Got this from over at KMC:

Bucky's metal arm:



Klaue's sonic-canon arm:



Phil Coulson's SHIELD robo hand:



Bucky's arm is the strongest and most durable.
Klaus's has the most destructive power.
Coulson's hand has the most gadgets.

Going on record as choosing Coulson's. I know i'll be in the minority, but i really want that shield.

Magic is bullshit. It should really be done away with completely. Science is what rules the land.

I forgot.  Seems there's was a cop present and he stood outside while the shooting happened for 4 minutes to 6 minutes.
I do understand the argument that his training might've warranted him to wait for back up...but if the Armed School Resource Officer couldn't do his job to protect, it's an even scarier notion to arm the teachers.

I don't expect an Aussie to know this ;) but apparently the main thing to do for an armed responder to do in a situation like this  is to get on scene as quickly as possible. These school shooters aren't trained soldiers or terrorists, they're mentally ill basket cases, and the majority of the time they will flee as soon as they see any armed response, and/or kill themselves. I'm not pulling this out of my ass, I read it from a police statement or something after one of the other shootings recently.


You're absolutely right.
An Aussie wouldn't know these "facts".
The average Aussie would be appalled by the notion, by the need to have an Armed School Resource Officer in an environment full of children. Much less the notion of teachers carrying concealed firearms.
The average Aussie would shake their heads in disbelief at kevlar back packs for school children, much less desks that fold into protective shields to hide behind.
You have a serious gun problem but instead of fixing the issue, you endorse it.

We're honestly confused by your die hard beliefs that guns are a necessary part of every day life even when it's so blatant that it does more harm than good.
Idiots are actually arguing that purchasing a gun is the cheaper option for home security than installing bars & alarm systems...that other people's lives killed is a small price to pay than having your personal insurance premiums increase.

Under that particular writer (Steve Englehart) it was. Some other writers have followed it but it's mostly vague now to what exactly power cosmic is.

Englehart didn't have him weakened by regular blasts though.

Surfer regained his powers drained by sonic shark off panel as per his bio.

"His powers were diminished though they gradually returned to their original levels."

He wasn't depowered in SS v3 1. He just had to get above ozone layer to absorb cosmic rays.

So Outer Space is to Surfer as Sunlight is to Superman.

Presumably extreme use of power (extraneous energy blasts?) weakens him to some extent...?

Hal's ring is so powerful that it's power needs to be redirected or it could destroy Mogo (GLC HQ) by accident.

Saying "I hear you" isn't weeping on TV. It's a normal human response. It's like someone not knowing "sorry for your loss" is a thing I people say at funerals.

And writing "I hear you" on a note card of talking points is not a sign of psychopathy, or an indicator that the owner of said card is an emotionless robot. It's the kind of line you use to redirect a conversation. This was an unusual, awkward situation, to say it mildly. And Trump is not the most natural public speaker when it comes to unscripted exchanges, by any stretch of the imagination. He's pretty bad at it. But that isn't an emotionless psychopath. Have you never seen people put a foot in their mouth at a funeral, or on a similar occasion? No, Obama wouldn't have needed a card. Neither would Reagan, or Bill Clinton. Clinton may have tried to bang the widow, though.

God damn, dude, criticizing Trump for nonsense is as silly as blindly praising him. This is like that kerfuffle a few months ago when he supposedly dumped a whole box of fish food into a koi pond while in Japan is a display of boorish behavior... until it turned out that, hey, he was just following the lead of the Japanese PM, a fact that was conveniently left out.

I forgot.  Seems there's was a cop present and he stood outside while the shooting happened for 4 minutes to 6 minutes.
I do understand the argument that his training might've warranted him to wait for back up...but if the Armed School Resource Officer couldn't do his job to protect, it's an even scarier notion to arm the teachers.

I wonder if it said, "Please turn over." on the back of the note cards?

Was that sympathy on his face or just a deep confusion of where his words went?

Even better, if he turned around in a circle after reading it.

Having mulled it over, I reckon this environment favours Jaws more than Bourne.

Agree to disagree.

I -did- like the Youtube link, with Jaws biting that tray Bond hit him in the gut with, for ABSOLOUTELY NO REASON! :P

So in the most Arrested Development moment of this administration, Trump had to write "I hear you" on his note card to remember to show sympathy towards the Florida victims.

I wonder if it said, "Please turn over." on the back of the note cards?

Was that sympathy on his face or just a deep confusion of where his words went?
