  1. How is the guy's brother a traitor? Also I'd never compare the Clinton's to Atreides. They're more like the Bene Gesserit. But you're right, Trump certainly strikes the same figure and moral strength of Leto II.
  2. Wait, the Sherlock guys made a Dracula show and people hated it? Let's give that a shot, I'm sure it'll be a fascinating dumpster fire.
  3. And his twin brother, I heard. Which would be a federal offense, no? But I guess since the senate is under his control and he doesn't face consequences for his criminal activity, Baron Harkonnen can do whatever the **** he likes.
  4. I Am Mother. Decent sci-fi movie with a strong premise and great cast. Recommended.
  5. I've always been a Blizzard fan, but the past year they've been really garbage. I kept off the hate train for a long time, because I've still enjoyed most of their games even if they weren't high watermarks. I enjoyed StarCraft 2 and Diablo 3 and Legion was the most fun I ever had with World of WarCraft. But... Between the disappointing product launches, unkept promises, layoffs, corporate political bootlicking and lackluster announcements... I'm pretty sure it's the first time I haven't pre-ordered a WoW expansion. WarCraft 3 is one of my favorite games of all time yet I didn't purchase
  6. http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20150310-the-truth-about-giant-pandas Read this article about how wild pandas are apparently much more dangerous and have a strong sex drive, and the whole image of pandas is skewed by pandas getting somewhat "domesticated". Of course, it forgets to mention that wild pandas are almost constantly having diarrhea and have their backsides covered in poop.
  7. I'm glad I didn't pre-order that. When they announced it at BlizzCon 2018 they said it was going to have updated missions, cutscenes, cinematics and voice acting to better reflect current WarCraft canon, but apparently it has none of that. On a different note, in the zoomed out gameplay it's not as noticeable but I don't think any of the models really look like they fit WarCraft and Blizzard's style, they're more like JRPG designs. Surprise surprise, they were outsourced... Finally! Can't wait to see what Frictional does next. Hope they can scare me like Amnesia again.
  8. Yeah, that's the Krampus thing. They're also fond of throwing hard candy, hitting naughty kids with wooden canes and giving them salt.
  9. Black Pete is actually at the center of much controversy so many people here disagree. As a Dutch person I feel like I should respond. Personally, I don't think Black Pete is completely racist but the design has enough roots in racist caricature (Saint Nicholas' Moorish servants can certainly be recognized) for me to understand the criticism, especially considering my country's sordid history. Blackface doesn't carry the same taboo here. Blackface taboo stems mostly from other country's history of racism such as minstrel shows and the racist connotations are brought over from there - unli
  10. Just finished watching Knives Out. Very much enjoyed it. I figured out the villain in the first few scenes, which is usually a bad sign for a whodunit, but the actual how and when continued to surprise and delight that I'm sure it was intentional. Like an episode of Columbo. Rian Johnson works better in a genre built on subversion.
  11. Anyone have experience using an ethylene absorber in a refrigerator to keep food from spoiling. I'm sick of forgetting my fruit until the smell hits me upon opening the door and was given this as a tip by someone else with ADHD-C but I can't find user experiences online.
  12. Christopher Tolkien, who managed to posthumously compile, edit and publish much of his father's Middle-Earth work, passed at the ripe age of 95.
  13. It's fine. Baldur's Gate made people believe TrueNeutral people are always vicious jerks like me r, so I get the confusion.
  14. That was always meant to be ironic.
  15. Since you brought it back up after saying you'll stay on topic... (Side note, Gromnir Il-Khan was right that something was wrong but was completely oblivious as to how and responded to his hunch with malice and idiocy.) I will remind you that I just provided direct, indisputable evidence in the form of post-numbered quotes in a previous post that the CNN debate discussion was entirely and solely limited to you and me. I made the baby eating joke, you responded to it directly and I spoke to no other member about the topic. Your statement that my "ruse" started before you got in
  16. Doesn't need to be bigger, Gromnir knows what it is.
  17. " 'course were all a ruse, even when you were making such posts before Gromnir posted regarding the debate? were all made up nonsense? " Direct quotes featuring my original joke and only comment about the CNN hosted democratic debate and your direct response to it. Follow the quotes and you will find that though others responded to my post, I did not respond to them and specifically engaged with you and you alone on this topic. A perfect demonstration: you invent something your opponent supposedly said or did and debate those projected constructs instead. There's that epiphany you w
  18. Wow. You're still going. I'm aware that my defense being fake doesn't help my defense. My defense wasn't a defense. You won the CNN debate by default because it wasn't real. Hell, you're misrepresenting fake arguments. How is it even possible that I admit the whole thing is a joke and I still come out as least ridiculous? I doubled down because of the way you acted, not because of CNN. My "dogged criticism"! Intentional ommission isn't forgetting. I haven't followed the US primaries at all, I've been too busy. I don't care whether Bernie or Warren get the nom because as far as I can tell
  19. I stole that joke from the clone high subreddit and posted it for a laugh. I didn't actually watch the debate, I still haven't. I had to look up what the actual quote was about after you started into me about my evil intentions, about how I MUST have picked the gender quote on purpose and how that displays my obvious bias. I "doubled down" by googling your arguments so I can find counters to see how much more you'd come up with about how evil I am, I just tried to bow out because it was getting old and repetitive.
  20. Well done, buddy! You said the real TrueNeutral actually said those things that you say that the real TrueNeutral actually said, so clearly the real TrueNeutral must have actually said those things you just said that the real TrueNeutral actually said because otherwise you wouldn't have said the real TrueNeutral actually said those things that you sayvthe real TrueNeutral actually said. You take that well deserved and real win over the real TrueNeutral!
  21. Gromnir, I read your entire post but really I struggle to find things that we haven't already covered (with the exception of the "how he could have responded differently" bit which, fine, he could have been more eloquent in saying roughly the same thing). Here's a summary of how it would go - I'd repeat that the context of the question made it leading and therefore biased. You will respond saying it is not leading and therefore not biased. I'll repeat that I chose my snarky example to highlight the biased context of the exchange, and you'll remain convinced that since it's not actually biased
