    Shot show was expected. The world's largest reservoir breaking and turning out to be made entirely of sewage, flooding the valley with wastewater is another thing entirely. It's a matter of degrees.

    True, but that story is one that fits - he was attacking them because they were supposed to send soldiers for some other battle and did not, and nothing angered the Khan like failing to meet such...

    If I remember my history correctly, Genghis Khan's deathbed order was for the death of an entire culture, and his troops obeyed, sacking the city, killing every last inhabitant, and then razing it to...

    Maybe a chance of the Brady treatment, he is playing against them now.

    If it was Philly, we know it would be the A-Rod treatment, if he was lucky...:p

    It took 1 Russian soldier per 8 people in Finland for Stalin to eventually win that war. And that's counting everyone from newborns to the elderly, both men and women.

    Helsinki sits on top of a giant bomb shelter that can hold the entire city population. When it comes to the possibility of being invaded, the whole population puts American doomsday preppers to...

    The most Finland is ready to do is bury any invaders alongside the last set. But they have been prepping for that since the 1940s.

    Well, that's what I was referring to when I brought it up, even though earlier in my post I said that only a radical or two would actually want it. All groups seem to have a radical or two.

    Absolutely don't fall in love with Mr. Murdock. It's the most lethal descriptor in Marvel comics, and I remind you that they also have the descriptor "Failed Darth Vader" after the Lucas Films...

    Probably not, although I am sure there are some rabble rousers who'd want it back. Of interesting note, however, is that in the region the language is Karelian (also called Karjala), a Finnish...

    "Sinister is a SYSTEM. Even rebels against the system are merely a part of that system. They are the system testing itself for weakness."

    I remember something close to that being said once in...

    I think he means the power to be a long term character without needing to possess someone.

    No one in the thread should mind. Can't say about posting rules - you can post a scan or three per issue (I think) but I'm not sure if that is a per post limit or a total limit. Although I am also...

    Or even if she isn't, she could be counting on her healing factor to eventually evict the spores, likely at a critical moment.

    The history of red baiting in the US makes me think it's a very bad idea.

    I think they also want to backdate the loss of copyright a few decades. Not sure how that would work out, outside of a probable ex post facto violation.

    That depends on how you want to portray them. If you want the earliest X-Men to be teenagers, then you probably want your principle cast to be twenty-somethings at the oldest. If you want Jean to...

    I am more familiar with seeing any potential contender charged, jailed, and declared ineligible to run by the courts - a rule by law rather than a rule of law that we mostly (or somewhat) live under...

    Well, technically Putin controls elections by abusing the law rather than the election directly. Gain enough popularity, get arrested. And I'm sure his nearly total control over the media helps...

    The advantage of someone with a big name like Cavill is he might not end up with all his good scenes unceremoniously left on the cutting room floor.

    A lot of it is going to depend on how his rapport with his booth mate ends up being. Chemistry can make or break an announcing team.

    I'll laugh if enough teachers manage to use that day to teach about the victims of red baiting instead. Or failing that, anger the Putin lovers by teaching about the Holodomor.

    I'm not sure if it was to keep the Constitution class for the movies, or a deliberate choice to move away from the look for TNG, but the stories for some of the models are interesting. Supposedly,...

    How does anyone who backs Putin think they get to whine thier way into the high ground about freedom of speech? How many dead reporters can Russia claim? How many people get arrested for...
