News Comments > Diablo III Rise of the Necromancer Rises Next Week

On the one hand, $15 seems a bit cheesy for something that should have been in the game all along. On the other hand, at least they didn't go crazy and put a $40 or $60 price tag on it.

$15 is less than a steak dinner would cost -- So, it seems to me a reasonable question would be: Is playing a Necro in D3 going to be fun for longer than it would take you to eat a steak dinner (or insert you favorite $15 meal)?

Or more basically, do you play D3 and want to play a Necro? If you said yes to playing D3 and yes to wanting to play a Necro, then $15 is probably cheap entertainment.

4. Re: Daniel Day-Lewis Quits Acting- Oscar-Winner Leaving Hollywood. Jun 21, 2017, 11:30 Mr. Tact
 
I was a bit surprised when I looked Daniel Day-Lewis up in Wiki and saw he had only acted in about 20 films. He became very well known when he won his first Oscar for "My Left Foot" in 1989. Since then, he has only made 11 films, one of which is in production right now. That said he seemingly chose well seeing he won a total of three Best Actor Oscars. His performance in "Lincoln" was IMHO, awesome. Always a bit sad to see a good actor hang it up, but he is 60 now, so the roles will be limited. And it's difficult to begrudge him the desire to stop "working" when he has the means to.

Perhaps the Tesla was in "Chevy Chase's Vacation" mode? If so you could hardly blame them.

I used to do an acre with a motorized push mower every week
And that took you how many hours? Even a half acre with a home on is approaching the riding mower range in my book.

Listen I enjoyed Animal House when I first saw it as much as anyone and I agree it is a cultural icon of film. However, I don't think I could call it "timeless". Have you seen it within, oh I don't know, the last 20 years? It isn't the worst example of it, but overall it hasn't aged well.

... I don't have any kids (that I know of.)
Reminds me of something a buddy from my USAF days used to say -- being from Missouri when asked about kids he'd say, "Hell, you throw a stone in most any schoolyard in Missouri you'll probably hit one of my kids."

Best wishes to all the Dads out there!

Hmm, could have sworn I read an article about how the show was filmed and then transferred to tape for television and either some part could not be remastered to HD or had simply been lost in the process. But you could be right, I might just be remembering it incorrectly. I don't feel like trying to find that article now...

One of the great tragedies of TV history is that the way Babylon 5 was made makes it impossible for a remastering to HD. *sigh*

1. Re: Pa. man awarded $870,000 after doctor removes wrong testicle. Jun 17, 2017, 14:38 Mr. Tact
 
From the article, "It is the first medical malpractice verdict in the immediate area in at least 25 years." Depending on what constitutes the "immediate area" that seems some what surprising. I'm guessing there have been other cases of medical malpractice during that time...

That is always an option. Have you tried texting.

too soon?
Haha, not for me it isn't. Although I have to say, I was a bit surprised by the verdict. I didn't read much about the case, but given the verdict I assume there was a lot more circumstantial evidence than I currently know about.

Yeah, I know -- thanks for informing me on the off chance I was unaware. Just hoping I might get him/her to see the light. After all, if it wasn't for hope I might have turned mass murderer a long time ago.

Pence is pretty disgusting but he would at least not humiliate our country half as bad as Trump. Prior to the election I joked that Pence was impeachment insurance... now I'm 100% certain I would prefer Pence if for no other reason than predictability and to be rid of Trump.

I feared Trump would just be a Republican puppet, but at least less reliable of one than Pence. Instead, Trump has proved to be chaos incarnate and a PR disaster for America, doing shit that damages both parties and the country as a whole.
I'm not denying Trump is doing damage. I just feel the damage would be much greater if Pence takes over. Yeah, Trump is embarrassing, but I'd rather be embarrassed than be living in Pence's vision of the world.
What are they gonna do? Vote for a Democrat or third party? Trump has nearly no support left outside the hardcore Republican base, and those people have nowhere to go. He's closing in on the absolute minimum approval rating you can feasibly obtain. You can count on around 25% of Americans to approve of the President strictly on party loyalty no matter how badly he fucks up. Nixon resigning in the midst of impeachment still had 24% of the public behind him. Trump's already down to 35% not even six months in, which itself is historic.
They are going to elect even more far right GOP members, getting rid of current GOP members in the primaries -- which is exactly what the GOP is currently afraid of. Until the Ds manage to get the districts redrawn we are likely in for a GOP shit show...

the kids who arent democrat or republican.. i know its hard to believe, but the current 2 party system actually wont last forever.. because its physically impossible

people like you are the fucking problem. get out of the way, dude

just fucking die off if you have to.. whatever it takes..

its for the greater good
LOL. I am not the problem. I'd love to see the US do something like France just did. Have a political party grow from non-existence to having the Presidency and control of parliament in under a year. Assuming of course, the party was sane and reasonable.

That said, the barriers to do so are significant in the US. For instance, in most (all?) regions, election rules for signature requirements to get on the ballot for parties other than Rs and Ds are much higher. I'm not saying it can't or won't happen, just that the system is for lack of a better word, rigged against anyone outside the Rs and Ds.

I know something else for sure. Your ranting on the Internet is less than noise in the background. If you were really interested in changing things, you wouldn't be wasting your time telling this curmudgeon that "the kids" are going to do "whatever it takes.. its for the greater good".

I hope they do. However, I'll only believe it when I see it.

No, it doesn't. And if you did a bit of research on Pence you'd probably agree.

All these things are big positives for the people who elected him, and the GOP knows it.
I think it's the other way around. The reason people think those things are positive is because their God Emperor Trump did them. They don't care about policy, they care about the team they are on.
I'm not sure I understand how you are disagreeing with me... Yes, they are positives because he said he would do them, and he followed through.
Trump only cares about himself and the Republicans know this. If and when it becomes clear that he is more trouble than he is worth, they'll turn on him. The bar for this is quite high however, having a useful idiot in the Oval Office is quite valuable even if he is troublesome. It remains to be seen whether that bar can be reached.
I agree. Although you could make an argument that getting rid of Trump for Pence would make it easier to accomplish their agenda. The problem being a possible revolt by the Trump supporters.
