Is it too much to ask that Michelle Rodriguez plays a kick-ass character who survives the feature?

First thing I've pre-ordered since Dark Souls 2.
We are doing the paperwork to buy a fantastic house that is straining our cash flow, so I will be waiting until it goes on sale.  But oooh boy do I want to hear how awesome it is.

...I think I found the problem with US Education.  Colleges can afford Pro-Sports Stadiums.
I wouldn't call it the problem, but it certainly is a significant one.

(FWIW I think one huge problem is the proliferation of "education" employees who don't teach.)

I've been really enjoying Doctor Doom in Avengers Assemble, and am really good with Reed Richards ending up a villain.  The Fantastic Four have never been a heroic band I've liked.

Doctor Doom is one of Marvels best antagonists, and a nice funhouse mirror image of Iron Man.

It only took me a couple weeks to sort out emails, Good Old Games, and Kickstarter, (all of it being my fault) and got Wasteland 2 downloaded and installed.  I haven't done much of anything yet, but so far I like it.  It seems like the engine could do a lot of things very very well.

+1. It seems like anyplace with no good sightlines is the wrong place to be in case of Zombie, and forests seem like a classic example. Castles could get really useful again, though.
Castles would be very handy, but the advantage of the Adirondacks is the rough terrain that will generally prevent hordes from reaching unmanageable size.

The Adirondacks are a good zombie haven, especially if the plague hits outside of the two months of summer.

The Auld Grump - he was a gay accounting student in a frat of jocks.... The gods of farce must have blinked....
Sometimes even gods pause because they think they're being set up...

Most folks are considered guilty by the administration.  (But you would think that Campus Safety, whom we called Camping Safely, would learn my girlfriend's name instead of saying "Hay Stew's girlfriend, do you know where Stew is?")

But administrators pile the crap deep enough I almost feel like if you aren't guilty of something you are being excessively lazy.

Not Volbeat's best work, but Heaven Nor Hell has been sticking in my brain for the last few days.

Also, Rifts is the Liefeld of RPGs. Kernal of a good idea in there, but surrounded by useless and poorly thought out garbage.
Fairly gruesome power creep in each new book too.

Typical. I finally learn to drive and now self-driving cars are becoming a thing. Gah.
I would like to be the first, and probably the last, to thank you for the sacrifice of your time.   Grin

This seems like some good stuff.  Self driving cars will be a boon as well.

Sounds about right.  Nor do I consider "stability" to be much of a virtue, and dropping bombs on dictators facing rebellions seems like a good use of precision firepower.  (For a given value of precision, I'm good with hitting a "presidential" residence with a laser guided 2000 pound bomb or seven.)

But I'm also not against dropping some rocks on Mecca and Medina, from orbit.

Nice to see these folks doing some good, even if their proposed "solutions," to real problems, were terrible.

(Burger Horton's, anyone? LOL)
What about Tim King?  (Just to give away nothing about what they sell.)

Unrelated:  To the Eighth Circle with Keynesian economists, no country or continent should be the next Japan.
