Just saw the new live action version. Very good. The beginning retreads stuff a bit too firmly, but it was entertaining. About halfway through they moved into some new material, and it was great. 7.5/10.

Also, best end credits of 2017.

General Chat / Subway chicken only 50% chicken

Study finds Subway's chicken only contains about 50 percent chicken DNA - Fox News

Researchers were checking chicken at various chain restaurants. McD's and other had chicken that contained 85 to 90 percent chicken DNA. The rest is filler or some DNA loss due to cleaning/prep/marinating.

Subway's "chicken" had 50% chicken DNA... or less! Appears they use soy filler heavily.

General Chat / Boeher thinks ACA will not be repealed, just amended

"This is not all that hard to figure out, except this: In the 25 years that I served in the United States Congress, Republicans never, ever one time agreed on what a healthcare proposal should look like. Not once," Boehner said.

General Chat / Trump on Russia: he will be harder on them than Hillary
« on: February 17, 2017, 07:50:16 PM »
In that crazy last-minute press conference yesterday, Trump said he wants to past his things up with Russia if possible, but that he'll be harder on them than Hillary would have been.

Letters and Jelly kept saying Hillary wanted WWIII, so I can only imagine how tough on Russia their hero will be.

General Chat / Last 24 Hours Needs Its Own Topic
« on: February 14, 2017, 08:38:11 PM »
So here is the current chain of events. This is pretty crazy:

- Yesterday, Trump says he fully trusts and supports Flynn (his selected National Security Advisor).

- Flynn then resigns. Conway says this morning he chose to resign on his own. Spicer says hours later that Trump told Flynn to resign because trust eroded. This is due to some sort of Russian tie or communication, of which he either lied or "forgot to tell" the White House.

- The GOP has come out to say that the bipartisan intelligence committee will now be investigating Trump-Russia ties revolving around the Flynn issue. They will call Flynn for questioning.

- Government Ethics Office now wants to investigate Conway for pitching Ivanka's product line.

- The Secret Service Director just resigned today. Says being done for personal reasons.

- Russia has a spy ship cruising about 70 miles off the US east coast. They do this every few years, but the timing is obviously intentional with the Flynn issue.

- Russia jets have also buzzed a US naval ship a few times in the Black Sea. And Russia launched a cruise missile test that potentially violates a treaty with the US.

General Chat / Deportation of illegals on the uprise

Trump Administration Begins Deportation Raids Across the U.S. - The Wall Street Journal

Focused on caching criminal elements, but if they come across other non-violent illegals during a raid, they grab them too.

Sounds good to me. My big question is whether Trump will expand this and grab up the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants working in agriculture.

Outside of the first full trailer, I have avoided a lot of the promo material. But this MTV Cribs bit is pretty good: http://io9.gizmodo.com/the-lego-batman-movies-bruce-wayne-is-incapable-of-keep-1791935149

Anyone else seeing this? I think it could make insane bank if word of mouth is good.

General Chat / Sanders vs Cruz healthcare debate Tuesday
« on: February 03, 2017, 12:30:30 PM »
CNN will have Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders in a debate style format to discuss healthcare reforms in America. Considering there is no election on the line, this should be interesting.

A Billionaire Resistance Targets President Trump from the Right - TIME

Bunch of rich CEOs in the GOP got together to sip wine, eat cheese, and discuss using their $400 million... I mean, "free speech" to sway members of Congress to block some of Trump's proposals.

I wonder if there a rich Texas oil barron in a cowboy hat during a pistol to punctuate his statements.
