Game Cage / Super Mario Bros movie is in development...
« on: November 14, 2017, 12:25:15 PM »

The day many thought would never come has arrived. The Wall Street Journal reports that Nintendo has made a deal with Illumination Entertainment, the animation studio that makes the Despicable Me movies (as well as recent hits Sing and The Secret Life of Pets) to do an animated Mario movie.

According to the report, the companies have been in negotiations for a year and the fact Universal (which finances and distributes Illumination’s movie) has partnered with Nintendo for several theme parks was helpful. Right now, the deal is one for one movie, but there is potential for more.
Of course, Nintendo is almost laughably protective of their intellectual properties, especially after the disastrous 1993 live action Super Mario Bros. movie. They’ve made Pokémon movies but, beyond that, rumors of movies based on Mario and The Legend of Zelda have been around for years. This is the vide game company’s first big move forward in a long time, and the implications are extremely significant.
The animated Super Mario Bros. film is  currently in “early development,” which doesn’t mean much. Animated films, especially ones as important as this, tend to take a long time to make, so don’t even bother to start holding your breath yet. But still... wow.

Illumination has made some really good ones. I think they could do a good job.

General Chat / Mass shooting in a church again. Texas, this time.

I'm sure better, more informative links will be available soon.

One of the absolute best quotes I've seen:

"Now these sickos are starting to shoot up churches?! This is why I always carry, in case a sicko shows their face around me and my family!"

Charleston never happened because they were black, or what?



This was disproven. I wouldn't be surprised if it went through since he undeniably hates the existence of Puerto Rico, but it has been disproven.

Trump administration forcing Puerto Rico evacuees to pay for airfare: report

The Trump administration is reportedly forcing evacuees from Puerto Rico and Dominica to sign promissory notes ensuring full repayment for transportation costs and is keeping evacuees' passports as collateral.

MarketWatch reported on Thursday that the administration is using a longstanding but discretionary policy to ensure that evacuees pay transportation costs, which are based on “the price of the last commercial one-way, full-fare (not discounted) economy ticket prior to the crisis.”

A spokesman for the State Department confirmed that the agency is overseeing Dominica's evacuation, while the Defense Department oversees Puerto Rico, a U.S. territory. According to the website, this policy applies to all evacuees who boarded U.S. government aircraft or other vehicles to evacuate. In some cases, promissory notes were waived due to immediate emergency situations, according to a spokesman.

Evacuees' passports will receive restrictions until payment is received, according to the news outlet, which cited the State Department's website.

“Upon evacuation, a Department of State official must limit an evacuee’s passport. In order to obtain a new passport, an evacuee must arrange payment as agreed upon via the promissory note," the website reads.
When those repayments can be made is a different story.

According to the State Department's website, the loans are managed "by the Comptroller and Global Financial Services office in Charleston, South Carolina," but cannot currently be repaid.

"Currently, loan repayments cannot be completed due to ongoing emergencies in the region. We will update travel.state.gov/evacuate as soon as repayments can be made," the State Department says.

The news comes as the Trump administration faces criticism for the pace of relief efforts in Puerto Rico. Most of the U.S. territory's 3.4 million inhabitants are without drinking water, and electricity could be down on the island for up to 6 months.

On Tuesday, Trump vowed that his administration would receive high marks for Hurricane Maria relief efforts.

“We’ve gotten A-pluses on Texas and in Florida, and we will also on Puerto Rico,” Trump said Tuesday. “But the difference is this is an island sitting in the middle of an ocean. It’s a big ocean, it’s a very big ocean. And we’re doing a really good job.”

Forum Rules & Announcements / New board theme in development
« on: July 03, 2017, 01:55:04 PM »
Safado is trying to make the board more mobile-friendly.

If you don't like the new/current default theme you can change it under your profile. There shouldn't be any permissions excluding you from changing it. His web developer made this and since Safado hosts the board for free, please demonstrate a little patience while this is worked out.

This thread is for constructive commentary only. Keep the spam bullshit elsewhere. You will get a total of 0 warnings for annoying me on this. Yes, it's at staff discretion, so don't try to fuck with whatever line you think exists either. Fuck off.

If you have a more appealing mobile theme you've seen for message boards, that's great! Post a link here so we have some specific ideas to submit to his developer.

General Chat / Mass shooting in San Diego last night...
« on: May 01, 2017, 10:37:14 AM »
Some dude with beer in one hand and a gun in the other attacked a pool party in La Jolla. He was targeting black people, but he also hit one Latino. Fortunately, it looks like he was a bad shot and mostly just injured the victims.

He shot 8 people, one died late last night. Shooter is dead. Some 49 year-old white dude named Peter Selis.


I actually saw people saying this wouldn't have happened if California didn't have such strict gun laws. Who the fuck brings a gun into a swimming pool and swims?

Illinois Woman Allegedly Kills Boyfriend by Pouring Bleach Down His Throat During Fight

Authorities allege a Chicago woman killed her boyfriend by pouring bleach down his throat during a fight, PEOPLE confirms.
The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said the cause of Darrius Ellis’ death was “complication of forcible administration of a caustic substance,” an agency spokesperson tells PEOPLE.
Yasmine Elder, 24, was arrested Monday and charged with murder.
She and Ellis, 26, were sitting in a van early Monday when they got into an argument, police said in a news release. Elder allegedly overpowered Ellis and poured the bleach in his mouth around 1:45 a.m.
The father of a 5-year-old son was later found lying on the ground and taken to a hospital, where the medical examiner’s office says he was pronounced dead at 3:26 a.m.
“He was a good kid,” Ellis’ maternal grandfather, Clarence Hebron, told the Chicago Tribune. “Everybody loved him.”
Police found Elder on the street where she lives and arrested her about 5:30 p.m. Monday, according to the release.
She was in court Thursday and ordered held on a $1 million bond, reports the Associated Press.
Prosecutors alleged in court that Elder pinned down her boyfriend with her knees, grabbed Ellis by the hair, and poured the bleach — some of which he swallowed — over his face.
