Based on the trailers, out of 10:

Orville 9
Aquaman 5

The Orville is a show that is way, way better than it has any right to be. It's what Discovery should have been instead of the moribund affair it was. I have no Trek neckbeardedness within me, Discovery was just boring.

Aquaman looks to be yet another in a long line of DC movies that are style over substance. I might watch it after it hits Netflix, torrents, or whatever if Mrs. Burrito has a burning need to see it.

GOJIIIIRA! I love the old monster movies so I'm definitely down for another return to form. Given the tie in with Kong: Skull Island, I would almost bet that Charles Dance is playing the character of James Conrad. Which would then set this movie up to tie in to the next Kong movie. Definitely going to see this in theatres. Having Godzilla's roar be so loud that your eyedrums pulse is fucking amazing.

Trailer was more impressive looking than I was expecting. Gonna give this a go.

I really enjoyed the demo although what you are supposed to do is, at times, a little more than cryptic.

Even so, if a person loved the Alone in the Dark games, Call of Cthulu, etc. then they will really enjoy this game.

I am definitely feeling a major Event Horizon vibe from that trailer.

It was a bad attempt at humor, apparently. Iíve not played the game, know nothing about it beyond the description. If thatís the real ending then maybe donít play it, as I meant ďyou actually destroy your machine because the hacking commands REALLY worked and fried your rigĒ.

The "hacking" commands aren't real tools and the few real Linux commands wouldn't work on your average Windows install anyway. Even were you to play the game on Linux, the most destructive command is "rm" and were the game to actually somehow pass that command to your actual system, you'd get a request prompt to elevate permissions. That would be a major red flag and nigh on impossible to truly happen anyway.

So, after reading this, I come away with the following impression:

Jessica Price is mentally ill. I'm not saying that to be misogynistic or make light of the situation. She genuinely comes off as being mentally ill to the point where she can't differentiate between reality and her quixotic stances and interpretations on gender, public interaction, and her now former employer. Moreover, she makes these Trump like claims of "everyone says I'm right" without providing a shred of verifiable evidence to support those claims.

On the other hand, Mike O'Brien's reply is on point. He addresses the issue, why ArenaNet undertook the actions it did, and deals solely with the facts of the matter. He isn't off wandering in the weeds casting personal aspersions on either of the recently terminated employees. That is the correct method of handling this situation.

I'm utterly burned out on comic book movies. I was even slightly bored by Infinity War. In fact. there's nothing out or coming, with the exception of Sicario 2, that even interests me.

Yay! Now I don't have to wait for the Chinese to try and hack my game library, they can just do it right from within the client itself!

She's a...less than stellar human being. What she did, and continues to do, shows an egregious sense of self-entitlement and self-righteousness. ArenaNet dismissing her is the proper course of action given that her actions directly impacted the company for which she previously worked. "B...b...but HARRASMENT! GENDER!" etc. are not acceptable excuses or justification for her behavior. As an adult, and as a professional, there is never a time when it is acceptable for you to lose your temper and throw a tantrum deserving of a two year old. You are in control of you, end of story.

Yesterday was the quietest fourth of July I can recall. We had our city's firework show, and that was it basically. Other than the occasional firecracker I heard almost nothing last night. And there was no lingering smoke at all, unlike previous years. Anyone experience anything different?
All was quiet here on the western front. The 4th falling on a Wednesday probably had something to do with it and thankfully we have had some rain over the last couple of days so fires created by the sparklies were sparse.
Good point about it being a Wednesday. I wondered if the current political climate was putting a damper on celebrating, but you live in TX, so that shouldn't have been the case there.

You throwing shade on we Texans? Kidding, I know you're not.

I think the rains had a lot to do with it and that it was a Wednesday, too. Also, there is a general malaise about patriotism, at least local to where I live. No one's really "America...FUCK YEAH" and I saw fewer American flags flying than I've seen previously.

In general, I don't think the general population is feeling the USA much. Almost as if we're truly becoming ashamed of the country we have become.

ME:A committed, in my world, one of the greatest sins any game can; it was boring. The only somewhat interesting character out of the lot was Jaal. I recently picked it up again about six weeks ago and made it as far as New Tuchunka before giving up again. I literally just don't care about any of the characters and every quest is a FedEx quest.

If anyone remembers the GeForce 7950 X2, I foresee that type of card design as the future for VR. Provided VR ever gets off the ground as something more than a niche market. More dies, faster interconnects, and what basically becomes a mini render farm in your PC.

Burrito, got any links for managing insomnia etc.? Is that with CBD?

There are some basic, general guidelines for managing non-chronic, infrequent insomnia:

*No caffeine intake at least four hours prior to attempting to sleep.

*Turn off the TV, get out from in front of your computer, and put the phone down. Try reading for about an hour before bedtime.

*Exercise more daily. Even something so simple as a walk in the park or around a couple of blocks helps. If, like me, you live out in the sticks, go to your local high school and do four laps of the outermost ring on the track. That's one mile. Work up to twenty laps.

*Stay hydrated throughout the day. That does not mean soda, coffee, or tea. Plain old water is your go to for this.

*No spicy foods for at least three hours prior to attempting to sleep. Spicy foods stimulate the human body which can lead to wakefulness.

If you are experiencing insomnia regularly, please go see your doctor about it ASAP. They'll probably send you to a sleep study (which sucks because your actual amount of sleep during the study is very little but that is not the point) where they'll get a baseline reading on your neural activity levels. The results will be sent to your GP who will either work with you directly to address the cause of your insomnia or send you to a sleep specialist.

No, I do not use CBD. I flatout smoke the leaf. CBDs are not in a high enough concentration to assist me with the cause of my insomnia. However, it does help others with their insomnia. So try it first if you have regular bouts of insomnia before moving on to stronger means of abatement.

Personally, I think there's a ton of bullshit surrounding how much of a medical miracle marijuana is but there are definitely some good things buried under that bullshit.

I think there is a lot of FUD and hype around the issue in general. I can only speak from personal experience with chronic insomnia. Outside of some really heavy duty sedatives that leave me in a drooling, zombie like state for 24 hours after taking them, marijuana really helps manage it. I've posted extensively on this topic previously here so I won't repeat myself.

What this means is that we won't see "disputed" mechs like the Warhammer in Battletech or the Marauder.
