  1. Disney buys Fox confirmed.

    There's a distinction between "friend" and "sugar daddy".
  2. Nintendo Switch

    I'm disappointed there doesn't appear to be a Wii-style controller for the Switch. After the Wii was such a jump forward in video game ergonomics it's annoying to see Nintendo going backwards.
  3. Disney buys Fox confirmed.

    So the one big upside to this news might not even happen? Great.
  4. So, How's It Going?

    Let him hire bigger kids to fight the bullies?
  5. YOUR Riverdale Sleaze Thread

    Sure. But whatever label they slapped on him in the new comics, for decades one of Jughead's defining character traits has been that he doesn't date girls. The exact reasons why he doesn't date vary considerable form story to story (if they're addressed at all), of course. But jettisoning that aspect of his character without even a nod to it is jarring.
  6. YOUR WI-FI IS FUCKED

    Bumping this thread to say that my Samsung phone finally got a security update a couple of days ago, but when I checked the security patch level afterwards, it read Nov 1. Apparently it's the Nov 6 patch that fixes Krack. (And it seems even Nexi and Pixels didn't get that until December.) My Samsung tablet still has a security patch level of Aug 1. Anybody know of a manufacturer who actually pushed out the Nov 6 patch in reasonable time? Might affect my next purchase.
  7. What is on your Xmas viewing list?

    The Muppets Christmas Carol, usually multiple times.
  8. DECEMBER 2017 WRESTLING PHOTOS THREAD

    I don't know why such a random non sequitur had me giggling uncontrollably, but here we are.
  9. DECEMBER 2017 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    I could get behind that if the problem SorceressKnight was describing were unique to WWE. But I don't think it is. Season one of Lucha Underground had the live crowd rabidly cheering Pentagon Jr. I'd be surprised if the same sort of thing didn't go on in Japan or the indies too.
  10. DC Comics omnibus thread

    I vaguely remember Dark Knight, Dark City. I had no idea it was highly acclaimed. Seemed alright.
  11. YOUR Riverdale Sleaze Thread

    It worked for the comics because when your stories mostly centre around teen relationship drama, having a character who doesn't get involved in that at all makes him distinctive. It helps his status as sardonic observer of the emotional chaos around him if he doesn't participate in said chaos. I don't see anything dumb about that. They did do a good job on the hat.
  12. YOUR Riverdale Sleaze Thread

    Midway through season one, and I have to say I don't approve of this Betty/Jughead nonsense. Not being interested in girls is Jughead's primary defining character trait.

    You're ignoring the possibility of loops in the elimination graph. It's not uncommon for people to eliminate themselves. Or to be eliminated by somebody who's not in the match.
  14. NOV 2017 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    Surely there must be a Smackdown PPV missing between Battleground and Summerslam?
  15. NOV 2017 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    It was all about Herb's Wrestling Tidbits.
