@Cutter: Have you checked out American Gods? Since you're a fan of both Gaiman and Gods that give no fucks.

Yeah it's good, and I've read the original novel too, but I meant something more 'authentic' and a period piece that would have taken place in the dark ages. Even the show Vikings is a little too glam. I want something really heavy and dark. The kind of thing that after to watch it, you're like 'Holy shit that was brutal!'

the fact is booth babes are there to attract guys. meaning they have no functional purpose other than to exploit your desire to procreate and convert it into money.

Reminds me of a lot of women I met back when I was dating...

I think they should be abolished from sports and conventions because I find their presence insulting. porn is for jerking off. I'm there to see the sport or the game.

Yeah, evil men have to press gang poor oppressed women in to trying out to join a team. VE VILL ZEND ZEM TO ZE CHEERLEADING CAMPS, JA?!?!

Typical infantalising view of women, assuming they are so fucking stupid that they'll obliviously exploit themselves for stadiums full of masturbating knuckle draggers... And you never get the fact that your view of women being completely incapable of standing up for themselves, being so vapid that they are blown around by the wims of men, is the most patronising here.

Women have a choice. Whether it's a matter of monetising their looks as an asset or just because they want to do it, they have the choice. No one puts a gun to their head.

He never said anything of the sort. Wasn't even implied. Just that if you need to use sex to sell a product than the odds are it's not a very good product to begin with and I agree. Look at beer ads. You never see a good small craft or artisnal brewery advertising their beer the same way the major brewers who peddle their piss do. The former focus on the product, the latter have to portray guys are cool jocks and the girls as stupid sluts that'll bang you in a heartbeat if you buy them a bottle of said piss. If sex is what we want we'll go watch porn, otherwise stop trying to sexualize things that don't need to be sexualized.

Holy shit does that Thor movie look unbelievably bad.


What!? The Thor films are basically the best of the Marvel movies. It's ridiculous that they get so much hate. More Loki in a film = better film. Now, Loki/Cate Blanchett as Hela/Space Hulk? GG.

As a comic fan, The Thor movies basically are the truest to the (best runs of the) comics, in terms of how they portray the characters. Guardians of the Galaxy, while very entertaining, is way off from the comics. Iron Man is mostly true to the source material(Except the Mandarin! ), but they've gotten a little too cute with the Iron Man/Stark dialogue for my old man comic book tastes. Don't even get me started on the movie version of the Black Widow.

I just wish they had been able to keep Benicio Del Toro as the Collector...freaking Jeff Goldblum.

Also, hopefully they keep doing Thor films until they're able to work Beta Ray Bill into a movie, that'll break the internet.


"Nope, I don't like being called 'Eddie Baby'."

I don't like Marvel's Disneyesque theme park films or how they abandoned grittier comics for mass appeal and money a couple of decades backs. DC films are miles better - although the new JL flick looks pretty bad as it appears they're trying to take that same tack now. I was a big comic collector as a kid too, and the major part of my collection were Sub-Mariner, Flash, and Thor in that order.

I'd dearly love to see a real dark and gritty movie or TV series on the vikings and Norse pantheon in particular. They weren't very nice gods and they didn't much give a fuck about humanity and it's troubles. Hell in most cases they were the cause of it. Here we have Thor with a buzzcut, um no. And now we have a smart Hulk, also with a buzz cut - awww isn't that cute, they're the Bobsy Twins! I *really* hate when they changed the Hulk. I loved him when he was just a big dumb seething ball of rage, and the angrier he got the stronger he got. Now it's like some group therapy sessions where they'd rather hug it our over a pot of sympathy tea than smash, smash, snash!

Cutter admitted he may be wrong yesterday, so today he has to go to the deep end of the opposite end of the scale.

Then again Cutter only has taste when it comes to alcohol.

I have exceptionally good taste in all things, dear. I only lack the funds to allow everyone else that realization as well.

Weird thing about this game is I hate Roger Craig as Crane yet I loved him as Ezio in the Ass Creed games. I wish they had made this game more RPGish. They should have given you choices if you'd go all GRE, or help the survivors or even join Rais.

