General Chat / Will you guys still be posting when you’re my age?
« on: April 08, 2019, 05:37:13 AM »
Just bored and curious.

Most of us have been posting roughly the same amount of time (i began in ‘00), but i was older when i started. Will you guys still be dicking around on this or some MB when you're 50 or do you have a shelf life?

General Chat / My spouse’s idea of spring cleaning
« on: April 05, 2019, 06:49:43 PM »
In the last two days we’ve had a new washer & dryer, a new 22 cubic foot freezer, and a new bedroom set come to the house. Tomorrow, a new fridge.
I’m still laid up from having my appendix out, so i’ve just been chilling in the living room not helping.
Earlier, my youngest son walked over and asked how i was doing and i said fine, “just watching new stuff come in, old stuff go out”.
Right on fucking cue, one of the delivery guys, a nice looking young dude, comes in the door, and stands there. He hits all three Bs (buff bald black).
My son pats me on the shoulder, says “your turn”, and walks away.

Little shit.  :o

ICT / John Reese Vs Michael Westen
« on: April 03, 2019, 07:14:37 AM »

Only ever saw the first 3 eps of PoI, but ppl talking about the series paint Reese as a real badass.
Michael Westen i know for sure was a badass.
They match up pretty well size wise, so who wins a straight up H2H fight?

ICT / have some Pride, ppl...
« on: April 02, 2019, 01:31:35 AM »
...the team of evil parents from Marvel’s Runaways, to be precise.
Thats right, its another team builder many will click on, none will reply to!

The Pride were 6 couples made up of
-time travelers
-evil geniuses

The build is, like the above, put together villainous couples you can see breeding a team of superkids in the future.
no Marvel characters allowed.

-You can use existing villain couples, but they cant already have kids.
-You can ship villainous couples.
-You can switch out TWO categories (i’m thinking mutants, as thats a bitch not using Marvel, and time travelers/displaced are kinda scarce but its up to you) for ones of your creation.
-Bonus points if you come up w. an expy for the Gibborim to manipulate your couples.

Punch & Jewelee

Their kid would be some harlequin themed little smartass. He/she would be a gymnastic gadget user, incorporating his/her parent’s alien tech into his/her suit and gear in new and interesting ways. Think Green Goblin.

Chronos & Lady Chronos

Their kid would have inherent time related powers (psychometry, precognition, chronokinesis...) from the parents’ constant time stream exposure. Potentially the most powerful of the team.

Nightwing & Tarantula

Put up for adoption after Tarantula’s ‘one night stand’ w. NW. Grew up normal. Smart, good looking, popular, naturally curious, athletic. On the HS wrestling & lacrosse teams. Nowhere near a street leveler though. Think teen Rick Jones or Lois Lane. The mystery of his/her real parents is why he/she stays w. the team.

Ultraa & Maxima

These two finally get together. Their kid would be the same, powers wise. Much to his parents’ chagrin he/she is more an intellectual than a warrior. It’d be like two Klingons having a Vulcan for a child. Sure the kid can kick ass, but he/she would rather talk things out. This kid would have emotions though, and just prefer to kick back and enjoy life, before being crowned a planetary leader.

Killer Croc & Enchantress

Their kid would be a fierce dragon like or sexy serpentish magic user. Would be able to spellcast as well as be physically dominant. Think Savage Dragon’s kid, only magical. He or she would actually be very well adjusted despite a technically monstrous appearance. They’d be handsome/hot, not scary.

Ultra Humanite & Satanna

They’d have a child prodigy with multiple cloned bodies hidden all over the world, which his/her brain could switch to at will. These bodies would have different abilities as needed. He/she would also have the means to bring bodies TO a fight, controlling up to 6 at once effectively. All this back & forth would leave the kid a bit scattered, at anything outside hard science. Think Doc Brown as a kid.

The H’San Natall

These guys actually tried something similar to the Runaways plot, which gave us the ‘alien’ Teen Titans (Argent, Prysm, Risk...). So, i figure they can be behind setting all these villains and their kids up in some world domination scheme.

ICT / Okay, so who’s the best -trainer- in the Rocky-verse?
« on: March 27, 2019, 07:40:40 AM »
Unsure if we’ve covered this in depth?

Let me preface by saying i know the below doesnt cover everything each trainer’s done, and there’s overlap in assistance/each have trained their fighters only to have them lose. I’m just hitting some highlights. Figure if this gets going those other details can be weighed in.

MICKEY-trained Rocky to fight Apollo (2x)Clubber Lang

DUKE-trained Apollo to fight Rocky (2x)/Rocky to fight Drago/Mason Dixon

APOLLO-trained Rocky to fight Clubber Lang

CLUBBER LANG-seemed to have trained himself to fight Rocky (2x)

THE RUSSIAN GOVT-trained Drago to fight Apollo/Rocky

ROCKY-trained Tommy Gunn to fight Union Cane, trained Adonis to fight Ricky Conlan/Danny Wheeler/Viktor Drago

DRAGO-trained Viktor Drago to fight Adonis (2x)

L’IL DUKE-trained Adonis to fight Viktor Drago

special mention:
PAULIE-trained Robert (Rocky Jr.) to fight the neighborhood bullies. It always amazed me Paulie had picked up the skills to do this after helping out during the various movies, so props to Paulie.

Music, Movies, Tv and Books / Oh, Captain Kirk...
« on: March 19, 2019, 07:30:31 PM »
...you didnt boldly go nearly as many places as we thought...

below is a pretty awesome breakdown on Kirk’s sex life.
If its too much sexual history to read, just go down to the end, it has the straight numbers...:

In addition to Carol, Miramanee, and Deela, we can make a good case for Drusilla, the Roman slave girl from "Bread and Circuses." We see them making out, then there's your classic "lamp burning down" dissolve to show the passage of hours, then we see Kirk asleep in the same room. It's not definitive, but the implication is clear.

