161  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: What the Hell Color is This Dress? on: March 02, 2015, 09:04:43 PM
Color me confused. I saw a quick clip about this on the news the other day, but didn't get the whole story. The one I saw on the news looked white and gold. Since I didn't know the whole story, I thought the argument was about whether to cal it a white dress or a gold dress..

The picture in this thread is obviously blue/black to me...

and the Vine link looks fake.

I can do lucid dreaming from time to time... sometimes full blown control, sometimes partial control. most times, once I start to get control I wake up.

So, funny story:  I'm now really into exploring and last night I am out there jumping away, just having a blast.  Completely forgot about checking my fuel.  Ended up in God-knows-where with no fuel and absolutely nothing around.  I was toast.  So I decided to fly into a sun and see how hot I could get my hull.  Result.... 325 percent before basically melting into oblivion.    icon_biggrin

Shouldn't you have been able to point to a nearby system, throttle up and coast there? It "might" take a while, but I think you can!

Don't agree with canceling it.. heck if they cancel it, they won't make any money, so maybe give a big middle finger to the terrorists and release it for free so everyone can see it.

Quote from: Turtle on December 12, 2014, 11:30:25 PM

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???? 

May be..
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.

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.

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.

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

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.
