Out of the Blue

Here's an apology if you received a takeover ad visiting here last night. We did not actually receive any complaints about this, but I experienced it myself, because it was local to my area. The good news is that it was a harmless webpage, though it annoyingly opened a new tab to display its harmlessness. This was not a deliberate effort to push you into subscribing to the ad-free version of our site, it was just a glitch. I believe it's been cleared up now, and Frans and I have a brainstorm planned to discuss ways to address such a problem immediately should it arise again. Again, my apologies.

Snagged.
And after confiding with the Elders on the Counsel of Snaggethity and intensive study of the bylaws it has been confirmed that snaggage in any thread still counts. Please inform BoP as he was misinformed and probably got bad information from a Joe Rogan YouTube.
Speaking of JR, he recently fell for fake news and got worked up over it. What an embarrassing buffoon.

Borderlands 3 is free on EGS today, beginning a sale where a 25% coupon has replaced the old $10 one. So no more deals as low as $5, now you pay $11 of the $15 minimum.

Hey Blue, any chance you could make the logo in the footer link back to the homepage like the header does? If not that, maybe just go back to top of the page.

Please and thank you.

That is a neat little idea: the footer logo now links back to the homepage on other pages, and on the homepage itself it scrolls the window back to top. Thanks for the suggestion. Thumbsup

Thank you. My apologies for double posting and not in the right spot.

As has been reiterated from time to time, site requests shouldn't be buried in an unrelated news topic. And certainly not double-posted. Rolleyes
You are always appreciated, and much too kind. I would have been tempted to redirect the footer link here.

Is this your first or second booster?

Also, The Haunting of Hill House is excellent. Mike Flanagan's best work, period.

a very excellent series for sure; one of netflix' few works of truly great art. personally i like bly manor more, but i'm a sucker for sappy shit even though it's not nearly as scary.

Pros
  • Refrigerator magnets stick to me like they’re made out of rare earth materials.
  • My non 5g phone now has 5 g’s.
Cons
  • Injection site hurts when touched with a powder puff. Deltoid is sore.
  • Feel like I’m coming down with the flu, general malaise.
One thing I’ve noticed since getting the first vaccine:
Used to be I could not watch horror movies but now I am halfway through “The Haunting of Hill House.”

Don't put on the tin foil hat! You'll never get it off!
The second day for both was like having a hangover (1st major, 2nd bad) and the booster just made me tired.
And I still can't watch the original Poltergeist movies.

Most people I know have had lesser reactions with each shot, but I've had the opposite experience. The first shot was nothing. The night after the 2nd shot, a few hours before bed I had "that feeling" you get when you're coming down with something, but I slept all night and felt fine when I woke up. A couple of hours after getting up though I was really tired, so I went back to bed. I slept a couple of hours, felt fine for an hour or two then was tired again. This happened a couple more times and by the afternoon I was fine.

I got my booster (3rd shot) I think in November. It was much worse. I woke up during the night really hot and feeling like I was going to puke. I ran to the bathroom, but luckily didn't puke. I felt crappy and had fever for about half the day and felt like I was going to throw up a couple more times, but I never did.

If that trend continues, I'm not looking forward to getting another booster, but I did ask my doctor about it. He recommended I wait a month or two since cases here are very low, and if there's another summer spike, getting it now would have the booster just coming off peak effectiveness when the spike hits. Waiting a month or two would have the booster working at peak effectiveness if there is another summer spike. He also said to keep an eye on local cases and if they start rising again to go ahead and get the booster.

That plane crash was intentional? Wow Pilots were to blame.
My guess is pilot singular.
Similar to when the co-pilot of a German airliner deliberately flew a plane into the French Alps after locking the pilot out of the cockpit.

I can't remember the name of the book where rabies (i think) became airborne and an infected pilot intentionally crashed a jumbo jet into a skyscraper where he knew his wife would be after he found out that she had an affair.

The CGI looks ok, lightning needs to match. The could have a little more muscle on display, maybe I've played too much UMVC3.

I'm kind of surprised that Marvel's Avengers went with Kate Bishop instead of She-Hulk but maybe hundreds of characters have individual licensing tiers.