It's also a safe bet that he got laid by one or more Argelian women while on shore leave after "Wolf in the Fold," given that Argelius is a hedonistic, sexually liberal culture. But we never met any of them on camera.

Women he probably slept with:

Areel Shaw -- Described Kirk as "my dear old love," suggesting they were closely involved for a time.

Janet Wallace -- Another old flame who keeps track of how long it's been since they broke up, so it must've been pretty serious.

Janice Lester -- She and Kirk were together for a year, according to her.

Women he kissed but definitely didn't sleep with:

Eve McHuron -- She tried to seduce him but couldn't go through with it.

Janice Rand -- The evil Kirk's rape attempt didn't get past first base, and the intact Kirk was too much of a professional to even let himself look at her legs.

Andrea -- Doesn't go beyond kissing because she's "not programmed for [him]."

Helen Noel -- People often think they were an item, but that was an illusion planted by the neural neutralizer. In reality, they only flirted and danced at the Christmas party, and the brainwashed Kirk kissed her briefly before coming to his senses.

Sylvia -- He tries to seduce her to gain an advantage, but she catches on before he gets past first base.

Marlena -- He simply doesn't have time. The only gap in their scenes together is the act break after Spock warns Kirk he's been ordered to kill him, and when we come back, Marlena's still in uniform and reacting to that event. So there's no opportunity for sex.

Nona -- They're definitely headed that way, but it's scuttled by a case of mugatus interruptus.

Shahna -- Ditto, except this time it's Galtus interruptus.

Miranda Jones -- His seduction bombed totally.

Uhura -- They were forced to make out by the Platonians, and Kirk regained control of himself before it could go further.

Marta -- She interrupted their makeout by attempting, err, premature evisceration.

Martia (from ST VI) -- They only kissed once and then she left.

Uncertain cases:

Lenore Karidian -- They fell into an embrace at the fade-out and we didn't see either of them again for some time. But he was just using her to get to her father, so the question is, how far would he take it?

Ruth -- With the fantasy version, probably yes, eventually. But the real Ruth was a memory from his Academy days, yet she was played by a 32-year-old actress. So she would've been an "older woman." Was she his Mrs. Robinson, or just someone he worshipped from afar?

Edith Keeler -- She was the love of his life, but would a "Sister" Edith from 1930 have been willing to have sex before marriage? The Crucible trilogy by David R. George says yes, and it's true that sexual values in that era were probably more flexible than we assume (and more liberal than later in the '50s, say), but it's hard to be sure.

Kelinda -- Very probably not; they still seemed to be at first base when interrupted by Rojan. But there was a cutaway, so it's theoretically possible they could've gone all the way, gotten dressed again, and started over again with the kissing.

Anne Mulhall -- If it did happen, it was while their bodies were in use by other minds, so it wouldn't really count anyway.

Elaan -- Again, probably not, since they always seemed to be getting interrupted, but we can't be sure how much time elapsed between scenes.

Odona -- There's an act break in which it might've happened, but it doesn't seem too likely that they had time.

Rayna Kapec -- They probably didn't have the time or opportunity, since the whole whirlwind courtship takes less than four hours, but it can't be definitively ruled out.

So the breakdown, for women appearing on camera:

Definite sexual intimacy: 2
Near-certain intimacy: 5
Indeterminate: 8
Kissing but definitely no sex: 12

So much for the stereotype that Kirk slept with every woman he met. That's basically projecting an anachronistic set of assumptions onto a 1960s television show. I think some people forget how strict the censorship was at the time.

Showcase of the Immortals / Best heel/face runs
« on: March 18, 2019, 06:13:43 PM »
Not initial turns, but actual runs to follow up.

Some wrestlers can do both heel/face so well its amazing, and many get multiple runs in each category.

So what i’m asking for are, pick a wrestler and give us what you think is his/her best/most iconic/definitive (whatever got you most excited) turn as both heel and face.
Be specific if you can.

I’ll start w. HBK.
When he turned heel and broke up the Rockers Brutus Beefcake’s Barbershop in 1992, not only was the turn awesome (superkick through the window) but he followed up w. a defining run.

 He just blossomed as a singles star win or lose. He put on great match after great match and left his old persona in the dust.
I wish i could have seen more of it but i joined the Army around that time and lost track of wrestling.

His best face run for me was coming back from forced retirement, w. his back hopefully healed up, and taking on HHH (unsanctioned) at Summerslam in ‘02. 

Watching him go to the outside from the top rope, and sell everything HHH did to him, i was legit hoping he wouldnt die.
He followed up by beating Trips at Elimination Chamber a few months later, getting the world title for the first time since ‘98. Epic feel great comeback story face run.

No prep.

Music, Movies, Tv and Books / Betty White
« on: March 15, 2019, 05:22:54 AM »
Only has 116 acting credits to her name according to IMDB (the first in 1945!).
Thats insane considering youngsters like Dwayne Johnson already have 103.  ???

Showcase of the Immortals / The new Dx
« on: March 13, 2019, 06:47:32 PM »
Interesting build from Bleacher Report:


Dolph Ziggler-the Leader
Elias-the Other Guy

Jazzy Gabert-the Huge Chick

The Brian Kendrick-the Cruiserweight

Roode & Gable-the Tag Team

Their reasoning is sound, even if a couple of their picks seem iffy to me.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Tweaks?

ICT / Riddick Vs Moorwen

Saw this one at KMC.
Bear in mind Riddick’s video games/animated adventures are actually canon.
Fight in a darkened forest.
