I like how you worked "straight" into that reply to keep him from panicking.

"World According to Zeke" I'd imagine.  That or "Who Am Zeke?" which would imply an existential crisis in his life.

Why do we allow the choice of "white meat" when talking about chicken in restaurants or grocery stores?  White people are NOT chicken!  We're a brave lot!

What's with all this talk of a "Castle Doctrine"?  What kind of liberal plot is this?  Only castles can have doctors now?!?!

Who invented IQ tests and why don't they include a section on NASCAR?!?!

Fucking Magnets, How Do They Work???

The independent thing is an ongoing joke with ATB.  But you're right on the money with everything else!  The Zeke and I were married in a civil union years ago.  Thankfully this country has opened its mind since then and we're planning a Fall wedding!

My god, is there ANYTHING better than a Zeke post?  Especially when he's not quite sure what's going on?  I love the internet!  This almost makes up for the US loss against Belgium earlier.

You're just now figuring out that American politics has issues with bias?  You DO realize this has been the case for every single political system on earth since the invention of the words, "I don't agree!"?

I know you like to come across as someone who's above it all.  Someone who's capable of observing us earthlings with a fair and unbiased view, but let's cut the schtick:  you're just as biased as any of us to a particular world view.  Read the title of this thread, for cryin' out loud.

Now, how about trying to post with an objective bent for a while and drop the inflammatory rhetoric.  Then we can reevaluate your pleas for an unbiased discussion with serious intent.

I'm not sure what film you were watching, but Hellboy (and Hellboy 2) had fantastic pacing for an action film.  As did Blade II (the only decent film in the franchise, if you ask me).  

Pacific Rim was slow for me, yes.  But that was only because Guillermo tried too hard to flesh out his 2 dimensional characters.   It wasn't because he couldn't plot out a fight scene.  Quite the contrary.

 icon_lol  you're "locking thread"?

Ah man, thanks.  That made my day.  

Anyway, I addressed the situation earlier, as did Issie.  I wasn't aware there was further discussion to be had.

But that's neither here nor there since you locked the thread.   icon_lol

It can't be as bad as 24.  I love watching that show to catch scenes in which Jack informs everyone that he's going to be able to outrun the drone thanks to the awesome turbo power of the 2014 Nissan Rogue...

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.
185  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Pacific Rim 2 Catch All - Because it is coming in 2017! on: June 27, 2014, 06:33:33 PM
Yup.  On a second and third viewing, it just became more and more apparent that the film was...well...a little too slow for a giant robot film.  At least slower than I've come to expect from my boy Guillermo.  I hope he finds his footing for the second one because when he scores, he usually scores big.

How does helping in syria keep us alive?  

I wasn't being literal.

If I remember correctly, you believe we shouldn't involve ourselves in foreign affairs in any way whatsoever.  So you'll probably not understand the need for trying to keep regions stable in order to protect our interests (as Issie notes above).  But the need is very real nonetheless.

Very simple question that isn't meant to trivialize things, but is intended to find out a baseline where you're concerned:  should we have stayed out of World War II and NOT acted to prevent Germany from overrunning Europe?  
188  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Obama seeking 1/2 Billion for Syrian Opposition on: June 26, 2014, 08:43:24 PM
America (and almost every large nation) has provided support via weapons to countries they later end up fighting.  The problem is that sometimes you have to support the lesser evil to combat the much greater one.   We were buddies with Saddam during the Iran-Iraq war.  Then we weren't a few years later.

But not doing so can result in consequences far worse than looking hypocritical.

Diplomacy is a game that often just comes down to staying alive, not winning.

If they play like they did against Germany during the next game, the US doesn't have much of a chance.  They weren't horrible, but the certainly weren't aggressive enough.  It was like they were afraid to cross over to Germany's side of the field.

One things for certain, from 1933 to 1938 marketing for the Cleveland Indians was handed over to someone's 9 year old nephew.
192  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Redskins Lose Trademark on: June 26, 2014, 01:07:52 PM
I think that would be a fair compromise.  Honor the people you've chosen as your trademark and all that.

I do wish they'd never changed Gund Arena to the Quicken Tax Shell Arena or whatever it is now.  I liked having a sports stadium that sounded like an STD.  icon_frown

Another group is planning a lawsuit against the Chief Wahoo logo for the Cleveland Indians.  Unlike Snyder though, Cleveland was already in the process of phasing out the logo in favor of a red block letter C.   I think they realize it was coming and they most likely won't be making as big a stink about it.  Fans, maybe a bit though.  But that's to be expected.

No but they do have the power to strip legally obtained TM's whenever they want apparently. So why not benefit mankind?

They didn't just do this out of the blue and of their own accord.  How many times does this need to be repeated?

Quote from: ATB on June 24, 2014, 10:34:03 PM

I find the band name Niggas With Attitude offensive. Same with Black Entertainment Television...

Why?

You've never once been the target of either of those epithets.  You're just creating silly analogies.

But if you want to lash out effectively, then simply take your case to the uspto and claim that you find it offensive and want the trademark protections afforded them pulled.  Anyone can do it.  If we couldn't we'd be living in the government you oftentimes accuse us of having.

Quote from: ATB on June 24, 2014, 10:34:03 PM

Oh and perhaps the point that Zeke is trying to make is that why are people sitting around fretting about a team name even if if it is offensive to them?

Congratulations on coming to the conclusion that everyone who fought for civil rights or marriage equality that weren't a minority or gay were just busybodies.
200  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Redskins Lose Trademark on: June 24, 2014, 07:46:11 PM
...or maybe to address a minority's decades long grievance that an offensive name is being used as a federally sanctioned trademark?

And just because they helped a minority, that doesn't mean they've used up all their power and can now no longer address other issues.  

Also, they don't have the power to make medicines (or anything) free.  Not sure where that concern even came from.   icon_confused

Would you rather have it that all rulings they make can never be altered by a plea from the people?

p.s. Snyder is FAR from being some poor schlep fighting for his rights in this matter.  He's "the man" you seem to distrust in most of your posts.  One minute you're upset because successful business people are getting their way, now you're upset when a successful businessman DOESN'T get his way?  Make up your mind, my man.    

Oh, and if Snyder loved the name so much, why did he ditch it when FedEx offered him a boatload of cash to change their stadium's name?
