Re: On the topic of California

I do think that it's always a legitimate thing to ask, "If we pass this law, how might its scope be interpreted in the future?" After all, we've had things like the Patriot Act, which have been used to justify some very broad invasions into privacy, or the Lexmark interpretation of the DM...

Re: On the topic of California

Honestly Ares, the more I read from you when it comes to some of your sociopolitical opinions, the more I fear you're going down a dark place... :( "I'm not going to refute your opinions, but I'm going to act concerned about you for having them! They're clearly not reasoned positions held by h...

Huh, that is pretty much literally the Frozen Throne from Warcraft III
It includes Arthas' sword, so I have to conclude it is deliberately the same thing.

Re: Jab’s Builds (Sofia & Elena! FROZEN!!! Anna! Kristoff!)

How the hell am I one of the few people who have actually consumed the media we're discussing? This never happens. And it's one of the biggest pop cultural phenomena? Whoa. Frozen is distinctly worth watching, but I'm not the fan Jab is. Honestly, the movie almost lost me in the beginning. It was su...

I'm hoping that's the case. I need some satisfaction on those plot threads they left dangling.

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

In response to your questions: 1. There are actually these people called police who could be called if someone was drunk and belligerent at my place of work, though if the person was threatening violence I would likely try to subdue him/her, assuming they didn't have me at gunpoint or the like. But...

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

Actually, you can listen to the audio of the incident right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlMr8Z5-d98 Hey, I was wrong; I thought Ben Jacobs might have been shouting (not screaming, just raising his voice as we've ALL seen reporters do on multiple, multiple occasions when questioning politi...

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

Paul GIaforte plead guilty in Montana, where the assault took place, not D.C.; he admitted his initial account of the incident was a lie when audio surfaced AND eyewitnesses came forward, including Alicia Acosta of a Fox News affiliate. Giaforte and his campaign manager first claimed the reporter g...

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

The case DID "go to court", where Giaforte plead guilty to misdemeanor assault and was sentenced to community service and anger management therapy. I hadn't heard that bit. Interesting. What is the standard for misdemeanor assault in DC? Does it include disproportionate response to aggres...

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

Journalists aren't victims in the modern era? As a class, no. They're the side that gets to present every argument to the public and claiming to be simply reporting the facts, which they have been flagrantly abusing for well over a century at this point. There are specific instances where specific ...

To be fair though, Ares, there is one solid point here. I'm dead certain that this is what Marvel Comics would want.

Apparently he'll still do guest appearances and any future seasons of Defenders.
