Enter The Dojo.  This is COMEDY GOLD.  So much of this is sad but true....

As someone who is into martial arts how do you explain so many students playing along with this EFO and telekinesis crap? It seems ripe for Ken to mock if he hasn't done so already.

The only game I purchased during the Autumn sale was Brutal Legend. For $1.99 it was a steal. Didn't know much about it and so far I really like it. Fun with the Jack Black intro and game premise.

Anyone want an invite to Infinity Wars? I think I can get 2 people into the Beta. Send me a PM with your email address.

For those interested in this game you should check out Chesspieceface's nightly twitch broadcast, usually starting around 9pm PST. He will answer questions and discuss deck building and play tactics.

Just can't hold it in any longer, Chiefs 9-0, man it feels good, despite all of the teams flaws, they seem to pull it together and win. I am being realistic, however, and know it won't last, but I have been letting myself enjoy each win for 24 hours before nitpicking on them. Looking forward to the next 3 games because it will give a better idea of where the team will finally end up.

They have a good defense, a fairly safe offense and a veteran coach to keep things running smooth.  Its not flashy but it does win games. 

Unless they play Denver.  icon_wink

As far as Loki in this, I loved Hiddleston's performance in limited screen time, but...
Spoiler for Hiden:
but come ON -- if he can impersonate anyone and everything with no limitation, how am I ever supposed to take a scene in a Thor movie at face value? He's basically a Walking Deus Ex Machina: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/deus%20ex%20machina

Spoiler for Hiden:
Thor saw through his illusion when he visited Loki in jail. Why couldn't he see through him when Loki was on the throne?

Well, I'm glad to see that they've decided that one full song length montage scene at the end of each episode to pad the running time wasn't enough and that they now require one for the opening too.

Wait, so it's because of government regulations that we had companies pulling cheap policy shenanigans?  eek

Companies offer cheap premiums and people are surprised when they don't get the same coverage? Shocking! If only the government could come in and make it all "free".  Roll Eyes

Quote from: Autistic Angel on October 31, 2013, 09:37:11 PM


In short, the ACA was written to allow people to keep their existing plans while forbidding insurance providers from ratcheting up the price for that privilege.  It also requires that insurance companies actually honor the terms of their contracts by paying out when people get sick, rather than rescinding the policy and keeping years of paid premiums for themselves.

This means all those cheap "junk policies" aren't lucrative any more, so the insurance companies are responding by offering comprehensive coverage plans as mandated by the law.

Waitaminute - so prior to Obamacare insurance companies could sell these junk policies and then say "oh you're sick? Tooo bad, your coverage just expired today, so sorry!" without any repercussions? Whatever happened to free market economic principles that were supposed to weed out these kinds of policies? Surely the people would flock to an insurer that offered cheap policies without the shenanigans and, via sound capitalist principles, ensure that the market would drive out the bad policies and only keep the good ones?

Waiting to hear from free market advocates...

Stop pretending that prior to Obamacare we had anything remotely resembling a free market in the health care industry. A free market requires unregulated prices and the ability of any company to enter the market to compete. Companies can only overcharge when the government limits their competition through regulations (i.e., making it too expensive to run a start-up) or outright barriers (e.g., not letting insurance companies do business across state lines).

Godfather 2, Terminator 2, Evil Dead 2, X2, Spider-Man 2, Superman 2, Toy Story 2.....

Not sure about G2 and T2. The second Terminator had better special effects, but the story wasn't better.

Game Developer Tries to Silence YouTube Critic, Discovers Streisand Effect

Quote
Wild Games Studio made their problems even worse by trying to retaliate against Bain. They made a copyright claim against him on YouTube, using a flimsy excuse that he monetizes the videos with advertising (Bain manages a living with his game journalism and announcing) and thus cannot use their assets without their permission. The studio succeeded. YouTube yanked the review. Furthermore, YouTube’s copyright-protection system threatens users that their channel will be deleted if they get three of these takedown claims. In Bain’s case, that would result in the removal of hundreds of videos.

Obviously, the takedown request was a load of crap. They provided Bain access to the game in the first place, knowing he was a critic and knowing he was going to make a video of his experience, only acting when they didn’t get the response they hoped for. It’s the equivalent of a movie studio trying to block the airing of a bad movie review on an entertainment program because it used the footage the studio provided to them.

But you don’t screw with people who are popular on the Internet. Imagine earning the ire of 1.3 million avid gamers. They flooded the Metacritic page for the game and dragged the user score down to .5 out of 10.

I blame Boris and Natasha.

I blame the lack of quality moose porn for the male moose to get excited about. 

Or the overabundance of moose porn is causing the male moose to neglect and have false expectations of the female moose.

Why can't you just lose yourself in the movie?

Because I want the movie to make sense within the X-Men universe. Otherwise I am taken out of the movie wondering wtf is going on.

Sorry...we did learn about that in school.  But it was called "The Time America Tried to Make Canada Feel Good About Itself By Letting Them Shoot at Some Things and Start a Fire".

Granted, the whole section in our history books is comprised solely of that line, but I think it sums up the whole thing quite succinctly. 

I always wondered what a Canadian history book would look like if you took out all references to the United States.  icon_razz
