I got tired of reporting the posts - I did send him a *really* friendly PM though. What a world-class jagoff.

I only reported one. I had a feeling that was plenty.

Probably should have been something like 100 posts AND was a member as of a certain date prior to the giveaway being announced. This turd joined today so he wouldn't qualify.

That would definitely help.

I do hope that this doesn't discourage future contests, though...

So much work, it's painful to watch, but he's more than doubled his count since I started watching this unfold.

Don't be dangling this in the face of kids who saw Star Wars in the original run at age 13 (in 1977 there were no episode numbers or titles, it was just bloody "Star Wars") and not follow through given what The Neckbeard has done to them since then. If anyone can get it done, it'll be The Mouse. If they do it, and do it well, I might have to take back some untoward statements.

Why do dill pickle flavored potato chips contain whey powder as an ingredient?

Whey is also used in the production of regular dill pickles, and other vegetable fermentation. I couldn't tell you why though.

Probably to help the flavouring stick to the chip & so they can put a number in the protein section of the nutrition information.

Those "crew rest" bunks look pretty swanky, especially given the space they're squeezed into above the main cabin.

Swanky, as long as you have no claustrophobia issues of course. Great privacy too.

Not quite an etihad residence though. I don't know how the flight crew manages without a butler.

Another week out in the hotel in the far SE corner of VT. The only good point this week is that the NH liquor stores have a handle of Dewar's on sale for $29.99

Tomorrow's dinner will be a large pepperoni grinder (12" sub roll, sauce, about 1 lb of pizza pepperoni, a pile of mozz, and run it through the oven) from my favorite Greek-run pizza place in Brattleboro, VT.

Can anyone explain how the US pizza business, at least in the rural areas, became dominated by the Greeks instead of the Italians?

In the Chicago area I'd say a pretty large percentage of restaurants in general (Asian food excluded) are Greek-owned.

RIP Jaws.

Richard Kiel died today. Let's hope that he got it on with his nerdy blonde GF on Drax's space station while retrieving the Golden Jacket from Shooter McGavin. I'll forget that he brought along the cookbook "To Serve Man".

I don't dispute that some people may be allergic to MSG; pick practically anything that people eat or drink, and someone somewhere will be allergic to it. But in the case of MSG, it is almost certainly a very small percentage. It isn't present in just Chinese/Asian food; a quite large percentage of processed food contains it too. And y'know what? It just makes food taste better. FWIW I don't go out of my way to avoid it, but we also do not keep a shaker of it next to the salt like we did at home when I was a kid!

One of my neighbors is allergic to It. I am talking in bed sick the next day if she eats it. It took her years to figure out what was causing it but once she cut out all MSG her problems vanished. A lot of bottled salad dressing flavors have it in them.

That sucks, given its ubiquity. On a related note, I know someone who is allergic to corn (a pretty rare sensitivity, apparently). Given how commonly corn oil and corn syrup are used in the food and beverage industry, it is probably about as hard to avoid as MSG.

I am sick of origin stories. Tired of them. In fact I wish MEU and DC would stop with them. Yes there are a few cases where an Origin story needs to be told, e.g. Guardians of the Galaxy. But dang it to hell how many rehashes do we need on Batman?

We do not need Origin stories on : Batman, Superman, Spiderman, X-men, Wolverine, Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, Green lantern, Flash, Wonder Woman, Captain America, TMNT, Daredevil, G.I. Joe, etc, etc, etc. If you don't know the Origin of these then go look at wikipedia or any DC/Marvel online encyclopedia.

And while I am on my box.....Please STOP with the time travel. It does not make a story/move/tv show any more interesting.

Quick question: is Gotham any good?

But I do agree that we don't need origins for some-several super heroes. Batman, Superman, and Spider-Man are 100% known...we don't ever need to see their origins in film ever again. Several super heroes could probably use an explanation for why they're here doing what they're doing (like Wonder Woman and Thor), but that isn't really an "origins" story. If you must show an origin, try something a little more clever. Tim Burton's Batman did this nicely. Batman had already been established in Gotham, and they only referenced his origins in flashbacks.

I think you could make a case for putting some origins on film, if general audiences aren't that familiar with them (or if there are multiple versions of the same character). I still want these origins to be done well, though (and we don't have to start at the very beginning).
On second thought, let's not go to TechReport. Tis a silly place.

Is Gotham good. Well that's the million dollar question. It's Ok as in its not bad. In terms of Agents of Shield, Its not as hokey as AoS started off as. AoS got better as the season wore on.

But lets be truthful about Gotham. Its on Fox. It might last 1 season or 2-3. But will it last 7-10 seasons? Probably not. In fact my money is on that it lasts only one.

For a pilot, it wasn't bad. It felt a little bit forced and disjointed from time-to-time, but other than that I enjoyed it and I'm definitely looking forward to more.

Sounds about right...I haven't had a chance to watch Agents of Shield either, but overall it sounds like it's worth watching.

EDIT: I normally don't watch TV, and the few shows I do watch (like Doctor Who) are always after the initial air date (usually when they show up on Amazon/Netflix). The same was true of The Blacklist, which I picked up a couple weeks ago...then I missed the first episode of Season 2 :lol:

Still, looking forward to catching up on that.
