Someone else wrote this, but I was thinking the same thing.


“What’s going on in here?”

“We’re killing monsters. AND YOU DON’T WANT NO PART OF THIS SHIT.”

“What does it do?”

“It causes property damage, and killing it will make you look really good, and it’ll make people respect you and look up to you. IT’S A NIGHTMARE.”

“I’m thinkin maybe I want to try some of that.”

Debate / Re: Tulsi Gabbard is running for President

Also, my point was that you don't go from calling people fighting for equality "extremists" and believing homosexuality is a disease that can be treated and reversed to being all "Oh, no, it's fine!" in a few years. Those initial opinions of her were pretty damn strong and hardline.

I disagree. This happens all time especially with people being taught these things by there parents. Just look at Megan Phelps-Roper, who's father founded WBC and Derek Black, who's father founded Stormfront.

Yeah, that article said she was working with her father when she was 17 back in 1998.  I had similar views back then.  I changed and I figured Tulsi changed as well.

According to these articles, a lot of these quotes and the legislation she pushed for was well into the mid-2000's.

In one instance in February 2004, Gabbard, at the time a 22-year-old state representative, was testifying against a bill aimed at legalizing same-sex civil unions.

“To try to act as if there is a difference between ‘civil unions’ and same-sex marriage is dishonest, cowardly and extremely disrespectful to the people of Hawaii,” she said. “As Democrats, we should be representing the views of the people, not a small number of homosexual extremists.”.

Like I said... best case scenario, she's just a typical politician who is just easily swayed by political winds and just goes with the flow.

Worst case... she is a bigot who is the same.

That's 15 years ago. She could very well still believe any number of hateful, mentally incompetent things like that. On the other hand, when someone's views DON'T change at all on subjects over the course of 15-20 years, I find that to be more worrisome.

Those people tend to not deal in facts and focus on emotion and rhetoric because it's easier to "win".

Are you asking about the MCU versions?

Then we'll start with gokenadams if he does it again along with the next individual who breaks the rule.

It's being discussed in the "new comic stuff thread" as we speak.

I'm admit I don't recall the Isengard battle...which film was that?
Isengard is one of two towers they had to defeat.

Stop using those shithole sites to host your images.

I removed your links and replaced them with images from a secure site in much higher quality so we can see how shitty the art is accompanying the writing.

That art looks like something somebody would quickly draw up for a meme. WTF

How does the story go now?
Probably with Rambo getting killed very early in the story.

ICT / Re: Is Thor TRULY an speedster? FTL? Reaction/speed combat rank
« on: January 05, 2019, 01:46:13 PM »
No. He can react quickly in fights, but outside of recent developments by Jane Thor that may never carry over to the Odinson, actual super-speed isn't one of his powers.

Characters with super-speed rarely operate anywhere near maximum efficiency, regardless of how they're presented in vs. threads.

Hahaha what the fuck, guy? This is a weird one.
I was thinking about random shit characters have done like sonic boom snaps, Spider-Man KOing people with a finger flick, etc. This seemed like an extension that I haven't seen done before.

ICT / Strongest character Superman can beat in tug of war
« on: January 02, 2019, 08:12:03 PM »
Who can Superman beat in a tug of war using only the strength of turning his head to the left?

Here are the stipulations:

Superman is:
  • holding an unbreakable 10 meter length of rope between his molars. The rope also won't directly harm his teeth or the opposing character.
  • floating 3 inches above the ground OR standing with his feet planted on the ground. Give different results, if you think they would matter.
  • Only able to turn his head to the left, while the opposing character pulls the rope to Superman's right.
Other character is:
  • Able to use any physical strength at their disposal
  • Prevented from touching Superman in any way

Duel of the Fates is objectively better.

Duel of the Fates doesn't get people psyched up for a fight like MORTAL KOMBAT!
