I liked it a lot but can't say I loved it.  I think I prefer The Avengers and Ironman1 over GotG but I will look forward to GotG2 as it was enjoyable.  I guess I was hoping for a little more uniqueness compared to other Marvel films, it had some but I thought it would really break the mold of this type of flick.

I'm with Zinfan on this one. I liked it a lot too hut wasn't blown away by it.

I will say that i wished this was the film that Ice Pirates should have been!

Quote from: Dante Rising on August 08, 2014, 03:23:40 PM

I'm surprised that so many people,are picking house two, although it does fall under the old mantra of "location, location, location". my one added concern with house number ONE is that the appraisal was supposed to take 48-72 hours to get a response back. It has now been 12 days. Our mortgage broker said the appraiser is having a very difficult time coming up with a number.

I'm guessing that he is looking at the amount the builder put into the home (all the receipts), but can't properly marry that to the location, where it is about $80,000 above the other homes in the immediate area.

one other fact :

House 1 selling price: $200,000.
town's average home price (population 9800 people) $135,000

House 2 selling price: $205,000
Town's average home price (population 2300 people) $212,000

I think part of the problem is I'm emotionally invested in house one because I love the history behind it and the fact that one main rebuilt it as a labor of love

Two things.

1. Again - you can't ever change the neighbourhood and the train will also always be there and you will never get used to the 'white noise' people will tell you it ends up being. You will always love the home but hate, hate, hate the area where it is located plain and simple.

2. Another red flag for me is the capital already invested in it - My gut instinct is that he over-improved the home for the area and you will have a tough time ever getting the investment back out SHOULD you ever decide to sell in the future.


While the other home lacks the 'character' that you love in home #1 you will have a nice home with peace and quiet to enjoy an adult beverage while planning how to mould your new home into what you would like and not worry about a train every 3hrs or so. Your planning also has room for additional equity improvements given your figures.

hot dogs loaded or plain - makes no difference to me.
Same for the cooking method - boiled/steamed or grilled. I loves them all.

You can't change your neighbourhood and thus should take the house with the better of the two. You can improve the interior as time comes.
Easy decision.

Case closed.

Honestly Ed - I didn't mean this to get political. Apologies - heck I'm Canadian so you can take that apology with %10000000000 honesty.

The 'nothing to see here' was meant purely as I am confident that our infrastructure could take care of this much more efficiently than where it is being fought now and that beating the drums of despair gets a little old now a day.
51  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Ebola outbreak on: July 31, 2014, 06:58:58 PM
I'm not saying that nothing will go wrong - but if a case(s) does show up here we have the infrastructure to better 'combat' the occurrence.

Look at the footage of the medical facilities there - beds right beside each other etc. 
52  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Ebola outbreak on: July 31, 2014, 05:14:22 PM
wow! Talk about doomsday here guys.

The 'experts' are all saying that should it migrate to NA we have tried and true quarantine procedures that would serve to greatly lessen the impact.

Nothing to see here - move along (or keep watching Fox News..... ninja)

I grabbed this title again as well as a PS4 last night. Thanks to EBgames offering it for $25 when I traded in the PS3 version. thumbsup

I only played up until
Spoiler for Hiden:
they meet Joel's brother/friend? the one with all the booby traps
on the PS3 and I'm looking forward to jumping back in after reading the last few posts.
There was something 'just not right' with me and the controller/shooting on the PS3. Granted I'm more used to the xbox controller but all this talk makes me more excited to pick this up and get back in.

I have only begun eating yogurt within the last year.

#AmericansAreWeird icon_razz

But in all seriouness Lettuce - I eat it just like it is. Nothing fancy - just the fat free options. I've found that I do like Greek style yogurt - over the past year or so up here its all the rage on commercials. Greek style is thicker and creamier than 'normal' yogurt. I will say that Greek yogurt with fruit on the bottom is lame - the yogurt is so thick that it makes it hard to actually stir it up and distribute the fruit because your spoon is totally mired in it. #FirstWorldProblems  Roll Eyes

I wanted to like Demons Souls but just couldn't hack it - something with the setting/levels just didn't click with me.
When Dark Souls came out I jumped in with both feet and loved the game.
When I got stuck I headed to YouTube to look for tips and tricks etc. That alone made my 140+ hrs with the game highly enjoyable and rewarding.

I'm far form hardcore and am 'old' slywink

At work now so I haven't clicked the link but last night on Fallon they showed a trailer. 
Suffice it to say that I laughed - in the trailer I saw there was an instance of them looking for diamonds under an old lady. There was talk of a turkey and giblets and some dust. 
I'll remember that for quite some time to come.

Loot that drops is all yours. Each player gets their own drops and you can't see theirs either.
Beat the game last night on Tor1 - took 2 tries to get it done. Talk about tough ass battle.

Adventure mode is fun and I got some great upgrades over the expansion - talk about weird though: replacing legendaries with yellows smile took me a while to get over the mindset that the yellows were in fact better than my oranges.

Overall, at it's core the game is fun, but at the same time I feel a little cheated considering the narrow scope of their game design.

I haven't played anything but the beta, but keep in mind that this is the first try at this.  Took COD 4 times to get it just right and in my opinion it took Gears 3 tries (though 1 was really fun).

Wait a second - are you saying that you like Gears? We're gonna need to see some proof of that  eek icon_lol

Don't do it. Don't empower her anymore than she already is.
You cant fix stupid.

IF you decide to move ahead let her boss know what you plan to discuss and provide a copy of the discussion points. That way you're covered if she tries to claim that you said different.

But again - don't do it. Focus on what you already do well and keep a copy of all communications.
