there is a difference between making up a nonsense word that doesnt exist as a replacement for an actual word.. and not using a grammatical symbol that doesnt even exist on your input device
It's there, you just don't know how to get to it. Does the shift key or apostrophe key exist on your keyboard? If you are going jump all over someone for spelling something phonetically, the least you could do is display some knowledge of grammar and punctuation.

Mr. Tact, you're wasting your time.
Apparently so... thanks.

where is that key on the keyboard? if it was there i would have used it..
So, you were criticizing someone for getting something wrong, and when correcting them you knowingly were also wrong? With logic like that I am going to guess you work in corporate management...

Actually it is voilą, not voila.

voila is pronounced [vee-oh-luh]

Not that anyone really gives a flying fuck, but hey you brought it up...

The DCEU trailers all looked great! The movies sucked, though.
I have to say, I don't know if it is because they have "better" characters or what, but Marvel has been kicking DC's butt in the movie venue. Seems weird to me that one would be so much better than the other...

I think the biggest mystery is L4D2. Who doesn't own that by now?
Never even considered it. Never played the original.

I totally agree Blue. I don't care if they pick standard or daylight savings -- but bloody pick one and stop flopping back and forth. One of the most ridiculous things in our modern existence.

How is this still a thing?

I probably should pick this up the next Steam sale... is the vanilla game fine or does it have issues that need to be modded from the start?

Dear Hollywood,

There are plenty of original sci fi stories out there. For example, nearly any story from any edition of The Year's Best Science Fiction Anthology would make a better movie than the utter tripe that will be Alien Covenant. Please try harder.

Thanks,
Moviegoers Everywhere.
Preach it Brother JD! Amen. I say AMEN!

Six more Alien movies? Nothing more than public masturbation...

Hey if Xenomorphs are your thing that's none of my business but cinemas are not the place to jack off. Wait until it's out on VHS or whatever.
I suspect you know this, but for the record: I meant it was Ridley Scott's public masturbation... and unfortunately if the films are made they will be in the cinemas.

Virtual currency will come, it might be virtual US dollars, but it will come. I have a Mobil Speedpass and the convenience is so great over the last decade I think I've purchased gas at a non-Mobil station maybe 2 or 3 times.

Two things about the log of transactions:

1) Surely there has to be a scaling problem there. I find it difficult to believe an algorithm could be found which would handle even half of the currency transactions which happen everyday in the US, let alone world-wide.

2) I think the public logs of expenditures are okay if accounts can be anonymous. Obviously people wouldn't want everyone to see they are buying Viagra, or giving money to Nazis, or whatever. It is a major issue, because the anonymity also facilitates criminal use, but it is unavoidable since people don't want everyone else to know even their legitimate business.

Eventually some kind of virtual currency is going to go mainstream. I'm not yet convinced it will be Bitcoin. Just watched The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin the other night. It seems to moving forward, but it is not quite "there" yet...

Can't comment about facebook, since I've never joined or ever used social media, outside forums. Iirc, facebook is in the middle of a shitstorm atm, so having money might not actually help them.
Congrats! We are a rare breed.

No one I have ever asked in IRL hadn't at least created a Facebook account. As for whatever shitstorm they are facing currently, I'm sure they have enough money to deal with it.

Again, my question would be does that mean the mechanics for soaking up corruption and properly grouping for special attacks are not active? Seems to me those mechanics are such they lead to wipes. Granted this is all from me watching videos trying to teach the fight.

... then the boss... Don't need to stand in shit, or not stand in shit... The damage taken is crazy low.
I find that pretty surprising. What about soaking up the corruption pools, grouping up correctly for the special attacks?

What do they expect when they make raiding a requirement to get flying in the newest zone...

Where do you see this? I could have sworn they said raiding wasn't a requirement. I hate raiding.
Part of the quest line to get flying in 7.2 will require Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part One -- which in turn requires Good Suramaritan, which in turn requires A Growing Crisis, which requires killing Xavius in The Emerald Nightmare.

Total screw job as far as I am concerned. People say, just do it in LFR but I've watched the videos of this fight, and it is not just a tank and spank. I don't know, maybe it is easy enough in LFR that you can just do it with a bunch of random people. *shrug*

Awesome Lego Garden Railway.

Someone with entirely too much money and time on their hands.

Still, it's awesome.
Pretty sure we've seen that previously, the train going under the beds is certainly something I have seen before. So either it is old, or the same guy made another. It would be interesting to know the dollar amount to purchase the required amount of track and other necessary bits and pieces.
