    I just finished the episode with the flashback about Matt and Foggy's college days.

    It seemed like 95% filler.

    I mean, that episode had a lot of character development for both of them, and some big changes in the relationship between those two. I guess by some definitions that could be "filler" in that it didn't necessarily advance the Big Plot (although one could argue that Matt's development there is actually a necessary part of the advancement of that Big Plot) but I liked the slower exploration of why these things mattered so much to these characters. It made them feel more real to me.

    I have never read a big comics event and not hated it by the end of it. There are great moments, great parts, but it has always been a bad experience for me.

    I hit level 20 on my Titan in Destiny last night, and the game informed me that I had climbed every mountain there is to climb.

    Still doing story missions on Mars and completing pve bounties, but I guess I need to figure out what the next steps for progression are soon.

    I only read bits and pieces of it and can't remember much, honestly. But I was not compelled to read more.

    Would much rather read a self contained story any day of the week, or a series of those.

    I also tend to dislike team books.

    Gear. Gear you get now comes with Light as a stat, and the more you have, the more your level goes up (current max level is 32).

    Start Striking. Also, now's the time to cash in Vanguard and Cruicible marks on vendor purple gear, if you have any. When you hit 26, you can run Vault of Glass.

    @LoserForHireX - If you haven't read them, here are the x books I would not miss

    Grant Morrison's New X Men - redefined the x men and mutant society as a whole. Sets up the modern x men like Claremont set up the x men before Morrison.
    Whedon's Astonishing X Men - direct continuation of New X men. Great story. Important changes to characters.
    House of M and all the follow up books - this set the new status quo of the low mutant world.
    Messiah Complex, Cable volume 2, messiah war, 2nd coming (and the stuff leading up to 2nd coming where the xmen move to San Francisco).

    Really, I would read all of Astonishing X-men from when they move to San Francisco on.

    also do the daily missions at the highest level you can

    the weekly regular will fireteam match, so you should try those out

    the nightfall weekly doesn't match, though, and doing those solo is pretty much impossible

    especially if you're not 31 or 32

    I'm amazed at how quickly the reasons to go there have diminished over six months.

    Annihilation works really well because its really tight. Its all self contained stories. No ongoing books were folded in.

    So I got flagged a few days ago but missed it.

    To answer the question even though spool is apparently not here to read it, I was the one who said there was a racial divide over preference for grape or strawberry jam. I noticed it while in the Navy, and a couple of black crew members confirmed.

    Apparently it is a purely cultural phenomena mostly in the south.

    I hate going to restaurants alone and my German coworker left. Hotel does not have a minimal restaurant.

    I wonder if this town has delivery. I would like to deliver the food directly to my mouth.
