X-Men need to get 6/10 against a solo character. Who do they beat?

Nods to fangirl's WW and Lobo threads.

Sports Talk / Just had my first/biggest draft of the season
« on: August 31, 2017, 09:44:29 PM »
12 team league.
Keeper league.
Can trade players for picks.

Here's my roster:

1 (4th) - LeSean McCoy, RB1
1 (11th) - DeMarco Murray, RB2
2 - Amari Cooper, WR1
3 - Keenan Allen, WR2
3 - Demariyus Thomas, WR3
4 - Jordan Reed, TE1
5 - Rob Kelley, RB3
6 - Delanie Walker, TE2
7 - Tom Brady, QB1 (Keeper pick)
8 - Jonathan Stewart, RB4
9 - Andy Dalton, QB2
10 - Adam Thielen, WR4
11 - New England, DEF1
12 - no pick, traded away
13 - Matt Prater, K1
14 - no pick, traded away
15 - Tyreek Hill, WR5 (Keeper pick)

I somehow ended up with the #1 receiver of all four AFC West teams.

And two tight ends.

Anyway, my FAVORITE PICK: Adam Thielen in the 10th round of a PPR league. I think he has really good potential if I need a WR fill in.

And LEAST FAVORITE PICK: Jonathan fucking Stewart at all, much less in the 8th, even as my RB4. God, running backs are fucking hard to come by this year. That's why I went McCoy at #4 over Julio Jones and DeMarco at #11 over, say, Jordy Nelson. I knew the pool was going to dry up FAST and virtually everyone after the first round is some level of a sizable gamble. I wanted to hedge my bets on guys guaranteed to at least do something.

I'm not upset about this team. I feel okay. I should at least be in the hunt all year.

I have been looking for Okada/Omega and Naito/Omega online, but no dice. Omega and Naito are my two favorite guys in NJPW, so I am excited for the final. I have obviously heard both matches are glorious.

Debate / Flip-flopping: Does it deserve its bad rap?
« on: June 29, 2017, 04:19:39 PM »
So sometimes it seems like one of the worst accusations you can levy at a politician is flip-flopping. "He used to believe THIS, but now he believes THAT! Can you believe this guy?"

But is flip-flopping always a bad thing?

I mean, there are obviously degrees. If there is video of a politician saying (A) 12 months ago, then (B) 6 months ago, then (A) 3 months ago, and then (B) again last night... that's bad. That's pandering to your audience and saying whatever people want to hear. I think we can all agree that guy's a schmuck.

But if someone said (A) 5 years ago, but last year started saying (B), why is that NECESSARILY bad? Couldn't a guy have developed a more informed opinion over time and with research? Could new details or situations come to light that changed his stance? Why is that "flip-flopping"?

Would we really rather have someone whose rigid opinion is unchangeable? Someone who is so in love with confirmation bias, that he would never alter his course? Isn't that far, far worse?

What sayeth the learned masses of HC?

General Chat / Anyone want to know who fangirl actually is?

I work with this lady whose cubicle is a Wonder Woman fan's dream. She has (that I've noticed so far):

*Two large posters on the exterior of her cube (one official comic art; one hand drawn, but I'm not sure if she did it or if she got it at a con).
*Two WW pop vinyls (one regular and one Bombshell version).
*A Bombshell Wonder Woman/Rosie The Riveter mash-up picture that says "I can do it!" or something.
*A WW Pez dispenser.
*A framed picture with four WW comic covers in it.
*A Wonder Woman lunchbox
*A WW greeting card
And probably some other stuff I haven't taken notice of yet.

It's a pretty impressive shrine, to be sure. She has a lot of other decorations, but Wonder Woman is the major theme there.

I'mma go ask her if Diana could take Superman in a fight. If I never make it back, you'll know why.

ICT / Iceman vs an MMA guy
« on: June 07, 2017, 09:10:07 AM »
Average John and the Batman/Bruce Lee thread got me thinking...

As far as comics go, Iceman is Z-List. Aside from a fluke or a gimmick, he really shouldn't be a match for any halfway competent fighter. D-List fighters should mop him up hand-to-hand.

However, Iceman IS a hero and has a lengthy combat history and ages worth of training in a school for a superheroes...

Combine that with how comic book fighting is an entire other plane of existence from IRL fighting, and... could Iceman hang with an average MMA fighter?

What do you say?

General Chat / Which summer is it, anyway?
« on: May 09, 2017, 02:43:09 PM »
Speaking of Mexican food, when I come visit Xerxes we're going on a food tour of California; so be ready for that
When are you trying to come out here? We need to get this food agenda developing.

I probably don't have the bandwidth for another existential crisis road trip until next summer. This last year has been pretty nuts
Summer 2017 IS the next summer. Just do both summers.

So I saw this in the Food Forum, and I thought it deserved its own topic.

Is Summer 2017 NEXT summer or THIS summer... or both?

How do you refer to events like that (like, say it's Tuesday and you want to talk about the Friday that is upcoming. Do you say "next Friday", "this Friday", or something else)?

Game Cage / Ugh. Does anyone else play Marvel Puzzle Quest?
« on: April 13, 2017, 09:12:22 AM »
So this game is years old, whatever; I spend most of my life out of touch. My buddy just introduced me to it in January. I wasn't going to get into it, but when I was in the hospital for a few days after my seizure, I started playing, and this game is like crack. Four months later, I'm still playing too damn much.

Anyone else play?

Food and Fitness / Where my picky eaters at?
« on: April 11, 2017, 08:00:27 AM »
So there's lots of "What's your favorite _____?" topics. What foods can you just not stand?

I have unfortunate tastebuds in that there is just a LOT of food I flat-out hate. It's not that I generally won't try things--I will give a lot of crap a solid effort--but it turns out that I just can't tolerate so much stuff.

So what about you guys? Can you just eat anything (by-and-large)? Is there a list of "normal" food that you can't abide? Let's hear it.
