re: In which we ponder the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (spoilers likely) - Methuselah
Yeah, everybody seems to ave been stealing way back then. Some of these comics pioneers come across as pretty Shady characters. Martin Goodman, who founded Timely, the precursor to Marvel.operated through multiple shell companies and kinds of fun stuff. But yeah, I agree that Captain Marvel fit...

re: In which we ponder the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (spoilers likely) - Methuselah
I'll give this to the DC (or really Fawcett) version of Captain Marvel. He has one of the best visual presentations in comics. His costume is classic and yet unique at the same time. I always thought his origin was kind of lame. Can't say how his stories were other than I tried a couple of...

[quote]So in terms of next characters to see in films, now that Ant-Man is out there in public. My list: 1. Dr. Strange ( Can support his own film) 2. Black Panther (Can either support his own film, or Wakanda can be the location for a Cap movie) 3. Wonder Man - Although he might make a bett...

re: Crackpot ASOIAF Theories SPOILERS - Methuselah
[quote]I'm divided. Both of these characters I think more than any others that I swing between them dying or surviving the series. Sansa had her wolf killed and I can't think of any marriage prospects that the series would provide her after the war. Arya I'm confident is going to have a sad or bitte...

re: Game of Thrones S4E2 - "The Lion and the Rose" (SPOILERS) Readers thread - Methuselah
Yeah. The fact that they put it outside instead of inside struck me more than moving it from night to day. Not sure why they did that. Maybe to save costs on a building huge enough to fit all those people in? I don't think the room they set the red wedding would have done it and I'm trying to rem...

re: Do you have a favorite nature or animal show? - Methuselah
I enjoyed Steve Irwin's show when it was originally on. But he always did seem to be needlessly dangerous in the situations he put himself in. (And ironcially the situation he got killed in would not have seemed to be one of the more dangerous ones). I've watched the show on replay a couple of ti...

Do you have a favorite nature or animal show? - Methuselah
I'm always awake for 5 am before the rest of the house and can't do much without making noise to wake everyone up. So I've been finding myself watching Animal channel - watching shows on at that time like Orangutan Island, Escape to Chimp Eden and Big Cat Diary. Anybody watch these kind of shows...

re: 300+ Nevada ranchers and militia stage an armed insurrection against the USBLM - Methuselah
According to [link=(http://www.cbsnews.com/news/nevada-rancher-cliven-bundy-inspects-cattle-for-damage-by-feds/)]this article[/link] the underlying dispute seems to be more about the grazing of wild horses v. cattle than about a turtle. To be honest, I don't care that much about wild horses, tu...

re: 300+ Nevada ranchers and militia stage an armed insurrection against the USBLM - Methuselah
So what's the upshot? Has the guy got away with not paying the fees? The articles linked above says the BLM backed off and returned his cattle. Is that still the status quo? If so, I'd expect you'll see a lot of people who owe money to the govt. and lose their cases in court gathering up a coupl...

re: Does anyone still bowl in leagues anymore or is that kind of passé? - Methuselah
1- I think it's probably a cyclical thing. Sometimes it's more popular, sometimes less. But there is always likely a core that remains. I think bowling leagues have been shown on just about every sitcom ever broadcast over the years (slight exaggeration there?) 2- Regarding that article Kafka ...

re: In which we ponder the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (spoilers likely) - Methuselah
One thing that occured to me regarding the marvel cinematic properties as a whole is this: Do you think that in some ways Marvel benefited from having other studios do some of their early major movies? Here's my thought process: - Marvel got to see what other studios did right (and there was...

re: Forest Gump Debate: Did Forest Gump Have a Good Life? - Methuselah
Hell yes. He had a good life. He overcame his handicaps. He was successful athletically, militarily, financially and, in the long run romantically and family wise. And hell, he found joy and contentment in little things like mowing the fields and running. So, I'd argue he had a very good li...

Some non PW thoughts from the show: - Loved the Roose/Ramsey interaction. Pretty true to the books. But is it just me or did that happen a lot later in the books? Sure seemed that way to me. - Theon/Reek was REALLY into Stockholm Syndrome mode. It's almost unbelievable that he wouldn't h...

I don't care for the changes in the Tyrion/Shae interaction either. But he DID find out from Varys that his sister (and therefore his father)knew about her and that Tywin had threatened to kill the next whore Tyrion was with. Not too much of a leap to say he was lying to protect her. They co...
