Was waiting for people to catch up so I could talk about it:
Spoiler for Hiden:
He'll be back, but I wouldn't be surprised if he has an extended disappearance, either for an episode or two, or they'll advance time again within the story.
They'll definitely have to use Lazarus pit level of plot devices to bring him back. What they showed was a bit much for even a main character to survive. And I do like how they made it really clear that he never really had a chance.
I wonder if they'll take this opportunity to branch off into this green arrow of destiny plotline I've seen elsewhere, where the only reason he is revived is because someone needs him as part of the search for that special arrow. That, or he has some trick up his sleeve with his ex-Argus partner.
I also wonder if Merlin really did put Thea up to this, or if someone was also playing Malcolm by using Thea, sending him that video to force him out of hiding. It seems to go against a lot of what they setup for Malcolm. You know he wants to make her a killer, but drugging someone to make them kill for him doesn't seem his style.
Spoiler for Hiden:
I think Malcolm did put Thea up to it... And didn't drug her either.

Excellent mid-season finale!!! The main actor is finally growing on me and I especially like how they've handled the various interpersonal relationships. The Reverse Flash plotline is really excellent, I have no idea where they are going with that, particularly with the notion that he can look into the future, etc. And that there was another "Flash" present at time of Flash's mother's death - can our Flash go back in time too????
Spoiler for Hiden:
I believe he can in the comics.. eventually... I think this is what the whole learning to go faster is leading up to.
I do wonder why they needed to 1. feed the dinosaur a endangered shark. Couldn't anything fish do? 2. why did they need to create a new dinosaur? Perhaps the story will explain but it just seems contrived.
For the shark thing, what would you suggest? Based on the size of the dinosaur, I doubt it would have breached the water for a trout.. Is this a reboot or a continuation? I haven't been following this..

With tips and advice from this thread, how can I lose?
Make sure to film your training montage or you are doomed to failure... Actually, you need to lose first, then do the montage... Adding a love triangle with your opponents girlfriend helps as well. Also, when you paint the fence, pick a color other than white. you don't want to get sued.

I've been contemplating on buying a Nexus 9 but every time I get close to pulling the trigger I can't find one good reason I'll use it above my phone or my current 4 year old Win 7 laptop which is my primary couch machine.
So how do you use or tablet?
I have an iPad. Primary use is watching movies and amazon prime. Secondary use, some gaming, tertiary use, controlling my AR Drone.

My memory is clouded and sometimes I get details jumbled up with what I remember from the comics. The Beth thing, I always presumed she was kidnapped away from Daryl. The Eugene thing I thought they made pretty clear he was hot for Rosita but again maybe it's just an impression. I'm glad they stuck with the same basic Eugene storyline; I thought I'd heard they were going to do something very different.
I havent seen the latest episode yet, but.. Comic spoiler
Spoiler for Hiden:
In the comic, the sarge and the girl are hooked up, but Eugene wants the girl as well and there were some voyeur scenes with him.
Regular vacuuming and swiffer sweeper type thing is what we use. We also get our dog (Australian Shepherd), shaved/short hair cut once in a while. She still sheds, but when it's cut real short, it's less noticeable.

I'm too old for this shit! I want Call of Duty Simple Warfare without all the techno gizmos everywhere. I would love to see what a WW2, Korea or Vietnam era setting would look like on the new consoles. Did like the incoming tide bit though.
Call of Duty: Original Warfare. Everyone gets a stick for melee and a rock for ranged.

What exactly DID Jesus teach, though? All we have are the written words of so many people...most with agendas...that it's become impossible to know what Christianity really stands for.
I was raised catholic, but this became my problem with all religion... Everything has been handed down by people... You are really putting your faith in the various people of various religions who put their faith in people that have been dead for centuries... Plus, assuming there is a god (or gods), the various books,scrolls, etc were written by people.. How re they supposed to interpret what an almighty being really means?

I think it's an east coast thing, I've never seen anyone get a hot dog without ketchup.
I live in NJ and always put ketchup. not a mustard fan for the most part. I generally like dirty water dogs, since that is what I grew up with. plain, cheese, sometimes chili. Used to have a place that had all sorts of toppings.. corn, baked beans, mashed potatoes, fries, etc.. about 30+ different things. That place was great while it lasted.
Wife and I saw it last night and liked it a lot. I went in expecting a much worse movie, but was actually entertained for most of it. The beginning does drag a little.
Spoiler for Hiden:
There is a funny line referencing the whole aliens rumors/issues that hit the production early on. Aprils cameraman when first hearing about the turtles says some thing like "So, they are aliens?" and April says "no, that would be stupid"
I am not a fan of the current foot clan design. They are just mercs, not ninja's at all
The Shredder suit is a bit too much over the top. WAY too much going on and it wasn't needed.
The turtles are very gears of warzy, but I got used to it and it worked well.
There were a lot of similarities to the original movie. Many similar scenes.
Origin was changed to have a direct link to April O' Neil. not sure if I liked that or not, but wasn't a huge deal.
Side note, $14 for a popcorn and large drink??? I can't believe how expensive it is to go to the movies nowadays.
Expensive??? Try watching a film here in Chicago. I had to prostitute myself in the alley behind the theater to get money for a medium sprite.
...and by prostitute I mean threaten to take off my shirt if they didn't pay me.
Speaking of horrible experiences, I refuse to pay for any movie featuring the Walhberg. My hatred of that schmuck knows no limit.
I think for 3 of us the whole night was about $80. Maybe $25/person for 3 hours of "entertainment" isn't bad? How much would it be in Chicago if everyone ordered a snack and drink as well? Luckily we didn't do dinner first or I would be eating ramen for the rest of the week. :-)
If you have a Starplex Cinema near you, check them out. Generally lower prices on everything and some of them have the deluxe leather reclining seats.
