Re: Foods What We Have Made And Eaten

I asked my local Cafe to make this for me... https://68.media.tumblr.com/967658c31fbbe59585e647f503926560/tumblr_ootlipW1tn1rsi9ngo1_1280.jpg With Speculoos Cookie Butter, Cream, Gelato and two shots of Espress, this is a *real* Unicorn's drink. I call it the Haarlem Shake&Buzz.

Re: Alex's Stream Shelter? Safe Spaces? Echo Chambers? DISCU

Anyone who is elected should be criticised. The fear that is happening at the moment, not completely unjustified, to me isn't warranted until the bad things start happening. Be prepared but don't jump to worst case scenario. All that's going to happen is people working themselves up into a fuss and...

Re: Nintendo Switch

Got the chance to pre-order with a fully refundable deposit, so decided to take a punt. If it's great, then good I've got mine on release day, otherwise I get the deposit refunded.

Re: Nintendo Switch

I really dislike how little solid information we're getting. They announced that the Switch direct won't be until January. If that's the soonest we're getting information like I think it is... that's not something I'm happy about. Keep in mind this is meant to launch in March. Giving users two to t...

Re: Nintendo Switch

The hardware is an Nvidia Tegra, but it's not yet known the exact specifications of it. What's important is that the Tegra is mostly bound by power constraints, so the throttle can be opened up when it's not running of a battery. So when docked in it's power cradle, it can run at full speed for 1080...

Re: Loading Time Digest - August 2016

I for one am all in favour of abolishing urinals entirely. They only exist at all because factory workers wanted to reduce 'time lost' to bathroom breaks. They were a retrograde step back to roman era communal bench toilets. Down with standing!

Re: Codes of Conduct

I think comedians are allowed to use whatever they have at hand if they can make something funny out of it. I think Roiland can, but that may be a matter of personal taste. Comedy doesn't get an automatic pass. And again, most of the time it's a judgement call, but there's still things that are har...

Re: Codes of Conduct

So... The R Word. There's an episode of "Rick and Morty" where they indulge in a diatribe about it. And I hated it. It's out of place, and it feels entirely like someone hurt Justin Roiland's feelings once by asking him if he really wanted to use that word the way he does. So we get an Aut...

Re: Codes of Conduct

If you need to write several paragraphs to explain why it's okay for you to use a word that might upset people, you might want to think about if it's also necessary to use that word.

Three silly bits with that picture. Fans had been insulted by the director and some of the cast. A) When someone derides you and declares they are refusing to see the work, they stop being your fan. B) I haven't seen anyone "insulted" by the cast and crew of Ghostbusters, who wasn't being...

It'd be really nice if we could get a team together for competitive, because the pubqueues are a tire fire right now. Particularly if, like me, you're best at the support roles.

Re: Politics and the Vague Fear of Something Called Donald T

Of course, the answer is "follow the money". Trump raises political funds that go in one direction, Trump owned businesses. No matter what, Trump has already successfully pumped a ton of money out of the political process and into his pocket. And he may not be interested in increasing his ...

If it were a "false flag" operation, it'd still require the GOP to actively support a racist idiot. So either way, they deserve to fall apart.

Re: Masculinity

Masculinity is not the opposite of Feminism. Nor is Masculinity intractably tied to gender. Nor is Masculinity inherently 'wrong'.

Some people think Poe is sexually attracted to Fin. Evidence being telling Fin to keep his jacket due to it looking good on him and then biting his lip suggestively. I didn't notice this subtext until it was pointed out and I looked it up I mean, the minute I saw this on the screen I turned to ...

Re: Recent Judge bannings

My thoughts are... A six month suspension is slightly long, but I think that participating in a private forum for leaking and distributing cards is worth a suspension as a Judge. Judges are not ordinary players, they're in a position of authority and expected to show good... well, Judgement.

Let's talk lightsabers for a bit... I just realised that Finn is using a lightsaber the way someone who has watched movies would use it. Ray is using it in desperation to just not die. Ren has obviously been trained in how to use it, but is doing so slopply, over dramatically and with too much haste...

Re: The Force Awakens.

It's known that Kasdan wanted to kill off Han Solo at the end of Empire or the start of Jedi. But Lucas vetoed the idea for what ever reasons Lucas had. So to me this signals that Kasdan has creative control over the franchise going forward.

Re: The Force Awakens.

Potted review: It's good. Really good. Not as good as Empire. Not the best movie this year, but still really good. It hits its beats, keeps you captured, and makes enough references to nostalgia while still being it's own thing. I partially agree that it's retreading the same narrative as the or...
