  1. Okay. It is no secret that I am a huge WWII buff, or at least it probably won't shock anyone here to learn it. I love a great many topics related to the war but one of my absolute favourites since childhood is fighter planes. I had a huge collection of model airplanes I'd assembled myself which took up almost half the space of one room. I just got hold of a DVD with a TV program about WWII German fighter jets, something which normally fascinates me endlessly. I sat down ready for an hour of happy geeking out. Then the narrator began. And droned on and on and on. I have never before heard anyone on TV with such a terribly boring voice. After a while I actually fell ASLEEP. The last I remembered was something about having trouble getting the High Command to allocate resources enough to developing their jets and then I woke up to something about how fuel shortages made it nearly impossible for the German jets to take to the air in the spring of '45. That narrator was so boring that he made me sleep through almost a whole program about one of the topics most fascinating to me throughout my life. HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE.
  2. *cackle* Good work, mlooney, we reeled another one in! *high fives*
  3. A lot of games include these. For example, Star Wars: The Old Republic has the Slave Leia outfit available for purchase for players. *sigh*
  4. It sounds a little bit like the awful Mindjack game. However, its plot made even less sense than the above.
  5. That is easy to disprove. Just arrange for still another duplicate and have all three show in public at the same time. ... ...what? >.>
  6. I agree absolutely.
  7. No no. A second person shooter is a game where all you do is look directly at the face of the person doing the shooting. He runs around looking grim and shoots a lot and you can hear explosions and screaming in the background.
  8. Have them all stuffed into the same cage and send in a lion tamer armed with whip and chair. That might work.
  9. I like the notion that it might be Nanase. Failing her, the easiest way to fake the C-Girl is to have a wizard do it. Since wizards can learn the spells of others, one would only need spells of flight, disguise and strength, and these all seem fairly common. Of course, that would mean that when Elliot asks Mr. Verres how the DGB pulled it off, he will only answer "A wizard did it."
  10. I am still waiting for someone to introduce a second person shooter.
  11. There doesn't have to be suspicion on Nanase at all. All she would need to do would be to appear as Cheerleadra in a situation where Elliot is present. If she hadn't been visible as Nanase there earlier, there would be no reason for anyone to think of her at all.
  12. loving language

    They're goddamn Gorilla and they want to make sure that we know it.
  13. Glad to hear it. Now we just need to get the Prof back on the right track, too.
  14. I really, really do not blame you. Linkara has a knack for finding truly awful stuff and ripping it to shreds. That particular comic is nails-on-chalkboard agonising.
  15. [Content note: Pet illness.] My wife's cat Saki is struggling with a very serious infection. Saki was born with a noticeable overbite and it has made her very prone to infections in her mouth and throat. She has been on Prednisol treatments for a rather long time now, something which concerned her vet because of long term issues but alternate treatment methods did not yield good results and without it the poor thing was just so miserable. We have been aware that this might shorten Saki's life but accepted the tradeoff so she would at least have a good life until her time came. We just hadn't expected that it might come this fast. She might still survive for now, but right now it isn't looking good. Both I and my wife are stressing over this and I've had some trouble sleeping.
  16. At least it was the stuff of good comic books and not the kind of codswallop Liefeld crapped onto paper.
  17. Calling HQ. Go to Condition Yellow. I say again, go to Condition Yellow. We have just received collaborating evidence and the stars are almost right.
  18. Well, arguably they had ruins from still earlier ages that by now have sunk so far into ruination that they have either vanished, not been found yet or subsumed into the Danish Ministry of Education.
  19. Something within your specialty that is done badly in a movie or comic is always more annoying than other slips. I have the same experience myself. When someone uses language in a pretentious way in a story I read and does it badly, it sends me straight up a wall. (*grumble grumble* Bloody C.J. Cherryh's Morgaine who couldn't conjugate 'thou' and 'thee' properly and just used 'thee' all the time. Maybe Cherryh thought Morgaine sounded cool, but to me she sounded like frigging Jar-Jar Binks.)
  20. Moo mee mowr.
  21. http://www.egscomics.com/egsnp.php?id=591 Mee moo?
  22. Get TREEFIXTM, the humane way to keep your arboreal friends from going into heat!
  23. My concordance, NSFW, primarily relies on Pratchett, Gaiman and to a lesser degree GRRM. Normally the pastor reads from the Buggre Alle This bible.
  24. I'm sorry to hear. Somebody really ought to have a word with Treebeard about that sometime.
  25. Big talk from the Pharaoh whose kingdom STARTED the game several thousands of years ago. Did the Saqqara Mummies score even a single win back then?
