    How could you not? Are there are other chat people who are do not know everything about Diana Rigg (or are not in love with her)?

    Should I regret giving you that avatar all those years ago?

    I think we all realised long ago that the avatar is better than I am

    Apo, how are you enjoying life after Destiny? I want to read what they announce in the weekly update on Thursday, but I think I'm probably gonna call it and move on to other things. My D3 wizard just hit 70, so I could start rifting with other people for a bit.

    Corbucci is pretty great too and The Mercenary and Companeros are fun because they have Marxist themes and that can be great for breaking people's brains. And Django set the gold standard for violence in a film. Hell QT stole the ear cutting scene from it. And Franco Nero before he got fat and old.

    My copy of Django came with a short (-8 min) film that Franco Nero did in his later years called The Last Gunslinger. It's a cool watch

    This caused a bit of drama last year in the GLBTQ sub-community at a hacker convention I went to, apparently.

    Nerd or not, there's not excuse for being sloppy, but asking someone who compiles their own device drivers to look like a Calvin Klein model is, well, it's something.

    My feelings are mixed. I never did all the things I wanted to do and I really miss all the guys (and one girl) with whom I used to play. I want to do all the stuff again.

    On the other hand, it feels much more natural to be back to chasing achievements and playing different games. Destiny really messed up my life and schedule and I don't think I am recovered yet. I still go to bed later and wake up earlier than I used to and wish it were otherwise.

    Diablo is cool, but that is another thing that destiny messed up, because everyone left Destiny at different times everyone I know played Diablo at different times, I couldn't let go when everyone else went off the play it.

    The swedish commander at the scene didn't know russian, and none of the russians knew english, but one officer knew german so it all went through him

    the swedish commander asked what his job on the submarine was

    "Ich bin der Navigationsexperte"

    "some expert you are"

    Back when Will was playing Far Cry 4 I had some half-thoughts about joining him in playing it, because I just knew I'd love that game. I'm playing it now, and I do love it, but the stats say that Will has completed 90% of it and played it for 80+ hours, so there's little chance of us bro-oping it now. Should've done it when I had the chance.

    The swedes had rangers nearby practicing storming the submarine, and plans being laid to get it to port at Karlskrona and forcing the crew out.

    A man who was sergeant in the coastal rangers at the time: "It is a less than comfortable situation to be the first man to climb down into a submarine that the crew does not want to leave"

    commander of Blekinge coast guard area, about when they went over there to film it (for a report to the heads of the Rikspoliti)

    "So we had these magazines, porn magazines. The boys looked in them in the evenings, well, so did we old folks now and then.

    So we laid a plan. We figured they'd be interested in that kind of thing.

    "Kommen sie", I said. And he came over and I said, let's go around. So they went behind the conning tower, out of sight of the soldiers ashore, and I opened my jacket, and the russian beamed like a sun.

    So we filmed, and they didn't mind at all."

    Bullshit becomes standard practice if you do it enough.

    Remember EVE and its $70 Monocle?

    Eh, it wasn't really a $70 monocle though.

    It was a billion isk monocle (or something, I forget the amount)

    Now you could spend $70 and buy that isk, but it's not like you can (legitimately) sell that isk for cash if you got it some other way.

    Lots and lots of players have several billion isk just lying around.

    Re-watching the West Wing and although I love it so it's hard not to wince at the way Sorkin writes for women. Even CJ gets patted on the head and talked down to by basically everyone else. It's difficult to believe she'd have gone on to become Chief of Staff is Sorkin was still writing in the 6th season.

    Quick question: At what age do you think it would be appropriate to show a young person the following movies? In the case of the last one, at what age might a young person be capable of not just watching it, but appreciating it?

    The Princess Bride
    The Blues Brothers
    O Brother Where Art Thou?
    V for Vendetta
    To Kill a Mockingbird

    These are some of my favorite movies, for wildly varying reasons.

    All except V for Vendetta are probably fine for kids 10-13. But kids are all different, so it depends more on the kid.

    The Princess Bride can be appreciated at almost any age

    it might take someone older to really appreciate all the wit in it though

    I'd say O Brother Where Art Thou and V for Vendetta are probably for teenagers and up

    dunno on the other two

    I love practically all the female characters on the show (especially CJ - I could listen to Alison Janney laugh forever), and it does get better as it goes on. Mandy is the smartest, least 'silly' female character on the show in the first season (Abbey is great but not really a regular), and she's slowly pushed aside until she vanishes entirely.
