Why not Blue? It's always after five somewhere.

Tom Cruise impassioned?


I was thinking the same thing trying to figure out where impassioned fell on the acting spectrum between cocky teenager, cocky pilot, cocky race-car driver, cocky spy and comically short ex-MP bad-ass. Then I remembered his role in Tropic Thunder.

I still think the funniest thing about NMS is when you reach the game's end goal...
Dude, how about a spoiler alert?

Ugh, I went 4/9 in this weeks pool.

I feel your pain. The crystal ball I've been using for my picks has developed cataracts.

On a brighter note, both Goff and the Marvelous Mr. Mahomes look like they're the next Brady and Rogers.

Started a free trial of Netflix and I don't understand why anyone uses this service. The TV UI is atrocious - at least with Bell - so I've been having to do everything on the PC to setup a list of stuff to watch.

Stuff to watch? Are you kidding me? 95% of it is utter crap. Honestly at least, and I mean at least 50%, likely way more, of the movies have to be Bollywood and Chinese films.

Almost zero classic films. Zero classic TV. How the hell did this company ever succeed? I thought, 'Ok, they probably have enough stuff to get me through the next 3 or 4 months for winter and then let the sub end in the Spring. From the looks of it I'll be done before the free trial is up.

I think you're a little late to the dance as far as massive amounts of classic TV content on Netflix. The CEO said a few years back that their goal was to have 50% original vs. licensed content. They've been doing that by dropping a lot of series. Plus Disney, WB and a bunch of others are starting their own streaming services. So they're not renewing deals. Welcome to the age of a la carte TV.

So is the game any good now, or is this circle jerk thread about who has the biggest dick in the room?
I bought it during a sale this summer. I enjoy it a lot and certainly got more than my monies worth.

Depending on which game mode you choose, it can be a bit grindy. Content-wise there are a couple of major quest lines, lots of side missions, crafting and base building to keep you entertained.

Congrats on 22, Blue!

Vesuvius eruption: I guess you could say it was mind blowing.

Banksy: Whether or not the auction house was involved, it's still a fun prank.

The Fortnite sketch was one of the funniest things I've seen on SNL in a while. Maybe because it hits far too close to home.

That wasn’t a “freak accident” at jack in the box. It was someone being stupid. I’m betting his family wasn’t excited about a headline reading “idiot driver gets killed by his poor choices”.
Probably, although I'd say "poor execution" instead of choices...

Considering the outcome I’d say the execution was pretty spot on.

On the bright side, we probably have this years Darwin Awards winner.

Not at all. Darwin Awards are for people who intentionally do something stupid and get killed in the process. This was just general negligence.
One way or the other, it's evolution in action.

Hey Blue, as long as it's cheaper, why not go for the Alexa enabled microwave? You get a chance to test drive it and it might be an interesting selling feature.

RIP John McCain. I had no idea he'd refused to use his family connections for early release until other POW's who'd been there longer were freed. We can only hope he's not the last of politicians who put country over party.

Super challenging series to shoot considering the time span involved; a lot like Altered Carbon you're not going to have a hero carry the show through the entire series of books. It'll be interested in see how they try to tell a story that's detailed at the micro-scale and needs you to be paying attention for the macro-scale stuff to make sense. I'll watch, for sure.

IIRC that's true at the beginning, but don't things start taking place with the same chars once The Mule appears?
I think the Mule is in the second half of book two and the first half of book three.

Have they said if they're just doing the original trilogy? Because it seems to me they'd get more cinematic stories out of the subsequent novels featuring Harry Seldon or Golan Trevize.

Not to defend this guy against corruption but at least he was on the rational side of the violence in video games debate and served his country in the military.

Randy Cunningham was a vet, too, and was convicted for bribery and fraud back in 2005. The Starship Troopers theory that someone who puts their life on the line for their country couldn't possibly act against its interests just doesn't seem to hold true in practice.
I agree serving in the military doesn't excuse anyone from criminal behavior. I probably should have stopped at video games.

I lived my entire life being told witches weren't real and that I need to stop hwackin it off to Bewitched, The Craft, and Charmed. Turns out they are real, and they are ugly men instead of beautiful women. What a god damn blow this has been to my childhood.
And I'm guessing, your libido.

Someone should let the people in Hong Kong know that a 4D printer is impossible as the 4th dimension is time.
From the article...
"4D printing is conventional 3D printing combined with the additional element of time as the fourth dimension, where the printed objects can re-shape or self-assemble themselves over time with external stimuli, such as mechanical force, temperature, or a magnetic field."
