General Chat / Holiday Family Fun
« on: December 23, 2017, 02:58:35 PM »
So the Christmas holiday is upon us. Anyone have any crazy family in town? Or going out to visit any? Have any crazy left-wing or right-wing or Illuminati-wing relatives to verbally spar with?

If any of you recall stories of my brother-in-law, he and his family are staying with us for the holidays this year. He has gotten mildly better at controlling his sons, but it’s still a lot of them throwing and trashing shit, his wife trying to do something about, but she’s mostly unable due to years of him undermining her authority and not taking any action to control the kids. He also passed the buck to me when my wife and her sister left to run errands. So I give the kids hard “no” answers when they try to grab shit they shouldn’t of try to eat 90 snacks on my floor... and then listen to them whine to him in the other room about me.

My oldest daughter did make me laugh though. My wife was decorating cookies with the kids, and naturally his kids were being messy. No big deal because some messiness is to be expected. My wife did have chastise their oldest when he started licking his fingers and touching the cookies. Brother-in-Law was his kid was a little upset by being told “no” and said, “It’s ok. Sometimes it’s hard to remember all the rules.”

To which my daughter flatly replied, “No it isn’t.” It was a proud moment to see my first grade daughter call out a full grown man’s weak parenting.

FOX owning distribution rights to ANH has been rumored as a major block to getting the original unedited trilogy released. That is now good and done! Disney will no doubt get this shit released on Blu-ray and 4K... and rake in billions.

ICT / DCCU Kryptonians vs Doomsday

Zod, Faora, and Namek vs Doomsday. Who wins?

ICT / DCCU Superman vs. DCCU Greek gods
« on: November 20, 2017, 11:22:40 PM »
Supes alone seemed capable of defeating Steppenwolf and his parademons. But the Greek Gods needed an alliance with several armies and a GL to do the same.

So was Ares still weakened by Zeus’ attack by the time he fights in WW? Or were the Greek gods basically MCU Thor level?

ICT / MCU godlings vs. ???

MCU Hela, Giant Surtur, and Ego team up. Who is the weakest comic character that could defeat them?

ICT / MCU Thor vs Hulk
« on: November 05, 2017, 08:39:53 AM »
So we now have a Hulk with years of experience and some smarts fighting against Thor who has unlocked his lightning powers. A lightning amped uppercut had Hulk seriously stunned, but he was able to get back up and seemed ready to fight more.

Can Thor now overwhelm Hulk? Or will Hulk just keep getting back up until he finally wears Thor down?

ICT / Fire Nation vs. Mordor
« on: October 23, 2017, 10:28:36 PM »
The entire Fire Nation island with all of its resources pops into existence a few miles off the shores of Middle Earth in the south nearer to Mordor. Firelord Ozai decides to crush Mordor and its allies.

Magic godly bullshits and tricks creates an impenetrable barrier that prevents the Fire Nation and Mordor from interacting with the men, elves, and dwarfs of the north.

Does the Fire Nation have a chance? If not, what if Sozin’s comet will come in thirty days (and Ozai knows this)?

ICT / Disney heroes vs. Chitauri
« on: October 16, 2017, 09:08:21 AM »
Disney Hercules, Peter Pan, Mulan, Merida, Aladin (with Carpet), Maui, and Prince Phillip (with enchanted sword and shield) get a week to train together and know each other.

They then replace the Avengers for the Chitauri invasion. How do they do?

General Chat / Removing Confederate Monuments
« on: August 16, 2017, 07:39:14 AM »
The idea of removing monuments being erasing or revising history has come up in topic about the white nationalist protest violence, and it has come up in the news lately. I've heard it discussed among friends and family too. Here are a few points I wanted to make for its own topic:

1) Enemies and traitors of a nation typically do not get monuments. Exhibits in museums? Sure, that's normal depending on how well known they were. Excerpts in history books (both in schools and for sale to the public)? Absolutely. Bookstores are loaded with books about terrorists, wars, and enemy states... usually WWII and Civil War in US bookstores due to popularity.

But monuments? No. Iraq doesn't keep Saddam Hussein statues in public. Germany does keep Hitler monuments in public. I'm sure Germany also isn't big on Stalin statues. You don't glorify your enemies, and monuments are intended to glorify generally. We don't need to build an Osama bin Laden statue near Freedom Plaza (or anywhere in the US) to remember an enemy of the state. That's absolute bullshit nonsense.

2) The Confederate monuments were historical revisionism. Way after those traitors were defeated, the southern states started to attempt revising history as a "fuck you" to the Civil Rights movement by glorifying traitors who fought to maintain slavery. Those southern states also started to revive use of the confederate battle flag, adding it to their state flags while they renamed streets after famous confederate traitors.

This was revising a history of treason, slavery, and racism into "southern pride" or "heritage". It wasn't remembering the past; it was an attempt to rewrite history in the most favorable light to traitors who went to war to break this nation apart. And it was done primarily as backlash against the efforts to promote civil liberties for black Americans.

Fixing that revisionism is NOT itself revisionism. It is a return to a more accurate historical depiction of events where confederate traitors are not glorified like heroes.

3) Pulling down traitor monuments is not a slippery slope to pulling down every monument that has ever existed across the world for all of time. I don't recall outrage when news showed Iraqi citizens yanking down Saddam's statue.

Deciding who gets/deserves a MONUMENT is something to decide based on popularity and glory-worthy achievement. Confederate monuments went up for shit reasons and are now being removed for historical accuracy.

Is this a bad sign? The movie opens in two days, and I can't find reviews.

It is possible we'll get the "Thanos kills all the heroes" scene, which yeah... those guys will be alive by the end. But these movies also serve as a good way to write out Chris Evans and RDJ, who have said they are done after these next two films.

So do you think Cap and Stark die? My thought is Stark might live but call it quits, passing the torch to the newer heroes. Then you can still get cameos in the future films, even if RDJ never headlines another Marvel movie. Cap I feel is dead. That's not a character that just fades away.

I think Hawkeye can be written off as doing full retirement after this event. Same for BW if Scarlet doesn't want to come back.

Thor may just leave Earth to rule in Asgard (depending on how Ragnorak ends).
