The Hellboy comics are good, especially if you like Lovecraftian stories.

Agreed, and a classic Hellboy villain just made his/her/its return this month.

I have several Manhattan rec's aside from the classic Mylos and such

Hit me up, friendo. Queens recommendations are also good.

Gree, I thought Taverna Kyclades in Bayside was really good. They also have restaurants in Astoria and Manhattan but I’ve never been to them

Lemon potatoes
Lemon chicken soup (avgolemono)
All sorts of seafood
The still-beating hearts of Turkish warriors as Constantinople is restored and Constantine XI Palaeologus is revenged.

They sound like assholes. I’d be pissed too.

This goes back to what I said about civility and honesty being co-dependent. I’m sure these pricks asked you to do this extra unpaid work in a very civil manner, but the request was a dishonest one, so their civility is irrelevant. And this causes you, a normally easygoing guy (from what I’ve noticed on Herochat, anyway) to become justifiably uncivil, which doesn’t change the fact that your complaint is an honest one. Now they’ll turn around and deman civility, without fulfilling their half of the social contract, which is honesty.

It’s very hard to keep your cool when someone is taking advantage of you and lying to your face. It’s worse when they know that you know they are lying, and are counting on your sense of civility to keep you from calling them out on it.

Yeah I've been told to take a week off after my last screaming match at the Rabbi last Sunday.
Well ok...I also had a screaming match with his wife, 2 days prior...

I've lost a week's wages & I'm seriously questioning whether being civil to people I dislike & don't trust is worth the grief...

If you’re screaming at them, is it really civility?

We gonna talk about him defending The Saudis?

At the risk of exposing my ignorance on most matters economic, aren't our financial and overall Middle Eastern interests intimately involved with the Saudis, for better or for worse? That being said, he is doing it in a clumsy way.

I'm amazed that they killed this reporter in such an amateurish fashion. You'd think they'd have the money and influence to hire real professionals for the planning and execution of an assassination. 

Keep in mind that the MCU started out only as loosely connected stories, which was a good thing. There would be nods to other franchises, but each one stood on its own, at least initially. This let each franchise get its own feel. The Netflix moved a bit away from this, and all of their shows have the same mood.

So while it doesn't take anything away from the DC shows to be in separate universes, there's no real reason to make them that way. I think it would be cooler if they did share the same universe, and just rarely interacted. Maybe have some villains cross over from one series to another.

If you want a functional society, yes, it is very important. But it also goes hand in hand with honesty. Using civility to mask dishonesty isn't enough. Being honest without civility isn't great either.

Marvel Zombies / Re: WTF? Carol Danvers origin retconned
« on: October 17, 2018, 09:52:22 AM »
In general I find retconning origins usually doesn’t make things better, and comes off as lazy. I believe Riv and Xerxes when they say it’s good so I’ll check it out... but that CBR writeup doesn’t really do it any favors.

Maybe the dad’s family objected to the marriage because they didn’t want their son marrying a crazy white woman who went around driving everyone crazy by insisting she was a Cherokee.

Yeah, that 1/256th Cherokee was a real deal breaker back in the day.

Didn't she also say that her dad's family never accepted her mother because she was an Indian? Did anyone run this down, or is she fucking her dad's family over?

she really popular in the media. Doubt MSNBC of the world go to tear into the maybe first female and Muslim president.  that would be a or nightmare

FYI, Tulsi is Hindu, not Muslim.

Besides, we've already had a Muslim president.
