ICT / Re: A Saltwater Crocodile VS A Walrus
« on: September 15, 2017, 06:05:40 AM »
However, I disagree
about the bite not having much impact. Saltwater Crocs have the most powerful bite
in the animal kingdom, and if walrus can get killed by Polar Bears, a very large Saltwater
Croc is going to do a number to it. It won't kill it in one bite, but the damage will be
quite significant.

Bears kill them by essentially slicing through the protective blubber with teeth and claws designed for cutting and shredding meat though (and even then a successful bear-on-walrus predation is exceptionally rare).

Croc teeth are designed for grabbing and holding only, and the teeth aren't long enough to penetrate the blubber and hit the meat. Crocs have insane bite force, but they are designed for gripping prey animals with fundamentally different body shapes than a walrus. Even the biggest salties would struggle to get a solid grip on a walrus, and they aren't going to be breaking legs etc like they would normally do with "normal" prey animals.

Maybe if they grabbed a flipper and tore it off or something, but I can't really picture even a big saltie getting a good hold on a walrus neck or body. Just too... round, for lack of a better word, and well-protected against all the typical croc tactics.

I don't think the bite-and-hold technique would be very effective at all against a walrus. It's shape makes it difficult to get a meaningful grip on regardless of bite force, and the croc's teeth aren't likely to cause any real damage because of the layer of blubber. Too big and too strong to drag out and drown (and the walrus can hold its breath for a long time anyway, aside from being a powerful swimmer once in the water). Crocs aren't built for long drawn-out battles and tire relatively quickly. Just a bad match-up for the croc I think.

Larry Silverstein bought terrorist insurance weeks before the attack and profited 5 billion. Hes a Zionist Jew. Weeks before he also allowed access to agroup of Isreali art students unfettered access to the towers for an art project. They were Mossad agents.

This one has been repeatedly debunked by common sense analysis. It is typical of 9/11 "truthers" to try and paint an insurance agreement including (but not limited to) a terrorist attack - for a building that had already been the subject of a terrorist plot - as unusual.



Uber Cable made Deadpool's head explode a couple of times, but I always assumed that was TK rather than TP.


Chris Claremont oc

Claremont recaps everything the reader needs to know like every issue. It's probably the one benefit to his lengthy expository style.

You don't need to know anything previously to jump on with Claremont. But you also probably need to have an appreciation for old school comic storytelling (which as you note is often extremely wordy and expository). Anyone who already likes comics will almost certainly enjoy Claremont's X-Men run, but someone who has never picked up a comic in their life might be put right the fuck off by 1970s/80s style dialogue/narration IMHO.

Honestly if I was introducing a complete comic virgin to a character I would probably be reluctant to give them anything older than a decade or two, at least initially. Even if the story quality isn't as good in the newer stuff.

Iceman confirned more powerful than Thor's godblast and stopped Juggernaut.

Seriously what the fuck was that.

He actually says immediately before that he can't stop the Juggernaut directly. It reads to me like it's supposed to be some kind of "clever" workaround where Bobby targets the atmosphere surrounding Juggy rather than Juggy himself, but it's so poorly constructed that it just doesn't make any sense.


Marvel Zombies / Ennis & Parlov new Punisher MAX mini series
« on: September 01, 2017, 02:58:49 PM »
Prequel to BORN, 6-issue mini in full-blown MAX format. Was announced like two years ago so I was assuming it was never happening, but just saw the trade listed as a future release on Amazon so googled and the first two issues are due out in October.


Yes. Fucking. Please.

About as expected. Floyd took 2 rounds to suss him out and then fucked him up with ease.

Based on that performance I reckon McGregor is maaaaaaybe European title level, nowhere near world belt competitive. If he wants a boxing career he needs to sort his cardio out, gassing after three rounds is not going to work.

Yeah that's next level though if it's true, boxers are usually like 10lbs heavier than the weigh in, 17lbs is nuts. Well over 10% of his body weight at weigh in time, crazy.

I did a white collar boxing fight once and weighed in two days before the fight, ate like an absolute trooper afterwards and only put on like a pound and a half. God knows how horrific it must feel dehydrating to that extent, surprised they can even walk on to the scales.

Actually to be fair on the replay not sure how much difference it made,  Fonseca was quitting either way.

Anyone else notice Conor's awkward semi during the weigh-in? Fucking Irish pikeys, can't take 'em anywhere.

WTF was that  ;D clearly a foul punch after he had taken a knee. Awful officiating.

I do sort of want McGregor to win because I love an underdog, not sure boxing would ever recover though.

McGregor looks like a different person compared to the weigh-in, his prediction of being near 170lbs might not be far off. Absolutely mental weight cut if so, he must just sit in a sauna for a few days before the fight to get that dehydrated. Can't be healthy.

Love how completely empty the arena has been until this fight, clearly all the Irish having trouble finding their way out of the bars. Can only imagine the carnage afterwards.

He'll miss out on approx $27 million if he does that! Think he'd rather take the beating. Thing of all the driveways he won't have to do with $27 million, the Irish fuck.

Who's watching it then?

Bit of a farce in all likelihood but the build up has been fun. Can't see anything other than a Floyd schooling, and as I'm a boxing man I hope he does. This song is making me want to swap allegiances though:

Either way I'd fucking love to be in Vegas tonight, seen some videos of the Paddies hitting the strip and it looks mental, going to be a lot of Guinness consumed this eve.

The lack of heartbeat and breathing would throw Matt off his game too. He overcame similar against the Hand ninjas in season 2 but it's another factor to consider.

Worth pointing out that pre- and even early-solo series Angel seemed pretty shit at fighting, wasn't until the later series (presumably due to advances in budget/SFX and much, much better choreography - actually I think the lead showrunner from Daredevil did quite a few episodes of Angel roundabouts season 4 when the action stepped up a gear) that Angel's strength and speed were played up a lot more.
