In the words of (paraphrased) words of Quentin Quire "If it's one thing X-men do, it's hook up in various improbable ways." »
What people seem to misunderstand about animals doing badly in captivity is that 9.9 times out of ten it's not because the animal is 'bad at surviving' but because we absolutely suck at understanding the necessary parts of animal care for that species. Care at zoos and preserves is far more of a crapshoot than most… »
There is consensus on at least a few. Raptor species are certain at this point. Juvenile T Rex is also near certain, although adult is a little murkier. »
It amuses me that he put on a lab coat over his costume more than it should.
Also, wait, Spider-Man teaches at the Xavier Institute now? What book did that happen in? (I thought I had caught up on my X-men at this point). »
One factor at least is that creative fiction tends to use British accents as a shorthand for 'intellectual and sophisticated but restrained', which is what most 'Spy' fiction we're talking about is about, all about a charming, sophisticated rogue type who has the one-up on everyone and is just so damn more clever than… »
There are rumors that Marvel is out for Fox's blood though. It's a long and nasty history between these two. »
Yeah, that definitely doesn't make sense. Corporations have such a history of never making the same mistake twice, it's just unreasonable. »
I actually disagree, unless SDCC moves it's timeframe as well. It's already a hectic and insane tourist destination in the summer. Add a con to it and it's a nightmare waiting to happen.
(It would also mean that SDCC all but temporarily takes over Disneyland regardless—I mean, how many folks are like 'Hey, never been… »
I played a lot of Evolve with friends over the weekend, and outside of the whole DLC nonsense (which, to be totally honest, is a huge mis-step for 2k), I found it really enjoyable. I always enjoy games that really create an 'experience', and a number of clever mechanics in the game really make monster hunting a… »
At least it makes it completely credible that nobody believes her. One could imagine a conversation about the website "Dude, did you see The Streak Lives blog?"
"It looks like it was made by an 8 year old, are you kidding me?" »
Congratulations! Sorry to hear about your immigration issues. A friend of mine is dealing with a pretty similar horror story, it's insanely brutal. Hopefully things'll get worked out. »
Hey I remember that (I couldn't wrap my head around the sentiment, but I enjoyed discussing it with her).
I will deeply miss her perspectives. »
Two things to remember though was that Samurai weren't exactly willing to commit Seppuku for ANY failure, or that it was common as we think, lot's of historical accounts of Samurai losing or fleeing battles and just chalking it up to lesson learned. There were also a fair amount of sellsword-style Ronin who lost their… »
I mean, the killjoy answer is because it's a visual shorthand for 'Space battles are happening and humans are being injured the DRAMA!' but let's be honest: Starfleet's safety record is horrible in literally every way. Anything vaguely anamolous event threatens key systems at the drop of the hat, the ship holodeck… »
On the other hand, reading his work was infuriating because he would 'reference' the same places and locations but details would completely change (sometimes chapter to chapter) which came across as lazy and contrived. »
I've heard some scattered mutterings from insiders that FFG prioritizes pretty art and generally a 'pretty board' but tends to rush the actual mechanics. A couple who were particularly bitter suggested they're less interested in if a game plays than if it sells.
Grain of salt and all that, but it does tend to explain… »
