Trailer is out!

http://youtu.be/RFinNxS5KN4

Eh, looks fine but certainly didn't blow me away. 

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.

My opponent got hurt so now my fight is on Dec 7 instead of Dec 28, with a new opponent.  Diet time!
Isn't that kind of the point in fights for someone to get hurt? You should get the win...

Quote from: Soulchilde on November 12, 2014, 04:18:40 PM

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.

I have a tempurpedic one from Staples that I like. Don't get the all leather one though.. I thought it was horrible.

It is $300 though. If you are not in a hurry, you can wait for a sale.
Very adjustable.

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.

The teaser is in Farley's link anyway... might be NSFW!

"Might" is quite the understatement. There was more NSFW material in that 30 second trailer than in most porn movies I've seen.  eek

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.

Caught it tonight. Really any time travel movie at this point I expect the time travel stuff is going to be silly and I just ignore it.

Aside from that these were my questions/problems:
Spoiler for Hiden:
Actually, I had another thought. So in the original xmen movie timeline Trask is killed and Mystique is caught at some point. But there were no Sentinels in the original 3 movies, so they waited from the 70s until some time in the 2000s to get the Sentinel program up and running again even though everyone was supposed to immediately now be frightened of mutants? Mystique was around, so the dissection of Mystique would have to have happened after Last Stand.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I thought about this and I think in the original timeline Trask is killed, but not as publiclly
1) This was mostly Trasks idea and he was the main brains behind it, so that could mean a delay in development
2) There was no public eye opening of mutants at the time of his death, the governemtn kept it hidden
3) This is why the sentinal program started late in the original timeline
In the new timeline, everything is now public, because of the changes..

No, I mean I bought the OEM version from Newegg. From what I understand the OEM version can only be activated on a single motherboard without paying to renew the license.
Not really, you should be able to re-use it. You also may get away with dropping the old drive in the new PC and just having to load new drivers. You may have to re-activate it and might have to call in to MS, but if you do, just tell them you had to reload because of a system error.

for the ending..

Spoiler for Hiden:
my guess is that the blood from the omega allowed him to go back further in time then the blood from the Alpha. His problem now is that if he dies, he starts all over again.. Image if he forgets, then dies at like 90..

My wife and I saw it and liked it.
I had read the novel first, so some things threw me off a little, but I enjoyed it. I prefer the graphic novels ending though.

Depends on what kind of vacation you want.. Maybe you are not sure yourself? For our "real" vacations, we are like Lee. Save up to do it right. We do have mini vacations sometimes though where it is just to get away and these are on the cheap with no extra funds really. Just spend the day in the hotel room or by the hotel pool.
Depending on where you live, you can do a 5 day vaca in Vegas for around $700 or so (This is from NJ to Vegas)..
Maybe you don't really want to go to Portland?

Yeah, those fake voice overs were as stilted as ever.  But totally destroying a house looks pretty damn sweet.  We'll see how close the real game comes to that, though.
