Sure if you and your buddy want to send dick pictures to each other for hours, the battery is not going to last...

That isn't a matter of want, it's a matter of need.

The difference between the public reaction to the iPad versus the iWatch is that there was at least SOME recognition of what the iPad was good for.  

p.s. don't expect the iWatch to replace your phone unless you want to recharge it every 3 hours.

Okay, just got around to watching it and Carol stole that episode.  Her interview was fantastic.  She deliberately played weak so they would underestimate her.  I don't believe she's cracked at all.  She knows exactly what she's doing.  I swear, she's rapidly coming up on Daryl when it comes to favorite character.

Nah.  You've just been exposed to poorly written movies and television for so long that its just natural for you to see those things as examples of good writing.  You'll grow out of it eventually...I hope.   Tongue

As for the supports? This show has never been about realism.

Was it the zombies that gave it away?  It was the zombies, wasn't it?

As you know I don't mean it that way, but the flaws in writing, directing, etc, that pulls you out of the show. Obviously it happens with me a lot more than you guys with this show. icon_wink

Some flaws and missteps exist, sure.  But many of the things that you feel are wrong are simply due to the fact that your version of the way things should go often doesn't mesh with how things happen in real life.  You look for James Bond and when you get Joe Blow, you mistakenly believe it's an example of bad writing.

My brother deals with it in his own way  He bought a camp in West Virginia that was a gay resort and has been building it up over the years.  Now they have their own world where they don't even have to deal with small minded idiots like that.  

Of course, he wasn't too bothered by them before considering he's 6'2" and his partner of the last 15 years is an ex-marine who's 2 inches taller than him.   icon_wink

The comic had many of the things you've complained about in regards to the show.  I suspect you'd accuse it of being horribly written as well.  Although you'd most likely buy every issue, if your past behavior is any indication.   icon_razz
136  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] The Walking Dead Season 5 on: February 24, 2015, 08:43:21 PM
For someone who constantly refers to the show as horribly written, you sure seem to never miss an episode.   icon_wink

p.s. They didn't show the car stopping because of a dead battery.  They showed the car already stopped, then mentioned the dead battery.  It's entirely possible they stopped to stretch their legs and then weren't able to start the RV because of the battery. 

But honestly, if you're finding something like that to be that much of a distraction, I have to wonder how you can ever enjoy 90 percent of what's on tv (or in theaters).
137  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] The Walking Dead Season 5 on: February 19, 2015, 02:56:07 PM
I think the first person you mention was already shown at the beginning of the season, just not identified.

It just became goofy when he suddenly hit the 18 foot tall level at one point.  I really, really hated that.  And the Hulk dogs looked like Glen Quagmire on all fours.

I want to like Ang's version because, like you said, he was playing up the character of Bruce Banner first and foremost, but good lord did he screw the pooch on everything else.

As to Ang Lee's movie, I didn't buy into the hate and though the cinematic presentation was different, I felt it delivered until his dad turned into a cloud. Then? Then it was stupid. Comparing the doctors, I felt Bana's cold delivery was better insofar as Banner had emotional issues and was played very well.

That was kind of my take, although I wasn't a big fan of Ang's attempt to tie Hulk's physical size to his rage level.  And the Hulk dogs. 

You know what?  Never mind.  I think I just remembered I hate it now.
144  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Man From UNCLE from Guy Ritchie on: February 12, 2015, 02:51:44 PM
I watched the original when it was rebroadcast years later on a local cable channel.  I quickly became a Man from U.N.C.L.E. junkie as a teenager.  Hell, I even sought out and read the novelizations that were released.  David McCallum's Illya Kuryakin was the man. Napoleon Solo only less so. 

I really hope Richie plays up the silliness and fun of the original series.  And I hope they don't hand TOO many emotions to Illya.  It was always fun seeing him struggle with the "heart on the sleeve" approach to life exhibited by Americans on the show.

They manage it and shuffle it around as they see fit, I believe.  They do include a bunch of info, but I don't recall ever seeing anything that amounted to a "heads up" blurb about investing.   As I said, if you're looking for any kind of hands on control of your investments, Betterment is not for you.  But if you want to ease into the world of stocks and bonds and let someone else drive while you watch the road, it's a great service so far.
146  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Taco loving artist sneaks photos into Grammy museum on: February 11, 2015, 04:33:34 PM
I love it.

He snuck a bunch of doctored photos into the Grammy museum and no one noticed them for a month or so. 





Not sure if this little blurb from an article is true, but it made me laugh all the same:

Quote
Grammy officials were confused by who could have smuggled the pictures into the building. It was noticed by a museum-goer who asked a security guard who Paz was.

He replied: I think hes in One Direction.

My god, I would loved to have seen that!
148  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: TurboTax or an Accountant? on: February 10, 2015, 08:23:59 PM
Love it.  But it's for those who just want to toss money into the world of stocks and bonds without actually learning much about it.  That's not to say you can't, they include a ton of info, but they do manage it all for you.  They go with Vanguard so I'm pretty comfortable with their choices.

And then there's that whole, stealing a writer's manuscript for the original Matrix, then running it into the ground.

I'm pretty sure that's not true.

I just finished up my taxes this weekend after betterment.com released my dividend statements.  I used Turbotax like I always have.  I've never had any problems and my taxes take all of 30 minutes to finish. 
151  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [teaser trailer] Fantastic 4 on: January 28, 2015, 02:20:26 PM
Their depiction of Galactus may have been a travesty, but I thought they gave us a pretty decent Silver Surfer.  But yeah, storm cloud Galactus ensured that the film made it onto my list of most hated superhero films.

And I think Loki works so well in the movies is mostly because Hiddleston is just a fantastic actor who gave it his all.  If they get a great actor and they avoid "modernizing" the character and doing things like adding constant references to social media (God, I hate it when they do crap like that in an attempt to connect with youth), I can see it working.

But I have no faith that Sony can pull this off.  They've already shown that they have no interest in creating good stories to support their superhero films.  At least not since Spiderman 2 (the Raimi years, not that god awful reboot crap).

Love and like are two different things.  You can absolutely love someone without liking them.  Love is an action. 

I would argue that you're describing the physical act and not the kind of love that should result in a marriage in the first place.

Just got a PS4 for Christmas and of course, I can't log in to play anything.  It's new, so unless I want to create a new profile to play, I have to wait for PSN to stabilize.

I don't know what these script kiddies are trying to prove, but we really do need to create stricter laws and harsher punishments for this kind of action.

I also really enjoyed it.  I binge watched it over the space of 4 days.  It fills the hole that was created by Spartacus ending.  And it's not nearly as ridiculously stupid as Da Vinci's Demons.

Are you kidding me?  Alec may be a giant dick most of the time, but he does have the balls to call out someone like a Kardashian for whoring herself and her family for stardom.  I'd savor that interview like a fine wine.
