I finally watched this movie tonight. Why would his claws grow back after being cut off? Why would a robot on his heart stop his DNA from healing? Why would drilling into his claws cause him to grow old while the old guy grows young?

Why can't you just lose yourself in the movie?

Did you watch to the very end of the credits?

I didn't want to sit through all the credits, so I just clicked "A" after they started and....
Spoiler for Hiden:
I read Dr Friedlander's assessment of me  eek:

Quote
From the office of Dr Isiah Friedlander
Client Notes - Highly Confidential

Tedious and predictable, but will pay for the second home.
Tries to do the right thing - poor judgment as to what that is.
Searching for a role model in all the wrong places.
Reckless financially.
Thinks of self as above certain temptations.
Sexually needy, heartless - uses and discards women - wonders why cannot form real relationships!
Ignores people closest to him.
Investor type - which is odd given risk taking as unlikely to make old bones.
Vindictive bully.
Magpie who steal whatever takes their fancy, time and again.
Not very into yoga, it seems.
Not really into physical fitness.
Out going and friendly, in a terrifying kind of way.
Likes to get things done - which is frightening!
What a bizarre assortment of problems.

Weird  icon_wink. Is this what other people saw too?
I checked my stats and it seems that I played each of the three characters about 17 hours apiece, if I'm reading that right. So a total of 50 hours. Will have to play a bit more to get that one dollar per hour payback I'm looking for  nod

I keep forgetting about my therapist.  his report will probably be a lonely one.

About Friedlander (some end game spoilers ahead):

Spoiler for Hiden:
If you do enough of the missions about Michael's visits with Friedlander, everything eventually goes to hell and you're given the choice of killing him or letting him go.  Yeah, I chose to kill him.

Why would their Social Security checks be late?  Mandatory spending isn't stopped by a government shutdown.

The money to cover Social Security payments would still be authorized, but with 800,000 federal employees furloughed -- and the remaining "essential" personnel working without pay -- the system would be unable to review claims, process new ones, or correct for unexpected circumstances.  Short staffed?  Failed equipment?  Data error?  Sorry, the department that deals with that is closed this month.

That's one hell of a claim.  Can you cite proof for that?

Also, government employees who work during a shutdown (including me) will get paid.  We're not working without pay.  Our pay may be delayed, but we'll still get paid.

It looks like they're really going to shut 'er down. I wonder how enthused the teabaggers will feel if their Social Security checks are late.

Maybe it's because I had braced myself for the absolute worst, but I'm not finding Trevor nearly as hard to play as I expected. I even got to "the controversial mission" and didn't find it as intolerable as I expected. I don't like the character as much as Franklin or Michael, but I mean... that's the point.

A couple of my Facebook friends think Trevor is the best GTA character ever.

"remove the gold and real-money auction house system from Diablo III." effective on March 18, 2014.

Bliz has admitted " it ultimately undermines Diablo's core game play: kill monsters to get cool loot"

not sure how I feel about this.  too little, too late?

Might be just fine, depending on the timing of the expansion. 

Guess I should stock up on gems before then.

Yeah.  Gotta love a ban that is not entirely a ban.

The law is written vaguely enough that a "ban" is not entirely correct.

You know what the Affleck outrage is similar to?  The outrage when Heath Ledger was cast as The Joker in TDK.

Give it a chance.

Great comparison. Couldn't remember my initial reaction to that news so I found the thread and we were all pretty okay with that one.

I didn't pay almost $1k for an upgraded sound system to not take advantage of it.

Yeah.  Came with extra speakers and two subwoofers.  It's the Logic7 system found at the bottom of this page.

Why waste the goodness with compressed audio?

Of course, like pug said, recording quality does play into it, too.

I'll occasionally play my iPod in my car, but since CDs still sound better than MP3s (and lossless files are too effing big to carry around in an iPod), I stick with CDs.

Nope.  My whole family kills watches just by wearing them.  Mechanical or electronic, it doesn’t seem to matter.

I thought I was the only one!   Actually I don't kill them they just don't keep accurate time - after a week it'll be off by an hour or more.

I just use my cell phone instead.



What kind of watches are you buying that are off by an hour or more after a WEEK?

And to answer the OP, yes, I wear a watch.

Every watch I've ever owned which implies it's me, not the device.

Huh.  I didn't even know that happened.  My bad.

Wombat from the CAGCast talked about his little girl, wanting to play some 360 games for kids, with his permission, she turns on system herself. He turns around then hears her screaming, and covering her eyes. She yelling at him to turn it off, turn it off. There's the zombie head on the TV in one of the big ad spaces. She's traumatized and doesn't want to play games anymore.

That's not overreacting. Can you imagine being a parent and dealing with nightmares after that?

It does sound like a problem that's more with their content control, rather than the actual ads. But if you think about it, you're paying for XBL, you'd think they could pay someone to be more vigilant. Although, I hear that up until then it hasn't been an issue.

As others have said, what about Wombat not turning on the family filters?  Where's his responsibility?