Another one to keep an eye on is Wartile. Dunno if it'll allow for custom maps though it does look nicer. Some of the neg reviews warn of that similar feeling that it may be heavy microtransaction oriented. Still, nice looking game.

Oh my fucking god that was painful to read. So once again, the liberal point of view is white men are evil. And of course it's us exploiting women, never the other way around! No that never happens ever!

Low pointed to a more industrywide problem — how women are represented in the games themselves. “Lots of costumed booth hostesses simply dress up as the characters they represent,” she pointed out. “Why are game designers creating them that way in the first place?”

Are you fucking kidding me? How fucking dumb to do you have to be to even ask a question like that to begin with. Eros and Thanatos, honey. Men - and women - are hardwired for it. Have a problem with that? Talk to Mother Nature.

There's not a whole of lot of point with autonomous cars unless they can force the vehicle behind you to stop tailgating. Following too close is 95% of accidents right there. Right behind that is people failing to indicate (properly). Unless Autcars can do something about that they're useless IMO.

Really? You actually liked that dreck? It's not the worst novel ever but it's a strong contender. Absolutely nonsensical premise, poorly written characters, plotholes you could fly a 747 through, etc. It's all style and no substance. I can see why Spielberg would be attracted to that. I'd much rather see something actually good like Neuromancer or Snow Crash show up on the big screen.

I just got through Snow Crash again, since I read it the first time about 20 years ago. It didn't really hold up well. The conversations between Hiro and the librarian program were just these long tedious passages of exposition, written in a way that felt forced and unnatural. I forgot how bad the dialog for YT was too. Hell, most of the dialog was bad. While the story and some of the world-building aspects are still interesting, the execution wasn't great.

You may be right, it's been that long since I've read it as well. Same with Neuromancer. I very well could be glossing them over.

Hmm, I loved RP1, a book that seemed to be written by someone pulling the best geek references from my cerebral cortex. However, other than the stacks of trailer homes, I didn't recognize anything from the book. Where's Art3mis? Where's the quest for the egg? Tomb of Horrors? They probably won't include the Rush 2112 planet. It's probably too geeky, even for this movie. Oh well.

Still, it looks like a fun action fest that follows the general structure of the story, with lots of 80s refs so I'll be ready, Player One.

Really curious for WW S2 however. I can't imagine they intend on milking this thing out over several seasons. Where the hell can they go with it? The robots have rebelled, the government will send in troops to destroy them and that's the end of that. What? Unless they escape into the real world? Well then it's not Westworld anymore is it?

No it hasn't. People have short memories and execs who have to choose between more money for IT security - or anything else for that matter - or their own bonuses will always choose the latter. Everything else is just the cost of doing business as far as they're concerned.

In 1.5 years, the house has had NO OFFERS but ours. Just seems odd.

I dunno Bats. This should be setting off police sirens or something.

Had a friend who bought a house where the buyer suppressed a report about an unstable stonewall holding up a hillside that they failed to disclose. They had to spend $1000s suing to get the original owner to pay for it. Even with your thoroughness, this just smells bad.

Yeah, I have to concur. From the sounds of it you'd be nuckin futs to buy it at this point. It sounds like a money pit waiting to happen. Given all the problems and the guy's intransigence and dishonesty those are all the warning signs you need. That and no one has even considered buying after almost 2 years on the market - and may have been even longer if was then they pulled it and relisted it. That would not surprise me at all. I don't know why you'd still even be considering it at this point unless there's some massive shortage of affordable housing where you are at this point. And according to Trulia there doesn't seem to be. Jesus, the average house price is only 240k US?! The average house price in Toronto now is over 700K US.

No. They're a shady company, man. I bought some shoes off what I thought was Amazon and it turns out it was some 3rd party reseller marketplace bullshit from China.

I'm a little apprehensive about this story... Every Amazon product I've seen, even when Prime has said when you're still buying from a third party source. It will say sold by xxx, fulfilled by Amazon.


I don't buy a ton from Amazon but I've never had a problem like this before. That being said, once again, if I had known this was the case I never would have bought the fucking things, would I? Who the hell needs this sort of hassle over a pair of fucking shoes?
