followed by dinner to celebrate one of her minions' birthdays.

iOOTP's seasons are on sale too: The 10-season bundles are just $1.99 and the all-in-one bundle is $14.99, a steal for decades of baseball history, including the ability to draft real players when they actually showed up.

The US has decided that every traveller from the affected countries need to be consolidated through five airports.  Plan your iteneraries accordingly.

Quote
Anyone flying to the United States from Ebola-affected countries in West Africa must enter through one of five airports screening for the disease, Jeh C. Johnson, the Homeland Security secretary, said Tuesday as the Obama administration stepped up precautions to stop the spread of the virus.

The government had already instituted temperature checks for West Africans arriving at Kennedy International in New York, Newark Liberty International, Washington Dulles International, O’Hare International in Chicago, and Hartsfield-Jackson International in Atlanta. The five airports already account for 94 percent of all arrivals from the affected countries — Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. A fever is one symptom of the disease and an indication that the person could be contagious.

If there was ever a chance that I would hate voted for Abbott, this statement would put the nail in that coffin.  So if they want to engage in blatant political maneuvering, snake handling, polygamy, or child marriage, their religious freedom should keep them sacrosanct from government oversight?  Bullshit.

Forget the live sporting events through a major network.  You can get MLB and NHL, subject to blackout, direct from the provider.  The NFL just needs to get onboard and stop the licensing with Verizon and DirecTV restrictions to open their customer base.

NY Times

Quote
Just one day after HBO said it would start an Internet-only offering, CBS announced on Thursday its own subscription streaming service that lets people watch its live programming and thousands of current and past shows on demand.
...
The CBS All Access service, at $6 a month, made its debut on Thursday
...
Subscribers will be able to stream local CBS television stations in 14 markets, including Chicago, Los Angeles and New York, with more affiliates expected to join.
...
The CBS service will make available on demand in all United States markets episodes of current shows like “The Big Bang Theory” and “NCIS” the day after they are shown, and more than 5,000 episodes of shows it is calling CBS Classics like “Star Trek,” “Cheers” and “MacGyver.”

Advertisements on the live stream will be the same as those on the traditional CBS broadcast. For the on-demand programming, the typical 12 to 16 minutes of ads an hour will be reduced 25 percent. CBS Classics will stream without ads.

Politics and religion don't match well in my opinion. 

For millennia, and in many places even today, they're inseparable.

The more things change...

Look at the history of religion.  What you believe is determined primarily by your parents, your country, and the time frame that you were born in.  There were no spontaneous Jewish communities that were found in the Americas when it was explored.  There were no adherents to the Aztec religion in the Old World. 

Religion was spread peaceably through missionaries and through fire and sword.  But the spread was always performed by man.  The consolidation and fragmentation of doctrines were performed by men.

I'm glad that you have found things that work for you, ATB.  Most would not attempt to dissuade you from your faith.  but there are many others that have chosen a different path, one that does not rely on organizations that use emotional arguments and threats of pain, separation, and loss as motivations to bring them into the fold.  The scriptures, even the words of Christ, reinforces the idea that you are nothing without him, that they are of no value unless they believe.

Those that go on a path without faith find meaning in their own lives, accomplishments, and family, choosing to make the most of their time in this world.  Even if the faithful believe that we were placed here with special purpose, why seek to deny the opportunities and joys that this world brings?  In the mind of the religious, did he not place this world here for that purpose, or is it one giant test of asceticism?

I'll finish paying for the services of my wedding photographer, probably purchasing the use of an awning, as it's currently expected that there will be rain on my wedding day.  And it's anything but ironic.

I had to smile when I read this. My wife and I got married in her living room by a public notary, no ceremony, no guests, the only expenses were the rings and the new dress she wanted, although she specifically bought one that she could wear to any formal occasion (she's the money manager in the family).

We will celebrate 35 years of marriage next month. Mind you, it will be between the releases of Assassin's Creed Unity and Far Cry 4, so she understands we will only be going away for the weekend slywink

I might be taking a look at Alien Isolation, but some of the discussion I saw about save points being far apart has me concerned.

It would have been easier.  and a hell of a lot cheaper.

I don't know how Stealth it is, considering there's a graphic on the slide show, and the banner ad was for that before it got replaced by Alien Isolation.
