Umm, Blues, your wrong about the release date. Its going live tomorrow. Microsoft even sent out notices to everyone about his including those of us that bought the game.

May 18th is the release date.

May 22nd is the release date. Preorder customers get four days of early access. I'll add a note to clarify.

What Subaru do you have? Forester here... and Subaru didn't gave me a vacuum but replaced the motor short block for free in the following months after warranty was over. I so wanted a Subaru for a long time, hard to beat their AWD ability and it's great with the winter we have. No regrets! So in the end I was happy with the service and since then my girlfriend recently bought a used 2018 Crosstrek, yep only 6 months old and she likes it a lot. 2018 is the new revised model with new platform. I was also impressed.

I like to watch YouTube videos where Subaru wins over competition in mud, snow, slippery slope, name it! But I guess looking for competition beating Subs also exist.

We got a 2017 Impreza for MrsBlue's job in the snow country that she ended up quitting. This is the first model with the new platform you mention, and so far it seems like a wonderful car.

Trans fats: WHO calls for elimination in foods by 2023.

This is going to be a challenge, since most people's trans fat intake is from chicken/beef/dairy/eggs etc

Not really. A majority of most people's trans fat intake is from partially hydrogenated vegetable oil.

And the WHO is calling for a ban on artificial trans fats anyway.

Creston you make many valid points. I am not proud of being someone who's grown to expect and overlook stuff like that, but as I watch and munch my popcorn, most of those errors don't bother me that much.

As for Peter Dinklage, I looked up his character from the comics, and he doesn't particularly resemble him, but I love his inclusion because I've never seen an actual person who looked so much like he was drawn by Jack Kirby.

I'm not sure how a thirty year old plot can be considered a spoiler but okay. Damn kids. Get off my lawn.

I'm a comics fan, but I was no longer reading them by the time this story came. That said, my fandom is on of the reasons I really liked this film, especially (SST): That this is, as described, a hero's journey for Thanos. I'm not one of those who roots for the bad guy in general, but I always loved Thanos. I was a fan of the whole Jim Starlin Captain Marvel storyline with the cosmic cube, and am excited that Marvel is coming, even if it's a continuity different from what I grew up with.

Random thoughts:

I did not know going in that this was the first of two-parts. That really changes the ending from shocking to more of what I'd call a cliff-hanger, where you know they're getting out of it, but it's a question of how. It does seem that Heimdall, Loki, and Gamora are more dead (deader?) than the other dead, so it will be interesting to see if any or all of those stick.

What was with the odd tech? Tony Stark's flip-phone seemed oddly out of date... when is this set? And then there's Fury's Captain Marvel pager... that thing was positively steampunk.

There's an easy and fool-proof way to tell if anything related conservative/right-wing/Republican politics is true or not. If anyone calls it "fake news", you can be sure it's the solid truth.

I think I'll coin this, "Nullity's law".

That wasn't actually a quote... I wrote that.

When I try to delete my comment, it says "The email address/password combination you entered does not have the appropriate permission to delete this comment."
After looking through the relevant board.pl code, it turns out only admins (Blue and me) can delete posts. So Blue's Jan 2017 post was unfortunately not accurate.

Indeed. My apologies for causing confusion.

Saw a video of Joe Rogan talking about Quake today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_mo-aV60xA

Apparently he was pretty big into it back in the 90's, knew about Thresh and was talking about a T1 line he had installed in his home because of how addicted he was. He proceeds to start planning on turning his secondary studio room into a LAN party area. Completely out of left field lol.

Joe got himself invited to the Quake III Arena launch party, which was because of how big a fan he was. My recollection is a funny humble brag of sorts... I didn't really watch TV through most of the DOOM and QUAKE years, and Jason (loonyboi) introduced me to Joe at the party because Joe was really excited to meet me, but I had no idea who he was at the time, which was obviously quite backwards.

In the 'burbs (for now), in a very sleepy village. Which now has a head shop.

Setting the clock in the 2018 Subaru Outback requires 19 steps in three different places.
noice

I sat for a long time trying to find how to set the clock on my 2017 Impreza... turns out there's apparently no menu setting for this, it just sets the clock automatically when you connect your smartphone. I know it's unlikely that someone wouldn't have one, but what if you didn't? Weird.

So Blue correctly predicted this a few hours before it came out...
or did he just want us to think he predicted it

Man, my credibility has taken a severe hit since the "Friends" incident.

That was 14 years ago? And I can't remember someone's name 5 minutes after they tell me!

That's going to have to be my excuse here. Even reminded of it, I can't recall watching the finale... my post is vaguely worded, and leaves open the possibility I didn't actually watch it, but it sounds like I probably did. Weird, and a little disturbing.

Blue, in the past have you ever been fooled by one of these April Fool's articles? I could see it easily happening in the old days or with articles that aren't that weird. And along those lines, have you ever placed an article in the "April Fool's Roundup" and later found out it was real?

I'm pretty sure I've erred in both ways over the years, posting true stories in the joke roundups, and jokes in the news. I'd say I have a pretty good track record, but it's usually pretty easy to spot them.

And shhh, don't talk about the pink logo or it won't fool anyone if I break it out again!

First I'll attack the arm holding the shears.

You might be onto something there.

No price indicated in the article, I'm going to guess $30k.
Actually it is


"There are only 11 of them, costing roughly $400,000 each"
Err.. color me confused. When I follow the link I see a two paragraph article which doesn't contain that sentence. Confused

I concur. This is what I see there about pricing:

While the electronics titan didn't release a price, it'll likely be significant, so start saving now.
