Replace Thing with Iron Man and the team is winning.

Thing is just useless. He's such a liability. He's slow and limited in abilities.


    He may not be the fighter with the quickest footwork, but Ben Grimm, has always proven (especially against the Champion) that he will never quit.  No matter how powerful the opponent he, much like Captain America (Both are Jack Kirby characters) will never accept defeat.
Unless there's a cab nearby he can hop in and get the fuck out of dodge.

General Chat / Re: Doctor calls SWAT team on children’s parents

Also, the whole process to remove parental rights is long and arduous. Differs from state-to-state, but you can bank on a year or more before that happens, and that ONLY happens if there is a permanent plan, like adoption, in place. There are a lot of hearings and a lot of visits and a case plan managed by a team of people (doctors, lawyers, judges, social workers, the parents, family etc) before it comes to that. It's rare that parental rights are removed any quicker than that, like both parents going to prison for more than 6 months or both parents dying, and again the rights are only removed so that the child(ren) can then be legally adopted.

Just thought I'd chime in and dispel a bit of the "baby snatcher" fear mongering.

If the cops were called 1st by the doctor, THEY called CPS because the situation involved children that would HAVE to be detained if both parents were being arrested or there was sufficient immediate potential harm. CPS would then come out to the scene and assess the situation for safety concerns, and then they would only detain the child(ren) if necessary. If possible, an extended family member or responsible adult in the family (an adult sibling, for example) present could have the child(ren) surrendered to him/her at the scene, or he/she would be contacted in the hopes of doing an emergency family placement. This practice was put in place to better serve the families of detained children, but often the family member in question can't pass the background check or doesn't follow through with a small bit of paperwork (and I do mean only a little bit), or their home inspection comes up unsafe. Or, the family just doesn't want to deal with it, in which case a licensed foster home is contacted and used for placement, however long it may be. Depending upon how things shake out, the emergency placement could last a few days, or a few weeks. The latter only happens if the case becomes a full-on CPS case, requiring quite a bit of legal checks and balances (CPS would have to demonstrate to a judge sufficient reason, generally). There's quite a bit more that happens after that, like the parent(s) working a case plan to demonstrate a Changed Situation, leading to reunification, but every situation or reason for detainment is different. Unsecured weapons in the home are an immediate, actionable reason due to the massive potential for harm they represent and it sounds like Arizona isn't doing itself any favors with the whole "we're rebel cowboys, pew pew" thing.

If the doc called CPS 1st, a worker has to respond and do a wellness check within 10 days (emergency response workers are great at weeding out bullshit calls; trust me on this). A social worker will make contact, visit the home or children in school (depends on what was reported) and go from there. Detainment is not a knee-jerk thing; there HAS to be demonstrable and thusly documented concern, which 90% falls under neglect (ex: no food in the home, child comes to school wearing the same dirty clothing several days in a row, things like that). If the CPS worker feels he/she needs police back up to mitigate the removal process, they'll be called to ensure everyone's safety.

Children can't just be removed from a home willy-nilly. There are a great number of laws and codes of conduct a CPS worker has to abide by, but if a case is opened for a family, it becomes a different situation entirely. The laws for social work are virtually the same, state-to-state, but not all counties are run as well as they could be. I will say from first-hand experience, both from working with children for nearly 20 years, having a therapeutic foster home license for about 15 years and my wife being an actual social worker for over a decade, the people that have had a "bad experience" with CPS are, generally, the people whom absolutely should not have children in any way, shape or form under their roof. Are there bad parents? Sure...but "bad" parents don't have CPS cases opened up and lose their parental rights to their children, the AWFUL, HORRIBLE, ABUSIVE parents do, and they talk the most shit while doing the least amount of work possible (if any) to reunify with their children.

that's not really sad though


Not like Prop's example, which IS sad, but only because all the ladies involved in that deserve better
He says tearjerkers, though, so does it mean sad, or emotionally charged?

It was the first wrestling-anything that I’ve watched in years and I enjoyed it. The only thing I can say that was a real negative was that it went on a little too long. I don’t know what you could have cut from it, though; all of the belts were defended (as they should be at WM); the “grudge” matches were settled (enough, for now); it was well paced in terms if segments/moments versus matches; and each match was surprisingly good. Really, the worst matches of the night IMO were Corbin/Angle and Lashley/Balor, with each being at least a 3* affair.

Corbin/Angle suffered from Angle CLEARLY barely able to move and just not up to the Angle standard, and the fact that it was Corbin. He’s big, he can move and he has a pretty cool finisher, but his gimmick is weak (the outfit is WHACK) and his connection with the fans isn’t there. I don’t think Cena in that spot would have been better, necessarily. A better match, yes, because John is a better worker and it would have been a nice call-back to his leap into the upper echelon way-back-when (the Ruthless Aggression slap), but John doesn’t need the rub and Cena haters would have still bitched...unless he’d come out as Thuggin’ Cena. THAT would have gone over huge for Angle’s last match, but also over shadowed Angle’s last hurrah. Corbin worked; not perfect as far as prestige goes, but Angle pulled out all of his moves and Corbin kept him safe.

ICT / Re: Samus VS Alucard
« on: March 04, 2019, 03:26:32 AM »
SotN Alucard has access to a shit ton of magic items and weapons that Samus would have trouble with. Alucard's Sword allows him to perform teleport strikes that, when timed properly (in gameplay), renders him unhittable while dealing a lot of damage. His Poison Cloud form renders him invulnerable and capable of dealing damage, as well. Alucard can also cast several spells (like Blood Magic? Forget the name) that he doesn't need to aim, just cast, that will damage Samus. Gameplay-wise, double arming Alucard with Crissaegrim (rare, but I've done it) and alternating attack buttons turns you into a moving, whirling cloud of death. Alucard's familiars would also prove to be a nuisance, distracting Samus left and right.

Samus might have "superior technology", but that doesn't dictate an auto win, particularly when magic doens't give a fuck about any of that, allowing Alucard to hit from anywhere without any real defense or reprisal from Samus.
two crissaegrams is the peak of redundancy. You're going to be a whirlwind of death regardless, and only as fast as you can press one button anyways

But I do like to see a pro Alucard comment
I recall it being slightly faster by pianoing your attack buttons (square and circle, iirc), rather than pressing a single one over and over. When I did it, there was a noticeable difference. Had to hold my hand in a weird claw position so I could jump, but I made it work.

Of course, this was 20+ years ago, so I my memory could be off a smidge.

In any event, Alucard would fucking wreck Samus.

1) Russo wins IMO. Pilgrim was a capable shot but not on the level of Frank and Billy. I see Russo taking that more often than not.

2) I think Pilgrim would surprise Russo while he looked down and out, doing enough damage to take the lead and win the fight in a hand to hand battle.

Sonny could take all of The Defenders on his own, let alone Daredevil by himself.

Balrog would beat the absolute shit out of Johnny Cage, 8-9/10. The win or two Cage gets is when his "ancient pantheon" DNA or whatever the fuck manifests and allows him to Mary-Sue his way through to a win.

DocFallout22, although the chances of you playing an actual game with ME are slim, since my kids use it far more than I do (re: once since we bought it). Be fun to listen to you suffer through a game of Fortnite with them, though LOL. "OMG...he's hax! You're trash, bro!"
