Ironically it was Austin Powers that caused the Craig reboot of the Bond series. They felt they were not serious enough and that Austin Powers highlighted that to parody levels.

Also know as "no fun allowed".

Faile: Cher at age 19

Fucking lol with how the main comments regarding Faile's appearance are her nose.

So glad those books are actually finished so any adaptations can just be ignored. Even the Billy Zane retainment flick was shit although that's not surprising since it was literally the prologue to the first book with Billy Zane as Ishamael and whoever as Lews Therin Telamon as The Dragon wandered around the bodies of his kin. I don't expect the "actual" show to be any better. Nor will I afford it the bandwidth on the high sees.

And the shelves get filled with items that aren't typical for the region/time of year

This is what I've seen a few times recently while shopping. Technically the shelves weren't empty, however seeing excess multipacks of confectionery in the fresh produce areas that were previously fridges is telling that the spots where fresh produce are missing are being filled with whatever is around.

Whether this is being done to hide a lack or products or taking advantage of the space, or both, it's still disguising the fact for many npcs who look at "full" shelves and don't see the forest for the trees.

The idea that they can coast off a single 10 year old game without the weight of their failures (evolve) is some kinda skill...

But enough about Valve and Half Life, kek 🙃

Previously human mortality meant we were probably dead by 30/40 so marrying and having kids very young made sense then when you also had a dozen children because half of them would die to polio and the other half would just be horribly disfigured. By polio.

Also the fuck is up with this whole comment chain? Every post has -12 somehow according to my screen yet the totals points for many posts aren't in the negatives. 🤔

Andre Braugher

His rant in the box episode "The Box" from season 5 is forever my favourite b99 moment.

I've never resonated with a TV show character so much.

Yea Rookie derailed hard from being a show about Nathan Fillion characte

Dropped that hard the episode they added in Nolan's new superior who when she appeared did the following:

  1. Took out an automatic rifle just for the sake of it then used it til it went click against some random gang members. One of the few critical comments about that part I remember reading was the rifle in question isn't even fully automatic irl or something.

  2. Broke custody arrangements by showing up to her daughter's school which the father noticed and called her out on having previously had to raise the daughter by himself because the mother went full undercover cop and abandoned her family but now she feels bad and wants them back in her life on her own terms all the while ignoring how it must have felt for the father and daughter during that time.

  3. In addition to the above went full "stronk woman" with every line she had, bitched about everything Nolan did or said, and in general have a perfect display of someone who should never be a cop let alone the superior to anyone.

Reading the rest of what has happened since then I see I've missed absolutely fuck all so nothing lost quitting that when I did 🤡

L4D2 is one of those weird sequels which effectively entirely replaces its predecessor since the L4D maps were and campaign were ported over. The addition of melee weapons, more special infected, and new maps ["non linear" ones at that like with the run through the sugar mill then back again to the start during a hurricane] were a nice upgrade, however the PCs that were added in 2 always felt boring and somehow even more caricatured than 1 which had used the "grizzled biker", "old army vet", "working black man", and "girl" archetypes.

Stereotypical as they might have been, Francis, Bill, Louis, and Zoey were at least slightly interesting and fun to play as.

Coach was never going to be the kind of person to survive a zombie apocalypse with that gut he had regardless of the immunity all the players had. Nick would sell out the rest of the group if it meant saving his own skin, or if he could make some money off it. Ellis was just fucking dumb and beyond his suggestion to use the Jimmy Gibbs Jr. racing car to escape the first L4D2 campaign, nothing he ever had said was helpful. Rochelle was similar but managed to not only be just as useless as Ellis, but also less interesting than Zoey who would be her counterpart as "The chick" of the group.

Given the options between picking which groups I'd rather be with in the event of a real zombie apocalypse that order goes:

  1. L4D1 survivors

  2. The zombies

  3. Dead

  4. L4D2 survivors

Don't worry, it's something that only happens under certain situations.

Like the day ending in a "Y".

Needs to be "ya'll" just so the contraction is spelled wrong. Likewise having the word "loose" in there for when the family is talking about the person they have just lost.

One of the sitewide rules was to follow the "Pyramid of Debate",

Which the site owner ignored and then called people names when pissy about being criticised about some things.

Simplest way to lose faith in any rule is so watch the person instituting it break said rule.

Treat others as you would like to be treated

So giving no quarter in pvp and mercilessly destroying entire opposing teams if/when able?

Because I've done that in MMOs before and it was some of the best and most exhilarating gameplay I've ever had with others.

But Kirk beat that by cheating

The novel of the original timeline had such a better solution for Kirk solving that. He was that sure of how awesome he's be he reprogrammed the test to reflect how infamous he'd be in the future and solved the unsolvable test by hailing the attacking ships and going "I'm Kirk, gtfo!"

WoW has been changed for years in China at this point. No skeletons upon rez, instead you get gravestones. No bones showing on undead, elbows and knees instead edited to be more covered, etc.

This will however affect all the dumbfuck changes various woke devs are pushing into the game right now that is doing nothing but pissing off the remaining player base.

Expected this was going to be all the gingers that were in the story.
