#2015049 Marvel's The Defenders

Posted by CaptainDantes on 22 August 2017 - 03:24 AM

Iron fist is the worst thing about the defenders. Just a poor actor and I hate the childish character they made him. But Daredevil is the opposite for me - the best show and best actor of the bunch. Loved the Defenders (except most of the iron fist scenes) and enjoyed watching them interact. Pumped for season 3 of daredevil now.

debating on whether to buy Splatoon or not
i've never played it but I really want to understand what all the hype is about
I also still want to get odyssey as well... h

Def a different shooter than I've ever played before. I took a risk - wasn't sure if I'd like splatoon. I learned to love online multiplayer pretty quickly

I joined codex shortly after reading the count of monte cristo - best book I've ever read. I wanted something that related to the book and I felt that SinbadTheSailor was too long of a username. Even though it's only 2 more characters :p

All I get at my house are pidgey, spearow, rattata, zubat and the occasional drowzee. Though drowzee are in hoards on campus.
I've never even seen weedle. D:

Oh I was able to get on and stay on for a while today!!!
All the Pokestops are kinda far away though, might have to go for a late night drive lmao, that's how much I want to play this thing.
I've managed to pick up a few pokemon...has anybody figured out a good strategy on what kind of team to put together, which ones to bother leveling up, etc?

I finally evolved pidgeot to into pidgeot. CP of around 450! Considering pidgeys are everywhere, I'm going to try and get a few more pidgeots to battle with and throw into gyms while I'm waiting to evolve my other Pokemon

I don't even know how to catch anything. Not a fan thus far.


Once a pokemon shows up in your radiating circle, touch it and you'll go into catch mode. Use your camera and look around until you see it. Then touch the pokeball at the bottom and swipe up to throw - try to hit within the circle around the pokemon that pops up. If you hit in the green you're more likely to catch it. Does that help?

Here's my 'in a nutshell', neither will really be able to make too much of an impact thanks to Congress, advisors, etc. BUT, one of them is going to have to TALK to the heads of other countries. Face to face. Sagan help us if it's the guy that feels the need to defend his dick size on national television.


I agree. I don't think it's the end of America or that America will be crippled if one or the other gets chosen. But if they use executive action as much as Obama has they can at least do SOMEthing to change the shape of the US for better or for worse.


On a side-note - apparently Regan was seen as a loose cannon when he was running for president and turned out ok. But he never made so many misogynistic statements or so many with racist undertones. And when asked about his ties to the KKK he distanced himself immediately, while Trump didn't.

#1984837 Trump?

Posted by CaptainDantes on 03 July 2016 - 09:59 PM

 If you're not happy, vote for the other party, or vote libertarian, or write in a vote, or hell - don't vote at all. But the system is the system, and it's what it is.



I guess @HiMyNameIsJunjie is right - this isn't the debate. However, in the US the political parties themselves have much more control over who their nominee is than the general public. When running to be the Republican or Democratic nominee there are "superdelegates" that can vote how they want to vote - I don't understand any further than that haha. But there were many instances when Bernie Sanders beat Hillary Clinton in a state popular vote, but Clinton still got more points because more superdelegates voted for her. So that's another thing to debate for another time :p

And it's obviously very different from the media manipulation/grandstanding/playing to crowds thing he did to get to this stage.


I feel like that's all he's done. I've listened to many of his speeches and actually thought I might vote for him at first. But then I realized he really hasn't said ANYthing. I've been searching and he hasn't laid out any plans except the generic "defeat ISIS," "Build a wall," and literally calling people names. The closest he's come to actually explaining any of it is saying "Believe me. It will be the best. Believe me." I've listened to him speak on many occasions and he constantly changes his opinion to suit his audience. Over and over he back-tracks and flip-flops so much any normal politician would be ruined. Personally - I do believe has has racist and misogynistic undertones to many of the things he says and posts to twitter and it gives me a bad feeling in my gut. Not to mention - the way he uses his media coverage to promote his own businesses makes him look like a slime ball to me.


I don't think that he's wrong about the wall. Any country has a right to protect its borders - and these people are coming in illegally. But I don't think he really understands that making Mexico pay for the wall will probably fail. He keeps bringing up trade and commerce as the reason Mexico will pay, but I feel like if we stop all trade with them Americans will be pissed at how many products we wouldn't have or angry at the inflated prices.

Not liking the presidential candidates is not good enough of a reason to not vote.


You can still go vote for your local senators (which arguably have more influence on your life.)

Your vote has power. Use it.


Agreed. Just look at Brexit - a ton of people either didn't vote or didn't take their vote seriously and regretted it after the results came out.
