Re: Jab's Builds! (THUNDRA!!!! Swords! Katanas! Nunchucks! Axes!)

As evocative as things like the Warhammer 40k chainsword are, chainsaws are tools, not weapons. Being a farm kid, I have ample experience with them. They're highly effective firewood makers, but trying to use one on something that could fight back would be awful. A chainsaw's blade will foul pretty...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Terror! THUNDRA!!!! Polearms & Blades! Katanas!)

Context is king. What's the best weapon? Better question: What's your opposition? Let me amend that. What's your opposition, how many people do they have, how many do you have and how much money do you have to spend on equipment that can take the opposition out and what's the terrain/climate you're...

Re: Woman faces descrimination as police and media refuse to label her crime "rape".

In a bit of actual justice, a UK woman was sentenced to 14 years in prison for human trafficking. https://www.npr.org/2018/07/05/626088604/voodoo-using-u-k-nurse-sentenced-for-trafficking-nigerian-women If anything, she got off light. Tack on another 5 years, make her 70th birthday present her free...

Re: Jab's Builds! ( Terminus! Terror! THUNDRA!!!! Polearms & Blades!)

I know it's not 'real life' but of all the varied weapons featured in the episodes of Forged In Fire I've seen, the winning Templar Sword seemed to do the most damage to the ballistics gel dummy, even the judges looked surprised. Most television shows about medieval weapons and warfare - Mail Call ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (The Black Order! Talos! Time-Keepers! The Toad!)

Toad has the wind gust power??? How does he do it? How is it toad related? I really haven't kept up with Toad. He has definitely gotten more dangerous. Expanded lung capacity, he can take it large gulps of air and then release it back out as a forceful puff strong enough to knock someone on their a...

Juggernaut has appeared in two movies and both times he escapes from imprisonment, how the hell did the authorities manage to capture him in the first place? :?

Re: The Incredibles 2 (spoiler free, mostly)

I think finding women attractive in general is frowned upon by some Yeah that whole 'all sex is rape and even hitting on a woman is sexual assault' type of thinking really pisses me off, heterosexual men finding women attractive is pretty much the single most normal, most natural thing on the plane...

POTENTIAL X-MEN COMICS SPOILER: Gambit proposes to Rogue at Pete and Kitty's wedding. They're getting an ongoing series called 'Mr. and Mrs. X' Well, I'm glad they finally decided to marry Peter and Kitty after all of this time. It got really stupid after a while with Kitty dating random characters...

Re: Modern Comics & Relationships Between Heroes

Did anyone — anyone at all — really believe that T’Challa and Ororo became a couple for any reason other than being Marvel Comics’ two most prominent Black characters? Might as well have had Silver Samurai marry Jubilee. They met once! They’re both Asian! It’s true love! The shocking thing was some...

Re: Modern Comics & Relationships Between Heroes

I agree about the weirdness of the sudden relationship, the most notable in recent years aside from those mentioned was the Carol Danvers/James Rhodes coupling, I remember thinking 'Wait, what? when did that happen?' I thought I'd missed a story-line somewhere. I've also noticed how Marvel seems to ...

Re: Captain Marvel Worries

The thing is, the circuitry in their homes analyses their surroundings, calculates a 12 dimensional data map of everything within a thousand mile radius and determines what outer shell would blend in best with the environment. All their chameleon circuits are set to "native African hut". ... I hate...

Re: Captain Marvel Worries

Those who hate Shuri, hate life. Shuri was a bit smug and annoying, but was clearly meant to be so in-universe- every time she said something, other characters would give that "REALLY?" look. Another part of her character was to show the less-serious, less-stoic part of Wakanda- watch how she repea...

Re: Captain Marvel Worries

Ah thanks, I'll be getting it on DVD at some point like all the other movies, I just haven't got around to it yet. The one clip I have seen was Shuri saying to Everett Ross 'Don't scare me like that colonizer', I remember thinking 'Wow, that's a bit much, I hope he calls her out over it' He does no...
